Is It Just for the Moment We Live? / Fighting Diabetes

Let your Heart lead the way and you’ll find Love, any day.

While attending Hardin-Simmons University,
A beautiful place of Hope, of Love, of Salvation,
I met a young lady.
She was deeply contemplative,
Very philosophical about Life,
And at such a tender age.
She gave a brief presentation,
In a public address class,
About all encompassing
Questions of Life.

The questions evolved into
A beautiful song,
Which she sang:
What’s It All About, Alfie?”

Here we find a rare display of color.

“In such times, the only true protest is beauty.” – Lucia Perry

 I felt deep inside myself
That she would find answers,
Looking with such longing
Into the eyes of her audience,
Searching the hearts of everyone Listening.

At the end
She was in tears,
And so were we.

I could see that she was
Serious,
Pleading for help,
As do we all,
For a reason for this Life,
A reason to go on.

As the lilting, beautiful song (edited) goes:

I know there’s something much more.

“Is it just for the moment we live?
What’s it all about
When you sort it out,
Alfie?
Are we meant to take
More than we give?

Or are we meant to be kind?
And if only fools are kind,
Then I guess it’s wise to be cruel.

And if life belongs only to the strong,
What will you lend on an old Golden Rule?
As sure as I believe there’s a Heaven above,
I know there’s something much more,
Something even non-believers can believe in.

I believe in love,
Alfie,
Without true love
We just exist.

Until you find the love you’ve missed,
You’re nothing,
Alfie.

When you walk
Let your Heart lead the way,
And you’ll find Love
Any day,
Alfie.”
(by Burt Bacharach & Hal David)

     What’s It All About?

The prison doors of our reluctance,
Our hesitation
To ask someone,
Anyone,
For help, for guidance,
For Love,
Can become locked.

Is it just for the moment we live?

I often wondered,
But now have no doubt,
That the young Lady,
Whose life became
Such a beautiful song,
Found an answer.
For she found her voice.

Her precious Life
For a few moments,
Perhaps a lifetime,
Became a beautiful song.
She let her Heart
Lead the way,
And so can you
Find Love
Any day.

And so can you find Love.

I wish I could show you,
when you are lonely,
when you are in darkness,
the astonishing light of your own being.
– Hafiz

You will never regret the compassion shown to God's other creations.

You will never regret the compassion you give to God’s other creations and to each other.
