Christianity

An Open Mind

What would it be like

If instead of voicing our opinion,

We chose to listen

To another’s point of view?

 

If what we believe,

We just cannot agree.

Does that make one wrong?

And the other one right?

 

The truth we both claim,

We just cannot see,

From a different point of view,

Perhaps, it is the same.

 

Must everything we read,

Relate to what we believe.

How dull our thoughts become,

If, in all the choices, we only chose one.

Those Years of Yesterday

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;
Peaceful voices softly whisper of the memories to be found.
Friends and families gathering, there’s closeness once again;
So long ago, those times and faces: those memories creeping in.

The fleeting years have faded so much of what has been:
Some gather now, like yesterday, as if it was back then.
It seems like not so long ago, a time when we were young:
Growing old was impossible; drifting apart just wasn’t done.

Truth removes illusion with the passing of the time;
And things appear as they used to be, but only in our minds.
It will never be the same again; the way it was, the way we were;
The times have changed, life moves on; the past becomes a blur.

Standing in the stillness, the snowflakes falling ‘round;
Peaceful voices softly whispering of the memories to be found.
A tear springs from my heart to kiss the newly fallen snow:
I realize that it’s time to let this moment go.

I can walk along the back roads of my memories anytime:
And find so many waiting thoughts, these shadows in my mind.
The mist of once upon a time will always have its say;
As friends and families gather in those years of yesterday.
