If Only…I Would


If only I could reach through the clouds and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that your heart will heal and that you will learn so much more about yourself.  I would tell you that you stretched your heart and that has given it the capacity to grow.  I know it hurts but it will enable you to go just as far in the other direction.  I would tell you that your little reindeer nose is cute, but that it doesn’t suit you. πŸ™‚

If only I could reach across the miles and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that God has chosen you – you worker of light – you wonder of love.  And through your struggles you will become stronger.  You will reach new heights and fly through the galaxies of newborn truth and understanding.  I know you are hurting now but you are so strong.

If only I could reach across your mind and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would tell you that your need to be loved and noticed is already fulfilled from those on the outside and from our heavenly Father.  The only person missing from this list is the one who peers out from behind your eyes.   When that heart softens it’s judgment, the truth will be seen and you can relax and get back to doing good deeds.

If only I could drive 50 miles and touch you

I would wrap my arms around you

And tell you I love you

I would tell you that you are going to be okay

I would offer the meaning of a life that was wracked with struggle and I would soften the heart that feels persecuted.  I would hold your hand and gently walk into the truth…walk towards the light…and watch as your soul reached full understanding and accepted the love it was missing for eons.

Yes, if only I could reach you all

If only I could take away all the pain and put a smile on your faces

If only…

I would

      1. Thank you…yes my world is full of love…from Jesus, the never ending source:-) Like you, there are many loved ones in my life that are in despair and lacking in faith and hope. My prayer is that their hearts, eyes and ears be opened to the mercy and love of God:-)

        Thanks for sharing such beautiful, comforting words.

        1. The pleasure truly is mine….and thank you for stopping by and adding your heartfelt words!! When we gather together our energy is stronger….and I wish with all my heart they hear our prayers!! <3

  1. Tears streaming down my face. I just posted that I needed a loving embrace and poof, your post appeared. My heartfelt gratitude as always ~ how coincidental, serendipitous and what proof that we are all connected by invisible heartstrings. I don’t know for whom your post was intended, but I gratefully hold it precious in my heart today. β™₯ Thanks for being you Lorrie. xo

    1. My dear dear friend. You have been on my mind so much lately. I don’t want to add any stress…so I send you silent prayers and I hope you can feel my love! I know you are struggling…I can feel it. But I also know that you are an amazing soul…and you are so strong. And I know that when you are ready you will make a move. I keep praying that you get your stress out and that you don’t allow it to be in your body…in your beautiful temple…take care of yourself. You are one of the bravest women I know…you will be okay …I promise!! Much love to you…and thank you for linking my post to yours….one more way we are connected!!! <3 <3

    1. Oh, Anjali…thank you for your so very kind words. You are so welcome…it is my pleasure πŸ™‚ I wish I could take all the pain away. So many people are hurting…it can be so overwhelming at times. I hope my words reach anyone who needs to feel better! Thank you and have a beautiful week <3

  2. So beautiful — I just finished reading Yvonne’s post on her blog — the one she mentions — and as I read your words I thought, Oh wow. You must be writing this with Yvonne in mind — and there she is, here. How lovely! Hugs

    Thank you for this warm embrace this morning Lorrie. Your heart is a beautiful place.

  3. Beautiful Lorrie! This is perfect for me today. Your words offer so much love and care, a soothing balm to those in pain. Your compassion shines brightly. Thank you my dear friend. πŸ™‚

    1. You are so welcome dear Brad. I hope my words will always offer you comfort! I love that you said it is perfect for you today….that strengthens the bond we all have! Walk in truth and love…<3

  4. What a wonderful letter! Yes, your poem makes me think of a letter you would write to friend in pain!
    It touches me a lot. I can feel your warm and generous soul through your words… as you know, I consider you are so brave and generous, because you have your own pains and you’re able to share pain that is not yours… you are like a spiritual Nurse πŸ™‚ and Brad has found once more the right words: your compassion shines brightly. You’re blessed πŸ™‚ thank you & take care my dear friend! β™₯β™₯β™₯

    1. Much love to you my dear friend! Thank you so much for your beautiful words of praise…I am humbled…and I am Blessitude!! My heart is connected to you…and I send you every good thing I can think of! Much love…<3 <3 <3

    1. Thank you for YOUR encouraging words. I am so grateful for the kindness you show me. I hope you have a super week…and thanks for your letter…I will write soon πŸ˜‰

  5. That’s so sweet Lorrie. You have a soft and sensitive heart, my friend. You have tasted pain and learned compassion from it I sense.
    Hope you’re having a lovely start to your week.

    1. I am having a beautiful start to this week, Staci…Thank you!! I wish the same for you πŸ˜‰ I appreciate your comment…and I really do feel other’s pain…sometimes too much so! But it makes me…me and I wouldn’t change it πŸ™‚ <3

  6. This is a wonderful, heartfelt offering of love, concern, and compassion. And I’m sure the one for whom it was intended greatly appreciates it. I know he’s hurting right now, and although I don’t know the reason for the pain, torment and sorrow are very recognizable qualities. So we shall lift him up in prayer and lay him at the feet of Jesus. May the pain and brokenness in your spirit and his be assauged. May any darkness in either your reality or his be overcome by the Light of the world. And may you both feel the Lord using that which has hurt and broken you to bring some level of goodness from all that you both have suffered. Love and hugs, Natalie πŸ™‚ <3

    1. Natalie. ..This is simply beautiful. I have tears in my eyes because your words went directly to my heart. The emotions you are able to bring forth with your words is amazing! Yes…my dear friend is partial inspiration for this poem…There a quite a few people I am very worried about right now…Each verse was for a different person but I realize when taken together…they can be not only for the people I had in mind but for the many…many people suffering right now!
      Thank you for your very beautiful prayer that you spoke over us. I am grateful and I know he is too! I am doing much much better and I feel string enough to turn my attention to those who are suffering. Thank you…your beautiful, kind, loving spirit is so appreciated!!! <3 <3 <3

  7. Oh, how lovely!!! πŸ™‚ <3 See you are an Angel on Earth!! <3 We all have an angel self and yours is really shining brightly nowadays! it is like she is fully grown and in full bloom now, shining her light on the world!! <3 I think with this post, you are an Earth Angel to many. I believe so many people will read this post perhaps by coincidence (how in the world to you spell that!!) and think: oh, it must be from the angels.! <3 I love that Lorrie!! <3 I think the angels are using you angel self to heal the world! <3
    <3 <3 <3

    1. Thank you dear sweet Trini! I would so love to do Angel work…and I feel so happy that you think this is!! πŸ™‚ Thank you! It seems that I become more and more sensitive to other people’s energies. I am okay with that…I just have to make sure I understand the difference between their energy and mine. It is so strange…but lately…even more so than usual…people confide in me. Many times it is people that I don’t even know very well. I am thankful for that because it tells me that my energy allows them to feel comfortable and safe with me…and that maybe people can feel that I want to help them!
      Thank you so much for all of your help and beautiful blessings. You are a beautiful Angel and I appreciate you so!!! <3 <3 <3

      1. I know that feeling of people coming to you, that is how it has been with me my whole life πŸ™‚ It is certainly challenging, but very rewarding. I remember the first time a girl came to me and said she wanted to commit suicide, I was only 14! Actually I have had so many people who have come to me wanting to commit suicide, I am not going to say that I talked any of them out of it, cause I dont know if anyone can do that, but Thank God they are all alive today. I think the key is, at least that is what it has been for me is to be very open and just listen to people, try to relate to their troubles, and perhaps tell them something from your own life that has been difficult so that they dont feel so alone. I remember when I was 16 a woman in her 40s came and told me about her depression, and I listened and tried to relate, and we had such a good talk, afterwards she told me she had forgotten I was only 16. I have loved all these conversations, but you are right about seperating our own energy from other’s energy, that is a challenge, cause you dont want to seperate yourself so much that you “switch off” your empathy either. The best thing I find is to draw strenght from my angel self’s connection to the great divine, and ask heaven for guidance if I feel lost πŸ™‚ <3 <3 <3

  8. Yes Lorrie when we truly step into the divine, we KNOW that we came to assist “OURSELVES” into “The Truth” that all our reflections from others are divine, and it is our “JOB” to embrace and fully love all of “US” to our inner core, therefore embracing oneself as the teacher and student by being with all of the pain yet also “KNOWING” each has their journey to follow. When I read this I thought of my daughter who has been the biggest teacher for me in letting go, embracing all of me and reflecting back our common divine truth. As we go deeper and deeper seeing empathy being replaced with Divinity. Thank you for having my depth go deeper
    I also relate to Trinis comment as many come to us when we hang out in love, being the ear for an opening of love if they can receive. I was told once by a soul sister to no longer act as if what is happening is “wrong” to embracing their divinity.

    1. “As we go deeper and deeper seeing empathy being replaced with Divinity!!!” Wow! Heart to Heart Robyn….those are lovely words!! Thank you for sharing your heart here…I love “assist OURSELVES into ‘The Truth’ Just beautiful words…and that it is our “JOB” to embrace and fully love all of “US”….and we are teacher and student!!! Yes Yes Yes to all of it! This is a powerhouse of a reply…one I hope people take the time to read because it is so full of incredible wisdom.

      And yes, Trini’s comment….it so totally makes sense. It is the energy we are living in…vibrating at….that attracts people who are looking for an “ear for an opening of love!!!” Just stunning!!! Much love to you…thank you for making my afternoon here. You have given me much to ponder! <3 <3

    1. Hi Theresa….Thank you so much for your beautiful response. I am so grateful to hear it and to know that it touched you. I have so many souls in my life right now who are hurting…it was written for them…and for every traveler…because we could all use a little encouragement now and then. Thank you so much for commenting…I hope your world is super! πŸ™‚

  9. That was a beautiful and heartwarming posting, and it is truly appreciated. Thank-you, very much. God bless, and I’ll read you some more later.
