Closer to you
Looking back now I still can recall
the simple joys each day would bring
Soft April snow, a warm summer breeze
Your smile, your laugh ter, the songs we'd sing

Looking through your eyes I learned how to see
A new world full of possibilities
and I will always be
thankful for all that you've given me

No matter how near, how far apart
I know that you will see me through
Search the feelings deep in my heart
They will bring me much closer to you

Even thou gh sometimes we may drift apart
I know I'll see you once again at the road's end
Though we fuss and fight there will always be
These feelings that bind me to you

I don't know what the future may bring
The sky may turn dark and the rain may fall
But don't you know I'm here for you
Through thick and thin I'll always be your friend

When I'm feeling down I just close my eyes
And I feel you standing right here beside me
Thank you for the strength that you're giving me
It's the hope, the hope that guides me

No matter how near, how far apart
I'll always be there, I will see you through
Search for the feelings deep in my heart
They will bring me much closer to you


①If a Tree Could Talk

If a tree could talk,
what would it say?
"Don't chop me down, just walk away."

If a river could talk,
what would it say?
"Don't dump your trash, throw it away."

If animals could talk,
what would it say?
"Help us to live, we wish to stay."

If the earth could talk,
what would it say?
"Make every day Earth Day!"

②Let's Take Care of the Earth

The desert, the desert is home to a snake.
Let's take care of the desert.

The forest, the forest is home to a bear.
Let's take care of the forest.

The ocean, the ocean is home to a whale.
Let's take care of the ocean.

The mountain, the mountain is home to a goat.
Let's take care of the mountain.

The earth, the earth is home to us all.
Let's take care of the earth!!







The day the Earth moved,
and a nation's east coast
shifted by 2.4 meters

It was Japanese worst recorded earthquake,
yet its impact has been less destructive
than similar natural disasters in the Pacific Rim


A Letter from Yesterday

Allie untied the packet and found the first letter Noah had written her.
She began to open it, then stopped because she could imagine what was in it.
Something simple, no doubt---things he'd done, memories of the summer,
perhaps some questions. After all, he probably expected an answer from her.
Instead she reached for the last letter he had wr itten, the one on the bottom of the stack.
The good bye letter.

My dearest Allie,

I don't know what to say anymore except that I couldn't sleep last night because I knew
that it is over between us. It is a different feeling for me, one that I never expected,
but looking back, I suppose it couldn't have ended another way.
You and I were different. We came from different worlds, and yet you were the one
who taught me the value of love. You showed me what it was like to care for another
and I am a better man because of it.

I am not bitter because of what has happened. On the contrary, I am secure in knowing
that what we had was real, and I am happy we were able to come together for even a
short period of time. And if, in some distant place in the future, we see each other in our
new lives. I will smile at you with joy, and remember how we spent a summer beneath the trees,
leaning from each other and growing in love. And maybe, for a brief moment, you'll feel
it too, and you'll smile back, and savor the memories we will always share together.
I love you, Allie.
