I am looking for someone to assist me in finding 3 or more

Customer Question

I am looking for someone to assist me in finding 3 or more poems/etc about how wonderful each new day is.

I am sending flowers to my jehovah witness friend and with it I want to mention something about 'new days'/etc.....I CAN NOT have it mention her mentions of her birthday because they do not celebrate. It is ok to acknowledge birthdays...but they treat them just as any other day. The flowers will be my acknowledgement and the small poem will make it an 'everyday poem' just something regarding how wonderful life is...or she is....

Please keep in mind this poem/haiku has to be pretty short. I need it to fit onto a business sized card (you know the little greeting size cards that they fit in with the flowers) maybe something less than 5 sentences.

Feel free to send me a link with a variety of poems....THEY HAVE TO BE GOOD ONES THOUGH... I will not just accept any random link. I want it to say something HEARTFELT and make her FEEL REALLY GOOD.....thanks =)

Hi again,

I've found some poems that I think will be excellent for your purpose, but due to the fact that you're limited to writing only a few lines on the small gift card, you might want to use one stanza of a poem like this:

I also like this one, by Helen Keller:

The best and most beautiful things in this world
cannot be seen or even heard,
but must be felt with the heart.

Here is another one about a 'New Day'--author unknown:

Each new day is a new beginning-
to learn more about ourselves
to care more about others,
to laugh more than we did,
to accomplish more than we thought we could,
and be more than we were before.


Occasionally in life
there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment
which cannot be completely explained
by those symbols called words.
Their meanings can only be articulated
by the inaudible language of the heart.

- Martin Luther King Jr.


A kind heart
Is a fountain of gladness
Making everything
freshen into smiles.

- Washington Irving


Please let me know what you think of these, so far, and if any will be good for your purposes. You can see more here:

Hi again,

I've also found this one, of which you can use only one stanza, if you like.

I didn't know if you wanted to mention God or not or if it is appropriate under the circumstances. If you use one stanza, you can preface it with something like 'On each new day...'

Also, check out the menu on the left hand side to view other poems.
