My Journey of Love

My journey of love is far from the end

I have places to go and fences to mend.

People to love and knowledge to give

To share the laughter and show how to live

Love-mountains to build;  Mole hills to smash

Build the children up before all hopes are dashed

Leave a better world before I leave this vast land

When God becons me and angels take my hand

Til that glorious day I’ll revel in love

Of friends and family and God up above

I am the divine, embodied in light

My heart’s sprouted wings, my soul’s taken flight

With this step, this breath, this moment in time

I’ll dance the fantastic, drink in the sublime

Waste not one more moment on rights being wronged

Allowing only ineffable sights, mellifluous song

Obliterating solitude in every man’s heart

My love will envelop your soul before I depart

I’ll bid you adieu, wishing no sorrow or pain

And leave this world for the Ethereal Plane

He gallops through the meadow on his steed of cool mint green
and he stops to taste the waters of the cool milk chocolate stream

Page 1.

{Black haired boy sleeping in bed dreaming of candy
landscape with trees of tootsie rolls and gummi bear
Leaves with marshmallow clouds and candy throughout scene}

[Tousled hair frames the smiling face of a sleeping six year old.
Wild dreams of childhood heaven dwindle as we grow old.
Tree trunks made of tootsie rolls;  leaves of gummi bears
and marshmallow clouds fill the sky to wash away his cares]

Page 2

{Riding mint green horse through meadow of grass .
Chocolate stream  running in background with
clouds}

[He gallops through the meadow on his steed of cool mint green
and he stops to taste the waters of the cool milk chocolate stream]

Page 3

{Standing next to stream  bouncing stones across the top of the chocolate as it splashes.}

[Then skips stones of peanut butter across the tops of melted waves
and splashes chocolate kisses from the waters as he plays]

Page 4

{Boy sits on top of strawberry shortcake  rocks  eating chocolate as its
melting in his  hand while admiring the  cotton candy and gumdrop landscape}

[Surveying his surroundings  of a chocolate lovers dream
from rocks of strawberry shortcake dripping with sweet cream.
Rainbow waves of cotton candy and gumdrops dot the land;
darkened streams of melted chocolate dripping from his  hand]

Page 5

{Hopefully pages  5 and 6  are one big picture.}

[All the wonderous,  sweet confections calling out his name.
He can’t wait to taste them, although he loves them all the same.]
