  1. Life To Me
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2015


    Life to me is all that I see,
    Each and every day.
    It's the family I love, the people I speak of,
    It's a smile I receive on my way.

    Life to me is all that I hear,
    Each and every day.
    It's the birds in the tree, singing to me,
    It's the sounds of waves crashing on the bay.

    Life to me is all that I touch,
    Each and every day.
    It's the warmth of my cup, the soft little pup,
    It's the kiss that makes me sway.

    Life to me is all that I taste,
    Each and every day.
    It's the love of dessert, my fruity water squirt,
    It's my favourite food at the buffet.

    But what life is to me is most of all,
    Is the love I feel each day.
    Without family and friends to share in life's frenz,
    Life would be so grey.

  3. Life Is A...
    by Mother Teresa


    Life is a beauty, admire it.
    Life is bliss, taste it.
    Life is a dream, realize it.
    Life is a challenge, meet it.
    Life is a duty, complete it.
    Life is a game, play it.
    Life is costly, care for it.
    Life is a wealth, keep it.
    Life is love, enjoy it.
    Life is a mystery, know it.
    Life is a promise, fulfill it.
    Life is sorrow, overcome it.
    Life is a song, sing it.
    Life is a struggle, accept it.
    Life is a tragedy, brace it.
    Life is an adventure, dare it.
    Life is life, save it.
    Life is luck, make it.
    Life is too precious, do not destroy it.



  4. Life is meant to be a vibrant, deeply felt, growing mosaic of long, meaningful moments. Brendon Burchard


  5. Painter Of Life
    by Wilferd Peterson


    You hold in your hand the camel's hair brush of a painter of life.
    You stand before the vast white canvas of Time.
    The paints are your thoughts, emotions and acts.

    You select the colors of your thoughts;
    Drab or bright, weak or strong, good or bad.

    You select the colors of your emotions,
    Discordant or harmonious, harsh or quiet, weak or strong.

    You select the colours of your acts;
    Cold or warm, fearful or daring, small or big.

    You select and mix the positive colors of heart, mind and spirit
    Into the qualities of effective living; patience, determination,
    Endurance, self-discipline, work, love, and faith.

    Each moment of your life is a brush stroke
    In the painting of your growing career.

    The art of achievement is the art of making life -
    Your life - a masterpiece.



  6. Life Is A Gift
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest


    Life is a gift to be used every day,
    Not to be smothered and hidden away;
    It isn't a thing to be stored in the chest
    Where you gather your keepsakes and treasure your best;
    It isn't a joy to be sipped now and then
    And promptly put back in a dark place again.

    Life is a gift that the humblest may boast of
    And one that the humblest may well make the most of.
    Get out and live it each hour of the day,
    Wear it and use it as much as you may;
    Don't keep it in niches and corners and grooves,
    You'll find that in service its beauty improves.
