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.

It’s never too late

Moraine_Lake,_Alberta,_Jul_2017_03
It’s never too late,
Whatever you feel.
Go ahead, what for to wait?
Rust covers resting steel.

When everything seems to be lost,
Start from the beginning.
Still there is something which is beyond any cost…
The bell of life inside of you is ringing!

It’s never too late,
Just try!
What else to state?
Believe, wisdom makes people fly!

You’re at the fire-place

populus_tremuloides_foliage
You’re at the fire-place
And do not feel cold,
And you’ve got some stores just in case,
But don’t be bold.

Everything is in God’s power.
Do you remember paupers near your house?
They aren’t afraid of showers,
They believe though they’ve got as much as a mouse.

All you have is like a passing dream;
Even some paupers used to be rich.
Life is faster than a mountain stream –
While you can, help those who can’t do a hitch.

A kind smile can heal

A kind smile can heal,
More than that: it cures for sure.
People will smile back whatever they feel.
It’s true in space, underground, at sea, and ashore.

Good mood passes over to people around.
Even if they are unhappy, suppressed,
They hear the jolly sound
And bad mood disappears without rest.

So, try to smile at your neighbour.
Believe! You need no hesitation,
And he will help you back with your labour.
Language of good needs no translation!
