~ Life Is Beautiful ~

Life is not a bed of roses
Neither full of thorns
It's beautiful
It's wonderful
Needed to be careful

Life is aim
Aiming for success
Hard working in pain
Sometimes in vain
But no pain no gain

Life is hope
Loosing hope
They're looser
Wiser ones hope
They're winner

Life is battleship
Having kingship
In times of wars
Citizen's patriotism
Protects country ship

Life is relationship
Here we make friendship
Some are friendly
And are trustworthy
Out of many, they're few

Life is a challenge
Its full of ups and downs
One being brave
One being wise
Wins the challenge

Life is Love
Love for one's parents
Love for one's childrens
Love among lovers
And to live life, its love

Life is a gift of God
It's only life to live
Let love rule our life
To make life wonderful
As life is beautiful

~ Learned ~

It is not what we read,
but what we remember,
that makes us learned

It is not what we intend,
but what we do that makes us useful.

It is not a few faint wishes,
but a life long struggle,
that makes us valiant.

~ Moment In Time ~

We talked,
We walked,
for a Moment in Time.

You passed through my life and left your mark.
You may never pass my way again,
Or you may stay for a lifetime.

No matter what,
I want to say thank you for the impression you made
that will stay with me for eternity.

I enjoyed the walk,
I enjoyed the talk.
I am blessed for that moment in time.

The moment I know you
I knew you would affect my life,
though your role I did not know.
There is so much I want to know.

I asked myself, "Why him?
When so many people pass through my life each day,
why him? "

What attracts me to you?
What makes me want to know more?
I want to know.

Even if my questions are never answered,
There is one thing I want you to know.
I have been blessed by the effect you had on me in that
Moment in Time.

~ I Found Everything ~

I found everything
In the search for Me
I discovered Truth

In the search for Truth
I discovered Love

In the search for Love
I discovered God

And in God
I have found everything ....

~ Alone ~

People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim
Not on success or on worldly fame
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers

For only the knowledge that we're understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good
And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
When we "lock up our hearts" and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find

A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life's completeness and richness depends
On the things we share
with our loved ones
and friends.

~ A Matter Of Trust ~

As we live out our lives from day to day
We come to realize there’s only one way,
To meet life’s challenges, as we surely must,
It comes down to one thing, it’s a matter of trust,

We rely on our faith in all that we do,
Without it there’s no hope left for me or you,
Just think on how much , on others we really rely,
Without faith in them, we’d never get by.

Think of the driver of our local bus,
He takes us around without any fuss,
The pilots of planes that fly through the sky,
Without trust in them we never would fly.

The postman each day who delivers the mail,
If there was no one to do that, we’d raise such a wail,
The doctor who treats us when we are ill,
We depend on his knowledge, to prescribe the right pills

Just think for a moment as the days fly on by,
How much on others we we always rely,
We have faith in our cars each day that we drive,
That they’ll transport us quickly, and we safely arrive.

So take time to ponder , whatever we do,
Trust is the element that see’s us get through,;
But above all things else, as through life we plod,
The greatest of all, is to have trust in Allah.

~ Towards The light ~

By moonlight,
or starlight,
or in the sun’s bright rays,
I journey,
guiding my way
by keeping to the light
as best I can.

Sometimes all seems dark,
then I remember
how the poppy turns its head,
following the sun’s passage across the sky,
then rests in night’s cool shadows,
bowing in thanks
to the Creator
makes the stalk
stand straight and strong,
drawing deep from its roots
a wine dark love.

In moonlight,
the garden glows,
silvering the poppies.
And even by starlight
you can tell shades of darkness
if you try.

So do not lose heart
when vision dims.
Journey forth
as best you can
bloom when you are able,
rest when you must,
keep your faith,
keep always
towards the light.

~ 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, never ending diseases
Loss of jobs,
being homeless,
addictions and despair

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!

~ Tired Of Empty Promises ? ~

Did you place all your hopes in the things of this world
To find you've never really been satisfied ?
And you've never really been at peace in your heart
Regardless of the things you have tried.

Perhaps it was money, prestige or relationships
That left you disappointed or betrayed.
Or you've never really felt like you ever fit in
No matter where it was you stayed.

If you're tired of the vain promises
And the pale answers the world offers up,
Let's pray to Allah, ask Him to save you
Then I promise He'll fill your cup.

There's nothing this world can give a person
That could ever substitute or replace
A personal relationship with God
And knowing you're covered by grace.

~ Surrender ~

In the stillness of the morning
Oh God I come to You.
I pray that on this day
You’ll help me to get through.
I pray You’ll guide each of my steps
As I live as for You today.
Please give me strength and courage
To live my life Your way.

In the business of the day
I come to You
Yaa Allah
I know I get impatient Lord
For I am terribly flawed.
But please Lord take my worries
I give them all to You.
And help me trust You
In everything I do.

In the struggles of the evening
Please help me Lord get through.
Often times I just can’t cope
And I don’t know what to do.
Though storms rage up against me
Don’t let me lose the fight.
For Your strength is all I need
So keep me in your sight.

In the quiet of the night time
Oh Lord I pray to you.
Please protect my family
Each day and each night too.
I ask Lord for Your special touch
To cover us with love.
To keep us safe all through the night
As You watch us from above.

~ I'm Just A Woman ~

A woman needs to be assured
In each and every way,
She needs the warmth of loving words
That only you can say.

She needs a lot of understanding …
When she's feeling somewhat down.
She needs for you to make her smile,
And take away her frown.

A woman's heart is fragile
Her feelings are that way too,
Times she feels so sad inside,
Not knowing what to do.

It's hard to be a woman,
Misunderstood in many ways,
Sometimes all it takes to help,
Is a loving word, to make her day.

She needs to know that she's the one,
That fills your heart with desire,
She needs to be told often,
That she sets your soul on fire.

She needs that soft and tender touch
As if she were a fragile rose,
And feel that she's so special.
From all others, you could have chose.

She needs to hear, "I Love you",
Whether close or miles apart,
She needs to know… she's the one,
That's the center of your heart.

So, please listen when I need to talk,
Please kiss away my tears,
Let me share my worries with you,
And help me face my fears.

You see, I'm just a woman.

~ To Be One ~

To Be One ....

Not all love

no matter how strong

gets a chance to have a lifetime

of expression

some love

though it be all powerful

can only shine

in the shortness

of just the smallest time

being a love that’s true

its life force, its shadow

its tune

will live on in the hearts

of those two

that for whatever time

got the honor, the privilege

the pleasure

to be one…

~ The Pendulum ~

My feelings and thoughts
Are like a pendulum
Sometimes I am sure of what I feel
Then when I least expect it something happens
Doubt enters my mind
Making my thoughts full of fear
For I have been there before
I don’t want to go again

The pendulum swings making me unsure
Ever so slightly thoughts enter my mind
Who are you and what do you want from life
Will our desires clash and make life miserable

One day I feel I know a good and loving man
Then you will get angry and scare me again
So the pendulum swings to and fro
Sometimes making my heart hurt so
For I know what pain is like
Deep within were no one can see
How easily threatened I can be
From the past to the future

The pendulum slowly swings
Mixing all the emotions of the times
You have shared with others before me
For I have not known but one
His pendulum swung wildly
Back and forth changing his moods
I suffered for his insecurities
The ability to compete in his world
So I paid the price with pain
Over and over again
And the pendulum swung

~ When Time Has Ended ~

Why feel proud of the world which is temporary
what if all is lost and gone
and leaving you

What if the time stopped
and you do not realize
is there a way for you
to return to repeat the past

The world is filled with ornaments
anything and everything imaginable
will return to Him

When the time has called
the true friend is only charity
when the time has stopped
true friend left is only ... silence

~ Beauty ~

May all beings be filled with joy and peace.
May all beings everywhere, the strong and the weak,
The great and the small, the mean and the powerful,
The short and the long, the subtle and the gross:
May all beings everywhere, seen and unseen,
Dwelling far off or nearby, being or waiting to become:
May all be filled with lasting joy.

Let no one deceive another,
Let no one anywhere despise another,
Let no one out of anger or resentment
Wish suffering on anyone at all.
Just as a mother with her own life
Protects her child, her only child, from harm,
So within yourself
Let grow a boundless love for all creatures.

Let our love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.
Then as we stand or walk, sit or lie down,
As long as we are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Our life will bring heaven to earth.

~ My Words ~

My words, speak for my heart
Not waiting for anyone
Expected nothing, but nothing…
Then noone can no longer disappointment me

My memories I can’t let go
Even If I wanted…
Providing comfort and pain,
In one thought.

My words, will no longer be said
My heart to remain broken
Silencing my words
Keeping them to myself

I know noone care for them…
As I remain quiet
It burns my throat
And stings my heart

My words…
Are no longer words
Just the past…
And now just thoughts.

~ Unclaimed ... Unloved ~

Life is like an autumn leaf
Lie around unclaimed
The breeze blows me around
To be trampled under the feet of men.

Natures cruel feast has bestowed me with pain
Pain of being a part
Just a part of someone
Pain of departing,
Departing from that one

Pick me up like a rose,
And hold me to your heart
Keep me there till he does not come
And when he comes do a good deed
Dig the earth below
And bury me deep
For I don't want to lie around
Unclaimed, unloved.

~ Fake People ~

Fake people Are people that are not real
They always try to deceive you
And make you think that
they are the real deal

With fake people You can never see the light
Because when you are staring into their eyes
It's always dark and never bright

Fake people are like mirrors
You can see right through them
They are always lying to you
But you already know it's a scam

Fake people are always trying
To be something that they are not
But when you get a good look at them
You realize that they don't look no where near as hot

Fake people think
That they gain a reputation
But in my eyes
They are an embarrassment to the world
They are always trying to convince you
To believe who they say they are
But a fake person can't fool me

Fake people waste time
But they never pay attention
to the time that they are wasting
Only because their minds are always racing
They are always trying to impress you
With things that you never notice
But you wouldn't be impressed
Even if you noticed
People don't like to be lied to
So I think it's better to tell the truth
And to let people see you
for the real you

You have a chance
To be a leader of the pack
And I don't think that things
Can get any better than that

Fake people think
That they can lie to get what they want
But what they want
Doesn't accept false identity
All that they ask for
Is an ounce of simplicity

Fake people think
that when people tell them the truth
they are the enemy
But all they are trying to do
Is mold you into the person they know you can be
Because deep down inside
I know the real you is a star
And I think that it's time for the fake you
And the real you to depart

Trust me
You don't want to go down that road
Because people Don't have to be rocket scientists to know
That a fake person is living in our society
Lucky for us real people
That we have a variety

Fake people think
That they are being real
But there is no real way to be fake

Maybe that will teach them
To put some thought into the decisions
That they make

I will always try to be me
And nobody else
Because if I did
It would be very easy for you to tell

Sometimes fake people Are hard to believe
And they never realize
What the real person within them can achieve
You should rise
From underneath all that clutter
Because there is only one you
And there will never be another
And so the lesson here
Has been discovered
To never become a fake
..........Or you will suffer
