Love is all I have, it’s true

Love is all I have, it’s true.
Love is what helps me break through.
But what else does a person need,
Whatever is her or his honest breed?

Life is different for a loving heart,
Simple happiness is its part.
Spread shoulders and bright eyes…
Love is a dove that flies!

When I am in trouble, I pray

When I am in trouble, I pray
And then try to do all I can.
I can’t explain the bright ray
Which crosses the gloom and improves my plan.

That’s how we know God loves us all,
He hears each our call.
The Father and the Friend till the end of times,
It is beyond the rhymes…

His help is obvious and swift,
God helps us, it needs no seal.
Not unassisted, not by chance we get lift,
Let’s keep our hearts open to feel.

Your smile

Adventure-Clouds-Conifers-Daylight-350418
Smile and let your neighbour smile in return,
Let your smile help shine the way.
However much you need to learn,
Let your smile brighten the day!

Як сумно часом буває

Як сумно часом буває,
Чому успіх чужий комусь заважає?
Чи ми, люди, брати?
Чи не тому ми тут, щоб один одному допомогти?

Та дехто забуває,
Через дрібне головне зневажає.
Люди різні та є добро,
Назавжди переможе Воно.

Хай жорстокий розуміє,
Любові тепло синів-дочок зігріє.
Лагідні яскраво засяють.
Терпінням й добром вони перемагають.

You’re not alone, believe

You’re not alone, believe,
God is always with you!
Cheer up, it’s too early to leave,
You are right, you’re strong, it’s true!

Find your niche and go on;
Persistent thou should be,
And you’ll still admire the dawn
Enjoying the daylight brighter than you thought it could be.

We are together,
You are not alone.
Even in a rainy weather
God’s love will bring us together making stronger than a stone.

When you can, give

IMG_3635
When you can, give.
And you will be given.
Be gracious and thankful and live,
You never know where you will be driven.

What you have, do not hide,
Open your mind, be bright.
Let your life outlook be wide;
Keep your inner spark always in sight!

Share light

lake_agnes_banff_np_alberta_canada
Shine your way –
Hard or light –
Have courage to say:
“You are so bright!”

But saying is insufficient –
Believe if you want all to be efficient.
Be of good cheer!
Share the things that are dear!

I saw you in a bus

I saw you in a bus,
How pretty you were!
Another day of city fuss…
Both alone among those people in fur.

With bright, shining eyes you were standing;
It was cold outside.
In your eyes I saw understanding;
The world for me became wide.

I like the sound of your name

I like when you are around –
It’s like serotonin and vitamin D that abound.
Your eyes are of the most beautiful hue;
I like speaking with you.

You make hard things light:
Your ideas are effortless, bright.
I am your gent, you are my dame;
I like the sound of your name.

Let Christmas light up souls

14579228969_f221bf35a5_o
Let Christmas light up souls,
It’s time for a merry song!
All people are together just having their own roles.
Love will last forever and more and it isn’t long.

So, smile and join your hands
Forgive all you couldn’t before.
Your heart is longing to see new kind lands,
How much good your soul does store!

Christmas is coming,
What a bright Day!
Children are joyfully running,
All can come true for those who hopefully pray!

‘Merry Christmas!’, we say
And it is indeed!
On God our hopes we lay,
So, why to worry, there is no need!

What is my destination?

banff_springs_hotel_01
What is my destination?
That’s the question I should ask.
Have I mistaken my vocation?
Will I be able to solve the task?

I just live my short life
Trying to hope for the best,
It’s like a strife
And I should work with zest.

All the above is right,
But sometimes I feel wrong,
Now I know my belief should be bright
And also hope and love; and they all life-long.

Kindly smart

If it doesn’t stick, bud,
Use a tape around that part.
If a car has passed and got you in mud,
Take it easy, be kindly smart.

Remember to run –
This is to cover your winning mile.
Remember to enjoy fresh air, bright sun.
Remember to smile =)

Thank Thee, Heavenly Father

Thank Thee, Heavenly Father, for all:
For preventing from a fall,
For land and water, day and night,
For all Thy world which is so bright!

Thou gave me a precious gift – my life,
And Thy support is immense.
My house is rife;
In Thee I always find defence!

Thank Thee for loving hearts around.
How reviving is their sound!
Thank Thee for food –
For both, body and soul, it is good.

I know, just words are not sufficient,
But help to my negihbour, good deeds!
And Thou will make us proficient
And send all or even more a human being needs!

It’s easy to give up

It’s easy to give up
And not difficult to fall,
To stumble and to stop, to lose all.
But to go on, to make up…

It’s not shameful to misfire,
But it’s shameful not to get up.
Try, a bright ray will light up,
A clear dream will inspire.

Have faith in God

If you want to win, fight a peaceful fight
For your and your children’s future to be bright!
I know, this is hard,
But have faith in God and be en garde*!

Just a little more and the day of victory will come!
Be en garde, no need for rum,
Ahead, without despair, my friend!
You will enjoy victory in the end!

Have you every felt?

CAM00058
Have you ever felt really bad
When you’re all fingers and thumbs and look so sad?
I think you have, perhaps not once.
Perhaps you even asked God to help you not to lose your chance.

It’s very good when you believe;
This opens the door to wisdom which you receive.
Never forget to thank for what you’ve got.
Look at paupers, think carefully – you have a lot.

Have you ever had bright moments in life
When the sky is clear and you want to fife?..
Be thankful to score your goal!
Ask God to show the way and to save your soul.

Shine your way

Chickadee
Shine your way,
Do good things whatever they say!
Have salt in yourself and have light,
Make your chemin* bright!

Rely on God and go!
In terms of helping people are slow.
You are beautiful, strong, and smart.
With God’s help you will achieve all, just do your part!

* French for “way”.

I admire you

Flower
The only thing I want you to remember
After reading these lines:
You are awesome January through December!

You are worthy whatever they say/think
And I want you to stay healthy whether you like vegies or meat, grey colour or pink.

You are valuable, much more than gold.
Inside of you there is a chest of treasures the key to which you hold.

You are precious in God’s sight:
Your every hair is counted.
I admire you: your heart is pure and brave, your head is so bright!
