Unexpected events

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

I'M JUST PROPOSIN'

I’d been in a two-year relationship
He even got down on one knee and did propose
He’s still the only man ever to ever buy me a red rose
But his mother hated me I wasn’t the right one for her son
She put her oar in and caused trouble and soon the damage was done
We split – I couldn’t be bothered with men I didn’t want the hurt
I threw myself into charity work at the local hospital
Radio Lollipop is a hospital radio station especially for kids
I had my own radio show – something I would love to do again
Bob was an engineer and built studios  - we became friends
One Saturday we were decorating a float for the Lord Mayor’s procession
I was wearing a tight low cut bright pink T shirt…how could he not notice me!
Started dating in June, just before Christmas we got the flu
We looked after each other at his house ...I never moved out
On Valentines Day 1989 I proposed to him – even though it wasn’t a leap year
I’d got up to get ready for work – he was still in bed.
I knelt down by the bed and asked him to marry me… he said yes! PHEW
We married two years to our very first date
Twenty-three years later we are still going strong

My Jazmine

Her eyes are brown,
Her smile is wide.
she has stolen my heart,
she holds my dreams.
she never ceases to amaze me;
her voice is like soft music in my ears,
her kiss is like a sweet cherry freshly picked,
she smells like a full bloomed rose.
as i hold her now
i see my life and wife in her eyes.
she is my bellissima amour.
we grew up together,
we used to play together,
who could have known?
she would be my love
my one, my only
my Jazmine.

ON THIS DAY

All of my thoughts and emotions
All of my attention and affections
Everything from adolescent to maturity
The search for special one was launched
I became the interviewer
And all the elegant became my interviewees
Hoping for something special

So, on this day
I just want to give you me
I want to give you all the attention in the world
I know you’ve seen the color of my love
Embrace yourself love
Coz on this day
This you’ve never seen
And this you’ve got to see
The whole world will seem like you and I
And all will happen on this day

So on this day
I just want to appreciate you
And let you know that
No present is more than a present 
Of having you present in my life
No rose can arouse me more
No other brown chocolate can change me
From being there for you with you

On this day
As for promises made can be broken
As for everything said can change
As for our love is eternity
As for words written will remain
And for our love so special

Yet this day may pass 
But as for our love will remain
Memories shared will remain

So on this day
I just want to say
You’re what have been missing in my life
Coz, life only makes sense when you know
There is someone worth living for
And for me, you’re the one

So, on this day
I will give you what you can never 
Find anywhere that is me.
On this day I want you to know that
I love you more

By All of This - Ah, Wanton Bliss

That passion’s night, to make me sigh, my love seized several beams from sky and shaped a ring of moonstone bright. To make me sigh that passion’s night. My darling beau, to make me smile, then star-shine stole so he could style a necklace rare with diamond’s glow. To see me smile, my darling beau. Dear Valentine, to dazzle me, took whitest pearls from twilight’s sea, with starry strand to intertwine. To dazzle me, dear Valentine. My true love wooed with more than these, not only sight, but ear to please! Two birds he brought that softly cooed. With more than these, my true love wooed. With rose bouquet, with kisses sweet, he made my heart then faster beat. Artisan of romantic play - with kisses sweet, with rose bouquet. By all of this, in motion set was what I’d never known as yet. It burst, then flowed. . . Ah, wanton bliss, in motion set by all of this! (BTW, this is pure imagination, people!!!

To A Secret Love

In my heart I've always loved you
Always thought you good and kind
Though I know you do not know me
Know you're always on my mind

Nights of darkness pass unbroken
By your smile and gentle ways
How I wish that you were present
Here beside me all my days

Light or darkness, rain or shadow
Thoughts of you are light to me
Now I pray that as you read this
Thoughts of me would kindly be

I would be your slave forever
Just to bring a smile or two
Have you walking life beside me
All your blest commands to do

How I hope that you will greet me
Pray you'll see my desp'rate case
Should you not, my heart would founder
Longing for your smiling face

My Heart is Set

My heart is set in love for thee
I sha'nt be satisfied
Until thou come along with me
The swells of life to ride

My heart is set upon thy face
So lovely, so sublime
Could I but drink thy charming grace
'Twould end my earthly time

My heart is fixed on that of thee
I find it ever true
I would thy servant gladly be
If serve I could for you

My heart is fixed upon thy voice
With silver tones and clear
To hear it oft would be my choice
Throughout my ev'ry year

My heart is set upon thy smile
Upon thy sparkling eyes
For thee I'd walk the extra mile
And comfort all thy sighs

In all, my heart is wholly placed
Within thy tender hands
To hold or break as well thou say'st
Upon life's shifting sands

To My Valentine

I remember the day,
You came into my life,
Making my heart feel a warmth,
That I've never felt before,Your beauty is unlike any other,
For it is like a beautiful painting,
It shins all the time,During the rain or shine,
Your beautiful words,Your beautiful smile,
Your wonderful personality,
Just everything about you,
Makes a great gift to give,
And you are giving it to me,
Which I'm proud to have,
It all in my life,
For I will charish you always,
And try never to hurt you,
Giving you all that you need in return,
Celebratinh our love for each other,
All the days of our lives,Charishing all of our precious moments,
We share through the years,
Holding you tightly in my heart,
For you are my love of my life,
That I never want to loose,
And today is one special day,
That is for you,
My special Valentine.

Can you feel it

Love in the air
can you smell it
Always so loud 
can you hear it 
Out on the Prowl
Can you see it
Always wanting more 
Do you need it

Undying Question

A tin of chocolates
The sun slowly retreating
In beautiful flame

A glance in secret
The firm push of resolution
Butterflies dancing

Girlie smile
The light of welcome
At last --"Will you be mine?"

Interstellar Love

I searched earth and my love was 
nowhere to be found.

Now I travel to distant galaxies searching 
for my love in space

where it's cold and there's no sound. 
Where could she be?

Is she in an alternate universe. One that's 
parallel to mine?

Do I have to travel through a wormhole? Is 
she in another

place in time? I asked the stars where can 
I find her and 

none of them could tell me. I asked an 
alien sun but he gave

no answer. His bright unusual light only 
making it hard for me to

see. I asked every neutron star and every 
pulsar. Every nebula

cloud I've come across. I even asked a 
supernova where she 

could be. But his answers turned out to be 
false. None of the

constellation of stars seem to know where 
my baby is. Orion

doesn't know. Gemini doesn't know. 
Neither Andromeda or 

Sirius. I'm in interstellar despair, travelling 
through the deepness

of space. Going from one universe to the 
next and hoping that one

day I'll see my baby's face. I don't know 
how many light years I'll

have to travel. Or how many cosmic doors 
I'll have to knock on. All

I know is that the desire to search for my 
love beyond the stars will 

never be far from gone....

The Other Stuff

I wanted to buy a dozen red roses
But they refused to touch your hand
The chocolates said that, "You're much sweeter"
And, "Your lips would make them bland"

So I tried to find just the right card
But the words just ran away
There was nothing that the cards could do
There was nothing the words could say

I wanted to cook a Valentine's feast
But I fear it's just a waste
Your smile has crippled my need for food
My appetite's been erased

Then I tried to buy a diamond ring
But your beauty stole its shine 
For it's never seen a love like ours
One like yours and mine

So I just want to say, "I love you"
And forget the other stuff
So Happy Valentines Day sweet darling
And I hope that that's enough

Abstract Affection

I always  explored the desert of love
When your image, reflected my mind,
My curiosity was in the air above
Because loving you is one of a kind

I'm so happy in the blue memorable days
that angels brought you here,
My emotions start twisted day by day,
because of you my sorrow are gone my dear

Your personalities cannot be enumerated,
You're such a blessing from God from Heaven
Because from now on I dedicated,
My love, My heart till my spirit will go for Eden

A women like you is like a treasure
A Treasure that will be keep forever,
Because your Golden Hand, 
Cured My heart and made it Pure,
That's Why I'll never end this chain of love, NEVER...

My everlasting Love will be yours Forever
I'll promise to continue, the love story that I was started
And  as we encounter different obstacles and become older,
My affection to you will never be ended...

For What Its Worth

My heart is yours
For what its worth
It beautiful and cruel 
and it misleads many with lovers eyes 
to follow what they believe are stars in the night
Like fairys dancing in the dark
It will lure you in with shining lights
And goad you into a taste
Of wine posined with a bit of lust
Fully believing that you are in love 
It will take you by the hand
And drag you to the rocky cliffs
Convince you you'll want to take a swim 
Breathing in the salty taste 
You wont realize that as time passes
Your only wasting away 
It will tell you sweet lies
They mean nothing of the truth
Though it may perhaps care
Its only infatuated with you 
It will tell you that you have wings
And push you to fly to the heavens
But when you spread your arms to soar
You'll realize that is was just a fake image
It will hold you gently
Like an andaconda in a dream
Feasting like a carnivor 
Silencing your scream 
You'll find that you are trapped
With no way to be released
Until it wakes from its dream 
- Until it wakes from its dream
If you want it you can have it
Though it will only be on lend
My heart is yours 
For whats its worth 
Remember I warned you my friend

Dinner for two

Light snow floating from up above
As I hold your hand as we dance
On the wooden deck by the shore.
Candle light fills room in bright array
While such fragrant roses fill the nose.

Short red satin dress flows like soft waves
Down your sides accentuate the curves
As light beams from golden locks.
Cleavage showing enough to intice senses
As my eyes gaze into seas of blue sky's
In your eyes.

Glasses of sweet wine mingle with the rose
Filling the room with such a sweet boutique .
Asparagus and white fish on the plate
Looks so elagant and nice.

Cancel Valentine's Day

I used to write you love songs
I use to sing your praise
I thought you could do no wrong
I still think of those days

You were so very special
I showed you everyday
Told you, you were beautiful
In many different ways

Your smile was amazing
Your beauty to behold
Your heart was big as Texas
You couldn't do no wrong

Those days were truly wonderful
Those days were mighty great
Those days were very special
Those days I do not hate

I will not write you a love song
I will not sing you praise
I will not call you sweetie
I will not make your day

Valentine Shopper

I want to shop on Valentine's
but haven't got a date.
I'd buy myself some roses
if it wasn't for I'm straight.

Some chocolate hearts would fill my gut
and card say "I Love You".
But signing it would be in vain
and thanks would never do.

Coupons for a hug and kiss
would make my rainy day.
But everytime I cashed one in
I'd feel a littly gay.

Letters written to my love
would only creep me out.
And knowing they were meant for me
would surely leave no doubt.

Songs of love would fill my heart
if it was meant to be.
But knowing I'm a single guy
would make me want to flee.

Home cooked meals would seal the deal
and I could eat for two.
Until I'm fat and throw me back.
And still have plenty to chew.

FORGET ME - MY VALENTINE

Bloody Valentine..

A hot and heavy passionate night.
The best Valentine's Day I had in years.
Every moment at that point felt right.
Until I heard him accidentally, call out her name.

The way he kissed me, the way he touched me.
Made my skin crawl with envy!
I closed my eyes and opened them to a darker light.
I pushed him away with rage..
Suddenly the love began to fade away into the night.
The flowers he gave me I trashed during the fight.
I end my day with nothing more to say.

Like a thief in the night, my mind drove me insane.
The echoes in my headwear; calling out her name.
My sweet Valentine turned into a passion of crime.
The thought of his heart not completely mine. 
Put a strain on my obsession that I could not tolerate.
Deep pain then came the hate.

At last, ~ by morning light.
I woke up next to the dead.
I found myself all covered up with his blood.
His guts where spread like a blanket all over my bed.
I reached and grabbed a rag and wiped off all his crud.

At last, ~ I felt no longer blind.
I agreed to share what was on his mind.
I send his x-wife half of his heart.
I believe he chose not to forget her, from the start...

MY VALENTINE


On this day, I want to say
Words that forever will stay
In your heart as well as mine
Words silky, smooth, tender and sweet as wine

You were a flower on a tower 
Plucked and firmly planted in my heart
Protected from life’s harsh weather
Lady, you are a treasure....
The source of joy beyond measure

Your rare beauty, my medicine
Your sweet smile, my cure 
Your gentle laughter, assures
Your firm love has made me sure
With you l am secure.....

Rip not my heart for it is yours
Yours I will not for it is mine
Together we 've been woven 
Tangled....with love’s silk and twine
No one in between, can draw a line

Your hurts are mine as well
As are your pains and gains
Sorrows and joys

Come along with me
To our own paradise
Away from love’s parasites
Those liars, cheats and thieves
Who rob others 
Of love’s joy and bliss 
YOU ARE MY VALENTINE.....

A Valentine Poem

He gave her a bunch of roses
deep red and highly scented
sweetly he romanticizes

With loving heart, her, he teases
with his love before her casted
he gave her a bunch of roses

Some may think he needs new lenses
for with comeliness not gifted
sweetly he romanticizes

With all her sweetness she cleanses
a pure soul she had been granted
he gave her a bunch of roses

Her sense of fun amuses 
with her he is so enchanted
sweetly he romanticizes

Over which ring he agonizes
choosing one that could be flaunted
he gave her a bunch of roses
sweetly he romanticizes

I wrote this for a reading I am doing on Valentine's Day yet it is also for all lovers everywhere
