I look back over a bumpy road
A blackened sky
Learned a bit
Riding the bumps
Coming through the darkness
Seeking a few perfect moments
Giving thanks to the chaos for the gifts it brings.

Emotions can be a nuisance
But its nice when the work is done.

I remember
There are no perfect lives
Only perfect moments.

~ Catherine Fenwick

This is one of the poems i shared with my mom on one of her Mother's Day many years ago. She kept the card till she passed on. Now she is still keeping the card with her... in her new home.

When we get past the grieving period over our loved ones, it is good to remember the perfect moments. Especially on anniversaries, i would only like to celebrate her life and remember the happy times.

Remember not to look for perfect lives. We are all never will ever be perfect. We are born with flaws. The flaws are what make us all unique in our own ways.

Goodnite folks :) TGIF... YehooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOoooo

This poetry reminds me of one of my poetry collection from : "World Poetry - An Anthology of Verse From Atiquity To Our Time" :)

and i would like to dedicate this simple poetry by William Blake (1757-1827),page 699, to Anny and to all bloggers yg singgah blog Anny sini ;)


MORNING

To find the Western Path
Right thro' the Gates of Wrath
I urge my way;
Sweet Mercy leads me on:
With soft repentant moan
I see the break of day.

The war of swords & spears
Melted by dewy tears
Exhales on high;
The Sun is freed from fears
And with soft grateful tears
Ascends the sky.
