Don't chase the moon
It's too far away,
and there's probably
nothing up there anyway.

Just keep your feet
on the ground
wish on a star,
the only thing to be
is who you are.

So love one another
show that you care,
respect and honor
take time to share.

They'll be bad times
and good times
crying and laughter,
what I'm trying to say is
live happily ever after.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Beautiful poema and H.N>Y to you too!

 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns. But a place of torment because the light of God is gone. To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~
