The greatest wisdom

The rich food, once eaten, will be out.
The desire, once met, will be lost.
The great fun, once had, will be gone.
I stopped giving any value to them.
It is the wisdom I have acquired late.
The birth itself is a bubble to burst.
Not craving rebirth is the greatest wisdom.

The Greatest Love

She is sixty. She lives
the greatest love of her life.

She walks arm-in-arm with her dear one,
her hair streams in the wind.
Her dear one says:
"You have hair like pearls."

Her children say:
"Old fool."

The Greatest Poem

Good poems don't rhyme
Great poems don't have rhythm
The greatest poem is not one on paper but said out loud
Good poems are about flowers and puppies
Great poems are about peace and happiness
The greatest poems are about change
What should change.
how it should change.
And who should change.
Most of all the greatest poem is not one about the life you wanted to live
But the one you are living.

The river and its waves are one

The river and its waves are one
surf: where is the difference between the river and its waves?

When the wave rises,
it is the water;
and when it falls,
it is the same water again.

Tell me, Sir, where is the distinction?
Because it has been named as wave,
shall it no longer be considered as water?

Within the Supreme Brahma,
the worlds are being told like beads:
Look upon that rosary with the eyes of wisdom.

The Greatest Gift

When Christmas shopping is done,
wrapped gifts lie ‘neith a tree
sparkling bright with tinsel and light
for everyone to see.

Each gift has been selected
with thoughtfulness and care.
Toys and such will mean so much
like all the gifts we bear.

But let us keep within our heart
the much greater gift than these.
One from above, with God's great love
should bring us to our knees.

A gift of birth to all on Earth.
A gift that's far from small.
To everyone, He gave His Son…
The greatest gift of all.

The Greatest Shoulder

Towards the greatest miracle one has a shoulder,
Where is there a conquest from the fallen ground?
This avalanche is but a solution of the oddest wars,
Underneath the seas of bliss ride the waves touching us.
It is land, it is land that blows the iron hands with gusts,
These hands are grand helpers of the inner state.
I follow the mad poets of a forgotten land,
Best men are even deadlier than the sword.

Towards the ground we fetch the lightning,
As thunder strokes the pen that delivers a wonder.
One felt the emotions of a day that betook trouble -
From their jailers that became jailed themselves.

The Greatest inspiration

This is for the ones who mean the most,
who are the greatest inspiration,
who are the hardest to let go.
They will sit by your side,
and listen to every word you say,
without judging,
without criticism,
and without turning their back on you.
They will teach you the greatest life lessons,
what's good and bad,
and what it's like to loose someone you dearly love.
In my life I have learned many truths,
and in my eyes,
the greatest way to prosper,
especially in the hardest of times,
is to love them,
cherish them,
live in their wisdom,
and hold them close to your heart.

In memory of best friend Rico, who I will always LOVE.

The Greatest Song I Ever Heard

Now the greenest green Ive ever seen
Was the grass on which you laid
And the bluest blue was in my eyes
When you said you couldnt stay
And the biggest lost I ever took
Was losing what weve begun
And the greatest song I ever heard
Was the one we never sung
Now the reddest red Ive always said
Is the sunset coming down
Soon the blackest night that kills the light
Is the only thing around
And the downest down I ever been
Is when I knew my race was run
And the greatest song I ever heard
Was the one we never sung
Time will kill the pain they say
And well live to love another day
If you wanna win you got to play the game
Now the greatest break came on the day
We were standing in the rain
And the hardest hurt Ive ever know
Was when you tried to ease my pain
And the longest day in history
Waiting till my cryings done
And the saddest song I ever heard
Was the one we finally sung

The Greatest Love On Earth

Its a long distance love affair
Tender are the moments that they rarely share
They hope their time will come someday
When together with the fraulein theyll steal away
Its the greatest love on earth
Hes come from so far away to see
Is this his lifelong dream or just a fantasy
Hes dying inside dying of frustration reaching out in hope
And he wants so hard to hide inside of her soul
cause thats what he needs to cope
Its the greatest love on earth
Her lovin eyes are all he wants to see
And he knows that in her heart there lies his destiny
When she holds him in her arms he can feel the warmth
Of her gentle ways
And when she kissed him it was just like making music
That no one else will ever play
Its the greatest love on earth
Hes come from so far away to see
Is this his lifelong dream or just a fantasy
Its the greatest love on earth
Hes come from so far away to see
Is this his lifelong dream or just another fantasy

The Greatest Love Of All

Some men seek solace
Some take to drink
Some men find knowledge, yeah
At least thats what they think
Some take to violence
Streamlining their dreams
Some sit in silence
And learn what love can mean
Much further to go
Much further to crawl
But one day youll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The load is tough
The path is long
Strewn with rocks, yeah
But youd be wrong, so wrong
One single spark
Can start a prairie fire
When one man speaks truth
He fills this world with pure desire
Much further to go
Much further to crawl
But one day youll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
One day united
One day free
Youll be rewarded
The one true path is unity
Fruit dont fall
Too far from the tree
One day well bathe
In true humility
Much further for truth
Much further to fall
I pray that youll find
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all
The greatest love of all

The greatest goal of all time

I've seen lots of great goals
some to take your breath away
I recall one from many years ago
that has stayed with me to this day.
The player had the ball at his feet
cutting through the defence like a sword
beating player after player with ease
the whole ground stood to applaud.
I've witnessed individual goals
and some created by most of the team
but the greatest one I've ever seen?
was by myself in a beautiful lucid dream.
I was playing for England against Brazil
the crowd was roaring out my name
it was the World Cup Final at Wembley
two all with a minute left in the game.
I then tackled and robbed Pele of the ball
and I went on a long and mazy run
it ended with me hitting home the winner
'What a goal' read the headline in the Sun.
I lifted up the Jules Rimet Trophy
got carried round the pitch shoulder high
but when Pele said my goal was the greatest
I just fell to my muddy knees to cry.
It's been said that dreams can come true
and that's a saying I know to be right
because that 'dream' goal I scored at Wembley
was voted best ever goal on the telly last night!

The Greatest Thing

Everyone stopped when she walked into the room
Isnt this the greatest thing
Everyone own up but nobody could touch her
Isnt this the greatest thing
Punch the clock keep boxing clever
Youll be young enough for ever
Isnt this the greatest thing
Isnt this the greatest thing
I heard some new confection
Said we cant afford to feel affection
And its the lastest thing
In and out of matrimony
Never once removed the sony
cos its a status thing
So girls like that above described
Are not to be so easily bribed
With a white frock and a ring
Punch the clock and in time youll get pulled apart
If youre married on paper and not in your heart
But I wont be told that life with the one you love is sordid
Just because some authority says you cant afford it
Since nights were long and days were olden
Woman to man has been beholden
But since then times have been changing
She sends back his tribute of a rose
And says this ring is better suited for the nose
Hes always fingering
I punch the clock and its ok
I know a girl who takes my breath away
And its the greatest
And its the greatest thing

Youre The Greatest Love

(howard houston/ bonnie tyler)
Producer for bonnie: howard houston
Youve got the look of love
Oh from heaven above
Your cool blue eyes
Are killin me
Im hooked on you
Youre my fantasy
When two hearts collide
There is no place to hide
Tell me your dreams
Ill tell you mine
To lose this love
Would he a crime
*youre the greatest love
(the) greatest of all
Ill be there whenever you call
Youre my one and only
Baby, when Im lonely
Just the thought of you
It drives me wild
(* repeat)
I saved my heart for you
See what a love can do
A lonely night
In the tough old town
It breaks my heart
When the lights go down
Oh make it sweet, Im dyin
Thered be no reason why
Tell me your dreams
Ill tell you mine
To lose this love
Would he a crime
Oh cause its the greatest love
The greatest of all
Ill be there whenever you call
Youre my one and only
Baby, when Im lonely
Just the thought of you
It drives me wild
(* repeat)
Dont stop lovin
Dont stop tryin
Yeah Ill give my heart
Youll never see me cryin
Dont stop lovin
Dont stop at all
Ill always be around
Whenever you fall
(* repeat 2 times)
Youre the greatest love

Death - The Greatest Leveler

Death gives no concession
Death spares none;
None can impress death
By being anything
To escape its embrace;

Whoever is born
is certain to die;
Death respects no merit;
Skills in writing poetry
Artistic talents or ideological commitments
Marxist, communist, capitalist, feminist, male chauvinist
Terrorist, scientist;
None can save oneself from death;

The winner in beauty contests
Or delighting participant in fashion pageants,
can not seduce death,
She has to shed the body enthralling
And beauty dissolves into five elements;

Winning games can not win death
Being great sportsman
Can not make death sportsman like;
Death does not care ruler or the ruled
Death is inevitable to the emperor, queen or ordinary citizen
To democratically elected most popular leader or to any one;

Farmer who grows many crops
Or businessman who owns many shops
Has to obey death’s call;
Death is the greatest leveler

Death gives no concession;
Death is equal in operation
And spares none;
After the game is over
The king and the pawn
Go into the same box;

Death has no consideration, compassion
Does its duty with perfect precision.

The Greatest Love Of All

It's easy to love when the years are few
And hairs are not yet grey,
To whisper softly, 'I love you...
Today and every day! '
It's easy to love when the ears can hear
And two little eyes can see,
When everything's still crystal clear
And easy as can be...
It's easy to love when the money's there
And precious gifts are bought,
When life seems precious, life's still fair
And not some cruel sport...
It's easy to love when your mind's your own
And you maintain control
And your body's fine in flesh and bone
And nothing haunts your soul.
Yet Jesus loved when His flesh was torn,
With holy hands outstretched...
Surrounded by each scoundrel's scorn,
As to Him each was fetched...
Yes, Jesus loved... He prayed... God heard...
And God forgave each one!
For to His Son, God gave His word,
Who prayed, 'Your will be done! '
And oh, what love, anoints the Earth,
Forgiveness to impart...
For God is love and proves His worth
To every Christian heart...
The greatest love comes from the Lord,
No greater love is known...
To see God smile is our reward,
When we are taken home...


Denis Martindale, copyright 28th September 2010.

The Greatest

Little boy, in a baseball hat stands in the field with his ball and bat.
Says, "I am the greatest player of them all" puts his bat on his shoulder and he tosses up his ball.
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down swings his bat all the way around
The world so still you can hear the sound, the baseball falls to the ground.
Now the little boy doesn't say a word, picks up his ball, he is undeterred.
Says, "I am the greatest there has ever been" and he grits his teeth and he tries it again.
And the ball goes up and the ball comes down swings his bat all the way around
The world so still you can hear the sound, the baseball falls to the ground.
He makes no excuses, he shows no fear, he just closes his eyes and listens to the cheers.
Little boy, he adjusts his hat, picks up his ball, stares at his bat
Says,"I am the greatest, the game is on the line" and he gives his all one last time.
And the ball goes up and the moon so bright, swings his bat with all his might
The world's as still, as still can be, the baseball falls and that's strike three.
Now it's suppertime and his momma calls, little boy starts home with his bat and ball.
Says, "I am the greatest, that is a fact, but even I didn't know I could pitch like that!"
Says, "I am the greatest,that is understood, but even I didn't know I could pitch that good!

The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift man has received, was from Heaven, and conceived,
In the very heart and mind of God, and delivered unto this earthly sod.
That gift to man was our Salvation, and given by God, to every nation,
That gift to all from our Creator, was Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

He is a Wonderful Counselor to us, who in The Savior place their trust,
Christ sends The Spirit to live inside, to be for us His Light and Guide,
In all problems, both big and small, Jesus assists us through them all,
A Wonderful Counselor in this life, is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Born a babe, yet He is Mighty God, and will rule men with an Iron Rod,
Until then, our Lord rules in hearts, through His Spirit which He imparts,
To all believers now born Again, as He gives eternal life to mortal men,
And He’s in control of everything, as Sovereign Lord and Eternal King.

He is The Everlasting Father for all, saved by Christ, from Adam’s fall,
His everlasting arms comfort us, mere creatures formed from the dust,
Now brought into God’s own family, and one that shall last for eternity,
And now children of the Father above, secured forever by God’s Love.

He is The Coming Prince of Peace, with a Kingdom that will not cease,
And the peace He puts in our heart, during times of trial will not depart,
When you believe make no mistake, all believers, God will not forsake,
For when you come to faith in Him, you’re forever forgiven of your sin.

So come to The Counselor friend, for wonderful guidance, with no end,
Lead by Christ with staff and rod, for our Shepherd is The Mighty God,
The Everlasting Father, for all those, who believe in The Lord who rose,
To be Prince of Peace in a millennium, and into an eternity yet to come.

The Greatest

[Intro]
(The the, the the, the the, the the)
Don't throw no roses on my grave, boo
That's not a soldier, it's more like an angel
You got no where to run, no one to pray to
Jesus and Moses ain't comin' to save you
(The greatest, the the the greatest)
I flow like a butterfly, I sting like a hornet
They won't let me have it
Not even if no one else want it
And if I try to take it
They wanna break me down and strip me naked
They write a brand new rule and break it
They lie, they cheat, they steal, they fake it
But I'mma make it, Lord I can take it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Cut the drama boy, save it for your mama
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
I can't sweat it, know I got to get it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Without no doubt, my name will survive
(The greatest the the greatest man alive)
(The greatest man)
(The greatest, the the)
I'mma make it, Lord I can take it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Cut the drama boy, save it for your mama
I'm the (The gratest man alive)
I can't sweat it, I know I got to get it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Without no doubt, my name will survive
(The, the greatest man alive)
(The greatest, the the greatest man)
(The the, the greatest man alive)
(The, the the greatest, the the the greatest man)
(The greatest man alive)
I'mma make it, know that I can take it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Cut the drama boy, save it for your mama
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
I can't sweat it, I know I gotta get it
I'm the (The greatest man alive)
Without no doubt my name will survive
(The greatest man, the greatest man alive)
It only gets harder
It always seems so far away
The sky's getting darker
Another storm is on the way
(The the greatest, the the the greatest,the the)
Another storm is on the way
(The the the the greatest, the the greatest)
(The greatest man alive)

In Memoriam, the Greatest Love: Whitney

I was spending a few days with families in Houston,
When I heard of the abrupt passing of W.Houston,
Which came naturally as a shock.
Death always demoralizes the fibers of our heart.
Death always brings emotions that rock,
Break and devastate every part
Of our body and every ounces of our soul.
We can never fully describe the toll
That this mysterious phenomenon
Has on our lives. Death comes like a raging lion,
Faster than the speed of sound, way beyond
Our scientific and artistic imagination.
Death is a criminal that no one is fond
Of, and that no one likes to talk about,
However, death has a way of bringing people together,
It has a way of forcing us to express our bout
With love, which is the greatest desire,
The greatest feeling of emotions.
Love brings foes and friends together,
Love brings strangers and nations
Together, Love is universal,
And Love has no ethnicity and no boundaries.
Love, the greatest feeling of all,
Is at times painful, and is full of amenities.
Human beings, my Brothers and Sisters,
Have very short memories; Love should be practiced
Daily, not only when we encounter tragedies and disasters,
Or when we are victimized by the worst beast,
That ever existed, which is Death.
Let's honor Whitney by celebrating Love every day,
Because death has a way of committing the biggest theft,
And of stealing the very best Angels in the bay.
Our very best people have been snatched away
From us in tragic fashions: Jesus Christ Superstar,
Toussaint Louverture, Dessalines, Martin Luther King,
Malcolm X, Don Cornelius and today our favorite star,
Singer and Sister Whitney Houston, who could sing,
From morning to dawn, with the angelic orchestra.
It is the end of something good, the end of an era.
Let's us celebrate the greatest LOVE of all,
Continue to fight the evils, and keep on walking tall.
May all our predeceased Brothers and Sisters
Rest eternally in peace, among the Angels!
