~~ Wasted Dreams ~~

I dream of the touch of your lips,
Your fingers caressing my cheek,
Your strong arms holding me close
Making my body feel weak.

I dream of a field full of flowers
Where once we made love in the sun,
The memory still lingers within me
It's as if life has just begun.

The dream seems to go on forever,
Our bodies becoming entwined,
Two hearts are beating as one,
I'm in Heaven and it's so divine.

How quickly I wake from my sleep
And remember you're no longer here,
The love that we shared is over
And I shed the first morning tear.

Maybe soon this heartache will ease
And I'll find a new lover one day,
Then at last I'll forgive you for leaving
And wasted dreams will all fade away.

~~ Guardian Angel ~~



On the day that we are born an angel comes to earth;
She lingers for awhile until the timing of our birth;
Then gracefully she flies on angel wings so light
And goes back up to Heaven, to return to us each night.

So as we live our lives and each day is at its end,
Remember your special angel from Heaven she'll descend.

She'll watch you as you sleep and meet with you in dreams,
She's the guardian of the night, flown down on moonlight beams.
So when you lay your head to rest, she'll stay until the morn,
Protecting you as promised on the day that you were born.

~~ Dream ~~



There is no better place to dream,
Than a little cottage by a stream,
With a garden full of hollyhocks,
Snow white lilies and scented stocks.

The sound of water trickling here,
Is pleasant music to the ear.
The birds are singing in the trees,
Branches swaying in the breeze,

It's here that all your worries cease
A place where there is quiet peace,
A time for stillness and reflection,
On our God and His perfection.

So when the pace of life gets fast,
And your worries seem too vast,
Picture the cottage by the stream,
Close your eyes and build a dream.

~~ Angel Whispers ~~


Last night I had a dream when an angel I did see,
She took my hand in hers and whispered "follow me".
I flew with her to Heaven on wings of purest white,
We danced amidst the stars that sparkled in the night.

On the pathway to the moon, I looked down upon the earth
And suddenly remembered, the moment of my birth.
The angel looked at me, her lips curved in a smile,
Knowing I'd recalled, she'd walked with me each mile.

She was my special angel; God's creation just for me,
To guide me in my life, and through eternity
I didn't want to leave her, as we stood in heavenly bliss,
But she whispered her goodbye and departed with a kiss.

Awaking in the morning, warm sunshine stroked my face
Had I just dreamt of my angel, or was it real - that heavenly place?
I felt such peace within me, it seemed so very clear,
Then I swear I heard her whisper, "You know I'm always here".

~~ Encounter ~~



So splendid in his uniform He stood there full of pride,
My heart was skipping beats, As I lingered by his side.
I was so aware of his presence Although we'd not really met,
Just an encounter on a station With a stranger I'd never forget.

Such an incredible feeling, I had for this soldier so proud,
Yet not one word was spoken, As we stood there in the crowd.

The train drew into the station, Rushing we were swept apart,
Yet the vision will stay in my mind A memory etched in my heart.
It's hard to explain just why We can be aware of a single face,
Maybe fate will draw us together again, Another time, in another place.

~~ God's Presence ~~



I see you in the evening and the darkness of the night.
You're with me in the morning, when all the world is bright.
I feel you in a breeze, like a tender warm embrace;
I feel you when a snowflake falls softly on my face.

I hear you when it thunders and the world seems at an end;
I hear you whisper softly, 'Don't fear I am your friend'.
I hear you in a bird song the humming of the bees.
Your voice is strong and vibrant in the waves of stormy seas.

I see, I feel, I hear you, you're there in all I do,
guiding and protecting, until my life is through.

~~ A WILLING HEART ~~



My heart is always willing Lord,
To serve You each new day;
To let Your light shine through me,
As I walk along life's way.

Give me words of wisdom,
To comfort those in need,
Let them see my love for You;
Feel Your presence in my deed.

As You guide me every day
Help me always to be kind.
And, when the day is over,
I'll have true peace of mind.

My heart is always willing Lord,
To serve with strength and grace,
And pray, when life has ended
I will see Your Heavenly face.

~~ Friendship ~~



True friendship is a gift
Shared by hearts that care;
As you travel on life's road,
A true friend is always there.

When happiness eludes you
And everything goes wrong,
She'll walk with you each mile
Though the road is hard and long.

Then when the storm clouds pass;
The sun comes out once more.
She'll celebrate your joy;
She knows what friends are for.

It is a gift from God
To have a friend that's true,
Who walks along life's path
Sharing each step with you.
