Be all That You Can. Ode for Living

Audrey's passion for connecting with nature is magnified in her articles about mother earth."Going to nature is like going home."

I will be all that I can...

I will be all that I can...

I Will Sing While I Can

I will be all that I can be

Going forward with certainty

And if I’m given a lime

I’ll take one step at a time

I will sing while I can.


I will make my own music

I will dance to the sound

I’ll compose my own melody

I don’t care who’s around

I will sing while I can.

Music is my Passion

sing-while-you-can


Forever young, I 'll not act my age

When tomorrow comes, I will turn a new page

I will dangle my toes at the waters edge

And laugh when I want, that is my pledge

I will sing while I can.


I refuse to be pressured to someone’s belief

And I know at times, I’m a comic relief

I am a free spirit, I clear my own path

A positive woman, perhaps a bit daft

I will sing while I can.

I Miss my Little Shih Tzu

Clancey had quite the personality. I miss him and his cute little ways.

Clancey had quite the personality. I miss him and his cute little ways.

And as for my Clancey, he'll always rule

He gets what he wants, he's nobody's fool

Neglected from birth he had a bad start

I brought him home and gave him my heart

He sings while he can.


I’ll be all that I can with each passing day

And nothing, no nothing will get in my way

My wings spreading wide, they lift me up high

I’m doing my best with each breath I sigh

I’ll sing while I can.


I will give thanks with each passing day

For all good things that come my way

For loving children loyal and giving

Sharing their life to make mine worth living

And we sing while we can.

I will rise in the morning and live for that day

No sorrow or troubles to get in my way

With a prayer in my heart I'll fill someone's need

And look for a way to do a good deed

I'll sing while I can.

Through Joy and Through Sorrow, I Still Sing

Singing keeps me centered and frees my spirit

Singing keeps me centered and frees my spirit

I will sing while I can before I pass on

I will gather my troubles and make them a song

I will live serving others in all that I do

As Shakespeare once said

“To thine own self be true”

I will sing while I can.


Note ~ My beloved and precious pet, Clancey passed on March 20, 2012. He filled my life for 12 years with unconditional love.

“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.”

― Theodore Roosevelt
