A beautiful life - a poem


Life is beautiful! I am ever grateful for this gift of life. This beautiful life of mine seems so blessed, rich and full that I never cease to celebrate it. At this time of the year when the old gives way to the new, I need to spend time being grateful for all that life has given me. I thank my maker for all the beauty that is around me, for all that makes this life seem more special.

Being grateful for what we have is the best attitude, we can ever have. Life has it moments of ups and downs, but I would like to look at the best side of life and fill my mind with beautiful memories. I would like to take a moment to rejoice over this beautiful life iof mine!

This blessed life of mine I am grateful for,

Every moment seems special, more beautiful than before,

Hand picked just for me, are my days,

Divinely guided are all my ways!


The trees seems to exist just for me,

Bursts into blooms for me to see,

They put out their shoots in tender green,

To awaken within the shrine of dreams!


Source


The gentle breeze, laden with perfume,

Perfectly blended with the season’s best,

Reverberating through the trembling palms,

Rhythmically swaying to the winds musical trance!



The joy of the twinkling stars at night,

Translucent rays of silver dreams,

Shimmering with love and quiet peace,

Heaven’s call to love life it seems!


Source


The color of spring’s magnificent robe,

The shoots that appear as leaves of gold,

The bud that burst forth into song,

Mirroring life in brilliance bold!


The song of the stream's, gurgling cheer,

As laughter of children ringing out clear,

The song bird are orchestrating a choir,

Trees as props against heaven’s amphitheater!


This blessed life of mine, so full, so rich,

I’ll never trade for another or ever switch,

For riches and treasures that perish and decay,

Nothing can make me throw it away!



I count my blessings moment by moment,

I live my life richly instant by instant,

Ardently enjoying the here and the now,

This, my life a gift from above!!

Life is certainly very beautiful indeed and we only need to open up our hearts, minds and senses to realise the beauty in this world created by the Great One above. We have a lot to be grateful for - We have the cherished gift of life, our family and friends and He has given us free choice to make our world better using the gifts that He has given each of us. So let's make life and the world a more beautiful one!

Beautiful poem with a wonderful message of life and God bless you Sophie.

Wow that was fast! Yes indeed, there is so much to be grateful for, all we need to do is look around and see.. we need to get into the habit of counting our blessings and thanking the creator for all that we are, all that we have and all that there is. My life has been enriched from the day I have started to thank God for everything!

Thank you Ritchie for taking the time to rejoice with me .. :)

God bless you and your wonderful family!

Pure quality, my dear sofs!

"Being grateful for what we have is the best attitude, we can ever have."

Such high awareness!

I already knew that, but so nice to meet it again and again from you.

Up and, just like life itself: wonderfull!

Antoine Van Hove, thank you so much for the very encouraging comment.

If only most people knew that the best attitude one can have is an attitude of gratitude there would not be so much negative talk and action.

It helps me to look forward to each day because there is yet hope!

Thank you once again and yes it is indeed good to meet again!

Hi sofs. Yet another lovely poem from the heart. I couldn't agree more. There's so much beauty in nature..we should indeed be grateful to live on such a wonderful planet.

I find it's the people who have the least, who are the most grateful. A lot of people who have abundant riches, don't seem to recognize how lucky they are, and are frequently unwilling to help others without first being asked. Cheers.

Yes Timorous, There is so much to be thankful for. I just decided to be thankful for all that we take for granted.

If we could find it in our hearts to be thankful for everything, our life would be much better.

Thank you for taking the time to comment, God bless!

sofs - A beautiful reminder of how blessed we all are to have mother earth and her children, in the form of all nature. You wrote a most creative line - "The color of spring’s magnificent robe," - I wish it were mine and I just love it. Thank you for being so filled with talent and inspiration and for sharing it with us all.

Hey Nclark, You welcome anytime, I had also failed to be grateful back then until life put me back on the right track.. I am glad that you were reminded to be grateful... Hey, no matter what anyone says or does, your happiness is yours, keep it.. don't get offended and bitter .. don't let others get to you... ( I did see some stuff on the forums)keep being cheerful!! Love to you and have a Merry Christmas!!((( hugs)))
