Cheer up, my friend

Cheer up, my friend!
Even if now you are alone,
We may meet in the end.

But now, stand,
You are a winner,
Do understand.

There is time to be sad,
But believe in yourself,
Things are not very bad.

He who searches, will find.
God is with you!
Cheer up, my friend, you are so kind!

Любий друже, посміхнись

Johnson_Lake
Любий друже, посміхнись,
Вір, все буде ок!
На світ ширше дивись,
Швидко ті́кає клок.

Яка мета, яка ціль?
Вставай, іди до мети!
Май смак як має сіль,
Щоб світло світу піднести!

Be friend to God

Be slave to God and not to men.
Fear God on all your ways.
Be not afraid of people now or then.
May God prolong your days!

May they be filled with health and joy!
Fear God and not men to achieve your goal:
You have a smart head, employ!
Keep straight your back and sound your soul!

Life is new

Canada_goose_Branta_canadensis_(4)
Life is new,
Life is fresh,
Life is undescribable!

Every morning brings new life,
I wake up and live anew.
I am brave to face a strife,
I am glad to see the dew.

One morning -> one more hope,
I am so lucky to live,
Friendship and love are in scope,
We will win, I believe.

Thank You Father for life!

Don’t be afraid of making a repairable mistake

Don’t be afraid of making a repairable mistake:
To take a university course, to meet a friend, to buy a car of a wrong make…
You will sincerely apologize, you will earn that extra dime.
The thing is you thought you have time.
