i pray for Lori Lynn...by james robert

i pray that He'll heal you
as good as new
and quickly and gently
is my prayer too

i pray that your days
are not too much to bear
and you never forget
many others do care

i pray that He'll keep you
far away from the pain
and allow you to dance
in a late summer's rain

i pray that your nights
are quiet and fast
and that this will soon
be all in the past

i pray that He'll guide you
through all the rough seas
and the ship, Lori Lynn
will soon sail with ease

Independence Day...by james robert

Red, white and blue is everywhere,
as the sounds of freedom fill the air.
Many and varied olfactory thrills,
from fireworks to the celebrants' grills.

A most special day in America's year,
held by many to be most dear.
Another chapter in this great story,
as again is raised our grand Old Glory.

Freedom's challenges have always been great,
and certainly gaining momentum of late.
Each generation must join freedom's fight,
as Her enemies try to make wrong seem right.

Thanks to those who have fought the good fight;
especially those now gone from our sight.
Thanks to all who have paved the way,
and given us reason to celebrate this day.

Freedom's challenges may have to wait,
for today as a country we celebrate.
We'll take a break from our usual grinds,
as freedom's thoughts occupy our minds.

If this is to remain the home of the brave,
then hold your ground, 'tho they rant and rave.
If this is to continue as the land of the free,
then it's up to you and it's up to me!
