Chapter One

Loving You

Loving you is really neat
Cause I have someone who's
Really sweet.
Loving you is really grand
Cause I have you to understand
Loving you is something new
Because it's like a dream
Come true
Loving you is just so fine
To have someone who's
Really kind.
Loving you is really straight
Cause you are really
Great
Loving you with all my heart
There is nothing to keep
Us apart
I love you here
I love you near
I love you dear
Forever and ever within
The years


A Weight

A rock I'm not
But a weight I am
With eyes, nose and a smile
Your papers I'll keep in a pile
So look at my face
When you have a mess
And think of a weight
And put me on your desk


It's All New

To love you
To hold you
It's all new
To talk with you
To teach you
To show you
It's all new
To show you
To grow with you
It's all new
Why is it all new
Because my Darling
So are you.


Tears with Laughter

Tears go
Laughter comes
Tears with laughter is
In everyone
Laughter goes
Tears come
Laughter with tears will
Soon become one


Nanny

An angel came to take you away
Where skies are always blue
The angel said he'll watch over you
For this we could no longer do
The illness you had took the upper hand
And made us all so blue
We know you're safe
And in place
Where we will soon see you
So at the end we understand
What the angel had to do
And now its time to say goodbye
And we will always love you


A Long Distance Mom

A Long Distance Mom
A long distance mom is
Just a phone call away
We know that she'll be
There every hour of the day
We know that she cares
Which makes it fun when
We have a lot to share
So dry away those tears
And be happy with cheers
Because you know we
Love you
And we know you love
Us too


To My Sweet Allison

You are my love
Sent from above
You make me laugh
You make me cry
But within a gasp
I turn and smile
I love you so much
And I always knew
God sent you from above
To be here with us
And we will always love you.


To Baby Kacie

It's a day of tears
A day for cheers
You made your entrance
In just nine minutes
Though it was painful
And a little touches and goes
Your here to stay
And you let us know
God sent you to us
And with all our love
We will raise you, and cherish
You as long as we need to
It is a long mile
The life we have
Is really worth while
I love you darling
With all my heart
And with this darling
We will never part


Life is Like a Balloon

A balloon is filled with air
It flies in the air
The balloon will pop and soon fall down
And no one really cares
A child is born to live
And live a child did
Until one day a child will say
My life will have to end
A balloon filled with air
A child born to live
Will soon rejoin
And take their place
Back on earth again


My Man

Growing old
Growing together
Makes a difference
Just like the weather
Its cold, it's warm. It's misty, it's wet
It' life we share
Even our bed
Growing old is not to bad
When our children have you for a dad
Growing old I understand
I have you for my man
I'll grow old with you
For the rest of my life
And your place will be by my side


Why can't we do the Rest

The sun rises
The sun sets
The moon rises
The moon sets
The star rises
The stars set
Why in the world can't we do the rest


A Face

A happy face
A sad face
A hurt face
A jerk face
A made-up face
A shape up face
Loving face
A sobbing face
But most of all
It's your face


I wonder

I wonder about life
Where it will take me
I wonder how high
Is it far, past me
I wonder if you or anyone else
Will take a chance
Inspire of yourself
I wonder if someone really cares
Or is there life at the end of my years
I wonder


Be anything you want

Be a bug
Any kind you want
Big or little
Or even a runt
Say you want to be a grasshopper
And you can jump all around
Or if you were a crawdad
Your feet would never leave the ground
Be a big spider
A little one will do
Spin a web around and around
Write I love you
Be a fly
A little sly
Set on the wall
And watch the world go by
Be anything you want
Grow and Grow
It's a lesson you will learn
Now I have to go


A Life

A life is given to take a stand
It was a woman
It was a man
Together a life they lived and grew
And created a life that was all new
This new life
He grew and grew
And became a man that no one knew
He found a woman
And took her hand
Now life goes on
As we know and understand
A life is given to each to own
A life was given to take a stand


When I am gone

If you laugh when I'm gone
It is good
If you cry when I'm gone
It is good
Always remember
Your life will go on
And so will I in a different time


Making a Stand

Making a stand on the world today
To share your thoughts
And learn to pray
Show your courage
To grow through out
Make a marriage to last without
Making a stand to grow and be free
Making a stand to look and see
What you created as the world goes by
A life you see in passer byes


I'll Teach You Things

I'll do my best
I'll raise you right
I'll teach you things
As life goes by
I'll keep you safe
I'll stay close by
I'll teach you things
As life goes by
I'll walk with you side by side
I'll hold your hand so you don't cry
I'll teach you things as life goes by
And in my heart
I will always know
The things I teach you
Will help you to grow


Growing old

Growing old is a way of life
It helps us remember
The time that went by
Growing old is not to bad
With what you left behind
And what you now have
It's good to know that a life you left
Will take your place and do their best
Growing old is a way of life
I'll take a stand right by your side
Growing old
Together we can grow
And make our life memorable


Remember Me

Remember me when I was happy
Remember me when I was sad
Remember me when I was jolly
Remember me when I was mad
If all these things you remember me by
Makes you unhappy
And makes you cry
Than all I ask
Is that you do not remember me at all


Flunking out of School

I set in class
Trying to grasp
The reading and writing
My teacher was reciting
My mind started to wonder
The words started to thunder
The very thought I had
Was making me sad
Setting and thinking
Of things
To do
I realize I was flunking
Out of school


Inner Peace

I tried to conquer
The best of my life
To hold and cherish
The little lives
The ones I love
That's so dear to me
To hold them tight
So I can see
The things I want
The things I need
To have a life
Of inner peace


People

Our present is a gift to the world
We are one of a kind
We can make our life what we want it to be
Let's take it one day at a time
Count our blessings
Not our troubles
We'll make it through a day
For whatever comes along
We have something to say
Within us we have so many answers
Understand have courage and be strong
Have health hope and happiness
Take time to wish upon a star
And don't forget
For even a day
How very special we are


20th Anniversary

Twenty years ago we said I do
We stood in the church and I married you
I have no regrets
Our life is great
We have our love to keep us brave
My love for you has never changed
My love for you will stay the same
You are my life along with our girls
You are my star that shines in my world
I love you Ron


What I Give

I give you my love
That goes so deep
I give you my heart
That misses no beat
You have them both
You hold them close
For what I gave
Is yours to keep


I Wish

I wish I had a nickel
For every person I've met
I put it all together
And add it to my list
I wish I had a nickel
For everything gone bad
I put it in a shoe box
And wish for good things back
I wish I had a nickel
For all the wishes I've made
I put it in your hands
Just to be with you today


Don't Cry for Me

Do not cry for me
For I am not here
Dry your eyes
Wipe your tears
I am not here
Look at the person setting next to you
See my friends and family
I'm there in their hearts
Dry your eyes
Wipe your tears
I am not here
See my Sisters, My brothers too
See my nieces and my nephews
I'm there in their hearts
I'm there in their faces
See my husband, my girls
It's me in their world
Dry your eyes wipe your tears
Do not cry I am here
Here with you in your hearts
Dry your eyes
Cry no more tears for I am not here


Emotions

Emotions of sadness
Emotions of bliss
Emotions of happiness
Just go done the list
Emotions that erupt
Emotions that are calm
Emotions with anger
The list gets long
So many emotions
We put ourselves through
Where would we be?
If we had none of these to do


Nana

Although you got sick
And we knew it was tough
For you to fight
It was just too rough
We miss you so much
Even though you are gone
We know in our hearts
Your true love is strong
So we'll say a prayer
And bless you to God
And see an angel
Stop by for a while
Good bye for now
And we won't forget
Our love
Our hearts
Are sealed with your kiss


Life can Change

An addiction you got
A habit its not
Don't be ashamed
Other people are the same
Look at life
How you want it to be
See how to change
It won't be easy
Think of new things
That you can do
Try to accomplish
What you set out to do
If you fail
Try again
Do not worry
In time you will win


Let me be your angel

Let me be your angel
I'll watch over you
I'll shelter you from evil
And watch over you
I'll keep you warm
And full of love
I'll be by your side
When you're out at night
Let me be your angel
I'm sent to be with you
I'll keep you safe
And keep watch over you
Let me be your angel
It's the least that I can do


Special Kira Baby

Special as special
As special can be
You are so special
To everyone you meet
To Dad
To Mom
To everyone you know
A special little girl
Who we love so


School

My first day of school
Wasn't so bad
I made new friends
Something I didn't have
I played with blocks
And other toys too
I think I will like going to school
My teacher is nice
She teaches me new things
I learned how to write
Not only my name
We made play dough
It was fun to do
We colored pictures
And listened to stories too
Playing out side
Was a little rough
We had a teacher
That made it a little tough
With all the rules
I still Like School
