A friend is one who comes in when the whole world has gone out...

Special

 

Special  is a word

that is used to describe something one-of-a-kind

like a hug or a sunset

or a person who spreads love

with a smile or a kind gesture

 

Special describes people who act from their heart

and keep in mind the hearts of others

 

Special applies to something that is admired and precious

and which can never be replaced

 

Special is the word that best describes you.

 

NEW: The beatitudes

The Olive Tree

 

You ever waited for me

Under the olive tree

While I was roaming

Somewhere far away

 

Life is like a dream

A dream a game

Please, not to blame

To atone for my regret

 

I  went to wait

Everytime the moon turned round

Staring at the tree

Paying my worship to her

 

You never came back

I was waiting forever

Wait, wait, wait

The longer the wait

 the deeper the love

(译自 王洛宾 <<等待>>)

Life

Life is but short

Life is but sweet

if only we want it to be

 

In search of happiness

we may trip and fall

but it is this

which gives life a meaning

which makes life beautiful

 

A friend once said

happiness is in our hands

but many fail to see

as they are blinded

illusioned by the unreal afar

 

So open your eyes wide 

look inside your heart

see the beauty God has given 

and know 

that you're indeed blessed

 

I pray for contentment

for peace of the soul

for joy of the heart

I trust, I love, I pray

that the world is a beautiful place

Thank you Lord!

 

 

 

Prayers

In all the million of poems, quotation and songs, i believe that the most beautiful are the three prayers below.

 

Our Father who art in heaven

Halloweed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

on Earth as it is in Heaven

Give us today

our daily bread

and forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us

and do not bring us to the test

but deliver is from all evil

Amen

 

Hail Mary

Full of grace

the Lord is with thee

Blessed art thou amongst women 

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus

Holy Mary Mother of God

pray for us

sinners now

and at the our of our death

amen

 

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall me, world without end. Amen.

 

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God

The Father Almighty

Creator of heaven and earth 

of all that is seen and unseen

 

I believe in Jesus Christ

His only son

He was born of the Virgin Mary

And suffered under Pontius Pilate

He was crucified, died and was buried

On the third day, he rose again

to judge the living and the dead

I believe in the Holy Spirit

 

the holy catholic church

the communion of saints

the forgiveness of sins 

the resurrection of the body

and life everlasting

Amen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To the love I haven't met

I know we have never seen each other
nor even heard of our own existence
I'm not even sure if you exist
the perfect one for me

As each day becomes blanketed by darkness
and the garden becomes a forest
I sit, talking to you
as if you were right beside me

I have this to say--

I hope you DO exist
with all the abilites equipped
to wow me with your brilliance
and the niceness I have never known
Do you know that
many a lonely nights
when the rain is pouring out
and I lay in my bed alone
in body and in thoughts
The very suggestion that you are on this planet
albeit, maybe halfway round the earth
puts me at ease
and elevates me to the coveted sense of peace
I am afraid I'll never to get there to you
You, my nemesis, who was put here
to alleviate me of my daily pain
I embrace the hope that I will meet you one day
and feel protected with you
sometimes, though, I want to feel like
you need my protecting too
and I'll be more than willing
to offer that to you
In these billions of people out there
you are the only one I care
to have in my living
Gone will be my cynicality
and my skeptism
when thoughts that true love is a fad
will be my buried history
simply after I've met you (I know that for sure :) )

And this I give to you
my hope that we will meet one day out of the blue
Till then, take care
for every bruise you get
weighs heavily upon my heart
and please fight to stay alive
even if your neighbours drag you down
for I need time to find you
and I need you, to find me...

The five sisters poem

The five sisters poem is a wacky poem about 5 good friends. It is not a literary piece of work.. just something written rather out of the blue. Each of us keep a bookmark we made ourselves with the poem printed on it. It was written during class one day when we were in Form Five at St George's Girls' School. Although today we are far apart, each pursuing her own destiny, we still keep in touch... and when we meet, we are still the crazy lot...As if we're 16 years old all over again.. giggling and sharing secrets... we still do... :)

I love u all....

 

The 5 sisters

5 special sisters, a unique lot

together through times, sad and happy

3 prefects, monitor, and assistant as well

A cracko lot, cheerful and merry

The eldest is MC2

Joanne's social skills uncompared

A perfectionist undoubted till the end

Next jogs along Miss Athlete

Football, X-files, that's Miss Ai Leen

Happy-go-lucky, carefree, fun-loving gal

Shen Ying is the pioneer to the 'ahem' world

Though timid, don't underestimate her

Serious, worrisome but attraction galore

Sze Yin says she's desperate

When it comes to guys, she disappears

Mathematical genius and excellent comforter

 Weng Lin is the youngest of the lot

Pampered and romantic, loved by all

A NUTTY professor?

Don't be fooled by her cover.

The bond is forever

So they swear

Sistership lasting till the end.

I've Learnt


 I've learnt-
that we don't have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.
 
 I've learnt-
 that no matter how good a friend is,
 they're going to hurt you every
once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I've learnt-
that true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I've learnt-

that you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
 
 I've learnt-
 that it's taking me a long time
 to become the person I want to be.

I've learnt-
that you should always leave loved ones
with loving words. It may be the last
time you see them.

I've learnt-
that you can keep going
long after you think you can't.

 I've learnt-
that we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
 
I've learnt-
that either you control your attitude
 or it controls you.
 
 I've learnt-
that regardless of how hot and
steamy a relationship is at first,
 the passion fades and there had
better be something else to take
its place.

I've learnt-
that heroes are the people
who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.

I've learnt-
that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
 
 I've learnt-
 that my best friend and I can do anything
 or nothing and have the best time.
 
 I've learnt-
 that sometimes the people you expect
 to kick you when you're down,
 will be the ones to help you get back up.
 
 I've learnt-
 that sometimes when I'm angry
 I have the right to be angry,
 but that doesn't give me
 the right to be cruel.

I've learnt-
that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't
 mean they don't love you with all they have.

 I've learnt-
 that maturity has more to do with
 what types of experiences you've had
 and what you've learned from them
 and less to do with how many
 birthdays you've celebrated.

I've learnt-
 that it isn't always enough to be
 forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

 I've learnt-
that no matter how bad your heart is broken
 the world doesn't stop for your grief.
 
 I've learnt-
 that our background and circumstances
 may have influenced who we are,
 but we are responsible for who we become.
 
 I've learnt-
 that just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do.

 I've learnt-
 that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
 
 I've learnt-
 that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
 
 I've learnt-
 that your life can be changed in a matter of
 hours by people who don't even know you.
 
I've learnt-
 that even when you think you have no more to give,

when a friend cries out to you,
 you will find the strength to help.
 
I've learnt-
that credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.

 I've learnt-
that the people you care about most in life
 are taken from you too soon.
 

Send this to the people YOU BELIEVE In...

What is it about us, that when we find things we love
a great deal, that we jus can't be satisfied to have
found it and be happy, but that we long to possess it,
and then still find things about it to be unhappy
with?
Are we all some sort of possessive freaks?
