Somebody

Somebody came into my dreams,
And left a thousand memories.
Somebody became mine,
And left me the waiting.
Somebody is far from me today,
But very close to my heart.
Somebody became a stranger to me,
But left me the Love of a thousand years.

Now the morning beauty is gone,
And the night of loneliness begins.

Somebody got close to me,
And my life completely changed.
Somebody left me to the bitter seasons,
And left me the memories of spring.
Somebody made promises to me,
And left me with a broken heart.

Somebody came into my dreams,
And left a thousand memories.

If you are wondering who was it?
Who Am I to Say?
But who am I to say?
That somebody was you

Life's Hard

Life's hard to live and still people make it harder to live. Just living for
right takes so much, that I wonder how people have time to do wrong, foolish
things, to make life more complicated.

Everyday is a duty, one hundred things to do and think of, you have your
family, your friends, your work, your home, your God, all to tend to in
twenty four hours. You oversee cooking, cleaning, clothing. You have your
daily prayer schedule or temple to go to, you have the needs of father,
Mother, Brother, Sister, Children to tend to. No one day is like the other,
many of the surprises are unwelcome.

We live each day working hard not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We have
a life to live and to live it righteously takes a lot, each day. Morning to
night is gone in no time. There is money to manage and just when you have
managed to save the rare bit something unexpected comes along and you have
to give it away.

You pay for your health, eat right, live right, spend to be healthy and then
unexpectedly something small, something stupid comes up and big money goes,
your days go. your whole schedule goes. Life is so unexpected. You just
about have time to be with the ones you love and you live in that fragile
stage because you never know when the ones you love will go. We are busy
living hard lives and we don't have choice but to live it.

And so far I have just dealt with the external requirements our Life
demands. There are more important ones - the internal needs. We have so
much to deal with everyday. Life by the time you are thirty is packed.

Disappointments, sad memories, regrets, past issues, people who went away,
something is always on your mind. something is always tugging at our heart
strings. We have to clear our old deeds of another life-time and we have to
make sure we succeed in this because it is the main reason of our lives, we
have to undo all the wrong we have done in this lifetime because then we
never knew better, we have to come to terms with certain things of our life,
let go of other things, we have to make peace with the war, we have to end
wars and we have to live with us, the us that no one knows.

Life can be so difficult, it is for almost all. Yet we are blessed to able
to go on for without the Blessing of God and His kingdom could we manage any
of this? We have no control over our lives yet we live it., we have no
weapons against diseases yet we go on not thinking about it, we have the old
to take care of, the ill to look after, the additional difficult new twists
and turns to manage our daily life. suddenly there can be a major change,
suddenly there can be a major illness, suddenly there can be a death and it
has happened to many. But we continue to live on. For, to live on
righteously is all we are called to do.

Which is why I wonder how those who are not like us manage to live the
reckless and careless lives? yes Life is struggle , hardship, sweat, work,
and everything you don't want to hear. this is Life and sooner we accept it,
the better.

Life is difficult, our loved ones do fall ill, they will die someday, money
is a hassle, everyday living does make demands, anything happens anytime, we
don't know anything. And the unnecessary trouble human add to our journey:
deceptions, greed, backbiting, manipulations, hurt. What can we do??

Nothing, move away from what we can move away from and continue no matter
what the distractions and disturbances to live righteously the way we have
committed to. It is a tough road but it id our road.

We don't want it easy, we only want goodness, honor, decency, the ability to
fulfill our duties, claim our soul's belongings, love who we love, live
small, live well, live honestly. We have many like us on this path, they've
made it, we will too. We have a duty towards Life and never mind the
millions who make it easy by taking the unrighteous path, we will live here.

In my book of Life, really no matter what the difficulty, there is no other
way to live Life than to live it with dignity and duty, Because that's what
then makes it our Life.



 
What kind of Friendship this is?

Often when I am alone I think about u friend,
I always wish to share all my happiness and sadness,
But don’t know why my heart says NO
I share indirectly with u but what to do u just feel sad and have no
solution.

I always think of making people happy and keep them far away from problems
Helping others I fall in problem but who cares?
I have to think of a solution all alone.
And to show happiness in my face I keep my problems deep inside my heart.

Who cares whether I am under the shadow of god or devil,
True friends also sometimes don’t tell what I am doing - Is it right or
wrong?
I am of my own and my problems are not for sharing,
I always leave it in the hand of the god, and I am sure that my problems
will be
Solved when it’s in His hands



 
SHADOWS OF SILENCE

Shadows of silence sneak into my path,
Stirring and tugging at the strings of my heart.

Ringing the old memories so sweet,
Touching the chords of my heartbeats.

Shadows of silence engulf my soul
Whispering into my ears many words untold,

Me feels its Beauty as I behold
Ladden in jewels and wrapped in Gold.

Glimpses of old times spent together they bring,
Tears of happiness and bells of sadness they ring.

Shadows of silence preach and so they say,
Silence is a friend that never betrays.

Shadows of silence are a true friend of mine,
The old the sweeter, just like red wine
( not a transperent one :-) )
-Sandy
As silent as can be N as assailant as a bee :-)



 
The Mouse Trap Story


A mouse looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife
opening a package; what food might it contain?

He was aghast to discover that it was a mouse trap!

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning, "There is a
mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in the house."

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr.
Mouse, I can tell you this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no
consequence to me; I cannot be bothered by it."

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, "There is a mouse trap in the
house."

"I am so very sorry Mr. Mouse," sympathized the pig, "but there is nothing
I can do about it but pray; be assured that you are in my prayers."

The mouse turned to the cow, who replied, "Like wow, Mr. Mouse, a mouse
trap; am I in grave danger, Duh?"

So the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected to face the
farmer's mouse trap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house, like the sound of a
mouse trap catching its prey. The farmer's wife rushed to see what was
caught.

In the darkness, she did not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the
trap had caught.

The snake bit the farmer's wife.

The farmer rushed her to the hospital.

She returned home with a fever. Now everyone knows you treat a fever with
fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the
soup's main ingredient.

His wife's sickness continued so that friends and neighbors came to sit with
her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

The farmer's wife did not get well, in fact, she died, and so many people
came for her funeral the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide meat for
all of them to eat.

So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think that it
does not concern you, remember that when the least of us is threatened, we
are all at risk.

And so it may be with any one of us ...............

2nd Chance

When we went out all things were right
and everything was fine
then we broke up and I cried so hard
cause you were no longer mine

You said you needed time and space
so I was like "okay"
I stood around & waited
as we drifted farther away

I thought that we would reunite
but I geuss that you did not
so I got close to giveing up
to let go is what i've been taught

...but then one day you changed your mind
and finally came around
I guess you finally realized
just what you had found (LoL)

I didn't want to start again
I didn't want to cry
to go through another break-up like that
...I think I'd rather die

I finally took my chances
because I knew we'd make it last
and now we are together
...no matter whats in our past

We've gotten through the hard times
and gotten through the pain
we've been dating for a month now
and there's so much in it for me to gain

I'm so glad that we're together
and we made it through the past
I know this time it feels so right
I know we'll make it last!
