    Default 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.

    "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.

    "To dream is to be alive and to catch a dream, no matter how briefly, is enough to satisfy a thousand lifetimes."

    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 <3
