Sometimes our dreams seem curtailed

Review your faith, it never fails

Lasso your elusive stars

Fulfilled dreams are not too far

Live the life you imagined

Create it as you fashioned

Revel in each day’s re-birth

Give thanks you were put on earth

Recall the dreams of long ago

Create them in daily time and know

Thou life seems short changed

Remember happiness is within range

Start living your dreams, why wait!

Open the welcome gate

“Why reach for the moon

When you have the stars?

*Inspired last line in the film, "Now Voyager" (1942) when Bette Davis says to Jerry, "Why reach for the moon, when we have the stars."

Meaning: If you reach for the moon, or reach for the stars, you are going to achieve something great, or do something challenging.

SING A SONG OF JOY (c) By Polly Guerin

The Singing Butler by Jack Vettriano

Start off with a refrain
There’s wisdom to gain

Take life easy and grow
Sing a song pianissimo

Build up your courage and go
Keep upbeat time in fortissimo

When joy arrives you’ll know
Shout loud sing in crescendo

There’s more joy in life
So sing a new song

As joy bubbles up in laughter
It’s diminuendo you’re after

Sing, sing for the joy of living
Musical scales are so forgiving

They lift your spirits beyond the pale
Staccato notes never fail

Reveling in a sense of well being
Let me hear you singing.

GIVE ALL to LOVE (c) By Polly Guerin

Love by Pop Artist Robert Indiana
Valentine’s Day 2/14/2011

Do not awake to find
That Love is gone

Other loves await us
You can right a wrong

Plant love’s forgiveness
Heartbreak abates

Never give up on love
It’s never too late

Mysterious and beautiful
Kiss a stranger’s lips

Take the hand of wanting
A world full of riffs

A lonely child awaits us
Famished and forlorn

A mother yearns to kiss
Cold lips just born

So many brave men gone
Deaf to a lover’s song

I am old with wondering
Why the reason Why

The world is full of weeping
Must love be denied?

Kiss the child take the hand
Send love across the land

Say ‘Yes’ to your hopes and dreams
Life is never what it seems

Open your heart to happiness
Spread the Gift

Eternal Love remains.
