~The Perfect Present~
People are busy buying presents
For Christmas time is near
Desiring to buy the perfect gift
For ones they hold so dear

Almost eight years ago you gave
The most perfect gift to me
Nothing else will ever compare
Neither jewels nor riches I see

When you reached inside yourself
And gave to me your love
No greater gift can be given
For it was sent from up above

For you gave to me your promise
When you gifted me with your heart
Vowing forever and for always to love me
And for eternity to let not your love depart

Wonderful Springtime is felt in the air
With signs of its appearing seen everywhere
The grass looking greener upon the lawn
Birds with their songs we hear at break of dawn

Green leaves are sprouting on each of the trees
Beautiful flower buds we are beginning to see
Soon roses of yellows, pinks, and reds
Azaleas on their bushes, petunias in their beds

The fragrance of gardenias will soon be all around
And beautiful wisteria's almost hanging to the ground
Soon the Easter clothes with colorful hats of Spring
Children hunting decorated eggs as they gleefully sing

For a hint of Springtime is felt in the air
With signs of its appearing seen everywhere

~A Hope, A Vision~
If hopes and dreams should ever be gone
We all would feel so all alone
Without a future vision to see
A miserable being we would be

For dreams and hopes are a life string
To hold onto them makes us happily sing
A song in heart sung gleefully
As day after day our vision we see

As long as we live upon this earth
Each day we awake can bring a new birth
For us to think upon positive things
Waiting hopefully for what future will bring

Trouble and woe in the world are around
Making us look straight down to the ground
Yet, in our mind's eye when we see what could be
We might realize great beauty more abundantly

~For dreams and hopes are a life string
To hold onto them makes us happily sing~

~He Walks Beside Me~
Even in my weak times
When I feel oh, so low
My Jesus walks beside me
Of this I surely know

For I can feel His presence
Traveling with me on my way
He will never leave nor forsake
As I walk along day by day

No matter my shortcomings
In this world in which I live
He never holds them against me
For if I ask, He will forgive

> The main purpose God gave
For sending His Son to this earth
Was for mankind to receive life eternal
Through Jesus Christ and the New Birth

~My Mother's Words~

As I walk down the path of remembrance
Of through the years in which I live
Words of encouragement, guidance, and love
My Mother did always sweetly give

It seems daily I can hear them
From within my mind and from my heart
Into my being they are embedded
I pray they will never from me depart

When upon me trials have arisen
A voice from within I will hear clearly
To gently lead me with my decisions
My Mother's words I cherish dearly

The only regret I have of her words
Is that to them I didn't always heed
To go my own way I at times endeavored
Bringing to myself more trouble indeed

For I know my Mother hears a higher power
Who whispers direction into her ear
Unlike myself who at times wouldn't listen
She has no problem from God to hear

How I thank you, my Lord, for my Mother
Whose amazing deeds seem to never end
With patience, understanding, unconditional love
She is not only my Mother, she's my dearest friend
