About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #115 - For a Friend

A dear friend is going through chemotherapy now. She has a wonderful positive attitude toward it. I asked the spirit world if they had a poem for her ...

Troubles come in many forms
Such challenges they bring.
And how you handle every test
Is quite a tricky thing.

Do you sit alone and weep?
Or do you cast a smile?
It all depends on attitude
T’ward every little trial.

A sickness is a mighty test,
Especially one so grave.
When cancer courses through the blood
Your life you fight to save.

We notice how you greet the world
With such a cheerful face.
This way of coping is no act;
It’s a special kind of grace.

In your heart we feel your pain
And just a touch of fear.
But know that we watch over you
And that your God is near.

The courage that you show to all
To others it gives strength.
We know that to soothe others
You would go to any length.

But do not fail to give yourself
The same type of special care.
For now you need to rest and know
That love and grace are there.

Rest peacefully when you feel weak.
Don’t try to do it all.
No need to always be so brave.
We will not let you fall.

And in those times when you’re afraid
And know not how to go,
Just call on us and we will send
A soothing inner glow.

This warmth you’ll feel within your chest
Will be a gift from God—
A touch of love to help you through
A gentle, loving prod.

So know that you don’t walk alone.
We’re with you all the way.
May knowing this add to your strength
As you pass through each day.


  1. What a lovely poem from the world of spirit...a tribute to your friend's strength, courage, and love for others...plus reassuring words to bring her even greater strength and comfort.

    "So know that you don't walk alone." May we all feel the presence of the spirit world today...

  2. What a beautiful poem. To know that we never walk alone and that love surrounds us in each passing day. We can build our strength by reaching for the light of God and greeting every morning as a new beginning...

    My thoughts go out to your friend and I'm glad Bill clarified the "Council of Poets."
