Smile

bitter sweet of life
the moment is fleeting
let’s smile

a smile predicts
the next moment
to be honeydew
a smile welcomes
the next chapter
to be hope-filled
a smile lifts
the heavy spirit
to be victorious

sorrow interweaves with joy
it is meaningless
to be sober minded
it is all just vanity
let’s smile

a smile gives us reasons
to live on
a smile humbles us
to know our maker
a smile sates us
with a grateful heart

Breath of life

Let’s celebrate today
for the kindness
we showed to self
and another
breathing thing

Today
we received
the gift of breath
like the past each day
for that
we shall celebrate

When the day
it makes no return
we know
we have done
all we could to
appreciate
the breath of
life

and no one
can say
we are a failure
as
we lived our lives
to the fullness
of grace
