The Wisdom of Life (A letter to a friend)


My Dearest Friend:

The letter you wrote
Was pure and clean
Its love so gentle
Its anger so mean,
Roughly polluted
With a taste of pain
Full to the brim
With the fresh smell of rain,
It sounded so sad
But deep within
I sensed a spirit
So kind and keen,






The words and phrases
Were pleasant to read
Through them once more
To me was revealed:
The essence of life
The cost of love
Fires from beneath
Showers from above,
The wisdom of life
Doesn’t come so cheap
Sometimes in the path
Your heart will weep
The tears will flow
Like rivers of light
To wash the way, and
Clear your sight.
Pains have missions
They help us grow
They polish our souls
To shine and glow
They may annoy, but
Such is the cost
That we have to bear, so
We won’t be lost,
They’re signs for us
To see and know:
Whether we should stand
Or must rush to go,
When we shall wait
In the freezing snow
Or when to tiptoe
Towards the rainbow,
May be it’s time
For you to go!
To leave behind
Sorrow and foe,
To pass the phase
Of the freezing snow
And arrive in the land
Of the shiny rainbow,

 May be that’s where
You are meant to go!


The time has come
And the moment is now
Don’t doubt the signs
Do not ask how,
Dance with the wind
Slide with the snow
Rise with the fire
Go with the flow,
Your pack is heavy
Leave it behind
Clear your conscience –
Your heart, your mind,
Move on with peace
For I’m sure you’ll find
A land full of wonders
A God that’s kind
