Dedicated to my very dear friend,
Dr. Nelson F. Eichman.
How do you put into words how you feel
for the man you most admire in this world.
A Man for All Seasons,
An Inspiration and a wonderful, trusted Friend.
On his Sacred Mission
To Help Us, One and All,
He truly Succeeded.
Your Life Is such a Beautiful Blessing
We Love you
We are not
Who we seem to be,
Loved into being,
God whispered your name.
Breath of Life
Were you created,
The creation of man.
From the dust of the ground
A living, breathing being,
Loving and Loved,
A Child of God,
God Blesses each of us,
As He Dreams away our lives.
And Forever is a day,
As it is Given,
We are born again,
Me and you,
Into the next life,
Such that we cannot imagine
As dreams come true.
While you dream,
You know not
That you are dreaming.
May be living a dream.
We sculpt the future
With our imagination,
What we perceive to be.
And by our transgressions,
Forget that I am me.
In the act of forgiving
The mind is Blessed,
As it forgets.
The Heart Divine
No longer remembers,
Set free from deep regrets.
The Love of God
Is like a raging
River of Light,
Into the dark
Pit of Night.
So this life, this dream,
From which we awake one day,
Will find us forgiven,
Should we ask to be,
In the Bright Morning Light
Of God’s Eternal Love.
And breathless will we be,
