Hold On To Your Dreams

I think ones biggest fear is forgetting the face, the smile, the smell,the voice of a loved one.  As a mom this is something you know I will never forget. I see the face as a baby, a toddler,a teenager and as an adult.The smile that will brighten the skies and the joy that is brought to my heart. I love to talk about Dustin and so proud of him as I am my daughter. So forget is not something I even consider. But I one day hope to lessen the pain and it all be memories of joy and laughter and the tears that do flow are happy tears.

A Face In The Clouds

 

I looked towards the clouds today

and for a moment saw your face

And wondered just were you have gone

with a hope it's a better place

 

Did you show yourself to me today

to tell me you're alright?

Or was it just a daydream

playing tricks upon my sight

 

Then I thought of when you left

you did not say a word

No hugs and kisses..

no good-bye was heard

 

You have changed our lives forever

Your time here not in vain

and hope you know we always tried

to keep you safe from pain

 

We will always feel the void inside

because you are not here

But each new thought you send our way

let's us know you're always near

 

So until our journey nears it's end

And we hear the angels sing

We'll face each new day as it comes

and live off the love you bring

Love Stays, Feelings Fade
We often don't feel
Love each and every day
Just the same it's there
And will never fade away

Just like the ocean tide
Coming in and going out
At times our love's so strong
Other times is seldom felt

In those times of wondering
When love is placed in doubt
We must only remember
Our love has not run out

God in all His splendor
Knows just how we feel
He knows true love goes deeper
Than our feelings that seem real

So don't be depending
On feelings everyday
Love is always there
But feelings fade away

Sometimes Love
Sometimes love can be quiet
And sometimes love can be still
But always love is patient
And is a choice of our will

Sometimes love can be vibrant
Sometimes it's not easily felt
But always love is eternal
And is never boastful or proud

Sometimes love can be tender
Then sometimes hard to express
But always love is truthful
And believes in the very best

Sometimes love can be exciting
And love can sometimes be sweet
For love is always trusting
And chooses never to envy

Sometimes love can be painful
Then sometimes love's like a song
But always love is forgiving
And keeps no record of wrongs

Sometimes love can be gentle
Then sometimes it’s just a word
But always love protects and hopes
And love is always preserved

Love is never self-seeking
And is never angered or rude
Love can never fail us
For God’s love is faithful and true

By M.S.Lowndes.

Never Forget

 

Your presence, is a present to the world.

You're unique and one of a kind.

Your life can be, what you want it to be.

Take the days, just one at a time.

 

Count your blessings, not your troubles.

You'll make it through, whatever comes along.

Within you, are so many answers.

 

Understand, have courage, be strong.

Don't put limits on yourself.

So many dreams, are waiting to be realized.

Decisions are too important, to leave to chance.

 

Reach for your peak, your goal and your prize.

Nothing wastes more energy, than worrying.

The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets.

Don't take things too seriously.

 

Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.

Remember, that a little love goes a long way.

Remember, that a lot goes forever.

Remember, that friendship is a wise investment.

 

Life's treasures, are people together.

Realize, that it's never too late.

Do ordinary things, in an extraordinary way.

Have health, hope and happiness.

Take the time, to wish upon a star.

 

And don't ever forget.

For even a day.

How very special you are!

Memories

Precious, tender memories,

Can comfort us in sorrow

Giving us a reason,

To look towards tomorrow.

 

We can recall a word or deed

From an unexpected source,

That helped uplift our spirits

As we traveled on life's course.

 

So never dwell on troubles,

Of a cross you had to bear,

Search deep within your heart

And find sweet memories there.

 

Life is just a mixture

Of sunshine with some rain,

But memories of sunny days,

Are the ones that should remain.

Always Remember Poem

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But don't forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

You Will Never Be Forgotten

 

You will never be forgotten

I’ll always see your face

The corner of your smile

And all the little things that no one will ever know

Like it was yesterday, won’t ever fade away

Goodbye is just a word that I will never say

You will never be forgotten

A million days could pass us by

But what is time but just a dream

Oh I still feel you here with me

You’re more than just a memory

Oh you will never be forgotten

I can‘t hold your hand

Or look into your eyes

And when I talk to you

It just echoes in my mind

But If hearts are made of dust

And if we fell from the stars

I look up tonight and know just where you are

You will never be forgotten

A million days could pass us by

But what is time but just a dream

Oh I still feel you here with me

You’re more than just a memory

Oh you will never be forgotten

And the world just keeps on going

It has no way of knowing

That you’re gone

You will never be forgotten

A million days could pass us by

But what is time but just a dream

Oh I still feel you here with me

You’re more than just a memory

Oh you will never be forgotten

A Bridge Called Love

It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days and to precious
 moments that will be with us always.

And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
 to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.

In Memory:

One gift, above all others

God gives to us to treasure

One that knows no time, no place

And one gold cannot measure

 

The precious, poignant tender gift

Of Memory, that will keep

On dear ones ever in our hearts

Although God gives them sleep

it brings back long remembered things.

 

A song, a word, a smile

And the world's a better place because

We had them for awhile!

Memories

Memories are a treasure
The wealth we have inside
Special times and sad times
They're all part of life

We often like to retreat
To the memories of yesterday
The tender moments we had
That can never be replaced

When we see that the Lord
Was there throughout our lives
And see the turns we made
With Him as our guide

We see the plan He had
To bring us where we are
We see the road we've traveled
Has brought us on this far

So memories of the past
Help us trust to thee
Our future years with gladness
That we cannot yet see

For if in the Father’s care
We place each day we live
We will know His inner peace
And His grace He freely gives

By M.S.Lowndes

He Knows My Name

Jeremiah 1:5

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee."

 

I have a Maker

He formed my heart

Before even time began

My life was in his hands

 

Chorus

He knows my name

He knows my every thought

He sees each tear that falls

and He hears me when I call

I have a Father

He calls me His own

He?ll never leave me

No matter where I go

 

 

Chorus

He knows my name

He knows my every thought

He sees each tear that falls

and He hears me when I call
