S: Poetry By Amber Carter
BC: All things grow better with love.
FC: Walking The Footsteps
1: Walk in my footsteps, so you can see my life. Walk in my footsteps, so you wont judge me. Walk in my footsteps, so then you will understand. As you walk in my footsteps, Tell me. Does your perspective of me change? Step out of my footsteps and into yours, Note To You, Don't judge someone without knowing their life. | My Steps
2: "Sit & Pray" | The Sky turns blueish-gray, Kids come in and cannot play. Frightened dogs start to bark, All of a sudden it gets really dark. Beautiful leaves fall to the ground, And furthermore there is no sound. People in houses scared and torn, Thinking all along its a typical storm. But what they think is all a myth, On that cold morning of December 5th. Lightening strikes ten miles away, While everyone watches with nothing to say. Days go by and things get clearer, And in that town there's no more fear. People wondered what happened those days, While all they could do was Sit & Pray.
3: "Sometimes we make mistakes, But its up to us to learn, move forward, and remember to never do it again." | "A Life Without God Is No Life At All"
4: Let me be honest... I WILL love a guy like I loved you. And when I do I pray to God that he will love me and treat me way better then you ever have! | "I Will Love" | Life can come at you like a ton of bricks, Getting back up is you taking a risk. | "Take A Risk"
5: All I ever wanted was for you to love me For you to say "Yes, she is mine" Was that so hard for you to say to others? Or was your surroundings distracting your mind? Three years ago we had our child He is such a hand-some little boy. He reminds me of you each and every day His smile brings so much joy. I hate how we are forever apart And we argue and have no trust As our minds have mini races I feel like our brains will bust. Well Four years have passed now And nothing has seemed to change. One day we are in love with one another And the next it's the other we blame. Back then we were young and had no clue But we have grown since those days Its like we grew apart with distance But know in my heart you will forever stay! | "I Wanted"
6: Its that moment when you still get butterflies in your stomach after years of knowing him. Its that moment when you cant go a minute a day without thinking about him. Its that moment when you realize your life would feel incomplete without him next to you to share it with. Its that moment when you forgive him for something extreme and let it go so he can make it up to you. Its that moment when you would rather spend your night with him then have a girls night out. Its that moment when you fall asleep on the phone and wake up loving the way he snores in your ear. Its that moment when in his arms you feel safe, loved, and on top of the world. Its the moment when no-one can ever make you feel the way he does no matter how hard they try. Its that moment when he does the little things that make you happy. Its the moment when he loves you without make-up on while wearing sweats laid back | "That Moment"
7: Its that moment when he gives you the world and cherishes you through thick and thin. Its that moment when you stare at him and it feels like its just you and him in the room. Its the moment when he does something special for you just to see you smile. Its that moment when you would do anything to keep him happy & secure. Its that moment when you give him the world so he realizes he has someone special and would never give you up. Its that moment when you realize you are in love.
8: "Around You" | Whenever I am around you I get butterflies, Especially whenever you look me in the eyes. And then I get nervous and mess up my words, Then wonder if you think I am absurd. When I am around you I wonder what you think, If you like me in red, blue, black, or pink. And if you like my hair up or down, Or if I was just gonna be your rebound. Whenever I am around you I check you out, I look at you closely, up and down. I like your personality, style, looks, and hair, And some more things I cannot share. When I am around you I feel like ME, And in this world you are all I see. And Kevin Baby I want to be your clutch, Your the only one I'll ever Love this much!
9: Live, Life, Love. Three powerful words for when push comes to shove. Its Simple but yet its Complicated, Live your life with love & be dedicated. | "Live Your Life" | "Lonely Love Trees" | Never regret who you have loved, For they are the lonely trees on your road to life full of joy, love, and happiness!
10: "Our Path"
11: A Valley Is Like Our Life. There are mountains, paths, rocks, Trees and rivers. God has set out a long or short path for us to travel everyday and down that path we see these magnificent trees (opportunities) that we are praying to grasp and hold on to, but eventually we have to let go and move on. Then we have those little and big rocks (obstacles) where we begin to trip and stumble which makes it harder for us to move forward, but no matter what we continue down our path. Eventually we reach the biggest mountain (our rock bottom) and it seems like forever until we reach the other side, but in the back of our minds we remember that so far we have made it through with the blessings of God and he will not fail us now. We begin to travel over the mountain from our path leaving all of the rocks and trees behind us. We get to the other side and its so beautiful we see a never-ending river and as we travel down our path God has created for us, we begin to realize we had to leave many things in our past to get to the beautiful life we live now! All thanks to the one and only God. Life is too short to give up. Have faith and remember ALL things are possible through God, Our Lord And Savior
12: "The Path You Choose To Walk Down Determines The Success You Will Inherit In Life" | "Others may see a break-up as a loss, but I will see it as a gain. Its just the next step closer to your soul mate!"
13: "I Want The REAL YOU, Not Someone Everyone Else Wants You To Be, Because In The End You Will End Up Miserable Wishing You Were Happy Being YOUSELF"
14: Learn to understand life will never be handed to you. If you want to succeed in life you have to work for your own and be patient. With time comes opportunity, success, and power.
15: Was it worth it? All those times you lied. Coming home to me, Then looking me in my eyes. All those nights you spent with her In my face you would smile, Knowing I could see through you But you were still in denial. Please do not think I am a fool for you, Now go get your things and pack, You will miss everything I did for you, Now be gone and never look back! | "Was It Worth It?"
16: I just wanna hold you one last time Marry you now so you will forever be mine. Kiss on your neck and hold your hands Kids someday and make life long plans. Living our lives happy and free Knowing your my soul-mate and yours is me. Laughs and smiles fill our rooms And on our balcony my flowers will bloom. But hearing your name brings tears to my eyes Knowing I cant have you and saying Good-bye. Those dreams I had will never be real Just wish you knew how I really feel. | "My Dream"
17: "One of the hardest things to do is look at someone in the eyes and tell them goodbye knowing its your last"
18: Mom, You were truly a phenomenal women. As I look into your eyes through pictures I see strength and love. You were a beautiful, ambitious, attentive, generous, kind, loving, caring, dedicated, independent, sophisticated woman. You have taught me so much and I thank-you for everything you have passed on to me. All the times we had were unforgettable and can never be replaced and I appreciate it when you pushed through the pain just to satisfy me and Alycia's needs and wants. Every time you smiled you would light up the room and always made others laugh and have a great time. You have impacted so many lives and have bettered others. | Tina L.C.Williams | 1967-2006
19: I cant imagine how life was for you but I know you are happy, smiling down on your loved ones. Our last few moments together are priceless and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Mom, I love you and miss you so much words will never describe, but I know in my heart you are in a better, peaceful place on the right hand of God. You are truly my angel and I thank God for allowing you to be the mother of me and my sister. It is truly an honor to call you My mother! I will always Love you and carry you wherever God takes me... your youngest daughter, Amber Nicole ::I will never forget the night I held your hand praying and expressing to you that it will be okay for you to give up and allow God to put you on his side and take control. It simply wasn't a Good-Bye but an until we meet again! Rest In Peace A love NEVER forgotten! I Love You
20: Your life will have drama, ups, and downs Smiles, laughs, and lonely frowns. Its up to you on how you make it through Worth while and something you can pursue. | "Life's What You Make It"
21: Love your life, live it well Regret nothing, farewell. | Farewell :) | Thoughts, Love, Pain, Tears all by Amber Carter
