The special one

There’s something I find,
taking with you,
that is lost to me elsewhere.

The surety of your step,
beside mine.
The certainty in your voice,
when you speak to me
does make me feel great.

All these that take our friendship
steps beyond our dreams,
past surety and certainty
both, to a realm of faith.

All these things,
and more and more,
I find in being with you,
but… what do I do
I’m not able to speak the same in words

Life – the energy

Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind.
Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind…
Life can be blissful and happy and free…
Life can put beauty in the things that you see…
Life can place challenges right at your feet…
Life can make good of the hardships we meet…
Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin…
Life can reward those determined to win…
Life can be hurtful and not always fair…
Life can surround you with people who care…
Life clearly does offer its Up and its Downs…
Life’s days can bring you both smiles and frowns…
Life teaches us to take the good with the bad…
Life is a mixture of happy and sad…

So…

Take the Life that you have and give it your best…
Think positive, be happy let God do the rest…
Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet…
Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet…
To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall…
Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all…
Take the love that you’re given and return it with care…
Have faith that when needed it will always be there…
Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see…
Take life’s simple pleasures let them set your heart free…
The idea here is simply to even the score…
As you are met and faced with Life’s Tug of War
But hey that’s Life!
