The River

With the news dwelling on the negative, you can't help but think about people and their journeys. I thought back to a time when a friend sent me a book to read. I walked away with the knowledge that good or bad we all have choices and a journey to complete and with that comes valuable lessons.
Sometimes when we feel lost the most is when we are actually at the stage of accomplishment, for every struggle is like a story with a moral.


I see the river,
the water deep,
your hand in mine
the grass at our feet.

I see the stars,
too many to count,
our hearts in unison
rhythmically beat.

I see the road,
that lies ahead
looks a whole lost easier
with you as my friend.

I see our forever,
you and I,
a love sweet
it challenged time.

I see the river,
the water deep,
your hand in mine
the grass at our feet.

~

To some it is just a river,
where water passes by,
flowing north to south,
like your heart to mine.

Miles and miles
for a thousand years or more,
has nothing on this love of ours,
that will last forevermore.


To some its just a river,
where water passes by,
flowing north to south
like your heart to mine.

Reflections of a life time,
as the waves rush to shore,
leaving behind the memories
of you who I adore.

To some it is just a river,
where water passes by,
flowing north to south,
like your heart to mine.

Tenderly

Love is a comfort that
embraces the moment.
 
 




Rainbows and a summer breeze,
arched high above the green trees.
Picture perfect the view that
begins this day anew.

There is a distance between us
and yet we are as close as two
can be, as I drift into the moment,
your love holds me tenderly.

One tear for the time that kept
you  so far away from me
and  another for the days
that are quickly passing.

So I took to the blue sky
to bring your love near,
every thought I have is
a memory we have shared.

There is no understanding
the heartache from inside,
so I reach once more for you
and to pull you to my side.

Rainbows and a summer breeze,
arched above the green trees.
Picture perfect the view that
begins this day anew.

~

It was the shoulder of kindness
that revealed the darkness that looms.


~
Just love, nothing more, nothing less.

The Sudden Breeze

The sudden breeze
and a surprising chill,
touched my heart and
allowed me to feel.

Our love soaring free
dances atop the willow tree,
rainbows arched the blue
to bridge a love true.

Goodbye day, hello night
star jumping a delight,
smiles that bring
the joy of love from you
to me.

The sudden breeze
and  a surprising chill,
touched my heart and
allowed me to feel.

~

I wanted the words
to tell you how I feel,
I searched the earth
and the heavens as if
they were standing still.

I thought I'd take a moment
and write a few for you,
the words of love and
how our friendship grew.

Some say goodbye and
others just leave,
but a real friends stands
beside through the time
of need.

I wanted the words
to tell you how I feel,
I searched the earth
and the heavens as if
they were standing still.

I took to the sky and like
a dream I left for you
a message that would be
delivered via the heavens blue.

No explanation of the need
to shout from the mountain
what you truly mean to
me.



Good Night My Love

I don't want to wake up,
if you are not really here,
leave me quietly sleeping
while your arms I share.

I don't want to wake up
to find my self alone,
so I'll stay here till tomorrow
dreaming as I go.

I don't want to wake up
when the darkness rules,
send me your sunshine
it is love greatest tool.

I don't want to wake up,
to find my pillow in tears,
emotional heartache
begs to hold you here.

I don't want to wake up
so I'll just say good night,
my heart at the door ,
my soul has taken flight.

I don't want to wake up,
to find it all disappeared,
my arms empty and
pillows all bare.

... to land upon your lips.

Listen to the hollow
and the sounds of spring,
the song birds singing
high up in the trees.

Listen to your heart
and how it speaks to you,
scripted to the heavens
in the skies so blue.

Listen to the angels
and you will surely hear,
they are singing our song
for you who dared to care.

Listen to the morning
as I send to you  my kiss,
sweet showers of love
to land upon your lips.

Listen to the dreams,
they have cast you the lead
and that is the magic
of warm memories.

Listen to the moment,
it's yours and mine alone,
no matter where we travel
the love within us flows.

... a moment in the day.

Incredible moments, the joy of love
when we journey through this life
heart to heart as one.
 
`
 
Battling the darkness,
weeps tears of the heart,
wandering through a thicket,
of briar twined brush.
 
~
 
Drapes of melancholy
replaced by love.
 
 
 

The Sunshine in My Morning.

There is never a sign of loneness
nor varied shades of despair
as long as I can truly dream
I have you right here.

The sunshine in my morning,
the stars in my nightly sky,
my only reason for living,
the love of my life.

In my heart for as long as it beats,
side by side with my soul for all eternity.
True happiness that lovers share
when I close my eyes and see you
there.

The sunshine in my morning,
the stars in my nightly sky,
my only reason for living,
the love of my life.




Moment in a Day

Interpretation... West Side Story was popular when I was in middle school. Of course interpretation varies from our youth to how we view something as an adult, as well from person to person. All that really stood out in the movie is two young lovers and their quest to find where  they belong in the world. The song that she would sing " there is a place for us, somewhere a place for us. Hold my hand and I'll take you there, hold my hand and we're almost there. Somewhere, somehow , we'll find a new way of living." If life is a puzzle and each of us is a piece in the grand puzzle, I question where in it I fit in. Though as I have aged I have come to appreciate who I am.
Though I have tried to keep customers as customers , there are a few who have crossed the line into friendship. With deep concern a hug or two and the warmth of conversation that brings us closer in a world that once seemed to be so big.
As people questioned different issues in my life. I found myself responding with the same few words
"it is what it is ."  The journey and the people we meet becomes part of the story like a petal blowing in the wind. That is until the petal slowly falls to the ground and lays in stillness as if to document another season.

Some have touched my heart
and brought joy to the day and
a few have created memories
that never ever fades away.

Tears have fallen on the day
 like a storm in the month of May.
Until I reached to the heavens high
and pulled you and your love to
my side.

Some have touched my heart
and brought joy to the day and
a few have created memories
that never ever fade away.

Some are in passing
only a moment to spare
unlike your sweet love
that we forever share.
