Think Of Those That Love You

If someone should hurt you
and say a thing unkind,
Remember what I write you,
and keep these thoughts in mind.

For everyone that makes you cry,
there are three who make you smile.
And a smile will last a long, long time,
but a tear just a little while.

Don't let someone who hates the world
cause you to hate it too.
Behind the clouds is a golden sun,
and a sky that's full of blue.

If someone said a thing that's cruel,
don't let it get to you,
Your achievements are greatly numbered,
and your faults are very few.

So if a certain person should act a certain way,
Think of those who love you and don't let it spoil your day.

sometimes I find I'm so discontent with things, and yet I feel as though I am so helpless in changing them so that once again I can find that inner peace. Sometimes I think maybe I prevent myself from finding it because I have learned from experience every time I have been able to be totally content with life, it is so painful when it is destroyed.

if I could dry my tears I would
if I could try my fears I should

What worries you masters you.

I wonder what I want
Life to be the hills of new adventure
excitement with each breath
joys and sorrows mixed into tolerable equations
a winding road of unknowns
smiles and tears jointly dispersed
I wonder what I want?

Where do the tears come from?

1998

A tender touch
such a soft caress
brushed the hair from my check

I looked up to see who was there
but in the darkness I could not see
who had shared their spirit

I sensed them staring
searching my face
looking for answers

When no words were uttered to express the thought
I felt there was no need
to say the things my heart felt

I felt the feather brush of his trembling lips
the barely leashed passion
as I surrendered my body to his.

Then I awoke to find it all a dream

Delay not; swift the flight of fortune's greatest favours.
