Promise"I want you to promise me something."
We were sitting on the grass, and I inched closer to him. "What is it?"
"Promise me that when I get to New York, you'll enjoy everything even though I won't be here."
I was silent. It was going to be hard for me......
"Of course I will." I said after a moment of silence.
"I want you to be happy." He said, not totally convinced and wrapping his arms around me.
"I will, don't worry. I mean, I'll miss you, but I'll be happy." And I meant every word, for a promise is a promise.
Lost in your eyes...
Lost in your smile...
Lost in your lips...
Lost in your light...
Lost in your shine...
I'm lost in everything that's you.
Kindness and Charity
My child, when you help someone, don't reprimand him at the same time.
When you make a gift, don't say anything that hurts.
Your words count for more than what you give.
Eden dew gives some relief during a spell of hot weather.
Yes, kind words are more effective than the best of gifts, and if you are really concerned, you will give both.
It is stupid to be unkind and insulting.
No one's eyes are going to sparkle at a gift that you resent giving.
A Prayer for Help
Help us, Lord!
There is not a good person left;
Honest people can no longer be found.
All of them lie to one another;
They deceive each other with flattery.
Silence those flattering tongues, O Lord!
Close those boastful mouths that say,
"With out words we get what we want.
We will say what we wish,
And no one can stop us."
"But now I will come," says the Lord,
"because the needy are oppressed
And the persecuted groan in pain.
I will give them the security they long for."
The promises of the Lord can be trusted;
They are as genuine as silver
Refined seven times in the furnace.
The wicked are everywhere,
And everyone praises what is evil.
Keep us always safe, O Lord,
And preserve us from such people.
There is no excuse for unjustified anger;
It can bring about your downfall.
Wait and be patient,
And later you will be glad.
Keep quiet until the right time to speak,
And you will gain a reputation for good sense.
Don't be controlled by your lust;
Keep your passions in check.
If you allow yourself to satisfy your every desire,
You will be a joke to your enemies.
Don't indulge in luxurious living;
The expense of it will ruin you.
Don't make yourself a beggar by borrowing for expensive banquets
When you don't have enough money for your own.
If you do, you will never get rich;
If you don't pay attention to small matters,
You will gradually ruin yourself.
Wine and women make sensible men do foolish things.
A man who goes to prostitutes gets more and more careless,
And that carelessness will cost him his life.
Worms will feed on his decaying body.
It is silly to trust people too quickly.
If you sin, you are hurting yourself.
If wickedness makes you happy,
You will be condemned.
Fourth of JulyToday is a day of fun and laughter;
Today is supposed to be filled with happiness,
And spending time with family and friends,
Taking the time to say "I love you."
Why say I love you
On such a festive day?
Cheesy moments such as these
Can wait until the end or tomorrow.
Or maybe never.
As I read this to you,
Take to heart,
That it comes mostly from me,
With my girlfriend's regards.
It's been rough,
But I think I finally found the time,
To at least be a little cheesy with you;
So I love you.
I love you for supporting me;
I love you for teaching me;
I love you for toughening me up;
I love you for having me as your son.
Happy Fourth of July.
Let's make it count this year.
Let this poem,
Make this Fourth of July a good one.
Love He Never HadWhen I kissed her,
The taste of her caramel frappachino filled my mouth.
I love her so much;
She's my angel from heaven;
She made me better and changed me,
And I thank her for that.
Your CallBum bum bum bum bum bum
My heartbeat quickens.
What is making it do that?
Is it lack of air?
Or is it because it's my time to go?
Now my heartbeat slows.
My vision is blurring.
Lord, why must I go so young?
I see the faces all fade away
And my love
They are all fading,
As you slowly call me
To my rightful home.
My heartbeat stops.
I fade into nothingness.
Everything is black.
I open my eyes,
And see those faces once again.
I guess my mission here on earth wasn't completed yet, Lord.
Thank You for sending me back;
Not only for the sake of seeing family, friends, and my love,
But for following You and what You have planned for me as well.
