" If.................."


If I could turn back the hands of time
Make today better; make it fine
If I could turn back the pages of life
And rid it of all regrets and strife

If I had just taken that initial step
Maybe more to life were left
If I had just opened that one door
The meaning of life could've been more
If I did my best that trying day
'You came out on top' is what they'd say
But if I didn't conquer my fear
I had outweighed the wrong from right

If only I told you how dear you meant
This earnest message would be sent
If only I said it my dear friend
And not have waited til the end

If the sadness in me subsides
I'd be free from having to hide
If these fears I could conquer
I could've stepped out further yonder

If I could've done all those things
These would not be sad end
If only now I try my best
I wouldn't have to worry about the rest

" You will be Happy........"


~ You Will be Happy ~

Minimise your wants,
You will be happy.

Fulfil your needs,
You will be happy.

Divinise your thoughts,
You will be happy.

Immortalise your faith,
You will be happy.

Rectify your mistakes,
You will be happy.

Intensify your cry,
You will be happy.

" Manifest..............."


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that frightens us.
We ask ourselves
who am I to be ?

talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that
other people
won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God
that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

" A Question of Love..............."

~ A Question of Love ~

We often ask the question of ourselves
"What is this feeling that we call love?"
Is it true that we all have a soul mate
Predestined by God in Heaven above?

Does it show up when least expected
When across the room you see a smile?
Or does it grow at a snails pace,
Between friends, where it takes awhile?

Does it suddenly appear like a raging storm
Where thunder and lightening abound?
A storm over which you have no control.
Where peace and quiet can't be found?

Or is it more the gentle rain of spring,
And your whole world feels fresh and clean?
Can love flourish in those not so young,
Or just felt more strongly only as a teen?

There are times it's a roller coaster ride.
At least that is what I have been told.
With exciting peaks, frightening descents,
An encounter unnerving even to the bold.

Love can become an uncontrolled fire,
Burning deep within our very soul.
With passions wanting to be fulfilled,
Needing each other just to feel whole.

Love can also be gentle and soothing,
Full of kindness and heartfelt caring.
The touch of a hand brings peace with it.
And a life together fed daily by sharing.

Love should not hurt, but, best by far,
You are not only lovers, but, friends
Passion may simmer, romance absent,
The kind of love that lasts, never ends.

No turmoil, none of the ups and downs,
A life of contentment, peace above all.
Then, when something separates you,
Only happy memories will you recall.

" Remember.................."

Remember ...........

Greet this day with love in the heart
no matter how painful is your soul

look on all things with love
love the sun for it warms the bones
love the rain for it cleanses the spirit
love the light for it shows the way
love the darkness for it shows the stars.

welcome happiness as it enlarges the heart

endure sadness for it opens the soul

acknowledge rewards for they are my due;
yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

" I Can Only.................."

I can only................

I can't give solutions to all of life's problems,
doubts, or fears.
But I can listen to you,
and together we can seek answers.

I can't change your past with all it's heartache
and pain,
nor the future with it's untold stories.
But I can be there when you need me to care.

I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand
that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes,
and happinesses are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter and joy.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make,
nor to judge;
I can only support you,
encourage you,
and help you
when you ask.

I can't give you boundaries
which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change,
room to grow,
room to be yourself.

I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you
and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you
and be your friend.

" Respect Life ........."

Respect Life .........

You win and are not satisfied
You achieve and are not fulfilled
How long will you run?
Behind how many conquests will you hide?

Respect Life…

When was the last time you loved just being alive?
Love can hurt.
But don’t close yourself with bitterness.

Open and give.
Again and again pour out your being
Till you are filled with gentleness...
Till you see beauty even in harshness.

" Lessons From Nature................"

Lessons from Nature...........

I learnt from the sun
That light has to be spread

The breeze taught me
How to be cool all the time

The trees inspired me to be colossal in giving
As I discovered serenity from water
And the vacuum made me understand
How to live with nothing around

The earth taught me how to nurture
The very people who trampled it

Fire made me realize the importance
Of being pure and yet involving

I learnt from space the virtue of
Being BIG and yet unassuming

For nature had all virtues a man needs to learn
In all its elements

" Crying.................."


Have you ever cried without shedding a tear?
Have you felt the pain of another when they are near?
Have you cried when a new born baby arrives
And cried when you see that child as it thrives

Have you ever loved someone so much you cry?
Knowing that you will fail them no matter how you try
To keep the pain of harm, of loss, of love, of life
Turning it into joy and goodness, instead of strife

Have you felt the tears fall like raindrops as you smile?
Realizing that this is peace, glad you walked that mile...
Have you loved so hard, that it hurts deep inside
When what you need is a touch, or love that doesn't hide
It seems that there are days when the tears fall
No matter what is good, the sadness removes it all

Crying they say is good for so many that true?
Good for the soul,
good to cleanse the hurt,
heal the blues

Lately life brings many tears, as the crying doesn't cease
The wars,
the famine,
the abuses,
neverending diseases

Loss of jobs,
being homeless,
addictions and dispair

Rarely do we see any happiness, only sadness in the air
I've felt the joys of motherhood, and captured all that love
Praying they would be safe and content as the white dove
Instead sometimes we fail, although it was not the intent
We do our best, still fail the test, tears can't fix the dents

Crying, crying, crying...seems that is what we do.....
The tears do not fix everything, they simply fail as glue

Although we try, the years go by,
We see through different eyes, no matter how I tried

Have you ever felt the tears as they drop like heavy rain
Thinking that soon, they will dry and there will be no pain

Have you ever cried so much that there are none left
Then realized that it doesn't really matter; it is all set

I have cried the tears of joy,
the tears of gladness,
the tears of sorrow,
the tears of forgiveness,
the tears of laughter,
the tears of anger,
the tears of grieving

I have cried a river, and filled every crack within my soul
yet, for some reason, I am certain, that there will be more
because no matter what life brings us,
tears come to shore

Of all the tears that I have shed, the one that means
the most to me..
is when I held my hands and asked
to be forgiven!

" Have You Ever Found ?.............."

Have you ever found ?………………

Have you ever found a friend that just touches you deep inside
You feel a special bond that you simply cannot hide
You give them a piece of your heart,
a view of what you are
Sometimes they live close to you,
sometimes they live too far.

It really doesn't matter, you were friends from the start
Soon you realize their memory is a piece of your heart
You feel like they're an angel, placed here just for you
You are always amazed at the sweet things that they do.

You don't have to see them or talk to them every day
To know that God has sent them in His own special way
How else could you explain,
this friendship and deep love
It must be an angel, sent from heaven above.

How can you love someone you've never really seen
The question you may ask, Is this just a dream?
Soon you realize, your feelings are quite sincere
Your friendship will continue year after year.

Funny when you talk you both seem to disagree
When you really look at it, you have to smile and say
The touching of our souls has taken place

Tonight as I said my prayers,
I prayed for my friend
I could not hardly wait until we talked once again
For God showed me the answer,
it was really quite simple
A soul never sees a face,

The feeling of love one feels for another friend
The feeling of wanting to be with each other again
Is the inner joy, that God places there
The love one feels on top of heaven's stairs.

if you are lucky and you have found such a friend
Remember it is God, who lives deep within
It is God's wishes,
……..have you ever found one?

" Scar Inside Your Soul................."

Scar Inside Your Soul.........

For your visions to become a reality,

your thoughts must realize the totality,

do not settle for normality,

or your insight will lack life’s array.

The key is to enhance your wisdom,

a challenge met only by some,

I will tell you how it must be done,

then I will be on my way.

The elements of life are all inclusive.

During your time here,

you must be intrusive.

Explore your inside and develop a summation.

Expel any thoughts of expectations.

Be humble to your realizations.

Separate your ideas from natural creations.

We all know the feeling of life’s wondrous pleasures,

in our lives,

we have risen in the wake of their treasures.

Not all in our trial here is meant to be glowing,

pain and sorrow are always unfolding.

It is not enough to identify their presence,

you must take them aside and absorb their existence.

Then not only will you know pain,

your insight will reflect it,

your nature will caress it,

your loving spirit will bless it.

Then all you have to do is understand it,

and accept it.

The last two commands may leave a scar inside your soul,

the price you will pay to reach your eternal goal.

Wisdom gained is the guiding hand,

that moves us toward

The eternal land.

" Sometimes The Day Comes .......... "

Sometimes The Day Comes ..........

Sometimes the day comes
when you try your level best
to achieve something
but you fail

Sometimes the day comes
when nobody understands you
and you feel that you are isolated
from the world

Sometimes the day comes
when you want to help the needy
but find yourself unable to
because of some reasons

Sometimes the day comes
when you are hungry and have a few bucks
but you see the child laborers and buy food for them

Sometimes the day comes
when Mom comes up with one answer
and Father with another
and you have to make your own decision

Sometimes the day comes
when you see that some people ditch others
because of their selfishness

Sometimes the day comes
when you want to tell something to your parents
but find yourself unable to because
you think that they might get hurt or misunderstand you

Sometimes the day comes
when your friends drift apart
not because you were not able to understand them
but because they were not able to understand you

Sometimes the day comes
when you want to smile
but can't find a place to even weep

Sometimes the day comes
when your beloved can't understand your feelings
and leaves you alone
and you look down and feel ashamed or embarrassed

But sometimes the day comes
when you learn from all your failure and think
"Those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly."

Don't look down, look up.

You are one of the persons to whom GOD is closest
and He loves you.
