Every night my prayers I say. And get my dinner every day, And every day that I ´ve been good, I get an orange after food. The child that is not clean and neat, With nlots of toys and things to eat, He is naughty child, I´m sure Or else his dear papa is poor. R. L. STEVENSON

sure , i love it - here's 1 for you. All alone, by myself You're not by my side Can't hear your voice Throughout the day Or lay with you at night. The calls are so very few I go crazy wondering why. If only I could reach for you To know that you're all right. I pray to God Each and every night That he'll keep you safe and sound And one day soon you'll come home to us We need you here right now. No matter where you're at tonight I'm with you in your heart. The kids keep asking for you, I tell them you've gone bye. But how do I stop the nightmares And the crying in the night. My heart aches for you And no matter how hard I try I can't keep the tears from falling Everytime we say goodbye. I love you and I miss you I hope you'll be home soon You're our greatest hero Defending the Red, White and Blue

I like to share this one with everyone.. I just love it to bits :) And Out of My Dreams Came You! by Susan Leilani Deep in the silence, one nightfall When the moon sat still, shone bright, Came the utterance of one single moonbeam At my window... tapping, ever so light; And in the flicker of one swift instant I felt its warming embrace; It encompassed me and then I trembled As before me appeared your sweet face. Then the radiance of that gentle smile, The love shining soft in your eyes, Began to penetrate with the moonlight Straight through me, to deafen my cries. Now, no longer am I ever lonely. With each nightfall there's you and love's true: In the darkness I seek out my moonbeam And out of my dreaming... comes you! And in the flicker of one swift instant I felt its warming embrace; It encompassed me and then I trembled As before me appeared your sweet face. And in the flicker of one swift instant
