Words To Dream By


I write these words to touch your heart,
You must read them by the light of love;
Get comfortable in the arms of a dream,
Pull down a star from above

Wrap yourself in my warm embrace,
Doves of peace will be standing by;
And I'll send an angel of happiness
To chase dark clouds from your sky

Gather a handful of sunbeams,
Carefully..... so they don't come apart;
Then I'll grab a handful of moonbeams,
We'll braid them and bind our hearts

Listen for songs of the robin,
All the sweetest notes you can find;
Weave them together with a summer breeze,
And let them caress your mind

This life is often hard and cruel,
Sometimes, problems get out of hand;
Once in a while, let's get lost in a dream,
Let's take all the joy that we can

Poem of the Day

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
