Seasons change,
friends move away,
And life goes on
from day to day.
Flowers fade and
streams go dry
And many times
we wonder why.

Yet we can
always be assured,
Because God tells us
in his Word,
That unlike changes
in the weather
Love goes on and
lasts forever.

in my dreams we walk side by side
laughing, talking sharing that special thing that we always did.
do you ever have those dreams as well?

you walk my thoughts once again, I knew you would, for you cannot leave alone. I will always love and I will always believe and maybe that is what scares you, for I have always spoken the truth, I have always given all wrong.that is in me, and you know that you cannot do that. You use excuses, but never are you truthful with yourself, and until that moment comes you shall always walk my thoughts and wonder at what the words mean, you will twist them to meet your own thoughts, and you will be

I opened the blinds today, to look out upon the day. I saw the first Robin of the spring, and indication that life cycles, but also that new beginnings happen all the time, and that maybe there is a reason, for things dying, for leaving and returning. Is it to keep our life interesting, to defeat the boredom that may happen? My thought to ponder this day.

on sticklike legs they move, hopping across the yard, appearing not to have a worry or a care, but in reality the birds that grant us their beauty have the same fears as we do, for food is not always there, and the warmth we all desire is often lost.

As I watched the first Robin of the Spring dance across my yard, I recalled how fragile life is and how we must treasure what we have while we have it because tomorrow it may be gone.

Spring has sprung!

Somehow it doesn't seem like spring
with the trees dressed in crystal ice
Snow upon the ground and the cold wind.

I look again and I see the Jays and Chickadees
The Brilliant red of the Cardinals
and of course the peaceful Mourning Doves

Yes Spring has sprung!
soon the barren tree will sprout new leaves
the ground will turn green

I will look again
and wonder at the rapid changes,
In a Blink of an eye it will be all gone
