An early poem and a wakeup for us all to see the beauty in life, overcome worry and live infused with love.
A tribute to mothers, especially mine - "lights that guide us through the dark".
Dedicated to 5 of my school teachers, the poem ends with me yearning to join them behind the blackboard someday.
A message that Hope shalt spring, eternal in the human breast - and that we "live eternal in God's light of love".
For mentors who "push the boundaries of our abilities", a "chain of nurturers showing us the way".
Love, from a woman's eyes, for her man "whose graceful nature and toil, kept us in abundance and comfort".
An earnest plea to love one another "for it is only when we express love that we become closer to our true self".
How the world can be if Builders (Change Agents) were all given a chance to "reshape that stream of activity around us until the possibility of greatness is achieved".
One more of those devotional poems that talks of life, with "experiences so engraved in our minds - emotions that linger in all shapes and kinds".
I think of those days I was rapt - "so deep the bond we lovingly forged - feel you beside me our lips engorged".
Paraphrasing Bryan Adams' Star in this line "Dont give up, dont look back, theres a silver lining, its out there somewhere - We need a shining star to depend on, so shine forth and find the star in there".
Fiction, for a couple in love. "A surety that his love would stay on target, unerring as a dart - As close as two friends could get, there from the very start".
Wonder, for a very special woman. "hear an old clock chime - As it turns midnight with the promise of turning dreams true - Dreams you held on to for a long time, that reach out and touch you".
Jointly, Sons of God - wake up and life the Life Divine. "Why does none fight for the very principle of right - Sons of God wake up, live the good life and in might".
On finding a higher purpose than war. "We've always killed the very best of humanity... Where men gather together to teach Love's gospel - Come let's unite now, cast together our own spell"
Live Valiant! "Guess I should, if I could go out and fight - For the victory of Good - fight with all might".
So verdant they are that my heart is set a tingling... I feel a love emanating for all of God's creation... The night sky and silvery moon sets me singing... With the smell of Earth and Nature, I feel an elation...
Inspired by a Tolkien story about a painter Niggle and how his art transformed the afterlife
