the holidays can be a lonely time, too. Even if you are surrounded by tons of people. I found this poem online and wanted to share it with all of you. Then, I went outside to take out the trash (yes, I do that :-) and saw the beautiful, amazing sunset from our backyard. For those of you who don't know...we have moved to the country. That's another story. Anyhow, I hope you find comfort in the words of Mr. Maguire and these beautiful pictures...


Whenever You Feel Lonely
by Frank Maguire

Whenever you feel lonely
Or whenever you feel blue
And everything just seems
To get you down
Just look around this world of ours
And if you listen too
A smile will soon replace
Your woeful frown

You will see a sky so beautiful
It will take your breath away
When the moon appears
Or the sun is shining proud
As the stars they twinkle endlessly
No matter come what may
And a silver lining
Blankets every cloud

A world of green and wonderment
Will pass before your eyes
Like the sweeping meadows
And the tallest trees
You will also see the flowers
And they will make you realise
Such beauty, as they sway
Among the breeze

When you listen, you will hear the birds
As they sing the sweetest songs
And the children play
With total innocence
You will also hear the word of love
That's been spoken for so long
On a wind that blows
With truth, and no pretence

As you listen to the sea of blue
When it finds its way to shore
As you watch the raindrops
Falling from the sky
If you learn to well appreciate
All these wonders more and more
Then your loneliness
Will surely pass on by.
