Blessed The One

by

Emile Cheng


Blessed the friend who sticks with you
Whether times are good or bad.
Happy the man who has not a few
To comfort and console when he's sad.

A friend doesn't mind offering his shoulder
For you to lean your head and cry on,
To listen when you pour out your woes,
To pick you up when you're down.

With you he walks the extra mile
Though rough and difficult the way.
When all around seems dismal or vile
Hes your sunshine to brighten your day.

When you're in melancholy mood
A true friend lifts you up from gloom;
When you are hungry he shares his food;
For you in his heart there's ample room.

A loyal friend remembers you
Though you're gone faraway.
He's a comrade and ally true;
Your name he'll not detract or betray.

A faithful friend sincere and trusty,
Loves you - your warts, your faults, your flaws
Friendship unrequited wanes easily;
Nurtured it eases life's burdens and woes.

A poor life this if we've no friends;
Befriend and cherish your fellowmen;
Yellow black and white can blend;
Let love peace and friendship reign.


Blessed Blossoms

by

Emile Cheng


Dismal the world without bright blooms;
Stars to sky as florets to earth;
Wondrous mysterious marvelous blossoms;
Written in them are Divine truths

Woven from the Great One's loom;
These radiant delicate elegant flowers;
Unique a masterpiece each bloom,
Tinged with fragrance and subtle colors.

Scented and spectacular flowerets,
Please the eye appease the spirit;
Solace and joy from them we get;
God's largesse the source of this treat.

Placed at altars to praise the Lord;
A posy at a wedding cradled by the bride;
Symbols of love they delight and comfort;
Making life light and spirits bright.

Petals velvety colors lustrous;
Loved and adored by the humble the noble;
In gardens, in parks, flaunt the flowers;
To blossoms, beasts can't hold a candle.

Wreaths to remember our beloved dead;
Roses for birthday or anniversary;
A cheerful nosegay with love to a date;
A garland to welcome a dignitary.

Gems of otherwise dreary earth;
Names sweet-sounding, lyrical,
Apt for an infant at birth
Jasmine, Lily, Marigold.

Inspiration to poets and writers;
Passion for these marvels will never cease;
Never failing to inspire wonder;
With fabulous flowers, our heart's at ease.

Earth a stony desert be
Without trees or gorgeous blossoms;
Heaven's revelations we see
In exhilarating hues, bedazzling blooms.


Friends True and Loyal

FRIENDS TRUE AND LOYAL

Blessed the friend who sticks with you
Whether times are good or bad.
Happy the man who has not a few
To comfort and console when he's sad.

A friend doesn't mind offering his shoulder
For you to lean your head and cry on,
To listen when you pour out your woes,
To pick you up when you're down.

With you he walks the extra mile,
Though rough and difficult the way.
When all around seems dismal or vile
Hes your sunshine to brighten your day.

When you're in melancholy mood
A true friend lifts you up from gloom.
When you are hungry, he shares his food;
For you in his heart there's ample room.

A loyal friend remembers you
Though you're gone faraway.
He's a comrade and ally true;
Your name he'll not detract or betray.

A faithful friend,sincere and trusty,
Loves you, your warts, your faults your flaws.
Friendship unrequited wanes easily,
Nurtured it eases life's burdens and woes.

A poor life this if we've no friends;
Befriend and cherish your fellowmen;
Yellow black and white can blend;
Let love peace and friendship reign.
