You Are My All

When on life’s seas I’m tempest tossed,
And my hopeful smile is all but lost,
When I need to survive at any cost,
You are my anchor.

My life is filled with simple pleasures,
My loved ones’ smiles I count as treasures,
When kisses are how life is measured,
You are the standard.

As time soars on and birthdays fly,
My hair is graying,  I don’t care why,
My mind is sharp, but not my eyes,
You are my youth.

Love is patient, love is kind,
And to the lucky, love is blind,
But when it comes to love that binds,
You are my love.

Why You

I choose you,because of all the love you give me. 
You are my sun when i'm cold. 
You are my air when I can't breathe. 
You are the one I share my dreams with. 
You are the one I can always count on. 
Through good times and bad times. 
You're the one and only thing that makes me happy when i'm sad. 
Hold me tight,like you do your pillow at night. 
Why did you take so long to come into my life. 
I always hoped and prayed that there would come a day. 
When I would find that special love,then you came my way. 
To be held by your loving enbrace,that's all i'll ever need. 
I do not hunger,I do not fear when you are near. 
From that day to now,I finally realized how good life can be. 
Because you care,but most of all because you love me. 
I pray you understand and know these words I have said to you are true. 
Because you are my life and one day i'll make you my wife. 
That's why I choose you,To be the one I love,respect and honor.

This pledge that l,Ntando, make today serves

our relationship for personal
or egotistical
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

The Wedding

Wedding Night in Raqqa



Cyclonic violet vision


Etheral and immortal


She swirls her sand baked torso.


Evoking the initial collision of primordial seed,


Swathed in gossamer purple veils,


Writhing to the stomping and clapping


Of jeweled ankles


And henna stained hands.


The tribes have united for my wedding to their son.


I ,foreign and naive, swoon to the power


Of ancient rhythm and verse,


Ripe, fertile gestures,


Pregnant with  throbbing pulses


And scattered beats of flailing arms,


Bleating tongues, spinning robes.


A cacophony of incessant chant rose from the dancing women,


Growning louder, feverish in their pleasure


And the nearness of release.


I join in the dancing.


They swath me in voiles and lead me to the center


I dance, and I succumb to my wedding night in Raqqa.

The Lovers Dance

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.

They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.

And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.

Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.

But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.

The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.

So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.

They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.

So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.

Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.

So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.

What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?

What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.

What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.

For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.

We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.

But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.

So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.

So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.

Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.

For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?

For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three

If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.

Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.

We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If  not there for each other then where is the hope?

You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.

So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.

By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.

For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.

He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.

So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.

They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.

You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.

So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

What Love is

Love is a secret . . . Keep it
Love is a rose . . . Grow with it
Love is a mystery . . . Unfold it
Love is an adventure . . . Chance it
Love is beauty . . . Pamper it
Love is a song . . . Sing it
Love is a struggle . . . Deal with it
Love is sorrowful . . . Mourn with it
Love is a book . . . Renew it
Love is a fire inside . . . Never let it die

Prince Charming *YEAH RIGHT*

When I was a just little girl
Daddy told me a tale
About how I’d find my Prince
Then I’d wear a wedding veil

He said...

Your Prince will be brave and strong
He will keep safe you from harm
He’ll always stand right by your side
Proud to have you on his arm

He will share with you his riches
He’ll Comfort you at night
He’ll wipe away your falling tears
And when it’s dark, he’ll be your light

He will be honest and faithful
On him I could depend
For he would be the man
With whom my life I’d spend

I finally thought I met my Prince
Our wedding bells did chime
It didn’t take very long
To realize I married slime

Strong and Brave?

Late one night while sleeping
I heard a crash, “what was that?”
He quickly shoved me out of bed
“Don’t forget the baseball bat”

Stand beside me?

Nightly we would take a walk
But in his steps I would tread
For this loving Prince of mine
Was always many blocks ahead

Share his riches?

This always makes me laugh
He promised a new car I would get
But when we left the dealership
He drove off in his new Corvette

Honest and faithful?

How do I love thee?
Let me count the lies
Since when does faithful mean
Playing between another’s thighs

Daddy you said he’d wipe my tears
But that was just a lie
You see it was this loving Prince
That always made me cry

I don’t believe in fairy tales
Or that dreams will come true
I’ve only ever met one Prince
Daddy, that Prince was you!

A Kis

A Kis



 Do eye need a kis. Eye need a girl to kis. Eye have a girl that eye can kis. 
Eye have kis her in the rain. Eye have kis her in mye heart. Eye have kis her in 
mye start of every day for years of love. Eye have only to the kis to go to read more 
into kis to find the place she dwells in this old mortal frame of yearning 
dwelling place. The kis is purple bliss of alarm blazing love waking me from 
death like a Snow White Charmed young man a captive smith to Pocahontas 
fame. A dandelion flower lost in the caverns of the depths Ianthe drowning mee 
in sea ward tufts of left and right bouts of beating on the air to keep from sliding 
to the depths of drowning in her arms of love. A leap at faith a death reprieved 
from Grounded Grave a leaping portent making waves of Gragon wings. An 
attitude of love refrained in every tuft of wind again the sound of love the beating 
of the water on the roof of tin the sound of kis inside the wind and rain. A younger 
man and woman would have hardware in the way the nose and yes the nose gay 
and the corners of the vampyrific fangs. The center of the tongue is one the belly 
button too. The snooker table has a cue it’s called the ball extender bridge it's a 
cheater it’s made to let the basest man to reach her in the wind. There is so 
many problems with people the gas is oughta sight at the pumps this country is 
no longer prominent but a third world country going south. The end of time has 
come and arrived the ruthless and worthless rule in the name of god money and 
time. Take a number wait in line what’s your name please fill this out and wait. 
The number of his namme. Have you got a credit card or payment of any kind iff 
you can give me seven dollars for an office visit eye will help you the doctor is inn. 
The man was lighting a candle in front of the computer and the lieberrian asked 
him what do you think you are doing he said eye cannot see the screen. There is 
not very many rich people in all those cars on the highway whizzing by the most of 
them is middle class or less the plastic hose on the back seat is a siphon they 
use it to get gas. Eye had too many problems at home growing up to ever be a 
father. The age factor plus the drug indicator keeps me from trying to further my 
benefactor with fodder or with mudder. The morality of this hurried fable of 
dividing documents is this a kis.

The Union

Theres a reason why you are together,my dears
Possibly brought to one another by chemistry
I hope it was pure devoted love that brought you here
Made you want to spend the rest of your years
Your better half
The better part of you
The missing piece
The one who makes you, the complete you
An angel
A gift from heaven above
Your very best friend,
The one that shows you so much love
Two kindred spirits drawn together from past lives
Some may call it fate, my dears 
But as for my love and me
I call it a miracle brought on by destiny

Time shall tell---

As later today
tis man came the same
Asking me
If I had the answer for him
He said... he shall still wait

Then he went on
He said.. we will have 
the biggest Wedding ever
I shall wear my Navy Blue Tux

And you may wear..
Tis Beautiful Wedding dress
It will be so grand
We shall invite all people
All over the land...

We will have a Flower girl
Ring barrier...
I want to give you the whole
Not like some men do
just go before a judge..
tis Not the right way to go

I want everyone to see
I want everyone to know
For You are so Beautiful
Far more than I can ever ask
Please Will you marry me???

Take your time...
I shall wait..
I have waited this long
How about a date???

We shall go dancing
Out on the town
I shall wear my Blues
You wear your hair 
Half up and half down

I looked at him..
than I said..
tis strange you say
such things. unto me
for I have not spoken of...
such things.. to you

How did you know
He than said
What do you mean???
I than told him...
What dreams I have had
He than said
Wow... tis be

You and Me?
I than said..
I shall pray..
for God will 
time shall tell

How can I hear you when you’re not here 
How can I feel your kiss and whisper in my ear 
Your arms enfold me when I’m sad

 Loneliness gone forever for you and me

In sickness and health 
 For with you I have all my wealth 
To love and honor all the days of my life 
 This I pledge to you this day as I become your wife

To My Husband

You've always been there for me
Right from the start.
Everything you do
Comes straight from the heart.

When I think of you 
My heart fills with love.
And this feeling my dear
Is what life is made of.

You've given me passion, love,
And total bliss.
And all it took
Was just one kiss.

I knew from the moment 
I first lay eyes on you
That a life without you in it 
Would just never do.

I am honored that you chose me
To be your wedded wife,
And by your side I'll stay 
For the rest of my life.

  I Love You

Empty Church

The day the earth stood still, 
bells suspended in the tower, 
chimes froze in vacant space, 
nullified the hour. 
Her veil like spider web, 
stiff with Winter frost, 
hung upon the mannequin head, 
poignant and lost. 
His buttonhole carnation, 
a bullet wound lapel, 
blood red with cautious dying, 
in the dresser fell. 
And all the best laid plans 
unravel seam by seam, 
faint echoes in an empty church, 
never more to dream.

Wedded Bliss

The deed has been done.
Our new life has begun.
Single life won't be missed.
I'm filled with wedded bliss.

A wondrous new beginning.
Inside my heart is singing.
I'm never looking back.
You've made my soul relax.

Each new day we grow together.
Everyday has sunny weather.
I've never known love as pure as this.
I feel drunk and full of wedded bliss.

With you, I have no reason to doubt.
You make me whole, inside and out.
Facing the future, together we stand.
Walking life's roads, hand in hand.

You are where I belong
You are the melody I feel in every song 
It seems as if I have been waiting a lifetime for love
Tell me is that what you’ve been thinking of
In my past relationships I use to rebel
When I see you I know you are my angel
Sent from the brightest of stars
Trust me I know who you are
That was differently heaven sent
So the love I have for you please don’t resent
Remember you filled my empty heart
When it was torn apart
You made my life whole
I love you from the depths of my soul
You are the part that completes my day
You are the words that I don’t say
You are the only one I adore
I could ask for nothing more
You gave my life that needed spark
When I am lost in the dark
You are my shinning light
Without you in my life it doesn’t feel right
When your lips touch mine there is a sweetness I’ve never known
I know I am where I belong, in your heart now that is home

"The best way to love is to love like you have never been hurt."

This Aint Real

Your face, 
Made a fake smile, (you said)
I love you,
I need you,
I want you just for a while,
You told me,
That I made you smile,
All the things you said to me,
Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus: 2x
What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,
That I feel,

I'm broken in emotion,
I'm broken in love, (you said)
I need you,
I want you
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus 2x
How can we love,
When there's always someone else,
How can we make up,
When you only love me for yourself,

verse #3:
You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

For Always

Every moment I can't see your face;
These are the days and nights when I miss you.
I ask that you stay for always,
On sunny days and when it rains too.

If I speak to another pretty dame,
She's not the flame inside that grows.
In my heart you will remain;
This one thing I'd like you to know.

One Day

As I sip on aged Cognac
swirling in circular sadness,
contained within cup made
of broken stained glass memories,
I witness.

Witnessing Cloud 9’s silhouette
surround this glued enigma.

Lionel Ritchie was the rock for this moment’s bliss.

“Truly in love,

Emanating across cathedral uncertainty,
breaking its glass.

This was a celebration of priceless Silver.
A currency only earned by the Philanthropists of Love.

Creating justifiable fantasies
with attainable dreams.

It was amor, maintained.

While I sip on Cognac’s remnants,
mixed with retina’s loneliness,
with smile craving soul-pack solution,
I exhale.

In “Deep Sigh” Symphony: No. 9.

With my ventricle chambers
kissing subconscious on forehead,
in preparation for dream come true.

Because one day,
that will

Schooldays Sweethearts

Schooldays sweethearts, they grew through their teens Enjoying life together living their young scenes He knew there would be a day to complete their task He went down on one knee, he'd a question to ask My darling Elaine will you please marry me I want to be with you for all eternity Their day arrives inside the church he awaits A silver Rolls Royce arrives at the gates Out steps a lassie in splendid bridal gown Sparkling in white with her diamond tiara crown The music plays as she walks down the aisle So gorgeous and radiant as we await her smile She lifts her veil as she faces her husband to be As we await their vows for the whole church to see The words we have waited for are beautifully said I do to each other as now they are wed The reception awaits and the cutting off the cake As they share a kiss remembering their first date

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Mommas Loving Hand On CD

Momma knows her girl ain't crazy,
Still hearing those wedding vows,
It never ceases to amaze me,
What she's going through even now,
While cryingly she goes on...sharing mommas loving hand,

She's cried a month of Sundays,
Felt the slamming door,
Hoping maybe someday,
Love is evermore,
In the rising and setting suns...of having a good man,

She's been tried by the Devil,
Felt the upperhand,
Been so dissheveled,
Trying to understand,
Now her life must go on...without that wedding band,

She's cried a month of Sundays,
For the man she knew before,
Hoping maybe someway,
Love is evermore,
Now her life must go on making new plans.

She's been walked on a bit,
And still has those crying fits,
O-O-O-O-Oh! Lord!
Even I can read her lips,
Now an ex-wife must be strong, trying to understand,
How her life must go on, without that wedding band,
She has mommas loving hand.

On CD from Nashville...502-290-7524  in no ans.. leave message..

She's been walked on a bit,
And still has those crying fits,
O-O-O-O-Oh! Lord!
Even I can read her lips!
How an ex-wife must be strong, trying to understand,
How her life must go on, without that wedding band,
She has mommas loving hand.

I wrote this when my sister was going through her divorce.  I have this one on a CD.

4 Jon On Our 22nd Wedding Anniversary

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes
    like spring-time rain

Your tears smell
    like sweet lemon flower petals

Your voice looks

Your heart sounds
    like exquisite violin and harp concertos

And your eyes!

Your eyes feel
    like early autumn sunset’s amber-gold lengthening glow

Oh, my love, your love

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU?

What all hear various definitions
 of what marriage means.
Not realizing the consequences
 this often brings!

There’s often a lack of commitment and faithfulness.
Many still looking for a true source of happiness!

This institution, that God set up as a husband and wife.
Needs to have his spirit,
 to guide our life!

It’s no wonder why, there’s many falling apart!
It’s causing heartache and many broken hearts!

No court in the land can wash away sin’s dark stain.
When adultery happens, things aren’t the same!

May we all seek to ask God
 to strengthen our home!
He’s there to help us!
 When we feel all alone!

We need the blood of Jesus to daily cleanse us!
He wants to do this!  Because he loves us!

Jesus remains committed, faithful and strong!
His word will teach us what’s right and wrong!

May we seek HIS guidance and council!
You’ll find, that he is always most helpful!

Please Jesus… Heal the broken families
 across this nation!
For only you can provide
 a much needed foundation!

A Magnificent Moment

A five tiered chocolate cake with stars and fontain
cascading rose petals and bottles of champagne
her princess lined gown laced with a metallic accent
embellished with satin rhinestones much to her content

Heavenly white bows at the end every pew,
such breathtaking moment from a spectacular ocean view
A twenty foot high ceiling with crystal chandeliers
Soft sensual music whispers in the air

She took her grand march down the petal marked aisle
At the end of the runner her husband with a smile
Subdued by her beauty the room went still
A fairytale wedding she was about to fulfill

Upon her finger he place a gorgeous ring,
and vowed his love for her as never-ending
Elated inside as tears lined her eyes
Deep in her stomach were butterflies

A union made between a husband and wife
An everlasting promise to a happy life
Along the ground was a silky white trail
Her piercing green eyes he slowly unveiled

Upon her lips he placed a kiss
A moment filled with beauty and bliss
The wedding part began to swoon
A joyful bond in the month of June

The Wedding Gown

The wedding Gown

She stepped boldly,
stoically erect
to the strains
of the wedding march,
radiant in the resplendent
beauty of her gown 
and poetic demeanor.
The long silken train, the work
of tens of thousands of weavers
harvesting in the trees of Changsha
to highlight the sanctity of the moment
and the purity of body as she spoke, “I do”. 

The daughter

She lay sleeping gently
doing the little sucking moves
which every new babe makes
with her tiny lips.
Her once wrinkled face 
now smooth with traces of
resemblance to her mother. 
Unafraid on his arm
her eyes reflecting 
from the white silken train
made from a wedding gown
already hallowed by promises kept.
She looked up and smiled
as the water placed on her head
promised things of which she knew nothing.  

The marriage

She stood in the vestibule
waiting for the crescendo 
to signal her entrance.
Trembling slightly from anticipation
she fidgeted with the train of her long white gown.
That same white gown from Hunan province,
a tad shorter now to accommodate 
so long ago, her christening.
She touched it lovingly, 
knowing that tomorrow, 
she would carry another to feel 
its texture, smooth as baby’s breath.  

The grand daughter

She was above the pulpit of the church.
From some place of which she did not know,
she peered down upon a small casket not open.
Within which she knew her earthly flesh
lay draped in silk from Changsha. 
She somehow sensed the family bond
and the import of having a constant to lean on.
Lying upon the same soft weave her mother felt,
the generations entwined helplessly impressed into its folds,
a grandmother, a mother, and yet another babe into this life line. 
Surely the expectations of man, do often go astray,
and nothing lasts but the silk from Changsha.

The Nameless - for South Africans of all colours who fought for freedom

The Nameless

Slipping through the sieve of history,

the nameless rest.

Not for the nameless are roads renamed, nor monuments built.

Not for the nameless are songs sung, nor ink spilled.

The nameless rest.

Their silent sacrifice,

quiet ordeal,

muted trauma,

remain interred,

amongst their remains.

The nameless rest.

Not for the nameless are doctorates conferred, nor eulogies recited.

Not for the nameless are honours bestowed, nor homages directed.

The nameless rest.

They rest within us,

they walk with us,

in every step that we tread.

They rest within us,

they walk with us,

for their spirit is not dead.

“Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal”
- inscription at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier WWII in Moscow

Special thanks to my dearest elder sister Tasneem Nobandla Moolla, whose conversations with me about life as a non-white person growing up in pre and post-Apartheid South Africa prompted me to write this dedication to the countless, nameless South Africans of every colour, whose sacrifices and dedication in the struggle against Apartheid tyranny must never be forgotten.

My sister’s middle name ‘Nobandla’ which is an isiXhosa name and means “she who is of the people” was given by her godfather, Nelson Mandela, my father’s ‘best-man who could not be, as Nelson Mandela was unable to-make it to my parent’s wedding as he was in jail at the time in the old Johannesburg Fort. This was the 31st December 1961.

Thank You Lord For My Wonderful Wife


Thank you God for my 
beautiful wife.
And thanks for bringing 
her into my life.

Through every mountain
and every canyon...
She's been my faithful 
friend & companion.

From the time we met years ago...
Words alone cannot express
how I love her so.

I call her "sweetie" and she 
calls me "honey" too.
And I still like to say,
"... I LOVE YOU!"

When I've been wrong 
nd "out of place."
She has a word of wisdom 
and a special grace.

I wouldn't trade her for anything 
this world could offer.
Nothing in this whole world 
could ever "top her."

Thanks to God for this 
gift you've given.
She' s  brought joy 
to my way of livin'!

If not for her...I don't know 
where I would be.
This is why I call her

Thanks for her love, 
and being so very kind.
Special people like her 
are hard to find.

A special present 
sent from God above
My wonderful wife...
I will always love!

' Intimacy In Verse (1) ... '

Intimacy – To Put It Delicately,
Is Closer Than Flesh Can Form
And Stronger Than The Desire
… It Bravely Springs Forth From

Intimacy – Shuts Door
On Separated and Shy
Intimacy Knows Who You Are …
And Doesn’t Need To Ask Why

Intimacy – Is More than A Touch,
Sight, Smell, Taste Or Words Heard
Intimacy – Vanquishes Alone
 Unknown and Scared

Intimacy – Is A Certainty
And So Beautiful To Have and Hold
Intimacy – Is Secrecy Shared
Between Love and In-Love Souls

          … Intimacy …

The Main Matrix

So, if a matrix is a body substance, in which all cells are embedded?
Then can I not spiritually say that the body of Christ is also a matrix?
Well, is it safe to assume or safer to not assume the differences in such?

If I have a World Wide Web with many matrixes, there must be a main.
How does one achieve the main matrix without a conversion of all matrixes?
Each living breathing organism has a matrix, but what supplies this?
Seems how all bodies have cells embedded in a matrix,
Is it not safe to assume that the universe has a matrix?
If so, where is the main universal matrix?
There must be a connection of some sorts,
Nevertheless, what is it and where is it?
Moreover, why has this not been thought of?
If the body is the temple of the Lord,
Then He must have a main matrix.
Matrix is Latin for womb.
So in which womb is this matrix?
Only a female has a womb.
There must be one that is required by none.
Now let us get even more difficult here.
We have a World Wide Web with many matrixes.
What if the World Wide Web is an individual womb?
It obviously has good and evil in its growth.
Could there have been two that fused by one?
Could there have been a conversion of all matrixes.
Or is there only one main matrix being a female?
Let us get back to the body of Christ and His matrix.
Let us even go to your own bodies matrixes.
An enclosure within in which something originates or develops,
This is what lives and breathes inside of you every day, a matrix.
Do we not develop Christ within ourselves, and He our originator?
Is it not safe to assume that we are the body of Christ?
Moreover, that we are of a matrix that has a universal main matrix?

Mrs Hemorrhoid

You messed around 
and married a real 
"pain-in-the butt" man 

known throughout the land 
for ripping
completely deserting 
then leaving 
women hurting

his only claim to fame 
is over reacting 
and lacking class
a self-proclaimed pain in the ass
a crook with line 
and hook to cast 

things will never be the same
trade away your maiden name 
to Mrs. Hemorrhoid 
and wear his name with class.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every
new days kiss

The Marriage

Her, with her white-veiled smile, looking up at me.
Him, with his unlikely carnation. Shifty eyed.
The football-shirted pageboy, 
flanked by two pink princesses,
sulkily kicks an invisible ball

The mum and dad wouldn’t come.
Too young, they said through tearful, pleading eyes.
I pray to god to bless this union,
Though secretly my heart despairs. 
Friends cheer as they briefly kiss

Back down the aisle in the meringue inspired, empire-line dress
To the waiting limosine, 
Back to the waiting council house clothes, 
and the soon-to-be occupied nursery.
To the terraces of silent acceptance.

Five kids and many beatings later, 
before she’s even 30, I’ll see her again in white robes.
Nicotine stained fingers betraying her killer
as surely as any pathology could
Friends sigh, and turn their faces, as she glides away

A little bit confused was beautiful Spring, 
She had to choose for life a bridegroom. 
Who will give her a wedding ring? 
Three men wanted to be her happy and bloom. 

March, April and May vied with each other. 
About their great love they quietly talked. 
April was for Spring like a brother, 
With March she just often liked to walk. 

Timid March gave her beautiful primroses, 
Out of snowdrops he made a wreath, 
He didn’t want to know any losses, 
He promised her the whole world’s wealth. 

Delicate and sweet was April. 
He gave her a necklace of brilliant drops. 
The life with him could be stable, - he said, 
She’d be rich and would get good crops. 

A wonderful May pleaded Spring: 
You are my love! Take my wedding ring! 
Be quick, Spring! Be my wife! 
We’d be happy together the whole life. 

And Spring trusted the handsome May. 
Without any delay she sewed the white dress, 
For the veil she took the apples blossoms. 
That was her best and the happiest day. 

The whole world was whirling in the dance. 
May was getting married with Spring! 
The Earth was full of love and romance, 
Happiness to all this marriage would bring.

The Maid of Honour's Speech

I know the Maid of Honour’s duties do not include a speech,
But looking at the perfect Bride, a vision in gold... and peach,
I couldn’t let the moment pass, without the chance to say,
How perfect for each other you are, on this your wedding day.

We’ve been friends forever, in school you were a brat,
But now you’re older, more mature and getting rather fat!
I know you really hate me; the proof is in the dress,
This thing you chose to put me in, it really is a mess!

Bows and ruffles everywhere, however could you think,
That a mature twenty eight year old could pull off vivid pink?
I know your gown is hideous, but even with that said,
There’s still no reason why the other bridesmaids are in red.

It’s clear to all that your wish for me was just to look a show,
And as it is your special day, I thought I’d let it go.
You’d always seemed to find it hard to find the perfect man,
You sat and watched all of your friends find theirs and formed a plan.

You tried it on with who they’d found until you had a date.
And so you lost a fair few friends? You’d found yourself a mate!
And in the groom you’ve found a man who over flows with love,
And through the trials that lie ahead, he’ll help you rise above.

With hugs and kisses he’ll shower you and have a few to spare,
In fact I saw him earlier, canoodling with Claire!
Honey, don’t react like that, he’s a jerk, I know it’s true,
But remember that you first hooked up, at our engagement do.

A leopard cannot change its spots, or so the proverb says,
And you told me you only married him for money anyway!
But then again you always were a shallow two-faced cow,
And why on earth should you decide to change your ways right now?

So ladies and gentlemen please join me, raise a glass,
To the spiteful two-faced Bride, and her two-timing Ass!

Wedding Night Bliss

With a sleepy smile she whispered
“I said I do today”
Spoken words with heart and mind
Lust and desire made clear
“Boy, how you grind my gears
and still arouse such wantom awakening
to parts of my body previously only stirred…”
My mind turns to the number of times
we have all but made love with our clothes on
Innocently touching, holding, wanting
Preserving something so very special
ready for the day that I can take you
Knowing you are my bride, belong to me,
are part of me, for now we are one
Together every breath, movement, thought
melds together in heated entangled embrace
My hands search for the warmth of your touch
the silky softness of your satin smooth skin
Item by item crumpled garments fold to floor
as I slowly admire your naked womanly form
for first time 
watching waiting wondering
yet knowing you are as ready as I as you smile
I scoop you into my arms,
lie you on our bed
Slowly we make our way into Paradise,
lost to ourselves
Found in our desires for one another
Destination – satisfaction
We arrive as husband and wife

I Do

I've waited all my life, 
For a love like yours and to call you my wife, 
To have and to hold, 
I know you fit the mold, 
The key that fits perfectly into my heart, 
The assurance that we will never grow apart, 
Through thick and thin, 
No matter what, we both win, 
There's no doubt in my mind, 
No second thoughts of any kind, 
That I love you, 
And knowing that, I say, “I do.” 

I've always wanted to find my prince, 
He has no idea he is dropping me hints, 
And all his hints, I adore, 
I've never felt anything like this before, 
His warm, comforting touch, 
I trust in him so very much, 
I need him more then he could know, 
I will never let him go, 
Through good times and bad, 
When I'm happy and when I'm sad, 
He'll always be there, 
Through all the hardships that we bare, 
I know he'll never back down, 
And will pick up every pound, 
That I can not, 
We've already been through a lot, 
Our relationship can never be misconstrued, 
And with that sureness, I say, “I do.” 

And now that we are one, 
Here comes all the fun, 
Of our Holy Matrimony, 
Proving our relationship was never phony, 
We are reborn as of now, 
And when seen by the eyes of God, our heads bow, 
With His blessing, both of us are starting anew, 
And all that had to cross our lips was, “I do.”

Paper Thin

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
For kicks is why I do it now.
You tell me to love but I never knew how.
Our feet hitting pavement,
We spent the day in sunny California with sun kissed skin.
I’m learning to forget and how to fade scars,
And you let me let myself down so hard.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
And now I just do it for smiles,
We’ll never see flower girls stumbling down aisles.
I’d lose my head just before that chance,
But if you want we can still have a first dance.
Cause I think I say things that I don’t mean,
Once upon a time you meant the world to me.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
But I’m trying to refrain,
To make this not all end up in vain.
Maybe I can learn to love like some people do,
And you can learn to love yourself a little too.
Or it is in all fairness to let this go?
I guess we can try but then we’ll never know.

In Youth-less Age

In Youth-less Age

Though gentle, hopeful drifts we brood,
but age our wont be kind enough,
in threescores is when life imbued,
will partial be the earthly stuff;
but you'll still be my fancy then,
when Suns shall be the Shallowest,
and dry as those days --my fingers, pen!
Diluting the persistent best;
then shall I my own mind bereave,
when servile times would near a close,
but will your eyes, mine still deceive,
that greater truth than life propose.
The understanding of our earth,
up till we stay, --the way shall give,
entwine when with a lovers mirth,
we not our age but more shall live;
there I shall be a part of you,
though life may still not worthy be,
but time the hearts as one does sew
and breeds the soul's eternity.
Soon ladies fine with auburn head,
in youth's subservience shall grow,
with shadows white and lips blood red,
to whom the haste --the world will owe;
but, by the words that reason frowns,
and those that cost if cared for less;
within the gardens, across all towns,
just you my dame this heart possess,
as your my gardens cherished fruit,
could time nor age do you wrong,
your grace can shift a hand from mute,
such do my rhymes to you belong,
and the words, claims that come to me,
be their center, and my days renew,
until the time this soul is free,
and life us quells, an end pursue;
the end of the sojourn we made,
shall love then still be intense more,
when breaths and sight move to a fade,
like youth, your age --I shall adore.

What is it when?

What is it when your heart is filled with joy?
What is it when your soul sings for another?
What is it when you begin to truly cherish someone?
What is it when life seems so much easier?
What is it when you begin to share internal thoughts with another?
What is it when your eyes connect and express your thoughts without uttering a word?
What is it when you are automatically drawn to a person?
What is it when you find it hard not to think of someone throughout the day?
What is it when you change the routine of your day for someone?
What is it when little things become big things?
What is it when everytime your clock ticks you think of someone?
What is it when you sit and stare at pictures for no reason at all?
What is it when you begin to ignore that person imperfections?
What is it when you begin to yearn and crave for someone?
What is it when the feeling of being apart for more than an hour is devestating?
What is it when you find yourself making breakfast and you don't cook?
What is it when you find yourself doing things out of the ordinary for another?
What is it when you find yourself looking in the mirror just a little bit longer?
What is it when you discover that life is so much better with this person?
What is it when you feel like you are on top of the highest mountain?
What is it when you feel like the ocean is so much calmer with this person?
What is it when the phone rings and you are hoping it's that special person?
What is it when you find yourself giving without a care in the world?
The answer is SIMPLY LOVE!!!!!

Tea Time

Love in your bones, perfection, divine, a wandering heart pure is thine?
A moment in time, immaculate, sensual, alive, we align.
A mass of vibrating energy combines.
Lost here, safe there, warm dear?
Our love melts crippling fear.
There is no divide. No moon owns this colorful tide.
So now we jump! 
Inside my manic depressive ride.
Will I? can I? Abide? to society now, I have a bride?
Shirtless, shoeless, beard is long, happy am I.
Fear not, even King Kong.
Wife at home, smoking tea and high.
Jesus Christ! I sigh. sigh. sigh..
You pinned my soul, my thoughts and I..... 
Dreamed to die.
My, my, my.
Your cold hard shell.
I loved you then and wished you well.
A living breathing tree did fell.
Is it cold in this, your damp black cell?
For this happy fat sow.
Expectations melted, I chose, I allow.
By camp fire I love. I warm, with stars above.
Tea in hand, lying back, to know someday I will love.
I toke on tea, enjoying my smoke. I love it here, so real. 
For me, for me, I toast, I joke, this bloke owns nothing.
Sorry. I lied. Frothing. I do own something this lovely green smoke.
You strive for things, material and plastic, a waste of energy, I think, a joke.
Funny you see? means nothing to me, like you I wrote.
Happiness is. So very near, its here, shockingly clear.
Your mind, your head, to freely choose.
Before your old and dead, dead, dead.

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

You Are the One

She lays in his arms
he asks her what's wrong
the silence you keep
and the smile you fake
I know that something's on your mind
She says i don't understand
how someone like you
could love me the way you do
and he says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

they sit down for dinner 
he says it's been so long since we've been together
and there's something that I have to say
he gets on one knee and pulls out a ring
I cant't imagine why you're here to this day
but I hope there is not coming our way
and she says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

the preacher speaks
God's words does he say
Faith has brought us to this day
they look in each others eyes
and only they can see

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

no one else was there for me
no one else stopped my heart form bleding
only you can make me feel this way
only you can find my true smile
among the hopeless and the broken
you are the one that saved me from it all

you are the one
that makes my heart beat  
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
I looked everywhere
for someone to save me
and finally
you are the one

thank everything 
In this beautiful world
That made for me
you were there for me
you are the one

I cherish your tenderness brought into my life

My heart sings with the rhythm of your voice

No one is better for the position called “wife”

You’re the best qualified, I have no choice

Searching the dictionary for love, is the wrong way to go

I found the definition with you as my source

It said “All’s fair in love and war

There is always a puddle on path with a course”

Sleeping is good but this is what dreams are for

Though if our love was a dream, I shall never wake

By seizing the moment with my soul to take

Our hearts shall never need mending,

As long as we’re together they should never break

I couldn’t ask God for anything more

Till death do us part I ALWAYS ADORE

We'll be

We'll be forever building gold mines
from scrap metal and taking
recycled energy to cosmic levels
through third eye

We'll go un-noticed until the heavens turn 
or if our chakras are not aligned 
constantly diverting negative thoughts 
through our meditative lights

We'll build a sandcastle from determination
and live life on the edge,
fulfilling divine order and witnessing creation,
living in the now and staying ahead

We'll tip the earth off it's axis
and trick subconscious mind states into submission
You can catch us in the wind transcending counter reactions
Bi-passing illusions of circumstances 

We'll have an abundance of the maximum
Enough love energy for all who attract our path
We'll be the ones in the light
asking for nothing in return but peace
at last

Marriage in a nut shell

I said I do, 
But believe me I don’t
What I meant is I do
But she says hell you won’t
When I said I do 
I didn’t know it meant her way
So I should have said I don’t 
On that so called special day
But if I said I don’t
She would have convinced me I do
I should have ran off that day 
But me legs won’t go my way
Me tongue betrayed me

Does Family Really Matter Anymore

A family had a wedding...  The brother wasn’t invited.
The fact they didn’t want him,.. 
Was already decided!

When asked why his name had been “omitted.”
It was because of past wrongs he had committed.

The words spoken, one could hardly believe it!
Any kind of forgiveness? 
 They didn’t receive it!

How many times are loved ones not
 invited to “family occasions.”
Often times, families listen to “outside persuasions.”

Someone does something, 
that may not be liked.
Then they’re often told to “go take a hike!

No wonder why many families 
battle one another!
They have failed to truly love each other!

As we continue to see families drift apart.
This often leads to a wounded 
and broken heart!

Christ gave us his best!  
When we were at our lowest!
A life of mercy and forgiveness…  
He wants to show us!

If we can’t treat one another
 as Christ commands…
Then HIS way of family living….  
We’ll never understand!

Our Love Song

On this day and through eternity we will dance as one
On this day, the first day of the rest of our life together I pledge my eternal love to 
only you

Faithful Duplicity

In the depth of darkness sounds, words, just words of meaningless consequence
Never was there a line so cold, so still, overflowing with too much to hold
Elegant lies weaved into one, the crash comes soon as the enchanted deception runs
Vivid colors, blood red pumps and with every word the mind carries the forbidden orb 
Idolized perfection of thought and words, lips move as hearts tear, a lived lie rooted in flesh
Trivial tasks made into chores, that one line a promise of vows,rocks hide on crashing shores.  
And with the hourglass runs out, sand poured drinks for the parched sitting on stools of doubt.  
Bible teachings show guarantees, written in stone, did they know circumstance as these?
Lying now, even now as confessional insomniacs crawl in guilt, the pills to fall to that darkness yet
Even now in crammed spaces, dark rooms, the inevitable black of truth stains the white of lies.

The life I live, The choices I make,
The time I spent feeling my heart break,
The tears I've cried the sleepless nights,
The stress I endure threw out my life,
The moments I feared my deepest fears,
The loneliness I felt when you weren't here,
The pain I overcame to keep myself sane,
The moments I spent walking memory lane,
The night we made love in the pouring rain,
That was intense with suspense just the same,
The moment I knew that I fell deep in love,
Was the moment I realized you were the one,
The life that we live the choices we make,
Now all depends on the mornings we wake,
The love that we have and the knowledge we'll gain,
You'll be the one to keep my head  sane,
I'll be the support you need in your life,
I am so proud you call me your wife,
I will be who you need me to be ,
and you will be my husband forever indeed.

I always imagine you scratching my back
Kissing you
Holding you
Reminding me to relax
Secrets created remain secrets
Love created forced to be repressed
Feelings of lust overcome my being
Needing thoughts of you to even rest

I always imagine me curling next to you in a warm place
Touching and rubbing you firmly and sharing your space
Needing to be where u are
Outside of my mind though you're just too far
Untouchable it seems
Only seeing you in my dreams

I always imagine how it would be for just one night
To find out if it's really good or just alright
But in the meantime, I'll just imagine
because the hurt it would cause would be a major distraction
then it's over before it began
too much to even start to comprehend

I always imagine how good we’d fit
and if the lust is worth a try to pursue it
Becoming obvious to subtle movements of attraction
Slowing giving ourselves away
Silently whispering at every moment anticipating the time to play
Limited chances create chances to pull away
but passion and lust take over
and we’ll regret it as we lay

Because at this rate, my imagination has overcome,
I’m ready to murder consequences and consciousness about
what our business is and what we’ll become
Still maintaining home
Still escaping guilt and fear
Imagine being there for just one moment
Imagine letting go now
The moment is stolen by hurt and despair
for the innocent pair
Imagine being one of the pair

Bells and Cries

A lovely lady;
Growing inside, a new life.
A man in a tux.

Another bell rings now.
Final grades, balanced college offers,
Off to another adventure.

Damp ground, headstones.
Growing inside, a new life,
Done with their adventures.

The Cougar

I'm only in my twenties, but I really love this girl.
She's all I ever think about. She's my baby, she's my world.
Most people are ignorant. Some people just need to chill.
They're jealous, how can they understand, if they're not feeling what I feel?
Most say it will never work, but here we do it everyday.
It's give and take, just like everything else. We work together and we play.
We have fun together, we hardly fight, and our interests are the same.
If that's not a good match, then please tell me what is! I think you're the one who's insane.
We make each other happy! Isn't that what love is about?
She makes me want to jump up and down. She makes me want to shout!
Whould it be different if I were older then her? How does that make it right?
Men can date younger girls, and nobody cares to fight?
Well I don't care, I'm in love, and I will fight for this to last.
She makes me feel on top of the world. I've never felt this in the past.
This woman is sexy all around, and she has a heart of gold.
She's wonderful, up and down, the greatest story I've ever told.
So when you go out on the hunt, I recommend getting a cougar in your sights!
The one I got has rocked my world, and made my future bright.

Rose Petals

Glowing and white, pure liquid flowing
My heart is expanding.
And I hear angels singing a song that fills my soul.
Rose petals are falling.

A slow steady walk, a gentle loping grace.
My smiling man in all black
So gorgeous. So perfect.
So mine.
My face is shining.
The angels are singing.
Rose petals are falling.

A steady warmth
So strong, and so deep
That gentle heat fills me to my core
And I find myself falling


Rose petals are falling.

Done For Good

Her look that day,
Should have told me everything she could not say.
Unprepared, I stared.
She walked away.
As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

If I’d known then
How I feel today,
I'd heal the abscess and my heart’s decay,
Before her affection left me there that day.

A walk to remember

I It’s Sunday morning; sun has arisen- beneath the meadows of flowers of spring. Petals of roses blown towards the sky. Then, birds are chanting at the window pane, today is a special day for her; there were bells at the hill that are ringing a sweet symphony that plays in her heart. She dance closely on the beat of the leaves, rainbows of love filled at the heaven sky. II She wears her long white gown made of satin, she’s a princess and a veil is her crown. Today was a fairy tale, bells ringing, enchanted moment to be remembered. Her eyes filled with tears, a smile in her lips. This girl is turning into a woman, to begin a brand new life with her love of a lifetime full of love and of fun. III And it just begins as she takes a vow for the man she loves in the eyes of god. Flowers shower as the moment she walks a walk to remember of her life and to be cherished with all sweet happiness. And love grows closer together for two, they kissed as they bathe in the pool of love. Cheryl Aldea For Narrative Contest ( Catie Lindsay)

I love you I do

I love you so much. I really do.
I never thought I would love anyone else until I met you.
Unlike anyone else,
You have a way of making me feel good about myself.

Never thought I would feel this way.
I cant believe you proposed to me today.
You did it in front of all these people.
You knew I wouldn’t say no.
I will never let you go.

You always make me smile when  I ‘m  not in the mood.
You’re honest. You have  a good heart.
That’s why I choose to say I do.

I love you so much.
Love you more than  life.
I am more than honored to become your wife.
From the bottom of my heart,
We will always  be  together  baby

Nancy and Lyles Wedding

Nancy and Lyle are friends of mine. They had both been widowed. When they married it was very obvious that they were meant to be together. They had a mashed potato bar at their reception. I thought that it was a fun idea.

I went to a party the other night and it was quite nice and well above par, And my favorite thing for the guests to enjoy was a mashed potato bar. Into a champagne glass a generous scoop of mashed potatoes was placed, Then I could add any topping to it that I wanted and season it to my taste. So I took some green onions and some bacon bits and then just to please, I added a dollop of sour cream and a scoop of melted nacho cheese. To tell you how great it tasted would be to put the horse behind the cart, I have to explain that my mashed potato creation was truly a work of art. Those who were seated by me were nearly overcome by their temptation, When I ate my mashed spud Mona Lisa the taste filled me with elation. I went to get a second helping and duplicate the flavor and the joy, But when I got to the serving table what I saw only served to annoy. The ingredients that were set out had been completely changed, Now I had to deal with the fact that everything had been rearranged. And so to this mashed masterpiece I added pork that was wrapped in salty bacon, I covered the whole thing in savory gravy it was another masterpiece in the makin’. It seems I’ve threaded the needle and the odds for a second time I’ve topped, The shifting choices of life have slowed me down but have not left me stopped. Can you imagine the luck that I must have, to find something that was so nice, Only to have my life get rearranged but then to find something that nice twice? So raise a champagne tater glass to Nancy and Lyle and wish for them the best, And hope that the gravy of their lives remains lump free for they are truly blest.

Only The Strong Will Survive

God gives not peace, it's only dreamt by man,
in all the world ,brought from catastrophe,
all things are made, since time was first began
by things upheaved so new life comes to be.

The weak must fail, be eaten by the strong,
and losers die the death along the way,
so new life grows, even if it is wrong,
there is no time the poor will have to play.

The lion who will lay down with the lamb,
will have a feast before the day is done,
and all the world will never give a damn,
nor care about the giants and their fun.

        The hunter takes his aim and fells the dove
          the weak in life are only dreaming of.

A Trinidad wedding story

I hear that a girl in Trinidad
Looking for a very good husband
My brother says she father rich
Will give me house and land

Well I must admit I thought
This sounds like a good plan
So I decide go to Trinidad
And become she loving husband

When the plane land in the airport
It was getting kind of late
So we drive straight to her house
And we pack up by the front gate

We see the girl from the window
And we find her looking nice
Ah tell myself I make up my mind
I don’t need to think twice

Then we hear a fellar crying hard
Next door in a hammock
First time I hear a man bawl and cry
So I was kind of shock

My brother say boy see that man
He has some serious tabanca
He maybe likes some girl
And get run by she father

Turns out the feller next door
Well he wants to marry she
But she father says they poor
And they don’t have no money

So he trying to get a man
From America to come down here
But he really don’t know in America
Most of the men does live on welfare

Now I feeling bad for the feller
Because he really love her bad
How can I marry the girl he love
And take her away from Trinidad

But what if I don’t marry she now
And the father finds a next man
This poor feller might get a piece of rope
And hang his self in the cocoa land

So I say yes I want to marry she
I love her from head to tail
But he only way I marrying we must
Come out side cover up with a veil

Well we take the feller san Fernando
We walk in ram mohess tailoring
I Said make us two identical suits
We have to go to a set up wedding

The feller wears the suit
And he comes through the window
The pundit ready for the wedding to start
So he wears the veil and walk out the door

All the father rich friends from Trinidad
Gathered for the wedding day
But when he see is the poor man she marry
He gets heart attack and faint away

Well to make a long story short
The next time I when to Trinidad
I see she father with two grandchildren
Playing foot ball in the back yard

A Sad Story

What was to be her wedding day,
has turned to putrid shades of grey.
The one who pledged his love for life
has run off with the butcher's wife.

The butcher in a dreadful rage,
followed them to the Fargo stage
and with one of his butcher knives,
ended their false blackhearted lives.

He now sits with the saddened lass,
refills her fully empty glass.
He cries with  her in sad lament
at how dismal the day they've spent.

They both have missed the wedding feast.
He says,"We'll have some cake at least."
He cuts the cake with skillful art
and hands to her the biggest part.

For both it's been a trying day
and as the lass begins to sway,
after being wined and glucose fed,
she falls into the butcher's bed.

Tell me

Are we meant to be?
Or is it just a dream?
You & I
Are we meant for love?
Are we ready to say I do?
You & I
I'm just not sure If I'm ready.
Are we ready to say I do?
Or say good-bye?
You & I
I'm just not sure whether to go back?
Or keep marching forward?
Without you
Don't know whether these are my directions.
Give me time to think.
If you can't wait, move on.
Just you.
Know I can't be without you.

I'll Be There... By: Brandon Lucas 

I call out your name,
but you can''t hear me.
I reach out to touch you,
and you are nowhere near me.
I''ve tried and tried
and feel I''ve failed
and done by best
to no avail.
Look in my eyes
and tell me you need me.
I''ll give you my hand
and let you lead me...
to anywhere I don''t care.
As long as you love me

An Afghanistan Wedding

The swift and silent missiles swept,
The quiet well kept neighborhood.
They ran like hell, those that could,
While the reposed laid in their best dress.
With evil-doers upon the earth,
Vigilant must be the pursuit.
To cut the sickened by the root,
And banish vile impure thought.
With white-collar crime for collateral,
It matters not the costs.
As pockets line, the death toll climbs,
While the positioned take sabbatical.
And I cannot hide my bastardness,
For when we kiss   my lips   fall dead.

My dream wedding day

Looking at the first blush of the morning,
I know its the perfect day for a wedding.
The big fat white wedding, the dream,
To which every little girl clings.
I tell myself as I watch the clouds turn white,
That this is the happiest day of a woman's life,
And that nothing should come in between,
The perfect bride and her groom.
I remember those young moments when I used to dream,
Of how our wedding would seem.
It was just like I had imagined,
A pretty day like today.
Slipping into my white dress and stilettos,
I think of the way you had proposed.
The way I had always wished for,
A dazzling ring in sparkling champagne.
I switch to happier thoughts from our past,
Holding hands, watching stars, laying on the grass.
We were high school sweethearts,
The perfect couple was what they called us.
We spent our days sneaking in a few kisses,
We used to pretend to be Mister and Mistress.
We were in love,
The crazy, eternal and rare kind.
Memories are shoved as mother comes into the room,
Holding a few red roses in full bloom.
Her eyes are teary and her voice is shaky,
As she whispers that she is proud of me.
Tears spill but I smile as I slide into the car,
Remembering the times you'd sing to me with your guitar.
The times you'd reach over and,
Tuck a stray lock of hair behind my ear.
I laugh silently as I remember on the way to the chapel,
You saying once you were the beast and I, the belle.
You  always bring little candles and gifts,
And laugh as I make my birthday wish.
I wonder if you'd be laughing today,
As you cut the wedding cake with the sugar bouquet.
If you'd remember our old ceremonies,
In the event of your new one.
I walk through the gates smiling at our old friends,
And take your brother's hand as his arm extends.
He takes me in but lets me go,
As we reach the door to the flowery hall.
I peek through the crack to see you there,
At the altar smiling, running a hand through your hair.
I slip in and move to the side,
As the wedding march starts to play.
In came the blushing bride, walking gracefully down the aisle,
At her friends and family, she nods and smiles.
As I hold my breath and wipe my eyes,
Our high school love story plays in my head. 
I remember the day we promised we'd never part,
Because I would always be the one in your heart.
But your bride and you exchange your vows,
And I find myself repeating them inside.
The priest asks you to kiss your bride,
And I quickly slip outside.
Because no matter how alright I say I am,
Letting you go was the hardest thing I had ever done.

the wedding

The flowers arrives just in time
The fresh roses and jasmines
It’s the last of the decorations
As the guest starts coming in

The tables sets for 100 guest
With a menu place at each seat
Which list all of the foods?
That they are going to eat

And At the dance floor 
Have hanging roses coming down
With white ,pink and purple ribbons
And jasmines in a circle all around

My cousin ousman is the DJ
Playing romantic love songs
In his hands a sips a Carib beer
Then puts it down

Dresses of all colors
But only the bride will wear white
She is getting dress in her room
For her special day and night

She puts on her wedding dress
A bead of sweat rolls down her nose
She’s excited and so nervous
Her trembling lips red like a rose

Her black curly hair is all done 
As a little bit of girl’s laughter fills the room
The final touches of her make up
And the fragrance of ultraviolet perfume

The happiness on her face is glowing
It comes out in every word that she says
And the love in her heart of knowing
With joy she heads to her wedding day

From The moment I saw her 
It was love at first sight
And when I propose and she said yes
All my wishes came true that night

She is the destiny of all on my dreams
The one I will lay down my life for
The one and only one 
That I will love forever more

And I know she was created in heaven
And today she is going to be my bride
I know I will cry when we say “I do
Unable to keep my emotions inside

She’s walking gracefully down the isle
Every one turns to look at her in the room
I am the luckiest man in the world
Because she’s my bride and I’m her groom

And When I put the ring on her finger
I was completely over whelm with love
And why she chose me to share her life
Is a mystery that can never be solve

And when the wedding bells rang
We kiss and hug each other tight
And Pink, white and purple balloons
And the white doves were in flight

I will cherish every moment that comes 
Love her and make her happy in everyway
Make our happy home a castle 
And treat her like a queen every day

This is my wife, my life, my reason to live
And I love her more than words can say
And today our two hearts beats as one
In the holy matrimony of our wedding day

Little Red

Full Moon Brimming 
On A Hungry Wolf
Fire still burning 
Words are not enough

Red Riding Hood,
You stopped me where i stood.
The basket you held, looked so good,
I enticed...And you fell... 

In the woods... safe and sound
We could not believe what we had found
Me in denim... and you it lace

We understood, each other so very well
Full moon brimming over with light
Gazing into the eyes of the other

The twin to me, I did see, in You.
Be careful with my heart, my love.

My running shoes are unlaced for now,
So lean back and enjoy the ride.
Embrace all the laughter, our lives allow.

Stars shine brightly above me as I look up at the glowing full moon.
A cool breeze is blowing and
A soft music seems to play in the air around me as
I think of what life has given me.

This gift is more than I could have brought myself to ask for.
For the longest time I've been content to be there for others
Ignoring the fact that as I helped my friends find happiness, I have been alone.
Now I find that Life has given me a gift. A thing so precious that never again could I go
through life without it.

Life has given me you.
You, Suki, have become my life force. The very thing that keeps me going.
I love you with everything I have. Granted, it isn't much, but I promise you that it wont
be missed. I'll love you enough to make up for the materialistic things that I don't have.

The moon blurs as tears fill my eyes and I start glowing as bright as the shining full
moon above me and
I find that the music I hear around me that is so heartbreaking-ly beautiful isn't in the air.
It's inside me.
I never have to be alone again.
Never do I have to bottle things up for the sake of other people because I know I have
someone who wants nothing more than to have me cry on his shoulder.
I love him
And to the very core of my being I know he loves me.

Life has given me something I never dared to let myself dream of having.

Life has given me Suki.

True love

I really like talking to you
And you like talking to me also
We laugh and sing and feel happy
Then become sad when its time to go

We know what we have is special
And we both feel it in our heart
And if we really listen to our love
There nothing to keep us apart

But there’re so many obstacles
That is present in our way
And we keeping thinking of the future
While we are wasting precious time today

We don’t know when life will end
And it does not give us a warning
So we should enjoy the precious moments
For none are sure to wake next morning

When love and death comes]
It knows no age
Should will try to understand it
Or fight it with hate and rage

Some pushes the envelope
As far away as they can
And try to condemn others
When they don’t know their future plan

It easy to point fingers at others
While we keep our closet close
And no matter how much we pretend
The honesty of our heart god knows

True love is gift from god
For true love don’t appear out of nowhere
And no matter how far apart you are
Both your hearts will always be so near

You love the person heart and soul
For The beauty of love is so magical
And you will love that person all you can
For true love is not about how you look physical

Love is the greatest gift god gives us
And love s not caring of what other think of you
Love is when you are in each others arms
You know both your dreams have come true

Love is caring for her physically and emotionally
And telling her anytime .anywhere, I love you
And how you want to spend your life with her
And asking her to marry you and say I do

I would give anything to see your smile
And to look in your beautiful eyes
And to hear your sweet wonderful voice
And to feel all the beauty your love arise

So I just want to say how much I love you
And my is love is till the end of time
And until the day you arrive in my life
And you’re always next to me in my mind

Someone to love

I want to be Happy when you walk down the aisle

I want it to be you who Returns my smile

I want to be breathless  as you pass all the pews

I want the pleasure of really meaning I do

My life is one i want to spend with you

Someone who will see what the world doesn't

And help me up if i ever lose my footing

Someone who wont quit on me a year down the road

And whose hands i will still hold even when we grow old

Someone who will keep me warm when I am cold

And will tell me the truth if its only lies i have been told.

The better half of me.. the one who makes us one...

Someone I would gladly die for n never ever run

Simply to share my life with and unashamedly Love....

And to see our dreams come true...

The Day of Infamy

I can't imagine what goes through a girls mind,
As she lives grows and encounters the blues,
Looking for prince charming in the nick of time,
To carry her off on a journey that begins with two.

Most guys I know tremble at the thoughts of getting married,
They run hide say not for sale and crack other jokes for fun,
Guys think ball chain hang us now or let me be buried,
However with smitten heart they come with eyes fixed on one.

The day comes which the two have planned at last,
It seemed like forever this moment to arrive,
Hand in hand giving rings and vows shall they cast,
The Lord over them teaching them how to thrive.

Next stop vacation fun and the honey moon suite,
Then lessons of how to live together and pet peeves will spawn,
Moving on in their future we hear the pitter patter of little feet,
A home the lady will keep tidy while the man cuts the lawn.

Years will pass by and changes shall take place,
Children now grown and ready to leave the nest,
But the two remain in tact thankful for each other and new space,
Knowing it was God who helped them excel and pass each test.

I Love You

If you could look into my mind,
  you would readily see,
How much I really love you and
  just what you mean to me.

I can see in my mind’s eye
  the portrait of your face,
Which no artist could recreate
  and time could not erase.

So with each passing of the day,
  and coming of the night,
I remember when we were together,
  and the arms that held me tight.

Although I have no great offer
  like frankincense or myrrh,
You have my love and devotion –
  of this you are assured.

No matter what time is given to us -
  or what trials life should ensue,
Just remember from this poem,
  the mere words – “I Love You!”

Meeting under the tree, So great and so old As she arrives to see That he was quite bold; For looking spies him there On one bended knee, Not a look of despair But happy he'll be When she lifts him back up his face in her hands Then her lips do his brush, she makes him her man.

To love you forever, whatever you do
To be the best wife I can possibly be
You make me feel pretty and so free
You make me realize how great life is
There is nothing in my life I will miss
I swear to you that my love won't fail
I promise to be the wind in your sail
You make days free, nights serene
You are the best man I have ever seen
I promise to walk this road with you
To always smile, laugh and be true
I vow to hold you through the good and bad
To keep you elated and joyous, never sad
I vow to dedicate my entire life to you
To kiss your sadness away when I need to
Take these words to heart that I say now
And remember dear, my wedding vow

Thirty Years Ago

Man and woman, pledging no more to be single
Bride and groom, excited that their lives would mingle.
Husband and wife, in love, with hopes and dreams aglow
We were married at the chapel, thirty years ago.

Live In My Heart

Live in my heart
And possess my soul,
Adding chapters to lover`s tales never told.
Many could preach about
How tight they hold,
But this I see till the time we`re old.

Live in my heart
Where true love lies,
Where embracement and kisses 
At once hypnotize.
My thoughts your thoughts
At one in twine, 
Lips to lips
But both hard to find.

Live in my heart
And you`ll see my love,
True love...a sweet love,
Is what I have for you
And only you my love.

I Do Love You

I do love you,
I cannot describe it,
The love my heart and soul, and my whole being feels for you my love.

I do love you, 
I dream and daydream, of that day where you say I do,
Because that means you love me too.

I do love you,
You make me laugh when I am sad, and you pick me up when I am down, and you are the light of my bad day.

I do,
I do are just simple words, but they mean a lot to me,
You see, they are not just three letters, they aren't just two words,
These two words go a long way.

I do love,
You taught me how to contain myself, and not lose myself, and not get mad too easily, if I do, I can quickly recover from it.

So I want to say thank you my baby Dustin James Palmer, for being there for me and saying,
I do love you.

Cousins Wedding

Driving to Nick's wedding, 
Cant help but think...
Is there anyone there besides him I want to see?

Not really..
There's aunt Shirley,,
She always, always, always  wants to squeeze and kiss my cheek
I'm not five and I'm not a geek,
Bless her soul, my softer side will be in deep need

Grandpa Bill,
Oh man, he's so chill,
Usually in his rocker with a beer,
Maybe he'll rock it on the dance floor,
My spirits will need a lot of help,
Nick bought the Vodka, and he's poor. 

The bride will be gorgeous,
One bridesmaid I've never met
I'm skeptical because it's Nick's Ex.
No way I'd have a ex lover there,
For sure we tearing at each others hair,
Maybe that will beef up the party!
Cat fights are fun to watch,
Hopefully doesn't go too far,
Don't want the paramedics calling by her last name, “Ms. Gerardi”

I'll know soon enough..
Finishing this road trip is a must

You Know Now

Getting that feeling in your stomach,
a huge gust of wind whirling in your stomach everytime time you kiss him.
  When you think of him your eyes just close and you think of everything and anyting about him and you just smile.

Finally having someone that you can actually see your self with.
Finally being happy with someone and knowing it's everything you wished for, prayed for.
Finally knowing that if you'd lose him, your whole world would go dark.
Like part of you has been ripped apart.

That there you know he's the one you want to live the rest of your life with.

(8 months still going strong)

Meant To Be

Flowers blooming and birds singing,
a gentle breeze blows against the wind,
watching the leaves dancing in the air,
not a single cloud is visible in the sky.

Dancing underneath the swaying trees,
holding onto each other as closely as possible,
feeling the heat of the sun setting on our skin,
nothing else matters to us in this time and place.

As we softly hold onto each other close,
we listen carefully as our hearts beat as one,
together so full of tender love and life,
we couldn't imagine a better place to be.

Two hearts tied together as one,
rings of promise and vows of honesty,
as I take you and you take me,
we say yes and seal it with a kiss,
and as we look into each others eyes,
we knew that this was meant to be.

A Circle of Promises

Resting upon my outstretched hand
lies what was once
a circle of promises never ending
given as a symbol of love
spoken and unspoken
now just a circle of heartache(s)
this too never ending...
or so it seems.
Two people,
once possessed of this band
vowed for eternity
to travel together as one
a promise soon broken
rendering forever
one again into two.
That which long ago radiated
a warmth felt only
by those it encircled
its luster now dulled by time
lies cold upon my hand
with only my memories 
to hold it there.
I wrap it once more 
within tissue yellowed by time
and return it to my box
of gone but not forgotten memories.

You think you might be in love.

You think he/her might be in love with you.

You think about a lot of things. Do you really know those things?

You think a lot, you worry a lot. 

But do you really HAVE to think or worry about those things?
  Or do you WAN'T to think or worry about those things?

Now that there is something to think about.

A Love Connection

never go to sleep on anger
keep the lines of communication open and clear
be receptive to what each other has to say
even if it's not something you want or need to hear

remember it's no longer only just you
you're not in this all by yourself
you're now husband & wife, man & woman
in sickness and in health

marriage requires a lot of work
consider this now your primary role
for it takes two to tango
and two halves to make a whole

you have found your true mate, the other half of your soul
put all others to the wayside
trust in each other and the faith you have in your shared love
and then sit back and enjoy the ride

The Lord has blessed you both
with a glorious love connection
so just keep believing in each other
and may you have a union just short of perfection

I Want to be Your Bride

I want to be your bride
No beating around the bush

I want to wear a white cape
And mouse ears
I want to blow raspberries at your loved ones

I want to dance 
On a table to our song
I want to eat the best bits of the cake
And lick the icing
When no ones looking

I want to make a speech
When I’m drunk
And call you by an ex-boyfriends name
I want to sit on your Mothers knee
Thinking it’s you

I want to arrive an hour early at the church
In the rain
And wait outside
I want jesters and clowns in bridesmaid dresses
To follow me around all day

I want a ring
I want five rings
One for each finger
And thumb
Just in case I lose one

I want an orchestra of mice
To make your relatives dance
I want to take you to bed
And sing you nursery rhymes as I undress
I want you my darling
Don’t you want me too?

I can’t promise you that dark clouds will never hover over our lives...
I can’t promise you that the future will bring us many rainbows...
I can’t promise you that tomorrow will be perfect or that life will be easy...
But I can promise you my everlasting devotion...
I can promise you my loyalty...
I can promise you my respect and unconditional love for our life time and after that...
I can promise you that I will always be there for you...
To listen, to encourage and to give you my shoulders when yours is broken...
I promise to lend you my wings when yours have trouble flying...
I promise to catch you and carry you when you feel like giving up...
I promise to share your pain and your burden...
I promise to be at the center of your joy...
I promise to dream with you... hope with you and build with you...
I promise to share my dream and my life with you...
I promise to be your friend when you really need one...
I promise you that everything will surely be alright no matter how
Stuffed up they might seem or be...
I promise you that I will always take life blows in your place...
All that I ask of you is that you trust me...
Give me your hand and let me lead the way...

Forgive, please forget

I lie here looking at the ceiling,
Then I look to your word,
It didn't have much meaning, 
Trusting you is almost absurd
You left me broken promises
I know I'm better off
No more kisses
I need to write you off
I'm a creature of habit
I  know I'm not that tough
I have no heart to be compassionate
You stole it, left it in the rough
I'm Forgetting how your voice sounds
It truly makes me sad
yet still want you around
I still know what we had 
Why'd did you ever leave? 
Why couldn't we have been enough for you?
Now you wallow in sorrow and tell me how you grieve
love isn't for the weak I give the devil his due 
Now you suffer twisting, contorted pain
the worst mistake of your life
takes me back to lovers lane
You really messed up and I'm to alleviate you of your strife?
You think you deserve it?
…..I do.

A Blessing What is love

 Love is a blessing, and always will be.
For love still remains life''s sweetest mystery.
 Love works in ways that are wondrous and strange
and there''s nothing in life that love cannot change.
 Love can transform in the most common place,
Into beauty and splendor, sweetness, and grace
 Love is unselfish, understanding and kind.
For its sees from the heart and not from the mind.
Love is the answer that everyone seeks.
Love is the language that every heart speaks.
Love can''t be bought its priceless and free.
 A blessing from God above, oh shall it be.

when everything seems right?

cherish every last moment of it for tommorow may not be the same,
for you see though you may have one good day,
 many bad days filled with dark emotions shall follow,
however you see,
even though your in a bad spot,
youve had good times,
many of them too,
and nothing on earth,
not evan death can remove them from you,

I Do


I love you 
With a color of blue
Always stay true
For this life and through

I love you
With the softness of a morning dew
So soft and so new
For this life and through

I love you
Like a naive girl without a clue
So lost like a faded hue
For this life and through

So blue
So true
With a sense that I never knew
Urging me to say I do

The Gown

On the pedistool she stood all wrapped up in lace
Taken a back from the site that caused her heart to race

Her breath caught with a tiny gasp
For the reflection she could not quite grasp

A cascading waterfall of beaded milky satin
Was all she had ever truly imagined

Curls of golden waves peaked out from under a delicate veil
The picture of a bride now fully unveiled 

"This is my dress" she thought through a stream of tears
The moment she had dreamed of all these years

Here eyes gleamed with the new possibilities of life
She was now ready to become his devoted loving wife

For My Husband

I love you for being my husband.
I thank you for all your love.
I thank you for being there,
A special person sent from above.
I thank God for sending you to me,
For giving me a life with you.
And our children he entrusted me.
Your acceptance, guidance and care,
Given so unconditionally.
Together with my love and certainty,
Give us so much to share.
I feel a special bond not there before.
It gets stronger every day.
Making within me such awesome happiness,
My heart longs to soar.
I know that I am not always perfectly undoubting.
We both have our failures and imperfections.
I think, however, our short comings and trials
 Build between us stronger connections.
I believe that God has brought us together,
Because each has a lot to offer the other.
You, as the father and husband,
And me, as the wife and mother.

Divorce!!....My thoughts-

When the two hearts united....
And their souls, delighted!
When love blossomed between the two....
Excitement, happiness.... And nothing else they knew....

They longed to see each other....
Counting minutes one after another....
Excitement to be together....
In good or bad weather....

When wedding bells rang aloud....
And sent them onto the highest cloud...
Before an audience they both bowed...
"Together will be in life and death”, they vowed....

Months passed and time was gone...
Differences between the two were born,
They argued, fought and cried...
Alas!  Their love had died!!

A loveless marriage, the two were in...
With emotions and affections in the bin,
Feelings between them had vanished...
The relationship was totally finished!

Sight of each, other they hated...
Separation!!- They awaited...
Divorce!-The solution ,they sought...
And Each other they totally forgot......

Now I wonder....

Where did the love disappear?
Was it even there?  Ever ?
If did it die?
And why did they bid each other  goodbye?

How can one love someone and then hate?
Is it tensions and problems, or shall I call it fate?
If this is the path of love ...then I would say...
I wish never to walk that way!!

When someone rides the trail alone,
It's a lonely way to go, 
Without a place to hitch the heart,
And without a warm, true love to know.

But when a cowboy rides the trail
With his lady by his side,
Even when the traveling's rough,
Life's trail can be a joyful ride.

So, saddle up and hit the trail,
And may your lives be ever blessed,
As you ride along, side by side,
Toward the sunset in the west.

'She Danced With Me First'

A father.

Is a daughter's partner.

Their Life is a dance.

Where he only gets one chance.

To lead her across the floor.

To turn her away from wrong doors.

Sometimes it twists and turns.

Both hearts burn.

With pain.

Then it's ok again.

They just sway.

The dance is slow.

Away they go.


And laughing.

Then another change.

The steps, the beat all rearrange.

But they find a way.

In time they stay.

With the beat.

Their eyes meet.

He couldn't love her more.

As they move across the floor.

A man steps in, says dance with me.

Now she's his wife to be.

Dad lets go.

Goes with the flow.

He doesn't hate or curse.

He looks at him, and says, remember she danced with me first.

On A Day Long Ago

I look toward the double doors,swaying
Becoming unbalanced in many ways
Yet you were not there for my eyes
To feast upon this most special
Day of days so alone and lonely I stood
There were sympathetic murmurs out in
That sea of well-wishers,family and friends
Some angry,some bemused for their
Approval was never received and still
I did not feel any of their gazes for I was
In a deep,dark hole and then it was over
Hopes and dreams were shattered,my life too
Was damaged for a long time dearest,however
I had to learn to forgive you for you were a 
Troubled soul even though I thought I had healed
You and myself too it was not to be so now I
Look at your beautiful picture once in a great while
Wondering if your life has any shades of
Happiness and I pray for your well-being
Please know that I have let the anger go
It's a burden that poisons the soul and causes
The heart to turn to stone and I have learned
At long last to love and I am filled up with
Brightness again-I've forgiven you and I am free

We walked in oak cliff

We walked in oak cliff
Down a street, Rosemount I believe
a house, a dream
we released this home
It breathes,now
plastic, siding
we conceive
a life, a child
That’s her room
she could play
My studio
With windows
a entry way
the kind that stick
and resist Your fist on the frame
But life exists
In wood floors
A scratch, on buffet
what stories they tell
what treasures in age

The Ornament

For you I've awaited a lifetime
in whose heart is clarity
every virtue in you is realized
individual traits of a rarity
Your foresight understands ages
like gems your facets reflect
every spectrum covered rainbow
in the things you did not neglect
You have focused upon the real life
sought the finest treasures to find
found the path to eternal glory
your approval by God kept in mind
Every essence of your person I savor
like sweet smelling smoke of incense
you have kept your garments of whiteness
and washed your hands in innocence 
In every course followed your Master
did seek every lesson he taught
applied them with skill and precision
and reigned in your every thought
You listened to every Word spoken
and dug into the mysteries ground
wrote them upon the flesh of heart
your possessions as they were bound
You have removed all that's discordant
polished every jewel to a shine
placed them in a filigreed setting
the traits that will last for all time
How carefully you took in instruction
each quality conformed to what's right
did arrange a garment worth wearing
each quality lustrous in light
Your baring of it's graces are lovely
within your heart there lay no fraud
I've exalted you with rejoicing
You have put on the Love of our God

The final destiny

As the plane takes off in the blue sky
I’m leaving my home and life behind
And I am going to meet the girl I love
And together a new future we will find

I am nervous going in a strange land
As the engine of the plane starts
But so excited to see her for the first time
And hug her and feel the beat of our hearts

We have waited so long for this day
Now its just distance by 13 hours of flight
And I feel like kid going to a candy shop
Knowing my dreams is coming true tonight

I like to hear her voice when she says
You are going to see just an ordinary girl
And I would tell her no way 
You are the most beautiful girl in the world

And she would laugh and you’re crazy
And she would make some funny emotes
And then will say please take care of yourself
And If it’s cold make sure to wear a thick coat

Yes she is a person like that
Taking care of me form so far away
And now just a few hours from now
Going to look in her eyes for the first time today

And I know I will just melt in her presents 
Just like the snow in the morning sun
And my heart will be fill love an emotions
As the joy of our new life has now began

And I could never return home again
And ever leave you behind
So if you want to live here or in New York
Doesn’t matter for our happiness we’ve already find

To walk, to play, to talk, to hold, to cook
Every little thing that I get to do with you
Will be timeless precious memories
To cherish our whole life through
And on the day that we get married
And we take our wedding vows together
Will protect, cherish and cover you
With my love from any kind of weather

For your love has made me complete
And I feel strong as the lion in the wild
And can’t wait to see the glow in your eyes
As you becomes pregnant with our first child

As you start to eat a lot and smiles
Saying do you think i look like a fatty
And I will kiss you on your sweet lips
And say you are always looking perfect to me

The plane has arrived and I walk out customs
And the most beautiful woman smiles at me
And when she holds me in her arms
My life has reach its final destiny

The Life She Has Always Wanted

There’s a girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she’s always wanted.
She’s not looking for a fairy tale or gold.
Just a little work, and some love not from the usual mold.
He walks in with promises, ending in heartbreak and tears.
She drowns him out slowly, with new dreams and a few beers.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she’s always wanted.
Two years have passed, not much has changed.
She still comes each week to sit at her corner table.
Some work, many dreams, and a few beers become her label.
The women all judge her inside their private mind.
Small town men buy her a drink, wink and smile, but aren’t her kind.
The girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
She has big dreams of life, love, and the woman that she wants to be.
I sit across the bar, wishing she’d look just once more to me.
I turned my back, messed up not long ago.
She told me that she loved me, but she had to go.
I failed to show her my love, I’d hurt her badly.
Breaking her heart blindly, while loving her madly.
That girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life that she has always wanted.
Pulling the ring from my pocket, my jaw stubbornly clenching.
I push through the crowded room, and voice my intention.
Dear Beth, I will love you forever. I’m down on my knees!
Just give me one last chance, and marry me please.
That was two years ago yesterday.
And still my love grows more every day.
For the girl sitting at the back of the bar.
Waiting for a glimpse of the life she has always wanted.
As I nod and thank the bar tender, and add to his tips.
I pick up two drinks, turn to the back of the bar, a smile on my lips.
Cause there is my girl, sitting at the back of the bar.
Living the dreams of the life that she’s always wanted.

                                                                                       Summer Gratias

ADDICTED TO YOU by Collice Rodrigues

I wish to breathe my last breath in your arms

You’re the one to kill me with your charms

Everybody coaxed me to avoid you but no

You’re that someone who I just can’t let go


This world is cruel it has always made me cry

You take me to heaven and teach me to fly

You taught me how to deal with my pain

Without you barren would my life remain


You take me to a different world as I hallucinate

And all the pleasures of life you begin to recreate

I’m losing my senses someone tell me who am I

I know I need you but I don’t know why


Your absence makes me restless it’s you I need

I am an addict and you are marijuana my weed

I got addicted to you that I intentionally chose

Now that I’m addicted I don’t mind an overdose

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

With new dress and suit, flowers, and hair fixed just right
The dreams, plans, and labors of our lives would unite

My brother and his gal stood beside us on the spot
To give witness to the world that we tied the knot

We stood nervous before the preacher at his home
Promised to cling to each other; never to roam

Said “I do” to the questions; gave the preacher his pay
Man and wife; fifty-seven years ago today.

              Thought & thought , then got a result
              It's my loneliness which is causing a whole mess
              Aloof and sad, less money is also a fact,
              No money, No friends, no Support-is what I lack
              Money drags the crowd, 
              but friends are still not found,
              I fastened my belt,to fetch a new Pan,
              Where my life is no more lonely

              And I found a new ban
              What a sigh of relief--
              I got a friend who proposed me for a wedding ban

              Happy now I am with a partner in my van
              Life No more sucks and Life no more seems TOUGH!!!!!

Excuse me friend, 
It's a life time journey 
That calls for a life time of preparation 
Because the terms and the time 
Of your preparation for 'IT' 
Will determine your performance in 'IT'. 
If you are not well fortified for responsibilities 
(responsible-abilities and not liabilities) 
You should not be presented for 'IT'. 
What is 'IT' i guess you ask? 
MARRIAGE of course!
May i remind you that a major capacity 
Required to bear that responsibility (ies) 
Is responsible ability (ies) 
Then, you can expect the reality 
Which is a premium of right attitude 
On real or right activity (ies). 
It's a good policy and 
you need not alter your idiosyncray (ies).

Years of indecision 
Ended in an instant 
My life in third revision 
Starting in the present 

Touching everything I've owned 
Importing their very essence 
Of each and every feeling they borne 
History rearing it's very presents 

Boxed and placed on an empty truck 
My very existence held in transit 
That is when the melancholy struck 
Walking out this door would be a heroic bit 

On the other side of town a lady waited 
Patiently for me and for me to decide 
That my wild single passions were sated 
And to face and enjoy life by her side 

I fired up that truck, my heart, soul and mind 
Pointed them carefully to the other side of town 
Arriving at a place, I knew, true love I would find 
Truly amazed at the acceptance I had found.

Setting up House

I met a woman, fell in love
She was a gift from above
Soon she became my spouse
We gathered things and set up house.

Some things were new without a flaw
Some were hand me downs from Ma and Paw
For some we saved nickels in a can
Some were bought on the installment plan.

Children came – a total of four
Two boys – two girls- no need for more
We managed to provide room and board
Did the best we could afford.

We moved around from house to house
On an adventure – me and my spouse
Gathering things to which we would cling
But we rarely got rid of anything.

Tables, chairs, couches, and beds
Cabinets and shelves taller than our heads
Mugs, pictures, and bells we did collect
Mementoes and heirlooms on which to reflect.

A man gathers a lot in over fifty years
And remembers many of them with tears
Many a thing still fills my house
But it’s not a home without my spouse.

She has a room in a retirement home
Care is provided and she cannot roam
I dreamed one day we would be old timers
But I never figured on Alzheimer’s.

Now I have a house full of stuff
Too many things - more than enough
The time has come to downsize
To an apartment in the high rise.

My children came one by one
Went through my stuff until they were done
One takes this and another takes that
And managed to do so without a spat.

Giving things away is a lonely task
My irritability I cannot mask
Gathering things with my spouse
Was more fun than cleaning out house.

Sunlit meadows. A marriage.

Sunlit meadows. A marriage.

A sunlit meadow, pastures green, lovers join, a state serene
They are each other, the two are one
Their life together has just begun
Of times to come, their futures filled
On hopes and dreams on which to build.

The forms, just outlines, now are blurred
Their spirits soar free as a bird
Theirs is hope and love of life
Joined together against all strife

When two are one and strength they show
Their souls complete, true love will grow
A link once formed that cant be broken
So strongly felt need not be spoken
 A sunlit meadow, pastures green, lovers join, a state serene

The Art Of A Great Kiss

Upon thy moistened, warm and naked lip
I move my seeking, eager finger tip;
my life hath need of you,
I do what I must do;
to kiss thy mouth, where-in my soul can sip.;

'tis long been said, a kiss is just a kiss
and writ in song, we must remember this,
just words I sing for you,
I do what I must do,
to kiss thy lips, where-in life finds it's bliss!

I lay the reason, kisses take so long
for need of energy has grown so strong,
my love, in kissing you,
I do what I must do
to kiss thy lips, yes even if 'tis wrong.

there's never been a kiss borned not from need
demanding energy be sapped in greed,
my kiss is not for you,
I do what I must do,
to drain your energy, where-in my soul is freed.

Spell B o u n d

Spelled Out

Spellbound, he captured me

But it was only a dream.

Craftily my mind carved

A space where we danced

And he drank honey

From my pomegranate navel.

Gently we caressed

Butterfly kisses extended

Unto flight of heart.

Spellbound, he captured me

But he was only a dream

His rugged jacket and 

Camouflages marched

Like ghosts in a desert

An aching in the hollows of my belly

Called out to him

Our wedding day approached

As I searched for wedding dresses

Pressed into 

Bridal magazines forever

A flower of international deceit

Instant bravery served like

Coffee wasted unto a table of

Unfinished jigsaw puzzles.

Spellbound he captured me

But I was only a dream

Jacked up into a tiny space

I did not even scream 

When my very being splintered

At my second birth

Blood and dust compressed

Clanging in the ears

Of innocent passersby

I dissolved like ice

Buttered popcorn thrown into

A crowded theatre

Surprising everyone yet

Recognizable as marches

For freedom

That will always and never

Be attainable.

He pushed me into a corner

Of my own life and I looked

Out screaming until

I broke the spell.

I captured the dream

Sat it at a distance

Breathing life into it

A dragon blast of oxygen

A parade of hope

Like on January 16

Every year dreaming

Of peace and rightness

Spell broken I captured me

Forcing air into my

Lungs as I expanded

Breath after breath

Thought after thought

Step after step

Lifting my hands 

Unto the plow

Reclaiming my raisin

From the explosion

Digging the ditches

Of reconnection

Forming a mound of

Clay into a habitation

Praying arrogantly that all

Spellbound captivity

Will end.

We pledged our vows before God and man,
But to have and to control was your only plan.
you wanted a mother certainly not a wife ,
Your verbal abuse nearly destroyed my life.
You wanted to be a father but only in name ,
This was all part of your devious game.
An uncaring parent that's what you were ,
Blood is thicker than water don't you know?
Whenever you sow your seeds,
You nuture them and ensure that they grow.
Marriage is not a fairy tale,
Where dreams just come true,
It's a lot of hard work and committment  
you have to put in too.
So ponder on that before you answer the Lord,
Because as you know, he'ii always detect a fraud.

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

The scene of Guilt

Seemed as if an perfect day, sunny, not a cloud in the sky. We go to have coffee as usual
and laugh and chat. We carry out with the Saturday duties and of course go shopping. But
when we left the mall, an gang of shots was fired and you fall to the ground. I run to you
and you've been shot and I'm having an hard time looking you in your eyes. I call 9-1-1
but it seems as if they can't come quick enough. As you lay there, looking death in the
eye, your body begins to lose temperature. And i throw my Prada blanket over you, cause at
this moment, nothing matters but you. Guilt seeps in my heart, wishing we would have never
went to the mall, i want to blame myself and take your place. You caress my face and say,
" You know i always wanted to be with you and i feel as if i wasn't good enough. I watched
your heart repeatedly broken and i never had the guts to tell you. Your so beautiful and
everything i want. But  everything i can't have." Right after he finish speaking, the
ambulance took him to the hospital. I jumped in my car and attempted to follow but i had a
flat tire.

Weights shifted my shoulders and tears began to fall like the Niagara Falls. At that
moment i officially disliked myself. I walked home and was too shame to even go to the

Days later....

He calls me from the hospital, begging to see me and wondering what happened. I drag
myself out of bed and do the best i can't with my outer appearance. Which is pretty hard,
when you haven't slept in three day's, due to pain. I put on sunglasses to hide me bags,
underneath my eyes.

I walk in and he smiles. He's like an cheerful little baby, you can feel his beams of
happiness in the room.

He asks me, why i have on sunglasses and when i pull the off, his voice cracks and tears
fall. He doesn't have to ask what happened because its all in my gestures.

He gets out of the hospital bed and gets on one knee and purposes. And i accept.

Years later, I'm glad we went to the mall, it took all of that, just to see he's the one
I'm suppose to be with.

My baby
My precious
My warm and glowing light
I cannot seem to sleep at night
For dreaming while I'm awake.

I dream of the kindness I see in your eyes
And I yearn to be able to hold you.
I dream of what Dubai is gonna look like
And how happy I think I'm gonna feel


Over and over I say your name, and only because it brings its you I've fallen in love with.

Aw man, if ever there were words, I'd sing them to you.
If only there were actions that showed you strong enough, I would do nothing else but
dance them for you.

But let me tell you this, my sweet love.
I have my whole life to sing
My whole life to dance
My whole life to dream.

And I want nothing more than to spend my life doing those things with you.

You do not know me but Marry me

We should be together why are not we? 
For I can see your open heart..
Opening for me. 
It is me deep down these wounded parts
That scatter to thee..
It makes me feel a world apart, 
Though not knowing when it will begin?
Scared like a Vicious Reptile, 
So fearless and Strong..
Yet so fearful inside.
Whisper through your silent thoughts..
And kiss this silent mouth. 
You will feel as my love feels, 
Happy to take a true love kiss..
So deep..
Deep within our body and soul.
You will feel free.
Love will take us under its wing.
I fall each time..
And fly so high when you smile.

You will see through time..
With life handing out its mutual feelings..
Feelings of growth.
We will grow each passing day.
Strong and then weak..
And then Stronger. 
Hear what I say, 'You are what I need'
Come like speed with light so bright..
Rescue my long awaited heart.
I have to tell you how I feel,
Lets make a seal. 
I promise that I always have..
I always will.
Will you believe? 
I do.
I cannot see a life without you.
I get hurt and absent without us two
Why' to even think that such as 'us' Could become One.. 
And then even more than that!
Even all through the bad times
Good will show we always have..
Love for eachother.
This will be fresh again and again, 
Through our children..
And our grandchildren. 
'Youth' that will feel,
For our love to grow within them..
Means we will never be apart..
I swear.
This is Love. 
This is our life.
And so I say with every true breath.. And fight..
I do!

Finding Your Heart

Slowly drifting through this world
Never listening yet never being heard
I am so lost and confused
Why am I the one that always has to lose?
When will my heart find yours?

Crawling daily through life’s ups and downs
Living each down with my face in a frown
My heart never flutters or ever skips a beat
I ever anticipate when our souls will meet.
My heart will soon find yours.

As I’m going through life ever still
A rush over my body, suddenly I feel
This feeling is something I’ve never felt before
It’s warm and refreshing, it opened the door
To my heart as it found yours.

Your love has truly opened my eyes
My whole world is now comprised
Of joy and contentment within my soul
After all this time, I finally know
That my heart has found and will never lose yours.

The Earth's Core

I left the Earth and walked to the Moon passing the Sun.
Along the way a Star I did meet full of treasures and fun.
The Star had a story to tell so I listened carefully so keen.
It told me of Earth’s history and mysteries setting a scene.
There was a King a Queen a Prince and a princess before.
Not born of Earth but of this Star that made plenty more.
The Star buried them in the Earth’s core where they grew.
It took years and years for this mixture to ferment a brew.
In the Earth’s core were diamonds as big as Mountains.
They sprung forth showers of fires like huge fountains.
Under the diamonds was a huge magnet pulling the Star.
They stayed together and worked as one to build a heart.
So they gave the heart to the Queen and the princess.
The King and the Prince were able to take a recess.
They went on and built the dome around the Earth.
But in the core lies a timely date for a new rebirth.
So they grew and woke up and jobs were assigned.
They had to gather the crops and all planets aligned.
They had to dispense kingdom upon kingdom by a breath.
They had to experience a multitude of life and one of death.
But they hid treasures upon the whole Earth and stored.
They sealed fate conquering life and death until bored.
So one day they decided to go away leaving  treasure.
They’d build galaxies and more Stars hard to measure.
They stayed together and lived happily ever after.
Each with a skill and a talent cheerfully in laughter!

Within your bedrooms closets

Every article hand chosen

Every gemstone found that's precious

which will adorn your bride
Here stored is every value 
where err' prized thing do keep

It's tailoring form fitted
garments exquisitely designed

their attire you've made flawless
the original design and form
where moth and rust can't corrupt
here Love's purity is worn
Luke 12:27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and
tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!

1Pet 2:19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering
because they are conscious of God.20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating
for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is
commendable before God. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you,
 leaving you a model, that you should follow in his steps.

it feels good to know 
I have found someone 
who cares as much 
as I love the sky 
as I love the rain 
as I love spring 
or a summer day 
it feels good to know 
I can look in your eyes 
and not be denied 
the love I feel inside 
is more precious than 
the first blooming flower
the first clap of thunder 
the first ray of sun 
after a shower 
it feels good to know 
where ever we go 
you are always with me 
by my side
and knowing you love me 
makes me fly
higher than the biggest plane 
further than geese on autumn days 
for I am undoubtably yours

My Beloved (Part II)

                     Milk and honey are under your tongue.  Your teeth are like a flock of 
sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing.  Each has its twin, and none is 
alone.  Your voice is like apples of gold in silver frames, so as the fragrance of 
apples fill your breath, speak to me.  Call my name for your words are smooth as 
oil, majestic as your crown.  Your hair is like the flocks descending from mount 
Gilead; like royal tapestry, it's glorious and I'm captured by your tresses.  Your 
temples, behind your veil, are like the halves of a pomegranate, and your ears 
are bordered with rings of gold and studded with silver.  Your neck is a tower of 
ivory with necklaces of gold, and your shoulders slope like the falls, as your arms 
cascade your body.  
                     Your breasts are like twin fawns, tender, browsing among the lilies.  
Your stature is like a palm tree, and your breasts are like its cluster of fruit.  I will 
climb my palm tree and take hold of your fruit.  They are like the clusters of the 
vine; they are like the best wine bringing me full contentment- so shall I be 
satisfied with your breasts at all times.  Your waist is like a mound of wheat 
decorated with lilies, and your navel like a golden goblet never lacking wine.  So, I 
thirst for my garden's founts, and I hunger for her choicest fruits; as I unlock your 
barred gates and unseal your closed springs, my eyes are fastened upon you.

White Wedding Dress

As I look around, A glorious decor
Everyone sitting around, those petals on the floor
Smiling faces, and wedding cake
A perfect picture you and I make
In black and white you stand at the altar
There's no way that this day could Falter

But Alas..

I wake up to know that my dream is a Nightmare
To see you with her, How could I NOT care!?
To think that could have been ME at that threshold
A page in my diary I SCREAM to you TENFOLD!

Why me?..

I sit and I ponder what could have caused this
What could I have done to ruin this bliss
I stop, because from god this must be a test
So I accept, I'll move on
and Say goodbye to that White Wedding Dress...

Young in Love Again--- SONG 2

Every time I breath,
	I feel your arms around me;
     Holdin’ on so tight, that it makes it almost impossible to see.
The stars are dancing their own little dance, as we hear the drums
		Pounding in our ears.

I remember we were running through the trees,
Trying to reach the top,
Giggling and screaming at the top of our little lungs,
I wish we could go back and be
Young in Love Again.

I flash back to us growing up,
Catching each other in long silent glances,
With the same little question bugging me and you.
But then there was your girl; 
And she adored you, then I was always blue.

I remember sitting alone writing in my book,
Watching you stand there cuddling her,
With me longingly looking, dreaming I could be her and 
I kept wishing that we could go back to being
Young in Love Again.

Then there was the day,
	That long awaited day.
You had left her for me,
   And in sweet ecstasy, you kissed me.

I remember everything falling into place,
Walking down the aisle to you,
Standing there in black and blue;
Our dreams were finally coming true 
And we were no longer wishing to go back ‘cause
We were Young in Love.

But then things changed. . .
	One little change, we didn’t expect it to come.
        It was the letter sent for you to go.
		And in my head,
	Was all the bad, wondering if our precious little one would survive,
			From all my pain
				From this one good-bye. . .

And I remember going back to all the good,
Breathing out the bad,
Trying to forget the truth, that you had to go;
And we were praying together, 
That we could go back to being
Young in Love Again.

And I remember. . .
	And you remember. . .
        So we remember. . .
		And we pray. . .
				That if we meet again in another place. . .
We will be
	Young in Love Again.

Looking back at him __desiring

So handsome fire__home ice

The broken fairytale

Once upon a time there lived,
A beautiful girl and a man she loved.
So true was such their love,
There wasn't anyone who disapproved.
It had been love at first sight,
A fairy tale since that day.
The maiden had found the man of her dreams,
No one else needed to have a say.
They had done it all,
Candlelight dinners, shyly holding hands,
Kissing in the rain, dancing around trees,
Leaving intertwined footprints on white sands.
But it wasn't just another love story,
It was uniquely special like every other one.
They had eyes for no other but one another,
The best part of their lives had just begun.
They traveled around the world,
And she kissed her man at the seven wonders each.
People would smile at the storybook couple,
As they counted stars standing on a beach.
With her, he was the man he wished to be,
The one who wouldn't think twice,
About pulling her up to dance in a crowded train,
He'd protect her, keep her happy at any price.
He'd see through her weak smile,
All the way to the tears inside,
He'd whisper sweet things in her ear,
Hold her till all the tears dried.
Though they did have a fair share of problems,
They always came together again,
No matter what happened,
Like raindrops on a window pane.
On a rainy day, she had sat waiting,
Wondering about the surprise he had promised,
But he never came,
For the winds of fate had suddenly changed. 
Five years after that day, she found herself alone,
Sitting on the porch, counting stars on her own,
As she recalled the day he had been taken from her,
'An unfortunate accident' on the next the papers had shown.
She hadn't cried on the phone, she hadn't cried on the way,
She didn't even cry when she had to identify him,
Not a single tear or a heartrending sob.
She just stared ahead with an expression so grim.
It was only when she had received his belongings,
The remnants of his last minutes, did she react.
She screamt and cried, laughed and wailed,
For among others, was a diamond ring beautifully packed.
His surprise, the laughter in his voice,
The excitement, the secrecy of the evening.
He had been right, it had left her breathless,
But he wasn't there to see the sorrow it did bring.
Even now her eyes brimmed with tears,
As she looked at the ring as it sparkled,
And thought of that time when there lived,
A beautiful girl and a man she loved.

Thank You

Thank you for cheating; thank you for lying
There are now less nights where I am crying

Thank you for leaving me behind 
And not making me think that you were really mine

Thank you for opening my eyes; that was very kind
For now I can see you for who you are; I am no longer blind

Thank you for not caring; thank you for not comparing
For if you did, a scar I'd still be wearing

Thank you for treating me like I am the one at blame
I gave you  three strikes; you are no longer in the game

Thank you for breaking my heart
Thank you for now I can begin a fresh start

Thank you for turning your back on me like this
I am to you as you are to me; you don't exist

Thank you for all and everything
No marks left on my finger from my wedding ring

Losing Soldiers

They won battles for their nations
But lots of them failed in their personal lives
They are really brave people
But why they lose in their real battle ?

Is it the training that given to them ?
Why don't we train them to be people
War is not the essential part
We can live in peace if we want to be

Don't train anyone to fight or attack
Give them lessons of self defense
No more hate lessons to soldiers
Teach them to love and protect

When they come from battle field
They will find someone to love 
They will protect them at any rate
If they ever learned human feelings

Girls love them as great patriots
But they fear to marry them
That fear should go away
Soldiers should do something for that

Wedding Blessing

As you stand here before God,
Now may he stand beside you.
May you and your family be blessed in all that you do.
May your family find love as your hearts twine as one.
May your journey thru life follow the light he has shone.
Together you’re stronger than ever apart.
And thru the years, may God be found forever in your heart.

My nephew was married at Christmas.

The Hung Jury

When he entered the world 
They started him off with
Non-negotaible funding
For a sacrilegious plea.
After all,
He'd been through a lot.
Enough to know what
Was good for him.
When he waited for
His turn to reply
Instead of listening
To their speech
He noticed a fellow
Jury member
Nugging at his knee.
What oracle 
In all her honesty
Could foresee 
What they would
Channel unto his
Sun soaked brow?
His wife's plush face
Contorted in 
An anthrax laced expression
That deadened the nerves in his smile.
She knew.
History became a myth to her.
Now all he was 
Was a drifter
Only seemingly beautiful to
Awkward girls just above
Smiling but
Always below turning to dust.
He reached inside their 
Far fetched frowns and
Drew back the staggered snarling
Of the beast that
Bid him goodnight.

Forever-Part 1

Out on the beach with an amazing guy. The sun's so pretty, the sun's so bright. We're walking and talking about all our good times, against the world, hand in hand. Smiling and walking on the beautiful LA sand. We sit on a bolder and watch the sun set. It's an amazing day, one I will never forget. You slip your arm around me as we as we look at the beautiful sea. "I love you," I say as we feel the cool evening breeze. "I love you too," you say and pull out a small black box. I look at you, smile, and my heart stops. You open the box to reveal a beautiful ring. "Will you marry me?" you ask as my eyes fill with tears and my heart starts to sing. My smile gets wider as I say "yes". You pull me close to your chest. I gently kiss you as a tear rolls down my cheek. You brush it away and smile at me. "I love you," I say one more time. "I love you to baby," you say as you smile, "now your deffinitly all mine."


Today's the day, the day that starts the rest of our life. The day you become my husband, the day I become your wife. The last time I saw you was last night. But I woke up to a beautiful sight. A bouque of beautiful red roses lie on your pillow with a note on top. "I love you," it says, "and I can't wait to see you." I smile and whisper "I love you too." I take a shower and walk down to the beach to see how much is done. I step onto the hot sand and I feel the hot sun. It's almost done so I start to head home. I need to here your voice so I call your phone. "Hey babe," you say, "is everything okay?" I tell you everythings fine, I just need to hear you. I tell you I love you. You tell me you love me too. You say you have to go but you'll see me soon. "Okay, I love you," I say and look at the clock, it's almost noon. "I love you too," you say and the line goes dead. I look in the mirror and put my hands on my head. I smile and start to get ready for tonight. The first night of m new life.

I take a look in the mirror one last time. Just to make sure my beautiful dress is fine. I walk down to the beach and wait by the gate. I fix my veil and look at my friend. "You look amazing," she says and puts some flowers in my hand. "Thanks," I say and smile. I can't wait to walk down the aisle.

My Beloved (Part III)

                      My attention is undivided as you dance for me the dance of 
Mahanaim with your beautiful sandaled feet.  Your graceful legs are the jewels of 
the Master Craftsman, which surround my waist, and your feet secure them.  So, 
we embrace and come together, for I belong to you, and I know your desire is for 
me.  Hold me close and caress me because the winter is past; the rain is over 
and gone.  The vines have budded and the blossoms have opened.  Everything 
is now ready, and our bed is new and lively.  It's undefiled.  It's spread abroad 
with silk and satin and is perfumed with aloes and cinnamon.  And in our bed is 
every delicacy that has been stored up, so let us solace ourselves with loves, 
and let us take our fill of desire until the morning.
	I have come into my garden; I have gathered myrrh with spice.  I have 
eaten my honeycomb and my honey.  I have drank my wine and my milk, which 
have come straight to me.  Flowing gently over my lips and teeth is the drink of 
your spiced wine, the nectar of your pomegranates- and I, too, shall always fill 
you with love.  You are priceless to me, and I trust you.  I will be good to you all of 
my days.  You are blessed.  You excel all others who think they have done 
virtuously.  Cradled beside me, you protect my heart, and I will praise you 
because you fear the Lord, but never be afraid- I will do for you all that you 
require.  I will be for you all that you need, and my banner over you is love.  
                    My queen, I am rich in you.  You send light into my life as fair as the 
moon, and clear as the sun, and majestic as the stars in procession- and I love 
you.  I love you for who you are.  I will always cherish and adore you.  I will live 
with you in understanding and compassion, and I will care for you, so be secure 
in me.  We are one; you are my only one, and I am yours.  This is the Lord's doing 
and it's marvelous in our eyes, so let us rejoice together in Him and celebrate 
our love.  Let us join together always and delight ourselves forever.

My Salewa

My S-a-l-e-w-a

Before you say “I do”
Think deeply before given your precious life
To that person you think you love….
Since marriage is not worth rushing in, for rushing out sake 
Since it is not lived in other people’s path or in their will
Neither is it lived as your parent’s had lived their lives

Since it is not for the reason that; my entire friend’s are married
So ‘You’ must…and your desperation makes you desperate to get it
And it is not because you are alone and lonely and need someone
Or been pressured to marry from your relatives and colleagues
But because it is sacred, it is a commandment, and you have found such one

Since most who had tasted the marital life are clamoring to come out...
By divorce or separation or through death
By physical or sexual violence...or emotional withdrawal
And those who have not tasted the marriage experience desire to get in… 
By pregnancy, or cohabitation or through formal wedding

And you will ask what went wrong? Why this struggles?
I say think deeply before giving up your single-hood
To that intimate stranger you called your man
To that seducer you called your woman
To that neighbor you called your friend
To that passer-bye you called your partner
To your colleague at work you called your fiancée
To your classmate you called your spouse-to-be

Since your single life after giving it away cannot come bye
Because your single life is that time you have for yourself
To be responsible for your choices
To plan your career life and create your world
That time you have to yourself to create your empire
That stage in your life that you need to master
Your thoughts and emotions….
That time in your life you need to examine the life your living

That period you need to know thyself intimately
That moment in your life you need to follow God with your heart
That phase of your life you are creative and imaginative
That era of your life you must be resourceful and adventurous
And become useful to yourself and to the person you love
And accept to live the rest of your life with him

Before you say i do
count the cost and consider the price to pay
are you emotionally matured
since marriage is not all about sex
it involves your person and personality
it involves your emotion, money and time

since what you demand from your spouse
is what he needs in you-and you need in him
what you will spend is your emotion
how you spend it is your responsibility
please think deeply before you say i do

My S-a-l-e-w-a

for eternity

-to reach out your hand
  and capture a star,
-to gaze upon your face
 and touch your heart from afar

-to dance with your soul
 across the pages of life,
-to taste the vision's of goal
 with the look in your eyes

-to share one's laughter
 hearing my song of spheres
-to see the lights beckon above
and never blink those painful years

-to dream of the moon
in a bed made of gold,
 this circle of life,can never grow old

-to breathe for myself,and breathe for you
from hopes of yesterday and the promise of tomorrow
-to sleep in comfort beneath your wings
in space in time of  our love overflowing

-to inhale your spirit ,and feel your heartbeat
the moment of oneness,for this beauty could only wish...

A piece of paradise for you and me
 It is  meant to be, 

My  eternity.

Poetic Nuptials

My love you have found me in my proudest hour.
My dear I found you in my prayers so clear.
Soon we shall be bound in harmony of power.
Soon we shall be together in a bond so sincere.

Take my hand and promise to love me forever.
I take your hand and swear to cherish your heart.
Holding hands honoring each other in this endeavor,
Now we share words that can never be torn apart.

Looking into each other’s eyes, glistening in love,
Seeing each other’s hearts shine in heartfelt gold,
Standing so very close, watched by angels above,
We fold together for our binding kiss does unfold.

Bound in matrimony today, we placed our rings.
Upon each other’s fingers, now our passion sings.

The Question

I sit in my chair lifeless
Knowing your not there
I look back on the memories
Seeing all you did was care

I never see you anymore
Just in my heart and mind
Wishing I could see you again
Waiting for the day where I can rewind

Back to where we met
I would confess my love to you
And never ever let you go
Then do what I wanted to do

This is very hard to say
But this is how much I want us to be
And I want to spend the rest of my life with you
Sweetheart will you marry me

Brilliant pool of sunlight

Brilliant rainbow arced into the sky
Big house in center of the  village
A soft light bathed the large room
wedding feast  rice strewn about
Greeted  with loud handclapping
Fogged gold-rimmed spectacles
Garlands  on statues of  Buddha
Dancing  and singing for Krisna 
Bobbins and  a  spinning wheel
Majestic elephants trunks curled
raising  mushrooms of dry  dust

Song of Betrothal

I have sought your place down by the sea
for a heart like mine trothed in unity
I have searched the lands low and high
for Love that would extend unto the sky

I have walked the mountains path and trails
hunting a beloved who never fails
go forth oh daughters of the land
there is only one woman I'll take in hand

She is fair, my love, and tender of heart
I dream she's there when the day does start
her words are honey within it's comb
the only one I will bring to my fathers home

I seek for you now most everywhere
looking for the sun shining in your stare
there beauty lies within flowing robes
and inner light whose bright blaze shows

She'll think of me as her comely Lord
with my company never will be bored
with many talents is she graced
among the peoples her work is traced

She's the fruit of the vine unto my smile
will speak sweet truth without any guile
she'll enfold me with serene embrace
lift her eyes up to seek my face

She'll reach forth to take hold my hand
and follow my paths throughout the land
our children will all become one nation
The stars of heaven will be our station

sources Song of Solomon Proverbs 31:10-31

I Love You

I love you is more than just my words,


It is this deep down driving force of a silent sound.

Love is a magnet igniting sparks to try higher light.

Love connects beaming light twinkling at midnight.

Unmistakably, I’m assured audibly to get this heard.


I love you is more than me,


Love is pending in the depths of me I touch.

This is more than what I can realistically feel.            

It is a bargainer’s deal for the sweetest steal.

Evidently, I run wild because I set it all free!


I love you is less than you,


It is an uncut gashing wound,

With lifetimes of a scored scar,

It is a typhoon of who you are,

Apparently, it is difficult to do!


I love you is less than them,


It is always lost,

It is never found,

It binds to a cost,

Hearts are bound.


I love just like you,

And you love just like me!


I swear to my God Almighty from up above my heart is pure and true!

I really do embellish everything my love is suppose to do just for you!


Forever and ever, the whole world shall open their eyes daily to see!

In lieu of this unconditional love, it is here I will always want to be!

On this astonishing day, 
Beneath the overwhelming sky, 
I am not reluctant to pray 
For poise as we prepare to fly 
Into the unknown, come what may. 

We cannot know what lies ahead 
But I will not tremble in fear 
Nor will I question thoughts unsaid 
As the appointed time draws near 
To walk into the dreams we've fed. 

Extraordinary vows speak 
Of spiritual unity 
As we gaze into triumph's peak, 
Daring to glimpse eternity, 
Beyond the human flesh so weak. 

Oh, I pray we stand strong and tall 
For generations yet to be; 
Let the world see we greet the call 
To live as one in harmony, 
Facing the future of it all.

Your Lover (Part II)

                    Just for you, may my head be purest gold with hair wavy and black as 
a raven's.  May my eyes be like doves by the water streams washed in milk and 
set like jewels.  May my cheeks be like beds of spices yielding perfume and my 
lips like lilies dripping with myrrh.  May my arms and hands be rods of gold set 
with beryl under you, embracing you; and over you may my chest be like 
decorated sapphires and my back and shoulders like polished ivory.  May my 
waist be as lapus lazuli and my legs like pillars of marbles set upon feet fine as 
gold.  Let my radiance shine upon you.  May my countenance be like the choice 
cedars of Lebanon and my mouth be sweetness itself, the most sweet; as your 
lover and your friend, may I be altogether lovely.
	I am yours; you are my mine.  Have your way with me.  Give yourself 
to me because my desire is for you.  Let me be your rose and your lily; like a lily 
among thorns, my love is protected for only you.  Like an apple tree among the 
trees of the forest, let me be among the young men.  Lean upon me, against your 
apple tree, and rouse me; come up with me.  I am at your mercy.  Delight to sit in 
my shade and taste my sweet fruit.  I am your banquet hall, and my banner over 
you is love.  Let me strengthen you with my raisin cakes and comfort and refresh 
you with my apples.  When you are faint with love, my left hand will be under your 
head to support you, while my right arm embraces your beauty- for now is the 
time to arouse and awaken our love.  Now listen...

Put my trust in the Lord above

I look into your beautiful eyes
                                And it's so clear to see
Faithfully by your side
                                Where I am meant to be
As I softly kiss your lips
                                The only thing I know
I was born unto this earth
                                To offer you my soul
On this our wedding day
                                My words are those of truth
As our bodies grow old and tired
                                Together our spirits dance with youth
And when we reach the after life
                                So full of mystery
Standing proudly by your side

the rose

                                                    (love story)

She was only 21-when her fiancés life
Was taken with a gun.
They had three years together
And life was getting so much better.
They had plans for a wedding in June
But it ended much too soon.

He had given her a long stem rose
Then he fell to one knee, and did propose.
She took the rose and with loving tender care
With her diary she would share.

She took the rose and cut the stem
And she knew his love would never end.
She knew with time this flower would wither
And die- and that it was a love between he and I.
So she got the silica gel, And preserved the
Rose very well.

She put it into a plastic bag 
and vacuumed out all the air.
Then put it into her diary
Where only she could see.

They said it was a down right shame
That he was in the middle of a shootout
Between two rival gangs.
That was when he lost his life
Before she became his loving wife.

As the tears rolled down her eyes
She started to visualize
Of how her wedding day would have been
Had he not been in the wrong place
At the wrong time.
Their life would have turned out fine.

As she placed the rose upon the diary page
Growing inside of her was a sense of rage.
Why can life be so cruel, and people so full of hate?

But looking at the rose, her heart started to melt
Relieving her of all the anger she felt.
Their love for each other was “ oh so pure”
Of a happy life together she was sure.

Life can be comical, and you never know
What it will bring.
But she got pregnant doing her thing.

Then one night when she fell asleep
Into her mind he did creep
And told her these words:
Now you have three things I left behind
My love, a rose, and a child of mine.

When she awoke, she knew he did not die in vain
For he left a part of himself to relieve her pain.

Pacabells cannon starts to play. The gates open and everyone looks my way. Beautiful black and red roses line the red carpet that leads to you. You look amazing tonight too. I look at my white dress as I step into the setting sun. The light catches the black sparkles and roses on my dress and makes me look beautiful, makes me feel like one. A black rose on this beautiful LA sand. A black rose that belongs to a wonderful man. I slowly walk down the aisle. I walk up to you and I smile. There's black and red roses on the alter and I get up ther. I can smell their sweet fregrance in the warm evening air. The paster starts as I look at you. You say you vouls and I say mine too. You say "I do," and I do the same too. You slip yet another beautiful ring on my finger and kiss me so sweetly. We hold hands and walk back down the beautiful rose lined aisle.


We walk to the peir where there are beautiful lights hung up everywhere. I spin to look at the beauty and you lean in close to me and say, "wait here." You walk up to the DJ and request and smile as a familure tune comes on. I continue to smile and I take your hand. you walk me back out onto the beautiful sand.  "Our first dance," you say. My smile gets bigger when I here Amazed starts to play. You pull me closer to you as we start to move from side to side. My nourvousness is hard to hide. "You okay beautiful?" you ask softly as you gently run your hand through my hair. "Yeah baby, I'm fine," I say as I see people gather around and stare. We dance and we sway sweetly and quietly. We kiss and dance slowly. We kiss again and you start to sing along with the song. I've been waiting for this day, I've been waiting so long.


We'r walking on the beach again. hand in hand. you still in your tux, I'm still in my dress. This is our future. Together. Forever. The setting sun catches my ring. It shines brightly. "I love you," I say and we kiss again. "I love you too," you say and gently pick me up.

You carry me back up to the house. You carry me up sairs and lay me on our bed. You lay beside me and gently kiss my head.

We lay there and talk for hours and hours. We smile and laughas our future stretches on in front of us.

Your Lover (Part III)

                     Listen to your lover as he comes, gazing in your windows, peering 
through the lattice, leaping across your mountains and bounding over your hills 
like a gazelle or young stag in your garden orchard of pomegranates with choice 
fruits, with henna and nard, saffron, calamus and cinnamon with every kind of 
incense tree with myrrh and aloes, and all the finest spices streaming with wells 
of flowing water that go down from Lebanon; I am drenched with dew as I cry out- 
I call to you, arise my darling, my beautiful one and come with me.  Let us roam 
the countryside and go into the fields.  Let us spend the night in the villages and 
go early to the vineyards to see if the vines have budded, if their tender grapes do 
appear, if the pomegranates are in bloom as the mandrakes send forth their 
fragrance at our gates.  There will I give you all manner of pleasant fruit, and 
there I will give you more love until the day breaks and the shadows flee.  You 
have given me your vineyard, now all in my kingdom is yours.  So come, come 
away upon the spice-laden mountains and receive my love.
	I will love you and give myself for you.  I will love you as myself, even 
as my own body, for he who loves his wife loves himself.  So, I will nourish you; I 
will clothe you; I will carefully protect you from danger, spot and wrinkle to present 
you in glorious splendor.  I will cherish you for you are my body, and I am your 
head.  Take care of me as your own.  I give you honor with your reverence as we 
both submit ourselves one to another in the fear of God, and many waters will not 
quench our love, neither will the floods drown it, for its coals are the coals of fire, 
as the vehement flame of God that none would dare try to put asunder what God 
has joined together, and our threefold chord will not be broken.  With Jesus, you 
and me, we have security, help, warmth, and strength.  So, let us give thanks 
always for everything to our God and Father in the name of Jesus our Lord for His 
Spirit, one another and this day and each day that we can come together and 
rejoice and exhilirate each other with love and happiness.  May our peace be 
forever and ever in love.

The Wedding

As she prepares herself for the day of blessing,
She can hear these people singing,
The day of happiness,
The day of joy,
The day that is so gifted,
And not a soul can destroy.

This is the day she has been waiting for all her life,
The day he puts the ring on her finger,
To become his wife.

This day is filled with the smell of blossoms,
This wedding day will never be forgotten.

As she poses in the mirror,
She feels a shiver,
Forgetting the rest,
She questions herself,
Is this really happening?
Or am I imagining?
I’m sitting alone in this room,
Where is my Groom?

As they take her to be wed,
All she can think about all the things he said,
All the promises he made,
She can’t believe it,
They are being fulfilled today.

Not wanting to think about anything but him,
She knows her dreams are coming true.
She is ready to leave her past behind,
She doesn’t want to think about pressing rewind.

All those silly things she did as a kid,
She will for sure miss.
But, now she will began a new life,
Not thinking about the past,
She will put that aside.

After the day she gets wed,
She will have a whole new life ahead,
To promise to love and care for him until she dies,
She loves him with her heart and soul; she cannot deny.

Meaning of Your Love

My thoughts are of your touch upon my skin
Off went proverbial fireworks exploding within me.
Sleepy and slumberous and so very sated,
and not only in my eyes but in my heart, my soul,
 my entire being.
I look into your beautiful eyes.
Wondering if the flowers feel loved,
and with a loving touch, a spell is cast! 

 When our eyes first met,
I loved everything about you.
I have awoken to a love that will last.

Forever Beloved

Knees pulled to my chest so tightly, eyes clenched closed suppressing tears
Hidden in darkness my heart beats for only you in this cold drenched life
I thought I was purely alone, but your hand was always upon my shoulder 
You guided me from the pain and hurt others placed upon me in my past
No one else was there to hold me in this wretched world I live in, but you
I was showed a small light that grew over time and warmed my pale body 
In exchange I wrapped my arms around you and kept you forever in my sight
We became one and I left everything I ever knew so I could be in your life
Slowly my body relaxes in your embrace as well as the times you are in my own
My eyes never turn away from your own eyes as I look deeper into your heart
Be with me forever, it’s all I ask of; your love and your warmth in my now undying 
Thank you for giving me a reason to live on and not stay in the darkness with the 
I proudly call myself yours and that I love you wholeheartedly; this feeling will 
never end

Harmony in Marriage (ABC poem)

Anxious brides carry doubt,
Each female,
Greets him intoxicated,
Joining kingdoms love,
Men now obedient,
Pre qualify responses,
Staying tomorrow united,
Victorious women,
Xerox yearlong zeal.

I am sure this will strike up some controversy,,for sure...Maybe and then again maybe not !!!

move in with her,
move with her from the apt. to a house,
move from rent to a mortgage,
got a lil’ green lawn that he cuts when in
his shorts/beer on Saturday,
flirts with the MILF across the street,
gets a dog & talks to him more than
“his woman”---
uses the word “*****” 
more frequently, as the wedding grows near,
then abstaining for a clear month just before that
“blessed event”---
puts up a white picket fence round his lil’ lawn
when they get back from the honeymoon &
after she finds out she’s pregnant,
he sits down to write out what his son will become,
because that is what works with the plan,
he’s got to have a son,
because there are things that he didn’t take the time
to do,
which his son will do &
there are things that he had a short ambition for & then wrote off,
which his son will run the long run on &
accomplish &
if she has a daughter,
well, then, she will have 
another & if she won’t, if she can’t,
he’ll “convince her” or he’ll 
trade her in &
as his thinking begins to grow darker,
as he begins to spin his webs 
behind the television that’s always on &
the white picket fence,
he’s just perfectly ready to become a father,
to condemn someone who
never had a chance.

Second Promise

Each day soars by us longing to be caught
Just to be noticed
If I could stop time and be in your arms
Then time would be ours

Each and every moment would be cherished
As if it were the first, the last
Love would never be taken for granted
But appreciated and given without condition

Trouble and sadness would be replaced with excitement
For the time that is ours and is surely to come
Because from this day forward I promise to you
That our time is real and is simply waiting for us

To notice

Wedding dress

She loves the dress
It fits so perfectly right
She’s happy going to bed now 
She will sleep In peace tonight

He’s packing his luggage
Coming from the usa
He is so excited 
Can’t wait for his wedding day

She wakes up this morning
She feels a pain in her chest
Gone to the doctor 
He Send her for some test

They talk on the phone
She sound so tired to night 
He said sweet dreams love you
But he knows something's not right

She picks up the dress
Open the closet door
Has to go to the doctor
Appointment at four

He takes a taxi to the airport
Now he sits in the plane
Can’t wait to hug her
Feel her in his arms again

The doctor says sit down
Got the results for the test
You got cancer and it has 
Spread though out her chest

He’s thinking of her 
He love her so much
He wants to wake next to her
Forever feeling her touch

We have no time to waste 
Need to operate right away
Trying to save her life
But she died that day

He was greeted with sad faces
He holds his head and screams
The wedding dress in the closet
Was suppose to start their dreams

At her burial he falls on the casket
Hugs it hang his head and cries
As the thunder cracks
And rain falls from the skies

He drove his car over a cliff
because his life was a living hell
the priest say she went to heaven
And become an angel

And there’s wedding dress
Behind a closet door
With very special meaning
never to be wore

Not all in this life
Ends like we want it to
Thank you for reading my poem
very special friend i love you

Your Lover (Part I)

                     Dark am I like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon; 
yet, I am lovely- coming up from the desert in a column of smoke perfumed with 
myrrh and incense made from spices wearing my crown.  I have come to seal 
you upon my heart, so arise my love.  Show me your face.  Let me hear your voice 
for your voice is sweet and your face is lovely.  Be my queen.  You have made my 
heart rejoice.  Let me kiss you with the kisses of my mouth that you may know my 
love is more delightful than wine.  Come away with me; I will lead you.  Let me 
take you... into my chambers.
	Precious and of great price in our house of stone, made of cedar 
beams and rafters of fir, behold our bed- the chamber for our love.  Threescore 
valiant warriors shall guard it about being expert in war holding flaming swords 
because of the fear in the night.  Our marriage bed is carved of the wood of 
Lebanon with four pillars of silver with golden bases.  Its interior is inlaid with 
gifts of love for you and me alone.  It's covered and surrounded by a canopy of 
purple for this time of rapture.  Let me remove your flowing robe and caress your 
body.  Hold me and do not let me go.  Let me be a sachet of myrrh resting 
between your breasts, and as a cluster of henna blossoms from the vineyards of 
En Gedi.  Let us drink each other's wines, which go down sweetly and cause our 
lips to speak, even as we sleep.
	As we sleep, you are flesh of my flesh and bone of my bones.  Eye to 
eye and nose to nose, we two are one in body, soul and spirit, and I will always 
love you and cleave unto you, my wife.  I will live joyfully with you all my days, for 
you are as the loving hind and pleasant roe; gracefully, you captivate my heart.  
You take my breath away.  Does your heart pound for me?  I knock for you.  Open 
for me.  Tell me, Is your lover outstanding?  Am I charming, though our bed is 
verdant?  Tell me so.  What do you see?  Is your lover far better than others?  Tell 
me so.  Am I the fairest among ten thousand?

Moorgate to Temple, Circle Line

There is a man sitting opposite
In a red and black striped shirt.
His eyes are a little mincey
And his forehead frowns
Of its own accord.
He smells a bit like Christmas.
He is not a summer man.
He is married.
His wedding day was happy,
Many friends attended.
He was young and now he is old
And the wedding ring grows inwards
As the wrinkles expand.
His hair is thinning.
When he looks in the mirror
He is a little shocked.
But his infant depression
Is distracted by the smell of autumn
Leaves outside.
He is going to a lover,
He has that pretence about him.
But his hands betray some intelligence
Which his small and wonky nose destroys.
The best thing is
That he has no idea
I am writing this.
I don’t like his shoes.
I will stop now.
It seems awfully mean.

If nine lives are to be lived
I feel I’ve lived them all
Since I last saw your face
If a man dies a thousand deaths
I feel I’ve died them all
Since I last felt your lips
If looking is forever
Then I’ve seen eternity
Since last I saw your eyes
If the sky never ends
Neither will father time
Until I hold you once again
If time flies by
So too it was
With you and I
For the moments I held you
Were far to mere
There’s no place for me
That doesn’t hold your face
The sunrises and sunsets
Only remind me
Of the wind blowing through your hair
When I breathe the morning air
There’s nothing but your scent
Rising everywhere
If words make a man foolish
Then such a fool am I
For the only thing I speak of
Is my open heart and soul
And yours
Is the only voice I hear

Love Is

Love is a rainbow mirrored in the sky
Its free, its beautiful and tells no lies

A gleaming reflection
Upon the still of a pond
The dewy mist on a freshly cut lawn

Love is a sanctuary for our innermost fears
A tiny capsule to hold all of our tears

A symbol of beauty, rare to be found
Its strength and convictions
Knows no bounds

Love is the touch of our first newborn
So soft, so delicate, so easy to adore

An unconditional consenting of souls
An awareness, a spirit, unique to its own

Love soothes and heals though cannot be bought
An eternal commitment so widely sought

Love is a truth and blossoms for few
A necessity of life, a uniting of hearts
A palette so stunning, so beautiful and new

Love is how I feel for you.

Masked Man

I remember that night so long 
ago yet it feels as if tonight. 
You strolled into the room 
music was playing. 

A boy not all man yet and 
you were in no hurry had 
no worry was just out 
for the evening. 

You stole away with 
my heart that night under 
the warm July skies 
with that provocative smile. 

We walked awhile for a mile or 
so and learned all the things 
that made each of us tick. 

You were laid back and 
I was so mellow. 
We came and went well 
together back then. 

You were wild and untamed 
I was gentle and bridled 
in your cowboy spell. 

I fell totally for you that 
night masked man. 
But you were wild and 
so untamed like a 

You wanted to roam 
I wanted a home for 

July nights greet me 
now with your provocative 
smile in the warm breezes 
I shiver and quiver so 
longing still for you 
masked man. 

I watch the direction 
you rode out into 
that night. 
My heart rides out 
every now and then 
to see if you... 
remember too. 

This Saturday December 15th I am making memories on my life big time My birthday and now
My wedding day. No Name change the masked man came home to stay {Micheal}  sorry for all
the time away these past few weeks been wedding planning. With Christmas and Holiday tasks
and now the wedding  it takes most of my time.  Will catch up commenting all your

I think about when we first met; it’s etched in your mind as well 
I bet.
Checking out your sexy smile; it was on my mind for quite a 
You said hello with uncertainty; could you be an Angel who was sent 
here to me?
I couldn’t talk and was somewhat speechless; I was unprepared 
I have to confess. 
I felt real nervous and completely out of place; I’m sure it was written 
all over my face.
I thought that maybe I should remain quiet; I was acting shy but 
you wouldn’t buy it.
You turned and smiled as you walked away; I thought about you for 
the rest of the day.
I wondered if we would meet again; I believed we would but wondered 
I met you again at the very same spot; you were dressed quite sexy and 
was looking real hot.
This time I spoke to you with lots of confidence; I knew you wouldn’t go 
for that silent nonsense.
I was hoping to at least get your phone number; if I couldn’t do that 
it would be such a bummer!
We sat at a table and conversed for a while; I can honestly say I liked 
your style.
We decided to set up another date; I thought you might just be my Soul 
We have been a couple for a very long time; I will ask for your hand 
so that you can be mine.
We have had some times that I won’t forget, and I still day dream about 
“when we first met.”

Come and share with me

Yes you are welcome
Where do you want to come ?
To my apartment or to my life ?
What do you really need?

My apartment is so small
My life is so big
Come to my life 
And live in my apartment

I will give you shelter
You get protection from the terrible winter
Hot summer won't bother you anymore
You can watch the falling snow through the window

I will take you out on the spring days
We will walk through the streets on the fall days
Come and see what more I have for you
It is better to experience than just think about it 
We two together will create miracles
We will open the mysteries of life
So come without thinking too much
You can share life and room with me

She Came...They Went (A Love Story)

Long black ribbon tied in a bow around his neck, 
handsomely he stood there...waiting
Hair neatly pulled back in a ‘french twist’,  small 
band with two feathers and a tiny veil about her 
head...gracefully, she came

She came...they went

The journey would not be easy...they both knew it...
but...there was love...
Then, there was God...and God’s love grew 

Percentages said it wouldn't last

Mountains of blessings...valleys of disappointment...
oceans of God's faith, they weathered the storms...
42 years......together

You'll Know It's Him

When she finds the right man she'll understand,
You'll feel everything coming from the heart of your land,
Stop the whining, and crying say what's really on your chest,
Start planning, and getting ready to say what’s needed to confess,
When you find him you'll know it's him,
From the edge of your soul the edge of your heart and mind at the very brim,
Most guys are still learning from their mistakes,
Most guys you need to teach them what it takes,
Tell him how to treat you the way you want to be treated,
Tell him to watch, listen, and learn what you yearn, for him to be seated,
Just follow your heart you'll know it when it’s him,
You'll know it deep down in your inner loves rim,
When you follow your heart and found the right guy it changes directions in which it 
For you found that man of yours I promise you your heart will skip a beat,
And when you see him from the right side the right angle,
A halo and wings sprout, you feel a little bit of heaven as you turn into an angel,
The other guys had your head tight but with him it should feel neat,
You remember that missing part of the puzzle ... well he's the missing piece,
And if you were to really follow your heart with the guidance of cupid,
You'll realize that we had the arrows and love can make two even feel stupid,
When your eyes are out of cupids love trance I am for sure you will see,
For I can't wait until you can because your heart lead you straight to me.

Just a story

The cold of the winter bites 
As she hurried walk home
The bus was late tonight
She don’t like to be out alone

She got out her keys
Lock the door behind her
Sits with a hot cup of tea
And covers on the sofa

Same time across the city
Another girl wasn't lucky as her
She works the night shift
But her life will change forever

On the subway platform
She was pulled by two men
Who had their way with her?
And left her never to be mend

She was found by a passer by
She awake in the hospital
And was question by police
But she never remember it all

She couldn't go back to work
She was never the same after
She decides leaves the city 
And go live with her mother

One morning she got so sick
When she smells deodorant
So she went to doctor
Turns out she was pregnant

She sits in MacDonald s
Thinking over a cup of coffee
Didn't I had normal life
Why this did happens to me

What is she going to do now?
She’s pregnant for rapist
Her mother was supportive
Saying you will get through this

She spoke to the local priest
Who said this is an innocent life
She always wishes to be pregnant
When she is some one wife

She decided to have an abortion
And was opening the clinic door
She ran into an old school friend
Hasn’t seen for ten years or more

He ask her out to lunch
And started talking of day gone by
She told him about her situations
And he hugs her when she cries

He told of his crush for her
And it has never gone away
Ask her to marry him
And he become a father that day

They both stand clap proudly
As they watch him graduate
Then all went out to Manhattan
And had dinner to celebrate

Jesus Is A True Foundation For Your Marriage

As a child, in church, I was raised.
Taught the Bible 
and the Christian ways.

At an early age, I invited Jesus in.
Learning what was right 
and what was sin.

I looked up to my parents--I really did.
I was so proud of the
way they lived.

They were the world to me--
I was so proud.
Then one day there appeared 
a very dark cloud.

This cloud hovered over my parents, 
whom I loved so dear.
Soon the ugly face of divorce
was soon to appear.

I prayed for them-
I desperately tried.
The many nights I lay 
awake and cried.

How could this happen?
 I often wondered.
To have a wonderful marriage
so utterly plundered.

A sin crept in--and was
allowed to prevail.
Soon this marriage 
began to fail.

Let this be a warning to me and to all.
Playing with sin will cause us to fall.

If your life is heading 
toward a separation,
build your marriage on Jesus--
a true foundation! 

He can Do what no 
other power can do...
And give NEW meaning
 to the words; "I LOVE YOU!"

Several weeks of flirting,
Two back massages,
Asking for a date,
Trip to dinner and Wal-Mart,
Sneak of a kiss over shoulder,
Asking for a second date,
Several dating times,
More kisses and hugs,

Remembering date of first date,
Valentines Day flowers,
Special poem for her,
Asking for hand
Wedding day,
Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,

struck by lightning

You were like lightning
That hit me while driving
You spilled all over my senses

To say I was electrified
Is an understatement

Because now i sit and write
Silently wonder about 
My time with you

Where do I go from here
After the occurance
Of you
is gone

Do I pull up my baggy pants and

Fake out my own mind
That nothing occured
Thereby waiting for sleep
To make soft the blow

So that
The shape and the memory
Of your face
Becomes some distorted
Warp in the memory of my dreams

When I said too much 
And you gave a chuckle

As if to say good-bye

And we hit the reset button
For an resplendant reprise

A True Friend

Is one who understands where you have been,
Accepts who you have become and
Loves you unconditionally as you are.

They does not wish you "luck"
As you step out into the unknown...
They walks into the void by your side.
They will not offer distractions
Nor easy advice in your time of need...
Instead she will pray for wisdom,
Born of compassion and a willingness
To take your pain upon herself.

Such a friend will always speak of you
When you are not present, as though you were,
And though they may not always share your
Sunny days, they will always be there to help
You through the stormy ones.

They is not skeptical of your blooming
Nor jealous of your shining apart from her,
For they seeks not to steal your joy,
But to multiply it.

It has been well said that there is no
Greater love than this...
For a true friend does not take life from
You, they gives you thier own.

A heart is like very fine china,drop it to hard and it will shatter.
Like a bag full of marbles,one hole and it will scatter.
A fine line between friendship and love.
Sometimes we cross that line with sentimental words from above.
People with kind hearts,that meet face to face.
People that meet,even in a strange place.
Pick up the pieces of that last broken heart,
Put them together so they never come apart.
Mend them together with the thread of love,
By the needle god sends from up above.
So hold out your hands and be husband and wife,
Never forget your vows,through happiness and strife.

Alter Drama

Narrowly down the aisle
Right in from the ancient doors
Elegantly they walked in
In the nuptial knot attire

In the messiah’s mansion
Laid central securedly held
With ornamented holds of the colonnades
Gloriously dignified terrestrial footstool

Down below overlaid
Imposing array of Persian art
Suspended high above
Morning sky ceiling 

Now here they stood
Before the throne of grace
Fetishly in the nuptial ritual
I DO chorused both, TILL DEATH DO US PART

Last act, final scene
Soliloquized, masqueraded monk
Solemnly rent the joyous arena

Still as the lay of the night
To the audibility of eloquent silence 
Echoed mischievous silence mediator

Flashback faded dim of the dark days
Unveiled the unkempt the frame 
Deep beyond the soul grave 
A sure hope dashed the wall

Sprawled the bride bade farewell in coma
“JOB” stood and look lunatically
Altered the altar drama.

First off, let me start off with an open statement
Let's not be naive anymore, sex before marriage is OVERrated
Your flesh takes OVER ya spirit, but he already came OVER your house
and now after u gave OVER your goods, he already wants out
but rewind.....the SEX is OVER so what's next?!
the dude who was all OVER you says that "friendship" is best?
the same dude that was in your bed cOVER 5 minutes ago
I bet he looks at you differently now, he pegged you as a h.....
and you know that aint true, but your mind is OVERclouded,
so now you question your worth in this world...yeah you OVER doubting
and now you contemplating OVER AND OVER again you dont know what went wrong
You gave a piece of your soul to him....consider it dead and gone
your mind is OVERloaded from all the guilt and pain
You wish you could do it OVER again, but this time it would change
please realize
You too beautiful to be going through all the stress and strain
You thought he was the one, thought he was your lOVER
but now he's OVER you....and he's on to another
you don't really need this , your life is torn in pieces
it's not too late beautiful, give your life OVER to Jesus
he would never hurt you, he would never take your soul
he'll take your emptiness away, he'll make you whole; OVERflow
YOU have the power to OVERcome, be cOVERed in his blood
you need a makeOVER so get cOVERed in his love
God will OVERride your sin, cause flesh was OVER you
so go ahead and repent for your sexual is long OVERdue

Forever-Part 3

We get off the plane and smell the lovely air. Hawaii. One of the most beautiful places. I look at you and smile. "This place is beautiful," I say, spinning around. "Yes, it is," you say and pull me close. "I love you," I say. I love you too," you say and kiss me. Hand in hand we walk into the setting sun.

The sun's poking through the shades in our room. "Good morning beautiful," you say when I open my eyes. "Good morning," I say and smile. "I've got a surprise for you," you say and smile. I look at you questionably. "Just get dressed and I'll show you." "Okay."

You take my hand and lead me down to the beach. "I heard you've always wanted to do this," you say and smile. You point to two goals. My face lights up. "Sand soccer," I say happily and look at you. You kiss me and smile, "I figured you'd like it." We walk down to the two goals and we'r e put on a team. We play for hours and hours.

When the game is over, we sit on the sand by the shore. "That was fun," I say and look at you. "Yeah, it was," you say and lean in and kiss me. "I love you," I say as you warp your arms around me. "I love you too," you say and smile. We watch the sun set on the beautiful sea before we head back to our room.

The next day we surf. We surf for hours. "This is great baby," you say as we sit on our boards. "Yeah," I say and smle, "you must really like doing this," I say and brush a srand of hair from your face. "Yes," you say and you lean in and kiss me.

Our Wedding Day

It was June 1st, 2002
that's the day I married you

We were united by a J.O.P.
but that didn't really matter to me

No written vows,just a few words to say
it was still our wedding day

With our Til Death Do Us Aparts
that's when we gave our hearts

He then announce us by husband and wife
it was the start of our new life

A certifiicate of marriage, two rings on hand
in front of family and friends, there we stand

We didn't have no white doves or any rice
no centerpiece made of ice

Lots of pictures were taken in the hall
lots of hugs and kisses from what I can recall

We had a little gathering, a party afterwards
they wanted me to speak but I had no words

We cut the cake and I fed her the first slice
Everyone grabbed a cold beer that was on ice

A simple wedding it turned out to be that day
with just two little words we had to say

The Day Part 2

the day we say i do
i know that my biggest dreams had came true
the way i feel when i'm with you is unreal
the way we touch sending chills all over
those tender kisses that tend to linger on my lips
the warmth of your hugs
the smell of you body wash
it all drives me insane
the way you sleep so snug and cozy
so warm so close
so sweet so nice
i know in my heart that I want to be your wife.
I'd cook for you
I'd clean for you
belive me baby I'd do anything for you
message your feet & rub your back
I'd even drawl up your bath
I tell you over and over again
as long as your my man
I'm willing to lend a helping hand
I'd do anything for you
I can't wait till the day we say I do
becasue I know deep within my heart
how much 
I'm so in love with you..

Uncommonly good.

Uncommonly good, 
This taste on my lips that I should,
Devour, delight without hesitate.
A cup of bliss that I hate.

Another round of wine,
A spoonful of something divine,
A kiss,
A scent that I miss.

Bitterly cold,
In every stare that we hold.
What is behind the mask,
A question noone dare to ask.

It is more than silly,
But it's just a thought,
A slight detour I should sought?

Sunrise is peeking,
Time is ticking,
Oh how I wish I could stay,
Hold your hand as we sway.

Cloud is waving,
Moon is hiding,
As we bid farewell,
As I walk on the path I know well.

wedding dress

wedding dress

she loves the dress
it fits so right
she,s going to sleep 
in  peace tonight

he's packing his luggage
coming from the usa
he is so excited 
can,t wait for his wedding day

she wakes up this morning
she feels a pain in her chest
gone to the docter and he
send her to do some test

they talk on the phone
she sound so tired to night 
he said sweet dreams i love you
but he knows something's not right

she picks up the dress
open the closet door
has to go to the docter
appointment at  four

   check in at the counter
now he sits in the plane
can't wait to hug her
 feel her in his arms again

the doctor says sit down
got the results for the test
you got cancer and it has 
  spread though  out her chest

he.s thinking of her 
he love her so much
he wants to wake up forever
feeling her touch

no time to waste 
we have to operate right away
trying  to save her life
but she died that day

he sits at her tomb
and how he cries
as thunder cracks
and rain falls from the skies

he commited suicide
and went straight to hell
she went to heaven
and become an angel

and there,s wedding dress
behind a closet door
with special meaning
never to be wore

not all in life
end like we want it to
thank you for reading my poem
the whole thing thru

Heart Beats

My heart is beating faster than usual. 
It knows that you will soon enter it again. 
It knows that I will be seeing you soon. 
It pounds faster, faster, and faster. 
You can almost see it pounding. 
My heart is about to burst. 
But instead it breaks. 

My heart does not beat anymore. 
It is broken into pieces. 
It is broken because of you. 
You and all your heartless lies. 

Now your begging me to forgive you. 
I want to so badly. 
Because my heart is still broken, 
but no one seems to know it. 

No one seems to want to heal it. 
I tell you this. 
You say you want to, 
but how can I belive you. 

You said you can heal it, 
because you are the one who broke it. 
so you offered me your hand, 
and I took it. 

You said you will always love me, 
is that why im standing here on my wedding day? 
with you by my side, 
saying our I do's.

Unions Of Love

I've longed for a man to have and to hold,
To love me forever, being brave and bold.
Someone to cherish and stay by my side,
With this man truly I'll always abide.

I've longed for a woman, tender and wise,
Who doesn't hold secrets in the depths of her eyes.
Someone whose word is always true,
With this woman happiness will ensue.

We've now found each other, our union is strong,
We now know that this is where we each belong.
Unions like ours must indeed be rare,
So with our love we shall take extra care.

When this life is over and we start again,
Maybe next time we'll be each other's friend.
You've enriched my life beyond any measure,
So in whatever form you're always my treasure!

"Still Running From You"

"Still Running From You"

i am barely dressed
in my dreams of you  
simple raw to the sexiest man 
i have ever known   

do i  want 
to get undress for you 
under darkness 
were love seem so real
here your voice 
cry out to me 
feel your body,
move so violently  
have you
infused inside of  me~    
your hands all over me

i must run
keeping my clothes on   
i want you
i  need you
things I want to say
under no light
but i don't 
i fear you~ 

i beg the most of me 
to hide from you

because if you knew 
how much i want 
to make love to you 

what would you do?? 

look at me in that way you do
with that deep long 
unblinking sire  
that says, if i kiss you............. 
kiss me, i beg it of you  
till i am necked under you 

i have to run , run from you 
you are alpha male  
raw deep lust 

because it is love for me? 
and it is lust for you? 

this is to confusing 
i must pray
run, as fast as my soul 
can carry me  

save myself 
because i am now condemn 
because if you knew 
all you have to do is 
kiss me~   

and I'd be necked under you~

Our Wedding Day

Today is our day to shine
To prove to the world that I am yours
And you are mine
The sun is out
The birds will sing
As you take my hand
I will accept your ring
Our hearts are entwined 
My love for you will always bind
Yesterday we were each a separate soul
Today we are united as a whole
For better or worse
Till death do we part
We are married today
And ready for a fresh and wonderful start
I said, "I do."
As you did too
From this day forward love me forever
As I will you

Lone Apple Tree

Let me be as the lone apple tree
Among the trees of the forest
That you found and sat down under.
With great delight,
You sat in its shadow;
For a taste of comfort,
You ate its sweet fruit
Until you were strengthened
Because you were faint with desire,
But I am faint with love for you.
So, take me now to your lone apple tree,
Peculiar among all other trees,
And with great joy under its shadow,
Let us sit and recline
And there awaken love,
As you raise me up;
Refresh yourself
For when I am roused, 
You will be stayed, strengthened 
With words fitly spoken;
Keep me as the apple of your eye.

Lord tells you on wedding day

Lord tells you on your wedding day......
I will make the sun shine bright on your wedding day
and I will make your night as a beautiful and peaceful one
I will make the heaven to throw his blessings to you
and I will show you how much I love you my son

Today is your wedding day and its the most beautiful day for you
A man and a woman promise each other in front of me to live together forever
and an oath of life between both of you can not be broken till the end
Trust each other and make your journey to the greatest love

Have a faith on me then I will protect you in many ways
and I will make your life worth to live the way you want to do so
Show your availability by coming to this church for prayers
and I will show you my ability through my precepts my son

Always, have a kind word for those who needs help
Always, give your heart for those who loves me
Always, make others to understand my strength and power
Always, have a hearty appetite to follow my steps my son

Today is your wedding day and its the most happiest day for you
Let the rest of your life be the best of life with my blessings
Walk with me my son I will clear all those rough path ways
and I will make you to reach a life without falling into any sins

The Dress

On your racks I see the same dress over and over,
Might as well buy the one I saw at Wise Buys
I want a halter top with Swarvoski Crystals,
You tell me it'll be impossible to find,
Sweetheart neckline with form fitting satin to thighs,
I want a hi low hemline,
Also impossible?
My patience is on a thin line....

My lucky day,
Thank you De La Rosas,
I show you my drawing of a dress,
You quickly were able to fulfill my request,
After months of searching and trying on,
My dream has been satisfied, now there's nothing wrong

Forever-Part 4

We get off the plane, back in LA. We drop our stuff off at home and go out for the day.


You wait outside the bathroom door. "Baby," I say. You stop breathing. "What is it?" I slowly open the door. "Yes." I say and smile. "Yes!" you scream and pick me up. You spin me around and kiss me.

9 months later I step out of the car. 3 of us this time. Isavella. Our first daughter. "She looks just likeher mom," you say and smile. "With her daddy's eyes," I say and look at you. "I love you," you say. "I love you too," I say and gently kiss me.


We're older now we've made it a long way. We sit on the deck and watch the sun set. "All or nothing," I say and hold your hand. "All or nothing," you say and lead me down to the sand. "30 years is a long time," you say to me and pull me close. " So is forever," I say. You hit play and Amazed comes on. "We'll make it that far, I swer," you say as we start to dance. We look at Isabella playing in the sand. "I know baby," I say and smile.

We'll last forever. Nothing will break us. We'll always be together.

Together forever.

Just One Last Waltz

The cowboy took her in his arms
and waltzed her round the floor.
He told her how much he loved her
how he couldn't love her more.

From the moment he first saw her
when he'd held her in his arms,
he'd vowed to keep her safe
from any kind of harm.

They talked about the days just past
when she had climbed up on his knee
about the time he hung her swing
up in an old pine tree.

The first horse that he had bought her
a paint gelding she called"Friend."
They had some fine adventures
and she could ride him like the wind.

Somehow, someplace his little cowgirl
had become a woman grown
and today was her grand wedding day
she was no longer his alone.

They waltzed around the room once 
more a tear was in his eye,
"Oh, Daddy, don't you do that or you're
gonna make me cry!"

He whispered, "You're the darling of my heart, 
I just wanted you to know."
As he held her close just one last time
it was hard to let her go.

He took her hand and he gave her
to the young cowboy by her side
who had stole away his baby girl
this lovely glowing bride.

But, he whispered as she turned away
"I love you, I hope you'll always know...
and then he turned and blew a kiss
and then he let her go.

We Stand Together

Who would have thought
We'd be standing here today
This road was hard fought
We made it anyway

Now we stand before God
And we start our new life
As we battle the odds
I'm glad to become your wife

I vow to love you
You vow to love me
To honor and cherish
And to love eternally

As man and woman 
We stand separate
As husband and wife
We stand together

Pandora's box

Zeus was very angry, 
So he devised a plan. 
A way to punish all mankind, 
To take the blood of man. 
He created a woman, 
Perfect in every way. 
She was blessed with many gifts, 
She would make man pay. 
Among the things that she'd been given, 
There was a box in her possession. 
She'd been warned not to lift the lid, 
She tried to do so in discretion. 
Many horrors bounded out, 
She tried to close the chest. 
But was impossible to do, 
And the world was put to test. 
Anger, greed, and lust, 
Were among the things departed. 
But hope also left that box, 
To heal the broken-hearted.

My heart will always belong to you no matter where you go,
And years will pass us by yet still our love will grow,
From the very first day we meet inside I knew you'd be,
The man who would complete my life and love only me,
Yes at first we had our downs and I thought we were through,
I guess god had his eyes on us cause he lead me back to you,
I can't believe it's been two years and still our love is strong,
I never thought dreams could come true until you proved me wrong,
In this time we've built a life you, me and our baby girl,
I Love you with all my heart I'll shout it to the world,
I'll always be true to you and never intend to lie,
I promise to hold you close and never say goodbye,
You'll forever be my husband, my lover and my best friend,
I swear to love you for the rest of my life until forever ends,
For now and always you'll be the king of my life,
As I continue to be your queen and number one wife!

 Come and go
Never seeing them until it hits
Never able to get it back
Not able to stop it from coming
That is life, 
Do not let that slip away
Remember that is kids too
One minute they are in your arms
Looking at you
Needing you 
Knowing you will protect
And in a blink of an eye
They don’t need you 
So they say
They fall
You swoop them up
Now you look at them
Watch them walking down that aisle
Both turn around, holding hands
That kid, you held is now
Taking care of themselves 
And their spouse 
That kid you held
Now is holding their own

A Sonnet for Nimmy & Muki (2005)

Solitude ends on the day of marriage
The past is left behind and the future journeys from your carriage

Happiness and strife go hand in hand
All apart of life from wherever you stand

The ring on your finger symbolises the connection in your heart
Though times can be tough that connection will never part

You were both destined no doubt before you were born
To a fresh beginning on the horizon of a new dawn

You’re the gardeners for a new family sowing
Water daily with love and you will see the future growing

Love is the strength to guide you on
You will never know how much love is worth until it is gone

So many paths cross but you hold the key
Destined to be yours because Nimmy and Muki were always meant to be

I Wed Thee

The eyes of God are in these eyes standing here when I look at you. 
My salvation! You’re honest and true crying real teardrops of heartfelt tears.
As the Sun sets by night and rises to the dawning of our blessed brand new day, 
I Wed Thee to the very best of the all there’ll ever be of me.
I promise to cherish the smile upon your face and to conquer your early morning hidden fears
I promise to abide abundantly to a heavenly scent that comes from me through you,
Forever I’m your lock and you my Master Key!
The eyes of God are in the eyes of you!
My breath, my life, and all of my existing meaning, 
I do Wed the “Most Honorable Husband in Thee”!
As the Moon lights the evening skies and fulfills these promising days, 
I Wed Thee to everything God ever meant for you in this world to be.
I promise to adore your brilliance and to magnify your streaks of gold in the Sun’s blinding glare! 
I Wed Thee to a most promising brand New prospering Year!
I promise to Love, Honor, and Respect your wisdom for many lives that shall follow and proceed! 
Following you, I am always so very close when you’re near.
I Wed Thee and by these hands we shall forever be blessed and correctly fed.
I Wed Thee, by my God given name and I now declare our all a final by being done and said!

Thee One Forever

Thee Embracement I feel with each touch
Incredible feelings I have wanted so Much
Wonderful feelings between You and I
A wonderful but wonder, could it be a lie
So I lay down my guard and open my Heart
And pray to Thee Lord that only Love will start.
Wishing two bodies could become One
With a tear that falls each after their done
Letting go to hurt from the past
And say a prayer to the future that it will last
Each hug you offer warmth to my Soul
A Love, One Love that the good book told
In cowmen yes we have with one another
In cowmen we have will you forever be my Lover
Forever and always may The Lord Bless You
In understanding that I’m fallen for you
A worm Heart is all I see so far It’s your Heart
That I will Forever need  
My Love my Sweet Love
I wish you could feel my mind
With the words its ok and you will forever be kind
My age you say it may concern
But with the right teacher I could learn
Patients I need and Wisdom I seek
I find in you the One to teach
 And all I say is in good faith and prayer
Because another Heartache I could not bear
So I leave on your mind this One thing 
This feeling now makes my Soul wants to sing
Just no that I could be The One, 
Forever One to Love You Completely

The preparation has begun
gifts are being gathered
the invitations have been sent
and the collections of sweet things
and things desirable and pretty
the wedding feast for your Son
you have robed him 
with the garments of Glory
and fitted a government for a King
the grain is being gathered
into the storehouse
and their bread shall never perish
the blood of the grapes soon 
to be crushed
rejoice you guests and clothe yourselves
with garments fit for the wedding of the King
he has purified his bride
and arrayed her with costly robes
those things that only the Son can give
the chariots too he has prepared
to bring her into his kingdom
Rejoice oh heaven and all who dwell there
and habitation of nations
In majestic splendor will they enter 
The eternal Tabernacle
built without hands
to bring your praises
oh Most Sovereign Lord Jehovah

To Have and to Hold

You have some things
That I do not possess
That I need from you;
But will I be abased
And look to you to receive it
The way you will give it.

I have some things
That you do not hold
That you need from me;
But will you be humiliated
And look up to me to take it

The Garden Ceremony

Early evening, 
the sun descended slowly 
capturing the beauty of the surroundings.
Walking on,
the crowd gathered further down
for celebration of the love, the ceremony.
She was radiant,
compared to the flowers about,
she was a rose in a field of lilies and daphodils.
She smiled,
generating her own sunlight,
casting her beauty for the crowd to witness.
He waited.
With a joyful anticipation
He welcomed this beauty with a smile.

They turned,
together, facing each other
and facing the love of new tomorrows.
The sun descended,
but remained in the sky for them
casting new shadows of love on every tomorrow.

Child Corset

Whale-bone satchel hidden underneath
The husband comes in to take the sheath
From his wife, 
To pull away the knife.
Support this cradled strap
Call the cartographer for a map
To chart the followed Path,
Taken before by Plath.
Hold the chest
For this test 
Of love,
Of affection
From above,
This rejection
Holds still a toy
For a boy
And twirls 
For a girl.

Your Perfect To Me

Time has shown me, how special you are
My devotion to you is more than you can stand
Sometimes I question if you’re too good to be my man
Although I know I earned you honestly
I feel I’m not good enough for you, but you’re perfect to me

Everything I need is in you
Waiting for me to let it out
I want for nothing because of you
Our love fulfilled my drought

Your touch is like none other
It sends chills down my spine
Wanting you more and more
It’s been a very long while
But those brown eyes call to me
Whispering, B-jay & hesitantly I’m reminded
You’re perfect to me

Everything I need is in you
Waiting for me to let it out
I want for nothing because of you
Our love fulfilled my drought

I don’t know, I can’t explain exactly what it is
To some it up into words, couldn’t say what I feel
But if I must put it into words I’d say
I never saw it coming, and that you’re perfect to me

I’ll always be here
No matter what’s going on
Depend on the unknown
I’ll Stand alone
For you, I believe in
As for as my eyes can see
I don’t know what else to say but
You’re perfect to me

What I Want

what i want is
the kind of love that has to 
grow from the ground
one time , one season, one round
for just once
some of the best love that can be found
the best love to keep around
it is the kind of love that keeps secrets
the kind of love that tells lies
the kind of love where no one else matters
the kind of love that when it's over cries
it's time to know weather 
love lives or dies
it's time to know
did you tell the truth
or simply lie

Beauty (A.G.)

Sitting alone in the sand dreaming
The wind blowing, the waves crashing, it's all so beautiful
But despite all of this, my mind is fixed on you
Your eyes blue like the clear summer sky
Your smile even prettier than all the sunsets combined
This nature on the beach is nothing compared to you

Supreme Love

Everything is your kiss so divine and sweet
A touch of your hand is my only desire.
Our bodies embrace and the Angels sing.
My love is strong and till end of time.
Your face envelops my eyes of a dream.
A dream that is for real and forever kept.
Deep in my heart and soul, cherished so.
Every day our love is here and now.
Every year it grows beyond any limit.
My spirit commands that I love you dear.
My arms await the next embrace we share.
One sweet kiss from you is my eternity.
I pledge to fulfill our loves hold and more.
For you entered ecstasy into my design.
For you my dear are my love supreme.

A Toast to My Dad and His New Bride

Miss Mae, my Dad is a courageous and exciting man,
Who finds life a magnificent adventure.
But he is also a quiet and humble man
Of wholesome and simple pleasures.
You’ll nod your head thoughtfully when Dad shares his beliefs
‘Cause he responded when Jesus said, “Take up my yoke.”
And occasionally you’ll shake your head in disbelief
When he forgets the punch line of every single joke.

When he’s happy, you’ll know it by the warmth of his smile
And when he’s tired, he won’t hide it or try to pretend.
In a room full of guests, he’ll just turn off all the lights
And says good night and head off to bed.

If you’re not one who likes to share chores, I suggest…
Run from Dad if he asks you to bring him his bucket.
But Mae, if you’re ever in need of a proven hero, 
Run to my Dad arms…I promise, you won’t regret it.

Here’s a perfect example that should speak volumes
About the character of the man by your side:
He spent 34 years in a profession where he willingly
Would risk everything to save another’s life. 

You see he’s a man who puts others before himself
And will love and protect you through good times and bad.
He’s my Daddy, my mentor, Papa Tom to my children
And he’s the best friend that I’ve ever had.

My heart broke for you Dad, into a thousand pieces
When we lost Mom on that fateful day.
But today my heart sings for you with infinite joy
For fate leading you to someone so lovely as Mae.

I salute you Dad, for being my hero, 
A man I have so poorly tried to imitate.
And I honor you Mae, for being the woman
So richly blessing my Dad’s life as his mate.

So, now that you’re married and starting your journey
And have shared your vows and committed your hearts,
A Toast:
Dad and…Mom, may your worst days together
Be better than your best days apart.

Julio to Marylyn!!

I love just the way you are 

I don't want you to change 
your life for me.

Just wait a while, and soon 
you'll see.

I love you for more than 
what you are,

I love you for what you've done 
by far.

You've changed my life 
in many ways,

And brightened every one 
of my days.

I don't want you to think 
that you're nothing,

Because in my heart you're 
definately something.

More than something 

My baby and maybe 
soon to be.

Please stay the way you are, 
it's perfectly fine.

Sorry it's taking so long 
to call you mine.

Our day has finally come 
the day that we became one 
I waited All my life to see your face 
and the day we met was nothing 
but God's Amazing Grace 
I searched for you in every crowd 
as I yelled your name out loud 

I searched for you in the stars above 
I knew only you could have my love 
I searched for you 
In the moon and the sun 
I knew Dewayne you were the only one 

Knowing when I saw your face 
I had to be in the right place 
When I laid my eyes on you 
My life became brand new

The Rainey Day

Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop

It is time, time for the rain to plop
It is here, here to make the day go by
Slowly, Slowly in the distance I hear the rumbling of clouds 
I see the darkness of night
I see the moon peep through the shadowily smoke 
And then the sky seems to fall
Pouring crazily toward the ground

Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop

outside the window I see 
the needless needles cradle through the atmosphere
As i mope inside the dark house i still say
Oh how i hate The Rainey Day

The Garden of Eden

In the Garden of Eden, there is Love.
 True Divine Love that is expressed freely, uninhibited by deception,
  boundaries or barriers
That would place strain on our relationship.
Come, let us dwell therein!

In the Garden of Eden, there is peace.
We can walk hand in hand  in the cool of the day
Enjoying one another's company
Running free to romp and play
In harmony
Till our hearts' content
In heavenly bliss.

In the Garden of Eden, there is Joy
To bring our feelings for each other to the heights
That they will overflow and always keep us saturated
In happiness and growing -together- in oneness.

In the Garden of Eden, there is Life-
To its true meaning, eternal, with abundance for you and I-
Through love, peace, joy, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness,
  meekness, and  self-control-
And for all who would  enter to dwell with us.
Come! To be happy and free forevermore.

The Day We Were Wed

Ten years have past since the day we were wed,
till death do us part is what we said.

We’ve faced all challenges both good and bad,
happy times and some that were sad.

We’ve had our share of quarrels and fights,
experienced many sleepless nights.

She has been there for me all along the way,
so by my side I pray she will always stay.

She has made me the man I am today,
my best friend I am happy to say.

I want to be as good to her as she is to me,
hope I am the best husband I can be.

Many laughs and two kids later,
I could never imagined anything greater.

Because of how she has changed my life,
I am forever proud to call her my wife,

I’ll never forget the vows we said,
or the day we were wed.

I attain out my heart to you,
With the notion I have done foolish pride in them.
Aching for the attention of an adolescent to be put upon me,
And not imagine of the reality of things that go on in life.
But when I assemble and think
It’s all about the love of u.
I never knew my soul would undergo incomplete,
From not seeing you, 
Or hearing your exquisite voice.
I just wish every night before I go to bed,
That God brings your posterior to me one day,
And not have me melting inside for you.
Every time I sense about the bad times,
There wasn’t a really bad time.
It was just two selfish souls wanting more out of the other.
Babe I love the way you smile and smidgen your upper lip.
The way you embrace me like I’m forever,
And we were heavens faultless equivalent of love.
My essential is for you to be my wife,
The one my child runs too,
The concession of my heart. 
To know you can’t be with me at this time,
But then you aspire me and love me;
Keeps my warmth heart wanting you.
I shall perceive on with my life of dreams to accomplish,
But hope you draw closer back home to the heart that wants you.
You know other beings look into my eyes, 
And distinguish the love I have for you.
Sometimes I fancy to tear,
But I cant.
I necessitate knowing that you’re here with me,
In soul and heart.
I crave to know that you miss,
And think of me like the messiah of love.
You are my revelation of true love,
And it hurts that I can’t be in your presence.
I’m sorry for the foolish things I say and done.
I love you babe be my wife
And make my completion of my life be with u.
I love you, 
Be my forever and lock my soul.
Be the proverbs of love the world reads,
And the declaration God has placed on us.
If this is my ordeal from him,
I’m going to succeed this for wanting you.
I have never wanted something so adverse,
Till now.
You intertwine my conclusion of existence.

Close the Lock

Love and Death clutch hands
Speak vows written in holy word
As the Devil smiles with anticipation

Down the aisle she dances
Corset laced and dress sinuous
Her magnificence was faultless

He stands stiff,
Framework trembling with nervous jerks
Butterflies eat the lining of the stomach

Both speak the words of truth,
And seal it with a kiss
Weeps from the church pews
Strike the heart, sentimental

Now closed forever, protected
Priceless rings signify nothing
Hearts bleed jewelry

United in the courtship of love
Sinners they are destined to befall
Satan smiles, awaits
As they pick the lock on the gates of Hell

Take my hand and teach me
what I do not know - 

Touch my lips and kiss me,
I'll follow where you go.

Tell me that your heart is mine;
I'll give mine to you.

Show me of your loyalty,
I'll be forever true.

Warm my soul so tenderly
when bitter cold winds blow;

Help me believe I'm beautiful
even when we're old.

Love me, dear, not just for now,
but all eternity

Not a weekend, not a day,
but always... endlessly.

A Question Waiting To Be Answered

Looking into your eyes could make all of my pain go away. Looking into your eyes 
makes me feel safe and secure as if nothing could ever happen to me. When 
you kiss me it feels like I’m floating and that we are the only ones in the world. If I 
were to say that you are apart of me I would be lying because you’re all of me. 
You are my heart and soul. You make me whole, so what I’m trying to ask you is “ 
Will you marry me?”

He who holds the key

He who holds the key to my heart has no idea how much he really owns. He is 
my unsung hero, my life’s big meaning in the crazy world we share. He holds my 
hopes and my dreams for the little ones we’ve barred. If anything were to ever 
change, my life’s unbalance would spin out of control forever taking over all the 
wonderful things we behold. In saying all that is true the key he holds only he and 
our children will ever be allowed to use.

Love of my life

Love me forever more, give me your heart to
place in my protected soul of love for you.
I will reassemble the shattered muscle which
beats ever so slightly to provide you with the
life you live for me. Dying for you would
selfish of my soul, living to love you would
be selfish of my heart. Enter into my heart
with a light-foot to gently ease my pain away.
Love me unconditionally and never let the
flame of our burning love candle fade away.
Rescue me from the blindness that selfless
love causes. Be the air that I breathe to keep

guide me to the gates of heaven so I can shine

Together Through The Years

Together through the years......
     you have traveled not only hand in hand,
     but side by side,
     soaking up the knowledge 
      and wisdom 
     from experiences and happenings
     which the sands of time have sent 
     drifting into your path
     on your journey through life.

Together through the years......
     you have watched and endured
     the temperament of mother natures' emotions
     as she:  watered you blossoming
     flowers with tears both of joy and sorrow;
     sent lightening showers of furry
     down to open the eyes of those
     who have forgotten
     she can take care of her own;
     and warmed the hearts and souls of many
     as she hung the sun brightly in the sky.

Together through the years......
     you have traveled many roads
     and walked on many paths.
     You have shared laughter
     and tears, triumph and sorrow.
     It has been 50 years
     and you have traveled together,
     lovingly side by side,
     together through the years.

Just When I'd Given Up

 Just when I thought life was over, here you are making me smile.
Just when I thought all hope was gone, here you stand making my life worthwhile.
I'd given up on love and thought I wasn't worthy to have it, and each day you make 
me feel as though I deserve it.
Just when my mind had me thinking the single life was my claim of fame, you are 
the one that wants me to wear your last name.
Just at the darkest point of no return our love unfolds and blossoms big, and had 
it not been for you I would have given up!

A portrait of a future young bride
Stand with absolute pride
On my bedside table,
That I was really able
To cherish it for so long;
And I felt sad as I hear her song
Time and time again;
I don’t understand, beyond my ken
Why do I have to keep it, still?
I am not a keeper of a seal, 
Nor I had been? For loyalty was betrayed;
Around the edges, thought is getting frayed
Whether, I’ll let the keepsake to remain
Adoring me, as I sleep in pain!

Solomon's Song

I have found the one
           my soul does love
           bearing gifts from above;
My darling, my fair one,
Come away, turtle dove,
After whom I run...
     I search to this end,
     To find my perfect one
And my best friend,
Majestic as the stars
          and moonbeams on lawn;
          upon the seas my beloved
Appears like the dawn,
Whom now I hold;
     I will not let go
     Of my concerned lover,
Whom alone does know,
Protects my heart,
          cares for me in whole;
          I have found the one
Who loves my soul
With vehement flames
     And coals of fire,
     By whom I am roused,
For whom is my desire
Unquenched and sealed,
          strong and unyielding,
          undrowned and guarded
With a blazing sword weilding;
My heavenly angel
     Hasted, and beheld me,
     Received me, embraced me;
Though refuge failed me,
I am strong belonging,
          and my beloved is mine;
          the shadows all vanish...
Day break does shine
As bright as the sun
     With the singing of birds;
     Unique and most lovely,
Voicing sweet words,
My flawless one is 
          my beautiful dove;
          giving gifts from above,
I am my beloved's...
I have found the one
     My soul does love.

The Wedding Poem

Centuries of seeking yet never to find 
The one true soul that was like mine 
So many souls I have touched along my way 
Yet never one to take my hand or make me want to stay 
And so I walked through this journey with a smile and loving heart 
Still seeking that one true love to capture my heart 
Never feeling it was meant for me 
Never admitting the depth of loneliness in me 
You entered my path and somehow I knew 
My searching was over for I found the heart that is true 
Never speaking those romantic words 
But touching my spirit and soul where feelings speak volumes not just words 
My journey now is over as a single soul 
Now we follow the path together for we make each other whole 
Bonded in spirit, in soul and heart 
We now look to a new future,a new life and a  new start

And In So Changing

And in so changing, does the sun 
Lose heat or luminosity, 
And do the solar winds succumb, 
Surrender their ferocity? 

And in so changing, must the seas 
Trade depth and hidden wonder, 
And do the sands defy the surf 
Thus burying us under?

And in so changing, could the skies 
Bleed space and all infinity, 
And do the stars of night forsake 
Their angel bright divinity? 

And in so changing in the eyes 
Of God and all His blessing, 
And as you are so shall you be 
Two lovers coalescing.

The way he smiles when I burp or fart
The way he loves me with all of his heart
The way he dances in is shorts for me
Shaking it all just so that I may see
He’s true to me of this I am so sure
Our love is simple, true, and pure
The way he talks to people in his sleep
The way he penetrates me so very deep
My love for him is so strong and true
I’ll love him until my hair turns blue
The way he looks all sweaty and dirty
He looks nowhere near to his age... thirty
His beautiful eyes see deep inside of me
Holding me tight and loving me perfectly
His name is Matthew and he is all mine
Matthew I will love you for all of time

Stepped into the Life

For richer, for poorer
Til death do us part
Were words that we whispered
Straight from our hearts

I smiled as I saw you
You smiled back at me
A vision of beauty
For all eyes to see

It was crowded, yet quiet
We stood there alone
Though so many viewed us
We felt right at home

As love there surrounded
And brought us as one
We pronounced all our vows
Then walked to the sun

25 Short Steps

O, it is only 25 short steps, 
For you to take your feet, 
To reach the blue bell.

Don’t turn away from your path,
Nor have you looked back, son;
Go straight ahead. Just there.

There at the majestic blue bell, 
We all will be meeting you,
To listen to its divine sound.

O come on, do not be nervous,
What you’re going to do is simple;
Walk, listen. Then say: yes, I do.

That’s all; can you do that, son? 
Yes, I can do these 25 short steps,
Thou, I’m really nervous. I sweat.
But, knowing your loaded shotgun,
Pointing at my back scares me a lot, 
Than taking your princess to a vow.

He is Wonderful

His heart is full of love for me,
	He loves me so much I can hardly believe.
His arms are strong and secure like the bond between us.
	He thinks I am gorgeous
But I know he is the one who is terrific.
	He is everything I never knew I needed.
He is my perfect match, He makes my life complete.
	His unconditional love is one of a kind- unique.
The way he gazes into my eyes, 
                     He peers into my soul and sets my heart on fire.
From the moment he said he loved me my heart just melt.
	This awesome of a love I could have never felt.
He has tremendous faith in me.
	The kind of faith some may never see.
This is the man that God put in my path
	To hold my hand and to be with me until the end.
“He” is my wonderful husband, whom I love 
                      More than mere words on a page could EVER express.

When You Love Somebody

When you love somebody,
You will love in truth and in deed the way you desire
	to be loved by the other,
And you will suffer long and be kind
Until you find that all that that person has and is 
	is being given to you;

You will not be envious
When you love somebody.
You will both say good words and perform great and small
	selfless acts of love,
But you won't push yourself forward to boast of them
Even if most of them seem to go unnoticed or unappreciated
	by your significant other;

You won't be conceited or arrogant
When you love somebody.
You will honor and respect and prefer the other
	and his or her interests before your own.
So you will not be rude
Even if you're used or neglected by your one and only
	for his or her own pleasure and ease;

You will not be self-seeking
When you love somebody.
You may be offended or sinned against with words
	or by actions seventy times seven,
But you will not be easily angered
Avoiding the danger and the appearance of dissimulated love,
	you forgive as if there's nothing to forgive;

You will keep no record of wrongs
When you love somebody.
You communicate and disclose yourself and your feelings
	without fear or disputing,
So you will have no pleasure in evil
Around other people or when you're alone together,
	so peace is kept with understanding;

You will rejoice with the truth
When you love somebody.
You will sacrifice as if every sacrifice is but a reasonable gift,
	even laying down your own life;
You will always protect the person
And never reject the person, neither regret nor forget the vows
	you've promised in truth and honesty;

You will always believe in the person
When you love somebody.
You will walk by faith and not by sight until you're like-minded
	and have the same love for one another,
So you will always hope
And learn to cope and bear the infirmities of the weaker one
	until there comes a change;

You will always persevere
When you love somebody.
You will be strong, showing the way love ought to be;
	knowing you're not perfect, but striving
You will conquer and overcome evil by doing good
And love the way love would, knowing full well that 
	without the power of love you cannot love;

You will always endure for the future set before you
When you love somebody.
You will have faith, hope and never be put to shame
	because love will never fail.

I see the guest dressed in there best 
Oh how I wish that they could see the truth 
As I walk down the aisle, 
I see the frown of the man that 
Says he loves me. 
With tears running down my eyes 
I can't deny that I share that same frown 
But it's inside my heart 
Can he see, do they know? 
Should I head for the door? 
What should I do, what should I say? 
Will this feeling ever go away? 
As he looks into my eyes, I feel butterflies 
The pastor says, are you ok? 
I say, yes let's be on our way 
He takes my hand, and says 
Do you understand that, I'm not your man 
I can't say I do, cause, I never loved you

Three Little Words

You ask me to marry you 
and I said yes! 

Now I wonder if it was for the best. 

We argue and fight so much it seems or is 
that only in my dreams? 

What is real and what is fake or is 
what we did a big mistake! ! ! 

Do you love me like I love you or is it 
a phase we are going through. 

We say words that hurt us so we would 
be better off to let it go. 

I love you with all my heart, but the 
things we say are ripping us apart! 

What can we do to stop the pain it's 
been nine years now and 
it's not a game! 

I haven't won and neither have you 
if only we can see our dreams 
have come true. 

I have you and you have me and 
together we will always be. 

Instead of the painful words we say I
suggest to you we do is 
just say.... 

I LOVE YOU! ! ! !

Loves First Embrace

Born a farmer,
his hands so tough,
he built a home,
of lumber so rough.
A bride he yearned for,
someone soft to hold,
that special one,
on nights so cold.
He bowed his head,
and said a prayer,
please send me an angel,
with skin so fair.
Then one day,
his request came true,
a knock on his door,
she had eyes so blue.
I'm new in these parts,
she said with a grin,
he opened his door,
and invited her in.
A courtship began,
they laughed so much,
and every day,
he grew fonder of her touch.
The very next day,
when she walked through his door,
he was down on his knees,
asking, please be mine forever more.
Miracles do happen,
but we first must believe,
give it to Jesus,
and He will lead.

The Path

Through the midnight wanderings
On darkened paths of yore
The world may have been different
With love, yet to explore

He wandered in the moonlight
Upon the night he wed
With sounds of nature, enticing
Seduction is where it led

The path through which he traveled
To him was all too new
Her loving hand to guide him
Was moonlight shed for two

Together they would travel
Upon this darkened course
Entering love’s eternal night
Consuming them with force

This night, they shall remember
Placed ever in their dreams
The night that they went hand in hand
Down the path to find their stream.

A Through Z

Day gives into rest,
The night takes the remaining of the conclusion hours.
Rings of wedlock fixed perfectly around the heart's fingers.
Stroll the pier with two hands different in one accord. 
Displayed in my lifelong?
Never have I seen the light of day.
Such loveliness;
Overcoming the complexity of this world today?
In me I believe,
 "For He is Greater than..."
Still Silent Voice,
 "I can only Love on My Behalf,"
My heart filled in the blank.
Than in the thought-current I reside;
Body pierce in oneness with this timeline,
Tattoo up & be cloned like the modern? 
A man's man,
What ever that means?
One of the boys,
In the sport-stream.
Will my manhood allow me to ballroom rhythmic life odyssey with her?
Harmonize whispering forever loved in her ears?
Can I cherish enfold her without the physical intimacy?
Time can tell me nothing until I enter the tomorrow-promise with she.
My first and my last awaits,
A through Z of completeness in my life, 
Beautiful-her alone.

One-Sided Love Of Parental Marriage

Lend me your lips, that I may kiss you.
Lend me your eyes, that I may see you.
Lend me your ears, that I may hear you.
Lend me your hands, that I may hold you.
Lend me your feet that I may walk with you.
Lend me your heart, that I may feel you.
Lend me yourself, that I may know you.

Pass not like wind, without touching anything!

You have my lips, but you never kiss me.
You have my eyes, but you don’t see me.
You have my ears, but you don’t hear me.
You have my hands, but you don’t hold me.
You have my feet, but you walk not with me.
You have my heart, but you don’t feel me.
You have me, but you don’t really know me.

Ok, just tell me one thing, where is the paper!?

The Big Day

Finally that big day is here,
you know, the one most fathers fear.
Walking down the isle, is all he has to do,
I have been busy for six months, if he only knew
Flowers, cake, the dress, and tuxs,
not to mention, invitations, and such.
Bridesmaids , how many, and what do they wear,
daughter in a tizzy, she hates her hair.
Plates of pink, and white, crystal glasses with bows,
now she is complaining, the shoes cramp her toes.
Candles that float, staggered in the pool,
finally I found that stash of brew.
One little nip, ahh, what could it hurt,
I sure hope that release on the balloons will work.
Little bows, big bows, and all in between,
so many were made, and put on everything.
Chairs on the lawn, placed just right,
now she tells me, they don't look right.
Tuff, this is it, let's get this on the road,
your mother has had it, I'm just about to fold.
This is your day, the most special of all,
hold on to your mother, I think I drank it all.

True Love - Dedicated to my Husband

A true love is
Someone who can gaze into your eyes and know what you are thinking
Someone who feels your own pain as if it was their own
Someone who can finish your sentences
Someone who understands you inside and out
Someone who has seen the darkest side of you & loves you more because of it
Someone who would give their life for you
Someone you can trust with all your secrets
Someone who will treasure every intimate detail you have disclosed to them
Someone who knows your inner child and the adult you have become

Someone who will be by your side through the darkness and the light
Someone who will hold you when you are scared, lonely and crying
Someone who will love you when you are penniless
Someone who will hold your hand on your death bed
Someone who is always there for you no matter what
Someone who can be your fortress when you need strength
Someone who will love you forever no matter what
Someone who will love each flaw you have as much as your greatest attributes
Someone who will hold your hand through life's journey
Staying by your side regardless of what obstacles cross your path

If you have what I described
You should hold it close
You should cherish your love
Because you have found something
That comes along once in a lifetime
That many of us will never find
That many of us dream for

This Woman, This Man

In a lifetime of madness things seem so unsure,
Til that special someone comes along,
So wonderful, honest, and pure.
The clouds drift away, as the sun begins to shine,
Behind those tears, hurt, and pain your heart begins to smile.
Finally, just as life seems to deal another raw-hand,
His mercy shines, reborn is this woman, this man.
A lifetime of love, honor, and respect,
Pleasures only known to them.
As this journey heats their souls from now until beyond this worlds end.
Merry songs of joy release the unknown.
As a radiant beauty walks down the aisle.
Awaiting her final step to stand at his side,
Her majesty extends his hand to accept a intimate true love vow.
As tears fill their eyes vows are given from their souls.
Rings exchanged as a beautiful story manifest and grows.
Here stands the beginning of two reborn lads,
By tender grace and mercy,
Reborn is this woman, this man.

Three Words I Long To Know

My confidence is insecure. It is dreadfully low
There are three words that I long to know.
The answer determines if I stay or if I go.
Don’t want to rush. Take your time. Go slow.

My heart beats whenever I hear your name.
You are my life, my love’s one and only flame.
I can only hope that one day, you’ll feel the same.
Your feelings are silenced. I’m going insane.

You’re so complex. Sometimes you’re a mystery.
You said you wanted to spend your life with me.
What ‘s missing? Is there something I don’t see?
I cannot unlock that door, only you hold the key.

You’re my significant other. You’re all that I speak of.
We’re a great deal alike. We resemble hand to glove.
You’re the only man that I’ll ever want to love.
The answer I’ll wait. I’ll not push nor will I shove.

I’ll fade to the background. My love for you is known.
My hearts awfully restless. My soul is so alone.
Each and every passing day; my love for you grows.
My love there are three words that I long to know.

To Live Together

                       The testaments of love
                      Tucked by caring arms 
                                 Into infinity; 
                   Where albums embraced 
                           Images, bearing
                      The long term dreams;       
                 As words spoken solemnly,
                               That’ll forever 
                            Be remembered 
                          By strangers eyes, 
                           Gazing us intently
                             We could pass 
                             The tingling fire
                           Of being the lords
                         Of these silver rings,
                        Though, we sealed it
                             With our kisses…
                       The testaments of love
                                Our sacrifices, 
                     To live together….in loves!

Thoughts of the Break

I didn't want to do it,
I hate to hear you cry,
It's just so hard to deal with
When our parents run our lives.
We were treated like puppets,
And I did what I had to do.
Now I'm feeling down and out,
And I'm not sure what to do.
We want a great life together,
And I want to be your wife.
This break isn't permanent,
I promise you it's not
I love you more than anything,
And I want to be yours forever.
So please believe me when I say:
"I do!" on our wedding day.

what dreams are made of

I'm too small to tell you what a wedding is
but mommy has never been so quiet 
and daddy's never been so proud
I never knew no noise could sound so loud
my aunt told me weddings 
are what dreams are made of
but this is better than my dreams 
brother looks like a prince 
and after today I will have a sister
everybody is all dressed up
and here we are in church on Saturday
I want my wedding to be just like this
so I think I will start dreaming about it tonight
I'm still to little to know what love is
but I know it's good
because the look in my brothers eyes 
is the same as daddy's 
when he tucks me in every night 
that's what dreams are made of

Wedding (2002)

They say matches are made in heaven but they break out war,
A battle against a majority,
We can’t help who we fall for.

The difference we create in our heart,
Blinds our eyes and tears us all apart,
We are the ones that stand for what we believe,
Others fool about and then leave.

We are the beginning of a change awaiting,
The vicious iron circle is finally breaking,
Were two of the same but different cultures unite,
Our striving love has won the fight.

The Vow & The Promise

I vow to be ya husband to honor & cherish you as my wife
to give you all of my love, from daybreak till the end of the night
I promise to be there for you from beginning to end
loving you not only as ya husband but ya best friend
I vow to take ya hand in holy matrimony
and from this moment forth you won't ever feel lonely
I promise to treat you like a woman is suppose to be treated
you won't ever have to cry to ya friends and say I cheated
I vow to give you my all, pick you up when you're ready to fall
comfort you in times of need when ya back is against the wall
I promise to cherish our time together even though it's ticking
make love to you in the physical even threw these lyrical writtens
I vow to be more than ya husband more than the one you loving
no need for a pre-nup I'm not gonna divorce you all of a sudden
this is my vow and my promise please just say I do
because ever since we met I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life wit you

Dear Love

Dear Love
Today was beautiful
I sipped coffee
Winds above
My cup
Over my head

i got lost in space
in my  happy place

Dear love
Today I ran
through fall leaves
colors changed
I stood in awe
and wished
be here
I want to roll 
big leaf piles with you
tossing them so they float above us
even if its for a few seconds
in this

Do you believe in this life
Because one day I dream of being your wife

Dear love,
There is so much left for me to do
I want
protect the unprotected
I want to fight
because there is nothing
like it
I know I am meant for something much bigger
but I know 
that I am meant
only for you
I know it  is unexpected,
But isn't this what life was meant for
A Series of 

not today, not tomorrow
in the end i want to save you from life's sorrows.

Dear love,
I am not asking for much
Your fast intake of breath
makes me spin
But dear love
its clear
Lifes unanticipated pleasures
Its just completely mind boggling
To picture anyone else
being there.

Fulfilled Dreams

he smiles at her
but says not a word
hopeing that through his actions
his voice would be heard
without even thinking
she knows how he feels
she looks at him and sees
that she's head over heels
now their together
a little more than just friends
saying that their in love
and never going to end
they promised eachother 
that they'd always be there
they'd never tell lies
and they'd always be fair
their one year in to it
and their still going strong
stil keeping their promise
always getting along
one day he comes home
and he hands her a rose
then he takes a deep breath
and kneels down to propose
he froze for a moment
as thoughts filled up his head
he looked her in the eyes
then he came out and said
i love you with all my heart
its with you i want to be
i never want to be apart
so will you marry me?
she looked up into his eyes
unsure of what to do
as she's still taken by surprise
she said, "yes i'll marry you"
two months later,still in love
at the church upon the hill
they looked at eachother and recited their vows
as their dreams became fulfilled

Where would I be if not for you?
You gave me hope, you pulled me through.
You came into my life When I was in need,
I was lost and you took the lead.
You helped me through the darkness when I
saw no light.
When I was in pain you held me tight.
You gave me your love when noone would.
When I said "I can't" you showed me I 
No matter what I did you helped me carry
the weight.
Thats why you coming into my life was

31Fabel Part two

31fabel this is part two please read part one first

All Hail the Power of JESUS name a  song on you tube a great refrain the ewe is 
so sublime she loves my lord she loves the SON as much as eye. Healthy is a 
term designed to fool the masses in a hopeless mess of ashes a world 
destroyed by fire imagine holding on to preconceived ideas and religious 
gnashes biting thorns of crackers smallish pieces of the breaded JESUS come 
and ruin all decay in me today and fill my love with healthy life and let her live and 
bless herself amen and take all my nerves and mend them without whiskey let 
me win the battle is now mine the end in sight the day is come the walls of 
Jericho are falling all around. 

We both like Fogarty the singer of the creedence song. 

We both like dandelions' how they come apart. We both like dragonflies the 
wings so far apart. Rain in the summer love in the winter life in the spring. 

The little silver color in the box. The happy that we do when we talk man and wife. 
The prayers that come to the mind unbidden as we talk yearning just for kisses 
yearning just for time to love. A robot heart hidden in a real love an android one 
charlax seven molded in the form of a CREEDENCE song. Without an ending a 
poem never stops in side of heaven is my love she it is that rules me lets me 
love. A wonderful purple flower hidden in a tall tree it is she. This is charlax seven 
android one.
