A Childhood Dream...

When I was a young girl,
I used to dream about
the man I'd fall in love with.
I thought of him as someone
who would have a gentle voice,
beautiful eyes,
strong arms,
and a caring nature.
He'd be warm,
and considerate,
and playful.

My fondest childhood dream
came true.
I met the man of my dreams,
the day I met you.
Now that sweet dream has been
replaced by another,
spending every day
of my life with you.
It gives me comfort to know
that the man of my dreams
will be beside
me always to make
each day more beautiful
than the day before.

Lifetime of Love...

I offer you:
my commitment,
my time,
my hope for the future,
a shoulder to cry on,
a smile to lift you up,
an arm to give you strength,
shelter from all harm,
and a kiss to inspire you.
I offer you my heart
and all I have to give.
I offer you a
lifetime of love.

I Need You...

There were times when
I needed your strength
in order to walk.

There were times when
I needed your vision
in order to see myself.

There were times when
I needed your light
in order to find my dreams.

There were times when
I needed your love,
and you pulled me so close
that I could feel
the warmth of your heart.

And do you know what?
There will never be a time
when I don't need you,
because you are the one
that I'll always love.

The One I Love...

If we could start
all over again,
I wouldn't change a thing,
for even the tears we've shared
have brought us closer.
Every day,
I think about
how fortunate I am
to have you in my life.
I can't express enough
how much I appreciate
and cherish you.
I only hope that you
hold me as dear,
and think of me
as the one you
always wanted,
because you are the one
that I'll always love.

Beautiful Life

Life is beautiful when you are young
Like a song waiting to be sung
Days are bright and nights are warm
Every sunset is a symbol of charm

Life is beautiful when you have dreams
Wild and audacious, they give you wings
Leading you on when you are lost
Holding your hand when you need it most

Life is beautiful when you are in love
A blessing so kind from the world above
Even a smile can ease all the pains
With the sweetness of unspoken words
When your dreams are lost, your heart broken
And your youthful spirits are stolen
Years will give you lessons how to cope

Life is beautiful because there is hope
Meaningless days make meaningful years
With joyful applause and painful tears
So passionate, yet desperate in every season

Life is beautiful without a reason.

You and God...

People are often unreasonable,
irrational, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse
you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere
people may deceive you;
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating
others could destroy overnight;
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
some may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

--Mother Teresa

Don't Lose Hope...

Don't Lose Hope...

If spring follows
if a rainbow follows
the storm,
if morning follows
the night,
then happiness must
follow sorrow.

Don't lose hope.
Things will get better!
