If I Were by Maria Teresa Practico-Swanson
If I were the wind I would carry your imagination to a faraway place, like whispers so often do upon the breeze through the trees.
If I were the rain I would wash away all your worries and fears so you could only see the beauty that this world has to offer.
If I were the sky I would open myself up wide and invite you to fly wherever your heart desires.
If I were the Earth I would plant you firmly into roots grounded in love and compassion.
If I were fire I would crackle and burn passionately inside of a pit, smoldering like in the core of your being that’s yearning to express every color you can dream.
If I were the Sun I would shine brightly through darkness reminding you to never give up or let go of hope.
If I were the Moon I would glow like a candle guiding your way back home to my arms.
If I were a rainbow I would always appear when you need to be uplifted and be reminded how precious, cherished, adored, and loved you truly are.
If only I could be all of these and everything…..would you believe in yourself like I always have, giving you nothing but love. Always and Forever❤
Looking Up by Maria Teresa Practico-Swanson
The Light of love shines like a beacon in the night sky
Directing my heart to open wider than my mind’s eye
Ever cared to dream of life with fearlessness and fire
Burning brilliance of desire sets my soul’s flight higher
Reaching for the stars that echo images so clear
Strength within grows while shared wisdom does sear
Soul imprints of ancient times, purpose unwraps the gift
Life forever is
Divine love blessed beyond imagination grants the wish
Seeing the infinite essence, true magic sending shivers
Oh how your love for me, God is timeless as it delivers
Wrap me in its entirety and promises of what will be
Bowing my head, I carry on open to whatever will dawn
Pain of Letting You Go by Maria Teresa Practico-Swanson
Loving you has haunted me like an offbeat rhythm
Giving my heart by forgetting goodbye
You are standing still as I wave to your memory
Stuck in past hurts, your warmth so sensory
Heartaches beyond what can be endured
Letting you go scares me, feelings turn to insecure
Keeping me bound tightly in dreams
Releasing the hold of our connection so bold
Colors fade to gray, the end is near
How will I go on to face this fear?
Shockwaves vibrate throughout my system
Nothing is right as pain drowns every sensation
Head underwater as darkness turns to static on every station
Believing the thoughts that invade my mind
Cursing myself for succumbing to their insidious rhyme
Nothingness overflowing and consumes every crevice
Monitoring alertness, awareness is my nemesis
Turn the dial or flip the switch to the OFF position
Anything to guide me out of this difficult transition
Words fly and swirl around, none feel profound
At times like this, I don’t want to hear their sound
Take me down, but don’t let me fall
The pain of letting you go makes me feel so small
