Affirmation

When the stars shine
down on the river
and the night whispers
your name.

This is the heavens affirmation
that we were always meant to be,
The truth reveals that our love
is a central part of you and I.

When the ship
passes in the night
and the sailor waves
from the sea.

This is the heavens affirmation
that we were always meant to be.
The truth reveals that our love
love is a central part of you and I.

When the silence is broken
by the sound of your heart
and the emptiness is replaced
by the joy your love sparked.

This is the heavens affirmation
that we were always meant to be.
The truth reveals that our love
is a central part of you and I.

When  the day passes so quickly
and time no longer rules the night.
When I close my eyes to sleep
it is always in your arms.

This is the heavens affirmation
that we were always meant to be.
The truth reveals that our
love is a central part of you and I.

You Are My Love

It is uncanny how a thought, place or thing or absolutely nothing at all can take you back to a moment. How vivid are the memories that spark emotion as if a moment in time is put on replay. It was the appearance of the seventeen year cicada that reminded me what it was like to live without outside contact and the magic felt when I finally got a drivers license. There were so many first, the first time I drove into town and driving through a glazed sight of teary eyes. The first poem I penned and the first one I sold. It is incredible the passing of the years and the flood of emotions that have taken center stage more than once. The irony is as I look back I see situations, experiences and I understand it differently. I chalk it up to growth, am I really different? My sister once said " I am not any different than I ever was, I am just now free to be me."  On the contrary experience does change you. Maybe it is like being forced into a certain maturity. There is no doubt experience teaches you many a lesson. I feel a wide range of emotions. Part of me realizes the sponge that I am and how much I absorbed and another part would like to have avoided many a lesson.  Ignorance doesn't mean stupid, but absent of knowledge.
I always told my children there is no way we can change the world all we are capable of is our own actions and learning and experiencing and yes if necessary changing the way we think. It is okay to change as you age because that means the changing of opinion is related to experience and experience to growth. I still find myself in a few tear filled moments and in happy loved filled ones. I stop questioning the why of the journey. Obviously souls are placed in different places all over the world and it can be quite the challenge for them to reunite.
While tossing a few seeds into the garden, my mind took many a detour. I thought about how my world should have been and how it was for so many years. I found myself standing and shouting out in an abundance of silent screams. Like leaning on a willow tree to find the branches snap. When my daughter took me for a ride in her new car, there was a pride that she had done something that took me a lifetime to do. I am so proud of her, for I know the challenges that one has to overcome. Inside I feel like crystal that is shattering and pieces of me are everywhere.
Would my children know the sacrifice that I had given so there world would be stable? I retreated into another one of the gardens. That is what I had always done in the past. But this time the flowers and trees were also haunting me. It was as if everything was natures way of documenting a life. But it always leads me to you, for you are my happiness that brings the colors of the world around me to life. The sun is warm in an array of color and the sky free of clouds is quite the blue and when I gaze upon the heavens I know that we are ever so close. You are here in my heart and that brings a smile to my face. There is a sense of peace in knowing that you love and are loved. This gift is indeed priceless for the memories are the reminders that our love is truly an everlasting expression of the heart and soul. You had my heart from the beginning and well our souls joined as one.
Life would have been easier if there was a blue print or a guide of right and wrong and no blurry in decisions. It was something I heard today that surprised " why didn't I cut my losses?" In all reality I am just one piece in a puzzle and I had to look at the puzzle in its completeness. That is where I see you, as I can't imagine my life without you in it. There is a contentment knowing I can lean on you, share with you and yes love you and know that you can do the same back. Life isn't all peaches and cream but it doesn't have to be. When all is said and done it really is like the old adage" we are the company we keep." Therefore you indeed are the blue of the sky and every breath I take. Reaching out and takes your hand and pulls you close, kisses you and thanks the Lord for such a love.


In my heart,
there's a love
forever you
are the one.

Smiles I can't
hide, laughter
that can't be
denied.

In my heart,
there's a love,
forever you
are the one.

Brings joy
to my day,
where happiness
will stay.

In my heart,
there's a love,
forever you
are the one.

Close my eyes
feel your lips,
tender your
sweet kiss.

In my heart,
there's a love
forever you
are the one.

In my day,
a thought away,
only you and
you alone.

In my heart,
there's a love
forever you
are the one.

Changed my life
set a new a
journey where
I am side by side
with you.

In my heart,
there's a love
forever you
are the one.

Dedicate the Moment

No distance between us,
the miles just melt away,
the mountains to sand and
we dried up the stream.

Stroll within the garden
hand in hand with me,
capture the moment as
we drift off unto a dream.

The magic of souls and
the love within our hearts
creates a place of heaven
like dancing on the stars.

One to one together
joined for all eternity,
my greatest friend,
my love, you are my
everything.

~

Inhaling your sweet love,
exhaling the dark and gray,
my world is full of sunshine
when you found your way.

You unlocked my heart
and placed your love in me,
changed my life forever
making reality from dreams.


~

It's written in the heavens
and sent down from above,
joining our hearts together
and sealing it with love.

Take a glimpse of forever
with rainbows and dreams
to bridge the moment as
I dedicate the memories.

~

It is relatively easy
go ahead and try,
open up your heart
and close your eyes.

My kiss good morning,
starts each day anew,
in this peaceful existence
where skies are always blue.

Such a sweet diversion,
takes me by surprise
places me in your arms
through the power of
the mind.

It is relatively easy
go ahead and try,
open up your heart
and close your eyes.


~

Weird is defined as destiny... than you can be my weirdness and I'll be your krazy.


~

Souls embrace,
hearts set free
as you wipe my
tears and replace
them with dreams.

Feel the magic
a mystery of sort,
that travels via
the heart.

Souls embrace,
hearts set free
as you wipe my
tears and replace
them with dreams.

Many song writers have written songs with the phrase " a time to live and a time to die" but the bible is the oldest written book that speaks about " a time to live and a time to die. We take life and death so personal as if it is only going to happen to us but never the less each of us reaches that mile marker in time. The stories are ever so overwhelming and the emotions people feel span many variables. Life is so precious that I think we should spend more time on living than worrying about when we are going to check out.
Circumstance is quite like a spider which builds a web and entraps its subject. We spend a lifetime trying to free ourselves from the web of circumstance.  Whether real or imaginary barriers, we have to overcome the obstacles that make life seem difficult. I looked at my life and wondered how much was fate or circumstance and than again how much was left to choice. I found life pretty much like driving up a hill on a blind bend. It wasn't so much the unknown that ruled the moment but the ability to actually anticipate what lay beyond the blind bend.
I see the network of life like fine optic threads as we expand with the people that cross our path. Some threads weakened with time break off and others strong hold on in a supportive fashion, all becoming part of our unique story of life.
Thus it brings us to the chapter of determination and struggle, which somehow goes hand in hand. The more we struggle to anticipate what lay in the realm of the unknown, the more determined we are to write the chapter as we deem of importance.
It is not the usual obstacles like that of fear and heartache which caused many detours but indeed a few bricks of circumstance remain to be challenged. Holding your hand and walking forward.


With you I am
a mountain that
embraces the sky
of blue.

Like the sun that
warms the flesh
your love warms
my heart through.

As the breath of air
tickles the leaves upon
the tree, your gentle
and kind way brings
joy to me.

I have breached the
gates of heaven to
explore all that we
can truly be.

With you I am
the ocean and
as powerful as can
be as we wash upon
the sands our lasting
memories.

Good Morning Love

When the rain falls
or the sunshines,
in gray skies or blue
all of my thoughts
turn to you.

The blanket of peace,
the feel of your love
gently warms my heart
like rays from the sun.

The Masterpiece

Chosen images,
written to test,
while laying your
head upon my chest.

Creative design,
page by page
redirects in an
auspicious way.

Challenged moments
a journey a day
where soul by soul
we find our way.


The truth has a way of redefining the moment,
in my heart, side by side in a soulful embrace. 

To love is life's most beautiful experience,
love in return is a gift more precious than
words could define.


Life is like the petals of a rose,
as each flower opens in fullness
it reveals a view more beautiful
than one can imagine.


Without you there is a void where only darkness dwells,
with you a completeness that
only love can fill.

~

No tear is meaningless,
as each packed with emotion,
like a page in the wind. 


~














Gift

Close your eyes
open your heart,
you've been in 
mine from the start.

Hold on tight,
don't let go
this is the way
a true love grows.

My gift to you,
is for you to know
that our love 
from the heavens 
flow.

Emotion filled
the words tell,
the story of a love
sick spell.

You are mine
and I am yours,
that is the script
of forevermore.

Nothing can change
or take away the
love that is stronger
with each passing day.

Happiness is what 
we have to share,
it reveals how 
much you care.

~





Feel the moment
and touch my soul,
hold me tight as
I'm no fool. 

I recognized 
from early on,
that you were 
my first love song.

Can't keep a beat,
melody is all wrong,
but I know where 
I belong.

In your heart as
you are mine, 
everyday is 
mighty fine.

Loving you,
is all I need
ever after is
my belief.
Feel the moment
and touch my soul,
hold me tight as 
I am no fool.
