Impossible Dreams

By |November 8th, 2013|

I believe in impossible dreams

I believe in miracles too

I believe you can accomplish anything

I believe in you

I believe the sky is the limit

I believe the stars are in your reach

I believe life’s what you make it

So learn, so you can teach

Stand up tall, be the boss of your own destiny

All you need is already in […]

Fearless

By |May 27th, 2013|

I think I could be an amazing woman

And do amazing things

I’ve been thinking

What if I was fearless

What adventure could that bring

 

Could I jump out of a plane?

Or go swimming with the sharks

Could I climb a mountain?

Go dancing after dark

 

Could I learn the salsa,

Meringue, mambo, flamenco

Could I run a marathon, go parasailing

Or taste escargot?

Nah!

 

Could I fly […]

Did I Forget?

By |April 12th, 2013|

Did I forget

my kids are awesome

my husband is great

I am beautiful

if not too late

 

Still have my life

my life to live

so much to do

so much to give

 

Did I forget

the many ways I’m blessed

to focus on what’s good

and forget about the rest

 

Did I forget

I’ve got talent

there’s so much I could do

Lord, did I forget to look up

keep […]

Each Their Own Gift

By |April 12th, 2013|

I watched them in awe

the roles they play

making a difference in our lives,

day by day

 

Each playing a part

Their own puzzle piece

Without them things wouldn’t run as smoothly,

not in the least

 

But what they are doing

They’re just doing their due

without a single clue

to what it is they do

 

They play a special part

they just didn’t know

that without their […]

I Am Courage

By |April 12th, 2013|

I am courage

because I am afraid

but despite my fear

I persevere

 

I am courage

because I dream

but despite my doubts

I try them out

 

I am courage

because I stand

despite my trembling legs

and shaky hands

 

I am courage

because I move forward

despite my temptation

to be a coward

 

I am courage

because I step up and step out

despite the fear inside me sprout

 

I am courage

because I […]

The Little Things

By |March 16th, 2013|

Dear friend,

I’m writing you this poem

With thoughts of you in my heart

 

As far as the blessings in my life go,

you play a special part

 

I’m writing you these words,

To tell you how I feel

So heart-to-heart, from mine to yours

The truth would be revealed

 

It’s the little things you do,

that you may not think so grand

but they mean […]

Never Again Will You Steal My Joy

By |March 16th, 2013|

You try to take my glow away

Ha, I’m on to you!

 

You think I’m unaware,

that I don’t see what you do

 

Doing all you can,

to make my light go out

Don’t think I don’t know what you are all about

 

Trying to knock me down

and keep me down there

 

But I have news for you

I’m staying right here

 

Up, up, up […]

Good Morning, New Day

By |March 16th, 2013|

Good Morning, New Day

 

Good morning, new day

For me what do you have in store?

Does a new adventure await?

Something new to explore?

 

I welcome you new day

Now yesterday has passed

I wonder how I got here so fast

 

Seems back then I thought you’d never come

But here you are

Here I am

We dance a new dance to the rhythm of […]

Break Out

By |July 17th, 2012|

I wanna break free, break out, break through

God knows I can’t count the many things I wanna do

 

My dreams are so big, my heads about to pop

When I have to settle, my heart starts to drop

 

I wanna jump so high, I could touch the clouds

I wanna raise my voice, I wanna get loud

 

I wanna run, […]

The Race

By |April 21st, 2012|

On your mark!

Get set!

Go!

 

Got to keep running

Haven’t reached the end yet

Can’t stop running until my destiny is met

 

But sometimes in this race

I get tired and weary

And some parts of this race is even a little bit scary

My knees are ready to fall

Don’t know if I’m gonna finish the race at all

 

I wanna keep going, keep […]
