My Gregarious Friend

Above: M and I posed for a photo shot on her last day in my department.

Isn't M a gorgeous lady? She is not only gorgeous, she is also gregarious and a joy to be with.

M is an architect by training but has taken a slight detour in her career to experience life as a marketer. I am glad that she has done it and because of that I am able to know her better. M is that some people that come to my life and leave footprints in my heart.

An irrepressible lady, she keeps the mood up even in the most dire situation. I am very grateful to her for helping me to put up an exhibition which I had zilch knowledge and within a short time frame. Beneath her happy-go-lucky personality lies a creative streak. True to her architecture background, she is good with drawing and has an artistic flair.

In the last five years or so that I have known her, she is a very capable woman. Like me, M is a working mother. And she has managed her career and family superbly.

The poem below is dedicated to M. On her return to her first love, I wish her health, wealth and happiness.


Some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.

Some people come into our lives
and quickly go... Some stay for awhile
and embrace our silent dreams.

They help us become aware
of the delicate winds of hope...
and we discover within every human spirit
there are wings yearning to fly.

They help our hearts to see that
the only stairway to the stars
is woven with dreams...
and we find ourselves
unafraid to reach high.

They celebrate the true essence
of who we are...
and have faith in all
that we may become.

Some people awaken us
to new and deeper realizations...
for we gain insight
from the passing whisper of their wisdom

Throughout our lives we are sent
precious souls...
meant to share our journey
however brief or lasting their stay
they remind us why we are here.

To learn... to teach... to nurture... to love

Some people come into our lives
to cast a steady light
upon our path and guide our every step
their shining belief in us
helps us to believe in ourselves.

Some people come into our
lives to teach us about love...
The love that rests within ourselves.

Let us reach out to others
and feel the bliss of giving
for love is far richer in action
that it ever is in words.

Some people come into our lives
and they move our souls to sing
and make our spirits dance.

They help us to see that everything on earth
is part of the incredibility of life...
and that it is always there
for us to take of its joy.

Some people come into our lives
and leave footprints on our hearts
and we are never ever the same.
