Shall We Dance?

More than the greatest love the world has known, this is the love I give to you alone.


I hold the memory, embrace our love,
feel the happiness,when two souls
became one.


~
Cooler nights
and darker days,
rocky roads and
sunlight fades.

Until I reach out
and find you waiting there,
take my hand , hold my heart
for life was meant to be shared.

Warmth to the night,
a brightness to the day,
clears the path and
brings sunshine our way.

Single Silhouette

Love is to the heart as laughter is to the soul,
both are energy that is equally amazing.
 
~
There is an incredible spell of loneliness,
until I gaze unto the heavens and realize
that you are the smile in the stars.
 
There are always more questions than answers.
~
 
Sit here for a moment,
let the silence speak,
words of the heart,
cast deep in memory.
 
Stroll under the heavens,
the moon full and bright,
guides us on our way,
leads us with its light.
 
Tears that have fallen,
tales of yesterday,
on a troubled journey
parting hears along the way.
 
~
My eyes are closed
and there I wait to see,
like stars in the night,
your love in my dreams.
 
Two hearts together,
entwined as one,
a single silhouette
cast as love.
 
 
 
 
 

The Dance With Autumn

The smells and sounds of the season seem to announce the changing of Summer to Autumn as if by clock work. Flowers that once lit the gardens now hang petal less as they dry with seed. The stream barely moving, while water slowly trickles over the rock encourage the frogs, fish and turtles to move on to deeper water. There are a few trees that seem to be yellowing sooner than the others and still yet some that already stand bare. The song birds no longer courting as they prepare to migrate south and even my monarch are soon getting ready to reveal their beautiful orange and black wings and head towards Gulf of Mexico.
I find myself a bit restless as I think that Autumn can be an extension of summer or an early invitation to winter. Like a squirrel that stores nuts for winter, I found myself freezing and canning pickles, tomatoes, beets and corn for winter. Putting away summer clothes and bringing out darker warmer clothing, as well as plugging in my electric blanket for the cooler nights that have quickly ascended upon us.
We each have a bit of Autumn in us. It is the passing of time and yet a celebration of life. Like the leaves on the trees that announce "Yes , the season has changed look at me in all my beauty, strong, joyous and filled with color. " It is a time where we gather our strength to stand tall against all that life will bring.
Taking a deep breath and slowly exhaling I try to find the meaning of this cycle of life. Constantly changing yet staying the same. Approaching another chapter in the endless book of life.

Shades of every color and hue,
clouds passing and skies blue,
the wind whispers in song,
your arms are where I belong.

Another season comes and goes,
and through it all I want you to know,
my love for you is ever strong,
you have been in my heart all along.

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.
