Indulging my most lucid daydreams

Image result for umbrella in the rain

The rain is falling and
the sun can't be seen
as I run through the
raindrops I escape via
my dreams.

There is where I see you
arms opened wide and
I run so very fast to
be there by your side.

The song a bit haunting
escaped from my lips
with words of passion
in each loving kiss.

Seizing the moment
your caress is what I feel,
gentle to my heart for a
second it stood still.

Wipe away the tear drop
no room for sorrow today,
I'm living in a dream and
you're not far away.

Whispers of love

It didn't take a rainbow
or the blue bird in flight,
to bridge the mountains
and place us side by side.

For we are forever joined
two hearts and souls as one,
a true bond of happiness is
sealed with our own special
kind of love.

Whispers of the heart
can be heard from afar,
as I take to the heavens
and find our own star.

I'm gonna close my eyes tonight 
and see you in those dreams of mine,
I'm gonna hold you in my arms and
kiss you through the night.

I'm gonna take my chances 
in this dance we call life.
I'm gonna whisper words of love
to you " the love of my life."


I looked to the heavens,
the stars were so bright
they lit up the sky as if
they turned on the lights.

I reached for your hand
you gave me your heart
and the rest was a part
of God's great plan.


I took to my bedroom,
my pillows seemed alone as
I tried not to let my emotions
get over-blown.

No tears are falling
nor shades of darkness here,
as long as I have your love
I know that you care.


It was so easy,
my hands in the air,
as I reached on out
and pulled you near.

In my arms I held you
if only in my dreams
as my feet left the ground
and I embraced your memory.

Let me love you and
forever you'll be mine,
stopping the clock by
holding still the hands
of time.

From soft whispers
to the songs I sing,
may you hear the words
that only love can repeat.

Let me love you and
forever you'll be mine,
stopping the clock by
holding still the hands 
of time.


Sometimes I feel like I am
swimming against the current.


...or is that screaming in silence?

Dancing on Clouds

                                                          Gaze unto the heavens
                                                          and our love can be found,
                                                          the euphoria  you feel is
                                                          the dance upon the clouds.

                                                           Precious moments
                                                           between you and I,
                                                           souls embrace for
                                                           all of time.

                                                            Special feelings
                                                            that never fade away,
                                                            stronger and stronger
                                                            with each passing day.


Fish jumping as they
spawn down stream,
warm weather arrived
celebrating Spring.

My heart began pounding
as I simply began to dance
while the power of love
placed me in a trance.

Spinning in circles
my feet left the ground,
as the wind blown apple
blossoms wafted down.

La, la la in a dream,
la, la,la you and I ,
la, la, la sweet embrace
la, la, la under blue skies.

Pair of geese in flight
head to their nesting sight,
every morning at the same time,
you can hear them honk as
they fly by.

Dogs lying on the porch
enjoying the morning warmth,
stillness is broken by your smile
that can be felt across the miles.

Happiness is what we share,
two hearts that dared to care
My eyes tightly closed and
I can see what my heart
revealed to me.

La, la la in a dream,
la, la,la you and I ,
la, la, la sweet embrace
la, la, la under blue skies.

Fly Me To The Moon ...smiling and dancing in your arms.


Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)

(Pa pa da ba dá)
Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars
In other words
Hold my hand
In other words darling, kiss me
Fill my heart with song
And let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words
Please be true
In other words
I love you
(Pa pa da ba dá)
Fly me to the moon
Jupiter and Mars
Fly me to the moon
Jupiter and Mars
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon
Fly me to the moon

It's a Wonderful Life

It felt like the official first day of spring. Not to warm and not to cold and flowers blooming everywhere. I felt the warm air brush against my cheek and with shovel in hand began turning the soil. The soil falling between my fingers reminded me of the connection between nature and people. All with the same requirements, sun, water and nourishment and yes a little tender loving care. I find myself on occasion reaching for the stars, just to fall back to earth.

The sun shined brighter and
the sky a soft shade of blue,
as I went about my day ,
my mind drifted to you.

I took to the memories,
the laughter and the smiles
and my heart beat even faster
melting away the miles.

There is something special
that few will ever understand,
when hearts come together
and souls follow the plan.

Bringing a joy to each moment
that I quickly embrace as I
reach for the heavens in our
own magical place.

                                                                 Spring is like a rebirth
                                                       like my heart touched by your love.

Nature documents a day

                                                                    Sit beside me and
                                                                    share in the day
                                                                    hold me close
                                                                    in your own way.

                                                                    Loving you is easy,
                                                                    as my heart reveals,
                                                                    through the dreams
                                                                    just how I feel.


Every now and than I need a reminder " that it's a wonderful life." Even though it is traditionally a Christmas holiday movie, the message is the same all year round. How important we are to each other in a unseen chain of events. I think it was appropriate that my Birthday gift was a gold angel with a bell, with the words written across " every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings."

Hold My Hand

I woke up this morning with the headache from hell. Trying to get motivated to the sound of the rooster crowing was just not panning out. We don't get to this time of our life without a few chapters. That is when you really realize how heavy "the weight of just one tear. "
My get away place over the years where I could think things through was out back by the water fall. There is something about the sound of the water racing over the wall of rocks and settling into a pool of still water that always seems to bring a clarity to life.

The Weight of a Tear

Shed in one tear an ounce of sadness for what may not be,
as it rolls down my cheek it picks up memories. Beautifully
uncomplicated to the seriously naïve as it washed away the
sadness, it washed away the fear but it could never wash
away the love I feel for you my dear. Steadily gaining it
makes a gentle curve, leaning towards hope and faith in
just one little tear and as I catch it in my heart and hold it
so very near, I realized how heavy the weight of just
one tear.

Under the blossom
of the sweet apple tree,
I find myself dreaming
you next to me.

Sharing a moment,
your hand in mine
as we explore the
this love so fine.

Gray skies to blue
sunshine all the day
as I view life in a
unique kind of way.

Leaving our footprints
on the clouds above,
documenting our
special love.


Good morning
little chickadee,
at my window
chirp, chirping.

Skies cloudy 
but not sign of gray,
as the blue skies 
always remain.

Good morning
little chickadee,
celebrating the
first weeks of


Sings ... hum a tune
sing a song, on the
strings of my heart
underneath the stars.

Sweet melody
I'll sing to you
in a soft whisper
to chase the blue.

Hum a tune
sing a song , on
the strings of my heart
underneath the stars.

Tender moments
caught in a dream,
as I hold you close
and closer to me.

Love, love, love

Snow on a Monday
even though it's Spring,
the chill that runs through me
disappeared as I began to dream.

I saw you standing there
your warm arms opened wide
with as sweet invitation to be
there by your side.

I'm gonna love you,
gonna make you smile
as I close the gap in
those awfully long miles.

I'm gonna hold you,
entwined souls as one,
gonna bring you the magic
that comes with our kind
of love.

We were meant to be and
that is based on the facts,
the story of love found
me embracing back.


I placed the pen in my hand
and asked my heart to respond,
it took a moment to comply
as it deliberated with my soul.

I wanted it to be special
unique for only you and I,
a set of words based on emotion
in a combination of heart, soul
and mind.

I gazed up at the heavens
in the clouds the words formed,
made of blue skies and sunshine
it reached deep down to the core.

Intense this feeling of passion
escaped from deep inside
as the yearning for your love
messed with my mind.

My hand glides over the pillow
as I sense your sweet love,
I scrunch the pillow ever close
as I knew you were by my side.

The image is quite haunting
breath taking is the view I see,
the embrace of thin air as my
soul wraps up in you.

I felt your lips sweet to mine
passion infused to last a lifetime,
the taste of honey was bitter sweet
as you are as close as my dream.

Intense the moment
as silence began to rule
and I shouted to replace
what once had a hold.

Love, love , love fleurs from the
garden, du parfum fills the air.
Love, love, love to you my sweet,
a declaration of all we are.

Perfect Birthday Dance ...Closing My Eyes

Sings ....
Put your head on my shoulder
Hold me in your arms, baby
Squeeze me oh-so-tight
Show me that you love me too
Put your lips next to mine, dear
Won't you kiss me once, baby?
Just a kiss goodnight, maybe
You and I will fall in love (you and I will fall in love)
People say that love's a game
A game you just can't win
If there's a way
I'll find it somebody
And then this fool will rush in
Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear
Tell me, tell me that you love me too
(tell me that you love me too)
Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear, baby
Put your head on my shoulder
