A Great Day for an Epiphany.

 Great Day for an Epiphany
By Giovanna Sclafani (c.) Copyright 2013

Meditating on my life today,
I cried out to the spirits above,
And poured out my heart and soul
To the gods now I start to pray.

A revelation to me has occurred;
It came to me while wide awake,
Everything else was just a blur,
I purged my soul for my own sake.

All of my life flashed before me,
I asked forgiveness for all my mistakes.
And I had quite a few you better believe
But of everything in my life that I’ve seen;
The worst thing was to see, mom in her state,
It was just more than I could take.

I told mom, to just let go….
Let your spirit flow….
She is hanging on to life,
But is at the end of her rope.
I believe that her mere existence,
Is from her own resistance.

I thought I was going mad
I felt so very sad,
Talking to myself out loud,
Crying to the gods,
Then I got mad.
But, I arose from my tear stained shroud.
And walked like a zombie,out of my sadness.

I sorted out all of the rubbish in my life,
And came to this simple conclusion,
That everything that I endured,
And every trial and tribulation,
Now, seems to me,just like an illusion.
which helped me, As I awake,
and walk forward into the light,
that guides me to all things for my sake.

For everything,there was a reason.
I listen now to the spirits when they call.
Don’t be your own worst enemy of treason.
The lesson is to love yourself most of all.
There is a time for our purpose, and then we’ll see
Just look within for the answers of what you can be.

Finally I realize so many truths
I heard the voice telling me so.
I have learned to love myself
And the inner voices that tell me;
That Now I am finally free!

Today was a great day for an Epiphany
And yes, it did occur,
If I were to tell it all; you may not believe,
The Past is over and is like a blur,
I let it go and set it free; it’s like a windswept leaf.
But it’s made me a better person for it all,
And I still listen to the spirits when they call.Image

Woke up today and I was flying
Looking down below,
At my mortal body sleeping
In a moment fleeting
Not knowing where I’d go.

Floating, soaring, boundless in the sky above
While flying in some astral plane
Overwhelmed by an all encompassing feeling of love,
All the while, wondering, how is it that I came.

Trying to find my way by the stars,
Gazing at the beauty of the islands in the sun,
In a moment, somehow I’d traveled so far.
I feel an over powering feeling of love for someone,
It was such a quintessential and pure love I sensed.
A powerful love that sent lightning bolts to my senses,
That flooded my soul with feelings so immense.

As my spirit started to glide into the universe,
I must have seen God’s aura shining bright,
it was like seeing a glimpse of heaven on earth.
Basking in his blinding and intense love light,
My soul now takes flight,
And once again I am soaring in the sky
Guided by this bright love light
That I found in you.

Back to earth
Back to my mortal body
I awake refreshed,
Still high on this agape love,
Our spirits had meshed
While my soul took flight in the night,
I drank from the crystal clear mountain springs,
And ate the ambrosia that was laid before me
I had a glimpse of quintessential love, 
In a land where we lived in before,
So very long ago.

Come with me once again,
To our valley of love,
That belonged to you and me,
And together we shall see,
All its love and beauty.
We’ll drink of the crystal clear waters,
That time has now changed to wine,
Now we can find a love so sublime
That was once yours and mine

il_570xN.340623051SPIRITS OF HOPE
Voices of spirits from another dimension,
Speak softly to me with a message of hope today,
The dark ominous clouds surrounding you for so long,
Now they disperse and fade so far away.
An bright aura of blinding light surrounds you now,
that wards off opaque and dark shadows near,
Showers you now with love and beauty somehow,
This cool sweet rain of love erases all your fears
.Soon a Rainbow of love and hope will abound,
with all it’s splendid colors that dazzle now your eyes,
The treasures that you seek now can be found.
with abundance of joy you’ll find wings to fly
.As you fly above the clouds so high,
then you swerve down below then glide,
A voice tells you to soar back up into to the sky,
where peace and love in abundance abides
.The black clouds have now dispersed from one
No darkness can penetrate the blinding light of love too.
Now you shine like a million diamonds in the sun,
that dance on the sea reflecting the inner light within you.by Giovanna Sclafani (c.)2013

THE ONE (c.) Copyright 2013 Giovanna Sclafani

So you think you have found the one
The one that makes your head spin
To be your beginning and end
Your heart is pounding like drums
Every time you speak
Your body becomes weak
And you tremble when he is near
Panic comes over you
And you get an overwhelming fear
You just can’t let go
Afraid to fall
So afraid that you will fall
So far down
That you’ll never get up again
As you go crashing down
So far down
To the ground

Please tell me that you’ll catch me
Should I fall?
And not break me
Or my heart
And that’s a start
You just don’t know
You have no idea
Of how deep I feel
It’s so unreal
Like deja vu
You get it too

I felt our souls collide
The moment we met
Like some sort of Kismet
Love that lived before
Has returned once more

I am gutted
And can’t think
I can’t sleep
Can’t eat
I fear
When you are near
That you won’t care
My heart sinks
But continue to think
Of how wonderful it could be
For you and me

Oh how wonderful
It would be
To be entwined
Your heart and mind
Just like old times
From long ago
I really think so.

Tell me true
Don’t you long for it too?
It’s like Deja Vu
You know it’s true
You cannot run and hide
Love will capsize and energize
A love that never dies
Has come back to haunt us
Then taunts us
In its revelry
Of what could be

Soul Mates
‘Tis our fate
You cannot fight,
You just cannot fight
It will take you down
And toss you around
Again and again
And torment your mind
Until you finally resign
You have to admit
What you are feeling
And let it in
then it can begin,
Let the light in once more
From the one that you adore.
Lovers forevermore.

Leave it all behind (c.)2013 Giovanna Sclafani

181627_485426341530442_1743186754_nLeave it all behind
Lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in this place
Called the human race.It’s a dog eat dog world
With our ego’s all intact
And our heads in a swirl
And that’s a fact

Good versus Evil
Who will win the race?
And cross the finish line first,
Pushing and shoving money in their face
Greed is the driving thirst.

So you’ve won,
Before they’ve begun.
You’ve won the grand prize,
A stack of money green.
But love you’ve never seen.
So you run and hide.
In your island in the sun,
While the jealous one’s chide,
Your life has just begun.

Can your wealth bring love?
Can you really know this is true?
Leave it all behind when you die,
For the reapers are never shy
To steal it all away
Hurdled in corners dark
Waiting to get their part
While you lay in a cold dark tomb
They will spend your wealth
With sins done in stealth.

And your cold body now shivers,
To the naked bones where you lie,
On the day that you die
You’ll leave it all behind
Never mind to worry
Never you mind
You’ll have to leave it all behind.
