The Kitchen Dance

The mind has a way of overcoming the negative and all obstacles by remembering the positive and finding strength in their messages. My parents had a volatile relationship and yet I fondly look back and remember my parents dancing in the kitchen. Music has always been an integral part of my being or shall I say sounds in general. From my earliest memories my father would put his pocket watch under my pillow so I would fall asleep to the tic tock as if it were a lullaby and then to the sounds of the train passing by. That was sometimes replaced by the old transistor radio underneath my pillow.
I don't often have difficult days but today I feel just a bit melancholy. Flooded with memories and losses and my daily grunge I am a tad bit overwhelmed. With all I had to do, I instead went outside seeking solitude in my gardening. The gardening gives the quickest reward for the amount of work involved. It was one of those moments , I could hear the song that my parents use to play and dance to " dearest I love you and I shall always love you, I still belong to you."
Summer is quickly passing and I don't look forward to the fall season. The dark comes early and stays late and the sun deceiving as the trees will soon begin the changing of colors. I am a bit over emotional for that under my control,  I find completely opposite nothing is under my control.  The tears that were hidden behind my eyes for sometime slowly  rolled down my cheek.

The deep fog lifted
as the sun broke through
and at that very moment
I found myself thinking of you.

I thought about your arms
holding me gentle yet tight
and the kisses we would have
if you were with me tonight.

Michael Buble - That's All (lyrics on screen)

Upon the clouds,

waiting on your hand

to dance the night away.

Blah, blah , blah

When I reach for a memory wonderful and kind,
it is you my love that comes to mind. 


I wake with you in my heart
and carry you through the day,
till the stars take to the sky,
I fall to dreams of you and I. 

Surreal the visuals and
the magic that transpires,
as I feel your love 
set my soul on fire. 

Sweet fragrance fills the air,
Gardenia blooms everywhere.
Summer weather now in gear
a few more weaks for us
to share.

It is not that I look to see
the visuals with my mind,
the images secured within
my heart closely entwined.

Opening The Curtains

My heart whispers of love
first thing each morn 
and the more I think of you
the more of you I adore.

You are with me in my travels,
that I may never let you go, 
as I tucked you in my heart
and in my heart you grow.

It is not what I believe 
that makes so much sense to me, 
it's the beating of my heart
that whispers like a dream.

Words are but a catalyst 
between the hearts of two, 
recording the energy 
of how I feel for you.

Till the sun no longer shines
and the rain no longer falls, 
till dreams no longer work 
and you are in my arms. 

Till the clock no longer ticks, 
and the earth no longer spins, 
till time no longer rules
and you are in  my arms. 

I'll be here beside you
both day and night, 
the touch of sweet love 
is magic we can't fight.

Till the sun no longer shines
and the rain no longer falls,
till dreams no longer work 
and you are in my arms. 

Till the clock no longer ticks
and the earth no longer spins
till time no longer rules
and you are in my arms.

I'll be waiting for you
and that's a guarantee
for you are the love 
that rules my memories. 

These words are but a fraction of the recording of time, 
that a love grew in my heart, soul and mind. 

Early morning,
rain falling down
caught in the moment
swept up in your smile.

I can't ever imagine
anyone could understand
a love so incredible
it be must heavens plan.

I thought I walked in darkness,
to bring you close to me,
but when I closed my eyes
that is when I could really see.

So tender our embrace,
in a magical kind of way,
reaching for my pillow
made all the miles fade.

The carp rise to the top
and a turtle is sunning on a log
a hot summer day to share
perfect if you were here.

Birds going about their day,
finding seed and gathering hay,
preparing to nest once more
as the weather has more sun
in store.

There is so much to do
 I just daydream here of you,
a smile upon your face and
a warm touch of your embrace.

The trees barely give shade
it is hot and hotter by the day,
sometimes I am feeling my age
until I look back and engage.

Blocking the trials of life
only allowing what feels right,
visions to compliment the day
you and I and a glass of lemonade.

Just A Whisper In The Wind

Just a whisper in the wind,
direct to you and you alone,
may you feel the way I do
like a diamond and not a

My hearts gift for you
it's here to get us through,
days filled with clouds of gray
to the skies brilliant blue.

As long as we shall live,
my love to you is what I give,
from early morn when you awake
till the stars a blanket make.

Strenghten this union of love
as we dance in clouds above,
Precious moments on rewind
feel new each and every time.

Just a whisper in the wind,
direct to you and you alone,
may you feel the way I do,
like a diamond and not
a rhinestone.

Forevers Embrace

Deep in my heart
two entwined souls
captures the love
that never grows old.

Clear as the moment
you first said hello
and I took to the
clouds and have
yet to let go.

This is love
forevers embrace,
as I close my eyes
and my heart loses
its pace.

Feeling you close
as two can be,
in your arms I'll
always be.

Deep in my heart
two entwined souls,
captures the love
that never grows old.
