What do we hold on to?
Threads of meaningless
Threads of memories
Warm, wild, cold, contagious
Tie them tightly
Thread them flat
In a box
Hold them till the moment of release
The release of letting go
Renewed future energy
Untie the threads
What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy
It has eyes to see misery and want
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men
This is what love looks like
We are shadows thrown upon the wall
We are images, what others see
How we see ourselves, true
Or what we think we perceive
Or want to be.
We press our nose
To the glass of our soul
And think that whatever should come
Tempest or not
We will see our own
Shadow cast upon the wall.
We will remember that
We are our company in our aloneness,
That our image is that
Of belief battling unbelief,
Both in ourselves
And when we are in the shadowlands.
Promises now made forever
Face the unknown years to come
Weaving hopes and dreams together
For two lives to share as one
Keep us safe when storms assail us
Fill us with Your grace again
Hold us close when courage fails us
Let it be Your love that reigns

The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
