FEELINGS

Posted in POEMS on January 27, 2009 by mybookofwisdom

The first time that I met you 
you took my breath away 
You showed that you cared for me 
Forever from that day 

The second time I met you 
I lost my heart for sure 
Feelings that had flooded in 
I knew there was no cure 

The third time that I met you 
I knew right there and then 
That we would be together 
My life’s partner and my friend 

The fourth time that I met you 
Butterflies they did fly 
I knew right from that moment 
To loose you I would die.

JOURNEYS

Posted in POEMS on January 27, 2009 by mybookofwisdom

When two worlds collide,the days mould to one, 
we look to our hearts,the things that we’ve done, 
each day here so precious,it could be our last, 
no time to hold anger,or hurt that has passed. 

With each day we awaken,a new dawn does rise, 
we open our eyes,and stretch up to the skies, 
give thanks for our life,thanks here today, 
and give understanding for things i cant say. 

Our wings will unfold and the feathers will spread, 
and soon we shall fly ,with new dawns ahead, 
a journey so vast,adventures unseen, 
to fly with the eagle ,to see whats so green. 

And one will look back,and think of this all, 
no regrets on the past,just lessons so tall, 
the journeys come forward,and this time will end, 
move forward our futures,with gods love to send. 

Our thanks for our lifes,and thanks for our loves, 
may we all remain pure,like white turtle doves, 
and shall we move onward and upward once more, 
with spirit amongst us and love at the door.

THE PATHWAY

Posted in POEMS on January 27, 2009 by mybookofwisdom

As I walk the path between life and death, 
I see the birds and hear their call. 

With each step forward I smell the new mown grass. 
And I wonder at the fragrance of the flowers. 

I quicken my pace as familiar faces smile, in welcome of me. 

And friendly hands extend to clasp in mine. 

I hear a gentle, loving voice, that calms my puzzled soul. 
“Welcome home,have no fear. You are safe and those you loved are here Come into the garden and rest awhile.” 

And as I sit, a loved one comes and leads me further on I smile and sigh as I realise That the pains of the earth are gone. 
My body was tired so I laid it down. 
But my spirit journeys on…

LIVE EACH DAY WITH LOVE

Posted in POEMS on January 27, 2009 by mybookofwisdom
Life is a constant process of growth and change.
Each day is a miracle filled with new
discoveries and challenges.
Some days bring hurt and disappointment also, but
these, too, are challenges, and as you grow and
change you learn to handle them with more ease.
Growing older means growing in experience,
growing in courage and compassion, growing in
love and growing in strength.
Growing older means changing your life to make
it meaningful to you, changing your attitudes,
and staying flexible about everyday living.
Life keeps getting better as long as
you have a positive attitude.
Remind yourself of all the things you love
about life, stay in touch with your loved ones and
friends, and do what your own heart tells you to.
Your tomorrow will always bring you good things
if you live each day with love. ~Donna Levine

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

Posted in POEMS on January 27, 2009 by mybookofwisdom
I’ve never made a fortune,
and it’s probably too late now.
But I don’t worry about that much,
I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way,
I’m reaping better than I sowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven’t got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going’s tough.
But I’ve got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He’s bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I’ll not ask for other blessings,
I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people
in this world have it worse than I do.
I realize just how blessed most of us really are.

SEASONS

Posted in POEMS on January 24, 2009 by mybookofwisdom

Like the flowers in spring 
Our love grew 
Like the warmth of summer 
Closer we drew 
Like the trees in autumn 
Love striped bare 
By the cold of winter 
You did not care.

HANDWRITING ON THE WALL

Posted in POEMS on January 24, 2009 by mybookofwisdom

If you think you are beaten, you are; 
If you think you dare not, you don’t! 
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t, 
It’s almost certain you won’t. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost; 
For out in the world we find 
Success begins with a fellow’s will; 
It’s all in the state of mind! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

If you think you’re outclassed, you are; 
You’ve got to think high to rise. 
You’ve got to be sure of yourself 
Before you ‘ll ever win the prize. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Life’s battles don’t always go 
To the stronger or faster man; 
But sooner or later the man who wins 
Is the person who thinks he can!
