  1. Life Without Love
     
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    Life can be busy,
    And somewhat uneasy,
    But there are things that can make it great.

    Having love in your life,
    Just a brother even a wife,
    Can make all the difference to fate.

    Love can lend you a hand,
    When you need to withstand,
    Some of the harder things in life.

    But love can also soften,
    Every so often,
    When you're dealing with life's bigger strife.

    We know love can sometimes be,
    Hard to obtain thee,
    But not all love needs romance to be any.

    The love of a father,
    A mother, a daughter,
    Is a love that would satisfy many.

    So allow love in your lifetime,
    And give it more than a dime,
    For love is worth much more to one man.

    At first, you might not see it,
    But it really much needed,
    As life without love is never the plan.

  3. Love Is Like Magic
    Helen Steiner Rice

    Love is like magic and it always will be.
    For love still remains life's sweet mystery!
    Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange
    And there's nothing in life that love cannot change!

  5. Lord I'm So Lonely
    Greta Zwaan, 2006

    Lord, I'm so lonely, it's so quiet here;
    My family's all gone and no one lives near.
    My life's not at all what I had expected;
    I feel so left out, I feel so rejected.
    When I was younger I had such great dreams;
     I had things all planned, my head full of schemes.
    But I was so busy with so much to do;
    I paid no attention to thoughts about You.

    "When I am older," I always would say,
     "I'll think of religion, I even might pray."
    But now my attention is geared for success;
    I'm up for promotion, I'm under great stress.
    I want this position, I want to achieve;
    When I'm not so busy I'll try to believe.
    But time passed by quickly, the days disappeared,
    And all my achievements were never revered.

    I've never reached the praise that I sought,
     It seems that my efforts were all for naught.
    I gave all I had to a self-centered life,
    And all it returned was hardship and strife.
    Now that I've come to the point where
    I see all of these dreams did nothing for me;
    I fear that my time, which was not well spent,
    Has taken its toll, it's too late to repent.

    Now, all alone, not a friend or a kin
    Remembers my name because of my sin.
    My sin? Self absorbent, neglecting their need,
    No time for involvement because of my greed.
    And Lord, How I hurt! To the depths of my heart.
    I'd give all I own to make a new start!
    I'd make time for friends, spend time in prayer,
    Asking forgiveness, seeking Your care.

    Can You forgive me? A life filled with pride?
    Can You still use me when You've been denied?
    Will You allow me, what's left of my days,
    To belong to Your family, to sing of Your praise?
    And God, in Your mercy, could You send me a friend?
     So this lonely feeling might come to an end?
    I'm not deserving, I depend on Your grace;
     I thank You for caring and hearing my case.
    Thanks for forgiveness, for patience with me,
    For Your tender goodness, for setting me free.

  7. Love Comes Back To You
     
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    From the time we were born
    To the time we die,
    We need love, someone who cares,
    No matter what we try.

    Life brings different types
    Of love and caring
    Each one is unique,
    With many a blessing.

    There is the love of
    Family, and friends,
    The people who stay
    With us to the end.

    And we always have
    The unfailing love
    And that is from
    God above.

    And we also have a need to
    Share love with others
    You can always help
    Your sisters and brothers.

    You can share your love
    By doing a good deed
    And by helping others who
    Have a true need.

    Always remember,
    What you give and do
    Is love's way of
    Coming back to you.

  9. Love and Death
    Poet: Coventry Patmore


    Too soon, too soon comes Death to show
    We love more deeply than we know!
    The rain, that fell upon the height
    Too gently to be called delight,
    Within the dark vale reappears
    As a wild cataract of tears;
    And love in life should strive to see
    Sometimes what love in death would be!

  11. Life Is Good
    Poet: Bayard Taylor


    Life is good and life is fair,
    Love awaits thee everywhere:
    Love! is Love's immortal prayer.

    Live for love, and thou shalt be,
    Loving others, true to me:
    Love, I follow, follow thee!

  13. If Love Were Life
    Poet: Selina Tarpley Williams


    If love were life and hearts more tender were;
    No growing old or dying would there be;
    No eyes from too much weeping fail to see;
    No more the brow be the interpreter
    Of care beneath, nor soul a prisoner
    Within a cell, but like a breath that's free,
    Would spread itself through all eternity;
    If love were life and hearts more tender were.

    It is not hard to understand God's plan.
    Nor be submissive when submission's sweet;
    A flower simply lives to bloom, and man
    Should simply live to love, or else defeat
    The Master's will, which He has made so clear,
    That love enough would make us angels here.

  15. Sunshine In My Heart
    Poet: Mary E. Blake

    You ask to conquer in the strife:
    Take, then, your chosen part.
    I'd rather fold within my life
    The sunshine of the heart.

    I'd rather know how thus to win
    A balm from every pain;
    Thus, even from the shade of sin,
    Some purer strength to gain;

    To live in hope, to trust in right,
    To smile when shadows start,
    To walk through darkness as through light,
    With sunshine in the heart.

  17. Two Pictures
     
    Poet: Unknown

    Somebody's heart is gay,
    And somebody's heart is sad;
    For lights shine out across the way,
    And a door with crape is clad.
    Sadness and gladness alike
    Are dwelling side by side.
    Perhaps the death of an early one,
    And the crowning of a bride.

    Bright eyes are filled with mirth,
    Pale faces bend in prayer,
    And hearts beside the household hearth
    Are crushed by stout despair;
    Ah, sorrow and hope and joy
    Are parted by thinnest walls;
    But on the hearts of the thoughtless ones
    No shadow of sorrow falls!

    No thoughts of the funeral train
    Come to the festive throng;
    No hopes that the past will come again
    To the anguished hearts belong;
    The future's a sunny sea
    To the lovers of joy and mirth;
    But the past alone to those who weep
    For the sundered ties of earth.

    Somebody's heart is gay,
    And somebody's heart is sad;
    For the lights are bright across the way,
    And a door with crape is clad.
    Sadness and gladness alike
    Confront us on every side;
    A wealth of smiles and a flood of tears,
    With hope and sorrow allied!
