Happiness All Along

It took most of the day before the sun broke through the rain clouds. The only one who seem to enjoy it was my daughters Siamese cat Keo. He had gotten into a bag of catnip on my desk and had catnip all over my papers and keyboard. At least he tired himself out and is no longer jumping on my desk. 
Sometimes life appears to have options, today there seem to be none in sight. If I didn't know better I would have thought it was a rainy day Monday as I tried to sleep it away. 
There was a conversation that came to mind. My daughter was having one of her drama moments... breaking young men's hearts. One of the young men messaged me and said I would have given her everything. She said " he couldn't give me happiness" Bad move, she is like her mother, leading with her heart. Though it is true the apple sometimes doesn't fall far from the tree. She is much wiser than I was at her age. I saw true happiness in her eyes, the sparkles, she smiled through them and I can't say I had seen that look in her before. You can't put a price tag on happiness and though I believe that it is an emotion that lays dormant, some people do have the ability to trigger the emotion in others. 

I failed to see the sunshine,
as I thought the rain had won, 
I woke up and sadness not 
realizing I had happiness all along.

It was there when the morning birds 
chirped a sweet love song and 
again in the hills where the trillium
are blooming so ever strong. 

I didn't realize I held it in my heart, 
the magic of happiness and the
the warmth we shared from
the very start. 

I failed to see the sunshine, 
as I thought the rain had won, 
I woke up and sadness not 
realizing I had happiness all along.

Leo Sayer - When i need you

Rain Globe

As close as the stars
to the dark night sky,
is the warm love that
embraces you and I.

There is no division,
you can't separate with time,
we are truly forever
just you and I.

As close as the stars
to the dark night sky,
is the warm love that
embraces you and I.

Go ahead and look to the stars,
my stars are your stars, no matter
how far.

Go ahead and look to the sea,
it always meets the shore,
like your love as it
awakened me.


Living in a snow globe
in the month of may,
shake it up and watch
the rain makes it way.

Sometimes there is sadness,
loneliness and fear and
I shake the snow globe
to bring you here.

Snow to raindrops,
tears to a smile,
I'm living in a rain globe
to keep you around.


It is in the silence
that I hear your voice,
the sweet song of love
whispering words of joy.

Bringing you much closer
closer than ever before,
beyond the many miles
is the gift of my forevermore.

You never leave my heart,
you are always on my mind,
here , there and everywhere
it is always you and I.

When I wake up in the morning,
throughout each second of my day
whether I am dreaming or awake
you always find your way.

I felt the chill of time,
a reminder of the day,
when  you first said hello
and my life forever changed.

I tried to shake it ,
but shiver I must ,
it is a reminder of
the power that love
has over lust.

Nature is at my fingertips,
rainbows and sunshine,
as I whisper dear clouds
please send him my kiss.

The sky was cloudless,
no raindrops can be found,
again I found myself
talking to cherry blossoms
as swirl around.

My gift is made of memories
they touch my heart,
make each day bright
like that of spring.

Nature is at my fingertips,
rainbows and sunshine,
as I whisper dear clouds,
please send to him my kiss.

Spring is LIght

Though it may seem that winter is struggling to hold on with another burst of cold weather with a dusting of  snow, it is impossible for it to deny us of the light. Kind of like the song " into each life a little rain must fall" but as I sit here gazing out the window watching the fickle season of spring tease us with an array of weather, I cannot deny since I met you, the sky is bluer, the sun brighter and the clouds more inviting.

I found solace in your memory,
to alleviate my broken heart.
The restlessness of the moment
begs to bring you from a far.

Shuffling the cards played
to rearrange my troubled life,
Trying to quickly erase the
loneliness both day and night.

Time places limits upon the soul,
reminds me of the day you took hold.
From the moment my sky of blue,
was written with words of I love you.


I watched the rain falling from the sky and
looked to the heavens and to my surprise,
there were signs of the love you gave to me,
like a warm spring day and a new dream.

I listened to the song birds as they whistled their song,
musical in nature, I thought I'd hum along.
Simple reminders of what you mean to me,
you are my sunshine and my warmest memories.

Just like the season
that is upon us now,
sometimes we have sunshine
and a few snowflakes falling down.

The skies are bluer
and the dreams surreal,
as I step upon the passing clouds
and your love once more feel.

My Soul

If you read or watched a good book or movie for the umpteenth time, you find that you sometimes interpret it differently or miss a scene that you hadn't seen previously. Mostly likely we relate to a scene based on where we are at the moment. I realize more now than ever that everyone has a very interpretation , like the script of life. 

I can't tell you how anyone else can see, 
but for me the blue sky is more than a dream. 
Like the mountains as they reach so ever high, 
I can feel my soul soar beyond this earthly time.

I know love has taken me for a ride, 
showed me the world through very different eyes. 
Like the simplicity of wild daisy in the field
and the journey as we crest the many hills. 

I know love has taken me by surprise, 
lifted my heart and soul many times. 
Each morning as the sun begins to rise
I thank the Lord that you are by my side. 

Reflected in each raindrop, 
in the rays of the sun, 
I can see the magic that
created our sweet love. 

Arched across the blue sky,
rainbows bridge you and I 
and that is how I hold you close
heart , soul and mind. 


We choose our own destiny
even though detours are written into the journey. 

No one man's journey weighs heavier than another...

I vote next winter we study hibernating... 
I think I can sleep through winter. 

I am not prepared for tomorrow, 
but I don't think any of us are. 

There are so many kinds of love,
one does not compare to the other. 
It was the cardinals at the feeder, 
feathers were bold and bright, 
that reminded me of the strength
we all need to stand up and fight. 

It is not the need of weapons, 
for our struggles are like a sea, 
it is our endurance that reveals
that we can accomplish anything. 

It has to be the season
it reminds me of you,
and lifts me from the earth
in the dance that lovers do.

My feet are anchored,
but my soul is soaring free.
I am in the arms of love,
cradled so peacefully. .

It is the blue sky,
the early rise of the sun,
the song that filled the air,
the love we both share.

It is in the silence and
in the dark of night,
when I close my eyes,
it is you I am holding tight.

It is in the laughter and
in the tears that fall
the memories of a lifetime
that to my soul call.

Each day reveals the treasure,
the happiness from deep in side
from the memories you have given
and our hearts that so entwine.

The world a journey that few
never completely understand
as every road a circling detour
that has a walking hand in hand.

I have met a lot of people and
I have seen so many things
but as I stay on the journey
I realize you are my everything.

Earth has little meaning,
for our hearts and souls are one,
as we have found our place
in the heaves above.

This is our love story,
it was always meant to be,
written in the wind,
soaring high and free.

One day our time will pass
and rivers will run dry
but our love was meant to last
and forever it will be.

Your voice is all I hear,
as I wake from the dream
and find no matter our travels
you are always here with me.

To deny makes me a fool,
as loving you has a magic hold
an embrace that won't let go
and deep inside me grows.

Like a tree deprived of water,
my thirst for you makes me hotter.
Ignited by need and a passionate desire
my soul feels the fire.

You are always in my arms
no matter where and how far.
From the moment I say good night
till I wake to the morning light.

I could go on forever
documenting the falling of a feather,
the joy of that day ,
when an angel found his way.

Till the Stars Blanket My Dreams

Life always circles back to choice. As I ponder on right and wrong and heartache and happiness, I find myself trapped between a small part of reality or the whole picture. Precious is that of life, time and the faith that tomorrow will come and we will bathe in the happiness of shared hearts as we embrace in the walk of life.

I can feel your love as it cradles
me both night and day, while it
makes each and every moment
feel like the month of May.

I can hear your voice as it
speaks to me, whispering of
a love that was always meant
to be.


Everything is fading
except for your love,
it is the magic of life
that meets in the heavens
La la la, I sing to you,
La, la, la I need you,
La, la, la, I'll not let go
for I love you so.

Weeping willow,
shallow indeed,
never took the
winters, uprooted
and no longer
there to seed.

Rare moments,
captured on my side,
touched my heart
and made me cry.

Weeping willow,
no longer standing tall,
first the branches fell
and that left nothing
but emptiness and hell.

I said goodbye long ago
and still I feel the haunting
that wouldn't let me go.


We are not promised tomorrow and
the season cannot always be spring
and that is why I celebrate the warmth
of  love you so kindly share with me. 

I'll not allow my heart to fill with tears, 
for I will hear your laughter as to my 
heart it sings, from the moment I 
wake up till the stars blanket my dreams.

sail away....

I looked out the window of a starless night, only clouds and darkness in sight. I tried to remember what it felt like to be, as close as the sand to the mighty sea. The memories have not faded, though distant they maybe, as I try to find a way to bring you close to me. The wind speaks in riddles, the night plays a game as if it the tune of  life fiddles the ache away.. Night turning to morning, morning no longer filled with pain as  I try to understand the meaning of each and everyday. I can love forever if forever makes you mine, I can dream the dream that stops the hands of time. I can share each moment and bring happiness to life, I can keep on waiting, if waiting makes you mine.

Here are my dreams,
my dreams of you,
and here is a memory
to see our love through.

Here are the moments
when you first said hello
and the warmth of spirit
that has yet to let go.

I tried to find the meaning
of this journey we are on,
where there is so much
heartache and loss of song.

It is when I see the light that the darkness make an appearance.
