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? Sometimes an inspirational idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our life's purpose. Inspiration comes in many forms. However, the root of all inspiration is the idea that our lives are meaningful. Inspiration is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe. When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life's purpose.

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.
