All of heaven's heroes have suffered remorse From hate, fear, lust, loneliness and war.
They do what they do with deliverance of heart Defeating the dark side of life and more.
Tears are a love-mates humble gift When it's time to say goodbye
Though the eyes are wet and swollen With time and patience they dry.
THE BELL RINGERS OF THE SOUL
Poets are the bell ringers of the soul As they depict the past, the present and beyond.
They sound their alarm of what lies ahead As the missteps of man live on.
THE GREATEST LESSON ONE CAN LEARN
The greatest lesson one can learn Is how when loved, to love in return.
Remaining true both body and soul Never loosing our common goal.
Mothers have great big aprons To hide from the world our flaws.
They kiss and scold when we do wrong Teaching compliance of laws.
With one foot in heaven and one down on earth I pray to be remembered and judged by my worth.
If I'm forced to camp, just outside your gate I will still be grateful and not, "hesitate."
SELF SERVING FOOLS
No matter how far in your marriage you've gone The highway of love has its rules.
The excitement of sex, trust and affection Never tolerates self-serving fools.
I love to be loved in the morning I love to be loved at night.
I love to be loved anytime For love in the darkness is light.
LOVE AND LIFE
With one foot in the future And one foot in the past Let us try to live our days As though each was our last.
Nations has survived all attempts to destroy Knowing the cruelty of war And,
we who remain Must help keep her free For those who can march no more!
A GOOD POEM
A good poem paints a picture For both your heart and brain.
It doesn't need a second chance To make its meaning plain.
HOW LUCKY I'VE BEEN
Wise men learn more from watching fools Than fools do from watching wise men.
I should know for I've been both. I can 't believe how lucky I've been.
Birds are really quite remarkable When left alone to do their thing.
We have robbed their eggs and plucked their plumage And yet they continue to sing.
Our confidence and trust in a higher power Helps guide us through every moment and hour.
Fidelity to ones promise and observance of law Lets our Lord know we heed his call.
Some have asked why must we study history; It just encourages us to live in the past.
When we forget history we repeat its mistake As the outcome of humanity is cast.
May God continue to bless Mankind Refusing evil, the upper hand.
It's up to us to stay resolute Defending the liberty of Man.
I love you and I need you It's a fact and not a lie. So if you plan to punish me Say anything, but good bye.
Better is a good friend in the house next door Than brothers and sisters who are far away.
The spirit of man needs the help of its friends To face all the problems of each fleeting day.
Gone till next year, are winters cold days of chill While the fever of love hits the ground on the run.
There's heavenly splendor wherever we look As earth is warmed by the rays of the sun.
King Solomon spoke of earth's flowers in the Bible And that where they appear the birds begin to sing.
The voices of love can be heard across the land And that lilies and roses are a sacred thing.
LOVE & ELECTRICITY
Love and electricity are a lot alike For we never seem to miss them till their gone.
We need both, every day of our life, And even more so between twilight and dawn.
The one thing that goes the furthest Towards making our lives more worthwhile
Which costs the least but does the most Is the sight of a friendly smile.
Those who wish to advise others Should practice what they preach For their
pupils need inspiring To listen to what they teach.
Heaven won't be heaven If I don 't see you there May the first to go Be me, is my prayer.
Nothing else man can conceive Is more luring than God's sky.
To be as one with the stars Is the wish of all who fly.
The twilight is first evening's bell A time of peace when all is well.
Another day has come and gone Not to return until the dawn.
EYES OF LOVE
Eyes that twinkle, I distrust For they are the distant stars.
Eyes in love have a steady glow Like Venus, the Moon or Mars.
MY FAVORITE POET
My favorite poet is our father of love Who was first to know us before birth.
His poetry prolongs every thing we love As his deliverance gives life its worth.
What Satan has planned for our harm Integrity will transform to good.
Adhering to morals gives us peace Teaching us to respond, as we should.
America is the birthday cake of earth As the ants march from every direction.
Thank God for all who have sworn to defend her Serving with love, honor, pride and affection.
War is an emotional release for man Practiced since the first stones were cast.
Could it be nature's way of thinning the numbers As the fallen are consumed by the past.
Even ordinary moments Aren't the same any more.
Together we have so much To plan, accomplish and explore.
What would our world become Without intervention from above?
Angry beings in a revolving cage With no sense of passion or love.
Our soldiers line up to be remembered As the best of the best at their job.
They wish to be needed and depended on To save all we love from the mob.
They risk their life and limb for liberty Standing firm against evil unwilling to break.
To be part of something greater than themselves They are willing to sacrifice whatever it will take.
After death who will miss us When to heaven we have gone?
Will family cry our name in tears As in their hearts we live on?
When war breaks out, boundaries change And all who die are a token Of the
rage that must run it's course Before words of peace are spoken.
Love, indeed, descends from heaven, Like a shooting star across the sky.
Love sometimes stirs the dust Till tears fall free from the eye.
Those who wish to be, not forgotten, Just days after they're dead and gone
Must write such things worth remembering Or commit acts, worth passing on.
The poet Horace once expressed That roses were worth more than grain
Seed fills a hungry man's stomach Where roses feed his heart and brain.
THE SEED OF LOVE
The Lord planted love within mankind's heart Though things can grow sour when from" Him" we depart.
Love and hate are but two sides of life's golden coin So be ready for both no matter whom you join.
Our conscience makes us righteous It's a whisper of God in man.
For without it we're mere puppets Who dance to the devil's hand.
Sorrow is better than laughter For by grieving, we're improved.
Blessed be all who morn Till from sadness they're removed
Wars were waged where brave men died As patriots fought side by side.
Our flag is still the pearl of earth Because of those who prove her worth.
Mankind is born from a woman's womb With a short life that's full of trouble.
Faith is our refuge in times of woe For without it our troubles double.
Better is a good friend in the house next door Than brothers and sisters who are far away. The spirit of man needs the help of its friends To face all the problems of each fleeting day.
WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE
The wise listen to increase their learning Where the scorners of wisdom close their mind.
The hearts of the prudent gather knowledge For a soul without grace becomes confined.
The biggest question of life is "why?" The wrath of man is always in season
Why is our world the way it is Like a tragic poem without rhyme or reason.
From the very first time man took refused And peered out at the moon in the night.
Acts of love, lust, hate and human sorrow Have been committed in the presence of its light.
THE ARMOR OF GOD
Eagerly plotting to disrupt God's works Evil swallows up souls like the shifting sand.
The armour of God is our divine protection Shielding every child, woman, and man.
Most of the time as a politician stands up Along with the truth, their brain sits down.
Promising anything and everything to anyone While posing to the public, to be on common ground.
LOVE CONSUMES ALL
Love consumes all physical functions Hearing, taste, touch, thought and smell.
It can heal, destroy, weaken or bond Those caught in its presence and spell.
PASSION AND LOVE
Thank heaven for passion and love Blessings from God to man.
Without them we're mere creatures Subsisting like ants in the sand.
SHOULD TOMORROW START WITHOUT ME?
Should tomorrow start without me Be proud I choose to serve
Our faith and our patriotism Earn the freedom we deserve.
No one finds satisfaction from serving themselves Contentment takes place,
by our unselfish concern. The more we repent and regret our wrongs
The more we are able to retain what we learn.
By A. R. Gronos
I'm thankful for all good with which
I've been blessed throughout life.
For hardships, and for heartaches, too,
For failures, trials and strife.
I'm thankful for each little prayer
Someone has said for me;
For loving thoughts, for friendliness,
For all good will I see.
My thanks for hands, with which I could
Scribe someone on life's way;
For all small deeds of kindness
I'm allowed to do each day.
I'm thankful for all happiness,
Each long hour of deep sorrow;
God thus in his great mercy gives
More wisdom for tomorrow.
“Smooth roads never make good drivers. Smooth seas never make good sailors. Clear skies never make good pilots. A problem free life never makes a strong and good person. Have a tough but winning day ahead! Be strong
enough to accept the challenges of life. Do not ask life, 'why me?'
Instead say, 'Try me'."
From - Nain Singh (MONUC)
Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.
~ Henry David Thoreau quotes
