By Seth Nation

(Temporarily out of print.)

In The Road We’ve Traveled, writer Seth Nation will take you on a personal journey of the human condition, twenty-six individual pieces, evoking the passion of love, the grief of death, and the sweet beauty that resides with remembrance in our dreams. The Road We’ve Traveled sweeps through the uncharted territory of the human soul with works of poetry filled with hope and inspiration. The road begins with the feelings one feels when falling in love, the depths at which one’s soul aches for another, of a love known pure and ever strong with boundaries that know no end, ultimately traveling to the time when one must say that final goodbye and relief can only come in dreams. It is a collection that as a whole makes us realize how truly special life can be and collectively what makes us who we are.

“The Song of My Spirit”

The song of my spirit
Charges on, despite death
Whispered upon your breath.
Listen softly, I beg, can you hear it?
Please, my dear love, please, by no means should you fear it.
It plays deep in your mind.
I’m eternally at your side,
Strong as the tide,
Hoping you to find.
Always to be,
Even though I have died
Playing my song, timeless, for you and me.

When all alone, in need,
Never forget I’m here,
Holding you oh so dear.
Praying that your heart be forever freed
From the endless pain and anguish I see you bleed.
I endure the cries, screams
That dutifully you can hide,
Buried inside.
We visit in dreams,
Always to be,
Even though I have died
Playing my song, timeless, for you and me.

“Reincarnation”

I said goodbye to you my love,
Silently,
Unheard
Amidst prayers and the songs of angels
As they carried me aloft upon their gilded wings.

Fear not though, my love, for I will return,
Silently,
Unheard,
In your dreams, and fond remembrance,
Reincarnated to help you through the years.

Let me be, my love, that calming peace
Silently,
Unheard,
That gives you strength, gives you love,
To walk life’s path alone.

Let me be, my love, that gentle wind
Silently,
Unheard,
That brushes away the tears you shed
When you remember the love we shared.

Let me be, my love, that voice
Silently,
Unheard,
That answers the prayer you quietly speak,
Giving you faith in times of need.

Let me be my love, the guidance you long for
Silently,
Unheard.
My spirit stands beside you, holding your hand,
Guiding you, when life’s compass leaves you stranded.

Let me be my love, just let me be
Silently,
Unheard .
Always in your heart, always
Reincarnated to what you ever need.

I will always love you, my love.
Silently,
Unheard.
