Three Hundred

Three Hundred

The wraiths were ringing dead wrought bells
while closely passed the shady shapes
of woods in dusk, where red indwells
communion made from ghostly grapes.

He ran amidst the winds and passed
across the side where grapevines grew,
it was her presence that amassed
small leaves and droplets of fog's dew.

Inside the winds' lone strings accord,
his Bell full-face, was dropped along
the streamlets and horizon's board,
untamed his scopes, they don't belong.

The Astral Chords! He knew this debt;
the skies demand and kill and draw,
the darkened paths his thought beget,
rose thorny droplets on his brow.

Persephone shall be his wed,
subsiding dew the mist regales,
the stringing roar that reaches red,
his greatest bride resigns his trails.

Shall be the threading of winds' howls,
her plea arises from the shades,
homecoming queen from astral halls,
he harks the northern swashing blades.

Ablution's her enjoining black
"Enfold me in the rising dawn
enfold your sadness in the dark
with magistral the curtains drawn".

Acute of wounds she heals and mends
the asphalt of the mists awaits
pristine her bridal thorns amends
while passing through the Hades gates.

Three hundred reasons drew the drapes,
three hundred strings of diligence;
The winds regaled the bride's agape,
his celebration to commence.

You Are My All

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


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


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


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

Runaway with me

Would you pack up and run away with me if I were to ask you to today?
Would you throw aside all the past? The turbulence we shared? Would you forget the screaming matches and remember what we shared?

If I dream of this; is there a chance that it may come true? The answer is too much time has passed, and there’s nothing more to say or do (unhappy face). 

But I keep on hanging on, like a worn out Diana Ross song. I blame you; bellowing ”you just keep me hanging on”. 

It seems I fell victim to the powers of your kiss. I treated you badly I didn’t realize how much I’d miss. 

In this case there are no victims, there are only volunteers, and it seems you too fell ‘victim’, still loving me after all of these years.

I’d like to say I am sorry, but this is a worn out tune. I do have regrets. I blame it all on me. As they say it takes two to tango I wish now that I could see. 

But then how could I be sorry to have loved so passionately? I am the lucky one, that someone too loved me. 

I still ask would you run away with me? Take me to the justice one more time for a quiet ceremony? 

Walk with me through life as if this is something we ever knew how to do. Accept the others faults with no backdoor to escape through.
 
Grow old and gray together family at our side, the American dream they call it a wild, bumpy ride.

All of the latter is something we will likely never know, but the passion once shared will surely never go.

Its electrical magnetic charge is etched upon my heart. Those times when we were young and would just do ‘it’ anywhere, that heat that drew us like flames we didn't have a care. 

I ask again, would you run away with me?! Run away with me now!!! there’s no time to make haste. Life really is short we mustn't let it waste.

My beauty fades fast my love, my lines have become deep, my desires they are waning. Still my love for you I keep. 

Run away with me my sweetheart I promise I’ll be fair. I will love you to the ends of time, more than you can bare. 

Run away even if you have to wait until the dark of night. Run away with me my love make everything alright.

Why You

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

BEAUTY IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
It’s a common saying that is decoded from the look of a man
But of a truth, genuine and true beauty is beyond what the eyes can see
Only the heart can feel it
It glows with such power, even the ‘blind’ will perceive
Regardless of our status, rich or poor
Aboriginality, the language or cultural background
We all can see and perceive this inner beauty with the same view
One advice for my fellow brothers,
Always by pass the look go straight inward
And from the inward, outward appearance can be well appreciated
And advice for everyone
As you take time to make up the physical beauty
Create more time to nurture the inner one
For when you are inwardly ugly
The outward projection is nothing but a fake

reasons.

Our Eternal Wedding House

Even death could not cause our love to part,
This promise has always sounded so right,
These words of hope still echo in my heart.

When they found his body, tears did not start,
Through this strong shock, I continued to fight,
Even death could not cause our love to part.

Stole to his fresh grave with a garden cart,
Our wedding vows I began to recite;
These words of hope still echo in my heart.

I dug with fervor, my body did smart,
yet never ceased digging all through the night.
Even death could not cause our love to part.

To our wedding house we arrived, stalwart,
Just as the porch was kissed by morning light;
These words of hope still echo in my heart.

Blue and cold, he remained a work of art, 
From my opened wrists flowed the crimson, bright.
Even death could not cause our love to part,
These words of hope still echo in my heart.

My Cousin's Wedding

My cousin shared her wishes and dreams, On our star gazing night, she whispered them so sweet As a shooting star glided down from the sky, She said, I wish ….. I wish…. all I wish are these tonight Someday, I will marry a smart, rich and handsome guy And have a grandiose banquet on my nuptial rite We’ll be dancing like a lovely prince and princess , With all my wedding sponsors on their best suits and dresses All in pink ,that’s the motif I will surely request. She kept into her dreams as several years passed by, Still searching for her prince charming who’s hard to find Unconsciously going beyond the age to give birth to a child, In a hurry at age of seventy, she took a rich ninety years old guy. The wedding was held after a day or two, The guy seated on his wheelchair with rheumatism on his toe She headed slowly at the alter to accept his shaking hands, Two nurses followed, so with sponsors dressed up in printed brown. The highlight of the wedding rite started at once, They held tightly with a nebulizers on the other hands, But the words of oath, they took time to pronounce False teeth were both misplaced and nowhere to be found. Reception followed grandiosely in the guy’s mansion, I saw many old men and women still eager to dance on the floor, With hunched back, shaking knees, they twisted rock and roll Then, sweet music played and my cousin danced with her groom. But, we all wondered how did he stand alone? He’s so heavy , I knew my cousin couldn’t help him at all, With our great surprise, his nurse was at his side like his crutch Everyone thought , he’s really a smart guy! Was he not? Then, everyone followed them so happily on the spacious hall, And in trio, they held each other so tight and moved like a fool.

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!

When Fate Decides

( ) ( )
)( )( Fate’s Decision when fate decides to bring you love, your heart will fly as lovely as a dove seems as if your soul had reached a throne of gold underneath the rainbow of great happiness unfold
when two hearts cling together as one making sacred vow for a very strong bond for better or worst, ‘til death do us part, in sickness and in health, the loveliest thing from mouth to heart as colorful butterflies spread their wings crowning you both with joy and bountiful blessings applause will be on air wishing you both hope and success as two hearts build a family hoping to live in a home of bliss but when fate decides to bring you love it’ s not always like a fairy tale now just like a tall wedding cake that loses its shape when love is not nourished and nurtured by two people who share

Tomorrow's Signature

Yesterday sent its regards in a farewell
letter, 
A gesture of fate intact, sealed for the 
departed,
Or better yet, the progressive harmonies
of God, such as we are. 

It was perhaps the plot of the universe, 
When we slept in yesterday’s hands, 
And I asked you the question of 
continuation, 
In hopes of fading away mutually, after one
last bloom. 

Heaven must have spied on my everlasting 
request, 
Because with your pearl vision directed 
towards me, 
And your soft veil of ebony near me, 
You agreed, with no hold of hesitation. 

So under the chapel’s protection is where 
we coast now, 
And a road less traveled is scattered with 
our footprints;
While I did lead with company, along this aisle 
of anticipation, 
The stares of 1000 miles did not present themselves, 
Until your walk was introduced, thereby polishing 
this floor into glory. 

As I stood in the patience of joy, a distance was 
illustrated between us, 
You pressed forward and this negative space lost
its existence; 
As you approached with the tranquil touch of 
summer, 
My nerves fell sober, and I knew that which was 
parallel before me was art, 
The speechless beauty, I favored in sight. 

The preacher spoke a traditional verse, as our 
eyes locked in perfect reflection; 
Declared through spoken word, was the 
confirmation of our ribbon in the sky, 
Crowned upon your precious finger was the 
weight of symbolism, 
Silently glowing through the everglades; 
With no restriction, we explored the middle 
ground in unison.

We exited through the heart of the sun, cherishing
the unfamiliar heat; 
It appears that life’s divine notary has signed off 
on the greatest equation ever solved, 
May our souls forever write in this blessed ink.

A Love Song To A Beloved

‘‘A friend once in his youthful flight 
Had found a beauty delight
Though distance stretched them in mileage
But their love was destined to find a page’’

A lark that sings in the morning bright
Ke-ke-li, O Kekeli! My beautiful light
The hanging garden upon my sight
Hands of fate has woven a happy home
A love of current, stronger than the Law of Ohm
Invigorating, a love connected at heart
Which God designed never to part

Where there is love,they say there is a way
Our love I believe is here to stay
Kekeli, my beloved, sing me a serenade
A song of an angel’s grade
That in heaven’s clime pervade
Sing it across space and time
And make it last like a rhyme

My beloved Kekeli! You’re my light
You’re my Hephzibah, my only delight
Thou art fairer than Friedan Betty
Thou art matchless in beauty
So calm and inviting like the blue sea 
Beauty not to be told but for eyes to see

Behold my mistress of fair skin 
Eyes of diamonds, pure and pristine
O Tell me, you whom I was made to love
One, unique in your choicest apparel
Lips of zebra stipes set with a berry
The hanging petals of a blossom cherry
Chief among all my thousands buddies
O Kekeli! The only ruby my finger shall find
And wouldn’t be ashamed to be called uxorious

"For as a young man marries a virgin
so shall your sons marry you, and as
the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so shall your God rejoice over you". Isa 62:5

A Wedding Day Rose



A wedding day rose pale in dress 
'twas as fair as the maiden bride.
Vanity’s breath in two hands caressed;
tendrils warily pruned, implied.
Quiet beauty bequeathed filled with pride. 

Budding flower in light cascading, 
veiled imitation none could foresee.                                                     
Blushing petals fall, brittle and fading. 
Sunset bore weeping groom’s last decree.
Then into darkest night, he did flee. 

A wedding day rose in graceful frock
shall charm all attendees eternal.
Apart from the bud with thorny stalk, 
head silently rotting internal.
Dewdrops cloud o’er the earth infernal.

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

Five Golden Rings

Two different lives, from different worlds, were meant to be as one
He became her guiding star, and she became his shining sun

Once they had been strangers, but love brought them together
He had never fathered children, but quadruplets called her Mother

He brought along a gentle love, and was sure enough to give it
She brought along a crazy life, and taught him how to live it!

The day arrived, when they would wed, excitement filled the air
On the fifth Yule day, they said their vows, and end to end were there......
The children, four, came through the door, to crowd the alter floor

He pulled 5 rings, a diamond gleamed, upon her finger worn
And 4 small rings, upon 4 chains, around their necks, he swore
to love them all, and make them whole, and give them all he owned

5 Yuletide Days, 5 gifts he gave,.... 5 times the love, ...and more

The Lovers Dance

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Something Special

So many years ago
when life was young
bringing together a love
that could never be undone
is really something special.

To find someone, you'd never leave
to keep forever by your side
is really something special
through more than just my eyes.

The promise of a heart
until the day you die
the gift of happiness
and hope that it brings inside
is really something special.

Un describing feeling
of safety and trust
belonging to someone
the I turns to us
that's really something special.

Someone to kiss goodnight
that's still there as you wake
is really something special
a vow you agreed to take.

Everyone hopes to find
something special in life
 to have until the end
as you have found in each other 
as lovers and friends.

Memories

Thinking back on you and I
It doesn’t seem that long
It’s hard for me believing how
The years have come and gone
Everything about you still
So fresh inside my mind
Precious memories locked away
But never left behind
I shared with you my daytimes
But my nights I spent alone
It tore my heart to know your nights
Were not spent on your own
I knew the risks involved
Because you wore a wedding ring
But I never knew the pain for me
That wedding band would bring
For years my heart was frozen
From a love that it once knew
But I knew my heart had melted
When I fell in love with you
With you and I together
So many things were shared
But most importantly
I never said how much I cared
I tried to hide this love from you
Afraid to let you see
Not knowing of the child we’d made
Growing inside of me
I knew I’d never be with you
I never could have stayed, because
We took away this tiny life
That you and I had made
There’s nothing else you could have done
On you I lay no blame
But now my life feels empty
Full of sadness, loss and shame
I would give my all to spend
Another night with you
For you to hold me in your arms
And say you love me too
But if this never happens
Then I want to tell you still
I loved you then, I love you now
I know I always will...

GRAND GARDEN WEDDING

Cherry blossoms stargaze as spring air comes; East and west cross at Bells of Ireland: warm and calm; Welling slowly to cede: tender sage thoughts, Upon two hearts link, after hundreds of sought and fought. Cathedral posts accent with ribbons of violets. Congregate white orchids grin alongside the aisles, Roseband sings tunes: forget-me-not to highest. Wearing her lavender gown,Heather walks with smiles; Clasp in her hands,tulip bouquet, guests she stun Her Lilac in tuxedo waits: eyes locked tight in knot Gentleness bestow from heavens, ever won Their iris fuse glued; love radiating allot Matching band's inscription: embroidered golden rings Baby's breath, a grand wish soon very soon, will spring.
NOTE: All bold words are different flowers.. :) I always love flowers. I am always fascinated of their beauty and charm but more than these I am inspired by them: philosophically and emotionally as well ... :D (c) Olive Eloisa 11:45pm June 24, 2014 Sponsor Cyndi MacMillan Contest Name GARDEN PARTY: VERB-alized NOUN-sense with FLORAL ACCENTS placed 2nd place.. :) to God be the greatest glory :)

Wedding Day

You and I become one today,
And as we stand here today holding hands, we end a chapter in our book
And as I look into your eyes saying these words a new one begins.
You are my best friend, my soul mate, my lover, my hero, and my prince.
I will always be there for you.
For when you cry ill be your shoulder you lean on,
And if you start to fall I’ll be there to catch you.
For when your happy ill be the smile you see.
And if your sad ill be the one that makes you laugh.
For when your sick ill be your aid that makes it go away
And for the small times that we might be apart,
I will never stop thinking about you.
You’re in my heart always and forever,
And I love you more than life itself.
And each day I thank god that we found one another.

Prince Charming *YEAH RIGHT*

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

He said...

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

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

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

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

Strong and Brave?

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

Stand beside me?

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

Share his riches?

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


Honest and faithful?

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

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

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

missing piece

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

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

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

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

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

The Union

Theres a reason why you are together,my dears
Possibly brought to one another by chemistry
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

YOU ARE SO SPECIAL

The moon told the stars,
there's nothing more beautiful than you,
The sea told the sky,
there's nothing more higher than you,
The wind told the light,
there's nothing more faster than you,
but,they all agree on one that is true,
there's nothing more special than you,
Thats why i say it with a beautiful clue,
I am madly in love with you....

Desire

Caught in a trance

An undescribable daze

To anyone, her beauty
Is bound to amaze

So soothing is the voice
Of this woman I so despratly desire

In her eyes she holds
A passionate fire

Confused and stumbling
For words when she is near

Rejection is one's
Deepest fear

Embarrassed 
Never have I been
All i wish
Is to see her again


No particular woman
This powm was written for

It represents the ones
Who have someone they adore

Yey unmistakable is
Her deep mystic

Hair no falling
beyond her slender cheek

The hardest thing to govern
Is that of the heart

Yet desire and love
Are not that far apart

For love
Is attraction and desire
that fortifys over time
Nothing is higher
Only needed is a sign

Kneeling down, I ask
You to forever be mine

Pretty Girls

This is for all you pretty girls,
with necks choked with ashen pearls,
and pricy shoes on your feet,
and pinned up golden tresses,
and virginal white dresses,
ready to make love complete.

Now when the wedding bells chime,
it will be an ideal time,
to think of the one you tossed.
The one who bled true passion
and whose love he would fashion.
The good one, whose heart was crossed.

And it is for your own sake,
when you taste that angel cake,
to think of the one not chosen.
There's a gem on your finger,
but you know something lingers,
and thoughts of me are frozen

Time shall tell---

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A WEDDING STORY

The ink drips from the pen placing the words in a line 
Cherished moments written from a moment back in time
Pondering thoughts come one by one 
Placing the story from where it begun
White satin gown and a neck of pearls 
Long blond hair with sparse of curls
A netted veil eyes shaded in blues 
Blue flowered bouquet and fine white shoes
Vows from the heart rings of gold 
Another page written on the story told 
At the alter her love awaits wearing colors of the same 
Gracefully walking closer to except his name 
A beautiful bride playing out her day of glory 
As the ink drips from the pen to tell her story

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

The future within

 It's been a long time I know,
 the future laid before us untold.
 What we both want for each other,
 no more holding back from what our hearts can usher.

 Now the decision is yours to make,
 the feelings between us have been anything but fake.
 The desire for more than we've had in a while,
 I can't hold back anymore to try and make you smile.

 Don't doubt what your heart tells you cause it was made for love,
 forget the anger the confusion and anything fearful you can think of.

 The future within is laid before our feet,
 both of us not willing to accept defeat.
 You know I love you more than anything in this life,
 my friend, my lover, my wife.

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?

To My Husband

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

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

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

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

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

  I Love You

The Vow

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

My Promise on Our Wedding Day

It would seem that when we have gotten close to each other
So many obstacles have come before me
But as I tackle them slowly, one after the other
The ones after only seem to get harder
But my love... No matter how hard the...
Situation may be... I'll stay with you...
Now my babi... Don't worry about us...
Have faith! Because there isn't anything stronger than our love...

I'll never be pulled away from you!
Even apart, I am still with you
These's no way I'd survive without you
And together we'll always be 'cause I love you!

As I go through life, I only get wiser everyday
And I will pass this along soon enough
Though i may try to be tough, I can't seem to with you
Though I'm vulnarable, you take care of me
Now my love... I want to give to...
Our future children... What you've given me...
And my wife... I can see them just fine off...
I believe! Because there isn't anything stronger than our love...

I don't care what other people may say!
You and only you were meant for me
Now my life's complete because of you
And I know that I'll be fine with you!

I can never be pulled away from you!
No matter how hard our enemies may try!
Our love is like the purest light ever seen!
And just like the light, our love can't be defeated!!!

Ceremony

I miss my youth. 
all of the foolish things I did for you
sneaking out, to laugh about absolutely
nothing to the untrained ear
trying hard to feign adulthood
prove my "woman-ness" 
but still a little girl with a big crush
It was the purest form of us
youth, made us deities
you hercules me venus
as we've grown I yearn for
your face and those intelligent
eyes. Your ability to make me laugh
at my southern drawl. When you left
me the last time I 
trained my palate to be northern.
I remain fascinated at your appeal
how you managed to enchant me in our 
youth, I can't give anyone else my heart.
The whole day, decked out in eggshell white
I worried about the end of you.
Saying I do meant saying goodbye forever
A good girl doesn't take more than needed
but I need you
to come back around again
to prove that in my old age
I made a wise decision
locking you in my heart is how it
must be until 
we are deities again
now you are icarus and I am persephone
their plights neither inspire to hope
or dream
In my mind I dream youth
for us
Hoping that we will feel the way
we once did one night
when everything was new and 
led us to be inspired,
to feel king again
Has time passed us by in such a way
that I am begging for youth
to return? 
It was the second longest walk in my life
satin and tulle never felt so much
like lead
He whispered in my ear at the door
we could leave out the side exit
no one would ever know
He watched my youth flash
before my eyes, saw me 
think about the sweetest
thing that I've known
and I thought of us that night long ago
like two little kids trying on their 
parents' clothes
the fun we had
the mess we made
in our youth

Magic Words

No truer words of love are ever spoken
No better way to confess a love so true
No greater way to express a love eternal
Than to say those words, so bonding two…

For heaven holds the hearts as one, combined
Born separate, but now joined in love eternal
As the power of two words, so come to mind…

Wedding Day

On this day two will become one..
Never to walk again, this world alone..
You will vow to hold each other near..
Through bad and good times, each one wiping away the other's tears..
God will shine down his brightest ray..
The angels will sing with thunderous joy on this perfect day.
The bride will glow brighter than the stars at night..
The groom tall and handsome, glowing with the candlelight..
The two will dance all through the night..
Love shining through each hug and kiss, embracing each other tight..
God and his angels rejoicing above..
Celebrating the beauty of their love..
Angels spreading their gold dust on this new journey they begin today..
Guding them through life's journey each and every day..
Keeping their love strong for each other--never to stray away..

Empty Church

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

Passing Name

My love is everlasting,
Expanding everyday,
With every passing second,
There's more than I can say.

You are always with me,
Inside my heart and head,

Are things that you have said.

You are my one and only,
I hope you feel the same,
I always want to be with you,
To share the same last name.

Wedded Bliss

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

A wondrous new beginning.
Inside my heart is singing.

You've made my soul relax.

Each new day we grow together.
Everyday has sunny weather.
I've never known love as pure as this.

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

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,

Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,

What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,

You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,

When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,

The One

The One by Rick Rucker When you have found “The One,” That person that outshines the Sun, Then you will understand the fuss, Your heart convinced with the first buss! Your lack of focus is normal, don't worry, Love will guide your heart, don't hurry, True Love is the force that cures, Your heart of all the past sutures! True Love has the power to change, Your mind, to rearrange Your whole life, To take a husband, or a wife. If all your life, you've lived alone, Talking to suitors on the phone, It's so nice to sit together, Without the phone cord acting as a tether. Something as simple as holding hands, Takes on new meaning with wedding bands. A wedding changes everything, Makes you feel a Queen, or King! That this person wants to spend Their life with you, 'til the end. What might have started out with lust, Has ended with a promise: 'til dust! Marriage won't be only Wedded Bliss, But if each day starts and ends with a kiss, Doing this, and other things, Will mean you don't have to pawn your rings! If you don't marry, out of fear Angel's bells you'll never hear. That gentle tinkling far away, The one that makes you want to stay. Imagine your surprise, When you look into your lover's eyes, Your Love, your spouse, The one that shares with you a house. Being in Love, after decades still, Each one feeling marriage is a thrill How long can True Love last? I'll tell you when a century's passed!

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

While the shadows fall so widely
we shall embrace a moment
for a moment will fill
all the shells empty; holding nothing
but time—days n' days
without love

The wedding procession covered
you in flowers and white
floating through the candle light
dragging crisp white fingers lightly
through lilies fair
While the shadows fall so widely
and the candle light twirled through your hair 

Twist a finger, twist a lily
While the shadows fall so widely

Blush the sun rubbed rose cheeks
lift a veil, let the sun shine off your green eyes
While the shadows fall so widely

You were left a drift 
your beauty beyond our realm
of beauty

While the shadows fall so widely
Lift the veil from mine eyes tonight
as goes the cloud from under your star
I see

While the shadows fall so widely
your foot astray touched the water
and you bloomed embracing me

While the shadows fall so widely 
we shall embrace a moment
for a moment will fill
all the shells empty; holding nothing
but time—days n' days
without love

The Right Thing to Do

Written 7 March 2014
-------------------------------------

Bruce and Jennie, both were 10,
Had been playmates all their lives.
One day, Bruce proclaimed,
“Jennie… most good men have wives.”

He professed his love for her.
Jennie said she loved him too.
They decided that getting married
Was ‘the right thing’  to do.

So, Bruce went to speak to her father,
Who was doing yard work at the time.
“May I speak to you, Mr. Johnson?”
“Sure, Bruce. What’s on your mind?”

“Sir, I love your Jennie;
And Jennie, she loves me;
But we need your permission
To be married… to be “We.”

Impressed by Bruce’s courage,
He knew this confrontation must be tough.
He smiled and asked, “Bruce, are you sure
You love my daughter enough?”

Bruce’s face became stern, he said,
“Mr. Johnson, let me tell you…
I love Jennie so much…and she loves me.
We’re both sure it’s the right thing to do.”

He was moved by Bruce’s ardor,
But permission was not his to give.
So, quick as flash, he responded,
“But Bruce…where will you live?” 

“Sir, I measured her room;
Then I measured mine.
Hers is 40 percent bigger.
We’ll live there.  We’ll be fine.

If we have extra stuff,
We’ll keep that in my room.
We’ll keep our places neat and tidy.
You won’t even need a broom.

And both our parents can save money 
On babysitters too.
Even if you do things on the same night,
You’ll only need one sitter, not two.”

Mr. Johnson was impressed with his logic,
But this marriage idea was no longer funny.
He smiled and said, “That’s good thinking, Bruce;
But what are you gonna do for money?

“Why, Mr. Johnson, I get twelve-fifty a week allowance;
And let me remind you, Jennie also gets ten.
Throw in our birthdays and Christmas cash….
Why, we might even have money to lend.”

Desperate now, he thought, 
“Next, I guess they’ll want a car.”
Then he asked, “But Bruce, what if you have kids?”
"Aawww," blushed Bruce... “We’ve been lucky so far.”

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.

THE LEGEND OF CELINE, THE WHITE LADY

THE LEGEND OF CELINE,  THE  WHITE  LADY


In French Canada  no legend is more tragic than that of Celine, 
A beautiful Quebec maiden who, long  ago, fell in love with Alain. 
He  came galloping by on his white horse,  a handsome young marine -
They wanted marriage and  happily prepared their wedding plan.

They would go to the church  in a horse-drawn  carriage 
They would buy the  tidal watermill near their house by the river 
Next to  Montmorency Falls : a small whitewashed cottage
With garden and daisy flowers;  and he would become the  miller.

But one day Francois was  called to military action in a war terrible-
Every evening, pallid and wan,  she searched by the river  for her lover in vain.
Her beloved lost his life in battle, and Celine's bridal grief was inconsolable. 
“Alain,”  she called, convinced in her heart that they would meet again. 

After a year Celine could stand her  painful  loss no  more - the searching, the calls. 
One ashen moonlit night,  in her immaculate  pearl-blossom wedding  gown
She ran to the river, climbed onto the white horses of the misty Montmorency Falls. 
And disappeared  into mystery, as the swirling  ivory-silver waves swept down.

Calling his name, she slipped into the foamflowers.  Her snowy bride’s dress 
Was transformed into the falls’ watery cascade, and her long wedding-veil floated away
And became  a smaller waterfall nearby,   as she  swooned in the mist’s caress,
Listening  to  the soft loving words  she heard  Alain say.           

On moonlit evenings  the  maiden  in white  is still seen through the misty cloud
Of shimmering water cascading like daisy petals off the falls in their course:     
They say that his name can be heard in the surf and spume  of the torrent loud  
“Alain,  my life-love,  wait for me on your white horse. . . . .”
……………………………

NOTE:   
This is a well-known legend about the tragic love  story of the White Lady of Montmorency
Falls. The waterfalls ( Les Chutes de Montmorency) are located between Quebec City and Ile
d'Orleans, on the St. Lawrence River. These spectacular foamy falls are well worth a
visit.  Their height is 50% greater than Niagara; and the nearby ancient city of Quebec is
unique in North America.

For Always

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

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

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!

The Perfect Day

It was New Years' Day and the rain was pouring. The plans I made for were ruined by the rain. He must have noticed I was cold because I felt his silky leather jacket being draped across my bare shoulders. I looked over and saw him smiling at me. I caught myself blushing then looked away. Shyly I broke the silence. "I'm really sorry. I had this big day planned for us but," I paused, "I forgot to check the weather." Before I could continue blaming myself his finger tips led my face perfect plush lips. When we kissed, it was like Heaven on Earth. He told me something I'll never forget. Kneeling down on one knee, he looked up and grabbed my hand. The words still play like a song in my head. "Will you marry me?" Tears poured down my face. I was so excited the words got stuck in my throat. So I nodded instead. He picked me up, spun me around, then we kissed. There was so much passion we felt the sparks between our closed lips. This was truly the perfect day.

A Wedding Vow

Corpulent cottagers clapping like clowns
a fat Friday festival, gobblers and gowns.
Merry mad munchers of muffins and mirth
do-si-do dumbly, eaters of earth.
Champagne sugar shoved in a shoe
If love lasts not long, love handles will do.

You Alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Nature In Our Garden

                        

Today opening my door to descent the steps to visit my garden
makes my dreams come true, my green garden enlightens 
my heart most of the time i spend it there, whispering with 
my roses, watching the very old green trees, watering the 
green grass, i love it. 

Suddenly my heart starts beating just found an envelope with 
white roses sleeping at my doorsteps, anxious to discover the 
sender, with a huge smile my surprise, it was from my darling, 
he wrote:

You are the woman of my dreams, I am taking the liberty to 
announce, you are my reason to live, if you are not in my life 
I will not tolerate my existence one moment longer, I need to 
become stronger to carry you towards our love nest share our 
hot body, love the love that will slowly put off that burning fire 
between us under our green trees very soon.
                                 
Lay your roses down, free your hand to hold mine, together, 
we will walk towards our green garden and dream of that day 
when our eyes will meet to become bride and bridegroom 
surrounded by the green trees everywhere, friends clapping 
so hard for us to engage with that beautiful touch of our lips, 
a sign you belong to me forever. 

Will you marry me my woman with green eyes? Oh! yes yes 
I screamed not realizing he is not here but a letter in my 
hand, the invitation for my own wedding, how blessed we are.
                               
The weather was happy the full moon lighted up the outside 
view to watch my roses blossom and maybe tomorrow we will 
walk together not only to get married we will upgrade our 
thoughts to the highest peak,we will reach our goals by living 
as one, we will enjoy whenever we can and endure when we must, 
we will not anticipate trouble or unhappiness about what may 
or may not happen, but we will walk towards our green garden, 
soon as husband and wife. 

We will not allow any obstacle stop us from becoming what 
needed to be successful, in love always, my heart was 
instantly beating towards positive thoughts a husband to love 
to sleep with, to cook, to wash, to wake up in the morning have 
our cup of coffee in the fresh air, i will stand by my man, 
no matter what.
                                   
A beautiful marriage in my green garden, all surrounded by huge 
green trees ancient as this house belonged to my grandfather
and I inherited it.
I felt like getting married with all those greeneries surrounding 
our guests i will place 100 white chairs on each side on the green
grass, and the aisle in the middle with green ribbons on the chairs,
at the end will be the priest standing behind a white table on it 
a beautiful green table cloth the chalice and cross next to the bible  
between white roses and greeneries. 

I need to sleep to wake up early run to my garden and prepare
the roses to share and whisper to me how beautiful they will 
become on that unforgettable day, the green grass will emerge 
to beautify their existence for our guests, the huge green trees 
will wave endlessly with the wind, a flow of some breeze.

We will be married as soon as he walks through my door,maybe today, tomorrow or after tomorrow.
Now we became a family with my green garden it will live to shine and
share the amazing wedding of two lovers married at last with the green 
beauty of our garden.

At that moment my thoughts tried to trick me in a discrete 
conversation saying, how do you know you will be happy? 
can you guarantee that happiness will exist? those were my 
repulsive thoughts, disregarding them, i shook my head
with sophistication a vigorous reply we will become
Thee couple in love forever. 

Our unique marriage in our Green Garden Of Eden was televised that day
a huge surprise to us and our guests by a close friend as a wedding gift.

Sing with Chimes

Semovedly thine voice shall have no echo to hear.
Inly there be only hollowness to see no distant.
Natheless hardy wind, thou shall be inconsistent.
Gradual flow upon thee, wilts bring many a tear.
Wellaway can be withered upwards into cheer.
Iwis my heart and thou will bloom constant.
Thole stint without thee voice, time is non-existent.
Hark thy sweet melody showers over my fear.
Courage of mine shall champion forthcoming tune.
Heavenly fairies shall dance for both our souls.
I shall cherish and marry in month of June.
My love will grant me all musical controls.
Erelong our passion will bloom as we swoon.
Singing with chimes enriches our passionate goals.

Drinking tea with my wife,
Just to get rid of Idleness!

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!

little did they know

Little did they know that in the year 2008 
they were destined to meet and find their soul mate
we needed a dance instructor 
for the Berean Community Drumline
but little did we know that the Lord God 
would send a woman so talented and fine
 
Yasmeen you came to Berean 
and we took you to our hearts 
yet litttle did you know what God was planning 
from the very start 
Byron our handsome Associate Pastor 
the son we all love and embraced
came to us as a young man from North Carolina 
and with our youth quickly made a place

You both have a passion for uplifting the youth 
and the success of the drumline became your shared goal
once co-mentors then friends now lovers in Christ
as your relationship was under God's control
and when ever we witnessed you both together 
we saw a friendship that continued to grow
for God's hand was in the midst of your relationship 
and a mighty love on you both He bestowed

Little did they know that God had a plan 
as they both walked this Christian life
littlle did they know that with His grace 
they would one day become husband and wife
and today as you stand before the altar 
surrounded by family and friends
little did you know that on this day 
you would become one in marriage until the end

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

Love Poem Number 2

The first time I glimpsed your beautiful smile,
I couldn’t believe you were real, my ideal!
Your beauty captured my attention and soul ,
I could sense it immediately, you make me whole.
Now the distance between us and every moment apart,
is so painful and sad, it blackens my heart.
For you, my heart longs, your gentle, kind touch,
Your smiles, your pure love, its all just too much,
For my lonely sad soul to be far apart,
I crave you, I need you, you are my sweetheart!
Now that you have come into my black and white world,
Color abounds, and rainbows unfurled.
A new joy in my heart, for love once again I am filled,
A new hope, a new faith, happiness re-instilled.
You are my true joy, and hope for forever,
Im thankful for you and Im glad were together.

~Wedding Wishes~

I’ve known both of you for most of my life, And Brandon, I’m so happy you made Jennie your wife; You’re perfect together, that’s plain to see, So lets raise up our glasses and toast with Chablis; To the love that the two of you are bound to know, As you sit there basking in your newlywed glow; I’m proud that the two of you have found such love, It’s bound to have been sent from the heavens above; I watched silently as both of you said I do, As one life was formed from what was once two; The beginning of a lifetime together, Come sunshiny days and stormy weather; I wish the two of you the very best, And I’m certain your lives are sure to be blessed!

My Angel, My Treasure, and My Life

Throughout my dark and gloomy days, you are my light
You are the treasure that I seek through the night
A King held with such value, your skin made of gold
You are the warmth I need when I feel so cold

Your beauty, only an angel like you could hold
Honestly, it seems so hard to unfold 
Your presence, a cure for my pain
Like how the sun shines its way through the rain

Looking through the glass
Watching the sunset, as the clouds leisurely pass
I think of you
Creating such a peaceful feeling, just like flowers do

You are not evil, you are sweet
You are also wise and very elite
You are my one true love
And to me, you are just like a beautiful singing dove

Dreams - An iota of Hope

A poem based on relationship…”A girl in her own dreams” 
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare :)


DREAMS - An Iota of HOPE 

“Waked up 7 :00 am in the morning..
saw my beauteous dreams transforming..
ohh yeah..with a drowsiness yawning..
Suddenly I found myself refreshing.
Excitedly Gone near by emblazoned window..
Fearfully Viewed a gloomy shadow..
Suddenly he smiled at me through haze of smoke..
Like a fantastic sizzling coke..
Soothing music on its full swing ..
Like a glittering diamond in the ring..
He ought to give me red rose..
On his bended knees he bows..
He tickled on my pierced nose..
With which I got glaciatedly froze..
Like a tempting dark fantasy chocolate melting in the mouth..
We strongly decided and took a royalistic oath..
He Embraced his hand on my shoulders..
Which Got intact like file and folders…
Like the moon  shines in the sparkling night..
Enduringly felt to hug him so tight..
Dazzling  Eyes immersed  in each other..
Tuned together like a romantic lover..
Every nerve of  us conjoined together..
Because the love lasted forever..forever…

Suddenly a glimpse of sun came and shattered all my zestful dreams..
“”Ohhhh.. ohhhh No..Not again. Not again. No more illustrations. No one can dwell my heart like you. Please come back. No more dreams please..””

.
 Yep this feeling arised at once and will be still till our last breathe. Lasting forever. Just forever..
 We trapped in each other’s heart and now no one dare to break our love-life’s part.. Apart..

Love is the essence of life and it is measured not by the count of breathe we take..but by the moments we share together till our last breathe..

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

Love You Forever

Can’t forget that day
We took 7 steps together
Seems like yesterday
Its 7 years, we are together

Can hear the sound of heartbeats

Can you hear the sound of my beats?
It remains the same this day

You are my sweetheart
You are like my mother
I love you out of choice
With you, I have no bother

You hold a special place in my life
Words cannot say my love O’ Dear
Seven more births by grace of God
Our love shall last forever

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.

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

Wilst Thou Marry Me

Fairest of the fair wilst thou be as wife
For thy breathe though lips elixir kisses 
Our future can allow me true immortal life

I see mine eyes transfix and I am lesser free
A willing prisoner of a royal court
Unto passion's spells and gazes slavery

As winds of change bow me to mine queen
To feel the fables of inner beauty
The Gods of blessings that they bring

And loss of love becomes, mine only fear
Also time, the marble pillars standing
Still, grandeur when thee do appear

One is to dream of love passed the morrows
Be a man and mind never deviating
Setting straighter than Eros and his arrows

To deep, pierce through the soul to heart
Binding all of us whole altogether
Like the morning shadows to the moonlit darks

This nomad here and once, now a cease to wander
Outward towards scattered raging storms 
But, in the eye the treasure is love of lover

And I must call thee mine dearest dearest wife
Surely I canst pay Venus, or then the piper 
But, under heaven what cost shall be much higher

But, mine entire heart which I give thee 
A chance to hold an angel, I ask from bended knee
And through out the world words echo "Wilst thou marry me"

Am I Crazy, to Love You

Am I crazy, or am I just talking to myself?
Look at yourself,
Crazy maniac
dacing through twilight suns
in sunshine colored dresses.
And you say I'm the crazy one.
Please, don't make me laugh,
I am too much annyoid with taught lessons,
of life and death and love is a magical thing
but I am not impressed till my Gypsy Queen
comes up from the shoreline of the Middle East
and comes and lays next to me, as we watch the ships sail
through the Golden horn of Old Istanbul
into the bay of Asia Minor.
You say I am crazy, Am I or am I just talking to myself.
I believe I am having a conversation that has no end about your beauty,
I talk to whomever has an open ear, and even if people listened,
Who would care about what I have to say?

Since I first laid eyes upon your beauty,
I melted and you took my sanity away from me,
you took my innocence away and turned me into a worried monster.
I love you, and you take me home with you
to meet your father and mother,
both poets who made love and created a beautiful poem called you.
I am in love with you, your songs you sing,
sounding better than a nightingale in the midst of the twilight.
Walking the seashores with your mother as I talk to your father.
He isn't listening, all though he is a good actor,
for he acts if he knows what I say to him.
I talk of you and marriage,
throwing of the rice, exchanging of the golden crowns,
the tolling of church bells, and a happy reception afterwards.
The honeymoon, meant for the first born to carry on the family crest.

As we grow old, I want to grow old with you
Nothing now, a few thousand miles of ocean and sea
seperates us from each other.
Do not worry, for I shall come one day
in the month of May, your mother's favorite month
and I shall bring along a golden ring, a pearl necklace and two roses.
We shall walk the streets together hand and hand,
and wait for the wedding guests to arrive and see us on our way
to new beginnings in holy mantrimony.
Care for me,
I ask you one question, Am I crazy, or am I just talking to myself?
Talking to white walls that don't responed with life.
I need you, too give me a straight answer, to love me
embrace me with your beauty and let me drink from your knowledge.
For my sweet Persian Bride, I shall love you for eternity.
Now, come off the beach and cross the crossing paths
of mortality and morality and join hands with me,
as we sing the nights away, along with the sweet nightingales.
As we look into each other's eyes
I ask you, am I crazy to love you?

Love Poem Number 1

Looking into your eyes, 
on the first day we meet, 
I knew right away when my heart skipped a beat,
It flutters and pounds from Your beauty and care. 
It longs for much more, a world we could share.
You bring such a smile to my tattered, worn soul
A happiness lost, so long, long ago.
A hope, a prayer, I offer to He,
I ask for a gift, your smiles at me.
A smile that grows as we are together,
A smile that shows our potential forever.
You bring me such happiness and pure heartfelt glee,
All this and much more
just being with me.
You are so amazing, so beautiful , so pure.
Your company, your heart, your smile all my cure.
I thank God everyday for hearing my plea
I thank God most of all for you next to me.

Soulmate

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

 Your divine presence in life rejuvenates me..

 Your innumerable naughtiness made me silly..

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

Somewhere, an afternoon unveils with eagerness, the sun, which swims out of a cloud, lazily, unclothing bronzed vacancies--- Illustrious, unabashed light strokes, awakening bliss that does exist, somewhere

Dreamy Wedding

The wedding bells were in full swing, ringing
The choir in the church was melodiously singing
The groom saw the bride entering with a smile
It took his heartbeat, breath away for a while

He couldn’t wait to make her his wife
He’d imagined with her, his entire life
But before he could face her, came in her brother
He asked in an angry tone “How much do you love her?”

“As much as the sky spreads” he answered, it was true
“Okay then you can marry her” the brother said, “that’s cool”
The bride was now a step ahead, the groom’s heartbeat fast
Before he could see her properly, came before him a task

The mother it was this time, asking him to propose
“Very romantic it should be, else, I’ll oppose”
The groom sat on his knees and said “I love you sweetheart”
“I cannot live even for a sec, even with the thought that we part”

The mother was satisfied, the bride came further
With her next step, the groom faced her father
“You can marry her only on one condition
Give her everything she wishes for, you love should have no limitation”

“Sure” the groom said, and his bride was now before him
But before the priest could start, a lady entered in
“Stop this marriage! I still love you” she said loudly
“Tell me you still love me, don’t marry, and say it proudly”

The bride was surprised, her eyes filled with tears and worry
Just then the lady said, “Oops the wrong marriage, I’m sorry!”
The couple was now happy and they finally got their ceremony right
The groom’s face was lit up and the bride’s was bright

Just then someone called the groom, “Get up son! It’s your wedding today!”
It was then that he realized, it was a dream! But he was sure today was the best day of his life!!

Collage of Warm Illusions


A squinting friend peers through a lens Along the aisle, a tri-pod bends around bouquets, and snaps a file of wedding guests An older brother, winks a smile, for in his eyes a warm embrace. He plays a trace of Bach, on his guitar Her younger brother sings along, and thinks of spars, high jinks, and pranks, her laughing face that sparked their childhood bond Her father ponders her first bike mosquito bites, her freckles and a scabby knee A fortress, high, among the trees where a princess climbed, to castles, fair where songbirds watched from cradled nests, above her braided hair He'd turn the world from end to end to spin her back to then again, .....but that was then.... ...and this is now...he must release her hand... And through my tears, a child I bore adores her knight, with eyes... in sight He waits for her. She lights a smile...... in satin slippers up the aisle He lifts a veil and they are more than what they were before ~ ~

A Summer Song

A Summer Song

On a beautiful summer night in late June, 
they dance to the rhythm of the stars and the moon.
The warm sky plays a similar sort of tune.

She's wearing a fairy tale wedding dress.
She's clothed in silk and lace.
She's the epitome of beauty and nothing less.
Love and happiness are written all over her face.
Her veil flows down from her crown.
Less is more rings ever truer when she walks through her wedding doors.
Her hem reaches delicately to the velvet covered floors. 

Her groom lovingly gazes at all that's his.
At all that was once hers.
This moment is all that truly matters.
She hardly dares to breathe as their eyes meet.
His passionate kiss is ever more sweet.

She whispers to him,
"I'm in wonder of all that's now mine."
He smiles and whispers back
"So am I,"
sweetly playing his fingers against her spine.
He takes her hand in his; their fingers intimately entwine.
This is a gift of love from the Divine.
Like a bite of the sweetest kind, a sip of the most savory wine.

They take a sacred vow, a mutual wish coming true in the here and now.
A promise of old is forever told.
Something so priceless can never be sold.
Perfect hands reach out and take hold.
Difficulty most often takes shape to herein mold.
Courage steps in and takes over when the brave must be bold.
All is right again when the heart begins to unfold. 

Take hold of this.
Imagine its bliss.
An opportunity one must not miss.
The one true gift.
 
It's a Summer Song.
It's been sung all along.
Right born of wrong.
Light became this summer song.

I love our love

I love you every hour and every day
Our love is a goodie-to-shoes that can’t disobey
It’s also a dragon; whoever tries to slay
Will face hell with no hands to pray
I’ll love our love anytime, any day
We’ll walk on this earth with the right of way
Our love is for real lovers, no child’s play
Me and you, we are they
Who’s talk about to love this way.

I love our love, most of all I love you
Without you my heart tells lies; which is never true
I’ll hold you so close, make your heart a tattoo
Your heart can never be outdid to outdo
You love me a lot, I love you too
I love our love, how bout you?

' 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 …

At the Edge of a Petal

Dawn chorus trills arias in duet
Not a dulcet tone morning to forget
Rose shot with purl
 
A white wedding dress shimmers in sunlight
The blond tresses tied, a threaded delight
Rose petals curl
 
The fresh flush of a virgin: prescribed writ
The purity evident on soffit
Rose throws to hurl
 
The serene still reflection in mirror
Belie fervid brow - tester an error?
Rose bud unfurls


By Suzette Crous
19 January 2013

Inspired by the quote by William Carlos Williams: “It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.”

purl (n): sewing thread that is made from gold or silver wire 
shot (adj): woven of two colours in such a way that when the fabric is viewed from different angles the visible colours change.
Fervid: (poet.) Hot, glowing, impassioned. 
Tester (n): Canopy esp. over four-poster bed

Please see the About Section for details explaining the background to this poem.

Usually the same meter (eg as applicable to a couplet) is employed throughout the poem.The number of possible variants following a scheme are too many to list here. Whichever verse pattern you decide on, it must be followed throughout the poem. In this poem I am exploring the possibility of employing two different meter to accentuate the TAIL (line 3) where I changed the meter in lines one and two from anapaestic trimeter to iambic dimeter in line three.

Lines 1 and 2:  anapestic trimeter 
 * * / | * * / | * * / .....* an additional unstressed syllable
I end some of the lines with an extra feminine syllable (unstressed)

Line 3: iambic dimeter 
         * / | * /

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!! )

Thank You Lord For My Wonderful Wife

  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SWEET DREAM



When fate decides to bring you love that lasts
your heart whispers that you’re finally home,
Before and after, a joyful contrast,
Hands now entwine and open arms welcome.

Days of delight linger in just one glance,
Nights are brighter, a first star kept its word,
And like magic two minds begin a romance
with tender talk and a silence that’s heard.

A couple will be joined, fate has its way,
Bride and groom will soon be husband and wife,
This moment holds gifts, one for each of their days,
Spoken vows and a kiss start a new life.

See her smile at him, then watch his eyes gleam
for they were wed long ago in a sweet dream.

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

LOVE FOREVER FADES AWAY Leave you my tears

 LOVE FOREVER FADES AWAY!!!!   wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

Waving like the sea,
Your decision was bias.
You ought to give me wedding ring,
But set my dreams on fire.

Can you answer me for the single reason, what made you do this?
Was it the beauty? Was it the caste, or the complexion?

You said I am your love at first sight.
You were the one who took the initiative and intended to keep it up.
You were the one who delightedly filled my heart with zeal of love.
You were the one who elegantly filled the warmth of love in my soul.

Confronted with an unsolvable dilemma’s where there is no right answer, we always know the answer to everything.
But what you did? You just made false promises.
Still you define it as the love, true love?
Or the love that vanished with no reason.
Answer me, answer me, my thee??

Near the bandra reclamation,
Sitting at the amusement park,
You were the one who excitedly expressed your thirsty feelings.
You were the one who stared at me without closing your eyes for a single second.
But you were the one who set my dreams on fire.

You said you will ask your parent’s for lifetime commitment?
But I will ask you one thing, if you feel your parents will understand and decide your love,  then why you fell in love?
If you know that story wont line up with an happy ending, then what made you do this?
It’s just the pain you mounted on my heart. You just broke my heart.

When you blamed, that it’s the caste, it hurted me like hell.
Answer me my love, what made you do this?
I was happy being single.
Then, why you disturbed my life with no reason?
Then, why I got so much acquainted with you for all season?

It’s was so easy, that you picked up different slices of life but why Castism you did my almighty?
In the bruising darkness just left with ashes of memories, lying my face down in ignorance.
You broke my trust for all the life time in my way.
But still you left the happy prints, as a hope of ray.
It’s because of you, Love forever fades away.
But still left with the mementoes of yours, reminded me every day!!

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.

CONTROL THE LOVE

Control the love between the two of you,
Or else you 'll be hit by a blow to split off
Your life's heart like an axe.
Stare at each other, tenderly, communicate
With ease, graciously, whisper melodies, sweetly,
But do not let your fingers crisscross so 
That you won't be caught up in each others arms...
"ON THE BED".
Leading to each others thighs that wrought
The sweetest taboo.
So control the love if you must stand above ill manners
As you are not yet wedded.
Don't let it flow without measures or brake
For you might be tied up like stock fish to a bamboo stake,
Ready for the fire... ending you in utter remorse.
Control the love! control the love!! control the love!!!

When Fate Decides

When fate decides to bring you love,
Though not perhaps exactly planned,
It’s wise to recognize the fact
Love does not come at your command.

If you should let this love slide by
Who knows when fate will call again.
She may just gather up her skirts
And leave you standing in the rain.

Love does not always come with flair.
It can at times be in disguise.
Lucky the pair who’s standing there
When fate unveils her sweet surprise.

You’ve decided now this love is real
To be nourished and embraced for life,
You have pledged yourselves each to the other.
I now pronounce you man and wife.

The Wedding

Even after the rice was thrown and the streets picked  cleaned

A lonely squirrel searched for his share of the bounty

The widows had put their handkerchiefs in their purses

Tears of joy dried  and our dance began

Holding you close and the band played our favorite song

Under the brilliant sun

Our lives begun

Those names always hurt you

Lived our perfect life in our perfect world and the dream

Your love grew and mine diminished

Those imperfections clouded with fear waited patiently

The skeletons in our closet opened for us to see

I did try to hold you close with nurture and warmth

Under the brilliant sun

Our lives begun 

Those names will always hurt you

Our marriage ended with mistakes  both made,  and no one wanted change

We learned things ended because they were wearing out.

Our love grew thin from the washing and pounding on the rocks

We sewed and patched each garments and forgot that magnificent love

And accusations poked around each corner and  grew frayed

Under the brilliant sun

Our lives had run

Did my best to desert you

 The Paparazzi took pictures and were posted  on the front page

Our vowels came apart and drifted on the ocean

And those waters  were uncharted , and we shipwrecked

Natives parade our feelings on truncheons but still I lagged

Gave it one final effort and valiantly I yielded

Under the brilliant sun

Our lives had turned

New names that couldn't hurt you


P.S. I have work to do but this is a start

Wedding Night Bliss

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

SUMMER:WINTER

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

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

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

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

It's Our Wedding Day

I look at you; Oh, what a lovely smile 
I get dumbfounded for a while. 
You fit that gown so perfectly; 
And how's my get up for today? 

A daddy's darling, you're his pride and joy; 
And I am just a (lowly/naughty) boy. 
But mom is proud of me as well; 
She knows my love for you is real. 

We have our hope of the life ahead; 
Our dream to follow to where it leads. 
A happy ending is just nonsense 
Because when love is true it never ends. 

We cherish moments of then and now 
But the time has come for our solemn vows 
Bouquets are lined for you and me 
Let's walk the aisle, it's our wedding day.

I came up with a melody for this song but  I shall gladly appreciate a musician who may happen to come across this poem and put in his version of melody that would suite to my taste (which I prefer traditional  and acoustic or un-synthesized accompaniment type)  of song.

I Think I Love You

(verse 1)
Baby girl, 
I love,
But, not enough, 
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, 
I could hide my love,
But, I'm sincere, 
You're the only one,
That I can hear, 

(chorus)
I Think I Love You, baby (you) x3

(verse 2)
I can be your man,
But, you're my world, 
Baby, you're that,
Special kind of girl,
Baby, you're on top,
Like a canopy, 
Baby girl, tell me,
That you love me, 

(chorus)
I Think I Love You, baby (you) x3

Baby girl, I fell,
Inside your love, 
You're the only girl,
I'm speakin of, 
I never thought,
That I'd be here, 
Girl, I never thought love,
Could just apear, 

(Chorus)
Oh I Think I Love You, baby (I love 
you) x4

The Wedding

The Wedding

All held their breath
At her exquisite beauty
Trumpets resounded
In the heavens

The perfume of her essence
Filled the air like spring birthing 
All manner of flowers

Her brightness 
Like the full moon on a clear night 
Went before her 
Laying a carpet shimmering 
Like rubies and diamonds 

Her crown a halo of light 
Beaming from a Tiara set with diamonds 
Around a single fluorescent pearl 

Her dress of flowing pure white silk 
Shimmered with encrusted diamonds 
That beamed rainbow colored light 
That danced across her gown 

And from ivory sculptured hands 
She held a perfect bouquet 
Of red and white roses

And before her
A procession of bridesmaids
Pure and white
Led her to the altar

Of her 
Betrothed
Her 
Beloved.

What is it when?

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

I Do

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

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

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

In Youth-less Age

In Youth-less Age
 


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

Spring

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When I hold your hand

When I hold your hand
I know its true
your love for me
has truly grew
from a hill to a 
mountain
your the only one
I can count on
to be there when times
are lonely
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

Paper Thin

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

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

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

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

Bride She Is But Not My Bride

All these days, I wait the day,
Now that day has come,
Pour delicious healthy words,
Till I say, 'had some,'
Bride she is and bride she was,
And her heart was mine,
The girl I loved, still I love,
Hurt me more than fine,
still I love and still I love,
All her thoughts were mine,
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Hands on him and eyes on me,
All her hearts were mine,
Call me not and shake me not,
Till she show some sign,
Walking splendor, words tender
men will hail you high,
Silent thoughts of days that passed,
Now my heart will cry,
Fill with words and wipe my tear,
Pour me some more wine,
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Friends and kins, gone far away,
call them all to me,
comfort me, give me a hug
raise me up, off knee
guard my shoulders, please elders
let me cry out loud
blistering cold, climb my veins
walk me off this crowd,
O my girl in wedding gown,
ain't she just too fine
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

Give a rope, tied with a knot,
I will hang my self,
mad enough, imagining,
I will kill my self,
beautiful bride, darling bride,
she was all I had,
smile to me, lie by my side,
begging you my love,
quit marrying, please resign,
come with me, my shine
Music plays the singers sing,
filling evils dine.

All these days I wait the day,
Now this day has come,
Pour delicious healthy words,
Till I say, 'had some'.

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.

My PromiseTo You

When you are sad, I will dry your tears
When you are scared, I will comfort your fears
When you need love, my heart I will share
When you are sick, for you I will care

You will feel my love when we are apart
Knowing that nothing will change my heart
When you are worried, I will give you hope
When you are confused, I will help you cope

When you are lost, and can’t see the light
My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright
This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end
For you above all are my wife and best friend

These words I have written, speak of my love for you
From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true
God has blessed me, and with your hand in mine
Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine

Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows,
I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows
Happy in marriage, honor and love
blessed in unity by God above

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

Promising Heart

You've waited for a love so deep in my heart and soul.
I stay up at nights, to wait till' I can talk to you, more!
Loving you is a dream forever and a wish upon a star,
But your love is much more than, I can only love you, from afar!

I remember when we talked, and how you asked me to marry you.
For a minute, I've been thinking, is this for real too?
We've been friends for a year, with a romance of a true love,
Now you're my whole life, I'll marry you and become your wife!

Thank you, my darling, with all the love you've given me,
So, you'll soon be my husband, forever to be!
"I love you dearly", as I will wait and dream of you,
Until we meet, God will guide us to unite as one, soon!

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.

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.

Love's undeniable journey 
explores all life,touches an

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.

Love To The Music

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

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

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

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

The Bonds of Two

Since times of old,
a man so tall,
will lean upon
a woman small.
Since first they met,
and their paths did cross,
they've tried to capture
time that's lost...
By the grace of God,
each day anew,
their strength combined
is more than two...
He's keen of eye
and sure of foot,
yet she sees things
he overlooks...
As they maneuver 'round
an iceberg's tip,
she lights the way,
and he guides the ship...

How deep is my love

As you walk through the window in the night
No star in the sky can shine so bright
Gone are my worries and all my fright
Even my intentions to start a fight
Lost in the beauty of your sweet sweet sight
I want to kiss you all over, hold you tight
No it’ll be too late, I can’t wait for our wedding night
Eve, you’re my eve, and I’m your Adam Knight

Please understand I live for you today 
Err do not by thinking I just want to play
Rudely why do you keep sending me away?
Everything ain’t black and white, there is gray
It’s true that I can never get enough of you
Rip my heart apart and you’ll see my love is true
And I give my life for my one true love, which is you - only you.

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 
Aspic Salad

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 Need You

I wrote this for my hubby :)



I Need You
    by Amy Swanson


My heart needs you...
      like water, life
           you are the soil
                my love grows in.


My soul needs you...
       a spark of light
           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 other half
              my reason to be
                   only you make me whole.


I love you.

Wedding Gift

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love and Marriage

Love and Marriage


Marriage without love
Love-making  should make it work.
Love without marriage
Love-making could make it slip.
Big  questions  of make and break.

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


Details | Verse | |

I like your love

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

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

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

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

Love and Marriage

When fate decides to bring you love, Your old ways may need a little shove. Open your eyes and welcome the truth, That someone you searched for in youth. The smile, quick wit just closed the deal, There’s no denying the magnetic appeal. Standing before you waiting for the word, Commitment to marriage must be assured. The Trevi fountain only needs one coin, For love to flourish and your souls to join. Actions of love demonstrate true caring, The time is now to begin your sharing, Blue and pink candles are woman and man, The white candle begins the marriage plan. Together they join, the flames shine bright, Brought together by two families - this light. Good times and bad will come to pass, Now its time to toast and raise a glass. For you will now become man and wife, Forever in love - creating your new life.
In the marriage ceremony a pink candle is lit by the bride’s mother and a blue candle is lit by the groom’s mother, then the bride and groom light the white candle together. The pink and blue candles can be returned to parents or just left burning. It’s beautifully symbolic.
Written September 8, 2012 For Janette Fisher’s contest “When Fate Decides”

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.

TILL DEATH DO US PART

I cherish your tenderness brought into my life

My heart sings with the rhythm of your voice

No one is better for the position called “wife”

You’re the best qualified, I have no choice

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

I found the definition with you as my source

It said “All’s fair in love and war

There is always a puddle on path with a course”

Sleeping is good but this is what dreams are for

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

By seizing the moment with my soul to take

Our hearts shall never need mending,

As long as we’re together they should never break

I couldn’t ask God for anything more

Till death do us part I ALWAYS ADORE

How do I love you

Within the power of imagination
deepest love can go beyond the horizon
and burst the borders to the unknown.
It can climb on the shoulders
of the Universe,
cry out from the top of endlessness
and reach further away 
than the end of the rainbow.
My love is every heartbeat on the Earth
put together like a bouquet of love 
pounding for you to embrace.
My love is every amazing pattern 
on stones to be found on your path
and has no limitation in how to describe
just how much I love you.
The true face of my soul 
has been let out and shines,
rarely understood by others than you,
I love you for no reason and all the reasons.
Vulnerable I declare my foundation 
is nourished by our intertwined roots
and grows deeper by every magical moment
of our lips tasting each other.
My love is out of this world

So Long

We said goodbye two years ago today -
I'll never forget the way I felt that day.
I couldn't breathe when the door closed between us
And your taillights dimmed as you drove away.

I never thought i'd breathe the same again,
As pain took away all my wind -
And i stood there deflated and broken
Refusing to accept the bitter end.

It happened on my best friend's wedding day.
I'll never understand why you did it that way -
I had visions of our wedding as I was standing there
But you ruined that for me and left my heart betrayed.

I never thought i'd get over it, not in a million years.
I cried what seemed a river's worh of tears.
I mourned for you like someone mourns the dead -
It was the realization of all my fears.

But once the salt left my wounds, I realized I was free,
Free from all the emotional torture you gave me.
Free from wondering where you were -
Free from the fragile little girl you made me be.

And I never looked back once you were gone.
I learned how hurt can make you strong,
I learned what a real man should be.
And with that, my old dear lover, so long.

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

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.........

Come Share My Dream

For Wanda -- A Belated Wedding Song

Come share your love with me.
Please let this night be all it can be.
Then, with tomorrow's light,
come share your dream with me.

Please let me hold you tight.
Let love's embrace guide us through the night 
and, when the night is through,
I'll share my dream with you.

Take my hand, and let this night just be
a night of dreams two lovers will set free.

Then give your heart to me 
and let our love find eternity 
Then with each passing day
come share my dream with me.

Can You Be Mine

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

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

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

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

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

(Chorus): 3x

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

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.

Trouble

He was sun-scorched, flame-torched
stood tall, strong as a brick wall
loose-hipped, well equipped
in for the count, without a doubt
expert tracked, surprise packed
spurs jangled, wild mustang wrangled
I should have, could have
but I was lost, dust-bowl tossed; in Trouble!
 
In a mess, I confess
as he turned, my body burned
fanned my face, acting chaste
he was endearing, God-fearing
a lop-sided smile, immaculate styled
I could have run, fired my gun
but I only choked, when he spoke,
he was ice cool, me more the fool; he's Trouble!
 
He tipped his hat, steel-grey eyes of a cat
heavy lidded, my heart skidded,
he said, 'Maam?', took my hand
his cornfield hair, his unnerving stare
I might have, right have
high-tail, hit the trail
the preacher grins, there's all my kin
now side-by-side, my downhill slide; into Trouble!
 
All curtailed, I in veil
'Do you take?, my mistake?
white wedding gown, two hearts pound
next the ring, my clammy skin
my Pa's tears, must squelch my fears
all too late, more my fate
the thrown rice, last minute advice
my Mama's bliss, that sweet kiss; of Trouble!
 
Blushing bride, our buggy ride
all alone, our log cabin home
white picket fence, it all makes sense
just me and you, the mountain's view
angels singing up above, it must be love
carried past the oven door, need I say more?
a four-poster bed, enough said
'What a Man!', to our life plan; without Trouble!

Imagine

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Wedding Bells Ring

Today would be the day my wedding bells would ring, but they are still and quiet.

Where is the up roar? Where is the happy riot to cheer me on this happy day?
I do not see them have they all run away? Where is my mother? For she must walk me down the aisle.
I am her only child surely she would not forget about me.
However a better question would be where is my silver ring? The one that was given to me by my lover.
I am to become his significant other. Where is my beloved one? Where does he hide? I cannot wait to be by his side.

Today would have been the day my wedding bells would have ranged but today brings no joy only pain.

I loved only once but it was all in vain. The ring I was given was suddenly taken away...I was betrayed.
He abandon me and left me for dead. Oh if only I had known what was going on in his head.
Oh such pain I am in! Why me!? Why must I suffer!?

I have summoned all the strength I can muster but still I am weak with sadness.
However I can look back and say it was nice while it lasted. 
But my face reveale's all things; this is why I look so down casted.

In my bedrom I cry and think how everything he told me was just a pretty lie.
He never did love me, and he never will. Thinking about him makes me feel ill. 
But what's even more sickening is that I love him still.
Hate him I wish I could, but forgiveness I must give. 
However I never wish to look upon his face ever again.

Today would have been the day my wedding bells would ring, but the sun does not shine and the birds do not sing.

Do they also share in my sadness or are they also confused by this madness?
I sit and ask myself how could this be? One moment we are together the next moment we are history. 
You are one of the greatest mysteries that has yet to be solved.

My first kiss I gave to you, oh how I wish I could steal it back. 
Was my love so powerful that it gave you a fatal heart attack?
How I wish I could change the times so that your eyes would have never met mine.
But time cannot be changed set or rearranged.
What happens in life must remain that same.

Today would have been the day my wedding bells would ring but they are still and quite.

Emotion bearing so close for a solution, 
But wait you are no were near just to say.....

True Love

True love hurts
It always must hurt
Painful to love someone
Painful to leave him

People marry
Love is letting go
Have to give up everything
To love each other

Mother who gives life 
To a child suffers much
Word love is misunderstood
Misused so much

Bond by the soul

I once thought that I knew what happiness was like, but I was mistaken. Forwhy I have found how it does feel to be really happy, truly happy, nothing fleeting, only last night.

In the night when she came to me, in my cave made of barred windows and closed curtains, locked doors and dimming light, where is always almost dark, light shone and life flowed into me when she smiled and blissful words were said by her. A night of wonders when I sought her arm across the bed and I held her hand as she held mine, the exchange of looks was the bonding of our souls.

The intertwining of our fingers, the strength of our grasp as if to never let go, made me realize that I was no longer alone, that I have found my place, a purpose, a home inside her heart to bath forever into her soul and warmth.

As my eyelids brought dark to my sight, I have seen ourselves in the Future, together. She and I. Now, to grow old by her side is my only wish from what is left of this life, to make this glimpse of the Future a truth is what I have to live for.

When they see us, they may see two people, yet, we will be just one for we are bond to the soul. She and I. I love you.

Done For Good

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

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

What Is Love All About

WHAT IS LOVE ALL ABOUT

inquiring minds want to know
what is love all about
what does love mean 
what is the definition of love
love is such an easy word to say 
so many people have no idea what love is all about

when a woman says she loves you 
does she mean she loves what you have
does she want what you possess
does she believe you owe her her dreams
does she really love you for you

when a man says he love you
does he mean he loves the way you look
does he want to be sexually satisfied
does he enjoy your cooking
does he really love you for you

if love were so binding then divorce would not happen
perhaps love has nothing to do with marriage
does divorce happen when you get to know your mate
why do people come apart 
was love in their heart from the start

ask yourself do I love her because she loves me
or do I love her because I love her

or do  people really believe in the marriage vows that they say
on that special day

I don’t have the answers I only ask the question

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

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

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

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

Love Left Behind

I gave you my HEART,
My FAITH,
My HOPE.
   And now i have nothing left.
I have no heart to feel.
   I have no faith to keep me going.
I have no hope to share.
   I can not take it back; because i gave it to you, to hold and keep.
I'm a life-less, Dead hearted mortal, who can no-longer feel nor love.
No-longer to feel butterflies in my stomach  as i see your wonderful, warm, caring smile.

Because i gave it all to you.
I left it all behind, so you can love me the way i did,
             And now you're gone.
          Only a memory in my head.

                        but my love for you is still the same.

Hear the Wedding Bells Toll

I walked down the countryside
and watched the rolling, green hills
and the curve of dirt road turned by an old mill,
the wood fences held the white stallions in,
and they looked at me, eyes black, and a mane pearl white.
Alas' two stallions off roamed the hills together
I smiled and imagined their love they shared.

As I came down the road,
I came to a town,
small with a large church in the center
and I heard the tolling of wedding bells.
I continued to walk
and the doors opened wide and a bride and groom
stepped out hand and hand,
smiling and proud.
I stopped and looked at them.
The bride looked at me and smiled... I tipped my hat to her,
and she came over to me and handed me her bouquet of white roses,
she beautiful and kind with her smile,
I looked at the groom, her new husband, her true love,
and I announced my happiness for them.
They kissed and left on a carriage, pulled by two white stallions.

Love be so true,
and love be so kind,
love so honest and so beautiful,
holy and glorious,
such beauty in marriage,
such lovely sounds of the rich tolling of wedding bells.
I continued down and entered a pub,
alas' I bought a whiskey and drank in celebration,
too the newly weds,
and I sang a cheerful tune,
and I could still hear the beautiful tolling of Wedding Bells.
Love is so beautiful.

Our Poem

Tonight we will start our poem
We will grab ahold of each other, writing love letters.
We will kiss, letting the words flow from our mouths
We will hug, giving the stanzas room to roam
We will embrace each other, giving rhythms to rhymes
We will love each other, giving meaning to letters on a page

A SPECIAL LOVE

                                        A SPECIAL LOVE

A love that begins and a love that ends
Two people that were more then friends.

The summer was over and Fall was here
My heart would pound when he was near.

We fell in love with each other over the winter
A spring time wedding and our love is the center.

On our wedding day he couldn't be found
It broke my heart and I fell to the ground.

It killed my love and I lost my trust
For him it was true love not just lust.

I knew there was another man for me
If I looked hard enough there he'ld be.

My Thoughts

I thought by now that I would have 
traveled down the aisle of matrimony
I thought by now that a silver band would 
have been placed upon my finger
I thought by now that there would have 
been well wishes and a honeymoon
I thought by now that there would be, well 
you know how it goes


Thought...hmmmmmmm

Well, his ways are not my ways, his 
thoughts are not my thoughts
It's all about his timing

So, I'll wait with the thoughts that God 
loves me so much that he has kept
me for that special someone

My Thoughts...

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.

Your Wedding

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

Kissed by the waking sun, the rain of the night becomes undone,
I dream of you, my daily day dream; and the day has just begun
Riding up to Dahisar, I reach yonwards on my bike
Adieux I've bid to bachelorhood, looking forward to our petty fights
No other can fill my life, only you my wife; my lovely snow-white.

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

Wedding Day Happiness

Black or white, blue or green
Tuxedos make a handsome scene
When their by the side of 
A pretty girl that they love
Dressed in lace and silky print
There is not a single hint
Of sadness in this great place
A memory you wont erase
From your mind, heart even soul
Of this wonderful great stroll
That will join you hand in hand
Words and gestures soft and grand
That join two hearts in a union
No one will ever be losing
As the preacher asks of you
To say your sincere "I Do's"
And your sweet lips gently kiss
On this day of joyful bliss 
That will last for many years
Lots of good times to be shared

A walk to remember

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

LOVELAND

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

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.

A Precious Wife… Jesus has brought to me the gift of eternal life… And has greatly blessed me with a beautiful wife! Help me Lord to not be deceived by other things I see… May I continue to love the wife you gave to me!

Sincere Beauty

She stands there with a 
perpetual magnitude,
Vibrant as an orchid; tranquil 
like a summer breeze.
With a gracious smile she 
opened heaven gates.
My heart pounds with anxiety 
as I gazed into her eyes.
Immensely captivating like dark 
hooks for the soul.
Absorbed by her beauty, my 
mind ponders in soliloquies.
Her iris blooms sincerity 
I see my future in an instant
Tethered to faith, we become 
one in the eyes of our God.

love made in heaven

                                       (3/8/13)

The angels gathered in heaven to witness our wedding day
For this was a match made in heaven as they came together to pray
Long before our births-GOD had made this plan
And he had all the angels give a helping hand.
Both of us was born with a half filled heart
For the other half “was completely torn apart”.
He showed us the aches and pains of how love can be
But little did we know- it was part of our destiny.

We both had a part that we knew would never give in
And each battle we fought we would always win.
We knew that one day we would meet our soul mate
And in this belief we had a lot of faith.
The LORD chose our meeting to be an accident that we did not foresee
For he left it to the angels for you to come to me.

Who would have thought that two cars colliding would send our hearts flying?
Never would I have believed in love at first sight, but you captured my soul
And sent my heart in flight.
Two years together and it’s now our wedding day, and this is the moment
Of which I had always prayed.

Sunshine And Roses


We belong together like sunshine and roses
And the raindrops can be our wedding bands
What will they think when the sunshine proposes
To a rose who wears a wedding ring without hands

The birds and bees will sing about the flower and the sun
The weeds will object, and say that it's just wrong
The moon speaks up and says what's done is done
As the birds and bees continue with their song

The trees will all be waving their limbs to wish us well
As the shade provides us with a marriage dance
The ivy says it's unnatural and that they're gonna tell
But even the ivy can't poison this romance

We belong together like sunshine and roses
I'll shine the light so your beauty can be seen
They will marvel at the love my light exposes
Then they'll know for sure what love should really mean

Are we ready to say I do?
Or say good-bye?

I'm just not sure whether to go back?
Or keep marching forward?

Don't know whether these are my directions.
Give me time to think.
If you can't wait, move on.

My Special Day

I wish you could be there,
On my special day,
To be there when I wake up,
To hold me in your arms,
To whisper words of advice.

I wish you could be there,
On my special day,
To kiss my cheek,
To straighten my veil,
To tell me I’m beautiful.

I wish you could be there,
On my special day,
To help me out of the car,
To walk with me down the aisle,
To give me away.

But I know you’ll be there,
In the most important place,
Kept safely in my heart,
And in the hearts of our family,
And I know you’d be so proud,
On my special day.

Midnight Wedding


Black velvet sky with diamonds aglow,
Nature's serenade surrounds.
A gossamer breeze begins to blow,
Embracing young lovers around;
Their feet scarcely touching the ground.

The fragrance of love was in the air,
The language was being spoken.
Each soft caress, the kiss that they shared,
Became a treasured token;
Let not their bond be broken.

Young they were and full of dreams,
Dreams of a life together.
They spoke their vows 'neath moonlight streams,
Pledging their love forever;
Their hearts' most joyous endeavor.

But now I do know and it feels good to tell you how I really feel about you, you make my heart sing when you hug me tightly. You make my heart melt when you whisper in my ear. I love it when you whisper in my ear and say everything will be okay when I’m crying in your arms. I love how you don’t care what anybody else says about us being together. I love you forever and always.

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.

Glow

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

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

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

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

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

Life has given me Suki.

Nude
Beauty in its purest form stands for me
Clothes drop for only my blue eyes to see,
Which Angel or God created this woman? 
Or did Satan make you to tempt us men?
Either way I'm lost in your perfection,
I don't know where to start your inspection!
Crafted so well I just want all of you!

Oh love I'm amazed by this sexy view
Now I must admit a secret so true!
You're my living temptation, thus it's rude,

I want to dance
For you have supplied my ever need

My need is YOU LORD
You are the Lover of my soul
You are the embrace my heart desires
You are sweetness to my lips
You are the Kiss of dawn that makes my eyes shine
you are the stars that make my eyes twinkle
You are the light of day and the moon at night
That lightens my way and makes my load light
You are the oil of my Joy
You are my souls steadfast love fulfilling all I need
And soon you will come for your bride
And we shall be - ONE

the wedding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wedding Day

A woman dressed in purity
A man dressed in truth
Together they vowed their love
Together they showed their faith
God’s miracle in work
Two souls entwined
Held in His hands

Words of such beauty
Echoed in God’s house
Tears shed for happiness
Flowed from all
What a love shared
Between the groom and bride

Dana and Diane
So deserving of the other
Their hearts of gold
Fitted to perfection
At last was found
Their hearts’ missing piece

A life as one
Just beginning
Struggles may come
Their faith in each other 
Will never fail
 
How glorious was their day
Of love, purity, truth and faith
How impossible it was to miss
The Lord’s blessed kiss
Upon their hearts, upon their souls
On the day of eternal love

For the one i love

My heart is small 
but my love is great
My head cant fathom this debate
Of why i love you
and how much i do

But understand this i do
I would even say more than words do
because words cant explain
how beautiful are your eyes
when they shine like fire

And the feelings i get when i see you
make me want to be with you my whole life through
and when we before God all mighty say I do
Because now and for ever i love you

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!

An Afghanistan Wedding

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

THIS IS ME

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

KARMA

My mind lost in thought, I see him from across the room.
The deep ponder I was in ends with a provocative move.
I knew I was going to approach him with a skill tongue.
However, I am very shy when meeting someone so handsome.
He seems to be staring directly at me.
He smiles and I turn to look at him intensely.
He lips hello and I do the same.
We will meet in this crowded lobby today.
He hangs up from his call on his cell phone.
He begins to walk toward me purposely. 
I know he would introduce himself tersely.
I did the same with confidence.
We knew at first glance we were attracted.
Exchange of contact information was done.
We are now happily married and deeply in love.

A Bride's Confession

Little did you know, I was falling for you.
Torn and confused, I don’t know what to do.
Given that I am about to be wed,
Sooner or later, this feeling should end.

This invisible love may not be known,
But I know through my deeds, t’was already shown.
Seeming to beat like it has its own mind,
My heart doesn’t want to leave you behind.

I would always cherish your smile and your face;
I would always long for your warm embrace.
Indeed by tomorrow, I will be his,
But you will remain to be my bliss.

Someone to love

I want to be Happy when you walk down the aisle

I want it to be you who Returns my smile

I want to be breathless  as you pass all the pews

I want the pleasure of really meaning I do

My life is one i want to spend with you

Someone who will see what the world doesn't

And help me up if i ever lose my footing

Someone who wont quit on me a year down the road

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

Someone who will keep me warm when I am cold

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

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

Someone I would gladly die for n never ever run

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

And to see our dreams come true...

Revelation: curtain call

Revelation
 
As I began to write, my mind paces back and forth;
With comprehension comes thoughts of discernment, henceforth;
Vivid pictures of togetherness, flashes before my eyes;
An epiphany reminds one "blindness was unwise";
Through ignorance we misconstrue intentions of sincerity;
As I reminisce, your touch was truly a rarity:
From here on, sweet love and care is the way onwards
No more fights, romance shall be straightforward;
Visions of you and I, so crystal clear;
Your unconditional love visible through a tear;
Through endless worries i can feel your pain;
Try to understand, we ain't all the same;
The only girl in the world, my expression to you;
Dreams of eternity nothing more than true;
To your hearts content, I will please you like no other, my way;
Talking, holding or loving you each and every day;
Actions speak louder than words so here I am on bended knees;
I pop the question with a nerve raking please;
These aren't just words nor is it flirtation;
Baby girl, forever more as my wife is the revelation;

The Wedding

Treasure this day, a day of joy and bliss,
A triumph of love,
Now sealed with a Kiss,

On this day of eternal devotion, Church bells ring,
Slowly, people stroll along and finally gather,
But we forget the important thing,
That the daughter lets go of her dependence on her father,

A rush of memories, a flood of emotion,
A midst the family members and all the commotion,
An instance of tranquility, beauty and peace from the church doorway, she 
begins to emerge,
With a bouquet of flowers and a gown of lace,
She walks down the aisle, leaving a rose petal trace,
Together forever their love will bind, their love will connect,
The significance of this moment is quite simple in fact,
It’s a sign that she’s following her heart,
Blushing as red as the rose, she knows that nothing will lead them apart,

For in each other they found trust, beauty and devotion,
As if magic, yet no one has a love potion,
From a friendship to a partnership,
to a life long relationship,

Enjoy this day for it's your own,
Embark on this adventure,
In companion with each other never now alone,
May your lives always be happy and loving whilst facing your new found future,
Happy Wedding Day : Vas & Antoni

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.

A Trinidad wedding story

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Celtic Love

      CELTIC LOVE
The paths I take under the eye of god
and universe, but some consider odd
Great mother Dana, knowing everything,
help us to grow, into a birth of spring,
and know from where our lonely feet have trod.

In Celtic roots, from shores of Normandy
we came from long ago, a time called history,
made weary from the Roman and his sword
in seeking vengance, as if they were lord,
and Ireland is where we chose to be.

They layed to waste all things we'd ever known
spared not one child with their hearts of stone
and Caeser put us out to where we choose to be
in Ireland, an emerald upon the sea,
to where, great mother, only you had known.

The Wicca way, so deep out of our past
now comes of age, as if a spell were cast
to love all things, and have you at my side,
the only place where two in love can hide,
here in the only dream to ever last.

You'll be as much a part of me
as anything in life could ever be,
and we shall honor all and everything,
each to it's own, our destiny might bring,
and everything in life we'll ever see.

Forget my name, remember just my way
of loving you both ev'ry night and ev'ry day
you'll have it all, if you can realize,
all you could want is here deep in my eyes,
and all you need is here, and here to stay.

Zenith Of Our Love In The Clouds

One day clouds will play in the earth
We pilfer a son of sky and fled away
We can then touch life and death,
Design,protect their way
No death!Our cradle of love will sway.

When death come never shy!
Hold me tight
On the back of winged horse we will fly
Your love,devil cause to fight
Even if we court defeat,on the earth it will always be night.

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.

True Love indeed

To Love someone with all your hear is one thing
To love someone with all you have is another thing
To love some with all you could be is so sweat
But to Love each other to the point you can't live 
without one another it is true love indeed.

A DREAMT EVENT FOR THE NEWLY-WED

A dreamt event
for the newly-wed,
both looking sharp;
how many hand-written invitation cards
have they sent
with the reddest heart and lovely words? 


Down the church isle they will go with a tight-sealed tounge;
an organist will play the famous wedding song...
be ready to greet them with wide smiles,
despite your approval or disapproval, don't show your intent! 
Oh, never try to crash a dreamt event 
for the newly-wed, you may get unpleasant surprises
from that priest or reverend performing the holy matrimony!
Be quite and listen, or don't bother to attend the cerimony!  


Some envious eyes fix their manacing, inappropiate glances
on them...dreaming of what could have been;
why can't anyone openly admit their sin?
Don't be a pretender and continue the dance,
anyone can sense those thoughts of anger
and resentment...why are you looking so ghostly?
Let go of all stupidity and don't use puffery...
congratulate them with a cheerful toast and a hearty laughter!


A dreamt event 
for the newly-wed,...
kissing passionately
without embarassment,
but as others watch with contentment...
the flower girls follow them gracefully 
as they hear the wedding bells at twelve!

That Cherished Night With Him Will Be Beautiful

Perfection and peace,
Our love fills the air,
He's holding me here,
He's touching me there.

His grasp is so gentle,
His love holds me strong,
His truthfulness binds me,
Inspires my song.

In His word it claims,
That they will not fear,
When both of them naked,
Both their hearts are clear.

This love is so pure,
It drifts through our auras,
We shant be afraid,
With our futures before us.

His hand down my back,
His breath in my ear,
Us both in this room,
We're not leaving here.

He bites on my neck,
He nibbles my chest,
We lay in this bed,
and we shall not rest.

This beauty it bonds us,
We will never leave,
It's miracles like this,
That makes me believe.

Its funny

It’s funny how I deny that I love you
But isn’t it true?
That I do love thee….
In my fantasy
And so, I cooked your dinner,
Made your bed,
And prepared your bath water
How funny!
That I should be in love with you
In a fantasy of course!
In reality I know too well
That we can never be.
In my world, 
I know I am married to you-
A fake priest, a fake wedding gown,
Fairies for my bridal party
And yeah, a wedding that never is-
It’s funny how I like it in my world
It’s funnier how it can never be in reality
What is even funnier, 
Is that I let the fantasy last thirty minutes 
While in a van to work!

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.

Come into my world

Look into my eyes 
And the blessed skies;
You will see they are true and 
blue,
Always glowing and focused on 
you.

Look into my hands
And the virgin lands; 
You will see they are full of golds 
and goodies,
Always there to quench your 
thirst and longings.

Look into my heart 
And the colurful kite;
You'll see they are always up 
above,
Always flying higher as you toss 
it with your true love.

Come into my life
And join this legal strife;
We'll be sentenced not with hard 
labour 
But to life imprisonment with 
love and favour

Never make me cry 
Do not say goodbye;
Till the shadows divide
Always be with me , even amidst 
the tide.

Uplifting

Pink's the color of your lips
That I softly gently kiss
When your in my arms so tight
With hugs lasting morning and night

Pink polish being carefully
Put on so I can look pretty
For this special loving day
Of feelings that will always stay

Flowers of pink, yellow and blue
On tables as we say "I DO"
Looking in each others eyes
Knowing our love will never die

Pink frosting on our wedding cake
Being mushed in both our face
As we start our life together
A love no one can ever sever

Lace of pink upon my dress
To match the flower in your vest
Two people looking clean and neat
Sharing a love that is so sweet

There are colors everywhere
That make people stop and stare
But pink will always be the one
That means the most and makes life fun

Real Love: A poem to celebrate Sam and Charlotte's Wedding

Real love is not always easy to find,
Although it is always easy to see,
Today through this ceremony it shined,
As two people became one family.

Real love through hard times will always survive,
It gets stronger with the more hits it takes,
When things get dark it’s always there alive 
It never lies, never hides, never fakes. 

Real love is the stars in a winter’s night,
It is all the words that have never been said,
It is an inextinguishable light,
Its first taste is like you’ve never been fed.  

Real Love fends life's strife like a river dam,
And it is here now in Charlotte and Sam.

Cousins Wedding

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

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

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

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

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

wedding

A group of ladies by the stand pipe
While the tassa men play their tune
This is the lawa morning
I getting marry this afternoon

A bunch of foreigners clapping
And their mom drinking coconut water
They come from the Middle East
Because I marrying her daughter

My wedding suit hanging in the closet
Made by ram mohess tailoring
Riad gone for ice by the round about
And the family home busy cooking

Roger and them boys down stairs
Sugar bring out a case of rum
Shirley and rianna join the lawa
Dancing to beat of the tassa drum

They wouldn’t let me see her
My beautiful bride to be
And her family in the kitchen
Tasting curry goat and dhalpurie

They have she down by nazim in penal
Three days I didn’t get to see her
And Suzy calls to say they leaving
And junior driving the wedding car

Curry goat, chicken, alloo and channa
Curry mango and nice hot kuchela
And the best roti in Trinidad
From uncle Jap up in Marabella

Roger packing his fridge and freezer
Cause Julie bring some bee,s ice cream
The whole place buzzing with excitement
Today I marrying the of my dreams

Family and friends come from allover
Texas, New York, UK and Canada
Omg she looks so beautiful
Coming out the wedding car

Here she stands in next to me
The woman that will share my life
And today before god, friends and family
We become husband and wife

I feel happy, but still I’m very sad
Because I wish my father was here
But I know he is up in heaven
Looking down from somewhere

Come Nightfall

Everything glitters at night
Moonshine will pull all that you own into question
Like daylight never could;
You’re a coward
I’m a faggot and a fake
And I can’t think of one reason 
Why I deserve the shirt I’m wearing
I wish it were a tourniquet
So I could glimmer
Shine
Glitter in the light of the world
Like everything does
come nightfall.

You THINK?

You think you might be in love.

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

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

You think a lot, you worry a lot. 

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

Now that there is something to think about.

My Winter Wedding Dream

He looks at me
in his suit of white
with that calm smile upon his face
he is a marvelous sight

people all around me look
but their faces I can't see
in this winter wonderland
he's the only one for me

I almost run toward him
with excitment my cheeks warm
except my father's right beside me 
holding tightly on my arm

upon arriving at the alter
I pull a white rose from my bouqet
then I lean toward my father
and as I place the rose I say

"Daddy it's okay now
you can let go of my arm
with this man here beside me
I will not come to any harm"

a smile spreads across his face
but there's tears within his eyes
as he gives me to the man I love
afterward he replies

"I know you'll be okay
but I'll be here anyway
if you ever need any help
just call me night or day"

with that he turns away
and takes a seat below
then I turn to the man
who's face is all aglow

looking at this man's face
I feel as if in a dream
with all these emotions in my head
I don't know whether to laugh or scream

with a laugh I say I do
somthing in his eyes glow
then after a kiss that ends to soon
my HUSBAND and I turn to go

outside the church the sun shines bright
such a glorious sight to see
but in this winter wonderland
he's the only one for me

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.

I Love You

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

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

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

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

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

Bewitched

The fairer sex
How fair they aren't
When courting is in question
The fairer sex
How good they are
At beguiling and deception

Yet so in depth
Their traps prepared
Beauty - a treacherous invention
I think I know
Their ins and outs
Still this is no protection

From evil spells
For wedding bells
Will cloud your best perception
And in a trice
Your gagged and bound
In an altarly direction

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 search is On

Are you the one, the bride I try to find? 
Still haven't met you, how can I make up my mind? 
How am I to know? How am I to decide? 
Waiting for the questions to get demystified 
I know that I am patient; I know that I can wait 
Not for ever though, it doesn't work out like that 
I am sure it'll help me find some answers if we go out on a date.

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

A Hollow Feather as an Exclamation Point

I am flying
I am screaming over the world with a light heart
Eternity just seems inadequate tonight
Just lying here so unaware of everything
This is so much more than nothing 
These stars came out just for us

I can't think of anything other than you here with me


Details | Free verse | |

Forgive, please forget

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

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.

True love

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Daddy's Elite

Sun run red across the sky
As the golden ore fadeth in the twilight
The earth was clothed in a cloak of dye
As bright stars ushered in the limelight

The tress then chants a song and thus pray
They swayed their heads gently and whispered
When in the morning chased the night away
Their voices whispered and prospered

“Daddy’s precious Cinderella
More fairer than Gabriella
Bring in His precious Elite
Clothed in her choicest suit”

The Elite is Daddy’s only delight
She is among many her favorite fruit
Alive with color and full of light
Prepared as a bride adorned in a wedding suit

Daddy when in the morning comes issues an invitation
To His Elite and His gracious bride
“Yea! Thou art the bridegroom’s adoration
His Glory, Excellency and pride

So worthy my Son to be thy bridegroom
Make haste my Elite, the groom is come already
Bring in my Elite into the grooms refined room
Love the groom and be thou steady”.

for you see though you may have one good day,
 many bad days filled with dark emotions shall follow,
however you see,
even though your in a bad spot,

not evan death can remove them from you,

Wedding Vow

Today begins a union blessed
By heaven’s gentle hands,
And as my feelings do suggest
Its strength eternal stands.

Into your eyes, my lover sweet
I’ll stare with great regard,
For mine do burn with ardent heat
Behind them once so scarred.

But turmoil’s charring disappeared
Upon the sight of you,
And moments forth I have revered
The passion since imbued.

Beneath this arch of Springtime buds
And Winter’s ivory lace,
My body’s true emotion floods
With visions of your face.

Into your softened hands I’ll place
A golden ring of truth,
And signaling His vestal grace
I’ll kiss your tender youth.

Yet when your countenance does gray
With wrinkled shades of time,
My lover’s blush shall not astray
I’ll think you more sublime.

And when I fall to final sleeping
You may learn to trust,
That our love I am safely keeping
Risen from my dust.

For you, my love, are truly mine
Forever from this day,
And together we combine
Life’s beautiful bouquet.

So as a blooming flower shines
In May when it’s anew,
To you, my dearest love divine,
I proudly say, “I do.”

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...

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

You Were Right in Front of Me

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

the wedding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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.
Who knew?

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.

Her love saved my life....
so flew to her , to ask
please be my wife 
She replied , yes, Yes!
I love you forever 
and want a wedding dress!

First ACROSTIC poem ever written for my wife...
methinks it is good enough to give her...
I just saw this is my 200th poem! How wonderful that it is
 dedicated to my wife and about her saving me!
Couldn't be better if I had planned it!!!

Can you believe it?
His passion and devotion,
They will never split.

The way he sees her
Still fresh with fascination?
It will last I’m sure.

Anniversary

September 2

So handsome you were, 
so pretty me 
hot 
real hot 
hottest day of the year 
four in the afternoon 
we sizzled our way up the aisle

I giggled through the I do's 
It's what I do when I'm nervous 
You didn't flinch 
but you squeezed my hand. 
You were solid 
We were solid 
It was hot.

Shiny and bedazzled 
smiles so radiant you still need sunglasses 
just to look at the pictures.

You'd think we'd have known 
with our fine educations 
that objects will assume the temperature of their surroundings 
unless energy is added. 
Some things you can learn in a classroom. 
Others take experience. 
Free thinkers and skeptics need more of the latter 
so we lived in defiance 
of thermodynamics 
a perpetual motion machine.

But Joule was right. 
Winters were bitter 
frozen 
motionless 
grey.


You quit squeezing my hand. 
I quit giggling. 
You became hollow. 
We became hollow. 
so hollow that when 
I recalled a giggle one day 
you flinched. 
The icy shell shattered.

The heat of the explosion 
was only enough 
to melt the shards, 
slowly wept away, 
fresh blood of casualty in the wake.

Bathed in experience's lessons 
healing salts of time 
scabs give way to tender scars 
and feeling reemerges. 
I noticed it this summer 
the warmth. 
It's been hot.

May you feel it, too, 
and be 
Happy.

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.

On A Day Long Ago

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

I WILL MARRY YOU

Baby, when u left in 1982
My heart felt empty and few
I searched far and deep
I lack good manner of sleep

When I did find you
I felt joy’s Triumphant to be next to you
But the time was not due
For you were involved, not true?
I bowed my head and flew

Never giving up on my love for you
My heart felt-faith was always new
We met sporadically during the years
I relate and showed you all my cares

But yet the time was not right 
With the divine bringing together of our being
But you finally and humbly accept my feelings
And asked me to marry you…

My love for you baby is eternal and true
Baby, yes, I will marry you.

A Love Connection

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

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

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

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

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

I Do

I DO

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

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

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

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

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."

What is Love

What is love?
What’s it like to fall in love?
Between two people in love
For it indeed comes from above

They do nothing to deserve it
It indeed must be a gift
For only God could give
Such love to stop them going adrift

On their wedding day they promised
To be faithful and true
To cherish and show mercy
For always ever and anew

So back to the original question
How can we define love?
Only God can provide the answer
For His love perfectly fits the glove

God loves marriage to prosper
Between two people so much in love
His divine plan of marriage
Really began in heaven above

I can see it Now

After a long day, I'm walking alone in this alley,
I saw you, you smiled, you look good even if your hair looks messy.
right then & there, we met.
Just the perfect timing, the date & time was set.

And here we are today on our first date,
holding hands, talking and laughing, this is definitely fate.
months passed, & I've fallen deep.
you whispered "Our love is what I'll keep".

One rainy afternoon,we kissed.
It's a moment I don't wanna miss.
like a three yrs. old I shouted "take me away."
after the rain,comes a rainbow & you said "wait & stay."

a year has passed and we've been through a lot lately.
I can see it now, you & me in eternity.
will it be possible to be w/ you as long as I want to?
nothing last? then what should I believe into?

You called me one weary night,
you said "Don't give up on me, be w/ me tonight."
I looked outside the window & I saw you waiting,
I ran downstairs, it was what I was hoping.

 It's 10pm, we're walking in the streets, It's just you & me.
you grabbed my hand & said "close your eyes & count 1-3."
"one,two,three.." & I saw fireworks in the sky.
I hugged him & whispered "I want to fly."

He just smiled, knelt & asked "Will you marry me?"
I said "YEAH,only if you FLY w/ ME." =)
I can see it now, my future w/ you.
knowing you'll be around, I won't feel blue.

An Unexpected Proposal

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

My Pulse, My Heart

With this heart of mine,
To show you love.
A crown on my princesses head,
To show our loyalty.


Let these hands of ours,
Show our friendship forever.
Let these words I speak,
Forever be true.


You're my pulse, my heart,
And I love you.

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.

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.

The Rarest of Gifts

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

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

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

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

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

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

We walked in oak cliff

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

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

Divorce!!....My thoughts-

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now I wonder....

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


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

Will and Kate

There is a wedding in old London town
A handsome man and his radiant bride
Ivory silk made up her graceful gown.
A merry throng had gathered in the street
To see the carriage in which they would ride
They cheered to the rhythm of marching feet
The bells are ringing out the happy news
To tell the world a prince now has a wife
With waving flags of red, white and blues
The man who shall be king has found his queen
And together they stand in love and life
As one to face the joys as yet unseen
There is a wedding in old London town
The bells are ringing out the happy news

sometimes some things just become a haze
I wish I could see myself the way you see me

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

Forget the Meaning of Fear

Does your tongue drip sweet nothings,
Do they drip from thy forked tongue like honey?
Do your dreams haunt you even when you awake,
Are the ones of me hardest for you to shake?
Do your blue eyes sparkle even amidst pitch black,
How hot is your passion when I begin to arch my back?
Do your kisses blaze a sizzling trail down the length of me,
Will you ever let me be?
Does your passion burn hotter when I defy you,
If yes, good, it was intended to.
Do you miss the scent of my perfume,
When dark forces doth loom?
Do you miss the sweetness of my kiss,
Come on, baby, tell me what you miss!
Do you miss the warmth of my deliciously sweet softness,
When people ask is that the reason for your aloftness?
Do you become enflamed at just the thought of my downy skin,
Is that when you want to learn the true meaning of sin?
When I melt into your arms,
Is that when you find your well hidden charm?
Of course I know the answers but I want to hear them from your lips,
As we sway together hip to hip.
I want you to hold me until the moon and stars disappear,
And until I forget the meaning of fear.

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

The Dress

I saw a glimpse of her wedding dress,
she stepped barefoot on the shore grass.
The sea roared like at Venus’s birthday,
Milky foam covered the wave’s way.
 
A cherub flew between us with haste.
The whirlwind playing around her waist
Lifted his lost feathers, round like a bell,
Her face rosy, her gaze blazed and fell,
 
She saw me spying and from above
Shadows came dressing her with love,
Raindrops covered her youthful face,
Blessing us against a vile disgrace:
 
A wedding dress remains a mystery,
even if in a foreshadowing  reverie.

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

Only You

In my eyes, you’re the only one I see
In my mind, all day you’re holding onto me.
And most importantly…
In my heart you’re the one for me…
Ooh baby, you’re the one for me.


We wait for regal washing waves,
I stand on a boat in your arms
Barefoot on sand, exploring caves,
Though it rains you keep me warm.

We visit an island in a canoe,
Raindrops disturb the tender soul,
Under a willow together with you,
Trails never been seen, we stole,


In my eyes, you’re the only one I see
In my mind, all day you’re holding onto me.
And most importantly…
In my heart you’re the one for me…
Sweetheart, you’re the one for me.


When I wake up to your voice, or see you running through the grasses,
When we’re walking hand-in-hand, or together cutting classes,
When we laugh beneath the trees or count ladybugs in the stream,
When I watch you kick around the leaves, or I feel you when I dream,


In my eyes, you’re the only one I see
In my mind, all day you’re holding onto me.
And most importantly…
In my heart you’re the one for me…
My darling, you’re the one for me.


You entice with roses at no cause,
Rescue me in the early morn,
Together we aimlessly search for stars,
For you on this earth I’d be reborn.

In pale sheets soft and scented of you,
You know not how perfect I feel,
You tell me beautiful, you make it true,
I fear I dream, yet you are real;


In my eyes, you’re the only one I see
In my mind, all day you’re holding onto me.
And most importantly…
In my heart you’re the one for me…
Ooh my love; you’re the only one, for me.

Father of the Bride

All brides are lovely on their wedding day.
But she glows with her upswept auburn hair,
and her blue eyes sparkling under her veil.
He steps back and takes a mental snapshot.
He never wants to forget this moment.
She looks one last time at her reflection,
and with a deep breath, calmly takes his hand.
He has happily awaited this day,  
and he has dreaded this day since her birth.
This father is filled with mixed emotions.
He smiles at his daughter with teary eyes.
She kisses his cheek as the music starts.
"Procession of Joy" echoes in his ears.
All eyes are fixed on the beautiful bride,
but his eyes watch his future son-in-law. 
He looks closely for the groom's reaction.
The nervous groom radiates with true love ~
a smile of joy as sweat beads from his brow,
and Dad smiles knowing his daughter chose well.
A father could want nothing more than this.

''Petals Of Love''

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

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.

The Ornament

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

a possession of stars

so cherished you are
a possession of stars
the galaxy's mass
confined in my heart

so cherished the pride
a sky open wide
folds in a pocket
soft in my side

So cherished the bliss
a ocean's abyss
weight of the deep
contained in a kiss

so cherished the night
all mountains of height
bend over trees
witness the sight

so cherished you are
possession of stars
the galaxy's vast
space in my heart

The final destiny

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The big day

The day you have waited for, is here it seems
The day you marry the girl of your dreams.

No time for nerves, no time time to worry
Take your time getting sorted
No need to hurry.

Getting suited and booted
The excitement kicks in
Make sure the best man has both of the rings.

Tis nearly time, time to depart
A beer at the bar, its only the start!

The service starts at half past 2
Your taking your vows and saying   
 'I DO'

Speak loud and clear
Don't forget to smile
As you walk your new bride down the wedding aisle.

Enjoy the day, soak it all in
Deliver your speech with a big cheesy grin!

It's time to party, after your first wedding dance
Hold Your bride close like it's your only chance.

I hope that you both have a wonderful day
And in each other's arms, forever you'll stay.

The Art Of A Great Kiss

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

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

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

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

Wedding Bell

Cherry blossom has bloom in spring
So soft and so lovely, tied you with a string.
Don't you ever depart,
Don't you break my heart.

This ring I gave you
I promise to be true
Like diamonds are forever
You are all that matter.

Now that we are one
Things are not just fun
I waited for so long
Thanks God, we really belong.

'She Danced With Me First'

A father.

Is a daughter's partner.

Their Life is a dance.

Where he only gets one chance.

To lead her across the floor.

To turn her away from wrong doors.

Sometimes it twists and turns.

Both hearts burn.

With pain.

Then it's ok again.

They just sway.

The dance is slow.

Away they go.

Smiling.

And laughing.

Then another change.

The steps, the beat all rearrange.

But they find a way.

In time they stay.

With the beat.

Their eyes meet.

He couldn't love her more.

As they move across the floor.

A man steps in, says dance with me.

Now she's his wife to be.

Dad lets go.

Goes with the flow.

He doesn't hate or curse.

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

Tie the knot

Being with you
in your grace,
this feeling of love
can't be replaced.
You're gentle and trusting,
I admire your ways...
believe me love,
you drive me insaine!
So, let us unite,
let us close the deal;
your love and thought 
Is all I can feel.
Thank you for all
the time we've shared.
Now let's make it forever
and have our love be declared!

A Wedding Day Rhyme

June through August on any day
I do will be the words that you say
Do you lady take this man?
Do you fellow think you can?

Take this blushing beautiful bride
You say I do so full of pride
Love this woman till the end
And let her on you depend

Yes you can and more as well
You will do things that you cannot tell
Love her now and evermore
With all you’re heart of that you’re sure

Lead on down the life long track
No more will you be on you’re jack
But together all the way
As the love grows day by day

So a lady soon will be your wife
To share with you the rest of you’re life
To love you now of that you’re sure
And your marriage will endure

All the knocks, rows and grief
But in your love must be belief
So do not be late on August through June
Your wedding day can’t come too soon

Grandma's Attic

What better way to spend a rainy afternoon in May,
Than with Grandma in her attic where precious memories lay.
This was her treasure trove, cherished things dear to her heart,
About which she reminisced with us, delightful tales to impart!

She cuddled her yellowed wedding gown with a far-away look in her eye,
And told of Grandpa's tender love for her with a wistful sigh.
From a trunk she took a photo of them taken on their wedding day.
Even from the misty past, deep and abiding love it did portray.

A faded photograph showed Grandpa, so very handsome and grand,
In the uniform of his country, that he volunteered to defend.
She showed us Grandpa's army uniform, pride swelled within her breast.
She shed a tear holding the flag, presented when he was laid to rest.

She fondled a gold pocket watch that she gave him as a bride.
It ran for nigh on sixty years, mysteriously stopping when he died.
With trembling lips she kissed a golden pendant and had this to say,
"It was given to me by your Grandpa on our blissful wedding day."

She played a waltz on the old Victrola and whirled about the room.
Her eyes shone so brightly and her face assumed a youthful bloom.
Grandma is united with Grandpa now, they've ended their earthly quest.
With their love and traditions, our family was truly, truly blessed!

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.

Disillusioned

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

Your Kiss

Blonde hair
Eyes shade of blue
Hug sweeps me
Never knew
Knees shake
Hearts at stake
This kind of love
No recipe can bake

Know my words
Before I speak
Always the truth
Sometimes bleak
Make me laugh
When I'm down
Know what I like
Around town

Pizza Friday night
In and Out tonight
Simple things in life
Have a sweeter bite
Your kiss
Comforts my soul
All feelings of scared
They take a stroll

Never would knew
How to de-blue
Then I decided to date you
Never didn't I have to look
Your my prince charming from all the books
I get to be the little mermaid 
And emerge from a world of hooks.

Unconventional Bride

From a distance, she sees
the groom in sweat;
moist with tears,
his lips tremble.
At the pace of voices,
she marches;
line of gazes: her path.

The contrast of white
against red;
petals are swept
by her trail.
Behind the lace
she gets a glimpse 
of tomorrow
and yesterday.

She kisses her mother, who smiles;
as well as her father, who cries.
Then she reaches the arms
of the man:
august in coat and tie.

Together, they walk the road
made of velvet and wilted rose:
This day, they may be them,
but later, they will be one.

This moment, though, 
makes her break;
and mourn like facing death,
for the image of bells and doves

is a mere illusion in her mind.

Today, the coil will be worn,
though not by the lady
in this poem.
For she is the one
in the weathered bench
sitting together
with the wedding guests.

you may feel it but might not know

on my head, nestle a pair of doves, also white.

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.

My Lady Love

My rose, my soul, my heart's delight,
Such treachery this wintry night!
My fathers men hath taken thee
And I know not if thou'llst e're be free.

A spy was in the wood that day
When I met with thee and at last did say
How you set me alight with thy smile and thy voice;
How I'd gladly wed thee, were I given a choice.

The man heard my confessions and fled to the king
And said, "Noble sire, dire news I must bring!
Thy son the lord prince is smitten indeed.
But 'tis a peasant girl who has sown love's seed."

As prince I may not marry as I might wish.
Ah! wealth and pow'r are a bittersweet dish.
This is the reason thou wast sent away
But I will come swiftly as soon as I may.

By AnnikaOakinnA

I now gather men who'll support my endeavour,
Who're loyal to me, and we'll all stick together.
We'll whisk thee away, and then thee and I'll marry.
But we must do it quick, not a moment to tarry.

Once we are wedded in Our Father's eyes
My father shant dare bring about our demise.
He'll have to accept that one just can't stand by
And watch, as their love is dispatched to the sky.

And my love, thou'llt be queen! Ah! sweet heavens all bless.
Thou'll be marvelous indeed in thy coronation dress
As in any other, of any shape or hue.
Such is thy beauty, because, I love you.

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.

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.

Decided

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

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

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

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

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

The Web

The workings of soft, silk strides…
They are left by whom? The twice fourth eyes. 
Led souls to thy center of sanguine streams,
To one, words flow out to say what I mean.
In words of organic cords,
Be the melody of a key.
Todays for tonights,
Close eyed in company.
For in rain and in shine,
Twined with the warmth of canopy. 
How shall it burn within all of time,
For your love is all I see.
This and all my might,
It be you and only you.
No struggles or angered plights, 
The one who sees me through.
You found me like bright kites,
In the air, carried out to you.
For today I can sway in the wind of our days 
And glide together towards a life of two.
Where I can say,
I truly love you.

The Wedding Poem

Just to be happy is all you need 
not dreams of ambition or desire to succeed.	

Just to be happy always caring and kind
with love in your heart and peace in your mind.

Just to be happy in a warm embrace
no need to be cool or win any race.

Just to be happy no grey skies above
the sun always shining down on your love.

Just to be happy your whole life through 
Sharing true love, the way that you do.

HIDDEN UNTOLD SECRET

mild and fragile you were hidden,
unknown to the pain of rejection.
still new to the emotions of men,
untold feelings of reflection.
like unsung def tones never been heard;
with new deep meaning,
that could move and break even a tear.
an inspiration to the open eye,
soothing like a lullabye.
like a fairy tale never too old to tell;
too valuable to sell,
never to be priced,
free to be attached.
like a treasure that can't be bought,
it gives new sensation that can't be sold.
freely giving more choices to teh path you're taking in life,
so righteous in the sight of new light,
a dejavu managerie expression of the first time you ever fell.
trouble is I don't know when to stay down,
only love will tell...........!!!!
untold clear meaning of your emotions with no doubt.

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.

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
For we were made for one another

You do not know me but Marry me

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

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

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.

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.

Tree In The Wind

Today You're Getting Married
And There's Something I'd like to Say
Remember this Day Forever
And the Vows You Make Today

There Will Be Lots of Happy Times
And a Few That Make You Sad
But Always Be a Team
And Things Won't Be Too Bad

Always Take Time to Listen
And Remember the Love You Share
It's the Two of You Against the World
For Each Other...Always Be There

And the Times You Disagree...
Always Be Willing to Bend
You Don't Have to Break
Just Be like a Tree in the Wind

That's All I Have to Say
Except I Wish You Both the Best
And I Won't Worry about You
When They Lay Me down to Rest

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.

love

I arise in love with love it grows its fruit out of my wings love makes my heart sing, romance. love makes me selfless in a state of agape. love keeps me thinking in isolation, hoping in dejection. love makes me express on bed of roses entangled an intertwind in bliss woven passions that rejects lust, yet invites love. the necter is sweet as pleasures trancend and ravish my trinity oh love is faithfull, willing and definately able. oh definately able! Love existed before Cain killed Abel It will bring joy to it's possessors Captivating it's keepers Uplifter of weepers Bringing pleasure to those who express it, who grow it live it make it.

Tears of Joy

To the church on time I made it, 
though down the aisles I almost fainted.
With tears of joy we stood at the altered, 
our wedding vows we did not falter.

Through love expressed, 
a son we were blessed.
With tears of joy I held him in my arms, 
praying he would never be harmed.

Through God's grace, 
we three are saved.
With tears of joy we will meet again, 
when to heaven we ascend.

And I yearn to be able to hold you.

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

Love will stand

It takes time to fall in love;
It takes love to stand the time.
Through the changing times of life,
love changes the tides of time
and weather the storms of life.

Moments of joy and grieve may drift
in and out like sand on the seashore
but love is the solid rock on which
your marriage can anchor. 

The whims and caprices of emotion
may usher clouds of fear and doubt
but loves shines through like the sun
and keep your hearts and minds together.

Even when your matrimonial boat drifts far
offshore in the middle of confusion, against
the tempest of misunderstanding and despair 
trust love's compass to sail you back to the
shores of forgiveness and reconciliation.  

We fall in love when self, stoops and love stands.
Let self remain fallen and always, love will stand.

Spring

How dangerous is to dance
on the tiptop of a small petal,
spinning round and round,
imitating the wind’s sound?
A falling might be lethal,
but would you miss the chance
to be wedded this spring?
 
While reading a new poem,
I went astray in the wood
with my leather bound book.
I rested near a hushed brook,
I had no water, I had no food,
but I had only a real problem:
to be wedded this spring!
 
And before it is too late,
I will tell that this song
wasn’t about me or you,
but what together we do
cannot be ever wrong,
When we share the fate
to be wedded this spring.

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.

Occasionally I cry,
Overwhelming joy,

Must have been a saint in a past life,

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.

Wedding Band

It's new
It bounds one to another
It allows you to have the love of your life
Being able to keep them by your side forever
It may be just a piece of metal
But it means a lot to many 
A wedding band
A band that shows your love for someone
The band that is placed on your finger by the one who loves you most
A wedding band
The most treasurable piece of metal you own
A wedding band
The constant reminder you got the one who means everything
A wedding band
Is how you show your feelings to you significant other
The way to feel loved

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

   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

Blind Love

The romance between them female and male,
From her dying inside from all the pain.
Their love like a moon shining oh so pale, 
And them thinking they were going insane.

From the late nights of fighting and crying,
To the dates that went wrong in both their ways.
They both found out of each others lying,
And cheating that took place the past few days.

Punching and kicking, being tossed around,
The bruises, the blood, the black-and-blue eyes. 
She shouts and screams when she falls to the ground,
The neighbors don't help when they hear her cries.

But on the wedding day nothing is said,
And the truth came out when they found her dead.

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.

White Wedding Dress

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

But Alas..

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

Why me?..

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

Feeling it

You know i tried to play it down,

I tried to say i wasn't into this,

But deep down inside,

My body was really feeling it...

You know i tried to keep it quite,

tried to make myself seem cool,

But you didnt keep your eyes off me,

damn i must've looked like a fool.

We danced and i held your body close to mine,

I could feel every breathe,

Every move,

And you could just as easily feel mine.

After that it was all a big blur,

we where together all the time,

We soon started going out,

I wanted you to be all mine.

Now it's 2 years down the road,

So perfectly together, our lives seem to fit,

As we both take our vows,

My heart is really feeling it...

Tracey's Sonnet

Your eyes have made me see within the dark, 
See past the fear and sorrow in my life,
Your eyes a fire within my soul does spark,
This is the reason you should be my wife.
Your soul it seems has fused within my own,
Two lonely souls are now becoming one,
My purpose here on earth, your love has shown, 
Our hearts are now to join in unison.
I love to feel the calm in our embrace,
To feel the passion with every kiss, 
The world melts away when I see your face,
And life with you has been absolute bliss, 
Your beauty, strength and courage radiate,
And in my heart I know that this is fate!

He Pushed Me on the Ground

He pushed me on the ground
And then pulled me by my hair
I tearfully asked, ‘Is that why I married you?’
But he kicked me. That’s not fair!

I ordered him to stop
I asked him to set me free
And when nothing happened
I begged him ‘please’!

But he didn't stop
And I started to cry
Then I remembered my rights
Why not to give a try…!

I pushed him greatly
And succeeded
But he reattained the condition
And instantly defeated.

He blowed hardly on my face
That I was forced to bleed
And suddenly I woke from my nightmare,
‘What happened, my sweet..?’

Luke 12:27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and
tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!

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

Our Love Story PART 1

My granddaughters asked me one day
"Grammy, how did you date
Going to an all girl school
Wasn't it pretty hard for you?"

They were at that dating age
And figured they could trap me

I just told them with a smile 
I knew were I was going all the while 

I stayed in school
And got my teaching job
Near the H bar T spread
On Nebraska sod

The land lady invited the cowboy
From up the valley one eve
To come down for a little supper
And meet the new lady who was going to teach

We spent the evening playing double solitaire
An when he got ready to leave
I asked him, " Please
Can you put my saddle in the barn for me?"

Sunday found me busy at work
Getting ready for school to start

He stopped by and wanted to know
If to the roping club with him I'd go

I did go and from that day on
Wednesday night, Friday night, Saturday 
And Sunday's were our days, 
Work permitting.

He had been on his own since he was fifteen
And took special pride in his work
Sometimes in the evening if he had the time
 You just might find us on the phone line

Thanksgiving rolled around
And I went to Kansas to see my folks
And he went Wyoming to look at a ranch

On the way back he stopped by my place
I walked him to the car when he was ready to leave
And I told him, "I'm going to a wedding
On June Nineteenth."

He just looks at me and says 
"If I'm supposed to be there just let me know"

I did 
He did come
And we were forty seven years and two weeks
As one

When I got finished telling the granddaughters
Their mouths were open in shock

Grammy did you really do that
I said Yep
An that's how you 
Came about.

I told Billy about the girls and me
And he replied with a grin
"You know you're right
I never did ask you to marry me."


When Billy looks down on me from above
I kiss my wedding band with love
For on our wedding bands you'll find
The stars and the moon for all time

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.

Gothic Wedding

Today is the day.
A day we've been waiting for.
Cause in a few hours.
I will be all yours.

Red roses are everywhere,
and even in my hands.
Walking down the aisle.
Wearing black, not white.
Something that fits out lifestyles.
Something so unique.

We say our vows as we promise our lives as one.
We stand in front of families and friends.
We touch each others hearts,
and we seal a kiss for it all.

We dance in the moonlight to a song about death,
because we know our love will go on.
Our hearts , our souls are beautiful treasures,
and we will protect each other through it all.

The Eyes of her Beloved

This pink-faced blushing bride
explodes with wonderment,
joyously embracing the mystery
unfolding in each moment.

The white lace and satin obscure
her hidden history:
forgotten pain, 
broken promises,
and the gentle acceptance that
healed them all.

She steps forward with 
grace and ease, gazing into 
the eyes of her beloved.

Fearlessly, they plunge into
murky, unknown waters
and swim.

Valentine Dreams

Crystal-red-coloured rose pouring sweet scent into my nose;

That’s what you are, and more, my sweet muse.

The other night, vivid dreams of you I had

That made sleep feel like divine love:

 

You and me in a flowered prairie, with bright clothes.

I saw the bright sunlight jive alive in your black diamond eyes most true

That married your smile, as you told me you were glad

To be with me, smelling flowers and watching doves.

 

I was so glad! I can still feel how my heartbeat rose

When you told true tales of love as you’re used

To doing, with your hands in mine, your soft palms.

How much more can I thank the Orchestra above?

 

For this scene is all I’d have wanted, like exquisite prose.

From time to time, I’d look at you from behind (you’d excuse

Me!) and have nothing to add to the perfection you clad

And still do in reality! Perfect curves painted silken mauve!

 

I’s about to end the distance between our lips when I arose

Most sad to find all that was but a dream.

I’d have gladly gone back to the dream

But reality is worth a thousand dreams; so I left home

To meet the object of my every joyful prose

On this valentine morning so jocose.

Untitled 19

Look closely. What do you see? A white rabbit in snow. 
No? I’m the memory of a bride, wedded to eternity:
an extincting marriage. Draped in a pearl gown.
Laced to the throat. Dressed like some decadent uneaten cake,
ignore the teeth marks in the shadowed parts.
I was his bridal-feast and now I feast on white,
it’s in my breath and crackles in each bulbous vein. 
It eats me from the inside like an infection:
my white veil now my shroud. The crows gather, 
their pebbles eyes stare.

I’ll be the portrait of a bride, the hollow image,
slant-hanging in an echoing bedroom, the odour 
of rose petals masking the creamed bed.
Certainty can die in a heartbeat.
Search my lifeless, unblinking eyes,
wash your feet in their shallow waves-
these puddles can’t overflow, the wound’s opening deeper.
I’ll leave your moon-daisies in my hair and feel them wilt,
or grow, rooting themselves to my mind.
My skin’s the colour of cobwebs;
I could stitch myself together and become, in the right light,
a remembered figure. My veiled face could be any other bride’s.

But the stench of my clenched wound forces me to shut Spring out.
Numb the clocks, each tick the sound of grinding teeth.
Dressed to die, am I already dead?
He did not want my skin, the one that I gave him,
but it’s no longer mine; it hangs loosely on the precipice.
When in doubt, I loved; who knew 
that the skin could still bruise after death.
In this skeleton costume, the statis blinds.
The new moon watches obliquely;
If I am still enough he’ll think I’m stone;
he won’t recognise my newly marble heart:
the dead meat-organ hard and cold.

I fade and even the outline of my shadow disappears.
I ooze that white smell from every pore and it
twists my unbreaking insides into knots.
I am decay, all I touch turns white
but watch me yellow as the moon grows, 
beaming in the candlelight.
Give me his heart. 
This ghost-bride is owed a heart.

Sunlit meadows. A marriage.

Sunlit meadows. A marriage.


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


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


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

Spell B o u n d

Spelled Out

Spellbound, he captured me

But it was only a dream.

Craftily my mind carved

A space where we danced

And he drank honey

From my pomegranate navel.

Gently we caressed

Butterfly kisses extended

Unto flight of heart.

Spellbound, he captured me

But he was only a dream

His rugged jacket and 

Camouflages marched

Like ghosts in a desert

An aching in the hollows of my belly

Called out to him

Our wedding day approached

As I searched for wedding dresses

Pressed into 

Bridal magazines forever

A flower of international deceit

Instant bravery served like

Coffee wasted unto a table of

Unfinished jigsaw puzzles.

Spellbound he captured me

But I was only a dream

Jacked up into a tiny space

I did not even scream 

When my very being splintered

At my second birth

Blood and dust compressed

Clanging in the ears

Of innocent passersby

I dissolved like ice

Buttered popcorn thrown into

A crowded theatre

Surprising everyone yet

Recognizable as marches

For freedom

That will always and never

Be attainable.

He pushed me into a corner

Of my own life and I looked

Out screaming until

I broke the spell.

I captured the dream

Sat it at a distance

Breathing life into it

A dragon blast of oxygen

A parade of hope

Like on January 16

Every year dreaming

Of peace and rightness

Spell broken I captured me

Forcing air into my

Lungs as I expanded

Breath after breath

Thought after thought

Step after step

Lifting my hands 

Unto the plow

Reclaiming my raisin

From the explosion

Digging the ditches

Of reconnection

Forming a mound of

Clay into a habitation

Praying arrogantly that all

Spellbound captivity

Will end.

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.

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.

Young in Love Again--- SONG 2

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

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


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

Every kiss sends a shock through me
Every touch makes my heart stop
The way he looks a me when making love
Makes my stomach turn into a knot
I want to know everything about him
I know this may sound just a little bit silly
But I want to be with him forever
And be Mrs. Joshua Lilly

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.

wonder why

i wonder, how thy earth moves
i wonder how, man decides the meaning of marriage 

is it not bound by force, is it not a core of constant acceleration, 9.8 meters per second 
is it bound by the imaginary book of rules, is it not based on core of trust, honesty, love

why shall you stay quiet in front of a lion, but behind, you fight, a fight worthy of an sultan
you lash, and spread as a cobra, but afaced with the "enemy" you are nothing more than a domestic pet!!!!!!!

then in all, my dear sir, shall you answer thy question

why must you decide the fate of marriage

is it wrong, to marry the one you love, besides the boundary of gender 
is it wrong, dear sir, is it 
that you must decide thy fate of marriage
freedom is prosperous, freedom is not limited!!!!

Losing Soldiers

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

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

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

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

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

Wedding Blessing

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

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!

In Sickness and In Silence

Endless masquerade I despise 
No longer am I able to tolerate this feigned smile 
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
Oh Please, I do not wish for you to sympathize 
This is why I must go this extra draining mile 
Endless masquerade I despise.
 
A silent scream from inside is my well-earned prize
For these surrounding cherished faces are oblivious all the while
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
But will this heavy stone lodged in my throat lead to a forgotten demise?
As I madly crawl down this heavily perfumed white rose colored aisle
Endless masquerade I despise.
 
Now I stand seemingly faithful to the stranger beside me and recognize
A hint of despair in his own strained smile
Struggling to hide an inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
Oh deadly facade of happiness we must both advertise 
The act of mutual deception is certainly vile
Endless masquerade I despise
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.

Love at first sight

Love at first sight they all say without thoughts
Now a days people use the word love easily
Some think that love is an item and can just be bought
I think that love is natural just like a lily
Like a lily it blooms and hopes to be sought
When people really fall in love they feel silly
Sad they wish that hearts can be easily caught
But to think about it, hearts can be moved so easily
Things like feelings from someone have hearts been bought
Just like everyone I said Love so regularly 
Love is a meaningful without doubt	
I know that love too can be treat you harshly
Even trust comes but without trouble will come through
But through the hardships you hear love so clearly

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

The Question

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

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

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

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

I made her an offer, and the angel didnt decline, ill give you whats mine,love's unlimited divine attention, not to mention, devotion, tenderness, and affection. Your a cut above the rest, the finest selection. ill be your knight in a shining tux, and give you protection never negletion, or worse, seperation.

I want you, until the end of life's destination. We own the type of love that deserves an ovation. Its far beyond my wildest estimation. Since i met you, my life went through a reformation, you are my rehabilitation. i dream you, taste you and feel you in my meditation, with you always in my contemplation. when you need me, my dove, there will be no procrastination. Our love is like helium, its a total elevation, a gravity defying emancipation, a liberartion that makes my heart stop in suspenstion, thats how deeply i felt your connection. moments stored in my memory for recollection your my love's divine and my jubilation.

part 1: Celebration of the wedding bed!

I sit this night
glorious night
one a.m.
ponder, turn
look , your bed
my bed
our bed - to be
sheets, pillow
I dream
          red
stand by the angels
protecting the dresser
with a glass
red wine
my last night
confess there
in rooms
my heart 
holding (past)
 in arms
alone no more
your bed
our bed
much more
though.

some may say 
a man’s desire
mortal - flesh
but not so
your bed - our bed
a kingdom
my castle, flowing.
to know - that is desire;
it’s center
known
and found.
as we glance, peculiar
in Eden’s crown
naked, trace
the thread of passion
from dust to rib
to other halves
in pain 
we live
for love
what greater deed
sacrifice
fight cane’s seed
Abel’s right
the blind escaping 
un righteous night

consumed     we are
in  rooms    will be
and are

newly clothed
HE celebrates
sees not past
nor secret place
but Christ and spirit
O’  God of grace

it feels good to know 
I have found someone 
who cares as much

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

Oh blend us Lord together

And in thy mighty power Lord

Then across the mighty heavens write

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.

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.

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.

When Our Wedding Bells Ring

When Our Wedding Bells Ring
We will walk down the isle
side by side

When Our Wedding Bells Ring
We will walk by faith
not by sight

When Our Wedding Bells Ring
white doves will fly 
above our heads

When Our Wedding Bells Ring
No one will be there to take our love away

When Our Wedding Bells Ring
We are our future to look
ahead and not back
This will be a lovable
memory for me and whoever
is my future somebody

A Wedding Prayer

Like the sand upon the shore in its endless, vast amount,
Or the stars in a clear night's sky, too numerous to count,
In each others' eyes, see forever and beyond
That your love may be for you and God an eternal bond.

Like the unspoken words in a mother's caring eyes,
Which tell of unconditional support that never dies,
From each others' lips, hear the vows you commit to fulfill
That when nothing else remains, your promise always will.

Like the potter who carefully molds his work of art from clay,
Or the child who creates a world of her own through imaginary play,
With each others' hands, build a lifelong dream to last
That one day you will smile as you remember times gone past.

Like the trees forever reaching toward the sun in the far away sky,
Or the destiny of the eagle to soar gracefully and high,
In each others' hearts, together, find a peaceful place to grow,
That now and for the rest of your lives, joy and love you'll know.

These eyes, lips, hands, and hearts raise now in prayer to bind
Two souls that once lived lives apart into one of the most blessed kind.

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.

Freedom In The Confines of True Love



" Freedom In The Confines of True Love ... "
(A Wedding Song)

( Matt. 19: 4-6 )



There They Are
As Bride and Groom
Entering In
That Private Room

In The Space
Where Both Did Choose
and They Lock It Up
So They'll Never Lose

No Need To Break-Out
Or Push Walls and Shove
For There Is Freedom
In The Confines of Their Love

and There's No Need To Escape
Or Get Away From
The Thrill, They Feel
In Each Other's Arms

For There Is Where Hearts
Open Up and Hug
Where There Is Freedom
In The Confines of Warm Love

So Give The Signal
To Release The Doves
and Raise Their Symbols
That Show All of Us

There Is Real Freedom
In The Confines of Love
A Perfect Fit - Closeness
Like Hands In Gloves

And In The Area of
Mutual Honor & Trust
Never Take It For Granted
But Cherish Such


And They Promised To Take
Each Other, Because
There Is Freedom
In The Confines of True Love

Bound In The Bond
of GOD's Eyes Above
For There Is Freedom
In The Confines of Pure Love



Now, That They Are
Beloved, Bride and Groom
Laying Somewhere Beneath
Bright Stars and Moon

They Don't Need Keys
Outside The Passion of
The Freedom In The Confines
of Their True, Sweet Love

Yes, There Is Freedom
In The Confines of True Love ...

United By Love But Consumed By Fate

They tenderly kissed
To seal the bond,
To mend their ties
They felt so fond.
I soundlessly loathed
And stood in my place.
I wanted one night.
I wanted her face.
My mind will drift
As they cut their cake,
I'll open his chest 
And drink in their fate.
I'd burn down the chapel
And hang from a beam.
I'd gouge out his heart
Just to hear her scream.
I'll fill up my cuts
With sugar and acid,
I'll die on the floor
And let the watchers pass us.

life's insight

I had to be strong and not falter
Remember our wedding day?
You ran from the alter
Didn’t want to talk to anyone wanted to be alone
Remember our conversation on the cellphones?
You expressed your doubts
And began to shout
Recalling a fight from moths ago
When friends and us all went out

I embraced you with words
And foiled your concerns
We both couldn’t ignore
What our hearts yearned 

We shed our tear
And shared a cry
Look at us now 
We’re doing fine
2 years later a beautiful lady
Hugs, kissed, and endless smiles
Expecting our first baby

What a good mother
 You never scold
Lilly Ann we hoard like treasure
That’s our precious gold

We shed tears
And shared a cry
Look at us now
We are a family with our own house 
And we are doing fine

Perfect Union

At this moment, like most, thoughts of you walk my mind,
The greatest woman existent in mankind.
Faults you may have which at times result in my dismay,
But regret is not my portion, and will not be to my final day.

This golden opportunity has revealed many things,
Once a cold place, now like a bird my heart sings.
I realize my true potential to love and to trust,
So much more there is, in my life you are a must.

Like my supply of air you keep me alive,
In remaining in this realistic fantasy, I can only thrive.
You are the butter to my bread, the healing to my heart’s confusion,
To every intimate problem, you are surely my solution.

So many times there are no appropriate methods I find,
To reward you for your enrichment to body, soul and mind.
This amazing union erases the dream/reality border,
Since I’ve been with you, they are now one romantic order.

Again I have tried to express this, so much still left unsaid,
This love a constant fire, one always burning red,
Accomplished I now feel after all our joy and despair,
And for my given reasons, I will always hold you near.

for eternity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My  eternity.

Love caught up with us

The daylight has come, the night is gone
The hours of toil have passed
The curtain has been drawn
The pain is gone, God’s peace is in
Listen to the song of the birds in our hearts
A fresh new day has come
Our souls are trembling under the power of love

This attraction we’ve always fought
Was the dream our souls sought
The silent hurts we endure each moment 
Our souls fight the torment,
Of resisting a preordained love, is from above
Your countenance, peaceful like a dove
Your faith, strong like waves of the sea
Will soon betray the love you refuse to see

Heavenly petals are falling with obvious reason
To announce the sweetness of the season
The celestial waterfall is sprinkling on us
The hour has finally caught up with us
The daylight has truly come, the night is gone forever
Who are we to fight the light
When our home has come to us in our hearts
Untill time ceases and space is no more
We will forever love and fight no more

My vow to you

As I take your hand in mine
                                 Offer you my heart
Put my trust in the Lord above

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

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.

Wedding Night

What started with a gaze, Transformed to nuptial bliss. You took my breath away, Within our first kiss. · Feeling your soft tanned skin, Brushing next to mine. Steams the windows of my soul, Sending shivers up my spine. · Tonight is our night, We finally are complete. Our poetic hearts are scribing, Midnight sonnets with each beat. · You’ve waited for this moment, Now I’m finally yours. I’ll love you ‘til my soul, Sets sail for Heaven’s shores. · You’re the one and only, Who brings joy to my life. We are sensual lovers, Husband and wife. ________________ *Note: Just a poem

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.

Forever Beloved

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

Paradise

There standing with a hill to view
Above a stream were just two
About little flowers, purple, white
Ever fading went the light
Evening air rustled the leaves
They stood close in the breeze
Her blue sapphires gleaming
His heart faster beating
The time was now
He took a bow
Her hand in his
The question is
Him to her and her to him
Love shines forever, never dim

Till Death Do Us Part

Honey, it's hard that you're miles away
How I wish you can be here by tomorrow
tomorrow can turn out to many tomorrows
From sadness of missing each other to happiness wishing forever

If one day there's a war, they would call you and I cannot say no
How sure are you they will never call
Honey, I don't wish to be left alone with our children
They would need a father figure and you're not there

I need you there with me even though I don't know much about you
All I know is you're searching for someone like me
I'm sorry to say that I need you too
To help the people of God surrounding me

No one would like me because I'm disable
I want them to see, they thought wrong about me
I'm trying to do the best I can
Sometimes the one I did is better than them

Prudence of working hard
Tolerance and time are needed to reach success
Being together to plan of moving forward
To reach happiness, till death do us part

the rose

                                                    (love story)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Wedding Script

The Curtains have been drawn,
The lights turn low,
Everyone gathers to see the show.
The Hero Gets the Girl,
The Hero Saves the Day,
As we all dream for a life this way.
Like Casablanca,
Or gone with the Wind,
We all remember Who, Where, When.
We fell in love,
Like we have seen on the screen,
Which turned to Reality which once was a dream.
Without though of Risk,
Without though of Chance,
You took her hand and asked for the Dance.
Like Clark Gable,
Or Fred Astaire,
You moved as if you were walking on Air.
You can find True Love,
If you know where to start.
It starts here, It starts with your heart.
Love is more than a movie,
More than a script acted out,
This is what love is truly about.
The love you share,
The dreams you share,
The Passion, the Joy, the Respect is there.
With the two of you staring.
It is already the perfect cast,
Forever is how long this love will last.
As you stare into each others eyes
You know you will always have a friend
Lights turn on, the crowd cheers… The End.

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.

All

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

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

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

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

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!

The Key to the Heart

It's something meant to cherish,
And is guarded, Oh, so well.
The contents one will find inside
Reflect this foreign cell.
On its door contains a lock
Made entirely of solid gold.
Only one is able to open it
And find treasures unforetold.
Some hold tightly to its value 
And they keep it close to heart,
While others may give it freely 
Right off from the very start.
The thought to hold onto to
Guide you through each day,
Is to wait for that treasure
Of equal value, to exchange
On one's wedding day.

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.

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.

oath

An oath I have made that I can not keep
“as Christ loved the church” 
{you lay asleep}
I ponder grace, mercy’s grand
Weight of sacrificial lamb
emptied glory, servant poor
for riches reaching every shore
an oath I made, thus, covenant
to rip the purse, completely spent
all of me, the known and dreamed
he gave his life, and lived for me
though he was rich becoming poor
I ponder this (for this once more)
glory restrained, for malice, pain,
Humility for sinners gain
loving un-lovely, making true
even the grave he humbled to
baring all, curse and stain, the wrath
for man and woman’s shame 
becomes the bull on alters red
he had no place to lay his head
bending low, with every blow
he took on flesh, so “they may know”
By his will, he walks in love
divinity - the cross above
on his shoulders, the ocean’s weight
of drowning man’s wicked fate
this by mercy, not forced unto
to show the world what love will do
an oath I have made (before his face)
I can not keep - God give me grace

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.

Anniversary Collaboration

Today on our wedding anniversary we get together and write this poem, my beloved wife and I.

Anniversary collaboration

It’s forty nine years now
Since we wed on that day
But dear, I still love you
In the grandest of ways 
I’m glad that we married
I love you so much
I hope you still love me
Though I’m greying a touch.

Yes I will still love you
Though you have gone grey
We will keep on loving
In the same lovely way
Our lives till forever
They will be entwined
Forever my darling
I will still be thine.

I thank thee my angel
For I could not live
Without you beside me
You have much to give
I give you my heart
And I give you my soul
Each moment I’m with you
My world feels so whole

These forty nine years
You have gave me such bliss
If you were not with me
How you I would miss
I thank you for giving 
Me your heart, and soul
I’m glad that I get you
To feeling so whole.

Vepe collaboration 12 June 2014.

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

Perfect Love

On this beautiful sunny day
You walk down the aisle to him
As you two join your heart and souls
kiss the Bride and I do is what they say

A love like yours is rarely found
The joy both of you together bring
As the two of you join your hands
Rings of love you exchange forever round

As he kisses his Bride, Husband and Wife
Heaven's found a rare perfect love
As Juan and Barbara join each other
They are promising each other life.

Warnings from the Waterfly

Taking use of a waterfly
She merrily drifts on
To a tired petty refuge...
For the last time.
The waterfly is gentle
Beyond it's appearance.
It's wings bellow 
A deep hum 
And it's ventriloquist  eyes
Are forever waiting beneath the sea.
You lay a few cautious kisses
Upon it's head.
It's been so tedious over the years.
So careful to go 
To each specific place.
It's corpulent body
Trembles in it's pace
And carries you into 
A stronger current,
Ignoring the ancient palace.
Your curiosity fumbles 
With his golden reigns.
He turns back
Unwillingly.
Strange.
Strange that this old waterfly
No longer knows his way.
Strange, he seems
Reluctent to obey.
She strokes his weary head
And they arrive at their destination.
What a strange being.
She wonders as she 
Searches his age old face 
Worn at the edges with
Touches of silver splinters
And water rust.
Each crease and fold
Holding more water
Than the hungry path in which they travel.
Don't go.
Begging,
Selfish,
Incandescent,
Loathing.
Don't go.
This is what his front
Would say
But it never makes it past his
Studded, smooth, eroded teeth.
She left.
She walked below the bridge instead.
She opened the door to the palace
Where brave men no longer venture.
She spots a cold dark woman
With a veiled face and frowning brows.
She wears a white familiar dress.
All to familiar to the waterfly flyer.
She stares at the eyes of the dangling woman.
They protrude from her skull
In a somewhat modest fashion,
Like a prostitute,
Avoiding the burns of the limelight.
They devoured her face and 
Left her lips parted with slurred speech.
The wedding march
From a Midsummer Night's  Dream
Slowy churned on beneath the stifled murmurs.
She heard murmurs.
Her distant husband sat in a corner
With three limpid bitter seas
Tumbling from his green skies.
He held a wrinkled, written prose
Within his trembling hands.
She left me her body,
He cried.
She always left me her body.
And the waterfly fell silent.

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

Whenever I Think of You

Whenever I think of you
it's like the sun shining through a storm.
I can see the cloudiness,
I feel enveloped by a warmth.

Whenever I think of you
it's like the moon is full for me.
There are no other people,
its shine is only for me to see.

Whenever I think of you
it's like the flowers are all in bloom.
There's never, ever a wilt,
I wear them as a plume.

Whenever I think of you
it's like every fruit has ripened.
Their nectar tastes all the sweeter,
my taste buds are all livened.

Whenever I think of you,
it's like I cannot think at all.
My mind becomes disheveled,
my body listens to my heart.

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.

moment that lasts forever

She is a blank canvas I am the artist Love is the perfect portrait that we make. I search for a moment that lasts forever. Something to express what i feel for her. My unchained emotion, that goes on forever unchained, unlimtied and untamed. You cant cage this animal nor tame this lion in me called love, nor arrest it's cousin, passion or its uncle, emotions. I adorn her earth with kisses ravish the garden called her trinity, each sound turns the grass greener. earth shattering pulsations on this bed love founded on a bed of fresh roses She is a blank canvas I am the artist Love is the perfect portrait that we make. I search for a moment that lasts forever.... That lasts forever. amen

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...

Second Promise

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

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

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

To notice

Song of Betrothal

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

sources Song of Solomon Proverbs 31:10-31 
Apocalypse 7:1-8 21:9-27 
The Bride of Christ the true temple of God
the 144,000 kingdom of kings and priests
sealed to Gods service as differenciated from
the great crowd that come thru the 
apocalypse 7:9-17

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.

Love Is

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love is how I feel for you.

The Correct Decision

In a world crowded with people, and everyone fighting for the catch 
It is such a miracle that I managed to find my perfect match; 

I am so very lucky to get to spend so many years with you 
Even after all this time the love in my heart still it feels anew, 

Our Wedding Anniversary reminds me of that beautiful day 
When you entered my life and sent all my sorrows far away; 

I made the best decision and took you as my partner for life, 
It is something I will be thankful for, even after I die.

~*~My Mother In-Law~*~

My mother in-law is a wonderful person.
She treats me good and tells me all about her son. 
She said that she hopes the best for us. 
That she hopes we last long and someday get married.
I love hearing her say that. It tells me that I have her approval. 
She even told me that the reason she tells me about her son 
is because she sees me like her daughter and I take that to the heart.

Wedding dress

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WHEN WE FIRST MET

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

Cordelia

Across the ocean and clear blue sky
For reason, what purpose I kept wondering why?
Dear Lord thou knowest is this the right choice
Comforted and strengthed by the still small voice

I saw her that day my heart did pound
God's will in the Midwest at last I had found
The maker more perfect than a human scout
His ways and purpose past finding out

Dear love in sweet tones I call out to thee
In trembling I wonder will she go with me?
Together to dwell in sweet harmony
Held fast by God's hands in holy matrimony

Your love is gone

Your love is gone

You, told me  that  you love me forever
Oh girl, you promise me you never say goodbye
Why can't you stay
and why did you lie
Now our love, is it over

I still played the loved songs each and every day
to reminisce the time that you say
I love you
and i hope you stay with me my baby...

Your love is gone
i miss you girl so much
your love is gone
Oh baby your still the one
i am down on my knees each day
and pray
but your love is gone


So many memories we had in the past
But seasons ended and it didn't last
you have the change of heart
now girl were both apart...


Your love is gone
i miss you girl so much
your love is gone
Oh baby your still the one
i am down on my knees each day
and pray oh wohh wohh..

Your love is gone
i miss you girl so much
your love is gone
Oh baby your still the one
i am down on my knees each day
and pray
but your love is gone..

i give you my all
with my heart, and soul
oh girl,you give me pain
now my tears begins to rain
why didn't you wear this ring...

Your love is gone
i miss you girl so much
your love is gone
Oh baby your still the one
i am down on my knees each day
and pray
i am down on my knees each day
and pray
but your love is gone

Loving You

As i've gotten to know you, I've fallen in love with you more than expected. I guess it's the 
way you are to me, I feel protected. The way you touch me so gentle and dear, it shows 
your affection, so perfectly clear. The way you enter my body and touch my soul. To me is 
this is something I had never known. There's so many things that you cause me to feel, so I 
know without a doubt that our love is real. When I see your face, I can't help but grin. On a 
scale from 1 to 5, I give you a ten. Your not just my man, your one of my best friends. I love 
you baby, and thats the truth, it drives me crazy to be so far from you. I want to be with you 
for the rest of my life, I want to have your kids and be your wife. But for right now all I can 
say is "I LOVE YOU" baby and I hope you feel the same way.

I Knew You and You Knew Me

I knew you and you knew me.
Both of us could clearly see.
And with our inner sight divine. 
The meaning of our hearts.
I am very sure that we differ less.
 
I knew you and you knew me.
And each one knew his and her own self.
We could look each other in the face.
And see herein a truer grace.
That will make us function without struggle.

Look into my eyes.
You will see what you mean to me.
Search your heart.
Browse through your soul.
If you find me then you search no more.

Look into my hands.
You find there is nothing inside.
Take me as I am.
I will give.
I will sacrifice all.
Love is true.
Everything I do I do for you.

History of the Pretzel

Your bedtime prayers
Coupled with the right Scriptures
Yield "pretiolas"

To tie the knot with...
Thick, soft "bretzels" are folded
Like arm over arm.

Hard, brown pretzel twists
Are more than little rewards-
Sweet licks, salty bites...

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

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

She came...they went

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

Percentages said it wouldn't last

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

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
beautiful works.

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 !!!

Symbol of love

When you and your wife had your baby, he became the ultimate symbol of love 
that you two share.
He represents a love that will stand the test of time and that shines brighter than 
a flare.
Some people think that wedding rings are the symbol of love between a man and 
his wife.
But wedding rings are just pieces of metal and they can't touch the symbol of love 
that comes from this tiny life.

~*~Wanting A Baby~*~

He asked me to give him a baby
Which i have always dreamed of
When i do have that baby boy or baby girl
I'll know it will have been conceived with love
For 9 months of my life, while my baby is growing
They'll be a day and everyday after that my face will be glowing
I want my child to know she or he can tell my anything
No matter what it is I'm here for everything
He shows me that he cares for me with such a great deal
That's why i think we cant hide how we feel
The words that he says bring hope to my life
That's why I wouldn't mind being his wife.

Joyful Years

Love is all I feel,
With every passing day,
Each time that our lips seal,
I give my heart away.

In words I say "I love you",
And my heart feels the same,
With my soul I'll say "I do",
I know this is not a game.

Life is very wonderful,
He is always near,
The rest of my years will be joyful,
Because he will be right here.

You'll Know It's Him

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

THE MONEY FOR HER DIAMOND

     In the heat of July, 
While bringing in the hay, 
He gave her a baling wire ring, 
And this is what he had to say... 

     “Someday I’ll put a diamond, 
Here on your hand. 
A diamond pure and perfect, 
As sure as I’m your man. 

     But, you know, a diamond, 
It won’t ever shine, 
As long or as bright, 
As this love of yours and mine.” 

     So they saved for her diamond,  
By putting little bits away, 
Money for the diamond, 
He would buy for her one day. 

     But the money for her diamond, 
Fixed the tractor and bought a plow, 
And in the dead of winter, 
Paid the vet. bill for the cow. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Put the water to the barn, 
And paid the increased taxes, 
The county levied on the farm. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Paid the doctor in town, 
And when their daughters were all grown, 
It bought the wedding gowns. 

      It paid for the new roof, 
When the big wind came through. 
Then it it paid off the mortgage, 
Before it was due. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Was always well spent, 
She never even asked him, 
Just where the money went. 

     The money for her diamond, 
Helped them to survive, 
The money for her diamond, 
Kept their hopes and dreams alive. 

    Today it’s been sixty-three years, 
And the diamond is on her hand. 
But, as usual, in her pocket, 
Lies her original wedding band. 

     A twist of baling wire,  
Bent and covered up in rust, 
A symbol of the greatest of loves, 
His Promise and Her Trust.

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

The Locket

This seat, this view, the hot rising sun
Memories began, flooding her heart.

As she gazed out at the tranquil beach
She recalled their hopes, their dreams, their
first time in these seats.

They had walked this beach, laughing so silly
His smile, her giggle, making love in the
sand.

He sketched their initials with a bright
yellow straw
Covered her eyes, and asked for her hand.

He clasped a locket around her neck
Like a glimpse of heaven, a beautiful poem
My strength, my soul, the place I call home.

As he approached the table, she giggles, he
smiles, he clasps her hand, the locket, close.

We chose one another with hope in our heart
Like a glimpse of heaven, a beautiful poem

This locket is a token
Of our love from the start.

Pink Is O.K.

don't you just love 
the skin your in?
dimples on your cheeks 
when you smile and grin
light and darkness make beauty begin
blending  elegance and cuteness
from forehead to chin
your eyes
for the very first time i've seen
"The windows of the soul"
your hair 
I would prefer black or grey
but for now, i guess pink is O.K.
don't you just love the skin your in?

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!"

By Jim Pemberton 
 2008

The philosophy of marriage

The philosophy of marriage

 Marriage is a thing
That must not be force
Seen so many people
 Ends up in divorce

Once you get marry
The friendship is lost
And you can’t make it back
To the bridge that was cross

They start to find Faults 
In what was cute before
Then it gets frustrated
When love walks out the door

You know I love you
More than words can say
But if we get marry
We could lose that one day

Some people gets marry
To start a life together
And some marriage has to 
Face all kinds of weather

Not every couple is happy
Deep down in their hearts
I bet they all were happier
Before the marriage talk starts

They says it’s all about love
But I don’t think it’s true
It’s about trust and respect
That sticks it like crazy glue

Many want their children
To be born in a married home
But how many ends in divorce
Leaving their children alone

 Know a lot of people who 
Wish they never get marry
All because they rush in
Was in to much of a hurry

Don’t get me wrong
Some marriages are right
If its build on respect
And they do not fight

When bad words are said
Like fire it can burn
And something is lost
That cannot be return

First couples are dating
Become husband and wife’s 
Then starts to annoy each other
For the rest of their life’s

Love is a wonderful thing
To have someone who cares
But because of a wedding ring
It can quickly disappear

The love we have is special
We feel each others pain
Let’s preserve this love of ours
So no more wedding talk again


Details | Lyric | |

gotta believe

you gotta believe 
that love is true
you gotta believe

you just gotta believe,

you have to let love find 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

WHITE LIES

     WHITE LIES
          Verse 1
You're in my mind, you're still part of me.
Here in my mind, where my heart can see.
Though you are gone, I go on--
and your memory is still in my mind!

             Verse 2
Something that's borrowed and something blue.
Something that's old, and then something new.
I get along--but it's wrong--
that your memory is still in my mind!

            CHORUS
I take thee forever love and cherish!
Sickness and good health, to love and cherish!
Poverty and wealth! Til death do us part!
I take thee forever, I'm forever!
I'm a part of you! My love's forever!
Even little white lies come from the heart!

White lies. White lies.

I'd Dream

As a child, I'd close my eyes

Dream of the day where Mr. Anonymous and I would one day meet

And when we did, we'd talk, laugh, and smile while having a good time

And I would remember the time my mom said

"Like a river, love makes a new path. If he truely lovesyou, all that would matter isyour eye"

Every word dhe told me I believe

Cause one day I opened my eyes fromthat dream

Mr. Anonymous was by my side

Telling me everything I'd love to hear in sweet tones of true love

And he's tell me while holding me gently

"Your beautiful and so are your eyes,

I love the sway of your hips when you walk

The sound of your voice plays musical tones

Your smile, I just can't resist

And your laugh, is a gift from God that words can't describe

Everything about you I love just the way it is"

And his words are true cause I'd wipe his tears away

Then the question was asked

And the day we've both been waiting for

Where we unite as one is here

And this new beginning will be sealed with a zealous kiss

Forever Wed

To love, is what you taught me.

And I feel as if, a better person

Is what I ought to be.

For everything I have been shown,

From the love in your heart, 

And the life of my own

It has opened my mind 

To a brand new view

And I wouldn't be anything 

If it wasn't for you.

Now looking in your eyes

And wanting nothing more,

Than to give you my heart

For only you to adore

I stand here content

With the decision we have made.

It seems I have dreamt

And anticipated my whole life

For this very moment, For this very day.

So I say that I love you

And I promise to adore you

And with a simple kiss, 

I convey the words I Do

MISLED

You promised me
That you'd change,
Which you did
For a little while.
For three months
You were a dream,
Filled me with happiness,
And my days with a smile.

But sadly, it didn't last,
Slowly, it's fading away.
Please don't tell me
It's going back to the same.
I truly believed in you,
So proud of the person
I honestly had thought
You had truly became.

Eight years together,
Loving and caring for you.
Giving you my life
With my heart and soul,
Through the hurt and tears,
Many hugs and kisses,
Believing we're a team
Headed towards the same goal.

To be married was always
The future plan.
Committing to one another;
Uniting as husband and wife.
Signifying that final bond
With rings on our finger;
That for "better, for worse",
Together, the rest of our life.

We've invested too much
Of our time and ourselves.
Our days full of memories,
Impossible to just forget.
Are you really willing
To let this pass on by,
Only to wake up one day
With deep sorrow and regret?

Can you throw me away
And cause me such pain,
Leaving permanent scars behind,
A constant reminder of you?
Letting go of the only one
That ever gave a damn,
Who loved you the most
And never gave up on you?

Is it worth the fee,
The price you'll pay?
What will it
Have actually cost,
Your true love,
Your forever love;
Our life together
Will have been lost.

Happiness is what we deserve,
And we both can have.
Beside you as your wife
I know is where I belong.
Will you ever marry me?
Will I ever see my Wedding day?
Are you finally to commit,]
Or just stringing me along?

I hope your answer
Is the right one,
Because the signals you're sending
Are so unclear and confusing me.
So, be the strong man
I know you can be,
Everything I truly believe
A GOOD man to be!

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,

Remembering date of first date,

Special poem for her,
Asking for hand

Remembering special dates,
Saying those words,

True Love from above

Are you happy when you marry? 
Or are you shy and don't ask why? 
Things are never as they seem 

Do you mean people marry 
The people they have never seen? 
Absolutely not, what a load of rot! 

People marry because they love each other 
To keep one another 
To have each other 

They walk down  to say " I do!" 
Then kiss in front to hear the "Phew!" 
Are you saying people love, even though they might
 
Not fit the same glove? 
To have and to hold 
Until they are old and never part? 

It's like a work of art! 
Because her Father gave her to you, 
To love and cherish till the end. 
Do you think the rules will bend? 

Of course they won't, it's not a joke! 
The Father was serious to give her away. 
But, today who is on display? 

To show his worthy because his blind 
He touched her face and breathed 
In a sigh, as he felt her precious eyes. 

Though, he is blind, he has always felt 
In his heart what she could see, 
The true love from above.

I care for him a lot and
I would love to be his wife but 
Im only 15 years old. 
should I say yes and 
take his last name like I want to? 
should I say no and risk losing him forever?
I might say no but only because I want to wait till senior year.
he's the love of my life and I hope he can understand me. 
I want to marry him but 
he has to understand that the only way I can marry him is
if my mom signs and I know for damn sure that 
she's not going to sign the papers with me 
only being 16 maybe 17 or 18 but not 16.
baby, if you're reading this don't take it the wrong way
I'm not saying I don't want to marry you I just want to wait till senior year.

Meekness  and  forgiveness charactarise  a woman 
of  equal  taste and delicacy braided in  fine ribbons.
Morning  breakfast  aromas ,  activity  on  fine linen
shows  a  broken  in  the  bud youth  of gentle spirit.
Love , is  the  childish  divinity of fresh-faced youths.
Broken  voice  flames  a warm passion and desire.
Sights and sounds of a hearbeat like a drum solo 
in  a  small  town  honoured  occassion appeared
before him with tembling and terrified rose cheeks.
His voice harmony itself, twinkle in his eye, reined
his horse close to the carriage and doffed his hat.
Duty  made  passion  a  virtuous  June  wedding.
Exquisite  decorum  with exceedingly lively chatter.
Sharing  their hearts joy  in a banquet of celebration
congratulating the new couple on future happiness.

Point 5 plus Point 5 Equal 1

You and I are living in a world without meaning.
So lets love and give love and do something different.
We have a chance to show emotions are still relevant.
lets give this world some significance .
 
They said from the start that two broken hearts can not form a congruent one.
But the value of two individual parts together can have an even greater sum.
 
Lets present what we envision.
 Lets show the world how much its really missing.
Lets peace together the puzzles of the heart.
Lets prove its about our journey and our end not just about one's start.
 
If only two can put faith back in love , it serves to prove theres love in multitude,
for we feel like one but theres more than just the two of us.
 
So I place my palm in yours and smile at life's glooms ,as we step into big rooms and overly tight corridors.
Hand in hand you showed me that the world is mine.
But life has taught me its also yours.

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.

The Scattered Petals of The Rose

What would be the reason, the path that they chose.
In the mind, that point of time, it seemed to be so right;
To walk upon the path of scattered petals of the rose.

New beginnings, wrapped in ribbons and tied with bows;
Veiled with lace and a dress of pearl beads, glisten white.
A dream fulfilled at  the end of the path that they chose.

People gather to witness in their garish clothes;
Seated in anticipation on wooden pews to view hearts in flight.
Watching as the path is scattered with petals of the rose.

Forever, forever is the hope of the vows, and that it grows.
To keep the inner embers glowing, no blinding light;
As not to wilt the scattered petals of the rose.

Challenges the  body, and soul and what they expose.
Always the truth, the need to be right or to be contrite;
Remembering always the reason it was the path they chose.

Not to give in to the intoxicated spite, the loneliness of night;
Viewing the self, reflective and truthful as moonlight.
Remembering always the reason it was path they chose;
To cherish always the path of the fragile petals of the rose.

The Bulldog Gets Married

                                    The Bulldog Gets Married

The day is perfect:
  Sunlight gold
    Sapphire blue
                 The skies smile down upon us
                 And the silence rings with joy.

She too, stands perfect:
  Her Beauty pure
    Her dress like snow
          Swirls about her flawless youth; 
          The quiet music starts.

Together we walk
  Hand in hand,
    Stone by stone
             Her future waits before us,
             Shining in the sun.

She who won my heart
  Rules his today;
    There he stands,
             Ablaze with love and honor
             Watching our approach.

The final end of Childhood comes
  As with one kiss
    All is sealed
         With public vows and rings
         All who witness much approve.

And the photographs 
 Are duly taken
  And the friends all laugh in love
        As my daughter rules her Day
        With not the slightest show of effort

And the Past enfolds the Present
 As we lift each glass and toast
   And we all accept our Futures
         As the sun smiles on us all,
         Enfolding us in light

Shared memories fill
  The festive air
    The dying Summer
          Yet stretches out in languid Peace
          And makes this Day Eternal

Yet even Eternities end,
  Making way for others;
    The Forever light of Childhood
          Yields to Infinite Adulthood, and that to Age,
          And on into the starry Night approaching with the shadows...

Pair by Pair
  The guests depart
    The Couple leaves to start their Life.
          The silent Wheel turns ever on,
          Bearing us upon its rim.

So she who owns my heart
  Leaves holding his
    And All is as such things should Be.
          A Summer dies, a Fall begins;
          The Quiet rains around us.

A Forever Day, this Day;
  A piece of What Will Ever Be:
    Love and Laughter
           Wrapped in gold and sapphire,
            In a Silence that rings with Joy.

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.

(Untitled)

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

Our Wedding Day

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

struck by lightning

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

To say I was electrified
Is an understatement

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

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

Do I pull up my baggy pants and
Pretend
...

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

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

When I said too much 
And you gave a chuckle

As if to say good-bye

And we hit the reset button
For an resplendant reprise

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!

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.

(4/3/94)

Alter Drama

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

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

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

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

Last act, final scene
Soliloquized, masqueraded monk
LET HIM or HER SAY NOW OR NEVER
Solemnly rent the joyous arena

Still as the lay of the night
To the audibility of eloquent silence 
Echoed mischievous silence mediator
I! I! I HAVE A REASON 

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

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

My Big Day

Silence all around me as i walked into the room,
everyone is suppose to be excited iam the new bride of the groom.
Don't give me that look like you feel bad for me,
wats going on where is my husband to be?
Shaking and trembling with thoughts in my head,
if he called off this wedding he is going to wish he was dead.
Has anyone called him to see wats going on?
it's bad luck for me to see him so i refuse to call his phone.
Calm down please! replied mother before you ruin the make up no your face,
Iam going to get married right now i shouted 
today here in this place.
And just like a dream the telephone ring...
hello !hello!  i heard him say with the sound of static,
tell my wife we will get married today i was stuck in traffic.

your love

Your Love

Your love is like,
an autumn scene,
a falling leaf,
a running stream,

Your love is the sun,
shining through the shadow
of the trees,
sharing it's warmth,
through a chilly breeze,

Your love captures,
the tiniest tear,
and turns it to laughter,
then takes away your fear,

Your love can master
all forms of woe,
together you will share,
together you will grow,

through sunshine and rain,
and the falling snow.

The Day Part 2

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

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!

Heart Beats

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

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

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

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

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

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

Late One Afternoon

Late one afternoon, i saw a star,
And i wondered what month we were in the calendar.
Just as i worked outside on the printer
For such is only seen during the winter.

Oh! Thou magnificent star
Roaming within the boundries of space.
My heart beats as thou were afar,
As i gazed at thy beautiful face.

i felt thy undiluted fragrance,
That gave me an insight into your graceful elegance.
The thought has often come into my mind
If i ever shall feel it real, not in a trance.

I love to confess
My undeserved oneness
Which has brought me loneliness
Of living in a wilderness.

GETTING READY

Getting ready for a wedding
It's the hardest thing to do
One minute you're feeling happy
The next, you're all unglued
The wedding cake, the flowers
You're trying to find the best
In all the uproar and excitement
You've forgotten your favorite guest
The tuxes and the dresses
What color will they be
The depression of choosing
But, the decision is up to me
The guest book, announcements and
Finding the right address
To having a nice wedding
You will want God to bless
So, yes, I'm not ready
To have this special day
So, make sure you think of me
Whenever you begin to pray

Yes?

Deep feelings of bliss
love and rejoice,
confusing thoughts
that leave me no choice.

Should I kiss you
or should I wait,
our love's the catch
your lips the bait.

Do I need to ask
should I even dare,
wedlock's the question
for a perfect pair.

When I look into your eyes
I can't help but to feel,
the warmth of your soul
heaven has to be real...

Answer me baby
though it may cause some stress,
when I pop the question
will the answer be yes?

Treats on Heat

It's different when your just looking in,
I wish I could provide you details.
But my gut tells me you're not genuine

I'm sure you could offer me advise,
Supposed if I took it my life would suffice,
That's not good enough for me,
My heart is my only true guiding device,

There are so many pliable rules,
I want a sturdy guaranteed,
If you cant provide that for me,
Just please, let this conversation be

Over and over and over and over
I see what people think....
I'm young,
I'm nieve,
Sweet,
Dating a deadbeat,

We'll wait and see...only time will tell,
Who and how you gonna handle the treats destiny has on heat.

A Wedding

A Wedding

Let the bells ring!
Let the bells sound!
For today, in this place,
Hope and love abound.

You are united
As husband and wife,
You embark together
To build a new life.

A life rich and full
As your love for each other,
To share anew,
With sister and brother.

People will know when they see you
How content you are,
Fulfilled in your love
Your dreams have reached a star.

For there is no feeling
With greater expanse,
Than the feeling of love
A woman has for a man.

May God bless this union
With a blessing of love,
May He watch over you
Tenderly from above.

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

My Lonely Soul

You made me see who you really are,
and the worst one so far.
But I leave this world cold and lonely,
I have these five words for you only.
I hate you forever now,
and that is all that matters anyhow.
Why did you leave me unhappy and depressed,
and I bet you knew all the rest.
Dont worry and trust me for what Im about to say,
my soul is here to haunt you and its here to stay.
You can run but you cant  hide,
from your lonely souled bride who died.

Just Wont Happen

Went months going all over town,
Finally found the perfect gown,
But when I looked in the mirror,
Compared to dreams, 
My reality feels inferior,

You should be near..
For me to endear,
Your stubborn attitude arrests your emotions,
Reality you'll never apologize sinks deep in the big blue ocean,

Fiance found his suit,
I stare and smile, looks so damn cute!
I want to call and share this with you,
But with you I have nothing to do,

You should be near..
For me to endear,
Your stubborn attitude arrests your emotions,
Reality you'll never apologize sinks deep in the big blue ocean,

Collecting addresses from family,
Invitations are near ready,
Seems to be happening so quickly,
There's a damn of tears compiling rapidly,

I feared this a long time,
Couldn't put my finger on the dime,
This is the hardest thing I've had to do,
Plan my wedding without you

Honestly Im surprised,
Thought once you'd hear I was engaged you'd try,
Call me to talk, or show up at my house,
Your heart and mind are in a constant joust,
Hoped dearly that we'd reconnect,
So you could help me plan the perfect event,
Just wont happen..........

My biggest fear I have to overcome,
I can think about it all I want,
But when all is said and done,
Trying to stay true to what I feel is right,
Not sure how, but I refuse to let it ruin my special night.

~*~He Called~*~

OMG! You don't know how happy i am. 
I was sitting down watching TV when the phone rang.
I walked to the caller ID and guess what number I saw.
It was a number with an area code of (809), 
which is the area code of Santo Domingo (DR). 
I picked up the phone and on the other side, a sweet voice said,
"Hey baby, What you doing?" My heart literally jumped out of my chest. 
To hear his voice again was just so amazing. 
I can't explain the words of how I felt. It was just so amazing. 
I love him so much and I miss him a lot.
I'm just so happy he called.
He called!!!!!

~*~He Called Part 2~*~

I was sitting upstairs with my aunt watching "Human Trafficking" when it happened.
It was almost 11PM, when my cell phone rang.
I looked at the phone and the caller ID read "My Baby Cell". 
I was thinking "What’s Wrong With Me? He Can’t Be Calling My Cell." 
I picked up the phone and he said "Ima call the house" and i said "o.k." 
I Went downstairs and talked to him over the phone.
He was so sweet. He told me once again that when he comes back from DR,
he's going to marry me, and that just made my day. 
He loves me and I love him. That's what matters.

A White Rose in the Dark of Night

Silence as the days go by
A world were kindness is no more
But one maiden He could adore
So pure as not able to lie
She could sing as thou no voice could be heard
As He would describe Her as a white rose in the night
So gentle yet fierce to fight
She always stirred 
So softly as thou someone was always looking at Her
Mighty as He could be
But all She could see
Was love and despair?
Yet She cared so slightly for her thoughts
Nor He was sound with thoughts of love
Messages were sent on a snow-white dove
To share the fait of harmony
Yet interference was strong
A snake some might day
And when she would stray
There was a terrible song
But brave as a lion be
Brought Her back
Yet once more interference would attack
But win no less
Days of happiness would go by
And tunes of sorrow would disappear
Yet She felt rain upon her eyes
And He brought sun light to Her sight
Wishing She could dance till midnight
Telling Her to carry on
And say no more till dawn
Yet time was at its might
He wanted Her to whisk away
And listen to the loud crashing bells
Hopefully no one tells
The secrets He has told this day
Horses riding to the shore
Only two
Me and You
Smell the flowers strong and mild
Beauty as She is
But She could only see Her faults
He wished She lived in happiness
Moons and suns would change
And stars would gain and loose
And planets would rearrange 
Because love was found and lost
The day He slept silently
A Dragon awakened angrily
But She had slept restlessly 
The Dragon stepped so harshly
Awakened Her up
And felt fire as hot as the sun
She felt the need to run
But bravely stopped to look upon Him
But the Dragon grabbed Her with his claws
He stood tall with a powerful strength
He grabbed his sword at length
And fought the Dragon for His White Rose
She was sound not scared at all
He slashed up and got a hit
It created a large slit
And the Dragon fell
She clasped in his claws
He managed to release Her
They walked away in joyful steppes
Looking back at the dreadful sight 
Rebels came to stare away
Drained the blood of the Dragon
And when they were done
They walked away
With happy faces
She felt hurt for He was wounded 
He felt strengthened for She was saved

Cupid's Flight

I fly through the air with my bow and arrow, 
Through valleys wide and passageways narrow.
Putting people together that were once alone,
Melting their resistance and hearts of stone.

It doesn't matter what age that you may be,
Somewhere down life's road you'll encounter me.
Some people actually look for me, up to the skies they glance,
But many are afraid to give true love a chance.

Still others stay on the fence not knowing how they really feel,
It's those that truely need my help - those hearts for to heal.
When people have been severely hurt by a mate,
It's definitely hard to get them to even chance a date.

I'll never stop trying to help these people far and near,
Love is something precious, special and oh .... so dear.
When you're ready for me - my arrow will pierce your heart,
Your partner's waiting for you, from your side - never more to part!

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.

Taffeta, Lace and Silk

A vow of lies I should never have said,
Two words I wish I’d saved for me and you;
My wasted innocence on the wedding bed
Defiled the words of love that say ‘I do’.
A distant regret now haunts my mind, you see,
While watching you walking down towards me;
My vision of taffeta, lace and silk
Tainted by a past of the devil’s milk.
I seek your smile beneath the bridal veil,
My comfort before promises are made
And I give my heart as regrets now fade.
Later when I sip from your holy grail
And yield to the power of loving spells
I recall the joy of our wedding bells.

Unions Of Love

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

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

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

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

Our Silver Wedding Anniversary

Twenty five years ago today,
A young man woke on his wedding day.
As he lay there he thought of the good times to come,
Then a knock on his door, cup of tea from his mum.
Well son she said, the day has arrived,
Very soon you shall have your wife by your side.
He thought for a while at the words she just said,
Your wife by your side, went round in his head.
A smile then appeared across his face,
You’re right mum he said, I really can’t wait.
When at the church the nerves they took hold,
The best man gave a reassuring word.
The organ music changed its tune; the vicar gave a nod,
A couple that were so in love made vows in front of god.
That was twenty five years ago to this very day,
The young man that was me, 
The beautiful vision that stood by my side,
Wearing white old borrowed and blue.
Is the beautiful vision that is by my side still,
The one and only you!



For Marie with all my love, Mark

~*~The Love I Have For Him~*~

My love for him grows stronger and stronger every and all days
And more and more with every word he says
We can't help what we feel for each other
He’s meet my mom, my aunt, most of my family, even my brother
The only person in my family that he hasn't met is my dad
But to tell you the truth, I'm not all that sad
He wasn't here for my graduation, prom or my first days of school
To me, my mothers my mom and dad, and that's pretty cool
He hasn't even left yet and I miss him so much
Want to feel him next to me want to feel his touch
Hope he comes back soon, back by my side
Me and him, it feels like a joyride

wedding dress

wedding dress


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bling

I bought a great big piece of bling
With a stone and gold shaped like a ring
As I held it to your hand
You thought that it was grand

As I got down on one knee
Said now will you marry me
In your voice there was a choke
As you said is this a joke

You know I’m never brash
And I never splash my cash
But for you it had to be 
The best bling that I could see

So the question still remains
In the loudest of refrains
Will you marry me or not
I don’t want to hear no rot

I want this bling to be a sign
Of where two hearts will entwine
Third finger left-hand for the rock
So you can wear your wedding frock

It will make me happy a man
It might just please your gran
The kids will be happy to
As they hear us say I do

Is that yes that you just said?
Has the rock gone to your head?
Well the bling has done the trick
So book the wedding day real quick

Uncommonly good.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

My Love Walk To You

You came into my life,
showed me what was right
now I believe in love at first sight.

You showed me how to feel.
Yes it feels so real.
You brought those feelings out,
I kept inside and sealed.

I love you so, and I
want you to know, as I 
walk down the aisle
my love is yours forever more.

At times; I get so weak inside
never letting go of your love
now I thank God he sent you
from above.

I want you to know,
my heart will never go.
It's hear to stay for you,
the beats will always flow.

You looked into my eyes
and I told you why,
the sensational love, that's why
I will be yor wife.

Look

Shadows floating back and forth...
Searching the nite, shall we go west or north ?

For something special, anothers warmth and love...
chasing smiles and nice hugs.

Scouring the streets to make one feel O.K...
will we find them today ?

Not new sensations since the womb...
we follow it to the tomb.

When you find it , there or here...
that one who is so dear,

Cherish and keep them near,
and have good cheer.

Hold them close, hang on tight...
with all your might !

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.

I will find a place to stay for my Parme;
out of the rain but near the plain;
Out of the heat we will never burn!

I will never die.
She loves me.

Let's do it now before its too late.
The more we move closer,
The more i feel it nearer.
The more it comes closer,
The more our love becomes stronger.
Than we thought, it's becoming faster.
Oh! I can't hold it any longer
coz, it's now greater
Which makes it easier.
Let's quickly do it
That we might reach its peak in season.
Time's almost up for us to be marred or left to live.
It's our only choice for it to be kept burning.
Let me touch thy tatoos
And unveil that which no man has
Ever seen. Just this once, so as to sow a seed
For here they come to mar us,
And destroy all we both worked for.

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.

And i see your beautyfull eyes 
And it kills my heart
If i could ask you out
Take a walk on the sands
And hold you in the harms

The Case Against The Moon

She held the case against the moon
in bubbled glasses sea green hewn
and whispered nothings to the fish
her sea fins swishing at her wish
"The case against the moon", she said,
"began the day that I was wed
and on that day the tide pulled back
to swirling waves to ships attack
It 'twas this day my love embarked
a voyage to sustain my heart
while I a lowly mermaid be
he came to set my spirit free...
His ship was bitten by the wind
a low and moaning hull of tin
His eyes of coal to be immersed
while I searched for my wedding purse
Pearls from oysters for my crown
and seaweed stitched a wedding gown
His laugh and all his love did die
and, on my fins, I know not why
And so bold moon, I challenge you
to bring the worst that you can do
and I will fight with all my will
until the tides return to still."
The passive moon, it heaved a sigh
and tides began to do or die
while waves in turmoil turned to swell
the fish turned too, and wished her well.
She threw her glasses to the sea
and dove to indigo caves once free
to tether nets of liquid ore
to quell the moon forever more
On flying fish she pulled her nets
beyond the sun's impartial sets
to catch the moon and hurl her down
a luminous splash, and then no sound
The earth went dark, the sea went cold
all mermaids there went grey and old
The sea floor shook at the moon's embrace
in a glowing ripple of pure disgrace
Still in the sky in purple wind
the mermaid whispered: "I have sinned"
She shed a thousand briny tears
and flew the skies with grief and fears
'till deciding at last what she should do
She set a course to save the moon.
She dove to the bottom of a sea of light
and what she saw was quite a sight
The broken pieces in scattered glow
This wasn't the moon she used to know
So gently, with fins and liquid lips
she balanced a shard on her mermaid hips
and flew to the ink, to the sky of sorrow
with a sadness of what would be brought the morrow
The sliver she placed in the sky that night
became the "new moon" to dimly light
the ocean each month to gently grieve
it's ships and it's mermaids to long bereave.

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.

tangled little hearts

My hope for old
when floors are cold
we lay with no regret

like blowing trees
arms and knees 
tangled tide of sweat

when all would think
the sun has drank
all passion from the breast

our secret soul
still sexual
put weary bones to test

grandchildren laugh
we take a bath
and tell them not to listen

they’ll roll their eyes
and act surprised
when wrinkled folks are kiss’n

you’ll tease my lips
with naughty nips
and tell me to be slow

my heart would blast
could be the last
what better way to go

to meet the end
two old friends
that know each hidden part

who’ve loved a life
man and wife
with tangled little hearts

The way you move your head to the groove
The smell of your skin
Your persistant reminding of your own man hood
Your way of getting what you want with out asking
The love you search for that’s everlasting

A beautiful soul that’s what I see
Handsomely put together just you and me
My inspiration that’s what you are
Intimidation hangs ova me like a wound or scar
Finally love has found its way home to me
And I must say it happened beautifully

Your my inspiration!

OVERrated SEX

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

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.

Slow Dance

"I'll never stop loving you"
That's what he said
The day we were wed
It lasted for a year or two
Until he said we're through
He still comes around 
But between us, not even a sound
I don't know what happened or why
But everyday I cry
We are still married
Even though the feelings are buried
We stay together for the kids
Although common sense forbids
I still love him very much
And I long for his touch
I can see in his eyes
That he too cries
I can see he still loves me
I remember the day he got on one knee
It's thoughts like these
That make me want to say please
Please, I beg with all my heart
I can't stand to be apart
I ask you to come back into my life
So I can again be your wife.

"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~

Dreamy

Promises come out on a daily basis from him While others made lies ~ all of them Tears they stained on my maiden cheeks Dying of malnutrition for so many weeks Marine kisses brighten up my heart Learning his language from end to the start Backwards dreams dampen my flannel sheets Not too many lovable reserved seats Learning that his strength wraps my soul As he heals my heart from this unfair toll Blinding white dress falls past my feet Best day of my life I begin to weep Platinum band around my finger from him Watching at the alter ~ all of them Blushed-up cheeks and ocean-blue eyes Found my winner after so many tries Open and honest is how we began Getting married on a brand-new land Been together 1 year now with not too many fights Me and him correcting each others wrongs and rights Looks at me and says those sacred words Everything so quiet but the beach and the birds

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

As your wife

The biggest day has come, the day we say our I dos and means we will be spending the rest
of our lives together. As you stand at the alter and the music plays our flower girl walk
down the the isle throw red rose petals and you anxiously wait your future wife walking
the isle in her white dazzling wedding dress and you look back in amazement at the beauty
of the figure being lead by her father at first and then he releases her to walk by
herself the rest  of the way; and just as she reaches you she stops and stands beside you
and both of your hearts are pounding with excitement and everyone sits as the wedding
proceeds. As you  express to her in your wedding vow how much you mean to her and she
exchange to you her undying love and gratitude towards you and how she is blesed to have
someone like you about to enter into her life; you and her exchange wedding rings and it
is finally getting to the moment long awaited when the officiator ask you if you take her
to be your wife, to have and to hold,in sickness and in health till death do you part and
you say "I do" and he ask the same to her and she says "I do", he tell you that you and
her are now pronounced husband and wife and that you may kiss your bride and you uncover
her face from her veil that kept face hidden and you look into her eyes for the moment
before you kiss the love of your life.

Love at first sight

The first time I saw you 
I knew one thing for sure 
I was so love sick 
and you were my cure 

I waited for you 
for so very long 
Nights of loneliness 
yearning to belong 

Into the arms of a lover 
Into the heart of a friend 
I felt when I held you 
my heart start to mend 

You've given your love 
to this heart once alone 
Became my friend--my love 
and together we've grown 

We will continue to grow 
forever my dear 
When it comes to love 
Please know I'm sincere 

I thank you so much 
for all that you do 
I've loved you since 
the first time I saw you

~*~ He's My One And Only! ~*~

I meet this boy with these gorgeous eyes. 
He spoke to me with such a sweet voice. 
Since the day I meet him, he's been all I can think about. 
I think about him when I wake up, through out the whole day, and he's the last thing I 
think about when I go to sleep. 
He's what i dream and always have dreamed about. 
He has everything in a man that I have always wanted.
He's sweet, caring, compassionate, and a great boyfriend.
He tells me all the time how much he loves me and what the future holds for us both. 
He tells me things no other boyfriend has EVER told me. 
He speaks to my heart. He know's everything about me.
He's the love of my life and my soul mate. But answer me this?
How can you tell when someone's your soul mate? How can you really tell?
Can you see it in there eyes? The way they speak to you? The way there touch feels? 
Tell me how do you really know? The way i can tell is, by the way he speaks and looks at 
me. It's just something about him that makes me feel comfortable around him. Never have 
any doubts to be with him or around him. He makes me feel safe and that he'll always be 
there to protect me. Always be there to save me. He's my one and only and always will be.

Our Wedding Day

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

Queen

When I  look into your eyes
I see the reflection of my love
To love a queen as beautiful as you
Is one of the highest blessings that God has given to me
Finding passion and grace within our kiss
The softness of our lips and the sweet movements of our hips
Tranquilizing me with your tenderness and dedication of our love
Is far more richer than money could buy
To know I walk with you in my soul each passing 
Second
Minute
And hour of my days
You are the queen that holdsthe key to my heart
The sunshine when the sky is grey
Only the feeling of your love has made me strong
For that my Lady you are my Queen
Love you for eternity with the deepest of depth within my soul
I Love You

Mazeltov

This is the first time I’ve been in the synagogue down the street. There are many unfamiliar people I have to greet. The sun is setting, and there is a crepuscular light. My friends Isadore and Becky are getting married tonight. The two mothers escort Becky as she wears her white gown. Isadore is introduced by the two fathers from out of town. They come together under the chuppah canopy. The rabbi and a chazzan are conducting the ceremony. For everybody here, it is a time to rejoice. The chazzan leads the singing with his baritone voice. Becky makes three circular walks around Isadore. I was unaware of the prayers that were recited before. Isadore and Becky then exchange their gold rings. Seven close family members give their blessings. Then comes the part of the wedding that is most fine. The rabbi gives the bride and groom a glass of wine. With his right foot, Isadore steps on the empty goblet. With the breaking comes the loud cheer nobody can forget. “Mazeltov” cuts right through me like a knife. Together, the bride and groom begin a new life.

Christian Wine

 Christian Wine 
Christian Wine 
 
Fifteen Fabel 
  
Christian Wine 
 
CharlaX Fabels 
 
Most men reiterate the infirmities of flesh the scars so proud to show so scary 
but so worthwhile like Tom Sawyers Toe. The boys eye meet on the street hold 
up they shirts and say look so neat the knife came all the way across and then 
they brag so braggart the facts and get another illegal drink for most of them use 
the alley they are too young to sit the bar stool anyway. The seldom used door 
long locked against the thief they lean upon each other's arm in misery for one 
so young to fall prey to john barely corn. 
The eye used to drink it down convinced it was the best thing in town and let me 
tell you all it was hard to put it down but the punch line of my story is the sobriety. 
Jesus saves in different ways each person is not the same. He never changes 
but the person changes to fit the mold of HIS direction. The soups cold and the 
meat is not too hot and the butter never melts but eye am so happy not to drink. 
The wet rain falls upon my brow and makes me frown but somehow the son 
always shines for me as well and love is just around. 
The edges of my mind are filled with happiness her name is love she is ewe my 
loneliness is gone my loveliness has come. 
Rules for English words stop me from making rhymes and so the words come 
out so strang and yet she thinks she loves she moves the mountains between 
us and GOD is in my heart and love is also there from her to make me live just 
until it is time to die and leave her to carry on in Heaven to build a place to stay a 
picnic ready to be eaten in the grass of Heaven just inside the doorway. 
There were many people stories in my bible to read there was a Nazarene who 
never cut his hair it is said they never drink wine? 
He is drinking wine in Heaven with his JESUS now.

that i might

That I might be a drop of the sweetest rain
To fall upon your face
Trace the lines of your lips
And rest inside your mouth

That I might be consumed
And evenly dispersed
Among your being
To enrich 
To give life to
To be united with
You

The Perfect Hand (John&Kelly)

More than a game, it was a heart from 
  a royal flush. I saw her every flaw which
told me her true hand. A slight twitch 
  in her eye told the bluff, as she tugs 
her earlobe and raises the stakes. I call
  her on the hand that would send her to
bankruptcy. She reveals a straight flush. I glance
  over my fool's hand and fold. It was only 
one heart away from a royal flush....At least
  thats what I tell my wife.

Wedding Vows

With this ring
I will wed
Then I'll take
 You home to bed
Honor and cherish

Always
