Count your blessings

I got this from a friend in my email. It really moved me and realized that I should be grateful with what I have. I hope this poem will also touch your heart the way it did to me

I’ve never made a fortune,
and it’s probably too late now.
But I don’t worry about that much,
I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way,
I’m reaping better than I sowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven’t got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going’s tough.
But I’ve got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He’s bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I’ll not ask for other blessings,
I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people
in this world have it worse than I do.
I realize just how blessed most of us really are.

Forget him

A true friend

知己良朋 Chinese version translated by nqph2004

We met upon the internet,
My heart you did not have yet.
I sit and wait each day,
for the song my heart will soon play.
Of laughter, love and tears,
You have washed away all my fears.
To be my friend and see so deep,
I now know why I don’t get much sleep.
I have waited through all these years,
To find something to hold so dear.
And now I know I’ll never be Blue,
For I have found a true friend in you.

Confession of Love

We came off to a fast start,
I never even thought we could go this far
But somehow, in some special way
Our love led us to a secret place…
A place only the two of us knows
But in that place… with you, I feel safe
I always find myself longing…
Longing to touch you and kiss you…
To talk with you, and laugh with you
To hold you… and just be with you
I just wish the whole world would see
I wish the whole world would know
But I guess they’d never understand
You touched my life in the most wonderful way
And I know I’ll never be the same again
Now my days are so much brighter
And my smiles hold more meaning
I started to feel all these different emotions
Even feelings that I’ve never felt before
And you brought them all to me…
Happiness, excitement, fear, pain, worry, even anger
Every emotion made me feel alive
And every emotion became a reason for me to keep on loving you
You came and taught me so many things
I never really understood love before, but now I do
Because you showed it to me in countless ways
And I will always be grateful for that
There are times when my thoughts get all tangled up
I’m faced with a lot of hopes, and what ifs,
Questions that don’t have answers,
And feelings that have no explanations
But in the midst of all these, I do love you
I really, truly, honestly, sincerely do love you
And my song will have no ending…
My love will only know forever…
Just like the song I first heard you sing,
And the first time you held my hand,
And the first time I felt your touch,
And the kiss that assured me what we have is special
I don’t need to understand everything…
I don’t need to make everything right…
All I need to do is look into your eyes…
And look inside me to know
Your love is all I need.
