Inspired from a comment on irish katie by wilddesirechats
Below is wilddesirechats comment. I thank you for allowing me to use your words.
Wanting is a natural thing. It’s called ‘heart’s desires’. And you should never stop wanting for something, because then the flame will burn out.
This is from those words.
Want, as natural as breath itself
the longing for life’s wishes
not materialistic but for other
Want, should never be forgotten
or left alone like the last
single flower in bloom
but opened and expressed
Want, to dream or believe we
can do, open minds and seek
our goal is to surely run along the path
not walk, encourage our dreams
Want, family, friendships, happiness
to carry love in our hearts
health in our bodies
and peace in our mind
Want, like smouldering embers
in the fire needs to be
sustained for if we relinquish it
like the flame it will slowly die
Want, like flowers have thirst
like fires need flame
or food for our hunger
needs to be quenched
Want, if we let it die, what do we have left
no eagerness to branch out with minds
slowly, like the flower, parts of us
like petals would fall away
float to the ground unnoticed
I have said that when you stop reaching for a dream/want you cease to live……
and may you always keep saying it too xx
I like the idea of falling to the ground,unnoticed!! Night xxxx
Especially after a drink or two 😉 xxx
Oh …see’s my name! lol. I think though you were asking Chey to use it? I am sure she would not mind *smiles*.
She would ‘want’ you to use it for the lovely poem here. I think she’d like every stanza….nods nods.
Thanks honey – yes her reply to one of your posts – prompted me to write, but I was naughty and wrote before she could answer 😦
LOL…shhhh…I will not tell if you won’t!
Our wants and desires are so difficult to narrow down or define. You nailed it.
You are just gorgeous! Thanks Beck xxx
