A year has no gone by,

Since that first night that we met.

And I cannot tell a lie,

We have so much we have not done yet.

But as new things we do from time to time,

My joy is complete.

And I gladly each rong will climb,

Because I know at the top you I will meet.

You fill my world with so much of the NOW,

And my heart with happiness and love.

People look at me and wonder how,

I got showered with love from above.

There is no doubt it was to be,

This friendship that we share.

And time stands still for you and me,

Because for each other we truly care.

So thank you for being here,

And filling my life with song.

You are my friend and lover, so dear.

With you by my side nothing goes wrong.

(I'm still awaiting my picture of the baby, Anelie!!!)

You fill her mornings and her night,
You are her special little light.
You give her reason to move along,
With you by her side she won't go wrong.

A special little angel you are to Anelie,
From the moment you grew in her belly.
And now that you share her days,
You're added energy to the sun's rays.

Your laughter and your squeal,
Tells us that you are real.
Your smile and your chatter,
Let's Anelie know nothing is the matter.

So blessed little angel that you are,
There is no one by far,
That your mommy can love more than you,
And she'll show it daily in everything she will do.

For Juan Carlos, with all my best wishes

Most nights daddy came to school,

To learn the golden rule.

He knew what he had to do,

So he did it all for you.

You are his joy and his love,

You are his little dove.

The happiness you give to your dad,

Makes him quite a lad.

He grew up over night we all could see,

To be the father that he should be.

And now he walks around with pride,

And a joy in his heart that he cannot hide.

For you fill your daddy's life with everything,

And all the angel can do is sing.

For there is so much love everywhere,

For to him and your mother you are so dear.

Less sleep, more TV, ups toddler weight
BOSTON (UPI) -- Infants and toddlers who sleep less than 12 hours a day are twice as likely to become overweight by age 3 than children who sleep longer, a U.S. study found. The study, published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, found children who sleep less than 12 hours and who view two or more hours of television per day have a 16 percent chance of becoming overweight by age 3. "Mounting research suggests that decreased sleep time may be more hazardous to our health than we imagined," lead author Dr. Elsie Taveras of the Harvard Medical School's Department of Ambulatory Care and Prevention says in a statement. "We are now learning that those hazardous effects are true even for young infants." The study involved 915 mother-infant pairs from Project Viva, a long-term study of the effects of diet and other lifestyle factors on maternal and child health over time. Infant weight and measurements were taken at several in-person visits up to age 3. Mothers reported how many hours their child slept per day on average at 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Parents were also asked to report the average number of hours their children watched television on weekdays and weekends.

When your mom said you were on the way,

I got furious that day.

For she was so young and I had to fear,

She dd not know what was coming near.

But then you arrived and is was plain to see,

She would be all the mother that she could be.

So I joined in and wished her well,

For her happiness I could tell.

You fill her world with so much love,

I know you are blessed from the one above.

Your daddy is also thrilled with having you,

His love is oh so true.

So special wishes for the girl,

Who came into their world.

Special wishes for Neidi's little treasure,

And daddy Ruben's greatest pleasure.

You are your mother's joy,

And your daddy's little girl.

You are their special little "toy"

The best thing in their world.

Your happiness is plain to see,

Whenever someone calls your name.

It is obvious that you can be,

Someone of much fame.

For with love and parents like yours,

The world is in your hand.

And there will be many happy hours,

For that is the Creator's plan.

So smile, chubby little girl,

And show the world that you can be,

Someone special in this world,

Enjoying everything that you see.

For a special friend who needed this poem now.

When you are feeling low,

Wherever you go,

There is something you must do,

And that is to think only on YOU.

The sky is your world,

Remember you are a woman not a girl.

The sea is your friend,

No one can hurt you then.

Keep your head high,

Don't utter sigh.

Don't bend your shoulder in defeat,

Look straight up and let your eyes meet.

Show that you are strong,

And nothing can go wrong.

Show that you are no weak,

And you will find the comfort you seek.

The world is in your hand,

You must always have a plan.

For if you try to falter or wilt,

Your fate they will tilt.

Remember you are POWER,

Remember this si your HOUR.

Don't give in to the oppressor,

Show that you are a survivor.

For once your attitude you change,

New things come within your range.

And no one can mar your happiness,

And you will be ble to give your best.

There is so much to see,

There is so much to be.

There is so much you need,

There is so much indeed.

So go out and find,

That ladder to climb.

Go out and reap,

The great knowledge you seek.

Don't wait for tomorrow,

Don't wait for pain and sorrow.

There is much you can be,

If you just listen to me.

We are on the move,
In this new Belize.
We have much to do,
In this new Belize.

As hard time hits the world,
Like in this new Belize.
There is work for each boy and girl.
In this new Belize.

So from dawn to dusk,
In this new Belize.
Each his part to do must,
In this new Belize.

For many great things can happen,
In this new Belize.
And our work will never end,
In this new Belize.

So let us join in the fight,
For this new Belize.
For prosperity comes with dawn's light

Whenever I am feeling blue,

You always seem to know just what to do.

You tell me things I want to hear,

Or take me places to erase my fear.

And people ask me why I love you,

It's because men like you are so few.

You came into my life just when I needed a friend,

And the bond we share will have no end.

So wonderful it is to sit with you,

And enjoy all the things that we do.

The plans we make and the trips we take,

This love is sure and pure and no heartbreak.

There is so much that I could say,

There is so much to look forward to each day.

I live for the moments we are together,

I live for the happiness that will be forever.

So while the earth spins everyday,

I know there is nothing we have to say.

The time, the moment, the events that happen,

Are once in a life time events that will never end.

The joy of the day and the glow of the night

All have no meaning if there is a fight.

The anticipation of a few hours alone,

Always get marred by the chat line or phone.

There is no time I can truly call ours today,

Except late at night when everyone goes away,

Only then are we alone but you still are like glue,

Stuck to a computer with you darn work to do.

And the happiness I sometimes feel turns gray,

When things happen to take you so far away.

So I sit and I think of the year now gone by,

And wonder if it was a dream or did Cupid tell me a lie.

Why do you seem so far away?

Why can't I just tell you what I have to say?

The few minutes we share are not enough for me,

Why can't I have the love that could set me free?

I may be wishing for something impossible it seem.

I may be living in a fantasy and a dream.

But I know we can have a whole lot more,

If you just open that hidden, secret door.

You look at me and you want to know,
You look at me and you have to ask.
You look at me and you want the glow,
You look at me and you think it is a mask.

It took some time but it happened to me,
And a few months were worth it all,
For now I can be all I want to be,
And now I follow a different call.

So ask me what it is I did,
And I will tell you that you can be the same,
It is not a secret and its not hidden under a lid,
OMNILIFE is not a fake or a game.

Come join this family for better health,
Come join this family and feel the glow,
For you can get more than increase in wealth,
For OMNILIFE will let you like a river flow.

There is so much we can do,

There is so much we can say,

There is so much for you,

There is so much each and every day.

So come and join the force,

Come and do your best,

Come and take the course,

Come and CCC will do the rest.

For there is so much for you to learn,

There is so much for you to want,

And the diploma that you will earn,

Will turn nightmares into dreams that will not haunt.

So take the challenge and you will see,

That there is a future waiting for you,

And your dream will become a reality,

By accepting that it is what you want to do.

Tame as they can be,

It is plain and clear to see,

That I Can and You Can,

Have adapted to our world.

They come in every morning,

To get their daily meal,

And if you are sleeping,

They'll wake you up with a squeal.

They are officially a part of the family,

And act like two children,

Who walk around quite happily,

As their father talks to them.

Most times they only want affection,

A cuddle and a pat,

Then their wings flutter into action.

As they sit on your shoulder or in your lap.

Nap time may be under the computer table,

While relax music fills the air.

One day they will be chatting and able,

To whistle sweet music so clear.

For now we look on with love and in wonder,

As their presence in our lives is added joys.

We understand why we had to go yonder,

To bring home these two little boys.

So I Can and You Can you are so bright,

And we are happy that you are here,

For you fill our morning and our night,

With your love so special and so dear.

A friend is someone special,

A friend is someone true.

A friend will always be there,

When you need someone there for you.

A friend always listens,

A friend never says "good for you."

A friend will cry when you cry,

And wipe your tears by and by.

A friend will say just the right words,

A friend will share your pain.

A friend will be more than one of the girls,

Who will listen as you tell the tale over again.

So be a friend and you will see,

What treasure there is in caring,

For if you are a friend to me,

There will be much we will be sharing.

I love the way I feel,

I love the way I am,

I love the fact that this is real,

I love the idea that I can.

The things of this world are nothing,

If we don't understand,

That life is just a past time,

That leads us by the hand.

If we should stop and think,

Of all the things we have done,

We would probably not sleep a wink,

For our minds would be on the run.

But one thing is for sure,

That our choices we can re-arrange,

For when we choose a door,

Nothing says it we cannot change.

Living on the coast in the town of Corozal,

Can be very special to one and all.

For the beautiful Corozal Bay glitters,

When the sunrise over it flickers.

Oh, to sit and enjoy nature at its best,

In a place so different from all the rest.

Two Mayan monuments are a part of us,

That offer a past that refuses to become dust.

The friendly people with smiling faces,

You've never seen the likes of so many races,

Joined together and living in harmony,

The wealthy and even those without money.

I think the rays of the sunrise is involved,

I bet it shines out rays of love.

Oh, don't get me wrong we have our problems, too,

But we won't stop and wonder what next to do.

The sunrise is too beautiful to ignore,

So go ahead and open the door.

Let it in your home and your heart,

Trust me, it will be hard to break apart.

For if you want a colourful, peaceful place,

To relax and run away from the old rat race,

You must visit my town of COROZAL,

We welcome you - ONE AND ALL!!

You said you'd love me,

Why did you have to lie?

I believed we could be

Together -I forgot love sometimes die.

That just goes to show,

That I can still believe,

Words that from you did flow,

Because I never expected you to leave.

The years have gone by really fast,

And once it would have seem like just yesterday to me,

Back then I thought your love would last,

I guess it was because the real you I did not see.

But now my life is challenging and new,

Now there is someone special in my heart,

Now there is new meaning to all I do,

Now I am glad we moved apart.

Which is followed by sincerity that in your heart lies.
You are a one of a kind,
Supportive, Honest and Fine!

In your voice is that soft motherly love,

Your laughter is filled with warmth so true,
We've all been touched just by being near you.

Will never be forgotten as time goes by.
To this institution You will always be a part,
For giving loyal service from the heart.

Thank you for always giving without hesitation.

I still love that look in your eyes,

I still hate when my time with you flies.

I still can't get enough of your time,

I still wish that the bells could chime.

I still want you by my side forever,

I still want to be with you through stormy weather.

I still love the sound of your voice on the phone,

I still love every moment that we spend alone.

I still hungry for your touch when I am away,

I still want you to hold me every single day.

I still love you, my knight in white,

I still love you with all my might.

I still love you with all my heart,

I still love you and hate when we're apart.

I still love you with all we've been through,

I still love you for all the things you do,

I still hope my dreams you'll fulfill,

I still love you and I always will.

For all the songs you sang at night,

For all the songs that we share,

For all the songs you sent to me,
Thanks for an act so loving and free.

For all the songs you have yet to sing,

And all the things that we will do!
Every time that I am alone,
I wish you'd call me on the phone.

I lay in bed and dream of you,
And all the things we'll have to do.
So many things come to my mind,
I can't wait for our bodies to entwine.

Why have you done this to me?
Now only you can set me free.
Free to love, to want, to give.
All of me to you as long as I live.

So make my dream a reality, my love.
Take me to the mountains and clouds above.
Light your flame and consume me with your fire,
For only you can satisfy my flaming desire.

I'm sitting on top of the world,

Feeling like a teenage girl,

Wondering where I am heading,

And enjoying this new life I am living.

This new me is quite unique,

And I'll let you in so you can have a peek,

And share this new life that is mine to keep,

There is no secret to it neither dark nor deep.

You have got to just accept that life can be good,

And do all that is right as everyone should.

A positive mind is all you need,

So all you should do is no big deed.

Help others and let love flow,

And soon you will surely know,

That the new person that you see,

Is being all that she can be.

It plays tricks on us,
And tells us things it must.
But we don't like it at all,
So we aren't prepared for the fall.

But it will slowly sneak in,
For sooner or later it does begin.
And while we go about our days,
We must be prepared as everyone says.

For there is no stopping this,
There is no chance that we will be missed.
For with time it puts us in a "cage",
It's that thing we all call AGE!

We travelled deep into the heart of the country
Not knowing what we would find.
It was definitely a trip for a journal entry,
That took us back into time.

We stopped so Victor could say hi to his mother,
And Abel could try his first pozol.
We were told our trip would take us still further,
But we decided to put that on hold.

That weekend we had gotten some little "peeps",
And the idea of getting more was high.
So, Abel asked a young girl across the street,
And she bargained with us for two green babies by and by.

These baby parrots were so tiny,
One barely had feathers at all.
But at feeding time they get really noisy,
I and Can is what they are called.

He feeds them like a mother would,
And they have gotten use to this.
They would surely say thank you if they could,
For a feeding he never goes and miss.

There are words they must learn to say,
As they are now part of this new habitat.
Hi!, Welcome!, Prehispanico!, Massage?
These green babies that we have got.

They will never be caged against their will,
For that would be mean to do,
So everyday they sit on Triccia's window sill,
And accept their daddy's "I love you!"

Living in a world
Where we want to believe
Or want to accept
That some things will never be
That's where we all have been
But we try to ignore
The echoes of our cries
The yearning of our souls.

"Why," woman, "I ask myself
Why is life a struggle?
Why is there so much pain?"

"Because we are only human,"
A voice seems to say.
"Because this is the only way,
The only way that we can exist."

How wonderful the breeze blows,
Even in the evenings when the sun sets,
Or when the moon over the bay glows,
Spreading the feeling of Belize that everyone gets.

To feel so free and to be alive,
In a ownderful land of nature's best,
Is how the person feels who will scuba dive,
Climb a mountain or sit in the shade to take a rest.

Birds chirp in the early dawn,
As the sun rays smile over the land,
It may be a busy day and you may be mowing the lawn,
Or driving and listening to the music of a Belizean band.

Clearly this land is a place of peace,
Where everyone moves to the rhythm and a flow,
There is so much love for hearts to release,
Only in Belize can you feel this glow.

While the world cries for peace,

Please listen to us and cease,

All that which causes so much pain,

Is there many who can stand without shame?

Each of us has hurt someone,

Down the road to becoming a man,

Or woman set in her ways,

Let's now hope for better days.

Let's join hands and seek a new,

And better place for all not a few,

We can do it if we try,

Please listen to this cry.

Join hands in friendship and see,

What this world can really be.

If you share in the happiness everywhere,

We can have many more friends, ever so dear.
