POEM'S DEDICATED TO MY REBA SOUL SISTER!

This section is dedicated to you, Mary Durlin, for being the best friend
I've ever had, the sister I never had, and my soul sister! I love you Mary! 
These are for you. 

THE DREAM

I dreamed a dream of meeting someone.
The one who inspires me to live life to itís fullest!
The one who lifts me up when Iím down.
The one who seems so close yet is so far away.


I donít have to dream anymore.
God has answered my prayer.
You are that one. 
My hero, my friend, my sister.


CANDLE IN THE WINDOW

You shine in my eyes.
You warm my heart.
You are the candle in my window.

You brighten my days.
You bring joy to heart.
You are an answered prayer.


You guide me through the darkness.
You are light in my heart.
You are the candle on my window.


AN ANSWERED PRAYER

Friend ,
you make me smile when no one else can.
You bring the sun when darkness threatens.


Friend,
You are the one person I trust most.
The one I truly feel I can tell my deepest secrets.

Friend,
When everyone else would laugh, you donít.
When no one else will listen, you will.

Friend,
You are always waiting when I need you.
I can always count on you to be there with a shoulder to cry on.

Friend,
You except all of me, the good and the bad.
When everyone else turns away you take my hand.

Friend, 
You are a rock I can lean on when I need support.
You stand behind me when no one else will.

Friend,
You are the sister I never had.
You are my true soul mate!

Friend,
You are truly an answered prayer.
God truly blessed me when he sent you into my life.

Thank you my dear friend.

SISTERS

We argue, we fight.

We forgive, we make up.

We laugh, we cry.

We are sisters, we are friends!

Reaching out to touch peopleís hearts,
Rushing to help out wherever thereís a need.

Eyes running through an entire audience drawing them in,
Elegant,

Beautiful on the inside and out,
Bringing out the best in people,
Bursting with love.

Absolutely gorgeous,
Accepting of us all,
A number one in every way!

REBA!

SHE WHO INSPIRES ME!

I want to meet her so much.
I want to meet the person who inspires me.

She inspires me to reach for the stars.
She inspires me to never quit, even when the going gets tough.

She inspires me to open my heart  to others.
She inspires me to be loving and compassionate.

She inspires me to be a hard worker.
She inspires me to be honest and trustworthy.

She inspires me to be creative.
She inspires me to be open to new ideas.

Who is this person who has inspired me to do such wonderful things?
It is none other than Reba McEntire!

REBA  comforts and heals.
REBA gives encouragement and support.
REBA  reaches out to those in need.


FROM THE HEART

Her music touches you so deeply and moves you so strongly.
Her voice reaches in and wraps your heart in itís warm embrace.
Her heart is so caring and so compassionate.
Her heart is in everything she does and says.





MISC. POETRY

This section contains misc. poetry with many different themes. Some are sad
and some are deep and some ore happy and light.Some are inspired by God. 
I added this section in hopes that I might touch someone's heart or give them what they need to
hear. I hope you enjoy these. 

(This poem was inspired by a dream I had. I really believe it was a 
 messenge from God.)

I dreamed I lost my glasses. I lost  them in a busy place. 
I looked and I looked but Ijust couldnít find them. 
Just when Iíd lost all hope and had left the crowd I reached up
and touched my face and there they were.
My glasses were with me all the time,
I was just too blind to see.

God, sometimes I treat you like this. 
Though you are so close I cannot see you. 
I look and I look and I just canít see you there with me. 
Not until I am alone with you can I really see you again. 
I guess I need to give you more time Lord. 
I need to leave the busy crowd behind and really seek you all by myself. 
Because you are there, Lord. Waiting. Waiting for me to find you.

GROWING APART

I thought you and I would always be close.
But I can see now that I was wrong.
Your life goes on and mine seems so much in a rut.

I cannot hope to keep up with you.
I must dig my way out and hope to find you when I reach the top of my rut.

It is not your fault, only mine. 
You have the confidence that I lack.
You have courage.
You are strong and growing.

I am still searching.
Searching for strength.
Searching for courage.

When will I ever find it?
Only God can answer my question.

But I fear that if I donít find it.
Then you and I can only grow farther apart.

For how can two people hope to stay together
When one is growing up and the other is stuck in a rut?
 
I cannot grow up until I find the answers I need.

I love you my friend, but I am not worthy of you until I grow  to meet you.

I only hope that one day I find you again.


LOST

I fall.
You reach out your hand.

I am afraid.

Will you reject me when you see who I really am?
Will you want to know me if I open my heart to you?
Will you turn away?

I am afraid.

You  are still reaching out to me.

I am afraid.
Yet, still you reach out to me.

What do you want with me?
I donít know why you want to help me?
Me, who has done such wrong.
Why? 

Your hand is still there,
waiting...

I am afraid.
I turn away.

You turn away.
You cannot help me, if I will not take your hand.
You have no choice but to reject me.

What have I missed out on?
What have I done?

I am alone once again.

Why am I so afraid?

So afraid of love, friendship, kindness, and togetherness.

I am alone, lost.

QUESTIONS                                ANSWERS

When is it my time?			     When God prepares me.
When is it my turn?			     When God knows Iím ready.
Why not me?				         Only God knows the answer to that.

Why are my dreams so allusive?	 It wouldnít be any fun if dreams were easy.
Should I stop dreaming?          Never stop dreaming.
Should I give up on my hopes?    Never stop hoping.
                         
                     Never stop dreaming, hoping, and praying.
                          Love will find  a way.
                              In God there is ALWAYS HOPE!


ALLUSIVE DREAM

I can almost touch it.
Yet when I reach, it is gone.

I can almost see it.
Yet when I look, it is gone.

That allusive dream.
A dream that is so real yet so much a fantasy.

Why canít it be true?
Itís not meant to be, my mind tells me.

Yet my heart will not let me give up
on this allusive dream.

RAINING ON THE INSIDE

How can I go on through the day when inside Iím crying?
Guess Iíll just have push the pain deep inside and go on.

Iím raining on the inside.
Inside I feel like dying.
Iím raining on the inside.
The tears well up inside my heart and soul.
Only in the darkness can they fall.

WHEN IS IT MY TIME?

Lord help me find my way.
Help me to find my one moment in time.
Lord why canít it be me for once?

Why donít my dreams come true?
Whenís it my time?
Why canít it be me?
Why not me?
When will it be my time?

Lord I know only you know whatís in store for me.
I feel like Iím always waiting...
Waiting for the sun to shine on me.

Why donít my dreams come true?
When will my time come?
Why canít it be me?
Why not me?
When will it be my time?

Lord I will go on waiting for my time.

PEACE

Peace is having good friends by your side.
Peace is having family you can count on.
Peace is being loved.
Peace is loving someone.
Peace is happiness and sadness.
Peace is having a place to belong.
Peace is having Jesus in your heart.

LOST AND FOUND

I  wandered unknown paths,
with no map or chart to show me the way,
with no hand to guide to me, 
I was alone and lost.

Lost and confused I tripped and fell.
I was at my lowest, in the dirt.
I cried.

Then I looked up through my tears
and you were there.
You were there waiting...
Waiting with  a hand stretched out.

Frightened, yet oddly comforted,
I took your hand.

In that one touch I felt, love,
warmth, and peace.
I knew it was so right to take 
your hand.

You lifted me up and led
me through the confusing and twisted paths.
And suddenly we were standing at a small path.

This path was lined with flowers and it was so
bright and warm. 

And though it was so small, somehow I knew
it was right  to take it. 

Together we followed that path. 
You leading me and sometimes even carrying me. 
But I no longer felt lost and alone.
I felt loved and I felt found!


HOPE

Hope is having a once in a lifetime friendship.

Hope is dreaming and wishing.

Hope is Jesus Christ!

Never give up hope, for it is what makes life worthwhile!
