My Wishes For You

I wish you many things, my dove- bright and brave things, like love
or cool things, like ice beneath warm fingers, so nice
or gifts upon gifts, in troves where do they come from? no one knows
but this Christmas eve, I hope you receive
the bright and brave truth, of many-a-youth:
I love you, I do.

School's Out For Christmas (a song)

School's out for Christmas and I couldn't be happier,
hello, my dear you're looking quite dapper
in all of this chaos I'm still hanging on to your hugs
and with you this Christmas I am feeling your love.

I know we'll be good
for Santa's coming 'round the bend
We know we'll be good
Christmas doesn't have to end
if you lift up your heart to the sky and you sing,
the angels will too and the church bells will ring
for all of the things you have in your heart
this Christmas,
will start.

We're home for Christmas and I couldn't be gladder,
although this year's been one of the madder
through all of this joy we'll be in it together,
just pull me in close with the sleeves of your sweater.

I know we'll be great
if we're just hand in hand
We know we are great
through it all we will stand
if you lift up your heart to the sky and you sing,
the angels will too and the church bells will ring
and all of the things you have in your heart
this …

There's a Reason Why I'm an Optimist

If you are someone who many people look up to, look upon life in a way that you would want someone else to.
There is no denying we live in a world that can be as cruel as the demons that reside beneath it, but there is nothing worse than letting that negativity engulf you. There is nothing worse than letting it eat away at everything you are. There is nothing worse than letting it consume you, and dragging everyone you love down with you.
I cannot say that I'm not a cynic sometimes, because that would be a lie. I can clarify, however, that I don't enjoy being cynical or pessimistic, because it's not the way anyone should think.
Sure, there are a lot of things we go through in our lives that leave us feeling defeated, hopeless. Unfortunately, there probably always will be.
But there is so much more for us to be thankful for, for us to revel in and share with others.
There are things in this world that are bad, and there are things in this world that are good.
What it all depends …
