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 and understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
She 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 eyes, for all my life,I'd always thought,I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,so much left yet to do.It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,I'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile, but then I fully realized, that this would never be for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things,I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I didn't my heart was filled with sorrow, but when I walked through Heaven's gate I felt so much at home,when God looked down and smiled at me from his great and golden throne.
He said "This is eternity, and all I've promised you,Today your life on
earth is past,but here life starts a new.
I promise no tomorrow, for today will always last, and since each days' the same way here, there's no longing for the past,You have been so faithful, so trusting, and so true. Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do ,but you have been forgiven and now at last your free, so won't you come and take my hand and share your life with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,don' t think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.

this is dedicated to X-Pitcher(Dean)..RIP dear friend..you will be so missed by us all..

NIGHTMARES SHOULD REST‏
YEARS OF HAUNTING THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER RESIDED
OVERCAME THROUGH THOUGHT ,PUT ASIDE INTO THE OUTER PLACE, NO LONGER AT THE BESIDE.
SERIOUS YES, BUT NOT A GREAT BURDEN WITH WEIGHT UPON MY CHEST
FLINCHING,CRINGING,OVERWHELMIN G INTENSITY , NEW FOUND FREEDOM
SIMPLE FURY SUBSIDED,.

OVER CAME THE WEIGHT, MY INTERNAL TWITCH,NO LONGER A SNARLING
GRINCH.
DAILY DEMEANOR,MOVING FORWARD WITH A LAUGHING THOUGHT OF NEEDLESS WASTED NIGHTS.
WHY ALL THE SWEAT ,MEANINGLESS MIND GAMES NEVER GIVING AN INCH
KNOWING HONESTY,INTEGRITY SEEMED ALMOST RIGHTEOUS, MADE SIMPLE WITH ALL THE NEW INCITES .

WHY IF EVER WOULD THEY SEEK TO RETURN TO SUCH STRENGTH
A PASSING DAY LEADS INTO A NIGHT ,MY MEMORY'S FORGIVEN BUT NOT FORGOTTEN,A PEACEFUL PIECE & PLACE COULD EASILY BE REPLACED
WHAT MATTER MAY HAVE EVOLVED TO BRING TO BRING FURY BACK WITHIN ARMS LENGTH.
IS THE TIME COME AGAIN TO BATTLE WITH FEAR & FIRE,TRULY UNINVITED
EDGING SILENTLY BEHIND A SHADOW,MAKING AN APPEARANCE WITH NO REGARD FOR MY DISTASTE.

AGE,HINDSIGHT, SIMPLE TACTICS, BROUGHT THE FIRST WITHDRAWAL FROM WHAT WAS ASSUMED TO BE A TRULY DEADLY BRAWL.
MAYBE A NEW TEST JUST TO CHECK IF I AM SLACKING ,SHOULD IT BE GREETED TO SHOW IT WAS ALREADY DEFEATED?
IF FRUSTRATED AGAIN WITH THE DEPTH OF IT'S BREATH,THE HEAT IS NOT FUNNY OR DISCREET ,NOR A CHILDISH PHANTOM,WILL MY NEW SELF MAKE IT A SHORTER TRIP,MAYBE JUST A DAY OR IN FOR THE LONG HAUL.

Easter Thoughts:

-''I knelt at the Altar of God
by the rose coloured sanctuary light

as my mind wandered back.
two thousand years

To what happened..
that first Easter Night..

It is said 'HE' died ...lost and rejected
Yet

I wonder HOW that could be..

If HIS father was really the GOD
who rules o'er the stars and sea..

Perhaps 'twas to teach us a lesson..
One which was crafted from LOVE.

For the times we feel lost and alone
down here
we can reach to the Heavens above

and call on HIS masterful wisdom
knowing HE will see us through

Because HIS son JESUS was human..once..

and fragile ..

like ME and YOU -

Colored Toys

When I bring to you colored toys, my child,
I understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water,
and why flowers are painted in tints
---when I give colored toys to you, my child.

When I sing to make you dance
I truly now why there is music in leaves,
and why waves send their chorus of voices to the heart of the listening earth
---when I sing to make you dance.

When I bring sweet things to your greedy hands
I know why there is honey in the cup of the flowers
and why fruits are secretly filled with sweet juice
---when I bring sweet things to your greedy hands.

When I kiss your face to make you smile, my darling,
I surely understand what pleasure streams from the sky in morning light,
and what delight that is that is which the summer breeze brings to my body
---when I kiss you to make you smile.

They say there is a reason
they say that time will heal
but neither time nor reason
will change the way we feel.
For no one knows the heartache
that lies behind our smiles
no one knows how many times
we have broken down and cried.
we want to tell you something
so there won't be any doubt
you're so wonderful to think of
but so hard to be without
we cannot bring the old days back
when we were all together
the family chain is broken now
but memories live forever...

You've given me a reason for smiling once again.
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams and
you've become my closet friend.
You've shared your heartfelt secrets
and your trust you've given me.
You showed me how to feel again
to laugh and love and to see.
If Life should end for me tomorrow
and from this world I should part
I shall be forever young
for you have touched my heart

Found this and wanted to share it..

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.

The Bridge

Between now and now,
between I am and you are,
the word bridge.

Entering it
you enter yourself:
the world connects
and closes like a ring.

From one bank to another,
there is always
a body stretched:
a rainbow.
I'll sleep beneath its arches.

~Octavio Paz

While you're ignoring her..Another guy is giving her attention
While you're giving her problems..Another guy is listening
While you're too busy for her..Another guy is making time for her
While you're making her cry..Another guy is trying to make her smile again.
When you're not sure if you still want her..Another guy has already figured it out...

I'M TELLING YOU NOW‏
I try very hard to NOT live in a world of self pity, even when I am constantly never under standing MY END, so these words HAVE to be ,not only words,BUT A WAY OF LIFE! If I find myself asking to man questions & by body separating itself from my mind, I find my myself with honesty & INTEGRITY ,the lyrics become my spit. Peace. Rick

There are things that we don't want to happen ,but have to accept.
Things we don't want to know, but have to learn.
People we can't live without, but have to let go....
