The Labyrinth of Life


The Labyrinth of Life
The labyrinth of life seems a mystery
Yet we walk it every day
Each step we take we contemplate
As we wind about our way

We gather thoughts and visual things
Along this walk of life
We even meet others along the way
Walking through joy and strife

We may stop sometimes just to see
If we can glimpse the end
It may appear close or faraway
There always is a bend

For Labyrinths' being what they are
Paths with many turns
We journey on and meditate
Even pray about concerns

There is a pathway we all must take
Before we reach our goal
Gaining knowledge from each step we take
It touches our very soul

So look around and then look up
you'll see what's always there
The glory of your inner Light
You'll soon  become aware

That the Light that shines inside of you
Comes from the Light above
It guides you each and every step
It comes with perfect Love

So walk your Labyrinth of Life each day
Be proud of who you are
For with each step you take you'll find
The strength of a shining star

For God lives in  and shines through you
Just as a tiny seed
Nurturing  and feeding  your thirsty soul
You have  all you need

You'll  grow in Spirit with Light and Love
An inner strength you'll find
A tranquil Peace will prevail your thoughts
As you line up soul and mind

So come on and take the labyrinth of life
Walk  in your  own way
Each step  is a sacred journey to take
As night turns into day

Oh Nina, so, so lovely.

I love this part especially
"

That the Light that shines inside of you
Comes from the Light above
It guides you each and every step
It comes with perfect Love"

one of these days your book of poems will be published...they are far to beautiful not to be read by a wider audience.
