BECAUSE I LOVE YOU

So you walked in,

You were all excited to imagine,
That I was upset at you,
So what could I do?
I LOVE YOU!

You spoke of your night,
I was glad we wouldn't fight,
For I was really angry at you,
So what did I do?
I LOVE YOU!

I'd gone for a ride,
To calm the anger I could not hide,
For you made me really mad at you,
So what did I do?
I LOVE YOU!

You suggested we went for a ride,
So we drove by the bay side,
And talked of the things we'd do,
And what did I do?
I LOVE YOU!

Darn, you win all the time,
If in anger a tree I climb,
You bring me down and make me smile,
And I forget the anger I had for a while,
BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!

JUST A FEW LITTLE WORDS


Just few little words,
And you can break my heart.

Just a few little words,
And you can tear it apart.

Just a few little words,
And you made me feel blue.

Just a few little words,
And you probably don't even know what you do.

Just a few little words,
That is all it really takes.

Just a few little words,
And oh how my heart breaks.

Just a few little words,
Just a few little words,

Just a few little words.
Just a few little WORDS.

SMILE



(I wrote this for you because you needed cheering up)


You may feel down,

You may want to run,

But SMILE and it will remove the frown.


You may feel sad,

You may feel really bad,

But SMILE and you'll nolonger be mad.


You may feel blue,

You may not know what to do,

But SMILE and your worries will be few.


You may feel lost,

You may wonder why you're not the boss,

But SMILE for its one thing with no cost.


You have today,

You can do things your way,

So SMILE and the clouds won't be gray.


You can be glad,

You can make good out of bad,

So SMILE and you won't feel sad.


If you have a doubt,

And you don't know what you are about,

Just SMILE and send those thoughts south.


For a special person you are,

Not by close but by really far,

So SMILE and stop the personal war.


SMILE,

SMILE,

SMILE.

YOU'LL FEEL BETTER IN A LITTLE WHILE.

FOR OUR "KNOW IT ALL" FRIEND



Para NOMAR, Porque te queremos mucho, compadre!


You are a one of a kind,

You've always something on your line.

You know too much and talk alot,

But you are fun and that is that.


When you want to have your own way,

You make us listen to what you have to say.

And there is no stopping you when you eat,

You are pleasant and friend to all you meet.


You drive around on your taxi cab,

And know all the little places and the tab,

Is never really enough for what your do,

You are a friend indeed and oh so true.

ON THE RANCH


PARA JONATHAN CON TODO NUESTRO AMOR, DE PARTE DE ABEL Y BRENDA



Run across the grass in a world so free,


Be happy and smile at all you see.


In your world all is wonderful,


In your world everything is beautiful.




The ducks and chicks and the horse walk around,


There is so much going on in the skies and on the ground.


When you walk to the lagoon for a swim or barbecue,


You will always have fun in whatever you do.

BELIEVE IN "YOU"



Life is changing every day,

It is harder some will say.

It is exactly what we make of it,

We just have to keep our wit.


Life is a game and we are players all,

It may lead us if we listen to the call.

It can make us do the things we should,

And make us do the things we could.


Life is not impossible, my friend,

So don't throw in the towel, just count to ten.

There is much that you can do,

If you only have faith in YOU!

LET'S KEEP THE PEACE


The blue skies are beautiful today,

The clouds are so white they seem to pray.

The birds chirp and fly from tree to tree.

The animals walk around ever so free.


The world is a place of harmony,

The world can be all you want it to be.

But there are places where there is suffering,

And there seem to be too many fighting and killing.


It's time to do something before it is too late.

It's time for the law to circulate.

It's time for us to do our share,

It's time for us to show we care.

THE TEAM NO ONE CAN BEAT



Once again the time came,

Once again we set off for the weekend.

Away from where life is a game,

We went to our resort once again.


This time the place was filled with guests,

But still it was fun to have gone west.

The first night we sat under the stars,

In a country life without any bars.


Gabriel and his wife, Mari are so friendly,

And their son, Jonathan is so healthy.

Jose is Mari's brother and he is also kind,

In their world everything is so fine.


We came back to Chetumal so you could sing,

As usual your talent amazes everyone and cheers ring.

You are in a world of love and peace,

Being with you my amazement it seems will never cease.


Then back at mid-night to our hide away

To spend the night with a promise of another wonderful day.

And so it was when we set off for Bacalar after two,

Where we took pictures and you told me of the post you wanted me to do.


It was so nice to spend another weekend with you,

It is always great to share time like we do.

With a year gone by my love for you grows,

I won't lie, we have had our rows.


But someone once said that life had ups and downs,

We just have to keep focus on not wearing many frowns.

For there is so much to enjoy in this world,

We just have to keep planted and not go on a swirl.


So, my friend, may we continue to enjoy times together,

For being with you I can fight any weather.

Together we make quite a team no one will be able to beat,

We'll be together forever as we've been since our heart did meet .

ABEL MARTIN



Amazing person that you are,

Brightening my day.

Energy you send me even when you're afar,

Love is all we need you say.


Moments of happiness we share,

Ambitious thoughts tell me you care.

Rare yet all the right things you do,

Tentative and always so true.

Intelligent and willing to help all,

Natural and willing to answer any call.


Lacking nothing for you are free,

Oblivious of the time, you let things be.

Perfect designer and ideas you give,

Enormous talent and happy to live.

Zesty and perky about all you see.


Ruler of your universe,

Open-minded you have no reserve.

Daring to give and expecting of us,

Reliable to assist without a fuss.

Infectious is you laughter and song,

Quiet and peaceful until I came along.

Universalist and lecturer of movtivation,

Electrifying yet free from captivation.

Zippy friend, lover and companion.

THAT IS WHY I LOVE YOU!



You are doing it again,

You are more than my friend.

You know you miss me when I'm away,

And that my voice brightens your day.


All the little things that you do,

Make me increase my love for you.

They tell me how much you care,

And that is why you are so dear.


You say I love you because you're bad!

Darling, you are the best lover I've ever had!

You are the man who fills my thoughts and heart,

Whenever we have to be apart.


You have become a part of me,

It is plain for all to see.

I am happy that we met,

And there is so much for us yet.


So guide me through the fields of green,

And take me up the mountain supreme.

You know just what to do,

That is why I love you!

JUST A LITTLE RAIN



Splish splash it goes on the window pane,

Look out world, here comes some rain.

Thunder roll and lightning flash,

And down comes the rain in more than a splash.


It bathes all the darkness and dust away,

And when it is over it brightens the day.

Water is a blessing to make things grow,

That is why we love it so.

INVADING ONE'S PRIVACY



To invade one's home and steal one's possession is the work of the ignorant who does not realize that asking for something is easier than stealing it.

(Brenda A. Ysaguirre)


When it occurs it is so sad,

It is something that makes you mad.

It can never be erased from your mind,

For on it you will always reside.


They come in when you are off guard,

And what they do is really hard.

They invade your privacy and your peace.

They let you feel fear and anger you release.


For every right that they make wrong,

For every weakness that they make strong,

I hope they pay for what they do,

And I hope that justice can come through.

JONATHAN

Para Jonathan, con Amor

Ah youth, how great you are,
When you are older will you want a car?
Today you run around on the farm,
Today you are protected from all harm.


At age two there is so much to do.
At age two everyone loves you.
You are the picture of good health,
The lagoon and the farm add to your "wealth".

You are happy as you run around,
You are strong and enjoying the sun.
You fill the day with your joy,
You are mommy and daddy's little boy.
Jonathan, you are a child of the universe.
You fill our hearts until it wants to burst.
In your childhood happiness you play,
May God bless you each and every day.

REMEMBERING A SPECIAL TIME TOGETHER



The ranch was green and the sun shone bright,

The lagoon was clear even in the moonlight.

The chickens, turkeys and ducks went about their way,

Oh it was two glorious and memorable days.


The peace gave us time to relax and de-stress,

It made us realize that this idea was the best.

There is no doubt in my mind what we did was great,

Now I realize that loving you didn't come late.


At just the right time you came into my life and my heart,

At just the right time we how accept that we are a part,

Of this thing we call friendship and love and happiness,

For you are one of a kind and no doubt you are the best!

A WEEKEND GET-A-WAY



You said we'd go for a weekend away,

You added it was time for us to have our day.

So we drove off on Saturday and headed west,

To a place in the country where we would rest.


It was a beautiful day when we headed out,

Leaving Chetumal in the East and Corozal in the South.

It was really nice to be on the road with you,

I was looking forward to the things we would do.


We drove for a while and then bought some cheese,

Everything was going with such ease.

Suddenly you stopped and we reversed a little bit,

This was where we were going, this was it!


So we drove in off the road for a while,

And were met by four happy persons each with a smile.

Our things were loaded onto a wheel barrow,

This was a place of happiness and never of sorrow.


We climbed the stairs to our cabana for the time we would be there,

And around us we admired all the things we could see and hear.

It was a fabulous weekend hide-way,

And I am glad you decided to take the day.


These are the things I love about you,

These are things that I admire that you do.

Thank you for a weekend filled with love and good cheer.

Thank you my darling, thank you my dear.

IT'S ONE YEAR NOW!



It's one year now,

That you and I met.


It's one year now,

And there are still things we haven't done yet.


It's one year now,

You've taught me how to live.


It's one year now,

And there has been so much to recieve and give.


It's one year now,

I've been smiling at you.


It's one year now,

That you make me feel the way I do.


It's one year now,

And I am the luckiest woman there can be.


It's one year now,

And my love is plain to see.


It's one year now,

And I want you forever by my side.


It's one year now,

And there is nothing for us to hide.


It's one year now,

And we are heading for you two.


It's one year now,

Since I began saying, "I love you!"

DON'T WORRY, THINGS WILL GET BETTER

When the sky is grey,
And you had a bad day,
Don't give in, just smile.

When everything seems to go wrong,
And the bank line seems too long,
Don't get angry, it'll take a while.

When your friends laugh at you,
And you don't know what to do,
Don't be mad, that's life.

If the water pipe burst,
Or your headache gets worst,
Don't worry, continue the strife.

If your vehicle gets a flat,
And someone told you you're bigger than your hat,
Don't make a fuss, it you must just delete.

For sooner or later things will get better,
Someone may even send you a thank you letter,
And life will look you in the face and you will be complete.
