Poem by Sharon Baggs

The Tunnel of Eternity. Apr. 12th This tunnel goes On and on For Eternity It goes as far as the eye Can see Mostly straight Alongside the old trees All is silent So serene Not a word And lacking green One day we'll explore This tunnel A bit more Maybe find the beginning Because there is no end .

Tunnel of Eternity

At the mouth of the tunnel

You walk towards me

There is no hustle

The prettiest woman I would ever see

We stand before family and friends

To enter a love

That will never end

On the wings of a dove

We take our vows

And exchange our rings

Feel as much love as my heart will allow

My whole body sings

Our lips meet in a kiss

Two hearts become one

I could stay forever like this

With my wife under the warm summer sun

Now we enter the tunnel of eternity

Tunnel of Eternity

-

Take a breath, hold it deep, let it out

And take a step; long or short be no matter;

Take a step with me, take my hand, without doubt,

Don’t worry, I will hold you together so you won’t shatter.

Set your foot here, leave a print there,

Look around you, and you’ll see in these sands of time

The stories of footprint by footprint everywhere;

Why, look there, a baby foot bare.

And here, it must be the impression of a wizened fair lady

Who had so little time left,

Before the hand of Death swept her from this plane;

But worry not, you are still young, time is aplenty.

Take my hand, step here…

12. Tunnel of Eternity


A narrow focus consumes us

It’s a long and winding road

Dragging a past behind us

The burden is a heavy load.

Too worried about the future

Sadness over what is to be

The unknown is hard to nurture

A dark tunnel of eternity

Break those solid chains that bind

Practice forgiving – do not resent

Live life fully with open mind

Keep your being in the present.
