SO ... WHAT DID I LEARN?
I learned that sometimes it is easier to share my soul with the whole world
Than it is to share it with someone intimate
I learned that aspiring toward my desires takes true commitment
And, a solid belief that my goals have legitimacy
I learned that asking for understanding is sometimes impossible
But, giving understanding is not
I learned that trying to prepare others for what lies ahead,
May confuse their innocence and thwart their progress
I learned that saying no to someone else, even when they object
Can help them learn to say no in their own lives, when need be
I learned that wanting and needing are hard to separate
But the difference is of great importance
I learned that I am stronger than I thought I was
And, that I need both strength and insight to function
I learned that I will not always feel positive
But that, my down days give me perspective
I learned that patience takes self-discipline
But, its rewards are immense
I learned that laughing after making a mistake
Does not erase its valuable lesson
I learned that letting someone else’s laughter reach my heart
Is just as rewarding as saying something to make them laugh
I learned that appreciation of others, of life and of challenges
Causes each day to be full and fruitful
I learned that it is good to expect better of one’s self
But, not so good to stress over petty details
I learned that living is not one huge moment of joy
It is the travel, and the unravel — the discovery of life,
That builds foundations for joy and for loving and living

A HEALING PRESCRIPTION
I gathered a thousand kisses and into this bottle they flew,
Then I wrapped it in some loving hugs —
prescribed especially for you:
No moving parts, no batteries; no monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, nontaxable, in fact, it's quite relaxable;
It can't be stolen, won't pollute, one size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy, but yields results enormously.
Relieves your tension and your stress; invigorates your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam, and elevates your self esteem!
Your circulation it corrects without unpleasant side effects
It is, I think, the perfect drug — may I prescribe, my friend:
(And, of course, fully returnable!)

THE HEART OF FRIENDSHIP
True friendship isn't seen with the eyes,
it is felt with the heart,
when there is trust, understanding,
loyalty, and sharing...
True friendship is a rare feeling,
but when it is found,
it has profound impact on
our well-being, strength, and character.
True friendship does not need
elaborate gifts or spectacular events
in order to be valuable or valued.
To ensure long-lasting
quality and satisfaction,
true friendship only needs
a few key ingredients:
Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding,
unsurpassed trust, deep and soulful secrets,
and endless sharing.
mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
can make a friendship last a lifetime!
This is just a thank you, my friend,
for all the wonderful and colorful
you've brought to my life!

TOUCH MY HEART
Touch my heart and I'll touch yours with a gentle word or two,
For kindness bears the sweetest fruit that makes our dreams come true.
Touch my life with tenderness and fill my cup with love;
Share my dreams as I share yours beyond the stars above.
Take my hand as I grow old and lead me when I'm blind;
Show me that you really care … pure love is hard to find.
Touch my heart and I'll touch yours a little more each day;
Then we shall both find happiness somewhere along the way.
Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
It is never glad about injustice,
But rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith,
Is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
