Remind Me

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

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

You Touched My Heart

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

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

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

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

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

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

So let us pray 
To never go astray
And to always pray

Amen.

A Candlelight Dinner

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

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

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

Give Praise To God

Let us pray this very day, that God will surely come our way, to 
give us wisdom and knowledge from above, but most imporrtant his
precious love.  Oh give praise to God everyday for helping us along the way.

His love for us is so real, it is the kind of love that helps us live.  We share
his grace, love and his power all of this and more because he loves us so.
Why be miserable, sad and blue? when you should be giving praise to God who
loves you.  Why not praise God from the moment you rise, to thank him for
his sacrifice.  

Praise God for love he shows everyday, no matter what we do or say, God loves
us anyway.  He blesses us daily with gifts from above, food, water, air, all of
this let us know he really do care.  So why not praise God  for his love, so 
jump, and shout, praise God without a doubt.  So let's praise God for his love.

Tornado In Alabama, April 27, 2011

Oh how furious it was, God sent his power from above.  He let the Black clouds 
and the rain come gushing through our window panes.  Oh what scary a sight to see,
I felt like running, I tried to free me.  The gushing winds blowing so fast, I never
thought I would last.  The winds he sent was meant to be, to warn all of us our
souls need to be free.  

He sent his fury fast and long, we were all surprised where it roamed.  The tornadoes
went from one county to another, sending its wrath, killing, destroying and giving us
trouble.  Cries were heard throughout the night, People screaming and praying with
all their might.

The tornadoes did not stop, they destroyed our lands, and ruined our crops.
The devastation it left on our minds  is here to stay and will never go away.
This is a terrible storm we will never forget, because it lasted a long time and all
of us were upset.  We hoped and prayed it would pass us by, asking and praying
to God, please dont let us die!

We all tried to seek shelter in our homes, before we knew it, everything was gone.
Some of us found ourselves standing outside with nothing hardly for cover, we were
screaming and crying searching for one another.

The Perfect Love

Your love is perfect as can be, because you really satisfy me.  I love the
way you say my name, You make me feel like i am in the hall of fame.  Your
loving arms wrapped around my waist is such a sweet, caring embrace.

Your love is perfect as can be, especially when your face is touching mines,
it sends chills down my spine.  The way in which you touch my hand let me
know that you understand.  Your love is perfect as can be.

There is no other love out there for me, I love the way you talk to me. setting my
heart and soul free.  There can never be another love like you, who is perfect in
everything he do!  I dont not want to ever lose you.

I Want My Alone Time

 I want my alone time, just you and I
dont care if no one even come by.
I want my alone time the way it used to be,
noone but you and me. 

I want my alone time without any interruptions,
We need no introduction, only you and me, this is
the way I want it to be,

I want my alone time and need it now,
We do not need anyone to show us how.
Just You for Me and Me for You
we both know exactly what to do!

The Hidden Sin

What is sin? It is something that is buried within.  Oh no! it is the
hidden sin, it comes back to haunt you again and again.  Sometimes it
is near, sometimes it is far, also it can be a hidden war that lurks in our
inner-beings to haunt us again and again.

We love today and hate tommorrow, what is this hidden sorrow?  It is the
thing that comes back to haunt us again and again.  It makes you happy, it
makes you sad, it loves to make you feel real bad. So what is this hidden sin?
The thing that come back again and again,

Sometimes you are good, sometimes you are bad, it gives you pain you never had.
What is this hidden sin? The joy and pain that is hidden within, "This is the hidden
sin".
