Why Did You Come Here?

“Why did you come here?” I asked the daisy
As I lay on the grass feeling dreamy and lazy
The answer just appeared in my mind
“I came to add to the beauty you’d find.”

“Why did you come here?” I asked the bee
Flying so fast I could hardly see
The bee turned and started to fly more slow
“I came to help the flowers grow.”

“Why did you come here?” I asked the ant
As it ran across the beautiful plant
“I was alone, but now life’s a dream,
I came to work as part of a team.”

“Why did you come here?” I asked the cat
As she clawed away on the fireside mat
She looked right into my eyes with a stare
“I came to help you become Aware.”

“Why did you come here?” I asked little Lucky
Our precious, playful Labrador puppy
“I told you before, when we were in heaven above,
I came to give you unconditional love.”

“Why did you come here?” I asked my teacher
When showing my carefully painted picture
She thought for a moment and began to say
“I came to guide you along the way.”

Why did you come here?” I asked the old man
Who was sat in the park and getting a tan.
The man smiled at me and said, “Ever since my birth
I came to enjoy my life here on this Earth.”

Why did I come here? I wanted to know
Then all these things I attracted to show
I came to…
Find beauty, enjoy life, help, guide and share
Unconditional Love and become Aware.

      Wow, Linda! Your words are very expressive! I have just added a comment to you on another post and couldn’t think of the right words to express how heartfelt your words were! All this synchronicity going on is such confirmation to us all, but it is especially happening with us three. I too, thank God for the poems that come to me and since Amira came into my life they are spreading out and uplifting others more and more, which is all I ever wanted from them.
      I give thanks to you and Amira and send you both my Love, Light, Blessings & Prayers. ❤
