A Gift

A gift

A gift may not seem significant to the bearer of the gift but it may mean
The world to the one who receives it

A gift is not always the most expensive item in the store even though that is what
You feel you need to give as a gift

A gift is something that can be really simple in the way of it being bought or being made

A gift can be one of a million things or a whole bunch of one thing

A gift means something special to the one giving it and means far more to the
One who is receiving it

A gift that comes from the heart is a heart felt gesture of friendship that can brighten
The day of the one who receives it

How Do I

How Do I

How do I show who I am when the world appears to have a plan for me
That does not let me reflect who I am

How can I truly be myself when the reflection in the mirror isn’t who I had
Expected or hoped to be

How do I tell people who I am inside or be who I am expected to be yet not
Feel so exposed and alone inside

How do I show who I am inside and not feel like I am letting everyone who means
Something to me down

How can I be myself and still live up to everyone’s expectations of who
I should be

How do I become the man I am meant to be when I feel like who I really am
Is lost in the fray making me feel like I am all alone in a sea of people

With the Change of Season

With the Change of Season

As each day passes you feel the highs and the lows that the day brings

With each passing day towards the dead of winter, you feel a loneliness that feels like
It will only grow more and more with time as you look back wondering why you feel so alone

When winter has set in and the days are cold and grey adding to the feelings of being alone,
Your one solace is that you have in your life people who care for you in ways that don’t always
Show until days like this one

With each passing day towards spring you feel that loneliness ebbing away slowly at first
With the warmth that comes with the approaching season and as you feel renewed you show
Those who were there for you and that mean so much to you that you didn’t forget
What they had done for you by being there in their time of need

when we see a child

When we see a child

When we see a child we see their potential

When we see a child we see our hopes and dreams in them

When we see a child we see the hopes and dreams we have for them

When we see a child we hope that they succeed where everyone has failed

When we see a child we dare to get them to do more than dream about the possibilities
That lay before them so they take flight

When we watch a child you will find they are smarter than they get credit for

When we watch a child we see that they can have an unbridled curiosity that can be
Mistaken for the mark of independence

When we watch a child you find that they have an inner strength that knows no limitations

In the end when we watch a child you will find that no matter their potential, no matter how smart they are or how strong they appear to be, they still need you there to guide them
To support their wings as their dreams take flight

When We Age

When we age

When we are young we think that we know everything

When we are young we think that we are invincible

When we are young we feel like we have the world in the palm of our hand

When we get we find that we still have lots to learn

When we get older we find that we are not as invincible as we thought even when
We don’t want to show it

When we get older we find that having the world in the palm of our hand was all just
An illusion created by our youth

When we get older we tend to realize that we never really had the world by the hand and
Regret the missed opportunities and the mistakes in our youth

A Friend

A friend

A friend is someone who we can associate with

A friend is someone who is someone who can keep us company

A friend is someone who we can turn to when we need someone to understand

A friend is someone who will push us to do better when we haven’t the energy to keep going

A friend is someone who always seems to find just the right way to get under our skin but yet
Keep us coming back for more

A friend is someone who always seems to know when they are needed

A friend is someone who we can talk to when there is no one else to talk too

A friend is someone who is missed when they are not there

A friend is someone who will stand by you when you need someone there even when
They are behind the scene helping you stay on sure footing

A friend is someone who looks up to you without knowing that you are looking up to
Them as well

A friend is someone who without knowing is seeking to do things to ask for acceptance
From those he considers his friends

A friend in the end is someone who is working hard for approval from those he feels he needs
Approval from without knowing that he already has done more than enough to earn the approval of those
Who call him friend
