My Brilliant Image by Hafez

‘’I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being’’

 You will Never Walk Alone by Oscar Hammerstein II

‘’Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain,

though your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart and you will never walk alone. You will never walk alone.

Recension day by Duncan Forbes

‘’Unburn the boat, rebuild the bridge,

Reconsecrate the sacrilege, unspill the milk, decry the tears,

Turn back the clock, relive the years, replace the smoke inside the fire,

Unite fulfilment with desire, undo the done gainsay the said,

Revitalise the buried dead, revoke the penalty and clause,

Reconstitute unwritten laws, repair the heart, unite the tongue,

Change faithless old to hopeful young,

Inure the body to disease and help me to forget you, please.

 Your Task by Rumi

‘’Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it’’

Everything is going to be all right by Derek Mahon

How should I not be glad to contemplate the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window and a high tide reflected on the ceiling?

There will be dying, there will be dying, but there is no need to go into that.

The poems flow from the hand unbidden and the hidden source is the watchful heart.

The sun rises in spite of everything and the far cities are beautiful and bright.

I lie here in a riot of sunlight watching the day break and the clouds flying.

Everything is going to be all right.
