Bernedita Rosinha Pinto Poems

Man moves with the wind assisting his respiration
hope moves man in finding his way and direction;
love keeps forgetting its existence and action
truth keeps circling the heart for its perception;

Life keeps moving on thro the doorway of time
sometimes ushering satisfaction and happiness
sometimes bringing trophies of pride and success
sometimes discarding friends who act as rivals

Never had this reflection
even in the deepest and lightest
of my imagination, ever occurred
that the name and memory

The exodus of the migrant workers
is so painful to see,
they had arrived in our towns and cities
to fulfill their daily needs of livelihood;

Christmas a time for joy and cheer
a time to rejoice the birth of Jesus;
making little mangers,
lighting up the Christmas trees,

Light up twenty one candles for us,
let every candle bear our name,
in every light of that candle
will glow our silenced dreams-

Let there be every reason to believe in tomorrow,
let there be every hope in the justice that you seek
let there be light in this darkness of time
but let there be a silent prayer upon your lips for George.

I have seen everything along my life's pathway
I have even seen the lightening and heard the roar of the thunder;
I have seen the mountains and fields everywhere on this earth
I have even seen the rivers and the lakes flowing along the valleys silently.

Ask for everything that love should give you
ask for everything that happiness should offer you
ask for everything that greatness should possess you
ask for everything that pride should dazzle you;

And as the last of the US Marines
walked out of Afghanistan
and got on to that plane
to get to his own homeland, alive,

Let there be no more of hatred
let there be no more of vengeance
let there be no foam of hostility
let there be no froth of anger;

Feel proud of yourself as you read my book
feel proud of me for writing those poems in a book for you;
feel proud that you are my friend in words
feel proud your eyes can read what I wrote;

I wish the earth could be as defiant as the moon
I wish it could not allow the moon to block the sunlight
I wish the darkness could not stand between for even an hour or less;

Under that Eiffel tower they stood
re-affirming their love for each other,
after marriage vows and wedding bells
by the Arc de Troimphe they drove,

The best always win
the better always convince
the good never give up;
he was born to be a President

Those cities, those roads
our ancestors have lived and walked,
our forefathers have saved those huge trees
which stand so tall,

No one wanted to let go of her,
she herself did not move from the hearts of people
but the greatness of time and life succumbs
in just one minute to a foe called death.

Temptation never keeps away
the taste of those who crave for it;
as she grew, many luxuries she had
and only a caution not to spin,

My son will be all that I wanted to be,
he will be a promoter of truth
an enhancer of peace;
he will be an eliminator of injustice

I have not asked the sunrise to show its brightness
and wake me up every morning when longer I would like to sleep;
I have not asked the clouds to hold droplets of water
and wet me with showers of rain in the monsoon winds.

The Best Poem Of Bernedita Rosinha Pinto

Aquarium Of Hope

Man moves with the wind assisting his respiration
hope moves man in finding his way and direction;
love keeps forgetting its existence and action
truth keeps circling the heart for its perception;

man plans and prays for momentum and motivation
but like a gold fish in an aquarium man feels isolation
when those whom he beckons lack redemption
and overturn their own jug of justice and rectification;

yet man keeps daring the future with determination
he overcomes all hurdles and storms with preparations;
and whether he wins or not the game of implementation
he never dissuades himself from his plans of objections;

he will run, he will chase until it is time for jubilation
and whether it is loss or gain, birth or burial as option,
man never fears to live, love or try new permutations;
for in the pursuit of victory there is never any limitation
when man is the gold fish swimming with noble inclination.

Hi Bernedita, Next week I am attending a fundraiser for a school charity in Nepal. The owner of the charity is a nepalese man who lives in Cairns, Australia. His brother was killed by the earthquake while taking some of the children to school. I thought I'd present a couple of poems and came across yours. I hope you don't mind that I use them. with deepest regards Owen Allen

" also due to Subash Chandra Bose …. who …. sought freedom by following the non-violent movement rather than choosing war" Subhash Chandra Bose had formed his army INA and fought against the British joining hands with the Japanese and German armies

Bernedita Rosinha Pinto Quotes

Serenity is a closed flower - the petals of which one must open peace by peace.


Like the bird, man flies on two wings- one is of thoughts, the other is of feelings. Thoughts must be righteous, feelings must be compassionate the two must be connected by the feathers of conscience.

The greatness of Truth gets brightened by admittance. Denial of truth is injustice to oneself.

Dedication is faithfulness. Dedication - a duty! Devotion is worship. Devotion - a religion! Discipline is self-virtue. Discipline- a character!

Grief is the only wound that never heals, even with time.

Every poem is a masterpiece of a poet as it is an art painted by words and verses.
