Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine. 
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time. 
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand. 
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand. 
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine. 
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep. 
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire. 
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in. 
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming. 
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark. 
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire. 
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife. 
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

The Luckiest Man

The Luckiest Man


I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long

But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun

And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die

That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do

And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss

And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world

but when it got little 
his pills became skittles   
until he O.D.'d on Viagra

Ode to a rose on a sunset

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as the clouds dip into the sea.
A kiss from that rose as the waves fall,
over the beach to a rose kissed me.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
as we wrap in lovers embrace.
A kiss from a rose as homeward we go,
to a bed clothed in satin and lace.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
with passion and warmth do we grasp.
A kiss from that rose that blossoms and blooms,
my hand in her labour pain clasp.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
that wanton and curvy young bride.
A kiss from that rose that huddles our babe,
so loving, in motherly pride.

A kiss from a rose on a sunset night,
without whom I'd not share my life.
A kiss from that rose who selflessly filled,
the place of my darling rose wife!

Antwan

Antwan you are the love of my life 
You came into my life six years ago
I love you more now then I ever did 

Each day that comes I fall in love with you all over again 
You are the men of my dreams
You are the father of my son

Antwan you are the man that I am going to get married to
You make me feel so free and sexy
When you are near me I feel like I can be anything I wanna be

Antwan you are my best friend 
when I am down you are all ways there for me when I need you
We had our ups and down but we are still together

The love I have for you is forever
I hope you feel the some way but I know you do
Let me love you the way you need to be loved

Antwan I need you and I want you 
I want to lay next to every night and wake up next to you in the morning
Being with you is wonderful and amazing

When I am Kissing you it feels so right
When you hold me I feel so safe in your arms
You make me happy 

Antwan you are like 1,000,000 scoops of  vanilla ice cream I have to have more
God had sent you to me for a reason and the reason is that I was look for 
someone like you.
God told me that your the one for me and that I need you to keep you in my life
I love you so much
Antwan Thank you for loving me the way you do.
Vanessa Brown-Woodberry

For The Man I Love Antwan Woodberry

Unshed Tears

Slice me with your tongue,
Razor blade wounds,
To suck out all my poisens,
Sweet lonely lullaby,
Accusing eyes of sadism,
Picture perfect prodegy, 
My Deadly Sin,
A bitter taste of arson,
Burning in my vital organ,
Your the pyre that burns away my mortality,
A sip of tea made from Lilly of the Valley,
A shadow of Death stalking,
With odd angel like wings,
A Numbing kiss like Drowning in Morphine,
My Oblivion,
Sweet arms to rest in till my vision no longer holds,
Eyes neither like Hell nor Heaven,
Cocain Addiction,
That Drip of Drugs into your system,
Intoxicated blood stream,
I'd rather not dream,
And instead get lost within - Your paralysing,
Your Paralysing, Brain lapse,
Your moving too fast,
Stay slow and dreamy,
Dancing silhoutte,
Like a burning forest fire,
Pain throughout my veins,
Ravishing and Beautiful,
A voice torn from my throat,
Dying joyfully,
With my last sight of you. . .

When East Met West

When East Met West
She found a love at
 its best,
Such a love so difficult
to even express.
You had me from hello
with your tender Caress,
I knew from that moment,
 I wanted the Rest.
A Forbidden Love that was new,
So Strong,
How could one say that this
love was wrong ?
The Very first kiss was so brief,
So tender
I close my eyes and try to 
remember.
A skin so soft to the touch
Oh how I love you so very
much.
A smile from you , set my soul 
on fire,
the touch from your hands fills 
my body with a burning desire.
A moment with you, I want 
Forever,
I Long for the day that we shall
always be together.
Such a sweet love so pure, so true
I love each and everything that you
do.
The look in your eyes tell me how much
you care,
In my heart I pray you'll always be there.
I thank the dear Lord for sending me you,
For bringing me love so pure, so true.
A longing feeling when we must part,
That leaves an empty feeling
deep within my heart.
A hope that one day
you might see
Just how much you truly
mean to me.
Now I have sweet dreams
of our next kiss,
That is something I surely 
do not want to miss.
Your Now My love, One of my
Best Friends,
Baby I don't ever want our
love to come to an end.....

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.

I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

Life

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.

Since First I Saw You

Since first I saw you, it was your eyes,
mesmerizing, your gaze transporting
me to a realm, not of fantasy, real,
where young men go when cupid’s
arrow takes root.

Since first I saw you, it was your lips,
captivating, holding me frozen 
in anticipation of our lips brushing
for the first time.

Since first I saw you, it was your voice,
a crescendo, light, invigorating, 
each word you speak intensifies 
my hearing, enveloping each
note, time ceases as I hang motionless
savoring, memorizing.

Since first I saw you, it was your hair,
long, flowing, gently rising above
your shoulders as a slight breeze
passes through sending waves
of your essence my way. 
The sun magnifying each strand, 
highlighting the minute
variances of invigorating color, 
creating a halo effect, a portrait of
your beauty forever imprinted.

Since first I saw you, It was you,
my love forever more for you,
only you.

For One Day

If I had only one day left with you,
I would ask that day be in God's own time,
one day, a lifetime, every moment
an expression of love,
every hour a new adventure.

twenty four hours to slowly pass
with you at my side,
a never-ending dream,
always giving thanks,
one day left with you, 

would be eternity.

A Beautiful Reverie

Here I lie beside you
My heart goes thump.thump.thump.
My soul dances inside you
Reveling in the texture of your own.
Electric and flowing 
The currents of our love
Glow like neon lights
Illuminating the hope in my eyes.
Though we're not moving
I feel so incredibly alive
Invincible to my past
Untouchable by all who lack
That gentle touch of when 
You lean in and brush my face
Your lips grazing my skin
Softer than a butterfly.
And then you gaze into my eyes
I fall into your depths 
Twirling like the autumn leaves
Melting into your smile 
Your soul reminiscent of summer.
You pull me into your arms 
And for a moment I'm lost 
Breathless and in awe
Staring in the face of pure exquisite love 
And there you are - holding it 
Glowing in the moonlight of my stare.
My heart beats - its drum pounding away
Echoing a song thats lost its words
I touch your cheek and smile
My hands cant stay away
My lips s l o w l y, draw near yours
Hovering, and then - 
Part, a soft warmth against them.
My eye lids pulling shut
Dragging me into a silent heaven
I pull away - and what seemed millennia
Lasted only a moment, a second in time
But this is our love
This is what you do to me
You make me invincible and fragile
Lost forever in a beautiful reverie.

Once Upon A Time

This is a poem about the future I'd love to have with the boy of my dreams.
None of this has actually happened yet (besides us falling in love with eachother) but it's how I would like it to happen.

Once upon a time, I became the luckiest girl in the world. I fell in love with a gorgeous boy with blue eyes, and he actually loved me back. He was like my prince, he treated me like his princess and would do anything for me. Today, we're united as King and Queen. It's been years, but walking down the aisle I'm still staring at the cutest, most perfect guy I've ever seen. When our lips finally meet after parting to say "I do", it tastes like Heaven.

Once upon a time, I married a gorgeous boy with blue eyes. And today, I saw those perfect blue eyes light up when he first held our little girl in his arms. She's got her Daddy's blue eyes and just a little bit of her Momma's brown hair. She's going to be spoiled and loved more than possible. She'll know we support her no matter what, and she can tell us everything. It will be perfect.

Once upon a time, one set of blue eyes became two, and we were made into a family. Now, that second pair of blue eyes is walking out the door to college, with a suitcase in one hand and a boy's hand in the other. He better love her and treat her just as well as her Daddy does.

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a gorgeous boy with blue eyes. His hair has dulled and grayed but his eyes are the same, and they've seen a lifetime's worth of happiness and love. My baby had babies with the boy she walked out the door with, and I can tell she loves them as much as we loved her. Now it's her time to live.

The True Love of a Man

When I was just a little girl, I dreamed I’d meet a knight. He’d proudly wear his shining armor, and guard me day and night. I kept on dreaming half my life and searched as I grew. Until I found my knight one day, I found my knight in you! Before our paths crossed that day, my struggles had been great. But when I laid my eyes upon you, I thought it must be fate. You gently got to know me and embraced me as a friend. And as our friendship grew in time, we knew it wouldn’t end. As our lives were set in motion, we climbed mountains and sailed seas. And as we’ve shared our lives together, we’ve blended with such ease. Our friendship grew as years passed by into such an enduring love. This thing we have together now was blessed from God above! I know we both have said it. We feel it in our souls. We’ve devoted our lives to each other, and together we’ll grow old. The love we share is very rare, and should be held with high esteem. For some may only find this kind, only in their dreams. This is what God planned for us, to live here on this land. To be the best we both can be, walking through it hand in hand. Even when our roads seem rough, we must have a faith that lasts. We’ll smile as we share many today’s, and reflect gladly on our past. I hope I’ve touched your life my love, as much as you’ve touched mine. For this is the love I’ve always dreamed of, a love both gentle and kind. I believe we meet our “soul mate” only once in our lives. This blessing from God has come to us, I’m proud to be your wife. With all this said my poem will end. A poem for my love, who is also my friend! I want to thank you with all that I am, For showing me Darling, the true love of a man!
With all my love, Michelle Merry Christmas – December 2006©

Remind Me

Remind me when I forget, of all the things you have done for me.
Living and loving so carefree.  Remind me when I get upset, you would
hold my body so tenderly, settting my heart and soul free.
Remind me that a love like yours will never be.

Remind me of all the great times we shared, you giving me all the love I
need, and we both helping each other to succeed.  Remind me of all the good
in you, so I will know your love is true, then I will know what to do, and that is
to keep on loving you.

INCOMPLETE by Collice Rodrigues

Even though you sit so close to me
Seems together happy we could never be
As hard I try to get you close
I get pricked by the thorn of the stem of a rose

Your tear drop feels like a thousand pins
I’d rather burn to ashes for my countless sins
You’re a Lily on the water, to get you I try
But as soon as I come close, the pond runs dry

Try as much I would never understand
The pain you feel as i leave your hand
I want to tell you that every moment I miss
The love that we had at the time of our first kiss

I hope that someday will surely come
When our love will every strife overcome
I hope that someday our hearts will surely meet
Till then like the crescent moon I’ll remain incomplete

Secretly Obsessed

Obsessed with the thought of you
wondering if it's only me or
if you sometimes remember the sweet things you've said
and if you meant them how I took them
or if I'm just obsessed with what's in your head

Obsessed with your very sentences
Every response I take personal
I know it's selfishness
Have you not noticed my eyes?
They hold secrets that only you can unlock
if you'd just take time to fill the thick juices of my pride
It's just boiling with lust, passion, trust and distrust
and other things I obsess over so much

I find myself writing to free myself from this prison I've created
where only you and I reside
I become confused about what I'm really feeling inside and I 
try to rid the thoughts that are highly debated as false and I
begin to cry and
think of casting love spells so that the universe can deliver this affair
I know it's unfair
but I don't care

I'm obsessed with what hasn't happened between us
I'm obsessed with your heart and that the fact that 
I don't think you've even noticed my selfish innuendos 
and secret undertones that blatantly express my lust
Or maybe you have and you calmly remain in resistance of distrust 
If you could only read my mind by simply touching my fingertips,
I'm sure I'd catch you out the corner of my eye biting your bottom lip
I'm obsessed with the passion and thoughts I think you have
Obsessing over an experience that I may never have....

The Owl and the PusyCat Sail

Together the Owl and the PusyCat were married
Then again sailed out over the deep blue seas
Searching forever for the great Land of Nod,
To the place where they could find true peace.
True peace, true peace… Where they could find true peace.

The love that twined forever within their hearts
They sought throughout all the wonderous lands
Going to the place where they would live in peace,
A place where true peace, rules and lives in the hearts of the land.
The land, the land… Where true peace lives in the heart of the land.

Alas, the love of the heart, though truly not easy to find…
Is easier to find than the love of peace, found throughout the land.
So it’s said they will continue to sail, until that day comes true,
And when they land for the final time, will be up to me and you.
Me and you, me and you… That day will be up to me and you.

Beg

Let me express my feelings
Let me tell you a true tale
So, my husband has a "gift"
One I can't quite tell

He has his sly fox ways
Of getting what he wants
For if it isn't his way
His ways are full of taunts

He begs and begs and pleads
Honey, baby, dear
I want to hold you close tonight
I want to feel you near

Sometimes I say ok
But others it's too hot
But before the night is over
I end up in his spot

How is that he could argue
with me after such a night
Over a piece of paper
That was strictly in HIS sight

I know he has bad days
Trust me, I have mine too
I guess he can make it up to me
"Somehow" we'll make it through

The Yard Sale Syndrome

Shrunken sweaters, dusty ball caps
Tarnished silver, and hedge clippers
Pointed hat pins, gaudy jewelry
Faded jeans and worn out slippers
Greasy fry pan, wobbly table
Crates of dog-eared musty books
Tattered doilies, ragged Barbies
One brown old crock pot that still cooks

Rusty shovel, dented buckets
Ma's old apron, broken dishes
Dated calendar, crooked lampshade
Chipped glass bowl for all your fishes
Ugly painting, candle holders
One old bike for exercising
Broken TV, toaster oven
Doesn't work....it's not surprising!

What's the point?" our husbands mutter
While we fill the garage with clutter
I explain to him..."She buys mine, and I buy hers"
"What's the point of shopping stores??!"
"Now...don't you know the grass is greener?"
"OH GOOD!"  "She's bought my vacuum cleaner!"

Just then I point across the street!!
Another yard sale.....and we both shriek!!

He points at me and shakes his fist
But I'll just ignore and toss a kiss
And side by side I'm in a race...
Who gets there first will buy that vase!!
Whoopee!!!  I spy a broken chair...well, I can glue it!
Just hope she doesn't beat me to it!
Another point about my purchase
Perhaps I can use it for another purpose

    Oh No!!...he's found old tool collections!!
    And points at them with great affection!!

The point I'm making is simply this
Another's person's trash or junk, may soon become your bliss!

My Heart


My heart is wound around your heart.
Mine is sustained by the beat of yours every day.
My dreams are wrapped around your dreams,
As I find peace in your arms and ways.

My vision is colored in life’s beauty
And you were the one to show it to me.
My happiness grew out of the knowledge
Of the life you built with me.

You taught me how to love this world 
Amid all the tragedies that befall a life.
And you taught me to find God’s way
When he brought you, my soul mate, into my life.

Together

Friends lost & friends gained
As memories begin to fade
A world created just for us
A world that best friends share, that's us
You draw, I write, together we created our life
Years gone and more to come
For your my husband and I your wife
Together we made this life
Together now, together than, together forever
You and me

First Love… Real Love  -  Forever True

Ma… Was there, to get 6-packs for A Party…
Pa… Was there, ‘cause of a Taste for Bacardi
He took One Look and Knew He Couldn’t Waste Her
Pa… Gave-up ‘Drank’… Just so He Could Chase her !

Dad, Said, ‘He’d Drowned in Dark-Eyes and Sweet-Aroma
Fine-Wine, Crystal… But Tuff’ Nuff’ to Down-Drama
Pa Claims, Mama’s Labeled by the F.D.A.
And Listed on Her Driver’s License is,  A.K.A.  …

"Boot-Legged Mama… Done Drove Pa Sober !"

I love you so 
And in this lifetime you will never know
The love in my heart 
Has been there from the start
The first time on metrodate
The site of our union
We always had our ups and downs
But we weathered through the obstacles
To where we are today
And each day from here forward
Until the precious Lord takes me away
To the place of glory and contentment
But even in Heaven I will be
Watching over you and guiding you
To find the perfect image of me
To carry on the traditions of glorious marriage
Which you will not be deprived of 
While you are still young and beautiful
Which will never change?
For you beauty is endless to mine eyes
For the time being while I am still with you
I will always love, honor, and cherish
Beyond imagination and comprehension
You are my queen and the mother of my children 
Who will grow into the years? 
From youth to adulthood
Knowing they have always been loved
To the fullest extent imaginable
From this day forward
I pray these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
Amen

Chorus
Our father is always there
He knows in our hearts what we need
He guides us in our daily lives
Our father he will always be

Touch Something Wonderful

Touch something wonderful

Grateful and fulfilled
The way you make me feel
I fly above love
Whenever I touch 
Something Wonderful..

All that God reveals
Like Heaven and Earth now has a bridge
You really haven’t lived
Until you’ve touch 
Something wonderful

As I’ve come to learn 
Wealth is having your support
And miracles are possible
By default…
It’s wonderful.

A wise man can see
When Angels tithe
In your life
Treasures untold
It’s simply wonderful


Effortless for me 
To enhance the man I am
Whenever I touch
Something wonderful

Confident and surprisingly secured
A covenant of love
Has restored me
It takes root right here in my chest
And my very life depends 
On something wonderful

Turn to me and know 
I am reliable
Undeniably Improved
Reveals your kindred soul

A sinful man redeemed
By your love
In my life
Did know?
It’s just wonderful!

Restless as the breeze 
I must admit
It blesses me
Whenever I touch
Something wonderful

The sweetest fruit to reap
Is the seed that lover’s sown
I finally home

A simple place to mend my wounds
Blood, sweat and tears
I prepared a place for you
No ups or downs
Will spoil me
You spoil me with loyalty
My feelings will never change

You mean the world to me
Your sweet concern for me
To turn and see you by my side
My prayers are realized
Just look into my eyes and believe


A wise man can see
When Angels tithe
In your life
Treasures untold
It’s simply wonderful

Effortless for me 
To enhance the man I am
Whenever I touch
Something wonderful

My Angel Love

Love is giving of oneself, without any goal in return.
Love is a feeling; you get of fulfilling their needs.
Love is inside, never requiring an answer from other.
True love is feeling abandoned, after a tough quarrel.
Missing, but still longing, for a touch or a tender kiss.
Knowing the question, that our love will continue,
Each day, though we are different entities of earth.
Our togetherness grows, evolving into forever.
Our minds separate, but hearts bonded in richness.
Our souls surrender to the passion, we no longer miss.
Not relying on sexual, but sensual knowing our way,
Physical union, a magical dimension we have shared.
However, each day our hands clasp, satisfies my senses
Your scent of sensual purity, my temple of true bliss,
Even the minuet, we share at times delivers elation.
Each hour that passes, I deem you are my love Angel.
That has entered my life, to create peace in my soul.

' 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 . . .

7654 ... 321

The 7,654th day of my life
Who would've thought it could be?
That all of those days of waiting,
This day would set me free?

Why do I feel like today could be it?
When I've been counting down,
but zero has yet to hit?

My heart keeps beating
My blood stays flowing
But my brain is overheating 
Without me even knowing

You came into my life
Without fair warning
Consistantly reminding me you care
Each and every morning

It's like destiny introduced us
And faith made us close
As if God sent me an angel
When i needed one most.

You are the exact definition
of what a real man should be;
A true lover, husband, father & friend
You're perfect, but that's something you don't see.

In my eyes you're much more
Than what you'll care to believe.
Because you're my best friend and confidon,
And the truth is what I perceive.

If I died today, I can say that
I'd be sure of only one thing
That meeting you is greatest joy
That my life could ever bring

So when it's all said and done,
I'm still counting down
7 - 6 - 5 - 4 ... 3 - 2 - 1
Zero still has yet to come.

Greatest Love

All I ever wanted is a lifetime of happiness
The caring, the sharing and the togetherness
Meeting a man who is lovable and sweet
The greatest ever man that I could ever meet

At days end I watch the sunset
I am so glad in the way we met
When I look at you, you're such a delight
You make me feel that everything is alright

You always put a smile on my face
Make my heart pound, at a fast pace
You have a beautiful soul and a beautiful mind
I believe that I had made a magical find

Knowing that we are truly remarkable
We make each other feel so very comfortable
With both ouf our hearts, we are tough and strong
We do bounce back when things go wrong

As I am seeing this bright little light
With you in the centre, it feels so right
Whispering beautiful words in each others ear
Just being so close for you are my dear

Your love is powerful when you give me a kiss
A love that is beautiful and so full of bliss
Returning your love, I give you my heart
Don't think of a day for when we part

The kisses you give are soft and tender
I can't resist, so I surrender
To your loving kisses and magical charms
I will be forever in your arms

Every single day, I feel so much love
You're with me too as we fly up above
The love I feel is so very real
You have a heart of gold and made of steal

Thinking about you, thinking about me
There is no other place I would rather be
With our love and friendship we will survive -
Because of what we do, we do it with drive

For you are my king and I am your queen
All the magical things we do and what we have seen
It doesn't matter what month of the year
I love you so much, for you are my dear

I can feel the love as much as there can be
So closer moments, beautiful feelings towards me
While we are together, we show love and affection
Could our love see the everlasting direction?

My Bride of the Black Dress

My bride of the black dress,
Come to me my dear,
Take my hand and kiss me,
My beloved bride,
Soon the wedding will start,
And we shall be wed,
Now wait for me,
Wait for me,
My love is never ending,
Your deathly white skin,
And boney arms are beautiful to me,
So wait for me my bride,
I shall join you soon enough,
But first let me remove this dagger from your heart,
My beautiful bride of the black dress,
Our heaven awaits.

She Knows Me

Everything I ever want
Everything I do
She knows before I ever say
Because she loves me, too

All the wishes that I have
The many dreams I dare
She knows them all and smiles with me
Because she really cares

My imperfections are lost on her
As she sees within my soul
She knows me well, this friend of mine
She’s there and makes me whole

Sometimes I can feel incomplete
So converse with her, I will
She makes me feel the good feelings
Until I have my fill

Ever Lasting Love

Since you’ve come into my life everything has been so new.
I never thought I had it in me to love another the way I love you.
You’ve opened my eyes and given me what I desire.
That’s why when I see your precious face its sets my soul on fire.
Doubts lead to patience which lead to understanding.
At times we both can be so damn demanding.
Tears meet with fears.
Battles with severe emotions.
Which clearly showed how much we’ve devoted.
My heart yearns your attention and affection. 
Take one look and there’s your reflection.
Living without you is impossible and so unreal.
Loyalty, honesty, and sacrifice seals the deal.

Your Mistake

'Love is patient'
'Love is kind'
The thought of love
Can turn you blind.

But... Now we must
Take some steps
To verify those
Deep regrets.

The first problem you see
Was that. . .
He lied about
You being fat

That in turn 
Led ya to
Beleiving that
He 'accepted' you.

Mirrors were made
For a darn good reason
And thinking you are nothing special
Is high, high treason...

But no!
He's perfect
And no! He's kind
Seriouslly sister
You've lost your mind.

The recipe to love Is that
You have to love your self.
It's not about your facial features
Or the size of ya belt.

The man should be a rock to lean on
And not! A heartless swine.
So please next time. Do pick him wisely
Make sure he has a spine!

You Touched My Heart

Oh how sweet and beautiful are the words
that you say to me, they stick to my soul
like honey to a bee.  They move me,
they soothe me, they let me live, for
it is you that I need and my heart
I will give.

You touched me like I never have
felt before, you start my heart breathing
so fast until I can hardly let go.
I feel your words like sand on a beach
they are still in my head and will never
decease.  Your words are so brand
new and alive, for they are the only
thing that is helping me to survive.

You touched my heart like no other I have
known, the way in which you love me
I wil never do you no harm.  Your words
is like an ocean running free, all I want
them to do is pour all over me.

You touched my heart like a child playing
with a toy, he love it so much because
it brings him so much joy. That is how 
you touch my heart, giving and bringing
me so much joy, it makes me feel like
a child with his new toy.

You touched my heart every day of my
life, that is why I do not care about all
the sacrifice. I wil do everything to make
you happy just as long as I know I am
the apple of your eye and that you will
do or say nothing to make me
cry.

You touched my heart from this day
forward, there can never be another
you because you are what I need and
it is me for you and you for me that
is the only way it is going to be.
you touched my heart.

Sweet and Kissable

Sweet and tender, they seal a bond,
Movements caress preciously to all.
With trembles, they will call.
Especially of yours I am fond.
They cast spell like a wizard’s wand.
Captured I was, when I saw.
My heart tied in a ball.
Pressing onward I respond.

Lips such as yours are my delight.
When ours meet, emotional treat,
Sensual feelings ever so bright,
Ardor expands without defeat.
Each kiss of morning or night,
Our souls locked, lovers complete.

Did The Lord Build Your House

Did The Lord Build Your House? This house of ours is “plain.” But is still standing. We’re “simple folks...” By many people’s understanding… We may not have much of what is “socially appealing”… But we have love in our hearts. And this is a good feeling! We may not be “wrapped up” in much of this world’s entertainment. But we seek God’s peace and a desire for contentment. We, as a family, have one purpose and “calling” in mind. To seek God’s ways of being merciful and kind… Each day we pray with much thankfulness in our hearts… For this is where happiness and gratitude starts! We’re thankful to the Lord for his unfailing grace… And for keeping us together in this special place… We’re blessed to have a God who is truly worth finding. His word in our lives is precious and worth memorizing! “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it!” God must rule and reign… So his love can completely fill it!

The Speed of Life

In the childhood home her mother spins her child
Round and round we go happiness seems to overflow
And the childhood  goes by; faster, faster

A growing child with so much energy running and having fun
Careless and free he runs across the yard
He is growing up; faster, faster

Only in middle school and already a rebel
Sticking up for a friend and getting in a fight
He has courage but still he runs; faster, faster

High school has come at last
The odd man out he cries for attention
Into depression he spirals; faster, faster

At the high school prom he meets a girl
The hearts beet together and the music beats in their ears
They are falling madly in love; faster, faster

Barely a year and a kid on the way
To work and back the same routine, every hour, every day
A wedding is coming closer; faster, faster

So far a happy life, and a good career
They buy a home and outside he spins his child
Another childhood is going by; faster, faster

His life was long another one has started from it
But now the ambulance move; faster, faster
And his heartbeat fails; slower, slower

Watercolor love

Like watercolor pictures left out in the rain
Our colors have mingled,yet the originals still remain.
Two watercolor paintings without frames,
Became one picture over time,
Yet two of us still there.
Our colors blended naturally,
Now all the hues are shared.
I love your colors intermixed with mine:
Together they have made a new design.
A Watercolor picture painted by the rain,
We may go, but our Watercolor Love will still remain

Springtime Affections

My love, your breath, fresh as a spring breeze,
Caresses my face, with a wondrous tone,
As your sweet lips, approach mine, we moan.
For expectation, of such pleasurable tease,
For there is no time, for emotions to please,
Our brief moments, are barely, only a loan.
For passion delivers, future beautifully alone,
Our ecstasies of movements together, appease.

After spring, before the heat of summer time,
Our ardor grows; grows within each heart.
Our touch, Heavens blessing, to each other,
These moments, hours, days have no crime.
Together forever, our souls, never part,
Our spirits are free, to love; never smother.

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

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.

The Happy Dress

It’s a mother-in-law’s right, her prerogative 
To ‘drop in’ on her son almost any time,
But a mother-in-law should always be prepared
For almost anything she may find.

So, Mother Cready dropped in unannounced;
But as she approached her son’s front door,
Suddenly it opened.  “Ta Da!  Do you like my happy dress?”
His young wife stood there in her ‘all in all’…nothing more.

“Oh, my word!” Mother Cready exclaimed with surprise.
“Why are you naked?  Are you insane?”
Just as surprised, the young wife pulled her inside.
“Please, Mother Cready…if you’ll just let me explain.

You see, when Mac has had a rough day,
When he’s been under a lot of stress,
Sometimes I meet him at the door
With a smile and a kiss in my happy dress.

It always relaxes him and makes him happy,
Then he makes me very happy too.
It works for Mac and me, Mother Cready;
Maybe it would work for you.”

“We’re too old for such.” scoffed Mother Cready.
“Perhaps if we were young like the two of you.”
But, on her way home, she decided
She was definitely going to try it too.

So, she bathed and put on some nice perfume,
Fixed her make-up and her hair.
She was thinking some very sexy thoughts,
But she had to hurry…no time to spare.

She heard her husband’s car in the driveway;
And as he approached their front door,
She threw it open.  “Ta Da! Do you like my happy dress?"
She stood there in her ‘all in all’…nothing more.

She saw a little grimace cross his face,
But that was not the worst.
Then he said, “I appreciate your happy dress, my dear;
But maybe you should have ironed it first.”

ALTERNATE LAST VERSE

“Well…your ‘happy dress’ could use some ironing;
But my birthday suit could use some starch.”
He kissed her. “Bet you and I can work it out.”;
And off to bed they marched.

Together,Forever

I call it a blessing from above
And I know everyone wants this to have
Everyone is looking for it
But only few can found it

I'm lucky I'm one of that few
And I've been blessed to found true love in you
It's like a dream came true
To be loved by the guy I loved too

To you,I felt the undefined happiness
For me,for all the guys you are the best!
And I want you to stay for the rest of my life
Coz' I really need someone like you in my life

I consider you as a blessing sweetheart
So I give to you my sincere HEART
I love you forever
And I hope that God will guide us to be together..forever

My Beloved

Hey Mr. Editor,
It's not very often we hear true stories of enduring Love that grows with time. I can 
hear the cynic groan as I write this, but it's a good human interest story and I 
thought a good one for the coming of spring, a time of new birth and new beginings. 
There is a couple who met while in school, years ago.  After graduation they both 
were seperated by thousands of miles; both got married to different people 
sometime later and raised their young families.  All this time their love remained 
silent, waiting, yet strong.  Today, their children are adults and about to venture on 
their own lives. Reconnected once more, perhaps by fate, they have planned to wed 
very soon.  I was asked by the Bride-to-be, a dear friend, to write a poem on her 
behalf which she would read to her Groom at their Wedding Ceremony. I was truly 
honored and graciously obliged. It's titled,"My Beloved.  Thank you for your 
consideration of my request.

My Beloved, Today, I can not say that dreams do not sprout wings! Nor will I ever accuse time of being an adversary Not when I know that within its grasp lies our past, present and future Today, my heart is full and overflowing with abundant joy! Gazing into your beautiful soul, I glimpse love’s sparkling reflection Streaming like a river, endless, into vast ocean tides And I stand in awe of God’s everlasting love and providence The sweetest portion of which we have come to taste! For so long I have waited! How I have yearned for this moment When I would pledge life and love to you; become one flesh, one heart! One heart that will bleed no more as nothing can stand between us I will lose myself in you and you in me forever! No longer will dreams haunt our lonely nights And I will not have to walk this side of Heaven without you When I consider the paths which we have traveled I marvel and smile, as now it is clear - they were leading us to, this day! In the silence of a thousand nights my prayers to heaven took flight And though seasons of yesterdays came only to fade away Time, it seemed, had shelved my fervent plea ‘Til sweet destiny obliged, leading me to the one who holds my heart My Beloved, my husband, my best friend, and companion, Our love has arrived; our single journey begins today!

In The Mood

                        ~In The Mood For Love~
                    
With a candle light & a glass of champagne after a year 
of our marriage we came back to the same garden where 
we met and fell in love a promise we will keep 
each anniversary.

Today still in the mood for love sitting listening to sounds 
of music while our lips met kissing to cool our hunger for 
making love at the end of this unforgettable evening

He was so much in this mood of repeating what he told me
the day we met.
When I am with you,the sun will wake up the sky will welcome 
you,look out the window and see the sea a pale blue under a blue sky. 
God I`m happy to be with you my brain is my own,I feel vibrant,
I feel alive,thank you world.

When I am with you, I love every grain of sand, every drop of water,
every bit of air I breath, I love every image that my eyes are blessed 
to watch, every bird that flies across the sky, I feel alive again.

I feel in the mood of living endlessly,I feel softness back in my heart,
I feel I can be generous to give,give,because I am so full of happiness,
I feel in the mood of loving you more & more.

When I am with you,every hour has beauty and meaning,one after
the other they form a day,a night,another day,another night,
and it all has a purpose,It all means consistency .
Do you remember?Yes my darling,I do.

When I am here with you,I feel if I listen, I will hear answers,If I look,
I will see truth,I am so happy to share my feelings with you because 
I know you will understand,I want so much for you to experience the 
power of my feelings towards you. 

We never pass through lifeless moments when we are together,
we both stay awake, alive,moments that wouldn't ever be wiped out, 
they remain engraved in our heart. 

Here,your approach was a blessing to both of us. We were sitting in a 
crowded area,yet we were alone, we could both hear only the muteness 
that surrounded our encounter.Oh the beauty when your lips are wet,
you purposely put me in the mood for love eternally.

Summer Memories From The Tree of Life

Summer season was  my childhood’s  greatest fun  time,
We played with toys out of a coconut tree which is a tree of life,
We  built  little houses beautifully and so high as we climbed
Like a flying trapeze  on its leaves,  we swung so high.

We played with toys made of coconut trees, the tree of life,
My playmates joined me in building  little houses using a dull knife,
Out of its leaves and midribs, we made walls, roofs and doors,
Pretended as good cooks with its coconut shells  and fruits.

My playmates joined  me in building little houses using a dull knife
Pretended  to live together as families with husband and wife,
I took the role of an elder sister in our little comfortable house
I combed the hair of a younger sibling with a coco midrib brush.

Pretended to live together as families with a husband and wife
Just like small neighborhood or community along the riverside
We chose one of the eldest playmates to be the group captain,
The leader of  unity and cooperation in building more tents.

Just like small neighborhood or community along the riverside
We helped one another as piles of coco leaves we made as rides,
We made unique toys out of leaves and roots as much as we could
Like trumpets when blown, we covered our ears for its loud sound.

We helped one another as piles of coco leaves we made as a ride
We webbed balls, insects and other toys for a surprise to hide,
When the captain signaled to show who's the most  had a reward
Then ran with our wind vanes to the beach and marched forward.

We webbed  balls, insects and other toys for a surprise to hide
We played with toys out of a coconut tree which is a tree of life,
When the captain signaled us to show  the most  had a reward
A wonderful  summer  memory  from a Tree of Life I've ever had!


Sept. 11,2012

Note: The coconut trees are considered the “Trees of Life”. They can provide almost all the things we need like shelter, clothing, foods and others. So, let us preserve coconut trees! They are very helpful but be careful because they are also  risky during typhoons, LOL.   There are many coconut trees in our backyard especially along the riverside connecting to the beach. These trees had added so much joy on summer time during my  childhood years/graders.

Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love

A small poem “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” wrote by Mrs. Madhavi. Suyog. Pagare

 “Thirsty Feeling about Nature and love” 

Seating nearby valley side,
Astonished by seeing a nature's serene beauty. 
Amidst Grassy hills,
zigzagically mounted on the stupefying homeland.
Pristine Water, Sliding from the highest peak,
Flowing in its own way,
Wondering about its challenging destiny.
Love the way you are.
I owe you for myself!!

Wind's whispered, Cheering in its ain way.
Chanting of music beats,
Recited with a soothing intonation.
Birds speaking eloquently..
Dazzling due to marvellous rainbow..
Love the way you are,
I owe you for myself!!

Amazing and enamoured environment aroused my emotions,
Feeling Shy to express.
Missing my dream person,my Mr.Adam.
Versatile persona where are you?
Come here and hug me.
Fuel me up with spirit.
Gift me a smile.
Until forever fades away, Endure me.
Love the way you are..
I owe you for myself!!

Finished dropping stones in water.
Gladly waiting for your arrival.
Testing patience is all enough now.
Wanted to feel the gist of love.
Desire to fulfil wish with pure heart and soul.
Auspicious moments provoking to capture 
Love the way you are, 
I owe you for myself

Whispers upon a morning breeze

Whispers upon a morning breeze
gently caresses the awakening flowers
and leaves on the flourishing trees
just like a lovers warm soft tender touch
after a night of passion
and making love
now just smouldering embers
between two kindred hearts
who discovered the true meaning
of giving sharing and caring
and beauty
in the sanctity 
of sacred eternal love.

Autumn's Glow

A cool mist hovers o'er water lilies on the sleepy pond And bathed in declining sunrays is a blossoming bond of love Through the crowded park they go oblivious to noise around them Warm hands brush, then slowly lock, as heartfelt thoughts lay bear Sweet murmurings softly fall like autumn’s golden leaves Upon the grassy knoll beneath wise, old oak trees, listening While the crisp wind churns, envious, as he steadily blows Quite unaware is he, Autumn love has taken its hold While mischevious Cupid, chuckles with glee at his work, well done A perfect hit! Once two friends; now two hearts made one! Lost In their reverie, a beautiful world of their own Stealing kisses while watching the last geese fly home. ~*~

A Wedding Vow

Corpulent cottagers clapping like clowns

Merry mad munchers of muffins and mirth

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".

HAVE YOU EVER DANCED WITH YOURSELF

Have you ever danced with yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
Somehow, it just felt right,
Although it was dark and it was late.

I checked the weather forecast of my heart
And the climate of my soul marks: “Happiness”,
An unbelievable sense of joyfulness
That will stay within me, even if we are apart.

Because we were made for each other,
“apart” simply means “I’ll be right back”.
It’d be silly to turn our backs
On this great combination of lovers.

Lovers in love, now and forever.
Sharing dreams and goals that we know will come true,
Since anything is possible if I am with you,
Sharing a life in which fate brought us together.

Have you ever smiled at yourself?
I have.  I did it tonight.
And it feels perfectly right
To be yours and to enjoy being under your spell.

 
(What I’m really saying is: I’m in love…
 What I’m really saying is: I love you.)

FOREVERMORE

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU

What Does Marriage Mean to YOU?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sleep Peacefully My Love

Rest soundly my love, and peacefully too,
Know that through the night's hours I will be here with you.
May sweet dreams invade your head,
As you sleep soundly in our marriage bed.
Whilst you dream,
Dream of only me.
Dream of the soft hands that hold you close,
Let your world be colored by the tints of rose...
And hear only soft whispers spoken softly in prose.
But if you should begin to quake in fright,
Be reassured that I shall be here to hold you tight.
I shall move my lips across your cheek,
And dry the tears that doth streak.
Hopefully you will sleep peacefully with me here,
Just knowing I am near.
So sleep easily and know that when you open your beautiful eyes,
I will be here with you, our hands and hearts forever entwined.

4 Jon On Our 22nd Wedding Anniversary

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes
    like spring-time rain

Your tears smell
    like sweet lemon flower petals

Your voice looks
    so 
    deeply 
    majestic

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
is entirely, completely,
embracingly

Sen-sational!

Color Dance

Blood runs red in every race
War bring tears to every creed
Hunger felt by every being
Love desired by every heart
 
Green envy or generosity
Vengeful snares and forgiving
Nightmares give desires to dream
Dancing twixt joy & despair
 
Colorful array of emotions
So much in common
Do you see me in you
Your reflection in me?
 
We are  rainbow children 
Painting the canvas of life
Compassion sees the art
In the unique dance of us

A Happily Ever After Marriage

There once was a poet extraordinaire,
Who composed sweet poetry with great care. 
She wanted to find true love.
So, she prayed to God above.
He swiftly answered, “Sweetheart, you must forbear.”

Forbearance was her lonely heart’s nightmare.
She was a passionate woman with flare.
Singing in a high octave.
Counting petals of foxglove.
She drank martinis alone in her lair.

A brilliant mind with hope and a prayer,
Resting her head on a lonely armchair.
Praising spirits up above,
She heard Ron’s voice, cute white dove.
Alas, she found him…marriage…love so fair.

My Future Generation

I can act insane
But DO NOT 
Make me feel worthless

I belong in God’s family
He will bless my future generation

Don’t punish me for
Being myself –
Don’t envy my glee 

I can act like an
Adult, but I’d 
Prefer to have joy…

Not stress…
That piles upon us in our 
Everyday lives

Being childlike is

A rare beauty – 

No one prizes it…

No one came across it…

In this lifetime…

I can laugh all day
I can make you smile
If you’d accept my 
Childlike dreams of mine
Don’t treat me like a sick swine

Renew my young heart
Give me the ability 
To kill the old man…

I have my place in God’s family
He’ll be adored and glorified 
We’ll exchange prayers and hugs  
By my future generation

I beg of you – 
Don’t kill my childlike mentality
I’ll behave myself…
I’m positively sure that I’ll make you happy

I’ll still have pieces of a child in me

And pass it on to my future generation…

A Magnificent Moment

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

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

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

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

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

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

You

I caress you in my arms
and your beauty alarms me...
your soft skin disarms me
and your musical voice charms me...
I lose myself within you
everytime our lovemaking begins a new...
And I knew in that moment
that I had to vent my sentiments
I love you and my essence would plead too
that I drink you, I eat you, and I breath you
...I need you!...

Witnesses To Sinners



I can't hear the words as they come from my mouth
I can't hear the screams as they work their way out
As I write all is seen is a blur and blank moment and
Once recovered sensed the words were written,not 
Even a look to see what was written only to know it
Was there.Sleepless night,taunt  filled faces horde my
Dreams.Have this made me fall so low no longer am I
Am I able to stand on my own to feet.How many times 
Will you make me cry before claiming only to being a 
Witness in a crime,your crime. Putting on that face
Working the crowds with amazing easily,how I hate you
Yes all the thing I think about revolve around you.
How many times have I witness myself wound my self
With your blade? As though under a spell doing as order
Without a cry to the world what made me so diligent ?
But no longer can you be a witness,No longer can I be 
A witness to these crimes that been committed.Be us both
Sinners be us both lovers be that we both be cursed 
We shall witness our sins become whole and the love in
Which we share spread further and further like the flames 
Of hades. May there be peace for sinners in the next world.
We are both witnesses and at the same time 
We are both sinners one day to become consumed by our
Own darkness how far will we fall until that moment comes?
May we be good may we be bad may we fall may we live may 
May we die or carry on we are the Witnesses We are the Sinners
To this world and the next.

Growing In Years

He is my gentle seduction
that makes me lighter than air
he holds onto me firmly
so I won't up and disappear

Not that I don't love him
but in fact, I love him so dear
but remember, I told you, 
he makes me lighter than air

He has to be my angel
God sent me, I, unaware
for years I stopped dreaming
I guess out of lonely fear

But today, I woke from dreaming,with him kissing my ear
how perfect our love is, in our older years
enjoying those simpler things like cooking
fishing or just holding the other near

He is my handsome husband
the father of my children, our truest bliss
soon the grandfather to the symbol
of all these growing in loving years

My A - Z Affairs

All my energy went into pleasing the other,
belatedly I’ve realized he didn’t bother.
Cozier prospects have lured him from afar.
Doors miraculously opened and left ajar,
empowering me to hold my head high,
for now I’m fending for myself and fly.
Going wherever I pleased, whenever,
holding council with the artistic, clever.
“Intellectually challenged” his badge; 
Joker and the jester: general adage.
Kindness has been bestowed on me.
Love and compassion had set me free.
Meeting you – my perfect match,
never thinking of myself as a catch.
Over the moon I was the day we met,
perhaps a bit apprehensive and did fret.
Questioning – understandably on my guard;  
responding to you, my heart no longer hard.
Softly spoken and a perfect gentleman.
Tears are not the prerogative of woman.
Unconditional love offered from the onset,
vowing to cherish and honour – future set.
Wedding bells soon rang; custom never fail.
Xebec restored and ready for pleasure sail:
You’ve  the ability to amaze, do not scoff.
Zeal, on your part, finally had paid off.

TOGETHER

Me with you and you with me
You are what set me free
Together we can face our fear 
Our love can take us any where 
You make my world complete,
Together always you and me. 
Through sickness and in health 
In poverty or in wealth 
We are unstoppable 
But so loveable
Without any reason
Anytime or any season
We love each other, 
Care for one another
Together forever in harmony 
Once we are together things fall into place and we are happy 
In anger or in kindness
Whether all seeing or in blindness
Together we are strong
Loving hearts keeps us young
Yes now my dream has come true 
Now I can be happy and be with you

And I trust God for everything
 
On this day..
I'll promise to love you always

No matter what we may face in future
 
On this day..
I'll promise that I'll be with you until we grow old
And You are better than anything you can compare in this world.

A Good Thing

He that finds a wife,

Finds a good thing.

He who is willing to lose His life,

For his really loves her

Like Christ did the church.

He who really provides for her

Has grand blessings in store.

Proverbs 18: 22  explains it

For you; "He who finds a

Wife finds a good thing,

And obtains favor from

The Lord. In other words,

A wife is two rewards

In one. She is a helper

And you from God; you

Gain from giving the right

Woman your last name.

The scripture Proverbs 5:18

States clearly that "  May

Your fountain be blessed,

And may you rejoice in your

Young wife." As long as he

Is thankful to God for your

Wife and treat her right.

He'll be blessed in life.

He who spends time with her,

In the presence of God,

Is living the life divine.

He who praises his wife,

Will blessed for the rest,

Of his life. He who prays

With and for her will appreciate,

Her true worth.The greatness,

Of his wife makes his soul sings.

He adores the joy to him that,

She brings. He cherishes the

Good thing like Christ cherishes

The Church. He reminds her,

For sure that she is his good thing,

And he will love her and her only.

He treats her as his own body.

His love flows to her for life.

He's glad that he found a good thing,

Because when he did, he found his wife.

 

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord." Proverbs 
18:22

"May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice   in your young wife. Proverbs 
5:18

Human or Humane

Human or Humane – Zamreen Zarook
 
The precious creature of the divine lord,
One differ from other as the playings of harpsichord,
Every single was a pass chord,
So as to go for their fatal reward.

Muscular system is a part,
Nervous system is an art,
Skeleton system is again a handcraft,
Things matters on the beauty of the heart.

Showing kindness and sympathy,
You become a man of empathy,
This leads to be healthy and wealthy,
Where as it makes your life lengthy.

Dummy body is human,
Love and kindness within it is the humane,
decide and alter your membrane,
Before you reach the torture of the hurricane.

This Thing Called Love

Twas just the greatest treasure,

that Mankind has ever found. 

Yet its bounty is not hidden inside a chest, 

nor buried underground, 

It won,t be all piled up and shining in a mound, 

You won,t need a key to unlock it, 

in fact it,s not even bound, 

Yet it can be found, 

by just about anyone, 

from a panda to a hound, 

You do not need x-ray eyesight, 

nor ears that hear the slightest sound, 

No, this thing-a-ling almost anyone can bring, 

In fact its all around. 

It comes from deep, deep, deep inside, 

with blessings from the Man above, 

It comes sometimes in an instant, 

sometimes it nestles in like a glove, 

What is this one thing, 

that makes you want to sing, 

and live peacefully like the dove, 

It introduces all Queens to her King, 

Why of course, 

this thing is Love.

One Day

An unlikely couple
with that rare happiness you only see in movies


her hand is cupped in his lovingly
and his smile is so genuine it could outshine a full moon

their conversation is held strictly in their blissful gazes
but what they say is obvious

for them there is no other existence
no other life but the other

and even as they grow old
gracefully, with now wrinkled smiles

there is no couple like them
as if he were Adam, and she Eve

I watch them daily
with hope of a love only to be compared
by the difference between the heat of a steaming cup of joe
and a glass of ice water dripping with condensation

to have bliss like them
I would...No, I will be complete

One Day

The Flames Of Love

I feel the flames of love ignite, Burning me to my very core, As it blazes on into the night; Deep in my heart I know it’s right, I’ve never felt like this before; I feel the flames of love ignite; Sweat glistens in the fire light, And my senses tingle for what’s in store, As it blazes on into the night; Your kisses on my skin, alight; It leaves me begging for more and more, I feel the flames of love ignite; My passion drives me to my height, And in fervor we explore, As it blazes on into the night; We can’t hold back now anymore, In unison our bodies soar; I feel the flames of love ignite, As it blazes on into the night.

No Measure of Time

Unspoken words linger in the depth of souls
Preserved with reverence… a moment to unfold
In classic silence, weary eyes stare long, hard; deep 
Hands gently pairing, find each other, like ripe fruit to reap

Mellow warm embrace, the misty eyes and hearts race in time
 Forever to savor, this moment sublime
When love need speak no word to amplify its pleasure
And true love bears time no measure

Soon, furrows will lie upon your brow; fine silver strands highlight my curls
Yet, for always, we will forever be… this boy and girl!

What I Look For In A Home


I’m sure that home to many has a different meaning. It depends what kind of life they’ve been receiving. There are those with memories of hurt and pain. Some may not want to mention their families name. Others have childhood memories they are fond of. They may have a family that they’re proud of! I think that in many cases, home is not what people see. It has a lot of importance. Both to you and me! What home means to me is to have our family together. And ask the Lord to bless it, with his love forever! God gave me a wife and children to take care of. May I not do things that I’d be ashamed of! I invite YOU Jesus, to be the head of our home! May we come together as a family, around your throne! May our family serve one another as we should. May the truths of God’s word be applied and understood! May the Lord help us to get along, with our imperfections. May God’s word be our “road map,” for needed direction! There’s no perfect home. Believe me! I know it! When it comes to family time… We all need to show it! Unless the lord builds the home… They labor in vain that build it! Let’s seek God’s blessing! So his love can completely fill it! Please come Jesus! And fill our home today! May our home be honored by what we do and say! By Jim Pemberton

Changing Life's Script into a Happy Saga

Life is a happy adventure when you reach your dreams.
Finding you, my Ingrid, has filled my days with sunbeams.
Two hearts that God has bound together as one, are we.
Laughing and playing, walking through life, soul mates, spirits free!
I love you.
Are we not drawn onward to new era? 
Changing life’s script into a happy saga -
Before you, I walked through life with sorrow, bleakly.
Many years of loneliness, I had to face bravely.
I thank God above you came to Florida from Norway.
One day in my doorway, mayday became a parfait…stay!
True love arrived, unplanned.
I wanna hold your hand.
Always and forever, our true hearts sing in cadence.
We agreed; pledged our love with secure assurance. 
Time is bursting with thought, serenity…joy.
Happy tears fill my eyes for I am not your toy.
When I feel like I am running on empty, you take my hand.
You and I strolling through life in our woodland.-
New tingling hearts embrace their sweetest spark.

Sexy Kiss

We share a look from across the room and I saunter into your arms,
No matter how hard I try to defy, I can never resist your charms;

You slip a hand behind my head and drag me into your kiss,
You tantalize my senses as I lose myself to bliss;

Desire takes over my body as you take my breath away,
We stand in utter silence, we’ve nothing left to say;

There is an overpowering smell of whiskey and cheap perfume,
But locked in a passionate kiss, we’re alone in the crowded room;

Your kisses taste so potent, I savor the exotic flavor of you,
Your intoxicating to my senses, like the sweetest morning dew;

Wrapped in a fervent embrace, our bodies meld to form one;
I lose myself to you and it’s only just begun...

My Husband

My Husband!
My Husband is the man of my dreams, my fantasies, and so much more. He can take my breath away with just a whisper of things to come. I can’t help but look at him and think my husband; the man of my life, forever mine.
My husband looks and acts professional as he lectures to a large group of people. They seem to linger on his every word learning as much as possible in the allotted time with him. He is smart and well-dressed but underneath a wild side that I know so well is there waiting to come out.
My husband playing while kayaking; splashing like only best friends and lovers would do. A kid at heart he shares his lunch and takes pictures to show his friends. He wants the world to know how fun it was and we plan to go again. So proud am I of my husband, best friend, and lover.
My husband has helped so many of my dreams come true. If you can dream it, then you can do it he would say. As frustration came, he my husband and fantasy would rescue me. My husband set my dreams soaring high as together we found a place the world could never touch us!
My husband is my soul mate and so much more that words can’t describe. Nothing can take him from me; for out of my dreams and into my life made special for me, my husband is everything I could ever want or need. Drawn to him somehow night and day our hearts beat as one. Together nothing is impossible as we share a love and bond that not even in death will we part. Our souls will hold one another forever!

Men...The Opposite Sex

Men are unique, in their own way
Many stay young, and want to play.
Some work so hard, at what they do
To make our dreams, and wishes true.

Hidden talents, they do not show
Until you learn, and get to know.
Juggle or dance, and some can sing
Feelings of awe, sometimes they bring.

Hard to show, their romantic side
Stays bottled up, from us they hide.
Love prevails, their shyness gone
God had it planned, and wasn't wrong.

' Intimacy In Verse (1) ... '

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

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

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

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

          … Intimacy …

Missing You

Missing you is like feelings of thee morning dew. The very first time I glanced at you, something like a widow a woman that husband has died. Wishing we had just a little more time. Wishful thinking believing everything you ever said was true shows how bad I want to be with you. Reminiscing over here dwelling on the past, indicating a desire of admiration I grasp. Adoration and appreciation is what I feel for you, longing suffering missing and enduring the lost just to speak to you. From morning till midnight, sunset to sunrise moving into the afternoon time I’m missing you. Arousing emotional response in motion missing you is my religion. My system of belief, therefor you’re an apostle sent by Christ making me a flock of one in your missionary. Leaving me with anxiety and tension I stay missing. Impatient for your fulfillment, missing you is an addiction and psychological dependence. Needing to see you even for a minute, in a recession I remain unchanged retain missing you.

Take a seat,
I’ll teach you what it is to feel-
Heat,
In your backbone,
I need a microphone,
To tell of your appeal,
I feel,
Closer to you each day,
I pray,
To continue this journey of ours,
So far,
We’ve progressed,
Through violence and stress,
Our worst and our best,
We share,
I’d spare,
You,
Of my rage,
I feel caged,
Sometimes,
In my mind,
Since I am yours,
And you are mine,
Our souls together,
Forever?
Forever,
I feed the need,
To succeed,
With you by my side,
I’m in for a ride,
All kidding aside,
Your love lets me float,
I wrote,
This for my man,
So he’ll understand,
What I feel,
So utterly real,
I utter,
And stutter,
One day we’ll walk,
Down the aisle,
For a mile,
On white sand beach,
Confidence in the reach,
Of our hearts,
To each others.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

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

The Heat of the 70s

The house is empty, my husband is at work, I am sitting with my dog just relaxing when PBS television broadcasts a music special. Oh all those Motown tunes from the 1970s, Now that’s hotter than hot, I feel the heat rise. The Commadores, Stylistics and Patti LaBelle, I am singing, She’s a brick house and feeling hot, Moving my hips and swaying to the great music, Still remembering all the words and those feelings. The memories it evokes is only of pure passion, The whole decade provided a serenade of love. You could fall in love so fast with the right song, Every song I hear elicits a treasured memory. The Discos were the highlight of the weekend, Spending the nights dancing, driving the men wild. The bump and grind was probably the best dance, Although a good jive would always make your night. Earth, Wind and Fire can really bring on a burn, Al Greene just makes me want to cuddle by a fire, Wow its getting warm in here, see what I mean. I think I’ll tape this show and put it on tomorrow night, So I can take my husband back and feel the heat.

Your Smile

Oh how caring your smile can be, it always get the best of me.
Your smile is filled with so much love and grace, it puts me in a daze.
It is so radiant and bright it is truly uplifting and is certainly a delight.
Oh your smile is lovable as can be, it always get next to me.

My heart has satisfaction

You are home
now the door closes,
Your day has been busy in the city.

Supper is on the table 
you eat silently looking at me
Smiling taking my hand in yours.

It is quiet you say this is my refugee from
the craziness of the city, the children run to you
climbing in your lap letting you know you're loved.

You help them with baths and tuck them in tightly.
Then you come sit by me and hold me in your 
arms and say I Love You Forever.

We go out side sitting hand in hand watching the
falling stars, listening to the crickets, and the
moon lighting up all the things around.

We do not need words between us
we know what we think, how we feel 
I look over at him smiling he is asleep
after a long day of work.

My heart has satisfaction knowing that I am a very
Blessed woman, I do not know what it is I did so
right but what ever it was I am glad I did it.

If Only

If I could spend my whole life with you,
It will only be a dream, because no such thing is true.
If no one open's their heart all the way through.
       How can I ever really give my heart to you? 
If I did you wouldn't have felt the pain you do.
Therefor no need to say sorry,
we just say it, because we know it's not true.
We say it just to get you through,
to have, to behold, the pain I gave you!
If  you should ever feel like this is your last breath,
to love, is to lay to rest.
It can feel worse than any death.
A women romancer is truly the best!
I've sacrifice nothing making you feel like you do,
but you have to learn to give credit, to where credit is due! 
Stimulating of the heart, Is to know where to start.
         My devotion is to myself,
I have to love me, before loving any one else
I'm done with the burden of pain, to have me, it's to what you'll gain.
To walk beside me, to never deny me. To love me, is to live as one.
For you can now, feel just where I come from.
To pave a new way, to this unacquainted highway.
         Intimacy is thee only thing I could offer to you.
For you could only be mine, no other friend will do.
To have you all to myself, is to deprive,
from liberty, to imprison, to confine to me. To surrender your heart,
thorough thick and, thin. To never let any other lover in,
to whom I'm your only friend, from the start till thee very end.
         To vow to never give away your heart, if we do break apart.
If I shall ever feel the love you do for me, I promise to love you for eternity!
To never have to say I'm sorry, for the love I'll feel for you.
For I could never put you through!
To  have a good women by your side, is to tell the truth, even if it make's me cry.
That's what it will take for you can be a real man.
To stand tall, to walk with pride, for a real man shouldn't have to lie.
If it should ever feel like it's way to hard, and we took this new found love way to far...
           Reminiscence of that day,
that I began to play thee O' Jays, when I used to be your girl,
till you opened my eyes to this cruel world.
I would like to start all over again, can you change my mind, to just go back in time.
For to truly love someone, is to let them free. 
To find each other again, it was truly meant to be!
To say this is true love, shall ever be a mystery.
For there's no paradise, in this so called world we call life.
     Until thee very day you make me your wife!

You and I

Close your eyes  and envision me-
As a Rose, blossoming, in your Garden, with love's fragrance, free.
Put your hand in mine and we shall walk side by side
To realms never imagined possible by mortal minds.

Dream with me and close your mind to others, as we are meant to dwell-
Under the guidance of God's Divine , harmonious, marital veil.

Permeate my spirit and we will be ONE cohesive bonding, unbeatable, together 
until this life is done.

Keep me only as the "apple of your eye" as I shall you so that we to each other 
shall remain always faithful and true.

Between You and I, there shall only exist attributes of love, commitment, 
understanding with openness-
No deception shall ever embark our door-
For we have connected our hearts with the everlasting flow of Love's dewdrops 
that shall aid us to grow
                                             in strength
                                                      in courage

To depths and heights of heavenly bliss.

Brilliant Month Of April

Upon the stand at the entrance of our home I find a new vase.
Beside it a box full of yellow and red Daisies laying upon a bed 
of Sweet peas.
As I look for the card there amongst the flowers I find a little
maroon box.
I open the box to find yet another brilliant diamond which I may
have set into a ring, pendant, or another jewelry piece.
My present from my hubby of my birthstone and flowers to
celebrate my birth on April 7th each year.
All come together with the card that reads "I love you more each year"

So This Is Love

So this is love,
when I look upon my beloved sleeping contentedly, 
cooing like a dove,
a smile forms, memories flood,
growing closer with each passing year,
unaware of the changes ageing shows clear,
your beauty eternally imprinted upon my mind
imprinted throughout time

The only sadness comes when we must part,
if only for a short while,
soon to reunite for eternity,
to walk hand in hand 
as youths once again,
followed by a heavenly dove,
So this is love

Closer to You

I need what I thirst for
Her presence fulfills me
Quenches what I yearn for
She's with me all the time
I keep her on my mind
It's not enough; I need more.
Let my eyes engulf you,
Or make me blind;
My vision can't consume
Another flower
That isn't at full bloom.
And I do mean to sound rude
When I say,
There isn't a shape
With the same symmetry as you 
You laugh,
Am I a jester at heart
Silently playing a fool
Or do my demands bring a smile
And by inches,
bring me closer to you.

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...

Parents Need To Be In Church With Their Children


Parents Need To Be In Church With Their Children… Many parents bring their kids to church… Hoping they’ll be a “better person.” They want them to hear about God. And listen to the “Sunday lesson.” They often tell the children to listen and obey God’s ways. But you’ll never see the parents at church on Sundays! They’re “too busy” to spend time with God... Even at home. Then tell their children they love them. And often leave them alone. They parents don’t want to take the time to give them their attention. They want the Sunday school teacher to give them a “moral direction.” Parents need to be the man and woman God wants them to be! They need to have Christian principles that their children can see! Won’t you be there for your children and help them to understand… What it means to be a Christian. And to be a Godly woman or man! It’s Christ’ desire that you as parents be a Godly example! There’s just too many temptations for your kids to handle! Living for God. As a family. Is the best thing you can do! Christ stands at your heart’s door… The rest is up to YOU!

The Ugliness Of Divorce


My parents taught me the Christian ways.
I was taught to obey what the Bible says.

I was proud of my parents!  I really was!
And loved them so much…  Just because!

They meant everything to me!  I was proud!
Until one day...  There appeared “a dark cloud.”

It was like a “darkness” hovered above.
Leaving their marriage empty of needed love!

Though they were together many years.
There were many cracks that soon appeared.

I say a once happy home soon destroyed.
Being with one another….  They no longer enjoyed!

How could this happen! I had wondered…
To see a happy marriage “totally plundered

As sin crept in...  And allowed to prevail.
Very soon this marriage simply failed.

May this be a warning for me and you…
That our commitment remains faithful and true!

If your marriage is heading toward separation…
Please seek God for a healing and restoration!

If your planning to have a divorce..
Jesus’ love can put it on the right course!

He can replace the brokenness and hurt within..
And can put your lives back together AGAIN!

China sets

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good neighbors stroll by 

Cause he’s something to look at
Can pick him out from bustling restaurant
  just by his gait

Cause he’s something to look at
got a wide mouth, gaping grin 
 always fashionably late. 

When he’s nervous, 
his posture is fleeting. 
it’s unfitting, 
because he’s got the world together. 

When he’s nervous, 
his words 
string together like magnets 
across a refrigerator door. 

But then-
I’ll say something ‘bout my world views
and you’ll suddenly deliver the quickest line 
and I’m laughing
finally i’m light 

Oh, Let’s get married in a white chapel
sip coffee, listen to blues 
 and read morning’s headlines. 

Let’s get married in white chapel
Live in a brick house, build a picket fence
 and watch the good, good neighbors stroll by

Wedding Night Bliss

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

SUMMER:WINTER

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.

A Perfect Day

I sink into the steaming bath and soak my cares away,
A glass of wine to cure the pain the damp brought on today;

No screaming son to demand my time, today is just for me,
A book is all I need to be as content as I can be;

I call the local pizza place as the water cools and bubbles fade,
I order up a large for me and hope it’s not delayed;

Soon the delivery man is on his way with a heavenly pizza pie;
And I intend to enjoy every slice, just me, myself and I;

The rain is coming down in torrents as I snuggle up on the couch;
I slowly start feeling more like me, instead of Oscar the Grouch;

I turn on my favorite movie, the one I’ve seen a thousand times;
I enjoy every second as I relax, feeling sublime;

My family will be home soon and their needs I’ll have to tend;
The sun sinks lower in the sky, as my perfect day draws to an end.

I Know of An Old Fashioned Family


There’s a family I know,  that may seem old fashioned.
But they serve others from a heart of compassion!

They don’t have much in the scope
 of entertainment.
But they have each other,
 and much contentment.

They have a love for God that comes from within!
And are thankful to the Lord
 for being their friend!

They don’t get too involved with that the world brings.
They have each others love.  
They have everything!

This family has been an inspiration to others too!
By their giving hearts, in much of what they do!

This family has a commitment to serve God above.
And have asked Jesus to fill them with his love!

This may seem old fashioned, 
not to have a lot of things…
But they know their Lord 
and the love that he brings!

I’m thankful to know them and their Godly inspiration…
I extend to them a heart of thanks  and appreciation!

Please dear Lord, bless and keep them in your arms!
Be with them Jesus, and protect them from harm!

May the blessings of God keep 
flowing through them!
And may the peace and joy of God continue to be with them!

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

First star to your empty Night

I want a love that
fills my veins like
liquid fireworks
sweet like sugar and 
cinnamon
strong enough to knock
me off my feet, like a 
mighty ocean wave, yet
gentle and magic
like the forgotten lyrics
to a nursery rhyme

I want our spirits to soar
into a bright forever
like two yellow balloons
released, by the
tiny, sticky hands
of a little child
I want, my man, to know
my true self
like the words to a favorite
song on the radio
to feel me, all that is me
rhythm bound from a beaten
street drummer

I wish to be a bright guiding light
as the first star
to your empty night
A familiar love, as
traveling back to a childhood spot
your first love kiss...
first bully fight...
first playground crush lost...

I want a love
that encompasses
my senses, envelopes me
from nothing, like the
steam from my rose petal tea
filling my pores
leaving me
rejuvenated and refreshed

A love, whom steals my worries
as a thief in the night
and greets me with doe- eyed
kisses, once rounding
up a fight

I speak these words into the 
universe, to send me a love
to call my own
what path will my soul mate
travel to me, mysterious 
mystical journey unknown

A BAND OF GOLD

Many men will seek their joy, in almost anything,
But I have found all of mine, in one small golden ring.
Only one small token of the finer things in life.
Just a simple package, the one I call my wife.

A wedding band would strike your eye as just a simple thing,
But my entire world is bound by this tiny ring.
The size may be deceiving on this small band of gold,
No man could imagine the joys that it could hold.

A complete circle, well, where did it start?
The answer to this, you will find in my heart.
There is no way it could tarnish, in our world of strife,
For it has been polished with love by my darling wife.

Placed on my finger and blessed from above,
Molded together with free flowing love,
Bringing two hearts together, making them one,
In a band so solid it can not be undone.

Unforgettable

The time and moments that we both shared, was really great in 
every way.  I often think about it today.  You are so unforgettable
to me, another love will never be.

You helped  to bring out the best in me, I learned to love and to be
my best,  to love you and nothing less.
You are unforgettable in so many ways, I could just love you for days.
The way in which you communicate, brings much love and never hate.

You are unforgettable as can be, your love is deeper than the sea.
It has rythym here and there, your love just flows throughout the air.
You are unforgettable this I will not deny, I think of you and give a sigh
because of all you have done for me, you helped me love and set my

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 
gone,
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 
heart,
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

Something Like You

Something like a love song
Crossed my mind,
Sang to my soul,
Made my heart fly.

Something like a daydream
Drove me wild
Had me on cloud nine
Free like a child.

Something like a miracle
Hit me hard
Had me jumping and skipping.
I was touching the stars.

Something like a love story
Took my by surprise
Feeling like I won the lotto
Gave me butterflies.

Something like a love song
Played softly to my heart beat
Its all your fault
And I'm swept off my feet.

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?
Silence.....
Now. 
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. 
Remote.
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.

My Nest

Love is my nest.
It holds me

It saves me

Up in a forest tree

I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

This Pillow is You

When you're not here
And it's too heard to bear
When I have something to fear
And you're not there

I close my eyes

But you're too far

The tears I fight 
The distance I despise

You're in my heart
Time apart is rough
I can't stand to be apart
This pillow isn't enough

Thine heart is true with such emotional bliss.

Our life together rises, faster than any sapling grow.
One day a year is not enough to celebrate how I feel.

Valentine Romance

Valentines day is always something special to me, I explained. 
So I planned a romantic evening and got ready for my campaign.
The children were at a sleepover with their favorite friends they adore.
So I met my hubby as he came in, accidentally tripping and making him hit the door.
Thank God his head is hard as he hit that, the nearby TV, but very little more.
I made Cherries Jubilee as a snack while he sat there with an ice pack to his head. 
But before I knew it, I’d knocked it over and almost burned down the house instead.
When he finally put the fire extinguisher away…
I got up and got some of the kids’ apple tarts I had made. 
He bit in deep and burned his mouth, declaring he wasn’t hungry and the pain would fade.
Next he decided to go upstairs, but I had put rose petals down everywhere in spades.
And yes you probably guessed it… he slipped and ended up needing a little aide.
At this he decided to take an aspirin and lay down upon the couch. OH  HHWell…
But I knew the rest needed to happen above, to totally create this romantic spell…
I had to get him to the candles and bubble bath, where my romantic dreams still dwelled. 
So I got out some scarves and danced toward him, tying up his hands before he fell.
He never knew what hit him as he was lassoed and gently bounced up the stairs.
I guess I wouldn’t have had to tie his feet… a few words would have done as well.
But you know me when I get going, my mind tends to lose a few brain cells…
He was flustered, exhausted and bruised when he got there, but he’s made of the right stuff.
Though as I took off the scarves, he flopped on the bed pulling the covers over his head kind of rough.
He said he loved me, but living with me could be kind of tough.
He said it was better to leave it to him, for the romantic endeavors and such.
He said he had reservations and play tickets in his shirt pocket for later on that night.
But what he needed now was some aspirin and a few moments of quiet respite. 
So with a sigh he started snoring, and my romantic dreams were momentarily crushed.
I dearly love the man you know. But, do you think maybe I tried too much?

The Breathe of God

The breathe of God is in the touch of the wind.
The tears of God are in the rain.
The anger of God is in nature’s violent force.
And the love of God is in the eyes of the one you truly love.

Bring me a kiss with the gale force of your love,
As it swirls around me throughout this day.
Make it be the touch of that wind… that will bring us back again.
Let it wrap around our hearts to bind them in heavenly bliss…
Then bring your arms to surround me and bring us together again.
In the Church of Love let us meet… by the ocean of heavenly bliss.

A True Credo Of Love

(To All Who Believe It Can Be Achieved)


Caucasoid, Mongoloid,and Negroid
Colour the conscience progression 
of Man's ethical Truths...
The cultural aggressions of violence
and ignorance must end!
Extend your heart, hand and life
Towards the Precious Don of Honour...
Freely, keeping the sincere
Brotherly Creed


 

Comments:  Brothers and Sisters it is time that we stand up and let the Love of God in, after 
all we are all one in the same under the skin, so why not give it a grand try... One Love and 
Many Blessings in Him Always, Adell

HELP HER UP

written 2nd Aug 2013



This life is not as it should be
 pick up your wife, can't you see 

You're her husband, stand up!
 give her a reason, to again believe

She means 'everything'....to this family
 shutting the door leaving her totally... Alone

Do you actually know her at all...
 damaging her heart and soul, deep within it's cold

Loneliness consumes her, it's been so long
 it must be asked...do you still love her?

Are you willing to help her to her feet again?
 or shall you sit back and watch, as she see's the end

This is completely left for only you, her husband to declare
 how much does she really mean to you...do you still care?

Will you step up, or let her rot into total depression, you see it...
 Love and care, or death and dispirit

It's all up to you!
 Her loving husband, what will you do.....

If You Were

If you were a penny, I’d keep you in my front pocket every day.
I’d shine and cleanse you daily, washing all troubles and woes away.
If you were a diamond ring, on my finger is where you’d stay.
I’d shine the stone feverishly, parting all frets and worries astray.

If you were a novel, I’d place you at the very front of the shelf,
I’d tear out the pages of misery, and swallow the depression myself.
If you were as free as a butterfly, I’d cup you within my hands.
I’d whisper all my secrets, then release you from all commands.

If you were a painting, I’d pose you directly over so all could see,
I’d dust away the tears and guilt, inhaling the particles inside of me.
If you were a bronze statue, I would polish you until you shined.
I’d scour away the torment, and any melancholy I should find.

If you were a flower, I’d pluck the petals of bane from your life,
I’d water and feed you frequently, nourishing the roots of strife.
If you were an eagle, I’d admire your rare beauty from above,
I’d watch you slowly soar into the horizon, taking with you,
my heart, my soul and love.

marking time....to my friends on poetry soup.- the Lord helped me fight death and won.

i don't want to be just marking

time.  i died on november 20,

2008, during surgery.  i was

on a vent when i awakened 

december 2, 2008....my sisters'

birthday. what made me llive

i'll never know.  i know there

are things to do on this side

of death.



i have no time for marking time.

i have a stupid bag hanging from

my side now.  i am supposed to

"get comfortable with it".  well

that was a laugh.

that was a laugh until i thought

of the people that had these

things with no hope of ever

getting away from them.



i am so lucky.  14 days i laid

on a vent, then 22 more.

i came home 3 days, 



then 


i had
great pain in my chest...
.
well this is great i said,

a pulmonary emboli, 15 more

days, three days home.



then back to e.r. blood pressure

too high.  this bought me 

4 more days in e.r.



i am home now and finally 

have spent 19 days home.

i feel every pain and i feel

every time that i feel good



yes, i am never marking

time again.....there is

something about fighting

for your life and your sanity

that straightens things out.



i don't recommend it but

i wish i could let your hearts

know what i know.

Life

I do not long for yesterday no grief my soul can find
for everything is just in the end of our time
questions left unanswered can make you seek to find
but in the end it is our destiny that wins our mind

Life is a beautiful tragedy for goodness and glory are divine
how would we know how blessed we are if to hate we remain blind
it is only through those darkest days we truly learn to love our life
so as I lay my quill down finished with each dear line
I must instill in all love and honor will always remain firmly by your side




This is something I came to know in the last few weeks. Sometimes love has always been right beside you. It may be inside yourself. Grief makes us stronger and as they say time heals all wounds. One day you will wake happy and glad to love again. Stronger than before. It is not always easy to forgive those we love or love us, but take it from me it is worth it in the end. You will be so happy you did not break or turn to others. A new friend can not fix the problems in us only we can. When we see that we can be a friend and not just have them. I am proud to have been through hell and know I am finally free from my memories.

A Box of Hope and Dreams

I keep my dreams and aspirations,
stored away neatly in this box.
Tied off with a pretty pink ribbon,
secured tightly with key and lock.

And every time I feel like a failure,
I open it, so I can again feel alive.
Arms of dreams tightly surround me,
giving me strength I need to survive.

I’ve hidden this box in a secret place,
where I’m the only who can see.
A beautiful box of hopes and dreams,
finely sewn with love at the seams.

This box is opened quite frequently,
especially when we’re apart –
this rhetorical box of memories,
in perfect synch with each beat of my heart

Sunshine Valentine

Romance is in the air,
like the blowing breeze.
Love is everywhere,
from the sand to the sea.
Upon the earth the sunshine kisses,
the garden where rose petals glisten.
Hearts beat with a happy tune,
of valentine sunshine for me and you.
The symphony of love is soon revealed,
a valentine love is very real.
Sunshine valentine sparkle your gleaming rays,
shine them on my heart and never let them fade.

A LOVE CONNECTION: ANGEL & NELSON

never go to sleep on anger 
keep the lines of communication open and clear
listen to what each other has to say 
even if it's something you don't want or think you need to hear
remember it's no longer only about you
you're not in this all by yourself
you're now husband & wife, man & woman 
in sickness and in health

marriage requires a lot of work
so consider this now your primary role
for it takes two to tango
and two halves to make a whole
as a husband Nelson it's mostly up to you
to keep the romance feeling brand new
and as a wife Angel you know your position
is to help Nelson make a smooth transition

you have found your soul mate, you have found your best friend
and may the love and faith you have in each other endure til the end
and just make sure that trust is the glue
that keeps your relationship binding and true
always respect each other and always give each other some space
and never forget to thank God daily for His infinite grace
the Lord has blessed you both with a marvelous love connection
so keep believing in each other and may you have a union just short of perfection

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

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky? 
My Oh My… Yes, it’s so very nice and warm.
The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.
Even the groundhog came out, smiled, and looked around…
Six more weeks of this winter? The Best there’s been…
I’ll get out my Valentine trappings tomorrow at dawn.
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… 
I’m sure… On Valentine’s Day our hearts will soar, again…

Happy Valentine’s Day to All and your Loves…

Created you for me to love.
He chose you from all the rest,
He had to have known
I would love you the best.

Does Family Really Matter Anymore


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Boyfriend

This was not what I planed
It was never my intention
I went to see a concert with my friend
Along with his cute cousin

This is not something I’m used to
But I went to take you for a run
My amazement for you
Caught your attention

Yes I do know your name
I love you to death
You are my experimental gain
Relax, its human nature

It’s not what nice boys do
But we’re not all good
In fact we’re quite wicked
It’s hard to behave

Parents say that’s so wrong
Wrong to love someone
Someone who is gay
Gay is what I am

Words spoken in silence,

Can echo a lifetime in your ear,

Much louder than those you can hear.

We'll be

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

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

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

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

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

Cinco De Mayo

 Packed a picnic for the middle of the night,
sandwiches,chocolet stawberrys , liqueur taste just right,
 Smoke a lil sumthin to make us feel so light,
My baby sister here, we can never feel so tight,
 One candle burning flickering just right,
Here with our loves, the moon shines so bight,

 We walk through the trails, to stretch our legs and feel the air,
we get so spooked we run back feeling fear,
 We laugh out loud to clear the air,
 Enjoy this time from here to there,
Cinco de mayo is outa sight,

We love each other all so right.

I Think of a Time When I Was Young


I can think of a time, when I was young.
I was growing up and having fun! 
I remember how excited I was to have a t.v.
There were my brothers, my parents and me!
I remember at about the age of ten.
My dad thought going to the theater was a “sin.”
There were many things 
that as young man…
 I later began to see, and understand!
My parents shared God’s love the best they could!
And I read the Bible and was trying to be “good.”
I had my troubles…  And problems bear...
But I had a family, and much prayer!
The truth of God’s word helped sustain me!
I knew how much he really loved me!
My parents, may seem like they were “old fashioned.”
They loved their kids!  With a Godly compassion!
I’m thankful to be blessed with a Godly love!
My family was a treasure from heaven above!
I think about today, and how things go wrong.
Many families don’t seem to “get along!”
I pray for the blessing of God, to bind them together!
May we all serve him!  Today, and forever!
His love must be the cord that binds!
His will must be the focus of our minds!
May the presence of God bind us as one!
Every mother, father, daughter and son!

Sancuary

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

Let's Not Forget

Let us never forget that God has surrounded us with the best. He gave us
life,  and also has given us hope, as a matter of fact, God gave us more than
most. God love is oh so true! God is good to me and you. Never forget that
the World was made for us to enjoy and not destroy. We must all do our part
to spread God's love and keep peace in our hearts.

Help each other along the way and never forget to pray. Let's not forget that
God is the best and he want everyone to help spread his love, peace, and joy

Stained Glass Masterpieces

In his eyes I see tomorrow
he is the holder of all my time
like beautiful stained glass 
holding rainbow colored sand

His touch is healing and divine
like the warmest sun 
in summer time
his words are like seashells

As they call out to lovers in the ocean
drifting along the tide to sandy beaches
he has found me anchored to him
holding me with his soft sensual kiss

I see the moon in mid-day now
shining right beside the sun
they over came the obstacles 
of all the storms on the run

We are in the eye of the hurricane
where the sky is beautiful all day
enjoying our mystery
to the rest of the worlds dismay

He is the ink that now flows from my quill
I am the tapestry the ancients could never fill
together we are a master piece designed with our love
we are the ones who are well endowed in love

Stained glass masterpieces.
 art inked with sand from above
two beautiful lives filled with God in trust

A Basket Full Of Love

A Basket Full Of Love

Love him
when breakfast
aromas
wake you
and the coffee
he's holding
as you rise
shapes a smile
on your rested face

Cherish 
when
you feel 
the need
for a day off
from the chores
that
the love
he holds for you
gets
it done
with no objection

Admire him
as the
attraction 
he has
stays
when you look
your worst
and that
monthly curse
makes you scream
and cry at him

Affection 
for his
embracing hugs

Appreciation of the 
strong respect
as he
guards
his precious one

Each 
new day
greeted together
take
a second
and
let him
idolize you
as you 
worship him

“Love me like nothing is holding you back”

brown curls fall to her lower back
marking his favorite spot to kiss her
smelling of coconut and ocean winds

The Hardest Thing

Last night we had a quarrel
We went to bed so mad
Each had to get up early
The morning was quite sad
I never meant to say that
I know you didn’t, too
With hopes to reconcile
Just know that I love you

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

I hope tonight we’re civil
We listen and we learn
Together, we’ll get past this
Each others trust, we’ll earn
So, then we can retire
To the bedroom that we share
Lie within each others arms
And show how much we care

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

And when my work’s over
I will come back to you

The Cougar

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

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

A slow steady walk, a gentle loping grace.

So gorgeous. So perfect.
So mine.
My face is shining.
The angels are singing.
Rose petals are falling.

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

Falling…Falling….falling.

That First October Day

That first October day
The sky was no longer grey
The birds were still singing, never did they fly away
It was the day that I first met you,
Your handsome smile took my breath away
And I knew that in that moment that 
Everything was going to be okay

That first October day
I felt that I was on cloud nine
The moment that I saw you,
I'd knew that you would be forever mine

That first October day
I had a tingle all through my spine
The day was so beautiful, so full of sunshine

That first October day
I felt you kiss me so passionately
Held me so tight in your arms
Feeling safe and protected; away from harm

That first October day
It was love at first sight
And I made a promise to myself 
That I would forever love you
Every single morning, noon and night

Always I Miss You

When I'm home sick, sulking half the day because your not here,
 And getting sadder if I say madder because your not there,
 I remind myself in an unusual way theres worse fared,
 If you don't mind being compared,
 
Repeating the many ways you cared,
 The experiences fondly replayed in many ways,
 Thoughts and memories that make me gay,
 Every recipe, every taste,
 Looking back it all seems in an awkward haste,
 
Now it is what I use to fill my plate,
 It's what I use so I won't be late,
 Staying here learning to appreciate,
 All the miles, trucks caring freight..
 
For your Christmas gifts the children just can't wait,
 But if you visit my mind would quake.

Permanent Love

There'll never be another, wonderful as you,
To make me experience feelings I never knew.
Your soft voice, to my ears, a melodic rhyme,
In the future, to seal it, the wedding bells shall chime.
I won't be the type to love a thousand girls with passing days,
Instead I'll be the one to love you in a thousand ways.

Giving me your love makes me a stronger individual,
Loving you, not just a habit, but now a repeated ritual.
What we now possess, a treasure you've been seeking for years,
You could  sense it's coming through all your past tears.
The heartbreaking trials of our past, only preparation,
For this perfect union, there'll never be separation.

For many others, their so-called love diluted with infatuation,
But ours so strong, in it we've experienced full saturation.
At times you wish to know what makes you the object of my affection,
So many words apply, it seems impossible to make a selection.
For if I choose some, there's so much I wouldn't say,
Because my love for you is so much, it could not all be uttered within a single day.
Our attraction remains as spotless as the feathers of a dove,
So strong, so long, two shall become one, truly permanent love.

Me without You

Me without you is a motionless sail boat,
A kid being out doors in the winter without a coat.
A basketball star without ever having any coach.
Can you picture trying to fly a plane with no engine?
A mother of three trying to feed her children with no kitchen?
Do you notice some of the things that are missing?
Baby you are a puzzle, with a piece missing. 
Without the E in ME, is everything! 
Nothing is complete if there is no YOU AND ME.
That is like trying to serve a turkey with no wings on Thanksgivings.
I am the key you turn in your ignition, I kindle your love intentions.
Oh, what sweet reminiscing, like a pastry treats with frosting.
I bet that put a smile on your face, like a kid winning his first race.
 As I were your Hostess Twinkie and you were my creamed that filled me.
You are the only one that completes me, that how our love flow so swiftly.
As a little girl twirling around in her favorite dress, I think I will keep you because you fit me best.
There is no such thing as a Me without you, because simply no one could ever compare to you.
That is like a sneaker with no lace, you are surly to fall on your face.
But don’t worry I will be right there to catch you with grace.

Loving A Bleach Blonde White Girl

Loving a bleach blonde white girl will be the best thing that has ever happened to me. My love for a white girl will always be stronger than ever. It seems that I've got real feelings for this girl. The fact that day in and day out, for the rest of my life, the only thing I want to tell this white girl is that I really love her. Looking into the eyes of this beautiful, attractive white girl is like looking at a pair of priceless gems or expensive diamonds worth $385,000. And when I look at her face, it's like looking at a beautiful angel right in the eyes. When it comes to loving a bleach blonde white girl, I want to be her black knight and shining armor. And when it comes to falling so seriously in love with a white girl, I must protect her from real danger, especially that of a bunch of womanizing jerks. Not only do I not want this beautiful white girl to go through any more drama in her life, I don't want to break her heart, either. Right now, I see this white girl as my best friend, my would-be, possible girlfriend, my future wife, and the mother of my children. If this beautiful white girl had a nicer, gentler black guy like me in her life, I promise not to ever cheat on her with any other girl, even if she's as attractive as this girl is. I don't want her beauty to go to waste. And if me and this white girl were to be together and stay as a loving couple for the rest of our lives, that would be great for the both of us.

Live To Give

Each day I awake I feel so brand new, knowing there is something for me
to do.  I love to see the smile on your face, it reflects your love and your
grace.  You live to give so much love, the kind of love I am dreaming of.
A love that is oh so true, The kind of love that makes me feel brand new!

Fate or Fiction

Is this fate or fiction....
the aesthetics of your love is a marvelous depiction
I am having a love seizure or is your love an affliction
Is this fate or fiction? 

It must fate, our paths have crossed our spirits soar just right 
you calm and sweet and never like to fight...
bring security and confidence in such a delightful way..
the expressions of your thoughts blows my mind away
Is the fate or fiction?

It takes courage to find out which one would be the exemption.. fate or fiction? 
when you have been hurt by an ex's restrictions
but the aesthetics of your love has become my addiction.
No Fiction this is Fate.

If I Had One Wish

If I had one wish to make,
I’d wish to be with you,
To have you here right by my side,
For nothing else will do.

For when you’re gone so is the sun,
My world is dark and grey.
And as I walk the road of life,
I stumble on my way.

But when you’re here, I see the light.
I know which way to go;
The rose that once was dead and dry,
Now starts again to grow.

For I am only one, you see, 
And love requires two.
So, if I had one wish to make,
I’d wish to be with you.

A GOOD MAN TO ME

He's everything that a man could be and more
when it comes to him the heart adores
the love that he gives is like no one else that you know
his love together with yours is better than the winter's snow

There's no mistake about his love and feelings for you
he only wants to do what's right and make you more true
a good man is this you see
when he encourages he makes you feel like there's nothing

On earth you can't be
uponing seeing you he often cracks a smile
Being with him is always worth the while
he gently holds you tight in the middle of the night

This good man unlike others
will make sure that everything's alright
he gives you love that you just can't resist
a good man believe it or not

Will always exist
even when it's cold outside 
he will do his best to keep you warm
a good man will not cause arguments or bodily harm

My friend as the love of his life you are
a good man would not hesitate
in making you feel like a star
ladies you dream of him even in your sleep

A good man you will always strive to keep
remember that he's more than words can ever say
a good man no matter what
unlike others he will never go away

Doggie Moss

My husband’s eyes are tearing up! Yes, it’s that time of year!
The doggie moss just keeps creeping, everywhere my dear.
Wherever does it come from? It seems to keep eluding me, for sure.
As it constantly creeps in to cover my carpet, like a fine velour.
I complain daily to my hubby, as it attacks my dogs and house.
I say, its a fine black sheen that floats in the air, through out.
My hubby doesn’t understand… He says its only hair from the shedding dogs.
But I assure him daily that it’s truly nothing of the kind, my love…
I groom the doggies, saying its to save the dogs and destroy the moss. 
Each time I explain about the moss, my hubby promptly snorts.
Then his eyes begin to twinkle as they slowly water up.
He heard me pray to God one day to help me with the moss.
He says he stumped his toe as the snort turned into a lions roar.
But when I went into the room he was doubled up, rolling on the floor.
Again his eyes were tearing as I swear I heard him trying to stifle a loud guffaw…
Then the next day he brought me home a gift, an adorable white poodle dog.
He said it’d prove it wasn’t moss and was coming from the other dogs.
I felt I had to explain, that the poor white poodle was also being struck. 
Then, I sadly showed him the black velour also adhering to it’s fluff.
He looked totally incredulous, as the tears came again, with a lively snort.
He’s way too kind as he tries not to laugh at my antics… to my face.
He would never hurt my feelings, for he thinks I believe earnestly what I say.
I don’t think he’ll ever catch on… as he tries not to tremble from his mirth.

Now, I know you may think me crazy… Though, we all are, in each our own way…
Actually, I do know it’s the dogs shedding, though that I’ll never admit or betray.
For every time he tries not to laugh, its too much fun to miss the display.

HOME

Never forget what you have
Your home is your haven and to let your hair down
The love of your home, its the place to be
With the love of all of your family
Home is truly where the heart is
Remember that the work day is done
Never bring home the toils from the day
Relax and have fun that is the way!
When you walk in the door you will see
The smiling faces of your family
Kiss them hello and have a good night 
Be aware that the home you have worked so hard for
Is the place to rest and relax and say
I have done all I can for this day is done its with the
Family, wow I am sure gonna have some fun!

Together

Together is what we should be, me loving you and you loving me.
We dont need to separate, because sooner or later it brings on hate.
Let's try to work it all out, You and I is what it is all about.

You need me, and this I know, why throw away something that 
can most certainly grow. Please be realisitc about our love, do not be afraid
to express yourself,  this is what you need, it might even help.

Why not try to understand, that we both go hand and hand.
I am your woman and you are my man. There is no denying in truth,
You need me, and I need you.

Partners in Life and Love

Walk me to the riverside drown me in my sorrows.
Then I may begin again and this time with much more.
When you drown I and my sorrows wake your spirit.
So we may travel on this road so short and narrow.
Each day I face your honor and your fortitude.
I awaken to a new paradox that you call plain love.
Love has always been hard for me to cling too.
Not that I am heartless, you know that I am not.
We cherish each other, we serve one another.
We, as you say can beat any battle that we face.
So if I stagger and do not fall, start me out again.
Keep me on the same track that your heart travels.
And our lives together will be full of such rewards.
While our love and partnership will last forever.

It Looks Like Love to Me

You smile
You ask
No easy task
To put it into words
I look
And see 
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s that blanket on a winter night
You wrap around me oh so tight
The way you want to make things right
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

You laugh
You say
There’s no other way
To be just who you are
I smile
Happily
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s the way you take me in your hold
You never let our love grow old
There’s not one doubt, for me I’m sold
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

If love was ever one person
Then babe it would you
There is no other word for this
That’s why our love holds true

You look
Then smile
All the while
You never look away
My eyes
They see
It looks like love… to me

Yeah, honey
It looks like love… to me

He'sEverythingIWant

His warm breath like milk,
Dark eyes that glow
Sharp yet fulfilling presence
Provides sense of comfort-
I adore his appealing character

Speech proves his knowledge 
Of proper influence
Both in the streets 
And in the office-
Enticing are his orations

His delectabe alluring scent,
His contradicting soft masculine touch
Both have my mind racing!
Dazing rudely into oblivion-
I lust for his possession

The pressure of his body 
Against my own
Sends a tender erotic sensation throughout my body
Air escaping through my chest-
I never want to leave him 

His steady potent heartbeat silences me
At a loss of intellection 
I close my eyes and listen
Captivated by his perfection-
Hes everything I want

Teenage Love 6: The Engagement and The Marriage

Both of the young lovebirds who have been dating since middle school and high school will
have finally made it to the altar, and after a long-term engagement. Both lovebirds are
very excited about getting married. First, these two former teenage lovebirds will have
gotten engaged after a guy, who used to be a teen boy asked a woman, who was a teen girl,
to have married him. And before these two make it to the alter, then both young lovebirds
will have to make it throughout the engagement without ever cheating on each other and
stuff. It seems that a young man and a young woman have dreamed that they'd make it to the
wedding of their awesome dreams, which is now called, "the final frontier;" a famous quote
from "Star Trek." It also seems that once these two lovebirds have tied the knot after
saying the words, "I do," there's no turning back. There's also no way out of the
marriage, unless it ends in a divorce. This fairy tale story now has a happy romantic
ending for this loving couple who met in elementary school, middle school, and/or high
school, and pretty soon, there's going to be a happy ending for all would-be young
lovebirds, too. Everybody's talking about getting married since the day they started going
to school, especially what their dream weddings will have looked like. I find this type of
love very interesting. On top of that and as for this loving married couple who were once
teenagers when they fell in love with each other, they're going to tell each other three
words: "I love you." It also looks like that day in and day out, week after week, and
every day for the rest of their lives, they're going to stand by each other until the day
they pass on. It's just like the saying goes, "love conquers all," which means that all
marital relationships will never be broken. And if this type of love keeps growing and
growing and this ends up in marriage in the near future, these two love birds (a man and a
woman), their friends, and their family members will be ready for it. they'll all be ready
for the future of all lovebirds.

Fired Up

Fired Up

Suddenly slow, then frozen up…My heart began to pound.
My computer means so much to me. It’s my touch to the outside world.
Then my knight came in the door… determined my dragon to slay. 
And let me tell you… as dragons go… he can slay anything.

Dragon fire can be hot, but this one was immensely worse.
Nothing at all seemed to work. This dragon was really strong.
Shield after shield fell from my knights’ grip… 
But thank God… he never, ever gave up.

Night after night he fought with might and studied his foe with thought.
Each night he scanned every road… for where a lair could be stowed.
His sword swung with might nightly… erasing him from the land. 
But still the dragon was able to come back breathing fire upon all at hand.

He knew how to open every back door. He was cleverer than any I had seen.
But steady as a rock my knight and prince… continued to protect my way of life.
Finally, one day, with four new shields and with Excalibur by his side…
The dragon's spawn was slayed one last time,  then a miraculous silence remained…

My knight had sacrificed so much time and sleep… that I truly cried.
This dragon was from a far away land where more dragons are made with pride.
But my dear knight is willing to wait by my side… His shield and sword nearby.
Thank you I say with hugs and kisses… For my knight in shining armor, my life…

I Needed You To Stay

(chorus)

Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

 I sit and watch down the hall,
Silence waiting for your call,
If I could just hear you say
That you need me today
Then everything would be ok,
I cant make this go away.
Ive done it again
When will this end
Where is my friend
I needed you to stay.

(chorus)
Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

You told me I was the one,
Yet its over before it begun
You took my heart
and tore it apart
Where the hell did this come from
All the tears I cried
From all your lies
I cant make this go away
I needed you to stay

 (chorus)
Watch these eyes fill with tears
I don’t know where to go from here
Everything is always the same
Lonely nights filled with pain
Why cant I rearrange
Why does opening up feel so strange
Is this what's meant to be,
A life with only me

Morning Raga - "Tell Me A Story!"

In the first grey light of dawn, a young woman begins the morning song.
The simple cadences of her song are as tranquil and liquid as the monsoon rain, 
Trickling down the broad leaves in her mother’s garden.
The steady drumming on the veranda roof echoes her rhythms. 

She sings of joys, of sorrows, and of love … always of love … 

This morning song is as familiar and comforting as a lullaby.
Her mother brought it with her from the South, 
And sang it every morning for her father.
Now, she sings for them both, as they begin the day.

Today will be special for her.
She is to meet her future husband for the first time.
She has never seen him, but she trusts her parents’ judgement … 
After all, they love her, don’t they?

She hopes he will be kind, and maybe a little bit handsome … 
Like the boy she’s seen in town.
But she must try to forget him … 

On another veranda, a young man sits silent, listening.
He sits here at every dawn to hear the morning raga, 
Entranced by the voice of a girl he cannot see.

He, too, is to meet his betrothed today.
He wishes she might be a singer, or at least enjoy the morning song,
When she comes to live at his mother’s house.

He remembers a lovely girl he saw … sly glances, shy smiles … 
If his new wife is half as pretty, he will be well content.
Yes! He will … 

He believes his secret is safe, but mothers see everything … 
And his mother loves him. So she whispered to a friend,
And her friend whispered to another, and, well … 
A good husband is not hard to persuade … 

The sun has risen above the clouds.
There is much to do today – and if the young people agree,
There will be a lucky Monsoon wedding to arrange.

But first, the song.

Our QT Savior

In the cold of the morn with a crisp cloudy day…
A flat tire assailed a young girl, as she went on her way.
Young and full of life but definitely overwhelmed…
She was late for work and her husband had just nearly died.
She sat in her car, sniffling, worrying, and crying some wails.
She’d never changed a tire, a young husband always there.
But hurt he’d become, and in the hospital now remained…
It was up to her, suddenly alone, to make things right again.
She fretfully tried AAA but the wrong number was wrung…
Till Old Granny Goodness appeared with hope, and some fun.
She quickly got her out of the car, and found everything there.
Explaining what to do, Granny decided to entertain with flair.
Together they’d use a spare tire to fix that rickety old car.
They figured out the jack and successfully lifted the car.
But lug nuts are hard and need strength to unleash…
So granny fussed and she bug-tussled but never gave up
Till the young girl laughing, knew what she must do herself… 
Grabbing deep into her courage, she ran into the QT for help.
Sure enough, a worker volunteered to help that sweet young thing out.
And the lug nuts came off lickety-split with laughter on top.
The young man was gracious, and ever so kind and…
Yes, he finished the job with his best smile and in record time
And of course he helped put everything away, too, you can bet…
He even helped Old Granny Goodness up off the ground where she sat.
Then with a salute and fare thee well, he went back inside…
While Old Granny Goodness, and the girl put air in the tires.
By now the girl was the lead in the work as she smiled and laughed…
She was empowered; you know… there’s nothing wrong with that.
Yes, the world was saved as all found their way home, with a wink, at last.
Yes, with gratitude, a hug, and a smile… many a way can be found again.

My Love For You Is Easy

There is so much I want to share with you,
But my words are lost deep within me
I have oh so many emotions
How do I make you see

Life is not always that simple
Hear this from my heart
Our faith will concur all
As we stand here at the start.

Not speaking to you is going to kill me
You there and me here
But one day soon that will change
And I will finally have you near.

The Angels they did send you
The day that we met
Our love will last forever
As in stone it was set

Come fly, fly with me baby
Oh come fly with me
We can explore our love together
And set all our deepest emotions free

For the skies are without limits
And the tree tops we sour too
Perched upon a branch
Our love is forever true

I never meant for this to happen
But I am sure glad it did
Hearing your love and laughter
Makes me feel like a kid

Please never doubt my love
What is shared between you and me
Cause I am here to forever hold you
You just wait and see

But for now, I have to be patient
And except our destiny
But I promise you this my darling
You are forever within me.

When all hope is lost

when the birds have stoped

signing their sweet melody,

and the flowers lost their sweet scent,

when the grass started withering,

u were there for me.



u defied the odds and stood tall when i was down.

u were able to reach down on me

u reached my hand and pulled me up.

u believed in me even when i didnt believe.

u made me your hero.

and for that i regard as the best gift in my life.



i will rise again and be the hero in me that you have always seen.

i will stand by you forever.

naw i am a believer,
 all because of you.

and when i look over my shoulder,

i see the dark past that was my life.

and the thought of you brings light to all of it.

now i can walk with my head held high

because i kno wat m made of

and what i have to do.



i know i have to build you and i

a little heaven on earth

where we will live a happy life that all of us always dreamt of.

we came from humble beginings

and today we stood as legends in the name of love.

we wrote the story of our love in sand

hoping that the wind will not wipe away.

but we dont know of the happenings of tomorrow,

so lets rejoice today,

wat our love has created and brought upon us.



u have not deserted me,

In my darkest hour,

i will also be here with you forever,

for i know u do not want me to go anywhere.

you showed me how it is to love,

i will return the love you gave me

and will remain true to you as u have been true to me.

you are every reason, every hope and every dream i ever had,

and no matter what happens to us in the future,

every day we are together

is the greatest day of my life.



m going nowhere.

unless you push me.

but i will move with greater resistance.

for i do not want to go anywhere,

here is where i want to spend the rest of my days,

i have became happier each day since u came into my life.

and i want to share the happyness with you.

if you will let me stay and enjoy the happyness with you.

there will be obstacles in the journey,

but i think both of us will tacle the obstacle together and overcome.



u always had faith in me,

i also have faith in you, and will forever have that faith,

i plead with you to never loose the faith in me,

even through my downfalls.

m here with you and for you

M here 4eva.

My Hero

My Hero
I played with a shy boy, when I was nine and he was ten.
He had a big party and left the country then.
His parents took him away, to the other side of the world
Never to be seen of again, or to be heard.

We talked about this boy that was nine, way back then.
I remembered him for ever, even when I turned ten.
I often wondered what had happened to him
This scrawny shy boy, quiet tall but very thin.

Seven years later; this boy came back on a ship
He was almost a man still thin, but nice lips.
He talked to me often and we became friends
He really liked my sister, but we made amends.

This boy, nearly a man asked me to go out
I thought you liked my sister, So what’s this about?
I thought I liked her, but I know she’s not true
I think that I would rather go out with you.

This boy nearly a man looked so sincere 
I agreed in an instant but, what did I hear?
They say he has girls all over the place
Oh well never mind, I had been in the race.

I gave him the elbow after some time,
I found then, that I missed this almost man of mine.
He asked for me back, a pest he became,
He asked for my hand, I thought that was lame.

He promised me faithfully, that he would be true
And he become my hero, I am telling you.
He’s more than a man a giant in his heart,
He still loves me dearly, We never shall part!

He saved my life, in fact more than once
So he really must love me, I took no chance.
He stands up for me on every occasion
This man I have loved since I was nine and he was ten.

My Family and Me

It's amazing how quick things can change.
First your running with the kings, and then you're knocked out of range.
It's strange. I used to worry and stress over friends.
Now I've grown to be a man. Maybe know a few of them.
All that time I could of studied. Did better in school.
Got a job and made it big. Maybe now I'd be cool.
Who's the fool? Now who's the bull? I know that's not me on the top.
Life is always making turns weather you like it or not.
The past will always be the past. My glory days may seem gone.
But, now its time to start a new.The stories keep coming on.
I've got a new girl. She means the world to me.
She keeps me warm at night, my best friend, my new dream.
Since my car accident, still got a limp on one side.
Still working with my memory, still need a friend who can drive.
I love to Karaoke. I get noticed in bars.
My mom's always there to catch me. Tom's working with my mom's cars.
My sister's in the Army, my niece is a big part of my life,
Friend Zach keeps assholes off me, and God is my wife.
AJ's always there to help, Brian is my LOST bud,
Mary's out of school, Lil cousin, Hunter's a stud.
Grandpa still is my idol, JT is still the music man .
The Adam's still can party. Chris, living good on the sand.
I may only use one hand, but I plan to be the best.
At all I do in life, cause there's not that much time left.
The blood test that I took says Landon is mine.
I hope this all works out fine in time and help to make my son's life shine.
JC who's down in Georiga, my heart is screaming for you.
I hope that you recover well. It can't be worse then what I went through.
Uncle Jimmy where you at? Where's Matt, Corie, and Pete?
I know you all are doing good. Serviolo's are a hard team to beat.
How's the rest of the family? I love and miss you all!
I hope you all are standing tall and I pray we never fall.
These last words that I say, I say only to you.
We've got the best family in the world and you know I LOVE YOU!

What's Happening to Marriages Today

What’s Happening to Marriages Today?

I was listening to someone just the other day…
And I couldn’t believe what he had to say!

He had left his wife and children for another!
She was young enough to be his daughter!

Here they were, “in love” and holding hands!
Hoping to soon, get their “wedding bands!”

They were pretending that this was so “cool.”
Living now by their own “set of rules!”

How sick and disgusting this is getting to be!
Is this something that many can’t see?

God gave us Adam and Eve to become one.
To bear fruit through daughters and sons!

He gave us marriage as holy vows are made.
Not to march in an “adulterous parade!”

We are treading on very dangerous ground!
Faithfulness and commitment 
are scarcely found!

The very definition of marriage is changing!
As the family unit is always rearranging!

Our only hope is in Jesus!  And him alone!
Let’s promote his love! Into our hearts and home!

Let’s allow his love to be our heart’s glue!
And bring new meaning to the words; “I love you!”

May his love bind our hearts and lives together!
And remain faithful to each other forever!

listining to your mom oh what a bore
"yes honey I'll get smokes from the store"
"ok I'll get the kids from school"
"yes I'll bring you a towl to the pool"

"no honey I won't go to the bar"
"ok I'll fix the brakes on your mom's car"
"yes I sent your mother's birthday card"
"oh god I guess I'll rake your mom's yard"

I wish I could get a little bit of proof
while I'm putting shingles on your mom's roof
"jeeze now I'm doing her plumbing in pex"
when all I want is a little bit of SEX!

Stunned with Love

 a stunning joy
a peaceful place
warm hands rest on my belly
he's in there
shocked we lay quiet in the afternoon sun 
whispering
reverent

dogs sniffing your hair
coming into our lives a son so loved so wanted
stunned with love we make noises

Drinking from the Baby Bottle

Holidays come and holidays go, but the grocery store is a war zone.
You got to get there fast… or Honey you’re just plain out of luck!
My diabetic hubby drinks caffeine free diet soda and what luck…
You know the ones he takes to work... Only the little bottles are left…
I knew I was truly sunk when the 3rd store was just the same.
So as lunch came around, my manly man’s manly sized lunch came out.
But everyone became quiet and laughed as the baby sized bottle came out.
Everyone was laughing as my hubby drank it down.
Then he held it up and said “In your diapers” as everyone laughed around.
And to everyone’s surprise he pulled another one out from his lunch…
This time there was applause as he drank that sucker down.
Today was his day to entertain.
Tomorrow it’ll be someone else’s to claim.
Thank goodness his sense of humor… is worthy of acclaim…

When I look into ur eyez

when I look into your eyez
I see love still there inside
and I want to be that one
to make it sunny when it rains
yet I want to be that girl
to step into your world
but first you gotta let me in
into your heart
and I promise you
I wont split it apart
when I look into ur eyez
I see love still there inside
I wanna make u laugh
when u cry
i wanna make u happy
when ur sad
I wanna start brandnew
and erase ur past
I wanna be the best
you neva had
so when I look into ur eyes
I see love still there inside

Getting The Victory For An Addiction

I know of someone with a very powerful addiction.
It was eating him up like a “big time infection…”

His wife didn’t know what to do.  She was at her “wits end…”
No matter what she tried…  The troubles began…

At church… It didn’t seem to matter how much he cried.
Everything the pastor offered.  He already tried.

He couldn’t find an escape.  He felt trapped within.
How was he going to overcome this habitual sin?

He was raised as a Christian even as a young man.
But the problems he was now facing, 
He couldn’t understand…

He met others at church with similar “obsessions…”
As he began to listen to their many confessions…

The power he was seeking to overcome this “thing.”
Was not enough.  He had tried just about “everything.”

He wondered and had thought this whole thing out.
Is this was being a God-fearing person is all about?

As this addiction seemed to be pulling him down…
He reached out for help.  And a friend was found.

He cried out to Jesus with a desperate plea….
“Lord Jesus…  Have mercy on a sinner like me.”

As the days went by, he confessed his every sin.
And felt the blood of Jesus cleanse him within.

The victory that he needs and desperately sought.
Is already his.  It has been blood bought…

Amen!  Hallelujah!  Victory in Jesus is his indeed.
For Jesus has supplied his every need!

This victory can be yours too!  Won’t you give Jesus a chance!
He alone can change your every circumstance!

He has the power, by the blood of the lamb.
He’s reaching out to you!  Won’t you take his hand?

I Love You Because You Are You

Baby when I think of you, my heart
longs for you, when I see you, my heart beats fast
and uncontrollably, and when you speak to me,
my ears hear an angel, and it's musical,
and I am right I am supossed to be.
When you say my name, I get butterflies in my
stomach. Baby, I don't love noone but you. The only 
guy that really attracted me from first sight is you. I
love being German, and I love being married to my
German. I can't love anyone else but you, baby
I've finally found my perfect match. I can't

I just wanna get up and find you, my heart always

I'll Be There

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

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

My dream wedding day

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

The next few moments

Jiggling keys,he gave his crown a scratch
then took another look at his watch.
"You're gorgeous, now please get out!"
for the 10th time he cried out loud.

Out she emerged, breathtaking, as always,
dropping baubles, tottering in her Jimmy's,
Smile still smeared, they left that hour,
unaware of the timed out counter.

Tyres screeched as he sped,
"take it slow honey"she requested,
when, an unexpected brightness grew larger,
until black, and then, everything grew calmer.

With excruciating pain he awakened,
looking around called, "Lauren!"
the teary faces dropped and nodded,
"We're sorry" , they whispered..

Suddenly lifted by a whiff of heat,
all he could hear was his own heart beat.
limped out, made a futile attempt to find his dear,
and crashed with thoughts of future fear.

Shutting the door behind him,
reminiscing love, life, past with grim,
clouds of  "what if" floating his self ,
whole world reduced into a tiny elf.

Moving on is most important at present,
Realizing a  reason, he may not accept,
 he still breathes, for that very reason,
And, taking care of himself will never be treason.

Forever Your Man

I'm very outgoing, yeah I talk to some girls,
but you got to understand, you're the queen of my world.
Honey, If I had the money, I would glitter your life.
I'd buy you diamond rings and I would make you my wife.
It's true, you've put me through, I'm stuck to you like super glue.
I just wouldn't know what I'd do without you as my boo!
I stand grand in this land, with you at my hand.
How can I make you understand that I'm forever your man?
You're like the leader of the band and I'm your number one fan!
You're totally fine, you're fun, crazy, sexy, and cool.
So glad you're mine, the one, that makes the other boys drool.
When I think about the times I brought a tear to your eye,
It makes me break down and cry. Sometimes I wish I would die.
Girl, you are my Angel. You were sent from above.
You saved me from this hell and filled my life up with love.
Where we'll go from here on out is a mystery to me,
but I know I'll be all right with you, always, next to me!

Bound by Divinity

A myriad verse upon love there be
And this is one in an endeavor
To be written more
And forever free

For in intimate moments
My mind wonders to compare
Those things which are 
Like myself without you, unsure
That I might not be

Then, I hold you near
And imagine
If, a flower could
A bee without

Or a seashore would
Devoid of gull 
Or crashing waves about

A dawn in mourning 
When clouds of grayer loom
Deprived of sun

Or even cityscapes 
Upon the night
Deep within the blackouts
In hinder sight, of absent moons

What if rainbows 
In transparency 
Where disappearing
Becoming sights unseen

And waterfalls falling
Plunging into silence
If thunder claimed its independence
Setting the lightening alone and free

Upon a realization
I’m captured
In a tangle of overwhelming
Tendencies

When your warmth 
And beating heart
Back to you
In love, they seize upon me

A peace 
A knowing
For this life at least
You and I will be

As one 
Within our sacred oath
Of man and wife
Held together 
More and more each day
By divinity

Bridal Anxiety

Behind the doors I stand
Clothed in the aching of my nerves
For standing other side
Is a man I don't derverve

King of Kings is who they call him
And do they rightly so
Though on the outside appears ordinary
Inward dwells a spiritual glow

His manner and his speech
Is more powerful that you can percieve
And you can feel his presence linger
Long after he has leaved

Now waiting for my cue to go
And start my new beginning
A voice whispers inside my ear
reminding me of all my sinninng
 
Looking in the mirror beside me 
At this veil laced with shame
With a dress as white as purity 
A False declaration for this dame

I have nothing good to offer him
Little he gains with me as a wife
Is this truly ordained by God
Or will he regret it later in life

But as the door flings open
The organs begins to play
Crowds rise to their feet
And I try to shake my fears away

Raising my head to see my lover
Expecting a disapproval glance
Instead bewildered in my mind
As I see his look of acceptance

With each step I take the past fades
And the worry casts aside
Taking his hand, seeing his face
I feel ready to become his bride

"Oh my darling" he gently whispers
"All along this was my plan
For you to leave this world of disorder
And to dwell in my promised land

For even as you were dark as night
And your sins as black as tar
You still chose to cling to me
Sensing I wouldnt be that far

Please my love, put your trust in me
As I guide you all your days
I'll conquer your foes, heal your pain
And from your side I'll never stray"

Lifting her heart to her Prince of Peace
Wiping the glisten from her eyes
A leap of joy jumped in her heart
And a love from within began to rise

So she stands with a life before her
Knowing that it'll more than suffice
And now till forever she'll remember
The day she became the bride of Christ

My Wonderwall

Thinking back in my life
I wonder how i met you
But
I Know in my heart it was my grandfathers beautiful spiritual presents
That made us two
Then their was a wedding
And
A baby made us three
Later twice more i was blessed
After that,
You can be certain i needed rest
This is my wonder wall

And
It all started with my grandfather's wink
which would lead me to you.

and seeing us through to mornings light

And this is the place we go to dwell

THIS IS ME

 I may not have all the riches galore,
Or stand laced in diamonds that drape to the floor,
 I may not be built, like the girl in your dreams.
Or bare the manors your mother would teach.
 I may not have money to spend at my will,
Or time to waste ,just 4 the hell.
 I may not cook as good as you,
But you"ll know I tried, take outs good too.
 I never stopped earning all I have gained.
I'm willing to share with you just the same.
 I may not be perfect just honest & true.
All that I have baby,I offer you.

Little Red

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

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

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

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

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

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

For the Love of Winter

And I can smell the windswept pine
Warmly holding hands, yours in mine
We move against the coming night
Our aching bodies drawing the line

Through the snow we lightly play
Laughing madly, in love we stay
Back to our cabin of logs and love
As the sun dwindles to a single ray

Bathed in firelight, glistened in sweat
We roll and writhe and love and yet
We two stripped and licked by flame
Fuelled by amore and desirous inset

These presents we give each our hearts
Bound together we lay upon fiery hearth
As winters coat enwraps this self bounty
We shall never be alone or torn apart

Softly as a willow weeps
I lay by roots and soundly sleep
Some small voice inside my dream
It's my child smiling, so serene

Her dark curls cascading down
Bright eyes looking all around
That little darling voice, my favorite sound
With small bare feet upon the ground

Her father, my husband, gazes grinning
At our little girl who was just the beginning
For my body had started showing
What lay within me, slowly growing

My life long wish is coming true
And to my lover, I thank you
For helping with that extra lift
And giving me the goddess gift

Over flow back to you as it continues to expand

May your life be everything you wish it to be

What's Done In Secret Will Come Out In the Open

What’s Done In Secret… Will Come Out In The Open! I’ve read God’s word, and it’s clearly spoken… What’s done in secret… Will come out in the open! I’ve been guilty of this, too many times! I never thought of it, to really be a “crime?” “Nobody’s watching” was the thought pondered… As my mind began to “explore and wander.” It didn’t take long for my life to go “off course.” By a powerful wind of temptation’s force! No matter how many times I took time to pray… This “secret” held on, and wouldn’t go away! I went to church on Sunday and prayed and cried. This “secret” remained, no matter how hard I tried! God told me, I was to give up what surrounded me! This was hard to do, but God was there to help me! Many things I thought I needed, to give me pleasure… Didn’t fulfill the love that God gave! An eternal treasure! As each day passes on… I want to humbly confess… I’m giving my life to God! He’ll take care of the rest! May the Lord Jesus stir a deep passion within… May it be my desire to be more like HIM! God is the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow! I’ve no secrets with him! No more shame or sorrow! Jesus is the Lord of lords! And the King of kings! He’s my lord and savior! My everything! By Jim Pemberton

Their First Valentine

The Frieman's had their first Valentine
Since they said,”I Do”
Justin and Sarah
Sat upon their love seat
The blaze of the fire near by
Only 103.5 seconds since they had kissed
To long for this young couple
For love runs as deep as the ocean is wide
Valentine means the same for the young and the old
It is a time to remember the one who took your heart away
Weather it’s been months or years love transcends all for just 
One day

Love lost and found

You wre my first love
I thought I would be your wife
You said we would be forever
Together for life

You moved on to another
You took your loving care
There was no empathy when you left
You almost took my hair

I picked myself up and moved on too
Another came along and promised he would be true
This is real love as it should be
It's not needy, selfish, or greedy

Love is what love does
Love gives and love buds
Love cannot hold a grudge
My new love I wed, in front of a judge

A Day Vs. A Lifetime

A day in love with my very best friend:

Divorce Isn't Always the Best Choice

Divorce Isn’t Always A Good Choice! I met a person who’s been married for many years. When he talked to me, he was in tears! He was faced with the option of divorce! And now, he feels his life is driven “off course.” His wife said she’s through. She’s “all done.” And doing things which seemed “fun.” Beyond each day and the circumstance… Does this marriage even “have a chance?” Why do people seem happier when they’re apart? Far too often, this ends up in a broken heart! Too often, people “give up” on what they believe! But it’s so many lies, is what they receive! I spoke to this person, of God’s purpose and meaning! Into God’s loving arms, is where he needs to be leaning! When life changes, and marriage seems to have failed you… Jesus is here! And wants to put his arms around you! There’s hope and answers to all of your problems! You’ll find the answer in God’s word! HE can solve them! The best choice for you is to come and trust HIM! Give Jesus your life! Come now and love HIM! All he needs is for you to give him an invitation! He’ll change you! And make you a new creation! His love can do what no other power can ever do! He’ll bring new meaning in the words; “I LOVE YOU!” By Jim Pemberton

Do You Find Yourself In An Embarrassing Situation

Do you find yourself in an 
embarrassing situation?
And have brought shame with
 little or no explanation?

Perversion comes in many forms and different kinds.
The result of it is to pollute or destroy the mind…

This type of lifestyle can lead to “an overwhelming” addiction.
And bring into your life misery and affliction…

Many “starve” to “satisfy” their feeling of emptiness…
And too often find themselves
 in a place of loneliness.

If you’re looking to be free 
and have a love worth finding…
Come to Jesus now…  Allow his words
 of hope to be “binding.”

If you’re one who is seeking treatment
 in what you endeavor…
The promises of Christ are true
 and will last FOREVER!

He is the answer to what you desperately seek,,,
And can give you true victory each day of the week!

In the midst of this world’s temptations
 and “false allusions…”
Christ has the answer! 
 He is your true solution!

Allow his word to cleanse your mind and soul…
His blood can wash you clean 
and make you whole!

Enjoy his peace and mercy that’s
already been provided…
His love for you has long ago been decided!

Allow him to remove any embarrassment and shame!
He’s here right now…  Simply call on his name!

Meant To Be

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

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

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

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

I Care for You

you'll never be alone
as long as i care for you
Hear my whispers in the dark
my voice is clear and true
when darkeness comes
reach out for me
i'll light the night with stars 
so you could see
that you tried so hard
but it wasnt meant to be
you got so far 
you almost made it to victory
in the end
it was full of pain
it doesnt even matter
because that pain didnt stay
whenever you fall
i'll always catch you
when you've think you lost
i'll be there to remind you
you'll never be alone
as long as i care for you

Water under the bridge

You have my heart and you should know that by now,
But too often, you still find doubt somehow.
Do you really not know, that like you there will never be another?
For me, there isn’t nor will there ever be any other.
No man holds a candle to you. You are a man among men.
When it comes to this heart you win.
Why you think so little of your self I will never know.
Do you  not see the love and admiration I so blatantly show?
Do you not know that I would walk through a desert
Of burning heat, so that I could lay my heart at your feet?
Is our love on ground that shaky?
Do you really believe my love to be so flaky?
What gives you reason to be so insecure?
What more do I have to do for you to be reassured?
I thought by now these childish games would have passed?
How can you not know this love was built to last?
I am committed and dedicated not just for you,
But for myself to see this love on through.
These are the trials that separate the weak from the strong,
This is what decides who will be standing
 at the end of a day that has been too long.
This will not be our defeat, nor our downfall.
It’ just another thing, and we won’t sweat the small.
So just take my hand and let us carry on.
And soon these troubles between us will be all but gone.

Forever You by WLM created on March 20, 2011

You are the one I want 
Forever and again
To brighten my day
In each and every way
You shine as bright as the sun
With the streaming rays which fall to the earth
And your smile is as beautiful
As the stars at night and the moon so bright
With you in my life
I will have not strife
Our lives will be so content
No matter where we have went
Our love together
Will last forever
You make the dark clouds go away
With each and every passing day
There are only a few
Whom are just as you
You are perfect in every way
And this is how you will always stay
I know you will be mine
For now and for all time
We will follow the line
Our lives together will be so fine
Our love will always be new 
For me and for you

One more time

Ok, I'll play it again
we'll dance one more time 
That's us
always needing one more time

I'ts late, we're drunk on ourselves
and on Vodka
I would feel guilty if I cared
but at this moment, I feel 
well
I just feel
and that's so very nice

You are as lovely
and you smell as good
as you always did
as you first did

Happy Anniversary
Now let's go to bed

You Know Now

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

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

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

Sweet Rap

I'm gonna speak my mind, I'm gonna talk loud.
I want you to come with me, and the rest of your hot crowd.

Excuse-me-ladies, come over, and take a sip.
Please-be-with-me, I'm well equipped in the hips.

I've dreamed of you, since the day I could crawl.
Dropped my jaw, when I saw, y'all, tall, in the hall.

So, sit back, relax, on the bench, I'm the coach.
As I move close, start to make my approach.

When I look in your eyes, I can't explain how I feel.
For real, chill, in your beauty, time sits still.

I would swim the across the seas, just to get one sight.
Of all your beauty, Cutie, and to kiss you goodnight.

Drop, and hop, right over the winning team.
Cause, U without me, is like strawberries, without cream.

Just remember one thing, before my rap quit.
My name is T Rabbit and I'm your number one pick!

Burning Embers

After being together for a time of great length
I have no idea how I put up with you, or where I get the strength
You make me so furious, just so mad!
Why do I put myself through this, if I just end up being sad?
I get a reminder every morning when I turn to your side of the bed.
The passion our love used to have, a fire burning such a deep red.
Years pass and the fire dies down
I look at you and your once glowing smile, turned into a frown. 
What’s changing I really don’t know
Sometimes wondering if it was all a show…
But in the morning, breath stinky and hair a mess
I look at you and know I’m blessed. 
Because behind those eyes I see a spark
Memories of making out in the park
The only time we’d cry
is when we had to say good-bye. 
I see something that’s keeping us alive
During the screaming shouts there is something in our hearts we are trying to revive
We’re trying to rekindle the burning embers
When all of the sudden, not just our minds, but our hearts remember
We lean in for a passionate kiss
And all of the sudden, remember the feeling of bliss.
And who knew that was the fuel we needed,
A blissful kiss our hearts and lips have so deeply missed
To rekindle our fire
To rekindle our passion
To rekindle our faith and trust we had in each other.

Alone and Afraid

Alone and Afraid?

There was someone I knew,
alone and afraid...
Her husband left her…
She felt betrayed!

I remember seeing her look
of despair…
Was there anyone who
really cared?

This was a very
 difficult situation.
A lot of heartache and frustration!

I remember seeing her 
 at church before.
But no one sees her anymore!

People would pass her by,
Seemingly, not concerned…
Even though things in her life,
had taken “the wrong turn.”

Aren’t we to help the widows
 and single mothers too?
This is what God’s word 
asks of me and you!

As the body of Christ... 
We should serve one another.
Reaching out to the widow
 and single mother.

We must let them know they’re
not forgotten!
Before their lives hit
“rock bottom”

This is a command Christ 
Wants us to do!
He’d do the same for 
ME and for YOU!

Just Right

I turn
only to see your face
next to mine
Sunlight
touches the perfect spots
Heat rises
and Eyes lock
at 
the sound of your voice
saying
"Hello Beautiful"
your Lips 
to my Forehead
tell me 
I'm Special
but the faint smell of 
toothpaste and old spice
say
your day was long
your Fingers
sweep the hair from
my Eyes
and I return the favor
your Arms
pin me beneath your side
and 
I feel your Heart
beat in sync with mine
Meant To Be: In that moment, life was just right

Hell, ain't much more'n a play.
Peoples just acting the day away
T' git some roughin' later in the hay.

Been thinkin' 'bout this fer hours...
What's the deal with them flowers?
Ain't no really big WOW!ers.
Better sendin' 'em back to the plowers.

Oh yeah, and "I love you" on some dang card!?
What am I, a freakin' retard?
Mushier 'n a tub o' lard.
Y' know, after a while...
...some things just git tired.

What else I forgit?
Gifts I can't afford for s(p)it.
Lingerie or heart-shaped oven mit?
Hell, you know ain't nothin' gonna fit.

Now I know somethin' here's amiss.
Don't understand farther 'n i can piss.
There a senimenal romance somewhere's in all this.
So come on over here, darlin',...and give me a kiss.

This Father's Day

This Father's Day...
 I am so very glad.
For giving to me a 
very special dad.

I've put him through 
many trials and tears.
He's been patient and loving 
during the years.

He taught me to love
 my parents and God.
Giving godly discipiine with 
a firm hand and rod.

He was there to help me
 to understand.
With a father's love and an
 outstretched hand.

Much godly advice... 
he was willing to give. 
Teaching me how a man
 of God ought to live.

A gift from God...  
In my father, did I find.
Who was there for me
 time after time.

He provided us kids a home.  
We were blessed!
My father to me... 
 Is simply the BEST!

Can't get no better,then the best love letter,I take this as a sign,

Our Loved Ones May HURT US BUT GOD STILL LOVES US

Isn’t it amazing… The hurt and damage, someone can do? Especially by the same person who said; “I Love You!” Isn’t it amazing… How someone, which we’ve given our heart… Can betray our love, and “tear it all apart?” On that special day, when your vows were exchanged… It’s almost like “overnight,” some people change! Even amongst Christians. This seems too commonplace. As people seek their own desires… Instead of God’ grace. Isn’t it amazing… How anger, jealousy and bitterness begins? Even amongst our loved ones, that we have called “friends?” What’s more amazing… Is how God, in his mercy and care.. Still loves us. And he is always there! No matter what you’ve said… No matter what you’ll do…. God remains the same. And is always there for YOU! He is faithful. His commitment to you is strong and secure! His love is everlasting. And is 100% PURE! I stand amazed, as to how God still loves us. He asks for our heart. He wants to trust us! Won’t you come and experience his love today? He loves you so much more than words could ever say! By Jim Pemberton 10/05/11

Aleshia & Trevor: A Union Rooted In Faith

today we have gathered here on one accord
to celebrate this union orchestrated by the Lord
a marriage, that state of matrimony what our people call 'jumping the broom"
for Aleshia Zaneta, the beautiful bride and Trevor Anthony, the handsome groom

marriage is not to be taken lightly it requires a whole lot of labor
just always love and respect each other as you already have God's favor
you're evenly yoked in your faith and true disciples of Christ
remember in all things to put God first and let Him guide your lives

as a husband Trevor your role is to protect, respect and support
and never to answer that question, "honey, do I look fat in these shorts?"
as a wife Aleshia your role is to encourage, respect and keep the home neat
and train your new husband Trevor not to leave up the toilet seat

whenever I'm in the presence of the both of you
I see the love you have for each other emanating through
and when I happen to see you gazing into each other's eyes
I see the wonder on your faces that God has given you this love prize

It's May thirtieth in the year two thousand nine and we'll never forget this date
for that's when we witnessed a union of love which is rooted in faith
CONGRATULATIONS, HALLELUJAH, OH HAPPY DAY
I WRITE THIS POEM OF LOVE FOR YOU BOTH ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

I Stand Alone

My Angel....
I walk alone,I sleep alone,I cry
alone.I call them silent tears, 
Until you came into my life.

I cried no more while
you walked my side,As 
I no longer had to hide the
tears along my side.

We knew no matter where we 
were in life we would never
stand alone.

But never dreamed 
you would half to walk
Heaven's stairs alone. 

We both know a higher power pushed us
together,So never let me walk alone
please watch me from home!

The Addiction Of Pornography


The Addiction Of Pornogtaphy...

.
A Christian brother had a confession.
Pornography in his life was an addiction .
I couldn't believe the words 
I began to hear.
As a message of hopelessness from 
his lips began to appear.

I began to see tears running down his cheek.
“I go to counseling once a week.”
This was a “man of God” as many believed.
True joy and fulfillment were no longer achieved.

As the lust in his heart began to burn.
Jesus-his once true love-he longed to return.
In the coming days and weeks ahead.
So many ungodly thoughts entered his head.

He began to lose his family and all he cherished.
His life before him began to perish
Then one night in deep agony, 
to God, he cried out;
“Is this what life is really all about?”


“Dear Jesus...in repentance I come to you.”
“I have sinned against God and my family too.”
He forsook the things he thought gave him pleasure.
And lived according to God's word
—his true treasure.
Run from every evil temptation
& lust of the flesh.
Or your life will end up in a huge mess!

Pornography in your life will destroy and decay.
From it's appearance—you must run away!
Enjoy Godly relationships as
Christ meant them to be.
Walk anew in God's love—Only HE 
can SET YOU FREE!

Social networks

I blocked you today 
even though I'd love to be play offensive 
I put my fence up and filled in the trenches

See you've become unhealthy for me 
almost like consuming a piece of glass 
She has you and I've got to 
finally learn to look passed
 
You were almost like an addiction 
I almost stalked you on face book 
Dying to read a status, dying to hold on 
                 to hope.
But I got sick of dying for someday.
  
All you ever wrote about was her. 
And every time I signed on I'd curse. 
It was like self mutilation every time
I logged on because you wrote of love.
And it wasn't for me. So I've gotta let it burn.
 
I block you today. Not because I hate you. 
It's far from that. It's just I've got to get me back.
Because dealing with falling for you I kind of lost that.

This Dirty Old Man

The Dirty Old Man... 

I once knew of a dirty old man.
His way of living—I didn't understand. 
To the altar, many times he cried.
You wouldn't believe the things he tried. 

His involvement with sex became an addiction.
He began to raise quite a suspicion. 

His wife he once loved
was now despised.
I can still see the tears in her eyes. 

“What's happened to my husband?”she asked.
After she caught him in
shameful acts. 

He became so confused, 
not knowing where to turn.
As the sin in his heart daily burned. 

At church... he was one you 
could no longer find.
As God gave him over to a reprobate mind. 

The details in his life
began to unfold.
Even beyond the age I would call “old.” 

I often wonder what was uttered 
in his last breath.
As his lustful life brought
an early death. 

May you seek to live a Godly life.
Together—in God love—as husband and wife! 

Run from temptation's evil grasp.
Enjoy a Godly love with will forever last. 

His love will do what no other love can.
It will help you to be a Godly man!

Dreamer

 I thought I was fine,
Walking the line,
 Independence is a must,
When losing faith & trust,
 Acknowledging love, 2 be only lust,
And nothing more than a dream soaring threw the dust.
 A tale that was told,
When I was yet so old,
 A fabricated feeling,
To leave us needing healing.
 Thoughts of peace & happiness,
We could never touch,
 Theres something more 2 this lyfe,
Then leeving feeling rough.
 But the things that you say,
And damn baby the way,
 The love that we make,
My body just cant take,
 Emotions over ride,
My mental state inside,
 My feelings now have changed,
& I pray you feel the same.

A Blessing What is love

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

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.

Who Knew?

I woke up and rolled over,
Felt you brush against my shoulder;
I smiled.
Your laugh tickled my heart.
Our love on fire from that spark:
So worth while.
You caress me and squeeze tight,
Not too hard, but just right.
I'm weak.
I've fallen in love without knowing,
And I'm sure that it's showing:
Is this a dream?
This kind of love only happens in movies.
How did you do this to me?
How did I fall?
All I know is that I can't see
Anything but you with me.
I promise you my all,
For you to have and to hold
Until we're both really old;
And I, you.
You're all I want and need,
The best thing to happen to me.

You Were Right in Front of Me

You were right in front of me all a long
like the sweetest melody without a song,
I don't know why I just couldn't see
that you were always that one for me,
You see me like no other one can
and this is the reason why I take your hand,
Even when our paths were divided
they always met up as if they were guided, 
You were always my friend through the thick and the thin
and here is where our love can truly begin,
So baby lets go through this journey together
and promise to stay true no matter the weather, 
You're my angel sent from the heavens above
and I couldn't ask for anyone better to love.

The Return of Calm

I love those eyes which pierce my soul
They tear down walls; if truth be told

Set fires ablaze beneath my feet
Invading foggy channels, deep

Like smoldering lava, gazes burn 
Consume my heart and spirit in turn

Soon, a puddle of chocolate in his open palm 
Arrested breath hangs the return of calm

The Child, 1 2 1

A spirit as fragile as glass
A soul virgin in depth
As innocent to the world as to him or herself.
A stranger to emotions, a vessel covered in flesh and a unknown purpose here, on this earth  
to be discovered , yet.
Circumstances surrounding his or her conception is not known, but the child is a "gift" from 
one... to two...then back to one.
The Child is "joy" whether a daughter or son.
A world commanded by nine and not by ten, created of three, defined as one.
Let the writer's write about the child's world in view and inform the Gatekeeper to prepare to review .

I Just Know

There was a moment,
A solitary second in time,
When your eyes captured mine,
Sending signals of pure peace throughout me.
I knew then that you are where I need to be.
I'd always heard the stories growing up.
Happily ever afters are what little girls should want,
But I never believed them.
I never thought that someone could amaze me,
Knock me off my feet,
Make it difficult to breathe,
But you did,
And now we're here.
In this moment,
Frozen in time,
Your eyes, once again, capture mine,
And I know this is where I belong.
I never believed in happily ever after,
Never thought that it was true,
Never dreamed that it was possible
Until you.
I experience that moment,
Frozen in time,
Every time your eyes capture mine,
Making me lose my breath,
And making it hard to speak,
Let alone think,
And I know.
I just know.

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.

What If Joseph Kissed Potiphar's Wife

What If Joseph Kissed Potiphar’s Wife?

What would happen if Joseph kissed Potiphar’s wife?
Just think about the impact this would be on his life!

If he’d entered into her temptation and charm…
This would’ve cause much damage and harm!

Many of God’s blessings, I’m sure he would missed ‘em!
If he’s let Potiphar’s wife reach out and kiss him!

Thank God that he didn’t succumb to her beauty.
He held fast and remembered his God given duty!

A life serving God was something that he chose!
Even if it meant her tearing off a part of his clothes!

Godly living was something he decided to choose!
Even if it meant him being falsely accused!

God used him while he spent time in prison!
He trusted God, and knew that he was with him!

I’m sure there were things that he didn’t understand.
But soon, God made him the #2 ruler in the land!

May this be a stern warning to me and to all!
Think about what temptation may cause you to fall!

Scripture says “resist the devil and he will flee from you!”
Run to God!  And allow his presence
 to surround you!

This society often encourages to “indulge” in sexual sin!
This is where so much heartache and misery begins!

Run to the Lord!  Seek his spirit to lead and guide you!
A way to escape temptation, he’ll provide for you!

Like Joseph, run from temptation as fast as you can run!
And lay everything at the feet of God’s precious son!

His love will sustain you! Regardless of what you’re “missing.”
So you too can receive HIS love
 and Godly blessings!

First Kiss

Our First Kiss
took me by surprise

Never would I have 
thought these feelings
would arise

That kiss
made me feel
something I never felt before

And it shook 
me to the core

I felt my heart
start to race

I remember
I could feel it in my face

That tingly sensation
that led to a smile

That feeling 
I haven't felt in a while

That kiss
was the start of something real

I couldn't believe
that this is how I feel

The butterflies
started to flutter

The feeling was
like no other

You kissed me
and it changed my life

And on June 16th 
I became your wife

Then you kissed me
it took me by surprise

All of a sudden 
this feeling started to arise

You are my best friend
a partner I never had before

And still you 
shake me to the core

When I looked
at you my heart started to race

I know because I 
could feel it in my face

You gave me the tingly
sensation that led to this smile

And I know I will 
feel like this for a long while

That First Kiss changed
everything for me and you

It made my love
for you so strong and true

Our First Kiss is something
I won't ever forget

And something I won't
ever regret

So when I am asked
"What do you miss?"

My answer will always be
"Me and my husband's First Kiss"

Do you care

On the high way
My side mirror recalls
The object that appear
Are closer then 
They seem to be…
Yet so close we are
Taking destiny for ride
Many are a head and 
Many behind, on road
Wondering in this city.
Tales of 1000 souls
I am one of them with little
Blessing to share. 
My believe, My Prayers 
To Lord, is driven by Job
My Visa, my rent, my bills
Run in the veins of my day.
Morning, I do open my eyes 
Only to report to job, 
My wife, my children and my God
Await my return by night.
I recall not, what I did last night
When I slept, what my wife said,
Not even my child’s smile
Yet my 9 to 5 schedule is perfect
Morning open with coffee on gas stations
Traffic on highways, on city road
Fines and radars, mobiles and overspend
Frustrated yet have to drive a head
Slow in fast lane with mobile on ear
Or lady, prejudice it may seem
But I recall it in my car, another
Guy flying in his accord, reads a sign
“just cruising”, damn with smile.
Switching between channels, 
Some jams, some songs to hear
Discussion VoiceBoards, interviews
Money minutes, gold rates
Some blast, some peace deals
What a way, to say Good morning.
Yet hope I am not fired today, 
As the morning news did say recession 
Job cuts and job losses, long leave
Companies disappearing, stocks diving
Face book blocked in offices
Looks a gloomy day.
Yet hope drives my day, a head
Beyond my reach some time
I finish my job, drive home,
Just a pleasant look on my child
A warm welcome from my wife
Makes me human from machine.
Taking deep breath of relieve 
I thank God, for all His mercy
And pray for Goodness tomorrow
And wish for all those left jobless
Lay in the arms of  beloved
I dream, with hope for better
Tomorrow.

''Petals Of Love''

~Caress my cheek
with your velvet
touch.
Soft,flowing,you
drape over me.
Arms extended,I
lavish in hearts'
erotic state.
Feeling as if
gravity never
existed.
Our passion never to
be resisted.
We share the desire
for petals of love~

Keeper of My Heart

"Keeper of My Heart"

He who holds the key holds the future of my life,
He who has the key may have me for his wife,
He who wears the key wears the symbol of my Love,
He who possesses the key possesses my future blood,
He who uses the key will be granted access to me,
He who knows me will be rewarded royally,
He who keeps the key is the Keeper of my Heart,
and he may use the key until death do us part,
but he cant try the key unless he's ready to start,
because the key means infinity for "The Keeper Of My Heart."

Lasting Love

Ravaging roundness renews romance when you are near.
Your raspberry shaded lips linger lovingly to be admired.
Firm and flavorful, flirtingly flaunting each New Year.
Succulent and sweet, sending Sapphic desires inspired.

Latitude of our lasting love litigates to our passion.
Summarizes sensuality securing the scent which fires,
Excitement and endearment, enriching eager fashion,
For favorable forever fervor, fuels favorite desires.

Raspberry aroma allures anticipation of one kiss from thee.
Luscious lips of my LuAnn, I await, another kiss for me.

ADDICTED TO YOU by Collice Rodrigues

I wish to breathe my last breath in your arms

You’re the one to kill me with your charms

Everybody coaxed me to avoid you but no

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

 

This world is cruel it has always made me cry

You take me to heaven and teach me to fly

You taught me how to deal with my pain

Without you barren would my life remain

 

You take me to a different world as I hallucinate

And all the pleasures of life you begin to recreate

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

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

 

Your absence makes me restless it’s you I need

I am an addict and you are marijuana my weed

I got addicted to you that I intentionally chose

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

Make A Stand

It's not her,
But it's them,
For now, she can't do anything.
Just patience & keep things hidden.


still so many unresolved issues,
to others & to herself.
She needs to take the risk,
a giant step, to conquer, to cease.

Because it's not running away,
But protecting people who stayed.
she's not against everyone,
Not hiding, just in need of healing.

It wasn't just about her, after all.
But about everything that made her fall.
So they should understand,
that soon enough, it's her time to make a Stand.

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

Breakfast Love

Breakfast begins with out a care
 Waffles and applesauce
 Thats what love is
 This mourning here with you
 I just reminisced 
Our first kiss
 And this mourning
 It's applesauce to you
 And just because
 I hit life's pause
 I now give sauce
 And it's because 
Of the things you do

Faith: The Antidote to Man's Midlife Crisis

It's raining and the sun has returned home
although I am by myself, yet I am not alone
mind engages intellect, with time to consider
how this heart of mine, has grown so bitter

Not long ago, reflections of the past were a delight
then in a brief moment, my happiness took flight
once having a life with meaning, love and security
now with remorse and desire, for a heart with purity

Continuing to pursue life normally, while anxieties drown the mind
no matter what I might do, any sense of happiness seems confined
confused with mixed emotions, and knowing that they are both true
yet despite my conflict, still mustering the will to tell her, I love you

With each and every passing day, I look forward to behold
once again to greet those yesterdays, those yesterdays of old
but those yesterdays are buried, the fear of the future takes hold
all of what now remains, are those few tomorrows left to unfold

Worries must stem from this lack of control, how not to consider
thinking of how few years are left to live, could anyone not be bitter
the unknown of what the rest of your life will bring, an awesome fear
when you advance in years, only then does it become all too clear

Times passes, the body ages, memories flounder, and reality sets in
maybe tomorrow the mail will arrive, addressed to: The Next of Kin
finding yourself in an emotional upheaval, there is but one thing to do
forage deep down inside, and uncover your faith, your only rescue

Faith will give you the strength, it will guide you to trust in the One above 
fears of the future and of the unknown, disappear in this world called love
experiencing midlife crisis, something you can and will successfully overcome
but first never stop searching, trusting in G-d, and to depression never succumb

An Angel Named Kenny

Kenny I don't know why I get so crazed
sometimes some things just become a haze
I wish I could see myself the way you see me
then all my insecurities could be set free
your my angel sent from my heavens above
that I cherish so dearly like an eagle or dove
your passion released me of all my chains
and gave me love to where ones heart would never strain
I just want you to know that I will love you forever
through all the pain and stormy weather!

My Love Bendeth Near

My love says I shall not beguile you with my tongue, but rather with my soul. “Go, do not be a prisoner to my heart or fettered by my rose, for I give it freely, having picked it clean from its thorns so it may not prick thy finger. For it be naught thy blood I wish to draw, lest I use it as a balm to soothe thy soul

Accept my flower...for it is given freely to send thoughts of a lover’s song to tug at thy ear. If doors before have sent you wandering... become a dweller at my tree for I am the root, therefore, I become the leaves that shade you from blisters of the sun that rendereth rays too harsh for thy tender skin

Eat not the bread of those with an eye to devour thy soul, but nourish thy self with the drink of my wine given to quench thy throat when you are dry of thirst. For it is a true heart that bendeth close to draw you near to me. Allow my light to shine in thy soul, breathing solace to thy weary heart.

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!”

Marriage Is Under Attack Like Never Before

Marriage Is Under Attack Like Never Before! Marriage is under attack… And it’s because… So many people have trampled “God’s set of laws…” What once was ordained as “God’s order of unity…” Has often resulted in so much “infidelity…” The God given covenant between a woman and a man… Is so distorted… How can one truly understand? All the way from Genesis to Revelation… God made it clear from the time of creation… It was Adam and Eve from the very start… As Eve was formed from a rib… Close to Adam’s heart. They were joined together by their God above… Being a symbol of his creation and never-ending love This same God is the redeemer of your very soul… It’s only in him that you can be complete and whole! You are invited to join the marriage supper of the lamb… Christ is the bridegroom and is waiting for your hand! Won’t you accept God’s proposal he offers to you? He’s given the invitation… What will you do? He’s coming for a bride who’s sins are washed away! Won’t you accept his proposal of love… Today? He remains faithful… And forever true! And has already said the words; “I DO!” By Jim Pemberton

New Beginning

Introduction: It’s a piece dedicated to the lullaby of a different kind. It’s something which has happened to many out there, but the experience is distinctively significant…


A priceless surprise, silenced all in its tune By a soft heavenly cry, from the delivery room Only a few hours was the night; so young Where for the first time, she opened her eyes, While by her side her dearly loved one For the last time, closed her teary eyes Father held her near and resounded to her cry; But all mother could share was, this lullaby – The long last beep from the ECG Echoed her heartbeat…The last goodbye Happiness and sadness broke through the night With streams of tears for mother’s plight; She never had the chance to hold her close But left precious prayers that never left her side As she came down to their hearts Her soul flew up high apart, The transfer of two lives through one, Their journey was complete and done Caught within that reverie He conveyed the Azaan through her ears, In the wake of such irony He fell down to prostrate in tears When all hopes seemed to end, father’s prayer did transcend O’ Almighty became her closest friend and had for her a Grande plan, Under HIS mercy and HIS guide, she flourished through the darkest nights To a new beginning – she set off to write.

"Michelle & Mookey"

Mookey and Michelle were lovers                           
Oh, how they could love                              
they were faithful until something went wrong                                                             
he loved her, but something is wrong                        

Michelle Is a good wife to him                               
that’s what he said                                                    
spent 50 dollars to by her man a picture                          
he loved her, but something is wrong	           

Michelle called his cousin                               
Just to see if he was there                                             .
said: brother-in-law,Has my baby been here?                                           
he loved her, but something is wrong

the gal is Tiffany Jones                                                 
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle went down to the bar                                     
Didn’t go to drink                                                         
underneath her shirt she carried a nine-milli gun                                           
he loved her, but something is wrong                           

Michelle looked over the car to see if he was there                                                    
there was Mookey on the stool holding Tiffany’s hand                                                 
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle stooped down beside the car   
Pop ,pop ,pop ,pop four shot let out
Right through the door
he loved her, but something is wrong

The first two hit Mookey
She heard him yell out in pain
The third one hit Tiffany in the leg
There were two new faces in hell
he loved her, but something is wrong
                               
“Oh, it hurt, he yell
His left side was bleeding 
Her left leg bleeding
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle looked out the jailhouse
To see the beautiful life.
She could see the birds flying, she could hear them sing
he loved her, but something is wrong

Michelle said to the sheriff, “What is my punishment? ”
Sheriff said, “Michelle,It’s the electric chair for you”
he loved her, but something is wrong

This story is crazy but true,that shows that it is true
When people say men ain’t no good
he loved her, but something is wrong

Not Just another Love Poem

Love is discovered in so many ways
Different kinds we share today
For love is near, not far away
Have you discovered your love today?

Every time a mother gazes at her new born baby
Love is discovered in another way
A mother’s love does not change
It only grows as her child changes

A Father’s pride is how he shows his love
Love is discovered in another way
A father’s love is always shone through pride
In the works his children have done

When a child gets a pet
Love is discovered in another way
A child’s love is unchanged
Tears fall when the pet finally goes away

As we grow and as we change
Love is discovered in new ways
Be you a husband, father, mother, or wife
Love is sure to follow you all of you life

He Is

I met someone... he's not perfect,
I have met no-one that is,
He cherishes my emotions and my thoughts,
his touch gives me chills.
 
He protects me daily,
ensuring that I'm good.
His intelligence captivates me
for a nigga from the hood.
 
His kisses are tender,
His voice is so real,
His touch is captivating,
He oozes appeal.
 
He is down with the hood,
He shines above the elite,
He is a thug, a gentleman,
He knocks me off my feet.
 
Our lives are intertwined,
Something absolutely surreal,
He is always on my mind.
Come on guys, I hope you understand how I feel.
 
He loves my mother, my daughter, my sisters,
He knew them all this time,
He was always there, but we never crossed path,
My awesome days begin to unwind.
 
We want each other so badly,
Our alone time is never grey,
This nigga has me,
Thinking of him night and day.
 
The beauty is we understand each other,
Which makes this love so pure,
We respect each other's space,
Therefore there are no hardships to endure.
 
His swagga is appealing, you gotta take a look,
For when he passes by, his presence stands out,
And his words got you hooked...
His culture is so similar to mine,
He likes being around the grill,
I love my kitchen time.
 
I feel like I've known him for years,
He is a family friend,
But he never crossed my path,
Until years after when.
 
I think I found a best friend,
A business partner I can trust,
Someone genuine to my family and I,
With charisma as an added plus.
 
****sigh****
 
I am happy with my life.
No more fusses,
No more fights.
 
****smiles****
 
Thank you dude, for being a wonderful addition to being a part of my daily life.

DEAR LOVE

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.

Kate's Bible Add On

And it came to pass that they ate their dinner
and that she did washeth up.
And she did leave the dishes to drain
Whilst she put on the washing machine.
and the man was very pleased.

And it further came to pass
that she gave the man some pudding
and he was more pleased.
And then it came to pass the he fell asleep
By the fire.

And the Lord God,said
who is this man that sleepeth by his fire?
And he said,I shall waken him up
And the man awoke,
And God spake unto him

How is it that the woman laboureth in ye kitchen.
And that thou sleepeth here in an armchair.
and the man said,
but Thou didst order women to labour.
And the Lord God said unto the man
Why dost Thou remember so selectively what I have said?
And the man said,
I knoweth not and therefore I will help this woman.
And the Lord God said,
Why dost thou not think of it thyself?
And the man said in reply,
It was Thou that made me,O God.

And the Lord God was displeased with the man.
so he called down a plague of butterflies
To prevent him from sleeping.
And when the woman came in
she was much pleased to see these butterflies
and so she fell onto the man
And he did make love unto her.
And the cat was very pleased.

For it thrilled him to watch humans mating
and gave him hope
That the Lord God would take his rib and make a mate for him.
And indeed it doth seem to have happened
Judging by all the cats staring in ye old window here
And by their ecstatic yelps
That the Lord God was very generous with them
and made them many mates.
For truly there is no jealousy among them
And they mate freely and happily
and never have rows about the washing up..as they eat straight from the can.Amen

Here endeth thy lesson for today.

The :Look On My Child's Face In An Ordinary Place


Just yesterday I noticed a look of
 love on my child’s face.
This happened in a most  “ordinary place.”

It was in our home...a place
 by God’s own design.
I felt God speaking to my heart
 this particular time.

I didn’t take any time to
 stop and realize,
The look of love and innocence
 in my child’s eyes.

“Am I being the kind of Dad
 God wants me to be?”
“Am I being an example of Christ
 for my child to see?”

Have I been demonstrating my
 God-given ability,
teaching my kids God’s love,
 and responsibility?

May a Christ-like life in my kids
 be clearly seen and understood,
As one day they will 
grow into adulthood.

I hope that one day my
 Children will say:
“I want to be like my Dad-
every single day!”

Bella

Bella
She came like a wind like a hurricane
But this hurricane bought life in my world
This  hurricane got light in darkness
It wasn’t none like the other we see
It bought me happiness
Once again a reason to live for
The courage to dream for
The passion to love for
That hurricane was Bella
My bella my very own Bella
Sukis bella no matter how hard I try to or what I say 
I could never tell her the depth of my love for her 
She is the very reaon I write this
She is the very reason I had waited all my life to be with
My bella no matter what the world may say or any one else may say
Nothing could ever change what we have no one could even imagine what we have 
What we share is a pure blessing from the heaven above.
The feeling of true unbarred love the will to put everythin on the line for each other
Is a bond we share and we would share through out until the end ignoring what others have 
to say
This is to my Bella my dear sweet caring Bella 
The Bella I love with all my heart and shes is the one I shall protect until I shall fall.

More

love tailed me as I tripped
I just fell over into love, a beautiful gift
Honesty and sincerity hung it's self at the door
Wills and wants and thoughts I'd never had before

Caught between will and want, feelings poured
wisdom and enlightenment at the brink
I felt as if marriage might help even our score
A ring on your finger might be the missing link

Or a certificate on the wall it all made me think
I wanted to get married again I still wanted more
I wished our love to be among legend and lore
I wanted it to be us straight through to the core

Soldiers return

Soldiers return

I lay
Half asleep
In my bed
As a new television show
Appears on the screen.

A woman
With ribbon tied over her eyes
To hide her sight
As her husband
Walks in the room
Wearing Army greens.

He slowly takes it off
As tears fall down her cheeks
As she holds him 
In her arms.

A small child
Comes from her room
With a big smile
On her face
As she jumps on her father.

Her head rest
On his shoulder
As she quietly speaks
"I missed you daddy."

His lip quivers
As he cries softly 
And says,
"I missed you too. I'll never leave you again."

Beautiful Fairytale

The woman stares out the frosted window,
Shoulders covered in her cream colored shawl.
She begins to sing “beautiful fairytale, beautiful fairytale.”

Her husband’s truck rumbles around the corner of the little
Dirt road, She lights up like a shooting star across the night sky.

She stares at the dark complexion of his skin, and his golden brown
Hair, and his ocean blue eyes, as he walks up the path lined with white
Picked fence. 

He twirls her around and plants a kiss on her soft pink lips.
She Flashes him a smile.

She says to her husband: “My, I sure am happy  your home” with her
rather southern accent.  

“Me too. Me too.” He says smiling down at her.

a poem for a blind wife from her deaf husband

the aim of this poem is very simple

only want to tell you that the clothes
we wore on our wedding were light green, but
the leaves used to wrap the wedding cakes were a darker green.
sure, both are green, but a different green, my dear. 

a flowery headband tuck into your hair
you may feel it but might not know
that the flowers are white jasmines

on my head, nestle a pair of doves, also white.
i always imagined us, that day,
as a pair of trees in the spring.
you were a blossoming tree.
i was a tree where doves nest. 

i saw people came and smile.
they talked while enjoying the food.
but what they were talking about, i could not hear.
care to tell me, dear?

NOTHING Yes I Said Nothing Can Separate Us From God's Love


Though in this world, we so often trod…
NOTHING can separate us 
from the love of God!

Neither tribulation, 
distress or persecution…
Nor the government or it’s institutions.

Neither nakedness, peril
 or even the sword...
 God’s love is a treasure that can’t be stored!

As it is written; “We are like sheep
 led to the slaughter…”
But God loves every son and daughter.

In everything, we’re more than conquerors
 through Christ who loves us…
His death on the cross means
 that he wants us!

Neither death, the angels or
 the principalities to be…
Things present or to come…
Can separate HIS love for me!

Nor height, depth or any kind of creature…
Can separate us from God’s love…  
This is his feature!

His love is clearly evident 
and reigns supreme.
Over all of the earth and every human being!

Why not accept his love… 
That is inseparable?
By accepting HIS salvation.  
He’s made this possible!

Now is the day of salvation. 
 His gift is for us to receive.
All you have to do is reach out to him… 
And simply believe!

If Only You Really Knew

I cant go and I can't leave 
I'm sadly broken from within between
I know that I probably should go
but every time my heart keeps telling  me, "no!"
you've changed so much, 
and you've lost your light,
now your filled with anger and spite.
you've stolen my happiness and my pride
you call me names and watch me cry
all my tears, sinking into all my fears.
you sit back and laugh with all the guys
joking like my misery is your biggest prize
when I met you , you were something so special,
something that shined like a ruby or crystal.
now your dull you should be ashamed,
your a little boy , you will never change.
god will give back what you've been giving
take this as a lesson in life's finer living. 
kindness and compassion can go a long way
maybe you should remember that, it could help you out some day :) 



This is actually a song that I wrote, Hope you enjoy! :) 
                                                 With Love,

Loving You

I want you, I miss you, I love you so much.
When I'm next to you, I'm sensitive to your touch!
Emotions are flowing very strong and deep,
With a love like ours, I don't have to creep.
Holding you gently and tenderly in my arms,
I love lying next to you because you're soft and warm!!
Hold me, love me, and squeeze me tight,
Remember my love, it's not just for one night!!!

YOU ARE MORE PRECIOUS

You Are More Precious! You are more precious than silver or gold, More precious to me than could ever be told. My love for you is deep and endless, nothing can compare with it... I’s so wondrous!

Whatever path of life you may take, My love will be there for you— like an open gate… By Jim Pemberton

Kiss the Salt from My Tears

and when I start 
to cry from joy 
kiss the salt from

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"..

The saga of the dusty road

The Saga of dusty roads of Utah 
(To the memory of Don W. Esplin, father of Kathryn Esplin-Oleski)
= =
There he was playing with some mild explosives, 
in his own backyard, a resolute boy he is; 
the June month had swelled like the taut belly of 
a neighborhood lady; the boy wanted to be 
a scientist which he became. He, of course could not 
envision that all these sepia dust of Utah, 
the noon backyard and a young scientist’s narrative 
would be remembered by his explosive daughter 
and a strange Indian was going to pen a saga. 

Alfred Nobel was smiling from a page of a book 

The boy rolled a cigarette, the smoke’s curlicues 
swirl up to grain the picture. A blast almost choked
the bright blue jays and robins. Defused sun slanted.
The end of the road was just an end of the road 
where sun could meet earth, warm grass shook off the heat 
and the covert window of the farm house would yield 
a father and son talk. Strong argument on
future, on an university, on money 
on a world that could differ in generations;
of course the boy, as a father, understood 
his girl, then living apart. But distance is in heart.
He would grow up midst dreams. A quirky wind would blow him 
here and there; navy, marriage and science, 
pharmacology and marriage again; a gust
of wind would take him on a ride that, if he could 
read this he would have said, resembled his truck rides 
down the roads of Utah. But at that point of time
he was wide awake inside his misty night’s sleep 
and an American novel is shooting up 
its multiple heads in search of fresh oxygen. 
The waves of moon were enjoying a full tide.

Did You Know Love Was In An Accident

Did you know, Love was in an accident?

What! When? Where? Wow!  My, my. Tell me it’s a lie.
Can we pause for a moment of silence, focusing on love? Hold on there, love not gone. It’s real, but love wasn’t killed.

When did it happen? It was yesterday evening, I’m believing. It happen, when love was leaving. Everything seem peaceful, it was a lovely day, so they say.

Where was love? In a quite restaurant enjoying a delicious meal. And in came the unreal.  Love was taken by surprise; no one thought love would survive.

Wow!  All were speechless, love seem so powerless. As if someone had stolen all the joy. I am telling you what I know, but I suppose there is more.

I had warned love to be very careful. Always check out your company.  Don’t be in a hurry; look in all directions before proceeding, and definitely no speeding.

Poor love.  Made an illegal turn, and ran head on into trouble. Had a concussion and saw double. Forgot the basic rules of the game; avoid some situations, its okay to be ashame.

I believe love will learn to yield the right of way, on the next given day. It really didn’t have to be this way.

Innocent bystanders saw what happen to love. They said a few kind words while looking above. Someone dialed 1-800-Broken-Heart. It didn’t take long, the crew arrived and love was still alive.

Love is in therapy and recovering from love-gitis. They said it could have been worst; thank God there was no Funeral Hurst.

Sometimes our hearts get the best of us, especially in tender moments, warm occasions and special situations.

Thank you love, live long and always remember, sometimes things go wrong.
Have A Lovely Day…

Anniversary

Birthdays when you are old reminds you of the grave, 
you see it a freshly dug hole waiting just for you. 
People bring you wine, what else do an old man needs? 
Guests getting high on wine they brought you and it is all 
jolly. I try to join in. wife has made an effort candlelight 
and so on guests are people I never see unless meeting 
them at a pretentious art exhibition; and I think of my 
childhood when birthdays were important, I tell stories 
of a past of poverty and need; wife disrupts saying 
I should forget about the past, how can I it shaped me 
for what I´m today?  Cakes I think of are those I never had 
in my infancy; cakes I baked, with condensed milk, when 
the captain had his birthday -if he was an ass hole I spat in 
the dough-, on ships made into nails somewhere in hot 
Bangladesh. How tired I´m lost in the past. Guests leave 
the old man´s party, but my wife is not stunned when calm 
falls I have to collect the dirty glasses and do the dishes.

A Special World

A special world for you and me
A special bond one cannot see
It wraps us up in its cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its womb.

Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nestling us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last.

And though at times a thread may break
A new one forms in its wake
To bind us closer and keep us strong
In a special world, where we belong.

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.

Have You Been Found GUILTY I Have The Answer

Guilty As Charged?  Try Jesus!

There was a woman caught in an adulterous act.
Her accusers came after her with all of the “facts…”

She came to Jesus. .. With a heart-felt plea.
“Master….”  “Have mercy on someone like me!”

Jesus looked at her as she wept and cried.
So many other things she had already tried.

Coming to Jesus… She felt scared and alone…
Jesus told her accusers; “You without sin.” 
 “Throw the first stone.”

One by one… They dropped the stones and fled.
Rather than face the truth… 
 They ran away instead…

Jesus told the woman; “Your forgiven.” 
 “Go and sin no more…”
She was the meaning of what 
God’s grace was meant for.

If you’re caught in a situation,
 with “no way out…”
This is what the meaning
 of salvation is all about!

Any “accusers” you may have,
 will quickly run and hide.
When to Jesus you come…  
And have him “on your side…”

Allow the master to cleanse your life this very hour…
And experience the love of his life-changing power!

He’ll take you in with his arms wide open.
“You’re forgiven!”  Will be the lovely words spoken!

Be “caught up” in the savior’s 
redeeming grace…
He’ll give you hope and put a smile
 on your face!

Does Money Own You

The game of life is filled with greed,
People that are eager to fill a need
Money takes first place,
While what is most important becomes erased
Family’s pay a price
Just to have something nice,
You can’t take it when you die
None of this will matter in the sky.

Yet so much damage is caused by the dollar
It does not take being a well known scholar
To see the effects of what it brings
Look around at everyone and everything
People have killed themselves over stocks
While there are so many children that don’t even have socks.

Money is good to have, but not when it makes you go mad
Many have sold their souls just to obtain the most
Inside it's their "god" and has become their personal ghost,
Their wants grow into unfruitful trees,
Little streams become ravenous seas.

When you put it all into perspective,
When you know the true meaning of life,
It’s not about what materials you have,
It is about if you lived in peace, or in strife,
Did you get to enjoy your children, husband or wife?

Suburban Dream

I can be your sister and your brother
Your husband and your mother
I’ll bake and clean and treat you mean
Be your quarter back on our own private team
I’ll prepare your meals and iron your clothes
Leave your supper on the table as I walk out of the door
Let you wonder if I really am at the store?

I can be your superhero and save your life
I can be your number one fan, your right hand man
Your enemy sinister and wise
You are my teacher when I cross the line
And I’m your master when you say your mine
Sell my body and soul to keep food on your plate
Let you believe no one has ever touched me like that

I’ll be your secretary when your too weak to speak
You can use and abuse me and make me feel cheap
I can be your very best childhood friend
Your nurse by your side at the very end
I’ll keep you sane as you lose your teeth and mind
Tell you the world hasn’t really changed outside
Place flowers in your hair as your body starts to fail
Cut your food into pieces when your hands become frail
Smile and tell you that all is well
When inside I’m dying and feeling like hell

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

This Habit's Got A Hold Of Me I Can't Break It

This habit has a hold of me. ..
 I can’t seem to break it!
I’m so discouraged  …  I can’t “shake it!”

I don’t know what to do, or where to turn…
When I tell others about it. 
 They’re not concerned…

What am I going to do in a situation like this?
It seems like my life is just one huge mess!

The “satisfaction” I seek… I haven’t obtained.
I’ve only myself…  And no one else to blame…

Many discouraging thoughts 
have entered my head.
Each night I cry out loud before going to bed…

I can’t think or do anything like I once did.
I don’t know how much longer
 I ‘m going to live.

Can you help me Jesus?  I know that you can.
There’s no one else who’ll listen
 or understand…

I’m going to get on my knees and begin to pray…
And ask for God’s help.  I’ll do it TODAY!

I trust his power to break this habit of mine…
This is the hour!  This is the time!

I need true freedom.  And a love that will last.
Everything I’ve tried…  Disappears fast!

To you Lord Jesus I give my life that’s broken.
“Please come into my heart…”
  Are the words spoken.

“Help me Lord to have victory within…”
“And thank you Lord for being my friend!”

My Love

You tell me that you love me
And I know that this is true
I feel it in every word you say
And in everything you do
We've had our share of ups & downs
All the couples do
But the difference between us & them...
We have faith & push on through.
You never mind to wait on me 
To do my hair & nails
You tell me that I'm beautiful
Even when I look like hell.
Our past has made us stronger
It's made us who we are
We started out as kids in love
Our love has come so far.
So here is to my one true love
With whom I'll share my life
I can't express how blessed I feel
To know that I'm your wife.

Remember When

Remember When
Remember when I was twenty
and you were only twenty-four?
Remember how you looked at me
and how my eyes rested on yours?
Remember the eyelash on your fingertip
and how you blew it away?
Remember my prayer, my wish
and what I wanted you to say?
Remember the pounding of our hearts
as love embraced our very souls?
You and I
Have known each other from long ago
Before there was life
Before there was breath.

Fire, the flames of all my desires.
Heat, the sensation that makes me 
weak.
Emotions, my missions to keep 
discreet.
The more he knows, the easier my 
guard faces defeat.
Weakness, the tremble that 
unsteady's my feet.
Strength, is my better half, he's here 
when I need.
Faith, is Gods security given to you 
& me.
Patience and understanding is 
knowing when to take heed.
Sorrow, is 
overwhelming,overcoming and 
deep.
But pain is the one to really make us 
weep.
Compassion is something that all of 
us need.
To get threw this life, it is needed 
indeed.
To the ones that doubt me, I'm tellin 
'ya don't sleep.
I may be calm & quite but I only act 
meek. 
To walk in my shoes, & to see what 
I've seen,
I promise, you wont be the one to 
judge me.
& to Luis , my man, the love of my 
life.
This love, our love, I don't have to 
think twice.
Our life,our plans,our path that we 
lead,
I promise you baby I will never 
retreat.
To my children, whom I love & will 
one day have to leave,
Forgive me for all the times I let my 
emotions make me weak.
And know that I love you, and you 
guys I did need.
Without you I would never 
appreciate what I achieve.
To my mother whom I did have the 
pleasure to meet.
Letting me go was the best decision 
your mind ever could've conceived.
TO my father who left me alone in 
the streets,
Without you was harder, but could 
never stop me.
One thing I know,I can feel it so 
deep.
God made me stronger than I could 
ever believe.
MY strength, My tolerance,  My 
endurance I keep.
Continuing my life & trying to 
conquer my dreams.
No matter what happens,what ever 
will be,
I will be happy no matter who 
doubts me.

Finding Your Heart

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

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

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

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

Why i fight for this country

It’s foggy
I see people in the background
Running back and forth
But I can't make out who they are
 
I walk closer to see who they are
It looks like a girl
I get closer, she starts to run
Time for the chase, a chase to see who it is
 
I see a house, she runs inside
It’s a big blue house with a large front yard and a white picket fence
I knock on the door to see if anyone’s home
I walk in and in the house the fog has followed me in
 
I hear creaking foot steps coming from upstairs
I slowly walk up and stare at the wall
Its picture of me with an unknown family
A son, 2 daughters and a beautiful wife
 
I’m standing in the background in my navy whites
Where is this place, who are those persons?
Whose house is this?
Where are all the people?
 
I make it up stairs and see the children’s room. 
Daughters. It looks like twins, twins sleeping in the room all tucked in
The fog is slowly clearing, I’m getting confused
What life if this, whose shoes are these?
 
I walk further down the hall,
The next room is his.
The son in the picture,
Full of trophies and figs.
 
He looks like a sports jock
How many trophies he has
He’s sleeping with his shirt off
But still tucked in like a kid
 
I say good night
And slowly close the door
I feel this is natural
As I see his night light turn on.
 
I continue with my journey
With every step the fog clears
I see the master bedroom
And take a peek whose inside
 
I see a women, her back is turned
The women in the photo but can make out her face.
I can hear her laugh
My heart it pumping
She says to me "you’re finally home!"
 
Sounds like an angel sing
Who is this woman, what is this feeling?
She has her faced turned to her shoulder, like she wants to speak
Still can’t make out her face, its very mystique.  
 
I walk closer, I see her ring
Could this be the love of my life?
I get a little closer to see who she is
I trip and fall down 8 feet into the rhib
 
I’m on a small boat in the water splashing. 
Was I dreaming, or did that happen?
 
It’s the life I dreamed,
What I wish I had.
I fight for this country 
So everyone else can have
 
The dream that I wished for
Everyday I wake
I gave up my dream
So the whole world can take it.

Do We Have An Example Just ONE

Do We Have An Example?

Do we have an example of those
 who aren’t afraid to say…
“I’m going to bow my head
 to the Lord and pray.”

Do we have an example of those with a like mind?
To be respectful, courteous and kind?

Do we have an example of those who’ll take a stand?
Against the tide of evil 
all throughout this land?

Do we have an example?  Just one person?
Who’ll live by the Bible… 
And apply it’s lessons?

Do we have an example of those
 to teach the younger generation…
Living for God will give us a solid foundation?

Do we have an example?  Anyone to be found?
Who’ll spread the gospel 
to every city and town?

Do we have an example?  Can we look to YOU?
Who’ll try to live the way Jesus wants us to?

Can we find an example? With the courage to live?
Being Christ example with the power to FORGIVE!

Can we find an example?  Let me make this point.
There’s Jesus!  And he will  NEVER disappoint!

Can we trust this example?  Most assuredly YES!
In HIM can you find a security,
 a peace and a REST!

Will you be an example? And give your life to him?
And experience what it means to be “born again!”

His example of love can be yours and mine…
Won’t you give HIM a chance?
  While there’s still time?

Dont Love Now

That was a great moment
When my house was filled fully
With relatives, friends and new guests around.

Dad keeping busy, mom arranging,
Friends amusing, cousins entertaining,
I was immersed  within relishable tension.

Relaxing myself and taking a deep breath,
I entered in and bid all a traditional HI..
Focusing him at cross eyes.

We kicked off with a sparking smile,
It lasted for a couple of seconds,
Bowed my face with a sharp shy

It was like left in a green field
Filled with elite flowers and touchable stars..

Got a call the next day,
Informing I was selected in the race.
Everyone was tied with anxiety.

Following bundles of discussions,
In addition to my sanctions,
My phone digits were added to his ring up lists.

He first marched with the word ‘Hello’,
I continued with ‘Who is this!!!’
He prolonged with ‘The one who is supposed to rule u’.

Recognizing whom it was?? It was like-
Millions of butterflies flew under my belly,
Dribbles clogging upon the throat..

Fearing what to talk,
I blabbered, he laughed.
He nattered, I pinned my ears in.

One side was this path of unseen Love and commotion 
Other side was a bargains and organization.
The deal ended up with beginning of new covenant in the place of worship.

That was not only a reception but also a farewell,
Final byes to the friends,  adieus to cousins, cries to parents,
I was put into a family unit.

	He held my both hands, kissed at its palms,
	Looked directly into my eyes,
	Made me know what I mean to him..

When my nervousness overruled,
	he replaced with calmness.
When I met agitation,
	he created coolness.
When I feared on something,
	he hugged for many things.
When I worked restless,
	he comforted.
When I worried,
	he cheered up.
Whenever I was disquieted,
	he educated reality in precise.
He did them because he was the one who
	understood me next to GOD..

Accomplished castle in the sky
Daydreamt while missing each
Visualized our masked future
Engaged with enthusiastic honest instants
Managed enjoyments and working schedules
He provided a completely satisfied Life
Failed to remember my past failures in relationships
Brought me entire Heaven inside this tiny earth
Cant imagine what I’m without him
None ever could restore his standard

All I Need

All I Need... By Candice 

I lay my head on your chest
and the stresses of the day melt away
as the soft rhythmic beating of your heart
puts me in my safe place.
A place so comfortable that my body
seems to melt into yours
and we become one.
The soft kisses you place on my forehead
warm my body with a euphoria that
no street drug could mimic.
My safe haven is your arms...
My lullaby is your heartbeat...
and my addiction is this wonderful man
who cradles me like a child.
This man who protects me.
This man who takes it upon himself
to ensure my safety...
and at the days end,
When I am tucked away in your blanket of protection,
I know that this is where i have longed
to be all day.
Right here...
Right Now...
This is all I need.

Through the Years

Through The Years

Trough the years my love for you has bloomed
Bursting with vibrancy, the petals of love reaching up toward the light
Like my loving arms longing to embrace you
Through the years our bond has become resilient
Like the roots of a Sequoya, rooted deep, unmovable
I fear I can’t love you enough for my satisfaction 
But day by day my love increases, feeding my wanting soul
Filling me with joy
Through the years we have struggled and strived
From thick to thin, through harsh and mild
Battling life’s adversaries side by side
Our version of Bonnie and Clyde
Through the years I have seen you grow and transform
Becoming the man I didn’t know you could be
So subtle and distinct like the musk of the Egyptians
Would I have know the man you have become 
Through the years my love has elevated to an exceptional level
It soars up high on the wings of an Eagle
Kissing and caressing the sky
Like the sweet kisses you lavish on my willing lips
Through the years our souls have become intertwined
Twisting and fortifying the strands of our hearts
Making what was once two become one
Changing our once eager love into our now total adoring devotion
Such a journey we have made is not for the faint of heart
This story we have written not intended for the novice 
A picturesque love we have nurtured and cherished
My love we have made it……..
Through the years

Caught, he lied to her;
His ebullient smile said all,
On the couch he sleeps.

Just in time

There was a time in my life
when I was lonely and broken
I would sing many a song
but It was His words unspoken.
One glance.
A meeting of Chance.
The wounds were all healed.
but scars still reviled .
Was it an inchanted spell
love was not just a fairy tale,
But it is more precious than Gold.
A precious treasure to behold.
I began to view the world as a new born child
seeing things through eyes of love so mild
Compassion for my fellow man
became important once again.
Both He and I were alone 
and thought that all love had gone.
but God smiled on us and allowed us to reach that everlasting love that we'd dreamed about.
just in time..

The right time contest

Most Devoted Love

Where did thoust get such beauty for thine head,
Without you I would have no other in your stead.
A ringlet of roses shall be thine crown,
And you shall be the fairest queen around.
You have far more patience than any monk,
At the first sight of you my heart fell to the earth with a thunk.
You are by far the most beautiful lass I have ever laid eyes upon,
With a smile that could shame the dawn.
However there is another ring I wish to give to thee,
If you accept you I will not have blessed you, you will have saved me.
You have saved me with thy beauty and thy heart,
I pray we shall never again part.
Tis a ring...
Of emerald green...
To match the most gentle and beautiful eyes I ever seen.
So fare the well , my angel from above,
As always Your Most Devoted Love.

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

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

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

Lol, my friend I can't say it enough and I absolutely love it.
Love you.

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

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

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

The Two States of Love

The Two States of Love.
 
Yes, hidden is the partial tale,
from a heart that awakens not,
may love enthrall uprooted plants,
but, not a man that love forgot.
As we all are born -a yesterday,
again will be, when today shall tread,
and so carry on with this delay,
until a lover's sweet words be said.
 
And morbid if my heart does turn,
a place with spiral toxic cold,
where tears do crowed the rivulets,
would the wet air my sighing hold;
So if sorrow such on my behalf,
does tear apart, a haunted chest,
Still, her name would be my epitaph,
And her love the ever staying guest.

Finding You

I look for you in the jostling crowd
Being pushed about in the angry human waves
I find you finding me
We move towards each other

I rejoice in your warm embrace
My tears fall freely
Relief washes over me
You are my beacon of hope

But then we separate
My hand lingering in yours
Our fingers slip through
I scream your name, though in vain

Then we reunite
Though covered in soot, I feel beautiful
Although our homestead can no longer hold us
Our lives shall be intertwined forever

Love Is

Love is the greatest feeling to know.
Love is learning as we go.
Love is blind when others see.
Love is you and love is me.
Love is your hug when I'm feeling down.
Love is showing me off around town.
Love is missing me when I can't stay.
Love is kissing me though I'm miles away.
Love is your soft caress on my skin.
Love is my heart letting you in.
Love is your smile inside and out.
Love is knowing without a doubt.
Love is standing in the rain.
Love is my happiness and my pain.
Love is waiting in the cold.
Love is together growing old.
Love is truth and respect.
Love is to forgive and to forget.
Love is the soft look in your eye.
Love is your shoulder when I cry.
Love is whispering your name to the wind.
Love is understanding again and again.
Love is wanting to hold you soon.
Love is wishing on the same bright moon.

Guilty As Charged Try Jesus

Guilty As Charged? There was a woman caught in an adulterous act. Her accusers came after her with all of the “facts…” She came to Jesus. .. With a heart-felt plea. “Master….” “Have mercy on someone like me!” Jesus looked at her as she wept and cried. So many other things she had already tried. Coming to Jesus… She felt scared and alone… Jesus told her accusers; “You without sin.” “Throw the first stone.” One by one… They dropped the stones and fled. Rather than face the truth… They ran away instead… Jesus told the woman; “Your forgiven.” “Go and sin no more…” She was the meaning of what God’s grace was meant for. If you’re caught in a situation, with “no way out…” This is what the meaning of salvation is all about! Any “accusers” you may have, will quickly run and hide. When to Jesus you come… And have him “on your side…” Allow the master to cleanse your life this very hour… And experience the love of his life-changing power! He’ll take you in with his arms wide open. “You’re forgiven!” Will be the lovely words spoken! Be “caught up” in the savior’s redeeming grace… He’ll give you hope and put a smile on your face!

This Past Year


I think about this past year... It “came and went…” I wonder that kind of life have I really spent? It almost seems like yesterday that I was a young man… “I had the world in the palm of my hand.” I had many goals, ambitions and dreams. I wanted to enjoy life and do so many things. Looking back on time and how quickly it’s gone by. I gaze up into the beauty of the stars in the sky. As I get older and think about another “resolution.” I find myself with another problem with no “solution.” I think about a God... Who made all of this a possibility! He’s offered to me love, hope and tranquility! I’m going to make a new commitment this January 1st. No matter if things get better… Or things get worse… I’m going to give my life and family to God above. And ask him to bless our home with his mercy and love. I’m going to try to live for him the best way I know. And seek his blessings wherever I may go! I’m going to give to God a love and strong commitment. It’s only in him where I’ll find true fulfillment! There’s an important fact, I shall always remember… God is with me from January thru December! He will be there to guide each step that is taken! With him in my life… I’m never alone or forsaken! By Jim Pemberton

Dance

We lay together in this moment 
Time stands still around us and only we move 
I hear you breathing in my ear as your hands slide down my chest 
We make God weep at the dance we perform 
And you cry his name in the bliss you desire 
Am I doing this right for you?
Do you like the way I make you move in my arms?
We are hardly half done as we make our own music play the tone I know you love
 Now you lead and I follow in this love dance
Breathing heavy we work in love make you moan 
Am I doing this right for you my love?
I know I am from the weeping of joy from all the desire you have 
We spin round so you can dance above me 
This dance has barley begun 
The dance was slow 
Our hands roaming looking for the right place to hold 
I sigh in relief as we hold each just right 
Let  us speed it up 
The climax is come in this dance 
The final part is close can you feel it approaching?
Heavy breathing stop momentarily just as the world starts around us again
Looking into the your eyes I know this was right
The dance we have started 
Has come to an end for know.

I Love You

I love you, I love you.
What do these three words mean?
 
Do they mean, “I want your money,”
Or, “I want to be, though poor, with you”?
 
Maybe they mean, “I am the boss”,
Or, maybe, “What would you like to do?”
 
Another still, “You must love me”
Or, “No matter what, I still love you.”
 
No, love is not I, and love is not me,
For love is simply, you.

Can God Find You Faithful

Can God Find You Faithful?

I once knew a man had made
up his mind.
He left his wife and children behind!

He met someone who “captured his heart.”
This was a deception 
from the very start!

His wife gave God and their kids
her love and attention...
But her husband went
Into another direction!

  They went to church...
 And did their "Sunday best."
How could this 
 turn into such a mess?

Temptation can happen to anyone!. 
Whether rich or poor.
Be careful what you allow to
 enter your heart's door.

Regardless of whether you've been
 married for a lot of years..."
One shameful act can bring
 heartache and tears!

The love that’s been given...
  Let no one take away!
No matter what others think...
 Or what they might say.

Stay true to God!  You'll be 
glad you did!
His love and joy will bless you
 each day you live!

Jesus will never forsake you!
Or leave you alone!
Allow HIM to bring peace and
 restore your home!

The New Me

When your eyes I see
I catch a reflection of the new me
when I see your expression
it's as if God has taught me a life-long lesson.

what is this lesson?
You wanna know?
It's that I remain
beside the brightest glow

the light that you are
has left me scarred
with happiness and protection
as you have taught me this lesson

In the mirror
I take another look
you have opened my life's book
because for the first time
I can call you mine

The look on your face
shows there isn't a race
I've found where I belong
so I'll be with you life-long.

A Walk To Remember

I met you on that hot summer day,
We were walking by the bay.
You had a gleam in your eye,
I knew then, you were thee guy.
I called you first,
I was so nervous, I almost burst.
We would make small talk,
And hold hands as we went on walks.
I could hear the beating of my heart,
Hoping that we would never part.
My hands would start to sweat,
In my heart, is where you crept.
I was so in love with you,
I could feel it, I just knew.
You loved me back,
Our lives joined together was no act.
We had so much fun,
Everything together we've done.
We would stare into eachother's eyes,
Promising to never say Good-bye.
A couple years went past,
I knew our love would last.
We would always smile,
Our love was no denile.
Then that day came,
The gleam in your eyes was still the same.
You took me to the beach,
Asked me to have a seat.
In your pocket, your hand went,
Then you told the story how we met.
You bent down on one knee,
"Will you be my wife?" You asked me.
I started to cry and answered "YES!"
You held me in your gentle caress.
Six months later, we were married,
In our new home, I was carried.
You laid me on the bed,
"I love you forever." You had said.
We made love that night,
Everything was so perfectly right.
I cuddled close to you,
I then told you, "I love you too."
Days went by, and I was with child,
Your cell phone I then dialed.
I told you that you're gonna be a Daddy.
You jumped for joy, you were so happy.
Then, the day came about,
We had a couple names picked out.
I started to feel real improper,
So you took me to the Doctor.
I was in labor,
Every moment you savored.
I gave birth to our healthy, handsome son.
With him, we were joined as one.
We have a loving family,
Living together happily.
We will always be together,
We promised eachother FOREVER.

Be My Valentine

I still get butterflies when you come near
And
Still i cherish when you call me honey or dear.

After all, its about you just being near because
when you are it seems i have nothing to fear.

See, When i say i love you,i mean it with all my heart
For if you weren't a piece of me 
So would, my world be torn apart

I don't need a Valentines Day to say what i feel. 
For each day i say it makes it more real

You've never tried to change me
Even Listened to me Banter
Always trying to calm my fears
And
Always i have felt better
knowing you are near

I am an independent person with a courage & strength to get me through
For i know with you in my life there's nothing i cant do.

Your eyes are a shining ocean making love so crystal clear
For every time i look into them i cherish what i have so dear

If you asked me to describe my love to you all i could tell you is this,
Only the beauty of the sky can show you what words could never say
All my love forever my angel, NOT, just today

Speaking That Which Is Wholesome And Good

Speaking That Which Is Wholesome and Good… You must be careful to speak that which is good and wholesome. Speaking like this will minister to others.. In a way that will "bless them!" May the words that are chosen, be used for edification… May they be said in a manner of a Godly dedication! As you speak… May you minister grace to the listener. Brining healing in the words spoken to your brother and sister! The words of kindness and love… May we all freely give it. And not quench the work of the Holy Spirit! As we are sealed by God on the day of redemption. We’re called to be HIS example. There’s no exemption! May all bitterness, wrath and anger immediately diminish. So our spiritual lives can be daily replenished! Be kind toward one another, gracious and tenderhearted… So the goodness of God… Through you… Can be started! As you forgive other… As Christ has forgiven you… May we not forget HIS words: “I LOVE YOU!” The power and grace of God is what he’s anxiously revealing. As you apply HIS words with a purpose and meaning! By Jim Pemberton Read Ephesians 4:29-32

Proposal

Oh how the King has loved you
your beauty is rare
                and your fealty unsurpassed
let us traverse the garden meadows
in the mountains along the foraged trails
alongside the thickets into the redwood groves

I will call you to my side
there always to be present with me
the bride price was costly , a kings ransom
but I have redeemed you for myself
no others shall have you , I have made you mine
I have loved you with an everlasting love
with the promise I have given you
that your confidence may rest in my word
none in a thousand , one in tens of thousands
but you are beyond price, inestimable your value
have been foreordained to be for me
hand chosen by my own father

Where justice has met compassion
power has betrothed meekness
wisdom has married foresight
and love gives birth to truth
will that these qualities multiply
for these are the virtues
that will be the healing of the nations

All that is mine , my gifts for you
born of a love incomparable
even as my father has given me
I will make your joy full
and grant the desires of your heart
though you have been terrified
you shall rest in my security forever
remain on the watch
for I will show you
the things that yet must come to pass
for I watch over you 
will shield you and guide
you into all the truth

amen , come Lord Jesus

I Believe

I believe that you are the love of my life.
I believe that in the near future I will call,
You my husband and you will call me your wife.
I believe that we will be together we just might.
I believe that we will have a good time when,
Our loving hearts intertwine.
I believe that we will share our favorite wine when,
We will together graciously dine.
I believe that we will be fine in loving delight,
Without a doubt.

We will leave out.

A Gentle Touch

A gentle brush of his fingers,
sending shiver down my spine.
In the love that equal mine.

He greets me with a smile,
and leaves me with a kiss.
If he were to ever leave me,
i couldn't imagine what i'd miss.

Or maybe it's his touch,
or the way he makes me feel.
But whatever it is,

I Can't Do This Anymore It's Dragging Me Down

I just can’t keep “doing this” any longer! What am I doing? I began to wonder… This “sin” just keeps dragging me further down… What do I do? There’s no one around??? This “thing” has got a hold on me… I cry every night… I want to be FREE! I’ve tried and tried… But to no avail… Just when I think I have victory… I fail! I’ve read in scripture of a power that I haven’t seen. I read of a savior who can do ANYTHING! Why don’t I give him a try? I’ve nothing to lose! I’ve been so hurt, worn out and abused..… To you, dear Jesus… I confess my every sin. And can feel your love from deep within! Thank you Jesus! For giving me a joy I never knew… I don’t know where I’d be if not for YOU! You’ve brought to my life a peace I never had. For all you’ve done for me. I am so glad! Won’t YOU give your burdens to this one… I call friend? And experience the joy of being born again? Please come to him now. Why not this hour? And experience his life-changing power!

Definately (Love)

He gave me a kiss with his eyes.
He, using his smile, held me wrapped so tight.
He brought me joy beyond words because he used none,
Made me sing to music without a song.
"But how?" You might ask me.
"Was it magic?" Maybe.
"Love?" Definately.
"Or could it all be a dream?"
Um...possibly?
But, no! It couldn't have been!
You weren't me when I was with him,
When he kissed me with his eyes,
When my knees went weak and I felt I could fly,
When I,
With all of my inhibitions gone,
Sang to music without a song.
So, was it a dream?
No, but love? Definately.

Sowing The Seed Of Love

The first time we talked
My heart took flight
I wanted you always
I knew that night

The first time I saw you
My emotions confirmed
That I had to have you
Under no certain terms

The first time we met
I couldn't believe
All my dreams were before me
It was hard to conceive

The first time we touched
I melted inside
I knew from that moment
Our hearts would collide

The first time we kissed
Heaven moved earth
I never imagined
The greatness of your worth

The first time we embraced
Created passion aflame
Making love to you honey
Created the same

Always together
Never apart
I love you darlin'
With all of my heart

Love celebration

Our love is forever as we cherish eachother
I made you my husband and you made me your wife
Through our divine connection, we're together for life
As we celebrate our love on this special day
We search and ponder for a special way
to say I love you more than you know
to say I love you more than I can show

Those Close to Us Can Cause So Much Hurt


Those Close To Us Can Cause So Much Pain Isn’t it amazing, the hurt and damage someone can do? Especially by the one who said; “I Love You!” Isn’t it amazing, how someone, which we’ve given our heart. Can betray our love, and “tear it all apart?” On that special day, when your vows were exchanged… It’s almost like “overnight,” some people change! Throughout this country, this seems too commonplace. As people seek their own desires… Instead of God’ grace. Isn’t it amazing, how anger, jealousy and bitterness begins? Even amongst our loved ones, that we have called “friends?” What’s more amazing… Is how God, in his mercy and care.. Still loves us. And he is always there! No matter what you’ve said, or what you do. God remains the same. And is always there for YOU! He is faithful! His commitment to you is strong and secure! His love is everlasting! And is 100% PURE! I stand amazed, as to how God still loves us. He asks for our heart. He wants to trust us! Won’t you come and experience his love today? He loves you much more than words can say! By Jim Pemberton

Getting By With The Simple Things In LIfe

The Simple Things In Life…

I met this person…  And could hardly
 believe my ears…
He hasn’t watched public
 television in over 40 years!

How could someone not 
watch this for so long?
Is everything o.k with him?  Is anything “wrong?”

Allow me to put any uncertainties 
or questions to rest.
He is doing quite well…, 
And feels rather blessed!

He  hasn’t looked to television to entertain.
But is very happy..  
No reason to complain…

I know that he loves Jesus 
with a passion and zeal…
God is in his heart.  He knows his God is REAL!

He has a dedication for Christ
and the Holy Ghost.
He seeks in life what really matters the most…

He has a wife and several children as well…
They’re seeking God’s love.  You can TELL!

It’s the “simple things in life”
 they’ve learned to enjoy…
A contentment in life is what 
they wish to employ…

What takes our time from Jesus
 we may one day regret.
That which Christ has done for us… 
 May we not forget!

May we all be encouraged to live for God.  
Whatever the cost…
And perhaps get our focus back
 on the “old rugged cross…”

Another Perfect Day

A pillow rests beneath wavy locks of sunburst hair,
eyelids shallow, folding closed over ocean deep eyes,
porcelin arms, as ivory as the snow cross over a warm white bear,
little pouting lips purse and twitch with a hidden smile as dreams take over,
simple words, sweet and true slip from them with a breath,

                                   "Tomorrow will be the best day of my life, 
                                     because it will mean that I get to spend 
                                     another perfect day, with you by my side."

                                     a gentle sigh escapes "Goodnight my love."

Cowboy

So strong and self assured
He rides alone always wanting more
Never satisfied with what's between those fences
His spirit will wake up your wildest senses

By the cross and thorns that is emblazoned on his arm
His substance runs deeper than his cowboy charm
A tame Christian man with a spirit wild
A man of God, he is your child

His reckless nature will never subside
Yet humble he still has his foolish pride
His heart is bigger than the tallest mountain high
And you feel weak when you look into his eyes

His hands so rough yet so soft to touch
For him no ride is ever too much
He welcomes the mystery that comes in the night
A lover at heart born ready to fight

The complexity of this cowboy man
Every woman dreams with him she would stand
Alone, looking at the midnight moon
In her dreams, she whispers...sometime soon

Mom I'm Pregnant

“Mom….   I’m Pregnant!”


From the time I held my baby 
in my arms…
I made a vow to “protect her from all harm.”

She was indeed a wonderful bundle of joy…
And during her life, has been a gift for us to enjoy.

She's been  the focus of much of our attention,
Trying to provide for her 
“timely” correction.

As a father, many thoughts entered my mind…
I wanted to be attentive to her, 
patient and kind.

As she's gone through 
her teenage years…
I thought of what perhaps is a parent’s #1 “fear.”

Then one day... “Mom I’m pregnant” were spoken...
At first, my heart was sad and “broken.”

“I didn’t raise her to be “crazy and wild…”
“How could this happen to a wonderful child?”

I realized that in spite of everything
 parent’s will do.
There’s no telling what their 
children will put them through.

I gave her a hug and all of the
 support  I could give…
Everything she’s been through…
 God will forgive!

With all that has happened in her life…
One day she’ll make someone a wonderful wife!

Dear Lord, please help my daugher to see...
How precious she is to her mother and me!

Still In Love

Still In Love... My son came to me with a question on his mind. I said; “Not now son— I just don't have the time.” He said, “Daddy—are you still in love with Mommy?” “Do you love her like you did when I was in her tummy?” My eyes choked with tears; “Yes son I really do!” “I'm in love with her... and I appreciate you.” “Daddy—will you always love me like you do mom?” “Yes my son—my love for you will always belong.” I looked down and much to my surprise. There were tears running down my sons's eyes. He came running to me with his arms wide open. “Thank you daddy” were his words spoken. I picked him up and gave him a great big hug. As I let him down, on my shirt I felt a tug. His little arm reached up to grab my hand. I knew that what I said, he began to understand. I love his mom so much—my wonderful wife. She's been such a blessing- a great part of my life! By Jim Pemberton

It's You

It’s You

A simple smile
A kind gesture
Saying you love me
Just being there
Even on my worst days 
There is the joy of one person
Who can make me smile

It’s You

The gentleness of your touch
The kindness in your eyes
That special look
Means all the world to me
As it reminds me that

It’s You

Someone I can lean on
A confident 
A best friend
The one I want to spend
The rest of my life with
Someone I cannot imagine my life without
Someone who makes me smile 
Even when I want to cry
I am so happy I found that special person
That special bond
That once in a lifetime kind of love
I found it all 

It’s You 

The man of my life 
My husband, my best friend
I love you!

A marriage

All day and night, till where my eyes could take me, 
Nothing but excitement, is what I could see,
Nervousness (of course!) from my aunt’s side,
And other expressions, that she, from her face, can’t hide!

It’s her marriage, a lucky day for her,
And both aunt and my to- be- uncle are really eager,
This is a day most awaited by them both,
A day they were waiting for since their earlier years of growth!

Everyone would be so much filled with delight,
This would surely be a memorable night,
Vows would be exchanged; the ceremony will be grand,
Embellished by floral bouquets and a band!

Oh! How filmy it would be when they would exchange smiles,
That can stretch on for many miles,
When laud applause will echo in the hall,
And aunt will look like a doll!

To- be- uncle would be like a Bollywood male lead, 
And to every blessing, they both will heed,
It would be perfect, a dream come true,
It would be of a bright and colourful hue!

I would just want that this couple stays longer than eternity,
And long will be remembered their affinity,
They would be together, tells their empathy,
Wishes are high, and that’s the reality!

WHO Built YOUR House


This house of ours is “plain.” 
But is still standing.
We’re “simple folks...”
 By many people’s  understanding…

We may not have much of what is 
“socially appealing”…
But we have love in our hearts.  
And this is a good feeling!

We may not be “wrapped up” in much
 of this world’s entertainment.
But we seek God’s peace 
and a desire for contentment.

We, as a family, have one purpose
 and “calling” in mind.
To seek God’s ways of being
 merciful and kind…

Each day we pray with much
 thankfulness in our hearts…
For this is where happiness
 and gratitude starts!

We’re thankful to the Lord for
 his unfailing grace…
And for keeping us together
 in this special place…

We’re blessed to have a God who
 is truly worth finding.
His word in our lives is precious
  and worth memorizing!

“Unless the Lord builds the house,
 they labor in vain that build it!”
God must rule and reign…  
 So his love can completely fill it!

Wedding Blessing

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

cjh

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

Destiny of Love So Divine

Drive me to the brink of madness, with kisses so fine.
Ecstasy is not a drug for us, but life’s superior line.
Sensuality, takes us on the road of temptations desire.
Treasures of the heart bless us and start the fire.
I am blind by the affection; you give so willingly.
Now and forever, our lives bonded, delicately.
Yes, it seems to true and so unreal, we have this thing.

Our lives as well bound by the blessing of this ring.
Favored by the heavens, I know, we are until the end.

Listen to the pledge; I give to thee this day, I send.
Only you my love can sweep my desire to pleasure.
Visions of you came to me, dreams of measure.
Every look, which you give to me, shows love divine.

Sincere words that you say each day, makes me pine.
Our passion is roaring with such answers, that quake.

Driving us to the brink of madness, which we make,
I await your presence, each night, as we prepare to sleep.
Violent fevers of ardor set my body to quiver and weep.
Individuality of ours does not exist, while together.
Nature has flooded our souls, with both lace and leather.
Excitedly, we both win, with destiny of love so divine.

Ripped Soul, Sutured Soul

When you were born did your soul burst,
Sending a part of it spiraling through the universe?
Did you continually walk around feeling lost,
At night did you turn and toss?
When the paths you did wander,
Did you begin to ponder?
Where is she,
The one that I seek?
Where is she,
The other part of me?
Did every path you followed lead to dead end,
Into fits of depression did you descend?
Did your feet follow their own road,
Always looking for the the other part of your soul?
And when your feet lead you to me,
Did you comprehend it was a little easier to breathe?
Did you automatically realize I was the one you had searched for for so long,
Did the vision of me make you strong?
Did you realize I have always been the one,
The moment you saw me did the cage holding your soul come undone?
Did you just know,
That I was the one with the other part of your soul?
Did what was once broken automatically suture,
Did my presence unlock visions of our future?
For me the second I saw you I knew my soul would never again roam,
Because in you my soul has found its permanent home!

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!

End of the line
For it is directly time
That we will be
Just you and me
The way God has sent
You know we were meant
That we should always live
And always give
The way we see
And it will be
Together forever
Through all we will endeavor
Our hearts are one
And will not be undone
Will not separate
In this time not ever irate
But hand In hand
Listen to the band
I always long 
That they play our song
Across the threshold I will carry
Directly after I marry
And make you my wife
For the rest of my life
The beginning of the line
Forever through all of time

Poetic Nuptials

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

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

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

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

Forever-Part 1

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

 

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

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

Love To My Husband

I am drawn to you like
The stars to the midnight skies,
The earth to th burning sun..
Water to thirsting flowers.

I am comfortable with you like
An old pair of boots,
A faded pair of jeans,
My favorite sweater and scarf.

I am at peace with you like
Sitting in a boat in the middle of a lake,
Taking a walk in the wide open spaces in the country,
Listening to rain drops fall in the dark of night.


I am alive with you like,
The laughter that is uncontrollable..
The heart that gose "thump"  "thump" "thump"
Running throught wildflowers in the wilderness.

Every ounce of my being..
Mind, body and soul are riveted by you,
I am alive with you, free with you,
Comfortabel with you.
I Love You..

Where angels go

Two doves perchèd upon the throne of God
Fore'er indebted in wedlock'd bond.
True love cannot be measured with a rod.
Like ripples on the Lord's celestial pond.
Bouquet of wild aster both shall pick
In gardens, both share harvest of their love
with children who will compliment them quick
We bless them both with light from Heav'n above
As love has taken hold of man and wife
And may that bond be blessèd with glad cheer
Together they will start their Christian life
And let us not shed ev'n single tear
Love's purity is like the fallen snow 
Part not until they tread where angels go.

One Did Fall

Can a heart become what a story tells?
Where happiness thrives and a daydream dwells
Of course the passion grows on sight
Excitement by day, warmth by night

Filling the hole of empty bliss
Can be made by a simple ‘time-for-work’ kiss
Arching smiles can be noticed by all
Right into Cupid’s love, one did fall

By God, the thought runs through one’s head
Never wanting this love to be found dead
Glorious times one can hardly endure
The disbelief, but alas, compassion ensured

The Great Depression of solitariness now done
That grey time of guilt and remorse, overrun
No words to explain it, what more is there to say?
Do not ever ask for this to all go away!

Floating just like a bird, singing by a calm river
This heart has never been cherished, but is always a giver
Rest well tonight, for another day is pending
And that smile, that feeling, will be never-ending

Your Love

Every day I walk you to the door
As you stand there reaching for my hand
I know you are going to lean in a little closer
And kiss me

As you hug me before you head to work
I can feel that spark just lighting up my heart,
and just to make sure I know and understand 
How much you love me,
A thousand times a day you tell me,

I hope you know that you always leave me
with a feeling of pure happiness
And sometimes I replay all our memories within my mind
Because when I am missing you 
I find that your love helps get me threw the day
Yes your love helps get me threw the day

And every night I wait for the moment 
when you will walk threw the door
So I can show you how I love you so much more
Oh and each and everyday I walk you to the door
And each and every night I wait for you cause 
Your love helps me get threw the day
Yes your love is what gets me threw each day.

The feel of someone other

No one person can resist the feel of someone other
The warm embrace of someone who heart beats to yours
Blended finger tips
Mixed skin tones from

no one individual wants to be lost on a shelf

after they pass to the after life
let's you know

What Has Happened To The Family

I remember growing up in a Christian family.
We were content, joyful and quite happy.

Things were "going along rather well."
We loved each other... more than words could tell.

I think of the special love 
between mom and dad.
As my parents... I was proud and glad!

Over the years that rolled  on by.
Something happened.  I don't know why. 

Our deep love became 
replaced with "excuses."
Our relationshps filed with
 "barsh words and bruises."

This family... I once held so close to my heart.
Began to "unravel and fall apart."

Our love for another became bitter and cold.
Even to the day we're "growing old."

Everywhere... it is evident and appearing.
The family as a unit is quickly disappearing.

We must come together and 
remove all bitterness.
And walk in God's love and his forgiveness!

We must appreciate one another--
in spite of our faults!
Standing together on Godly principles 
brings good results!

It we insist on "going our separate ways."
We'll be sorry "one of these days!"

The family is what God has put together.
It needs to be rooted in love--
both now and forever!

HIS love needs to be the glue 
that binds us as one.
Blessing every mom and dad... 
daughter and son!

Make Your Family FIRST


Make Your Family First! I know a person who had “a change of heart.” And very shortly his family “fell apart.” He was involved in doing “so many things.” He neglected the duty of what family brings! He became so involved in helping others… He neglected his wife and his kids’ mother! At first, he had the best of intentions… But failed to give his family any kind of attention! He was so busy, and away from home so much. It didn’t take long for him to be “out of touch.” Very soon he found his life “way off course…” And heading down the path of a divorce! He began to ask himself the question; “why?” As he began to hear all of his kids cry! Beyond all of the chaos and “chatter.” He decided that his family DOES matter! He quit doing many of the things he once did. And asked all of his family to please forgive! He’s now the kind of dad that he needs to be! And is with his family so faithfully! May this be a lesson and reminder to us all! How quickly we can get up. How quickly we can fall! May we put an effort into our family as number one! Every mom and dad! Daughter and son!

OMUBBI -"Thief"

Like a thief at midnight
He came along
Sending whispers down my heart
And shivers down my spine
Entrapped in his line,I was
	
They say he is a master of all trades
But he passed my way today
And even I was caught unaware

But then he opened his eyes
And lit up my life
And everyday I hope
He never blinks 
That this light never dies out
The one that makes me smile.

Pride and prejudice

Huddled inside his feathery frame, basking in his mellowing warmth, behind the horizon the sun rose and dawn came, and the dove awoke with fright and alarm. She had to fly for none must know, that her heart's with the raven. And she flew leaving her heart behind, only to wear a mask among her own kind. She played along as they tweeted with voices loud, their diction coated with malice and disdain.. She could do nothing but to their every word bow, while her tender heart bled and pained. Tangled in their rusted chain, she waited till the first star spawned. Bidding goodbye with a smile that she feigned, she wound the clock to the time before morn. As the sun crept to the other side, the dove lost herself in his love so wide. With their body and soul now entwined, they made love, when everything was so beautiful and fine.

So Strange

This is strange as strange as strange could be
I feel like there is some type of psychic bond between you and me
I know it is hard trusting in someone you have never met
But the heart will lead you down the right path without any regrets
Craving and yearning for the attention that only a strong mancan provide
Being a friend first of all second, right by your side
The carma that flows about you exudes elegance,style and grace
Is what i am reading essentials things in life like  love, happiness
Are questions of what we all are needing

My Son


When you look at me, 
I see me
I see your father,
your grandparents,
looking back at me.
I see such wisdom, 
for one so young in age.
I see a baby in need of care and protection,
My baby.
Yet I also can see the seeds of a great man,
who someday I hope to live to see.
Independent, 
bold, 
but still a tad unsteady
You strike out on your own.
Still you turn to me for assurance, 
And in that I see a child still,
But not for long.
When you look at me,
I see you.

I Will Love You For Eternity

~I Will Love You for Eternity~

We started out as friends
Slowly our feelings grew
Although I knew, how I felt
A year ago
I waited for you to make the first move
I was so unsure of myself
I did not know how you really felt
I just knew that I could always
Count on you
To be there for me
As we are 
Best friends
While it is not often, a girl can say
She is in love with 
Her best friend
I am one of the lucky ones
For in you I have found
My heart, soul, love, and my future husband
Not to mention 
My best friend
I could not ask for more
In you I have found 
The right man for me
I cannot imagine my life without you
For you are my rock
I cherish only you
And it will always be to you that I say
I do,
Not just in our wedding vows
But for Eternity
For I have found
The one and only person
I ever want to give myself to completely
Heart, mind, body and soul

~I Will Love You for Eternity~

	For My Future	
For My One True Love Jeffery Shular
Love, 
Jean

My Real Life Fantasy

Months ago and time after time
You were just a fantasy
That at night played in my sleep
And in the day, occupied my mind

Now you're here with me
But it doesn't seem real
I'm in love with the way I feel
But mostly with who's standing in front of me

When you leave, my body is left with a wonderful feeling
It's the things you say
It's the motion of your hands and the way they sway
That leaves me with a fulfillling tingling

The way you look at me
The quality time we share with one another
Your desire of wanting to go further
Let's me know that I'm not just any lady

You make me feel good inside and out
I thank God for bringing you to me
I thank you for loving me
And for showing me what real love is about

passion

dark room,no light
not day,at night
soft kisses on my neck
gentle leg caress
quiet whispers in the dark
melting my heart
skin on skin
chest to chest
making love to you
is the best
i've never felt so beautiful
ive never felt so alive
everything feels so good
i think i might die
a noise squeeks out of my mouth
a noise ive never heard
any other time im silent
not a whisper,a whimper,a word
but you,you set me free
you let me be me
chest to chest
cheek to cheek
all the passion is starting to leak
i hold you tight,there's no-one above you
whispers both ways softly
"i love you"
creating a life
half of you half of me
how in the world can this be?
so amazing,so truthful
so wonderful and bright
i close my eyes
remember this night
lock it away in my head
save it for myself
ive never loved so much
never ever felt
so perfect,so alive
so beautiful,i cry
and you,just you
are all i need
all i need is you,just you
my chest to your back
a kiss on the cheek
close my eyes and remember all the things around me
how you smell,how you taste
wonderful,great
how do people cheapen such a beautiful thing?
to have something feel this good,this right
creating our child,you turn on the light
and the last thing you say when i ask you not to
is im leaving it on..i need to see you

Mate

Mate




Vir and famina partners in time,
Evolving together as surf and sand.
Distinctive styles, views, merits,
They compliment each other.

Lifetime collaborators bound as one,
Enduring life's struggles and accomplishments.
Withstanding the face of difficulties and difference,
Learning, loving, together.

Recognizably exceptional as snowflakes,
Mars and Venus embrace their universe as partners.
They may not see eye to eye,
Yet walk strongly and united hand in hand.

Necessity is

Necessity is...

Archimedes sat at the table with his wife
a contemplative look in his eye
slowly eating Psomi and grapes
until finally he said:

"What would you like to do today dearest?"
"Would you like to go to the sea and bathe?"

"Perhaps", she said, ... "later".

"Would you care to walk to the peaks,
to see the arc of the Earth?" said he.

"No, I think not." she replied.

"Then the Amphitheatre, for a two-act play?"

"No," she said "...but we could play."

A bit bewildered he finally said,
"Well, what on Earth would you like to do?"

She smiled and quietly replied,
"We need to oil the Archimedean screw."

You Take God I'll Take Booze, Drugs And Women

You Take Your God…
I’ll Take My Booze, Drugs And Women!


Someone recently asked me: “Are you listenin’?”
“You take your God!”  “I’ll take my booze, drugs and women!

I’ve been there! When I lived for “the pleasure of the day.”
I didn’t want to listen to what God had to say!

Whatever felt “good.”  I wanted to “live it up!”
There were many things I tried, that I let “fill me up.”

But whatever I tried…  No matter how 
happy I wanted to be.
There was still something empty deep inside of me!

I’ve seen families break apart, over a bottle of booze.
In the end, it seemed like everyone was going to lose!

I’ve seen drugs lead people into heavy addictions.
And have seen them die from various afflictions!

I’ve seen grown man having “affairs” of various kinds.
Only to burn in lust with very “sex craved” minds!

Is this the real fun that people seem to crave?
But too often, end up in an early grave?

Will someone please tell me what going on?
Or, have many people just “have it all wrong?”

There’s a God!  And he wants to make this very clear!
Today may be your party!  But his judgment is near!

Everything that you try will one day fail you!
The life God offers, will never disappoint you!

He is the answer for the satisfaction you seek!
You need him in your life!  Each day of the week!

Won’t you allow his love and peace into your life today!
He’ll show you how to really live
 in a brand new way!

When Life Get's TOUGH

I’m here to tell you that when “the going get’s rough…” A simple, “God bless you!” May not be enough! Just when you think things in life are getting you down… And perhaps there’s “not a friend anywhere to be found…” Perhaps… Right now… You find yourself right there! Let me encourage you to try some prayer! Jesus is as close as the mention of his name! With him in control… Things will never be the same! He’ll speak peace to the raging waters of life’s ocean… And will give to you… His 100% “love potion!” He’ll bring peace and healing to your heart and home. He’s always there with you. You’re NEVER alone! The chains of discouragement will simply disappear… His perfect love will cast out all fear! He’ll pick up the pieces of life that are broken... As you allow his words of love and hope to be spoken. He’ll do for you what no power or god can do… He’s here right now He’s waiting for YOU! By Jim Pemberton 04/26/11

Proclamation of Love

Never did I think the day would come when i wouldn't be by your side, when i 
wouldn't be holding your hand, gazing in your eyes. It never even crossed my 
mind that you were not that special guy, that we wouldn't get along with each 
other, that we wouldn't last past our first time. We clicked instantly, you literally 
swept me off my feet with just one kiss. I stood there motionless as if, there was 
a lifetime I had missed. Instantly my whole outlook had changed, I began to 
understand how friendship can lead to love, how independence can be 
interpreted as two becoming joined as one. I no longer have to be alone, no 
longer have to state my claim that i'm perfectly fine being on my own. I realized 
that was all a lie and a front as soon as i looked in your eyes. You showed me 
truth, you showed me trust, you showed me accomplishment more importantly, 
you opened your heart to me and showed me love.

Love

Our lips touch to the settle sound of moans in the night
Cold sweat drips from your brow
And our souls form into one complete being
One love to rule 
Bodies move together in a dance that make the gods close their eyes
And the sins we commit save a spot in hell for us
But as I hear the sweet sound of your love wrapped around mine
I would give my soul away to save yours
As we move from sitting to standing to laying 
We mark our place our home 
With the love that will never die
The love in the books that we only hear about but never find 
Until we met 
That love became real for me 
For us
Finally we grip each other in the climax of our uniting of our souls
We know that nothing will separate us 
In this life or the next
Love

THE SNOWY CLIFFS WITH BOUFFANT BOULDERS

Even before the arrival of the first snows, so brilliantly candid, 
we climbed mounts less dangerous than the Alps's;
and we proudly chalked it up to our experience.
Now the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders,
have lost their captious and so beatific image,
and quite too often we got pinched by burdock,
distracted by the robins chattering on a coarse descent;
I champed on crisp strawberries, while he challenged his strength.   



My buddy never castigated me for my bizarre behavior,
and I admired him for displaying  humor without repulsion, 
or retort, and with chisel and hammer we engraved faces of historic men
on the smoothest rocks which were replete with their handsomeness.
Those adventurous afternoons are repealed when we look up,
and recreate them through our Male Chauvinism, cheery not dumb;
we felt like cave men making rudimentary drawings of their hunted animals,
while their women picked wild chicory for an early dinner. 



Chums we were, resembling cowboys with wide hats in a chiaroscuro,
drinking in a bar filled with fashionable ladies frolicking and saying hello;
and chili con carne we ate, and plenty of beers to wash it down.
After our money was all squandered, our pockets were empty and we felt alone,
dazed...wobbling with fear, afraid to face our witless wives at home;
we were two idiots wooing empathy and some undeserving love.    
And didn't they seem two witches ready for vengeance in their frown,
trying to squeeze the truth out of our silent and pretentious mouths too fulsome?



Frost will bring winter soon, and the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders will be covered,
our hair have turned almost white to match the bright color of the deep snows,
as this river is freezing up, to become a sheet of ice, where no boats or barges pass;
and we play chess, the intramural game of a confined life, without those clandestine affairs.
Our darlings approve with sweet intonation, intensifying their affection so amorous;
and we embrace them with that tenderness that they have long desired...
staring at the snowy cliffs with bouffant boulders that these two climbers made their own,
remembering the cold and the shivering...coming down to a valley of comfort and domain.

Forever-Part 2

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

If the Table Were Turned

You ask of people small things to do
But it seems like it’s so hard for them to do.
You say to yourself, “If the table were turned,
I would not have done this thing to you.”
You find yourself in certain situations,
And you ask individuals for their help.
But you’re left high and dry and all alone,
And once again you are all by yourself.
You know the saying goes,
What goes around comes around the same.
But some of the things that has happened to me,
I would not want those things to happen to anyone else by name.
Sometimes, the way we react, 
Others do not understand,
But if the table were turned, 
I guarantee you;
You would not find another like me in the land.
We do things to other people,
And you wonder if the table was turned;
Would you get treated the way you should have been,
Or would you end up just getting burned.
I know that we are going to reap, that which we sow,
Our character has to get tested.
And that’s how people would really know;
That if the table were actually turned,
It would show the kind of reaction or blow.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO, OR HOW WOULD YOU REACT, IF THE TABLE WERE TURNED!!!

Forgotten Love Found

Forgotten Love Found

WLM
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

Antiquity Of Love

They sit together after supper, two forks, two plates -dishes cleared, put away. She, with her tiny spectacles perched a little crooked on her face -  he, with his favorite pipe. Her withered hands lay peacefully in her lap…he reaches out, gently touching them - not speaking any words. 

No words needed between the two of them-having been together for so many years. Memorable words, touching phrases spoken ore’ the years spent together as one. One heart - one mind. Not always a life of sunshine and roses, but devotions never ceased between these two old lovers, these two best friends. 

They held on to one another through each new day, each new tomorrow - catching one another’s loving gaze, uttering a graceful word now and then. Wrinkled faces beautifully bestow them now - yet to him…she’s just as lovely as the day they wed -his lovely bride - his cherished, sweet wife of many years. A smile creeps across his lips in remembering their cherished wedding vows. 

“Will you take this women to be your wife”? He did then, he still does now.

The words sweet and strong - like the fragrance of orchids… everlasting, forever long.

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.

Meaning of Your Love


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

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

I want to give you

because baby I can't deny  
I have fallen hard for you. 

I want to see you

I hope you know that 
I would never shut my door

I am true. 
Oh baby,

This is How My Life Feels at My Age

Just got back from the movies,
Date night it was my choosing,
I love these nights with my man,
He's the best friend I've ever had

Job hunting seems to be a joke,
Almost as if CEO's rob their companies to snort more coke,
Politics irritate me, they'll never make sense,
If they kept things simple, it'd be less tense

See my bestie twice a month, 
for an hour, sometimes four,
Always want it to keep going,
Reality doesn't allow time for more,

Come home to the house I bought two years ago,
Sense of pride we've survived everything,
Even when times are hard, it's love that gets you through,
It's what I do everyday that I love to do

I dream of a child, but time will work that out,
Got my doggies, they get what I'm all about
Much to look forward , Much I need to do

Important is exercise and eating the right food,
Fuel for your destination,
Sometimes it's hard to avoid temptation,
Eating well always keeps up the mood!

Music, writing, drawing, being creative,
Seems in our society to be kind of native,
You can go to school for this but what's the point,
Life experience is more vital and helpful tool is the joint,

This my life at my age,
Wont tell how old,
At this point interesting enough,
You didn't want to turn the page

You Have My Heart

You message everyday
You call everyday
You say all things
That girls want to hear
And it works
I know we will be together soon
Next year
But that is to long to wait
I want to see you now
And I know you want to see me
And for you to have me for the first time
Is what we both want
I will give it all to you
Everything I am
Every fiber of being
Even my heart
Belongs to you

Diamonds or Gold

When I first met you
all those years ago. 
I never would have guessed
honey,did you know?
 
We're still going strong 
there's no end in sight.
Your still the spoon 
I want late at night.

I want to scoop you up 
and put you in my bed. 
I know what you want.
No words need to be said.

I know my lady inside.
I know my girl out.
That's why you love me.
I know you inside and out.

When it's late at night
and your fast asleep.
When your nestled in my arms
I know I'm in to deep.

There's a fire in our hearts
that will never die.
No one could ever put it out 
and they better not try.

It gets better and better
as we grow old.
Your love is more precious
then diamonds or gold.

I want to keep you safe.
I call you my own. 
I want to return to you
all the love I'm shown.

Your the last thought I have
when I sleep at night
and the first thing I reach for
come the morning light.

It can't be any better
in any ones life.
To still love the same girl
that you call your wife.

Note: For my dear friends. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you and God bless.

That Certain Part of the Male Anatomy

Today's society says,
"You're not a man
If you can't turn flesh to stone."
So drug after drug is manufactured
To make men feel like teens again.
"Bigger, longer, faster, stronger"
Is the motto of  this money game
With a pill, a caplet or capsule.
From porno stars to "Smiling Bob",
They convince man that drugs are the answer
To natural male enhancement-
All the while influencing addicts "once a day"
To ensure such lasting effects.

In yester years' society,
Abraham was dead in his body
And became the Father of many nations.
Sarah called him "lord" and made him feel
Better than any drug, and the benefit was hers, too.
In her old age she was satisfied with a child
And was blessed with laughter unspeakable.
She was his aphrodisiac, not a mistress with mandrakes.
Her spirit touched his emotions and effected his nature.
Maybe man could learn something from these saints
Instead of just desiring to be stiff and rigid.
Become addicted to love and each other.
"There is nothing to lose but to gain."

Alike

The wind has yet to blow 
two feathers along the same path 
or tassel twin snowflakes to the ground 
Nor will the wind ever see 
similarity 
in all the clouds it pushes around 
The same applies to the twin-less waves 
it's carried 
and yet to carry 
who've crashed 
and yet to crash 
upon no two similar grains of sand 
Amidst all this failure 
to bring together 
no two objects alike 
It's a wonder that finally 
it's brought together you and me 
and managed to get it right

These Three Words I LOVE YOU

These Three Words…

I was thinking of something God 
spoke to me the other day.
It was powerful and almost “took my breath away…”

These three words; “I love YOU!”  Were clearly spoken…
I didn’t know what to do.  I felt worn out and broken…

I cried and waited for something
 to change from within.
This “voice” I heard…  Would I hear it again???

I looked for a bible.  Any one I could find …
I had to seek an answer to settle my mind.

I opened up to the book of John and began reading…
I realized it was Jesus… That my life was needing...

I read the first few chapters including John 3:16.
About God’s love, which can make my heart clean

I was so thankful and joy came deep inside.
Bowing my head… I wept and cried.

I was sorry for the many sins I had committed...
Jesus forgave me…  Now my sins are omitted!

I’m so thankful for the gift of life I’ve received.
When I came to Jesus and simply believed!!!

I am drinking of the living water
 that never shall run dry.
God has promised: “all of your needs.
 I shall supply!

Thanks be to God! Glory and praise
 I shall give him!
Won’t you give him a chance?  He’s here to listen!

He alone can do what no other power could ever do!
The words he speaks to everyone are; “I LOVE YOU!”

Listen to his words…  It’s a heart-felt invitation…
You too can receive his mercy and salvation!

Growing Old

I want to be the oneyou turn to
in your time of need,

I want to be the one you 
can't live without,

You are the one I want,
The one I turn to in my every
moment of life,

The one I could nenver be without,
The one I need more than anything,
The one that I love more than anyone,
The one who holds the key to my heart,
The one that owns my heart,
I can't wait to be beside you,
Being beside you for the rest of
my life,

I can't wait to spend the rest of
my life with you,
Growing old with you would be a 
dream come true.

Is Your Life Running On EMPTY

Is your life running 
on empty fumes?
Are the adversities and stress
 of life being consumed?

Any zeal and passion for God
 may be in the past…
You wonder; “How long is life
 going to last???”

Perhaps you feel like your
 anchor’s “been lost at sea…”
And ask; “Lord…  
Why is this happening to me?”

Things in life often
 catch us “unaware…”
You may ask; “does anyone
 out there really care?”

There is someone who
 can help you along!
In Jesus’ arms of mercy
 is where you belong!

He walked this earth and 
calmed the sea of Galilee…
He’ll calm the storms
 of life for you and me!

Won’t you give him a chance... 
 To calm your fears?
And allow his love to
 wipe away any tears?

He’ll bring peace to a
 hopeless situation…
All you need to do… 
 Is to give him an invitation…

The choice is yours…  
It’s your decision to make!
Won’t you do it now?  Before it’s too late???

I Pray For My Children

 

I Pray For My Children… As a parent, having raised my kids.. I wanted to be a good example in how I lived. Disappointments and failures… I’ve had my share! I still love them and will always care! I didn’t want to “run away,” like many do… I want to be there to tell them; “I love you!” I did my best to give them a God given dedication… And to help them in a Bible based education. Now the years have passed and my kids are grown… Very soon, they’ll all be out of the home. I pray for God’s blessing in their days ahead. May the Bible be their source of “daily bread.” I pray that the Lord will guide their every step… May a love for God in their hearts be kept! Lord, please keep them from evil and harm… And keep them safe and secure in your arms! I pray that one day in heaven, I will see.. All my kids with me... For eternity! By Jim Pemberton

Travelers Itch

A tall  man waited,
His woman was gone.
She had a travellers itch,
The need to move,
She never settled down.
Working hard, 
she was a true cowgirl
Worth the wait he always said.
She hit town after town, lived in her truck
He waited, kept the house at home.
One day she came,
She looked at him, 
and then she knew.

He said your traveling days are over, 
Your workin time is done. 
No matter how many hours you log, 
how far you go, 
the work is never done.
So come stay with me, 
Be my partner
My best freind.

She smiled and said ok.
Her workin days were over, 
she missed the time of 
Open feilds, and rangy cattle, 
The smell of a brandin fire.
But She'd not trade in a single day
With that man she'd loved. 

They had  a home, a baby,
A couple real good dogs. 
She loved him, and he loved her,
And a home they'd finally made.
And he said she was worth the wait, 
And she said she'd found what she'd been searching for.

Like The First Time

~Like the First Time~

A pat on the back
A shoulder rub
Working its way down the back
A simple hug
Making our hearts soar
Anticipation
Of what can come
When our bodies become one
Our hearts beat faster
Enjoying every minute

~Like the First Time~

A simple kiss leaves us wanting more
A look
A glance 
Laying in each others arms 
Our clothes do not stay on long
As the love 
The passion
The anticipation
The heat of our bodies so close together 
It gets us every time 

~Like the First Time~

Best friends and so much more
Our love for each other 
Seems to make it even better
As our love grows
Our passions do too
Making us want more
As a look
A smile 
The anticipation of it all

~Like the First Time~

For My Husband 
I Do Love You

Jesus The BEST Ingredient For LIFE

The Best "Ingredient!"

While many in life seek
 what is  "convenient."
They often are missing
 a major "ingredient..."

This ingredient forms 
 what "makes up the dough..."
I'm talking about what can
truly enrich your soul!

This ingredient will make your
 life 100% complete.
And will bring wholeness from 
your head to your feet...

It's Jesus!  The most important
 part of "life's recipe..."
Without him.  All is lost.  Can't you see???

His love is the bond that can put 
your life back together...
His presence is here now... 
 And can be yours forever!

Allow him to bring the sweetness
 that only he can bring...
He alone is our righteousness... 
 Our everything!

Only he can bring the joy 
you desparately seek.
And will bless your life.  
Each day of the week!

He's the "ingredient" to life...
That you've been looking for!.  
He can supply your every need.
  And so much more!

He truly is what makes 
the "perfect blend."
And is here right now.  Why not let him in???

You're Welcome

He thinks 

Well, he tries but he can't

At least not about anything but me

Linger

I do on his mind 


 

His body…

It trembles 

His eyes 

Cannot focus 

He is completely mine


 

How submissive

 

And it is amazing how he waits 

Uneasy 

For my next word


 

It could drive him over the edge 

He could possibly explode

Please explode

Here We Go

Here we go once again
Argueing
On both we put strain 
Outside there's rain
Inside there's pain
Baby I'm sorry, you say
Yeah whatever you reply
As I look out at the bay 
Still as if deaden by the night
Silence is a key
A key signaling the end of a fight
Within a simple second
From wrong to right
As you come back into sight
Taking this love to a different height
Here we go making up
As a tense shiver bolts through my body
As we begin to kiss, touch, and rub
Slowing and so carelessly finding our way to the tub
Clothes fall off as if we were melting chocolate
You begin to tenderly caress as if know I'll let
It's not like you don't know I'm wet
A tear of joy falls
When your member and mine met
As a steady rhytmn is set
I'm able to look you in the eyes
The house, the walls, the animals of the darkness
Listen to my moans and eager cries
Sweet,sweet baby here we go

Cheerful Tears

It all seems so weird
No more of my mind wondering
No more of the tears
No more of letting the rumors worry me

No more questionig you
Begging for the truth
No more of looking me in the eyes
Promising the truth in your lies

No more of looking dumb while rumors fill my ears
No more going to bed crying silent tears
Trying to ignore the everyday things I hear
While facing the truth that the end of our relationship is drawing so near

No more of my eyes full of tears;
Tears of fear
Instead these tears
Are filled with cheers.

My love

I treasure every meeting of our lips,
Our dreams: as two dew drops melding in eternal kiss
A lake of pure desire; with the depth of eternity
this life stretches before us
shore to unending shore
every grain of sand the first: "I love you" of countless lovers
and the whisper of the breeze "Thee....thou.... and us"

The butterfly fluttering past, with clumsy grace
like our love the wings allowing us to soar
This is the world created by all lovers.
A caw of a lonely bird reminds; that not all are found.
Tears slip down our cheeks as we remember the pain of before
Here and now, we live in triumph because He made us
I ask you to marry me and the question is all of these:

Will you be mine, my Anna? 
Will you be you?
All you are and do is such a gift:
When you make me dinner you feed more than just my body;
and fill more than my belly. 
When you say "I love you" it not only reverberates in my ear drums
When you walk beside me holding my hand I hear, I feel, I know
When you smile my quivering heart strings play rejoicing symphonies 
When you are you; me? I am me.
For my Anna...

Husband or Wife

Days living in
my mind itself
made life feel frozen
        a hell
Loneliness of one

When we first met
I did not realize
it would be you
I would marry
A choice that has 
pleased me in every way

It is hard for me
to remember the sadness
Those days in hell
for you kissed my tears 
into laughter
Making each day
warm with heart
A day in heaven
a lifetime of love

Princess

The Princess in her tower tall
With oaken door and granite wall
Sat sobbing at the window high
“Will someone save me” she did sigh
“Fear not young maid,“ a voice did shout
“For I am here, to get you out;
I have a cunning plan, so sly
To free you from your tower high
I’ll dress as does a man who’s poor
Then knock upon the outer door
And when the guard doth then unlock
I’ll beat his head in with this rock”
“Kind Prince” she said from up above
“You’re someone, I could truly love
But your attempt will be in vain
To rescue me you’ll need a crane
Although your planning may seem sound
I weigh three hundred and twenty pounds” 
The prince then pondered hard and long
And wondered where he’d gone so wrong
He yearned to be a Royal hubby
But not to one who’s quite so chubby.

Shhhhhhh

Oh, how I have loved my most honorable Thee,
You are so provoking and most enduring to me.
Ahhhhhhh, I shall just roll myself away.
Tumbled and tossed all over you today.
Oh, how I really do love Thee,
You are enchanting and you excite me.
“Shhhhhhh”! Maybe I should just go my way.
I am trifled and lost with yet another day,
Oh, how much I have truly loved only Thee,
You are captivating and you entwine me.
Ahhhhhhh, I shall just stop it for the day.
Oh, how I love only that one special Thee!
Zesty and sauced with just a par for a tee,
“Shhhhhhh” is all I can forever calmly say!

The Wedding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

After All These Years Still IN LOVE

Still In Love...
My son came to me with 
a question on his mind.
I said; “Not now son—
I just don't have the time.”

He said, “Daddy—are you still 
in love with Mommy?”
“Do you love her like you did when 
I was in her tummy?”

My eyes choked with tears; 
“Yes son I really do!”
“I'm in love with her...
and I appreciate you.”

“Daddy—will you always love
me like you do mom?”
“Yes my son—my love for you 
will always belong.”

I looked down and much
to my surprise.
There were tears running
down my sons's eyes.

He came running to me with 
his arms wide open.
“Thank you daddy” were his words spoken.

I picked him up and gave
him a great big hug.
As I let him down, on my shirt I felt a tug.

His little arm reached up to grab my hand.
I knew that what I said,
he began to understand.

I love his mom so much—my wonderful wife.
She's been such a blessing-
a great part of my life!

Dear Mom And Dad

Are you the same mom and dad 
I used to know?
Since I left the house… 
many years ago? 

Both who carefully taught 
me the Christian ways.
Don’t seem to care 
what the Bible says. 

You were there to give correction
with a belt in hand.
But now are doing things…
 I don’t understand. 

What happened to the father’s love 
I once seen in your eyes?
You’ve somehow twisted God's 
truth into corruptible lies. 

You’ve broken my heart 
dear mom and dad.
I’m praying for you… 
but my heart grows sad. 

Please… Just this once…
 Listen to me!
I want the Godly parents 
you used to be! 

Please make me proud of the
parents I once knew.
And know that I really love
and appreciate you.
 
You’re my mom and dad… 
You’re the world to me.
And you’re special to God...
It’s plain to see! 

May your days be blessed and 
God’s presence fill your soul.
I will always love you no matter
where you may go. 

Thanks mom and dad for reading
this “special letter.”
With God on board… 
Things will get better!

Are You Discouraged Feel Like Giving Up Without A Job


It was me that my
savior chose...
He’s supplied all my needs—
my food and clothes. 

He was there when I was
laid off from work.
Satan was saying, 
“you’re no good—just a jerk.” 

I admit; “my accomplishments—
I do not boast.”
But I do exalt the Father,
the Son and Holy Ghost. 

If not for God’s love,
I’d be dead, this I know.
This is the reason why
I love him so! 

He’s done so much for me—
it’s hard to express.
The privilege of being God’s son—
I am so blessed! 

I was a clay jar all broken apart,
But the potter put me together
from his heart. 

The glue he used was his
love for me,
That’s why I’m happy
and set free! 

This I know and hope
you’ll understand,
He’ll do the same for you—
just reach out your hand!

Harmony in Marriage (ABC poem)

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





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

You Are My Beloved

You Are My Beloved And the Love Of My Soul… I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valley below… As the lily thrives among the thorns.. My love for you grows! As the apple tree lives amongst the other trees in the woods. My commitment to be with you is clearly understood. I’ve invited you to this banqueting table under a banner of love. Stay with me and comfort me. You’re a gift from God above! As I listen to your voice. May it leap from the mountain tops! In my heart… You’re more beautiful that the clearest raindrops! You spoke to me; “My love…” “Please arise.” I come to you and see the beauty in your eyes! My dove, you are in the cleft of the rocks. In a “secret place.” Let me see the beauty, that shines on your face! I shall always cherish and love you… Much more than you can give.... My love grows ever so deeper…. Each day you live! When the sun arises… And the shadows shall turn away. Your beauty arises! And brightens my life every day! Your beauty and wisdom is something to behold! You’re more precious to me than the purest gold! My love for you shall endure beyond the end of time! How I long to be with you! I’m so glad you’re mine! By Jim Pemberton 11/27/11 Read Song of Sol.

once longing love

This time your eyes don't seem to bare the familiar strength
you been staying away from me you've gone to every length
i did every thing i could to lend a helping hand
now your broken and its hard to under stand
this was no ones plan love makes harsh demands

even though i can see your heart is truly broke
when i tried to hold you i was just a joke
now things are changed nothing like before
i have become something so much more
a ache still nags deep within my core a life left in ashes spread upon the floor

i wonder where you ll go who you ll see
i wonder if the only thing you think about is me
the empty hole of things left unsaid
a wall of noise stands strong in my head
some how this feel like I'm dead but I'm watching in you go instead

how many times could i try to be the one you needed but i know it was the ego i feed ed
a callous soul without any notion of truth hope or devotion
farewell my once longing love

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

BLUE FEELINGS

Hello my darling, how do you do?
I have a question pertaining to you.
Why does your heart seems to be true
But your actions tend to make me feel blue?
I think we need to talk all this through
But I’ll do the talking instead of you.
When you stay out late, what is it you do?
The things that I’ve heard, I hope there not true!
Don’t say anything until I am through.
I’m tired of feeling this feeling so blue
So I figured out what I’m going to do.
For now on I’m going to go out with you.
I’ll see for myself if all of its true
And I swear if it is you'll be more than blue.
Now you may talk because I am through.

Hello my darling, how do you do?
I have a question that best fits to you.
You know that my heart has always been true
So there is no reason that you should feel blue.
And yes I agree we should talk this through
But now I’m talking instead of you.
What is it that you think that I do?
How can you think what you've heard can be true?
You had your turn so wait tell I’m through.
I’m sorry that you're feeling so blue.
If that’s what it is that you want to do
That’s fine; I’d love to go out with you.
The gossip and rumors you'll see are not true. 
Why would you believe them and make yourself blue?
This is my question so please think it through.

Masked Man

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You wanted to roam 
I wanted a home for 
two. 

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

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


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

The Power of Words

A, B, and C 
These letters won’t do you justice 
But when I use these letters to create word that can describe your mind and body 
I am able to set fire to your senses that command you’re every thought 
 As you sit here and read this your able to feel as I feel tell that even the complexity of this 
poem 
Show you that I can express my feeling even though the words on this page
The words that I can use to describe your body firstly
Powerful Words like soft, beautiful, smooth, divine
Then we can use technical terms like I can run my hands over your Gluteus maximum
Or over your Pectorals Major where your mammary glands are held 
The power in words can make you even forget the world around you
Words as simple in complexity as love and hate can have an endless amount of meanings
But when these simple world are use to describe you and me the world that comes to mind is
Great!!!!
This word can say that our relationship knows no limits the way we can express the feeling that 
comes over us
The way I can wake up and still feel you next to me even when hundreds of miles away from 
each other
As I get to this point in the poem I can feel that you want to cry  
Because of this overwhelming expression of feelings someone has never had for you can come 
out in only one page.
Well my love I just show you THE POWER OF WORDS

               We were married in the summer of nineteen ninety-four,
               For better or worst and forever more.
               When we married I felt this is where my life begins, 
               That you and I would always be the very best of friends.
               We can over come any hard times again and again, 
               As long as we remember we vowed to be best friends.
               Through all the obstacles that have come our way, 
               We have learned to be thankful for every new day.
               Through this and through that,
               Through thick and through thin,
               I'll never forget I married my best friend.

God Can Bring Healing To YOur Marriage

God Can Heal Your Marriage!

How often have you told your 
wife you love her?
Only to be caught in the arms of “another…”

The vows that were made... 
 The promises given.
God gives a chance for you 
to be forgiven!

A husband and wife are sanctioned
 by our Lord…
But often end up in anger,
 bitterness and discord.

Jesus can mend the hurt and remove the pain.
And bring a healing to
 any guilt or shame.

He loves you with a Godly 
jealousy that is evident.
Into your heart and life…  
He longs to be a resident.

Won’t you allow his power
 to bring a restoration?
Before your family is heading
 toward a separation?

Let his words of hope and
 love be the glue.
And bring a new meaning to the words;
 “I LOVE YOU!”

May you be “caught up” in your 
heavenly father’s embrace.
And allow his love
 to put a smile on your face!

What God has joined as one. 
 He can keep together.
Won’t you allow him to bless
 your marriage forever?

My Father's Seven Days

My Father's Seven Days 

“Come”  I climbed up on my Father’s lap…
“Sleep” he said; but, I didn’t want a nap…

I looked up at him and He gave me a smile..
I decided then I wanted to stay awhile…

“Tell me about what was created” I asked then grinned…
As I sat up eagerly so proper and prim..…..

“Okay” He chucked, but his laugh was uncontrollable..
I wanted to know all so, I got very comfortable….

“The first day Father created was the day and the night…
Then I asked “that’s called morning and evening right?“

“Yes, and on the second day was earth and heavens…
I impatiently asked “what was number seven“?

“On the third day came plants, flowers and things good to eat”!
Then Father smiled tenderly and stated “even the trees!”

“Then on the forth came the sun, moon and stars ..”
I pointed on a special “ night sky and shouted “there is Mars!”

“On the fifth day was the fish and the birds”
I laughed and said “that’s the funniest thing I’ve heard”

“On the sixth day was people and  animals to fill the land!”
I was feeling happily tired so I grabbed for His hand….

“How about the seventh day”?  I asked then yawned with a smile…
“Later“, he said; you rest for now my precious little child”.

Forever yours

The best things in life are not things, but people like you With one signal touch my body goes numb, with a single kiss my legs go weak can this be real, I thought the part of me to feel was gone hurt so many times and afraid to come out, with one single touch it is there ready to build strength again, I want to be there for every moment of your life I want to laugh with you when you’re happy, I want to hold you when your sad, when things get tough and you don’t think you can go on I’ll be there holding your hand letting you know things will be okay, I want to laugh with you cry with you, I want to share and build my hopes and dreams with you, I want to watch the sun rise and set with you, you are the one I have chosen to call my own, I promise to love and care for all of our life and when that life is gone and I have moved on I will wait for you, and when judgment day has arrived and you must go the other way, I’ll give back my wings hallow and everything to be with you that’s how much I care, so if you let me in I will never fade out I will be yours, forever yours

My Honey

When I look upon you in the morning
And your eyes are still in restful sleep
I know soon you will rise
And be working in our garden,
Yet I will feel you close to me.

When you are busy doing something 
You cherish, your happiness spills over.
The flowers know your tender touch,
And so do I.
Their happy little faces smile and bloom,
And so does mine.

The First Time

The first time we made love I cried and I was in heaven
When I first seen you I fall Head over hills in love with you
The first time we kissed and I milted

You are the first man that I loved that loved me back
We had our problems in the passed but we made it through them
We had our first big fight for the first time but it made us stronger then ever

Six year together and sill going strong 
You and I are one and will be for Thirty six more years to come
The first day you gave me the ring I fall in love with you all over again 

You are the first man that I would ride or die for 
You are like a drug habit I get so high when I am with you 
We are closer now then we ever was 

For the first time when I am in you are I feel Safer then ever 
You are the first am that I talk about getting marred to
When that day comes I will feel like I am falling in love for the first time

When we make love it feels like we are making love for the first time
I never want to hart you 
You are the love of my life 
 I will cater to your every need 
Any thing you need me to do I will do
You also make me feel like a real woman

To Antwan I love you so much

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

Are You Being Used By God

 I met someone in a very 
difficult situation.
I kept walking and gave
 "no explanation."

I was then asked a very
 direct question:
"I thought you said that 
you're a Christian!"

I began to feel a conviction 
within my soul.
"Which direction should I take"  
I didn't know.

Either keep walking, or stop 
to help this person in need.
"I suppose just this once... 
I'll do a generous deed."

I reached out and loved 
him in Jesus' name.
And told him that it was for his life 
that our savior came.

My heart was broken as I heard 
all he had gone through.
I was speechless.  I really didn't
 know what to do.

I decided to buy him a cup of coffee 
and a sandwich as well.
And shared that Jesus loves
 him more than words can tell.

He thanked me and said, 
"I'm so glad that you care."
I then was able to lead him 
into a  salvation prayer.

We talked more about God before 
we each went our own way.
But I'll never forget what happened 
that particular day.

It helped me begin to 
realize and truly see...
How God wants so much to use 
someone like me...

' Give Me Your Shoulder ... '

I’ll Give You My Hand …
If You Give Me, Your Shoulder
I’ll Give You My Shy
If You Give Me, Your Bolder
I’ll Give You My Cool
If You Give Me, Your Colder
I’ll Give You My Hugs
If You Give Me, Your ‘Hold-Her’
I’ll Give You My Trust
If you Give Me, Your ‘Told-Her’

I’ll Give You My … ‘Me’
If You Give, ‘Us’ Growing-Older
And for Nights of Crimson-Heat
Roll Me In Sunshine and Clover
And I’ll Give You My Love
If You Give Them, Your ‘Just Love-Her’
… Yes, I Will Give To You Over
And Over and Over …
… If I Give You, My Hand
And You Give Your Strong Shoulder

I Am Me

He went away,
She was alone,
You came into the picture;
Because she chose you.

A new life was good,
Then change came,
And there I was in a frame;
Uplifted, upheld.

First I was unaware,
I was just a child,
A slave became I;
The pain was real.

You over looked,
As always you did not care,
I was scared;
Felt so alone.

Choices had to be made,
But what road would I take?
So unsure, broken, taken;
No time to waste.

He came along,
Took me in,
You hated him; 
I hated you.

Didn’t know I could,
Handle it on my own,
Didn’t know I was stronger;
Than “ do as I’m told “


Forced to be.
Who I never wanted to be,
He brought out in me a strength;
Renewed, happiness is real.

You could just die,
I wont let you ruin me,
I’m going to be;
More  than I knew I could be.

You will see,
Away from you,
A part from pain;
I am me!

This brokeness inside will heal,
Their wont be anymore pain,
That tragedy of my past;
The tears, the pain, hurt and fear.

He saw through them all,
He didn’t let me fall,
He reminded me of who I am;
When you didn’t care.

I was scared,
Felt threatened,
Full of regret;
But he seen me.

He wont forsake me in my weakness,
His love is written on my heart,
I’m going to be over you;
The hate will fade.

I will be stronger,
My heart will beat longer,
I have the rest of my life;
I’m going to be me!

You can’t take my future,
Or draw the curtains anymore,
No more ball and chain;
I am free.

I have pulled the plug,
Down the drain you go,
I’m seeing the world through new eyes;
The sun is shining again.

I’m not scared anymore,
I’m not afraid to reach out,
A voice in the wilderness;
Crying out was I.

He had an ear,
He heard me,
When no one else could;
He saw Me!

The Truth

Whats this love for? Is it worth it this time?
Are you gonna break my heart? 
Are you truly gonna be mine? 
Guys will say anything behind those jail walls , but 
the sad thing is I wouldn't believe you even if you 
weren't in jail at all.
You've done some horrible things Bobby. 
You truly broke my heart.
When I lost you my whole damn world feel apart.
I'm not saying that to make you feel bad.
I'm saying that cause when I lost my whole world got sad.
I'm not perfect never have been but , I truly loved you 
and still remained your friend.
Now 7 years later the same words you once said.
I love you Megan , I need you so bad.
The sound of your voice is still the same and hidden in your words are lies.
Things are different this time. I'm not the same girl.
If you try to play games with me I promise I will get the highest score.
I won't fall for it this time I'm mean it I do.
I won't let another guy put me threw what you put me threw , not even you.
If you love me we can hold each other threw all this bad weather.
We can get threw it together , but if you hurt me its gonna be bad. 
Not trying to sound mean but my pride is all that I have. 
I promise to love you & be there till the end , and if *****gets to 
deep I promise to remain your friend. 
I hope you do the same , but I hope even more you mean what your saying.
Just be honest Bobby thats all I ask. If you do that I willing to let go of the past.
I wont bring it up no more , if you can show me there's a reason I fell in love with you.
I want to know there is love behind all this pain we've been threw.
If you can do that then the sun will truly shine , and the gas is greener on the other side.
Most of I will be your everything and you'll be mine.
I'll love and cherish you and when you do time I'll do time.
Like Bonnie & Clyde if you show me you love me , I'll ride or die. 
To the end of time , you could be the only man that's on my mind.
That's precious. Getting me to say some *****like that is a blessing.
I hope you learned your lesson. Your 34 I hope your ready to man up , and be all 
that you can be and more. You owe to it yourself but even more to your kids.
You need to show them their dad's not as bad as everyone says he is. 
I know together we can make it. If I didn't it would be heartbreak that I'm risking
taking. 
So please hear my words their is more to life than trying to put yourself in the dirt.
Stand up and realize what your worth I want you to love yourself and remember I 
loved you first.

Jesus Is A True Foundation For Your Marriage

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Childbirth

You have consummated the dream
upon its fertile mind            have given birth
your Sons are to be Kings for ruling in the earth
like life I wish that we would never part
our connection like the beating of one heart
 
because I have believed your heart was true
therefore did I give mine               permanently to you
You have shown me      a love of Sons of Men
not of his clothing         but what he hides within
you didst reveal this                   by your own right hand
did speak soft words until     we could understand
You saw not my skin                or what one outside see
you gazed within             looked upon the real me
 
Enfolded in your arms just like a child
your forgiveness and tender mercies mild
where you hold us until each of us can hear
understand completely the Words spoken in our ear
 
Love should have been the first thing
you met when you were born
the warm embrace which followed
when from wombs comfort torn
 
Cradle me my Beloved in your arms
hold at a distance all of my alarms
I want to walk with you 
until there's endless days
seek the crown of creation
and understanding of his ways
pleasant are the days I spend with you
my Lord , just master of his house
to you my one only
is my heart espoused
Like a mighty warrior you have mounted up
the valor of your deeds have filled my every cup
without you near my heart is empty still
but cries with its distress
until with you my life instill
 
As  bird you gathered us beneath your wings
your endearment descends like mountains streams
there within the wilderness were we broken
until we received knowledge of the promise spoken
 
Songs of the Kings

Our Union

Our Union
	
My eyelashes bat 
After meeting your gaze
From across a 
Crowded subway haze.
 
My pupils dilate when they
Look back at you over dinner
Where we drank wine and ate.
 
My feet dance with glee as we
Fall hopelessly in love 
In the midst of summer heat.
 
My heart splits apart 
To become your wife
And your forever sweetheart.
 
My legs spread 
Open to bare new life
And see your cheeks rosen.
 
My arms push 
You away at night,
I'm too tired for a sex life.
 
My fists rage and tears pour,
When I discover your arms
Embracing another lover
After coffee one early morn.
 
My ears listen to 
Your words of regret and
Pleads for a second chance
For things to be like
When we first met.
 	
My fingers dial 
Seeking third party counsel
To repair our shattered union.
 
My brain waves 
Shift to understand your
Thoughts and your feelings, 
While I bitterly convey my own.
 
My hand re-opens 
To forgive your sins
And make amends.
 
My lips part to 
Receive your kiss in the
Night in a sea of 
Skin in our warm bed.
 
My heart flutters, 
We’ve truly become one,
Years after we bore our son.

The Look On My Child's Face

Just yesterday I noticed a look of
 love on my child’s face.
This happened in a most  “ordinary place.”

It was in our home...a place
 by God’s own design.
I felt God speaking to my heart
 this particular time.

I didn’t take any time to
 stop and realize,
The look of love and innocence
 in my child’s eyes.

“Am I being the kind of Dad
 God wants me to be?”
“Am I being an example of Christ
 for my child to see?”

Have I been demonstrating my
 God-given ability,
teaching my kids God’s love,
 and responsibility?

May a Christ-like life in my kids
 be clearly seen and understood,
As one day they will 
grow into adulthood.

I hope that one day my
 Children will say:
“I want to be like my Dad-
every single day!”

robust wanderings
bring you near
walking stick and old canteen

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

Charity

If I had the ability to comprehend,
All languages around the earth and;
Have not charity for my neighbors,
What good would I be worth?
If my faith could move the highest of mountains,
Also all my mysteries I understood;
If I show no love to those who “despitefully” use me,
I would not be any good.
If I used all my possessions,
To help the unfortunate (not expecting gain);
Gave my body without sincerity,
Then my work would be in vain.
Authentic love is to sacrifice,
Is not jealous and does not boast;
Since it truly comes from the heart,
It will extend from coast to coast.
Does not enjoy unlawful doings,
Loves to hear spiritual facts;
Not always aiming to please ones self,
Endures all short coming acts.
For the mysteries and philosophies,
That we presently comprehend;
Along with all the knowledge and understanding,
It will come to an end.
For the knowledge we know is part,
Moreover, the mysteries we understand are some;
Yet when the “TRUMP OF GOD” has sounded,
Only then shall we know that the “PERFECT” has come.
When I was young I was immature,
I thought I knew all things;
Still when Jesus became Lord of my life,
I put away those immature things.
Think on these things and endure without yielding,
These words of inspiration and clarity;
However, with the gifts, Charity, Hope and Faith,
Remember, the greatest is Charity.

Two Hearts

~ Two Hearts ~

I have liked you from the first time I met you
I just was not sure that you felt the same way
As our friendship grew I found my feelings growing too.
Having you in my life 
Makes me feel like I am the luckiest girl alive
For my best friend is also my Boyfriend
And maybe if it all goes right someday
We will be more 
However, one thing is for sure
Just the thought of you and my heart flutters
As I imagine that special look in your eyes
I forget for a moment that we are two people 
Not just one and We Have 

~ Two Hearts ~

Before I met you, I thought that all the good ones were gone
How lucky I am to snatch you up
For you are one of the few good guys left
You are someone I want to keep around
Forever may not be enough for us
When our hearts sometimes seem to beat as one
So please be mine Valentine
Let us be one with our

Simplicity

Your face is like an angel, calming and serene.
I pace back and forth just thinking of when you came into my life.
I honestly believe in you, I'm holding on as the days drag on.
I've become lost in your eyes and I can tell that I was offered a chance.
A chance to be the best I can, to pick myself up and not have a set plan.
Everyday is like a winding road where each turn leads to better things.
I'll hit bumps and get bruised but I'll never be hurt by you.

I Love You

I love you
I never really knew you
You were just another friend
But when I got to know you,I let my heart bend.
I could'nt help my past memories that would make me cry
I had to forget my first love and give love another try
So i've fallen in love with you andI'll never let you go
I love you more than anyone, I just had to let you know
And if you ever wonder why,I don't know what I'll say
But i will never stop loving each and everyday
My feelings for you will never change, just know my feelings are true
Just remember one thing........

I Once Knew A Man Who Did Things His Family Didn't Understand

I once Knew a man who thought
 "things would get better."
He had children and a wife.
  But soon left her.

He met someone who "captivated his eyes."
Having an appetite for her "beauty." and lies.

His wife loved God and the
 kids with all of her heart.
"How could this happen?"  
This question "ripped her apart."

As a family.  They went to church...
 and did their "Sunday best."
How could this "happy" family
 turn into such a mess?

Temptation can happen to anyone. 
 Rich or poor.
Be careful wha  you allow to
 enter your heart's door.

Regardless of whether you've been
 a "Christian" for "20 years..."
One shameful act can cause
 heartache and tears.

What God has given to you...
  Let no one take way.
No matter what others think...
 Or what they might say.

Stay true to God.  You'll be 
glad you did!
His love and joy will bless you
 each day that you live!

This saviour is HERE NOW!  
And will never leave you alone!
Allow HIM to bring peace and
 love to your troubled home!

He’s an ordinary person
With an ordinary life
With two ordinary children
And an ordinary wife
In an ordinary house
In an ordinary place
Drives an ordinary car
At an ordinary pace
In his ordinary suit
And his ordinary shirt
In an ordinary office
Does his ordinary work
He’s just mister ordinary
Every ordinary day
And he’s really very happy
In his ordinary way

When two becomes one

Friday night arrives,
leaves me gasping for breath 
as I try to compose myself 
and answer the door.
Six foot two and dark brown hair 
with doe brown eyes, 
cleanly shaved and
the rest of him hidden
behind an armful of 
the biggest most colorful
bunch of lilies I've seen and
a bottle of wine in the other.
He beams at me,
right eyebrow lifts as he greets me
best as he can with flowers in my back.

We pass through the kitchen 
flowers placed aside in bowl of water,
glass of wine in hand,
as I finish.
I can feel his presence
warm against my neck 
as he spins me around
to gaze into my eyes, 
crushing my lips fervently.
Hands search deeper into my skin
pressing his longing towards me.
So long we have waited for this moment
a soldiers life taking him away from me
for months on end.

A powerful desire takes over
hurriedly he sweeps me off my feet
gathering my skirt 
he makes me float on air.
Thumping heartbeats 
vibrating against one another
as we mount the stairs to the bedroom.

He sets me back on my feet tenderly,
stroking my hair as if remembering,
burying his nose against my neck,
devouring its familiar fragrance,
he takes time to rediscover
familiar territory, 
arousing his attention,
prepared to fulfill his role.
His duty to prepare for battle 
to send his men in 
to perform their duties
and get out as quickly as possible.
Allowing but one's entry
to safety, to ensure 
humanity's existence as per orders.

Entwined together 
our bodies fight for peace,
every emotion passes through us,
all those turbulent times 
now surrendered,
misgivings forgotten,
months of love bundled 
from two into one.
We create...

Will He Be

Will he be my lover...
Will he be my friend...
Will he be the one who's with me...
to the very end.

Will he be the one...
who tells me
that I'll always be his Queen...
that I possess the greatest beauty...
of any woman he's ever seen.

Will he be the one...
that puts the light back in my eyes...
to make them sparkle and glimmer,
Will he be the one to dispense
with all life's lies.

Will he be the one to hold me...
forever and a day...
Will he be the one to love me...
as if every month were May.

Will he be the one to comb back
my hair
and hold it in his hand

Will he be the one
to whisper to me
sweetly in my ears...

Will he be the one that I'll always want
that I'll forever want to be near.

Will he be the one
whose reflections...
alway make me think anew...
who makes me a better person...
who never makes me blue.

Will he be my vision..
of all I'll ever want
that I'll want to remain forever
as two combined into one.

Will his very memory..
always occupy my mind
Will my thoughts and dreams of him
Hauntingly resonate,
until the end of time.

CONTENTMENT

CONTENTMENT


No one is immune to the pitfalls of stress 
Though some seem to avoid its toll.
The three qualities that set hardy people apart
Are love of challenge, commitment and control.

People who are happy tend to see challenge, or change
As an opportunity for growth not a threat.
Their commitment means involvement and engaging life
In marriage, children, the work place, the battle field or debt. 

Those who rate higher in their duties of commitment
Feel more meaning and purpose in what they achieve.
The third trait control, is essentially determination
To have triumphs in life by how we respond and  believe.

There are skills, habits, and traits to adopt and cultivate
Which help make the smart decisions we depend on for life.
It also helps to take time for prayer and self evaluation
To make sure we haven’t changed from the dilemmas of strife.

Optimism along with positive thinking come naturally
When our need to serve others we refuse to deny or ration.
Contentment takes hard work, grit, faith and spirituality 
Lots of love, understanding, forgiveness, and compassion.

My Knight And I

Humbled yet content, my Knight and I... though never assumed with boundaries
Can God be limited?...  He, who owns the cattle on a thousand hills.

Should we be afflicted...  my Knight and I, whatever the plight? 
knowing well our steps are ordered by the ’Kings of Kings’

Oft’ times the trial becomes weary... 
memory echoes...  “Rejoice, rejoice my beloved”, 
reminding us... ‘as we abound and are pleased, 
when we are abased, contentment must also be’

My Knight and I... ascertained as the ‘Apostle Paul’... 
in whatever direction our path may lead... 
adjustments made... we are content.

Invaluable lesson bestowed upon My Knight and I....
When the hard times come for others, 
We have learned how to direct prayers effectively...
  
Not always that ‘abundance will flow’... but that ‘Joy will come with gratification’ 
during ‘this fiery trial’

I'm sorta me

I love 80's music
and talk radio AM
I can't sleep
I keep being the person I was, I am
I just keep being me
Sometimes it doesn't really work out
I sorta wonder why don't I change
And then I just  don't  care
But that's me
the forty something chick with a nose stud
and a husband 
who wonders the same thing

WANDERING Eyes

Wandering Eyes... 


Have you been captured by 
the wandering of your eyes? 
Things you once held as true and 
wholesome-- you now despise. 

Have you been “captured” 
by an outward beauty? 
Thereby neglecting your 
God-given duty? 

Has your soul been consumed with 
sin's all-consuming fire? 
With an uncontrollable appetitie 
and an ungodly desire. 

In your heart, is the Holy Spirit 
an uninvited guest? 
No wonder your life is in 
such a huge mess! 

Your head is filled with fantasies 
and temptations of every kind. 
You pretend on the outside. But you've 
lost control of your mind. 

For your failures—you have 
only yourself to blame. 
Now's the time to repent— 
and call on Jesus' name! 

Though your sins be red as scarlet-- 
they can be washed as white as snow. 
Only Jesus can be true peace and 
satisfaction to your troubled soul.

The Color Beautiful

I saw you just the other day.
You stood there all alone.
I watched as the Suns shadow beat down upon you.
Your eyes and mine were both hesitant at the glimpse of shade.
You stood so firm and adamant, 
Your posture was mine to admire and to please!
The color beautiful was everything that I had ever imagined it could be!
I could see the winds tousling through your flawless shiny hair,
A cool breeze tenderly caressing an unexpected stern face! 
You stood so tall. You were bigger than anything I had ever seen.
I watched you shiver as the cold draft reached from underneath bringing its sharpest autumn air.
You stood there completely impervious to time, person and to place.
The color beautiful captured hidden chills inside of me as I embraced that very same breeze.
I could feel the warmth of your breath upon me,
You stood there with a true look of total awareness.
I could no longer feel my heart quicken to beat, 
For I had lost every one of my God given perceptual senses.
I could feel your warmth covering over me baring my only gift to see.
You stood as a man with much honor and pride.
Such an obvious completeness!
The color beautiful instantly became everything in this world to me.
Because in your eyes you left no doubt that I am still your princess!

My Love

He picks me up when Im down,
Chases the clouds away,
And brings me back to sunshine.
He wipes away my tears,
Cleans the blood,
And holds me until the pain is gone.
I can be sadder than sad
And in 10 minutes he can make me smile;
Maybe a watery smile, but a smile either way.
Thinking about him gives me butterflies
And looking into his eyes I see so much love;
I feel so much love.
I dont know what I did to deserve this;
I know I'll never be lonely with him by my side;
I'll always feel safe, always be happy,
And know he wont leave me.
He makes me want to do things I never did before;
Things I thought I wouldnt want to do.
Any day spent with him is special;
I dont think I could have a bad day with him;
It would get better somehow.
He taught me how to cry, 
Taught me how to laugh,
He taught me how to live.

Little Boy

I wish I could capture
    This little boy
On paper;
    In a picture,
A painting,
    Or pencil drawing,
But I cant freeze a two-year-old
    Who's constantly moving,
So I write...
    His round brown-haired head
Bobbing around the room
    Hiding behind a chair
Grinning from around the corner
    Squirming in 'Gramma Minnie's' lap
Too excited for a picture
    His bright blue eyes dancing
With mischief
    Dashing away from 'Daddy'
His clear laughter
    Bubbling up
When he's captured
    And Daddy swings him
Into the air;
    Its a perfect moment;
A little boy's adventures,
    Putting a smile 
On everyone's face.

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.

You Are My Curse

I had to let it all go,
The day and night,
Their hours ran too slow.
It was more than just a fight.
I trusted you and knew you,
My love succumbed to the worst,
Faith and loyalty just wouldn’t do.
You became my curse.
 
I was pulled down to Earth’s plane,
And judgment did set in.
Then new days begin.
I stood parallel as many went insane.
My heart drenched and my soul crunched,
I couldn’t let my heart take this very much.
I died and I died losing each endless breath,
I swallowed the victory and ate your death.
 
You reaped and I sowed,
But I saw no one grow,
Not even you.
What was I to do?
I let it go very slow,
Now I am all grown,
And I’m on my own.
I died watching you go.
 
I will always remember begging mercy,
I will always know this pain,
You are my curse you see,
And nothing did you gain.
I can never just be alright,
I can never love you the same again.
I died watching you go out of sight.
You are my curse and forever in my heart you made an end.

Breathe Together

“Together Breathe”
I look away when
You speak to me,
Trying to pretend that
I’m listening but I’m not,
I’m such a snot!

I’m in my head,
Thinking to myself

I’m holding on to
Your every word,
I want to play,
Wanting to please you,
Want to make sure that I say
Just that right thing
That you want me to say
Each day.

Where do we connect?
How do we meet
Each other’s needs?
How do we plant our seeds
And do good deeds?
How do we
Together breathe.

Are Things In Your Life Out Of Place

Are Things In Life "Out Of Place?"

I visited a garage sale.  And had a 
surprised look on my face.
I noticed that some things
 were "out of place."

To my right... Was a shelf filled with books.. 
And Christian ones too.
To my left...  Was a sign that read; 
"I have adult movies for you."

I wondered and thought with 
some kind of amazement.
"Does this person read these books. 
 And watch this "entertainment?"

This is common in many Christian homes...
Often...  People cross God's 
"boundaries" and "safety zones."

Anyone can go to church. 
 Pray, sing and "shed a tear."
Not realizing that sin's temptation
 is drawing ever so near.

Do you seek God's holiness and the 
power of Jesus' name?
But each night...  Before bedtime... 
 Things aren't quite the same...

Have you opened up your heart 
and mind...  And live life unfulfilled?
Is this the way you ought to live? 
 Is this what God has willed?

He desires to live inside of you.
  And help you to discover.
With any stronghold in life.  
He'll help you to recover!

Are things in life "out of place?"  
And need to be put back together?
Allow God's word to guide you!  
His promises are forever!

Everything will be where it should be...  
With Jesus In control!
Only he can defeat the enemy that 
seeks to destroy your soul!

Right

You saved me and our boys
when you count the matchsticks
you might think you came out
on the side that don't flick

And so we fight

You love a slightly unbalanced wife 
you endure an unbalanced checkbook
you live a life that keeps you breathing
a life based on a chance you took

But you were right

Welcome to Your Wife

If I were you for a day and you were me?
Could you love me more than I love you?
Would I love you more each day and be new?
Will the Sun shine bright in our eyes to see?
 
When will the Moon glow and lead our way to be?
When will the Stars shine bright by just us two?
Why does the dust give up its spurs on the dew?
Why are the doors locked with only one master key?
 
Welcome to my life,
Welcome to my home,
Welcome to your wife.
Welcome to this dome.
 
Welcome to the Sunrise this day in the light,
And welcome to the Sunset on this lovely night!

My Dear

My Dear, I tell you in words, that I love you true.
Sometimes I feel that is not enough, just for you.

So I am writing this letter in rhyme from my heart.
Though I show you, I love you, on every days start.

This is not sufficient, for one that gloriously divine.
Adequate expressions are lost to describe, .love of mine.

Gifts unavailable to express, all that I have received.
My Dear, delivering my treasures, completely as conceived.

Each night my goal, to slowly fulfill your expectations,
Together our souls; will discover such exploitations.

King David And Bathsheba

There was a great king, 
whom did sin and fall.
David.  When from his balcony, 
Bathsheba he saw.

In his heart... he sinned as 
lust was conceived.
A plan of muder in his heart 
was soon received.

This sin led to another 
and had soon willed.
To have Bathsheba's 
husband to be killed.

The consequences of his sin
 was later explained.
His first born died, and his 
son Absalom was slain.

Once his sin was conceived, 
it brought lust and soon death.
Sin is always this way--
until you take your last breath.

Think of the consequences... 
and flee tempation FAST.
Enjoy a victory and blessings 
from God that will last!

Unconditional love

“Unconditional Love”
Waiting 
Wanting, lusting
To be held,
To be respected,
To be loved 
To feel your warmth 
To feel your desire to be with me
Knowing that you feel the same way for me as I do for you
Hoping that you would fill all my desires and inner fire that burns
for you deep inside my heart I new that are love was flawless from the start
I need to be sheltered from the cold sometimes I feel as if there is nowhere for me to go 
Into your arms is were I want to be to smell your scent or feel your touch these things they mean so much.
The way that you make me feel is something I cannot explain it’s like a passionate kiss or making love in the rain. When I look into your eyes I know that you truly love me and that there is no other place you would rather be.
Without you there would be no me this should be so plain to see 
So how dare them to even try to compare, they act like they no but have no clue how much it is that I love you.

Do You Hold A Grudge

I knew of a "brother" who held a grudge.
From his position.  He wouldn't "budge."

When asked why he held this...
 against a certain person.
Having nothing to do with him. 
 He was certain!

The reason for this grudge...  
Is probably "silly" to many.
When asked for a good reason.  
There wasn't any.

He said; "I don't hold any 
kind of unforgiveness."
"What I do..."  "It's none of your business!"

"I don't hold a grudge and I
 want to be clear!"
"There are some people... 
 I wish weren't here!"

Are there people in your life 
who've been "shut out.?"
"Is this what being Christ' example is all about?

Living for Christ is not about who we "avoid."
If a life of Godliness is to be fully enjoyed.

We can make "excuses" to stay
 away from somebody.
This could be your brother.  
Neighbor.  Or anybody.

Christ gave his life and wants 
us to follow his rules...
He knows all about us....  And is never fooled!

May your life be filled with 
compassion for every soul.
In doing this...  You'll be made 
complete and whole!

Discover true freedom.  Leave any 
"grudges" in the past.
Enjoy true victory in Christ...  
And a peace that 'll last!

Locked Away

My husbands actions locked with my soul and remained at our frount door,
He reenlisted again and had left for the Afganistan war.
My eyes became swollen the tears begain to pour.
Then all of a sudden, for some reason, one day I wasn't mad at him anymore.
I inwardly waited to hear his keys rattle and his duffle hit the floor.

YEARS OF GOLD

  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.

Have Things In LIfe Taken The Wrong Turn


Maybe things in your life have 
taken "the wrong turn," 
Life is passing you by—-
you're not concerned...

Things that were important... 
are important no more, 
Life seems so dull and dry-rather a bore.

Your love for your friends 
and family is gone, 
Almost everything you do...
it's all wrong!!!

Your life seems to be like a ship 
lost out on the sea, 
You cry, "Lord-what is happening to me???"

Jesus loves you so much...
he really does understand, 
Waiting there to pick you up-
with a special loving hand.

He'll replace your loneliness 
witha satisfying love, 
Putting your life back together
 gently, like a gentle dove...

His perfect love will give you 
a peace of mind, 
So call on him now---
NOW is the time!

True Love

There was a time 
When I thought love would pass me by
But at that moment
You walked into my life 
You filled my heart with so much joy
Words could not explain
Like the love of a child with a new toy
I could relive this moment again

I have dreamed of this moment
As I'm sure everyone has
The confirmation of God's word
Has shown me true love at last
I knew it was right
Because it was sent from above
Through God you complete my life
And that's why this is TRUE LOVE

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.

The Day After Your Brithday

THE DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY,
YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR TO SEE:
A) YOU'VE GOT A ZIT FROM EATING ALL THAT CAKE;
B) YOUR LOVE HANDLES HAVE EXPANDED A HALF INCH;
C) YOU SINGED YOUR EYEBROWS BLOWING OUT THE CANDLES.
THE DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY,
A) YOU REQUIRE SIX EXTRA HOURS OF SLEEP;
B) YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR LIVING ROOM UNDER THE BIRTHDAY DEBRIS;
C) YOU WONDER HOW YOU COULD POSSIBLY HAVE DONE THAT.
THE DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY, IT'S TIME TO:
A) RETURN SOME GIFTS (WHAT IS THAT, ANYWAY?);
B) CALL YOUR FRIENDS AND APOLOGIZE FOR YESTERDAY;
C) GET OUT OF THE COUNTRY, FAST.
THE DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY...
WE SHOULD ALL LOOK SO GREAT
AND HAVE IT SO GOOD!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
APPRECIATE YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE!

Next To You

The one room apartment, 
The couch that we shared.
We could never make rent,
900's not fair.
To two dead broke kids,
In a half-dead town.
We want to make it,
But we don't know how.
Work scrapes by, 
The day drags on.
Records, the only thing we own.
Sing cracked on a player,
So old and so true.
The singer cries out,
"It was nice waking up next to you."
The one room apartment,
The one we don't own.
But your sea sick smile,
Screams home sweet home.

My Lover My Friend

Where were you my love when I wore my frown?
When my mind and heart were completely down,

Matters not, now where you were those days,
All that matters now, how I feel in many ways,

A smile that sweetens my day and night so pure,
Words that you whisper, raptures my demure.

One touch of your hand lures me awake.
Your kiss, so soft, warm like a summer lake,

When we touch in love our bodies in tune,
Our passion secured, embodied in the moon.

We walk each hour holding hands, feeling secure.
Our sanctity guaranteed, forever love insured.

My lover, my friend, confident forever more,
Entwined, sensually bound, in fantastic allure.

My Husband

You are my strength when the world weighs me down.
I know that I can count on you to be there tomorrow.
When I am afraid you offer courage I can borrow.
Days I feel frumpy you treat me like I wear a crown.

You made me a mother to 4 beautiful babies.
Always leading, teaching, sharing your heart.
Never needing to wait for someone else to start.
Encouraging me though a bad case of the maybes.

You carry yourself with the aura of a king.
There to guide me when I feel lost without hope.
Helping me learn from frustrations and to cope.
Yet still act so young pushing children on a swing.

My dear you fill my life with warmth and passion.
Taking me to new heights beyond the ordinary.
Letting me see that my doubts are imaginary.
Walking with me even when I am out of fashion.

Now I cannot remember a time without you.
These first six years we've been together
Are just the beginning of our forever
Because finally I trust what I feel is true.

Never-Never Land

I stare out into this huge blue Sea,
And the waves, well, they just carry me.
My mind drifts so far away,
Because the Ocean is where I lay!
I’m off to never-never land once again,
So take my hand and let this journey begin!
I listen carefully to the Oceans roar,
The waves, well they just help me soar.
My mind relaxes with my day,
Because the Ocean is where I always lay!
I’m off to never-never land on a hunch for so much more,
So take my hand and let’s find new places we can both explore!
I can see blue water with big fluffy white rolls,
Waves, well they just capture my entire soul.
My mind just helpless with my day,
Well, it is the Ocean where I lay!
Off in never-never land I can always see,
A gigantic Ocean covering over me!
Far away in never-never land near the Ocean is where I always lay.
Lifeless in the sand is where I’ll always be.
So take my hand and be lifeless with me in the sand.
Together, just you and me on our journey to never-never land,
Just lifeless in the sand, together you and I and always we’ll be hand in hand!

GoodBye

So confused,
Not knowing what to do?
I love you so much,
But I love him too.

Most of the time;
All we ever do is fight,
I really don't have a clue,
On how to make it right?

I want to be with you,
But he is never off my mind,
I'm sorry that I am hurting you,
I'm sorry i'm that kind.

Why do i still love my Ex?
I ask myself everyday,
I have you now,
But I just want to hold him and say,

I miss you so much,
You are the love of my life,
I want to be with you forever,
I want to be your wife.

He would never hurt me,
Curse at me or lie,
So that is why I have to say,
I'm sorry and Good-Bye.

A Father With A Heart Divided

A Divided Heart... I know of a father who had a "divided heart." Within a few years, his family "fell apart." When his heart changed... I remember when. Here's when, I believe, it all began... He started to help others that were in need. Sharing their problems... his heart would "bleed." What started out with the "best of intentions." Giving others much of his focus and attention. Very little time he spent with his family at home. Many days and nights, his wife felt "all alone." "What happened to the one who "promised his love?" She'd ask for "time alone" ...and "he'd give her a shove." He began to look at others' kids as "his kids" too. Trying to be a "father to all" ... by the acts he would do. Neglecting his God-given duty as high priest of the house. He would confide to a "pretty lady" in a nice blouse. His family tried to warn him of the dangers ahead, His wife would cry each night she went to bed. HIs family did that for so many years, he held so dear. Each went their separte ways... as any love dissappeared. This heartbreaking story made the heavenly father sad. By the divided heart... of the one... many knew as "dad." May this be a challenge both to me and to you. That our heart remain loyal, committed and true! By Jim Pemberton

Longest summer of my life

Its been too long;
I NEED to feel your arms around me,
Your fingers tagled with mine,
My lips on yours,
Your hand in my hair.
I dont ever want to leave
Your cherished embrace;
Im so happy and complete
When Im with you
I feel so alive;
You make me forget everything
But you
For a few precious hours.
I miss those nights
I want them back
I miss you so much.

Who's In Control as you Fuss and Fight

 
 
As their anger built and they lost control,
    It was like something evil had possessed their soul.
The words they said burned like fire,
    Seeking to hurt the other was their main desire.
It didn’t matter who or what started the fight,
    The ole devil had you this very night.
He set the stage, he set you up,
     As you both spew his venom as you sip from his cup.
Once it gets started it’s so very hard to stop,
     Hate breeds hate such an unrewarding and pain filled crop.
As you reach the point of no return,
     The devil will laugh as you feel his burn.
He wants your soul that’s his only goal,
     One marriage gone to hell another success story for him another mark on his 
pole.
If you want your marriage to stay good and strong,
      Give the devil a kick in the pants and send him back to where he belongs.
And over all the best advice I can give,
     Seek the Lord and follow Him in your daily life and the way you live.

The Homecoming

The wind’s warmth gently breathes into my veins
As the road winds through a familiar passage.
Across the dusk canvas a welcoming aura emanates
From the city and streets I once called my own, 
This is my homecoming.

Smiles dawning on the mouths of friends in waiting
And mine, mine as well as I know the joys to come…
Where trails converge tales emerge, old new alike
Cheers to you you you, round round round.

Lives change change, love weight work
Lost gained gained lost, yet no one’s really changed.
The old refrain sang and sung, off key in harmony
Midnight wick sits searing, behind the window pane.

From the town I loved, the road winds away
My gaze now content on faces in the dashboard
Smiles dawning on the mouths of family waiting
And mine, mine as well as I know the joys to come…
This is my homecoming.

The birth of love

He looks at me with his hungry eyes studying my every motion
His hands slowly travel through the clouds of my body
His voice tinkles in my ear as I hear the depth of his soul whisper into mine
I tremble and moan as he proudly caresses the creeps he created
His tongue touches mine then circles my earlobe after sucking my neck
In an instant I feel his tongue make its way down his work of art and into a dream I enter
As I reach the climax of my soaked dream my only distress is waking up
He holds me between his arms and legs bringing me close to him as we become one
one body one energy one heart and one thought
The thought of living in this intense moment and uniting without hindrance as one soul
His lips gently touch mine sending drops of eroticism into me
I open my eyes only to see him still monitoring my body language
and the sensuous cycle continues...

Summer Memories

The sweet smell of pine
prickles my nose.
It reminds me of that summer
I met you under the stars.
Seems like only yesterday
your strong hand
grabbed mine so tenderly.
With grainy sand between our toes,
we walked along the moonlit beach.
The ocean waves lapped against
the shoreline we strolled.
As we gazed at the beautiful night sky,
the heavens twinkled and smiled.
Morning came as I woke up
in your arms.
Gently a breeze flowed in
through the open window.
On it was carried the scent
of a pine tree - 
the very tree that became memory's bliss.

The Decision

This is a big decision, 
That I need to make. 
Everyone says, 
That it is to soon. 
But I look at them, 
and laugh. 

I show them that, 
I am more confident, 
In the choices I make. 
But at night I think, 
Am I ready for this, 
Life changing decision? 

I think of my life, 
before I met you. 
I don't think I have felt, 
this much for anyone. 

So I ask myself again, 
Am I ready for you? 
AmI ready to trust, 
With all that I have? 
Am I ready to risk, 
My heart and my soul? 

I want to say yes, 
Because that is what my heart, 
is telling me to say. 
But I want to run away, 
Because my heart is not ready, 
For my mind is yelling at me. 

My heart is racing, 
I'm so confused. 
What should I do? 
I always let my heart, 
do the leading, 
But how can I trust, 
that my heart is in the right. 

When I see your smile, 
You heal my heart. 
You make me feel, 
like I did before, 
this thing called love, 
Took over my life.

Lack Of Sight

Lack of sight,
You should be her knight,
Out peddling wood,
Oh, if I could,
Take your place,
Sense, you have not a trace

I don't understand,
How anyone in this land
Could be so blind,
Takes the stupid kind,

I guess a chance for me,
To atone you see,
For I was once as dumb,
As you seem to have become.

Nanny hiring Career women

  I want the world, Paris, London and Toyko but I feel a tiny bit of worry that my kids 
will resent me. I also want the family, 3 kids and a white picket fence. A husband whose 
in love with me and the natural feeling of being a stay at home mother. But I know I have 
to draw the line somewhere in this dream of mines because I know how hectic a life of 
Journalism can be and I don't want to be a nanny hiring career women. I fear that my kids 
will be raised by women that they see more than their mother because her job becomes her 
life. I don't want to be a mother who can't spend dinner with her kids because she's 
flying across the world... but wait I love to travel. I want to get the undiscovered 
story, the truth right down to the metal. I want to uncover a mystery so deep that I will 
be forever famous. But I worry that while my heads are in the clouds of big corporations 
and high heels and suits that I will be missed. My husband will kiss another women to 
make up for his wife not spending enough time with him. I don't want to be a nanny hiring 
career women but sometimes I feel conflicted... Maybe I like power. It's always been my 
dream to work at the top. I want to be there for my baby's first steps, and their first 
date and even the small things like the plays they star in. I would hate to miss it 
because to tell you the truth even if they had only one line it would be special to me. 
Wait there it is my answer to everything... I can certainly do both but I will always 
know what's more important... My family.

Finally found that Freeway

I’m going … Where I’ve Never Been Before
I hope… I won’t get Lost, ‘til I Find Your Door
Feel like a Mail-Order Bride

Got the Radio on, Hearing Requests

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.

Lone Apple Tree

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

Our wedding day Beautiful and bliss When she said I do I couldn't wait to kiss My bride looked so lovely I could feel my heart Jumping with joy As our future starts Down by the river The photographer shoots My darling bride on a swing As a gracing swan overlooks Today is our day As we welcome families and guests My best mate the best man And our bridesmaids so blessed At the top table we sit With our parents we love Nervous speeches are said As I turned to my white dove Today's been the best day Of the whole of my live I stand here proud and tall To declare you my wife Our meal has finished As the band starts to play I take my wife's hand To the dance floor we display Should to shoulder Face to face Sharing kisses Our wedding embrace We are soon joined on the floor By our family and friends At our Highland Wedding Where the dancing never ends It's now well into the morning As we all retire My wife and I Share our marital desires In the morning we shall go On our honeymoon Three weeks of passion Will have me over the moon . http://www.thehighlanderspoems.com/love-7.php

Love Defined

You cannot see love
Like seeing sky above,
You cannot hear love
Like hearing bells ring,
You cannot smell love.
Like the scent of a rose.
You cannot touch love.
Like you handle a glove,
However, you can feel love.
In a warm glowing heart,
You can see it so deeply.
From a glance of ones eyes,
You can perceive true love.
From the sound of the words,
Loves fragrance may grow.
From a trail that you know,
Love is complete and scentless.
But never partial or senseless,
Love may be hidden by one.
It can be subjective or won.

Speak My Love

Speak to me, my love, of the dawn
With amber rays that grace the fields…
That our concealed dreams, be now revealed
Grace mine ears with sweet praise 
Of your honeyed lips…

Oh, speak of love
That adorns the lands,
Tenderly 
Take hold of mine hand ~
Flight of doves
Concede... as you take command

‘Til
The whispering winds stand still~
While the blue seas touch the once placid shores…
Of this mine heart, shan’t be bored 
As with rendered kiss our love’s fulfilled…

Come To The Lord

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord…  
All of the lands!
Come together in one voice…
  And clap your hands!

Serve the Lord with gladness.  
Come into his presence with singing!
Delight yourself in him.  
With praise and thanksgiving!

Know that the Lord is God.  
And he made us all!
We are his people.  His sheep. 
 Let’s answer his call!

As we enter his gates with thanks
 and his courts with praise…
Let’s honor and serve him
 all of our days!

The Lord is very good.  
His mercy is everlasting.
Let’s honor him today...  
In prayer and fasting!

His truth shall be known,
 throughout the generations!
It’s only in him where we
 can find our salvation…

The Lord is God… 
His grace has no limit.
Come and worship him now…  
In both body and spirit…

His love has no boundary.  
His grace is freely givin’.
Accept his gift of love... 
 Be cleansed and forgiven!

Musings Of You

The moon appeared whole that night,
at rest, deep within your eyes,
unsure am I of the heavens now,

‘though musings of you stay.


Our lips became acquainted once,
fervour was in abundance,   
the season’s phase unrecalled,

‘though musings of you stay.


Honeybee tended to timid rose,
I, in your snug embrace,
winter winds almost forgotten, 

‘though musings of you stay.


Joyous faces on a frozen lake,
turn sour with pencilled lines,
nor are you, my love, faultless,

‘though musings of you stay.

Happy New Year

Hear the ramblings as the count down now begin.
A few seconds later toasting with champagne or gin,
Pressings tender kisses upon loved ones lips.
Preparing for a new year with precious tips,
Yes, we all make a promise to stop something.

Nearer to our loved ones, our heart does sing.
Even the children at home, watch the ball drop.
Wearing pajamas celebrate, drinking milk or pop.

You and I my dear we kiss and hug for our love so.
Every year the same though we find a different glow.
Again, this year, we find ourselves growing old.
Realizing that our faith and love, worth more than gold

Unspoken

Unspoken words show from things I do.
Unspoken words not needed from me to you.

Friendship was the first I gave so dear.
Then kisses upon the neck so sincere,

Lips of ours that touched with tenderness,
A touch between us gave such openness.

Each day at first when we were apart,
Our love grew deeper within our heart.

Love is not given, earned from the start.
Enriched and appreciated as in art.

Together now we still spark a flame.
Our bond that we share has no shame.

Each night when our bodies lie still,
Our spirits rise with so much to fulfill.

Sometimes when we chat so serene,
Our souls combine, our minds convene.

Holding each other for hours in delight,
We are bound until first break of light.

Each new day more love and no fears.
I pray our love shall be stronger for years.

It's Time To Represent

I knew you before you were even thought of,
By your parents on mother earth.
Your attributes, your qualities, yes even your shortcomings,
I knew all before your miraculous birth.
I then set the plan in motion,
A chemistry between two recipients.
It was not long afterwards,
That your illustrious entrance was made evident.
You may not have had all the luxuries of the few,
I wanted your environment to be a little deviant.
I had a special group of people in mind,
That I wanted to be the recipients.
I already knew of the timid times,
When you wanted the acceptance of those that went.
At school, at work, and even at home,
But it would be I whom you would represent.
That same group of people, you took to your very heart,
You became a little more confident.
You became the spokesperson of a blessed few,
Not knowing that one day, you would represent.
Now you have finally realized your true calling,
For a people who are hesitant.
To be whom I have chosen them to be,
For it is also I whom they represent.
You are loved by a few and rejected by many,
Though your calling is still evident.
And now I see that you are ready and capable,
For it is now time that you “REPRESENT”

Right and Perfect

If you had Mr. or Mrs. Right,
You'd know your every wrong way.
If you had Mrs. or Mr. Perfect,
You would see your flaws everyday.
Not that she would compare you to her
And not that he would do the same,
But your imperfections are evident
In the presence of those without blame.
So if you have someone nearly perfect
Who is satisfied with you as is,
Be content to love who you have
And just to be hers or his.

We Stand Together

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

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

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

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

Here With You

The soft, subtle whisper of the beating of your heart,
The lazy circles your thumb traces on the back of my hand,
The gentle rise and fall of your chest as you breathe,
The way I fit so perfectly wrapped up in your arms,
The warmth of your breath on my forehead,
The way your breathing blows through the hair on top of my head,
The comfort that I feel as I lay my head on your chest,
The safety that I feel here wrapped up in your arms,
The way the sunlight dances across the room from between the shades,
The noise outside the window ushering in a new day,
The peace I feel at this very moment, 
Separate from the world around us,
That's all I need to convince me to stay here with you.

A Season of Love has Come…
Like a Tree lifts its limbs – Spread Your Arms
And Welcome this Freedom from…

A Season of Love – in Bloom…
Every Day, is like a Day in June
You Picked the Bride… I Picked the Groom
Not too Late… Nor Too Soon

… and its Fresh; Funny and Wonderful!
Its Work; Its Play… Its Worth It All!
It’s a Butterfly, Above Flowers
It’s a Heartbeat’s Ground-Breaking Power…

A Season of Love – did Bring…
The Thaw of, Slow-Moving Mountain-Streams
Your Kisses, Melted into My Spring…
Once Again – We Now, are Steam!

A Season of Love, has Sown…
… Seeds, We could not Bear – Alone
So Together, We have Grown…
A Season of Love… To Live On…

Silhouettes Captured

Animated in the night we fall prey to our love so sweet.
The ambiance is familiar for us both to be complete.
Flirty and sweet our love continues to grow more.
Guarded we share so many words that we adore.


Lightly we continue our lives in total faith and bliss.
Jealousy haunts us not we will listen not of this.
Magnetic love that attracts each other each day,
Memories of our past surround us in every way.


Privately we bond our love in style and gentle grace.
Openly we generate and show the faith we face.
Romantic things we do for each other through years.
Shadow our life and shows in each other’s eyes in tears.


Not of sadness, but joy and sharing of our love so strong,
Our silhouettes captured spiritually, without any wrong

Night - Nature

I Walked in the Woods, on a Moonlit path
As Fireflies gathered around to Dance
And Crickets and a Nightingale Chirped a Tune
As a Distant Wolf, Howls at the Moon

And a Glow-Eyed Owl, Territorially Asked Who-o-o- !
dares Invade and Interrupts Our Hullabaloo ?
and the Leaves on the Oaks, Rustled an Answer
across the Sky… and Wind Breezily Whispered…

… Must Be A Night Creature
Who Cannot Sleep
Must Have A Night-Nature
And Ventures Deep …
Into The Nightshade and Hollyhocks
Her Eyes, like Two Nimbus, Shimmery-Spots…

… Now, The Path lay close, to a Bubbling Stream
Which led to a Pool, of a Mirror-Sheen
Denizens of the Dark, Grouped Near the Obsidian-Ink
… in Hushed Agreement, as I Knelt To Drink…

… Must Be A Night Creature
She Drinks at Leisure
Must Have A Night-Nature
Look At Her Stature…
Intrepid-Instinct, Even Blasé- Imbued
Even in Silhouette- Shadows and Solitude…

… And, as I Stroll Back, the Way I Came
The Mysterious-Darkness Asked:  “Had I Ever Been Tame?...”
I Raised My Face, Replied, “Yes… Under God’s Hand…
… And as I Stepped into the Tent... added… “And That Of My Man's”…

… Must Be A Night Creature
Hunting Treasure
Must Have A Night-Nature
Hunting Pleasure…
… in The Measure of His Sweet Kissed-Reaction
In The Measure of My Own, Night-Predator Passion…

Asleep

Asleep as  his eyes closed in to a dream

Missing am i in his moments going by

Asleep as he lays not one sound as i sit at his side

Staring at his face of peaceful beauty

Does he know that i sit beside him as he lies asleep

Asleep as his hand near mine holds only still 

Should i move closer so he might fill 

Me

Asleep as he dreams of thee unknown quietly

Missing am i in his hours going by

Asleep as he lays not one movement as i memorize his eyes

Him

Asleep as i cant stand to sit so near to him

Asleep i want to be don't he see

That Asleep in his arms is were i dream awake to be

Him me

Asleep i just sit at his side to see him and wonder what he dreams

And wishing i keep to lay by his side and fall the same

Ode to Eve

in your warmth, woman, 
   is soft, soulful serenity,
      as you stoke the amber
         embers of my mortality;

triumphs I've  lost,  losses 
   I've gained, untold sufferings,
      but you soothe, you hush down
         all these hurt reminiscings,

as I grope, as I fumble about

The Keeper

I was washed ashore with Mountains looking over me and I could hear roaring Seas.
The sand covered me and my toes curled with sand dollars by the dozens.
I saw dolphins gaming and fish were everywhere, I even met their distant cousins.
The Sun was shining down on me and the Moon was jealous but the clouds gave way.

And I looked up to see the Stars shining and they told me it’s a most perfect day.
Salted lips and these palms fanned, I knew right then I was meant to be.
I stood alone at the shore and blue skies fled taking notice of little old me.
I was touched and moved balancing these visions I began to breathe.

I thought I was by myself, but I wasn’t, not this time.
Looking up I say leave me alone, be gone I’m on my own.
Looking down I am amazed at how truly this is so sublime.
You are the keeper of my secrets and I am of all the unknown.

Shining down upon me you are always standing right there,
Here I shall share myself with you and then I will begin to care.

Secret Lovers

my love for you is a secret
if I tell someone, I'm afraid I can't keep it
I've know you all my life
but you only told me you loved me twice
my feelings for you are so strong
it hurts so much
but I know what I feel is wrong
I wish I could chain up your feelings
in my heart I'll trap you
when I smell your scent
it freezes me like a statue
I don't want to be your friend
it just isn't fair 
your wife doesn't love you, I doubt she even cares
but she's the one you married
and I was a member in you wedding
so I'll continue to be your friend
and you can love me when your ready

I Wed Thee

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

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

The Rose Tattoo - For My Husband

To my one true love
I give you this gift
That is everlasting
That will remain 
On my body
As a testament of my devotion to you
Until my last breath

My heart is breaking because of my bitter regret
For I owed you this homage long ago
I just hope this long awaited tribute
Takes you to cloud nine
Blissfully causing your heart to sing 
For above the rose tattoo
The name of my heart's desire is displayed
An attestation of my love for you, my darling

Does my bum look big in this

“Does my bum look big in this”
Now, be careful what you say
Just a single wrong word 
Could spoil a lovely day

“No, my dear it’s lovely
Your looking pretty trim
I don’t know how you do it
You always look so slim”

I think I got away with it
That’s put her at her ease, 
She’s looking in the mirror now
Don’t look too closely, please!

Too late, she’s checking out her rear
Her bottom she’ll inspect
And if she isn’t happy 
I’ll get it in the neck

“I like this dress, I’ll take it”
“Thank god” for that, I say
Now that shopping’s over
It’ll be a smashing day

Hmm! I Know That Smell

A scent, so rare 
Of purity, fills the air passing
Through the slightly opened-window
Of my upper room 
Hmm! I know that smell, it’s not from 
The lone noble fir, outside, standing
Proud, with its fine fragrant foliage
Nor, from the sweet-scented creamy 
Fruits, of grandpa’s strawberry trees
I went near the window
And, I peeked childishly
Lo! I saw a fiery
Lips as red as the roses
Flutter, like a majestic butterfly
In a morning breeze 
There, in the garden, a woman 
So lovely, with a brown smooth skin
And long black hair, listens 
To the silent hymns, of Angels’ trumpet 
As, the bluish sky, in sight, watching 
The fairest of all creatures
While, the warbling birds nestling
On an oak tree, where once I tattooed
The symbol, of great love
Whispered to her, of my sudden peeking
She looked up, at me
Sheepishly, I waved my hand….
But, she threw me 
Her sweet morning grin
Now, I know why 
Envy lingers around the town 
It’s ‘cos of my priceless treasure
From among the many, she chose 
Me, to be the rightful owner, of her smile

Thee One Forever

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

'The Woman and The Wall...'

The Woman Stands By The Wall
… knowing No Harm Shall Pass Thru
It is Strong … Made of Stone and Tall
A Constructed, Marvel – True …

The Woman Places By The Wall …
… a Basket of Hopes and Dreams
She knows, No Creepy Creature Can Crawl
Past This Foundation, as Deep as the Seas …

And The Wall Reaches to Destinies Un-Shown
Long Distance, Soaring Sure and Straight
So, the Woman can Lean Upon
and Rest on This Journey So Great

The Woman Stays By The Wall
The Wall Blocks Out Horrible Views
And Screams and Things Too Evil To Call…
… She Never Wants To Go Over You …

The Woman Holds Onto The Wall
Admiring Its Fortitude, Its Texture
And Tho’ Her Hands May Be Small
She Will Attempt to Respectfully Measure

… This Reliable, Wonderful-Wall
Stands Built, for Her Pretty Protection
So, This Battle-Scarred-Wall, Will Not Fall…
… from Her Supporting, Adoring, Affection

For God, Took Away Her Prayer-Shawl                    1 Cor. 11: 5
as She Marched, Under Heavenly-Protocol
and Master-Builder, Chose This One Over Them All
to Be Her Outstanding, Warrior-Wall !

You Are

You are what makes me funny
when in moments I feel so down
You are what makes me bright
when there's a black cloud over town

You are what I am craving
when nothing soothes my hunger
You are what I am missing
when I start to wonder

You are what makes me smile
when the day has been too long
You are what my ears listen for
when I need a cheerful song

You are what makes me rise each morning
when sometimes I feel I can't go on
You are what makes me sleep at night
when the world has gone so wrong

You are what I love in life
You are what is the light of my life
You are what I need in life
You are what is my life

A Day at the Little Beach

Walking down the graveled path
For a day at the little beach;
We picked up ripened persimmons
And purple muscadines along the way.
Butterflies fluttered around my wife.
Blazes of color lie under the trees.
Thousands of diamonds danced on the lake
Around several ducks with their bottoms up.
We took our shoes off on the little beach
And splashed along the shoreline.
We picked up rocks and skipped the stones
Between the passing boats and waves
That pushed and pulled us in shallow water.
Soon, I had to search for more stones
And persimmons, and I found a winged horse,
Pewter, on a black stringed necklace.
I tied it around my son's light brown neck.
He ran through the water bare back
And swam with his mom in shallow parts.
After our lunch of found-treats we walked,
And played and threw rocks in the water again.
My son drew my face in the wet sand.
We sat in the grass, soaked in the sun
And enjoyed the laughter and fun.

Never Ask You For More

You've changed my life in every
way.
You've made me so happy.
Never have I been treated with
so much respect.
You treat me as though I am a queen
or a goddess.
I could never ask you for more.
You do anything and everything in the
world for me.

I sometimes wonder if I deserve
such a man.
And sometimes think you deserve
much better.
But you can't replace love with the snap
of a finger.
Every time I hurt you, it's like receiving
a punch in the stomach.
I love you more than anything
else.
I could never ask you for more.

I realize we have a bond you
and I.
A bond nobody could destroy.
I will never stop loving you.
I could never ask you for more.

My husband

We went and met your family
I have to say they're great
all the love I got from them
they welcome with no haste
I see how you've went without
no family what a waste
you have so much to share
she should be ashamed
to keep you from the one's you love
never would I take
I know just how much that they mean
her family is so fake
the time that we were married
to short I have to say
I dreamed of that very moment
on so many days
now it's she who has my lover
and has now taken my place
but she did not win this round
for me you can't replace.

Two Together but One Always

When I awake, you are on my mind.
As I live, you are in my heart.
You are the inspiration who gave me hope to begin again; to start afresh, anew-
knowing I can depend on you and your love.

Before I sleep, you engulf my mind, my thoughts, so I say I love you, good night 
and I'm glad you are near me, by my side to hug you; to hold you; to shower you 
with love.

You are a blessing; a gift; a source of joy;  you inspire me.
You have captured my hear; lifted my soul; and made me truly happy.
You are the missing part of my perfect whole, complimenting me in a most 
special and dynamic way.

Our relationship is the best component of my life; one that I hope and pray will 
last forever, bringing everlasting joy and peace and love to both of us.

My love for you, for us is as deep as deep can be; as strong as strong can be; 
and as lasting as eternity.

I hope I will be your last love, your first love, your all from now until then and 
forever.

I am yours as you desire now and forever and you are mine.
I will love you as you desire and as you love me-

And we will be US but yet ONE always!

Thank God For You

There's only one person
With whom I love
The greatest gift
From God above

Fate stepped in
And took my heart
My love for you
Was from the start

I've learned a lot
Along the way
The journey was hard
But I'm here to stay

No earthly matter
No possessions too
Will ever compare
The way I love you

Sacrifices I've made
Were all worthwhile
It's the love you give back
That makes my heart smile

And if I have to
Give up more
I'll do what it takes
For love to explore

Thank you God
For the greatest man I have known
Thank you fate
For the love he has shown

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.

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

My love for you will always be a love that lasts forever,
And my love for you these past few years is stronger now than ever.
For only in your loving arms I feel that I belong,and I've
wondered if deep inside your heart your love was just as strong.
My love for you has always burned
like a long eternal flame,
and it's warmth heats up my body
as I whisper out your name.
My love for you is deeper than the 
deepest ocean floor,
And as I close my eyes and think 
of you my heart still yearns for more.
My love for you is that one of a kind,
that everyone wants but is so hard 
to find, and another thing I want you to know
that my dying day I'll still love you so.....

Hurdles

One hurdle
Then another
But we have each other
so we remain together
our bond grows
Stronger
With every hurdle
Place upon us
They come and go
Some are hard

But either way
We pass them by
Wondering
What would have happened
If we let our love die

Weekend Lovely

Lovely is the morning's radiance
as I see tender secrets in her smile,
as I yawn away my dreaming,
holding on to sleep for just a short  while.

Lovely is the way she makes me
do good at  house chores, errands for the day,
as she hums the song I'm singing
while the kids and the cats are out at play.

Lovely si the nighttime silence
as she whispers gentle words  in my sleep
as again I drift to dreaming
of that morning's treasure that I shall keep.

Ah, weekend wonder, blissful wish,
a wishful bliss I so slowly cherish,
of home, laughter, music and rhyme,
when time is so idly biding its time.

You've Got

You've got the kind of kisses that give me chills and makes me hot at the same 
time.
The kind that give the butterflies in my tummy butterflies.
You've got the kind of love that makes fairy tales look like Hell.
The kind of love that makes me question how it was I for whom you fell.
You've got the kind of smile that could make Shakespeare speechless.
The kind that makes Cinderella wish she had this.
You've got the kind of love that words and music can't be put to.
The kind that makes me wonder how it is I ever got you.
You've got the kind of eyes that I get lost in and no map can save me.
The kind that make me wish forever was more than just a fantasy.
You've got the kind of kisses that leave me light headed and take my breath away.
The kind that make my heart beat at a new rate.
You've got the kind of love that leaves me begging time to freeze.
The kind that let's me know that without you, there is no me.
You've got the kind of love that leaves everyone jealous.
The kind that makes me smile, knowing I deserve less,
But you're the love that God gave to me.
You're the only love that can make me happy.

Endlessly

Take my hand and teach me
what I do not know - 

Touch my lips and kiss me,
I'll follow where you go.

Tell me that your heart is mine;
I'll give mine to you.

Show me of your loyalty,
I'll be forever true.

Warm my soul so tenderly

Help me believe I'm beautiful
even when we're old.

Love me, dear, not just for now,
but all eternity

Not a weekend, not a day,

You're The Best Husband

Today I died inside.
I saw you kiss her.
Don't try to deny.
You kissed her on the lips.
I saw a bit of fire in her eyes.
You love her?
When you look at her your eyes light up.
As if she has put stars in your eyes.
The stars that I once gave you.
The ones you lost so long ago.
I want her to leave you alone.
But I see this cannot happen.
She loves you.
As much or more then me.
You love her, I see it in your eyes.

As I laid awake last night,
I heard you say her name.
Crying it in your sleep.
I'm guessing she doesnt know about me.
What happens when she knows?
Will she leave you with a broken heart?
I dont mean to impose.
I wish I could speak to you. 
I wish I could tell you to go.
Why was I hurt?
Why I am this way?
I can think but do no such thing as move.

Go! I want to scream.
You love her!
Dont waste anymore of your life on me!
She thinks I am your sister.
That you're just taking care of me.
You're such a nice brother, she thinks.
But little does she know.
You're the best husband.

I loved you because
Your voice was the first thing I heard 
I loved you because 
You were the one I preferred

I loved you because 
You become her friend first then her father 
I loved you because 
You accept my life 
I loved you because you made me

Help Someone

Life is what you make of it.
You can be in the arena or in the sidelines to sit.

Help a fellow brother, let them know you care.
Bring hope for someone that is in despair.

Give the shirt off your back and give to the poor.
Smile at someone and make their spirits soar.

Start a conversation and share a thought.
Let someone know that friendship is what you brought.

Stay with someone awhile, that has a broken heart.
Help them mend the pieces that unknowingly, fell apart.

Bond with someone who wants life to end.
Stay and listen and be that loving friend.

Pray for the heavy laden, chained to their past.
Let them know, Christ died for them, and their sins he has cast.

Forgive others that have done you wrong.
Forgive yourself and your heart will be strong.

Enjoy life and find happiness in the little things.
Try to think positive, no matter what life brings

Don't lose our love

Father please stop yelling,
your voice booms all around.
We got so used to hearing it – 
we switch off to the sound.

Oh yes it’s true we hear you
but your voice is now a noise;
it’s not what you say – that we can hear,
just abusive, boystrous tones.

If you stop a while, take time to think -
And plan what you might say?
Maybe you’d talk instead of shout,
and then we’d respond and work things out.

But while your respond in dulcid tones,
whilst all we hear is put downs, moans.
While all you do is scream and yell,
you’ll push us away – so far until…

You’ll lose our love, and all respect,
we’ll grow up not knowing loving yet;
run to the first who shows interest,
repeat history, life of whole regret…

You’ll lose our love, so stop this now,
teach us to love , to talk things through.
We’re not so bad, you’ll see us now,
And as a unit we’ll learn to grow…and flourish…

Make you proud, you’ll see.
Make you understand your love of me,
Be still, be heard – in quiet reserve,
with dignity, respect, and glee…

be proud.

Your Flame

Your Flame
Our magic is eternal
But, unseen sometimes
Even when the darkness lingers
I see the rainbow on the horizon
I see the promise in the dream
That you bestow on me
I see the flames in your heart
That lights my soul
Forever an inferno
My love always ablaze
Until I breathe no more
Your solitary candle
Shining across the distance
Blissfully connecting the love 
That exists in our hearts
For each another
Like a fairytale
Living happily ever after
Until the end of time

Our love blossoms's into a sweet abyss of passion that ignites the fire of your 
soul
Who can understand this phenonmenon?

Thrusting waves hit the shores into the ecstasy of your desire
Binding ties unite us
Fruitful wombs are ties that bind
One family forever cemented in the beautiful Garden of matrimony

With This Kiss

Willingly,
I give 
This 
Heart;
To 
Have and hold.
Inscribed with
Special hopes and dreams, of my 
Kindred soul…
Inseparably,
Spliced within the 
Splendors gracing our lives


Comments:
Happily, I seal my pledge with this kiss
Assuredly, this love shall last eternally

Baby, you're a love song
you're a cigarette
after a real good meal

I'm so in love with you
I'm still turned upside down
Your'e the real deal

I won't attempt to tell them
they won't understand
how you are me

I wish they could feel
how special you make feel
after all this time

Ardent Lover's Reverie

In the continuing creeping in of tomorrows
     and constant oozing out of todays
          breathe moments so mellow, 
               so intimately yours and mine;

Spoken words for us are not anymore
     of any use in  our quiet  hours,
          we have no need for them for now,
               they have no place in our silence;

For in our silence we feel, we know,
     we understand, we question better,
          we speak no longer with utterances,
               rather with the warmth of our smile;

We forget the sun and the moon, 
     no need to open our eyes to see,
          for the flame of truth shall be our guide
               through caverns of doubt to the light of truth.

We grope for oneness of our hearts,
     through our hearts, within our hearts,
          for understanding in our ignorance,
               for strength in our weakness;

For sweet, sacred secrets smilingly 
     said and shared by us, just between us,
          secrets that are truly yours and mine
              in these moments that are truly ours, Love.

Fools

Try as I might, I can't win this fight. Again you take my hands, and oh how we dance.
Before They take what is mine, Kiss me one last time. Confusion reigns more than ever, We
can never be together.
