Many years you have walked with me
I carry a piece of your spirit inside
The best part of me
A noble place that often exists
In pure silence beyond
Superficial trappings of life...
Awakening in me a thirst for truth
Soul searching longing to arrive
At a higher place of peace
Unconditional love and grace
You open mine eyes
To what I have always known...
As the wind blows in the storm
There is no fear in me
I hold your truth firmly
Radiating every need-full time
Protecting me in the purity
Of silent truth and love...
Mentoring my heart's purpose
Opening with empathy unending
Instructing my spiritual knowing
Arriving beyond earthly limitations
Unshaken firmly planted
In faith and benevolence...
Clasping my hands in honor
A solemn reminder and token
Of gratitude expressed emotionally
Finding my own conscious mediation
Between body and soul
Apparition incorporeal being...
You walked this earth in truth
Beauty lived inside your gentle compassion
Soulful knowledge imparted
Bestowed to all who were
Privileged when touched by your
Unwavering faith and purpose...
Thank you Leo Buscaglia
