Poems about Inspiration and Hope

Life is a lot of work. What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and burned out?

When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life's purpose.

Poem About Making The Most Of Our Time With Loved Ones
  • By Jennifer Fernandes
  • Published: April 2015
Don't Wait Until I Am Gone

Treat me with love, dignity, respect and compassion now as I am healthy, vibrant and alive.
Don't wait to hear that I am sick and dying to love me the way I was meant to be loved.
Bring me flowers and candy on any day just because...
Don't wait for a holiday, love and cherish me every day.
