Talented author and poet Bernard D’sa’s latest book ‘Symphonies Of Love’ focuses on celebration of life. As Bernard believes that God is the main source of all inspiration, the poems are all centered on life, love, belief and motivation.‘Symphonies Of Love’ is Bernard D’sa’s unique and bold attempt in which the poet advocates to celebrate life with utmost care and dedication. The poet cautioned all not to waste God’s precious gift – life and said it should be celebrated every moment. Throughout the poems the writer urged us to accept life as it is and embrace joyfully what life has to offer without regrets. The poet said that only through living a life and celebrating a life one can thank God for his valuable gift. Life is a wonderful journey and one has to enjoy each moment with gratitude and love and one should not take anything for granted. The key to celebration is not what one is feeling but rather what one is experiencing in solidarity with others.

Divisions took place and land divided
Nations have fought and barriers they built
Destruction is what we have seen so far….."

"Somewhere somehow someone will fall in Love
Love is a mysterious thing even lovers can’t explain how does it feel
If lovers decide not to use the phone then the mobile servicing company would be at loss
If out of sight, out of mind would be true then there wouldn’t’ be any long distance relationships (affairs)"
