"Dear Old Doc"

Dear old Doc is now dust in a box
A quiet man in life and smart as a fox.

Tho' he felt himself dumb he was smart as they come
Doc had humility never he boasted of the job he had done.

As a fox unlike many men
He stayed with his brood right to the end.

A logger at once both Mother and Father
He gave his best to his Sons and Daughters.

I can honestly scratch my head and say
Old Doc Watson was all around best in our day.

Doc's last words given with a gasp,
Please give me a beer in a glass
in the other hand a beautiful lass.

"To the River"

it will take you away
the waves
the rocks
the shore
the bay
if the river swallows you up
you'll find yourself in a place that is abrupt
you'll slam around, hit her walls
but eventually, you are going to fall
you'll slam so hard, you can't see straight
the river then takes you to heavens gate
you enter, quite slowly, then you pause,
because there stands the man who wrote all the laws
he greets you now with open arms
you'll feel welcome by his natural charm
there is no turning back ever again
for now you know, you'e reached lifes end
Is it the end?
Only you can tell
For we just think, you are resting well.

" I had a dream "

an awesome dream
About a mermaid queen
she took me places, I'd never seen

We swam through oceans
and rivers and more
Till we came to rest
on a sandy shore

What a wonderful life I thought
waking up I dread
And opened my eyes
laying silently in bed

To dream of the deep
to swim in the dark
So close in my thoughts
so deep in my heart

Composed by a good friend .. Sue.

"Our Earth and Waters". Yes I said Our's !!!
Yours', Hers', His, and mine ... OUR'S.

" Love Is "

Knowing that the other person will always
be with you regardless of what happens,
and always missing the other person when
they are away, but remaining near
in heart at all times.
"Love is the source of security"

"Love is"
An understanding that is so complete that
you feel as if you are part of the other person,
accepting the other person the way they are
and not trying to change them to be something
"Love is the source of unity"

"Love is"
The freedom to pursue your own desires
while sharing your experiences with the
other person, for the growth of one individual
along side the other individual make each
person a different individual.
"Love is the source of success"

"Love is"
Giving and talking in a daily situation being
patient with each other's needs and desires.
"Love is the source of sharing"

"Love is"
The excitement of planing things together,
the excitement of doing things together,
"Love is the source of the future"

"Love is"
The fury of the storm the calm in a rainbow,
"Love is the source of passion"
"Love is the source of life it's self" !

Written by a good friend ..Lynda.

"Never - Ever"

In this lonely cold world today
love is so scarce and so far away,
and my heart gets so confused
Cause I know I will
Never~ Ever love Again because
of you.

For all the times that you have
let me down I felt there
was no love for me, to be found
I will Never~ Ever let this happen

Well it is not the end for me
there will be a time for my heart
to mend And I will love whom
ever until the end of me ,
And Never~ Ever hurt again.

I will never~ ever , let a broken
heart run my life nor take away
from me a chance for a brand new start,
I will never~ ever let it make me
fall apart never~ ever let the pain
break my heart.

I know it will be hard but I'll
open up let down this silly guard
I owe it to myself to take
it from the start and try to love
again and Never~ Ever look back
at you again.

When that time comes when I
must change whats in my past
I will never~ ever take the blame
nor never ~ever will I be ashamed,
I'll throw away all my fears and
I won't be afraid for I will always
find another one I love on another
day and I will never~ ever be alone.

I know that I will not be sorry
but I will be strong because being
with out love forever is too long
I will not live in pain nor will I
go insane Never~ Ever will I call
Your Name.

After a while you learn
the subtle difference
between holding a hand
and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love
doesn't mean leaning
and company doesn't mean security.

And you begin to learn that
kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats
with your head up and your eyes open,
with the grace of an adult,
not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build
all your roads on today
because tomorrow's ground is
too uncertain for plans.

After a while you will learn
that even sunshine
burns if you get too much.

So plant your own garden
and decorate your own soul,
instead of waiting for
someone to bring you flowers.

And you will learn that
you really can endure...
that you really are strong.

And YOU REALLY DO have worth.
