Justin, Liam and Gary July 1995

FRIENDSHIP

And a youth said,
Speak to us of Friendship.
And he answered saying,
Your friend is your needs answered.

He is your field which
you sow with love and
reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board
and your fireside.

For you come to him
with your hunger,
and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his
mind you fear not the "nay"
in your own mind,
nor do you withhold the "ay".

And when he is silent your heart
ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship,
all thoughts, all desires,
all expections are born and shared,
with joy that is unclaimed.

Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to feel your
need, but not your emptiness.
And let there be no purpose
in friendship save the deepening
of the spirit.

And let your best be for
your friend.
And in the sweetness of friendship
let there be laughter,
and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

--Kahlil Gibran

Letting Go

To let go doesn't mean to stop caring,
it means I can't do it for someone else.

To let go is not to cut myself off,
it's the realization that
I can't control another.

To let go is not to enable,
but to allow learning from
natural consequences.

To let go is to admit powerlessness,
which means the outcome
is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try to change
or blame another,
I can only change myself.

To let go is not to care for,
but to care about.

To let go is not to fix,
but to be supportive.

To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to
be a human being.

To let go is not to be in the
middle arranging all the outcome,
but to allow others to effect
their own outcomes.

To let go is not to be protective,
it is to permit another to face reality.

To let go is not to deny,
but to accept.

To let go is not to nag,
scold, or argue,
but to search out my own
shortcomings and to correct them.

To let go is not to adjust
everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes,
and to cherish the moment.

To let go is not to criticize
or regulate anyone,
but to try to become whatever
dream I can be.

To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less
and to love more.

Angels in my Heart

When I have no one to turn to
and I’m feeling kind of low
When there’s no one here to talk to
and nowhere I want to go
I search deep down within myself
It is the love inside the heart
that let’s me know my Angels are there
Even though we are miles apart
A smile then appears upon my face
and the sun begins to shine
I hear a voice, so soft and sweet,
saying, “everything will be just fine”
It may seem that I am alone,
but I am never by myself at all
Whenever I need my Angels near
All I have to do is call
An Angels love is always true,
on that you can depend
He will always stand beside you
and will always be your friend
