AMONG THE CROWDED STARS...



When I stand before a valley

And if I am able to hear what God wants to say…

When I play with a little child

And if I am able to feel how hard my heart has grown…

When I move in the darkness

And if I am able to feel the longing for the light at the end…

When I read someone’s poem

And if I am able to feel the shadow of my own joy and sorrow in them…

When I thank some one

And if I am able to feel the strength of a mighty Hercules in my soul…

When I embrace someone

And if I am able to feel the throbbing of a blessed life…

When I say sorry

And if I am able to walk like a heavenly angel…

When I think about someone

And if I am able to feel I do not exist for a while…

When I feel angry on someone

And if I am still unable to feel any poison in my blood…

When I am jealous of someone,

And if I am still able to feel my place among God’s good children…

When I am happy

And if I am able to hold a thousand hearts in my feeble hands…

When I am helpless and in pain,

And if I am able to find my friend among the crowded stars in the sky…

Anjali,

I am glad u liked the poem. Life is a poem... Isn't it?

Many moods, many dimensions... many experiences! Yes, all that is needed is to be 'available'...

Life around us is very inspiring, Anjali.

Thanks,

Love, GERALD

"When i stand before our teacher And if am able to FEEL what they teach" Thank you sir...

Yes Girish, "When I stand before my teacher... and if I am able to FEEL what is being taught..."

Then, I can safely assume that my blog makes sense!

Thank u, dear.

Love, Sir
