We Sparkle and Shine

Deep within us, there's light. When we do good things to others, that's the time when we sparkle and shine. I wrote this poem after reading a quote from Elisabeth Kubler Ross about stained glass art.

Inspirational Quote

I was inspired to write this poem after reading a quote written by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross:

People are like stained glass windows
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out
But when the darkness sets in, their true beauty
Is revealed only if there's light from within.

The Stained Glass Art

Bits of glasses pieced together
In array of colors that sparkle
The rays of the sun make them glitter
A mosaic art that is full of wonder

Skillfully made in different designs
They vary in sizes, shapes, and styles
Exquisite in form and fragile to touch
A thing of beauty is this stained glass art

We Glow Like Stained Glasses

Deep within us there's something that shines
Like stained glasses we reflect some lights
We inspire the hopeless by making them smile
In their darkest moments and loneliest nights

For every word that we gently speak
And for every work that proves good deed
We change the world for those who seek
And let them see the light that they need

Let the beauty of our hearts reveal
That the light within us is genuine and real
Let the broken hearts be mended and healed
It's by helping others that we see ourselves fulfilled

In our own special way we are stained glass arts
We sparkle and shine through the beauty of our hearts
In the darkest moments of each other's sad lives
We rise up and shine to give hope and light

Inspiring verse, Tess. Just acknowledging others is enough to spread the cheer in busy lives, but even that is hard to come by sometimes! In fact, this is a secret to our happiness that we have to share with others. When we make others happy, we make our day! - siva
