A Tear And A Smile

Mihran Kalaydjian – A Tear And A Smile – Poem by Khalil Gibran

 

I would not exchange the sorrows of my heart
For the joys of the multitude.
And I would not have the tears that sadness makes
To flow from my every part turn into laughter.

I would that my life remain a tear and a smile.

A tear to purify my heart and give me understanding
Of life’s secrets and hidden things.
A smile to draw me nigh to the sons of my kind and
To be a symbol of my glorification of the gods.

A tear to unite me with those of broken heart;
A smile to be a sign of my joy in existence.

I would rather that I died in yearning and longing than that I live Weary and despairing.

I want the hunger for love and beauty to be in the
Depths of my spirit,for I have seen those who are
Satisfied the most wretched of people.
I have heard the sigh of those in yearning and Longing, and it is sweeter than the sweetest melody.

With evening’s coming the flower folds her petals
And sleeps, embracingher longing.
At morning’s approach she opens her lips to meet
The sun’s kiss.

The life of a flower is longing and fulfilment.
A tear and a smile.

The waters of the sea become vapor and rise and come
Together and area cloud.

And the cloud floats above the hills and valleys
Until it meets the gentle breeze, then falls weeping
To the fields and joins with brooks and rivers to Return to the sea, its home.

The life of clouds is a parting and a meeting.
A tear and a smile.

And so does the spirit become separated from
The greater spirit to move in the world of matter
And pass as a cloud over the mountain of sorrow
And the plains of joy to meet the breeze of death
And return whence it came.

To the ocean of Love and Beauty—-to God.

I’LL Love You Forever I promise you – [Michael Bolton]

I’LL Love You Forever I promise you- Michael Bolton

 

I will promise you, yes I promise to
Love you for all your life
Love you every day and night
I will always be there for you
I’ll be in your arms, you’ll be in my heart

I’ll love you forever, I promise you
We’ll be together, our whole life through
There’s nothin’ that I, I wouldn’t do
With all of my heart, I promise you

I will take your hand, and I’ll understand
Share all your hopes and dreams
Show you what love can mean
Whenever life just gets too much for you
I’ll be on your side, to dry the tears you cry

Oh I will always be in your arms
And you will always be the flame
within my heart

There’s nothin’ in this world I wouldn’t do
I promise you

I didn’t know happiness
until I had you two,
to have something so perfect
so small, so delicate and true.

The pleasure you bring into my life
I cannot express enough
The cuddles, kisses, the looks you give,
are filled with utmost love.

Your personalities are so different
yet at times you are the same,
your innocence and laughter
enforces that my aim..
is to give your lives full of meaning
to live for every day,
and to know i’m so proud of both of you
in each and every way.

I know you both resent me,
for the life we left behind,
but mum was very unhappy,
and herself she had to find.

We’ve had our trials and tribulations
our problems that some our way,
but remember mum is here for you
every second, come what may.

They say love is unconditional
between children and their mother
experiencing parenthood is such a gift,
this love is like no other

This poem is for my children
whom I love with all my soul,
my existence belongs to you two,
and through you, my life is whole.

To the Children

 

To you, the children…may you grow wise and strong–strong of heart.

With clarity and purpose may you learn well to care for her on whose back you walk…Mother Earth.

Even now, it is we who learn from you, as we watch you grow.
You forgive so quickly, and you love so unconditionally.

The light of spirit shines so brightly within you.

May you cultivate these things as you grow to become the leaders of tomorrow.

May you learn to live in harmony with one another, that your world may be a world of peace.

So I will not hurt
My heart was filled with bitterness
Here I leave you.
And I do not know, where are you going?
I doubt shivering
May God protected you.

I doubt shivering
May God protected you.

Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration

Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration

And Theory hour
‘Do not forget to pray
Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration

Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration

Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration Ah, sad life without you
Day of the year will be
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration
But wherever you are, my soul again
Look around to vibration

IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO

IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO LYRICS

 

imagesCAJT32YE

it takes two to tango

you tell me that he really hurt you
hurt you, oh, so bad
you wonder how he could desert you
god, he made you mad
were you nothing but a victim
did you never have a choice
it takes two to tango
didn’t you wear familiar clothes
the ones you wear so well
didn’t you blush just like a rose
on your way to hell
were you nothing but a victim
did you never have a choice
it takes two to tango
were you nothing but a victim
did you never have a choice
it takes two to tango
weren’t you once head over heels
weren’t you, oh, so sure
if she’s to blame for how you feel
who will be the cure
were you nothing but a victim
did you never have a choice
oh, it takes two to tango
hey, now, even if your arm was twisted
what happened to your voice
oh, it takes two to tango

TO MY FATHER –

Dear Dad,

 

My Dad

 

 

What a day!? A day to remember who has taught me, guided me and instilled wisdom in me my entire life. You have promised countless times that you love me. Can I ask for anything else? Of course I can, and I always do. As any good father would do, you do what you feel is right in whether or not I should get what I ask for.

There are so many things I’d like to tell you face to face. I either lack the words or fail to find the time or place. But in this special letter, Dad, you’ll find, at least in part, the feelings that the passing years have left in my heart. The memories of childhood days and all that you have done to make our home a happy place and growing up such fun.

I can still recall the walks we took, the games we played; those confidential chats we had while resting in the shade. This letter comes to thank you Dad, for needed words of praise; the counsel and the guidance, too, that shaped my growing-up days. No words of mine can tell you, Dad, the things I really feel; but you must know my love for you is lasting, warm, and real.

You made my world a better place and, through the coming years, I’ll keep these precious memories as cherished souvenirs.
