This Year

Many splendored visions dancing through my head. Wishes caught up in the stars and moon struck sky. Roads to travel near and far where I am led. Past regrets are vanquished-I'll no longer cry. Dive into life's canyons and I won't be shy. Give this heart another chance to grow and love. Paint my words on canvas for the world to see. Seek my wisest answers from the heavens above. Bathe in scented waters flowing wild and free. Find forgiveness in my soul and let it be. Rock the children in my arms both young and old. Find my voice and sing so loud the birds will cheer. Give somebody warmth and shelter from the cold. Live my life with passion and I'll show no fear. Let my hopes and dreams just sparkle bright this year! for contest "This Year" sponsored by Francine Roberts

Congs well done May Fav Lines, "Give this heart another chance to grow and love. Paint my words on canvas for the world to see. Seek my wisest answers from the heavens above. Bathe in scented waters flowing wild and free. Find forgiveness in my soul and let it be."
