On A Rainy Day

Poem By Maria C. Pires Costa

The morning air was very cold,
And the sky was extensively grey
On that heavy rainy day.

It invited me to write...
Some heartfelt common lines
From the bottom of my heart.

As the rain was heavily touching the ground,
I thought of thousands of homeless around
Without a shelter, food and care
In the urgent need of a family,
Which would be fair.

The rain had already stopped
When someone knocked at my door.
I saw a young couple barefoot,
Who, for so little, blessed me and my family galore.

(January 2010)

Addressing different themes, issues,
Telling us diverse life stories
Much more exciting than news.

From images of devastation,
deep pain, and sometimes even revolt,

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...

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.
