My greatest love

He’s asleep right now, so perfectly still.  I stare at him in wonder and disbelief.  My path through life, it must have been perfect.  If not, then how would he be here?  How would I be sitting in this room watching him float off into a world of dreams with that beautifully intense look of contentment on his face?

I’m grateful for the journey that brought us to this moment.  How could I not be?  If everything I’ve done has gotten me to where I am today, sitting cross-legged on the floor watching him sleep, then how can any of it be wrong?

He is such a joy to behold, a beautiful soul to help nuture.

I will be here by your side to show you the world, to sing you the songs, to dance with you through life.  To laugh with you, to cry with you and to protect you from harm.  You are the beating heart that mine bleeds forever more for.  I love you son.  Dad.

    That is so poignant Mark. Such deep feelings of love.


  2. It is all perfection, coming together in a way that you will look back on in fifty years…and truly ‘see’ your journey Mark.
    At the time some of it will feel like the hounds of hell chasing you through the black forest of life…but if it didn’t…you would then not appreciate the beauty that you now see within your son…or anything else for that matter.
    Thankfully it all has purpose…a journey that shows you that gift inside.
    If you want to be the best father in the world for your son…then look at how you feel about your dad, or whoever you loved and looked up to, see the hurt within those relationships and understand them…it will change you, and also your son because you will now teach him about the changed you, not the one that held hurt and pain from life, thereby unintentionally teaching him that same fear and pain.
    Be that change, it is the greatest gift of love that you can ever give him.
    Your post is a very beautiful and heartfelt expression of love, it showed me what I had lost in my journey, but what I also now see from the wisdom and love gained from it. Namaste

      Thank you for those thoughtful words Mark. It’s timely that you say all of this. I did some energy healing on Friday with a dear friend and we pinpointed a time in the past relating to my relationship with my Dad.

      Thank you again.

      1. My pleasure Mark, and thank you for sharing your journey.
        It is interesting that you are at this moment in your life, as I am also a healer, and it never ceases to amaze me the way this beautiful world brings together those attractions in our lives to find and understand the beauty that is within us all.
        Love and light on your journey, may it guide you to that love that holds us all together 🙂
