✧MOMENTS✧  All those sweet moments When you were a child  All those sweet moments When I was saying goodbye  At 6am  And you were still just a babe  in arms  All those sweet moments  When the breeze was mild  And the sun was warm  And the little carousel  Turned  All those sweet moments Churned the star milk  For others to learn  How to rock with the stars  All those sweet moments of ours  Are still in that special place  All those sweet moments  Are safe.  #elisadawn ©️2016
✧FAITH✧  When you are gone For a very long time  Or quiet for a while  I know that's just your style  Your way  To give to me space  So I can grow my Faith  The first time I was blind to your song & deaf to your Eyes For a very long thyme  I started to realize the Music of the Spheres  I started to hear your voice  More clearly than ever before  Dear One.  Please don't go so far away  Anymore  I know it makes our spirit Great But Stay a while  Rest in profound Love  bathe in the sound  Of our heart strings  Fitting like a glove  How can I do my part? Beloved  This little toy harmonica & these bubbles  Are getting so cliché  Whatever Grows Your Faith My Dear & I will wait  Thousands of years  Eons  if that’s what it takes  To stay in these Musical Spheres.  #elisadawn ©️2016
✧AWAKENING✧ In the early dawn of happiness  you gave me three kisses  so that I would wake up  to this moment of love  I tried to remember in my heart  What I’d dreamt about  during the night  before I became aware of this morning of life  I found my dreams but the moon took me away. It lifted me up to the firmament  and suspended me there.  I saw how my heart had fallen on your path  singing a song  #rumi
✧PROSPERO✧ Now my charms are all o'erthrown, And what strength I have’s mine own, Which is most faint. Now, ’tis true, I must be here confined by you, Or sent to Naples. Let me not, Since I have my dukedom got And pardoned the deceiver, dwell In this bare island by your spell, But release me from my bands With the help of your good hands. Gentle breath of yours my sails Must fill, or else my project fails, Which was to please. Now I want Spirits to enforce, art to enchant, And my ending is despair, Unless I be relieved by prayer, Which pierces so that it assaults Mercy itself and frees all faults. As you from crimes would pardoned be, Let your indulgence set me free. #thetempest #prospero #williamshakespeare
✧DESIRE✧ Who never wanted, — maddest joy Remains to him unknown;	 The banquet of abstemiousness Surpasses that of wine.  Within its hope, though yet ungrasped Desire’s perfect goal No nearer, lest reality Should disenthrall thy soul. #emilydickinson
✧CHARMS✧ Believe me, if all those endearing young charms  Which I gaze on so fondly to-day, Were to change by tomorrow, & fleet in my arms, Like fairy-gifts fading away  Thou woulds’t still be ador’d, as this moment thou art  Let thy loveliness fade as it will, And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart  Would entwine itself verdantly still.  It is not while beauty and youth are thine own, And thy cheeks unprofan’d by a tear, That the fervor and faith of a soul can be known,  To which time will but make thee more dear;  No, the heart that has truly lov’d never forgets, But as truly loves on to the close, As the sun-flower turns on her god, when he sets,  The same look which she turn’d when he rose.  #thomasmoore
✧PHYSICIAN✧ I had to seek the physician  Because of the pain this world caused me. I could not believe what happened when I got there I found my Teacher  Before I left, he said  Up for a little homework yet? Okay. I replied  Try thanking all the people who have caused you pain. They helped you come to me. #kabir
✧DEVOTION✧ Oh my Gurudev (precious teacher of Love + Light) I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet  Whatever I have you have given to me  And I dedicate it all to you I have no love, nor do I know you  I don’t even have the strength to worship you  But this mind of mine, this body of mine  My every atom is dedicated to you  You are the only one in my heart and thoughts  You are the only one I call out to  Now make me your instrument . .  All I am I offer to you. #meregurudev #devapremal #rabindranathtagore
✧SONNET 116✧ Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle’s compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved. #williamshakespeare
✧GUARDIAN✧ Thank you for watching over me  So closely I know it is you looking Because I am always seeking Searching in every being  For evidence  That you are there. ©️2018 #elisadawn
✧MELT✧ Don’t keep so cold, Beloved Or you will let the little Light The sweet candle  That I keep lit for you Here at your altar Go out.  Stay & melt awhile, Beloved  Lean in & let go  of those old ideas you had About letting love  sit outside your door  singing your song & wanting only  To give. ©️2014 #elisadawn
✧BLOOM✧ You look like something blooming.  #indiaameye @india_ameye
