One Life

One Life

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

We have only one

"
A life to live, a smile to make
A beauty I have to share
A simple word for someone's sake
Though life seems so unfair

A morning call, a short "hello"
A tap on somebody's back
A simple "yes", instead of "no"
Could be somebody's luck

A simple touch, a goodnight kiss
Could warm a frozen world
A soulful hug, I'll always miss
Surely when I get old

But once this life that I shall pass
Brings me to a peaceful place
I'll face the day, not how it was
But a life that's full of grace.

To be kind and compassionate in life is not that difficult. You never know how much happiness you can add to another person's life with a simple smile or kind word. What a warm and wonderful write this is, Dh. I liked it. Lydi**

Living life gracefully is an art. Sometimes simple gestures of selflessness can go a long way in making our world a better place. Great sentiments very well expressed. Much appreciated Dhaye.

It was a pleasure for me Dhaye!
Very nicely done, I love the flow of the poem. You accidentally used 'warmth' for 'warm' in "Could warm a frozen world". I agree with the sentiment of this poem. Kindness to others is always the best philosophy of life to have.
