My Shining Son
Yours is the light that shone through me
Yours is the heart that loves ever truly
Yours is the love offered unconditionally
Yours is the truth accepted gratefully
You are the blessed one with new hope
You are the old soul who in me awoke
You are the Angel with wings to cope
You are the poem I freshly re-wrote
I am the grateful one with you as mine
I am the receiver of these gifts sublime
I am the thankful for knowing you in time
I am the better as I touch this new divine
We are as perfect as two hearts can be
We are so special the world must see
We are all love, honesty and intimacy
We are forever with spirit's set free!
This rainswept Vancouver evening, rather than go to a party I was invited to, I perused through pics ... Finding this enchanting photograph of my 8 year young homeschooler, after he was taken by MCFD, and not yet, returned to me.
The year was 2005 and I feel like we both have been through a couple of world wars. And, survived! Yet, within me, and surely, both of us, lingers this longing for an innocence lost, never to be seen or felt, again.
Thus, I choose this image as a heart rendering reminder of a beauty that lays embossed within the beautiful bowels of my lonely, lost heart, now being re-found and restored. After wandering in bewildered anxiety for the longest loneliest while, I am slowly picking up the precious pieces of a fragmented dream and putting our loving lives back together, again.
I captured this picture of Kaelin at the gate to our cozy cottage in magical Marpole. This seemingly tragic time was the most blissful period for us. Torn apart and returned unto one another, we appreciated every stolen second we were given or not ... Apart, we prayed and affirmed and held onto hope. It worked. Bringing us back together came about because we believed.
The power of love can transfrom anything. I am, I have and I offer ... living proof!!!!
