I'm sorry that your brother died. I know you carry tears inside. You called him " Brother" all your life. Your sorrow cuts you like a knife. He sheltered you from every harm And had a certain kind of charm. You saw his flaws but loved him so, And it is hard to let him go. I'm sure he's trying to impress God with his own worthiness. He worked hard to build a ranch And acquired a cowboy stance. Now it's time to say good-bye. He's ridden his horse across the sky. He knows he'll see you again And talk with you of now and then. -Yu/stan/kema-
Love comes softly on angels' wings And touches my shattered soul. I am broken beyond repair And grief has taken it's toll. Where do I go when all is gone And life has lost all meaning? Is there a place to release my tears And express the emotions I'm feeling? The world can be such a lonely place For a sensitive soul like mine. How do you open yourself back up To hurt and say, "I'm fine?" The struggle to get up off the floor Is strenuous year after year. How do I try to find hope again When I have such terrible fear? -Yu/stan/kema-
Take me down to the Valley of Thunder Where the horses run free and wild. My heart will soar with absolute joy As it did when I was a child. They will lift their heads and smell the air Like they did so long ago. We'll ride on the backs of horses we love And we'll race to the river below. The earth will shake from the horses hooves, And our hair will fly in the wind. We'll feel the strength of their muscles beneath And we'll ride 'til the journey's end. The feeling of wind, ourselves, and the horse, Stays magical in our minds. The memories we hold dear within Will last for a very long time. -Yu/stan/kema-
She’s a sweet little lady
And very protective of me.
Her eyes are no longer sharp,
And she can barely see.
She’s aware of all I do,
For her ears are turned my way.
They track my every movement.
She listens to what I say.
She loves to lay beside me
At night when darkness falls.
We both treasure the silence,
Before the night-owl calls.
My Sheltie soon grows weary.
Her breathing becomes deep.
I sing her sweet lullabies
As she gently goes to sleep.
When her soul enters heaven,
And she leaves this earth behind,
I hope that she’ll remember
I loved her and was kind.
The world is such a lonely place
When you’re feeling “upside down.”
No one stops to talk to you
If you wear a frown.
They see you as invisible,
Not even worth their while.
They turn their faces away,
When you try to smile.
They do not know the grief inside
You try so hard to carry,
Nor do they comprehend the pain
From losses that tarry.
It’s difficult to see at first
The strength that love can give
To broken-hearted souls that need
Great courage to live.
It takes a single moment
To bestow an act of kindness,
Yet, what others say and do
Often becomes timeless.
Shine the light that lies within you
Given by a loving God.
Let its rays do the healing.
Let love be a lightning rod.
Let light overcome the darkness.
Let hope grow in every soul.
Let peace come to war-torn travelers,
For God’s grace shall make them whole.
There will be tribulations.
Loss will knock you to the ground.
You must rise to meet the challenge.
Soon, we’ll all be heaven-bound.
Be a part of building bridges.
Reach your hand to one another.
Put your differences aside,
And acknowledge he’s your brother.
Shine God’s light. Shine your light
Even in the darkest night.
Always try to do what’s right.
God’s protection is in sight.
Never give up on being hopeful,
For the soul needs hope to survive.
It’s what keeps you ever moving
When you are treading to stay alive.
Never give up on loving another,
Even when love is not returned.
Love takes time to enter the heart
Of a life that’s been horribly ruined.
Never give up believing in God,
When He seems so far away.
It’s when you need Him the most,
You must take time to pray.
Never give up on finding peace.
You’ll find it waiting inside.
It comes when you reach acceptance
And let go of your foolish pride.
The things of this world distract us
From reaching our highest goals.
We’ll find in silence and nature
A way to nurture our souls.
When a soul is nurtured and peaceful,
It is filled with an endless love;
And it seeks to connect those in need
With a merciful God above.
All the light we cannot see,
The measure of eternity
Lie behind heaven’s gate
And like most, we must wait.
There is work to be done
Before the setting of the sun.
We must find our purpose here
And lose the things we hold most dear.
Christ appeared to set us free,
But paid the cost at Calvary.
He did not have a painless life.
He dealt with so much endless strife.
He persevered despite the jeers,
Fulfilled His purpose through the years,
Gave us life forever more,
And gave us wings so we could soar.
We have gifts from God to give
that can improve the will to live
Of weary souls who’ve had enough
And find it hard to still be tough.
We need to remember well
God’s message we must always tell:
Love is our purpose here on earth
And life eternal through Christ’s birth.

There once was a bird
who had no song.
He would try to sing,
but it felt all wrong.
His heart was broken.
His mother had died.
He felt so lost and
He thought he would
never sing a tune.
So he tried his best
to bay at the moon.
But it felt all wrong,
and he fell asleep.
When the morning came,
he could only weep.
He refused to sit
in his nest all day.
So he chirped with birds
along the way.
They introduced him
He finally felt that
he could mend.
On one of his flights,
He met a brown bird,
and he fell in love
with just a word.
They built a nest
and lined it with care.
Soon, little birds
The bird who thought
he could not sing,
lifted his feathers
and took wing.
He sang, ” Cheer,cheer, “
with such great love,
That God sent him praise
from the heavens above.
When your heart is feeling anxious
And the world is spinning round,
When your legs keep on shaking
And your lips can’t make a sound,
Stop, whatever you are doing,
Sing a little song of joy.
Give thanks to God, The Father,
For the blessings of your boy.
When you feel like evil’s winning
And there’s nothing you can do,
Sing a song for the warrior
Who lives inside of you.
When you see that souls are hurting
And there’s nothing left to say,
Raise your voice and sing of comfort.
Hold them close for just a day.
Sing of beauty all around you:
How God paints the bluest sky
With the colors of the rainbow
When night is drawing nigh.
Sing a song of joy and laughter.
Sing of blessings from above
And spiritual connections
That reflect God’s greatest love.
