Wandering in thoughts

I touch the night
There is no fear of darkness
Moonlight comforts me
Starlight always there

Walk with me a while
Join my ways in thought
Sometimes we fear nothing
Yet take flight when at images

Seek out those dark places
There look at them as you should
Only a shadow you will say
Fliting light catches the darkness

Bring in your dreams of being
Drift as you need, scatter the light
Hold reality in your palms
Tell all that you see them

Talk to them of what you see
Hide nothing of the truth
These talks will only heal
Then sift out bring in a love

I can only tell you of this love
It is held in strings about everything
Holding this known universe always
Each belongs to the other

There is no escape from this love
It matters not what you believe
Or who you believe in
There see unconditional love

I will walk with you always
Among Aspens sweeping boughs
Watching Uluru change in life’s colours
Across Oceans, deserts and fields of food

There I shall walk with you, as you need
I shall talk of many things,
There in the shadows of night I will be
Casting my own shadow outward

One day after the now has ended
I will have no shadow to cast
This physical creature will be
There in all the things you need

as always your words have given me great pleasure . Lately my thoughts have been wandering to happier times and your words bring comfort

Let your mercy spill on all those
burning hearts in hell( L.Cohen)

That you are searching or are in need of comfort and that my write can feel a small comfort is lovely..
Just believe in yourself and know that there are many friends out here in this Ether thing, that walk with you, and you may lean on us as you wish..
Thank you for the words from you they make send me a comfort..
