Peace To All

Enough For Everyone

It is time to understand what brings us close together

Is it our differences that we will never agree ?

The common bond of a friend that we don't see

A relative we can't stand

An arguement we had years ago that we will never forget

Money that you did not give me when I know you have more than enough

Better yet money that I borrowed and still can't find a way to payback

When I got sick and you were never around

Christmas time or a birthday that came and went with a call

I want you to know I believe in a love that survives all

That washes away the tears and the reaccuring pain

I want to be the first to say let it go

I have and so should you

There is still time to hold each other close in our hearts

For what and who we are and that should be enough

We can now reach for a new place

One that was recently found

A place of forgiveness and love

We admit our mistakes and move on

Life is to be remembered for all that is good

Not only what we give but all the good intentions that never make it

So look around you and see the changes you can make

Once you take the first step it becomes easier with time

Your world will change and so will your mind

Life is wonderful because you are here to share it with me

That is all and that is all it can ever be

Deborah Brooks I am smiling again.It is so easy when you have friends that share your most passionate loves.raciniwa The last thing I want to think about when I am mad at someone is being in love with that person.That contrast messes with every feeling I know and love.In time I will learn to love even the things I don't understand or appreciate now.I can write down my feelings and see if they change in a week or a month or in years if it takes that long.At least I am accepting to think about being nicer,kinder to those who test my patience.Each time I think about it and write about it.It is easier to love them and move on.Dim Flaxenwick For years I thought it was everyone else who had to change to be better.Now I am learning to change my ways and let them be who they want and not letting them drive me absolutely crazy for doing the most rediculious things in the world.I concentrate on making me a better person and less about what others do and don't do.Whew that was harder to write than say.daisyflowrs Just as perfect as your son when he colors on the floor.The spot you haven't seen yet.I just am so happy that you can see pass my faults(bad spelling) and improper grammar.I write from the heart and sometimes it comes out distorted and jumbled up.Maybe it is not meant to be perfect so we can work with it and make it better together.That is another idea?When we realize that the world is not just one way or one person but billions of ideas floating around and we get to choose.MMMM more thoughts????Thanx everyone for all your wonderful ideas and readings.
