They make me sad too not knowing what tomorrow brings??? sad.gif

"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen,
nor touched...but are felt in the heart."


Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.
There i behold my self-form
In the Dance-Delight of the Absolute



Every Night and every Morn
Some to Misery are born
Every morn and every Night
Some are born to sweet Delight
Some are born to Endless night

The Edge Of Eternity

by Karl Wild AKA GodsGift

The word forever is often spoken,
In relationships young and old,
Innocent hearts are usually broken,
With words that never seem to hold.

Most know what I'm talking about,
Some have yet to feel the pain,
The mind tells you without a doubt,
Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

So you listen and take a chance,
Forget all about flirting with disaster,
Because love has you in a trance,
And your heart is beating faster.


To hear somebody say "I love you",
Could be the greatest feeling ever known,
But if those words turnout untrue,
Soon enough you'll be all alone.

Still it never crosses our mind,
When it's all said and done we'll see,
That it's harder then it looks to find,
The
edge of eternity

"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen,
nor touched...but are felt in the heart."


Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.
There i behold my self-form
In the Dance-Delight of the Absolute



Every Night and every Morn
Some to Misery are born
Every morn and every Night
Some are born to sweet Delight
Some are born to Endless night

Sea Fever
-John Masefield

I must go down to the seas again,
to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song
and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face
and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again,
for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call
that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day
with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume,
and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again
to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way
where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn
from a laughing fellow rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream
when the long trick's over.

Sunset
- Louise Gluck

My great happiness
is the sound your voice makes
calling to me even in despair; my sorrow
that I cannot answer you
in speech you accept as mine.

You have no faith in your own language.
So you invest
authority in signs
you cannot read with any accuracy.

And yet your voice reaches me always.
And I answer constantly,
my anger passing
as winter passes. My tenderness
should be apparent to you
in the breeze of summer evening
and in the words that become
your own response.

Desiderata
- Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. wub.gif
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

ORDER OF THINGS

There is a rightful order found
Beyond the things that seem to be,
Something beneath the surface seen
Hidden behind prevalent schemes.

I know this fact through feelings felt
in such relief that come to mind,
When in life I do my bit
And leave results to Spirit's will.

There is a rightful order found
In which Spirit our lives arrange,
Giving us what we rightly earn
With precision in circumstance,

Designed to rhyme and meet somehow
In a rightful order, time, and place.



I CAN DREAM
By Annabelle Aeng

There's no fairy godmother
To make my wish come true.
No genie in a bottle to bring me to you.
No prayer on a fallen star
No magic potion in a jar.
But i can dream and when i do.
I dream that i'm there with you



MY HOPE CARRIES ME

Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.
There I behold my Self-form
In the Dance-Delight of the Absolute.









"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen,
nor touched...but are felt in the heart."


Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.

Some are born to sweet Delight

Train Of Life
-=-=-=-=-=-= -



Some folks ride the train of life
Looking out the rear,
Watching miles of life roll by,
And marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance,
Of wasted days gone by,
And curse their life for what it was,
And hang their head and cry.

But I don't concern myself with that,
I took a different vent,
I look forward to what life holds,
And not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine,
As securely as I can be,
I want to be out on the front,
To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change,
Blowing in my face,
I want to see what life unfolds,
As I move from place to place.

I want to see what's coming up,
Not looking at the past,
Life's too short for yesterdays,
It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy,
While you are looking back,
Go up front, and you may find,
Your life has jumped the track.

It's all right to remember,
That's part of history,
But up front's where it's happening,
There's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living,
Is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward,
To another year and ten.

It's searching all the byways,
Never should you refrain,
For if you want to live your life,
You gotta drive the train.

-ANON

Naseeb mein nahin tha jo - humko mila nahin

Rembrandt’s self portrait from 1669, the year of his death.

Watching the last boat
- Linda Gregg

The crash is inside.
In slow motion. Splinters
in the mind’s confusion.
Each evening the last boat goes
across to the other island.
When it is too dark to see,
I watch anyhow, remembering
how I wept that day in the Met
over a last self-portrait
by Rembrandt. The guard telling me
again and again it was closing time.

THINGS


Every night I sit here by my window ...window

Staring at the lonely avenue ...avenue

Watching lovers holdin' hands

And laughin' (ha ha ha)

Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

Thinkin' 'bout things

Like a walk in the park ...things

Like a kiss in the dark ...things

Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)

What about the night we cried

Things like a lover's vow

Things that we don't do now

Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do



Memories are all I have to cling to ...cling to

And heartaches are the friends

I'm talkin' to ...but you got me now

When I'm not thinkin' of just how much

I love you .... I love you, too

I'm thinkin' the things we used to do

Used to do, thinkin' 'bout things

Like a walk in the park ...things

Like a kiss in the dark ...things

Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)

What about the night we cried

Things like a lover's vow

Things that we don't do now

Thinkin' about the things we used to do



I still can hear the juke box softly

Playin' ...playin'

And the face I see each day belongs to you

Belongs to you..

But there's not a single sound

And there's nobody else around

But that's just me thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

We used to do, thinkin' 'bout things

Like a walk in the park ...things

Like a kiss in the dark ...things

Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)

What about the night that we cried

Things like a lover's vow

Things that we don't do now

Thinkin' about the things we used to do

And heartaches are the friends I'm talkin' to

You got me thinkin' 'bout

The things we used to do ...I hope so

Thinkin' 'bout the things we used to do

"The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen,
nor touched...but are felt in the heart."


Far, very far, into the world of the farthest beyond
My hope carries me and places me
On the sweetest lap of the unknown.

When We Two Parted
- George Byron, Lord Byron

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.
The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow—
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are broken,
And light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o’er me—
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met—
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears.
