I May Never Pass This Way Again

Life is a very precious gift, and we are so blessed to experience it. In life, we all have journeys to take, and along the way, we experience many things. Let our lives be worthwhile.

Our Existence

We are all travelers on earth. We meet people, make friends, and experience many things. We become part of people's lives, and they become part of ours. We encounter happiness, problems, successes, and failures. We laugh, love, cry, inspire, succeed, and fall. These are all part of life as human beings. We do not know how long we'll live. Let us make each day truly worthy by being kind to everyone, by lending a helping hand, and by reaching out to those who need us. Let us be each other's guiding light. Only then can we appreciate our existence. May this poem serve as an inspiration to all.

Journey of Life

In this path of life I'm on a journey
The wonder of nature I came to see
Where God's creations are a thing of beauty
A reflection of blessings given to me

I'm on a mission for a short span of time
To spread goodwill to all mankind
Life is too short, I should do things right
To make this life's journey truly worthwhile

Today is the Day

If I could ease a troubled mind
Or if I could lend a helping hand
Now's the day for me to start
To relieve the pain of a broken heart

We may see each other sometime again
If not tomorrow, we're not sure when
So let us laugh now as long as we can
Or cry if we need to let go of our pain

Be An Inspiration

On earth I am just a passerby
Let my stay be fruitful while I have time
Kindness I will show to my fellowmen
Acts of good deeds I will extend to them

If my words of wisdom have healed one's soul
And have strengthened those who were about to fall
Only then could I say that I have answered God's call
And have been an inspiration to one and all

Tomorrow May Not Come

I shall never put off what I can do today
Nor ever defer and wait for another day
For tomorrow may not come, I shall not delay
Let this be my moment to show love and care

My journey on earth is transient and brief
The path is so narrow and is a one-way street
I'll never let my existence be in vain
For I may never pass this way again

This resonates with all right thinking people, Tess. Let us do our bit to make our journey and those of others that bit better. It is a question of attitude in the end - siva
