I'm sitting on the porch
Wind blowing through my hair
The ducks are frolicking in the pond
But I just can't seem to care.
Life goes on around me
I don't participate
I go through all the motions
But what I really do is wait.
I dream about the day
That you'll come home to me
Nothing else is important
Why can't people see?
I don't want to go out
I don't want to have fun
I don't want to do a thing
Until all is said and done.
They took you in the summer
Now fall is almost finished
Winter will be here very soon
And then the year will have diminished.
You have no idea how much I cry
I never let you know
It's so hard out here without you
But I'm not allowed to let it show.
I must pretend all is fine
Everyone thinks all's okay
But what I never ever tell them
Is that I cry for you every day.
Sometimes at night,
when I lay down to sleep,
I embrace myself,
I start to think ...
Then I imagine
that you lie beside me ...
hugs and kisses
all over my body.
I wish you
could really be here,
just to whisper,
"I love you," in my ear.
I would turn around and say,
"I love you, too."
But will it ever be true?
So I turn around
and I wonder some more,
still wanting your embrace,
so I close my eyes and picture your face.
I fall asleep dreaming of you.
In my dream it seems so true.
It's as if I can really feel
your kisses against my lips ...
Then my eyes pop open
and you're nowhere to be seen,
And I feel so lonely
once AGAIN !!!
What has happened is never spoken
Everything around me has been broken
There's no words, just silence.
Hate, but no violence
Sadness, without tears
Humans, without fears.
When will the ground break?
Where is the open gate?
Slowly, the darkness creeps
But still, no one weeps.
All are withering
Hearts are shriveling.
This world has grown cold
There's no one left to hold.
I fear that I too will join them soon
Just when the light fades from the moon.
My beloved has been turned into a dove
And now I know what becomes of this world,
Without his love.
My love is like the sun that warms me when I am cold,
And like the cool water of the brook that refreshes me.
My love knows the secret pleasures of my soul,
And delights with me in fulfilling them.
Who is my love but the soul of my soul,
And the reason for every beat of my heart.
Who fills me with life in the joy of her presence,
And returns to me more than I have given.
Come to me, my love, I die without you.
Each day is eternity, waiting for your touch.
Remove the tears from my eyes and the ache in my heart,
Be closer than my breath, all my days, all my nights.
The meaning of being special,
is found in a person like you.
A friend who is so thoughtful,
in everything they say and do.
A person who betters my life,
by being a part of it each day.
Someone who touches my heart,
in a special, and unique way.
A person who's always giving,
and willing to help all they can.
Who truly gives from their heart,
showing they care for who I am.
This friend I have found in you,
is as special as one could be.
And I am so blessed in my life,
that you've been a friend to me.
To the one who gave me life
I can give nothing but love
To the star so full of light
to the one sent from up above.
Thank you for the kindness
for everything you do
thank you for the happiness
thanks for seeing me through.
I love you more than anything
I'll love you to the end
you are my mother first
then my very best friend.
It is unusual what we share
everything I do you know,
every beautiful quality
you have in you, I try to show.
Not often enough do I tell you
how much you mean to me
Not often enough do I show you
how your love set me free
To live forever and always
Is what I wish for you.
A long life ever-lasting
for one so sacred and true
You are my special angel
who I always find comfort in
whether life is in a shambles
whether I lose or whether I win
To the one who gave me life,
I can give nothing but love
to the one who genuinely is,
sent from heaven above
I miss you
It hurts to think of everything we went through
I wish you could see my heart
I hate that we're apart
I cry for your touch
Baby I miss you so much
You've changed into someone I don't know
Remember when you told me you'd never let go?
What happened between you and I?
I remember the nights we'd lay there and look at the sky
The point is I miss you
And I want to kiss you
I wish I could rewind time
And make you mine
But theres no way of getting you back
And now your just one thing in life that I lack
I don't know why things are like this
I just want to tell you that it's you that I really miss.
You were on my mind when I woke up this morning
remembering your smile
I guess the next time I'll see your face
will take a little while
I was remembering your arms around me
love the way they always feel warm
with you by my side
I completely feel no harm
I was remembering your voice
makes my heart skip a beat
but without you baby
my whole body's weak.
I was remembering our times
the good and the bad
the funny times when you cheered me up
and especially the sad
remembering your eyes
how they always meet mine
remembering all the little things you do
to make my life worthwhile
I was wondering when we'll be together
just us two
I guess I'm missing you more than I usually do.
I remember how it used to be
when nothing else mattered but you and me
music, country roads, and future dreams.
I miss you, I wish you could see ...
Although you are here, I miss you and me.
I remember when you said how happy I made you
and you really meant it... but now,
it's just a phrase you say without thinking.
I miss those days when you'd call just to say "hi"
or "I love you"... the days it was so hard
just to say good-bye for a while.
I remember how wonderful it felt the first time
you held me in your arms and how after all those
years you still made my heart melt.
I miss the old you and the old me
The old us that could just sit and talk for hours
and never run out of things to say.
I remember when time simply stood still
when in each other's arms is the only place
we wanted to be... forever.
I miss us as I remember how it used to be ...
when nothing else mattered but you and me.
You're always on my mind, day and night
When I think of you, all feels so right
Need to have you, need to hold you
And tell you that I love you.
My dear, I don't want to see us apart
This separation just tears away my heart
I miss you, oh, I really miss you
Will need you more and more each day
I know I cannot live without you
I miss you, more than words can say.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
A brand new day is dawning
And as it gets its start,
I want you know I am thinking
Of you with warmth in my heart.
I hope your birthday is special
No one deserves it more than you!
You are such a kindhearted person,
It shows in everything that you do.
So, have a perfect morning
And an even lovelier day...
May happiness surround you
Always.... not just for today!
I was sitting here thinking
of the words I want to say,
but they just wouldn't come out right
so I found a different way
I got a piece of paper
and I wrote this poem for you,
but there's no way to thank you
for everything you do
For always being nice to me
and staying by my side,
for helping fix my problems
and never leaving me behind
For accepting my thoughts and feelings,
though you do not understand,
for never giving up on me
and being my best friend
For making me laugh
and letting me cry
and saying you'd miss me
if I were to die
Everything you mean to me
you could never know
In all the ways you've changed my life
I could never show
The way you take care of me,
you're my shining star
and though it's so incredible
that's just the way you are
Before I get too mushy
it's time for me to go,
but before I leave this ink-filled page
there's one thing you should know
As long as we are living,
no matter when or where,
if you ever need me
just call and I'll be there
I'll climb a thousand mountains
and swim a thousand seas
anything to be there
'cause you've been there for me
You've been there for me
through the good times and bad
I know I can count on you
to be there when I'm sad
Life without you
just wouldn't be right
I wouldn't be able to get through
each day and night
When I've had a bad day
I know that you're only a call away
When life takes that crazy turn
You are always there to help me learn
We've had so many good times together
I know we'll be best friends forever
No matter where we are
I know we'll never be too far
You're my idol, my sister, my friend
We'll be together till the end
Even when we're old and gray
You'll be here still,
to help me get on my way
Two hands to hold onto forever,
Two arms to be embraced by eternally,
Two eyes to gaze into for always,
Two lips to kiss so passionately.
Two souls fused by commitment,
Two names written in the stars above,
Two lives intertwined by God,
Two hearts joined by the purest of love.
I feel sometimes like I've truly lost my way
At times it's hard to make it through the day
When I have the chance to sit and think
I stare ahead and never stop to blink
My heart is loudly crying out for you
My soul is crying out for love so true
I don't know how I've made it this long
I don't know how I've stayed so strong.
I guess I am waiting for the day
When all of my pain will go away
It's been so hard without you by my side
Losing you took away so much of my pride
You are part of me, a piece of my soul
And until you find me, I will never be whole.
I am so sorry that I let you go
And hope one day that you will know
That all I wanted was the best for you
Even though it's torn my world in two
The only reason I am still alive
Is the hope that you'll be by my side
I want you to know wherever you are
That even if the distance is far
You are always here in my heart and soul
I'm leaving this is God's control.
One day he'll send you back to me
One day my heart will again be free
My love for you will never end
When you're back, my heart will mend
Just know a daughters love is forever
Even if we are not together.
My heart aches when I talk to you
My heart aches when I don't hear from you
My heart aches when I long for you.
I don't know why
You've taken over my thoughts
I can't explain
You're still a stranger
I want you close by
I miss your embrace
Holding you close
My heart aches
I miss you!
Because of you I have a reason to smile.
Wanted to see you but you said you'd be away for a while.
When will you come back to me?
So we can hold each other while we sleep?
I think of you every night.
Wishing I can hold you tight.
You're my yum yum and I'm your bumble bee.
No matter what happend in my heart is where you'll be.
The day you come back to me
Promise me you will never leave.
At this time of year it is patently clear
That the males are the ones who are blest.
Thoughts like "goodwill to men" we hear time and again
And we find them quite hard to digest.
As we women all know, men think they run the show,
And sometimes we allow them this pause.
But it gets on our nerves, like too many hors d'oeuvres
When we want to get at the main course.
Many times out of mind the same problem we find,
Leaving plans to the menfolk is risky.
Christmas spirit they think is some kind of a drink,
Such as vodka, Baccardi, or whiskey.
Since we carry the load, men keep out of our road,
We are ready and willing and able.
For it's perfectly clear, that the stuffed turkeys here
Are not always confined to the table.
The traditional way is now rather passe,
Lets give credit, where credit is due.
Then you'll see, man or boy, in return you'll enjoy
The fruits of our goodwill to you.
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile
Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun
Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day
Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay
And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best
There are times only when a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's Love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.
There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.
For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above...
She looked the same every day
I remember from when I’m young
A few lines and wrinkles there,
but still my beautiful mum.
She’s always been so wise,
she’s always been so strong
She’s always been so stubborn
and occasionally she’s wrong
My mum is sure not perfect,
as I sure I am not much too
But mum’s know you inside out
and advised you as you grew.
Now days have come and time has passed
where mum is growing weak
And we don’t know the words to help
and the right words to speak
For losing mum’s there is no book
or instructions what to say
I hope I say the words right
to help her on her way.
For I love you mum, you are my world
I thank you with all my heart
I don’t know why you have to go
and why we have to part
But know you’re loved and cherished
and we’re all here for you
And know you’re going to a place
where people love you too
I can't promise you a life of sunshine;
I can't promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I can't promise you an easy pathway
Which leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that's ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.
Yes, I'll Marry You.
You are the one who I always think,
I even see your face everytime I blink.
I really don't know why am I acting like this,
All I know that it is you who I miss.
When I think about you, my eyes seemed to glow,
When I dream of you, I hoped for no tomorrow.
To be with you right now is what I've wished
'Coz it is really you whom my heart has missed.
I believe that we will be together sooner or later.
How I hope that the time and day will pass faster
So that I'll be with you and hug you tight,
And never let go of you with all my might.
'Coz I really miss you and boy that is true.
Please come home,
I miss you so.
More then you could ever know.
Things have changed,
Since you've been gone.
No one to talk to
And no shoulder to cry on.
Our family and your friends
We all cried so much.
We miss you and your laugh
You're voice and soft touch.
I miss you and your smile.
I could add to this list,
Of everything I miss,
But there's no end, it doesn't exist.
I wish I could see you,
Just one last chance,
To see you smile,
Even if its just a glance.
I wish I could tell you
How much you meant to me
Just one last time,
Before you were set free.
Your life was too short
You had so much to live for
You were just eighteen,
And had places to explore.
Mom isn't the same
Without you in her life.
The emptiness in her eyes
Contains so much pain and strife.
Daddy has been drinking
He tries to forget,
What happened that day.
He drinks and smokes cigarettes.
It doesn't work though,
He just can't forget you.
He misses you so much,
And I do too.
Our brother is so sad
He can't cope with the pain.
A place in his heart,
Is where you'll always remain.
My sister, and your twin,
Still remains silent.
She lost her other half,
And seems so angry and violent
As for me, you're my idol
I just don't understand.
Why did you have to leave
Is it what God planned?
You have a place in my heart
I love you now, I love you still
I always have
And always will
I admire your strength
I admire your smile
I admire how you made
So many lives worthwhile.
The last breath you took,
You had a smile on your face.
And with that, I thank God
You're in a better place.
When I lay and think, in my bed at night,
the day you'll arrive, seems nowhere in sight.
I toss and I turn, dreaming of you,
opening my eye's... checking if my dream came true.
It didn't, again, and a tear starts to roll,
weeping quietly... my pillow I hold.
Many sleepless nights I've prayed for you, my love.
God touched my soul from heaven above
He's answered my prayers for my bride to be.
I've never felt this lucky, God did this for me.
That's a question I asked each and every night.
He must think your special, Joy, and I know he's right.
No other has made me feel so complete,
my whole life was lived, just so we could meet.
All these thoughts and more going through my head.
I fall asleep not worrying, but dreaming of you... instead.
I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look,
And that is when I realize that these names are a part
Not of the book they are writte in, but really f my heart
For each name stands for someone who has cossed my path sometime,
And in the meeting they've become the rhythm in each rhyme
And while it sounds fantastic for me to make this claim,
I really feel that I'm composed of each remembered name
And while you may not be aware of any special link
Just meeting you has changed my life a lot more than you think
For once I've met somebody, the years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant word or of a friendly face
So never think my Christmas cards are just a mere routine
Of names upon a Christmas list, forgotten in between,
For when I send a Christmas card that is addressed to you,
It is because you're on the list that I'm indebted to
For I am but a total of the many folks I've met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget
And whether I have known you for many years or few,
In some ways you have a part in shaping things I do
And every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The best gifts life can offer is meeting folks like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever endures
Leave its richest blessings in the hearts of you and yours
A friend is one who stands to share
Your every touch of grief and care
He comes by chance, but stays by choice
Your praises he is quick to voice
No grievous fault or passing whim
Can make an enemy of him
And though your need be great or small
His strength is yours throughout it all
No matter where your path may turn
Your welfare is his chief concern
No matter what your dream may be
He prays your triumph soon to see
There is no wish your tongue can tell
But what it is your friend's as well
The life of him who has a friend
Is double-guarded to the end.
For all the times you've been there
from the day I was born
You've always gave me courage
to do as I perform
You call to say hello
you send me notes to say you care
And when we are together
a special momentis shared
Forthe many things you've done
for all the times ou were there
Helps me to know deep down
how much you really care
Even though I might not say it,
I really appreciate all you do
So powerfully blessed is how I feel
for having a mother like you.
You've given me a reason
For smiling once again,
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams
and you've become my closest friend.
You've shared your heartfelt secrets
And your trust you've given me,
You showed me how to feel again
To laugh, and love, and see.
If life should end tomorrow
And from this world I should part,
I shall be forever young
For you have touched my heart
