Warmth of the Fire

Saturday evening 6:37 p.m. October 22, 2016 Kansas City, Mo Stephen Becker pen name Brian Stoaks “Warmth of the Fire” The wonder of happiness is thought provoking to say the least To be happy with myself is harder than some can really imagine As life moves forward and the simple things in life seem to change daily I smile knowing tomorrow is a new day with brighter smiles and softer hearts Building a future of stone, sticks, soil, and fire to keep my thoughts warm So many nights in the Fall can bring coldness and the feeling of being alone Thoughts escaping into words to be heard out loud meant to stay silent What is making sense is only the night when all words stop and the mind rests Silently I try to form words into sentences that allow myself to understand So confused with the fact that my hands built the pit to be enjoyed with another Frustrated by the emptiness beside me where many have been invited Consoled by my own thoughts as I comfort my empty heart with warm flames Distraction of a great week with so many wonderful things become reality Knowing one day I will no longer be alone wishing to be held by someone who loves me For as the days pass and my life moves forward I will sit here wrapped in the arms of God With the warmth of the fire I no longer need you to make me whole for I am already whole without you
