Where You Are

What’s the sky without the stars?

What’s a story without a heart?

What am I, if I’m not standing where you are?

What’s goodbye without a kiss?

What’s a penny without a wish?

What’s tonight, if you’re not here to spend it with?

And where’s the light if there’s no dark?

Where’s the flame if there’s no spark?

And what am I, if I’m not standing where you are?

And what’s a bird without a song?

What’s the day without the dawn?

What’s a road if you’re not there to walk along?

What’s the warmth without the cold?

What’s a tale that’s never told?

What is love if it’s not us growing old?

Where’s the light if there’s no dark?

Where’s the flame if there’s no spark?

And what am I, if I’m not standing where you are?

What am I?

If I’m not standing where you are…

Don’t Quit

“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will;

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill;

When the funds are low and the debts are high;

And you want to smile but you have to sigh..

When all is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit

Success is failure turned inside out;

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt;

And you can never tell how close you are;

It may be near when it seems far

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit;

It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit…”
