What matters

“What really matters
cannot be measured”

Life

Life

“Far beyond the path
your own footsteps
on soft white plains

Leaving choices behind
future unknown
open and naked

Forging ahead
clouds changing
never the same

Nature warmly embracing
reflecting your life
in sharp crusts of snow”

Your songs

Our Song

“I play your songs
read your paintings
cry your tears

We were the same
you and I”

Hands

Hands

“Your hands my friend
we will not meet again

The loss remains
a memory trove
nobody won”

Pathway

Pathway

“We all have a path
with no destination
or purpose

The path makes choices
your life must follow”

Svaberg

Svaberg*

“A shiny rock
Reflected by the sea
The wind elsewhere”

*Svaberg is a rock by the shore, softly rounded by sea, sand and ice.

Returning

Returning

“Somewhere
there is a turning point
back to the beginning

Somewhere in the mind
returning
to the origins of you

Somewhere in that memory
along the way
your footprints linger

Somewhere in the past
you find
the gratitude of being

Accepting
you crossed that path again
life’s reward sustained
well within yourself”

Eternity

Eternity

“If you believe
in an ideal
not yet attainable

An ideal
not to be clouded
by the reality of now

Let the short waves
of our existence
form the long wave
of eternity”

Coincidences

Coincidences of life

“A random encounter
recollected
throughout your journey

The joys of the unknown

A life well lived.”

memories

Memories

“Somewhere, some time,
you will turn around,
back to the start;

Return as you must,
memories flowing,
passing judgement
on your beginnings;

Footprints of life,
reflecting your past,
and in that pathway,
seeds of gratitude grow;

And only there,
will you ever find,
the truth within,
deeply buried,
in your own well.”

sail

Sail

“Sail your own words
steadily
whatever the wind”

preserve

“Sail with the wind.
Catch the nightly breeze.

Preserve

The glow of enthusiasm
The warmth of engagement
The mysterious energy of persistence

Preserve

The respect of the individual
The sense of insanity
The rhythm of the waves

Preserve

The humility of life
The honesty of truth
The wonderment of your voyage”
