Come To Open Closed Windows


On a path one has chosen,
No one else knows...
A giving of advice to offer or heard expressed.
As to which way another should take to go...
With less obstacles to face that appear,
To eliminate and clear it of fears...
Is a position one with focus shows,
To be a rarity when one begins on a path to stroll.
Especially on a path one has chosen...
No one knows what the future holds.

And returning to retrace those steps taken to regret,
When a loneliness felt deeper gets...
Yet,
To move on until doubts and fears are gone...
One chooses to cement the experience of it,
To be remembered and never to forget.
With kept faith to face and not escape from consequences.
Many who are adventurous know one day they will reminisce.
With a doing of each step,
To open a closed window.

And whispered in their ears with faith kept to endear...
A voice so clear,
'Come to open to open closed windows.
And do it to dismiss your fears.
Come to open those closed windows.
And do it with your faith kept held and near.'

On a path one has chosen,
No one else knows...
A giving of advice to offer or heard expressed.
As to which way another should take to go...
With less obstacles to face that appear,
To eliminate and clear it of fears...
Is a position one with focus shows,
To be a rarity when one begins on a path to stroll.

'Come to open to open closed windows.
And do it to dismiss your fears.
Come to open those closed windows.
And do it with your faith kept held and near.'

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
