I Am

I Am

I am a wonderful person
I wander around to help people
I hear people laughing and screaming
I see lots of different things
I want to be a millionaire and give homeless people a home

I am a wonderful person
I pretend to be happy but I'm not
I feel the future for me
I touch the sky
I worry myself sometimes
I don't cry

I am a wonderful person
I understand people
I say to people when they cry
"Don't cry, think of all the others you'll make happy"
I dream about happiness
I try to be happy
I am a wonderful person

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Who am I?
Am I an artist-
One that can draw anything?
Am I a player-
One who especially likes basketball?
Am I a shy-
Someone who hates talking in front of people?
Or am I a whole person to you?

Do you know that I once shook the hand of a President
And got a signature from his wife?
Do you know that I drove my Dad's car
When I was four years old?
Do you know that I want to be a traveller?
So I can wander around the world and take pictures?
I know that I will never get my brother to stop bothering me.

I know that my favorite station on the radio is Z 95.7.
I know that in some point of my life
I will have a good time with my own family.
I know that I am proud to be WHO I AM.

What To Do On A Mountain Top

What To Do On A Mountain Top

Take yourself to a mountain top
Wind cooled and sun warmed and very high
Watch seagulls and think how it feels to fly
Look over the land with a mountain's eye
Set your thoughts free to drift, to roam
Be comfortable; feel right at home,
and help yourself to some really fresh sky…

Angels Tears

Angels Tears

Do you see the angels looking down at your life?
They're crying because you took your own life
How could you take your life
The angels bow their heads and take their life

Angels in the corner of her eye
Wishing the world around her would die
Leaving the future, leaving the past
Making the pain and the hurt last.

Is there any hope for her tortured heart
For the beaten and torn apart?
Her angel watches her tears
Living deep inside her fears
Creating the love she forgot
Filling in the empty spot
Runaway from the hurt
Throw yourself in the dirt.

Her angel is crying
And her hurt is dying
Her hopes of the future has been blow away.

Now she is praying for the day-
Her angels will protect her from harm
Wrap her in their arms
Her angels love her
But an angel's tears can last forever.

The angels are looking down at your life
They saved you from taking your life
You couldn't take your life
Look real close...you've got a beautiful life!

Plant a tree for NMSG

Purchase a tree to dedicate to anyone with NM and help us raise funds for our next convention.

Planting a tree is a great way to mark an occasion or to remember a loved one. I am offering people the opportunity to plant a tree in celebration of a family member or friend with nemaline myopathy and at the same time raise funds for the Nemaline Myopathy Support Group.
