As long as there is life, There will always be something new: Blossoms in Spring; Fruit in July; Thoughts and ideas; A newborn baby’s cry. As long as we search, We’ll always find something true: Words from a friend; Hope when we pray; Peace at evening’s end; The dawn of a new day.
Hope never dies; She only sleeps. And when the warmth of springtime comes, She’ll awaken, yawn, stretch And change into dreams fulfilled.
Darkness yields to dawning light; Ones asleep for a long, cold season Begin to awaken and stir. Thoughts and dreams once lost in time Slowly rise up from deepest places, Where they wait and hope for rebirth. Feelings bring fresh sensation, Sweet misery made from pain and joy Sing new songsContinue reading “RENAISSANCE”

Each new season and morning Teaches and reminds us That life is ever new.
The wind may blow; It might snow some more, But it doesn’t matter: March is at the door. Flowers blossom; The warmth we adore; Wake up and be happy: March is at the door. Days grow longer; There’s plenty in store For Spring and then summer; March is at the door!

When it gets cold, We need ways to get warm; That make us feel cozy And safe from a storm, With sweaters and blankets, Hot coffee and such; Conversation and stories; A friendly touch. When the wind howls Piling snow into drifts, We’ll seek refuge inside, With mugs that we lift, ButteredContinue reading “HAPPINESS INSIDE”
