Once In a While

Once in a while,
you meet somebody new
and it seems that you know
from the start
You've found someone special
to trust and confide in
with whom you can talk
heart to heart . . .

You'll have the same values,
you'll have the same interests,
have similar goals to pursue . . .

And from that time on,
There'll be someone who cares,
there'll be someone
to help see you through.
You'll share with each other
a warmth and a closeness,
a feeling that never will end . . .

Once in a while,
you meet somebody new
who becomes such a wonderful friend.

I know in my heart that I'll never forget
the way I could tell just as soon as we met
what a wonderful friend
you would be!


Stand For What You Believe In

Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
and the pressure that tears at your resistance,
...means courage

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
...means strength

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
...means determination

Doing more than is expected,
To make another's life a little more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
...means compassion

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability,
...means loyalty

Giving more than you have,
And expecting nothing
But nothing in return,
...means selflessness

Holding your head high,
And being the best you know you can be
When life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with the confidence
That time will bring you better tomorrow's,
And never giving up,
...means confidence.


Dreaming Your Dreams

Don't ever be reluctant to show your feelings
 when you're happy, give in to it.
When you're not, live with it.

Don't ever be afraid to try
to make things better,
you might be surprised at the results.

Don't ever take the weight
of the world on your shoulders.
Don't ever feel threatened by the future,
take life one day at a time.

Don't ever feel guilty
about the past. What's done is done.
Learn from any mistakes
you might have made.

Don't ever feel that you are alone,
There is always somebody there
for you to reach out to.

Don't ever forget that you can achieve
so many of the things you can imagine. ...
It's not as hard as it seems.

Don't ever stop loving
Don't ever stop believing,

Don't ever stop dreaming your dreams
