Weary and weak it's love that I seek.
For some strange reason it's out of my reach
I can only wait until the time is right
And maybe I will fall in love one night
I suppose it could be love at first sight
But, for now I will stay content until the day you are sent.
I'll be waiting for you and this is what I'll do
I'll hold you and love you all night long
And speak these words " we belong"
Then I'll awaken and you will be gone.

Tears are in my eyes,saddness in my heart
All because the lies that tore me apart.
Hearts broken and shattered, for someone I thought mattered.
Never again will I fall and be hurt, just so they can use me and treat me like dirt.
Broken in two, this will heal in time, until then- I"ll be fine.

|*"Feeling of hatered"*
It's being alone bitter and cold;
Feeling of emptiness, pain controls;
Actions are unknown, for each it's own;
Heedlessly the antipathy begins, as the heart
breaks and love escapes.....

||* Heres a little taste of my heart my friend....*
Do you remeber me? Sitting here knowing I'm not alone, knowing God your on your thrown! Thank you Lord for all you've done, I know my blessings have just begun! It was so hard nine months ago, At that time I felt so alone! But things have changed for me so very fast, Now it's time to forget my past! I didn't feel anyone loved me Lord, Until you brought me this man I adore! He's so different than all the rest, I know you sent him because he is the best! I love him Lord I really do, I really feel he was sent from you! Help me Lord to receive his love, He loves me Lord he really does! The smile on his face, Fills my heart with a light of Grace! I thank you Lord for this man, Bless him Lord all that you can! Put a peace in his heart that I love him so, Let him know Lord, I will never let him go! Let us always have the trust in our hearts, And never ever let us grow apart! I know all this is from above. It's amazing God to feel this kind of true love! I'm in Awe Lord can't you see, With this mans love you brought for me! I feel I'm blessed to have this love in my life, I know this is the man, I will soon marry and become his wife!

| Blessings Abound!!!
Today is a rainy, dreary day, somewhat cold and windy. Normally I would let this weather bring me down, but I began to think of all the many wonderful things going on in my life and even this gray, wet day cannot dampen the light that shines within my heart.
You see, I am so very blessed!!! I look to my family as I have three beautiful children who have grown into such talented, fascinating and caring individuals. They each are so precious and hold such a very special place in my heart. I am so very blessed to have children who love me, who take the time to let me know that I am appreciated as their mom. The precious hugs, the smiles, the "thank yous" I hear from them even when I do the usual "mom" things all fill me with a sense of love and warmth that I cannot even truly describe.
I am so very blessed!!! I look to my husband, my best friend, my life partner and am awed at all that we have been through together. I hold a great respect and admiration for him that grows daily as I watch him change and grow and work hard on improvement in all phases of his life. I have gained so very much through knowing and loving him!!! I can think of no other human on this earth who has taught me more, loved me more and given me more than what he has. I pray that I can somehow give to him the sense of love and warmth and true friendship that he has given me. This man has loved me through even the worst of times and I still feel his goodness, his strength, his kindness and compassion in his hugs, in the many things he does to help enrich our lives. At night when I snuggle in close to him and feel his arms encircle me for those twilight moments before sleep comes, I know true happiness and contentment. Each day with him is an adventure. He encourages me to join him in growing and changing and in self-improvement and in so doing, he has opened my eyes to the many blessings I have in this life!
I have my health!!! Through daily exercise and trying hard to eat sensibly, I am gaining muscle strength and stamina and energy that I would not have thought possible not so long ago. He wants us to grow old together and to live a full life together. What better reason to strive for good health than that???
Love has always been my most sought after desire not just receiving love, but I feel such joy in giving love, as well. I am so blessed to have my sisters and their unconditional and encompassing love. They are each such amazing and awesome women who I admire and respect more than I know how to express in words. My sisters are each very strong, very good, compassionate people and the love they hold for me is a blessing that I hold so very dear to my heart. Will my sisters know that always they are with me, no matter where I go or what I do? I feel them near even when I am thousands of miles away this bond is everlasting and so very real and I treasure my time with them, I treasure each of them and value their insights, I ache whenever they ache, rejoice whenever they are happy. My sisters make me know each and every day that I am so very blessed!!!
I have my friends many scattered about the country but even the miles that separate us cannot diminish the love we hold for one another. Sometimes I feel so completely awed when I realize the depth of love I receive from these friends, but perhaps their love merely reflects this vast love I hold for each of them.
I am so very blessed!!! I have two very precious and adorable grand daughters that I love and cherish more than words can say. My son and his sweet wife are such loving and caring parents and my heart swells with pride whenever I realize how very well they are handling the awesome task of parenthood. Both are blessed to be sharing the challenge of raising their children to be loving and caring people and both are so very lucky to have one another to turn to for love and support. How very blessed I am to have them to nurture the two grandchildren that I love so dearly!!!
I am so very blessed!!! I have two brothers and a father that love me and care about me as much as I love and care about them. Each has taught me many things in this life and each hold a special place in my heart.
My blessings abound and fill me with an awe and an inspiration to live up to the many gifts God has given to me. The gifts of my children who enrich my life and make me know that this world is a good and wonderful place because they each are in it and will make their mark in their own special ways. The gift of my husband and his love and companionship and warmth and goodness. The gift I receive from each of my sisters who buoy me up whenever I am down, who rejoice whenever I am happy and celebrating the good things in my life. The sisters who love me inspite of my faults and mistakes and who remind me that they are always there to listen, to care. I too will always be there for them. The gift of knowing that my father loves me and cares about me and my little family and the gift of my two brothers who are each sensitive and caring in their own special ways. The gifts of my friends who never forget me, who make me know that I am loved even from afar. Dear God, I pray that I will be able to give back these many gifts to all those who bless my life and I pray that each life I touch, each person who is a part of my heart will know boundless joy and countless blessings as their lives unfold in this great world of ours. Amen.

One night I dreamed I was walking
Along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that
During the low periods of my life when I was
Suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints,
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me,
Lord, that if I followed You,
You would walk with me always.
But I noticed that during the most trying periods
Of my life there have only been
One set of prints in the sand.
Why, When I have needed You most,
You have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
Is when I carried you."
By Mary Stevenson
written in 1936

Take note:Margaret Powers' Footprints poem was written
28 years after Mary Stevenson wrote the original poem.
Who was Mary Stevenson?(Born 11/8/22 Died 1/6/99)
Mary was from a poor family, who lost her mother at the age of seven, during the Depression of the 30's. In 1936, during one of Mary's down times, when she was locked out of her home, Mary observed the neighbor's cat leaving footprints in the snow. She pleaded to God for His guidance and was rewarded by penning the words to one of the most beloved, inspirational poems ~"FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND"~. She was only fourteen.
~I want you~
Only one of the two of us will live to watch the other eternally die,
In this cruel weather I close one eye and leave the other...
A window that runs blind in your mind
Giving you a sign, is it time to rewind
The moments of the past...
And question you find at last...
Am I yours? Am I still awaited?
Don't say of course....when you created
The end with your words, you said "good bye"
And my reaction hurts, when I choose to die
I burn you with my gray silence
When you display madness
You turn me away from violence
Yet, you leave me in this sadness
And still when you ask me what I want....
Ignoring this question... I just can't...
It is an exception and I walk through your direction
I want to...I want you.... I want to...
" Cross over my life, crossing over my life, my life, crossing over with you, a lover, moreover, i want it, i want you...I want you...I want you...
Playing and it hurts
Saying all the words
Taking them back
I love you and you need it
This struggle is magnetic
tastes like magic when I confuse you
life is tragic when i feel i will lose you
You aim to confuse me
You refuse me and I refuse you
but the truth is you choose me
and you love it when you amuse me
I know someday I will do
These very same things to you
I still feel you, i still do
i wish i can say these words to you
would you believe me?
would you just leave me?
There are other guys
I can choose to be with
but look into my eyes
it is you i choose to be with
I want them to say it
Say that we are fine
That I am yours
And you are mine...
In this weather
We die...we live
Only one of us will live
To watch the other eternally die, let us...
Watch this love literally give
While we live...together you and i...
i want to "cross over my life, crossing over my life, my life, crossing over with you, a lover, moreover, i want it, i want you...I want you...I want you"
Maybe passion was an image
You saw when the crashing cage of my heart broke apart,
I shall start the part where I play real, feel it,
Do I really need to play when you are already mine?
I cannot define the style of line I use when I choose to reach you,
I preach to let the teacher just teach you where I cannot reach.
Who is our teacher, I beseech?
Love, love, I am here and you are above,
I am signaling the tingling in my heart,
Every time we talk...every time we walk....
We walk apart, talk aloud, I am proud I did not surrender &I wonder
If it ever is under control, should I enter your soul?
I cannot blame myself for the games you play,
I am myself and you stand my way,
I seek you but I cannot pray for illusions,
Take a look at the world and their intrusions
Let us fight for Love....
I want to make love with you in war, I want to make them adore the way we live for each other even more than you being my Lord, I am Your lady, and you made me, I wore my heart when we made love on the sand made by God, and you wore my art with the touch of your hand like silk and blood...I ask if it is worth it, I hope you heard it...when I said I want to Cross over my life, crossing over my life, my life, crossing over with you, a lover, moreover, i want it, i want you...I want you...I want you...

Today it rained happy drops, they left behind a sea,
A sea of fun and laughter created just for you and me.
When you're feeling lonely or a little sad and blue,
Take a dip in this sea where all your dreams come true.
A world where dreams are reality, your wants are very few,
And youth returns from yesteryear to celebrate life anew.
Ecstasy fills the soul, the emotions swell inside,
And you'll never, ever remember all the tears you cried.
The sun hangs dangling securely from a ray of hope up high
It illuminates your hopes and dreams and lights a path near by.
It lights the trail that holds the clues of what God has in plan
It sprinkles beams of sheer delight upon you where you stand.
This haven of happiness is created for all who dare to dream
Close your eyes and follow your heart down the banks of the rippling stream.
When you reach the inner depths that contains the clear blue sea,
You found yourself deep in my heart, where you will always be.
Ronnie, I just wanted to give you something from me today...hope your day was wonderful. With lots of love...susan Mon, 22 Sep 2003 Copyright © 2001-2004 Ron Marcus All Rights Reserved.
IF YOU WOULD SWIM THE OCEAN BLUE IN SEARCH OF ME FOR YOU
I WOULD SOAR THE OPEN SKIES TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
IF THROUGH THE VALLEY YOU WOULD TROD LOOKING FOR A SIGN,
THEN,OVER THE MOUNTAIN I WOULD COME TO CLAIM YOU AS ALL MINE.
THROUGH THE WINDING TUNNELS INTO THE MAZE OF LOVE,
OVER THE OBSTACLES ON THE COURSE WE WILL RISE ABOVE.
TOWARD THE SUNBEAM WE WILL GO IN SEARCH OF LIFE AS ONE,
IN GOD'S HANDS WE WILL BE, HIS WORK IS STILL UNDONE.
I WILL BRING YOU HAPPINESS AS DEEP AS THE CLEAR BLUE SEA,
AS VAST AND BEAUTIFUL AS THE NIGHT SKY, MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL BE.
NEVER DOUBT YOUR PLACE INSIDE MY HEART, FOR ITS YOU WHO OWNS IT ALL,
I WILL STAY BESIDE YOU, WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL!
thank u for being my bestest buddy in the whole wide world... Love,susan!
I love you ronnie marcus...you are a very special person/friend/lover to be to me and I just want you to know it!

Hi Sweet Baby,
I just stopped in to tell you that I am here in the vast open skies sitting on Cloud Nine! Yep, all because of you!!!! So having said that...it stands to reason that I should take the opportunity to say:
~ I LOVE YOU~
I LOVE YOU, SWEETHEART, WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL!
IF EVER IN DOUBT, AS YOU SHOULD NEVER BE, PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL ME!
I WILL TELL YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN, THAT NEVER IN MY LIFE TIME HAVE I BEEN THIS WHOLE.
YOUR FUNNY ANTICS, AS WELL AS THE SERIOUS SIDE THAT YOU SHOW
HAVE ME COMPLETELY DEVOTED TO YOU BECAUSE THRU THEM I KNOW
THAT YOU ARE COMPLETELY A GENTLE SOUL OF LOVE,
AND WITH YOU I WILL FLY LIKE A DOVE...
IN THE SKY AND THROUGH THE COTTONY CLOUDS
OVER THE TREETOPS, I WILL YELL SO LOUD...
RONNIE MARCUS I LOVE YOU!

Can't wait to talk to you , Mr. Marcus....It has been a long day without you!
Loving you because you are so darn cute! Love,Susan
|~Never have I fallen~
Your lips speak soft sweetness,
Your touch a cool caress,
I'm lost in your magic,
My heart beats within your chest,
I think of you each morning,
and dream of you each night,
i think of your arms being around me
and cannot express my delight,
never have i fallen
but i am quickly on my way,
you hold a heart in your hands
that has never before been given away.

~"NOW YOUR GONE"~
We Were Close
But then something went wrong
And the next morning you were gone..
I keep on telling myself that it wasn't true
Then i thought i want to go too.
I remmeber all our good times,
Never had bad...
Why did you have to leave
And make me so SAD?
You left without saying a "good-bye"
or even "ILL SEE YOU LATER!!"
You were the one that told me
Never let go the ones you love
But then you left me
To a place far above
Your may have been gone for acouple of years.
But me thinking of you brings my eyes to tears.
Why did you have to go?
I didnt want you to leave..
But that one night
You wouldnt Breath..
Someone called for help but
Now i feel like im the one to blame..
I should have been there
I should have helped
I should have been there
To help you out..
When someone got there..
It was to late..
No matter what i do..
I always remember that date..
Christian i love you so much and will never forget who you are...

|This next one was sent to me be my sister Cathy in an email and I thought I'd share it with everyone!
WWHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING
(Written by a former child)
A message every adult should read, because children
are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say!
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my
first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted
to paint another one.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a
stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my
favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be
the special things in life.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a
prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always
talk to and I learned to trust in God.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make a
meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each other.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of
your time and money to help people who had nothing
and I learned that those who have something should
give to those who don't.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you take
care of our house and everyone in it and I learned
we have to take care of what we are given.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't
feel good and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come
from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it's all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you
cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I learned most of
life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you
and wanted to say, "Thanks for all the things I saw
when you thought I wasn't looking."
I AM POSTING THIS FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLE
I KNOW WHO DO SO MUCH FOR OTHERS AND
THINK NO ONE EVER SEES OR CARES!
LITTLE EYES SEE A LOT!
Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle,
teacher or friend) influence the life of a child.
How will you touch the life of someone today?
Just by reading this and letting someone else know about it,
you can and probably will make them at least
think about their influence on others!
