Looking For Old Souls

People watching today at the optometrist                                                                                         I was looking for old souls                                                                                                                Sometimes impatient  they appear as if everyone should know whats going on by now         Their in a hurry and always act like you are wasting their time                                                        Then you spot a few souls with all the time in the world with loving and kind gestures                               Souls  on a mission that look as comfortable as the day is long                                                   Glad to be here                                                                                                                                 And smiling because they know everyone makes it home in th end                                            Smiling becouse they know everyone finds their own perfection                                                    In the clear and unending preasents of God                                                                                 Think about it God dosen't make nock offs                                                                                     And God made you with the same love and care that God puts into everything else                    This world is an illusion                                                                                                                             Tailor made with the  expeariance that you need to lift the vale from your eyes                             So that you may one day see wonders that you have only dared to dream of

    I love this. This world is an illusion - I too believe that. I have seen wonders in my dreams and when I wake up - they are gone. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla
