    Abba - Happy New Year - YouTube.flv: POEATREEMAN ONE NEW YEAR, A MELTING POT
    From: POEATREEMAN | Oct 25, 2011 |

    TO ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD,& TO ITS PEOPLE
    IF I THOUGHT HUMANITY WAS A DISH,
    I WOULD SERVE IT TO ALL ITS PEOPLE
    TO SHARE IN ITS GOODNESS..



    THE GOOD TIMES ARE WHEN WE CARE AGAIN,
    EACH DAY IS BEST TO DO.
    ALL THE YEARS SHOULD CARRY THROUGH.
    AFTER ALL IT IS BEST FOR YOU.
    THE WORLD WILL BE MUCH BRIGHTER.
    IT IS NICE TO SEE HOPES SHINNING .STAR
    MAN CAN TRAVEL TO THE HEART
    BEYOND IT IS NOT.
    IT IS HERE YOU KNOW.
    IT ONLY TAKES ONE STEP TO DO.
    THE OUTER LIMIT LIES WITH YOU
    REACH FOR YOUR HEART.
    YOU WILL HAVE FOUND GOD.
    YOUR FAITH WILL BE MUCH GREATER.
    THEN YOU CAN MOVE THE WORLD. TO LOVE



    I AM ONE HEART WAITING FOR A TEAR.
    MY NEW YEAR RESOLUTION
    TO GIVE HOPE FOR YEARS.



    BEST WISHES TO THE WORLD FOR 2012 .
    PEACE I PRAY WE WILL SEE THE DAY..
    FOR MANKIND NEEDS TO SHARE ITS HEART..
    OR DIE FOR IT DID NOT.

    ONE NEW YEAR

    One New year
    will bring me a day

    One New year
    Has all
    the promises
    of tomorrow

    One New year
    To find
    the best
    of our world

    One New year
    To make
    peace with sorrow

    One New year
    To love
    someone new

    One New year
    To mend
    all the cares

    One New year
    To keep
    friendship
    from falling

    One New year
    To thank
    all the days
    past gone

    One new year
    To dream
    hope
    for tomorrow

    One New year
    To
    thank God
    you're alive

    One New year
    To make
    it all worth while.

    A Poeatreeman

    If I bring
    care to this day

    I'll have
    added a tear to life

    With the World
    I'll have given love.

    Dedicated to Mike Cianocchiall

    TO THE WORLD FOR HOPE IS IN IT.

    TO ALL POETS MERRY CHRISTMAS

    UNDER THE TREE

    Under The Tree
    Is not once a year,
    It is all through Life.

    The Presents are there,
    Not all will be opened

    Each Day is a Gift ,
    For Me to open

    What I find in it,
    Is the Best I put in it

    For as I am unwrapping it,
    I am tying the bow

    The Gift I am giving,
    I am making it more

    I am putting My Heart in it,
    So I can give more

    Each Day is a Present,
    I can give too

    Love is My Best One,
    I can give to You

    Do not wait for Christmas,
    To give it too

    Share it Each Day,
    You will have it too

    No Presents to unwrap,
    When Love is Open

    Under The Tree,
    Let Us Look To Find Peace

    Under The Heavens

    Let Us Look To God
    To Start The Day

    For No Greater Gift
    Can I Give Humanity

    Than To Give Love
    Each Day

    Keep The Heart Open
    Understanding Can Be

    Forge With God
    That No Sword Will Be Used

    Peace Will Come
    When Man Loses Hatred

    Hope and Love
    are The Best I Can Give Today

    I Added A Prayer
    That We would Find Our Way

    God Willing!
    We Will See The Day.


    Dedicated To The World

    For Each Heart
    is One Light On The Tree

    A Poeatreeman

    A Poet's Note

    When You Hang Your Heart Out

    Remember The Tears

    They Are The Snowflakes
    Falling For Years

    They Will Blanket Love
    To Cheer The Heart

    Remember To Care
    You Will Light Up
    Wishing For Peace
    The Light Will Stay On

    Hoping The World
    Will Get Along

    Asking God
    Will Help Us All

    I Pray The Hour
    Will Not Be Long..

    THE MEASURE OF A MAN SUNG BY ELTON JOHN
    [ROCKY]



    YouTube - ELTON JOHN - THE MEASURE OF A MAN (ROCKY V)

    http://poeatreeman.blogspot.com/2011/04/measure-of-man-sung-by-elton-john.html

    WHEN THE TRUMPETS BLOW STRONG

    I hear
    The echoes of a call
    That once was loud
    Now seems gone
    Calling back
    To be
    Remembered.

    Dare
    I wake them up at all
    Or should I keep them
    Where they are
    In
    The Triumphs of the past
    Where they're held
    In Fond Remembrance?

    Dare
    I beckon to the call
    Of The Trumpets
    Blowing strongly
    Calling back
    For me to answer
    Or can
    I Reach where I was
    Then
    On top of it all?

    Or will
    I Fail and Lose it all
    With
    The Triumphs of before
    Or be Remembered
    For my Feats
    Because
    I Could not
    Face Defeat?

    What purpose
    Do I serve?

    In this Quest
    For going on
    To Come back
    Once more
    To Hear
    The Trumpets
    Blowing?

    Will I
    Serve it or myself?

    For Do
    I have
    The Strength
    I need
    To overcome
    All I must
    Knowing
    I Could Fail?

    Most of all
    To myself

    Do
    I have
    The will in me
    if
    I answer
    Yes,
    Is it all
    I need?

    For what is it
    That I want
    To Prove myself
    To Whom or What?

    Written for And Dedicated to
    Sugar Ray Leonard

    A Poeatreeman

    The Greatness of Oneself
    Is to Triumph over Evil
    For Goodness is the Fight
    You must Win
    The Rounds are not Ten
    It is Minutes to the End.


    A Poet’ Note

    THE CROWN
    Oh how I would love
    To recover the crown
    It’s hard to regain
    When
    life is wearing it now.

    hope is a candle,
    still yet lit.

    Faith is the candle,
    that hope can exist.

    Love is the flame

    that god
    can shine the way.

    Belief is the light

    that keeps
    the dark away.

    IN SEARCH OF FAITH


    I long
    to see the God

    Who
    waits for me

    I long
    to be with He

    I long
    to know
    if I'm loved

    I long
    to find
    how
    I have done

    I long
    to search
    this world to find

    The God
    I have not seen

    I long
    to know
    He's
    here with me

    For
    I am not
    without
    someone

    I long
    for Him
    to touch
    my heart

    For
    I will know
    He's
    come to me

    I long
    to find
    the faith
    I need

    To carry me
    through
    this world I'm in

    I long
    to search
    my whole life
    through

    To keep
    my doubts
    and faith
    with you

    I long
    to see
    the Heavens
    open up

    With your heart
    just take me in

    I Long,
    I Long For Thee.

    A Poeatreeman

    Love is the agony,
    Of Two Hearts
    The Soul of Two Tears,

    THE MOUNTAIN OF LIFE




    Take each stride
    To step to life
    In each step
    Strive for best.

    Take the Mountain
    To the top
    Carry through
    all you do.

    If it seems
    Hard to bare
    Know someone's
    There with you.

    Though the load
    Seems more,
    Than you can do

    Life is only greater!
    When it is shared by you.

    Into life we must live
    Taking each Season
    To the top

    In our hands
    is all we can
    The Mountain of life
    is life itself.

    As with each new peak
    it must be climbed

    There's only , One
    Who will hold us down
    Or one who will hold us up

    The will to climb
    above ourselves.

    The Greatest
    is not the Climb To the Top

    The Climb who made us
    Find our self.

    Through all life has to do

    To all we must go through

    Is to find our reasons
    Why we're here

    To know
    God is there with you..

    Rest against

    When
    I hear your Heart
    I will carry you

    For
    your Faith
    and Love
    Have spoken to Me

    When
    you're Tired
    and can't go on

    Remember
    When
    you carried Me

    Your
    Faith and Love
    was there with Me.

    THERE ARE

    There are
    certain things
    I cannot have

    Yet
    Faith
    is one thing
    I can hold

    There
    are times
    when
    I am faced
    with myself

    all I see
    is my own self

    There
    are times
    when
    life has
    held me up

    I wonder
    why
    I did not fall

    There
    are times
    when
    I think
    I can't go on

    Yet
    there
    is someone
    there
    to push me on

    There
    are times
    when I feel I can

    others seem
    to hold me back

    There
    are times
    when
    I am by myself

    Yet
    I wonder
    who is
    watching me

    There
    are times
    that I will
    feel it all

    not think
    there
    won't be more

    There
    are times
    that I will
    never know

    Nor
    see it pass
    in front of me

    There
    are times
    that will
    try my best

    all I can do
    is not let go

    There
    are times
    when
    I am praying

    Yet
    I know
    He is listening
    to me

    There
    are times

    Yet
    I am here
    to face them all

    Knowing
    Faith
    will let me see it all.

    A THOUGHT!

    The only time
    that is hard to face
    Is when
    I am face to face

    The only time
    that I will see
    Is when
    I am looking
    not at myself

    The only time
    that I will see
    Is when
    I am looking
    through my heart

    The only time
    I will see it all
    Is when God
    is there
    to show me all.

    A Poeatreeman

    What is important
    is that I find God

    What is the question

    If you have to ask
    know you both are here

    The answer
    is not important

    For
    who is wise
    that can answer

    Faith
    it believes
    without question.

    WHOSE CALLING THE PLAYS ?


    IF GOD IS ;

    THE QUARTERBACK.


    TEBOW IS MERELY

    CARRYING THE BALL.


    IT TAKES FAITH,

    TO SCORE.


    BELIEVING IN GOD

    IS THE MESSAGE,

    HE THROWS.


    PASS IT ON

    FAITH WILL GROW.

    Chloë Agnew - Going Home


    TO CHLOE AGNEW A BEAUTIFUL SONG
    FOR OUR TROOPS COMING HOME,
    IN GOD'S HAND OR RIGHT AT HOME

    I AM NOT A HERO

    Just a SOLDIER
    Who
    Served the Cause.

    Those
    Who Died
    are HERO'S Lost.

    They
    Fought
    For FREEDOM
    Paid the Cost.

    Those
    Who Suffered
    Wounds in WAR
    Took
    the BRUNT
    For Us All.

    Those
    INFLICTED
    by The Pain
    Felt
    Each Care
    DYING, Slowly.

    Those
    Who Prayed
    for The End
    Are
    all The HEARTS

    Who
    want PEACE Again.

    Those
    Who DIED
    REMEMBER
    Their Loss.

    They
    PAID A Price
    For
    FREEDOM'S WAR

    I AM
    NOT A HERO.

    Just
    a SOLDIER
    Who Gave it All.

    I Hope
    my COUNTRY
    is Better Off?
    I Hope
    my LIFE,
    Was Worth the Cost?

    I AM
    NOT A HERO

    Just
    One of GOD'S
    Soldiers Now
    Who
    Washed
    on HIS Shore.

    Dedicated To
    The Soldiers in Iraq
    & Afghanistan

    A Poeatreeman

    Honor
    All
    Who Served
    Freedom's War

    For
    on
    Our Shores
    Lies
    Freedom's Door
    Always
    Open
    to Wash Ashore.

    I
    Pray
    We Never
    Close its Door
    I
    Pray
    it Never
    Leaves
    Our Shore.

    LYRICS FOR GOING HOME

    Goin' home, goin' home
    I'm a goin' home;
    Quiet like, some still day,
    I'm just goin' home.

    It's not far, just close by,
    Through an open door;
    Work all done, care laid by,
    Going to fear no more

    Mother's there, expecting me
    Father's waitin' too
    Lot's o'folk gather'd there,
    All the friends I knew,
    All the friends I knew.

    Home, home, I'm goin' home!

    Nothin' lost, all's gain
    No more fret nor pain,
    No more stumbling on the way
    No more longing for the day,
    Going to roam no more!

    Mornin' star lights the way
    Res'less dream all done
    Shadows gone, break o'day,
    Real life just begun

    there's no break,there's no end.
    Just a livin' on,
    Wide awake, with a smile
    Goin' on and on.

    Goin' home, goin' home.
    I'm just goin' home.
    It's not far, just close by,
    Through an open door.

    I'm just goin' home,
    Goin' home.

    [heavens crying]
    tears from heaven
    sometimes


    when it rains

    i feel

    it's god's tears

    washing me.


    Sometimes


    when it rains

    i think

    it's god's anger

    flooding

    the seas.


    Sometimes


    when it rains

    i feel

    god's sorrow

    pouring through.


    Sometimes


    when it rains

    god is washing

    the earth clean.



    Poeatreeman

    a
    deluge of love

    pours over me

    then i know

    it's god's love

    showering me

    HERE IS ONE,
    AN HOUR BEFORE CHRISTMAS
    HI Z,


    TIME TO THINK OF ALL YOU HAVE DONE,
    PRAY A BETTER YEAR WILL COME.

    CHANGE MUST COME FROM YOU

    TO KNOW THE BEST WILL COME.

    HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD LIFE,
    NOT JUST FOR THIS YEAR.
    BUT ALL TOO COME.

    AN HOUR BEFORE

    It was an Hour before Christmas

    When death came to my door

    It was an Hour of life

    That I live life long

    It was an Hour of reflection

    That showed me what I've been

    It was an Hour of sorrow

    For I've seen all I did

    It was an Hour of repentance

    For I had an Hour to live

    It was an Hour of redemption

    For I pray to God to forgive

    It was an Hour of my Life

    No longer could I live

    It was an Hour when I was Born

    That death brought me to Heaven

    It was an hour




    When I passed beyond the door

    Eternity is open now, what do I do?

    Follow that Spirit who said I am you

    Now !
    Where am I going?
    Only where I was before.

    A Poeatreeman

    One Hour to make the most of Life
    One Hour to mark a place in Heaven

    Dedicated to Rose Prieto
    Mark the Time
    For it is not Long..

    ~*?*Ernesto Cortazar - Silent Night?*~*(Beautiful Christmas Instrumental)(HD Video)
    JESUS IS ALWAYS WELCOME IN
    TO TALK WITH ME OR TAKE ME IN
    HEAVEN I HOPE IS MY INN.

    MY WISH TO YOU, WE ALL FIND PEACE
    MY GIFT TO YOU, IS THE WORDS WE SHARE
    I WROTE IT IN A POEM, TO LET YOU KNOW
    I CARE.


    A POEATREEMAN'S THANKS

    I speak with my words
    For I have not much time
    To say them

    I speak from the Heart
    For this is where
    My words come from

    I Thank God
    For He allowed me
    To say them
    I Thank You
    For listening

    My words
    May not find a place
    in you
    Yet my thoughts,
    Have entered in

    If you find
    one little care
    My Heart
    Will have come in

    If you feel a tear
    you will know
    God is near

    If I touched
    Your Heart
    You will know
    Love was there

    If you read my words
    you will know
    I am there

    Peace comes
    not by War,
    but a Heart
    Close to God

    It is not easy
    going the right way
    I have tried the other,
    Found
    I was going no where

    The day is longer
    When you have no direction

    It is not any shorter
    When you are trying
    To find the right way

    I know where I am Today
    and hope
    To be Tomorrow

    I cannot prove God,
    I am not even sure
    I am good

    Yet this is no reason
    not to try
    It is better to try
    Let God decide
    Whose is good

    Those who believe
    He is not
    There is a chance
    you will believe

    For if He
    is not Here
    believe
    you are not too.

    A Poeatreeman

    It is not with Computer or Pen I Write
    It is Heart and Tears, that Write the Words
    The Ink is My Soul The Scroll My Life
    For the Words Written, is each Day of Life
    Open Your Heart and All Can Come in
    You Have One Time To Take it All in

    God
    is my companion

    Loneliness
    is my company

    Sorrow
    is my tears

    Care
    is my heart

    Hope
    is my way
    to dream

    Time
    is my hour,
    all came to me

    Soul
    is my being,
    looking to see

    Darkness
    is pity
    trying
    to cover me

    God
    was there
    to let me know

    I am here
    to write these words

    Knowing
    I am loved by He.

    THE SHADE OF TWO FRIENDS

    Two Eyes

    To See,

    One Soul,

    One Heart .


    One Light

    One Dark.


    Two Loves

    Can be,

    No Shade Apart.


    Two Friends,

    Can See,

    Each Others

    Heart.


    Not one is Light,

    ROOTS

    If I keep my Roots
    Right in the Earth

    I'll know my birth
    From where I came

    How
    I grow up to the sky

    Branching out
    To touch life

    What I am
    is where I came

    To take myself
    From where I've been

    To place myself
    above all things

    Is to lose myself
    and all that is

    I must grow
    From where I came

    Go through life
    Knowing what I am

    How I grow
    Be it tall or short

    Or reach heights
    I can not climb

    Is not a measure
    of what I am

    To keep my Roots
    From which I came

    My strength
    will be which I made

    My weakness
    not to see myself

    For which my Roots
    Have sown themselves.

    TRIBUTE TO ROSA PARK GOD I AM FREE: Date of death: October 24, 2005
    [CHAINS]

    TRIBUTE TO ROSA PARK GOD I AM FREE



    THE SPIRIT OF FREEDOM

    I Once
    Stood Proud
    On The Steps
    Of Freedom.

    While
    The Flag
    Was Being Raised

    I Heard
    The Anthem
    Being Played

    As I Stood
    Upon The Steps

    I
    Hoped
    All Country's

    Would
    Be Free

    The Goal I Want,
    Is not For Me

    All Who Long
    To Be Free

    The Banner
    I Hold
    Is Earth's Own Soul

    For
    We Are One
    Who Breathe Free

    Let
    The World
    Breathe With Me

    Then
    We Can
    All Breathe Free.

    Dedicated To Freedom

    All Who Seek,
    The Golden Wings

    To Soar
    Through Heaven,
    Upon The Wind.

    Let
    No Shackles
    Be Imposed

    Then
    My Bonds
    Will Be
    Not Broken

    I
    Can Set
    Freedom High

    Where
    It Will Take
    To The Sky

    Heaven!
    Is Open
    For The Ride

    I
    Can Fly
    Free And High

    Bound
    By Heaven's
    Openness

    Feeling
    Free
    For
    My Spirit's High

    Soaring
    Upwards
    Through The Stars

    Bound
    By Heaven's
    Open Sky.

    A Poeatreeman

    It Is Not
    The Steps
    To Bronze

    Or The Steps
    To Silver

    Not
    Even Gold

    It Is The Steps
    To The Soul

    That Cries
    For Freedom

    Let
    My Spirit
    Not Be Chained

    I Will Fly
    Upon The Clouds

    Free
    As God
    Would Have Me Now.

    WHERE IS THE FLAG?

    Where was the Flag

    When people were in slavery?


    Where was the Flag

    When they held them in chains?


    Where was the Flag

    When they cried for Freedom?


    Where was the Flag,

    When they died for it all?



    Where is the Flag

    Wrapping them in sorrow?


    Where is the Flag

    Waving them off to war?


    Where is the Flag

    Who gives Freedom?



    Where are the people

    Whom serve the cause?


    Where are the people

    Who honor it all?


    Where is God

    Who Flies above all?

    A Poeatreeman

    Wrong does not change ,
    because it's past
    If people, have no respect
    It is a cloth ,
    blowing against the wind.
    A SAD STATE OF HISTORY
    TRUTH HAS SAID IT SO.

    DEDICATED TO :Nick Vujicic SOMETHING MORE

    NEVER FINISH

    Never finish never ending

    This quest to keep on going

    Through the years and the days

    Past beyond and I keep going

    Towards eternity never ending

    Searching time to find the start

    Ending up to find I am beginning

    Never ending is my start

    Never finishing is my ending

    Always ending where I began

    Always starting with an ending

    Never finishing even beyond....

    A Poeatreeman

    Time is a second,
    eternity an hour
    God is the start
    that leads to a beginning
    Eternity is an ending
    that can end with God
    Time is a second
    when God gave me heart.

    TO
    Nick Vujicic
    MY ONLY END
    HOPE NOT TRAVELED
    MY ONLY PRAYER
    FAITH ;
    WILL TAKES ME THERE.
    SOMETHING MORE
    IS HEAVEN'S DOOR

    A WALK WITH DEATH

    I walk
    with Death
    Each
    day of Life

    Knowing
    it will be

    Yet
    I go on living

    For Death
    is not the end
    The loss
    would not
    be living

    Life
    has its part
    Death does too

    God
    opened
    the door,
    brought Me
    on through

    Until it closes
    I will
    walk with Him

    For
    God
    gave Me
    this moment
    To walk with Him

    For
    when
    the door closes
    I will
    be with Him again.

    A THOUGHT!

    It is not the hour
    I will end

    it is the end
    I left
    at the beginning

    For
    My start
    was the end

    My
    end
    was only beginning

    A Poeatreeman

    The Dark Side
    of Life
    is not Death

    It is All The Shadows
    You Cast On Life

    All The Wrongs
    You Never Made Right.

    A Poet's Note

    If I follow Myself
    The
    end will be in site

    For
    how far will I go
    Before
    the road ends?

    MY BEST HOPE IS;
    TO KEEP THE FAITH;
    FOR IN THE END;
    HEAVEN'S GATE .

    "A PRAYER FOR PEACE"
    in your Presentation of The Nobel Peace Prize
    Nations unto themselves, will find there own Destruction
    For without God! Peace will never be.

    A Poeatreeman
    My Greatest Prize is Heart
    When I Share it with The World



    "A PRAYER FOR PEACE"
    Oh Lord!
    Let Peace be not a dream
    Let it come to us all
    That we may fight no more
    Let us share this World with love
    That tears will be the only one to fall
    Let us lift our spirits high
    That we may reach Heaven's Eyes
    Look Upon Your Face with Love.

    LOVES
    PIGGY BANK
    MUST BE EMPTY.

    TO BE FULL
    EACH DAY
    YOU GIVE IT.

    YOU WILL
    RECEIVE MORE.
    WHEN LOVE
    IS NOT BANKED
    AWAY.
    YOU MUST GIVE IT
    TO HAVE IT
    THEN YOU CAN COUNT
    YOUR LOVE TODAY.

    DON'T
    BREAK MY HEART
    IT WILL BE EMPTY
    FOR SURE.

    PUT IT TOGETHER
    WHEN IT'S
