Sunrise On The Desert.Golden Sands, A Red- Orange Sky.A Shadow Cast In Darkness-On The Winds Subtle Cry.Crossing A Painted Picture,A Seemingly Endless Cage.Facing Another Day Alone,The Cowboy Turns The Page.He Rides Towards The Horizon,Where Each Night The Sunsets Hide.Black Stetson Hat, Callused Hands,On The White Horse He Calls Pride.A Face Rough And Unshaven,Kabar Knife, Boots And Levi’s.Never A Smile, Never A Frown,Just Wild, Blue Staring Eyes,And The Desert Winds Blow Harsh,Dust Kicking Up In His Sight.But Steady On His March,The Man Presses On Through The Plight.Perseverance Leads The Way,On The Lonely, Sometimes Dreadful Quest.Indeed A Good Man Some Would Say,But I’d Say He’s The Best.And The Dream Seems Within Reach Now,The Tiresome Journey Nearing Its End.He Can See It In The Distance,As The Storm Seems To Suspend.A Land Where Emotions Flourish-In Grandiose Euphoria.A Land Where Pain Eases And Hearts Nourish,A Land He Calls “Utopia”.Yes Determination, Will, And Guts,His Three Best Friends Behooved-Have Led Him To The Crossroads-Where Nothing Remains To Be Proved.The Desert Lies Behind Him,Prosperity Just Ahead On The Plain.He Slows Up Just A Moment,Gently Pulling Back The Reign.Tipping His Hat Without Looking Back-To Those He Touched On This Parade.He Holds His Head High, Lets Out A Sigh,Watching A Brilliant Sunset Fade.And Night Comes On The Wings Of Angels,Calling A Billion Stars To His Side.Carrying Him Away To His “Utopia”,The Cowboy’s Final Ride.

Before I Could Love Somebody I Have To Love Myself-I Have To Love Me More Than I Love Somebody ElseI Can’t Continue Putting Him First-I Have To Gain Some Self Worth.I Can’t Make Him Happy When I’m Sad-When I’m Gone He Will Realize What He Had.I Can’t Take This Pain No More-I Know To Him I Just Got To Close The Door.I Can’t Keep Crying Over Him When I Know He Doesn’t Love Me-I Have To Wake Up I Have To Finally See.I Wasn’t Meant For Him-He Wasn’t Meant For Me-Why Am I Finding It So Hard To Just Set Him Free.So Many Years I Tried And Tried-So Many Times I Know In My Heart That He Lied.All Time I’ve Wasted I Can’t Get Back-I Need Someone To Give Me The True Love That I Lack.If You Loved Me He Would Have Put Me Above All-He Wouldn’t Expect Me To Be There At His Every Beck And Call.He Would Left Me Up Instead Of Putting Me Down-He Would Have Appreciated The True Loved He Found.Instead He Caused Me So Much Hurt And Pain-Drowning My Tears In The Falling Rain.God, Please Give Me The Strength To Just Let Him Go-Why Do I Still Play The Fool, When I Know.Love May Hurt Sometime But It Doesn’t Hurt This Bad-Why Am I Trying To Make Him Happy When I’m Truly Sad?I Have To Put Myself First I Have To Love Me-Why The Hell He Won’t Just Let Me Be.Love Is So Easy To Fall In, And So Hard To Fall Out-I Know In My Heart I Could Do Without.I Just Don’t Know How To Make Him Go Away-How Do I Get My Heart From Wanting Him To Stay?I Need Someone To Give Me A Love That Is True-And I Know Now That It Is Not You….

As I Began To Love MyselfAs I began to love myselfI found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signsthat I was living against my own truth.Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebodyAs I try to force my desires on this person,even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it,and even though this person was me.Today I call it “RESPECT”.As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.Today I call it “MATURITY”.As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,I am in the right place at the right time,and everything happens at the exactly right moment.So I could be calm.Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time,and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to doand that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health -food, people, things, situations, and everything the drew me down and away from myself.At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right,and ever since I was wrong less of the time.Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry about the future.Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening.Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb meand it can make me sick.But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally.Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problemswith ourselves or others.Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born.Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me, And I’m Not There To See,If The Sun Should Rise And Find Your Eyes,  All Filled With Tears For Me,I Wish So Much You Wouldn’t Cry, The Way You Did Today,While Thinking Of The Many Things We Didn’t Get To Say.I Know How Much You Love Me, As Much As I Love You,And Each Time That You Think Of Me,   I Know You’ll Miss Me Too.But When Tomorrow Starts Without Me, Please Try To Understand,That An Angel Came And Called My Name And  Took Me By The Hand.And Said My Place Was Ready In Heaven Far Above,And That I’d Have To Leave Behind, All Those  Things I Dearly Love.But As I Turned To Walk Away, A Tear Fell From My Eye,For All My Life, I’d Always Thought, I Didn’t Want To Die.I Had So Much To Live For, So Much Yet To Do,It Seemed Almost Impossible, That I Was Leaving You.I Thought Of All The Yesterdays, The Good Ones And The Bad,I Thought Of All The Love We Shared, And All The Fun We Had.If I Could Relive Yesterday, Just Even For A While,I’d Say Goodbye And Kiss You, And Maybe  See You Smile.But Then I Fully Realized, That Could Never Be,For Emptiness And Memories, Would Take  The Place Of Me.And When I Thought Of Worldly Things, I Might  Miss Come Tomorrow,I Thought Of You, And When I Did, My Heart Was  Filled With Sorrow.But When I Walked Through Heaven’s Gates,  I Felt So Much At Home.When God Looked Down And Smiled At Me,  From His Great Golden Throne.He Said, “This Is Eternity, And All I’ve  Promised You.Today Your Life On Earth Is Past, And  Here It Starts Anew”.“I Promise No Tomorrow, But Today Will Always Last,And Since Each Day’s The Same Day, There’s  No Longing For The Past”.“But You Have Been So Faithful, So Trusting And So True,Though There Were Times You Did Some Things,  You Know You Shouldn’t Do”.“But You Have Been Forgiven, And Now At  Last You’re Free,So Won’t You Take My Hand Now And Share  My Life With Me”.So When Tomorrow Starts Without Me, Don’t  Think We’re Far Apart,For Every Time You Think Of Me, I’m Right Here  In Your Heart
