    I live in a place few have ventured
    Full of flowers, shaded by trees,
    Illuminated by His light as I am
    Serenaded by the songs of sparrows;

    I am visited by all kinds of animals
    From the gentleness of the bunny to
    The intimidation of the mighty lion
    Surrounding me as I rest today;

    There are time when I take a walk
    Into this world in which you live to
    See the activities of today build a new
    Form of yesterday called tomorrow;

    I see the pain and the confusion as well
    As the love and the hope surrounded by
    The wishes and dreams fighting to live
    Against the faults of destruction and lore;

    I see you, vessel, sitting in the midst of
    All the world has to offer and yet never
    Allowing the things of today destroy the
    Path that leads you into the joy of tomorrow;

    I rarely speak nor do I interrupt your walk for
    I can only watch as you make the choices from
    Steps ordered from above being tampered with
    By snares and obstacles leading to destruction;

    Can I change the path you walk? Am I the one
    To protect you from the memories of your past?
    Can I sweep you up into the raft I ride only to
    Keep you floating until you can stand on your own?

    I want to carry you into my garden, to rest among
    The flowers and enjoy the aromas of love carried
    On the petals of a tulip who hugs closely to the
    Rose as the bumblebee drinks of their nectar;

    But I realize that the only way for you to experience
    The peace the passes all understanding, that keeps
    Me standing when all the world around me falls apart
    Can only come from walking a moment in my shoes;

    That I wish never occur…

    Close your eyes and rest your head on your pillow,
    Inhale deeply to allow the joy of life to overtake your
    Thoughts so that the true joy of life, the real peace
    you seek can embrace you in the midst of meditation;

    True peace is found within.
    My garden is open for all the visit, but
    YOUR garden comes from the Comforter…
    I have found my peace…
