Life changes in every second
We never know what will happen
We smile
We cry
We win
We lose
It turn around so quickly
That’s why life is a subtly puzzle…
Strong wind or friendly breeze
Hard rain and little drizzles
Burning rays of sun or cool moonlight
Add so much wonder to our life
We come
We go
We arrived
And we departure from the world
In this little we live
Amidst Birth and Death.

poem about life


The Roller Coaster Life

We are just in a whole crazy,
Perplexing roller coaster ride;
When we have problems,
We are at the downside.
But sure, the time will come
When with the sky we’ll collide;
Where the good feelings came
And the pain will all subside.
So when the time comes
 you are going to fall;
You should always know
That He’s the one to call.
Eventually, you’ll soar up;
The wheels will start to roll;
‘Till you reach the peak,
and You’ll be standing tall.

poem about life



I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
– Walt Whitman ( From song of myself )

poem about life


We sometimes get so busy
That we may not make a fuss
About the ones we care for
And who mean so much to us.
But
You can be sure you’re thought about
And loved a whole lot too.
Because there could never be
Anyone more dear than you.

poem about life


Not Perfect

Don’t let the vague darkness give blindness in your eyes;
Let your heart illuminates both the beauty and the lies.
You won’t last in this life not reading between the lines;
And getting conquered with pain,
With all those hurtful cries.
The life ain’t perfect,
In mind, a thought to keep;
There are times you’ll have no choice
But to pray wind your hands leaped.
Be prepared for surprises for events may quickly flip;
Or else you’ll lose your grip and far away you’ll slip.

poem about life


Life Is Precious

The gracefulness
of a butterfly,
how gentle,
and fragile they seem.
Gently fluttering,
on a calm summers day,
floating like,
a dream.
But sadly,
their time is over,
Hardly before it’s begun.
So enjoy
your special moments,
like a butterfly,
in the sun.

short poem about life


The Stream of Life

Life… the essence of living
to breathe, to nourish, to create,
to exist on a common plain
and known no difference.

What if the world was this simple?
That the greatest life achievement,
The richest reward one could give
was to reap and bestow love.
The water falls from the skies,
nourishes the land, the living growth,
creates a stream…creates life.
We bathe in its glory,
we shelter from its harshness,
and sweeten our lips with delight.
We taste of love in the same manner
why do we not dance to the tune so simple
and seek for nothing else?

short poems about life

Past, Present, Future

Our past we can’t recapture.
It’s over and it’s done.
No way to recover time;
All those days are gone.
No amount of coloring
painting with bright hue
can change the way things happened.
No way to make it true.
No use fretting over
Regretting bygone days
No need to get entangled
In memory’s purple haze.
Or caught up in unraveling
( or, of hoping we could do )
things that didn’t go the way
that we would want them to.
The future is uncertain
No way for us to see,
the things that tomorrow’s holding,
for you or for me!
NOW is what’s obtainable,
just moments here to share.
The future comes so quickly –
unseen but waiting there.
Seize the present moments.
Grab all we can contain!
Our future are elusive.
Our past we cannot chain!

short poems about life



I really want to share
All the feelings my soul does bear
I’ve forgotten how life was before
I met you the man I adore
I love you so
You set my heart aglow

I’ve opened up my heart
To give you a big part
I am burning with fire
For you I so desire
It is with you I want to lay
Each and everyday

To be with you
Is like a dream come true
You are my life forever
And I shall endeavor
To make you as happy as can be
For that would mean so much to me

You are always there
When life becomes hard to bear
When I’m feeling sad
And feeling quite bad
You spend your time
Sending me a cherry rhyme

When I shed tears
And show my fears
You are my rock upon which I lean
As the fears pass by unseen
You hold me in your tender touch
I love you so much!

short poems about life



I can feel you in my heart
You have settled in my soul
We may be far apart
But love has taken a hold

Your arms are still around me
Our lips joined as one
I look around to see
That you really have gone

I still treasure the moment
When you declared your love for me
The days before you went
Were the best they could ever be.

short poems about life



My life has been balanced, with pleasures and trials,
I’ve had many teardrops, and thousand of smile.

I’ve soared to the moon, and I’ve plunged to the sand,
My life has been balanced, by God’s loving hand.

I’ve had many friendships, I’ve had a few foes.
In the life of Christian, that’s just the way that it goes.

Should I simply accept, only good from God’s hands?
No, I must endure it all, whatever He plans.

But of one thing I can be certain, and you can be too.
All things work out for the best, as God deals with you.

short poems about life



Raindrops are falling down
those will vanish to somewhere
but I am waiting…
until that drizzle come again.

Jesmines have died
lily blossoms have gone
but I am waiting…
till next summer
to see those expecting.

Heart feels immense lonely
since you have left me
but I won’t shed tears
I am waiting…
until you come to my life.

poem about life



My love for you
is so deep
when we are apart
my heart does weep

My greatest gift
was given to me
the day I met you
it was meant to be

You stole my heart
filled it with love
we belong together
like a hand in glove

I want to curl up in your arms
as we drift off to sleep
I will always be here to you
my love is yours to keep

To be hugged and kissed
held tight by you
to be told I am loved
is like a dream come true

I pray so hard
that my dream will never end
if that ever happened
my heart would never mend

You are my life
I love you so much
I feel so safe within your tender touch.

poem about life



What makes life worth living
is knowing that one day you’ll wake up
and find the person
that makes you happier than anything
in the whole world.
So don’t ever lose hope and give up
everything turns out okay and
the good guy always wins.

poem about life



Why God gave us friends

God knew that everyone needs
Companionship and cheer,
He knew that people need someone
Whose thoughts are always near.

He knew they need someone kind
To lend a helping hand.
Someone to gladly take the time
To care and understand.

God knew that we all need someone
To share each happy day,
To be a source of courage
When troubled come our way.

Someone to be true to us,
Whether near or far apart.
Someone whose love we’ll always
Hold and treasure in our hearts.

That’s why God gave us friends.

poem about life



I’ve searched my soul but hard as I’ve tried
I find my religion is ‘ unclassified ‘
I believe in nature and laughter and love
And goodness and mercy and a God up above.
The sun and the rain and the winds that blow
And a hundred earthy things that I know
But I don’t fit in, in a civilized way
To the rules and the customs that people say.
My heaven’s on earth; it’s a thing that I share
With the whole human race – I really care.
And when I am gone and just ashes remain
I’ll be part of the earth and the wind and the rain
It’s my ‘ everlasting ‘ – it seems right to me
It’s the big scheme of life, it’s the way it should be.
Life has been good and I don’t fear the night
It’s part of God’s plan and I know it’s all right.

poem about life



I’ve been walked on, used and
Forgotten and I don’t regret one
Moment of it, because in those
Moments I’ve learned a lot.
I’ve learned who I can trust and can’t.
I’ve learned the meaning of friendship
I’ve learned how to tell
When people are lying and
When they are sincere.
I’ve learned how to be myself,
and appreciate the truly great people
in my life
as they arrive.

poem about life



Think about life and all it means.
It’s about faith and following your dreams.
Happiness comes in every kiss,
Of life and love,
And sweet, pure bliss,
giving us something to thing of.
Remember those days when you were a child
The world was a better place and never changed,
There was love in every smile,
And plans were never rearranged.
So you’re a kid and one day you’re an adult.
That doesn’t mean that there’s nothing beautiful left to see.
The facts of life aren’t your fault,
And life can be anything you want it to be.
In the circle of life there can be hard choices,
Just remember your dreams,
And remember loving voices,
Maybe then you’ll see life isn’t always what it seems.
It’s not the torture of sorrow,
That comes with every day,
It is a joy of a new tomorrow,
And the happiness that will come to stay.
Think about life and all it means,
It’s about faith and following your dreams.

poem about life



Recipe For Life

A small white house
In a quiet town;
A talk with the pastor
When he comes around;
Kids –lots of kids —
Running in and out;
Teaching those kids
What life’s about;
A garden is back
With a winding path;
Saturday night —
The kids’ bath;
Maybe a dog,
A cat or bird;
The family Bible
With the Good Lord’s word;
And with these things,
All heaven sent,
My life will be full
I’ll be content.

poem about life



The Wildflower Rose

Blossoming from the hear of Asia
A baseborn epidemic took root.

Hybridity gave them eternal bloom
A high-maintenance delicacy to defend.

And basterdized petals, unrivaled
By our piquant fragrance.

We will not be forgotten
By you, oh gullible gardener.

Thick and tangled with purpose
We thrive naturally. Regardless.

Perhaps even in spite of
your praying stare, gloved hands.

poem about life



My puzzle is almost finished
But there’s still one more piece
I can almost see the beautiful picture
But I’m missing the heart of it all.

I’m looking for the last piece
While you’re hoping to fit in
You search high and low, day and night
Wondering if he will come to save you.

Don’t cry anymore, he is waiting for you
Don’t waste your tears, he is here
Don’t ever weep again, he knows just where you belong
Don’t worry, you’ve been in the picture all along.

I’m looking for you, you are looking for me
How much longer are we going to stare?
In case you haven’t figured it out yet
You are the last piece of the puzzle.

inspirational poems about life



Life is a piece of bubble gum.
It starts off fresh and juicy, with plenty of zip
and gallons of give, and a million bubbles just
waiting to be popped!
But then, the taste goes sour and turns to glue
It sticks to your teeth and tightens your jaws
And only thing to do is toss it in the trash.


Life is a sleek cat with padded paws
I scratch his neck and he purrs loudly
Playfully he roles over on his back
And I tickle his stomach.
He pretends to fight my hand, and I laugh
Suddenly his claws reach out and slash my fingers.
His teeth rip my flesh
He turns and darts away
And leaves me wondering.

inspirational poems about life



You asked if I’d give us a chance,
But this love could not be

Although my heart was calling out,
You were not right for me.

Perhaps another time or place,
Perhaps another world

But in this life, where we are now,
I cannot be your girl.

I’d love to know what I’ve had felt
If I’d let you inside

And I’d love to know where we’d have been,
If only we had tried.

inspirational poems about life



Be thankful that you don’t already have
everything you desire. If you did, what would
there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitation, because they
give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you are tired and weary,
Because it means you have made a difference.
It’s easy to be thankful for the good things
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
Also thankful for the set backs.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
And they can become your blessings.

inspirational poems about life



Have you ever driven down a road?
Just to drive with no destination in mind.
The road seems to go on and on
With no stopping point.
Life is like that long road going on and on
not knowing when it’s going to end.

But still you strive for another tomorrow
Hoping that in the long run
Everything will turn out alright
Just like the road though
It must come to an end.
