Holding on to Those I Cherish

By Victoria Noreen

Although love in uncontrollable, just experiencing it is enough. It’s the best feeling in the world, even the worse at times, but it’s still love. Whether love is in your family or with a special someone, everybody needs a little love. We cannot change love only enjoy it. Being loved is unconditional and a philosophy I live by. Everybody needs a little loving.

Time sure goes by fast,
Never looked back, external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTjoaLvW4wW9mrk_mw56xpUpPyjkGqtgp-cFb69AW1vWDaBUFBU
Wondering why we bother with love, if it never lasts,
A place in the clouds
Open my eyes, yeah; it was only just a dream.
Afraid of fallin'
But that’s just how the story unfolds.

What would you wish for if you had one chance?
We've got nothing figured out,
It's not always rainbows and butterflies.
Why oh why must it be this way?
Then, you took me by surprise.

Here comes the sun external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTvQBr4AgIzVpoQkxN_0mU6NwL5Llo5naVqz0oGVl4B2lR_upO7
Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got.
You can come anytime you want.
I got places to go.
I see my vision very clear,
You got me runnin’ baby
So I travel back, down that road. external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQtTTV0nUulb3RNMCfYK4kcHu79SxMVB2ihx3GG1aqJcAGcxj5a
Cause I do know if I take that chance just where it is gonna lead.

Where there are friends, there is wealth.
The smiles returning to the faces
Know all the things that make you who you are.
I’m not the average girl.
I learned to love,
And he will be loved.
Baby, isn’t that the way that love’s supposed to be? external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQn9d8J1FcRA8TuBLEu-bBTn_d8f3fwbW4J8kCNqVxp6LbEPCP6MQ

All of us took the same chance.
Hope laid upon hope,
I want more.
People think I'm a silly fool
We’re spinning with the stars above.
Deep in my heart
Your bringing out the Elvis in me.

I don't mind spending everyday,

It’s all right.
Time is precious
While we wait head in hands external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTbplkPRpOHwqGkkDEvZm3EE2oBvGQnfijjHbwgK56OjmlFZcfH
In prayer
Thankful he's alive

He was always there to help her.
Out on my corner in the pouring rain.
She rushes out to hold him,
And begs him to catch her every time.
Never leave me alone. external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQYgqWORi9ML206g3EkDBJ22dV6nDi8E0koWFoIsv97um-Y0mHUcw
You are the best thing that's ever been mine.
You saw me start to believe for the first time,
Loving you is cherry pie.
You’re my kinda lover. external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRa9WY0NoVBvo8XkstP2R0GBJgMGUgIcc6mxNcsxwj-rfjdvCp_

To find a dream and a life of their own.
A young girl’s dream no longer hollow.
The whole world just fades away
