A Crack of Forgiveness (poem)

Open up your forgiveness

A Crack of Forgiveness

A crack of forgiveness,
Just a glimpse shining through.
A chance to readdress,
The pain living within you.

A chance to open up,
Unlock forgiveness’s door.
Retrieve forgiveness cup,
And hand it out once more.

A chance to bring healing,
To find where anger ends.
To once more start feeling,
That you can become friends.

A crack of forgiveness,
Can become a new sun.
Shining with hopefulness,
Against pain, you have won!

Please be at peace with me, my friend (poem)

Let’s become friends

Please be at peace with me, my friend

Please be at peace with me, my friend,
Even though strangers we may be.
Let our anger come to an end,
Let us set our harmony free.

Please come and sit with me, just here,
Let us spend time with each other.
Do not be afraid to come near,
Come, let us greet one another.

Please accept my hand of friendship,
Through the confusion of today.
From the cup of peace, let us sip,
Let our promises find a way.

Please talk to me about your ways,
Let me learn about how you live.
Let us talk of happier days,
With each other, learn to forgive.

Please now walk with me, by my side,
Let us find our way together.
Let understanding be our guide,
Let our peace remain forever.

Am I a stranger or a friend? (poem)


Let friendship bring understanding into a world of differences.  

Am I a stranger or a friend?

I may have walked a different path, taken a different way,
I may have led a different life and seen a different day.
I may not have learnt with you, to see what you can be,
But does that make a difference between you and me?
So now I will ask of you, as this day comes to an end,
Just how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

Perhaps if I had known your way, had seen it long ago,
And decided that it was not for me, choosing not to know.
Then you could be right to say, that I am not like you,
To turn your face away from me and keep me out of view.
But I did not learn on your road, nor walk round a single bend,
So how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

I understand just what you say, I would like to know you more,
Perhaps if you would sit with me, there’s a seat just by the door.
Let me know of your life and I will tell you about my own,
Then after a day or two, our understanding will have grown.
Learn how to heal our wounds, to know where to stitch and mend,
And then, over time, change from a stranger into a friend.

A Peaceful Friend (poem)


Friends are invaluable in life.

A Peaceful Friend

There is pleasure in the company of friends
Who can sit peacefully with me by my side,
Who can accept silence when the talking ends,
And in noisy places, we will never abide.

That a conversation will be of interest,
On topics that have meaning to you and me,
And afterwards we will have time to digest,
The ideas that our talking have set free.

That busyness will be just for a while,
Confined to those things we wanted to do.
So that afterwards, we can share a smile,
And let the peace of our friendship come through.

You are my sister, you are my brother (poem)


A message of unity for the world.
pond dipping 1 - web


You are my sister, you are my brother

You are my sister, to one family we belong,
You are my brother, and together we are strong.
We are the keepers, we have one world for which to care,
We are the lovers, we have one life we can all share.

Tomorrow will come, we need to seek out the right path,
Tomorrow is ours if, instead of tears, we learn to laugh.
One life we all have, with it we can learn to forgive,
One earth we all know, and the only world where we live.

We have just one chance, to give our children a tomorrow,
We have just one life, to bring happiness and not sorrow.
Will we let it all end? A world where nothing is alive,
Or will we become friends? So this precious world can survive.
