Chapter One

      A Hero


    You always held your head up high
    Because you were proud of whom you were
    You always believed in people
    No matter whom they are
    I went to see you
    But I wish I could see you in person
    You were always brave
    Even though things would get difficult
    Even though I want to be with you
    I know I have to wait even though it's hard
    I know I shouldn't ask why
    But it's so hard not to know the reason why
    My mind is always thinking of you
    And I will never forget you
    Even though I had to let you go
    You will always be a part of me
    I know you are following orders
    But even though you're in heaven I will always love you
    I guess heaven was
    Needing a hero like you


      A Little Child

    Is a small and fragile
    Because that's how God made them
    Is so dear and precious
    Because each one is unique in their own way
    Is so sweet and joyful
    Because they bring happiness to a home
    Is dependent on people
    Because they need someone they can count on
    Is so very loved
    Because they love you back


      A Loved One

    Is someone who patiently waits
    To receive a letter from the one they love
    Is someone who quickly opens the letter
    To see what they wrote
    Is someone who writes them almost every day
    To tell them about the different things going on
    Is someone who reads letters over and over again
    Until the next one comes
    Is someone who writes
    To the one they hope to see again
    Is someone who dreams
    To hold their special someone in their arms again
    Is someone who wants
    To tell their true love that they will love them forever and always

A Mother

A mother is someone who loves you before you're born. She kisses you and gives you a hug before you go to bed at night. She is the one that holds you close to her at night when you cry. She is there to dry your tears and to comfort you in your time of need. She helps you through good and bad times. She teaches you certain things like how to cook, clean a house, and do laundry.

She watches you grow up from her little one, to a teenager, and then to an adult. When you turn thirteen, she hopes that you will take your teenage years slow because you can't go back in time and become younger. Then she watches you turn sixteen with worry because you're old enough to get your license. Finally, she watches you turn eighteen, graduate from high school and onto college in the fall. When you leave, she hugs you like the first day at the hospital when the doctors handed you to her.

When she gets a phone call with you telling her that you met someone and your relationship is getting serious. She tells you to pray and if that person is the one that you're supposed to be with then God will show you. She watches you while you're with that special person you brought home to meet the family. On that special day, she can't believe her "little girl" is standing before a preacher, saying her vow to the special man God has given her.

As time goes by, she watches you become a mother just like her. She watches you with your own baby and can't believe that you were once that little. She sees how happy you are with your new family and tells you how proud she is to be your mother. A mother is someone who will always love you and care for you in a special way.

      A Rose with Thorns


    A rose with thorns
    Looks beautiful on the outside but is hard on the inside
    A rose with thorns
    Will prick you if you try to touch it
    A rose with thorns
    Will guard it from being hurt
    A rose with thorns
    Always does its best to try and defend itself
    A rose with thorns
    Wants someone that will protect it from harm
    A rose with thorns
    Looks for someone that will treat it with respect
    A rose with thorns
    Wants to have someone to trust
    A rose with thorns
    Wants someone that will always be there for them no matter what
    A rose with thorns
    Doesn't want thorns for the rest of its life
    A rose with thorns
    Wants to have a special someone that will help get rid of the thorns
    A rose with thorns
    Wants someone to love all of their days
    A rose with thorns
    Wants someone to love it back all of their days


      A True Love

    A true love
    Is someone you can trust
    A true love
    Is someone that will support you in life
    A true love
    Is someone that God brings to you when the time is right
    A true love
    Is someone that will be next to you for life
    A true love
    Is someone that comes around once in a life time
    A true love
    Is someone that you love with all your heart
    A true love
    Is someone that will be there till death do you part


      A Volunteer

    A volunteer
    Will go without being asked
    A volunteer
    Will go because they feel it's their duty
    A volunteer
    Will know the risks
    A volunteer
    Will make the sacrifices
    A volunteer
    Will go because they love their country
    A volunteer
    Will fight to keep their loved ones free
    A volunteer
    Will do their best
    A volunteer
    Will give their life


      Abuse

    Is critical
    And will leave a trail of pieces
    It can ruin a person's life
    If they allow it to
    It produces a lot of emotions
    Sometimes to many to handle
    They become distant
    And they feel like they can't trust anyone
    They try to cry for help
    But something or someone stops them
    They get angry easily
    Because they are holding it all in
    They try to tell someone
    But not always in words
    They feel damaged and useless
    Because of what happened to them
    They feel like it's them against the world
    Because they feel so alone
    They have been abused
    In a way only certain people know what they are going through
    Their life has been shattered
    Because of someone else's actions
    Happens to mostly children
    Because they have a harder time defending themselves
    It happens too much
    And needs to be stopped


      Always with You

    In your mind
    Because I will always be thinking of you
    In your memory
    Because we always had good times together
    When you talked
    Because I always gave anything to hear your voice
    In your smile
    Because I love seeing your smile
    In your laugh
    Because I enjoyed listening to you laugh
    In your eyes
    Because I always love looking into your eyes
    When you sleep
    Because watching you sleep peacefully makes me smile
    When you're alone
    Because I will never leave you
    In your heart
    Because I love you
    When you love
    Because I love the way you love me


      Amazed

    The way you look at me
    With your soft blue eyes
    The way you touch me
    With your smooth finger s
    The way you speak to me
    With your sweet voice
    The way you snuggle up with me
    With a blanket over us and you holding me
    The way you hold me
    With your strong and calm arms
    The way your there for me
    With encouragement and love
    The way you hold my hand
    With gentleness
    The way you kiss me
    With your soft and smooth lips
    The way you love me
    With your heart of gold


      America

    America the land of the beautiful
    But we have forgotten the real beauty of it
    America is known as a godly nation
    But we don't live like it
    America has always been a free nation
    But we take it for granted
    America has been so blest by God
    But we have forgotten that God gave us this nation
    America is a republic
    But people today are saying she is a democracy
    America is slipping through the cracks
    But are you trying to help save her or are you just letting her go


      As Long As I Live

    As long as I live
    I will hold your hand till the earth stops spinning
    As long as I live
    I will keep my arms around you
    As long as I live
    I will stand next to you through the good and the bad times
    As long as I live
    I will always support you
    As long as I live
    I will never leave your side
    As long as I live
    You will be my prince charming
    As long as I live
    I will tell you I love you forever
    As long as I live
    I will love you till the day I take my last breath


      Before You

    Before you
    I felt lost
    Before you
    I was afraid to trust people
    Before you
    I worried about letting people in my life
    Before you
    I didn't think anyone special would come into my life
    Before you
    I was happy but not as happy as I am now
    Before you
    I smiled and laughed but now it's all the time
    Before you
    I dreamed of falling in love with someone special and that person
    turned out to be you


      Being Close

    When were close
    We can play thumb wars
    When were close
    We both are safe
    When were close
    We can snuggle
    When were close
    We can have each other's arms wrapped around one another
    When were close
    We can have our heads on top of each other
    When were close
    We can feel each other's touch
    When were close
    We can feel each other's heartbeat


      Belong

    I belong with the one
    Whose hand fits in mine
    I belong with the one
    Whose arms protect me
    I belong with the one
    Whose touch is tender
    I belong with the one
    Whose smile I can't forget
    I belong with the one
    Whose eyes I can't turn away from
    I belong with the one
    Whose voice I keep hearing
    I belong with the one
    Whose face I can't stop thinking about
    I belong with the one
    Whose love I can't let go of
    I belong with the one
    Who's going to help me raise our family
    I belong with the one
    Who's going to grow old with me
    I belong with the one
    Whose heart is always with me


      Broken Road

    The broken road
    Is full of good and bad times
    The broken road
    Is full of broken dreams
    The broken road
    Is full of people that come and go
    The broken road
    Is full of happy and sad times
    The broken road
    Is a road that God can help you and lead you to the one he has for you


      Courting

    Courting
    Is when we can't wait to see each other
    Courting
    Is when we can't wait to talk to each other
    Courting
    Is when we can't wait to spend time together
    Courting
    Is when we can call or write letters to each other
    Courting
    Is about learning how much a person means to you
    Courting
    Is learning how to be apart from each other
    Courting
    Is remembering that God is in it all until the end
    Courting
    Is learning to rely on God


      Cross My Heart

    I cross my heart
    And I know I'll always get lost in your eyes
    I cross my heart
    And I'm happy I get to see your smile
    I cross my heart
    And I know we'll always be hand in hand
    I cross my heart
    And I always want to share our laughter together
    I cross my heart
    And I can't wait to share all of our joys
    I cross my heart
    And I'm so glad you're my dream come true
    I cross my heart
    And you will have my heart forever
    I cross my heart
    And I always want to be by your side
    I cross my heart
    And I'm glad we are each other's forever
    I cross my heart
    And I give you all of me


      Cry

    When you cried
    I wrapped my arms around you
    When you cried
    I wanted to make you feel better
    When you cried
    I held you close to me to comfort you
    When you cried
    I talked to you so you knew you weren't alone
    When you cried
    I saw how sensitive and caring you were
    When you cried
    I dried your tears
    When you cried
    I stayed next to you because you mean so much to me
    When you cried
    I cried with you because I love you so very much


      Do I

    Do I love you right?
    Because I want to show you different kinds of love
    Do I love you right?
    Because I want to show the best kind of love
    Do I love you right?
    Because I want to keep your love close
    Do I love you right?
    Because I want our love to be so strong
    Do I love you right?
    Because you're the love I always dreamed of
    Do I love you right?
    Because I want to love you right
    Do I love you right?
    Because I want to show you all the love I have for you
    Do I love you right?
    Because I won't ever stop loving you
    Do I love you right?
    Because I don't want you to ever think that I don't love you


      Don't Take the Guy

    Don't take the guy
    Because I want to talk to him always
    Don't take the guy
    Because I want to always hear his voice
    Don't take the guy
    Because I want to see him smile everyday
    Don't take the guy
    Because I will miss him everyday
    Don't take the guy
    Because I love him
    Don't take the guy
    Because he completes me
    Don't take the guy
    Because I want him to see our kids grow up
    Don't take the guy
    Because he is my true love


      Dreamed

    I dreamed of us
    Hold each other's hands forever
    I dreamed of us
    With our arms wrapped around each other
    I dreamed of us
    One day standing before a preacher
    I dreamed of us
    Being there through the good and bad times
    I dreamed of us
    Starting our own family together
    I dreamed of us
    Spending the rest of our lives together
    I dreamed of us
    Growing old until the day we took our last breath


      Falling In Love

    Falling in love
    Is like wishing on a shooting star and it comes true
    Falling in love
    Is like a fairy tale but in real life
    Falling in love
    Is so amazing you can't even begin to imagine
    Falling in love
    Is something I never thought would ever happen to me
    Falling in love
    Is when you get butterflies in your stomach and they stay there
    Falling in love
    Is when your heart hurts and longs to be with the one you love
    Falling in love
    Is when you can't stop thinking and don't want to stop thinking of that
    special person


      Family

    A family is
    A group of people who care about you
    A family is
    A group of people who care what you do with your life and future
    A family is
    A group of people who will be there through trials
    A family is
    A group of people who will pray for you day and night
    A family is
    A group of people who love each other through thick and thin
    A family is
    A group of people who make it worth coming home
    A family is
    Something I have, won't let it go, or forget it


      Firefighters

    Firefighters are a group of people
    Who make sacrifices all the time
    Firefighters are a group of people
    Who are there when we need them
    Firefighters are a group of people

    Who put their life on the line every day
    Firefighters are a group of people
    Who need to be thanked every day for being there for us
    Firefighters are a group of people
    Who need our prayers every day
    Firefighters are a group of people
    Who need our support
    Firefighters are a group of brave men and women
    Who are greatly appreciated for everything they have done


      Firefighters 2

    Firefighter's respond to many different kinds of calls
    Because that's part of their job
    Firefighter's are there for you all day long
    Because they care about people
    Firefighter's rescue so many people
    Because they care and don't want anything to happen to them
    Firefighter's families and loved ones pray every day for them
    Because they want them to stay safe and come home at the end of the
    day

    Because they want to keep living so they can help more people
    Firefighter's risk their own lives
    Because they are there to help save lives of others
    Firefighter's fall on their knees to thank God
    Because they made it through a blazing fire
    Firefighter's are always there
    Because they signed up for being there for people
    Firefighters should always be appreciated
    Because those of us who aren't one don't know what it really takes to
    be one
    Firefighter's sometimes die
    But we need to make sure we're there for their families since they were
    there for us
    Firefighters are proud of what they do
    Because they enjoy helping their community
