Love After Love

The time will comewhen, with elation,you will greet yourself arrivingat your own door, in your own mirror,and each will smile at the other's welcome, And say, sit here. Eat.You will love again the stranger who was yourself.Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heartto itself, to the stranger who has loved you

It Might Have Been

We will be what we could be. Do not say, "It might have been, had not or that, or this." No fate can keep us from the chosen way; He only might who is. We will do what we could do. Do not dream Chance leaves a hero, all uncrowned to grieve. I hold, all men are greatly what...

A Naughty Little Comet

There was a little comet who lived near the Milky Way!She loved to wander out at night and jump about and play. The mother of the comet was a very good old star;She used to scold her reckless child for venturing out too far. She told her of the ogre, Sun,...

Life Is Fine

I went down to the river,I set down on the bank.I tried to think but couldn't,So I jumped in and sank.I came up once and hollered!I came up twice and cried!If that water hadn't a-been so coldI might've sunk and died. But it was Cold in that water! ...

I Love Life

Our life, we may shape and mold, It’s more precious, than all the gold. As we wake, there’s a shine, From our sun, the day is fine. With our family, life we share, They love us back, they truly care. We are never, ever alone, We are people, we’re not stone. I love life, for the little things, When a little child sings. Abundant joy, we may create, I love...

Making Life Worth While

Every soul that touches yours – Be it the slightest contact – Get there from some good; Some little grace; one kindly thought; One aspiration yet unfelt; One bit of courage For the darkening sky; One gleam of faith To brave the thickening ills of life; One glimpse of brighter skies – To make this life worthwhile And heaven a surer heritage. By George Eliot

Those We Love

They say the world is round – and yet I often think it’s square, So many little hurts we get From corner’s here and there. But there’s one truth in life I’ve found While journeying east and west, The only folks we really wound Are those we love the best. We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest, And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those...

A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This rhyming poem is the spark that can reignite the fires within you. It challenges you to go out and live your life in the present moment as a “hero" and leave your mark on this world. Act! Take Action! Be Active! **** Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what...

Secret Flowers

"Is love a light for me? A steady light, A lamp within whose pallid pool I dream Over old love-books? Or is it a gleam, A lantern coming towards me from afar Down a dark mountain? Is my love a star? Ah me!- so high above so coldly bright! The fire dances. Is my love a fire Leaping down the twilight muddy and bold? Nay, I'd be...
