Tu n’es pas seul(e)

Tu n’es pas seul(e):
Dieu, Ses anges, Sa Mère, Ses Saints sont avec toi.
Même quand tu élèves un épagneul;
Quand tu perds et quand tu trouves chaque fois.

Tu n’es pas seul(e), ami(e)
Quand tu t’élèves, vas au lit, quand tu manges du brie…
Tu n’es jamais seul(e), rappelle-toi.
Souris, espère, inspire, aprécie, aperçois!

Christmas is coming

Bells are singing,
Wonderful tunes are ringing!
Smile, blessed you are!
Let your heart follow Jesus, our Star!

Christmas is coming, listen and look!
Everyone is going carol-singing, even a rook.
Give your neighbour a smile!
Be yourself, show your kind heart, your own style!

Your smile

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!

The night has passed

The night has passed,
The day has come
It’s time to act and fast.
No need to be glum.

A new day means a new life.
So, be ready,
Today you’ll have to face a strife.
Smile, be steady!

If something is wrong,
Work toward a change
Because you are strong,
And that is within your range.

Some moments you want to pass fast

Some moments you want to pass fast.
Black stripe, white stripe…
Some moments you do want to last,
But wait, do not wipe.

All sorts of things make up our life.
In all, it is so good
With every smile, every strife.
It is worth living I can conclude.

Be sorry about nothing:
One moment and the present is the past.
There is no use fussing.
Always ahead, your world is vast!

Show me just a little smile

Please do not be upset,
Show me just a little smile.
I know, we’ve never met,
But we’re on the same isle.

I’ve got a message for you:
Show me just a little smile.
Although far, you are close to me, it’s true,
So, you’re not alone; I like your kind style!

Любий друже, посміхнись

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!

Твоє Свято

Життя – великий дар,
Хай що, а ти йди!
Шкода, не може буть без хмар,
Але дощ – не назавжди́.

Твоя посмішка сяє кришталевою росою;
Щире серце знає шлях:
Божий Янгол завжди з тобою,
Навіть в далеких краях.

When you are sad

Jasper_Parkway_-_panoramio_-_Jack_Borno
When you are sad,
Take your time,
Get ready to be glad.
Make juice if you got a lime.

Remember to smile,
It helps with people.
They will appreciate your style.
You can make much even out of little.

Give thanks

Give thanks to the Lord in any season –
For this, you do not need a reason,
But even if it were so, think with how much you’ve been bestowed!
You’ve been forgiven all that you owed.

So, cheer up – you have a bright head!
You have an awesome stature.
Enough being sad, smile instead!
You love God and your neighbour,
You will certainly win with your kind nature!
You will thrive in your labour!

How wrong I was

How wrong I was.
All my problems come from within.
But now I see better the cause,
And the struggle is the way to win.

I thought that I had no luck.
Then I saw a disabled child
And realized where I got stuck.
I had all and was sad – in contrast, he smiled.

I say enough,
It’s never too late to mend!
My heart must be no longer rough
‘Cause God’s grace has no end.

So, should I complain
Or be ungrateful for a while?
Never! Isn’t it plain?
Thank Thee Father for the child’s smile!

Le ciel est bleu!

Le ciel est bleu!
Des oiseaux chantent!
Des arbres sont en fleurs parfumées.
Que peut être mieux?
C’est printemps, est-ce que tu sentes?

Les jours gris ont passé
Et ne sont pas près.
Jette, mon cher lecteur, ta tristesse et souris!
Merci, mais c’est pas assez:
Rappelles aussi que tu es bel(le) et bon(ne) et c’est vrai!

Time is sly indeed

Time is sly indeed,
It’s moving faster day after day.
Who knows what I need?
What shall I say?

Anyway, never stop rowing,
Keeping heart open;
Never being afraid of bestowing.
That is the only way in order not to feel broken.

What for to put off till tomorrow
A kind smile, a good deed?
Retardation leads to sorrow.
Time is sly indeed.

Let Christmas light up souls

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!

Baby, I am in love with your hair,
Your voice, your gaze, your smile;

I want to share all things with you.
You are the only one for me;
Your faith, your hope, your love are true;
With you I want to raise a family.

Sincere smile

dscn9457

Sincere smile, how much it means!
It is like bread and oil, beans
For a hungry soul.
For a fan it is a goal.

Just smile and improve the world around.
The birds are singing, what a sound!
The past is past, we live in the present.
Your smiling face is so pleasant!

Your smile is a cure for others,
It does support your brothers.
Be yourself, it is worthwhile.
How much it means, sincere smile!

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 =)

Be yourself whatever they say

Be yourself whatever they say,
Don’t be under anybody’s thumb.
They want you to go? How about you stay?
You’re strong without any rum.

It’s not easy, but try to smile
And don’t be afraid to display your knowledge –
That’ll help you to cover thousands of miles;
Be yourself at home, at work and at college.

Combien de temps faut-il pour t’oublier?

Combien de temps faut-il pour t’oublier?
Mes lèvres vont se taire, mais mon cœur veut crier.

On me disait “Assez!”, mes amis surtout,
Mais tu es ici et là, tu es partout.

Ton regard est calme, ton sourire guérit.
Pourquoi? Je n’ai pas encore compris.

Où es-tu? Que fais-tu?
Pardonne-moi pour être têtu…

Посміхнись

Посміхнись і посміхнеться все навкруги,
І розквітнуть по-новому поля і луги.
Знаю, нелегко та тримай впевнено ніс,
Лихо минеться, ти вже набагато більше зніс.

Посміхнись і хай там що, у вірі стій,
Скоро полегшення прийде і побачиш успіх свій.
А щоб впевнено йти, пам’ятай про любов,
Вона – вічне, а турботи пройдуть і не побачиш їх знов.

Easter

Easter is knocking at doors.
What a wonderful day!
We can open hearts’ stores!
It’s a day of love, of the hopeful ray!

Death will always lose.
It will never own.
Let a winning hymn make a cruise!
How high our song has flown!

Our prayers are heard!
You are not alone.
God takes care even of a bird!
Smile! Believe, you won’t knock against a stone.

Nonverbal

We like to see.
“Seeing is believing”
The proverb says to thee,
What nonverbals are we receiving?

Be smart to gesture
And kind to smile.
That’s a good communication texture,
Watch people for a while.

What you do is important

What you do is important really:
Your job, your studies, your family, and your sport;
The things for which you get paid and the ones you give freely.
Your kind deeds are your fort.

Every kind deed matters.
Not because of the one who flatters,
But because they improve the world around,
Because they evoke a smile and make happiness abound.

Never question a kind deed you do,
Stay faithful to what is true.
Good intentions may mislead.
So, keep it simple when you do your duty and a kind deed.

Be sure to fulfill your duty in work and studies.
Train to respect your time your party buddies.
Live simple life of faith every day.
Keep it simple and pray.

Une chose qui guérit

Il ne faut pas être triste,
Même si ça ne va pas.
On est un grand artiste,
La chagrin passera.

Mais il y a une condition,
Il est nécessaire qu’on soit sûr.
Et elle viendra, la solution,
On surmontera le mur.

Que ton sourire est beau!
Il guérira aussi le mal de ton ami.
Chacun peut être héros.
Pour commencer, souris!

When you feel right, smile,
Show your own free style.
Do not restrain your mood –
Your heart is kind, you look so good.

Only God knows what will happen tomorrow.
Happiness may change to sorrow.
But this is not the reason for crying,
You’d better keep trying!

You will have much success, I am sure,
You do have a chance to change the score.
Be yourself, no matter where you are;
God’s support is here, not far.

Ісус Христос народився

CAM00318
Ісус Христос народився,
У світ прийшов, як дитя з’явився.
Ісус Христос народився!

Син Божий як людина прийшов,
Від Отця Благий зійшов;
Для спасіння кожної людини,
Для щастя кожної родини!

Господеві нашому співаймо,
У вірі серця́ об’єднаймо.
Щоб Христос душу просвітив,
Щоб полум’я невір’я згасив.

Ісус Христос народився,
Як світла промінь у пітьмі з’явився.
І пастухи, і волхви
Свої дари принесли.

Отож щиро Бога прославляймо,
Спасіння сподіваючись співаймо!
Бо Христос – спасіння всім,
У кожну хату, кожен дім.

Просимо, хай Його ласка і щедроти
Будуть із вами вдома й на роботі,
Хай Христос дасть вашій родині
Хліба, здоров’я, прибуток, посмішку дитини!

Ісус Христос народився,
У світ прийшов, як дитя з’явився.
Ісус Христос народився!

There is time for all

There is time to work
And there is time to play;
Time to eat pork
And time to “vegetize” your tray.

There is time to cry
And there is time to smile;
Time to refrain and time to try;
To rest and to cover a mile.

The way you look tonight

You have been beautiful a million times,
But nothing can fully describe how you look tonight, not a hundred thousand rhymes.
Something in your attentive eyes
Remind how much luckier I am than all those other guys.

Something in the way you smile,
Something in the dress and make-up style;
Something in the way you step which is so light –
You look so good tonight!

Communicate

Your sacrifice can be communication
And be ready to offer it,
At work or at vacation,
It can help your neighbour out of a pit.

It can simply provoke a kind smile
And you’ll improve your neighbour’s mood.
Together or individually, you’ll cover a thoushand’s mile.
Communication makes your soul good.

Give me just a little smile

Give me just a little smile,
You have your own beautiful style.
Whatever it is, it will soon pass.
Cheer up, look at the greenness of grass.

You have an amazing head;
Not relying on force, you use it instead.
You are beautiful and strong in your way!
Be wise and harmless whatever they say!

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!

Love love

Love love and seek it at home, at work, and everywhere,
And it will yield its fruit you won’t know where.

As if you were covered with glue!

Love love and you will find!
If someone does not understand, never mind;
Smile and keep your way ahead.
May God’s love protect you from your feet to the head!
