Pride, Humility, Love and Wisdom (Revised)

This is another poem that I wrote based on a quote from my friend Eyob.  I saw that it was picking up some traffic and decided to revisit it.

Why Ever?

Wednesday’s Quote From Henry Ford

Saturday’s Verse From Proverbs 2

Innocent Birth

image source:

From the day
of their birth

As innocent angels
upon the earth

It’s from us
they do expect

To lovingly nurture
and them protect

As through life
these babies grow

We teach them
what we know

All the wisdom
we’ve learned along

The paths taken
right or wrong

If these things
we don’t give

However then will
life they live

In this world
without falling down

Unable to rise
from the ground?

They are seeds
that we sow

And to them
this we owe!

I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I
was not busy with another patient,

well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had
another doctor’s appointment this morning, as
he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to
the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her

He told me that she had been there
for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.

He replied that she no longer knew who he was,
that she had not recognized him in
five years now.

I was surprised, and asked him, ‘And you still go every
morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’

He smiled as he
patted my hand and said,

‘She doesn’t
know me, but I still know who she is.’

I had to hold back
tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought,

‘That is
the kind of love I want in my life.’

True love is
neither physical, nor romantic.

True love is an
acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not


With all the jokes
and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an
important message.. This one I thought I could share with you.

happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make
the best of everything they have.

I hope you share this with someone you
care about. I just did..

how to survive the storm, But how to dance in the rain.’
