To Grow In Love Is What God Asks

Poem By Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

To grow in love is what God asks...
Or lest not grow at all,
And let happy being small be...
Should be when large not be good at all.
For theirs nothing wrong with being small
Though large all other things appear,
And we strong to ourselves may not seem,
Which causes us to have fear,
For it is good to be small:
Its decreed by God above,
To be small is a blessing
If your filled with love!

Ignored by sundry and all
Who deny his mere existence
And his name in vain often call.

Who passing happened to be.

A Gift From God

Every smile, every gurgle, every cry,
It is to you a gift from God,
Nurture it, and it will grow,
As the seed does in the sod...

Some cant wait for tomorrow, some dont want to see again,

Some carved from themselves whether they win or they lose.

The Most Horrible Sight To A Man In This World Is The Beauty Of A Lady’s Smile

‘The most horrible sight to a man in this world’
Words I reads somewhere that escape my brain-
‘Is the beauty of a Ladies smile’
A sentiment I found insane!
