Light Up The Cloud



Light up the cloud,
the dance floor is ours,
if only to hold you
for a little while.

Your heart to mine,
rhythmic they beat,
spinning in circles
to memories.

Light up the cloud,
the dance floor is ours,
if only to hold you
for a little while.

Stars above us,
in the night of calm,
where we dance as one
all night long.

Light up the cloud,
the dance floor is ours,
if only to hold you
for  a little while.

Your lips of sweet,
pressed gently to mine,
sharing a moment
please stand still time.

Light up the cloud,
the dance floor is ours,
if only to hold you
for a little while.

Common Words for an Uncommon Love

I grew up in the over the rainbow era. Where you somehow think that like the song, " somewhere over the rainbow, way up high , there is dream." But of course that same movie reminds you that everything you need is right there around you. We have the ability to make our own happiness, create our own reality , live our own dreams. While driving down the road this morning, the sky was indeed a beautiful blue and the sun warm and bright and on a scale of one to ten, it was a twelve.
Love is a power house of emotion and positive experience that guides us through our life. I couldn't help but be thankful for all the opportunities I was granted. I noticed in the garden this week how quick the beautiful roses faded. It gives you a mix of emotions, it might be the one last hurrah for summers blooms and yet it brings with us a reminder of the end of a season and the start of a new one.

Many colors,
varied hues,
a bloom a day
life a new.

Season in passing,
hello and goodbye,
sprinkle with sorrow
and filled with delight.

Love is all around,
it touches the heart
and brings the heavens
down.

Dance sweet love,
dance with me,
I am here waiting
in my nightly dream.

~

There are chapters on sorrow,
where sadness makes a play
and though I wish them a way
a bit of heartache remains.

But on a good note this
much I can say,
that love brought a joy
that never fades away.

I try to forget the darkness
not to give it a thought,
to replace it with happiness
that to my heart was taught.

Tears that fall slowly down the cheek and
smiles that remind me it wasn't all a dream.
Whispers of the heart that speak of love,
souls soaring up above.

~
I'll try to explain,
I'll tell you how I feel,
the words of love not spoken
can be heard like elephants
stampeding through a field.

Tears like storms in passing,
flood like a river from its bank,
flow through the heart and
skip from star to star.
~

I thought I was missing you
and that I was here all alone,
as the songs of love were haunting
like a nightmare where you let me go.

I faced the mountains,
I spoke to the wind,
whispered of our love
and the parting of souls a sin.
~
 
My heart keeps singing and I keep dreaming
of the love found in each of my smiles.
 
~
 
Between you and I a sunrise,
no matter where we go.
Your heart with mine is a
love that grows and grows.
 
No words between us,
only love to prevail,
of the meeting of souls
and unwritten tale.
 
 
 
 
 


Since I first met you...


Sings>I saw the sky bluer
and the sun brighter,
the night couldn't be finer,
since I first met you.

My heart beat so much faster,
there was tons of laughter,
we were writing our ever after,
while making dreams come true.

Whispers... I saw the sky bluer
and the sun brighter,
the night couldn't be finer,
since I first met you.

My heart beat so much faster,
there was tons of laughter,
we were writing our ever after,
while making dreams come true.

Words written for you...

From my lips a kiss,
to your heart my love,
from the moment we met
I danced on clouds above.

From my soul a dream,
to your life a memory
charted in the stars
where angels sing.

~

I go on believing,
wanting it to be so,
remembering the love
I'll never let go.

It taught my heart to sing,
my soul to dance and
gave the words of love
a tale of romance.

The Gift of Love

Do I believe because it is real
or is it real because I believe?
 
I went into town shopping and bumped into a few people I knew and those that I had just met for the first time. Strangely enough, it was an unusual network as everyone seem to be connected in one way or another. They say there is a part of our brain that releases good and bad endorphins, depending on the people around us. The good and positive releases chemicals that create positive energy and keep a person happy and healthy and the opposite is true, when we place ourselves within negative company. Happiness is not based on whether we struggle or not, nor is it something that can be purchased. Happiness is actually a thought process. When we share happiness we create an aurora of positive energy that connects one person to another.
I have been known to over analyze. The reason being that there are so many ways to interpret and experience and each day one experience can provide us with different lessons. That might sound a bit off the wall but in reality there are not two sides to a story but many sides, with various doors and windows that brings about different views.
When I was very young, I would say around seven years old. I remember questioning, the statement " God is and always will be, without beginning nor end. That just didn't make any sense to me at the time and I wanted answers. All children want answer and sometimes adults just don't have the answers. It was a clear night and the stars were so bright. The mass was overwhelming and  at that moment knowing that earth is just a speck of sand in the heavens brought a closer look at reality. God must be the universe. The universe is and always will be, without beginning or end. God is everything and everywhere, light, matter and space. I thought of how man once thought earth was flat and finally realized it was round. We look at the universe and we think of only what we can see, when there is so much more beyond all that is.
There are times that my heart and mind battle for what is right. I tried to come to terms that I might never agree with my own thoughts and that questioning the what is factor is a part of my personality.
 
I will not search for happiness,
for happiness comes from inside
and whether we choose to share it,
is up to each of us to decide
 
Windows to peer out,
doors that remain locked
and the heavens above us
that keep time without a clock.
 
I challenge thoughts with action,
where to go and what to do and
take with the moment that pulled
love out of the blue.
~
 
If I had never chanced to love,
felt the joy that it can bring
nor savored the memories of sweet
that taught my heart to sing.
 
I would have remained in darkness,
stagnant and unawake,
troubled and all alone
and victim of fate.
 
The gift of love before me,
my heart recognize it so
and I felt it take a hold
and set my soul a glow.

Love's Rhyme

I never went looking
nor did I expect to find,
a love so wonderful
it's engrained heart,
soul and mind.

Triggered emotions
that play their part,
creating experiences
that take us to the
stars.

I can't explain it,
no matter how I try,
love that can't be defined,
the pleasure that exceeds
all rhyme.

I never went looking
nor did I expect to find
a love so wonderful
it's engrained heart,
soul and mind.

" In Love "

I was seventeen years old when I first heard " I love you Rachel, but I am not in love with you." I had no idea what that meant. I thought love is love, you either love someone or you don't. It was much later in life that I come to understand the variations of love. Caring and compassion are a form of love. We share that love with those around us, both friends and family. But in love is really quite magical.  Physical, emotional, spiritual, when we meet on that same plateau of life we are at the gateway of  being "in love."


When hearts come together
and souls bow one to one,
the experience of happiness
is in the truth of real love.

There is no concealing,
you can see it in the eyes
the magic of " in love"
flows out from inside.

Precious moments,
that forever remain,
like the stars in the heavens,
brightens with a smile a day.

It is skipping on the clouds,
dancing in your dreams,
the power of being in love
is in the joy it brings.




Inside Out

Inside out,
you will see,
your love is
a part of me

Wide awake
or in a dream,
I carry you
daily.

In my heart,
you'll remain,
entwined forever
and a day.

~

I don't wanna wake up,
I don't wanna get out of bed,
if waking up stops the dreams
and brings this magic to an end.

~

Decisions made by the heart
and carried out by the soul,
reveal the truth of character.
