Dance on shattered glass, you must!

Dance on shattered glass, you must!
Walk through those flames of fire.

Fly, you must, fly high as an eagle,
Dream, yes, your wildest dreams.

Think deep like the wisest scholars,
Smile, joyfully, your most beaming smile.

Eat cheesecake, aye, the pure white fantasy,
Walk tall, chin up, with head held high.

Run fast as the wind, free and unshackled,
Speak words of wisdom, purity and gentleness.

Observe with kindness, understanding and compassion,
Climb, you must, the peak of perfection and punctuality.

Waltz, tango, salsa through life,
Enjoy every moment.
Savour each experience,
Be grateful for adversities.

Hardships make you strong, wise and..
Sincerely grateful for all blessings, great and small.

Therefore, thank the good Lord, with all your heart,
He’s blessed you richly, and you must play your part;
Live well, with gratitude, humility and zestful fun,
Start today! For tomorrow is promised to no one.

Till we meet again, sweet Brother

❤️ Darling Brother M.K.A ❤️

❤️ Darling Brother M.K.A ❤️

My beloved baby brother suddenly passed,
My heart weeps, my mind’s awry, no words that I can say..
Can ever take the pain away, O God..
Grant me peace, calm my restless soul.
….
My lashes rest upon my cheeks, my palms are raised and my prayers begin.
….
Aye, the tempest has lulled a bit, the cries and tears have lessened
Let Your blessed balm comfort me, O Lord …
As I embrace the beauty and goodness
Of my sweet brother’s soul.
Loved by all, his grace, his humility and deep compassion
Are now celebrated on earth by everyone.
Rest in peace, dear heart, till we meet again
Perhaps today, tomorrow … for only He knows.

 

Dear God, we thank You for the beautiful angel You gave to us, to be a part of our family. Oh, how we loved, respected and appreciated him – never forgetting to tell him how proud we were of him – and he, my baby brother, always acknowledged our love for him….for he knew we loved him to bits!

We bow to Your Will, O Lord, and in great humility voice our deep gratitude for the oh-so precious, most cherished fifty-three years we enjoyed with MKA. Rest in eternal peace! Ameen Amen.

Down By The River

I’m sailing down the river

Delightful, yes I know…

The sun is shining brightly

And the gentle wind does blow.

My hair is all awry

Defiant curls tousle all about…

Methinks they protest, just a wee

But heck, those cares I toss straight out!

For I am to enjoy this sunny day

To smile away the frowns…

As today, I wish to think of Peace

And not, of my ups and downs.

I see the trees on either side

Green, lush, so full of life…

Swaying slowly, gently bowing

Thanking Him for giving life.

The sky is blue, light and clear

No dark clouds, no tempest seen…

Embrace the pleasures of this fine day

Its beauty… Ah, the splendour so serene!

The ripples on the river

Artistically, bob here and there…

As the boat sails on by slowly

Happily, bearing its precious ware.

Excited faces all around me

Grinning, from ear to ear…

Like me, they too, decided

To toss away their fears.

Today, we are grateful, most thankful,

“Oh, yes!”  we loudly say…

We thank You, Lord, with all our heart

For the blessing of this day!
