It seems like only yesterday when you were by my side

Our lives so entwined – love keeping us sublime

I keep thinking that I will walk into a place nearby

And you will be there, like we were suspended in time


I know that won’t happen – not here – not now

It’s just a hint and a reminder of what will be

But on another plane and place in time

We will unite and our journey will set us free


Our souls will embrace before we know it

We are meant to be together – that is a certainty

It truly is amazing that the fates know us

That’s why we got along so perfectly


Oh, there were times when we drove each other crazy

But more times we were locked in loves embrace

It was meant to be from the moment our eyes met

I close my eyes and still see that look upon your face


I remember that day when all events collided

Our paths crossed when fate determined it was time

And we knew we had once again found our soul mates

Just as in the past, our future lives will surely intertwine


Fate brought us together

A union that would never part

We are inextricably united

We knew it from the very start

For My Children


For My Children

Each one born under a different sign

Each special and unique

Our family grew with each new face

As we watched our circle of love increase


The very first day our fingers touched and I felt each strong response

I knew that time would never change the thoughts my heart ensconced

I always knew we were intertwined and had a special start

That distance and space could never really keep us all apart


My children, my kids, my dearest friends – you are all of these to me

You’ve always been a source of joy and pride – that everyone can see

And every day you show your love, you strengthen my life’s goal

You are bright lights that blaze and keep me true to my soul


Thank you for being my kids

From one very lucky Mum
