At times it would be nice
to have a pair of magic red shoes.
Just clicking them together three times
would do the trick.
 
Suddenly I would be transported
to wherever my mind of memory
would wish to go.
 
At this very moment
I could easily think of a dozen places
I would love to be at this moment.
 
Each time frame
would place me at a time and place
where I felt greatly loved.
 
Where there was a skip in my step
and a constant grin on my face.
I can easily bring to mind
scenes of such places in my past.
 
Skipping through a mall with her
like a school child.
Dancing with her
for the first time
with my arm around her waist. 
 
Ah yes then their were those
first kisses
always soft
always remembered
always joyful
in the way those kisses went to my toes.
 
Truthly knowing what I know now
would I have taken more time
to savor every moment.
 
Time in remembering every detail
of the places of my youth
where my magic red shoes
would have taken my heart.

The Dark Angel will be overcomed.

Amidst us stands the Dark Angel
joyful at each victory gained against us.
 
A free will to choose Good or Evil
a gift from our Loving God
is a part of our daily struggles.
 
The weapons of the Dark One are many.
Darkness that covers our mind with sorrow
in our latter years
to place us in a void of hopelessness
and fear.
 
Lost of health
lost of loved ones
bringing doubt to our aging minds.
 
Are we to be snatched from His Love
at our Eleventh hour before death?
 
Render your darkness to God’s Love and Power.
The Lord will lift you above this Evil.
 
Never fear
never give in to distrust nor hate
in the darkness that attacks you.
 
The Dark One’s only reward in eternity is suffering
while yours will be in the Light of God’s Love forever.
