When Somebody DiesWhen somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel,
and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to the world,
and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.
People dis-appear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to bed,
wake up grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day-time,
when they're supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets
and make waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.
And when they sing wind- songs, they whisper to us,
don't miss me too much.
The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.
FootprintsOne night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Scenes from his life flashed across the sky
and he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life had flashed before him,
he recalled that at the lowest and saddest times of his life
there was only one set of footprints
Dismayed, he asked, "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way. Why at the troublesome times of my life,
the times that I've needed you most, you would leave me?"
The Lord replied, "My precious child. I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you saw only one set of footprints...That was when I carried you."
The Old Man Born of DreamsYou must not be afraid to travel
where there are no roads.
You must not give in to the darkness
when there is no sign of light.
You must not be afraid to grow wings
when you are tired of the ground.
You must not be afraid to swim
when you are nothing but a stone.
If experience is the child born of risk, then
acceptance is the old man born of dreams.

Go for it! Take a chance. There are times you must trust that silent voice inside you. The experts don't always have the right answers. According to the laws of aerodynamics the bumble bee cannot fly. I guess no one bothered to tell the bee.
