FOR MY LOVED MOTHER

Méng léiw Mamm †1989

M is for the million things she gave me
O means only that she's growing old
T is for the tears were shed to save me
H is for her heart of purest gold
E is for her eyes with love-light shining
R means right and right she'll always be

Put them all together they spell "MOTHER"
A word that means the world to me
♥~ The whole world to me. ~ ♥

NO HELP FOR THAT

There is a place in the heart
that will never be filled
A space
And even during the
Best moments
And
The greatest
Times
We will know it
We will know it
More than
Ever
There is a place in the heart that
Will never be filled
And
We will wait
And
Wait
In that space

Charles Bukowski

PRICELESS

Life holds so many priceless things
The falling rain- the wind that sings
Each star on a high- a big full moon
And sunbeams dancing in your room

The river as it rushes on
A sunset when day is gone
No wealth can buy a mountain tall
These priceless things belong to all

An autumn tree lends beauty rare
With leaves piled deep most everywhere
As nature wears a glowing smile
To make each day a day worthwhile

Could anything be quite as dear
As laughing children that we hear
The gift of friendship that is ours
The miracle of growing flowers

Each magic moment- treasured time
These priceless gifts are yours and mine

WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME

When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see.
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,

And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.

But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,

He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew.

MY MOTHER'S GARDEN

My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it's start.

She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...

And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough--
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong--
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me

MAY YOU ALWAYS FEEL LOVED

May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have known

and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life
facing each new situation
with optimism and courage.

Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there
even when you feel most alone.

May you discover enough goodness in others
to believe in a world of peace.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch, a warm smile,
be yours every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.

Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those who know hate,
and let that love embrace you
as you go into the world.

May the teaching of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.

Remember, those whose lives you have touched
and who have touched yours are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less
than you would have wished.

May you not become too concerned
with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value
on the goodness in your heart.

Find time in each day to see the beauty
and love in the world around you.
Realize that each person has limitless abilities,
but each of us is different in our own way.

What you may feel you lack in one regard
may be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
may become one of your strengths in the future

May you see your future as one filled with promise
and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.

May you find enough inner strength
to determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent on another's judgments
of your accomplishments.

Most of all, May you always feel loved.
