Always Have A Dream

Forget about the days when it's been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times
you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about the mistakes
that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learned
Forget about the misfortunes
you've encountered,
but don't forget the times
your luck has turned.
Forget about the days
when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans
that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

Hope Is
It's magic and it's free
It's not in a prescription
It's not in an IV.
It punctuates out laughter,
It sparkles in our tears,
It simmers under sorrows,
And dissipates our fears.
Do you know what hope is?
It's reaching past today,
It's dreaming of tomorrow,
It's trying a new way,
It's pushing past impossible
It's pounding on the door,
It's questioning the Answers,
It's always seeking more,
It's rumors of a breakthrough,
It's whispers of a cure,
A roller coaster ride
Of remedies, unsure.
Do you know what Hope is?
It's candy for the soul,
It's perfume for the spirit,
To share it, makes you Whole.

An Angel In Your Pocket

I am a tiny angel ...
I'm smaller than your thumb;
I live in people pockets,
That's where I have my fun.
I don't suppose you've seen me,
I'm too tiny to detect;
Though I'm with you all the time,
I doubt we've ever met.
Before I was an Angel ...
I was a fairy in a flower;
God, Himself, hand-picked me,
And gave me Angel power.
Now God has many Angels
That He trains in Angel pools;
We become His eyes, and ears, and hands
We become His special tools.
And because God is so busy,
With way too much to do;
He said that my assignment
Is to keep close watch on you.
When He tucked me in your pocket,
He blessed you with Angel care;
Then told me to never leave you,
And I vowed always to be there.
