A Brief, Encouraging Note


It surely was a hard time
For you to have to say 'goodbye'!
Did she really care about your plans,
Your talks, your efforts, your dreams?
Tell us what happened, honey, and why?
Try and overcome it by all means.
Keep your faith, live your days wisely,
Face your plight,
And things will certainly end up
Getting right!

    And Dear Maria,
    Don't you think you mean to say
    ' Don't loose your hopes(Keep your faith, live your days wisely) ,
    Just bear (face your plight) '........?
    How nice that what I say in my 'Time's the best healer' you say it here!
    Truly, my effort was to write an encouraging note only to transmit the necessary courage during adversity.
    Your placement is so soothing!
    I'm sure this will surely bring some solace to the broken hearts.
    10+ for this nice work. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
