Life goes on…

Dedicated to a very special person … combative, defiant, stubborn, hardworking, generous, lively and lover of life … to live life was her daily struggle and the thought of death was the consolation of her pain … what her leaves are beautiful memories that will remain forever in our hearts… Rest in peace …

I’m sad, lonely,

pain accompanied

from the life that goes.

You’re not there…

and I live…

of what I have not!

The gray sky insists

where the sun does not rise

on the empty road with you.

Me and quiet expect

the noise of your steps…

overcame the sadness

with best memories,

from what revive

immortal emotions.

I love you in a park with flowers…

it is spring.

Gandhi – “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

 

“The human race can get rid of violence only by resorting to non-violence. Hatred can be overcome only by love. Responding hate with hate can do nothing that increasing the size and depth of hatred itself.”

Gandhi

Pablo Neruda…I like you when you’re silent

A sweet, deep and enchanting poem dedicated to my husband…”Let me also speak to you with your silence…Clear like a lamp, simple like a ring. ”

 

I like you when you are quiet because it is as though you are absent,
and you hear me from far away, and my voice does not touch you.
It looks as though your eyes had flown away
and it looks as if a kiss had sealed your mouth.

Like all things are full of my soul
You emerge from the things, full of my soul.
Dream butterfly, you look like my soul,
and you look like a melancoly word.

I like you when you are quiet and it is as though you are distant.
It is as though you are complaining, butterfly in lullaby.
And you hear me from far away, and my voice does not reach you:
let me fall quiet with your own silence.

Let me also speak to you with your silence
Clear like a lamp, simple like a ring.
You are like the night, quiet and constellated.
Your silence is of a star, so far away and solitary.

I like you when you are quiet because it is as though you are absent.
Distant and painful as if you had died.
A word then, a smile is enough.
And I am happy, happy that it is not true.

Pablo Neruda

Goodnight…”Only a burning patience will lead to the attainment of a splendid happiness.”

Goodnight, who dies slowly and those who have decided to live with emotions, love and knowledge.

He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
dies slowly.

He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones “it’s” rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
dies slowly.

He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
die slowly.

He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
dies slowly.

He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
dies slowly.

He or she who abandon a project before starting it, who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn’t know, he or she who don’t reply when they are asked something they do know,
die slowly.

Let’s try to avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.

Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.

Pablo Neruda

Little reflection …

I started write this post with bad and angry word because sometimes people can be really hateful, but at the end I thinking that was just a spent of energy and nothing more, and so I found some more delicate words to say what I feel in this moment about relationship with people, that sometimes are good and sometimes are bad. That’s life!

The relationships between people become so complex and complicated that one day we ask: “OMG how did we get here?”

The harmony and synergy that unites two people at the beginning of a relationship is established by the first impact, like when you meet what will become our best friend, our companion in life or just a friend of entertainment. I don’t want mention family relationships, another story quite heavy!

The cool thing about this is that, fortunately, we can choose and we choose also based on natural selection that is established between people.

We cannot be all friends otherwise the world would go in bankrupt, as we couldn’t be all enemies because there would be the destruction, so we should try to find the common sense of all, a balance between people, not to fall into hell traps machined by whom this balance doesn’t want. A bit as it happens today, it seems that the world hates you, for ex. you leave the house, take the car to go to work and there is another one waiting for you outside to have an accident and thus to profit by the insurance, or a colleague that blows the promotion because is in confidence with the chief, or a brother / sister who will turn their backs on, all the time and so… you get to isolate and assess things well.

Will be good but always with grace! Let us not be used as doormats choose the life we ​​want and the people we want to be part of it. We always say what we think without hold us even if we hurt others, sometimes I think that it is better to be direct and not think twice about it, if the other person doesn’t understand you probably cannot be part of your lives otherwise would take our criticism as constructive and not as an offense.

On the other hand, says the rhetoric, we are not all the same, and thank goodness I add! 🙂
