Tears Of The Tree

Nae's Nest —  February 12, 2014 — 3 Comments

Tears Of The Tree

Fire burns in the land

Flames shouting out

Beating a path

A trail of havoc

And wrath

A great flame

Rises up, lashes out

A searing flash

Across my back

Pain and agony

Where to run

Where to hide

Trail of fire

After me

Burning flesh

Searing pain

Agony

I will die

I will die

Hiding under

A great willow

Weeping branches

Surround me

Tears of the tree

Envelope me

My tears mingle

With the tree

Flame is searching

Flame all around

Tears of the tree

Shelter me

Holding me close

Willow so mighty

Willow so strong

What makes you cry?

What makes you cry?

I cry for you

I cry for all

I will shelter

From the storm

I will hold

And keep you warm

I am compassion

My tears are for you

Stay with me

If you believe

I will protect thee

Nothing will

Harm you

Have faith
Have hope

You may rest

I will soothe

Do not cry

Do not cry

Leaving on the

Great tree

Feeling the strength

Shielding me

Weeping branches

Protecting from harm

No more pain

No cause for alarm

I am so tired

The flame is

Burning low

Small fire

Losing

Power

It will die

It will die

Evergreen

Green is life as it rises from the ground

Masterfully molded and sculpted

The greatest artforms around

Evergreen the earth, fields and trees

Breath in the air

All is fresh and clean

Another day has come

I watch the birth of the sun

A masterpiece in the sky

A new sun to greet

This can’t be taken from me

It lives deep inside

Such beauty abounds

Feeling energized

Giving me ambition

To live another day

Another memory to create

Another day to give praise

I reach within myself

I find a memory

I post it in my heart,

I carry it with me

I will pull it out and look at it often

It is a part of me,

Something long forgotten

I focus on it and it brings me a smile

It gives me new hope

Helping me to walk another mile

Everyday is a rebirth

Everyday is a blessing

Today is another miracle

I am here to enjoy

Dust to Dust

Nae's Nest —  November 3, 2013 — Leave a comment

Standing strong with the trees

My feet firmly planted

United with nature

With a soul that is haunted

My branches turn

Underground

No longer reaching up

Instead returning

Dust to dust

Finding my place

In a new world

Will there be sunshine?

Will there be trees?

There is no more sorrow

No pain or disease

It is the final home

I  wonder how it must be

The final resting place

With Christ eternally

Butterfly Train

Nae's Nest —  August 25, 2013 — Leave a comment

Summer is long gone. The birds have taken flight. It is time for the butterfly train, to follow the sun on to paradise

This is my last time around. My last stanza, withered and brown. My fall has come and  I’m traveling with the leaves

Their color lost and dried, their beauty now history

Soon Winter’s blanket will cover the dead. A snow-white cover, a beauty cold as death

I will see the light of God, within me He shines.

His light a warm glow, I can see it, just up ahead

This moment leaving me breathless, I can see Him with His arms open

Bringing me in, calling me home

Before Him I will bow down, I will see the scars upon His  feet

I will kiss each one, knowing there are many more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For every scar upon His body were due to you and me

So that we might be saved,  He gave willingly,

So I might be here, at this time and on this day

Who am I to mourn my death? Who am I to cry?

My shame overcomes me, as I looked into HIs eyes

I kicked and screamed, trying to hold onto life

But He awaits, to welcome me in

I still do not know why I had to die

But who am I to question, the God of all man?

If He chooses not to heal me, He must have a plan

As I make Heaven my home,soon I will understand

I will ask Dear Father, to bless those who cry for me

Please send them each a butterfly and know I am happy and free

I will watch over each and everyone, I will always be by your side

Whenever they see the butterfly, May you always think of me

Renee Robinson

 

I dedicate this poem to my Aunts: Leona, Judy, Anna Marie, Louise, Rebecca, Nancy, Mary Elizbeth, Susie, Trish…and Bernice is already a Butterfly.  This is to you my lovely, sweet, dear Aunts.  I love you all.  Always and Forever.

Spice of Life

Nae's Nest —  August 12, 2013 — 1 Comment

My someday is now, it is today,

There is always tomorrow, even in a grave

Try not to focus only on the bad

Hang on to the good, the happy

Throw away the sad

Sometimes a good day

Seems so far away

Gather up  prayers

Saved for rainy days

Everything happens for a reason

Many times we know not why

We have a cold and dark season

Love grows fonder

When bad times

It survives

For just like a spice

It puts zest

Back into our lives

We’ll Get Together

Nae's Nest —  July 25, 2013 — 2 Comments

 

Just another birthday, need not worry.

I will be at the next one, but now I’m in a hurry.

Just another holiday, but I can’t come.

I am going out with friends, for a bit of fun.

I can’t come today and tomorrow isn’t good.

I have errands to run, but I wish I could.

My thoughts are always with you.

And my prayers too.

We’ll have to get together.

Sometime real soon.

I love and I miss you.

Where has the time gone?

You have always been there.

The one I count on.

Always knowing what to say.

And Knowing what to do.

Always drying my tears.

Morning, night or noon.

Now you are gone.  What will I do?

I can’t believe it.  Is much too soon.

No more birthdays.

No more holidays.

How will I go on?  I am so afraid.

I made all those plans. I never included you.

Taking you for granted.  I always gave an excuse.

Now I come to visit.  I stand at your grave.

A heart full of regrets that I know you forgave.

I should have made time.  I had all the time in the world.

I never made time for you.  Now it’s gone in a whirl.

A minute is slow. A minute is forever.

It is gone in a tick. I thought I was clever.

My thoughts are always with you.

And my prayers too.

We’ll have to get together.

Sometime real soon.
