Problems and predicaments come
to us all. There's no sign saying,
"you must be this tall..." to ride
on the emotional roller coasters
that take so many of us for a
spin. The bad news is that there
are times when we're passengers...
whether we like it or not. The
good news is that we can always
choose to get off at the next stop.
Sometimes it's important to
work for that pot of gold.
But other times it's essential
to take time off and to make
sure that your most important
decision in the day simply
consists of choosing which
color to slide down on the
Each day brings with it
the miracle of a new beginning.
Many of the moments ahead
will be marvelously disguised
as ordinary days, but each one
of us has the chance to make something extraordinary out
you're the artist here
you're the one who can
brush away the clouds
and make the sun shine.
Paint your own picture,
choose your own colors
and forget all that
business about having to
stay between the lines
Just like everyone else, I have times when I know that
I can't do it all by myself. There are times when I
need encouragement and some extra strength, a bit
of wisdom, a little humor, and a lot of knowing that
someone is on my side. It may be a situation that needs
some gentle understanding; it might be a problem that
needs to be talked out. There are so many aspects of
my life that benefit tremendously by a friend - just
'listening in' and then sharing insights that could only
come from someone on the inside. There are times
when the only thing that sees me through... is the
friend I have in you.
I do have you for a friend. And that is so wonderful.
I want you to be my friend. That is forever. And yes,
I gladly and graciously admit that... I need you to be
I tell you that truthfully, honestly, and openly. I want
you to receive it as the compliment it's meant to be. It
says in a roundabout way that you are the one person
I know I can turn to. And whether I'm dealing with a
crisis or just cruising along, it makes all the difference
in the world to know that a smile is in your eyes when
you see me... and that there is someone I can share
Why am I telling you all this? It's because I
want to say that everything I have with you...
you have with me.
You can call on me, turn to me, and count on
me to be there for you wherever, whenever.
Because you so generously share the laughter,
I will lovingly dry any tears. Because you so
kindly believe in me, I will never stop believing
in you. I will cheer you on and do whatever I
can to help you reach out for your hopes and
dreams. But I'll also be there to protect you, to
ease any burdens, and to remind you that there
are two of us to overpower any worries and
chase away any fears.
I am your friend. You can rely on me, you can
depend on me, and yes, I would be honored if
you would need me, too. When two people are
as close as we are, the giving and the taking
blend together into one. There's no keeping
score. There's just giving more.
That's just what good friends do.
When I was five, my best friend was the person
I played with until near-sunset. Only one of our
mother's voices telling us to come inside meant
that playtime was over for the day.
At seven, I just knew that my best friend was
the person who sat next to me in school - the
one I gave the first piece of cake to at my
As a teenager, 'best friend' mean something
different. The person who listened to me and
still liked me afterward fit the definition best.
I met you when I was grown up, and our
friendship has taught me that being best
friends means all this... and so much more.
True enough, we play together... at this game
called life. If I had a birthday party, you'd
definitely get the first piece of cake. You are
undoubtedly the person who listens to me and
still likes me when I'm done pouring out all the
stuff that makes for trials and triumphs in life.
Through the years, though, our friendship has
transcended the issue of birthday cakes, and some
of our heart-to-heart conversations have subsided
into silence. It's often not about words; we can
sit in complete silence and get up knowing that
we've had the best conversation ever.
That kind of friendship doesn't come overnight,
and I just want to thank you for being my best
friend at a time when life makes it so necessary
to have one.
You know what? I have this feeling that even if
life didn't make it necessary, we'd still be best
friends. We really don't need any reason at all.
... creating a sunny day together,
even if it is pouring rain outside.
... making time for each other no
matter how busy life gets.
... standing up for one another
when challenges and confrontations
... dropping everything when the
other person is in need.
... loving each other unconditionally.
... dreaming, planning, and believing
... laughing until you can hardly
breathe - and not caring who
... sharing cherished memories and
priceless moments that will last for
Sometimes we do not feel like we want to feel
Sometimes we do not achieve what we want
Sometimes things that happen do not make sense
Sometimes life leads us in directions that are
beyond our control
It is at these times, most of all
that we need someone
who will quietly understand us
and be there to support us
I want you to know, my friend
that I am here for you
in every way
and remember that though
circumstances in our lives change
our friendship will always remain constant
and remember that though
things may be difficult now
tomorrow is a new day
Inside my heart
there is this little place
it keeps me warm
it keeps me sane
it is my sunshine on
This is the place where
I've stored away
each memory we have shared
and all the wonderful thoughts
I think of you
So no matter where you are
or how far away I go
I will keep you close to me
and my heart will be filled
with happiness always
And I want you to know how glad I am that
you came along in mine. Friends like you are
so valuable and so rare. You provide me with
things that can't compary with any other
happiness in my life. I am so thankful for all
the wonderful things about you. You understand
my difficulties and always give me the benefit
of the doubt. There are so many times when
you're the only one who knows what I'm going
through. You're what communication and trust
are all about.
If you sense that I'm hurting, you do whatever
you can to help me. And you don't hold things
against me. You help me prop up my courage if
it starts to fade, and you have such a gentle
way of providing reassurance.
You walk beside me when I could use a
little guidance and direction in my life.
And, more than anyone else, you support
me in my attempts to do what is right.
You can multiply my smiles and you constantly
add to my favorite memories. You make me
feel like I really am somebody who matters.
Then you quietly prove to me how beautiful
that feeling is. You really are amazing.
And I wish I had a way to thank you for all this.
I feel like it's important to let you know
that, in you, I have come across a wonderful,
one-in-a-lifetime friend. The gift of that
friendship is the nicest thing anyone could
ever give... and I will cherish it all the days
of my life and all the years that I live
You're an original,
don't let your uniqueness make you shy.
Don't be someone other than
the wonder you are.
Every star is important to the sky.
Happiness. Deep down within.
Serenity. With each sunrise.
Succes. In each facet of your life.
Close and caring friends.
Love. That never ends.
Special memories. Of all the yesterdays.
A bright today. With much to be thankful for.
A path. That leads to beautiful tomorrows.
Dreams. That do their best to come true.
And appreciation. Of all the wonderful
things about you.
Nothings wastes more
energy than worrying.
The longer one carries
a problem, the heavier it gets.
Don't take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity,
not a life of regrets.
When I'm with you, eternity is a step away
my love continues to grow,
with each passing day.
This treasure of love I cherish within my soul
how much I love you, you'll never really know.
You bring a joy in my heart I've never felt before,
with each touch of your heart I love you more and more.
Whenever we say goodbye
whenever we part,
know I hold you darling deep inside my heart.
So these seven words I pray you hold true
"Forever and always I will love you".
Je denkt misschien
dat je wat moet zeggen
je denkt misschien
dat je me moet opvrolijken
je wilt me misschien weer
je denkt misschien dat je me moet
Wat ik vraag is dit:
wil je nog eens
en nog eens
luisteren naar mijn verhaal
naar wat ik vel en denk.
Je hoeft alleen maar stil te zijn,
mij aan te kijken
mij tijd te geven.
Je hoeft mijn verdriet
zelfs niet te begrijpen
maar als het kan
slechts te aanvaarden
zoals het voor mij voelt.
Je luisterend aanwezig zijn
zal mijn dag anders maken.
A bell is not a bell
until someone rings it
a song is not a song
until someone sings it
love wasn't put in the heart to stay,
for love isn't love
'til you give it away
Love that is true
never grows old
Love is like
the sun coming out
of the clouds
and warming your soul
Love is like magic
and it always will be
for love remains
life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways
that are wondrous and strange
and there's nothing in life
that love cannot change.
Love can transform
the most commonplace
into beauty and splendor
and sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
understanding and kind,
for it sees with its heart
and not with its mind.
Love is the answer
that everyone seeks
Love is the language
that every heart speaks
Love can't be bought,
it is priceless and free,
love, like pure magic,
is life's sweet mystery!
Love is not blind,
it sees more and not less,
but because it sees more
it is willing to see less
Love is like a mountain,
hard to climb,
but once you get to the top
the view is beautiful
You know you are in love
when you see the world in his eyes,
and his eyes everywhere in the world
Wat ik hier heb neergeschreven
getuiktniet van groot talent
maar weet gewoon dat jij voor mij
de allerliefste bent
Huil niet omdat iets eindigt,
maar wees blij omdat het je gelukkig maakte
Stop nooit met lachen,
zelfs al ben je triest,
want je weet nooit wie
verliefd kan worden op die lach
De ergste manier om te voelen dat
je iemand mist is naast hem te zitten
en te wetendat hij misschien nooit
de jouwe zal zijn
Mensen die van elkaar houden,
zeggen elkaar duizend dingen
zonder te praten
