If my heart had wings….
I would fly to the farthest reaches
of your soul.
I would soar high above your spirit
and give it flight.
Earth and sky would have no boundaries
that we could not dissolve.
If my heart had wings…
I would be able to touch
the wind as it whispered
I could take your hand
we could follow its course.
If my heart had wings…
Earth would be too small
a place to share with you.
The sky not high enough
to allow us to climb.
If my heart had wings..
only you could give it
the will to fly.
Only you could guide it
if my heart had wings.
A JOURNEY OF FRIENDSHIP
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell you
what your friendship has meant
to me over the years.
When things were bad, I
knew that you always cared.
When things were good, I knew no
one was happier for me than you.
Your unwavering love has been an
anchor in my life.
Even when we didn’t agree,
I knew without doubt that you still cared.
Do you know that caring is returned each day?
That I think of you often and only wish you
the very best in life.
I hope our journey is always travelled together,
Because without you in my life
I would be missing a large part of my heart.
Sending this to you with much love.
WHAT LIFE IS
Life is full of many
the warmest dawn
can feel cold in spirit.
the sun shines brightest
on the most bitter
Life should seek warmth.
It should seek the love
of like souls.
It should search for the smile
in the face of tears.
It should search for
friendship‘s warm glow
in the midst of darkness
Life was never meant to
be lived in solitude.
It was always meant to
So in life,
give yourself that second
Open up to new
Give the benefit
of a doubt
when you aren‘t certain.
Live life to the fullest.
Not in what you DO, but
in what you GIVE to others.
And in doing so,
you‘ll find that you‘ve
received more from life
than you ever expected.
WAITING FOR LOVE
Sometimes when we‘re alone,
we think love will never find us.
We wait for fireworks or the passion,
and are saddened when it does not come.
But we forget...
Love doesn‘t always come in a rush of emotion ...
Sometimes it settles in our hearts slowly,
like the warm glow of a sunset.
Some day soon love will light your world.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND
Why we can’t have morality without dictating religion.
Why we can’t have differences without hatred.
Why we can’t have disagreements without belittlements.
Why we can’t love a higher spirit, but each in our own way.
Why we can’t feed the homeless but can rebuild the world.
Why we can’t find charity for our neighbours but can pray for a stranger.
Why we can’t see our own faults but can so easily find them in others.
Why we can’t see the good but so readily point out the bad.
I don’t understand
Why love doesn’t return the gift of generosity.
Why we profess to value honesty then lie to protect ourselves.
Why success can’t be won without deceit.
Why we abuse the world but cherish possessions.
Why profit means more than the method that achieves it.
Why what people say isn’t what they mean.
I don’t understand
Why we complain more about what we don’t have
instead of seeing what we’ve already been given.
Why we want so much
when it’s usually the simple things that make us happy.
Why we try to be someone and something we aren’t
instead of celebrating who we truly are.
Why we aren’t more thankful for the people in our lives
instead of the things in our lives.
YOUR GIFT TO ME
I see you close in my mind’s eye
always standing near.
Ready with a hand, a hug or a smile
helping me deal with fear.
And yet, I don’t think you know
just how much you play a part,
in my constant struggle to know myself
and find what’s in my heart.
The hand you offer if I need to hold on.
The ear you gladly lend.
The words of comfort and gentle advice
have all helped me to mend.
The respect I have for you runs deep.
I am so glad our lives have touched.
You show me who I will, who I want, to be
by offering so much.
THE MUSIC OF LIFE
Inside each of us there plays a tune
It is born of our heart and sung by our spirit.
Sometime the melody plays loud and strong
Other times it is soft and delicate in it’s strain.
But the song is written by us alone.
Only we control it’s tempo
Only we decide it’s rhythm.
Never doubt what exists within you.
Never doubt that the music is there.
Your song is meant for you alone.
Others can not silence what the soul has born.
Sing your melody strong.
Dance the rhythm of your own spirit.
Hear the music of your own heart
and never doubt it’s music.
When the heart sings and the spirit soars,
the music of life is complete.
