Point of view


I’ve heard it said, “Don’t go to bed while hanging on to sorrow.
You may not have the chance to laugh with those you love tomorrow.”

You may not mean the words you speak when anger takes its toll.
You may regret your actions once you’ve lost your self control.

When you’ve lost your temper and you’ve said some hurtful things,
Think about the heartache that your action sometimes brings.

You’ll never get those moments back, such precious time to waste,
And all because of things you said in anger and in haste.

So if you’re loving someone and your pride has settled in,
You may not ever have the chance to say to them again,

“I love you and I miss you and although we don’t agree,
I’ll try to see your point of view, please do the same for me.”

    How so very true, and sadly enough most of us are guilty of this!


  2. One of the hardest things to do… to stay always calm and objective, so that we don’t “react” to events. Sending you love, Amira

  4. Thank you dear Habiba! Sometimes we have to “agree to disagree” but we can do it with love and kindness 🙂 Sending light your way, Amira
