To Inspire One ~ Poem by Lynda L Burke

Lynda Louise Intuition, Relationships

How did I Inspire One?

Here is a poem I wrote after sharing just part of my life experiences during my counselling training at University.

As students, we had to sit in groups and one person role played the therapist and the other the client.

My fellow student who I was doing the role-play with was so moved by my story that she broke down in tears and hugged me.


I was not expecting that reaction from her and it inspired me and moved me so much, that I wrote this poem.



To Inspire One

by Lynda L Burke

Yesterday I inspired one

Today I may inspire none

To inspire one came as a complete surprise

For to inspire one happened right before my eyes

The journey for me has now begun

Out of my hands and on the run

As if it now has a life of its own

Like a dormant seed when watered has gown

My stomach is filled with butterflies

And my head tells me a million lies

My heart beats fast like I am in a race

Yet strangely a smile appears on my face

My guides and God in you I trust

And trust in myself is now a must

For my soul can now see the sun

All because yesterday I inspired one!

Lynda L Burke



We all go through tough times and it’s during those times that we need the most help and support.

I hope this inspired you on your journey.

About Lynda Louise

All my life, I have experienced wonderful interactions with spirit. I have always had an interest in the unseen. And, through my own direct experiences of knowing, seeing and hearing spirit communication, my fascination with this world has grown. I feel, after looking back over my life, I had other life and soul lessons to learn before I was at the stage in my life, ready and, even mature enough, to develop and explore my spiritual self.
