When time comes for saying good-bye
Yesterday’s joy makes you want to cry
Tears laughter you leave behind
Remind how we are yesterday’s child
Goodbye not easy sometimes rough
Looking deeply never enough
Presence of another warmth they bring
Memories unrelenting your heart did sing
When time to tie loose ends
Important completion before new friends
May not be pretty may not be nice
Adults make choices sometimes sacrifice
Thing to remember as you toss and turn
No matter this that always much to learn
No despairing of forks in the road
Whatever direction carry the load
Choose wisely understand consequences
Whatever you do has significance
Allow your process to show the way
Always completion perhaps not today
How do you say good-bye to people, places and projects?
Are there things in your life that need to be completed?
How do you take care of yourself during transitions?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.
My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.
My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
