Love At First Sight

Down by the street, I was walking by.
I see all the people and feel really shy.
I stop and glance and what do I see?
It's a beautiful girl and she's looking at me.
I smile at her and walk on by.
 I start to wonder, if she'll say Hi.
I stand and gaze, at the beauty I see.
I feel the joy, when she comes to me.
I feel my heart, it's pounding really fast.
I start to think, it's my chance at last.
I start to shake, what should I say?
This is my moment, I want her to stay.
"I'm taking a walk, to enjoy the view."
"I'm looking for a friend, how about you?"
She stops to think, for a moment or two.
She asks herself, "what am I going to do?"
I gaze at her, as she starts to talk.
She takes my hand and we go for a walk.
I hold her close and everything is fine.
She gives me a hug and I know she's mine.

Be My Valentine

Each time I think about you,
somehow I know that your love is mine.
A love that brings us together,
and a love that will last forever in time.
Each year at this time, I say this love  
will never leave us apart.
I know this love of ours
will always be special in our heart.
Each time I think about you,
somehow I know that your love is mine.
A love that will always grow,
and a love that will always shine.
Each year at this time.
I say this love will never die.
And now I say to you,
you'll always be my Valentine.

Danny's Only Wish

           Y
Buddy peeked through the doorway inside a hospital.
He noticed his friend, Danny weeping beside his bed.
Buddy sat next to him and tried to cheer him up.
"I am afraid," Danny cried. "I have surgery and I might die." 
Buddy grabbed his friend's hand and assured him he would live.
Buddy handed Danny a get well greeting card.
Danny noticed that the whole class signed the card.
Danny reached for a note on top of his dresser.
He handed the note to Buddy.
"Please show this," Danny pleaded, "to the whole class."
Danny wrote a little request, "please pray for me?"
Buddy promised his friend that the whole class will pray for him.
One week later, the school bell rang.
 All the kids rushed to their classrooms.
Room 112 was very quiet.
Buddy and the rest of the class sat and waited for the right moment.
The teacher stood nearby and stared at the clock. 
Moments later, the classroom door opened.
Danny walked slowly to his desk.
The whole class stood up and clapped their hands.
A banner hung overhead with the message,
"WELCOME BACK, DANNY!"
Danny stood in front of the class,
and tried to hold back the tears.
Danny scanned the whole room and proudly,
thanked the class for all the prayers.
