% Pause A Moment

Pause a moment
In your busy life
And see what life
Has to offer in this drive

And wish that never
The shadow of pain
Touch you ever
To stop your gain

For life has pretty
And splendid sights
You just need to follow
The bright light

Of happiness that is hidden
Behind the silver clouds
Where fog and mist
Can also create doubts

Just remember my dear
That life is a beautiful gift
That has so much to offer
To give a powerful lift

To your soul and heart
And show you how to enjoy
This pretty life's sight
And absorb in its joy

And pause a beautiful moment
Of your precious life
And learn how to chase
Happiness hue that survive.

*Dedicated to my husband, Sunny*

    As you have correctly said, to be born as a human being is a rare thing in this world. God gave us the sixth sense to think and act. We should be grateful to the Almighty for that. You are going highly spiritual and philosophical day by day. You are a realized soul, in fact, as your line thinking about life is something quite different from the other ordinary souls.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
