Say Yes

What is it you’re waiting for
The invitation clear
You see the path before you
And you know that change is near

Sure it can be frightening
There’s always fear with change
All that now seems settled
You’re about to rearrange

There is no need to abandon
What has gone before
It just needs time for resting
For what is yet in store

So nothing are you losing
You’re just expanding you
Another piece of knowledge
For what someday you’ll do


Few times in a lifetime
The tumblers fall in place
Releasing pure perfection
And all its wondrous grace

Is it preparation
Or just God given skill
Add some determination
And then unbending will

Sure there’s bumps and bruises
And pain along the way
Sometimes trying moments
But through it all you play

All the years of training
Come down to just one game
And a moment of perfection
As the crowd screams out your name

Your Inner Voice

How long will you practice
How far will you dream
To put your best foot forward
To be on the winning team

Who’s to say you’re good enough
And worth some words of praise
Who’s to write your story
When you reach your end of days

All the words you search for
You won’t hear with your ears
The answers live inside you
And will for all your years

You control the story
The beginning and the end
So you control the message
That to the world you send

A Hero’s Welcome

Time to come home dear brother
Your tour of duty through
You’ve given as much as anyone
Could be expected to do

Just a few steps further
The smoke will start to clear
Others here will guide you
You have no need of fear

You have not failed your brothers
You clearly gave it all
And through your selfless actions
Others will hear the call

So take your place of honor
Among those who have gone before
And know you will be remembered
For now and evermore

Make The Most Of

Sail across the seven seas
With not a single care
Or soar up to the heavens
With nothing but a prayer

What will bring you closure
What will give you peace
Love doesn’t have to end
Just because a life might cease

There is so much to connections
The truth behind the veil
The colors all seem brighter
And makes your world seem pale

Don’t look too hard for answers
The truth you can’t comprehend
But rather make the most of
Each day on Earth you spend
