365 Days

"This is dedicated to all who understand this. Whether we like it or not." -D.J.E.

I wasn’t gonna write this


Emotions are stirring high
Cannot believe
How much time has passed

Still feel your presence

Of the slowest death
Ever felt
Running parallel
To these present seconds

An ugly revelation
Tainted the sunshine
That bared on our souls
365 days ago

So many tears
Had filled the ocean
Of despair
For love’s river
Were held back by presumption’s walls
The dam’s of what could have been

Here I stand
In this present moment
Your essence still lingers
Like the flakes of a dandelion b r e a k i n g 		f r e e
From its home

Tormented echoes of “why”
“How come”
“Please don’t go”
“I love you…I love you so much”

High pitched resonations
Float upon
Rafts of secondary importance
And yet
This heart still knows

For it will always recall
Its truth

Played me a fool
While you held hands
With inevitable

Crossing fingers
With diffusion
Across my shoulders

Left me uncomfortably numb
All my rights

And all the while

In tomorrow

My foolish hopes
Continued to warp my mind

Maybe if I didn’t look back when you walked away
Like the rules said…
…No matter.

These soft acoustic riffs
Replay in my head
You were my “Wonderwall”
“You could’ve been the one…to save me”

But I overcame
For I
Saved myself

Didn’t want to be an inconvenience for you

Colors of Fall
Your favorite season
Kinda ironic
You were like Summer & Winter

Knew when to turn up the heat
Make me sweat

Each new arrival
A summer equinox
Each departure
A rainstorm

But, when it was over
Nothing but cold
Blizzard languages
Even solace’s bandages
Could not heal

But, I weathered the storm
And would do it again
Cause it was for real


Here I am
52 weeks have past
Occasional recollection
Of that hourglass
With no more sands
Buried in dragon’s chest

You are in my silent prayer

Know this

Even though you are contained
Within my heart’s asylum cell block home
I loved you
With all that I had

So much

That you will be the only regret
I will ever be proud of.

~ ~ through eyes that glow ruffling your hair we warm the room with luminous stares a gentle ambrosia drapes the fragrant air with wine from your lips --- and just there this need to melt in immortal surrender kindles as rows of candlelight declare kept promise of twenty years deeply shared and while laugh lines crease slight wear and tear the charm of life’s interludes makes me aware ~ how we glide together still burning and bare ~ Russel Sivey’s Candlelight Contest By nette onclaud

The softest part

The softest part of a woman
Is not where you may think

Behind the ears 
in the mouth 
or lips of petal pink

inside the knee
inner thigh
you still have not to find
the tender place…
it’s not her face
or curve against the spine

her finger tips
bloom of hips
the nipple, or the eyes
beneath the breast 
 just a test 
to know you really tried

a trick you say!
if not the cradled
skin between the toes
a game to play
who finds the way?
who can really know?

The softest part of a woman though
is nowhere you can touch

with fingertips
or open lips
it’s nothing of the such

you might say above
is everything she lives
but not just love
and then it is
her willingness to give

The "Senses" Since

I remember the look
In those big brown eyes
As you’d smile and laugh
And leave me hypnotized

I remember the touch
Of your hands so soft
How you’d hug and comfort me
And shake the cold off

I remember the taste
Of your sweet lips on mine
Enthralled in a kiss
For hours at a time

I remember the sound
Of your voice so warm
You’d just whisper gently
And quiet the raging storm

I remember the smell
That enchanted my nose
The scent of your body
Bathed in absolute rose

Yes, I remember you dear
And all the love we grew
And I have spent a lifetime
Making “sense” of you

A Golden Journey

You were eighteen and I twenty two That day at the alter when we said I do Since then the years have traveled so fast For us in a marriage they said wouldn't last They are too young, the voices said Much too young for them to wed They are just kids, they have no idea I doubt they'll even last a year But our love was greater then our age Together we stepped upon our stage Performed the roles of husband and wife Acting as one throughout our life And now after all these years are done We still meet each new challenge as one Our hearts have merged and every day Together face what comes our way Those that said it wouldn't last Are now just memories from our past It seems in fact our love was true I cherish my fifty years with you To my lovely wife on our golden anniversary February 3, 2012 Iambic Tetrameter

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.

Unexpected events

My watch is broken, I can not wait for you to get here
The sun is heating,(I cannot believe) today, we're finally meeting.
I'm not quite sure how I'm gonna act or what I'm gonna say
But of one thing I'm sure, when you'll be in front of me, you'll take my breath away.

While I'm waiting, my mind is flying away
From the moment you'll get here, to the first move you'll make.
I just wish, this day to be perfect
I hope I'm ready for any unexpected events.

It's getting late and you're nowhere to be found
I'm getting all kinds of emotions, but is nothing I can do about..
The park is empty, looks like the rain is gonna arrive
I guess I should be going too, nothing makes me stay around.

Maybe you got stuck in traffic or you've just changed your mind,
Either way, I better go now, maybe we'll get to meet some other time..
And now my battery is dying, I have such a lucky day,
I don't think this day could get any better,
           >>no 'eff!n' way!!<<

Where should I go now? to the hotel or to a pub?
I'll get me something to drink before Imma call it a nite.
I don't find my card key, guess I'm losing my mind..
 Who the 'eff' are you 'my friend'?
 Why do you have to honk so loud?

    you: Hey!!!
    me: Gosh, you scared me!
    you: Where are you going? don't we have a date?
    me: Hey, you're the one that got here late.
    you: Yeah, I'm sorry. look, I've been running all the way...
    me: Cool. I'm glad you came.
           I'm starving. where you gonna take me?
    you: well, since our picnic is ruined, thanks to the coming rain.. 
           lemme take you to my favorite restaurant..
    me: sounds great. OK.

While in the car, you've turned on the radio
And the silliest song was playing in the air
Smiling, you looked at me and started dancing
Gosh, you're amazing. (that's what I said)

We've got to the restaurant
It's getting pretty hot
No sign of the rain now
Guess she just changed her mind.

When I stepped inside
My favorite song was playing .. so loud
And once you've heard it, you took my hand in yours and smiled
you: Hey, this is our song since now!!

Since then I got this feeling, this awesome feeling inside
I'm with the right person and the nite has just begun
You're full of surprises, beautiful and kind
For me you are so special, I'll roll my dice tonight.

Next thing I know, we were back in the car
The music was playing loud, you were driving too far
The last stop we've made, was at the hotel I'm staying
You grabbed me in your arms and .. and then's when it started ... raining.

The weather gets colder, your hand is on my shoulder,
I ask you if you want to come and wait inside.
The fireplace is on, your clothes are on the stove
I bring you comfy clothes, while you're in the shower.

The rain is falling from the sky, the night is deep, looks black and white
I pour you a glass of wine while getting closer.
The electricity goes off, all of a sudden
We're in the dark, the music stops - I lit (up) a candle.

Looks like the rain has stopped now (or for the moment)
I pour you another glass of wine..
I touch your hand, you're grabbing mine
And pull me closer.

The last thing I remember, you were playing through my hair
I felt your (warm) breath down on my neck and I've kissed your shoulder
Slowly, you laid me down, on the floor, whispering something in my ear
Your fingers were walking down my spine, I've closed my eyes.. that's when we've kissed.

We've spent the night together, sleeping in each other arms
I was your blanket, you were my pillow - the dawn was coming fast.
I woke up and.. watching you sleeping
You found me smiling when you've opened your eyes.

Things went so fast - time was flying by
Only four days, until we say goodbye.
All the sand from the beach, the pictures framed in our minds
The scrambled eggs in the mornings, (all those) kisses (stolen) through the night.

While I'm counting the seconds, my mind is flying away
From the moment we've met, to the last thing you'll say.
I just wish, this day to last forever
I hope our story will never have an end.

In the airport, while waiting for our planes to come
Our silly love song was playing one more time
And once again, you took my hand in yours and smiled
That's when you've asked me, if I want to be ... your wife.

Ten Years Today, Our Love

Ten Years Today, Our Love

The sweet joy of my life you are still
 your love, does in my heart instill
 sweetness of your touch does so thrill!

No other could ever hold or replace
 the beauty of your soul and face
 your light, my heart does so race!

It was you, always you from the start
 so beautiful, witty, always so smart
 your love, our love rests in this heart!

Time surely must yield, to the flowers in our field!

Robert J. Lindley , 12-10-2014

Note- Ten years today my wife and I have been married.
Ten glorious years she has blessed me with and I adore her
more each day. She that still thrills me when I see her rise 
in the early morn. When I hear her voice say goodnight.
These ten lines of love are my offering to this sweet lady, my darling wife.

Found Love

When first I came to know this world, my eyes were young and hurt,
And O're the years I came to know, the expression in my heart,
I fought my way through love and pain, through heart break, and much worse,
Until one day I found a man, who could love me at my best and worst,
He would drive me to the point of insane, yet bring me back to laughing tears,
He could make my eyes weep in shame, yet hold me close and i would heal,
18 years, it took to know that I would never leave his side,
For when I was born I knew this man; Inside my soul, the knowledge survived,
I found him after 16 years, And knew I loved when i reached 17,
Now the age of womanhood is apon me, and if asked Ill respond,
it is his wife I shall gladly be,
Sweet eyes so young, but aged too,
my love today, I explain to you.

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Life is a many things
Sometimes life is a dark tunnel,
But every tunnel has a light at the end
I will be your lantern to guide the way
Cling to me and I will keep you from the darkness
Life is a giant battle.
I will be your shield and spear 
Your spear to pierce through the horrible people
Who want to harm you, 
Your shield to protect you
From the battles you cannot win your self 
life is many things my dear 
But I am here,
For you to use, to cherish, and love.
Life is many things my dear. 
But you are not alone.
I am here.

The Rhythm of One

Love is not love if only in books and songs
In romantic movies and poems it belongs
It is life itself; an experience we share
A personal history of concern, commitment and care

Love is a voice that will soothe and caress
A heart that is uneasy, a mind in distress
It is a look that says, "I'm here, I know life isn't fair.
 Pour out your troubles, I'll listen, I'll always be there."

Love is a smile, on both the lips and the eye
A suggestive twinkle and a warm good-bye
It is a message that needs no gesture or voice
Yet, in that twinkle it says, "In your company, I rejoice."

Love is the soft touch of one hand in the other
The gentle massage of one heart by another
That occurs when those fingers do gently squeeze
And say, "As long as we are together, life will be a breeze."

Love is not love if only in an expensive jewel or gift
Can it offer us comforts, our flagging spirits lift
Love is life itself, the acts that are done
When two hearts celebrate with the rhythm of one.

Passionate Love

I want you..
And I was made just for you
I'll make love to you
All the night with you

Feel my heart that burns in fire
Look my eyes that full of desire
As our bodies ignite in passion
Our souls chain in a strong union

Carressing every part of you
Gives me satisfaction
Dancing in the hymn of love
That just the two of us can hear it loud

Nothing seperate me from you
No one could make me feel like the way you do
Our passion for each other binds us together
And our love for each other makes us FOREVER!

Standing Amid Thank-fullness

                                             thank God

                                       to life hand in hand.

My Birthday Treat

Tonight is my birthday and I'm in for a surprise
My darling desires to thrill my eyes
The living room is set and the lights are turned low
Scented candles are lit as I await what she shows

Soft ballads play from rock bands we adore
To my left she enters such beauty amour
In sexy black lace with traces of deep red
Her curvaceous shapes play with my head

Teasing and taunting in her gypsy style dance
Erotic she is, my eyes captured in trance
Pouting she writhes alluring my clutch
Staying out of reach, denying me of touch

Scintillating movements as she edges real close
Her perfume entices my desire to pursue
My hearts now pumping in manly crave
As I catch her kisses in loving threw

Closer she dances as she takes my hand
As I arise and join her as we take to the floor
Embraced we are on this special night
Passion awaits with my girl I adore

Touchingly we kiss as our hands declare
Revealing to each other our bodily joys
Blissful caressing declares our time
Our bodies unite in loving employ

Chocolate Bunnies, Champagne and Roses

Easter is upon us
My darling said to me
She keeps quizzing me for chocolate
I said just wait and see

    I wonder what he got me
    Maybe chocolate and some flowers
    I'll be putty in his hands
    Surrendering, as he devours

I need to do some shopping
For chocolates, champagne and roses
The latter will grace my darling
On our bed in delightful poses

     I shall get myself prepared
     For an Easter evening of romance
     A shower and some fragrance
     With a kissing cuddling dance

I hear the water running
As i step through the door
Rose petals on our bed
Also carpeting our floor

     I feel my loves hands on me
     As he joins me in the shower
     Caressing as we wash
     His manliness empowers

We dry each other down
To our bedroom we kiss and touch
Our bed a carpet of roses
We lie down in tender clutch

     His hands in loving wander
     My zones excite and please
     Rose petals float down upon me
     With chocolate, he's on his knees

I lean down and kiss my love
Her body chocolate blessed
Knowing of my sweetness
And my inner hungered zest

     I guide my love to kiss me
     And tell him to close his eyes
     I take him on a chocolate journey
     Where he finds, he'll be surprised

Our chocolate adventures over
To the shower we go again
When we head back to our bedroom
We start again with chilled champagne

missing piece

i sit here thinking about the days.
remembering the time we first met.
i was crying in the rain,
feeling the water and the pain. 
until you came, and wiped my tears away. 

you were like an angel in disguise, 
you never ever fail to make me smile, 
you were a stranger in my world, 
but you made me realize my worth 
when you touch my hand
i know that you understand. 

I feel so safe whenever i'm with you, 
the way you hug me tight when i feel blue. 
you are just like a dream come true. 
i wouldn't need anyone else but you. 
and from now on i offer you my heart.. 

so i thank you for coming into my life,
for bringing the sunshine and making me feel alive. 
you made my life complete, 
baby, you're all i need
you are my missing piece. 

PS:wrote this 2 years ago. i had this poem hidden and reserved for Mr. Right. :-)

Visit me in a dream

Come and visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

Are you floating on a cloud?

Have you found the brightest star?


I know you're with us somewhere,

Even though you can't be seen,

Painting the bluest sky,

Or among the grass so green.


As I'm wandering through the park,

Looking up at the trees,

Daydreaming of the joy you brought,

Will you visit me please?


Just send me a little sign,

White feathers on the breeze,

To let me know you're happy, free

And put my mind at ease.


Or ask a passing stranger,

With twinkling brown eyes,

A cheeky smile, and baldy head,

To nod as he passes by.


Or maybe play a special song,

Loud, on my radio,

That could have been written just for you,

About all the love we've known.


Come visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

I know you're there, a floating cloud,

And one of the brightest stars.

Myth Uncovered

To love another more than life itself...

Is sweet bereavement...Sealed within
loves kiss...

...A love so deep...fathomed in oceans...
only truth can find...

A myth uncovered - discovered over time...

...To relish in this beauty...way beyond compare...

...To look into the eyes of an angel...
...Mornings first light...

...We feel with hearts despair...

...For we nurture this...

...This love we believe has found its way here...

...We cherish everyday...
...this love beyond compare...

...Immortal wish bestow...

....For we love in tomorrows tomorrow...

...This life this love we celebrate...

these two souls love has found...

...this life - this love...

...this love itself creates...

25yrs of love for you

The first time I met you I will never forget,
I fell in love with you the moment our eyes met,
In December that year it was the best day of my life,
when we took our vow's and you made me your wife.

We didn't get engaged,
we didn't need that kind of thing
and 20yrs later you bought me a ring,
When I opened that present what a surprise
I've got to admit it bought tears to my eyes.

Two wonderful children,
a girl and a boy.
Over the years there's been laughter and joy,
there's been times that we'd  fight and argue it out,
but our love for each other was never in doubt.

For 25yrs we have been blessed
with much love and happiness,
and now to make our lives complete
three wonderful grandchildren for us to treat.

Did I Remember To Tell You Daddy

Almost three years now Daddy
since you were taken away
I thank God you no longer suffer
but I had so much more to say

But you and I were always very close
and I know that we still are
So be free to enjoy family and friends
I know you'll never be far

Oh but  Daddy
Did I remember to thank you 
for coming to stay with the kids and I 
At times you thought you were a burden
but if anyone was it was I

And I want to tell you too Daddy
that you would be so proud of them all
Brandon's now a sergeant with a son on the way
Cam Jeremy is due early fall

And your little Sarah Daddy
you would be so very proud
She's a tiny little thing, still a great mom
and has the best boys in any crowd

And I'm sure you've been watching Curtis
So you know he's just like you
And he is living up to the promise he made
Yes Daddy I'm very proud too

Oh and one more thing 
before I lay down to rest
Did I remember to tell you and the world
 My Daddy's the best

Loving you and missing you always
Your baby girl

honest reflections of a manogre

A small patch of flowers, a mountain top glade
slapped into twirls of magenta by cold rain~
voiceless but pleading for the purity of truth
to be taken by {a} tender into the beating of dawn

In sundream they'll play,black butterly and fawnheart
tempering time untill dusk makes the crows bark,
cackling where was the {us} when living turned to blood
drowned the frolick of every prayer for tomorrow-

was it a chain of slanted decisions,that minced the light
bad luck (as when a dime slides from the ritze to the grate...
maybe we met long ago, when we crawled from the sea
took different directions by the will of a rogue breeze

maybe we had parallel lives? 
made from the bones of wild planets of fire

what happens when magenta meets black and blue
[this is a good time to dust of the pallet-start mixing the hues],
what colors do a rabid cyclone leave behind
the texture of twisted stars, 
to be swallowed by the devil of devine? 

young butterfly remembers the innocense of light,
when moonglow made love to the black lips of night.
'till a pack of knives slashed at its wings
(ta hell with the good fight). it no longer searches for mountain top flowers,
or dreams in pools of magenta- 
it lies in the mud juggling broken eggs
upon a pile of old dung-
how in the hell can such a thing... love 
but their is a softness buried deep 
in this blaze of a runaway train
hop on board 
if you will but never again lose your legs
or follow the reflection of manogre...

to be cont.

First Love

We treat it like a marble 

in our pocket for a while 

we win it 

we lose it 

but no matter where it goes 

it always holds 

the warmth of our hands

Details | Dramatic Verse | |


We met on the corner of your block one day,
What ever more could i say

An angel sent down from heaven above
To show me real love
I didnt know that down the road

It would still be you and me
How happiness like this could be

It was you that let me see,
How special the 2 of us are as "we"

We had our ups and downs
Yes,how crazy that it sounds

Now 10 years has past
I'm sure some didnt think it would last
We sure put their feelings in the past

Three kids later, 
What more could i have asked

My love for you grows ever more
I so look forward for what the future has in store

' Rain, Fire, Ice and Breeze '

I Watched A Man, Named, ‘ Rain ‘
Pounding Across The Plains
Running with Cascading Joy
Like a Wet, Happy, Little Boy …

I Found A Man, Named, ‘ Fire ‘
Blaze in Life, A Lightning Desire
His Bold Passion – Consuming Power
Sent Smoke Signals, to My Tower

I Observed A Man, Named, ‘ Ice ‘
Tho’ Frost-Natured, He Did Entice
‘ … Come Hold Me, if You Dare …
And Find Out, if Cold-Can-Care …’

… I Beheld A Man, Named, ‘ Breeze ‘
And Begged Him, ‘Touch Me Please …
Gentle, like a Lover’s Kiss
Whisper to Me, Things I Wished…’

… and Sitting Content, on This Hillside
Listen Now… as I Confide …
‘ Rain and Fire … Ice and Breeze ’
Don’t You Know … You Are All Of These . . .

On this February day All around the world So many hearts In so many twirls Roses and chocolates Presents of love There will be joins of two Like hands in a glove Candlelit dinners Champagne on ice Dressed to impress Perfumes will entice Slow ballads play Whispers in ears Hands in wander Saying, i so love you dear Skins are caressed As their wanting lips touch The unbuttoning of clothes Valentine clutch Warm hearth rug Welcomes their lie Fireside glow Begins, with the stroke of a thigh Hands march In ceremonial glee The excitement of two Rise in degree Their shadows dance On orange glowing walls Symphony of their love Inner enthrals Their passion once fuelled As the fire embers fade Loves shadows diminish From their previous display

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

To late not to fall

Laying here in bed at night
Pulling the covers around me so tight
Watching the candlelight fire dancing
Playing wildly on my ceiling
Inching down my walls
And I think it's about time to give it my all

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall

I quietly listen to the sound of my breathing
The love struck pound of my heart beating
Like a soft secret whispering 
Of mysteries between you and me

No more than this sounds through the night
But in the void of the dark there is still a light
And your love feels me with a soothing lullaby
A hypmotizing song of you and me
Engulfs me in a suductive love sea

While lying here with this all surrounding me
Past hurts I just can't remember to see
I only let go and dream
Of your promises of good things yet to come
and I anxiously wait for each and every one

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall.....

The Vow

As I stand before you today my love
I vow this vow to you and to God above
I vow to love you from this day on,
For this is the sunrise of our new dawn
My Soul is honored
My heart humbled and thankful to thee
For this is the beginning of you and me
I vow to you, you shall never feel the rain
For my love will be your shelter that will always sustain
I vow to you as the blood flows through my veins
Your love flows within my veins just the same
I vow to you; you shall never be lonely
For my love will be in your heart and your soul only
I vow to you if you shed a tear
My love will gently hold you oh so very near
I vow to you when you laugh, I laugh
I vow to you when you cry I shall cry
I vow to you when you breathe, I shall breathe
I vow to you when your heart so shall mine beat
I vow to you your family shall be mine
I vow to you my family shall be yours
I vow to you, you are my life, my existence my love all I need to survive
I vow to you I shall die fulfilling your happiness
My heart bows with humility and my soul is filled with honor
From this moment on I shall treasure you and you only
I vow to you neither of us shall ever again be lonely
I vow you this through the end of time

Evening of Passion

Evening of Passion

As the sun slowly sets
He starts to get bolder
Gently caressing
That of her shoulder

Sending chills
Down her back
Her eyes are filled
With insatiable desire
Is the sensuality of their passion and fire

Slowly but surely
His gentile touch goes
From the small of her back
Down to her toes

His lips meet hers
As their lust grows
She is shocked, and amazed
At all this man knows
For with every kiss
Every touch
Brings her touch

An astounding form of wanting
They yearn to go further
As the moon light shines
Through the trees and the vine
Oh so slightly, he kisses
The arch of her neck

Slowly they remove
One another’s attire
Each removal of cloth
Brings an extraordinary craving,
But both know
That the prolonging of this feeling
Their bodies demand
Shall bring such waves of pleasure
That last for hours on end

This seems like torture
Torture, indeed  
These exotic acts of foreplay
For which one not need
But prolonging the pleasure
It is meant to indeed

Her deep blue eyes
As drowning as the sea
It was love
In the first degree

Now her body
As beautiful as a blossoming flower
Beauty so breathtaking
It could leave the vocals no power

He just stood there
Unable to move 
For her beauty is mesmerizing
He is in a trance
Now it is her turn
To lead this late night dance

Her lips touch his

Still paralyzed

By those beautiful


Beautiful eyes

Now his lips touch her lips
Below the face

Not needed is hace
For this is no race

She pleaded him stay
For in this life she had experienced
No feeling the same
As she came once
Twice, then thrice
She began to crave
This man inside
Beside and near
For this time she had
Absolutely no fear

This foreplay was pleasing
Yet at the same time
It seemed like torture
But yet so divine

Soon they were locked
In positions of love

In the heat of the moment
They both reached a climax
With ecstatic waves of pleasure

Forever they would remember
This night of passion

Now like a wave
Rolling out to sea
Over this was evening
As if pushed
By that ocean breeze
It all began
With the touch of a shoulder
Like that it had seemed
It ended so quickly

But to their delight
A newborn shall arrive
After this night

Though now this evening
Is now just an ecstatic memory

It shall never be rewritten 
Forgotten, or undone
This evening of passion
Has now burned into the sun

One Month

I want to be the man who’ll be more than your man
I want to be the one you make your best friend
Not to replace the ones you got
But a different one to start
A different kind of love for you
A man with a different point of view
Who really doesn’t care to lay you on your back
I really don’t care to get you in the sack
I don’t care what’s between your legs
Interested with what’s in your heart and your head
Your intelligence to hold me
Your love to move me
Doesn’t matter to me how sex with you would be
Would love you still if we left and you never slept with me.

I want to be there when you need a rock
I want to be the one to stop
You in your tracks when you approach me
Want to be the only man you see
I want to know what makes you tick
I want to take care of you baby when you’re sick
Not the kind of man to obsess bout the size of your chest
The kind of man to try to ease your fears
Not caring about the state of your hair
Instead bring your eyes near,
Let me stare and get lost
Take me to the source of your innocence
Let me fall into your essence
Swept away by your beauty
Amazing me with your purity. 

For you what I feel
Makes you my Achilles’ Heel
My only sweet weakness 
My eternal kryptonite
Thoughts of holding you tonight
My caramel princess
I must confess my heart’s distress
Leaving it a wonderful mess
A mass confusion of feelings
Making me a believer
Making me the receiver
Of a presence so divine.

Don’t make these tears drop
Try not to stop
What we both know is here
Learn to gaze and stare
Into my soul through my eyes
To  win that forever prize
That’s bigger than us both
Realize perpetual growth. 

Although soon we have to go away 
Honestly right now I wish to stay
In your arms
Listen to your heartbeat and let it calm
A few storms of my own
Can’t believe how much this has grown
In just a month…….

the moment I woke

I Lay in bed 
My dreams didn’t start
till the moment I woke
I’ve been awake
I dressed for work 
but just couldn’t leave
you brush a hand across my chest
unaware of my restlessness

fluttering eyes
your ears are uncovered 
do you hear what I say
whisper love
a kiss to your breast
a naked stir
you brush a hand across my chest
unaware of my restlessness

covers removed
I trace the spine
to the back of your heart
close my eyes
I make a line
to curve of your hips

you brush a hand across my chest
unaware of my restlessness

stir and stretch
you open your eyes
to find I was gone

you Lay in bed
your dreams didn’t start
till the moment I woke

Jasmines are flowers of paradise...
an absolute work of God...
sense of the splendid inheritance...
omniscience of God to his servants...
nutrient for the pure of heart.

Nobody can be absolutely...
album, which sets no time...
The love for resemblance does warm the soul...
harmonic songs echo in the life of love audible noise...
actors are like living shadows...
nugget, voice and feelings of those who want to hear...
igneous flame that all travel...
exercise for the imagination of those who observe...
living is not for everyone - only the strong survive.

Birthdays are acts that comprise only a single contemplation...
equivalent to the jasmine garden of the Lord...
host for the coming...
real, for those who know how to love.

The Definition Of A Real Woman

(W)- A real woman knows that the wages of sin is death so she is not concerned about the wages of a real man, because money comes and goes like day and night; but true love comes just every blue moon. A real woman isn't loud and doesn't have to be the center of attention. Money is a gold-diggers virtue, while patience is a real woman’s virtue. A real woman is always wary of the image she displays to the world because she knows her children are watching her every move. A real woman’s wisdom comes from the teachings of her elders and the experiences and hardships life brings. A real woman is the wings that help a broken man learn to fly again. When you become the object of a real woman’s affection, winning is the only option.

(O)- A real woman’s main obligation is to better herself, before she attempts to become someone’s better half. A real woman is very obliged with all that God has blessed her with. When a man takes a real woman for granted, she makes up her mind to put him away into oblivion. A real woman is use to jumping hurdles because overcoming obstacles in life keeps her on the right track. A real woman doesn't spend her time worrying if failure is around the corner, because she occupies her freedom chasing her dreams in her most comfortable running shoes. A real woman is a hopeless romantic ready to be wooed with an odyssey of love with a real man by her side.

(M)- A real woman’s presence is magnanimous and captures attention because of the poised and elegant stature of her classy nature. A real woman is like the magnet of ecstasy. All women don't attend college or hold prestigious employment, but for many being the Valedictorian of mothers everywhere is the major of their lives. A real woman respects the art of marriage and believes in monogamy. A real woman’s life is the motion picture of sophistication. The mythology of a woman began within a man’s ribs and ends in the beat of his heart.

(A)- A real woman sticks to her man like glue and never abandons his side. A real woman has the ability to do anything a man can. A real woman has the power to fill the abyss of a man’s pains with joy. A real woman prays with her other half because faith is the key of remaining on one accord. A real woman will amaze you with the way she adapts to changes in her ambiance. A real woman is the architect of her own destiny.

(N) A real woman needs a man to understand and love her for everything she is and for everything she is not because a good support system is a leading factor in longevity within relationships. A real woman is the nexus between love and happiness. When you converse with a real woman you will realize that she is nimble with her every response. No man can ignore the nymph of a real woman, because it is in her D.N.A to be notable.

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Dear Michelle

You almost had me,
I wanted you,
The way you stuck to me like super glue,
I was feeling you,
But I knew,
I could never have you,
But, the way you looked at me,
The way my body pleads,
We can never be,
Because I’m too old,
And your only thirteen.

A Symbol Of Our Love

I long to see this love we have blossom daily with each passing day 
The beauty of which we can't see but we can feel it all the same
I love it when the sun comes up and the birds sing sweetly too
This rose will be on our bench every day of the year I spend with you.

This bench of love is reserved for us for many years to come
Sitting here now I say to you that I want you for the rest of our lives
The rose is a symbol of all that is pure, our trust, our hope and love
Two hearts shall not be broken when they've been blessed by God above.

I promise you that each year will be better than the one before 
A  rose I’ll leave on this bench as each year we’re married passes by
I’m always going to be here for you my darling you’re the one I adore 
This rose represents the longing  in my heart, I want you forevermore.

To show just how much I care I will plant a rose bush here just for you
When I look at our little bench each year and think of how it all began    
I'll remember with pride, that eve I proposed and you said “I will marry you”
As I slipped on the ring, you'd tears in your eyes, as the moon came into view.

When times catches up, grey hair sets in, grandchildren running wild at our side
I hope you'll be by my side on our bench with our roses still growing with love 
But if you're not with me,It won't be hard to remember that night of my life
When I proposed  one beautiful eve, we married and were husband and wife.

One who was very considerate.

Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

Of Isis Love Lament...

Oh of Isis love lament
Raging against Ra’s morning light
Where could the time have went
Racing through the desert night

And by the gods of Karnak
We bow to let their power in
And make a solemn promise
To return time and time again

Now to meet my princess
On the banks of the Nile
To embrace forever more
Never to lose my lovers smile

Blessed by the gods
Granted and gifted light
On our lips a promise
And then we rush into the night

Of gay Paris’s happenings
Oui, oui I do recall
That covered balcony
That overlooked it all

The torrid love affair
In the heat of passion true
An ancient promise kept
Memories along the rue

And then I met my lover
Well down by the shore
On the banks of the Seine
We embraced each other once more

Granted and gifted light
Our passions wildly burn
And once again my love 
We submit to the nocturne

Flores De la Noche
How they do intoxicate
As I stand so anxiously
Aside a Spanish lake

And then my lover’s face
Graced with “luce a lun”
Our vows reaffirmed
And not a moment too soon

For there on the banks
Of the lake Asturias
The strength of our promise
Is there to carry us

And then as before
We’re graced and gifted light
In the favor of our Father
We go once again into the night

And here we stand today
Reunited yet again
Same love and same heart
Only under a different skin

And on a beach Pacific
From a distance I see my love
And I give thanks and praise
To the mighty One above

Meeting brings us round again
To fulfill our ancient ties
This I knew the very moment
That I gazed into your eyes

For once again the gods
Have granted and gifted light
And our promise afresh fulfilled
We go perpetually into the night

My Dad who died 41 years ago on June 12th


It was on 'Good Friday'1973,

The doctor delivered his verdict, he said 'he has the big c',

He stood there expressionless, not a flicker crossed his face,

So cold, so hard, barely part of the human race,

He never said 'I'm sorry' he didn't say a thing,

He just walked off and left us, we couldn't take it in,

It was only weeks earlier that it started

With a cough and cold,

Now suddenly he was looking very, very old.

We hadn't expected anything, like this to be told,

6 months to a year, he later said.

But by then, my dad was confined to bed,

As it turned out, 6 weeks is all he had,

He suffered terribly, it was very, very bad,

He gave up his cigarettes, which caused all this strife

An Elegy For Noah Tuckwell

As tears flow from my reddened eyes
I can see what I have purely missed
As I look up to the dark grey skies
I will always remember our first fist

I sit here and think of your face
The first time I saw your light fluffy cheeks
I always wanted to lay my head on that place
Even when I was buried in my girlfriend’s twin peaks.

You never knew my love for you
I waited until it was too late
I often yearned for a way through
Both your heart and your front gate.

But now you’ve passed away
Slipped through my limp and lifeless fingers
But I still yearn for that fortuitous day
And the smell of your tobacco colour coat still lingers.

As I stare at my homage dedicated to you
I can feel a heart shaped hole called ‘Noah’
My body is conflicted, I don’t know what to do
It’s such a shame that you were found in pieces underneath a lawnmower.

So many holes, and opportunities now
I feel my body grow harder
For you Noah would only allow 
One hole to be ventured in farther 

As you led there erotically 
on the grass that day
with your legs so lovely 
I couldn’t take my eyes away

So I didn’t see 
The lawnmower draw near
The blades running free
And beginning to career

Ever closer to your toes
To impoverish your heart
I’m the only one who knows
How a love like this does start 

To think I won’t see you again
Striding majestically down the Bath Road
And, protecting your shoulders from the rain
Your little tobacco coloured coat

I wish I had been able to say 
All this to you when you were alive
I came so close once, that fateful day
When we were standing outside the Beehive

Your hair was golden in the glow 
Of the solitary standing streetlamp
Yet still, you couldn’t ever know 
My feeling for you or my heart would cramp

And now you’re dead you selfish thing
You’ll never hear me speak these thoughts
You’ll never feel me ‘flap my wings’
Or ogle me as I cavort

But now you’re in the ground
In the darkness and despair
But I have now created a mound
Where I can collect your hair

My heart is soaked in liquid salt 
My clothes cling to my body
Although I know that it’s no-one fault
Staring at you was my favourite hobby

Now it’s time to say goodbye
My lovely little pet
My heart still yearns, my eyes still cry 
Although we never met

First Crush: You Crushed My feelings forever

For the boy who had gone through his first crush..  wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

 First Crush: Crushed My feelings forever!!

Her epitome of innocence and virtue made me sick.
Friend around me suddenly pricked.
Scene from the titanic in my mind clicked.
I lost somewhere else and she squandered the opportunity.
Crazy girl, You clinged my heart!!

She was suffice so as I.
Looking at her radiant smile, I was blessed.
My feelings blushed on my cheeks.
God had postulated the first law of love.
Was it the infatuation?? Was it the love??
Crazy girl, Your face is glued on my heart!!

Blue whales diving down deep into the sea.
Molluscan shell in her arms, holding the glittering pearl.
Sun and moon playing the game of hide and seek.
God showered the ecstatic divineness.
Love arised from both the ends .
Her expression occupied the quadrangle of my soul.
Crazy girl, Your adorable persona sticked on my mind!!

My friends tagged her as my Queen.
But it was just a mystery.
I waited till last..
But She didn't rebelled the three precious words.
Desperately waited for the moment.
But When i saw her with his boyfriend.
Crazy girl, You killed my heart!!

Getting goosebumps,
Just left tears in my eyes.
Each and every memories of mine are fragmentized.
Just left with the ashes of moments that we share together.
Life just can't stop without being you.
But you are the luckiest one to be remembered for life time.
Crazy girl,My crush,You crushed my soul!!  with Suyog Pagare

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.

Happy Anniversay

For making it a little easier to get up in the morning, and putting up with my less than friendly 

For making everyday that much better because you are a part of it....

For spending your nights dreaming with me, and working everyday to make those dreams 
come true....

For being a great husband and father, and helping to make our home a loving place to be....

For spending the last 14 years loving me and making me feel like a special part of your life....

For being my best friend, and always being there for me no matter what....

For all these things and more, I LOVE YOU! Happy Anniversay to the love of my life!

A Candlelight Dinner

I had a candlelight dinner last night.  My love and I was feeling alright.
Neither one of us was frustrated.  We cherished the moment and our
love was so elevated.

We both stared into each other's eyes, our heart racing oh so fast, just
sitting and thinking how long or love would last.  We each touched each other
and felt sheer pleasure, we could not forget about this special moment we
both enjoyed, it helped relieved some of the pain and struggles that we
had confronted that day, right at this moment nothing seemed to get in the

The candlelight shining so clear and bright gave reflections of the way in
which we felt that night. It was so peaceful and serene, nothing but our
souls and spirits feeling one another, there was no trouble.
We both felt blessed to have enjoyed such memorable moment at the
present time we were in, just he and I sat there sipping on some gin.

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

A mind filled with mazes
A heart to cold it shivers at warmth.
Has seen the good
The bad of the world.
To distant from life from others
To understand another feelings,
To torn to speak more then three words.
But for you I look with kindly eyes
And a soften smile.
To you I make this confession.
I be dark but you shine a light
With a gaze.
My heart is cold and nearly brittle  away
But with one touch from you ,
Keeps it in tact with two.
Every memory of my past
Disappear when I gaze into your eyes.
I feel like our conversation could go on for hour,
Mountains  of useless words and pointless subjects.
I tell you this
This is a confession, I send to you.
Even though you left me alone,
So many years ago.
This is the love confession that was always meant for you.

I whewed unto myself
I whewed unto who cares to listen
I screeched unto them
I warbled unto all

She is a beauty to behold
But beyond beauty
My dear country is suffering
She is suffering from . . . megalomania

My expected willing whee
Became my unexpected unwilling wheel
To which I wee unwillingly 
At the sight of the whittle

Whence forth is my whet to Whelm 
My willingness to willingly will my will
To my beauty beholding beyond beauty 
My dear country is
She is . . . stealthy coquettish.

Love Unconditional

Life isn't easy,
and love can be hard.
Marriage takes work,
and I couldn't afford a card!

So here's what I give you,
with all of my heart.
My life, my love, my soul,
please take every part.

I will always be yours,
for as long as you stay.
I hold hope deep inside,
that you want it that way.

Through all of these years,
that we have shared.
Not a day has gone by,
that you haven't cared.

We are blessed in this life,
for one another we've found.
Holding close to your heart,
what a beautiful sound.

I look forward to the many
more years we can share.
With all my love and support,
I will always be here!

Midnight Lullaby

I wrapped all my tears, to see you smile.
you are the best, always by my side.
I tell you my feelings will get you crying,
you must think I’m out of my mind.

You don’t know, what I know,
all the angels let me go.

We were born to teethe and die,
you will grow to be so fine.
Fall in love, feel your softer side,
Remember me when life is kind.

When you go, let me know,
don’t walk away like the world and go.

Life is rough and the world unkind,
fight them down and you will be fine.
The truth of live is a brutal sight,
make no mistakes, you can learn from mine.

You have a strong heart, you are unique
I treasure times when you smile at me.

Live the life, I could not find,
be there for me, when I say goodbye.

The Righteousness Of Love

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

US in JesUS

Before we were thought of or time had started, 
God put US in His Son’s name.. 
And each time we pray, you'll see its true, 
You can't spell Jesus without including US.  
Were a pretty big part of His wonderful name, 
For US, He was born; 
And His great love for US is the reason He died. 
Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand 
He rose from the dead, with US in His plan? 
The stones split away, the gold trumpet blew, egospelexpress
And His resurrection was for US.  
As JesUS left the earth with His wonderful ascension, 
When He felt there was one thing He just had to mention. 
"Go into the world and tell them it's true 
that I love them all - Just like I love you." 
So many people are Christian brothers and sisters, 
Don't all the others have a right to know JesUS too? 
It all depends on what we do, 
He'd like them all to know, 
But it all starts with US.

Coming home to you everyday

My best friend is just a few yards away
not feeling well she’s had a long day.
Right now in our bedroom watching a cooking show
I don’t under stand it, she knows all there is to know.

As with every thing else she always wants to do better
she gives it her best even when she’s under the weather. 

My best friend is my most loving wife
She has given me the best years of her life.

It’s been thirty nine years since I took her as my bride
That’s thirty nine years with my best friend by my side.	

A lot has happened since our day in September
some things forgotten but the best I still remember.

I remember the warmth and passion of our youth
I still feel it when I think of you and that’s the truth.

I remember worrying that my job would call me away
all I ever wanted was to come home to you everyday.

Ohhhh Rain : Shower again

A small romantic rain poem dedicated to hubby.
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

"Ohhhh Rain..Shower again!!!!! "  

Showering in the rain, 
Draining the pain!
Enflueraging the essence of arenicolous sand,
Feeling blessed porting on this beautiful greenary land! Trees were roaming 
under fiercing winds,
Thanks nature for benevolently so kind!
Sip of sizzling coffee With Caramalized sugar,
Cheers hubby to accompany me my gelling agar!
Wanna capture this Driplets of aromatic water nearby lake,
So that I can make an icy snowflake!
That's amazing, "but ohhhh God,  I wish my honey is here".

Dreamed of You Again Last Night

Dreamed that you loved me again

I saw it in your eyes

Filled with love and happiness

The words we wrote despised


The tears were writ upon the clouds

Your heart was not the prize

The words  we spoke  can't be unsaid

Our love has been capsized

The birds sang out ,"its all for naught."

My love is not for sale

I prayed for you upon my knees

Was hid behind the vale


The hope I felt moved inside my dream

The picture had been taken

I wanted  you to wait for me

Must have been mistaken


Woke to tears I see it clear

Gathered memories within my soul

Armies fought to cleanse the mess

Precious love was on the dole

The birds sang out ,"its all for naught."

My love is not for sale

I prayed for you upon my knees

You hid behind the veil

The birds sing with morning glory 

Love carried in a pail

My prayer's were never heard those nights

My ship put out to sail


I visit when asleep at night

We're  walking hand and hand

Hope those wicked birds sleep in

As we walk along the sand

Those birds are my alarm clock

As your vision slowly fades

Only see you as I dig the hole

It's best to use a spade

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes

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

The Intensifying love story

The Intensifying love story by 
I simply adore you, my Mesmerizing 
As you are my first love.
Who lighted my heart with full of pride and 
Who ignited the ecstasy towards lovely life.
Who relieved my pains and took sorrows 
as boon.
You made me fall sick in your love when I 
see your madness.
I like the way,
The way you gazed at me and my smoky 
The way you smiled at my mystifying and 
enigmatic appeal.
The way you every time praises me.
The way you galvanized me and proved 
the meaning of life.
You are the one,
Yes, you are the one who aroused my 
feelings, my emotions.
Yes, you are the one who explored my 
passion of love, flaming in my charismatic 
Yes, you are the lovely treasure which god 
had baptized me.
Yes, you are the one who turned the page 
of my life.
Eureka, I found my true love!!!!
Bewilderedly I did not know, where is my 
love taking me to ??
But still I like the way,
Like, the way you clutched me into your 
Like, the way you kissed my palms.
Like, the way you hugged me, caressed 
Like, the way you rubbed your fingers on 
my lips.
Like, the way you tickled me on my neck.
Like, the way you squeezed my cheeks.
Like, the way you holded me up towards 
the sky.
Like, the way when you inspired me to fly 
so high.
Tears dropped from my eyes and the very 
next moment I realized that it is my 
sensational love. My true love. Then I 
decided that no one had right to do this 
except you. If you want to know the 
reason?? If yes??
Yes, because I seriously fell in love with 
Yes, because you are the one to whom god 
had assigned me to.
And here comes the Swifted instance 
When, the moment you wore the golden 
ring in my finger and I was happily waving 
Just can’t forget the time when our long 
lasting friendship turned into lifetime 
It was just the blooming of two lover’s 
indicating the herald of the marriage. It 
means a lot for any girl in this amazing 
And yes, you will always find my heart 
topped with love showered only for you. 
For you!!
And till my last breathe, my heart beats, 
beating for you, only for you SUYOG!!
In fervour I wanted you to be mine forever, 
We both sojourned in each other soul so 
deeply that we just can’t wait for a single 
second, unless and until, we share what is 
running in our mind. It’s just because we 
are so much accustomed to each other 
I Love you, adore you, adore you forever

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Abomination scorn Affection Passion Yearning
Struggle Attempt Cherish Relationship Flame
Taste Tender Inner soul Bloom Bamboozle

I was a woman scorn 
Unknowingly  cherished a relationship
where the flame was no longer existent;
where time flew by in the distance and I missed
everything in my life I intended 
because I was accepting a me that depended
on him
I made an attempt to bamboozle the truth
and convince myself that he wasn’t screwing Kim
Ultimately I faked passion and lustfully feigned for affection
since I’d been betrayed
So, I got down on my knees and  I prayed 
I began yearning for knowledge of my Inner soul
I began to taste freedom and feel whole
The healing began and my consciousness rose - fresh bloom
It was no longer a struggle to end an abomination that would 
prove to be a path of doom

No valentine on Valentine's.
I haven't met one yet.
Each year I wait another

The warmth of a tender hug
comes when joy or pain is present,
and tears always fall to mark that moment...
some have even gone to the extent of writing a song!

Hugs given or received 
are never erased from anyone's mind...
they're as indelible as pictures, or even paintings 
that a devoted artist passionately painted to create a masterpiece! 

Who hasn't received an unexpected hug and felt fine?
Wasn't it full of warmth and tenderness? I'm fortunate enough 
to have received many and I can easily count them on my ten fingers!
Hugs of sympathy console persons mourning...they make them cope with death!
Hugs make one much stronger when endurance is weakened by little confidence!
Hugs given with a selfless heart show that they aren't compelled, but very genuine!

Why wouldn't the warmth
of a tender hug deeply penetrate
the bloodstream to let sadness leave
and be replaced by hope? Hugs are wonderful and we need them 
to help us through our day! Give hugs on every occasion: let them feel that
they are loved in February, May and June! Be that someone who never stops to give!

Remembering Belle

She was a devoted ole gal always at her best
so many days I cried hanging off her chest     
down to the lake in the hot summertime
we would cool her off and swing on a vine

Every morning at five am here came Belle, now my friend
and again at six pm there Belle was ready to work again
years passed and Belle became a part of our family
we worked, we played, and we milked twice a day

Half my life she was one of my dear friends
I greeted her in summer with warm sun burnt skin
and in winter I spent my time warming them
when Belle died I can't say things were ever the same again

Belle had become more than a cow in a pen, who gave us milk
she became a babysitter, a circus act, part of the swim team, for the neighborhood
but most of all Belle had become a lonely teen's dear friend

The Ghost I Knew

Can I catch you
Can you stay?
Forests at wood
There we play
A gentle hand 
That fixed the dress
Brushing tears back
Saving stress
I can not bare
The oaken wave
Only memories
Can I save
I miss your hair
And what it covered
More than a mind
God knows I loved her
The ghost I knew
She rests away
I can not catch you
You can not stay.

I See Diamonds In Your Eyes

Sixty years ago today we were happily united as husband and wife,
To begin that long anticipated, yet uncharted journey of wedded life!
Though you've been adorned with dazzling diamonds along the way,
They'll ne'er compare to the sparkle of diamonds in your eyes that day!

Diamonds gleamed in your eyes when we pledged our eternal love!
There's no doubt that our life together was ordained by heaven above!
How your eyes sparkled like diamonds when cuddling our babes at birth!
Of your love for them and least deserving me, there is no dearth!

Though our eyes have grown dim and we both wear crowns of gray,
I still see shining diamonds when I gaze into your eyes each passing day!
My beloved one, you are as beautiful now as the day we were wed.
To borrow a phrase, "Our journey has just begun! The best is yet ahead!"

The Cowboy Painting

I sit upon the sun-room wall
The man I was painted for has gone
Parted this life, now is pain free
Left 4 daughters who miss him so

His love for cowboys was well known
In charity shops the shelves would scour
For books and movies to be shown
Would watch and watch by the hour

His second love was Bruce Lee
Those movies he loved to see
Then there was rugby at the ref did shout
From his chair because he couldn’t go out

But so proud to be Welsh
On St David’s day would wear
 his Daffodil  with pride and
sing Cym Rhondda for all to hear

Now my 2 pictures look down and see
An old dog looking up at me
Am sure I saw the old dog wink
Nah it couldn’t, could it be he?

The Avatar is one of the above  mentioned painting I painted

It's My Birthday, It is Your Birthday

It’s My Birthday

It’s my birthday…  I look out the window there is no one for me owe so, owe so lonely poor me . 

It’s my  birthday…  you surprise me, with a Barber-Q grill  with a cooler that chills with a grin we show white grills.

Happy Birthday… it’s my Birthday I am still waiting,  it   is almost the end of my the day, just waiting on you to wish me a happy birthday which, well make my day. 

It’s my birthday…you do not remember that day, can we go out for we can remember that day?

It’s my birthday… I can share it or alone, some share it with a twin, or with a friend and the ones who stay to the ends like a good friend.

It my birthday…  its looks like another day to me I just need someone or something to comfort with me a room full of women and with hand full men, a juice in cup, juice in glass, with a sweet lady and grill on cut grass that may make every day feel like my birthday, with a touch of class. 
It’s your birthday… it’s your birthday you should all-ways win on your birthday, if do not have a mate you sneak and go on second party date form those who may player hate.  
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!  it comes and go, I see you come through, looking out my window with a hand full company that is what a party really should need, yes it’s sweet, sweet with music and sweet with treats or  it must be the money, or food, or brinks, or just me.

You're The Only One For Me

I love you darling for your devotion and unconditional love
We've had a special relationship since the day we met
I've only to ask for help my dear and you've been there for me
Lying with you everyday you whisper tender words in my ear
Later we'll make love and I'll fall asleep in your loving arms
Lovely romantic gifts such as chocolates, candy and flowers
Over the years you've given me to show how much you care
Valuable than gold are the memories we've shared my love
Evermore to be in my heart and remembered each year from now
You're my sunshine in the morning and my stars at night
Our first kiss is one that I'll remember the rest of my life
Until I met you I didn't know what it meant to be loved
As I walked towards you down the aisle on our Wedding Day
Looking very proud as you stood there in your black suit
Waiting for me to join you at the altar with a smile on your face
As I stood beside you there, together we recited our vows
You and I were now joined as one, as husband and wife
Since that day we've been on a journey side by side for life.

Valentine's Day is very special to us because it was the day that my husband proposed to me as well. It's a time for Lovers.

My Forever Friend

My love for so many years,
She boosts my spirit,
She dries my tears,
She arouses my senses.

I see her move across the floor,
No, glide, would describe it more,
Moving as languid as a lioness,
She thrills me with her prowess.

She is sensual, erotic,
To me she is hypnotic.
If I were a ship I'd run aground,
Simply if she were not around.

She is my love until life's end,
She is my forever friend.
Without her my life's an empty space,
For she, I know, I could not replace.

 Twilighting glow of the sky..
 Wanna fly so high..

 Sparkling amidst the million stars..
 chosen the crazy pal and so life is excellently par.. 

 As like the blossom were kissed by soft rain..
 Your arrival in life diminished all my pains..
 God has entwined me..with my emarald diamonite gem..
 Enlightening new vistas in life as like your next aim.. 

 At an astounding pace time flew..
 But When i didn‘t see you..I feel like..Life is been dew..

 Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..
 Every tick of my heartbeat resonating wit your‘s or whatever it will be..

 Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..
 But yep, your beautifying nature had an fragrance in life like lilly..

 As like snow crested the nestled mountains..
 You cuddled my a sip of fountains..

 Being With you, Life is euphorically elated..
 Full of high spirit and delighted..

 Thanks for being accompanying me my theist..

 Your admirer with lots n lots of Love:

Happy Birthday

We were on the road
the road that ended somewhere
something flew right into my eyes
I closed my eyes for a while
but then you were gone
we could have made it
to the end where our dreams
were waiting for us,
but then they were shattered into pieces
somehow you changed,
those pieces were not small enough for you
then you broke them into even smaller pieces
and still all those broken pieces
if it were to be re arranged would
have your name on it
we had our share of fun, laughter
and great memories, that will
walk with me to my deathbed
but now its too late to be reminded it
your face with a stranger
everyday on the electronic screen
I'm still the same way you left me some
four years ago,
and you're not the same person that you were
things have changed,
they've been rearranged
nothing looks familiar anymore
specially you
but I still cannot forget those times
and even though I hate you for what you did
how could I forget this day
even if those memories in your head
lay there alone to rust
Happy Birthday to you, old friend
and Happy birthday to us!

(1 January 2013 – 12:01AM)

By this first day of the year 2013
I am asking anyone to forgive me if I have things done that hurt you. 
I was sudden with the firecrackers
Sounds of bullets flying in the air
This is becoming a culture
That by the end and start of the year there shall be having a gun fire
Is this so not to put a gun as inutile?
I have no new year’s resolution at hand 
But I wanted to do my best to change whatever things needed to be changed. 
Oh God please witness my changes to manifest in my entire being 
from good to very good, from ordinary to extra ordinary and from evil to no evil. 
Let me love memories of 2012 that I have
Please forgive me God through everyone’s forgiveness.
I love everyone and someone. 
Thank you God!

Shut your eyes,
open your heart.
What do you see?
Can you picture this wonderful life
spent with me?
Fear not,
For the angels above,
blew trumpets to sound for my one true love.
Could this be?
Are you the one God sent to me?
If it is true,
My soulmate I've found
My heart is yours
I give it to you!

A 3 HOUR TOUR--Right here on Gilligan's Island---

Our love is like Gilligan's Island
but what we have is so much more
And to all the girls that I've loved before
they are but Brady Bunches on three hour tours

Cheers to the ladies on that Island 
but you're my "Mary-Ann" and my "Movie Star"
come take my hand-in-hand, with candy tan 
you're the best of both worlds,  but much better by far

I have "Profess"ed to be your "Skipper"
tho' I'm "Thurston" for you like I do Mrs. Howell,
when you "Lovey" dove me with coconuts,
I can't help but go nuts, NOW GET ME A TOWEL!~~

My Mysterious Boyfriend

Ring, ring, ring ~ my phone rang in the middle of the night I picked it up, my voice as pale as a ghost so white "Melissa, it's me at the park in half an hour" My boyfriend of 3 years, what could he want this very hour? I wasted not a moment, I'm set and grabbed my keys I hurried down the stairs and nearly fell on my knees I'm nervous as hell, couldn't stop wondering of what's going on On my way, I prayed "Lord, let this be of light's dawn". I made it just in time, I saw him standing by a tree I walked closer, my face full of questions deeper than a sea He stared at me with eyes so silent, his body in a freeze I searched his mind but nothing to find, I felt the wind's cold breeze. He reached for my hand and handed me a piece "Open it Melissa, please...Don't let my warm heart miss, A smile of yours, or tears that I someday may no longer see" I shed tears of yes as he went on his knee... "Happy Anniversary, Will You Marry Me?"

One ingredient of the artists is woman 
That is why they love their mothers
I love to become an artist
So I will love my mother
She is the precious ingredient of my life
Not less than the love that speaks out itself
She is my womb when I was alone
She is my hug when I am in tears
Now I am old still I love her
I love her, I love her, I love her
So much...
I need to be old for me to get young
I realized that in my younger days
I don’t give a damn to loving her
But requested many things as if I don’t care
I love my mother, please forgive me!
I love you so much 
Never and never will you leave me?
I am indeed wanted to become an artist
But the real artist is my mother
Never surrendered to hardship
I will stop not to end
Remember I wanted to become an artist
And you are my ingredient!

You Are The Girl Who Touched My Heart

I remember the day I thought I'd 
never fall in love.
You are the girl that fell from above,
The day I thougnt my heart was 
You showed me I wasn't alone,
I dont know what came over me,
I don't know how this could be,
I cant explain what you did to me,
I just hope you love me, 
Like a light shining in the dark,
You are the girl who touched my 
In a blink of an eye,
You fell from the sky,
You are God's surprise,
Because of the way you are,
You shine like a star,
And your eyes glance so light,
Bright as an angel,
My twisted heart untangled,
I was blessed from the start,
You are the girl who touched my

Love,Life and Death

Life and death
Are mysterious things
You love a living one
in your Heart, 
By your heart 
You also  love a dead one
But in your Mind, in your memory
When your beloved is no more 
When she is dead
Your love shifts places
From Heart to Mind 
You want her corpse to be removed
as soon as possible 
and buried, burnt in fire
Or left to the vultures
depending on what last ceremonial plan
 you believed in 
and chose to perform
Living ones are loved 
Dead ones too 
but death is so scary 
that whenever someone dies
one tries to get rid of him atonce!

If It Wasn't For You

If it wasn’t for your eyes
I would have nothing to gaze upon,
If it wasn’t for your lips
I would have nothing to place mine on.
If it wasn’t for your hair
I would have nothing to stroke,
Because of your understandings
I have reasons to cope.
If it wasn’t for your hands 
I would have nothing to reach out to,
If it wasn’t for your smile
Each of my days would be blue.
If it wasn’t for your arms
I would know no caress,
Not the heat from another
While touching chest to chest.
If it wasn’t for you
What would I do,
I truly haven't the slightest clue.

Happy Father's Day: Your Sweat Is My Increase

your left hand was hard, but your right, gracious putting me in the balance of Love of which its fulcrum is discipline and respect. Your weaknesses were classified just to ensure I see beyond mine Your chastisement was not without pain of which its appreciation is a strong indicator of my gradual maturity. You always guard the gates of my territory like a Centurion and fight against all antigens like a warlock. You taught me how to be complete and provided the staff and Ass as I journey across Life and appreciate. I initially thought of you differently when you gave me the partially made sandal, when you refused to help with the air-tight metal box, when you gave me bone while milk was still my best delicacy when you laughed at me while I'm confused and worst of all, stopping Mum to come to my rescue. I never knew they were task of Life I most needed, finishing off the sandal made me industrious, opening the box, made me determined and never relenting, chewing the annoying bone made me grow up; your scorn and laughter actually made me decisive and rescuing myself made me independent. All these sum up to making me a MAN! Which makes you my Hero and role model. Before I was, there was you; in fact, I am in existence because of you. I've always clinged unto you as my Life's support but you allow me make my mistakes so as to be the best gadget. Your regulation of Mum's affections only makes me be an unspoilt egg. I always increase when you sweat and your headaches are stepping stones to my zeniths. You are such an irreplaceable asset and your love, so refreshing as the evening air. What more can I say and how else can I show gratitude? As much as I know, you need none of these, One thing I must always say is, I LOVE YOU DAD!

Can You Be Mine

She's marking my direction,
It's her that I see,
And there's nothing I can say or do,
She's struting down the street,
With fire in her feet,
And I'm thinking I should make a move,

No steps I heard,
She glides like a bird,
And her eyes sparked a perfect blue,
Her voice blew like the trees,
I fell to my knees,
As she said how do you do,

(chorus): 2x
I said, can you be mine,
Can you be mine,
I said, Can you be mine,
Love me forever and more,

Her eyes opened wide,
As though she was surprised,
She didn't know what to say,
She grabbed a pen and wrote down her number,
Before I asked her for her name,
She said her name was Lisa,
I said so nice to meet ya,
This girl, was playin heard to get,

I said I know you've been hurt in the past,
But you won't be hurt this time,
Her hair was so soft and beautiful,
So I told her not to pay a dime,

(Chorus): 3x

(I love the way you movin ya body, baby)
(I got so excited, baby)
(That's the way, you got me, you got me)

Blessed By God Loved By An Angel

My love's heart tells a story
that I read within her smiling eyes
that only I can read
for they tell me how much she cares
and loves me
and no happier man could I be

Just a short time away from her
and I'm like a lost lonely child
in her I've found the sweetest paradise
she adds so much vibrant colour to my life

She makes everyday a glorious 
summers day
and I'm so thankful
that I pray

For I feel that I've been 
blessed by God
who made her just for me
and I'm being loved
by an angel.

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing
8 trousers 
7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners
and an engagement ring under the tree

Love breeds hate, we are her children,
lost and scared, blasé and meek.
We curse the ones who left us lonely
and blame the ones who made us weak.

Love will shove you to the ground,
on all your fours to crawl through dust.
You'll lift your head towards the sunrise
to catch some light but only just.

Love breeds fear, now watch me shiver:
too scared to open up the door,
in case in comes another stranger
to add more damage to the sore.

Love will leave you lying breathless,
your body scattered on the bed.
A hopeless pilgrim gone off radar,
still longing for the words she said.

Love will show you the error
of your pathetic little ways.
With every hand the stake gets higher
and in the end - the loser pays.

Love will never give you pity,
too many fallen, fools galore.
A lesson learnt, I should know better
but here I am, begging for more...

First Date

One April day, that changed my life You lived nearby, a drive not far I picked you up, with nerves a rife Blessed my dad, had loaned me his car. I drove you slowly, together alone Savoring each moment, you smelled divine I loved your accent, the kind words you spoke Upon Air Base now, while I on cloud nine. Together on tarmac, we strolled and made small talk Watching planes fly, fortunate in your presence Inside one huge plane, upon stern gate we walked Clasping hands and hearts, my first glimpse of Heaven. It was our first date, the initial of many Thirty-seven years ago, on this April tenth Since then, our love remaining solid a plenty Selflessly sharing each’s unlimited strength. My lifetime a thank you, for giving me love Being the one, my affectionate soul mate Through mostly good times, quite many thereof Defining the source, it was that very first date!

Love To The Music

The music pumps the groove,
The music makes me move,
The music lights my heart,
The music bangs so hard,

The music makes me dance,
The music brings romance,
The music crowds the place,
And the music relates,

The music makes me wanna dance,
All night long,
The music makes me wanna dance,
And feel this song,
The music makes me wanna love you,
All night long,
(We can love)
To The Music

The music lights my soul,
The music takes control,
The music makes you love,
The music is a drug,
The rhythm of us being in love,

I Love To Cry

When you dont look at me,
With other things to do when you are busy.
You seldom turn around and smile
You are with me, but just for a while.

I think of what will make me sad
Of things which ever make me mad.
And isolate myself away from you,
Wandering around what next to do.

And a long wait, a peek from the corner of my eye;
Feeling the pain grow, as to forget I try.
And then when it is already too late,
I notice your concerned stride past the gate.

You cuddle me, like a baby you hold,
Trying to reassure your love pre-told.
To get you near me, look at me, I could die;
And that is one reason I love to cry...

Twenty one years of your love,
Twenty one years of your hugs,
A tale of our happy home,
All wrapped in one poem,

Our wonderful kids,
Twenty one years of bliss,
We now sing in chorus,
How much this means to us,

And it doesn't need to be said,
The best times are ahead,
Where our love always will,
Grow even moreso still,

I love your scrunched up grin,
You are indeed my best friend,
You have cared for me always,
And now I want more todays,

When you jump in my arms,
Full of pure love and charm,
I thank the Lord for all I have,
As a spoiled husband and Dad,

So on this most precious and revered day,
Vickie, I love you in every possible way,
And thank the Lord you agreed to marry,
Me, on this great day, our anniversary,

a woman of prayer,
 a woman of staying power, 
a woman of grit,
 a woman of hope, 
a virtuous woman full of beauty

If you know any tell me, 
i will sell off all i have got
 to pursue such
a rare thing 
I will try to last heart beat
till she is mine
and mine alone

Flaming Reflection : " Bon Appetite "

My Dear Carolyn, I want to Thank-YOU for YOUR Contest “ The Work You Do? ”
I usually Do not Brag, but I’m going to in this Piece I also may throw in  Kitchen Humor
I Dedicate this to YOU : Carolyn Devonshire My POETRY “ TEACHER “ LOVE, HG

The first two quotes I heard in the beginning of My Career
“People will always Eat” ( Chef Lis ) : “People eat with their eyes” :
( Mr. Franklin Whalen ; ) Owner  of The “Barrington House Restaurant”
Forty-Four years later, the Sonata of these words Still Rings in my ears

The Aromas, sweet and spicy, sour ,tart, fruity, meaty, waif through my nose
I remember the smell of burning starch, elbows set in ice cold water on the stove, two hours
Taste buds come alive, epicurean;  connoisseurs : enticing  The palette soothing the throat
I read my breath, in the dire cold of the freezer:  a block of ice becomes A Heart of Swans 
         The Center Piece of Mr. & Mrs. Posner’s 75th Wedding Anniversary Dinner
On a Pedestal , in the centre of the “Swan Heart : I carved the “POSNER"  Holding Hands
How Sweet, When they asked me “Would You makes us one of YOUR Classic Dinners?”
“The Rack of Lamb, with the Plum- Mint Jelly” “ Don’t forget his Famous “Béarnaise Sauce”
A Vegetable Bouquetire , Cottage Fries, with a special “Flaming Cherries Jubilee” for Desert
Perhaps, as they did when : Young : Their eyes found each other, as they fed each other
The Gleam in their Eyes, reflecting the Jubilee’s flame Opening the Mirror of Their “ L O V E “
As a Chef The work I do is very Rewarding and I shall Cook until I die( and even Then!! )

One Night Only

It’s been crazy these past few days
You’ve showed me so much
As your smiles pass my glance
And reunite with your soft, tender touch
Against my cheek you drag those hands
And press your finger against my lips
Come in for the temptation
Closer… Closer….. And fall back from the kiss
I but smile, and keep staring…
Into those gorgeous blue eyes
Look away for just a second
And softly apologize…
You chuckle… and grab me from my hair
Pull me over for a long, overextended kiss
Passionate as always...
Am left in awww…. And with no way to resist
How you weaken me
When you run your fingers …
Along the top side of my shoulders
While the rest quietly linger.
Caressing the skin….
Arousing and heightening the senses
How you give me Goosebumps
And break through my defenses
Legs tightly gripped against my thigh
As you u lean your head back
As if alluring me to a death stricken invitation
And I but only whisper in your ear… Relax …
As I make my warm, exuding body
Over your soft, well poised figure
Lowering my head as to instill the first move
But abruptly intercepted by your wild vigor…
With a quick step am turned over
You… now playing the dominate role
No time to question the outcome
In this embrace of heated souls…

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

Soaring strength; gliding above earth.

And brightens love along the way.

Your kindness perceives my wishes.
You fill me fully with your love.
Your helpfulness precedes my need.
You sacrifice your time, good deeds.

The brightest star both far and near!

Shall shine throughout eternal time.

Gaily in this new kingdom found.

Bought for you where angels abound.

High in the heavens up above,

Far away, gleaming in the sky.
Waits your wishing star named, “Ingrid”.

Forever, dreaming as one heart.
Loving as millennium stars.

I liked her hair long

I liked her hair long
my bronze pennant in a slight breeze,

smiling face framed in the soft light
dappled skin through broken trees,

timeless smile hinted laughter
hidden under locks both coy and bold

as we smiled at our time together
secured now young and soon as old,

grasping hands
grasping eye
grasping at remembered moments...
as time just flies on by,

dreams last long as sunbeams
as a cloud moves to overtake

winter pallor'd dropping leaves
we took as much time as we could rake, 

sitting next to winter's hearth
hands clasped in a familiar tether

we welcome season's end 
life lived well and loved together.

A New Year Song

The garrish glares light now the sky
And upward turns the people's eye
In every heart a silent longing
On every saged heart a silent wish
For all things old must swiftly perish
And all embrace the year's new coming
And all be glad to sing
A love song to the king
A love song to the king
And all be glad to sing
To God who promised everything
And saved us on eagle's wing
And light gleams a thousand hopes
A thousand kisses bring
And marching feet conquer new the slopes
And happy children sing
The new year, the new year, another chance
To live, and love again, and laugh, and dance
And worship new the king
And worship now the king

No Expectations

A very wise person said to me only yesterday
Why do you have such expectations in life
If you have expectations, you will only be disappointed
It was like a light bulb suddenly lighting up in my head
Of course that is where I have gone so astray in life
I have always had expectations and have always been let down
A Parent has expectations that their grown up children will call
A wife has expectations that on her Anniversary a fuss will be made
Children have expectations that the world around them swirls
Men have expectations that their wives will at them always swoon
Oh yes one can have dreams and hopes and future plans
But the word expectation means eager anticipation
In other words the total act of expecting what you want to be given
Now flowers can be given on an Anniversary to celebrate love
If you are not expecting the gift, then what a pleasure it becomes
So expectation is really a Want, I want the kids to call
I want you to love me, I want you to need me, I want you always
Love should be given not demanded, love should be free
Kids will call if they love you and care about making you content 
Flowers should be given from the heart not expected as a right
A person in anguish should not cry out for you to save them
A person in anguish should love themselves enough to save themselves
We should not expect a rainbow in the sky, but be happy when it is there
Things should be given freely not expected, then that is real joy
I will from today try to expect nothing, and in the process grow stronger.

Woman of God, 
A Diamond is what you are,
Beautiful & special & sweet,
A diamond a person would strive for,

Guided us and teached us the right thing to do,
And I appreciate you,

Husband and wife sit across from each other,
eyes meeting over that old kitchen table.
No words are spoken.

A girlish smile breaks over the wife’s face, 
a grin follows across her husbands.
Faces they each know so well,
 a thousand stories could be told.

Memories flood the quiet between them,
 going back oh so many years.
Time reeling them both back into youthful days
 when a lifetime was stretched before them.
Remembering the first time their eyes met, 
the husband could still see that spark in her eyes.
A first date the wife waiting for his arrival, 
she remembers being swept off her feet by him
 at the doorstep.

Husband and wife take another step down
 that lane of memories.
that first kiss the wife can still feel it,
 just like it happened yesterday.
Tender when he held her face, 
gently in his hands, so sweet was that moment. 
She still remembers the words he murmured,
 whispering softly. 
“I could love you for the rest of my life.”

That first kiss led them to a dance floor.
 When they danced their first dance, 
holding each other tight in each other’s arms. 
It was as if it was only the two of them on that dance floor. 

The husband and wife dance down memory lane.
To meet each other’s parents a most important moment. 
To know of family and kinship. 

The wave of memories takes them to when, 
the husband was before her on one knee.
 So humbled was he, 
asking the wife to build a life with him. 
The wife had cried in delighted surprise. 
She could remember her joy, at the promise of a life together. 
He still brought joy to her life.

Traveling down memory lane together,
 to the alter they went. 
Where each pledged solemn vows,  in earnest to each other.
 To last them all the days of their life.

The husband and wife could hear the ring of their children’s laughter,
 greeting them with children of their own. 
This anniversary is one of many.

That first look. 

The first kiss.
A first dance. 

First promises. 

The first I love you is where it began, all those years ago. 
Where it has led to is the husband and wife sitting at that old kitchen table, 
gazing into each other’s faces.
Not a word needs to be spoken.

Our Legacy

He is my fortress and my strength
His love he has proven at length
In times of sickness and in times of health
He has remained open not stealth.
In youth we loved passionately
With children we loved affectionately
In middle age we loved calmly
With age we love patiently.
Many decades we leave behind us
Yet a few decades remain ahead of us
We are free to say what is on our mind
Knowing we’ve survived the test of time.
When money we had little of 
When children were ill 
When we were hurt by family or friends – 
When one was ill, the other thrived
we held on
so neither was ever left behind.
This is the legacy we leave 
Not of a love that is divine
But of a love that has ridden the roller coaster ride
 And survived.

Waking from an everlasting dream Immersed in twilight falling through the looking glass to me this seems a dream. Yet to dream seems to be akin to loves eternal spell. Rivers of milk and honey run freely through the gardens in which we frolic and play, this magnificent scene seems to real to be a dream so my love is it a spell or a dream. Each night we fall into this everlasting dream spell. eternal love eternal peace a promise made true by the goddess Aphrodite herself...

When I hold your hand

When I hold your hand

Bonded for Eternity

The Love we share for one another 
Can never be broken 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We are not only bonded 
Through the eyes of God 
We are bonded through love 
We are bonded through marriage 
We are bonded through our son also 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We may not show our love to the public eye 
We may not show it to our families 
But the love is there behind the mask 
That we both carry 
We are bonded for Eternity 

We may say hurtful things to one another 
We may do hurtful things to one another 
But the love we share Can never be broken 
We are and always will be 
Bonded for all of Eternity

Night Melody

 .                         The wind blows,
                     The night melody flows,
       We dance away under the full moon,

Our hands clinging together creating a tune,
  The melody of two falling in love so soon,
           The rhythm of a great bliss to me,
                      Our first kiss so lovely,
                              Night melody

For the seasons bring thoughts to my young mind, 
The reaction to each accordingly, 
Your thought brings one season in mind to find, 
I smile, but then I cry, suprisingly. 

The summer, one season so intense, 
Emotions rush when I hear your sweet voice, 
Sometimes the thought does not make any sense, 
But having you to hold is the best choice. 

Even so, it's not the same when you're gone, 
Winter creeps in my mind like the darkness. 
The coldness I get when am all alone, 
I can't be without you, I must confess. 

My love, knight in shining armor, my king; 
I wake up everyday, glad to be your queen.

To You My Love

I love you,
More than you know,
Cause you are,
The beating of my heart,
My every thought in my mind,
When we are apart,
You are my everything,
That makes me whole and complete,
You have touched me in so many ways,
That words can not begin to explain,
Cause you have done all this,
Without saying a word,
Without a physical touch,
Without any type of sign,
You have done all of this wonderfulness,
By being your sweet kind self,
This is what makes you,
One of a kind,
And a very special person,
And no matter what may happen in time,
You will always be happy,
And loved by all,
Especially me cause,
You are here in my heart,
To stay.

The Vacation - Part 1 of 7

I'm discharged from the hospital up and well
And to the world about the incident I begin to tell.....


Last week on a cruise we had set on a vacation, 
Jake and I for our anniversary celebration,
On which day the destination we had to reach
Was a holiday resort aside the beach.

That morning I sing and awaken him,
Create special anniversary moments on film.
What disturbed us was the knock on the door
Opened it not knowing what was in store.

Masked men barged in with guns and knives,
For a moment we couldn't believe my eyes.
Jake tried to defend me,I stood scared in fright,
And within no time they had held us tight.

They were soon getting us off,one by one
On some deserted island with no where to run.
How to get away?There was no clue.
Only God could help for our rescue.

I had thought this to be a day we'd cherish forever, 
Never expected it to be filled with terror.
Why had I planned for this vacation ?Why
Tears rolling down,I began to cry.

I hugged Jake and said that I was sorry, 
We were in this mess all because of me.
He consoled me, wiped my tear
And said that we'd get through this, no need to fear.

The Fourth Of July: A Lie 'or The Star Spangled Banner

We clad ourselves in colors as we march,
saluting independence through a foggy dream;
gazing at the night alight with flashes,
and firefly screams.

Rockets made in China, cascade/
to the backdrop of the Star Spangled Banner;
a flutter to the wind blown flags made in Brazil
and "I Love America Pins" upon our lapel;
(made in Mexico).

We stand on oceanfront (it’s owned by France)
gazing ‘pon the open sea,
the port is owned by Saudis/
but at least we stand here free.

Our hands steadfast upon our chest,
saluting whichever freedoms still remain,
those freedoms, their going fast;
and they’ll disappear one day.

We gaze into the abyss of night,
the twinkling tears that kiss our cheek,
immersing ourselves in awe of moment,
before it fades our dreams to sleep.

We stand enamored with this land,
the love that lurks within our hearts,
we celebrate this love/ part;

fore tomorrow, standing is banned.

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.

You do not expect me I am going to describe the stands
Or the moon that is reflected on the river's water
Or the ghostly tribes running along Winnibigoshishi Lake,
Up to the Shakopee and down to the Sioux City,
But the holdings and the last fragrances
Thatt have been grown along my Mississippi Nights.

Since my childhood, no shadows, no scarlet
Has been broken, and back I go:
I was five years old, teeny and dark, so beautiful around my mother's arms,
All proud and bough, and I sung all summer
As I was watching my Mississippi Nights.

Long tales as they had been told through the stripped dance 
And drowsy learning, yet it already has been  told by wrinkled faces,
And by those toothless mouths, that arisen sun has gone,
In such fashion of pain and smoke,
But no one could tell me after the long ceremony
How beautiful and still my Mississippi Nights.

From the South to the North; from Granite Falls to
Prairies Island, I knew every stone and leaf, the flavor
Of the smokes and shine, the cute young Indian girls
Who were best known, that by June 
I fell and hit -- even though I was skinny and dumb --
Every girl in delight but there was nothing like than my Mississippi Nights.

As a man now so unique and coward!
From whom I have got no Indian Blood Left,
Princely I bent. Not to risen against the Great Spirit
Even perhaps by pain and love I should say
But I was still looking at myself through my Mississippi Nights.

Graceful and healthful to the tradition I call you too my strong boy.
Along with my Indian woman, now fifty-two, and caring spring she has before;,
Through the lower Sioux, and the higher St. Cloud and beyond,
And somewhat south and north, I must demand
To myself to see once more my Mississippi Nights.

Felt, so good,

How could this be,
A girl just like me,
Who knows, the things,
I need,
(How could this be)

I came across, a bliss,
How could I forget,
How it made me feel, girl

I'm still, in love,
With you,
In the back of my mind,

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

Once around the sun anniversary

“I love you,”
We said it a year of times
As love is aged
The more it’s prime

Every last one means more
Than the first time said
Our love, we grew to adore
As our hearts stay red

Journey around the sun
We make mistakes, and we learn and take
In for the better, and improve for the best
And always enjoy the life we make

I hug, you hug
I kiss, you kiss
I love, you love
With bliss that can be miss

Life is filled with burdens
And incomprehensible fun
We learned a lot about life together
Once around the sun

A Poem for her Majesty the Queen on her Jubilee

To be English above all is not just a given, from the beginnings of time to the new world position.

It is of bravery and honour that has built the empire we know, that no matter what we may face no matter how big the enemy or challenge we will not quiver we shall not shudder nor walk away, our upper lip will remain stiff and the lions heart our enemy will feel in protection of Queen and country.

In a world of corruption and deceit, floundering morals as sources try to wash them away, inside this mayhem will always lay a loyal army to her Majesty and country that will fight tooth and nail to protect.
No matter the hatred or non believers we shall not fall. 

The most powerful family in the world that has ruled through generations of change and is echoed through the story of time this is my promise to you your Majesty we will always be here waiting on your every word to follow and serve as your loyal army. 

May GOD save the Queen and protect her people through time,
For we are ENGLAND . .  full of love . . . full of Pride!

Happy Anniversary

To my Wife, Minnie, married September 26, 1981

Here’s wishing a Happy Anniversary 
To my nearest, dearest friend;
Who’s been right here beside me 
For years and years on end.
You’ve helped me climb a few ladders
Of success during difficult times;
When others didn’t believe in me 
You were my shadow right behind.
Everything I did and said 
Rather I was right or wrong;
Believing in me always
When I was weak or strong.
You lifted me and gave me strength 
When no one else was there;
And called me names like “Sweetie Pie”
To show how much you cared.  
We had some fun and raised our young
To have faith and believe that wishes;
Come true in the end if we have a few friends 
As I found in you and all your kisses.
The years have passed and we have lasted 
Longer than most would have guessed;
And all I can say is 
Happy Anniversary today 
To the one that I’ve loved best.

You're like the storm and the wind, 
Tearin up the city and breaking the 
Whenever I'm around you girl, 
I get weak, 
You're breaking my heart, 
And tearing up me, 
Breaking my heart, 
Breaking my heart,  (Tearing up me)

I know we will make it, 
Even though the wind is blowing 
careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'll get weak, 
Stop breaking my heart, 
Bringing me to my knees,

Even though the love hurricane is 
blowing careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'm too weak, 
You breaking my heart, 
You're the storm of the week.

But for the past few BRAKE UP'S my heart has been broken.

But no tears to shead.

But when the brake up come's face to face I don't cry.

But I do feel miserable, and helpless, and very ticked off.

Teach Me How to Dance

You said, “You and Me” is true and polite way
“You” must come first before the word “Me”, 
“Do YOU love ME? ” I asked sincerely
You answered, ”****, yes Hon, I really do love you, badly! ”

Looking for a tuxedo, you asked me if it fits you
I said I like the way you first dressed, the first time I admired you.
I liked the way you gentlemanly dressed 
You smiled devilishly, I am impressed, 
And that suit revealed best fit on your chest! 

I like most to wear my best bare back gown
Cling to your arm, dance with the music’s sublime.
Yet you said, “Teach me how to dance, Hon, I have never known.”
“Let your heart teach you; it will make you step on time.
And you’ll see…you can bring me to a dance only our hearts can rhyme! ”

“But I will step on your feet…” you uttered in sorry
Hmn… You know you can’t harm my feet, I have no worry, 
Our hearts will guide us to a dance we have never imagined
You and I, I and you… dance in rhythm… ’till US is through…

Let’s dance.

two peas in a pod: tribute to Pastor and Mrs. Arlee Griffin

you met each other at turning points in your lives
many would call that destiny
you'd found out you both had so much in common
you then entered into matrimony
you were both from modest means
but the most important thing
is that you both had a shared love for God
on one accord like two peas in a pod

after leaving college you both went to work
an assumed leadership in a southern baptist church
but that was not the end of the story
because for you both continued to God the glory
one day you were blessed with a cute little baby
you called her Angel for she was a perfect little lady
then the Lord told you to pick up your staff and rod
for He had a new mission for His two peas in a pod

God sent you a vision He sent you a dream
you then received a request from a church named Berean
you were compelled to venture forth
the voice of the Lord told you both to go north
and upon following God's appointing
you both received another blessed anointing
the Lord gifted you with another precious baby girl
whom you proceeded to name Ariel
and now with your family situation complete
there would be other challenges for you both to meet
and as long as you both continue to honor and love the Lord God
He will be the strongest vine for His two peas in a pod

Bones of rotting timbre mimic 
morgues of truth
Pleading memories of oaths to rigor 
mortised youth
Snide sacrosanct hides under 
shrouds of pride
placing careful snares under 
gleaming stares
These selective few
they ingratiate you...
Even the doubtful  few
These ephemeral ghosts clapping at 
unspoken jokes
Wheezing from their throats to 
laugh as they choke.

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky?

The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.

Then I will go get our leaf blower and make it to blow…
Bubbles and Valentine hearts high in the air…everywhere… 
When my Hubby reaches our home and walks in the door…
I’ll cover him in hearts full of love… with kisses galore…
Yes, I’ll show him my heart… As he walks in…

An Angel

An angel did befriend us, on earth, before one Christmas day.
Some say she was a comet, some say she was a star.
I say she was a gift from God, here to light our way.
She was a thing of beauty that shone across the land.
Leading to a humble manger, found in Bethlehem.

And what could be so important, for her to come our way?
A savior to our lands, and yes, our hearts and souls…
Triumphantly born on Christmas Day.
That day he was born the heavens truly did rejoice.
And she, a glorious light, continued to beacon forth God’s love.

Such an important part, that angel was given on that day.
She was a beacon to our hearts and the gifts of love… 
Guiding the Wise Men and shepherds endlessly along their way.
Thru her we learned lessons, such as: patience, hope, and how to give…
And yes, she led us to the Wondrous Man, who taught us how to live…

Tree of Love

To My Wife On Valentines Day 2015

Tree of Love   by JT Curtis

Once a year I walk to
A wooded lot by me
It doesn't take me very long
To find that special tree
There, dwells sweet memories,
As my love for you still grows 
That's why I've carved this heart, for you
So many years ago

I'm reminded of the first time
I saw you standing here
I heard a voice, a silent voice
Like Cupid in my ear
So, I walked up to this tree
and with my pocket knife
I carved the message in its bark 
"Will you please be my wife"

Now every Valentines 
I'm sure to make my way
Down to this old tree
That's still standing here today
And take out my old knife
To carve another heart
To show the world, I still love you
And that we'll never part

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

Perfect Mate

My girl is cute, my girl is petite
my girl is uniquely a methodical smoker like me,
and also like me she's in touch with her spirituality,
and ever so increasingly she's always inspiring me

Inspiring me to be the true me,
she knows i'm the man, she's really feelin' T
see I always knew I would meet someone like you,
someone who really gets me and sticks to me like glue

I could never be sick of you, we're just on the same page,
we both give God praise and we both like to blaze,
so pay attention son to the words that you write,
the thoughts that you think-make sure you choose them right

Remember everything is a choice, ask your inner voice 
watching for signals of discomfort, blocking out all outside noise,
and begin to rejoice as you glide through this life, 
always grateful for this power and this ever-present might.

 Fore your beauty seized me
and your charm captivated
Loving you is my addiction
I just cant get enough

:sigh of relief:

Words spoken in silence,

Like a look or a tear, although concise

Can echo a lifetime in your ear,

Much louder than those you can hear.

Wedding Gift

Love is kind, honest and true.
This poem I write, A gift from me to you.

Searching hard for love
In this uncertain world you've come
to one your certain of.

Finally you've found each other
the one whom you will love forever.

Destiny attained through all time and space,
you have found each other by Gods sweet gift of grace.

Eternal love has been granted
by our Lord
Your lives enchanted.

Today is the day
A brand new start.
Open your arms
Open your heart
for you have found
your one true counterpart.

                                                 REMEMBER ME

Remember me in the morning,
Remember me at night,
Remember me throughout your day,
And all will be alright.

As long as you are with me,
As long as I'm with you,
As long as I can hold you close,
And know your love is true,

Though I forget a hundred things,
As time and ties betide,
I won't forget a single thing,
That we've done side by side;

And when our time is over,
And our song is sung,
I will have not one regret,
when all is said and done.

Wedding Poem

Today is the day we join in life and love.
To love, honor, respect, each other forever.
As we live in this life, and in Heaven above.
God bonds us together today and forever.
We join in union together in heart as one.
Our minds intertwined not put aside by any.
We share this day with all who live in Heaven.
For those who have gone on their path, before us.
Let Angels ring the bells, which sound in Heaven.
Sending a message to all we are one, together.
Our love we pledge between us everlastingly.
Through turmoil, adversity our love will grow.
Along with all our happiness, that God will show.

Our Twenty-Nine

Our Twenty-Nine
©2012 C. Brent Cloyd

You have been my darling for twenty-nine
Traveling state to state, place to place
My partner, my lover, my valentine.

We’ve had and held on in good times or bad
We’re not rich, nor poor, but our house is full
You have been my darling for twenty-nine.

You brought forth three children into our home
Two have moved away, one remains with us
My partner, my lover, my valentine.

Daring to believe we pursued the wind
We chased dreams, some saw light and some faded 
You have been my darling for twenty-nine.

Faith, hope, love, and adventure paved our path
The call to service has been our highway
My partner, my lover, my valentine.

We have known joy and we have known sorrow
But our journey has brought satisfaction
You have been my darling for twenty-nine
My partner, my lover, my valentine.

Walk on the Beach

As we walked on the beach this night 
Saw many beautiful things at sight 

Among the breeze that’s blowing light 
so many neon lights, burning bright 

I held his hand in mine 
And saw the nature to be so divine 

The sand was cold, the water was warm 
I was waiting for him to take me in his arms 

He stretched his hands to hug me in tight 
But i was within soo much uptight 

I gradually felt safe being in his hands 
And then gently lay down on the sands 

He ardently kissed me and hugged in tight 
And asked if he could make love all night 

I was so shy to say a yes 
But let him unveil me without a fuss 

He ran his lips from head to toe 
And licked my ear and flicked his tongue to & fro 

I got turned on with this very act 
And started to moan as a react 

With the sky, stars and the moon being the witness 
And the waves dripping us in wetness 

We rejoiced the union in the celestial place 
And enjoyed our first anniversary in such a grace

Thanks For My Wonderful Wife

I remember the first time I
 and my wife first met.
The beauty in her...  I'll never forget!

I won't forget the day 
and the place.
I'll never forget the look
 on her face.

The feeling I had was
 hard to describe.
I knew she was going to be my bride!

I'm thankful to Jesus for 
bringing us together.
Binding us as one... 
Both now and forever!

Twenty years have passed...
 since our wedding day.
She's still my beautiful wife!  
I'm proud to say!

Thanks be to God,
 for making us one.
I pray for his blessings upon
 our daughters and sons.

May God be the unifying 
love in all that we do.
May we never forget the meaning of...
 "I love YOU!"

Each day I look at her... 
what do I see?
This wonderful wife God
 has brought to me!

I'm thankful and honored
 to have her as my wife.
She's been such a blessing...  
A great part of my life!

Your 50th Anniversary: a tribute to Ed and Gwen Towns

It's called the golden anniversary 
when it has lasted for 50 years
when a couple manages to stay together 
through all the blood, the sweat and the tears

you've had your share of make-ups and shake-ups 
yet your love and respect for each other remained steadfast
and despite your obvious commitment to each other
there were some who did not think it would last
but Ed and Gwen you proved them all wrong
as your marriage only got better and strong

your love for each other has endured the test of time
for Jesus is your foundation and the root of your vine
together you entered into the political ring
and dealing with Congress is not an easy thing
together you raised and reared a child or two
and in spite of the teenage years somehow you made it through
to Mr & Mrs. Edolphus Towns, man and woman, husband and wife
your 50 year union is a testimony on how to have a good married life

to Ed and Gwen from your Berean Baptist Church family
we love you, we honor you and we salute you on your 50th Anniversary

Lullaby sweet one

“Love me like nothing is holding you back”
She calls from the kitchen sweetly
he sets down his project
and wraps his strong arms
around the one he loves, from behind her
brown curls fall to her lower back
marking his favorite spot to kiss her
smelling of coconut and ocean winds

The Heart of Poverty

Once upon a time, mother was gifted new life.
Reformed, reborn the second child to poverty, 
through the coldness of a Maine winter came beauty.
A fair Eve to her brothers Adam construction
her bloom was destined for a fresh spring being
and her eventual undoing awaits at death.

And, so she was born from the stark darkness of death
and raised on the undone leavings of old life.
Grandma brought bright sunlight with all of her being.
Granddad culled the forest deer to dress their poverty.
A thin walled lake cabin, a homes base construction
housed a family full of fine children’s beauty.

Field and forest with flower and tree were her beauty.
The doe, the buck, the rabbit bought life from their death.
The harshness of this life brought forth angry constructions,
razor strap beatings on small white behinds laced their lives.
Fishing, gardening canning and sewing relieved poverty
In time love came for her dancing into being

The Big One WWII brought my Dad to being
Auburn hair and chocolate eyed was Mom’s beauty
Her handmade clothes sewn with the art poverty
The war had brought them all too close to death
Lovers grasp at the gift they’re given, gifted life
and a new family of country and city was constructed.

Fifty years more , she was given, in this soul construction
tearful years of longing for a different being
with little joy at home, the family of this life
denying the world outside the walls the beauty
not even accepting the end of pain her death
Her gift to me, knowledge, I live not in poverty.

Mom died on a cold wet January day in poverty.
Her poverty was of money and not of love’s construction
at her tidy bed sitting with her hand in mine she died.
“Oh, I wish it were so, and then not, with all my being”
Not all of her treasures gone, for her children’s beauty
remains, their love had not left her throughout her life.

Though in reality Mom lived a short time in poverty being
but the construction of even that poorest plight was always beautiful.
And what is death really once through the pain but rich new life.

Love you always

Now that the rain is gone,

I can see clearly again.

I can make comparisons

 between the stars and your eyes.

Because they shine alike,

And both carry unsung beauty.

Like an artist takes time to perfect their work,

 so was the creator when it was ya turn with his hands.

you must have been born on a sunday,

when God was taking a rest from earthly events

and he took all the time with you. 

You are God sent,

 I was lucky to have you,

That is why i will never loose you,

As precious as diamonds are to many,

 you are to me.

you are a part of me now,

Ma wish is you hold me as special as I do to my life. 

When a day passes by without seeing me,

Do not cry for me,

because oceans alike,

your cheeks will be,

I won't be anywhere to wipe away the tears,


but will not forsake you,

every time I turn ma back and walk away from you,

It is not meant to be forever,

 I will be back to be with you,

Whatever circumstances may stand in our way,

 we shall overcome,

 For in tandem we will rise

and in tandem we will be stalled as the road narrows,

True love is what guides what we have,

Forever we shall hold on to each other

 as each day brings joy to our lives,

 enriched with love and devotion,

because love and devotion are as earth and sky are,


neither exists without the other.

may you be blessed with the infinite joy from such a love,

let happiness bring light to our lifes,

so we can pull thru and stay together forever,

and lets bring comfort to each other,

i will hold you in my arms evry chance i get,

and even if the missisippi flows down your cheeks

from your eyes, i will keep them  dry....

when nights become cold

i will hold you in my arms and keep you warm.

for the long nights i will hold you gently

and let you enjoy the beutiful sleep

i will watch over the sleepning beauty

 and wonder how God came to create such as you,

and during the day i will keep you company

 and put a smile on the cute face of yours

I will kiss your lips that are so soft and sweet,

then move on to your cheek that are so smooth and unique.

and wait for giggle for i know it will come,

i love you.

this isn't a game but true love is the name.

It's an everlasting love we endure

a love so clean and so pure.

A love so deep yet unseen.

forever truely yours..............

Anniversary Roses

A floral fragrance, sweet perfume
It lingers here within this room
As flowers in spring, surely bloom
Still, none compare to you

It finds me then it weakens knees

I wish dad had been more affectionate
like other fathers who made their sons proud,
guided them through life's long phases 
with the same strength and certitude they had;
I looked at him and saw austerity on his face,
not expressing love for a timid child with a voice without wit.

And the unspoken word created a distance between father and son,
pulling me further and further from him until I felt numb and vain...
I couldn't say to him what my dream was, or what I tried to achieve;  
and rambling from place to place, I became that rolling stone  
kicked by all on a busy road and lying in mud after a hard rain...
I wept in silent rage, he heard it often, but let me grieve! 

Was it his selfish ego...not to let love show without shedding a single tear?
Should love have restrictions...not being equally shared by boys and girls? 
And on every anniversary, that vision of stern father and sad boy returns...
I loved dad and he knew why I hated the way he kept his affection from me,
and instead of getting a hug today, I write an elegy for his tomb under a pine tree;
o father, I wanted to embrace you and honor you by breaking that barrier of fear!

Lost Valentine

“She was mine” was all he thought
His spark was gone, forever had seemed so long
The gleam in his eye, dulled as days went by
He’d been trying hard to carry on, she was two months gone
He could no longer cry, all life was now, was a lie
His sadness growing deeper, as the world continued to fly by
His girl was gone now, his reason and purpose no longer around
For years he cared, he couldn’t show, but those actions spoke louder than any words 
she would’ve known
His poor tired soul began to appear on his face
His heart numb from losing the one love that who with, his life had begun
Now it was his time to start, for in his heart, he knew……
They wouldn’t be far apart.

                                                    Dedicated to the memory of my Grandparents

More Then Just Lines

I think I've seen you in my dreams, you're matching every description.
Your love is like a drug, I'd kill to fill the prescription.
You give me so much excitement, like when babies are born.
You're the only flower I see that's in this garden of thorns.
You must be Jamaican, because you're Jamaican me crazy.
Let's get a place together and maybe raise up a baby.
A lot of people call me Trav, but you can call me tonight.
You have the most beautiful eyes in the world, just like the stars they shine bright.
If I told you that you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?
You could make a shy guy try and make a blind man see.
If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.
You've got me floating like a feather, and I want to feel this way forever.
You may think these are just lines, or maybe all the above,
but please read this with your heart, because you're the woman I love.

You my dear have stood by me,

all of these years through better

Beginning to look like you will

but here you are, still

and wishing you another

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.

Your Wedding

This is your day in the sun, Your day of triumph, Of commitment, Of promise and intention, Of New Beginnings, The end of loneliness. This is the new foundation, The plying together of bricks and mortar The bricks to give colour and shape, The mortar to give structure and soundness, So that together you are an impregnable fortress With doors of heartfelt love, Windows of vision, Rooms of peace and generousity, Furnishings of service and beauty, And a garden of sweet memories to grow. I wish you success at every turn, Joy on every path, Delight in all the little things of life, Deeply rooted and vigorously sprouting shoots of loyalty and love Nurtured on the fertiliser of experience and wisdom, And LONG LIFE TOGETHER!

Pink Pansies with Petals so Soft,
Lily of the Valleys that Smell so Sweet,
This Time and Day you Must Share,
Dinner on the Town will Be a Nice Treat.

Some Flowers like to Climb,
While many Others Seem to Crawl,
A Smile - Tight Hug with a Gentle Kiss,
Realizing your Efforts were Worth it ALL !

OH The flutter of my heart
When you asked me to marry
With your smile and manner
and with such poise and grace

Our shared days of laughter
and our late nights of whispers
Of our life in the future

Making dreams a reality

Our souls are like diamonds

For nine months
With love and pain
With joy and suffering
In her womb she carried me
A mother she is 
And a woman of virtue.

When there was no one, she was the only one
Even left alone, she never leaves me alone
Indeed, she’s a mother 
And a woman of virtue.

When toddling, she cared
And still directs when I could run
She is a mother of the child and the adult
In her thoughts are all, even the descendants to come
Many names will I call her; “A mother of all”
And a Woman of Virtue.

Happy anniversary

The years seems to pass by like days 
Since the first time I bless my eyes on you 
And when you look at me and smile 
In my heart I knew my dreams had come true 

And the first time your hands touch mines 
Your touch make my heart began to race 
And from that moment happiness comes over me 
And after all theses years still shows on my face 

You have become more beautiful every day 
And I am blessed to have you as my wife 
And it brings tears of joy when I say 
Happy anniversary thank you for sharing my life 

I love you as much now as I did before 
And every day it keeps growing more 
And you will be this great mysterious beauty 
That my love will always choose to explore 

Your beauty is like the night and its moon 
And the light of the sun in the afternoon 
And you are the life that breathes life in me 
And with out you my life would be living in misery 

I know some times the rain will fall 
Every love must face some stormy weather 
And I know some times the rain will fall 
But knowing that you are here by my side 
Is the courage and strength to concur it all 

Every day being with you is a miracle 
A miracle that god has bestowed on me 
And I wish every year for the rest of my life 
To say “sweet heart I love you happy anniversary 

You carry my heart and soul in your hands 
And I see my life reflection in your eyes 
And I will love you now and forever 
More than all the billions of stars in the sky 

I look at you and I fall in love all over again 
And I do every time I see your beautiful face 
You are an angel from above in heaven 
You are the sun the moon an amazing grace 

I will never knew what it is you saw in me 
But I thank god the day you and I became “we

Much prettier than the f word
I descend from the position
that I know is better
A thought 
to cascade to a point 
in the name of (the l word)...
in order to romanticise a decision
Surely I can be at grace and (the l word)
from afar
The Lord does it...or does He?
Do I have to give myself away
in order to feel the proximity of a moment...
recall it it tortures my
To be sucked into a reality
so familiar
only to be moving to impurity
Let me subside
and land into my comfort zone..
wherever that is!

Love it

I love it when you're kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs
Passion slowly increasing
breathing deeper
Gaining momentum for the moment 
that draws nearer
Now you're whisperin in my ear
Temperature's rising
moaning, grinding
my body to the rhythm of each 
Enjoying kisses with your tongue on 
my neck
While creating secrets between us 
that manifest
into beautiful stories of lust and 
Unafraid to confess 
Rivers flow
The scent of the pheremones 
The beat that the song's on
Tuned in to your passion 
I’m feeling it’s time to make this happen
Finally releasing fear and stress
through pure emotion and love 
Freedom from hurt and distress
I love it when you’re kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs...

Love Is In The Air Tonight

Baby lets take that drive today.
Its the right time to get away.
Lets go to that same old spot
that we both know so well.

Its there. The sun
is always warm and nice.
And the river runs so cool,
always flowing thru our minds.

Love is in the air tonight.
This time, this time that we share.
Being here, being here without a care.
Love is in the air tonight.

When we're here we feel free.
So plentiful, just you and me.
We know its here for sure.
We'll make love all thru the night.

Love is in the air tonight.
Holding hands below the stars.
Below the stars, we begin to dance.
And we'll dance all thru the night.

Love is in the air tonight.
We'll sleep all day,
just to wake all night.
To wake and love and dance.

Under stars again,
love in the air to share.
Another night again,
always hand and hand.

Love is in the air tonight.

It's sad to reminisce the memory of those
who have long left our world without a chance for goodbyes....
I was left behind for an unexplainable reason
to fulfill a task with a true purpose;
and still walking and breathing I go on,
gathering tiny fragments of stories never told by writers.

Sometimes I tell myself," Why was I continuously spared?"
" Why do I have to be the last one to leave?" 
Those answers will be given to me when I'll grieve,
and close to death : I will hear them through the voice of the Lord. 
And instead of receiving comfort, I will generously give it...
even to the enemy who once despised my honesty; 
and coexisting with everyone, I will uphold my ethical code and go forth,
not cogitating the mystery of my unblemished identity.

Many before me have achieved this by resisting change,
not adapting to the new moralities dictated by society,
but the result was too tragic and gruesome for all to accept reality;
and as lepers with open wounds, they still indulged in pleasure,
hiding their disease with canning lies and eloquent flair....
I would cut off my own hands, rather than share the unclean thing!  

And still walking and breathing, my arduous mission must be complete:
neither ridicule nor contemptible looks will make me put my rod away!
I'll stick to my convictions and move on to delight in another blessed day,
and as bewildered as they may be, I refuse to be compassionate...
they must understand the purpose of my birth,
identify those works and deeds that give me worth,
then the outcome wouldn't be short of a miracle;
and ebullient as they appear, I suspect they will tremble!

Nerves Gone Wild

Nerves in a jar, my life is a mess
I hurt form this world as my poem suggests
Cut from a rose that smells no more
Healing like a dove thats flown shore to shore
What became of our love thats anybodys guess
We forgot about thinking, now about what comes next

Some of the times I will remember more I will forget
It hurts today tommorrow I will give it my best
My head becomes heavy my mind becomes my nest
What to do with all of the love I have here hidden in my vest
Come to my sences my heart in my hand
I think about all of the things that I can
My now today I understand
I can will you the love to better comprehend
From here I wish you the world
The universe a best
Untill you are willing 
The person beside me is only a guest

Shush be calm, it’s okay I’m right here,
You’re hugging my pillow and shedding a tear

You have my memory and I feel your heart,
Always forever till death do us part.

We’ll always have Paris and the empire state building
Watching the Bulls and the yankees out fielding 

But there’s nothing like kissing and the shared living touch,
and the holding of hands that we loved so much.

The smell of your perfume at the end of a day
Knowing that just before work we had shower play

Making love in the moon light the sun and the rain
The memories of beach the car and the plane

Running naked through sand dunes and chasing the sun
Naked moon bathing naming stars just for fun

It was always and only about just you and me,
And it always and shall be for eternity.

 Please don’t go just yet I have something to say
Then you can let my balloon float away

I thought I knew love and knew what to do
But it all went so wrong when I met you

My wires got crossed an my thinking went wonky
My smarts all went south on a pantomime donkey

But now that I’m gone I don’t want you to worry
I don’t want you to rush to get here in a hurry

It’s all down to you now to play and explore
Before you join my photo in our sons bottom draw

Thank you for sharing your life and your love
I’ll be watching you always from the blue skies above

From the wind in your hair to the moon in your eyes
 From the warmth of the sun and the sea and the skies

Feel loved and not spied on, I want your sprit to fly
I can’t live with the thought of making you cry.

Beauty in its purest form stands for me
Clothes drop for only my blue eyes to see,
Which Angel or God created this woman? 
Or did Satan make you to tempt us men?
Either way I'm lost in your perfection,
I don't know where to start your inspection!
Crafted so well I just want all of you!
The things you are making me want to do! 
Oh love I'm amazed by this sexy view
Now I must admit a secret so true!
You're my living temptation, thus it's rude,
for you love, to be anything but nude!

The Luck in Love I See in You

Today is the day when we tied the knot
The luck in love was when I met you
That glimmers during day and night
And will not vanish like a celestial view

God has breathed two souls been searching
And so our prayers met and conceived
Passion to be with you and an undying love
As we find the rhythm of a new life beginning

Each year is glory, as we recall our vows
Nothing aureate but being together is enough
Trust is the foundation and it is all that shows
 Quality time with family is what we cared of

Something lives within your gentle eyes
That can suits me in a dark, cool and damp place
It is the loving light that radiates and supply
The stream of life as way to embrace

No love has ended without due romance
For it is something to share and far from lies
For in another life, I will still take the chance
The luck in love, I see in your eyes

Happy Ten months to my Katie Bear

A silly poem for my Katie Bear:

Wow, can you believe we've reached month TEN
Would someone be so kind as to hand me a PEN?

For i think it's time to send you a poem filled with LOVE
There's no doubt in my mind your a gift from ABOVE.

I love this girl with all my HEART
That's why it kills me to be APART

So far we've come, just look how much we CARE
Even though i no longer have blue HAIR.

For something has grown, something much DEEPER
as my grandpa says "This one's a KEEPER"

The people at work say "is she the one?"
I just smile and say if she laughs at my pun!

Now i know this is SILLY
and you'll sit and say "REALLY?"

But yes, really, my feelings are TRUE
the only girl i want is YOU

cheers to us, and to many years more
to a love that lasts through rich and poor

To growing old, and in each others arms falling asleep
I'd smile at your slumbering frame as you make not a peep

So one last time, happy anniversary
I promise i'll go buy all of the groceries

My Daily Anniversary

~My Daily Anniversary~ Your arms surround me warm and safe Your kisses delight my senses I cannot think of life without you You have broken down all my defences My skin shivers with your kisses My heart beats so hard I’m sure a beat misses The tingling sensations you give me with your lips Travel through my body to my finger tips The way your body caresses mine I sometimes feel lost in time The shivering trembling of pure delight Makes me long for you all through the night The tremors and joy we share together Praying silently they’ll last forever With each kiss and touch we share For the rest of mankind it cannot be fair For all this love we have is not cursory Making you my one and only, my daily anniversary.

My Friend Is My Love...

I couldn’t read, I couldn’t write…
That my world would no more ever be bright.
With the morning sun I would rise,
The day ahead full with surprise.
He took me here, he took me there,
We planned the day for everywhere.
We sat together all alone,
Speaking of things, which were atone.

Our minds would argue, but hearts unite,
We kept opposing, although right.
He bought me chocolates I never shared,
I would joke on him, but he never cared.
He brought me flowers from the bushes around,
A red one hidden as yellows surround.
I always pretended I would never see
But in my heart I would just let it be.

Back in my room when it was 7 again,
I would sit quiet, and feel the pain.
As I realized that another day would end,
He would stay a day longer I would pretend.
With sleepless nights my eyes would swell,
Moistened with bitter tears and love’s spell.
The morning would come and go again,
But the realization would still remain.

And one sudden  day it was the day,
He kept staring at me and couldn’t say.
I made him promise he would never let know,
When it was time for him to leave and go.
But the look in his eyes I knew there was no next day,
I couldn’t make him stop, not in any way.
I ran away, far away from where he was,
Picturing him looking at me, as that was the last.

Eleven Years Strong

Many people dream of having what you share...

Love within
Each other!
Verisimilar love &
Enthusiastic promises of "Death Do Us Part"
Never-ending passion

Yearning of
Amatory of
Satisfaction of compromised love!

But only few stick together throughout the journey....

And He Walked To His Love

A little everything is all that matters,
When I see you wave at your mates.
And you seem pleased with the slightest flatters,
They deliver a flying kiss, Oh! you dates.

I wear fancy clothes and apply shiny lip gloss.
For you to see me once, for real and not when in trance.
I wear the latest hair colors, stealing my mom's dollars,
I polish my nails clean, with all the brands from the magazine.

At nights when I sit to study I keep wondering...
How the next day I could look more appealing.
But days passed by and all I get from you is...
A couple of funny stares in the last 250 days.

No more of faking around, and now my normal self abound.
I no more look at you, or notice the things you do.
Three months pass by, with my grades I am already pre-occupied.

And then one day a strange voice calls my name,
Sounds familiar, but I wonder where I heard the same.
I turn around with the pencil in my mouth,
My head spins and gets filled with doubt.

The sweetest "Hi!" you deliver me;
And I realize, that all this time you had been a seeker of simplicity...

there you were 
brought you back to me 
like yesterday 

we'd share a spoon
seldom thoughts 
of tomorrow loom
I was there 
when you failed to sleep
I held you 
Right next to me 

After all
we adored your fall
summer fields
and winter chills 

hope is leaving 
quick and fast
I'm all you need
to make it last 

i allude to you
when i'm not 

There you were
like yesterday
my addiction

brought you 
back to me
sweet misery

hope is leaving 
quick and fast
I'm all you need
to make it last

The Play's the Thing

They went to the theatre to see a play and the lights began to dim.
In the dark he reached out his hand to her and she gave her hand to him.

They sat and watched the plot unfold as the story was revealed,
They whispered into to each other’s ears their secret stayed concealed.

She held on tightly to his arm while the villain’s plan became displayed,
But then she released his arm when all was safe leaving him dismayed.

Then in the dark she turns her head and steals a glance at him
She thinks that if the villain came for her, he’d tear him limb from limb.

He turns and in the glow can see the beauty that belongs to her
And even though he’s much too old, a hero begins to stir.

There will be theatre this night and not just on the stage
For as long as there remains soft light they need not act their age.

They are in a play called life and are acting as lovers do,
The stage is set for romance when one shall be made of two.

FREE CEE live to evolve

                           LIVE TO EVOLVE
Have you ever noticed that the  letters in the word love are sequestered inside the word “evolve?
Because to me that is what love appropriately does
It evolves
It revolves
It solves
And after sixty-plus years together love does, 
in many ways, 
change its ways of wonderment
and is often altered on a course to sheer contentment
for that is the result of the continuation of a consecrated commitment
an abiding faith that the others faith rests upon the others shoulder
as they grow ever so much older
remembering a time of working hard together to get through the hard times together
that old fishing boat she hated so that became battered and eventually succumbed to the weather
while all the while smiling because each year seemed a bit brighter than the last
and all the joyful events that are now part of a bejeweled and fulfilling past
a past reflected in each partner's eyes which gaze upon a tribute to dedication
a coupling worthy of adulation
he being content to make her content proves the content of their cohabitation
a union rich with rewards that come in the mail bearing pictures of their first great grandson born
a baby with beauty by an angel at birth besworn
so there they sit sharing a couch and swapping a calliope of memories
he talks of fishing and she of a cool Autumn breeze
as each agrees
sixty-plus years weaves two souls together as tightly as any weaver ever wove a sweater
and for some fated reason the last decade seems somehow, in retrospect, better
well not so much better as just plain more comfortable
no surprises, no red flags, and no warnings to heed
just a mutual and spiritual type of need
the need to talk away a partners tears
while knowing that his partner truly hears
and dries her eyes compliantly
to face yet another hardship defiantly
ever eager with a gentle finger to wipe away the wet that it might no longer linger
because these are two who vowed with strength that forever, to them, actually meant forever
traversing together mile after mil
through the trials.. through the riches and through each smile
but most notably through all the determination together to damn away their fears
it seems to me that love evolves ever so softly after sixty-plus years

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary
This is how love should be
Put out for all the World to see
We all see you’re as happy as can be

Life is full of changes
But together you have the strength
To combat any dangers
And get through tough times at any length

This strength you have shines bright as a star
And fills us all with hope
We know your love will go far
No matter the trouble….you’ll cope

You are our symbol of true love
And a wonderful example to follow
Your union blessed by God above
Continually basking in his glow

We wish you love and luck
Forever and tomorrow
That you will be eternally stuck
Together completely love struck.

Anniversary Time

Though life may throw us ups and downs
I would not trade you for bejewelled crowns
Nor leave you for a pot of gold
Yet stay with you till we are old

Together ten years and married nine
I know things won’t always be fine
There will be times that are hard to face
Made easier by your warm embrace

So once again at anniversary time
I try to say it in a rhyme
I love you and I always will
Till breath is gone and I am still

May still my love enfold you tight
In quiet moments in the night
Let it be round you every where
Even though I’m gone still know I care

To Part is to Die

To part is to die;
Means forever that I
Will give my heart, body and mind,
Whenever to fight
For the rest of my life...

I will always try
To give you the sun, moon, and stars,
And everything under the sky.
I will forever strive
To quench you when you're dry,
If you're low, build you high.
Help you spread wings and fly...

To catch every tear you cry.
To never be the reason they fall from your eye.
Look into mine,
I promise no lie,
Together our dreams are infinite,
Let's bring them alive.
The world is divine,
So let's take our time,
And enjoy each treasure that crosses our line.
Thought the path may curve, each mountain we'll climb.
We'll never swerve and never divide.
Place your heart in my hand and I'll give you mine.
We'll put together our knots and let love make tie.
Swear on my entity, to never abandon your side.
No more, no less;
To part is to die.

the old you

How can love come and go so fast?
I really miss the way we were.
I still love you even though I hate you
I hate that you made me cry
And how it is so hard everytime to say goodbye
I didn't like that last hug
I can feel little heart strings given a tug
I want the old you to hold me 
I want the old you to come back
I want my whole life to be back on track
The ringing is about to stop
No more "I love you, I really do"
No more staying on skype till two
The old you is gone and for awhile even you're not coming back
I wish I woudn't have got mad for somethings so dumb
So that now my heart wouldn't be so numb
If we could have made game plans and talked things through 
Right now I wouldn't be missing you 
The old you would still be here
And I wouldn't have these painful tears

Loving Communications

Talk to each other
Everything completely
Trading off who wins

The childish silliness
The sweet clumsiness
The burning storm
On your head
My everyday trial of patience.

You piss me off
All the time

All the time
You make me smile

I want to kill you
With squeezing hug

Whenever you cry
My soul tears apart.

One smile of yours -
The sun shines again
Even if it rains outside.

Sight of you
Weakens me

I lose my cruelty
My hunger for revenge:

My violent arms soften
My veins loose;

You need me
as much as
Vital you are
to my wild heart
not to burst hatred.

You teach me 
patience and tenderness,

Sometimes I hate you
I love you always
Though not in love am I.

I shall be yours
till the end of time
To make you happy
- a new goal in life:

Whatever your wish from me
Will happen
Always and ever

Forever to you
I am devoted

My dear friend,
No easier words
would paraphrase
the essential emphasis
of what I feel
'I love thee' -
Every single day.

Oh Your Smile

Oh your smile brightly gleams
In my sweet summer dreams
In the sun-reflected streams
Then your smile beams
brightly again

Ones again the summer goes 
Its a bummer that the drummer 
Cried on the plummers fries 

Oh your smile is pretty
Its most pretty 
In the city

Oveal and Sugenia

Just when she thought love could never be
He looked at her, what did he see.
A Shattered heart, from yesterday
He took her hand and led the way
An Unfamiliar circumstance,
The sight of him, moved her to dance
She Smile and laugh and blush inside
His love was real, he could not hide
He drew to her, she cling to him
This was a vision no one else could see
Through Trials, Triumphs, Mountain Peaks
Their strength anchored in God, Nothing could make them weak
 Every day, their love grows strong
In every way, never alone
So bless them God and keep them near
As they stand in awe, of this treasured time
This day ten years, two now are one
They Stood before God the Father and Son
God’s your light in Darkness, Be each other’s all
Sickness and sorrow, laughter and joy
Today, tomorrow in years to come
We thank you God for answered prayer
And all of you who’ve come to share
I prayed for them and I pray you see
Oveal and Genia, were meant to be.

The One

Simply put she takes my breath
From the stars at night
Up in the sky as I look into her eyes

Pulling me in time and time again
I've finely found my feather

Remember the Day

Remember the day when conversation strikes
Between the two of us for the very first time
Back then, I had no inkling of your likes
The way you know not of my love for lime

Remember the day when you first called me
I picked up the phone at the very first ring
We chatted freely from the trees to the sea
And together this ballad we start to sing

Remember the day when I'm asked to be your girl
I was blushing and grinning from ear to ear
Till now, you are still as precious as the pearl
Just like the first day we dated last year

Remember this special day of the many few
When I tell you just how much I Love You!

Just Because I Said I Do

You bruise me—
accuse me—

but I'd only love you more
because it'd remind me
how much I despise it 
when people act perfectly.

My Reply to Your Suicide Note

You're my favorite character
In a book that ended abruptly,
Remember our wild laughter
It's a lollapalooza interrupted.

I looked for the next book in your series,
But I discovered there was no more,
I cannot find any peace or rest,
Without some kind of closure.

It's just cruel and unfair,
You thought no one would care,
God created you perfectly,
That's all I could see
because I always loved you.

Everything I've Wished For

You could give me flowers, gifts, a brand new car
You could take me to movies, dinner, even a dance
But no matter what you could offer me
You’ll never give me anything greater
Than what you have already given me
You’ve given me a chance to see
What it means to truly in love
You’ve shown me more than I could ever imagine
You’ve given me everything I’ve wished for
On that special day when you told me, “I love you”

Birthday Wish - A

There lie cake and candles
And I'm not knowing what to do
I clap along to their singing
Hoping they finish their quadrilingual song
And we get through
I lean over the cake pulling my hair away
Reminiscing quickly over the past year, past day
I hear someone tell me to make a wish, asking me if I will
So I think of everything I wanted, things I claimed that to have them I would even kill
But it all seemed so petty for a birthday wish, too superficial
I wanted this wish to mean something, something crucial
I glance up quickly and scan the crowd
Listening to their tone deaf singing, so proud
Think of what helped me survive, made everything okay
And I know what to wish for
But I steal a glance at the door
She isn’t there, though I hoped she was
Guiding, watching me grow, like she always does
I know what to wish for, and lean forward at last
Structuring my wish fast
I wished for them
I wished for her who was there for me day or night
To talk to, play with, even fight
I wished for him who spoke his heart so true
But hid it so well I never had a clue
I wished for him who was too small
But his personality built him up so tall
I wished for her who never did overreact
She's crazy and placid, that’s a contradicting fact
I wished for him who's bribed to walk
And makes me laugh with our random talk
I wished for him, his smile so wide
Remembering that when he left, I cried
Wished for her who always nags
Always there for a vent, a gush, and loving me always, in riches or rags
I wished for him, the one I held a hidden love for
The one that always gave then gave some more
I wished for her, the total crazy
The one so different, yet the same as me
I wished for the two to trust
The true male version of us
I wished for the one I feel the need to shelter
The one that has helped me just as I've helped her
I wished for the perfect couple standing by
Who will probably be in love till they die
I wished for the guy who shares my dad's name
For his smile, conversation, and jokes that are just plain lame
I wished for the brother missing
Despite all the years of fighting, hitting, and dissing
I wished for each and every one of them, for them all
The kids crowding around me, filling the room wall to wall
I wished to have them by my side till the end of time
There to catch me at every fall and help me with every climb
The ones there with me through this journey
The ones I love, and who love me
I want them there with me through every endeavor
So I wished to have them forever and ever

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.

Hebrews 13:4a - "Marriage is honourable in all,..."

Come all; love all
Come love; love all
It's Valentine's time and we all know the time
The time is now and now has always been the time.

This is world celebration
The celebration has always been for the world
It's public and same time private
It's for you as it's for me.

Many misunderstand what this feast of love is
Many claim to understand it better than others
Many don't care about understanding it; just want to celebrate it
It's time for love; let the time be all about love.

It's Valentine
Celebrate it how you want to celebrate it, with whomever you choose
Give all and hold nothing back; take all and leave nothing behind
It's Valentine; make it your loving time.

Happy Mother's Not

Thank you mother,
you birthed me,

But this is not your day.

Robbed it of all meaning, 
all substance and heart.
Robbed it of it's very soul.

This holiday is an abomination.  It doesn't celebrate motherhood, it degrades it. Women don't need

Missing You

It’s been 15 years of silence, But your love still reigns true. Not a single day has gone by, That we never think of you. We miss you on the birthdays, Even more at Christmas time. Though you left us in a hurry, Your departure was divine. When you left us that morning, A piece of me left with you. But I’ll regain my happiness, When I’m next to you. Though the memories are fading, One thing will never fade. And that’s the love you gave to us, In the little things you made. We love you and we miss you, For our grief’s not told in tears. We’ve kept all the things you gave, As precious souvenirs. And in the years to follow, I know one thing is true. That wherever I choose to go, I’ll be missing you.

                        My heart no longer belongs to me 
                        is resides within your heart.
                        Dreaming of you make my night
                        worth while thinking of you make me smile.
                        Having you is forever because you always make
                        me happier than ever.

                        I want you to know that every time I take a breath
                        and every time my heart beats fast I will think of you because
                        I know where make it lasts.

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.

Let's Fly

I look longingly above
At the big blue sky.
Do you think it’s possible
For me to fly?

I flap my wings
To no avail;
Everything I try
Seems to fail.

Why can’t I move,
Somehow break free?
Something’s holding me down,
Stronger than gravity.

I look around me,
And there I see
Another soul longing
To be free.

I take his hand,
Try to take flight.
But we don’t move,
Something’s not right.

Our first thought is
To turn away,
But Someone beckons,
We begin to pray.

Something happens 
Right then and there;
Suddenly we feel
As light as air.

He changes our hearts,
Makes us new.
One look at Him
And off we flew.

No tether holds us down;
No limits, none.
We fly together 
For, in Him, we are one.

So come fly with me
To heights unknown.
I’m lost without you,
I can’t soar alone.

Heart Felt Blessing

With my entire heart and the very breath of my soul
I send you my Love to touch and to hold

On the wings of a dove so perfectly pure
May all of your wishes be eternally assured

May the joy you bring, as we are held in God’s hands
Over flow back to you as it continues to expand

May your life be everything you wish it to be
As we move upon its open sea

Happy Birthday… My Love… To You… From Me.
May our glorious life continue to be full of such revelry

Written for my Hubby’s birthday and our Anniversary.

A Lifetime Together

How quickly the time has passed
since the day you became my wife.
After all this time it feels as though
we’ve been together all of my life.
They have been mostly good years
the difficulties have been few.
And the best thing I have ever done
is to fall in love with you. 

Now we have reached a special time
a celebration of a lifetime together.
We just want our life and love
 to go on and just last forever.
You know how much I love you
and what you mean to me.   
So I just want to wish you now   
a happy anniversary.

Transition (for A. I. Smalling on her 18th birthday).

While your mother slept I held you
Thanking God for her, and for you
And thanking God again and again 
For everything make joy from pain.
My darling dearest daughter dream
If you could walk my linger stream
Awhile, and understand my ripple now
An old man under thoughts' full bough.
Seeds become flowers and flowers bring
Fruits again after the fair of fiddled spring
Dark clouds bring silver showers of rain
And swallows drunk with joy weave insane
Pictures on the eye. I watched you grow
Out of the mud of my nurturing, and I glow
In the shade with butterflies brimming me
With a rainbow of memories, O little tree!

You are transformed into a prayer today
A beautiful thing, God's purpose on display
And I love you more than you can tell
The best pat of us must defy all our hell
And cross that bridge on which you stand
Right now, a young woman with some sand
Still in the eyes of desire, but fruit laden
And longing to know the mysteries of heaven.

You are my chrysalis, and hope's budding wing
I can no longer hold you, I let go for you to sing
Because I cannot hold again this transition
This marvelous change edging my premonition.
You are the change that makes me beautiful
The love that fruiting in me feels so wonderful
And the butterflies and swallows here today
Celebrate your transition and your birthday.      
So here under the bough of thoughts I bring
My knees to prayer suckling the sweet spring
Returning to the map that gave me direction
Through the years, and nurtured my affection.
O we tumbled words and passion making truth
Bound by self the old man and the bright youth
And swallows weave their patterns here still
And I leave you joyously to God's sweet will

Remember when we met 
That Lover's Day, 
Our hearts connect 
In your heart I vowed to stay 

And then we parted 
My heart was guarded 

Remember when I first told you 
Those sweet words? 
When I heard them 
And tears came down my face? 

Dear lover, 
Lest you know, 
Promises made or not, 
This is not a lie, 
My love for you, 
Will never die. 

As I sit on my bed 
And think about you 
A smile creeps from the corner 
Of my mouth going farther 
Because your thought 
Makes everything better. 

Dear lover 
You should know, 
I give my all 
And I live for you.

Cupid, be my messenger...
take this letter to Emma;
and while your wings ride the wind,
she'll smile down below.

 I watched the paper soak up the ink
as it blotched in breast strokes across the page...
 suddenly I was street bound
in hand signals
legs, pinned to the pavement
as July scrolled by in reverse
and a name scrawled across
the wheat covered hills...

 A single day took it's light 
from the crayon colored buildings
and the laughter rang from
a beautiful city where the call 
of seagulls brushed it's wings
against my cheek like friends
embraced, arm in arm, 
our hopes, crushed
long before infancy.

I plucked a locus from my eye
as petals of golden Roses 
littered the street like pieces
of shattered poetry.

God's Plan for Marriage

There’s a truth that remains since 
the beginning of time.
God created man and woman, 
 with marriage in mind.

From the dust of the ground,
Adam was formed.
From his side came Eve.  A new life was “born!”

God’s design for marriage became 
very evident and clear…
If not for Adam and Eve,
 none of us would be here!

Marriage is a blessing from God.  
A gift from God above.
A man and a woman come together
 as an expression of their love.

Anything different than one man 
and woman is perverted.
This is a lie from our culture that
 is trying to be “inserted.”

God gave us all a natural love 
with a strong ambition.
To come as a husband and wife 
is a God given intention!

Read from the books of Genesis
 thru Revelation…
God’s idea of marriage is
 for any person or nation.

Many can try to change what God
 has already designed.
It’s no wonder why so many have 
“confused” minds.

Let’s come back to God and
 trust him with our life!
The one who set up marriage as; 
“one husband and one wife!”

Adoption Day

Today is so very special
the day you were chosen
the cutest smile
and most vibrant halo
you were brighest of the cherubs
and once again we celebrate 
the day your path was laid
that lead you to my door step
and conquered my heart

 So I say have a very special
Adoption Day
be cheerful and proud
for this day means as much to me as it does to you.

For Women

The modern day women of today are abused and tortured.
Not the physical of scars and wounds,
but the mental of intellectual suffocation.
What man can say: I am the bearer of life.
show me your proof and I’ll show you a liar.
What man can step forward and say: I was not born from a woman.
What man can say: I did not spend 9 months in their mother’s womb.
The truth is plain to see.
The hatred for women is bitterly unjust.
We should not simply acknowledge our women,
but understand, respect and love our women
for they are walking sanctities of wisdom and truth.
How can we celebrate life without saluting our wonderful women?
The nurtures of time; past, present and future
and still we choose to cast authority over them.
This general consensus of ownership must stop.
There is nothing weak in acknowledging a female heart.
As a man it is not a crime to say; I love you mother. 
I love you sister. I love you wife. I love you friend. 
On my behalf, I will respect each and every woman
regardless of if she respects herself.
Yet in time,
I know she will grow to love her own.
Valuing her every curve, acquired intellect, 
display of heart, and ounce of spirit.
As a beautiful and insightful woman,
in time she will grow to love herself,
love her eyes and love her soul
Just as I will accordingly do.

Anniversary of an Unenviable Event Pt II

I woke up this same morning and you were gone without warning
I ignored all of the signs, thinking my behavior was fine
But I missed you as soon as I crawled out of bed
And ever since then, you haven’t left my head
Well back then I was just a punk, staying out late and getting drunk
I wish you could see that I’m changed now, come back to me and you’ll see how
Tonight I need to disappear, cause I sure as hell can’t stay here
Your ghost has got me down, I think I’ll go out on the town

Now I’ve found myself sitting in a bar, wondering where in the world you are
I wonder if you’re as lonesome as me, baby I love you, can’t you see?
Even though I’ve got these eternal blues, I’m so glad that I fell in love with you
You’re the only girl that I’ll ever miss, I’d do anything for another kiss
I’d make all the right amends and let go of all my wrong trends
This same morning you were gone, and my heart can’t seem to move on
Baby I’d do it all again, even if it had the same end
I’d do it all over again, just to be your boyfriend
I’ll see you when the waves leave the sea, don’t forget me

Love Come's Naturally

As I sit here beside you,
I can only think of what else I would do
To make you happy, see that smile I love
Show you why I fell in love with you!

I don’t ever need a holiday to tell you I love you
To show you how much I care
I could buy you flowers and chocolates everyday
I wouldn’t ever need time to prepare
I’d know when you’re sad
Know when you’re having a bad day
Call you even when you’re at work
Just to show you I’m here to stay
Through it all I would appreciate you
Give you compliments even when we fight
Kiss you every morning as you wake up
And before we fall asleep each night
I would cry with you
Share the pain so you never feel alone
Would make you proud
Of the fact that we can share a home
We would take turns cooking
Make memories that you would never forget
Share with you my passion
And get through each day with no regrets
Hold you in my arms
In those tough times
And lay beside you
As you cry…
Kiss you and let you know
That everything will be just fine
Because I love you so much
And always have your best interest in mind

Someday when we get old
It will be side by side
Hand in hand
I would make sure in the end that I did my best
To make it a beautiful ride!

The Rarest of Gifts

Life’s most priceless treasure
two minds each fondly share
remembering to cherish always
each moment with joy sincere

O’er a lifetime most precious
learning love is the key to living
as two hearts together discover
each day is a reason for giving

Love is truly the rarest of gifts
two souls share with each other
each day giving a special part
of themselves away to another

Inspiring selfless dedication
finding true joy of the heart
two spirits faithfully joined
committed from the very start

Timeless is the joyful serenity
of true love’s promise begun
each wholeheartedly trusting
as two lovingly become one

Always there for each other
giving comfort in time of need
not just today but every day
with every thoughtful deed

For My Dearest Love Jacob

     The dark black sky it glimmers,
     Brighter than the Sun.
     I look around this broken world
(I) see your the only one.
     When all the strength escapes earths roots,
     And floats out past the sea.
     And when the ground below me breaks 
     I know you'll carry me.
     All my hope is buried deep,
     Not just beneath the skin.
     But deep within my soul it lays
     Inspiring my pen.
     This Love I feel embraces me
     The black sky wraps me tight.
     Because of your bright shining eyes
     I know I'll sleep tonight

Happy Anniversary Dad and Mum

Have a wonderful Anniversary Dad and Mum
You both hold the spirit of the Cherubim
You give protection and a special love
That can only come from heaven above

So I wish you a Happy Anniversary for tomorrow
Knowing you’ve shared good times and sorrow
But you have conquered many, many years
Mixed with lots of laughter and plenty of tears

You are the glue that holds our family together
Your union destined to last forever
A couple God has chosen to look upon
So your message of love will carry on

You generously empower us with a special gift
Of love and closeness that gives our souls lift
You both have this energy that warms us all
And makes us feel at least 10 feet tall

You always care
You’re always there
We owe you everything
For the life of joy you bring

You’re a couple whose love inspires
The voices of angelic choirs
As they whisper your very own love song
Spreading the message of how to stay strong

So thanks to our Gods creation
You can enjoy another year’s celebration
An Anniversary to many that is rare
That you’ve earned because you’re a wonderful pair.

I Had a Dream

                                      I Had a Dream

                         I had a dream. Oh I had a dream.
                         I sat in a chair in despair thinking
                       of the love and memory of my mother.
     In my dream I built a stairway to heaven with tears to hug her.
              Halfway with out a sound or word in the silent skies
                              an angel appeared upon me.
                        It was a precious and beautiful site.
Oh! I said could you for me ask God to cross a rose and lilac together
to create a bush with large clusters of white, purple, and pink flowers
                             and the fragrance of memory
   And give it long green stems so it can stand free and gracefully.
        Also ask him to it a name, a special name ‘ Kollock ‘
          and let it represent never forgotten love and memories.
                       In my dream God did this for me,
                     and gave it to my mother as a gift from me

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.

Today Is September 1 2007

On this day 16 years ago a beautiful baby girl was born.
As I cried they took her away.
My grandmother watching as if nothing were wrong.
Photos came for a brief moment then stopped
She was gone never to be herd from or seen.
It seemed as if she just vanished.
The agencies said her new family had moved.
No forwarding address to be found.
They apologize for the inconvenience.
Trying to convince me not to give up hope.
Hope what is this, something I find hard to have.
Years have come and gone and not a word.
The last photo I reserved she must have been 3 or 4 years old.
My search it still continues today, 
but not a trace of her or her family do I see.
On this the anniversary of her birth
 I still cry for the loss of my baby girl I bore so long ago.

Flower Plateau

It's pretty late, isn't it?
The day's done, Midnight draws near
You mischievously glance at me
I carry you away to our room

Along the way, I think
Of all the last four years have given me
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Warheads all rusting in peace

Four years ago, I was still so innocent
Fresh eyes, clear mind
Chasing some distant dream
Through a lush, lovely forest

And in a massive clearing, I found the dream
And took her in my arms
She ripped herself away before I could blink
And dragged me down into her suicidal spiral

It took months to escape
To pull us both out
My eyes became jaded
And her innocence was given to another

Latching onto a beam of light
I clung to another
Treating her emotions like a toy
And feeling that I was making her stronger

I became addicted to her quickly
I lived to repent my sins
And repent I did
As I became the toy to her

And in that time, I headed west
Trying to ease the pain of loss
Dragging yet another soul down
And running when it became too much

I've yet to apologize for that
Maybe it goes without saying
But if it doesn't
I send my prayers and sorrow to her skies

And as I walked upon the plateau
Where nothing but weeds grew
I found a single flower
Weakly blooming under the dust

That flower would change my life
And alone I sat on that plateau
Blooming alongside it
Blooming alongside you

And as time passed
The plateau began teeming with flowers
As my life and yours
Became increasingly intertwined

My sorrows melted away
Every loose end that caused me strife
I went back to tie up
And close another chapter of my life

My thoughts come to a halt as I look upon you
Your body under mine, our heartbeats in sync
I take you in my arms and press my lips to yours
Here atop this flower plateau

A marriage made of gold,
That's what you two share.
Something precious to behold,
Uniting together the perfect pair.

Marriage is a sacred vow,
Promising one another eternity.
Not just "throwing in the towel"
At the first sign of any uncertainty.

Couples just don't stay together anymore,
Causing half of all marriages to end.
It seems easier to walk out the door
Than to try and make ammends.

Such hard work and dedication,
Keeping this commitment for life.
There can be no hesitation,
Giving their all, both husband and wife.

This is all a marriage should be
And so much more.
In yours, that's what I see
From the outside to the very core.

It's obvious to all around
That your love still burns strong.
So lucky to have found
Such happiness with whom you belong.

So, as you celebrate this day,
Fifteen years together as one,
I know for a fact that I can say,
"That they'll be more to come"!

Love has a World of Crime too

Wouldn't it be the perfect crime?
If I stole your heart, and you stole mine?
But instead you stole my heart and I never had yours to begin with,
Somehow it took me until now to realize this,
You got to know me and I got to know you,
But you only got to know me and did what you had to do,
You never said anything about you; I did all the talking,
You basically read about me and at the end you started walking,
To start sharing everything like we had the least,
But you still didn’t care you just took the last piece,
I love you and you love me to,
But all you can do is make a man blue,
I hold your hand and you hold mine,
Our love like a betrayal of two harmonious rhymes,
I kept the love and you kept the hate,
But you couldn’t love you can probably only date.
Forever I thought but you’re a soul stealer,
You don’t feel love you’re a hate feeler,
You’re doing all of the most conniving crimes,
You shouldn’t kill love because now you got to do all the time.

happy anniversary

I hope…

You guys are more in love today than yesterday 
That you only grow closer as the hairs gray

That you always hold hands and exchange giddy glances
And when no ones looking, you steal secret dances

It’s like you said, there will never be enough time 
So cherish each and every moment as life’s clocks chime

So reflect and rejoice over your life and loves journey
And from all your children, have a happy anniversary!

A Soldiers Salute

Bombs keep on falling
Bullets keep flying
No matter how brave
Our soldiers are dying

Held in their trenches
Under the rain
With photos of families
Mixed memories and pain

Marching through fields
Thinking of home
And if there'll ever be peace
On our troublesome dome

Beyond the horizon
They hope for the door
To enter their home
And behind leave the war

Wives all indoors
Thinking the worst
Individually hoping
Not to be cursed

Hoping for peace
Through the flight of a dove
Praying to God
The safe return of their love

One minute of silence
Is what they may say
Though it seems not enough
For the price they do pay

Love, Thanks and Respect
Seems the only way
To salute our brave soldiers
On their remembrance day.

Golden Years

Golden Years

I Have Been with You for Fifty Years
And Oh, the Times We've Had!
The Memories  We Made
Were Good and Some Were Bad

But Through it All I've Loved You.
I Think You must Have Known.
I Couldn't Have Made it Without You
And All the Love You've Shown

We've Had Rocky Roads and Heartaches
And  Children along the Way
But We Did it All Together
And Took Everything Day to Day

So as We Celebrate this Day,
And Enjoy Our Golden Years
Forgive Me If You Will
If I Shed a Happy Tear

A Love That Lasts this Long
Is a Testament to Time
It Is What They Call "Forever"
And I'm Glad That You're Still Mine

So as We Begin Year Fifty one
There Is Something I'd like You to Hear
Maybe You Haven't Heard it Enough
I'd like to Say.."I Love You, Dear."

Unions Cross

A twist of fate with slashing blade
In this my heart's deep gash...
Watching her from across the way
Making love, to another girl; passion
Then ripped these dreams apart
Their beauty as hers, melting amid
Scorching flames she cried I wept
While cold the blood, did turn red...
Marble marked but now its gone; tears
Wiped away this love; aside a flower bed.

Halloween is not just for kids...
what about those gorgeous pets
that we snuggle, love, kiss and willfully spoil?
Shouldn't they have their own
special Howlween and Meowween
with treats never tasted in a bright party hall?

I love pets as you all do, and with loving and tender care    
I spoil them with warm clothes and matching shoes;
a wool hat and tiny gloves to keep them from frost!
Look at them, aren't they adorable and look sharper 
than the less-loved pets that are bored with their blues?  
Can you compare a well-groomed one to a scruffy one? 

On this coming Halloween, dress up your pets for success,
disregard the dumb looks of certain unintelligent folks,
they never see humor in anyone or anything, and they can't laugh
at these cuties that have a ton of affection on their mellow faces;
what would they do to be patted or be cuddled in their embrace?
They would give them their howleen and neowween for a soft caress!

And on every street people walk their dogs and cats dressed like mine,
what a surprise to watch this parade of adorable pets that look up and smile!
They will never know who was the genius behind all this, but gently and happily they stroll!
So who's to say that Halloween isn't for them? They're like our children who delight our soul!
And on each Halloween night, let them out, and let them do their Howlween and Meowween,
to enjoy the Halloween celebration, but tomorrow they'll not remember where they had been!

Screen Door

Nails, tools, drill and bits on a warm spring day in May.  Watching closely to hear you 
say….”Pass me a Phillips” or some tool I know nothing about. As you fix my screen 
door without no doubt.

Smiling and sparkling with sweat on your face.
As you wonder if everything will fit into place.
“Looks good from here”, I say to myself. “Next he needs to fix my wobbling shelf.”

Needless to say it took more than a day to fix that stubborn door.
Maybe because we both just wanted more…. time to explore the endless 
possibilities of that open screen door.

And here we are now years later,
Screen door finally repaired and holding strong. But you still get to use your nails, 
tools, drill and bits All Year Long.
Our Kids now make sure you feel like you belong.

Love You Dear

She Is My Lady

And there she sits, the lady who takes your breath away;
Her absence from my life would just mean a flay.
She sits with a smile but her eyes twinkle,
She would take whatever given, but a ray of expectation would still sprinkle.

Not an admirer of glamor and she would never clamor,
All she needs to know and learn, that where ever you go to her you would return.
If not a diamond ring, if not a love song you sing;
She needs to read it in your eyes, that the relation was never built on lies.

You want to kiss her and she kisses you back which ain't right,
Don't push it further, just sleep off the night.
Next morning when you wake up to the sun,
She'll deliver her love to you, that kiss will engulf you in stun.

You slide just next to her, wondering what she would think,
Her eyes inviting blue, and when she smiles pink.
Pull out the red rose from behind & see the contentment in her eyes.
And that moment you know, she is your angle love in disguise.

The drink of my soul

Beautiful you are to my soul
 no matter what the day may bring
 You take your hands and kiss my tears
 and there by your feet I will stay

Just to be filled with you
 and have your compassion in my eyes
 I bend myself down to give to you a drink
 a drink of my soul

For you have already touched that place
 my fiber, the very life of me
 carrying me to my majestic sweet fountain
 my air is fresher as I rest on your unclouded mountain
 it's there my mind is made clear and you are priceless

Its the way I blossom and sprout in my soul
 you give me reason to love beyond hope
 for you are that special drink... 
 the drink in my soul.

Dear Life: Dear Love

I know when I talk, 
I am passionate. 

I know when I act, 
I am driven. 

I know when I love, 
I am scared. 

Thing is, we are all passionate about something. 

I flip out a lot, 
I sometimes shake with frustration,
I sometimes lose my breath. 

I know I am not the most open person in the world, 
But you have to cherish and appreciate the moments
I knock down some walls. 

I apologize for the moments I say things out of anger, 
I apologize for the moments I turn away.  
I have my flaws, 
I am not perfect, 
But that's the best thing out of life and love: 
It's to build foundations and grow from them. 

I hurt easily. 
I only expect the best, 
Because I've seen the worst.

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

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.

These Salty Waves Pt 1

What am I supposed to think? What am I supposed to say? All these lies you bottled up come sweeping, crashing with the tides. My footing's gone, the ocean real, but how am I supposed to feel? And here I am, a drowning mess, a loveless lie, I do protest. And here I am a drowning mess. So all those things you said to me? Where they just lies out of pity? So all those things you said to me? Or am I lost in salty waves? Yes I know my future's grave. Or am I lost in salty waves?And now the panic in my head, when I should be tucked up in your bed, reels and reels right here instead.I'm going down, a sinking ship, funny what name drips off my lips. It is not God, or Angles plenty, or even that I'm just damn ready To let go of the hell and the lies. I'm wishing for your gentle eyes. Or at least the way they always seemed, but perhaps that's just this salty dream. I have no clue what I'm to do! A drowning hopeless mess, for you-- think it's cute, and oh so funny, but here's the bitter truth now honey. I'm going down. There is no help. I can't be saved by God himself. I put my life, my whole world of trust, and you've thrown it away for lust. Well what the hell's a girl to do? I'm just so entranced by you!

What I Meant To Say

What I meant to say was...

I'm sorry, and
I miss you,
And I forgive you and I hate you
I meant to tell you that I want to work it out 
between us,
And it could never work between us, 
There's this thing between us,
Though you have my whole and soul
I listen for your whisper at night,
All day,
I sickly dread crossing paths
I promise you I meant to talk to you again,
Unless I got in my way
I cry to you, at you, sometimes for you
But nevermore in front of you
You've made me stronger than that, though
I do love you
I meant to tell you that you're scum

What I meant to tell you was that
I can still feel your love
Your lies
Your kiss
Your sighs
The quiet way you left me in the night
Or the messy way I ripped you from my side
Your wish to die
Your guilt, my guilt, my lies
Nevermore I want to cry

What I meant to say is I'm drawn to you
For love of danger, or neglect
Not for love of myself (or is it?)

What I meant to say is that I love you,
But I choose me.

To My Husband,My Life,My Eternal Valentine

This is to thank you for being by my side,
For comforting and caring when I was
all confused inside.

This is for the phone calls you make everyday,
Just to tell me " I love you" every minute 
of the day.

The way you take my hand in yours
For all the world to see,
That this is the woman,
Who is most special to me.
You always seem to know 
When I need a hug, kiss or smile...
You never cease to amaze me
When you say "I'm here..let's talk for a while."

In decades past we've had our share
of ups and downs and problems galore,
But you are the one who remained at my side,
Never thinking of walking out the door.

Iadore the way youtell me, 
"you are my forever best friend"
Ilove the way I believe in you..
Thank you for listening as I ramble on..
When things become rather tough.

We are in the best years of our lives
Almost one year on our journey together,
Iwant to grow old with you..And you with me.
Iwant to love you "forever"..

Today is an anniversary for me, 
although there will be no smiles, no cheers, no congratulations. 
This is the anniversary where there are no words to say,
It's when I remember someone, who passed away. 

He was very close to me, 
let me open up to you, so you can see. 
He was the son of my mother, 
in other words, he was my brother.

Let me paint a picture for you of what we had,
but be warned, this is sad.
From the ages of 10 to 12, he said nothing, not even a mutter.
He was ridiculed by classmates, because he had a stutter. 

After that, life was a hard, scary dream.
One in which he had no confidence or self esteem.
All of this nightmare turned into a reality, 
because of our ignorance and brutality.

He grew up big and strong,
but you could see in his eyes, there is something wrong.
He was 6'2'' and had a body to envy
At age 22 he was what every man wanted to be.

He made himself that way, to have a protective shell,
under his skin, you could see he wasn't well.
He had so very many friends, that he did neglect,
he couldn't get close to people, he meant no disrespect.

He tried so hard at so many things, 
but at a young age, cruelty snipped his wings.
Inside he was afraid so he showed no expression,
looking back, I now see the face of deep depression.

I talked to him and said it's safe and sound,
so he gave it a chance and he came around.
One day he became the father,
of a very beautiful daughter.

His world revolved around his daughter and girlfriend,
but quickly things started to descend.
"Daddy I want you to be with me," 
but he couldn't, she was wealthy, and got full custody. 

I got a call at work, but orders are backing up you see,
I couldn't answer, all he wanted to say was "help me." 
In this world he saw only pain with no light, 
So he ended his life that fateful night.  

I want one more chance to answer that phone. 
I want one more chance to hug you when you come home.
I miss you more than my tears and words can say, 
I had you for 16 years, and for that I am grateful in every way,
When I pray, I will always ask for just one more day.
I miss and love you so much, I just wanted you to know that, ok.

Love is blind

Love is blind 
And so hard to find 
Close your eyes and see 
Not out, but inside me 

That's where my heart is 
I'll show you with just one kiss 
Your heart so sweet 
Your eyes so beautiful 

And when our lips meet 
It feels so wonderful 
This love I found so nice 
Because your heart is not cold like ice.

I got to confess
The first date, you in that black dress
Had me quite possessed
Eyes glued to your chest
I didn’t know what to expect
All I could think was when can I see you next
Now I know why grandpa use to say show respect
Because now I’m the only man laying kisses on your neck
And in other places to make you wet
And it’s the bomb you can bet, yup
But it’s not just about the sex
It’s the T.L.C you give to me
Baby you know what I mean
It’s the times I get to hold you that mean the most to me
There’s no better feeling than having you close to me
Because when your next to me it’s like ecstasy
I can finally feel free and that’s no doubt
Cause you can see in my eyes, full of ‘wow’
Every time I see your bright smile
And I promise
Only in bed with you will I ever act wild

Anniversary Poem

Our love is infinite
Forever is what are union is
Complete is what you make me
When Dark clouds are before me
I know you are not far behind
Watching over me
Guiding and Protecting me always

Imperfect perfection
Is our relationship
Tears fallen, hearts broken
But, when it is all said and done
I know you will be by my side
Because you live your life just to love me

Loyal and true
You have been there
Through all my mistakes
And never thought any less of me
You always said that I was perfect in your eyes
Though my life has lacked achievement and stature
I feel like the richest woman in the world
Because I have what most people search their whole lives for
A soul mate who completes them
Your love is a priceless gem that I will always treasure
Thank you for loving me

Believe Me, My Love

Preface: Written for my wife on our Anniversary less than 13 month's after the tragic death 
of our 22 yr. old son.

Believe Me, My Love

I felt helpless when the earth just stopped, 
and tragedy scourged you with its whip.
Watched your soul bleed faith, heard your heart cry love, 
and I winced with every drip.
The loss and pain you’ve suffered through, 
should now render you immune.
Believe me love,
my love for you is deeper than your wounds.  

When I looked into your heart, 
I could see the welts and scars.
The reasons that I loved you were as countless as the stars.
When I looked into your eyes, 
tears flowed like spring monsoons
Believe me dear, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

You worried me, which fed my fears, 
but surprised me with your fight.
Amazed you could get out of bed, 
when dawn poured her morning light,
You’re stronger than a hurricane, 
and you eclipsed just like the moon.
Believe me honey, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

My gift to you, 
if there were no rules, for our anniversary,
is to take you back , baby close your eyes, 
to the way things used to be,
you’re curled up in bed with your three boys, 
fit snug like silver spoons.
Believe me darling, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds. 

When I reach into your heart, 
I still feel the welts and scars.
The reasons I admire you are as endless as the stars.
When I melt into your eyes, 
sadness lingers as life resumes.
Believe me, my love: my love for you is deeper than your wounds.

You’ve made my life a banquet, 
you’re my soul mate and my lover,
I fell in love with my best friend, 
and married a wonderful mother.
Your songs of love and encouragement remain constantly in tune.
Believe me my love, 
my love for you is deeper than your wounds.

Truth Through You

The all knowing,
showing our hidden
secrets of
deep crushes;
that boy in the back row with
long blonde dread locks,
snowy-blue eyes,
with hands that sweat
when he is called upon by the teacher,
though only you recognize this fact.
Or that girl,
always wearing chains
hair black and red,
too small to be recognized;
I don't think she cares.
They shatter our hearts,
when they promptly decline the return
of love.
Secrets of
hidden pasts,
the world; turns black.
You never realize the
the way your body,
without the help of your logic,
but the help of your daytime thoughts,
your desires,
shows your heart,
your basic wants,
your needs,
like the loves you want,
and the true feelings
of those
closest to you;
love, hate, jealousy.
As you are
as deep as an ocean
with your
shining subconscious,
with love,
like the sun's early morning beams
on a calm blue ocean.
You have more to hide,
than a cursed vampire,
always running from the truth,
though you are not he,
but a waiting woman,
beautiful in sight,
unforgettable in thought,
for the vampire steals your knowledge;
ensuring you that you are safe,
forcing you to relive those
pain filled moments
so that
he can
with the past
and future.
But you've already given
to him
the symbol of your sincerity,
through a promise.
A promise to stay with him,
to make things work,
solving each problem,
fixing every broken part,
a promise to,
in the end,
be together,
I take them easily,
from your willing hands,
your previous thoughts,
and the love you give me.
So when, that night,
me basking in the
bright light
of my favorite computer game,
battling others on the
fields of justice,
the League of Legends,
and you gradually rolled over
opened your eyes, glistening,
impossible to miss
even in the
dark, enclosed room,
and you ask of me,
with thoughts of purity,
"Come to bed,
I want to sleep next to you,
feel your warmth"
I lost myself in you,
and even though I wasn't tired,
I wrapped up in the large
warm blankets
draped my arms softly over you,
and lost myself to my own Subconscious,
in hopes you will see,
through the most inner parts of
what makes me,
that I truly, truly love you too.

They walked together
down a golden path
through trials and tribulations,
through hopes and dreams, 
joy and fear;
with mutual sacrifice 
and collective determination.
With passion, purpose
and enduring love
they remained united 
for half a century
in a beautiful relationship
that made them one.

He wasn't the greatest father, I admit at last;
his defiant ways weren't instilled in me as I grew up,
I observed how he spoke and thought by garnering fright, 
" That would never be me! " I promised myself. 
Why couldn't he show love...was that wrong?
Why did he hide his affection not to make me strong?

As a lost ship on a stormy sea,
I ventured on life's lonely journey:
gathering courage and not trembling throughout darkness,
being so confident that I would have overcome all obstacles! 
What did comfort me, if not hope and prayer that even now I seek?
Why didn't despair overwhelm me when everything was  bleak?

Through space and distance, I'll reach out to hug him as I'll cry out aloud... 
to feel the depth of his unexpressed love hidden behind those stern eyes
which kept me from giving it back by making me immensely grieve!
Perhaps he will have another change to show it when Christ comes
to teach him the righteous ways of the one who refused to believe...
giving up man's worthless ego to be affectionate and give with true pride!

60th Anniversary

"Once upon a time..."
every story starts that way.
Grandkids often listen
about stories from old days. 

"I walked that route to my old school, 
my oldest brother and me, 
and then I joined the Air force.
We traveled, your Grandma and me."

"I used to work at a root beer stand."
Grandma tells us, as we whine
about how gas prices are going up, 
"I took the bus, and made nickels and dimes."

Their story is like a country song, 
in love through the years.
And then it dawned upon me, 
their 60th anniversary is near!

I'll be married soon myself.
I hope we're just like them. 
Two important people in my life, 
I'm glad they took to him.

They go beyond their call of duty
with everyone they know. 
Sacrifices and little things, 
not enough appreciation shown. 

Grandma, we love your tasty treats, 
and Grandpa, your bright orange hat!
Thanks Grandma for sewing up my jeans, 
thanks Grandpa for my baseball bat!

But also, more importantly, 
thank you for your love.
To us, and to each other.
The Lord shines on you from above.

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.

somber annuals

eyes of sunken hollow
skin stretched thin as tallow
stooping for a coin
so shallow
and falling
for that pretty shimmer
hammered with a faierie's splinter
pupil eyeing in the snow
so shallow the sallow
heart of him
with legs unsteady
and brain too heady
he let the pretty shimmer go
and wept to bleed 
bright red white snow

The Web

The workings of soft, silk strides…
They are left by whom? The twice fourth eyes. 
Led souls to thy center of sanguine streams,
To one, words flow out to say what I mean.
In words of organic cords,
Be the melody of a key.
Todays for tonights,
Close eyed in company.
For in rain and in shine,
Twined with the warmth of canopy. 
How shall it burn within all of time,
For your love is all I see.
This and all my might,
It be you and only you.
No struggles or angered plights, 
The one who sees me through.
You found me like bright kites,
In the air, carried out to you.
For today I can sway in the wind of our days 
And glide together towards a life of two.
Where I can say,
I truly love you.

The MRS and I

home alone while the wife’s at work
when she’s home T-bone steak or pork

in two-thousand-six we met
since then I’ve been her pet

ups and downs we have had a few
no matter what we’re always two

we’re laughing and loving all the way
almost like children always at play

while poetry is my backbone
this relationship is in stone

far from a dream

I have a rich love that awaits your claim each day i breathe you, the consequences 
of your love flow supernaturally free. My worst fears are shattered and wiped away 
just the thought of loving you unconditionally can put knowledge into the weakest 
brain. Our unity is pure as a thousand gold bars wrapped in silk resting on a bed of 
pearls, you are truly my loves symbolic figure of triumph, a juggernaut of affection; 
graceful as the flap of a hummingbirds wings when it first begins to sing.

Happy Birthday

A birthday present to my Gramps, Hugh McCorkidale Young.

Heaven has a place for you
Unswaying was your faith in such
Goodness always will shine through
Holding on to that has been my crutch

Many others knew you well
Cokey, heard of through the town
Countless tales they had to tell
Of all the men, you held the crown

Real though it is, it's hard to believe
Know as I do the ways of the world
In the fact that you could ever leave
Darkening my mind till my thoughts unfurled

Aloud, I cannot bring to bear
Lonely I must hold my heart
Even by myself I fear
Your absence will tear me apart

Onwards though the world must move
Unendingly your memory will stay
No-one has forgotten you
Gone though you are, you'll never fade.

you, stand by you, motivate and take care of you. Respect you and trust you. More than 
anything, I will Love You without any doubts.

I’m taking this leap with you praying to God to bless our marriage and to be there helping us 
through. Baby, this journey that we’re about to embark on is all new. This is the first and last 
for both of us, so it’s up to me & you to make it work, and see it through.

Baby, please cherish my heart and take my hand. Vowing to love each other till the very end.

Happy Birthday Gurl!

Today's the birthday of my gurl,
I must go out and shop for her.

Some perfume or jewelry, I must get,
A bracelet she will like, I bet.

Dinner with soft music, might do,
With a dozen of roses, or two.

We must definitely dance for a while,
I like the way that makes her smile.

Long, before it starts to get late,
She will, carefully, cut the cake;

As she closes her eyes to say a wish,
I'll stand close, for a hug and a kiss.

I'll take some pictures of this day,
To share them in a very special way.

I'll add captions and a word or two,
Then place them on a background of blue;

Of the pictures that I'll take for her.
Yes, to show her that she's my gurl -

And she will remember this day;
With the hope - more will come our way.

The Birthday Cake

Delicious scents of cocoa tease the nose
While baking a cake for candles to crown
A tender greeting for a birthday treat
As brightly wrapped parcels gently repose
All chosen with care so my love is shown
Today it is her I shall celebrate.
My passion baked into morsels, sweet
My love declared with a scented, red rose
And breakfast in bed needs no dressing gown.
It is her love that made my life complete
From that first tender kiss on our first date
I’ve welcomed the warmth she placed in my heart;
Now love’s wants and needs can anticipate
As from her side I can never depart.

Soul Of A Stripper, Life Of A Housewife

The music thumps, the walls jump
She pole dances against the jamb
Dust rag in her right
Polish in her left hand

House is hers for a few hours
To fulfill a fantasy
Bump and grind it babe
The vacumn whiiiirrrs away

Shake that booty, strut that stuff
Transfer clothes in washer to dryer
Wearing faded blue jeans
Kick that leg up higher

Beds are made, bunnies dusted
She cat walks looking demure
Practises a sultry pout
Wiping spots from the mirror

Work the shoulders, drop to a deep squat
Then stick the tush up in the air
Family is due home very soon
Straighten her clothing with care

Greet the kids with hugs, husband with kisses
Getting  dinner to the table
While news plays in the background
Her life is happy, solid and stable

Dishes washed, kids off to sleep
Taking my husband by the hand
This housewife leads him to our room
Where her stripper soul takes command

Cupid with the O

No I am not some naked
little winged boy
shooting arrows
like water my love
for you flows
I will stand on a mountain
like a cock in the morning that crows
my love for you echos
test my chest
I love the best
In me your love
you can invest
loving you is a pleasure
in my heart you I will always treasure
did you know that love for you
is a need
for my heart today
I got no wings
but for you my heart sings
for you my love won’t fade at all
because I am Cupid with the ”O”
I am your beloved angel…

One love per annum

On this day the yellow flowers bloom

The sun still shines after a million years

Our eyes are sparkling and not shedding tears

The world is so bright; there’s no place for gloom

One may ask me why these things happen.

What a lovely year for us it has been!


One year has passed when I heard you say “Yes”

The memory is like a green apple –

Fresh! In my mind I can clearly recall

Our dialogue later leading to bliss.

‘Twas the beginning of my life complete

Together with a girl nicknamed “Entet.”


My love for you is like an interest

You are the rate; I am the principal

After a year I make a withdrawal

For one love per annum – it is the best!

Even your amount remains the same

I will increase mine, so we shall still gain.


Happy anniversary, dear Princess!

The sun still shines; the yellow flowers bloom

For what are they doing that and to whom?

Every mind filled with love must never guess,

For surely the world knows it is our day

For one love per annum, so we must pay.


I hope that our love will be like trees

Evergreen and strong despite drought and storm,

Giving the world fresh air and cozy home,

Lasting not for short but for centuries

My love for you is like the green, green leaves

While there is plant around my love still lives.


To Princess

Where the Smoke Goes

Preface:  Written for my parents on their 50th wedding anniversary

Where the Smoke Goes 

I went to the place where the smoke goes, from all our blown out candles.
I found pounds of Cape Cod beach sand there, broken kites and long lost sandals.
Over eighteen thousand days flown by since your promise of “I do”,
wandered all around 
this place and found, 
more reasons to love you. 

I climbed a forgotten apple tree, so I could easily survey.
I saw mountains made of sawdust, valleys of bills you had to pay.
Lumber stacked from projects past, knick-knacks from church bazaars.
I reminisced, 
just how much I missed, 
finding old chewed up cigars.
I held my breath and dove into the lake made from our tears.
Baptized again, saw family and friends that I’ve missed over the years.
They brought me all the breaths you’ve held, fifty years worth put together,
and showed me the boat 
you kept afloat, 
through rough seas and stormy weather.
I found rooms of things you went without, to give us what we needed,
and realized then, how much we’ve reaped, from the garden that you seeded.
I saw every time we counted on you, stacked higher than the sun,
I heard loved ones say, 
the times you turned us away, 
added up to less than one.
They showed me five happy childhoods, filled with loving memories,
and read five prayers for fifty more, Happy Anniversaries.
I couldn’t find a way to show how much, we love and thank you both,
for promising “I do”, 
and yes, you two, 
made damn good upon your oath.
The smell of homemade biscuits slowly cooking filled the air,
but awoke before I tasted one, in my Adirondack chair.
I left the place where the smoke goes, from our blown out candle wishes,
but I’ll come back each time, 
I need to find,
the treasures my soul misses.

Imagine how sad December would seem
if Christmas didn't exist; only the chill
and wind would be felt through the frozen bones,
nobody would live in these northern, frigid zones. 

What was the true purpose of Jesus's birth?
Some even would say that it never occurred,
and why would the Magi travel long days
and nights to pay homage to the humblest of Kings?

It was prophesied by Isaiah in the Old testament and the Wise Men believed him,
following with awe the biggest and brightest star that they had ever seen;
and didn't it seem strange that God would choose those simple shepherds
to be the first to hear that message sung by a thousands of angels?

Wouldn't you be happy when a child cries out and enters life?
Wouldn't you celebrate that event with overwhelming joy and grace?
The same way Jesus entered this world to suffer and die,
and if Christmas didn't exist, who would remember who He was?

Wouldn't that envious angel, whom God expelled from Heaven with haste,
laugh loudly, knowing that we don't worship Him in spirit and faith? 
Fallen Angels are the eternal enemies of this Child, who atoned our sins
by paying with His precious vindicate the Devil's astute lies!

If Christmas didn't exist, some unbelievers would shout and rejoice,
happy to erase Christ's redemptive message from the earth's surface...
contradicting the Scriptures themselves and the Divinity behind it!
Didn't Herod the Great hate Jesus, fearing He would have become the new King?

We've been together for ages now
and I still love your perfume.
I never get tired of living with you
and I don't think I should, too.

Not money can change my feelings for you,
nobody can to that to me.
All I need is your love, your warmth, your eyes,
I'll always belong to you.

I hope were together forever this way,
I hope, because I don't know.
Love me, please darling, love me all day
and I will never go.

A Walk In The Garden In Moonlight Part 1 of 2

( Song of Solomon 4: 16 )

We Walked In The Garden At Midnight
We Walked Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Among Azealeas & Verbenas & Blue Jonquils
Sweet Honeysuckle, Yellow Primroses & Daffodils
Among White Phlox & Orchids & Pretty Pink Quills
Two Lovers Holding Hands In Romantic Thrill
Your Touch Grows That Budding Power Still

As We Walked In The Garden At Midnight
We Walked Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Among Tulips and Lilies and Wine-Hued Amaryllys
Intoxicating Lilacs & Jasmine & Ground-Cover Iris
Breathing In Lavender & Vanilla & Bougainvillea Scents
Wafting Heady & Sensual Yet of Shy-Perfume Strength

While Walking In The Garden At Midnight
While Walking Thru The Garden In Moonlight

A "Home Sweet Home" Brass Plaque Cast Soft Glints
By A Heartshaped Box Holding Moonflowers & Herb-Mints
Symbolizing Love's Nature The Way It Was Meant
& There Was A Touch of Citrus Somewhere, Just A Hint

Wafting From Beyond Our Closest Neighbor's Fence
Bowed To Our Queens of The Nights As Darkness Squints
and Slender Topiary Stands Crowned With Hyacinths
Guards Our Garden Where So Much Time Is Spent

Walking In The Garden At Midnight
Walking Thru The Garden In Moonlight

Our Garden, Well Tended, Cultivated Thru Till & Toil
Thorn Blooddrops & Brow-Sweat - Has Moistened Our Soil
 Sprouting Tendrils & Offshoots That Loops Softly In Coils
On Our Garden's Ground - Grown So Large & Lovely & Loyal
(as More Queens of The Night & Roses Reigned Royal)

The Story Is: 
We Saw The "For Sale" Sign ...  & It Was Love At First Sight
For Our Family & Our Future, It Would Fit Us Just Right
We Bought The Ground-Plot - Our Land of Dreams So Bright
... Built A House, Made A Home & A Garden of Delight

Filled With Peonies, Carnations & My Philodendron-Fetish
Hydrangeas Spilling Riotously All Over The Trellis
Ivy Interwoven All Thru The Surrounding Lattice
Periwinkle & Prize Winning Magnolias Embellish
As Cattails Encircle The Pond - Our Garden's Chalice
We Walked Past Gladiolus & Silver Sage At Midnight
We Stepped Into Our Private - Garden Stage In Moonlight

Our Eyes Became Stars A Reflective Shine
Our Lips Became Sprinklers - Our Arms Were Vines
That Clung To Both Limbs - Yours & Mine
That Attached Like Roots of Evergreen Pines
That Rose Like Stems That Bleeding Heart-Flowers Climb
Among Four O'Clocks & Hollyhocks & Silver Thyme

While Wading Thru The Garden At Midnight
While Wooing In The Garden In Moonlight

What is love

Is love a feeling trapped deep inside 
that any painful moment can cause you to cry
Is love an infatuation with the opposite sex
feeling you must always be at your very best

Is love a thought, action, or deed
grown in the heart from the planting of a seed
for what is love but a single notion
that drives the heart with many emotions

Is love the warmth beneath a gentle breath
that sends uncontrollable chills down the back of your neck
Is love the desire behind a stare that leaves you in a daze
hypnotize by lust struck within its gaze

Is love the security felt from a strong embrace
or the steady soft caress of a hand upon your face
is love missing someone when they've gone on a long trip
or the heated passion of a slow kiss upon your lips

Is love merely knowing someone will always be there
just knowing your heart and life will always be shared

Marie III--Is the Coffin Too Deep

So frigid was her immaculate body Her last second in screams is all I can see Love's revenge was my guilt With you I'd rather let you die with Bound hands Without you, Marie, like the psychopath's dream Death is all that I can see; All that could redeem Did anyone ask Did anyone recall The sweet taste of the poison The swift slash of the knife he penetration of the lead The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Was it so hard to solve Was it so hard to see That I strangled her so easily My nails piercing her comely skin Blood dripping like the pomegranate I crushed with the shovel I shattered her shins The knife to slight her wrists Didn't you see I did it all The only witness Couldn't say Is the coffin too deep? The pain of her decaying hear tI can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Marie I cant stay Earth is to cruel when your coffin is to deep Forever in death and in death alone The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep?

Hills and mountains are bowing
Beautiful clouds are drifting
Overwhelmed animals are shouting
The sun is smiling,
while its heat cooks the sweet-scented roses
Changing the weather's aroma
Wait a moment,smell it,I guess you want to taste
The sea exhibiting skills with her waves
Wow! the bays and headlands exclaim
Water overflows the oasis
Giving the desert a great relief
Did someone say what's happening?
Hear the birds sing

Glory be to the king!
Glory be to the king!
To whom who saw us in doom
Brought us to the room of light
To whom who became a lamb for my sake
The lamb whose precious blood set me free
Glory the to the king!
Glory be to the king!

The king was born today
Let the dogs bay
Let the donkeys bray
All to hail his name

Ode To Sony

Eighteen years of sorrow and abandonment.
Eighteen years of drowning in my own tears and the pity of the pathetic bystanders.
Eighteen years, and it finally comes to me in a sweet epiphany:
MY life starts here.
And what a better way to begin a life than to share it with another?
With a woman no words can describe, no matter how beautiful and exotic
(it would be an insult to say I could,
 for she is anything but definable).
I have an eternity to look forward to with this woman who I pale,
in comparison.
The woman with the dazzling eyes and perfect smile.
I can forget about regression
and progress to achieve everything I never believed existed in the world.
At least, 
not anymore.
I hear in her voice the sincerity I have craved my entire life.
It's a wondrous thing when you can admit,
that you can literally hear love bubbling up inside the crevices of someone's soul.
She has opened my eyes and ears,
spirit and heart,
when I needed a rescuing no one but her could have offered
with words unrelatable to a past that's eaten holes into my heart.

And she calls herself lucky...

My Vow

I want to vow my undenying love to the
I'll be true to thee
As long as you're loving me
Treat you like my treasure piece worth more than gold
For a lifetime our love will never grow fold
Give you all the love and respect youdeserve
For I am your husband, I will serve
Love you until i give my last grasp
Communicate our love for each other
And don't try to mask it
Build a fortress for our love and our love only
I promise never to leave you lonely
Nothing will ever come between us again
For that would be a sin
I'm giving you my everything
With all the joy and happiness it can and will bring
I vow my undernying love to you

Forgotten Love Found

Forgotten Love Found
March 31, 2011

I thought she was lost
I did not know at what cost
She did not want me
So she let me be free
But now I have no more fear
For now she has returned here
Do I really know to see?
That she really does need and want me
For now I will think and just sit
This is her chance to prove it
I will truly be very strong
And she must show me that I was wrong
Should I let go of the slack
She must show me she wants me back
Will she really come and show 
If so my heart will have such a glow
As the sun is so hot and bright in the sky
I will lose all my fears and know why
I want to hold her so bad
And by doing so I will never again be sad
All my love I will give to her now
The amount she will never know how
We will make love for the first time
It will be so exciting and so extremely fine
I hope she will want me forever
If to be we will always be together
We will have to be till the end
This is the best time we can begin

My Teddy

Warm, cuddly, and just for me Me and my teddy are meant to be Through good and bad he's there by my side Always listening or making me smile My heart always flutters when he is near He is the one thing I hold so dear I'm so glad I found him Because he's the best thing in my life I wrote this poem to let him know The love I have sings deep within my soul And if you're wondering just who my teddy is Close your eyes and count to ten Because soon we'll be together again To live our life hand in hand. When I see him I almost run, I already know we'll have so much fun, I give him a hug and whisper in his ear, Stay by my side And we'll laugh and cry Trough thick and thin Until we die And if you haven't yet guessed My Teddy is you." He looks at me with a mocking smile, Almost as if he knew all the while. With his caramel eyes shinning like gold, He opens his arms and around me they fold. Don't worry my dear, the night's not yet through, Smile, be happy because you're my teddy too."

Me And Luis' One Month

Its just what you do to me
that gets me through the day
its the smile on your face
that takes my pain away
its the love thats in my heart
for you so strong and true
so i guess im done with searching
cause i dont think ill find another boy like you
you the one thats in my head
i think of everynight
as i lie awake in my bed
loving you feels so right
i just wanna be the perfict one for you
i know we make mistakes
but i know somehow we'll make it thorugh
before my heart brakes
i just wanna know if im the only one who sees
that i am in love
or is it just what you do to me
when my world would fall apart
you would help me to survive
your like the beat of my heart
that keeps me alive
and eventhough it seems 
that love is just pretend
i have to dissagree
cause your more than just a friend
your the air that i breath
the only one i believe
the only light in my world that i can see
am i in love or is it just what you do to me

Happy B'Day

Happy Birthday … Now and Forever More

I was going to send you diamonds and pearls,
but I don’t want to let anything outshine your beauty……
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay.
I thought of giving you the world and the stars and the moons,
but I don’t want to burden your soul ……
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay.
For your life’s journeys will bring you gifts,
even when there is not much to celebrate ……
Just always remember…
You are one in a million and that’s how you should stay,
On this your day, Happy Birthday

How all of it happened

And all of this happened by taking your hand…
We were two strangers, knowing each-other,
We turned into lovers, now we need one another.
Since then were a duo and when together,
We forget all the others and live forever.

And all of this happened by taking your hand…
We were just friends, laughing about the weather,
Who we became can be seen through an angel’s feather.
And if we are cheerful on this golden way,
Then my love and yours will be here to stay.

Fallen in Love

How did I breathe before you were near?
Each lonely feeling made to disappear.
Listening to your voice is music so sweet.
Looking upon you my heart skips a beat.
Oh how this feeling changes my life.
Lost in this moment I know no pain or strife.
Our joy and promise I am certain of; 
Victorious union written in stars above.
Everything I am, I give you my love.

Floating silently on the wind

The Correct Decision

In a world crowded with people, and everyone fighting for the catch 
It is such a miracle that I managed to find my perfect match; 

I am so very lucky to get to spend so many years with you 
Even after all this time the love in my heart still it feels anew, 

Our Wedding Anniversary reminds me of that beautiful day 
When you entered my life and sent all my sorrows far away; 

I made the best decision and took you as my partner for life, 
It is something I will be thankful for, even after I die.

It's Saturday...
It's today...
The shouts are familiar afar
behind the bars of my mind
It's today…
The streets are packed with people,
but, the day's troubled in pain.
Crows disperse off the trees,
intimidated by the hoots of a 7 train
I'm walking and time flees
with the head fixed up in the sky.
Can't help thinking,
The Sun still shines,
squirrels are  frolicking...
Today is my birthday.
I take another lonely breath in,
even the sea is celestial blue,
It was four, three hours back,
Don’t know why, no clue,
everybody is here,
except you.

The Things I Feel Inside of Me

The things I feel inside of me,
I doubt anyone will ever know.
The things I feel inside of me,
I try so hard not to let them show.
The things I feel inside of me, 
Sometimes makes me cry,
The things I feel inside of me,
Make me wonder why I'm ALIVE!
The things I've seen,
The things I've done,
Makes it hard as hell,
For me to live on!
My life is so much better now,
Than it was before,
I finally have someone that loves me,
That I love even more!
This man comforts me, 
When I'm feeling all alone,
The man gives me shelter,
After 25 years I finally have a home!
It's not the walls, the roof, 
or even the floor,
It's the Love and Understanding, 
That I never had before!
I need this man,
More than he'll ever know,
To hold me and love me,
As we grow old!
His smile can always, 
Brighten up a room,
He eyes tell me,
He loves me, 
And he'll never leave me, Blue!
His arms they hold me,
And touch me so gentle.
His body, so handsome and sexy,
I can't get enough!
He always makes me smile,
Even when I want to cry.
He always kisses me gentle,
To tell me he's at my side.
He loves with all he is,
Was, or ever will be, 
With him is where I'll stay,
Through eternity!

love's divine, with italian fine wine, we dine, link hands and recline, the ambiance makes this so fine. I made her an offer, and the angel didnt decline, ill give you whats mine,love's unlimited divine attention, not to mention, devotion, tenderness, and affection. Your a cut above the rest, the finest selection. ill be your knight in a shining tux, and give you protection never negletion, or worse, seperation. This isnt a smooth operation, a game or dictation or donation,or a false allegation, you cant make that accusation. I tell you the truth, you can make a quotation. I want you, until the end of life's destination. We own the type of love that deserves an ovation. Its far beyond my wildest estimation. Since i met you, my life went through a reformation, you are my rehabilitation. i dream you, taste you and feel you in my meditation, with you always in my contemplation. when you need me, my dove, there will be no procrastination. Our love is like helium, its a total elevation, a gravity defying emancipation, a liberartion that makes my heart stop in suspenstion, thats how deeply i felt your connection. moments stored in my memory for recollection your my love's divine and my jubilation.

My Pa

Had a dream about my Pa tonight, We all went out with them to Lake Loral Nancy His wife cooking up a good ol' Chicken Pot Stew slow-cooked set way up high atop the hickory us loading up the Bayliner for our afternoon fishing trip. We reminisced, Canoe in toe as we used to do just in case, yes just as we did back then; you-know if either would wished to float to one or more sides with the Canoe tied to the railings of the boat, or more or less to widen the chance at a greater spot to cast a gander upon our luck... . My Father by adoption; having-stated many times early on in-all of our teenier all together, God being-in-charge of all good-Blessings and if-you will--luck... we'll always catch some albeit one Yes I began to see through this statement he mentioned often God is always presenting always providing this-His Honest Hope, for us both--as I believe like my Pa, for any one yes everyone who is patient remains-open... ! Our woes, and Peace abiding... uncertainty grievances questions yes laughter were our main recollections as we dropped our first lines as we cast them... . I tell you I truly did love Him, still love Him, will always I figure... yes I know Some folk are so defined never wish to grow any further their Character divorced by Cancer, Nary did my Father allow it. On the day he passed He told Nancy, "I love my life. My Family Children. Love all those close to me.... but I'm tiered just plain wore out." the Lord took Him that night, the next day forthcoming I was told and O how I cried — But then realized as I saw he lived the greater life - He worked on this purpose until the day he died, and so for all he work for this final reprieve — it was for all of the ones he loved, because I feel for all whom he loved, he'd prayed for all to do the same... Yes a suffering in kind the same I'm seeing now - All-of-it I'm-finding; because he taught me the greater of his Faith nary a day apart from Him, and me... his youngest Son two Others older Sons if you will, yes I feel his family and friends still have this eminent belief to boast; Yes, in-the Company--Comfort... of Jesus' Peace... !

You came down the aisle and took my hand,
We exchanged rings with a vow, so now here we stand.

The first few years we spent our time,
You sharing my reasons; Me learning your rhymes.

The children came...binding us closer together,
Our family's boat has sailed in all kinds of weather.

We felt the bumps, the heat, the joys, the toil,
It was all worth it, as we now look back and smile.

Our children grew and we watched them with pride,
As only parents can know...from down deep inside.

As we see them start down life's path on their own,
We remember the work in getting them grown.

Silver marks this day at last,
Has it really been so many years past?

In looking back on our love we can say,
We wouldn't have wanted it, any other way.

For forever young will our hearts be now,
As on that day, when we promised love's vow.

My Treasure

Treasuring you throws up questions to me. How could a single person hold all my envy. Is it a smile, a kiss, a voice, a touch. What could possible make me love you this much. Conclusions I come to just never seem right. I stummble on this question, could God shed some light? Could he throw back the curtains and answer my soul. Would he tell me your love is what makes me so whole. Would he say your my angel from the heavens above... Well if he didnt I'de know he's never known your love.

once fleet of foot
these paired feet two
no longer fly
and silver steps are measured
in minutes
as time whistles by
humming the same old tune
that touched us so
long, long ago
when only radios played our songs
and films reeled black and white
writing wild fantasies
of adventure and romance
into pubescent minds
sowing funflower seeds  
on virgin fields of dreams…

and fun we reaped
in tons and heaps
back when we were fleet of foot
dashing through days and dough
as though they would never end…

but end they did…

and as we swing into life’s
twilight zone
hands intertwined in a union
clinging to fleeting branches of our memory tree,
know that the die is cast
and though fleet feet never last

true love flies eternal….

     In the heat of July, 
While bringing in the hay, 
He gave her a baling wire ring, 
And this is what he had to say... 

     “Someday I’ll put a diamond, 
Here on your hand. 
A diamond pure and perfect, 
As sure as I’m your man. 

     But, you know, a diamond, 
It won’t ever shine, 
As long or as bright, 
As this love of yours and mine.” 

     So they saved for her diamond,  
By putting little bits away, 
Money for the diamond, 
He would buy for her one day. 

     But the money for her diamond, 
Fixed the tractor and bought a plow, 
And in the dead of winter, 
Paid the vet. bill for the cow. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Put the water to the barn, 
And paid the increased taxes, 
The county levied on the farm. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Paid the doctor in town, 
And when their daughters were all grown, 
It bought the wedding gowns. 

      It paid for the new roof, 
When the big wind came through. 
Then it it paid off the mortgage, 
Before it was due. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Was always well spent, 
She never even asked him, 
Just where the money went. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Helped them to survive, 
The money for her diamond, 
Kept their hopes and dreams alive. 

    Today it’s been sixty-three years, 
And the diamond is on her hand. 
But, as usual, in her pocket, 
Lies her original wedding band. 

     A twist of baling wire,  
Bent and covered up in rust, 
A symbol of the greatest of loves, 
His Promise and Her Trust.

Free Hearts

My sky is black and so is yours,
The cold sea rushes upon our shores.

I love you dear, we'll run away,
We'll run until our heart fades grey.

Their love is lost but ours is here,
We'll save our love throughout the years.

And as we confess our true love,
Our black sky stares from up above.

The sky is jealous of our pair,
She's jealous of the love we share.

But she cant hurt us, don't you see,
We'll run away until we're free.

Although miles apart, I am with you,
even on the day's you feel blue.
I think about you every day,
circumstances, stress, and loneliness cannot make me stray.
It's been 9 years and I don't regret anything I've learned,
cause you're so willing to give love in return.
We've had our times of tribulation and I see them as an experience,
the strength of our love can only be evidence.
A beautiful loving daughter we've created with an innocence unsurpassed,
her potential in life and everyone she encounters is so vast.

For she cannot be seen as anything else but a blessing......

All the places we've been and all we've ever done, I will never forget,
willing to break myself for you through tears, blood and sweat.
The day's to come I can foresee,
having an unbreakable bond, just you and me.
To live out our day's conquering every obstacle we face,
not living in fear, finding strength with each embrace.
I pray that the only thing that will separate us will be death,
from hence fourth my life will be for you until my last breath.

I love you so,,,, so much it makes me insane,
your mind, your heart, all that you are I wish to retain.

For it makes me who I am and what I do,
it's our anniversary my dear and this one is for you!

Rose and Roses

Tears rain down on the windows to your soul,
the pain you feel, punctures my heart with a hole.
No makeup today can paint you a better scene,
the silence you scream, leads me to fall at the feet of my queen.

Pleas of obscurity litter your honest expressions,
the inner keeper in me, asks myself the questions.
Is my love not strong enough to satisfy your world?
Am I not good enough to have you in my life as my girl?

‘Things haven’t been right in a long time’ is what you say,
speechless to act; I assumed you were always happy from day to day.
Shrugging and sighing seems to be your favourite habit now,
facing the uncertainty, I need to try to recapture my magic vow.

‘I promise I will always make you smile’,
I promised that to you, but I haven’t done that in a while.
You look at me with a sense of ‘I can do better’,
I need to change my ways, and address you properly without a letter.

Need to recreate the stillness you once had,
re-order my priorities and stop making you so mad.
Looking into your eyes, I hand you a glass of Rosé,
declaring my love, I hold you and point to  bouquet full vase.

‘Each of the Roses indicates what you mean to me’,
twelve symbols of affection for the beauty with the key.
Your face suddenly changes to picture of complete joy,
as I whisper in your ear,
‘I am now your man, after maturing from your boy’.

Another day can be added to your blessed years,
as morning comes dashing in to wake you at six;
bright sunrays can dry all tears and ease fears...
ponder over your life, nothing seems complex!

Achieving each dream takes a lot of planning,
although tough times may be coming or going;
believe that you will reach the peak of the mount... 
bow your head and pray, make every minute count!

Here on this day of this year
The clouds are gone and the sky is clear

This is your Day…

As the winds of joy rid you of fear
Hear them whisper in your ear:

This is your Day…

Feel the caress of the Waves
As they dance over sandy glades

This is your Day…

Let the northern Lights of the Starry night
Show you a world without pain or fright

This is your Day…

Should clouds return and Raindrops fall,
Let their softest words comfort you as they call: 

This is your Day…

As the setting sun bids you good night,
Turn around to see the moon's delight:

This was your Day… may your Night be as full of warmth and joy…

~*~20 And Counting~*~

I cant believe that it's been 20 days since i've seen my boyfriend 
And i've been so calm about it. 
I miss him so much. i miss his kisses. 
I miss his touch. 
He's the love of my life and
Someday i'll become his wife. 
Cant wait for him to come home fast.
I know that our love was mad to last.

There standing with a hill to view
Above a stream were just two
About little flowers, purple, white
Ever fading went the light
Evening air rustled the leaves
They stood close in the breeze
Her blue sapphires gleaming
His heart faster beating
The time was now
He took a bow
Her hand in his
The question is
Him to her and her to him
Love shines forever, never dim

Holes, Holes, Holes

If I could reach into your mind
And place the tumor into mine
I would not think twice of time
If that would save your life

I'd pull the dagger from your back
And clean your wound 
With my bare hands
If that should save your life

I'd share your name and paint you things
I wouldn't nag for diamond rings
We'd be a gas and sing..
If only you were alive

love's touch

the swans glided gracefully
making circles on the pond
the sun's luminous glow
a mirror reflection of their souls.

her heart skipped a beat
as her lips parted to smile
his arms wrapped her tightly
tender fingers graced her cheek.

he gently caressed the softness of her hair
his touch, a warmth she always adored
she clasped his hand in hers with care
the feeling electric; the way it had begun.

her hand stroked his lovingly
she beamed with pride from within
slowly she turned to gaze into his eyes
he was her heart, her joy, the love of her life.

he tucked her hair behind her ear
cupped her face in his hands
as he deeply & passionately
kissed her rosy, full lips.

they soaked in the moment
of love's words through touch
feeling the beautiful essence
they had created with love.

with nature as their witness
guarding their precious moment
they honoured their day
their anniversay; the way it had begun.

Your hand holding my hand

Your eyes locked into mine

Our lips slightly wet from our kisses

Your body singing my bodies song

Your heart beating in time with mine

Our minds thinking our same thought

Your mouth speaking my words

Your mine and I'll forever be yours

For Lorena & Carlos, 2008. May you have a happy long lasting marriage.

Vows of Love

Gentle heart heal me now
Hold me until the pain goes away
Kiss me until I am well again
And with you I'll always stay

You fill me with great joy
I am blessed to have you near
I only hope I can love you enough
Losing you is my greatest fear

I was so lost when I met you
I didn't think I would survive
You have helped me grow so much
You've given me a brand new life

It's amazing how we've made it
Through all the hurt and pain
It's hard to believe we've overcome it all
And love is what we stand to gain

Thank you for standing by my side
Even though i didn't deserve your love
Or your forgiveness or trust
It's more than I could ever dream of

I make it my solemn vow
to try and be the perfect wife
I'll do the best I possibly can
for all the days of my life.

Iz it real

Is it real?
How do you feel?
I feel -no i know its real
What the two of you have

Can it be true?
I feel - no, know its real
I know it can be true
The love I see in you two

How do you feel?
I feel - no know its true
That it doesn't matter what people think of you two

No one asked 
How they felt- or what they thought
Because it only matters to you two

Be happy 
Don't worry
Love is in no

~*~My Mother In-Law~*~

My mother in-law is a wonderful person.
She treats me good and tells me all about her son. 
She said that she hopes the best for us. 
That she hopes we last long and someday get married.
I love hearing her say that. It tells me that I have her approval. 
She even told me that the reason she tells me about her son 
is because she sees me like her daughter and I take that to the heart.

' do I love thee, let me count the ways.' 
                           - Shakespeare: Sonnet XLIII

He stops to buy her roses and a card
to mark their anniversary.
Strolling absent-mindedly he crosses
to the park and in his reveries he hears
two songbirds singing sweetly in the trees,
a melody that cheers his saddened soul.
He hurries to the nursing home to greet
his darling wife, the half that makes him whole.

He cannot let a day go e'er he sees
her smiling face, that smile of sweet
contentment that illuminates their souls 
and redefines their state of grace.
Living on their memories they chatter
like the songbirds, their conversation bright.
He tucks her in and wishes her goodnight,
'God bless, sleep tight, (don't let those bedbugs bite!')

We have had both gladness and tears along the way. I was so happy that you decided to stay. I want this to be the best night for you and me. This was a great idea for our anniversary. You are the epitome of beauty, style and grace. I’m so glad that you suggested this place. I’m in the mood for dancing. Do you want to give it a go? I want the band to play something nice and mellow. How about a sweet melody both you and I know. I will ask the boys if they can play “Moonglow”.

Finally a New Hope and Beginning

Finally a New Hope and Beginning
April 8, 2011 

The Finality of My Life
Is Completely a Relief and Free From All Strife
I traveled many a mile
08 to 11 It took a while
At first she was my best friend
I know in my heart it will last till the end
I feel as I should be in a gurney
For it has been such a long journey
Weeding them out
Because of finding  out all about
Some were shy 
I know not why
Most of them always wanted money
Why should I pay to be their honey
But this one just wants Bill
For with him her heart will completely fill
Full of passion and love 
Sent from heaven above
And soon we will be as one entity
Which will last through infinity
She is extremely so fine
My heart knows she is mine
We are completely entwined like a vine
And we both know it will last till the end of time

Look At Me Now

I remember the time when my life seemed bad
never would i smile i was always acting sad
no one could help me 
they didnt know what to do
cause every time they tried only sadness and anger grew
they tried to give me pills 
to outsmart my brain
but they dont seem to relize that only time 
could heal the pain
and little did they know i was dying more each day
but then i met you and you seemed to take it all away
i felt a different feeling one that i had never known
and for the first time in my life i  felt i wasnt alone
i didint know what to do you were stuck inside my head
it all just made me think that mabe not all love is dead
you opened up my eyes to look at life a different way
and not like all the rest you didnt push my love away
you picked the perfiect time i was almost out of hope
i was already on a chair hanging from a rope
you filled my heart with love as it layed dying on a shelf
and not only did you save me from death you saved me from myself
and to this day i can finally say that i know you really care
i hope we stay together to make this feeling last forever and enjoy the love we share

I'm Over The Moon

I never thought it would come so soon 
Trust me my darling I’m over the moon
It seemed so very far away
But now it is hear if only for a day

It seems like I have waited forever 
Would it arrive, I thought it would never
But it does, it has come around 
Left me dancing four feet, off the ground

Every year on this day, is really happy hooray
I really am lucky to be able to say
My world is much better for having your love
You may have been sent to me from above

So thank you for a most wonderful year
I look to next without any fear
Knowing I love each day a bit more
I love you completely of that please be sure

As for me it will start once again
The endless waiting for this one day of gain
The day that is always carved deep in my heart
The day that I married you my sweetheart

Last One Loving...

I got a call, I am to report for military duty in the morning..
I reluctantly tell my wife as she was doing her usual cleaning.

She covers her face with her hands and begins to cry.
I gathered her in my arms and told her I would be back by her side.

Holding my wife, I drifted off on the couch, listening to music.
She was singing and humming quietly to the songs and their lyrics.

She tells me she understands and shows her love and support.
Morning finally came, and she drove me to the airport.

We exchange vows again, and I kiss her tenderly..
She whispers that she will remember this moment blithely.

She received his letters, read and cherished every one of them.
Thinking of the times they were together and the essence of him.

A month went by and she tried every possible way to find her soldier.
She closed her pocket filled eyes and prayed he was out of danger.

Three months passed by without word of his well being.
Trying to stay positive but, in her heart was a dreadful feeling.

She felt so oppressed and worried her hands were trembling.
She was weak and weary, her gait was somewhat stumbling.

She hasn't slept, it seems~since he left.
She takes some sleeping pills and takes a long deep breath.

Couple of days go by and he "rolls" through the doors.
He looked at her paleness and begins to feel remorse.

His thoughts start to torment, right or wrong, was now confusing..
Tears fall from his weary face, his mind is loosing…

She deserves better, he tries to reason with himself.
Reaching, he loads the contents~placing the box back on a shelf......

My Broken Angel

When I see you, I see hope.
The hope of a soldier,
Fighting his way in a war,
Who wants nothing more than
Just to make peace, and to
Make it home.

When I see you, I see light.
It's the light of kindness.
But its buried underneath
Everything that's harmed you.
And it shines bright just for
The one you love most.

When I see you, I see strength.
Your strength overpowers all.
It comes for the pain you've
Ventured from, the scars that
Mark your skin. They've made
You stronger.

When I see you, I see inspiration.
With all you've witnessed and
Dealt with, how you can make it
Through is amazing. That solely
Helps me to remember that
I can go on with all this.

When I see you, I see a hero.
Like the one Marvel would make up.
Although you've been to Hell and back,
To the moon and Sun, you still have
Just one piece of you that
Gives you reason to stay.

When I see you, I see an angel.
You are glorious, magnificent,
Greater than anything I've seen.
You're sweet, loving, brave,
And you ask for very little
In return.

And that's why I love you.
You're wholesome, you've beaten
All odds, you don't judge, you are
Amazing. You are everything I could
Ever want and more, and the best part:
You are completely real.

It's True, I Love You

It’s True,  I Love You!

There's nothing as sweet
as how you make me feel complete.

Nothing is able to make me feel good
as only your love could.
There's nothing that can put a smile on my face
as well as your embrace.
There's nothing as beautiful as your eyes,
as I look in them, my love can't be disguised.
There's no one as special as you.
This I know to be true!
Yes, I Love You!

I Can't Explain Part 2

...I can't explain the secure feeling when you hold me and sleep I can promise that I love you ~ I can promise I won't creep I can't explain why you take over my heart You had me in the beginning ~ at the very start I can't show you that I love you, as much as I do I can promise you one thing though, what I speak is true I can't explain the amazement ~ when you catch me in a stare I can't explain to you how much it means just to know you care I don't know why I know know my babies will be yours I can't thank you enough, to fix my heart when it was torn I can't explain to you how much you mean Sometimes I take a step back and wonder, "am I in a dream?" To hold you close to me at night please know I want you to teach me to love you even more ~ please show I want to spend the rest of my life with you Please believe me when I say this, for it is 100% true I miss you even when your down a hall I hear random whistles and I look for your call For my father to love you, as he says he does It means so, so, much to me ~ it always was I can't explain the impact you have on my big heart Your everlasting love pierced through my world like a dart The love poison you poisoned me with will show But for now all I can say is that I love you ~ just so you know

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.

Loving You

As i've gotten to know you, I've fallen in love with you more than expected. I guess it's the 
way you are to me, I feel protected. The way you touch me so gentle and dear, it shows 
your affection, so perfectly clear. The way you enter my body and touch my soul. To me is 
this is something I had never known. There's so many things that you cause me to feel, so I 
know without a doubt that our love is real. When I see your face, I can't help but grin. On a 
scale from 1 to 5, I give you a ten. Your not just my man, your one of my best friends. I love 
you baby, and thats the truth, it drives me crazy to be so far from you. I want to be with you 
for the rest of my life, I want to have your kids and be your wife. But for right now all I can 
say is "I LOVE YOU" baby and I hope you feel the same way.

A night to never forget

Two lovers hand in hand
Walk in the sand
Enjoying the setting of the sun
And just like the night their fun has just begun,

Tonight is a night to remember
Stars dance across the tropical midnight sky setting the scene
On a beautiful romantic night in september
They danced on the beach as they had in her dream,

He told her to hold out her hands and close her eyes
He puts in her hands the surprise
A dozen roses with a card
She opened the card and read it aloud
"I never forget the little things  that you say,
I didn’t forget what day it is today,
I know you love to watch sunsets on the beach, stars, and roses,
I did all of this to say I love you and to have the happiest birthday that 
you’ll never forget."

Speechless and teary-eyed
He holds her close and she starts to cry
and she said 
"I’ll never forget this night until the day I die."

I Do

Admist the rocky mountains
And the natural springs 
Comes a better place I remembered things

under this lamp post is where
you first asked me to take 
your hand in marriage 

I remember you down on 
one knee and the snow was 
just starting to fall 

You looked like a little lost puppy 
looking for a way to speak I
took your hand and said yes

That was over twenty years ago
And to this date we still come back
to the Springs of Colorado and say I Do

Mom was a person of indisputable integrity...
teaching siblings the strict rules of equality.

A voice of tender words to remember her by...
a dazzling light invading my tenebrous sky.

Mother was more glittering and worthier than any gold...
with the purest faith and the wisdom of growing old.

I was very blessed to have had such a loving, nurturing mother...
her purity vanquished my vicissitude, and kept me from error.

She adored jewels, but she loved me more than them...
and she wore a long necklace of opulent elegance. 

I am very proud and glad to have inherited that spirit from the South... 
and reflecting on her virtuous life, it has given me strength and worth.

Darkness Vs Light

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.” I often wish to dwell in the light But there are always those useless excuses That allows me to lose insight But I always end up with these endless bruises “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” I try to disregard the hate burning inside But there are always those people who I don’t appreciate Sometimes I just want to cower and hide Away from the love that has transformed into impure hate But someone will come out to stand up for what is truly ours And, eventually love will prevail!

The Journey

If you look for the rainbow after the storm you will find
That the struggle is because you were blind
But when the scales are lifted you will see
That even in the midst of the storm you are free
And the rays of light become more brilliant each day
It becomes clearer that this dark place is not where you will stay
For the plans He has for you are so beautiful and real
That nothing has the power over your soul to steal
The peace and joy that is worthy for you to receive
If you just look towards the light you will begin to believe
That only He has lifted you out of that dreadful place
He lifted you up with the power of His grace
So now your journey begins with a tiny ray of hope
But it’s all you need, to see the scope 
Of the real picture painted before your eyes
A work of art that can be seen only by the wise
And how wise you’ve become because of the test
 You must pass before you can rest
But once you fight that fight you are so much stronger than before
You even begin to welcome more
So you can be refined like a diamond in the rough
Oh Lord, this journey seems so tough 
But you keep on searching for the love He promises to pour out to you
The clouds are clearing the skies look blue
And the sun is shining, shining so brilliantly upon your soul
That you start to feel strong, you will not fold
You’ll continue the journey forevermore
 Because His love has brought you out of the storm and onto the shore
So you lay so still as you look at all the blessings found in the beauty of His gifts
And suddenly the darkness shifts 
To light and hope and strength and love
And you know in your heart this can only come from the one above

Sweet Winter Fire

Shut in three days
howling wind whipping
power lines dangle

Ham and beans simmer 
atop the old wood heater.
a head start on tomorrow's hunger

four finally tired 
Children asleep in bunches
scattered around the warm barn

Mine and yours tumbled together. 
forgetting to be jealous
we know it can't last

Daylight spent carrying wood
and entertaining children
I am all out of games

But nights, heart to heart
we danced by the light of
our sweet winter fire

As I lie in your arms tonight I know
The love that we share can't be broke
Tried, True battered til the end
Baby, you're my best friend
A kiss from you is all it takes
And those three little words that you say
I don't know exactly where to begin
But baby you're my best friend
The world may pass us by 
But I know we'll be alright
As long as I have you here with me
And though some things will change
My love's gonna stay the same
Cause I'm living out my destiny
We might travel the world as far as we can go 
Or just settle down, and go with the flow
There ain't no telling where our lives might be spent
Just as long as you're my best friend.

The love of my life

          The love of my life, 
              is not the one that got away, 
              or is not the woman in my dreams,
              she is as real as you and me, 
              always there to give me advice,
              her heart is always pure and kind
              a little hard headed at times but i don't mind
              she is a very exellent mother and wife
               so she is not the one who got away
               she is not the woman in my dreams
               The love of my life
               is mine and I am happy to call her my wife

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

The value of a partner

(Heartily presented to Prince Charles
especialy on a wedding occasion)

When I met him in the market
He wasn’t feeling very well
Walking very slow and having a cough
When I started my conversation
I found: his heart was still burning
He said,’ what’s your meaning?
Do you need a partner?
I wasted my life for my children
When I was young
I had lost my wife
And never have second, Thought
Perhaps she will not care properly to my children
But in my olden days 
I found it: that was my main mistake
Not to having a partner for me
Why are you agreeing to have one?
When my children was child
I care for them
When they grown up
Never came back to see me
I failed to fight with my loneliness
A person cannot understand 
The value of a partner
It is a matter of understanding?
If a person is not able
To read the feelings of a heart
The beauty has no matter for him.

~*~Wanting A Baby~*~

He asked me to give him a baby
Which i have always dreamed of
When i do have that baby boy or baby girl
I'll know it will have been conceived with love
For 9 months of my life, while my baby is growing
They'll be a day and everyday after that my face will be glowing
I want my child to know she or he can tell my anything
No matter what it is I'm here for everything
He shows me that he cares for me with such a great deal
That's why i think we cant hide how we feel
The words that he says bring hope to my life
That's why I wouldn't mind being his wife.

The Locket

This seat, this view, the hot rising sun
Memories began, flooding her heart.

As she gazed out at the tranquil beach
She recalled their hopes, their dreams, their
first time in these seats.

They had walked this beach, laughing so silly
His smile, her giggle, making love in the

He sketched their initials with a bright
yellow straw
Covered her eyes, and asked for her hand.

He clasped a locket around her neck
Like a glimpse of heaven, a beautiful poem
My strength, my soul, the place I call home.

As he approached the table, she giggles, he
smiles, he clasps her hand, the locket, close.

We chose one another with hope in our heart
Like a glimpse of heaven, a beautiful poem

This locket is a token
Of our love from the start.

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,
Flowers on birthday,
Remembering date of first date,
Valentines Day flowers,
Special poem for her,
Asking for hand
Wedding day,
Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,
I love you!

Make Her Cry by Kenny Davis

Make Her Cry by Kenny Davis

I don’t want to make HER cry of frustration
Giving HER a feeling of constant irritation

I don’t want HER to cry from my unloving actions
For HER, me becoming an overwhelming distraction

Causing HER to steadily lose HER attraction
Giving HER reasons to have many angry reactions

I don’t want HER to cry because I fail to be HER crutch
Someone for HER to lean on when life becomes too much

I don’t want HER to cry because I fail to come home
In bed with someone else, leaving HER all alone

I want HER to cry from utter happiness
For when I hold HER in my arms, SHE feels truly blessed

I want HER to cry from when I show HER acts of love
A love much like the one that falls from above

I want HER to cry when SHE lies on my shoulder
To comfort and embrace, the way I know how to hold HER

For times, for HER, when the world becomes a little colder
SHE will trust me to love HER the way that I have told HER

I want HER to cry from knowing that I will always be there
Knowing that I will never fail to love, that I will always care

I want HER to cry for all of the right reasons
For our happiness together is only our blessing in due season

After millions of seconds,
every second seeming,
much longer than the other.
All we wanted was good news, 
all we wanted was you...

 A night with little excitement 
only listening to the music, 
and watching stars make lame jokes,
 my sister and I heard a ring,
only faint cause the phone was outside.

Praying that everything was all right
we only wanted you safe,
we hear a sob from my mom.
As the moment my life fell apart
the good news never came.
You ran,
you jumped,
you swam, 
you quit.
I don't understand.

We still haven't stopped asking questions,
Why you? Why us? Why then?
Those questions will never be answered.
It's been almost five years

When you left you took a part of us with you,
My mom says hello, 
Can you say hello to Ashley for me? 
I hope you take her camping, and watch the stars at in the sky.
I hope everything's alright.

I know your dad came to join you,
Does it make you happy when people join you,
maybe that's what was going through my sisters mind,
maybe we all miss you more than you'd expect

Ever since you've been gone,
there has been a silence,
never questioned cause we don't want to face the truth
I wonder if you had more time if you wouldn't have done it,
do you regret it, or do you like the silence in the clouds.

We will never understand why you ran.
Life hasn't been the same since,
it's gone done hill from there,
you will always be in my thoughts.

As the days roll on by,
and turn into years
Your heart has stood by me,
through laughter and tears
My heart just explodes,
when I think of you
With love, light and wisdom,
you brighten my world
Your honor and integrity,
inspire me to soar,
Through a lifetime of happiness,
I could not want for more

Come Away with Me

Come away with me…
to a place that’s safe and warm,
where love abounds and none can harm;
to a place where clear blue waters meet hot white sand,
where we can stroll together forever, hand-in-hand.

Come away with me…
to a place where dreams take flight,
and they don’t disappear with the night;
to a place where crashing waves serenade 
lovers lying in a hammock in the shade.

Come away with me…
to a place where we can be free,
where you can be you, and I can be me;
to a place of dancing in the rain,
where we can leave behind all the world’s pain.

Come away with me…
to a place where our bodies become one,
on a blanket under the stars or under the sun;
to a place of no secrets, no regrets,
where forgiveness lives and hurt forgets.

Come away with me…
to a place where bodies entangle in passion’s embrace,
where gazes linger and wild hearts race;
to a place of ecstasy, joy and peace,
where fireworks explode, oh sweet release!

Come away with me…
where no one else can be,
a place reserved for just you and me.
Just hold me tight, get lost in a kiss;
for in that moment is where this place exists.

~*~My Baby Boi~*~

My baby boi is my heart and soul.
He took me in his arms and never let me go.
He's the sweetest guy I've ever met.
He's someone and something I will never regret.
He's showed me the world, Everything and more.
When god closed a window, He opened a door.
Since the first day we met, I felt he was the one.
The one i wanted to see right after the sun.
First thing to see when I wake up, Last thing when I go to bed.
He's my boyfriend, My lover, He's my best friend.

My Vow, Love Always & Forever

Love Always & Forever, 

for some that meant never, 

wondering if you'd ever stay together with this same person...

Cuz forever is a long time, and it all depends on 

whether or not your truly in love with this person 

Truly devoted to this person, willing to give so much of yourself

to another individual, is a dedication more intense and important than any other.

It's right up there in the same category as being a mother.

All I need to know is that your ready and willing to give us a shot

I'm not talking loving me for a day, a week, a month, I'm talking always and forever

A lifetime if you will, to be devoted to one another, to honor, trust one another

yes to love another as much as you love yourself.

For richer, for poorer, for better or worst health

I want to make this commitment to you more than anything else

I want you to respond by saying, "I do"

I don't want to say these words to anyone else

you're the only one I choose.

I'm making this pledge to honor, respect & cherish you and only you

As we hold hands, look into each others eyes and say our 'I do's'

Were making the promise to one another, saying...

"Always & Forever, I Will Love You"

~*~Our First Encounter~*~

The first day I meet you, I felt
we connected and I could tell you
felt it too. From the first word
you said to me, to the first dance,
to the first kiss, I felt something
special between us. I guess you
could say I was right because
I meet you on July 1st and now 
its august 17th and your still
here with me and I hope your
always by my side if ever I need
your support.

It was a cool afternoon when I went to see you.
when I got to your door, the sky was still blue.
no rain in sight that I could see.
I rung your bell and there you were waiting for me.
we were on the couch watching t.v.
that when I noticed you were looking at me.
you kissed my forehead and then my lips.
you looked at me then grabbed my hips.
you picked me up the sat me on you.
I could see how in love I was with you.
then things got interesting and we went to your room.
the I wasn't in gloom.
we laid on your bed then started to kiss. 
never thought it would have ended at this.
you said you love me and I said I loved you too.
I guess you could tell what I felt for you.
I hope you'll feel the same way if I choose to say no.
or if I let you do it, would you think I'm a hoe?
if anything does happen its cause I feel your love.
I hope you'll love me forever and always and all of the above.
tu quiere un chi chi
y te lo dare
si tu me promete
que siempre me amare.
I'll love you for always and hope you feel the same.
and hope your love for me will always remain.

Thank You

On this day 12 years ago- I said yes to a man I knew would love me through and through.
   This one is for you

Destiny, its just another word for me and you.
Life is funny how it plays you, bringing together strangers like you and me.
It was not love at first sight, but more like a curiousity I wanted to bite.
The first years were the worst, I was following my sometimes rocky destiny.
You were there holding me tight and wiping my tears without a fight.
Your love never faultered or failed, never once did you bail.
Good times and bad we have had it all, and your still here standing tall.
My love for you has fully bloomed, more then I thought I could ever give.
Destiny is what I say,  for it seems to me we were always ment to be.
Thanks to the powers that be for bringing you to love me.
Thanks to my husban for twleve years of loving, always and forever.

~*~He Called~*~

OMG! You don't know how happy i am. 
I was sitting down watching TV when the phone rang.
I walked to the caller ID and guess what number I saw.
It was a number with an area code of (809), 
which is the area code of Santo Domingo (DR). 
I picked up the phone and on the other side, a sweet voice said,
"Hey baby, What you doing?" My heart literally jumped out of my chest. 
To hear his voice again was just so amazing. 
I can't explain the words of how I felt. It was just so amazing. 
I love him so much and I miss him a lot.
I'm just so happy he called.
He called!!!!!

Pearls Of Love!

Pearls of wisdom ever so faint...
Erodes at one's heart like acid to paint.

Tender and softly,i paint my encircled loved heart...
Never to never to end and depart!

Weight so weighted onto shoulders so broad...
Imparting my lips as intended as awed!

Feelings traverses my universe so wide...
To breathe you in and at my side.

Your bosom's a'fronted in me,as near...
For you are my one,so tender and Dear!

Life is so empty without you at my side...
Of this fact,i intend,never to hide!

Blessed by you as part of my heart...
My love for you,shall never part!

Life so zestful,as ever inside...
Made me the happiest,when you became my bride!

My Other Half

My heart flutters when you’re around.
My eyes gleam when you tell me you love me.
Our love is strong.
It is whole.
My soul is complete.
You fill my other half.
When your body clashes against mine,
My body becomes agitated for more,
With only the slightest touch.
You know me inside and out,
And I love you for that.
You don’t cause my tears,
You scare them away,
The moment you hold me.
Tell me everything’s alright,
Scare my tears away.
Tell me you love me forever and for always.
Cause my heart to flutter,
And my eyes to gleam.
Then and only then,
My pain will end,
So that my soul will be complete.

For my dear wife

For my dear wife,
On this Usual Day,
I write you this poem,
In my own special way.

I wanted to tell you,
In words of my own,
You're the most precious person,
That I've ever known.

You're the prettiest Girl,
Than any I've seen,
Your body Is flawless,
So Slender and lean.

Your eyes Have that sparkle,
That I can't live without,
One day without them,
And I'd die theres no doubt.

And I just lose control,
When I glance at your hair,
That long beautiful stunning hair,
So perfect and rare.

You're the most caring person,
That I've ever met,
There's no one like you,
And I love you so much.

So hold me as close,
As you possibly can,
Cause now and forever,
I am your man.

I know I love you because
all I think and dream about
is you and me being together.

Not For Me

Your eyes don't look at me
Your lips don't speak my name
Your smile isn't meant for me
Your feelings aren't the same

Your touch won't caress me
Your memory will forget me
Your soul wont care for me
Your thoughts aren't of me

Your future isn't with me
Your heart doesn't beat for me
Your breath won't be because of me
And your love was never meant for me

You are my addiction
my only drug of choice
Look at my bloodshot eyes
you can hear it in my voice

Every time you get near me
my veins rush with adrenaline
You make my body sweat
you leave me with confusion

But when you kiss my lips
you send shivers down my spine
You taste so sweet to me
your body’s so divine

You grip my back
as your passion comes thru
Girl you’re my addiction
I don’t know what to do

I feel the rush of love
when we are alone
When we are together
or on the telephone

I cant get enough of you
your always in my head
From the moment I wake up
till the time I go to bed

I get dreams of you
pleasing me in so many ways
But then I wake up
your scent is all that stays

You’re my addiction
you have me trembling for more
The same way I make you shake
lets do this some more

You give me urges I never had before
deep within my soul
You make me shiver and shake
when I’m not even cold

You bring me to my knees 
and make me yearn for more
You’re my only drug of choice
you’re the only one I adore

You give me pain that I enjoy
you are my only baby
You arouse me in so many way
you know how to drive me crazy

I want you and I need you
baby I want to feed on you
Without you in my life 
I wouldn’t know what to do

You’re my addiction  you keep me alive
thru thick and thin
You have helped me thru so much
where do I begin

Look into my soul 
so much burns deep within me
My heart pumps for baby
I’m jonzin for you mami

Ven aqui te necesito
my urge is about to explode
You’re the only one I see in my cross hairs
the only one I want to hold

Let me ignite you
the same way you ignite me
Let me drink you drop by drop
cum baby cum with me

You’re my drug of choice
my addiction that is pure
Come here mami
show me how your pure

What gave them the Right

On this September day
From the air they came
Cowards in flight
For what to gain
Airliners hijacked
For their pathetic cause
The praise they choose
Were religious flaws
To take ones life
Is not their write
No where is it written
Or hidden from sight
A phrase i now mention
Is " The Scum of the Earth "
This chosen few
Are just not worth
Heroes and martyrs
Are they supposed to be
What gave them the right
To attack, the land of the free
What do we do
In the years ahead
Do we sit back and watch
As they instigate dread
The excuse we call oil
Is now in the past
For our soldiers will continue
To be maimed or lost
Can you imagine our countries
As they attacked on mass
The world needs democracy
We are in it, to the last

Our Silver Wedding Anniversary

Twenty five years ago today,
A young man woke on his wedding day.
As he lay there he thought of the good times to come,
Then a knock on his door, cup of tea from his mum.
Well son she said, the day has arrived,
Very soon you shall have your wife by your side.
He thought for a while at the words she just said,
Your wife by your side, went round in his head.
A smile then appeared across his face,
You’re right mum he said, I really can’t wait.
When at the church the nerves they took hold,
The best man gave a reassuring word.
The organ music changed its tune; the vicar gave a nod,
A couple that were so in love made vows in front of god.
That was twenty five years ago to this very day,
The young man that was me, 
The beautiful vision that stood by my side,
Wearing white old borrowed and blue.
Is the beautiful vision that is by my side still,
The one and only you!

For Marie with all my love, Mark

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.

~*~What Can I Say?~*~

What can i say about the man that I love?
Is he sweet? Is he caring? Well, he's all of the above.
Right now he's away from me but its no big deal.
He'll be back soon enough and then my wounds will heal.
I'm really sad at this moment but I'll be fine.
He'll be home soon in no time.
He told me to listen to "our song" while he's away
Until he's back that song will always play.

My Dearest Ellen

Tomorrow is uncertain as the hour,
Whilst each minute pulses borrowed time,
And breathes, seconds closer to my rest,
I praise thy living love, nestled in my breast.

Attend, knells a distant wistful tolling;
Forsooth, only thy love can disavow,
So phantoms lose their ghostly grasp on me,
To lend a moment, nay eternity;

And if time becomes a gauzy mist, 
Upon a hearkened final fading beat;
Remember all you were to me that hour,
Blooms more beautiful, than any flower.

My love, my love, a moment shall I dream,
Til midst the stars, I reminisce agleam.

  Of times long past, we think back now . . .
  Those youthful days, before we made our vow.
  You raced through my being like no other,
  And made me fall in love with you.

  Our wedding day brought thrills anew . . .
  Those anticipated hours of being united with you.
  We held each other for the very first time,
  As man and wife, we now were.

  As we settled down together we had more joys . . .
  Girls for you, and then a boy.
  I felt your loving touch again,  
  As I held each one for the first time.

  Those were the days of our trials and strife . . .
  We had to work hard, as husband and wife.
  Our children grew tall in those days,
  Forever being molded by our love for each other.

  Now they have families of their own to raise . . .
  We watch their children grow with a grandparents' gaze.
  Oure lifetime of love has proven its worth,
  In the smiles of our children's children.

  The Lord has blessed us with these years of old . . .
  Yes, they truly are years of gold.
  Today, as we look back on them I realize,
  That each day, you made me fall in love with you.

~*~The Love I Have For Him~*~

My love for him grows stronger and stronger every and all days
And more and more with every word he says
We can't help what we feel for each other
He’s meet my mom, my aunt, most of my family, even my brother
The only person in my family that he hasn't met is my dad
But to tell you the truth, I'm not all that sad
He wasn't here for my graduation, prom or my first days of school
To me, my mothers my mom and dad, and that's pretty cool
He hasn't even left yet and I miss him so much
Want to feel him next to me want to feel his touch
Hope he comes back soon, back by my side
Me and him, it feels like a joyride

Little song in my heart
A tuneful melody,
Sings of love not lost 
But gone to somewhere else instead,
Sings not of our loss,
Or of the tears we shed,
But of a tiny light that shone
And guided us so well,
That grief feels inappropriate, 
It is praise we should give now.

I'm so thankful that I found you
You're My Love, My Life, And My Heart Too
You asked me something that I hold dear
Assuring me that you'll always be here
I've said Yes because I know in my heart
That we will never part
You're the best thing that has ever happened to me
I know that we were meant to be
these are the reasons why I'm thankful. 
thankful for you

I Love You

There you were standing at my door
I was so nervous but excited at the same time
Sitting there talking to you, getting to know you
You were funny, smart and gentle
In a short time I realized that I wanted to be near you all the time

As the months and years flew by you were my best friend
I knew I loved you and always would
Then the night came when you put that little ring on my finger
You told me that you loved me and wanted me forever

Three months after pledging our love we were going to be a family
A dream come true for the both of us
Then before I knew it our son was born
He brought us so much joy
Life just wouldn’t be the same without him

Four years have gone by since then
It has been far from easy
We have had our share of challenges
Yet through it all our love has concurred all
Our love is stronger then ever

Now after five years of marriage
We will soon be completing our family
Another bond for us to share
Our love is unbreakable

Tonight, our fifth wedding anniversary
I look at you and all I see is love
I know that I will hold you in my heart and soul forever
I will love you now and always
I will love you till I take my last breath

   How we laughed at life's DramA.

Velvet lies dripped from your tongue..
   enticing a confession of my Love..
    I prayed that we never parT.

Enchanted by your smile..
   infatuated by your embrace..
   I gave to you my lovE

How could you..
  You knew what my heart felt..
   I loved you so welL.

Affection dead and buried..
  remorse holds my hand..
  my trust just an  empty echO.

Tenderness has deserted me..
   callousness floods my soul..
   I would have your heart on a shiV.

Emotionless I see the real you..
    my devotion dead..vengeance flickers
    I shower you with hatE!

happily ever after

Every time I look at you my feelings run deep. 

Your eyes they speak to me with words I will keep

They tell me that we will always be together

Happily ever after now and forever.

Your tender loving kisses makes my heart want to sing

A song of love from deep inside, to me your everything

And each night I ask the Lord for one more day

Just so I can have the chance to say

Happily ever after like Mom and Dad

Heaven is something we've always had

Our love is a precious thing one of a kind

Kept safe within our hearts for us to find

That happily ever after we will stand.

Happily ever after hearts hand in hand

And oh sweet angel of mine

Without you I am not alive

For you are the only light I seeeeeeee 

And through all of the ups and all the downs 

With all of the love we have found

I will build my home with you and live anywhere

Happily ever after now and forever

happy anniversary eddie my husband i love you more everyday. this poem i also 
made a song out of it too eddie just for you.

Is This A Dream

You have shown me what it is like to be loved,
Given me a thousand and one more reasons to smile,
You are always so caring, honest and sweet,
I hop this lasts for a long, long while.

I want to treasure our time together as a happy memory,
To remember how I feel when I am in your arms,
Your touch so warm and kisses so sweet,
I think I fell for your smile and charms.

We have been together; for what feels like forever,
I'd try if I could to stop time from ticking away so fast, 
I'd store away your kisses and remember the endless love,
Is this a dream I'm living? Will this really last?

You and I

the night was cool and dark was the sky
we were alone just you and I
our thoughts filled the  room and love filled the sky
at one point I thought  I was going to cry
I'll always thank God for you and I
 was overwhelmed at the thoughts of having you
someone to love me, someone I could run to
after all we been through I'd never want to lose you
you are my pride and joy someone I could call mine
even when I'm upset, you made sure we go out an dine
when the nights were over I'd always look up at the sky
and I always thank God for you and I
 close my eyes and begin to pray
that the love we share will always be this way
the things you do, the things you say
will make me want you more each day
as the morning sun rise so do I
I'll begin to think about you and I...

~*~He Called Part 2~*~

I was sitting upstairs with my aunt watching "Human Trafficking" when it happened.
It was almost 11PM, when my cell phone rang.
I looked at the phone and the caller ID read "My Baby Cell". 
I was thinking "What’s Wrong With Me? He Can’t Be Calling My Cell." 
I picked up the phone and he said "Ima call the house" and i said "o.k." 
I Went downstairs and talked to him over the phone.
He was so sweet. He told me once again that when he comes back from DR,
he's going to marry me, and that just made my day. 
He loves me and I love him. That's what matters.

~*~My Relationship~*~

We've only been going out
for like a month
but to me, it seems like forever
you might say I'm crazy cause
of the way I speak about him
but what you don't see is how
happy he makes me. That's what
everyone around me doesn't understand
or see. He doesn't have to
have money or buy me nice things.
I love him for him and he
loves me for me.

~*~ He's My One And Only! ~*~

I meet this boy with these gorgeous eyes. 
He spoke to me with such a sweet voice. 
Since the day I meet him, he's been all I can think about. 
I think about him when I wake up, through out the whole day, and he's the last thing I 
think about when I go to sleep. 
He's what i dream and always have dreamed about. 
He has everything in a man that I have always wanted.
He's sweet, caring, compassionate, and a great boyfriend.
He tells me all the time how much he loves me and what the future holds for us both. 
He tells me things no other boyfriend has EVER told me. 
He speaks to my heart. He know's everything about me.
He's the love of my life and my soul mate. But answer me this?
How can you tell when someone's your soul mate? How can you really tell?
Can you see it in there eyes? The way they speak to you? The way there touch feels? 
Tell me how do you really know? The way i can tell is, by the way he speaks and looks at 
me. It's just something about him that makes me feel comfortable around him. Never have 
any doubts to be with him or around him. He makes me feel safe and that he'll always be 
there to protect me. Always be there to save me. He's my one and only and always will be.

Without You

Before I met you my life wasn’t complete
There was always something empty inside
An acing sadness that needed to be full-filled
I felt a yarning to hold someone forever

Then one day without even looking there you were
You were in my life and everything was so simple
You were honest and caring
Carefree and not worried about showing me what you felt

Time went by and our love grew stronger
With every tender touch and every kiss
I knew I wanted you forever
No matter what I never wanted to you go

Now after all this time I love you more then ever
We have overcome some big challenges over time
There were tears of pain and joy
Our love has stood the test of time

Tonight is a special night for us
A night to hold in our hearts and our minds forever
An evening I wish would never end
A moment to freeze in time

As I hold you and look into your eyes
I hope you realize how much I love you
How much I need you in my life
Most of all that I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you.

Footprints Of Love

There she lies in the sofa
Reading a novel
My lovely princess
Born on a Valentine’s Day
Fair she was and cute
Delicate and soft
She exuded wisdom
She portrayed love
My Valentine pal
I remember her smiles now
Her solemn kisses
She lived a life to her fill
As I cast my mind back
To the past Val seasons 
I spent with her
Good thoughts re-echo 
In my mind
We walked for miles
We sat close to each other 
Beside the shore
We admired God’s unique creation
The words she spoke 
On her twenty-fifth birthday
Sounded so true to me
“Darling, you really mean so much
 To me
 Your unfailing care surpasses 
 My imagination
 Your daring strength 
  Has brought us thus far
 You kept our secrets
  You shared them 
   With no one else
   You kept me 
    As a priceless Jewel
You carried me gently 
In your hands”
Today marks 
The fifth anniversary 
Of the day 
We exchanged 
Our espousal vows
My heart is full of joy
As I ponder over these things.

The Moon

                  The Moon 

 When I look up to the face on the moon, I wonder and hope your thinking of me too. 
I miss you with all my heart. 
I hope you miss me too. 
Nathaniel means your a gift from god, well in my heart your a gift from the moon. 
Shining down upon my night to light it up when it's black. 
Beaming down to the ground as i stand there in the dewy field. 
You never steer my wrong, you never take me to a wrong path, and your sweet love takes me through all that is thrown at me. 
The moon is what I stair at every night. 
Thinking and hoping you will still shine your light on me. 
Nathaniel I love you and someday hope to do half of what you've done for me.

I love Her

I love her more than words can say
And I know nothing will get in our way
I love her more than anything in the world
And I know she’s a blessing from the lord
I love her more than I can express
And could never love her any less
I love her more than anyone knows
And I know things will never get too low
Because I love her more than anything.

~*~My Man~*~

I can't believe this has happen, I can't believe this is true. I found someone 
special and that person turned out to be you.
Now we've been together for awhile and I have fallen in love with you and its 
making me feel like a child.
It takes me back to when I was young to when I found my first love.
You made me feel alive again; you fixed my broken heart that was broken by that 
guy who I now call my friend.
You're so handsome, so honest and so true. Falling in love with you had made 
me decide I would do anything to be with you.
I love you so much it hurts not seeing you but I believe in faith, love and anything 
that would make my wish come true.
I want you to stay with me because I want our love to last, I want to look towards 
the future and forget what was hunting us in the past.
You came into my life like a breath of fresh air I was so happy because you made 
all my bad thoughts disappear.
Damn you’re so handsome I still can't believe that you're real. You made my life 
much easier the day that you said you loved me.
Having you in my life is the best feeling there is because you’re my man, my love, 
my heart and the one I think I am meant to be with.
I cried for you and I am not afraid to say I did because that’s what my love for you, 
is not hiding what I truly feel within.
How can you be so perfect, so wonderful and there are so many words I can't 
even explain it.
I love you baby more than anything in this world, the day I told you I loved you I 
that you were meant to be my man. My life has changed completely and it's for 
the best and not for the worst thanks to you the dream about being in love with 
someone has come true. I want to be with you more than life its self has finally 
came through. 
I love you baby I truly do let this be the poem, which I explain how much I Love 
being with you.

tangled little hearts

My hope for old
when floors are cold
we lay with no regret

like blowing trees
arms and knees 
tangled tide of sweat

when all would think
the sun has drank
all passion from the breast

our secret soul
still sexual
put weary bones to test

grandchildren laugh
we take a bath
and tell them not to listen

they’ll roll their eyes
and act surprised
when wrinkled folks are kiss’n

you’ll tease my lips
with naughty nips
and tell me to be slow

my heart would blast
could be the last
what better way to go

to meet the end
two old friends
that know each hidden part

who’ve loved a life
man and wife
with tangled little hearts

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.

Mates for Life and Forever After

Once upon a waning moon
What only nature knew would happen soon
A silent union had taken place
It all started with one embrace
A kiss began the life long quest
Two alphas face no bigger test
The wolves have waited far too long
And from their hearts, love spilled its song
A perfect harmony, composed by fate
Together forever, life long mates
The maker of the Alphess, her efforts in vane
Wants the Alpha gone, as long as she reigns
But the Alphess is strong and fiercely fights back
Her maker can only return the attack
The battle is constant and nearing no end
A possible scar that the maker can’t mend
A decision comes forth, it has to be done
A new pack to be made, and the alphas are one
In the den of the maker, a decree was announced
The union of the alphas indefinitely pronounced
Undying love between life long mates
A very welcome twist of fate

The Almond's anniversary of 50 years
You truly deserve alot of cheers
You're very special and so dear
So these words that come from my heart are very sincere
As you celebrate 50 years of pure and genuine love
You're really angels sent from above
What you both constantly share
There's nothing that can compare
Your bond is so unique and rare
You both over came the storms and the rain
You so often shared each others pain
Love,care,and concern for everyone you share
So constantly showing others how much you care
I wish you both the best and many more
And Jesus continues to bless you as he done so many times before.

Fortieth Anniversary Salute

Friends and family have come together on this very special day,
To join in a celebration of love that has forever stayed!
Forty years ago, Danny took Opal's hand into his,
	And made a commitment to in love to forever be true,
A ceremoney was held in front of God and family
	Vows were made, two -- said "I do"
It was a love meant to last for all eternity!
		Life began anew!
In this world we live in today it isn't easy for love to survive,
You are an inspiration to us all, through all the trials and tribulations
	You let God be your guide!
		Love is forever true!
You have shared a lifetime together, made memories along the way,
	Memories that you shall treasure forever!
		Memories to forever stay!
You started out as two, soon your family grew,
	Two were joined by four -- Children in which to adore!
You watehed them grow with each new day, knowing one day,
	They would go their seperate ways.
You can take pride in knowing, the love you have built is forever growing!
	In the lives of your children, as well as in the lives of your grandchildren.
As we have all joined together today, I write this poem as my way to say,
	Congratulations on a lifetime accomplishment.
May the love that the two of you share, continue to be an inspiration to all those who

Meant To Be

It was never meant to occur,
We really weren’t meant to be.
To me, it’s still not a blur,
Of everything that happened and
What we became and what we were.

Maybe in another life we’ll meet again,
Hold onto each other and be happy forever.
This “meant to be” I can’t ascertain,
Because you aren’t here with me,
And these feelings still remain.

All that could have been before
Still hasn’t happened.
This aching grows each day more and more,
To be with you and never let go,
But you have long ago closed the door.

Why can’t I just put you in the past?
Just forget about you and move on,
Because it all went by so fast.
I guess we were meant for each other,
We just weren’t meant to last.

Proving My Love

If ask to prove my love to you.... Wow, that would be tough. 
Being with you, holding you, just never seems to be enough.
I'de spend some time with a wizard if I thought magic was enough to bare.
I'de cast a spell with cupids arrow just to show you how much I care.
I'de climb the highest mountain top just to leap into your loving arms.
I'de release my soul just to bring you home and feel your mystical charms.
I'de slay a thousand dragons and fight a thousand kings, if at the end of my distress your love is what it brings.
I dont know if the time is right, or if I am the man you always dreamed me to be...
The only proof that I can offer you is WILL YOU MARRY ME.

~*~ How He Makes Me Feel! ~*~

You could say that I fall in love to easily,
but that’s not true if I find someone I like and 
they don’t treat me right, I can’t stay with them. 
I don’t deserve to be hurt, but on the other hand, 
the one I’m with right now makes me feel like I’m on top of the world. 
He’s so sweet and kind that I know down in my heart that he’ll 
always be there for me. He treats me as if I were his princess, 
his queen. Which I will always be. Whenever he needs me,
 he knows that he can count on me. I’m only a phone call away 
and if anything happens and I need him, I know that he’s there for me too.

The Wonder of Your Love

Take my emotions from me and I shall forever be lifeless.
Hearing your heartbeat fills my loneliness, stays my fright.
Emotional venues are in my spirit, a true wonder of my life.

We have shared friendship, tenderness, passion, and heartache.
Only time will develop the envelope, of our intimacy combined.
Never take for granted our love and indifferences in our lives.
Death may take our mortal fervor our bond will remain evermore.
Excitements we share are beyond the sensual feelings we adore.
Relishing each second, and minutes of the years, months, days,

Only my heart can show the true devotion that you give so free.
From my touch, kisses, words I write you each year, you will know.

Yearning to hold and caress every part of your fundamental nature.
Our mature embodiment will guide us through true devotion.
Unanswered emotions will drive us to compete for satisfaction.
Reveling outwardly, securing the wonder of your love for me.

Let your soul know that I shall completely design my life for you.
Our love shall not be overthrown by any jury or court in this land.
Victory is yours, for the attorney of conviction, is unobjectionable.
Each year of my confinement to your love will be truly a wonder.

Five for five

Lonely burgundy bag.

Sits so painless, because you don't know.

And you sit so safely, while a stretch expires.

To last in this bag, lay but a white casket from the inside.

Laced in burgundy, holds a peaceful five.

Support across this stretch.

Will you make it to the one you're meant.

Only in hopes, tired hands collapse at a different hour they're set to produce.

Burgundy bag holds but a word.

A promise, a guarantee, that has built and worked itself for five.

And one, do you believe it. 

Everything done to support across the stretch.

Everything that laces a casket holding five.

If not… if so.

I can't but only cast away, in a fold of regret.

Not to regret for doing, but losing.

Miss me. 

To lay in my own, but be splattered on a wall, or hanging from a ceiling.

Or bleeding lifelessly at the end of a reckoning.

So peacefully expired because the absence was intolerable.

If this being seizes to exist, never should the lonely burgundy bag.

That holds my casket of five. 

My word, my promise, my guarantee... my faithfulness.

Only meant for you, across a stretch of expiration.

Five for five… but the absence was intolerable.

Feburary is the nicest time of the year,
because you celebrate love and happy tears,
like birthdays and special annversity, 
you find out who love you alot,
or you have a bad ending,
it also a start of something new, 
then you find out things that are true,
you start to look different as you go,
but Feburary is not over,
just sit back and enjoy the show,
and have a nice Feburary,  
and take it slow.

20 year anniversary a very special celebration
Is the reason for this dedication
And I truly hope you have many more 
By showing everyone what you have in store
With each one being better than before
Alot of years together still going strong
You all have enough faith to know where you belong
And there's something so unique in your every song
Yes it's something so special about today
And for all your hard work no-one can ever repay
After all this time you're still here to stay.

I'm so happy...
yet so torn apart...
my boyfriend is the best thing 
that could have ever happened to me
but i cant share my happiness with
my best friend cause my happiness would
turn into betrayal and sorrow.
I've chosen not to tell her cause 
I'm afraid of what she might think
or what she might say. i hope that 
somewhere in the future if i do
tell her she will find it in her
heart to be happy for me and
always be there when I'm in need.

30 years together today
Sure does not seem that long
But time flies when your having fun
Its not always roses and sunshine
I guess its what you make it , that counts
You sometimes struggle with obstacles
that get in your way
Together you greet the challenges of a marriage
The tumbles you meet get easier together
Times are sometimes rough , but being a family
helps out
You look to the positive end of the stick and you survive
Happy 30 th anniversary to my husband 
Let's make it last some more years

~*~Once Upon A Time~*~

Once upon a time, there was this girl with very long hair,
had to wash it and comb it, to always have it there.
One day she meet a boy with gorgeous green eyes,
better then all the other guys.
They looked at each other and could feel something sweet,
she felt so in love, her heart skipped a beat.
He asked her to dance and placed out his hand,
she accepted his offer and danced to the band.
They danced the whole night, as if no one was there, 
I guess once upon a time can happen to anyone, anywhere.

My promise to you

When you are sad, I will dry your tears
When you are scared, I will comfort your fears
When you need love, my heart I will share
When you are sick, for you I will care

You will feel my love when we are apart
Knowing that nothing will change my heart
When you are worried, I will give you hope
When you are confused, I will help you cope

When you are lost, and can’t see the light
My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright
This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end
For you above all are my wife and best friend

These words I have written, speak of my love for you
From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true
God has blessed me, and with your hand in mine
Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine

Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows,
I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows
Happy in marriage, honor and love
blessed in unity by God above

During our marraige we have experienced so many good times.
We have had our share of bad times too.
But we always pulled our love together and pulled ourselves out of every situation 
that we may come upon.
We have become stronger in our love for each other and we see each other 
through both our down moments in life.
Marraige is loving each other for whom we are.
No one is perfect.
Everyone has their own faults as you do  yours and i do mine.
But no matter what we both know that our love is real and we do whatever is 
needed to continue our life together as one.

Memorial Day

Gorgeous day!  Wrapped with warm weather,
quietude in surroundings early this morning;
roads are clear; driving isn’t a problem at all,
there’s no rush and one freely takes his time.

Invitations from friends and other relations
a cookout in the yard or dining in a restaurant;
a common tradition to American people,
a wonderful experience, a day to remember.

Our major print, news and TV networks,
show varied events, places, and peoples;
with distinctive features of the celebration
that trace back history and meaning to recall.

As singularly punctuated with solemnity
those veterans in the army and other dignitaries,
along with the president of this beautiful country,
America: the land of free, unity and diversity.

Names engraved in the annals of history
are those heroes who served in this country,
they offered their lives for love and loyalty,
indisputably, heroic giants of the century.

Across the years, memories of the past
continue to serve as a treasure trove,
a wellspring of thought and inspiration;
indeed, a living legacy worthy of imitation.

Kudos and more power to these people
though they’re all gone into the silent land
their spirit, mem’ry and legacy to everyone
unites the whole nation for love and remembrance.

Our Anniversary

The day that I met you,
I knew right then.
There would never be another,
never again.
My body is held captive,
but my heart is free.
Just knowing that I have you,
and that you love me.
The day you said “ I do”,
I was blessed from above.
You make my life so happy,
and so filled with Love.
Your beautiful brown eyes,
and you long black hair.
And your beautiful smile,
are all beyond compare.
Now on “Our Anniversary”,
I wish I was there.
I want to let you know,
just how much I care.
The love that I feel for you,
will grow with each passing year.
You are the only one in my life,
that I will always hold dear.
I need you more than life itself,
this is so true.
I want to let you know how very much,
“I Love You!”

As If It Were A Secret

White on black sheets.
Covered in sweat.
They lay in silent defeat.
They lay no regrets.
The first and possibly the last time.
Though as it was love,
It still was a crime.
The air still hung heavy,
The scent still so sweet.
And through veils of magic,
Nothing could ever be so keen.
The radio stood silent,
CD still in it's case.
A embrace so relient,
A love totally safe.
Flashbacks flood the mind,
A mistake totally fit.
And I whispered to you your name,
As if is were a secret.

Handwritten Vows

He came home from work tonight and held me tight He had been debating about us today with all of his might Obviously he found more reasons than one To have me continue lighting our path as his sun When I try to figure out his reasons why he loves me so He finds his shy reasons to never let me know! But here I sit and write this story~poem to you Men like him so real and so true are very few Some things I figure it's best not to be told For him and him only, my life has been sold From this day forward I choose to be by his side Life isn't easy ~ in fact ~ it's a tough ride But with someone special life is so easy to live With my baby Ricky, he just gives and gives We decided to straighten our lives for each other Never again will my heart belong to another I know I am not perfect, baby, but neither are you We've been through much worse ~ what we have is true I do believe we have been through much worse before We have both had our hearts ripped out and tore But what we have is strong ~ just so you know We are now hitting our highs and have passed our low I have decided it is you who I want to spend my life And I want you to be my husband, and me to your wife Congratulations you have captured all of my love You are my shining angel sent to me from above

Oooh Baby

Oooh Baby 
your eyes are as green as gress
the way way your hands move all over my body feels soooo good
when you wishper in my ear it's sweet like cinnomon
when I sleep I dream about me & you 
Oooh Baby
you are as fine as wine 
I love to kiss you 
talk to you 
I like it when you kiss my neck 
you have it all and it almost make me fall
you got everything I need, want, and could ever ask for
you already got the looks to kill 
now all you need is me right by your side 
to ride or die with is my logo
Oooh Baby 
what I say is true 
and I know I love you

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

~*~ How I Feel About Him! ~*~

Have you ever loved anyone so much that when its time to go, 
you don’t want to leave? Well, that’s how I feel about him.
 When I’m around him, I'm just so happy. 
When he has to go home or when I have to go home, 
I just don’t want him to leave my side.
 Whenever I’m on the phone with him and something happens, 
after we hang up, I think he’s mad at me; 
I go into like his deep depression but when that phone rings and 
I see that its him, all my sorrows go away ad a smile comes to my face 
and his voice and words reassures me that everything between us is 
alright. When he’s away, I listen to our sons and it reminds me of him,
 our relationship and how special he really is to me and 
how special I am to him.

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 way I know to give it.

Happy Anniversary My Love

You know there are all those times
That we can’t express what’s in our heart
But today that it is our anniversary again
Let me tell you what I feel from the very start.

Since the first time that I saw you a long time ago,
There was something so magical about you,
And still I can’t pinpoint exactly what it was,
But perhaps it was that special way you looked at me.

Or it could had been just the sweet way that you smiled too,
I really loved the way that your face brightly shone with your smile,
When you gazed at my direction for what it seemed such a long while,
And yes, you gave me the most wonderful vision of your love for a thousand mile.

Your handsome face had that very mischievous grin that I’m familiar with,
The very same that I’d gotten to know by this day in time so very well,
And even though we had gone by now through so many storms and bad weather,
We had enjoyed lots of sunshine here and there and that I can really tell.

And today that we are celebrating another year, another anniversary together,
Let me tell you one more time again in this magical occasion, a very special day,
How much I really love you and all that you really mean in my heart and soul to me,
And I am so really glad no matter, because in the end you still married me!

And as I am about to finish writing all these line verses here today to you,
Let me tell you one more time what’s in my heart and really thank you,
From the bottom of my very heart and soul for all the love and the life,
That so far you’ve so lovingly given me!

You have always been there for all of us in good and bad times,
You’re such a wonderful man with all your friends and your family,
And I just know now that I am such a lucky woman indeed, 
Since that wonderful day that I just met you!

Half Marriages

So many marriages filled with sadness and sorrow.
Love is not of importance any longer.
Loneliness seems to be a common feeling.
Marriages are meant to be a whole,
They should be filled with love and joy.
What about the vows we spoke?
We agreed for better or worse,
For richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health,
And we agreed in the presence of God.
It was told, “That the two shall be as one”.
Years have now passed by,
And the vows have no meaning.
Marriages are only half
When the one returns to two.
Why can’t you love me wholly?
Why can’t you commit to me wholly?
You may give a hug or a peck,
You might say  “I Love You” every now and then.
But your bed is not my bed,
Your life is not shared with my life.
The television serves as your companion.
My words are silent to your listening.
You have buried my heart under the doormat.
Why can’t you love me wholly and completely?
I am lost and alone in a half marriage,
Sadness fills my aching heart,
Silent tears fill my eyes,
Half of me is now gone.
I know we are not the same any more,
We have changes in many ways,
But why should our love?
Is not love supposed to grow with time?
I want to be loved as me.
I want this pain to end, to smile again.
Why can’t we be as one again?

So Complete

You are the sunlight
my seed is starving for
You are the music
my wings need to soar
You are the muscle
that makes my love strong
You are the magic
that makes me feel I belong
You are the tiny bubbles
in my bubble bath
You are my tickle bone
that always makes me laugh
You are the lyrics
I need to finish my song
You are the inspiration
I need to continue on
You are the wind
that helps me sail my seas
You are the reason
my life is so complete

Ride On The Wind... Forever

I Want To Ride On The Wind… Forever
I Want To Ride Over Land and Sea
I Want To Ride on The Wind… Forever

I Want To Ride On The Wind Over Mountains
And Touch The Sky, So Blue
Then Raise Oceans, Like Sparkling Fountains
And Splash Through Water, Kissing You

I Want To Ride On The Wind… Hold Its Mane
Ride The Wind… Wild and Free
For The Wind – Will Never Be Tame…
So Hold On Tight and Just… Breathe…

… Ride The Wind – Let It Begin – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Breathe It In – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Blow Again – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Raise The Wind – Ride The Wind!

I Want To Ride On The Wind – In The Moonlight
I Want To Ride On The Wind – In The Clouds
And Wave To The Wings of Eagles in Flight
… then Float like Snow – Dancing Down

I Want To Ride On The Wind Forever
I Want To Ride and Rush-Up Rainbow-Stairs
I Want To Ride On The Wind – Forever 
For Your Sweet-Breath Beckons Me… Everywhere

… Ride The Wind – Let It Begin – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Breathe It In – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Blow Again – Ride The Wind
Ride The Wind – Raise The Wind – Ride The Wind!

Does He Still Love Me?

Years gone by since we said those words, “I do”.
We have had our good and our bad.
So many changes we both have gone through.
We have grown in knowledge
And yes our figures as well.
We have built a life, a family and a home.
We have gone through sorrows and lost much.
But no matter, we still have each other.
I wonder though, “Does he still love me?”
I am not the same as I was when we met.
I lack the elegant beauty on the outside,
And the years have taken its toll.
My heart and soul has changed as well.
In some ways we have grown together,
But we have drifted apart in many.
I wonder though if he loves me still.
I know it may not be the same
As the day he said, “I do”.
Could it be more or could it be less?
Does he still love me?
He still helps around the house,
Which is all right with me.
He still says, “I love you” but is he sincere?
He still gives a peck on the cheek,
But it’s not the same as he did years before.
I do not ask for much,
Only to show his love as he once did.
I wonder, “Does he love me?”

Their Rendezvous

His intention was not to fall in love right away but then you came along.
You were not as bubbly as the other girls he met.
There was something different about her.
It was if he was destined to be with her.
She seemed to be on some kind of a mission.
He could see a faraway gaze in her eyes.
He wondered what she was thinking about.
She noticed him looking at her and said, "We are surrounded by splendor under the cherry 
blossom trees."
"I could stay with you here forever", he said.
Every year for the past six years, they came back to the same spot.
The familiar unrequited love has rekindling in them.
It seemed as if they never left at all.
Just before they left again, they promised to never forget their rendezvous.

Path Way

When you say your alright, I'll be there to hold onto the words you speek

Only hoping for a moment that its not a token of an apology

No more can we aford to struggle over the little things 

That seem so trivial in the conseguences in our everyday lives

For now we must indure the distant long road ahead

hoping that our love never could stray as we travel on the well beaten path

Sharing and hoping with every day cooupings tht come our way

Nothing can compare to our love and no one has the power to betray the sacred 

That you and I once shared on our most glories day of days

Could we be any more complete though we may be tired

We must rest our tattered feet, and when little things do crop up every now and 

May we have the understandance that frustrations do boil within

And that our path has never lost its view, just the horizon is in lines view

As we must stop every now and then, to pick our selves up 

And start on our jorney again, never to lose the path that we so desperately walk

To the horizon and far beyond, till we reach the Heavens and see God

Only then will we relize in what we have done

Walked a path of Uncondisional Love

"What A Women is Made Of "(part one)

i am, from the  newest  of born clay 
made of my mother's earth 
to be molded 
and not to  be played with 

i am,  the pain of  glass
made of sand
to block the wind 
to be looked though 
and never meant 
to be broken  

i am from the small  crust of bread
made of the smallest grain 
bake in the hottest of suns 
and not meant to be shared 

i am, from the oldest of rain drops  
made of heaven first tears 
to wash and refresh 
with essence of water 
and perception of , thousands years  

made to love only you 
to kiss only you 
soft and ready 
only  for you

Our Love Tribune

We laid on the beach after frolicking around.
Sand on our bodies, in our personal playground.

Ocean waves encampasses our love.
The night sky is clear with stars up above.

You kiss me passionately, awaking my senses.
My thoughts teasing my carnal inhibitions.

You embrace me and hold me tenderly.
Hold me forever, this night I will remember blithely.

My heart soars, our love will be a tribune..
You are my love, my man in the moon.

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.

Happy Father's Day Todd

It feels like I have known you
for my entire life.
I truly started living
when I became your wife.

You've taught me what true love is
by opening your heart.
My love for you is immeasurable.
It's been growing from the start.

I watch you with our children.
The love shown on your face.
You show them all such tenderness
as you guide them into place.

If I could choose the perfect man,
you'd be the only one.
You're dependable, and reliable,
but you're also tons of fun!!

You help to teach our kids what's right
and guide them through this life.
I have to tell you once again...
I love being your wife!

As This Dying Day (from My Secret Sin)

Are you as lovely as this dying day
Because I’m weak, I’m fragile, I’m so weary
Yes your as precious as living this day
But I’m weak, I’m fragile
My tears fall innocently packed with fury
Are you as lovely as dying this day
I could never live this life forever and smile
I beg of you all, bless “Never” upon this child
Maybe it’s comfort in your arms that’s so warm
Kisses so sympathetic, yet frowns burn in such charm
As we tiptoed in harmony
How did your soul become so fond of me
Are you as lovely as dying this day
Because I’m weak, I’m fragile, I’m so weary
Yes your as precious as living this day
But I’m weak, I’m fragile
My tears fall innocently packed with fury
Are you as lovely as this dying day
I’ll console you warmly, 
Gazed upon eternal memories of us
I’ll crumble 
But we’ll remain humble through memories of trust
How far are you from this one isle
Step by step
It’s seems you’ve been coming forward for miles
I don’t want to live this life
And regret not asking you to be my wife

Our Dream

  OUR DREAM (Dedicated to my friends at their Golden anniversary)

As we both lye down to be of rest
Fluffy pillows placed beneath our heads
A Dream begins for both as one
Blanket of envelopes the power of red

In this dream, they gathered all 
To the showing of honor and cheer
Toasting with laughter hugs with a smile
All of our friends we collected through the years

Children so beautiful all in a row
 Masterpiece to the eyes that have vision
Each holds the link to strength we call family
Placement of love in the heart no incision

Can you believe this is what we have built?
 50 years of the teaching and learning
Experience life in magical ways
 Kiss on my cheek, I glow, flames still burning 

A celebration they say is in order
 Lifetime achievement for what we created
 Values, Respect, Commitment and Trust
Just a few words held strong, never faded

Night in shining armor is I
Queen of the castle your throne
I defend always my soul mate
In this life together etched in stone

Hummingbirds flying resting on flower
To observe life’s beauty has gifted
Take a soft petal home for the warmth
 The cold sets in winter, desert, after Christmas

At the end of my day I find refuge in knowing
My best friend is the one I have chosen
Relationship manifested from a dream we both had
 50 light years away we remain together frozen

You've waited your whole lifetime
for this moment to arrive
and now that you have become one,
you feel you've come alive.

When love is right, you know it.
You see it in their eyes.
You feel it in the slightest touch.
You hear it in their sighs.

Forever from this moment
you'll never feel alone.
Your best friend will be by your side.
Your house is now a home.

I am so happy for you.
I wish you love and peace.
No matter what God throws your way,
your love will just increase.

I pray your love grows stronger
throughout your new found life.
You finally found your soul mate
and you now call her your wife.

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 miss you like there's no tomorrow
I clench my chest to sooth my hearts sorrow
My head spins round and round
The reason He chose you cannot be found

My eyes water when your name is spoken
Your death, has me awoken 
These salty tears stream down my face
Life is going at a too fast pace

I ask God every night and day
I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray
My house is quiet with you gone
I just don't know what went wrong

My knees shake at the sound of your name
My life will never be the same
Nightmares wake me up each night
I can never reach you, when you're in my sight

You left my world a bitter and alone
My life is harder then a stone
So I loose, you win...
So let me be, let this darkness close in

An Anniversary Prayer

As you reflect back on your life together
On your anniversary
Recall the vows that you took
As you stood face to face
Pledging your love for each other

You solemnly promised before God and man
To forsake all others both in thought and in deed
And furthermore, you expressed your love for each other
Repeating these words one after the other--
To have and to hold from this day forward--
For better or for worse--For richer or for poorer--
In sickness and in health...'Til death do us part--
You both promised sincerely from your hearts...

So since right from the start
You promised to no longer be two--but one
Then The Son will be your guide
As you walk through life together--forever--side by side
May you have many more years before you

                                          In Jesus' Name

On This Usual Day;
I Write You This Poem,
In My Own Special Way.

I Wanted To Tell You,
In Words Of My Own;
You're The Most Precious Person,
That I've Ever Known.

You're The Prettiest Girl,
Than Any I've Seen;
Your Body Is Flawless,
So Slender And Lean.

Your Eyes Have That Sparkle,
That I Can't Live Without;
One Day Without Them,
And I'd Die There's No Doubt.

And I Just Lose Control,
When I Glance At Your Hair;
Those Curls Are Just Stunning,
So Perfect And Rare.

You're The Most Caring Person,
That I've Ever Met;
There's No One Like You,
And That I Can Bet.

What Attracts Me The Most,
Is Your Sweet And Kind Touch;
You're A Gift Sent From Heaven,
And I Love You So Much.

So Hold Me As Close,
As You Possibly Can;
'Cause Now And Forever,
I Am Your Man.

Happy Anniversary

It was a chilly winter’s day,
not unlike today, in fact
the snow, well, it had already been shoveled;
making the roads clear, as my thoughts and
as the view of you.
I recall waiting; anticipation and anxiety were overwhelming.
and all of a sudden there you were.
The image remains a constant picture in my mind.
For no other art is needed as I possess the most beautiful
painting in the world, right in my thoughts.
So beautiful, there was no one else around;
though there were others there.
And I can remember speaking, but don’t remember what was said
as your image controlled my mind and your heart
still controls my heart; I am forever yours.
We were one. We are one. We will always be one.
And our garden, together we planted, it has grown.
Through nourishment and love our seedlings thrive.
They capture the essence of love and the creation of two
when they make one. Thank you, my darling.
You have given me all of these things
And have made me the richest man on the face of the earth.
I love you and Happy Anniversary!!

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.

All Great Things Must Fall

What is getting in the way of our love?
My parents, we both agree.
Lets show them, What our love can be.
We'll proove them wrong.
Show them just how our love will grow strong.
Here we are holding hands.
The day we know we'll last forever.
Saying I do.
While I rub my stomach.
A daughter on the way.
Oh my god!
Today is the day!
Here she comes, oh honey I do.
I love you more then words can say.

Now ten years later.
What else can I say?
I still love you more then words.
You still love me.
Our little girl now ten years old.
Two little boys, seven and four. 
Another on the way.
My parents still trying to get between.
Saying we wont last.
We've got to proove them wrong.

Now twelve more years.
Our first turning twenty-two.
Two reaching nineteen, three coming sixteen.
Four and Five coming on twelve.
Were did we go wrong?
We feel like we're falling apart.
But we know, we love each other more then words.
We fight, yes we know.
Teenagers and babies, 
Parents and all.
What can I say?
All great things must fall.
All and all we were right.
Love was the truth, 
We'll never change that.
We prooved my parents wrong,
Because here we are, 
Still pushing our love to go strong.

Though we may feel our love is fading.
Each time I kiss you, 
I remember when we were dating.
The roses, the kisses,
We still hold them dear.
Twenty-three years later,
You and I are still here!

One Year Anniversary

-It's amazing how you mended my broken heart
-It's crazy how you pieced it back together when it was so badly torn apart
-It's awesome how you took my frown and turned it upside down
-It's great how happy i feel whenever you're around
-It's funny how when you hold me, all my fears die
-It's fantastic how you made me feel real when i thought i was living a lie
-It's sweet when you kiss me and hold me drying off a tear
-It's cute how it feels like we've been together all our lives but it's only been a year!

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
me loving you every second of the day. Be the
love of my life until my life is no more, then
guide me to the gates of heaven so I can shine
my love for you for all eternity.

This is who I'll be
The one who wipe away all your tears
The one who understands everything about you
The one who's there for good times and bad times
This is who I'll Be
Your very best friend,never turning my back on you
The one who will always love you
The one who will never ever stop loving you
This is who I'll be
The one with no unbroken promises
The one who keeps you completely satisfied
The one who makes all your wishes and dreams come true
This is who I'll be
The one who's faithful and true
The one who makes you smile without saying a word
The one you're always thinking of
This is who I'll be
The one that give you NO doubt when it comes to real love
The one who show you that you can love again
The one who treats you like a lady
This is who I'll be
The one that knows how to make love a forever lasting experience
The one who makes you feel very special
The one who's not about lies,drama or playing games

My feelings

You were in my dream before I even knew that there was a you and me,
Now I can't wait to see your smile,
When I wake up each day,
It makes it worth while with the kinda love you plant inside, 
Specially with a heart so empty as mine.
All your soft tenderness is the one thing that I don't wanna miss,

What you wrote to me made feel so good but emotional lol I dont like sounding 
like a kid. lol But its true.
You were the one I asked god to bring me.
A beautiful woman who shares my desires, goals, dreams, and most importantly 
Vision in life. I prayed to God that some where in this world is my soulmate. I was 
wrong God brought me to heaven to find my true love and thats were I saw you 
my darling.

More Then Words

I want to say I love you,
But I love you just won't do.
What I feel is stronger,
because all I have is you.
I want kiss your lips,
and hold you close to me.
Because when I close my eye's
your face is all I see.
It smiles and says 
three words I want to hear.
Your eyes give me comfort,
Take away all my fear.
So when you say you love me,
Be sure to understand.
Your all that keeps me living,
my heart is in your hands.

I desire

I desire the cloths I wear.
Like a shirt, a tee, a skirt, a pant
A crop an flare. Man with pretty hair.

I desire,
Shirt that flirt.
And pants that tight but doesn’t hurt.
Desert tones that I desire.

Wraps that shape.
Man like super hero in his cape.
	Flying home to be rescue and never EX-scape.
But keep their love in shape.
I desire a man who never comes home late.
 	I desire a man who white, brown, or black
	To make love to my mind, he might be tall he might be fine.
	But he always be mine.
	Always give me sweet kisses.
	Give me sweet roses. For valentine. 
	He always made me shine.

	Boy, people don’t know how much I desire this man.
Drive up the wall, I can dream easily I can’t really explain.
 	He must be hard to fine, that I can’t complain.

Circles on the Floor

All night long
Over and over again
We danced
In circles on the floor
We held hands
And each other close
Only letting go
To place the needle
Back in the groove
We would return 
Where we stood still
Holding hands
And each other close
Until the music
Moved through the static
We kissed
And caressed
Again and again
Until we danced
Circles on the floor

Thunder Is My Love,Lightening Is My Love

Thunder is my love, for how  I care.
Lightening is my fire, from which falls from the air.
Thunder is my love, which sounds like a loud boom.
Lightening is my fire, which brightens the room.
Thunder is my love,  which comes from above.
Lightening is my fire, from which my soul desire.
Thunder is my love, from which my passion never stops.
Lightening is my fire, that makes the feeling pops.
Thunder is my love, the sound is like a vibration.
Lightening is my fire, in every situation.
Courage is for which I will stand.
Hope is my believing in every woman and man.
Peace and faith is something to walk by.

"Feelings for others should matter more than to yourself."

High Pair

There were secrets we shared
And tenderness dared
We were so scared in the night
We told us we cared
Using fast falling words
We never heard
As quickly we paired in delight
So hurry and scurry
and worry no more
Today is tomorrow 
and time we can borrow
With no room for sorrow
Our loving  felt ever so right
So together forever we fight
for sharing a life as we might
Truth in a moment of light

I cannot remember yesterday
The days without you near
I cannot think of loneliness
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

The lights eternal in the sky
Shone brightly there for years
Your love that so well holds my heart
Has trampled darkened fears

It was as if you were always a part
As if your heart, you always shared
I can’t remember times before
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

So, life can’t be, there’d be no flame
If you could not share with me
As time permits us, our hearts dance
In love, which sets us free

   My lips tremble thinking about what you said last night.

   I close my eyes and dreamed of a place you couldn't make me cry.

   But your always in my dreams, Bitting, fighting to be seen.

   I don't want to see you, but you make it some how and torture me my soul cries at 
   night to survive.

   I didn't want this to be how it is. You made me laugh occassionally so that's what 
   love is?

   I cuddled, you screamed some how love is far away from what you said it was.

   I soaked in the bathtub for hours and still I can smell you on me.

   Don't you know how that feels crying I walked out on the porch.

   You made me feel so helpless and down and now that your gone I crave for your blood.

   I want you I need you, no one else beats me like you.

   But then again I guess i'm just addicted to lies and abuse you wanted me to like it 
   didn't you?

Assisted Living

  She smoothed the worn out roses on the apron in her lap
lamplight mellowed roughened knuckles
as she spread out her treasures
Like Silas Marner,thumbing his golden coins
Martha gently fingered every token of her life's journey
   Some she even kissed,tenderly,reverently,recalling
some dear face,a memory,attached as surely as if it was
etched,permanently ,on her heart.
   Martha smiled,whispered,and prayed as one by one she
placed her keepsakes back in a cedar box
until she came to the one thing she always saved til last
Her wedding veil. still crinkly and alive though yellowed with time
she took it up and put it on.Stiffly she hobbled to the mirror
In the looking glass she was nineteen and aglow with love 
   Arthur stood behind her,smoothing her hair.
she turned as he lifted the veil to kiss her,
  Come my love,let's go down to dinner,he mummered in her hair
She took his arm and let him escort her to the dining room
   The reception was a great success,or so the nurses told her
as they dressed her for bed and carefully put the mischievious
veil back in the cedar box beside her bed.

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! ! ! !

Far Away..

Far Away.. 

Are you far away?
Please come back soon and stay..

Are you thinking about me to?
As much as I am thinking about you?

The time we spent together, how can you forget?
Will you gamble with fate and win the bet?

Escaping from reality is this love real?
Or is it what I think I feel.

Your smile, your eyes and your touch..
How can I forget that much..?

I long to see you and you hold me close..
Your the one I miss the most...

Happy Anniversary

It has been a long time since I asked you to share my name,
   Thirty seven years from a glowing ember to a bright burning flame.
I can remember seeing you back then,
    How you’d just sit and practice writing your new name over and over again.
No one thought our love could ever grow,
    Most gave us only a year but they didn’t know.
They didn’t know our hearts or the love that caused this burning desire.
    They didn’t know that one little spark could kindle such a warm burning fire.
And now when we speak it’s two voices as one.
     And always wanting what’s best for the other is how this is done.
Compassion and pain are the things that make a love grow.
   Loving someone is compassion and feeling their pain is letting them know.
Like any marriage we’ve had dark clouds that loomed up above.
   But they weren’t strong enough to diminish our forever love.
A Norman Rockwell painting we were not and that is for sure.
    Family Circle cartoon would better depict us and the life we’ve had to endure.
But looking back brings a smile and that’s what it’s all about.
    And would I do it over again in a heartbeat without hesitation or doubt.
Happy Anniversary to you, my Darling, the Love Of My Life.
    With gratitude and love I thank you for being my lady, for being my wife.
I Love You

14 Years

Almost 14 years now, to the day,
her lips formed the words, “I do”.
I could not have predicted, ever foreseen,
a love that could withstand and hold true.

With promise to love and promise to care,
together, we walked into tomorrow.
Holding hands, letting go and grabbing again
continues to keep at bay, all sorrows.

With her at my side, this half is now whole;
a perfect completion, bodies now one.
A love more radiant could never be seen
by staring into the rising, nor setting sun.

God, in the heavens, I thank you, I do
for the angel, of whom I had wed.
You sent her to a man who was giving up
and, on love, felt all chances were dead.

On the night that we celebrate the clocks turning hands,
chiming fourteen years since the wedding kiss,
I celebrate love and the time spent with her
and the matrimonial, harmonious bliss.

(We recently celebrated our 15th - How time flies)

Attributed Appreciations

              “Attributed Appreciations”

Baby you’re beautiful, so appealing to my eye;
Baby you’re beautiful;
And that beauty has made me cry.
And you’re the angel that makes me fly

Baby you give me what my soul needs;
Please forgive me for my sometimes greed;
When like a starving man;
From your love I often feed

Baby you’re beautiful and my all.
You’re the music in my songs;
You’re the love that makes me strong.
And in my sleepy dreams to you I call.

Baby you’re beautiful for my heart;
Even though I’ve been a fool;
In my heart there’s only you;
And I’ve loved you from the start.

Baby it’s been over thirty years;
We’ve had our laughs and cried our tears;
But through it all we have survived;
You make me glad that I’m alive.

Baby you’ve been beautiful all along
And though these rhymes are simple words;
You’re the sweetest song; I’ve ever heard;
And loving you was never wrong.

Baby you’re beautiful;
So appealing to my eye;
To your beauty I’ve often cried;
You’re my angel from heavens skies.

My life and you

You're my life, you're my love,
You're my shining star, you're my beautiful dove,
I love you so much, you don't even know,
When I think about you my face starts to glow,
I'm so blessed to know you,
Just talking to you makes me feel less blue,
I've always wanted somebody like you in my life,
Someone who's kind, adorable, and usually very nice,
But I never stop to think,
That what God's given me could be gone in a wink,
It's never really occurred to me,
That God could easily take you away from me,
So while we're here, let's make it great,
And whatever happens, is up to fate,
Because if there's one thing in this life I know is true,
It's the simple fact, that I LOVE YOU

Dear Love,

There is no life without you. Without you there is emptiness, sadness, and pain. 
How can I live a day without you? I cant because if you are not there by my side, I 
cry, all turns to gray and darkness fills the sky with tears.
My life without you is nothing, my life without you is empty. My love for you is 
eternal, and it will always be there for you as so will I. You gave me the key to your 
heart, I locked it in mine and I promised to never let it go. My soul is powered by 
your love, the only thing in this world that keeps it alive, is you. Day by day it is you, 
that makes me smile, that makes me laugh, and inside makes me cry because 
you, and your love, is so special to me, you spark my life with joy. Every night I cry 
not yet a tear of sadness, but a tear of happiness. 
Ever since I met you, I never knew that love can feel so good, I never knew my 
heart could beat so fast, so strong. You have filled my life with happiness but 
most of all you have filled my heart with love. Before I met you I prayed and prayed 
and cried every night for someone to take my loneliness away, I prayed for 
someone to be my side and love me. But then I met you, you are more than what 
I prayed for, I never prayed for an angel, I never prayed for a girl as special as you. 
From when we met, you were no longer a dream, you were a dream come true, 
you were reality, you are my life... I could never ask for anyone else, or anything 
better then you. You mean so much to me, you are my everything, you are the love 
of my life, you are all I ever wanted. There is not a person on this planet that that 
can love me the way that you do, there is not a person on this planet that can 
make me feel the way that you do, and there is not a person that I even want to 
try, because it would only be a waste of there time. 
Life without you is pain, life without you is empty, life without you is nothing. I 
promise to never leave you, I promise to always be by your side, I promise I will 
always be there for you. I promise to protect you and I most of all promise to 
never, to never let you go and to always love you. I love you so much, I want to get 
married to you, I want to start a family with you, I want to spend forever with you by 
my side, holding my hand and look into each others eyes and say the words that 
mean so much “I love you” life without you is no life at all I love you.

When Love is Rough

When Love is Rough

The funny things we may say
or the crazy things we might do
but when we  hit rock bottom
there is no one else to blame, but you.

Don't put your guard down- still trust
in me, because I'll be there baby,
you just wait and see.

I may get mad, I may even be sad.
but you can be certain that I will
never leave. So embrace me with your
thoughts and cry me your tears.

Just remember we all need someone, but
remember your someone is me. My love is
very special. It is a love come true.
Baby it will soon be twenty-two.

I Love You

What do I mean when I say this to you?
It means I wish I could find the words,
To tell you what your love does for my life.
It means that no matter what happens,
You’ll always be my one and only.
It means that when I’m confused and lonely,
I look to you for help and comfort.
It means you’re my best friend.
It means I know you’re not perfect,
And I don’t expect you to be. 
It means when I look at you,
It’s my happiness I see. 
What does it mean when I say I Love You?
It means all of this and so much more!!!

I was in a bit of a surprise to be with a woman like you...

Being with you is like a child being with his only and favorite teddy bear, he just 
want to hug it, kiss it, tell it you love it, and never let it go....

Everything about you make you the perfect woman for me in my eyes, my heart, 
my soul.....

Your personality is so wonderful to the point that I could talk to you about anything 
and never have to worry... which is what gave you my heart....

Your smile and the kiss of your lips is like I been kissed by an Angel.... and that 
what are too me....a blessing....

Just looking into your eyes is like I'm in heaven and could fly or do anything in the 
world with my wonderful girl... you by my side... which is what made me addicted 
to you... 

Just you being you make me feel like I have found the perfect woman whom no 
one in the world can take me away from cause she has my soul....which is why I 
love you....

Sometimes I wonder why out of all the men in this world you chose me.......

But whatever it was that made you do it, makes me thank the lord everyday for 
having you and he knows I am forever grateful for having a perfect woman like 
you who i can spend the rest of my life with....

Anniversary Poem

Thanks be to the fates that sent to me
A woman with eyes soft and deep as doves'
Who holds within her a tiger's heart,
Unafraid of her powers,
Unashamed of her gifts -
A woman like you, to join with in love.

A score and some years now gone and still we see
The strength of our taken vows.
Kisses traded in silent hours,
Thoughts shared in the weddeds' private art
Experience collects in ever-deepening drifts
Bringing with it such wisdom as time allows.

So with the rounding of yet another year
I rejoice once again
In the silent volumes writ within us.
I adored you long before, and now
And will as well come Then,
As the grey falls through our hair and life grows more dear,
Reading the lines time carves upon us
We'll feel the Why and know the How
Of love's evolution through all things shared and seen,
The kisses sweet at sixty as sixteen.

You and Food

Your like a cup of Kool-Aid baby you’re so sweet 
Like lobster for dinner you’re not cheap
Some red wine in my glass because baby you got class
Like dessert on my plate I just can’t pass
Your like fried chicken your golden brown 
Just like a taco your bottom is nice and round
Your like some fresh honey straight out of a bees hive
Just like some water I need you to survive.

Love Like Ours

Like a feather
We are twined togther
Like a kite
We will take a long flight
And see a beautiful sight
Like a bird 
We will glide through the skies
And there will be no lies
To disguise our eyes
And fly from above and below
We will bestow our love forevermore
LIke the sea 
There will be no ending and no beginning
To the current that moves us
Through the troubled waters
To the waves that smoothes and soothes us
Through the end of our days
LIke I saw you from the beginning
My love for you will not have an ending

Eternal Love

Deep in my heart there is a burning flame called the eternal love. It burns for you 
and tells me our love is true. This burning flame keeps getting hotter and hotter. 
Burns higher and higher. The flame is a voice telling me to say I love you. Telling 
me to kiss you, hold you, and touch your soft skin. And not to let anyone else in. 
My heart beats with power. Telling me never let go. Telling me our love is real. 
Letting me know this is the last deck of cards I will ever deal. With the bond we 
share. Nothing can get in our way, not even air. The eternal love lies in my heart. 
Telling me never part. CZ your love comes from the heart.

I love you more each and every day

I love you more each and every day.
I see your smile and it lights up my face.
I feel your skin and it takes me away,
Takes my breath so I have nothing to say.
I taste your lips through a sweet tender kiss.
It shapes my soul with a gentle breeze of bliss.
I pull you close with your loving arms around.
Don't say a word, don't make a sound.
Just hold me close and don't ever let go.
Love is what we share and care is what we show.
For you are my one and my only true being
This is what I'm feeling, but also what I'm seeing.
I know we can last for more than forever.
I'd never stop loving you even not together.
Nothing could stop how I feel this way.
I love you more each and every day.

Happy anniversary

Good morning 

Fourteen years ago today we said I do,
 fourteen years later I'm still madly in love with you,
you are my power when I fill run down,
 the one who lifts me up and erases my frown,
mother to my children, lover in my arms,
 my best friend ....the one behind all my charm,
you are my heart and soul and all my life's worth,
 and always my inspiration to move forth,
my girl, my woman, my lady, my dear,
 you dried my eyes and chased my fears,
you are my sun light and my nights bright star,
 the sparkle in my eye and my one and only by far,
my past, my present, and my future all rolled into one,
 and the way you smile at me....I see our lives have just begun,
without you I couldn't see all the wonders before me,
 so on this day with full of pride and loving respect happy anniversary.

New Beginings

Now that the past is gone
And the memories are one
My path is love
My destination your arms

Although some memories
Hold so much pain
I must learn to face my heart
It will never be the same

As I walk along the seashore
I hear a seagull cry
And I wonder if there's anymore
To cause this heart to die

But then I met you
And you turned my life around
I know that in you
The love of my life I have found.
