O God, Bless All the Children

O God, Bless all the children and keep them safe.
Be with them as they learn the things in life.
May their hearts always love.
Keep them from despair as much as possible.
In replace, let them receive all happiness and joy
In the love we receive from Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Love Is Life

Life begins when our God puts us here.
Everybody’s happy and full of cheer.
You start to grow to love things forever.
But people die, you’re not always together.
So your heart learns to always hurt.
With people coming and going, it’s a curse.
The lasting curse of love, life, pain.
You’re to try to survive before you go insane.
People who are here just hurt you more.
They don’t realize how much they’re cared for.
You laugh, cry, smile, and hurt inside.
When the feelings get strong, they’re hard to hide.
Eventually you learn it’ll never go away.
So you work it out and start a new day.
You change your heart, though it’s a hard strife.
But the thing you’ve learned is love is life.

Lost Love, Yet Gained Friend

When your world has lost its reason,
There is always a new coming season.
Life wouldn’t keep going if it wasn’t true.
And life has been some good to you.
For the love you lost at least had came.
Or otherwise you wouldn’t even know their name.
Maybe it’s over, at least there was the time you had.
They’re memories to last forever, no matter good or bad.
How you look at them is how they feel.
They’re a part of your love that’s always real.
But when it all feels bad, it’s not the end.
You may have lost your love, but you’ve gained a friend.

A home of peace and all art free,
Tis my mansion… come with me.
Belongs to all of us and our Lord.
Sing His song, for it is our chore.
Streets of gold and no war to fight.
Tis quiet and beautiful day and night.
My home in the sky, along with you,
And most of all our precious Father too.
Love like none other can not be found.
Tis in the breeze, blowing swiftly around.
Praise to His name, for Thou art great.
We are all awaiting for that glorious date.
Sin no more, all have left and gone.
And now my voice sings of His song.
Now I shalt peacefully rest forever.
But what I pray for is us together.

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a day of caring,
And a beautiful day for sharing.
Love is the meaning of the tale.
Everyone hears of a church bell.
No one should give love a pass.
True love is the one that lasts.
If everyone could feel the sense so great,
Nobody would miss the chance to celebrate.
Everybody should love somebody in their days.
So celebrate Valentine’s in such loving ways.

My Valentine Love

Love me now, love me forever.
May we always be together.
It’s time for loving on a special day.
And I love you in such a special way.
My heart is with you and will always be.
There is no doubt you feel the same for me.
Valentine’s Day was created for us.
We’ll love forever, for Valentine’s sake, we must.
