    What You Mean To Me

    What if the sun didn't rise, the moon didn't shine, the lightning bugs didn't glow, and the rivers didn't flow? That'd be what my life would be like if we weren't together you know. What if the butterflies lost their wings, the leaves didn't grow in spring, rhythm fell...

    Amazed Every Day By Life

    Each and every day I still wonder. I wonder if everyone else does? Does life shoot through you, mesmerize you? Does this gift of life leave you with a sense of awe? I think it because I am somewhat immature. Never fully developed. Taken back by it all. It is with this mind that...

    I appreciate everything

    that life has to give. From the little moments to big moments, I'll cherish them all. Something as simple as a smile or knowing the people I love are okay can make my entire day. I don't care if my life isn't as interesting or exciting as others. My life is something I'm living...
