I’ve seen the light
and it’s in you.
In everything you are
and in everything you do.
It’s a perfect light
that shines for all to see.
It radiates from you
and has pierced the heart of me.
The light is from a friend.
It’s a light that keeps me warm.
It lets me know how loved I am
and keeps me safe from harm.
To you my friends I am thankful
in each and every way.
For you lift my spirits up
with every passing day.
To know that you are there for me
it makes me feel alive.
Because it is your friendship light
upon which my love thrives.
So ‘Thank You’ isn’t good enough
they are the only words I know.
It is your light of friendship
That gives my world it’s glow.
Thanks for sharing your light with me
For it is the simple things in life
That are truly unforgettable.
If the sky above seems cloudy,
And you are left out in the rain,
If you are searching for a rainbow,
But the colors bring you pain,
If your world is not revolving,
And there is no end in sight,
If you are looking for the sunshine,
But all you see is night,
If all around are smiling,
But all you can do is frown,
If you are tired of all this living,
When life just brings you down,
Then look beyond your teardrops,
At the wonders of this land,
The beauty of a flower,
Like velvet in your hand.
Feel the air around you,
The smell of new mown hay,
Laughing children in the park,
The innocence there at play,
Imagine floating with a butterfly,
As she flutters between the trees,
Or the whispers of the ocean,
On warm hot summer’s breeze,
Think of the taste of candy floss,
As it melts upon your tongue,
Or the melody of morning birds,
As they greet each day with song,
Remember words of beauty,
Told in your mother’s embrace,
Feel the gentleness of her touch,
As she softly kissed your face,
Seek the good within you,
Cast the clouds from your sky,
Don’t look toward the pavement,
But hold your head up high,
Thank not what life owes you,
But of all you have to give,
Forget about tomorrow,
Then you can start to live.
So Bless this age you are living in,
With the gifts you can bestow,
Don’t disregard the stream of life,
Go gently with the flow.
