A true friend

I'm not myself when you're around
You lift my feet up off the ground
You help me spread my wings to fly
Set my goals within the sky
I really don't know what to say
I'm becoming a new person each new day
It's like you're some kind of glue
I feel like I'm sick attracted to you
I don't know where this is going
I wonder if I'd be happy knowing
You've brought my life a new light
Each time we talk my smile is bright
Being your friend is a blessin'
Teaching me many a lesson
Helping me come out of my shell
Feeling like you already know me too well
Since we've been brought together
My life has surely gotten better
I feel like I can tell you anything
I find the joy you always bring
You've been a treasured friend to me
A better friend than I deserve you to be
I hope to be the same to you
For you deserve a good friend too
In this crazy life we live
We can take,  but we should give
A comforting hug,  or a friendly smile
A treasured moment that lasts awhile
I'm thankful for the friend I have in you
Without your kindness what would I do?
It hasn't been long that we've been friends
I hope it's something that never ends
You are you,  and I am me
A friend like you,  I hope to be
Who finds the good in all you know
Lifting up friends to help them grow
Your example is a shining one
Like the brightness of the sun
You're my friend and I'm glad that's true
I hope I'm a better friend because of you

A tiny seed

A tiny seed
Becomes a weed, flower, or tree
A tiny seed
Grows inside of me
I don't know what will blossom
I don't know what will bloom
The seed of faith is awesome
It will grow if given room
The seed grows differently
For you,  than for me
You may have a strong oak tree
I may only have a daisy
Does that mean your faith is stronger?
Or that mine is no longer?
That's the thing about faith
You can't really judge it's place
We're all God's creations
The big and the small
From the tiny daisy
To the oak tree so tall
Some faith may fill an ocean
Some faith may fill a pond
What matters is devotion
To the power from beyond
Our faith is always changing
When watered it will grow
The size of a tree or daisy
Only heavenly Father knows
My faith may seem hidden
Or buried down inside
It doesn't mean I've given
Into foolish pride
Maybe it's just mine
Or shadowed by design
I know I have great faith
I know that you do too
Please don't judge my faith
I promise i won't judge you.

I don't know what is real

I don't know what to think. 
I don't know what to feel. 
I don't know what is me,
I don't know what is real. 
Am I just imagining, 
These thoughts within my heart. 
Is it only make believe? 
It's tearing me apart. 
I really can't explain it. 
It really makes no sense. 
It's like I don't deserve it,
But it's giving me such happiness. 
I really wish I knew. 
Each moment of each day. 
I wonder if you feel it too?
I don't know what to say. 
What's happening to me? 
These feelings are so new.
Will you help me see?
If you feel it too? 
Because I don't know what you think
And I don't know what you feel. 
I don't know what is you, 
And I don't know what is real?
