NO LIMITS A time of hope and peace A time of love and joy A time of dreams and expectations The heart is alive, your soul sings And the possibilities of tomorrow have no limit Sitting Waiting Quietly For you To step in and take it

AT THE END OF IT ALL A heart that always beats A voice that always sings A hand that always welcomes A love that never stops You need to know these things You need to believe these things You need to hope these things For without them we are nothing

AND FOR THE CRYING And if you listen very quietly Sometimes you can hear the tears And if you look very carefully Sometimes you can see the pain And if you let your heart be open Sometimes you can feel the desperation And if you believe that we are sister and brother Sometimes you will hold out your hand

IN THE SHADOWS The thin line between what is and What isn’t The tight-rope you walk Between what’s right and what’s wrong The decisions to be made about which Way to turn

Hidden spirits moving in the shadows So difficult to see So hard to get away from But always there Only you can see them And no one else understands

ON THE EDGE OF HAPPINESS Almost touching Almost holding Almost there Almost

Elusive Fleeting Desirable Beckoning Cos everyone has got it Haven’t they? Only the lonely and the lonesome Are left out in the cold If only Yes, if only I could stop Assuming what everyone else has And be happy with what I have So much So, so much That I am blessed with Sat here On the edge of happiness

DID SHE REALLY? Did she really? She what? Are you sure? Is that what she said? And did she really mean that? So you decided that must mean… I see Can you? There is just the biggest gap between what was said And what you decided it all meant It has made you angry, upset and resentful You feel unsupported, unheard and not important And you can’t function properly This is real – I can see it in you now But you have bridged the gap and drawn the conclusions Another person will take the same statements And leave them where they are For what they are Take a breath Track back and have another look Did she really?

BECAUSE YOU THINK TOO SMALL You don’t know how important you are You don’t know how much impact you have You don’t know how you make them feel Because you think too small Because you don’t trust yourself Because you haven’t realised That you are just as special Just as unique Just as precious As they are Oh yes You are

JUST FOR YOU A card, a flower, a kiss on the cheek A little action A deeper message How do I say it? What should I share? Can you read me? My poverty of expression My inability to convey it My lack of imagination to show you So I guess we will stick with calling it love My love for you A word that needs so much explaining Love that I give Love that I receive Love that makes the world go round Starting somewhere in the middle of the universe Passed from one to another Holding us all together So painful when you lose it Or you are left out When hearts grow cold A note, a present, a touch of the hand A little action A deeper message 18

A FLICK OF THE SWITCH And so there he was Without a noise Or much of a movement As if he had flicked a switch And opened a gateway To change his state But you won’t see him do it And certainly won’t expect it Because he’s a master now From a situation that was running into sand And a meeting that had run out of puff He rose above and remembered that

It was just so good to be alive!
