If I were a Human

If I were a human, I could do anything.
I could read, and write, and dance and sing!
I'd have no predators, no enemies, that's good.
I'd have only friends in my neighborhood.
I might be smart, I might be cool.
I can chill with other kids in the pool.
I could do things a bird's never dreamed up.
I could win a big medal, prize, or cup
For being the best in a sport or a game.
I could be on my way to fortune and fame!
But I wouldn't be conceited like some humans are.
I'd be kind, modest, and generous, by far.
Oh the life of a human. It sure would be fun!
But I couldn't stand it if I had just one
More of those revolting, over-sweet candy bars.
I'd never get used to driving in a car.
Plus if I'm a human, I gotta go to school.
I hear that place just bombards you with rules.
Every human needs to know something of money.
This money business doesn't sound funny.
I'd pretty much miss my habits and ways,
When I was cheerful, happy and gay.
So when you think about it, I bet you will see
That I'm better off if I was just me.
If I remember my wish, have you heard the news yet?
I've got a human to be my pet.

If I were a Bird

If I were a bird, I'd be happy and free.
Flying, soaring, diving, whee!
I'd never have to walk again.
Whenever I get tired, then,
I'd fly to the treetops, way up high,
And sit as close as I can to the sky.
In the animal world, there's no currency,
So I can eat and get what I want for free!
I'd play with squirrels and chipmunks, I could.
I'd play hide and seek with a deer, I would.
I'd have no limit to where I can fly.
I'd go to Hawaii, I wouldn't be shy.
I'd love to be a bird, it would be great!
But it wouldn't be so cool if I ate
Worms and bugs every day, I'd get sick.
I wouldn't have pizza, or ice-cream to lick.
I'd have to sleep standing. I'd miss my bed,
And my pillow, were I could rest my poor head.
My home would be a nest. It's really quite plain
That this kind of house can't keep out the rain.
Besides, I'd miss my family and friends.
If only I could be with them again.
So when you come to the point, I think it would be
In my best interest if I was just me.
And when I get that longing, haven't you heard?
I'll soon be getting my very own pet bird.

I love my Dad

It's not every man who gives his family
such time, attention, and care.
I'm so fortunate that I have a dad
who I know will always be there.

With countless awesome skills and
wonderful life-lessons to teach,
You never fail to inspire, to show me
just how far one can reach.

You're the best dad
Simply no question about it.

I love and appreciate you
every single day.
I hope you never doubt it.

Hi now.

Time just seems to pass me by now
Life is not as easy as pie now
Every day my head's in the sky now
Wish I had wings so I could fly now

I'm feeling something I can't deny now
I feel happy, like I can jump high now
Then I'm sad, like I need a cry now
I'm confused and that's no lie, now...

This poem's random. Are you surprised now?
I don't know, so I'm asking you why now
Doesn't make sense, so don't even try now

I have to go, so I guess I'll say 'bye now...

For Mothers

You clothe us, you feed us,
When we were young you'd read to us.

You cook for us, you clean for us,
You passed along your genes to us.

You share with us, you care for us,
You even cut our hair for us.

You loved us, you birthed us,
You're a zillion dollars worth to us.

Your kids are what they call us.
You, Mom, are worth it all to us.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Birthday DAD! ^_~

Dear Ben,
Looks like it's that time again.
It's that time of year,
The day we all cheer,
And show Poppa Bear
How much we care.

Thanks for your love and dedication.
You are my hero, my inspiration.
A wonderful teacher, patient, fun,
With a smile as warm as the sun!

Happy birthday wishes,
Many hugs and kisses!
I'm sure you know
I love you so!

*Yom Huledet Samayach!
(*That's "Happy Birthday" in Hebrew)
Love, Bettina. ^_^

Love: What Dreams are Made of

♪♫ First Verse ♫♪
I often wonder what life is really about.
I'm in a box, but how do I think out?
Am I really the person I want to be?
I gotta find someone who'll love me for me.

But you're the reason why I sing this song...
I have a feeling it's been you all along...
♪♫ First Chorus ♫♪
I think love... is the thing that dreams are made of.
I don't mind it,
I like the feeling,
It's been inside me from the start.
Because the thing that dreams are made of.
Now I've found it,
I'll never lose it.
I'll always keep love in my heart.

♪♫ Second Verse ♫♪
You're always dreaming of something better than this
Is there a plan, or is life a hit-and-miss?
Then someone special wandered into your life
And something about them made you feel so right.

She makes you feel exactly like a flower...
'Cuz you're growing every minute, every hour...
♪♫ Second Chorus ♫♪
You say love... is the thing that dreams are made of.
Do you mind it?
What is your feeling,
Every time that we're apart?
Because the thing that dreams are made of.
When you find it,
Try not to lose it.
You've got to keep love in your heart.

♪♫ Bridge ♫♪
I, re-mem-ber,
When you sent me letters as a sign of your love...
You, would, al-ways,
Say that talking to me was like sunshine from above...
We'd, stay, up, and,
Talk about the books we'd someday write... and
Did, you, hap-pen,
To dream of me last night?
'Cuz I dream of you...
Yeah, I dream of you...
♪♫ Third Verse ♫♪
Now we're together and life is as it should be
I've got you and, naturally, you've got me.
I'm glad that we met all those years ago,
'Cuz if we didn't, I would've never known.

That falling in love makes you feel so grand...
And every day, all I want to do is hold, your, hand...♪♫ Third Chorus ♫♪
We know love... is the thing that dreams are made of.
We don't mind it,
We like the feeling,
It's been inside us from the start.
Because the thing that dreams are made of.
We have found it,
No doubt about it,
And we'll always keep love...
Yeah, we'll always keep love...
We'll always remember to keep love in our hearts.

For Graham & Schaara's Wedding Day

You've gone and tied the knot!
You're married, you're wed!
Precious rings were given
and loving vows were said.

I wish I could have been there
to see it for myself.
I hope you'll send me pictures, though.
Good luck, and lots of health!

I know that for many years
you'll love each other madly.
Congratulations, my 2 friends,
Graham and Schaara Bradley.
