The Breath Of Life - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

The Breath Of Life
To smell The Sun
to feel The Wind
to breathe the Fresh Air from within
to experience The Stormy Weather
to walk on Top Of The Ocean
to talk with The Highest Emotion
to live The Real Life
to know The Real Love
to say Good Morning to The Dove
those are Steps in The Breath of Life
those are Parts in The Breath of Our Life
we'd care for it with Gentle Love, no knife

    Smell of sun we get through beautiful sun-rays every day and sun brings colours in to life. We realize every breath in this Earth and every breath in life. We feel wind and its tender touch. Fresh air at morning revives our faith. We experience stormy weather and still we walk top of success. Walking top of ocean we realize self efforts. With highest emotion and reality we talk with God in silence. Gentle love nourishes breath of life. This is an interesting and outstanding composition shared here....10 (Report) Reply

    I just thanked your precious comments, but when I clicked to add my response (I clicked the SUBMIT button) I wonder: my response to your precious comment is gone. Is that WHY I seldom opened my Poem hunter.com? I don't know. BUT I have submitted that. Thank you so much Dr. Tony

    Thank you so much, mam. I am very happy to read your comment today. It's been long time since Poem hunter.com could keep my response for you here. Last time it was gone. I am wondering about the working of Poem hunter. com. I responded, but this site did not add my response for you, but most appreciated. I do hope PH adds this. God's Blessings in Abundance. Sincerely, Sylvia FC
