Like the petals of a flower
Or the heart warmth of giving
We should be so grateful
For the amazing gift of living!
Kind words are precious
And like a cherry sweet
its enough; just one or two
to give the heart a treat
They are just like angels
To love- they lead the way
No matter what situation
Just one can make your day
They work wonderfully
Turning a frown into a smile
Your words, believe it or not
Makes someone’s life worthwhile
Mitten weather when rainbows grow
And grass is green, fluorescent flowers flow
Robins sing and the wind likes to blow
Clouds perform, the sun shines through
Heavy rain finally replaces the snow
Courage Poem, Life's Own Battle:
Didn't want a battle,
Yet you declared war,
Each knock you gave me made me stronger than before,
I will not give up,
I will not give in,
You won't make me fall,
I won't let you win.
"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
I try not to let the grief, just overcome my day,
I'll blow a kiss to heaven and send it when I pray.
I'll ask God to free me now, from a world so blue,
To take me up to Paradise, so I can fly with you.
I'm waiting for the day you come, calling out my name,
Until then I'll be staring at, your picture in a frame.
You live in my heart,
i won't break it apart,
even if it makes me to cry,
i will love you till i die.
My love is not written on sand,
for the waters to wash away,
it is written in my heart to stand,
all the difficulty that comes its way.
The sound of your voice
The feel of your hand
They affect me in ways
You could never understand
The love in your heart
The peace in your eyes
They make me feel
Like I want to cry
You are a gift
That God gave to me
And I can just feel
That we are meant to be
I'll love you forever
I hope you do too
For it's only a short while
Before we say "I do"
You had to go and that is understood.
Things just weren't right here for you.
The feeling you have given me
Has left me alone, standing alone.
I'm almost certain that you can see.
During your absence it has given me time
To think of ways I can escape this.
To run away from the pain.
Nothing ever seems to work
It's almost like a never ending rain.
With you there and me here standing alone
I worry for the day to come
The day when we are further apart
You won't be there in the coming year,
To help me through things, but you'll be in my heart.
There is also a fear of being detached,
Of being separate for so long.
We have progressed through the years.
The times we have shared merely brightened my day
And now all I can do is shed the tears.
The hurt that I am feeling right now,
I know that you can feel it inside.
But I want you to remember that once it's through,
You'll always be my big brother,
Someone whom I will forever look up to.
Memories of my youth.
Flood over my soul.
When I think of Grandma.
They make me feel whole.
Gathering at her house.
With all the family there.
We made lots of memories.
For all of us to share.
Lessons that she taught me.
Guide me thru the day.
If I listened closely.
I cannot go astray.
Love and commitment.
She drilled into me.
Making the person that I am.
Just who I want to be.
Grandma has many names.
Each one has their chosen.
But the names I want her called
Starts with love,
For she is warm and not frozen.
Be you to others kind and true,
As you'd have others be to you;
And neither do nor say to men
Whate'er you would not take again.
Once I found a cherry stone,
I put it in the ground,
And when I came to look at it,
A tiny shoot I found.
The shoot grew up and up each day,
And soon became a tree.
I picked the rosy cherries then,
And ate them for my tea.
What is pink? A rose is pink
By the fountain's brink.
What is red? A poppy's red
In its barley bed.
What is blue? The sky is blue
Where the clouds float through.
What is white? A swan is white
Sailing in the light.
What is yellow? Pears are yellow,
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? The grass is green,
With small flowers between.
What is violet? Clouds are violet
In the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!
The first time I saw you
I listened to my heart
I knew you were the one
From the very start
Just want you to know
From the bottom of my heart
You are my baby and my love
You are stealing my heart
When you smile
You make me smile
When you laugh
You make me laugh
How you make me love you
Never thought it would be true
wanting to hold you
I finally found you
When I look into your eyes
so pretty like beautiful starry skies
Let me love you
Baby I love you!
When I found you
I found myself
I found a guy
Like no one else
When I found you
I found my heart
I found it struck
By love's dart
When I found you
I found my soul
I found your love
That made me whole
When I found you
I found my dreams
I found out what
Love really means
When I found you
I found a lot
I found true love
With the name ‘Stott’
I never knew about happiness;
I didn’t think dreams came true;
I couldn’t believe in love,
Until I finally met you.
If I could have all the time in the world,
I know what I would do:
I’d spend the time
In pleasure sublime,
Just by being with you.
When all goes wrong, and my life runs amok,
I think of you, and I get unstuck;
In the midst of chaos, you make my heart sing;
You’re my peace, my happiness, my everything.
When life is cold,
I wrap myself in your warmth,
nestled in your love,
my perfect refuge.
I say a prayer of thanks each day
To the good Lord up above,
Thanks for the gift of you in my life,
For your deeply satisfying love.
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
Like bells and lights, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
I really want to tell you
Just how precious you are to me,
My every thought of you is as loving as can be
My heart is totally filled with things
That words alone can’t say,
This comes especially for you
With love on Christmas Day.
A friend wears a smile
When the world wears a frown.
A friend will lend a hand
To help when you’re down.
A friend knows when to listen
And when to give advice
A friend is there without condition
Any time, day or night.
A friend is what I’ll be,
Just as you’ve been to me.
Willing to listen
A heart that’s open
Kindness so rare.
Eager to help
How lucky am I
To find a friend so dear?
Wherever life takes me
Whatever hills I may climb
Or tumble down;
Whatever joy I feel
Or whatever makes me frown;
I’m so glad you are there to tag along;
To have a friend like you through it all
I’m really glad we’re friends.
A sepal, petal, and a thorn
Upon a common summer's morn
A flask of Dew - A Bee or two
A Breeze - a caper in the trees
And I'm a Rose!
I got me flowers to straw Thy way,
I got me boughs off many a tree;
But Thou wast up by break of day,
And brought'st Thy sweets along with Thee.
Yet though my flowers be lost, they say
A heart can never come too late;
Teach it to sing Thy praise this day,
And then this day my life shall date.
Love does not claim possession,
but gives freedom.
Cherry-ripe, ripe, ripe, I cry,
Full and fair ones; come, and buy:
If so be you ask me where
They do grow? I answer, there
Where my Julia's lips do smile;--
There's the land, or cherry-isle;
Whose plantations fully show
All the year where cherries grow.
