In Joy And Sorrow

Poem By Maria C. Pires Costa

What glorious times she has lived!
Bright days of enthusiasm for her activity
Surrounded by lots of friends and a happy family!
Now treasuring plenty of gifts received...

Clouds of gloom have come to fill the air...
For family love and joy of life
She keeps struggling without a strife
Always facing it without despair!

... For Our Soul To Nurture

They are friendly, entertaining, mysterious,
Addressing different themes, issues,
Telling us diverse life stories
Much more exciting than news.

From Destruction To Reconstruction

From images of devastation,
deep pain, and sometimes even revolt,
come before our eyes living tokens
of humanitarianism, solidarity, cooperation -

Assim É...

É ter e não ter
É alegria e dor
Em cada dia desde o amanhecer.
É lidar, actuar, recordar,

Abro Janelas Para O Mundo...

Pergunto-me por que razão
isto acontece...?
O sono ainda não obedece
O coração quase estremece

A Special Request

I have no time
To waste any longer.
I just want to live
Each day in wonder.
