A Chance


A chance
God have given us
A life to cherish, a life to nourish
A chance to live to its fullest.

A chance to live
Live a beautiful life
With our own free will
But freewill to do good, not evil.

A chance to renew
When our soul is astray
Blinded with earthly desires
To be chaste again before we die.

A chance to love
Like a dandelion, help it grow
And in due time, let the wind blow
Let it be scattered like snow
Tender, fresh as morning dew.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
