"If you walk around thinking that the world owes you something, you will not only be challenged by life but also defeated. The world owes you nothing! You owe it to the world to challenge life."

Find a Star
Twinkle twinkle little star
from you, my love I wont be far,
Up above the sky so high
you'll be the twinkle in my eye,
Look to the sky and make a wish
knowing it's you that I miss,
You I love and you I see
when bright stars shine their light on me,
For when you look into the sky
sometimes the stars dont seem so high,
Before you're off to bed at night
dream with me by our starlight,
Make a wish that could come true
know that I am dreaming of you,
Wanting you badly here with me
in my heart you'll always be,
So dont give up when dreams seem far
just look up and find a star...

When we looked into our future June 1996
there were many things we'd see,
but the most important thing for us
was to have a family..
We were married for awhile
and decided it was time,
to make a son or daughter
that we'd call his and mine..
We found out I was pregnant
but it didnt go as planned,
the baby didn't make it
so we put it in Gods hand..
The second pregnancy ended
as the first I'm sad to say,
we felt all alone again
with no baby on the way..
Although our hearts were breaking
and our dreams so far away,
we couldn't quite give up
where there's a will- there's a way..
Once again the test turned pink
one more time we'd try,
to hold on to a baby
and hope not to say good-bye..
Days turned into weeks and months
as our baby grew big and strong,
our excitement grew day by day
although our fear was never gone..
Feeling kicks and movements
the little things we'd share,
loving the reminder
that our baby was growing there..
The day came for the ultrasound
and we were over-joyed,
to find out that our baby
was a healthy baby boy..
A little boy to play with
and teach right from wrong,
to tell we love him every day
to sing his favorite song..
So many plans we had for him
so much time remained,
we would have with our little boy
Austin, would be his name..
Then the dreadful day came
when no heartbeat could be found,
as the doctors eyes filled with sadness
noone made a sound..
He looked at us then turned away
and sat down as he sighed,
"I'm very sorry for you" he said
"Somehow your baby has died.."
Our dreams broke into pieces
our hearts felt so sad,
feeling like we'd lost
everything we had..
Family tried to comfort us
not knowing what to say,
I wish a hug from a friend
could have taken the pain away..
We wouldn't get to hold him
or look into his eyes,
wouldn't hear him laugh
or ever hear him cry..
Couldn't hold his hand
or rock him in the chair,
Why did this happen???
God this isn't fair!
We cant put our cheek to his
or calm him from bad dreams,
we would never get the chance
to show him what love means..
They say there's life in heaven
and one day our arms will hold,
our sweet little boy
atleast that's what we're told..
I hope that it is true
I hope one day we'll see,
a little boy named Austin
that looks like him and me..
Many years have passed since then February 2002
we learned how to move on,
but the wanting of a family
was never really gone..
We found out I was pregnant
as the new year rolled in,
we were very excited
as our new life was to begin..
The pregnancy went great this time
little "Dillon" was so strong,
but at the end of the 6th month
they said he wont last long..
I was in the hospital for many weeks
trying to hold on,
he is so small, can he live
or will another baby be gone?..
He was born 3 months early
1 pound 6 ounces he weighed,
it broke my heart to look at him
and hold his tiny hand as he layed..
He was so small and fragile
on a ventilater to help him breathe,
tubes and wires everywhere
to give him what he needs..
Many ups and downs we'd go
They tried to prepare,
but nothing that they said to us
made sense when we were there..
7 months have passed since then
but we never will forget,
what we went through to get him here
we never will regret..
He is a big boy now
10 pounds is what he weighs,
he has a brand new trache to breathe
and smiles through his days..
He is my inspiration
"My hero" I often call,
a little boy so full of life
who has been through it all..
I ask everyone to pray for him
so he can live and come home soon,
I want him to see the wonderfuls in life
the sun, the stars, the moon..
May he always feel our love for him
and know what we've gone through,
but know my dear sweet Dillon-
We would do it over again
for just one more day with you.....
2 1/2 more months are gone May 2002
we had to say good-bye,
sweet Dillon couldn't make it
no matter how hard he tried..
He fought so hard and was so strong
but his body just gave out,
we had done all we could for him
for that there was no doubt..
His fighting was making him suffer
more and more each day,
he couldn't hold his head anymore
and never wanted to play..
He slept alot and couldn't reach
for us to hold him tight,
he couldn't even handle
being picked up and rocked at night..
His body was so tired
no more smiles upon his face,
we had to let him die
with dignity and grace..
All the nurses came to see him
and kissed him one last time,
told him that they loved him
and then the turn was mine..
I picked him up and held him tight
told him that I was so proud,
but it was time for him to play
with his siblings on the clouds..
I thanked him for letting me be his mom
that he made my life so blessed,
I told him that I loved him
and it was time for him to rest..
No more pain that he would feel
suffering would be no more,
then I handed him to his dad
and I walked out the door..
I couldnt stand to see
the last breath that he would take,
and I was so afraid
of the sounds that he would make..
The doctor turned the machine off
and kneeled to rub his head,
Dillon didnt look at him
he looked at his daddy instead..
He said he looked so peaceful
he didnt try to fight,
he just closed his eyes
as if he was saying- "I'll be alright.."
Dad held him until his breaths were gone
and the doctor shook his head,
grandma held him until his heart stopped
then they layed him in his bed..
I went back in to see him
one last time I'd feel his face,
holding all of the memories tight
that time cant even erase..
I'm tired of all the wondering
of why this happened to me,
I'm tired of asking questions
where no answers will ever be..
All I know is my love for them
will always be in my heart,
We will never get over the losses
but "dealing" with it, we will start..
We have no choice but to move on
all decisions have been made,
We know we made the right ones
although we were afraid..
Dillon is waiting in heaven
sitting on Gods knee,
listening to stories
of him, his dad and me..
I hope Gods arms feel like mine
holding him gently while he sleeps,
and I hope they all hear my prayers
"I pray the Lord my soul to keep.."
So until the day we are with you all
may you be close at Gods reach,
one day we will be with you all
and we will finally be complete..

(Proud "mommy" of all my angels)
MY DAUGHTER IS TURNING SIXTEEN TODAY,
MY SWEET, TINY BABY I HOPED SHEíD STAY.
BUT NOW I CAN SEE HOW BIG SHEíS GROWN,
JUST LIKE A PRINCESS UPON A THRONE.
SHEíS BLESSED MY HEART WITH ALL OF HER LOVE,
A WONDERFUL BLESSING THAT CAME FROM ABOVE.
I HOPE THAT I HAVE SHOWN HER THE RIGHT PATH TO GO,
BUT ITíS HER WHO SHOWN ME, AND HOW DID SHE KNOW.
SHE HAS SHOWN JUST HOW SPECIAL A CHILD CAN BE,
AND FILLED ME WITH GREATFUL LOVE THAT I SEE.
HER SPIRIT LIFTS ME AS HIGH AS THE SKIES,
AND TO SEE THE LOVE SHE HOLDS IN HER EYES.
SHEíS SO FORGIVING, SO CARING AND TRUE,
I HOPE THAT SHE SEES HOW MUCH SHE CAN DO.
ITíS BEEN YEARS SINCE I HELD HER, A BABY SO SMALL,
AND WITH EACH PASSING DAY SHE GROWS SO TALL.
BUT NOT ONLY IN HEIGHT DOES SHE SORE SO HIGH,
ITíS ALSO HER COURAGE SHE WILL NEVER LET DIE.
SHE FLIES THROUGH LIFE AS IF ON BUTTERFLY WINGS,
NEVER KNOWING FOR SURE WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS.
MY SWEET LITTLE GIFT FROM THE HEAVENS ABOVE,
TO MY DAUGHTER I GIVE MY ETERNAL LOVE.
I GO THROUGH MY DAY JUST MISSING YOU,
I LOOK AT OUR PICTURE OF JUST US TWO.
I HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOUíRE DOING FINE,
THE DAY WILL COME WHEN YOUíLL BE ALL MINE.
THE HOPES AND DREAMS THAT WE BOTH SHARE,
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IíLL ALWAYS BE THERE.
I THINK OF THE TIME WHEN I SAW YOU LAST,
AND HOW THE HANDS OF TIME WENT BY SO FAST.
I WISH I COULD HOLD YOU SO CLOSE TO ME,
MY LONGING FOR YOU IS SO CLEAR TO SEE.
I DREAM EACH NIGHT TO HAVE YOU NEAR,
EVERY MOMENT THAT PASSES OUR LOVE IS CLEAR.
I CHARISH THE TIME WE SPEND TOGETHER,
I WANT TO BE ABLE TO LOVE YOU FOREVER.
YOU HAVE BRIGHTENED MY LIFE FROM THE VERY START,
AND FROM THAT DAY ON YOU CAPTURED MY HEART.
I WAKE IN THE MORNING THINKING OF YOU,
AND LAY DOWN EACH NIGHT STILL MISSING YOUÖ
Tina Marie Howard 30/08/2002
AS I WOKE UP THIS MORNING, I FELT SO COLD AND ALL ALONE.
I WONDERED THROUGH MY DAY, AND KNEW ALL HOPE WAS GONE.
I TOOK OUT A LETTER, WRITTEN RIGHT FROM YOUR HEART.
BEGAN TO READ YOUR WORDS, BUT COULDNíT GET PASS THE START.
MY EYES WERE FILLED WITH TEARS, AND THEY FELL LIKE APRIL SHOWERS.
OUR LOVE FELT SO GOOD TO ME, AND WAS FILLED WITH SO MUCH POWER.
I WANT TO SHARE MY FEELINGS WITH YOU, BUT WHERE DO I BEGIN.
SO MANY THINGS ARE ON MY MIND AND I FEEL SO DISTANT AGAIN.
PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I DID SO WRONG, I KNOW I CAN MAKE IT RIGHT.
EVEN IF IT HURTS TO TELL ME, I KNOW YOUíLL SHOW ME THE LIGHT.
MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THERE, MY HEART FOREVER TRUE.
I WANTED TO SHARE SO MUCH WITH YOU, BUT NOW THE END IS DUE.
SOMETHING HAPPENED SO OUT OF CONTROL THAT TURNED YOUR LOVE TO FEAR.
THE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES OF OUR LOVE WILL ALWAYS KEEP ME NEAR.
AS I CLOSE MY EYES, AND THINK OF OUR LOVE, I KNOW MY FEELINGS WERE TRUE.
NOW AS I GO TO SLEEP TONIGHT, MY DREAMS ARE FILLED WITH MEMORIES OF YOU.
TOMORROW IíLL WAKE, AND CONTINUE MY LIFE, WITH MORE OF MY LONELY DAYS.

"Image Of You"
I'll paint my love in shades of blue
I'll paint my soul to be with you
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth to match my own
I'll draw your arms around my waist
And then all doubt I shall erase
I'll paint the rain that softly lands
On the crescents of your hands
I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
A calming look to quell your fears
A silhouette of dark and light
While we hold each other tight
I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we will never part
I'll paint the stars in the evening sky
Draw their light into your eyes
I'll draw a striking touch of grace
That shows the tenderness of your face
I'll trace your hands to hold in mine
A touching kiss to mark the time
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn, so much to try
I'll paint the truth to show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine
And with this ring our lives will start
In swearing that we'll never part
I offer love you cannot buy
Devoted love until we die
Tung Nguyen 29/08/2002
I cry all day and all night
Because we had a very big fight
I didnâ ôt mean the stuff that I said
So lets go home and back to bed
I cant stand seeing you out of my sight
You are my guide straight up into the light
You are my happiness, my love, my everything
I cant what for whatâ ôs life is going to bring
I want to grow old with you and die
Because I know I cant tell a lie
That I want to be buried right next to you
And on my grave it will say "I Love You."

Why do you want to keep me in this pain?
Just love me, or let me breathe again.
Just hold me tight or push me away
Tell me to leave or beg me to stay
Youíre like the weather, sunshine then rain
All this confusion, Iím going insane
I have nowhere to turn, donít know what to do
Can I turn love away, or shall I cling to you
What are you doing? How do you feel?
I still taste your skin; can this be for real?
Why does my heart race, whenever youíre near?
Is it my pleasure, or my greatest fear?
How can I love you like so long ago?
Was our love for real, or all just a show?
I can feel a change, like leaves on a tree.
Itís unbelievably clear, you donít need me.
Iím flowing like the river, steady and strong.
I feel an evolution. It wonít be too long.
I must live without you. It just takes time.
I wonít lie baby, I miss you, sometimes.
I still love you, and I still care.
Guess itís true, huh? Lifeís not always fair.
As time heals wounds, scars may remain.
Iíll remember the good times, and not all the pain.
Iíll find me another. Iím sure you will too.
So sad that it couldnít be forever, me and you.
But life has a way of knowing all things.
Iím letting you fly, now give me my wings.
Iíll soar like a bird, and find a new way.
Our life together is overÖ
What more can I say?
Here is another on a totally different subject.......
I canít see tomorrow
Iím living for today
I donít know my future
Whatís coming, I canít say
I canít tell ya baby,
Iíll love you for all years
Iíve said that before, child
And cried so many tears
And I canít pick the color
Of my next wedding dress
I canít think of that now
Iím sorry, I confess
That I donít know if youíll be
In my life for good
I wish that I knew different
And boy, I guess I should
I do know that I love you
For this moment right now
Can I love you always?
I will, if I learn how
So baby, donít be angry
And baby, donít be so sad
Just take what I can give you
It ainít all that bad
Amanda Baker 8/02
~I need someone there someone to pull me back from the edge. I need someone
to pull me up from the ledge. I need someone there to take away the knife. I
need someone to help me realize there is more to life. I need someone there
to convince me to stop smoking weed.
I need someone there to tell me if I keep it up I'll never suceed. I need
someone there to make me put down the bottle of tylenol. I need someone
there to catch me when I fall. I need someone to wipe my tears as I cry.
I need someone to remind me I dont deserve to die. I need someone there for
me just as you do too. I needed that someone and that someone was you Jenn
A Fatherís love
Her hair was up in a ponytail
Her favorite dress tied with a
Today was Daddy's Day at school,
and she couldn't wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay
home. Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
of why he wasn't there today.
But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter
home. But the little girl went to
school, Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never saw
A dad who never calls.
There were daddies along the wall
in back,For everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
Anxious in their seats.
One by one the teacher called,
A student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.
At last the teacher called her
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.
"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out.
"She probably doesn't have one,"
Another student dared to shout.
And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day."
The words did not offend her,
As she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on.
And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
came words incredibly unique.
"My Daddy couldn't be here,
Because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.
And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so.
He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
and taught me to fly a kite.
We used to share fudge sundaes,
And ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him,
I'm not standing here alone.
"Cause my daddy's always with me,
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart"
With that, her little hand reached
And lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
Beneath her favorite dress.
And from somewhere in the crowd of
dads, Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years?
For she stood up for the love
of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.
And when she dropped her hand back down
staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.
"I love my daddy very much,
He's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
but heaven's just too far.
You see he was a fireman
and died just this past year
when airplanes hit the towers
and taught Americans to fear.
But sometimes when I close my
eyes, It's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
and saw him there that day.
And to her mother's amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and
children, All starting to close their eyes.
Who knows what they saw before them,
Who know what they felt inside?
Perhaps for merely a second,
They saw him at her side.
"I know you're with me Daddy,"
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
Of those once filled with doubt.
Not one in that room could explain it,
For each of their eyes had been
closed. But there on the desk beside her,
was a fragrant long-stemmed pink
rose, and a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
By the love of her shining bright star.
And given the gift of believing,
That heaven is never too far
They say it takes a minute to find a special person,
an hour to appreciate them,
a day to love them, but then an entire
life to forget them.

ALL MY LIFE I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU!!!
Every corner and every nook; Shouts for you
Looking for that adore and lush in you
I just can't forget those gloomy eyes of yours
That sparkle that blooms the world of ours
You're the one that makes me dazzle
The shuttering eyes and that hazel
Now, when you're gone
Life is like an open mouth that speaks nothing
Nothing beyond this life
Life, what is life?
Cant express that behaviour of your
Couldn't even recognize the voice of yours
Blistering through the wind you went
Across the stream like through a vent
I was waiting for that last smile
Realized I would have to stretch a mile
Forget the agony
Forget the scrutiny
Just let me say one thing and one thing only
You're the one whose in my mind only
Now will you excuse this slave?
Forget everything and I will crave
Think about me once more
Not saying good bye you said onlyÖ

Dedicated to rhonda,
forever in my thoughts i find you always near,
as i sit upon this lonely pier,
for in my heart you're so very dear,
then along comes my deepest fears,
while my eyes shed these gentle tears;
my soul is sliced with ageless shears.
dana johns 2002
upon each and every lonely night,
laying vigil up under the burning candle-light,
i softly close my weary eyes,
with no reason to wonder why;
of the memories that fill my every dream,
ever so restless they often seem.
dana johns 2002
if nothing is ever left to chance,
no rhymes, no seasons to enhance,
without wee steps to the dance,
why then do we bother so to prance,
or to fill our hearts with high romance.
Dana Johns 20 August 2002
Love at First Sight
at the club
in the back
against the wall
with hazel eyes, and dark hair
within his smile
throughout his voice
i had a thought
a thought of love
walking toward stage
we met eyes
within my bursting heart
i declared love at first sight
with sweaty palms, and a dizzy mind
he came to talk to me
between my name and number, we sat down
both of us high off love
we had so many things in common
yet, so many differences
after hours of talking
upon our departure,
came the greatest gift.....
" i love you" and a kiss to seal it
the bell rang
and i woke up from me dream
jumping into my guys arms, with a big smile
even if hes not "MR. PERFECT"
even if hes not "MR. HANDSOME"
he still loves me for who i am
and i love him for who he is
Upon Getting to Know You
upon getting to know you
i loved you
toward a month
bettween girls liking you
beyond hanging out together
throughout grtting to know you
i loved you
within my heart
among the broken pieces
you made me feel complete
you made me feel whole
you gave me the same little butterflies, when i got my first kiss
past a dizzy month
i thought through time
i know ill miss you
i know ill dream about you
i know i want you
i know i love you
my mind is set on one
my heart is set on the another
my mind is full of wisdom
yet, my mind is full of regret
my heart is full of love
yet, my heart is full of broken pieces
mind or heart?
heart or mind?
fear of regret
fear of choice
fear of mind
fear of heart
INTO A BRAKE UP
at the phone
through the receiver
past memorable flash backs
over in a snap
behind the salty tears
underneath the violent sorrow
among the good times
throughout the joyous laughter
until a dragging tomorrow
beside a drawn-out week
after a brief month
toward a hasty year
within my heart
without more sorrow
from the past
to the future
dedicated to jason
Let Me Go
Itís not true that I have made you complete.
What you could have imbibed from me
Is just a fitting garb that can be removed
Without altering the essence of your Being.
Yes, I can be a chapter in your life that will
Certainly become negligible and later forgotten.
As for myself, each day is a learning process
To discover my inner self and learn the art of living.
Why I hate, love, lust and long for is part
Of the mysteries that make up a human being.
I know these emotions are governed by logic
That we never learn but our conscience dictates.
I love you now but Tomorrow never reveals itself.
Everything is subject to change including emotions.
But every conscience calls for the greatest love of all:
A call for recognition and love of our own Person.
One should strive for happiness to come from within,
Not from the outside forces that we can never control.
And I love you but Love never conquers all.
Self-serving romance is a poison to my soul
making me a prisoner of my own emotions.
I've discovered that only a free soul
serving for the good of more souls
can reach the highest level of happiness.
What I really need is not romantic love
but a culture of equilibrium.
It encompasses the act of balancing oneís faculties
with the objective of enriching the soul
to develop into an unselfish human being. . .
A soul yearning for the company of more souls
working together to attain most sublime form of bliss.
Emotions are just passing whims
that can destroy temples of human souls.
Equilibrium has elements of all emotions
harmonized to make life in this world
a song sang reaching the highest ladders of paradise.
It has an element of love, but not the kind we know.
A kind of letting go, release me!
