Be – A Poem

when your loved one is
unwell, or struggling
whether physically
or emotionally
you want to do
anything and everything
to help them feel better

but sometimes we find
there’s nothing much
we can do
other than simply
be
with them
for being is
more intimate
more profound
than doing

perhaps what they need
more than ever
is for us to
be
there for them
with complete attention
with full presence
not to mention
kisses and cuddles

In the Here-and-Now Land – A Poem

in the here-and-now land
there’s no good or bad
there’s no right or wrong
there’s no past or future

everything exists
in perfect harmony
everyone is connected
in complete oneness

thoughts are just visitors
doubts are mere trespassers
they may constantly come and go
they may linger around for awhile
they may try and take control
but they simply cannot survive
in the here-and-now land

breathe in the sweet air of bliss
swim in the deep ocean of euphoria
dance to the endless music of being
paint with the infinite colours of love
or simply sit still in heavenly silence
welcome to the here-and-now land
