SOMEDAY NEVER COMES
" SOMEDAY WHEN..."
Another season passing, passing in time
The dreams so clear, seems so long ago
Fading in Spring, and more with each Fall.
A husband, a wife ... a child and then two.
Another Winter, building a bike for under the tree,
Thoughts of taxes, they soon will be due,
Another new year, as holidays draw nearer.
Each new Spring seems warmer than last,
Seems the grass in the yard grows far too fast.
There's still time enough for those dreams long ago
Someday when the kids are all grown,
Someday when they are out on their own.
Another year ... another ... or two ...
Dreams, the life of our sleep,
Fleeting thoughts ... a long ago wish.
Then one day, another Spring ...
A smile, a thought ... dreams from the past.
Someday when ... my children are grown up,
I'll quit this job, my life my own ...
I'll see the world ... I remember when.
Our hearts, ageless they know of no bounds,
Until one day, the dreams we would live
Are now out of reach ... we ran out of time.
They never got past "Someday When"
Having been replaced instead of with,
"What could have been."
...So dreams they stay inside of our hearts,
Turned into just wishes, past "Wishes" on stars.
We thought we had time, as they most always began
With the simple notion of ... "Someday When."
An untouchable place "Someday When"
Today is as good as any day can be ...
To live the beginning of a least one of those dreams.
Through the warm spring days, Summer then Fall,
Then on through the Winter ... time passes slow.
Until one day, the direction we look,
Is not of the future, but a place of the past.
A time comes to all, when all we will have
Are the memories of love, and the lives we have lived
Or ... dreams turned to wishes wished on the stars
Waiting for tomorrows for our dreams to come true.
Dreams that began with "Someday When"...
And stayed there ... empty place unfulfilled.
"Tomorrow" never comes when our dreams
"Always" begin with "Someday When."
That place in our hearts, where time never ends
A place where, "When" sleeps, if never begins.
... Don't Wait For Tomorrow ...

NO STRINGS ATTACHED
I've nothing else to offer,
So, to you, it's love I'll send,
It's nothing that I borrowed,
And it's nothing that I'd lend.
It has no dollar value,
And it can't be overused;
It isn't fragile, so it can't break,
Though, often it's abused.
I've given it to others,
But each time it's unique,
Its meaning's always different;
It depends on what you seek.
It's something you can store away
To feel when you're in need,
But never is it on display;
Its beauty can't be seen.
I'm giving it "no strings attached,"
No costly warranty;
This love that I am sending
Has a lifetime guarantee.

Tree of Life
Be true to yourself
Trust your instincts
Learn from experience
Read between the lines
Don't repeat mistakes
Do things differently!
Don't make assumptions
Don't jump to conclusions
Don't take things personally
Accept what comes to you each day
Open your eyes--beauty surrounds you
Give without expecting anything in return
Ask for advice but make your own decisions
Stuff happens--it's your response that counts
There is a reason for everything that happens
When you feel defensive, examine what you fear
You must do what you think you cannot
Friends are precious
Attitude is everything
Life is short--overcome your fears!

Anything is Possible
If there was ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that's your inspiration,
something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
Because with an idea,
determination, and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect,
and your heart, guide you.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

When you smile the whole world smiles with you.....
If at times you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial
Above the clouds there's a bright blue sky
So make your tears a smile.
As you travel on life's way
With its many ups and downs
Remember its quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
Among the worlds expensive things
A smile is very cheap
And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.
Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.
So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.
Because you smiled you made me smile.........
