FORGETS TO CARE
 
Everyone needs a friend
who is there everyday,
Someone to listen
to all that you say
Someone to count on
when things aren't right
Someone to help
keep your dreams in sight.
Everyone need someone
who will be there,
when it seems
everyone else,
forgets to care....

DRY YOUR EYES
 
Cling to life,
but don't let it bind you,
Hold on to dreams
and let them guide you.
 
Don't look for love
let it find you,
Let go of hate
don't hold it inside you..
 
Dry your eyes,
the world awaits you
Catch a star
and watch it shine for you..

DON'T WAIT
 
Once,
I met a man
who wanted many things.
He would sit around
and wait
but nothing ever came.
Throughout his life,
I had never known him
to make a move
to acquire what he wanted,
and to this day
he sits and waits
empty handed
and broken hearted...

WHERE I BEGIN
 
I am on the outside
looking in..
I can't find the place
where I begin...
I look around
for a path to follow..
But fall behind
when I stop to wallow...
Everyone else
has gone their own way...
But the past
has held me back to stay...
