Never lose the Wonder
We live in a beautiful world
Life may not seem to sparkle, nor the path before you clear,
The view may seem quite distant of things that should be near.
Within you is an emptiness, confusion caught within this day,
So look beyond that void, and let nature show you the way.
Never lose the wonder seen in a moon-lit starry night,
Or of the redness in the sky, seen in dawns early light.
Cherish those precious moments, for there is beauty everywhere,
From the butterfly upon a leaf, to the wind blowing in your hair.
Life may seem a struggle and the days seem very slow,
The past seems forgotten and of the future you do not know.
But this moment is a gift that you now hold within you hand,
From the sky high above you to the sea crashing upon its sand.
Never lose the wonder of when the Robin begins to sing,
Or of the bluebells and daffodils that bloom again each spring.
Recognise those gifts around you that are found within your life,
So relax a while with nature and ease the tension from your strife.
Letting the fear fade as hope is reborn within us
Hope reborn, a fresh new dawn,
A new life waking up within.
Fear now dies, no more the lies,
A clearer future can begin.
A tear falls, tomorrow calls,
The darkness within starts to fade.
A smile appears, no more fears,
A promise to new hope is made.
Hope now grows, our sorrow goes,
Removing the pain from our heart.
Love begins, happiness wins,
For a better life will now start.
Clear blue skies, upwards hope flies,
Released from the pains of our past.
Flying free, the eyes can see,
With a clarity that will last.
Hope lands strong, love will belong,
The past will never now return.
Sun shines bright, a golden light,
And a love within that will burn.
Candle of Hope
Light the Candle of Hope and fear’s darkness will disappear
The candle of hope, a small beacon of light,
One tiny flame that will always burn bright.
So tiny in size, that it is almost not there,
But set it alight and it will spread everywhere.
So small that you feel that it cannot last long,
But throughout all the darkness, it will shine strong.
Through all the shadows of doubt, it will hold fast,
Burning within you until all the doubts pass.
It will still shine strong during your darkest day,
Bringing you fresh hope and then lighting the way.
Chasing out those fears that are hiding in you,
For the candle of hope will always shine through.

Waking up in a new day
A new day brings new hope
Waking up each day allows a new life to begin,
Bringing a fresh chance to change this world we live in.
Whatever the dawn, we begin with a new view,
Whatever this day brings, we are beginning anew.
Whatever happened yesterday is now in the past,
This day brings new hope for a future that can last.
Open your eyes and wake up within this new light,
Let yesterday’s shadows fade back into the night.
Let today bring the wonders of a world we can share,
Let tomorrow’s dreams show us the best way to get there.
Whatever this day’s ending, let one thought remain,
We have the beauty of this world to wake to again.
You are you – do not be afraid of yourself
Being yourself, that is who you ever are,
You can never be anyone else but you.
You will always be here, never afar,
You just don’t always have a clear view.
Being yourself, is all you can ever be,
Stop searching for someone you are not.
Look at yourself and what you will see,
Is the person you have gone and forgot.
Being yourself, is the best place to start,
Just relax and you will naturally appear.
You are already a whole and not just a part,
So love yourself, for you will always be here.
Being yourself, is the person others love best,
They are not looking for someone who is new.
So take a break from the search and have a rest,
And you will find that you have always been you.
You have made it!
Journeys end, a new life is beginning at last,
And you know that the trials have all come to past.
To have reached the finish, to be filled with hope,
To have found new courage and to know you can cope.
To no longer fear any darkness you can see,
Coming out of the shadows, your spirit is free.
Coming out of the coldness, your warmth can now live,
And out of the loneliness, you have love to give.
A new life you can share with the others around,
To enjoy the happiness that you have now found.
To laugh in wonder, to see the starlight above,
To be able to smile and to share out your love.
For this journey’s path has now come to an end,
This time is all yours, and your heart will now mend.
Nothing more to fear, no more tears will now fall,
You have faced all the trails and conquered them all.
New Years Eve
A new beginning
In an ending there is a beginning,
Though it may not always seem that way.
But the world is forever spinning,
And after New Year’s Eve comes New Year’s Day.
A new year arriving at midnight,
An old year getting ready to depart.
A new beginning coming into sight,
But from the old year it does start.
From this ending you can now begin,
To change the old and find a new.
A resolution to turn round and win,
And a chance for your life to renew.
