To Keep the Sacred Near

A look at life’s lessons.

To Keep the Sacred Near
by Michael Doyle

Life thrusts us into situations
Thigh deep in aggravations
But then there's a lesson even in that
One felt deep even if you're not an empath

Another day in endless days slipped by
Time is soon gone yet we wonder why
Last night in Bambi country I got to see
What it looks like to eyeball my mortality

There in the yearling's beautiful eyes
Was the doe's realization I had caught her by surprise
Instincts took over and thankfully she was spared
That was good enough for me and all that I cared

It doesn't really matter where you are
If your home is your heart you can go far
While still holding on to all that is truly dear
This is how we learn to keep the sacred near
