A Family is Like a Circle // By Nicole M. O’Neil

A family is like a circle

the connection never ends

and even if at times it breaks

in time it always mends…

Summer Memories by Teresa Dearing

Hot pavement burns the feet,

Cool green grass what a treat.

 

Sand stuck between the toes,

Sun burnt skin on the nose.

 

Cotton clouds floating by,

Baby blue paints the sky.

 

Kids running out to play,

School is out, happy day.

 

Summer smells fill the air,

As we play with out care.

 

Waiting lines, ice cream stands,

Young and old are the fans.

 

All nature’s running high,

Summers breeze brush the sky.

 

Pools and waves cool the skin,

What a day for a friend.

 

Tired, sleepy children cry,

Once more, they want to try.

 

Visit family, see friends,

All too soon summer ends.

 

Soon tired of summer’s heat,

Autumn brings cool relief.

 

Cool days turn green to gold,

Summer memories~we hold.

Gradient Hourglass

Some time ago, I remember what my great aunt said:

“Oh, there is more than day and light.”

“Look far beyond what comes to sight.”

At five of age, I went to sleep, head on the bed.

 

Now prime in youth, my future strong and heart in beat.

“Life complete,” I thought, “Still what could

My dear Aunt Faith have meant. I’m good.”

I’m twenty now, my brain still can’t rest in its seat.

 

Like stormy clouds, my hair is grey; my tears are pale

“I see what she had meant to say”

The present and the future, day

But past and the old are knights to guide us on our tales.

Winnie the Pooh’s Poem (A. A. Wilne)

If there ever comes a day

When we can’t be together,

Keep me in your heart,

I’ll stay there forever.

Always There

Always There – Ryan C. Wilks

You’re always there.

When I am sad, mad

or just having a bad day,

You’re always there.

Doesn’t matter what mood I’m in,

You’re always there.

Thank you very much,

I really appreciate it.

I love the friendship we share

but most of all I love you.

You’re always there

The sound of your soothing voice

is like the sound of a chorus of angels

that fill my heart with joy

No matter how far or near,

You’re always there

Forever in my heart

you will be for years and years.

Through thick and thin we will stand.

You’re always there

We will always be friends forever and ever

You’re always there

When it comes down to it,

I will always be there for you

And

You will always be there for me

Hope

Hope – Siddharth Anand

Do you believe, in what you see

do you believe in reality

do you believe in the sun that’s bright

do you believe in the stars in the night

 

Do you believe in the birds that fly

do you believe in clouds and the sky

do you believe in wind that flows

do you believe in moon that glows

do you believe in light

 

Do you believe the spoken word

do you believe the things you’ve heard

do you believe in the final answer

do you believe in the swirling dancer

 

Do you believe in sound and sight

do you believe in moments bright

do you believe in taste and touch

do you believe that much

 

Do you believe in the soul inside

do you believe in ecstasy and delight

do you believe in glory and god

do you believe in that thought

 

Do you believe in the sky above

do you believe in love

 

Do you believe in the heaven and the earth

do you believe in death and birth

do you believe in life

 

open your eyes with hope within

open the door, let light reach in

if you believe, then you’ll win.

If…

If – Rudyard Kipling

 

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too:

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

 

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same:.

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;

 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings,

And never breathe a word about your loss:

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

 

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much:

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
