Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

Holiday time!  Switch off, relax
Don’t answer phone, email or fax
The world won’t end if you’re not there
Let someone else your burden share

Fly far away, escape the grind
Don’t fear of falling far behind
For something else will come along
Returning, sing a different song

A song of new, surprising joy
Which old thought-patterns can not destroy
This break has turned your whole life round
You’re marching to a different sound

You’re free to choose another way
You’ve reassessed just how you play
Each item on your list to do
Now appears completely new

So what has happened?  What can I say?
The summer breeze has cast away
The doubts and troubles you had before
It’s paved the future – so what’s in store?

A life of helping other souls
A time to find your true life goals
No longer blindly following on
The breeze has blown, the light has shone

Uncle Sam

Uncle Sam

Uncle Sam’s a dear old man
He’s always scheming some great plan
He’s fun to know, he’ll always play
He’s wide awake ‘most every day

He welcomes all, both great and small
He’s there for you whenever you call
You know he’s busy but still he cares
He has the time, he gives and shares

I’ve watched this guy for many a year
From miles away, in awe and fear
He has an open heart and mind
He knows how to be cruel and kind

It’s opportunity mankind needs
And Uncle Sam will plant the seeds
He watches where things grow and die
He learns as others fall and fly

He takes it in, he keeps account
Strategising from the mount
You won’t get much past this wise soul
His mind is always on the goal

The goal of freedom, truth and hope
Helping those who cannot cope
He’ll smile and say ‘friend, here I am’
So trust him, dear old Uncle Sam

Think Positive

Think Positive

Positive thoughts all through the day
Will help keep fear and doubt at bay
I’ll start you off, have these on me
There’s not a cost, they’re all for free!

You’re great and powerful, You can win
The game’s worth playing, let us begin
The day is full of joyful times
You’re not a prisoner of others crimes

Your life’s your own, you have a chance
You’re free to sing and free to dance
You won’t lose out, as love’s your goal
Think loving thoughts, give them your all

You don’t need more, you have enough
Yet more is coming, times aren’t so tough
You have a chance to change your view
The world each day becoming new

You’re looking forward with such power
Which now increases by the hour
You’re breaking chains and freeing minds
With such bright action, it nearly blinds

The people passing by can see
They just see you, they can’t see me
So keep my thoughts inside this day
Then grow your own – the positive way

Liberty

Liberty

All is possible in this world
The flag of liberty’s now unfurled
So keep in mind some caution, friend
Think how you’d like this day to end

The things you do will not be missed
Each action will be on the list
Of life’s events, both great and small
The good and bad, each rise and fall

So what does freedom mean to you?
What are you now inspired to do?
Thinking of yourself and greed
Or perhaps what other people need

Your time and care, that doesn’t cost
In many ways the world is lost
A simple smile or word each day
Could make the difference and pave the way

The way for making others lives
That little more peaceful, hope arrives
So make the effort, with liberty
Help others to find a life so free

Friends

Friends

The world is smaller with each new day
Earth’s borders swiftly swept away
Amazing for us all to see
Technology making history

There’s always a way to keep in touch
With friends you can’t see very much
Don’t hesitate to make that call
They’re waiting, so give them your all

A friend will do more than you think
It’s never so simple as ‘just a drink’
For meeting with the ones you trust
Renews your faith and clears the dust

Emerging from your time of fun
There’s now more work, it must be done
But with the knowledge that friends are near
Your thoughts are happy, you have no fear

Move on with strength to each new task
You might need hats, or even a mask
For life is complex, webs are spun
Don’t worry, the truth can’t be undone

The truth – No matter who you are
To find a friend you needn’t look far
In fact there’s one outside your door
Say ‘Hi’, then see, there could be more!
