Portrait of a Friend

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 8:05 am

I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.

I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.

I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.

I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.

I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.

I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

I can’t tell you who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.

In whole world
One person always loves me
Do you know the person?
He is one and only my papa
My papa is the best
He is very Kind hearted person
And also Loving, Caring & Bravo
My Dad is my good friend
He understands me and
Always supports me
I love my dad very much
I love you dear Papa
I love you so much

Hope Abides

Hope abides; therefore I abide.
Countless frustrations have not cowed me.
I am still alive, vibrant with life.
The black cloud will disappear,
The morning sun will appear once again
In all its supernal glory.

Thank You For Being A Friend To Me

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 10:22 am

Thank you for being a friend to me,
when needing someone there.
My failing hopes to bolster
and my secret fears to share.

Thank you for being so good to me
when it was hard to know
the wisest course to follow,
what to do and where to go.

Thank you for giving me confidence
when I had lost my way.
Speaking the word that led me through
the tunnel of the day.

Thank you for all you did and said
to ease the weight for me.
Never intruding, but there in the
background helping quietly.

Thank you not only for sympathy
in times of grief and stress;
But for all you have meant to me
in terms of happiness.

Many a lovely day we’ve known
and many a laugh we’ve had.
Thank you for being the kind of friend
that shares the good and bad.

I’d like to be the sort of friend
That you have been to me;
I’d always like to be the help
That you are glad to be.

I’d like to mean as much to you
Each moment of the day,
As you have meant,
good friend of mine,
To me along the way.

And this is just the wish somehow
That I could but repay,
A portion of the gladness
You have strewn along my way.

And could I have one wish this year,
This only would it be:
I’d like to be the sort of friend
That you have been to me.

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got
And home did trot
As fast as he could caper
Went to bed
And plastered his head
With vinegar and brown paper.

Honesty-Herbert Smith

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 6:42 am
Tags: , ,

Cast a long shadow or everyone to see
Even your friends and loved ones
Who on your side will always be

Cast a long shadow at night when the sun don’t shine
Make it filled with truth a honesty
And you will always have peace of mind

A man about 200 years ago cast his shadow across our land
He was called the father of our country
And truth and honesty was his stand

A man about 2000 years ago cast his shadow all around the world
Today his teachings have been heard
By almost every man, woman, boy, and girl

How long do you want your shadow to be
when your time grows near?
Do you want to take it with you
OR do you want to leave it here?

We shall overcome, We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day!
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

We walk hand in hand, We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand some day!
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

We shall live in peace, We shall live in peace
We shall live in peace some day!
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

The truth will make us free, The truth will make us free,
The truth will make us free some day,
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

We are not afraid, we are not afraid,
We are not afraid, today.
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

Black and white together, Black and white together
Black and white together now.
O! deep in my heart, I do believe that
We shall overcome some day!

My Precious Mother

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 12:21 pm

God created you precious Mother
In my eyes you’ll never grow old
Your smile is made from sunbeams
Your heart is pure as gold.

A life of hardship and sorrow
So much pain and so much despair
Yet He gave me someone so special
Full of love beyond compare.

You remind me of the flower you love
Arranged in such lovely array
Taking on the challenges of life
As you go about your busy day.

A Mother’s heart brings forth so much hope
As it does Mother’s love
Diligently fashioned by Angels
Sent from Heaven above.

When God created Mother’s
He gave you a special touch
He knew you were one of a kind
Mom, I love you very much.

You are a unique Mother
All my love is sent your way
May God walk beside you
Today and every Day.

Born To Live

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 7:14 am

I would like to be a flower which blooms to full glory and dies,
than being a tree that never blossoms.
I would like to be a spark that burns with a brilliant blaze for a moment,
than being a light which cannot show path to anyone.
I would like to be a superb meteor which carries a magnificent glow,
than being a sleepy and permanent planet.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall used my time.
I am born to Live. Not to Exist.

Be Truthful

Filed under: Poem — jagrutivalani @ 8:36 am

We tell lies when we are afraid..
Afraid of what we don’t know,
Afraid of what others will think,
Afraid of what will be found out about us.
But every time we tell a lie.. the thing we fear grows stronger.
Be truthful.
With others. With self.
