Today is a very special day for you.
As is should be for us all.
So many have failed to see today.
And because of that, I am sad.
A new day brings a chance for new beginnings.
It also brings forgiveness where needed.
Each new day brings a new start.
A day filled with hope and inspiration.
Please don't let it slip away.
Enjoy today as it was meant to be.
Walk proudly through your new day.
See everything once again, like it was the first time.
Welcome this new day, as it welcomes you.
When you step into today, bring your smile.
Maybe someone could use it.
Don't be afraid to share today.
That is what each day is for.
Today is not just any day, to be passed through.
Today is a very special day.
A day I give thanks for having your friendship.
Someone I am so proud to share today with.

Went to mom's for a bit today. It made Nelson happy to go see grandma. Got a headache that won't seem to go away, hopefully I can keep it below the migraine threshold so that I can be somewhat functional, but I'm beginning to doubt that is going to happen.

2004

it seems that in the moment the days are suspended in time but in hindsight they have passed within a blink of an eye leaving only memories and thoughts of what could of been, what might have been and what happened

2003

As changes are taking place the pace is so fast that I'm watching it pass me by, looking both directions and trying to decide when to take the next step into the future, embracing the changes, but yet fearful of what they may result in, the move, the change the time to move forward, but yet longing for something, someone to share it with and finding no one, looking for someone to lean on, to give encouragement, to help me through the next few weeks.

2002

just wasting the moments, making the days pass until they are gone, a surprise in the e-mail today, but a heartache as well, wondering when it will finally be the last, where will it end, in whose place and whose heart does one grace?

1999

Love a lost and forgotten feeling
hidden beneath the abuse and the lies
longing for it's return
in arms that forever severer the past ties

1998

My Heart Belongs to you
from the moment we met I knew
We shared so much in those hours
We gave to one another what we had no other

We both knew it was wrong
but a soaring heart can not stop
We challenged the pain and knew it would hurt
When we said our final good-bye

Now your in your world
and I'm still stuck in mine
Occasionally you'll stop by to just say hi
We agreed and that is fine

But I'm always going to love you
and wished it was another time
And when your birthday comes you know I'm there
and at Christmas maybe a breath of air.

1997

Solvency is entirely a matter of temperament and not of income.
