Poems, Songs, and Words of Wisdom

I found this blessing for happiness, peace & security written for all living beings, "visible or not visible, near or far away, already born or yet to be born" a blessing for anyone who is living, has yet to live or to die.
This is included for those who are unable to believe in a time where there could ever be happiness again. When you find this blessing, please read it once for yourself and you loved ones, and another time, for those searching and waiting to find their happiness.

A Blessing for Happiness

May everyone be happy and safe,
and may their hearts be filled with joy.
May all living beings live in Security and in Peace--
beings who are frail or strong,
tall or short, big or small,
visible or not visible, near or far away,
already born or yet to be born.
may all of them dwell in perfect tranquility.
Let no one do harm to anyone.
Let no one put the life of anyone in danger.
Let no one, out of anger or ill will,
wish anyone any harm.

If anyone has any poems or words of wisdom they would like to share, please feel free to do so.

"Someday"

I sit and hold your picture
As you looked so long ago.
I wonder, how would you look
Were you here with me today.
God had you in His plans that day
You were lifted from my arms.
But still, as days go passing by,
My eyes keep searching, everywhere.

My heart is still as broken
As it was that other day, and,
Though the years have passd and gone
I'll love you, each and every day.

And if the Lord gave me one wish
I wouldn't think, not for a second.
I'd ask to see your face, my son,
For just a single, fleeting minute.

You're locked up deep within my soul,
And etched into my heart.
And when the time is right, my son,
I'll once more fold you into my arms..........

Someday..........

Death is nothing at all

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away
into the next room

I am I,
and you are you:
whatever we were to each other,
that, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name
speak to me in the easy way
which you always used,
put no difference in your tone,
wear no forced air
of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we shared together.
let my name ever be
the household word that it always was.
let it be spoken without effect,
without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all
that it ever meant.
it is the same as it ever was.
there is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.

All is well.

Henry Scott Holland
1847-1918

"May I Go?"
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days and endless nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond, and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.
I want to go, I really do; it's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid, because I see your tears.
I'll not be far, I promise that, and hope you'll always know,
That my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me. You know I love you too,
And that's why it's hard to say goodbye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me, you'll let me go today.

"Footprints On Your Heart"

Some people

Come into our lives

And quickly go.

Some people move

Our souls to dance.

They awaken us to

New understanding

With the passing whisper

Of their wisdom.

Some people make

The sky more beautiful

To gaze upon.

They stay in our lives

For awhile,

Leave footprints on

Our hearts . . .

. . . And we are never,

Ever the same.

Other things may change us but we being and end with family.

Kenny Chesney
"It's Never Easy To Say Goodbye"

Jimmy climbs on board of that old yellow bus
Sure looks big in his little eyes
His mama waves
As the tears kick up the dust
It's never easy to say goodbye
Julie Ray in her pearl white wedding gown
Has found her wings and it's time to fly
It's all her dad to keep from breakin' down
It's never easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy
To ever say goodbye
It ain't easy
Lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me
We'll meet again
By and by
If not here
Somewhere up above

I've had friends
That I lost along the way
They've been called on down the line
Though their time was short
I still think about them everyday
It ain't easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy
To ever say goodbye
It ain't easy
Lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me
We'll meet again
By and by
If not here
Somewhere up above

My time has come
To go our separate ways
And it's alright if you wanna cry
Though I know we'll meet again someday
It's never easy to say goodbye

It ain't easy
To ever say goodbye
It ain't easy
Lettin' go of the ones you love
But believe me
We'll meet again
By and by
If not here
Somewhere up above

If not here
Somewhere up above

Songwriter : POE

Her CD "Haunted" was in tribute to her father who had just passed away. Maybe that's why I feel for this CD so much.

Haunted

Come here

Pretty please
Can you tell me where are you?
You Won’t you say something?
I need to get my bearings
Almost,
Memories, shadows keep on changing
And I’m haunted
By the lives that I have loved
Connections I have hated
Haunted
By the lies that wove the web
Inside my haunted hell

Don’t cry

There’s always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves I frame
Please, I know it’s hard to believe
See a perfect forest through so many splintered trees
You and me,
And these shadows keep on changing
And I’m haunted
By the lives that I have loved
Connections I have hated
Haunted
By the promises I made
And others I have broken

I’m haunted
By the lies that wove the web
Inside my haunted hell

Please…
I’ll always want you
I’ll always need you
I’ll always love you
I will always miss you

Come here
Though I won’t say please
One more look at the ghost before I make it leave
Come here
I got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
And build a casket for my tears

I’m haunted
By the lives that I have loved

I’m haunted
By the hallways in this dining room
The echoes of me and you
Voices that can’t be still

from Christina Aguilera's "Hurt":

Some days I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide 'cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye
When it comes to this, oooh

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?

There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back

My Sweet Angel Baby

Ten little fingers
And ten little toes
A sweet little smile
And cute button nose

Giggles and coos
And sad little cries
A loving stare
Yawns and soft sighs

My love for you
Started out strong
And will continue on
For forever long

It makes me sad
To not get the chance
To see your sweet face
Or to watch you dance

I know you're playing
On top of the moon
You watch from above,
An angel too soon

I wanted to hold you
And raise you up
Watch you go from a bottle
To a big sippy cup

I wanted to rock you
Until you slept
And kiss away all
The tears that you wept

I longed to stare
Into your big bright eyes
And hold you at night
While we stared at the skies

But God took you to Heaven
Before we could meet
Before I could feel
The kick from your feet

I did not know you
As a boy or a girl
But a sweet little baby
Who made my heart swirl

I'll always wonder
If you had my smile
Or daddy's eyes
And cool sense of style

While you were growing
Would you like sports?
Would you be big and strong?
Would you be tall or short?

So many questions
I'll never have answered
Soccer player? Swimmer?
Cheerleader? Dancer?

The thought of you
Always being with me
Still lingers in my heart...
Just a little differently

Our time together
I feel was too short
And the pain that I bear
Is too strong to sort

But now you are safe
In God's loving arms
Where I trust he will keep you
Away from all harm

I wanted the chance
To raise you myself
To bandage your boo-boo's
And doctor your health

But since I cannot
Watch my precious one grow
I want you to remember
And to always know

That I'll never forget you
Not even maybe,
I'll meet you in Heaven
My sweet angel baby
