If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking,

Rating: 4.8
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

This poem made me think of Mother Teresa. She spent her life serving God and helping the poor.

De-a? opri sa se frânga o inima, N-a? trai în van; Dac-a? putea unei vie?i Durerea sa-i u?urez, Sau sa i-o îndepartez, Ori s-ajut o mierla Sa-?i gaseasca cuibu-i, N-a? trai în van. -traducere de Catalina Franco-
