In 1941
On this very day
A heinous deed done
In a cowardly way

Attacked while most slumbered
Chaos ensued
Now all awake
Their worst fears were true

Dead laying about
The damage was done
But a giant awoken
Fearing no-one

Heroes were born
From regular souls
Who leapt into action
Their futures unknown

The past is just that
No changing it now
Heroes from both sides
Lie dead in the ground

We should never forget them
One thing we Should do
Is never repeat
What both sides Did do

Attacked killed and maimed
The unfortunate souls
Both fighting for country
And the fight for control

Just thought I'd mention
What some had forgot
Freedom's not free
It cost quite a lot

We can never repay
What they have given
We can only be thankful
For such men and women
Hopefully we all remember what happened, and hope for peace and live life to the fullest

Life flows like a river
Parts fast, others slow
Always ever changing
You go with the flow

Never knowing what's ahead
Can't forget what's behind
Could be rough Rapids
OR a peaceful flow through pines

One thing is certain
The river's gonna flow
Will you be the captain ?
Or simply follow where it goes?

As I looked through rheumy eyes,
Intently peering toward the sun,
I kept up my gazing,
Blinded for fun.

Now all that I see,
Is brilliant and bright,
No longer in darkness,
Surrounded by light.

No more ugly life,
At least not for me,
I'll keep my eyes open,
And happiness see.

I'm seeing not really,
Though I'm not bothered true,
For my life is now sunny,
How about you?

Feeling this bitter chill,
                 Intruding upon my body,
Warmth I'm craving,
                 Seems to elude me,
I sit nearer the flames,
                 Yet feel not their heat,
I listen to music,
                 Still can't hear a beat,
Spiraling down,
                 Where will it stop,
With me at the bottom,
                 And sadness on top.

Here I lie,
No comfort therein,
Alone again,
Lightly breathing.

Shallow breaths,
Of life-giving air,
Send me home,
To whom knows where.

If I don't wake,
Again my dear,
I'll see you soon and know I'm near.

Though if I wake,
It may be a while,
Until I see,
Your loving smile.
and yet....
I   F

Into Your Eyes
      Into Your Words
             Into Your Voice
    The feelings my heart.
            and mind
      have created
Leave me very little choice
          I cannot control
   the musings in my soul
        the desperation in my heart
     or the erratic thoughts in my mind
           That keep tearing at my insides
      Making me want to fall apart
      Especially, in regards to me
I just wish you could see
          I know I sound crazy
     But, sometimes we just can't help
            how we feel
       It's too much to ask of you
   But I'm a fan of the truth
          and I know these emotions
      that I'm trying to conceal
        they're all real
  I tried and tried and tried
         but I just can't control
            what's deep in my soul
     and how my heart feels...

Just thought you should know...

A promise to be,
A shoulder to cry on

A loving hand
To pick you up when you fall

A warm heart
When your heart's feeling cold

A friend who'll still love you
Even when we've grown old

An ear to listen
To your worries and fears

A warm gentle hand
To wipe away any tears

Whatever will be,will be
And there's nothing we can do
But you'll always have me
My friendship promise to you
You mean the world to me!
I hope you know that
