A true friend is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold
Whose value is far greater
than a mountain made of gold.
A true friend is someone
Who brings us laughter
Even in our tears
Whose memories make us
Smile across the miles
Through the years.
A true friend hears
The songs in your heart
Sings it to you when all
Memories depart.
Among the great
Glorious gifts that we are
Blessed with, it’s the gift
Of understanding that we find,
In loving true friends..

One thing can change the world
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream;
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald Spring.
One smile can bring a friendship,
One handclasp can lift a soul;
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One cheer can obtain a goal.
One vote can change a Nation,
One sunbeam can lift a room;
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One look can change two lives;
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer;
One hope can raise our spirits,
One-touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true;
One life can make a difference,
One life is me and you….

Finding Light In The Darkness


On difficult roads, where challenges appear,
through storms of doubts, and valleys of despair.
The path of honesty is not always clear, through twists and turns,
it may disappear.
When fear whispers doubts, and weakness drew near,
the weight upon your soul feels hard to bear.
Though the road ahead is not so easy, and the path unclear,
remember God shall send a guiding light to calm your fear,
and your strength will shine bright and clear,
so do not let your eyes drop a tear.
Even in the darkest nights, trust in the universe, there is nothing to fear,
with every breath, May His presence banish darkness, and conquer every fear.
God chooses those with hearts sincere, whose honesty shines bright and clear.
let’s fill our days with laughter and cheer,
as life is a short trip, so enjoy it to the fullest with everyone dear.
