Keepsakes

His jazz collection fills the spare bedroom
Music man, you see, was his nom de plume

Our wedding album rests on the nightstand
A keepsake for my viewing on demand

The tarnished silver comb that stroked his hair
Lays on the dresser beside his easy chair

The carnation he wore on our wedding day
A keepsake preserved in a glass display

The love notes he sent are bound in a box
I read them again when life deals hard knocks

His old Volvo still sits in the driveway
In it he proposed to his fiancé 

I’ve clung to these treasures, lived in the past
Keepsakes from four years that went by too fast

Comfort they bring as he watches from above
John, my husband, the only man I’ve loved

I shall stand by and with you in all the
situations of our life.

and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.
As head of the family I shall do nothing

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

Passionate Love

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

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

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

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

The Wedding

Wedding Night in Raqqa

 

 

Cyclonic violet vision

 

Etheral and immortal

 

She swirls her sand baked torso.

 

Evoking the initial collision of primordial seed,

 

Swathed in gossamer purple veils,

 

Writhing to the stomping and clapping

 

Of jeweled ankles

 

And henna stained hands.

 

The tribes have united for my wedding to their son.

 

I ,foreign and naive, swoon to the power

 

Of ancient rhythm and verse,

 

Ripe, fertile gestures,

 

Pregnant with  throbbing pulses

 

And scattered beats of flailing arms,

 

Bleating tongues, spinning robes.

 

A cacophony of incessant chant rose from the dancing women,

 

Growning louder, feverish in their pleasure

 

And the nearness of release.

 

I join in the dancing.

 

They swath me in voiles and lead me to the center

 

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

VALENTINE TANGO IN HONEYMOON

                              Fly me to the moon
                              And let me play the stringed tunes,
                              The nod-nod head of a lover’s hoot
                              Let me dance among the stars
                              The tap-tap feet of a chivalrous heart... 

When my gaze beheld you-my spouse
In our heart true passions doused 
Draped like silk, a face with love soused
A new home in you I found.

I saw in you a beautiful wife
A flashy rectitude that brought new life,
That ravished me with sapphire eyes so fine
Fitted in your pearl socket, not of swine

You have triggered the jubilee of sunshine valentine
Now torch me with the kisses of your lip so bright
And swing me with the noontide delight I delight
Tangoing the tango of moonlight

I woo you with a honey tongue
Like silly doves we coo this carol song
In the sonority of your voice is compassion
Borne in a roomy heart for sacred fun. 
 
                              … Fly us to the (honey) moon
                              Play us the bedroom tunes
                              In a solitary nook,
                              Let’s twirl this ballet as David in jolly mood
                              And wreathe in celestial honeymoon cocoon.

Prince Agba.

Dedicated to those who are facing diverse marital squalls in their homes, may God 
mend your broken hearts and homes.

A Forever Promise

Anxiously the bachelor dreams 
Of a lifelong commitment
From the insidious bachelorlette, 
He proposed marriage tenderly 
Could I count on you ~
To forsake all others said she, 
He vows to do so forever, 
If she were to love, honor 
And be the best bride ever. 
They agree thus bonding 
In holy matrimony 
Husband and wife 
Were then introduced --Mr. and Mrs. 
After which family, guests 
And wedding party joined
Too, celebrate the start of 
their forever promise
Many blessings

The Union

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

He Left Her a White Rose

Its the morning after the night before
As i leave my new wife, whom i lovingly adore

My orders came through, overseas i head
With my band of brothers, not knowing what's ahead

    Married for days, whilst conflict takes him away
    Holding sheets where we slept, my memory bouquet

    At the bottom of our bed, there lies a virgin white rose
    With a note beneath i am in momentary froze

    I sit and stare as to what it might say
    Knowing this is the day my love flies away

My darling Tinks i leave this white rose for you
Its pristine appearance describes my darling so true

It symbolises you, so innocent so pure
With your love in my heart, i will return i assure

Think of the day, from these distant lands from beyond
For the morning after the night before, we will respond

    This virgin white rose, so bridal so pure
    You and its safety i will secure, for you to return for our future

    The day you come home, it shall lay on our bed
    And we will continue our lives, as you have always said

    I will go about my tomorrow's, thinking of you every day
    And prey that this virgin white rose, never turns deathly grey

If

If I held you close would you mind?

If I said to love me a minute longer would you have time?

If I said to kiss me would i feel that you care?

If I looked at you for hours would you mind that I stared?

If forever is what i wanted would you promise to be true?

If I told you would you believe me If I said I love you?

If all these things I ask of  you, you tell me you can do?

Then theres one more question that I have for you .....Is your answer I do?

I'M GLAD I FOUND YOU

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

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

This Aint Real

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

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

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

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

verse #3:
You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,
chorus 2x

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.

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

One Day

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

Witnessing Cloud 9’s silhouette
surround this glued enigma.

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

“Truly in love,
with
you.”

Emanating across cathedral uncertainty,
breaking its glass.

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

Creating justifiable fantasies
with attainable dreams.

It was amor, maintained.

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

In “Deep Sigh” Symphony: No. 9.

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

Because one day,
that will
be
me.

Schooldays Sweethearts

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

A Song of the Bride

For Christ my Savior, I will be waiting
And be still for my Most Beloved King; 
I shall hope for His glorious coming
And I'll be steadfast, for He's returning! 

All the day, all my thoughts are my Dearest
By night, in mind's the One in Highest
All that I've dreamed  for is the Holiest
And all I longed for's my Love, the Might'yest.

Then I remember His love that saved me
And His loving-kindness that's set me free
I remember His mercy that cleansed me
And His charge-less grace that made me holy.

One day shall be filled my heart's longing
And fulfillment, in thirst, God will bring
My joy shall be whole in everlasting
For in that day, I shall see my Dear King.

How my heart longs for You, my Beloved
And how I thirst after You, O our Head! 
How my soul pants for You, Most Exalted
And how I want You here, O Most Blessed! 

So come, O Jesus Christ, my King - quickly - 
For I am longing after You so deeply; 
Come, Almighty my Beloved - quickly - 
For after You, my Master, I'm thirsty!

A Wedding Vow

Corpulent cottagers clapping like clowns

Merry mad munchers of muffins and mirth
do-si-do dumbly, eaters of earth.
Champagne sugar shoved in a shoe

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!

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!

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

I've waited this day to come
For you and I become one
Every day that has passed
I wish that we could last
 
After days,months and years we build together
Here we are now to be forever

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

WHISKEY LULLABY

written 17th Sept 2013


             "WHISKEY LULLABY"
                          sung by Brad Paisley and Alason Krass

Just married, he loved his new wife,more than anyone saw
 a day after they where married, he got drafted off to war
Overjoyed to finally return home to his bride
 he walked in, to find she was in bed with another man
With just a slight second, his heart died
 pain overwhelmed his entire soul, he picked up a drink
And started to drink more every day, to try to forget
 as time passed, he drank himself to death, with a note "I'll love her till I die
they buried him beneath the willow, as she watched she filled her soul with regret 
 left to blame herself, she began to drink his memory away
As years passed she slowly drank her pain away
 they found her next to his grave, holding his picture as she passed away
They buried her beneath the willow, and they were together again
 and the angles sang a whisky lullaby
So when you find your one true love, be faithful and true
 for no amount of alcohol will mend a broken heart for whatever you do!
 

 I chose this song for my mother and my father both became alcoholics after they separated and my father passed away at the age of 42years old, my mother still lives but never stopped drinking she will be 58 years old she took off with his best friend from the age of 12yrs old

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

"The Hen-pecked Husband" By M. Taha Effendi (Light Poetry) The door bell rang yet again, and yonder heard the distinct voice, of my dear old wife, full of pain, drowned all my dreams of rejoice. then came the thundering slap, that landed on my cheek now red, and as I panicked out of my nap, I realized I had wet my bed.

The Bride

On the wedding
The Bishop co-ordinating
Called in the groom
Only awaiting the bride
Hymns going up in the air
Half hour passed
And yet she is unarrived
"What is delaying you?"
The groom yelled at the Bishop
"Your bride isn't here"
With a dimple from the groom's cheek
Loke side way at his bride
"He has long arrived
I am gay"

' 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 …

My Love For you Will Never Wax Cold

GentleMan I remain blind to the world but you. The Lily among Thorns and the perfect work of a craftsman's hand. Giving usefulness to my Banquet Hall and injecting Life into my green Vineyard. Lady Oh dear! My darling Gentle Lion. Radiant and ruddy, unique as a Gazelle. A mound of Wheat encircled by Lilies. More attracting than Rods of Gold set with Chrysolite. Yet, proven to be the Noblest of all Men and still glued to me like two halves of a Pomegranate. GentleMan My Precious among Maidens, your royal tapesty, which its tresses, hold Kings in captivity. Even the Towers of Damascus filled with Pillars of Marble are not as prestigious as the comfort of our bed which pours out the freshness and purity of the countryside and always placing the Banner of Love over me. Lady You are my much needed raisin when I am weak, My satisfaction and my Pride, like the house of cedars and like Polished Ivory decorated with Sapphires. More glorified than the woods of Lebanon, perfumed with myrrh and incense. Where more would my Heart go? When it is locked in the Cage of Your Love. GentleMan My Angel! Please don't speak of the fragrance of a perfume because not even the Saffron nor the Calamus, nor the Cinnamon or other incense Trees, together can match the Lattice nature of your breath. Lady My Heart beat! Is it the Aloes and mandrakes? Or the finest spices from Asia? Is it sweet Herbs from the Merchant of the East? Together when combined to the sparkles of your Robe are like little foxes standing near a Tiger. Gentleman Your beauty adds quality to earrings of Diamond. It is washed in Milk and Mounted like Jewels, spreads like columns of Smoke and like a rounded Goblet that never lacks blended wine. What more am I searching for? When your Lips have the taste of every delicacy renewing our bond like cool-chilling Soda keeping us steadfast in an unshakable Anchor because My Love for you will never Wax cold.

Flaming Reflection : " Bon Appetite "

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


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

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

In front of a priest I stood with my beau.
“Over time”, he hailed;
“The secret will be unveiled”,
“Of a truly happy marriage”; but I still don’t know.

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 Bride

On the wedding
The Bishop co-ordinating
Called in the groom
Only awaiting the bride
Hymns going up in the air
Half hour passed
And yet she is unarrived
"What is delaying you?"
The groom yelled at the Bishop
"Your bride isn't here"
With a dimple from the groom's cheek
Loke side way at his bride
"He has long arrived
I am gay"

Mrs Hemorrhoid

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

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

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

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

She's got a plan
just moved to Florida
one week in the hole
a forced proposal...

"yeah...
uh...
maybe if I get a job with insurance;
we'll get married...
then you'll have insurance too!"

the spider web is officially constructed
"Charlotte's web"

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

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

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.

in all your sweet
kisses and hugs, you
have shown me
your love is my treasure
and we can stand strong
through any weather
as turtle doves,
we fly together forever
when I hold your hand

A Forever Promise

Anxiously the bachelor dreams 
Of a lifelong commitment
From the insidious bachelorlette, 
He proposed marriage tenderly 
Could I count on you ~
To forsake all others said she, 
He vows to do so forever, 
If she were to love, honor 
And be the best bride ever. 
They agree thus bonding 
In holy matrimony 
Husband and wife 
Were then introduced --Mr. and Mrs. 
After which family, guests 
And wedding party joined
Too, celebrate the start of 
their forever promise
Many blessings

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.

You Are the One

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Sugar and Honey

Sugar and Honey ©2013

Who could have known those Men in Black would be the groomsmen to serve as the royal escort for a date where time stood still. Minutes turn to hours turn to days the blaze of passion brighter than orange and yellow sun rays. Never again alone the search that was so cold now inflamed with life—passion roaming nomadically through radio waves with 37 wishes of “I love you”. Wishes that tell of a spell never to be broken cause 37 is prime impossible to divide.

From Lookout Point the view is endless. Hues of purple and red shimmer as clouds float by carefree smiling cause they know a secret we've yet to spy with our naked eye. The island sun winking as it sets daring us to never forget this very moment. This very moment of 2-wheel love with trails of cookies and cream a dream come true with me and you and you and me together as we grow stronger in self and each another.

Romancing moon perched high can’t wait to swoon cocoon enticing day dreams to transform into night dreams 2-stepping to the grove of Sam Bostic…”tell me your zodiac sign?” It don’t matter love cause I’m yours and you’re mine. Together we wander the beach of life with no real destination ahead but to hold your hand counting grains of sand knowing each one is a new chance to thank God for aligning you in just the right place at just the right time for me to see you not with my eyes but with my heart.

Nothing could tear us apart not even Black Ops screaming and fighting for main stage cause backstage forehead kisses are riches to please and tease all in one moment that will last an eternity.Sugar and honey intertwined a destiny so divine.Do we dare take this chance? A five letter word blurred with an infinite number of possibilities but only one solution with today as the finale for you and me.This chance we take resonates as the heavens open and whisper with the softest of voices for all to hear... 

Shai and Alvin “your joy is complete…you are like-minded…
with one love in spirit…you are of one mind.” 


Be kind to one another and keep today’s love in your heart forever.

Crazy in love

Another day, another beginning,
I begin the morning chanting,
Hoping that repeating my wish,
It would come true.
 
I sit at the sun-bathed breakfast table,
Remembering the times you sat across with a grumble.
The other times when you would put yours arms around me,
As I set the morning spread.
 
I walk into our memories-filled bedroom,
I remember as I put on your favourite perfume,
The first time you carried me across the threshold,
We were so in love, the newly-wed couple.
 
But I also remember the shadowed memories,
When you would hit me disregarding my pleas.
The times you would turn away in bed,
Refusing to speak to me, pretending to be a statue.
 
I dress in your favourite colours,
And take in a bit of one of your liqueurs.
Hoping it will give me the strength I need,
To face you, my husband, my weakness, the love of my life.
 
I walk out, closing the door behind me,
Wondering in what mood will you be,
I think of the times you'd say you're sorry,
The times you'd say you love me.
 
Times when you'd reach out and touch my cheek,
You'd say you miss me, that you're growing weak.
You want to come back home,
You'd say you're ready that you're okay.
 
I feel my eyes tear up as I think of the worse,
Times when you'd scream yourself hoarse,
When you'd pull my hair and tell me to get out,
Ending up in me running out crying.
 
Yet I come back every day,
For the better days I pray.
Sometimes we would sit staring into each others eyes,
Other times you would act like you don't know me.
 
But I cant help coming back to you,
Returning to the pain no matter what you do.
Sometimes I'm sure this is true love,
Other times i hate you for what you've done to me.
 
On some bad days I swear I'm never coming back,
The days when you hit me blue and black.
On good days I swear I'll never leave you,
The days you whisper sweet things and hold me tight.
 
Nevertheless i come every day,
Hoping everything will soon be okay.
The nurses stare in wonder, they don't understand,
This mad love in the psychiatric ward.

Love's undeniable journey

All ups n' downs come with
Fortune n' price, but together
We will shatter a mountain of
Rock.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard

Marriage in a nut shell

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

The Ice Swan Lands

The Bride under the left wing; The groom under the right
The Ice Swan , landing on the lake in the Early Morning Night

Her feathers , intricately patterned in a Moment of LOVE Forever the thinnest chisel
Curves her neck,  to the kiss of her beak upon the LOVING Bride and Groom

The Lily pads  need a circumference scratchier to be polished ; For Love’s Landing
The cold and numbness from the freezers melts from me; with their happy Smiling 
Hearts

After the “I DO’s”  They each thank me for my thirty hours of an ice block work of art
Thank-YOU and may YOUR Life Together be Forever ( I also made this Swan in an

My heart needs you...

                my love grows in.


My soul needs you...

           within my darkest moment
                  you illuminate love.


My body needs you...
         your soft caress
             you tenderly kiss away
                   the outside world.

I need you...

              my reason to be
                   only you make me whole.

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!

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

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

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.

Wedding bells

Wedding bells isn't a big pretty dress or handsome tucks. 

Wedding bells isn't a big church or ball room. And last but 

least, many think it's about family and friends. A wedding is 

mirage, it's love between two. It's a bind many love to let 

pass by.  It's a connection two feel. A moment for both to be 

happy. It's a wedding, true love shall combine. It's a moment 

no-one can break. It's a smile hurting your jaw. Causing your 

heart to truly skip a beat. It's feeling your love in the air.  

Hearing the music in the ocean.  It's letting love make the 

clouds. Wedding bells is saying, I do for life. It's remembering 

your vows.  Holding each others hands and remembering 

sweet moments.  Not letting go for eternity. Giving the long 

lasting kiss. A kiss to remember for life. A true love kiss under 

wedding bells. Wedding bells that brought two humans into 

one. Into one wedding bell.........

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.

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.

Rose Petals

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

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

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

Falling…Falling….falling.


Rose petals are falling.

As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

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

Choices

A bond is tied, a new liaison is made
N ovel experiences are satisfying, but the price is paid
G one are the days, when the dinner was just laid.
E very moment is work, and stress is high
L onely labor at toil, she lets out many a sigh
I help out not at all, and she can’t understand why?
N ow I know I am a fool and inconsiderate alike.

White Lace Memories

The lady waited in this place
With heart of pure intention
Remembering another face
Too long ago to mention

Lingering on this point in time
She danced with him once more
For all the memories sublime
That's what she came here for

They'd held each other oh so close
Until the night grew pale
He'd given her a single rose
She'd lifted up her veil

In memory she makes sure of 
Not slipping down too far
What's the point ,for pure love
Has put you where you are

And so she thinks about that girl
Who beamed like a sunray
When her darling took her for a whirl
Back on her wedding day

Bells and Cries

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

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

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

War Of The Sex'es




War of the sex'es 
(Gram’s advice to newlyweds)

Shame on all the “Momma’s boys”
Wanting to have the upper hand
So I am asking all my sisters
To arise and take a stand.
Their mothers all have
Spoiled them by granting
Every whim
From ironing their socks
To giving their hair 
A monthly trim

So what's a bride to do
To change their attitude?
Just say "forget it pal"
Whenever they’re "in the mood"
Then we'll see how quickly
They will pick up a mop or broom
And wipe the floor in no time
 Chasing you around the room

Boys…it doesn't take much effort
To give her confidence a boost
It takes TWO to make a marriage
Only ONE to rule the roost!
Would you rather be a King
In your castle all alone
Or sharing power with your Queen
BOTH ruling from the throne!

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.

Vows of Forever

I never thought I'd fall in love
Or find the one that I've been dreaming of
But here you are, you've come into my life
You are everything in the world to me
You are my days and you are my nights
I wish I knew what I did to deserve you
There's no one on this earth that I'd put above you
You are the one that I love dearly
I know that honestly and say it so clearly
I want you with me for the rest of my life
I want us to be husband and wife
Together we'll share all of our hopes and dreams
Being with you is what happiness means
Sweetheart I love you now and forever
Our hearts as one, we belong together

I can’t wait to have a love match

With you in a love nest 

Surrounded by love-lies-bleeding

Sitting on the love seat 

Where we hold a love knot together

And with love beads around your neck

After which we’ll travel down to Love-land 

Where we will be joined in a love-in

Our hands clinging together creating a tune,

Just Because I said I Do

The nagging about little things
To the complaining about you need socks
Never wanting to do a thing I ask
Just because I said I do 

I love when I come home to a mess
Clothes here, Socks there, plates in the living room 
Just  for once pick up one thing 
You only do what you want 

I love you with my heart
But just because I said I do 
You need to help to 
Its the two of us not only one

From A Husband To His Wife

It's been seven years since i said "I Do" and times got hard but we got through them because I have you. I miss the partying and clubbing, but I love this kissing and hugging. Being in a relationship, you must be ready to commit to the loving, fussing and fighting and the long nights. I gave up these things because I wanted the best for us. I wanted you to know that I was ready for your loving, caring and trust. Years have past and I'm glad we made this commitment because you are the best thing in my life and I'm glad to call you my wife.

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.

Happy Anniversary

Three years to the day have come and gone,
Since the day we said “I Do”;
But no matter how much time has passed,
I’m glad it was shared with you.

We both have had our struggles,
And have had our ups and downs;
Sun filled days and rainy nights,
Our share of smiles and frowns;

But at the end of every passing day,
I’m glad to come home to;
The one that holds my love filled heart,
And loves me through and through…

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.

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!

 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.

Let's Fly

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Live In My Heart

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

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

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

White Trash Wedding

Shaving cream covers up the truck missing a left side window
Backyard lawn is freshly mowed folding chairs assembled
Trailer has been freshly scrubbed the scent of pine still lingers
Ready for the wedding day of Bubba James and Ginger

They’ve known each other all their lives even quit school together
Rumored that somehow their kin but that has yet been founded
Dated off and on for years come Spring a new arrival
Now she’s knocked up dressed in white, God help the child’s survival

The crowd has gathered to celebrate the union of this couple
Indeed a sight to for all to see two hands placed on the bible
Bubba James half drunk with shame with Ginger’s delicate condition
Say I do, a prayer is prayed, the party soon commences

Will their life bring happy times or a road of pure destruction
Pretty soon the child will come and test their own survival
Only God and fate can answer this too soon to draw conclusions
Just hope and pray for it’s too late to stop this white trash union
 

**This is not intended to offend anyone...just got an inspiration

The Essence of Flesh...

Flesh has a funny way of keeping two people entwined;
It imitates two people, or one person,
Tells one’s secrets, 
But still keeps them safe in the layers,
Layers of flesh like layers of me.

The first layer is soft, golden, and touchable.
So touch me,
Feel the contours of my skin,
Stroke me because you need to,
Because I need you to,
Because the being of your own flesh wants you to.

Layer two takes everything in,
Inhales and exhales systematically,
But breathless in your vigor, catches with your every move,
And sighs and moves as your skin brushes mine,
So thrust and lust so sweet and soft so skin itself might shed its tears.

Third is rooted, thick, and strong,
To protect a frail body like mine from the strength of yours,
But fluid enough to dance and bend,
So long as you’re the one next to me as my partner.

So strange and tenacious is the changing flesh,
Often setting free tiny beads that dabble along and drip from my skin,
So heated, the droplet beads of you and I join
As they run along our legs and down onto the soft sheets,
Releasing the warmth so to cool us.

So then so smooth the flesh becomes,
Fiery inside but so cool to touch,
If touch comes so gently it barely feels,
So sensual and slow, one could experience the weight of a light wind,
While face to face our lips will meet, our legs merge,
Our bodies fall into one another’s.

And it is this very essence of flesh,
This imitation of character, that will tell you what you need to know,
The ease and readiness with which yours will happily enter mine,
That makes us one.

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.

Just for you

Many may say this, 
But I live this. 
When I have your kiss, 
Nothing is amiss. 

My heart warms up when I hear your call, 
When you say my name, 
You make me fall, 
Even deeper I can proclaim. 

When you touch me, 
Your hand on my skin, 
It's where I want to be, 
You make my head spin. 

When your away, 
My heart hurts from our parting, 
I need you to stay, 
To stop it from aching. 

As easy as it is to admit my love, 
The fear for hurt overcomes.

Please stay and learn slow
How much love I have to show.

The Day of Infamy

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

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

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

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

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


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

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.

What Will Make Her Secure

What Will Make Her Secure?

The tears that have become her nightly doze of Sleep
Her antidote is a husband who CARES
The heavy burdens she carries alone make her Weep
Her supporting hand is a husband who is FAIR

The painful worries of infidelity begets the future to appear bleak
Her balm is a husband who exudes TRUST
The unconditional love unappreciated with a blow on the cheek
Her true worth is a husband whose character does NOT DISGUST

The absence of affection's blazing flames
Her yearning is a husband who sweeps her of her FEET
The verbal abuse that makes her spirit to feel lame
Her healing is a husband whose words are SWEET

The wishing of a family unit as a lone mother
Her bliss is a husband who never quit HOME
The constant hurt of second place to another
Her mind's comfort is a husband who does NOT ROAM

The burning desire to be admired like a Queen
Her thirst's quench is a husband who steps up as KING
The broken promises, that she has always seen
Her security now is a husband who upholds the vows of his wedding RING

My wedding vows

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

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.

We were married at the chapel, thirty years ago.

A Circle of Promises

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

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.

MY DEEPEST PROMISE

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

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.

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.

ENDURE SONG

Forty-five years we've hang
Our smile in a perfect
Union of unchangingly joy
On our face. Money was good and happiness melted in.

Seeing the four flamed seasons
Became thinner, and thinner
And no longer, in July, near
The snowflakes, we don't ask to ourselves
where might be for the firewood's sun
If there will be a return.

For all these years, the utters moonlight
Has shone the same thing over and over, everywhere
Like a principle to be alive. And we believe it.
We really believe it 
That's what we got.

Across the rocky sky, like the rain
In a spangled dawn, steps have not been easier
Through the flowering bees; I don't know why:
But the pleasure has been 
Good enough to grow almost crazy among them?

We know there can't be a come back
To that unwelcome past, stalking by the shores sea
After a journey of half-century
Of green love and trust.

Let us enter boldly to our remember,
Crossing the peak along the sweet
Joy and sorrow. Find it a parting promise's
Love that we could never
Be tired as far as our eyes
Can see one another
And who will never abandon
This bloomy age.

As, adult world and heaven,
The barefoot is there--
And at noon, we know we are still
Rowdy as a friend in a toll mountain!

I Want to be Your Bride

I want to be your bride
No beating around the bush

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

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

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

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

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

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

Crystallized Diamonds Heir

Crystallized diamonds, heir,
soothingly embezzled, and coils, 
the heart, 
deeply within your own depth, 
my eyes gaze,  
to be tranquilized,
in burning flame, 
which soars aloud, 
faithfully to become,
its heir of resistance, 
among yours, 
to one day,
Carrie the importance,
of your last name, 
as husband and wife, 
because your kiss, is 
On my list, when I turn,
Out the lights, 
like crystallized;

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.

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.

A Bride's Heartfelt Declaration

I have waited for you forever, it seems
But I always knew you would come.
I have seen your face in a million sweet dreams
My husband, my Lover, my Chum.

I have chosen to walk your path with you;
To always stay right by your side.
I promised God that, when I said, "I do"
As your loving and loyal Bride.

I am not afraid to tackle this life
As long as we walk here, as one.
I am so very proud to be your Wife

My Beloved (Part I)

                      He who finds a wife has found a good thing.  This is why I came forth 
to meet you, diligently to seek your face, and now I have found you- and my heart 
is still rejoicing.  I will rejoice with you, my wife.  I have remembered the covenant 
of our God, and because of you I have found favor in His eyes to drink waters, 
fresh waters, out of my own cistern, out of my own well, and my fountain shall be 
blessed.  I will be ravished with your love always.  I will lie down with you only and 
share the warmth of your body, for you are virtuous.  You are my crown.  I will have 
joy in you all the days of my life.  So, love me and know me as I know and love 
you.
	Your name is like an expensive perfume that is poured forth, like the 
fragrance upon your garments to delight my soul.  As i gaze upon your figure, I 
see that you are perfect and unique.  How beautiful you are, fairest among 
women; majestic as the troops with banners, there is no flaw in you.  Only you 
are pleasant to me, my love, pleasing with all your delights.  Behind the veil and 
the locks of your hair, you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes.  
They overwhelm me, the eyes of a dove, beautiful like the pools of Heshbon, and 
your nose is as the tower of Lebanon that looks toward Damascus.  Your cheeks 
are like rows of rubies and beds of sweet flowers and spices.  Your lips are like 
scarlet ribbons dripping sweet smelling myrrh.  They drip like the honeycomb, so 
kiss my body softly with the kisses of your mouth, for your love is better than 
wine.

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."

PARDNERS ON THE TRAIL

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

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

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

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

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

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

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"

(He said) I love you

She sits alone as the sun goes down
Like she does almost every night
Knowing he'll come home drunk again
And start another fight

She was so young when she met him
Just sixteen years and a day
She hated her life on the farm
And he promised to take her away

How could she know he was lying
Just feeding her a line
She'd never had any love at home
And his, "I love you" sounded so fine

The sun shone on their wedding day
She was a happy girl
But, too soon the storm clouds gathered
And totally ruined her world

She tried so hard for three long years
Answering to his beck and call
Then one day she packed her bags
An walked away from it all

She knew her love for him had died
She was taking his abuse no more
After writing a note saying, "GO TO HELL"
She walked for the last time, out the door

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today


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

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

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

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

Marriages

Marriages are for when the husbands and the wives are determined to stay together for what
will be the rest of their lives. These people have been married to each other since they
day the men and the women met through their relatives or old friends from either high
school or college. It seems that when a man and a woman have read their vows to each
other, they don't ever break. And once the men and the women are married to each other,
there's no more going to bars, no more going to any of those dating websites, and no more
enjoying the bachelor/bachelorette life, ever. Ones who commit infidelity will allow the
marriage to have ended in a divorce. Marriages also mean that these two people mustn't
cheat on each other with other men/women, even if he/she is as attractive as the current
husband/current wife is. Sometimes most marriages will last at least four months, but some
of them will have lasted for more that sixty to eighty years. The children will have been
born after these two people (a man and a woman) have been married to each other,
especially when they're planning on starting an actual family. Why, this is starting to
look like an episode of "The Newlywed Game" hosted by Robert "Bobby" Eubanks, Carnie
Wilson, and Sherri Sheppard. Those marriages are not just a unity of a man and a woman,
marriages are a unity of same-sex couples (two men and/or two women), especially when
they're about adopt some children of all foreign countries, including Haiti or China. But
even if all married couples have to deal with financial situations, monthly bills, the
arguments, or whatever, these two people must know that they still love each other and
must always be supportive of what their plans for the future are. And no matter the
struggle or other guys and/or women that will have interfered in their marriages that day
in and day out, all married couples must tell the others that their happily married and to
have spared them the embarrassment in the near future. And if these marriages were to last
until the end of time, that would be great for all married couples. Newlyweds, too.

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.

The lovers soul

In you i see me
Its the sparks that bridge the gap
I feel i know you already
Though we've not long met

I feel the material melt away
As our souls resonate
To have found you feels like a lifes goal
I just know your my souls mate

I wasn't looking for love
I found you through gods grace
Yet somehow it feels like we've just met
At an arranged time and place

Though your here with me now
Who knows how long you've got there
Lets throw ourselves in to life
And fully embrace the time that we'll share.

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.

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.

Commitment

Being in a relationship is sometimes hard because you have to make changes that benefit you both. Your friends want you to go out every day and night but your partner wants to be wrapped in your arms tight. Before you commit to a relationship you have to be ready to give up somethings you love; whether its clubbing, drinking or smoking. You will realize that once you stick to your commitment the things you gave up no longer matter because the love you have for one another gets stronger and stronger.

Made For One Another

We were made to see eye to eye
We were made to walk hand in hand
We were made to stand side by side
We were made to be woman and man
Here on earth under Heaven above
With two minds we both agree
With two hearts we have one love
And as one body we shall be
In the union of our covenant
As we grow as one forever
May God's will for us be evident
As we live and learn together
Let us dwell in pleasant unity
Clinging to God and each other
And his favor will join you and me

Behind the Scenes

Give me a moment, just one more in time.
I'll give you a love dear, I'll make it divine.
Yet I have some problems, like you'd never believe.
Stand around long enough, and maybe you'll see...
All of these things that are wrong with me.
Right now you say you love me, I doubt that it's true.
People like me just don't deserve people like you.
I know what you're thinking, how strange I must seem...
To someone that doesn't live in the same world as me.
Maybe you're different, you might stick around.
But wht take my chances, when I'd much rather drown?
Then you call me selfish, for this joke about my life...
Yet you know nothing of the pressure of being a girlfriend,
with no intentions of ever becoming anybodys wife.
That's quite enough though, no more about me.
I would gladly become what you asked me to be.
If you promise to love me, forever and always...
If your actions prove to me something I never knew...
I will some day become yours in eternity.

The scene of Guilt

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

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

Days later....

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

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

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

Dance

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.

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.

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.

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.

Almost Guilty

Occasionally I cry,
Overwhelming joy, 
Sadness is deprived
Seems Surreal
I found the real deal,
I feel almost guilty
Like it's a steal
Must have been a saint in a past life,
I'll soon be lucky enough to be his wife

Thoughts Upon My Bed

The yearning of my soul became the thoughts upon my bed;  
The desire of my heart began to dance within my head,  
As I was opened up by God; He took out my flesh and bone,  
And when He closed me up again, for my inwards I did groan.  
The one that I envisioned, He then began to make  
From my dream and yearning with my inwards He did take  
In the still of the night; For my groanings I got peace  
When the morning light beckoned sweet sleep to cease.  
I saw my heart's desire and the one I hoped to wed  
Hand in hand with God, but not a word from me was said,  
Until He brought her by my side, and He brought back to mind  
The thoughts upon my bed; then I opened up to find  
That she is now the one for me, a crown of glory for my life;  
God will give to me His favor as I take her as my wife.    
She shall be my only woman, much more than my helpmeet,
And I shall cleave to her alone and once again be made complete.

Love at Breakfast

One beautiful mourning
   wine for breakfast, I knew
I never wanted to eat again
   If not to eat with you

So let the romance begin
   Your love I want to win
I want my life to be with you
   I want you for my wife

In future strides 
   I won't ever deny it
   I need you by my side
My soul takes flight with you

Setting up House

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As long as you're loving me
Treat you like my treasure piece worth more than gold
For a lifetime our love will never grow fold
Give you all the love and respect youdeserve
For I am your husband, I will serve
Love you until i give my last grasp
Communicate our love for each other
And don't try to mask it
Build a fortress for our love and our love only
I promise never to leave you lonely
Nothing will ever come between us again
For that would be a sin
I'm giving you my everything
With all the joy and happiness it can and will bring
I vow my undernying love to you

My son Mike

I popped on to myspace
And what did I see
Mike and his girlfriend
Had gotten married

I knew she was pregnant
And he will soon deploy
Iraq is where he'll be
When finding out if it's girl or boy

A beautiful young lady
A wife, and soon to be a mom
I wish they weren't so far away
So I could help her a long

My son is a man of strength
He fights for us every day
May the "two" loves of his life
Guide him back home to stay

...and I'm gonna kick your butt if you don't call me after the honeymoon!

I love you all...

SAFE LOVE

you came along like an angel of light
making everything alright
you taught me how to smile again
as I would hold your hand

as love embraces me so tight
do you ever wonder if this is right?
me and you, you and me, all to happy
for those to see

but still I fear hurt may come
and then you will leave me all alone
again I will hurt everyday
wiping the tears of pain away

I fear this is all in my head you see
trying its hardest, poisoning me
together we stand united and strong
for our love can never come undone.

Thank You

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Beloved (Part II)

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

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.

The broken fairytale

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

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

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!

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

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.

My Beloved (Part III)

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

The Hung Jury

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

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.

I PROMISE

                                                      I PROMISE

I promise from this day forward,
To always be as open with you as you are with me.
I promise to always consider your feelings,
As you consider mine.
I promise to make your welfare my first concern,
Just as you make mine yours;
And I promise to love and honor you,
For as long as you will love and honor me.

Please do not ask me to be obedient,
For I am not your servant.
Do not ask me to be perfect,
For I am only human;
And do not ask me to be what you think I should be,
For I am not you, and can never be.

I can only be what God has made me,
A separate personality,
And essentially different from you in every way.
I have different ideas and different ways from you.
That does not make me wrong,
Just different.
Accept me, love me, honor me,
And I will reply in kind.

                                                            Judy Ball

People often wonder what went wrong in a marriage.  
The answer is simple.
They forgot to accept each other as individuals and started thinking of each other as mere extensions of themselves.
They get angry and resentful because their mate, their "other half" can't read their mind or does not agree with everything they say or do.
They lose respect for each other as individuals with feelings of their own.
Remember:
Marriage is like a bank account. If you don't put anything into it you can't take anything out.

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.

Allen's Betrothal to Princess

Allen and his to-be-bride
He brings her home with joy and pride
For his mother she is a new daughter
For her father he is a new son 
To each other it is love ever after
As two lives become one.

In Christ you will be one
Come rain, storm or sun
Though we would wish you fair skies each everyday
Life can sometimes surprise or dismay
Remember then you’re a cord tied with three strands
A cord that will not be broken and trials withstand.

Cherish each other like now always and forever
Make her your Princess each day and no lesser
Honor your king, as the Good Word says and that’s better
As the threads of your lives weave beauty together
Cherish each other like now always and forever.

And We Twain

And we twain shall become one flesh
When our hearts are joined in True Divine Love.
Meeting physically is only a temporary act of co-existence.
We can only become truly one-
When we have met with our minds.  And
when we join to each other in light of God's true wisdom and inspiration;
We can tunnel through any obstacles or mountains, 
And overcome to be One.

And we twain shall become one flesh
To live according to God's ordinance
In a state of holy matrimony.

And we twain shall become one flesh
To live, to grow, to achieve, to succeed, to reach heights unconceivable to the 
mind of mere human rationale.

And we twain shall become one flesh
To teach others and show forth to them by living example 
What real oneness is all about
And through patience, wisdom and understanding-
We shall walk hand-in-hand and heart-in-heart to realms 
Never thought possible.

And we twain shall become one flesh.

I Love You

I love you is more than just my words,

 

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

Love is a magnet igniting sparks to try higher light.

Love connects beaming light twinkling at midnight.

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

 

I love you is more than me,

 

Love is pending in the depths of me I touch.

This is more than what I can realistically feel.            

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

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

 

I love you is less than you,

 

It is an uncut gashing wound,

With lifetimes of a scored scar,

It is a typhoon of who you are,

Apparently, it is difficult to do!

 

I love you is less than them,

 

It is always lost,

It is never found,

It binds to a cost,

Hearts are bound.

 

I love just like you,

And you love just like me!

 

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

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

 

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

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

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.

Your Lover (Part III)

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

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

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.

Your Lover (Part II)

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

If

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

Your Lover (Part I)

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

Ceremony of the Kiss

He gets to know her so they kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gives her a ring;
They kiss.
He lifts her veil;
They kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gets to know her as they kiss.

Song of Betrothal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Loving You

As i've gotten to know you, I've fallen in love with you more than expected. I guess it's the

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

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

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 !!!

Our Doorway Delight

I sit at work
Wishing all day
Newly married
Images, in my mind displays
 
As i finish work
I head off home
An hour away
My minds in roam
 
I picture my girl
At the door she awaits
Her bouquet of scent
My loving soul mate
 
Into our drive i turn
As she catches my eye
Scantly dressed
Revealing thigh
 
Silky robe
Shoulders bare
Azure blue eye's
In wanting stare
 
Bleep, bleep
Car's locked
Were face to face
Our lips are docked
 
Buttons popping
Dishevelled clothes
Our doorway delight
As our passion grows
 
Our bodies dance
In sensuous song
Inner merge
Bonding strong
 
Joys reached
In doorway bliss
The door closes
For another wish

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!"

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

Partnerships

Several weeks of flirting,
Two back massages,
Asking for a date,
Trip to dinner and Wal-Mart,
Sneak of a kiss over shoulder,
Asking for a second date,
Several dating times,
More kisses and hugs,
Flowers on birthday,
Remembering date of first date,
Valentines Day flowers,
Special poem for her,
Asking for hand
Wedding day,
Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,
I love you!
(Forever)

Soul To Keep

The ceremony was a joke, 
The bride didn't wear white. 
We were married by Spok,
On the outskirts of Vegas that night.
You wore your tripp pants,
I wore my black corset boots.
Because nothing else mattered,
But being with you. 

The rain started to fall,
The stars really came down.
As you gave me your jacket, 
And spun me around. 
It had finally happened,
We were finally married.
We sped down the road in my hearse,
With Joy Division blaring.

We drank our insides dry, 
We hit every bar. 
And pulled the car over,
To make love under the stars. 
With fake I.Ds in our pockets, 
We fell far from grace. 
I made a point when we got home,
To throw rice in your face.

The bills grew up, 
And we did too.
With every fight and dollar earned.
We lost the innocence of youth.
And everytime we walked out on this, 
We found our way back home.
Though every ambulance ride, 
We never woke up alone.

And still to this day,
Before we go to sleep.
As I lay down beside you.
I give to you my soul to keep.

God's Institutions

God's institutions
Do not fail...  his people do.
Some fail to love and forgive;
Some fail to stay faithful, too.
Some fail to stay concerned;
Some fail to step back and review.
Some fail to notice times and seasons.
Some fail to know what to say and do.
Some fail to pray and listen.
Some fail to see and hear their cue.
Some fail to love themselves.
Some fail to make old things new.
Some fail to change and grow.
Some fail to be creative with shape and hue.
Some fail to work and work again.
Some fail to laugh and play, too.
Some fail to hear God's instructions;
Some fail to follow them through.
So, it's not the institution
That crumbles; it's the people that do.

My Wife Marilyn Monroe

I’m a simple man with stature quit norm In search of a partner who could weather a storm A woman with style, elegance, glamour and grace A vision of beauty, charm, poise and a pretty face She would be fast with a quip and quick with her wit Every room she appeared would be instantly lit She’s more than celebrity she’s a culture icon Changed her name from Norma Jean to Marilyn Oh how she and I could set fire to a town The two of us together would burn the house down Marilyn Monroe will you marry me? What a sight for all my friends to envy and see

All My Life

You'll never have anthing to weigh down your mind
there's no one else deserving of my time
The thought of you brings a smile to my face
and my heart flutters like I won a race
The sound of your voice is ever so clear
sweet like a soft whisper directly in my ear
I want to hold your hand, stand by your side 
have you as my husband and be your blushing bride
You'll never have to worry about another man
We'll be joined forever by our wedding bands
My love is overflowing and ready to give
All my life with you is where I want to live.

Freddy The Fly Takes a Bride

Freddy the Fly,
Now back from the moon,
Noticed on his calendar,
That it was now June...

The wedding month,
thought our dear Freddy,
But a fly has a short life,
So then, before I'm dead,
I gotta' find a fly-wife!!

So Freddy flew
all abouts the world
Searching for,
the perfect fly-girl

Finally he was rewarded,
When Nicole Fly he did meet,
He got so excited,
He stepped on her fly-feet

But the attraction seemed mutual,
Like a fly to horse manure,
But when they did converse,
They both were very sure,

Freddy proposed his 
fly matrimonial hope,
Nicole said yes, let's
go elope....

But a wise Freddy the fly,
Did look her in the eye,
He knew she'd someday
regret,
Such a simple way to beget,

So he told her of his plan,
For the biggest fly-wedding
in all the land,

The solemn day came real quick,
A Sunday wedding, they did pick
And as it did unfold,
This story I was told,
He'd waited for her hand to hold,
To place on her fly-hand the ring gold,

Dressed in his little fly-tux,
Fly guests tried to hold their yucks,
And Nicole, in her fly gown,
Flew about, then up, then down,

To land on the fly-alter,
Not for a fly minute did she falter,
Said, "Yes, Fly Priest, I do!!...
And if's all the same to you.....
Would you get off my fly wedding cake,
It took so long for the fly-baker to make"

And Freddy's anxious to leave at once,
On a fly honeymoon, for sure,
But, alas, I almost forgot-
No "moon" in the honeymoon- no more!

For Freddy had eatten the romantic moon,
It tasted like sh_t, and it did ruin,
The moonlight for kissing was there no more,
So to fly-sleep they went,
and soon began to fly-snore.....

Now a Freddy Fly's snore is an event to behold,
At least as a fly-story, we've been told
Nicole , she couldn't sleep
As Freddy fly-snored deep,
She flew off and let the fly groom,
Wake up next fly-day to fly-gloom!

Before you say I DO


Don’t wait for Mr. Right

Before you say “I do”
Be the Mrs. Right, don't wait for Mr. Right  
Think deeply and search through your heart
if you're the type of woman who can manage her home
if you're the type of woman who can handle her man’s emotion
if you're are not that type of lady who thinks marriage is 
Only for child bearing and for a kitchen-house wife

Hope you are not the kind of lady who has no vision 
For the kind of man she wanted and lack wisdom on how to treat men
Hope you are not the kind of lady who desire to use men as hand-bag
And forget that they may in-turn use her as a punching bag

Hope you are not the nagging type of a woman
Who her husband prefers outdoor activity than sitting by her
Or the one her husband prefer to see empty bottles than seeing her face
talk-less of listen to her ungrateful wish
Who only complain about what her husband did not do
But fail to commend on what he had done when she least expected
Who compare her husband with the neighbor’s man?
And who always compete with her man in different regard

Hope you are not the unfaithful and faithless of all women
Who is unstable in her matrimonial home
Who is not ready to stand in when things are tough and rough?
Hope you are not the kind of lady who is addicted to party
And will abandon her spouse and children at home without trace

Hope you are not that lady who snub men that come her way
Instead of listen to their talk, she is busy thinking about their purse
Hope you are not that kind of lady who her thought is in what she can get
From every men and not in what she could give to each man who are in need
And you are not that lady who snub men she think are not well-to-do
And you are not that kind of a woman who her greed for pleasure
Allows her date only those well-to-do men because of her belly

Hope you are not that kind of lady who looks down on potential men
Who make jest of men struggling on their path to rise to prominence?
Or that kind of lady who is not prepared to assist her man when there is need
But in vain waiting for those she thinks are rich and loaded with money
And you are not that type of girl who is waiting for the ready made men
Those that have built their empire without the help of any woman
But need a woman as a house wife and not a career woman.

So before you say i do
Make sure you are the Mrs. Right 
And be aware of your flaws
And don't expect any Mr. Perfect
Since he’ll not come by anyway
So think deeply before you say Yes I do

MARRIED SEPARATELY

He came back to me again, only to blind me,
Sweeping my peace away in a hurricane
When it took so long to let myself free,
Only to have it all return; a familiar pain.
It was the day we took our wedding vows,
He was the first to say, "I do".
I became his wife, he my spouse,
It was a dream come true.

But it was over before it began,
Words he spoke not from his heart.
Loving me was not his plan,
He was only playing a part.
Causing my soul to turn to stone,
Leaving his name engraved so deep.
When after only a day, I was alone;
Left alone, only to weep.

An event I've waited for all my life,
Not expecting to only be a pawn.
Just wanting to be the "perfect wife",
But in moments it was all gone.
Allowing myself to never ever forget,
Feeling I was a fool to his charm.
What could he possibly hope to benefit
From causing me so much harm?

I really believed he loved me for real,
But it was just a game in his eyes.
Hurting me was just part of the deal,
As if he were to win a big prize.
So many lies, such deceit thrown in my face,
Asking myself what he really felt.
No words said, just leaving without a trace,
Causing my whole world just to melt.

I was tossed asside like I didn't matter,
Thinking our years together were only a waste.
All at once, like glass I began to shatter.
Leaving my eyes blind, my mouth with no taste.
All my senses have vanished somehow,
My ears can't hear a single sound.
There are no feelings left in my now,
I've buried myself underground.

I just wish that I could understand why,
So I can settle my heart and soul,
To be able to accept it; to say goodbye,
So I can heal and again be whole.
But until then, they'll remain these questions
Going unanswered, leaving me so confussed.
Knowing I've definitely learned my lesson:
I was the one with everything to lose.

A ROYAL'S QUERULOUS DEBATE

The curtain slowly rises...the audience is spell-bound
by the appearance of royalty

Act 1, Scene 1

King Henry VIII: O adored wife, you never drew
another man to your breasts;
have I loved you more or less?

King Henry VIII: O voluptuous lips that have kissed mine,
when roses spurred to greatness,
is your trust in me flimsy or fortified?

Queens Katherine: Why are you asking me this,
beloved husband, if the promise
of that young virgin was more than true?
I have desired your strong arms around me,
to dispel my fears and doubts on many moonless and frightening nights...
when the northern wind ruthlessly entered in the chambers,
and blew out all the candles that were more aromatic than columbines!
O dearest love, which need I didn't provide you by touch? 

King Henry VIII: No, sweeheart everything you offered me,
but lust for another woman led me astray...
leaving your marital bed and sneaking away!

Queen Katherine: O dishonorable husband, what made you so unfaithful...
if I made you the vessel of these dreams,
to transport me on soft waves like cherubs' wings?  

King Henry VIII: Not enough passion in love-making, insensible wife...
permitting your guilt prevent the pleasure 
I sought in every embrace and intimate feeling,
to boost this amorous ego without ending!

Queen Katherine: How dare you say that, unmeritous husband...
while your attention was focused on a mistress?

King Henry VIII: How can you blame me, uncaring wife...
making me escape and causing me to cheat?

Queen Katherine: This marriage took place under the eyes of the  Almighty,
and you solemnly swore to honor me,
to love me, to strengthen me and to spend a lifetime
of joys, of hopes and sorrows through love and fidelity!

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

In Name Only


She said I do.
She did not want to,
But now it is too late.
A ceremony,
A ring, a signed contract
And witnesses congregate.

She has his name;
He has not her heart.
They sealed it with a kiss.
He's hateful and mean.
She's a beautiful queen
Who suffered long with this.

She found someone
That loves her heart,
And she also loves him.
But they have children,
And both are married.
This comes between them.

She's in shackles;
He's in chains,
They struggle to be free.
Their bond so strong
Can't be explained away
Like a tossing sea.

They've built a house
Where they wait to live
No matter how long it takes.
She has his heart
But not his name;
For this moment he aches.

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.

Compeyson

We were perfect together
Inseparable
Night and day
Two blackened petals of the amaranth
Wizened, rotted, but eternal

A white angel, a waxwork skeleton
Gliding up the road
Towards the wedding knell
And by the altar 
Before the eyes of God
A letter, with your scrawled apology across it.

Rushing to the phone now
Dialling your number with spinster’s fingers
I cry
Don’t leave me

“The number you are calling no longer exists”

Then I remember
You faded long ago
The dress has yellowed
The clocks have stopped
The feast has rotted

I’m talking to myself.

Marriages last if:

Marriages last if ,both spouses remember,
to fight to save the marriage. 
Not to fight to win a disagreement.
Love each other,make each other,
make a commitment to each other.
One can not love for two.
Like dancing,it just takes two to tango!

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.

"Sacred Moan(s)" 

forgive the tide of my prism with its ruthless desire 
shall I inter into a declaration of faith under you
 
am i not warm and soft to the wanting touch
with every mount of your plausible deep moan

now with pipe in plume there is poetry in the purpose of moveable parts
sing out, great nomadic performer of one, 
and make delight in the warming of  vacuums, that softly a wait    
utter into places with giving in mind, of which can transmit intense fervor

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.

Where Do We Go From Here?

We don't mesh
Since we've been one flesh
We're never on good terms for long
As a matter of fact
One misheard word or act
Makes us conclude everything's wrong

And we don't click
Like the stones and sticks
That we've gathered from far and near
They've all been used
Now that we're battered and bruised
Where do we go from here...?

Why do we settle down
To settle for less or save face
By not waiting for true happiness?
Why do we put on a show
And act funny with each other,
Yet neither of us is laughing yet?

And why do we get confident
Seeing our strength and beauty,
Finally, from the words of a stranger?
And why do we stay together
While pushing ourselves apart?
Without mutual love we're in danger.

(Excerpts from the song Where Do We Go From Here?)

"Still Running From You"

"Still Running From You"

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

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

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

i beg the most of me 
to hide from you

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

what would you do?? 

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

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

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

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

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

and I'd be necked under you~

Our Wedding Day

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

Last night

i'm your hug 
the one 
that you let have you 
in the middle of the night 
that introduces you 
to the sleepy eye 
wondrous delight 
of being delicately awoken 
in the embrace of passion 
long enough to 
carry you 
to the next moment 
your eyes 
decide 
to close again 


but until then 
i am awake with your breath 
i am the shadow of the light 
that seeps in from the night 
through the courtesy of curtains 
hung by lovers 
who could never say "no" to each other 

i am the lick of the wind 
that tastes 
your skin 
long enough to 
carry you 
to the next moment 
your eyes 
decide 
to close again 


and eventually awaken 
with that "stupid grin" 
that spends 
the rest of the day 
on your beautiful face

It doesn't hurt to say

 It doesn't hurt to say 
It doesn't hurt to say 
 
 
the things we love to say to say that you matter more than me than my old way of 
life so that eye am clinging now to ewe my love my future life 

we love the two of you 
ewe love the eye 
eye love the ewe 

oh orphan never now 
not ever an orphan again 

ending life in love the wife of job left him for lack of love the wife that he had later 
on was not the first it does not say that she was restored to him but that again he 
did receive the me does not believe she even made it back from nether land but 
the second wife came a different one to wed 
 JOB again was given children and it was not the same ones for they had fled to 
nether land. 
It doesn't hurt to say the things we say we blend.

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

Your Love

Your love is like a melody
softly singing to my heart.
Your laugh is like the air I brethe
something I cannot, will not part.

Your heart is like a red balloon
that grows bigger with each breath.
Your life is like eternal time,
neverending, not even by death.

As long as I breathe air and live,
you will always be alive and kind.
Your memory will live with me,
in my heart and in my mind.

You have left, footprints on my soul.
Our memories have scarred me true,
and the absolute truth is,
I cannot, will not, live without you.

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!

DID ewe love

 DID ewe love 
DID ewe love 
 
 
Did ewe love mee more 
than the day before? 
Love grows inside of sorrow 
at the past come back to haunt us. 
But even so 
eye am manly also 
not confused of this my gender 
 ewe aer love fashioned out of time 
  to make me love 
creative people suffer more 
Don't you think? 
they are more sensitive 
sadness and hidden sorrow 
mixes with the love. 
TO make us love the more 
to make us love the love.

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 

Asleep

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 Perfect Man

You are my angel that fell from the sky.
You are so perfect, you have all that apply
As I lay here listening to your drumming heart
I feel like there’s no chance that we could ever part.
When you look at me with those golden eyes
I realize that you are my life long prize
Listening to you whisper your passion in my ear
how could I ever deny that your soul is sincere
You look deep into my heart and get down on one knee
You reach for my hand and ask will you marry me.
All I can do is cry out my joy and scream yes, yes, yes!
I then say to myself that I have truly been blessed.
Thank you god, for this perfect man that just walked through my door
if he only knew, that he is my first real love.....I have never been loved before

a differ song 

Salt And Peepers Yin and Yankee... 
all of us are just too many people suffer in the shaded oasises while long knives 
wait as ninjas making promises to GOD. 
One man smiles his KNOWING at me another shoots them daggers in me they 
both make promises that they can't keep me with the horror of they lust. Eye like 
children best at how they trust us. A little girl is singsonging and her mother is in 
horror at the man for he must HATE the little girl for making noises WAIT this old 
man loved it he was never very mean about it but secretly he hummed his 
breathe to match the song the little one has hummed. Thinking now only good 
thoughts of his GOD and how some people are just young and how they have 
that innocence of youth just keep the little girl from growing old OH WENDY 
WENDY WENDY please just learn to fly to never ever land with peter pan 
and she is making every word she speaks into a rhyme for she is the offspring of 
the wine the very poese and this poet the loving daughter of mye mamsie she is 
so very in mye heart a world apart but ever near me sometimes she seems to be 
left in me in the places next to mother held so dearly one man HARD as stone 
another yeilding growing older in the recess of the conquest of his time. 
Sometimes it seems this poem could go on forever for this poet would just stay 
and type these words forever and hum a differ song. ...yes ewe its for MARY.

Child Corset

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

The Garden Ceremony

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

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

To My Husband

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

To Have and to Hold

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

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

Julio to Marylyn!!

I love just the way you are 


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

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

I love you for more than 
what you are,

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

You've changed my life 
in many ways,

And brightened every one 
of my days.

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

Because in my heart you're 
definately something.

More than something 
actually, 

My baby and maybe 
soon to be.

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

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

To Live, To Love

Just when I thought my life was in trouble
I turned around and you were there on the double
No matter what goes right of wrong
You have been the one I could count on
Because of you I learned to live, to love

There has been many to stand in my way
For some reason I managed to get through the day
They say to live is to love
This is the one thing you look for from above
Remember, because of you I learned to live, to love

Keep in mind all the things we share
All the ways you show me that you care
As time goes on our love grows strong
Wonder if it's enough to carry on
Because of you I learned to live, to love

Promise For Another Day

You and me, 
we were ment to be, 
a match made in heaven, 
for everyone to see. 
for i  saw in your heart
all that was true.
Two room flat with a jaded view 
my opinions may sway  
but never when it comes to you
you were made for me
and i for you,
we both know
we will always be true.
Time is a blessing   
For days like wine grows sweeter
in this wait for you.
Moments become memories   
the heart is joined   
in splendd union with the words I do

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.

Eternity

This time is not an eternity
That we have together on earth
So let us love and learn each other
And cherish one another's worth
Showing sincerity in all our deeds
Speaking faithful words, no doubt
Let's appreciate and place value on
Who we're with and can't do without
For in Heaven we'll be as angels
Not given in marriage, neither married
So let's redeem our lifetime together
With First Corinthians 13 carried
In our hearts and in our minds
More than what we do and say
Love is spirit, manner and attitude
Which show the more excellent way
As we prefer each other in honor
Love and learn together on earth
(For this time is not an eternity)
Let us cherish each other's worth

Endlessly

Endlessly
   by Amy Swanson 


Take my hand and teach me
what I do not know - 

Touch my lips and kiss me,
I'll follow where you go.

Tell me that your heart is mine;
I'll give mine to you.

Show me of your loyalty,
I'll be forever true.

Warm my soul so tenderly
when bitter cold winds blow;

Help me believe I'm beautiful
even when we're old.

Love me, dear, not just for now,
but all eternity

Not a weekend, not a day,
but always... endlessly.

Supreme Love

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

A Question Waiting To Be Answered

Looking into your eyes could make all of my pain go away. Looking into your eyes 
makes me feel safe and secure as if nothing could ever happen to me. When 
you kiss me it feels like I’m floating and that we are the only ones in the world. If I 
were to say that you are apart of me I would be lying because you’re all of me. 
You are my heart and soul. You make me whole, so what I’m trying to ask you is “ 
Will you marry me?”

The one you're always thinking of
This is who I'll be
The one that give you NO doubt when it comes to real love
The one who show you that you can love again
The one who treats you like a lady
This is who I'll be
The one that knows how to make love a forever lasting experience
The one who makes you feel very special
The one who's not about lies,drama or playing games
AND THE ONE WHO YOU WILL VERY PROUDLY SAY YES THAT'S MY MAN

What If?

What if the world was to stop spinning,
And everything was at a new beginning?

What if yesterday was gone,
And the world wouldn't mobe on?

What if today had never came?
Without you i don't think life would be the same.

What if we weren't meant to meet each other,
And were meant to love another?

Without you my world wouldn't be here,
But with you I'd have nothing to fear.

Origin of the Kiss

Weaned from milk of mother's breast
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
The lips and tongue, two mouths
Exchanging and conferring breath
Which holds the soul and self-will
Uniting the bride and groom
Married and now in the room
Addicted to each other's sebum
Rubbing noses like Eskimos
Inhaling each other's fragrance
Tactile foreplay invites
Licks and lovebites
To copulation, consummation
Yearning for the other's sustenance
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
Breath of life for breath of life

Stepped into the Life

For richer, for poorer
Til death do us part
Were words that we whispered
Straight from our hearts

I smiled as I saw you
You smiled back at me
A vision of beauty
For all eyes to see

It was crowded, yet quiet
We stood there alone
Though so many viewed us
We felt right at home

As love there surrounded
And brought us as one
We pronounced all our vows
Then walked to the sun

Give and take makes it sweeter

One-Sided Love Of Parental Marriage

Lend me your lips, that I may kiss you.
Lend me your eyes, that I may see you.
Lend me your ears, that I may hear you.
Lend me your hands, that I may hold you.
Lend me your feet that I may walk with you.
Lend me your heart, that I may feel you.
Lend me yourself, that I may know you.

Pass not like wind, without touching anything!

You have my lips, but you never kiss me.
You have my eyes, but you don’t see me.
You have my ears, but you don’t hear me.
You have my hands, but you don’t hold me.
You have my feet, but you walk not with me.
You have my heart, but you don’t feel me.
You have me, but you don’t really know me.


Ok, just tell me one thing, where is the paper!?

ETERNITY

 ETERNITY 
Eternity 
How can a man hold water in the hand? 
does it run and drip and gone… 
How can a man live again? 
and live forever then… 
Forever is a moondrop a lightbeam a dream… 
Life is like a fraction of the aeon 
the never ending particle the spinning article… 
Never needing sleep never needing wheat 
but having very much having all the love… 
Starting over to do a thing and starting over 
and then starting over again… 
Without end no end no stop no more halt 
no lame thing no pain… 
No need for anything all needs provided 
making flowers grow… 
Meeting people that were dead 
and now alive for evermore… 
Water needs a container and to be contained 
a cup without a saucer is such a lame thing… 
Eye want to go to Heaven only after 
only after eye marry the poor mans daughter. 
Give me an eternity of love 
Bless my only one. 
Bless my love. 
Eternity.

Love Me for Me

{the woman}
If my charm proves deceitful,
If beauty will flee-
Will you still love me for me?
If my health becomes sickness,
If worse things you'd see-
Would you still love me for me?

(Bridge)
And I am convinced, though the future presents
Any creature that ever will be
In the heights or the depths, none can separate us~
If you will still love me for me.


Set me as a seal upon your heart
Lover of my soul, my deepest part, 
Just the way I am without one plea
I love you for you; love me for me

With the most vehement flames of fire
Waters cannot quench true love's desire
Or wash it far away into the sea
I love you for you; love me for me  (Chorus)


{the man}
If my glory of strength fades,
If fame will decrease-
Will you still love me for me?
If my talents should be lost,
If all gifts should cease-
Would you still love me for me?

(BridgeII)
But I am persuaded through all tribulations,
Though famine and peril may be,
That no hardship or nakedness shall separate us
If you will still love me for me.

(Chorus)

The Invitation

If you had just married a wife
Then were invited to The Banquet
The greatest wedding feast ever to be told
Would you say that you can't go
Or accept the royal invitation
And take with you
The one you now have to hold

Our Heavenly Father requests the honor 
Of your presence at the marriage of His Son
To the Bride arrayed in righteousness; blessed are those invited 
The wedding banquet is ready; will you come?  (Chorus)

If you had just purchased land 
Then received The Wedding Invitation
From the King to His palace of gold
Would you go look to His interests
Or ask to be excused
To see the field 
In which you had been sold

If you had just gained merchandise
And were invited to The Dinner
To sit with the righteous and the bold
Would you refuse the King's table
Or hurry first at His request
Then let your business
Multiply one hundred fold

(Chorus)

[Bridge]
If you give your regrets or do not respond
You will not receive the garments of fine linen
You will not taste His banquet like the many who are called
Only to the Few will the place of honor be given
And His house shall be filled when they are compelled
From the highways and byways and even from the hedges
From the streets and alleys they're accepted and chosen
For wedding garments and to eat the Bread of Heaven

First Lovers

In the Garden of Eden,
Planted where Heaven and Earth touched
For a moment, was God's first man.
He brought out its beauty with flowers and fruit
In preparation for the unsuspecting first lady-
But Adam was the one astonished.
When he awakened out of a deep sleep,
He saw before him...  Alas!  A vision,
A woman fashioned and formed 
More perfectly than any ideal he had dreamed of.
And God gave him her hand in marriage
To rule and reign in their kingdom.
They worked together as one and lived in love
(The one only for the other
And the other only for the one)
With no one else in their world.
Each other is all they saw; the man and his wife
Communed with God in the cool of the day.
They were naked and felt no shame,
And this was Paradise.

Solomon's Song

I have found the one
           my soul does love
           bearing gifts from above;
My darling, my fair one,
Come away, turtle dove,
After whom I run...
     I search to this end,
     To find my perfect one
And my best friend,
Majestic as the stars
          and moonbeams on lawn;
          upon the seas my beloved
Appears like the dawn,
Whom now I hold;
     I will not let go
     Of my concerned lover,
Whom alone does know,
Protects my heart,
          cares for me in whole;
          I have found the one
Who loves my soul
With vehement flames
     And coals of fire,
     By whom I am roused,
For whom is my desire
Unquenched and sealed,
          strong and unyielding,
          undrowned and guarded
With a blazing sword weilding;
My heavenly angel
     Hasted, and beheld me,
     Received me, embraced me;
Though refuge failed me,
I am strong belonging,
          and my beloved is mine;
          the shadows all vanish...
Day break does shine
As bright as the sun
     With the singing of birds;
     Unique and most lovely,
Voicing sweet words,
My flawless one is 
          my beautiful dove;
          giving gifts from above,
I am my beloved's...
I have found the one
     My soul does love.

Face

You have opened my eyes to things no one else
Will ever get to see.
You have held me close to the point
Where others could not breathe.
You have made me feel things that no one else
Will ever get to feel.
Through my lowest times you have been my safety net
To stop me from falling.
Through my uncertain times you have been my engine
To stop me from stalling.
Through my highest points you have been my balloon
Taking me ever higher to reach the stars.
You accept me all in all
From my piercings to my tattoos
Right down to my scars.
You made my heart beat again
Where I thought it had stopped.
You've given me things
No one else ever could
And for this I  will always be thankful.
For all the times you've made me laugh
And the times you held me when I cried
Even though you too were hurting inside.
Those times you've been there for me
I can never replace.
Anytime you are unsure of how I feel
Or where you stand,
You only have to do one thing
And that's to look at my face.

True Love - Dedicated to my Husband

A true love is
Someone who can gaze into your eyes and know what you are thinking
Someone who feels your own pain as if it was their own
Someone who can finish your sentences
Someone who understands you inside and out
Someone who has seen the darkest side of you & loves you more because of it
Someone who would give their life for you
Someone you can trust with all your secrets
Someone who will treasure every intimate detail you have disclosed to them
Someone who knows your inner child and the adult you have become

Someone who will be by your side through the darkness and the light
Someone who will hold you when you are scared, lonely and crying
Someone who will love you when you are penniless
Someone who will hold your hand on your death bed
Someone who is always there for you no matter what
Someone who can be your fortress when you need strength
Someone who will love you forever no matter what
Someone who will love each flaw you have as much as your greatest attributes
Someone who will hold your hand through life's journey
Staying by your side regardless of what obstacles cross your path

If you have what I described
You should hold it close
You should cherish your love
Because you have found something
That comes along once in a lifetime
That many of us will never find
That many of us dream for

When You Love Somebody

When you love somebody,
You will love in truth and in deed the way you desire
	to be loved by the other,
And you will suffer long and be kind
Until you find that all that that person has and is 
	is being given to you;

You will not be envious
When you love somebody.
You will both say good words and perform great and small
	selfless acts of love,
But you won't push yourself forward to boast of them
Even if most of them seem to go unnoticed or unappreciated
	by your significant other;

You won't be conceited or arrogant
When you love somebody.
You will honor and respect and prefer the other
	and his or her interests before your own.
So you will not be rude
Even if you're used or neglected by your one and only
	for his or her own pleasure and ease;

You will not be self-seeking
When you love somebody.
You may be offended or sinned against with words
	or by actions seventy times seven,
But you will not be easily angered
Avoiding the danger and the appearance of dissimulated love,
	you forgive as if there's nothing to forgive;

You will keep no record of wrongs
When you love somebody.
You communicate and disclose yourself and your feelings
	without fear or disputing,
So you will have no pleasure in evil
Around other people or when you're alone together,
	so peace is kept with understanding;

You will rejoice with the truth
When you love somebody.
You will sacrifice as if every sacrifice is but a reasonable gift,
	even laying down your own life;
You will always protect the person
And never reject the person, neither regret nor forget the vows
	you've promised in truth and honesty;

You will always believe in the person
When you love somebody.
You will walk by faith and not by sight until you're like-minded
	and have the same love for one another,
So you will always hope
And learn to cope and bear the infirmities of the weaker one
	until there comes a change;

You will always persevere
When you love somebody.
You will be strong, showing the way love ought to be;
	knowing you're not perfect, but striving
You will conquer and overcome evil by doing good
And love the way love would, knowing full well that 
	without the power of love you cannot love;

You will always endure for the future set before you
When you love somebody.
You will have faith, hope and never be put to shame
	because love will never fail.

I love you more each and every day

I love you more each and every day.
I see your smile and it lights up my face.
I feel your skin and it takes me away,
Takes my breath so I have nothing to say.
I taste your lips through a sweet tender kiss.
It shapes my soul with a gentle breeze of bliss.
I pull you close with your loving arms around.
Don't say a word, don't make a sound.
Just hold me close and don't ever let go.
Love is what we share and care is what we show.
For you are my one and my only true being
This is what I'm feeling, but also what I'm seeing.
I know we can last for more than forever.
I'd never stop loving you even not together.
Nothing could stop how I feel this way.
I love you more each and every day.

Cast Off Your Garment

Cast off your garment.
Hide nothing from me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your body be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn of me;
Let your weakness be your strength
On this night we have wed.

Cast off your garment.
Be vulnerable with me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your soul be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn with me-
Every strength and all our weaknesses;
Let's share as we are led.

Cast off your garment.
Become one with me.
Naked I lie before you;
May your spirit be as bare
That I can know every whit of you,
That you can learn of me;
This my weakness is my strength
As we join upon our bed.

You have angered me

(I got the idea for this fictional poem from Me, myself & Irene.)

You cheated on me when we were on our honeymoon.
I was afraid that you'd cheat but I didn't know you'd do it that soon.
You couldn't have hurt me more if you had shot me in the face.
I thought our love was remarkable when it was really a disgrace.
You just gave birth and that proves that you and another man jumped in the sack.
I know you cheated because I'm white and the baby is black.

Gentle Touches

The slightest caress
Of your hand to her face
Should move with affection
And tender attentions
Expressing attatchment
After lifting the veil
Embracing her securely
Touch her with words
Speak with another tongue
Get into her spirit
Whisper on her lips
Declare it in her mouth
She will share the tongue with you
Words that only you understand
And she will remember
Gentle touches and loving acts
Sweet greetings and soothing tact
Of unforgettable kisses
She will give what pleases
And honor you with salutes

Wedding dress

(This is a fictional poem)

I stare at your wedding dress because that's all I have left of you.
You broke my heart when you died back in 2002.
Tears come to my eyes and they roll down my cheeks.
You were one in a million, you were truly unique.

You always made people happy even when they were sad.
All that keeps me going are the memories of the years that we had.
As I stare at your wedding dress, I feel so much misery within.
You ruined me for all other women, I'll never fall in love again.
