Every night I count my blessings

and I‘m thankful for each one

’cause I know I‘ve not been promised

I‘ll see the rising sun


Every moment is so precious

every day is special too

but the memories that I treasure most

have all been made with you


You are the love I‘ve longed for

You are my dream come true

and I know each day

that I am Blessed

when I wake up next to you

The First Sunrise Of January
Always Leaves Me Wondering
What Lies Ahead
Just Out Of Sight
Over The Horizon
In My Tomorrows

And Then It Leads My
Mind Back Over The
Last Year And
Way Back When Too

Moments And Memories
And What If’s And
Might Have Beens 

Things That Never Were
But Could Have Been
And The Happiness
That Was And
The Blessings
That I Have

And Bittersweet
Memories Escape
Their Cell

Deep In My Heart
On The First
Sunrise Of January
Before Being
Escorted Away

Sometimes The Heart
And Soul
Need To Reflect,
Remember And Wonder,
So They Will Be
More Grateful,
And Happy During
The Coming Year

The First Sunrise Of January
Is The Demarcation,
The Ending And Beginning,
One Year Passing Away Into History
As The New Year Is Born

The First Sunrise Of January
Is The “First Time”
You Get To Make An X
On The New Year’s Calendar

Why Does A Heart
That Loves
So Deeply,
Have To Suffer,
Have To Get Broken,
Once Again

Over And Over
Time After Time
Falling For Lovers
That Will Never
Stay Mine

It Can’t Keep Going
On This Way, When Can I Have One
That Won’t Walk Away

I Give My Heart
But When Will I I Learn,
That I Need To Have One,
In Return,
From One That Will
Love Me Forever

Too Many Memories
Still Stay In My Mind
Long Lost Lovers
From  A Far Away Time

Haunting My Dreams
And Whispering Lies
Bringing Back Heartaches
And Tears To My Eyes

How Long Must I Wait
For Time To Heal
The Scars And The Hurts
I’m Forced To Feel

No One Is Flawless
Least Of All Me,
But True Love
Accepts Us
And Let’s Us Be,
In Spite Of It All

And So I Hope,
My Lips Will Soon Kiss
My Forever Lover,
Once Time Has Mended
My Humpty Dumpty Heart
