Multiply the Smiles and Laughter

Love Birds sing,
sing a little louder.

Sun shines bright,
each ray a little
stronger.Everyday
since I met you!

Love birds sing,
sing a little louder.
Sun shines bright,
each ray a little
stronger. Everyday
since I met you!



It's a beautiful day and so we have to grab that sunshine
when we can and store it away for those winters days.

Singing> Let's take a walk down by the stream, where
once stood a old cabin, now stands memories.

The sun glistens brightly, as it weaves through the
trees, lighting a path to a new dream.

Crystal clear waters in harmony, sing with the
rustling wind blown autumn leaves.

Step by step follow, just follow me, to our
meeting place down by the stream.

~~

. Love

I can't hide nor will I try what's now apart of me.
Won't wipe the smile from my face, nor rid my heart of glee.

I climbed the mountain high, I saw it in my dreams, the
closer to the heavens, the closer you are to me.

Take the smiles and laughter and multiply to see, the
Love is ever after, the best of you and me.

Take the smiles and laughter and multiply to see, the
love is ever after, the best of you and me.
~~~


Picket fence dreams, dinner at five with
a little candle light and a glass of wine.

Promises fade and there I stood
alone, waiting till the early morn
for the sound of the phone.

No expectations, no regrets,
and the memories that
haunt I cannot forget.

Now I stand, stronger then
ever before and I challenge
today and the tomorrows
yet born.

I’ll find my way, I’ll make
each moment count, as the
bells of glory ring overhead.

No letting go, no giving in,
no pain for with every ending,
a new story begins.

~~~

Keep

Keep laughing, keep smiling, I'm loving you.
Keep singing , keep dancing, all night through.

Keep holding, keep warming, it's overdue.
Keep believing , keep dreaming, it will come
true.

When the hills begin to darken , when the sun
is going down, remember the words my darling,
as they make my world go round.

Keep laughing, keep smiling, I'm loving you.
Keep singing , keep dancing , all night through.

Keep holding , keep warming , it's overdue.
Keep believing, keep dreaming, it will
come true.

When the hills begin to darken, when the
sun is going down, remember the words
my darling, as they make my world go
round.

Keep.... because I'll keep loving you!!!

Falling Rainbow



The Lock

Pick at the lock in such a warm way,
opening my heart a little more each day.


A combination played out perfectly,
released the soul where it once
sat to decay.


Hold my hand and prepare for
flight, released from the hollow
each morning and night.

Higher then the woodland trees, is
the smile on your face that sets me free.


The more we share, the further we
go, over the mountains our love
flows.


I can feel the warmth of your breath,
the beat of your heart on this life long test.


Lights the darkness and there I see,
how much you mean to me.

Shadows disappear, all that is necessary
is right here.

Pick at the lock in such a warm way,
opening my heart a little more each
day.






I never considered myself a materialistic person and I always felt that no one could see life quite the same way that I did. I found myself kind of waffling somewhere in the middle, I didn’t lean to one side of life or another. Somehow I was one of those people who hadn’t forgot what it was like to see through the eyes of a child. To this very day I have to catch myself as I love to capture a minnow with my hands just to see it up close and release it as I watch it swim free.

The rains heavily falling placed me in a calm, almost harmonious with the darkness of the storm. My mind drifted as it has many of times to experiences of both past and present. I thought of the people I have met and the hellish stories that they took the time to share with me. I saw a similarity between people, those who saw the beauty in life and those who were overwhelmed by the hell that existed in their own minds. Health followed by finances were the number one fears that people were challenged by.

I looked around at my surroundings, meager at best and yet I knew replacing it with a palace would do little to chase the demons that lived within. What is the challenge and why do I feel such a struggle? Does everyone feel or need the same attentiveness, or was my cravings for comfort and romance bordering a
obsession? My days reflected like that of a light switch off and on. In the spotlight one day and chained to the hollow the next. Where was the happy medium? I was grateful for all that I was graced with as I thanked the Lord for the rain falling down and the memories it encouraged, each drop a kiss that warms my heart. The colorful leaves spread heavily upon the grass, reminding me that we have made another season. The tears swelling up from within were not of sadness, but emotion filled with the review of our achievements.

My mind scattered like a puzzle tossed in the air and landing sporadically through the days, weeks and months that we traveled. This stroll by heart, mind and soul, found me exploring many places. For once in my life someone stood beside me, again a tear fell,I wiped it gently as it rolled down my cheek. It was ok to laugh, to smile to simultaneously be all ages. As if we had spanned beyond the earthly dimensions, where age and time had no reference upon our days.

I thought about the untimely ending of lives and that is when the most beautiful of thoughts consumed my evening dreams. I had loved and had loved returned to me, I had shared in a moment where even the miles could not hold back your arms. I had experienced what ignites hearts and sets free the spirit. No longer having to block out the negativity which occasionally surfaces. For nothingcan and shall replace the serge of one soul to another.


If thou shall find the moment that thou need turn away,
little would it matter your in my heart to stay.


I was once referred to as being a prolific writer. Finding the perfect combination of words to represent a experience of emotion is as endless as time. Whether out of gratitude, acknowledgement of a specific moment in time or a recognition of ones accomplishments. Finding the magical set of words to honor is as fulfilling as any life long tribute would or could be.

When You Dared

When you dared that first day to listen
and better yet to challenge, I felt love.

When you met with distance
and rivaled its existence to
hold my hand, I felt love.

When you vowed to be here
to the ends of time, I felt love.

When you held me for first time
on the cloud of happiness,
I felt love.


When you ...........

It is one of those days, raining , snowing and sun is glowing.

Singing>A little Bit


A little bit of rain,
a little bit of snow,
a little bit of sunshine
is how the story goes.


A little bit laughter,
a little bit of heartache,
a little bit mixed up,
is how we sing this song.


A little bit of love,
a little bit of joy,
a little bit of memories,
to my heart toys.


A little bit of magic
a little bit of prayer
a little bit of dreaming,
brought you here.

~~~

Here is what I know,

you understand,

you care and

you love me!

Love you back!

Singing>

Everyday I walk with you, holding hands like lovers do.
The start to our day, making everything okay.

Everyday I walk with you, holding hands like lovers do.
A gift from the heart where even distance cannot part.

Everyday I walk with you, holding hands like lovers do.
I might be daydreaming it's true, but I know that I am with you.

Everyday I walk with you, holding hands like lovers do.
A visual that glues with my love me to you .

Everyday I .......





Everyone has heard the expression, One step forward and two steps back.

My Life

One step forward and two steps back, in a game of chutes and ladders and I
felt that smack. Wake upon the river to find, you were there and not only in
my mind. Keep your head above the water high, like a turtle you were by
side. One step forward and two steps back, this is a little different as we're
both on track.




Counting Dreams


If we were counting dreams, it be how many times my arms you laid.
If we counting places that only lovers go, there would be millions for
every star in the sky that glows, for where you are my baby that’s where
my heart goes.


If you want to count my travels atop the mountains high, I am there each
day to meet you if only in my mind.
If you want to know how many times I think of you my dear, just count
the seconds in the day and multiply by the times we shared.

If we were counting., there would be only one, living, loving everday with you!

~~~

An emptiness inside, I felt like dying.
Lonely I cried, no longer lying,
I was longing to have you by my side.

~~

When I was a small child, I was in the hospital and my mother brushed the strands of hair from my forhead and whispered everyone is going to be alright. How many times through my adult life, I wanted to feel comfort and the words everything is going to be alright.


~~
Scary is the thought of existence, without you.

Heart

If you view with your heart, everything is clearer!
~
Literally! Laughed, cried, wiped away the tears and took your hand.
~

Everyday is a challenge, a struggle and a reward.
Singing >
Just come a little closer, let me whisper in your ear,
softly singing a song meant only for you to hear.
~
Just come a little closer, a little closer dear, let
me put my arms around you and watch our love grow
from here.
~
Ice melting on the sun and your touch to my heart.
Infused with your love, ignites a explosion in the soul.
~
I could walk away but I'd never be the same,
fused to me, is not mere memories.

~
Like shrapnel in the wind, pieces of you now
blend as you have formed deep inside of me.
~
Ice melting on the sun and your touch to my heart.
Infused with your love, ignites a explosion in the soul.
~
Just come a little closer, let me whisper in your ear,
softly sing ing a song meant only for you to hear.
~
Just come a little closer, a little closer dear, let me put
my arms around you and watch our love grow from here.
~~~~
All of life is a masterpiece and any artistic
reproduction of lifes beauty is a treasure.
Is It?
Is it happiness for what I have felt or
are you the arms of my safety belt?
~
Should I have sadness for what I can't
hold or be ever grateful I touched a
treasure of gold?
~
Your love inside me, infused from the
start, warm and tender I gave you my
heart.
~
I heard the wind blow through the top
of the trees, it whispered of memories
of you and me.
~
I thought to cry instead I laughed,
as we built of clouds, a lovers raft.
~
Drifting gently as the clouds go by,
on hugs and kisses, a lifetime supply.
~
Is it happiness for what I have felt or
are you the arms of my safety belt?
~~~~
My Love...
Shuffling through the words to find,
the ones in my mind,
my love ,
my heart
and soul.
I chose a few to embrace you,
and in your heart imbue.
my love,
my heart
and soul.

Not your every day breeze




Singing> Gazing up through the trees, the moment sang to me,
is it a dream or are you there with me?

Gazing at the skies of blue, I know that I felt you,
touch my heart as you danced with my soul.

Gazing high above the hills, I felt a chill, as the breeze
brought you to me.

One look and you'll see that you are here with me, in
my heart and you hold that key.

Gazing..... beyond the hollow to the place where love
flies free.






A moment

A moment of togetherness , woven like silk thread,
delicate yet strong span colors from blue to red.


Knotted beautifully, so remarkably tight, the wear
and tear of life could not unravel what was created
with such delight.

Alternating sunshine with days a little grey, opens
the door to memories interlacing our life with hope
and faith.

Tossed gently over the body to rid the cold, a
blanket of love warms my very soul.

~~

Weary

I know your a bit weary, I know you must sleep,
crawl in my arms, no tears shall we weep.

No clouds, no dreams, no magic or dance star to
star, the master of love entwined us from afar.

Here I await to tend to your brow, gentle a kiss
I place with a smile.

Massaging away signs of distress, rest my darling
we passed the days test.

We have journeyed further then anyone could and
we held tighter the anyone would.


So sleep my darling tonight I'll keep watch, as I hold
your heart near and your soul shall I rock.

Softened but not forgotten

I had wondered many a times how long it would take to heal a broken heart.
A emotion that touches so many lives, this passage in time varies amongst people.
Memories of the mind weigh heavily on the the inner spirit. Thus it has been said
that time is the great healer. As the years move the heart softens the pain, but
memories like salt to a wound never truly allows a complete mend of spirit.
~
There can never be pain where honesty flourishes, for in the truth thrives
the respect and love that can only bring joy.



So much to do and I am so tired, and yet I feel a little bit wired.
Tonight I say the hell with it all, the darkness of the night has called.
In your arms tonight I sleep, no place for sadness or tears to weep.
I am calling, calling in the night, don't move a inch, I'm by your side.
Sleep well my love, please don't fret, the clouds of the sky make
a wonderful bed. Kisses gently you to sleep and hold the memories
of the evening dreams.

Good Night!!!!






He walked away , he left me fall and a broken heart is what I recall.
He turned away, he couldn’t see what was ignited inside of me.

Sadness, sadness , tear and tears, for way to many, many years,
Blinded by the days of glee they simply mesmerized me.

Future dreams, hopes, desires and the memories that
still transpire.

Hold me, hold me, don’t let me fall ,the words must be of
a deafened call. For here I am all alone and in the dark my
heart still moans.
~~
I must say that in all my sadness, the Lord heard my prayer
because he sent me some one dear, honest , truthful , kind and
sweet. He sent me a friend , a friend I repeat.
Heals the heart, heals the mind and heals spirits deep inside.
I don’t know what I would do without you and I don’t ever
want to find out.
So distant yet so close, amazing what one thought can bring,
happiness, memories in one brief moment a flood
of emotion filled my heart overflowing into my soul.

Tonight... I feel your love,
I see your love,
I taste your love,
it is part of... my existence,
my heart,
my soul,
my life.


Singing>
When rivers all run dry and blue birds no longer fly,
I’ll still be by your side, my heart as the guide.

When stars no longer shine and darkness is all you’ll fine,
and you feel the need to cry, my shoulder you will find.

When days take us far and life seems bizarre,
just reach inside to see that there is always
you and me.

When rivers all run dry and blue birds no longer fly,
I’ll still be by your side , my heart at the guide.

When rivers all run dry.................

It's ok!

It’s ok if you hold me
~
With your eyes closed and your heart set to race,
allow your mind to feel my embrace.
The explosion of beauty starts from within, the
moment the gates opened and our souls walked on
in.
~
It’s ok if you hold me each and every night.
It’s ok if you hold me under the star lit sky.
~
With the song in your heart, let your soul sing,
while your love dances here with me.
The power of emotion brought you here, the
magic of your love keeps you near.

It’s ok if you hold me each and every night.
It’s ok if you hold me under the star lit sky.
~
On the clouds where you and I meet, under
the blankets and the silk sheets.
The collision meant from the start, that was
the moment that you took my heart.
~
It’s ok if you hold me each and every night.
It’s ok if you hold me under the star lit sky.
~
I am there when you feel alone and when
darkness settles it’s our heart that know.
The song that I hear fill the air, words
of love from you my dear.
~
It’s ok if you hold me each and every night.
It’s ok if you hold me under the star lit sky.
~~

My Mind

My mind has felt your touch many times,
my body hungers for that embrace.
Let your heart feel the freedom and your
soul feel the experience of the ultimate.
~~

Fade Not

Fade not the memories for they have been seared to my soul.
My heart has seen mountains disappear and time stand still.
Love has traveled great distances to feel your embrace, high
above the clouds, where we meet time and time again.

Fade not the memories for they have been seared to my soul.
In this walk called life, it is your hand that holds me close,
your heart that comforts and your love that sings.

Fade not the memorie for they have been seared to my soul.
Thou shall not part with that which has become a part of
my spirit. Resting in the heart, agitating the mind and
setting free the love that flows freely from wihtin.

Fade not the memories for they have been seared to my soul.

It is not what I have seen it's what I have felt!


I cannot see the many in one fallen leaf, for they have dried to crumble
and blow swiftly out to sea. In my weakest moments, cast in gold I saw,
like the evergreen growing, you were standing strong and tall. Braced
with your laughter, warmed by your heart, tickled by the fantasy, love

as a work of art.
~
I cannot see the many in one fallen leaf, for they have failed to hold
on to our hope and dreams. When footing felt a little slippery and

I thought that I might fall , your strength and and courage is
what reached out and kept me from a crawl.
~
I cannot see the many in one fallen leaf, for they have lost the
magic of the child that lives to breathe. I felt your hand as
we walked through the day, I felt the bond as we made
the darkness fade away.
~~~
When the walls began to tighten and I thought I couldn't breathe,
you were there to loosen the noose around me.

When the world seems filled with darkness and I cared little to see,
the child of ten ran through the park to enlighten me.

When I tried to pull the blanket tightly over me, I am honored to find
that you were next to me.

When the tears flood from behind the eyes, it's the dance upon the
clouds that tought my soul to fly.
~~~
Whispers gently I.......more!


The End or the beginning of a Season!

One by One
One by one the autumn leaves had fallen creating a heavy carpet of memory.
Each moment, hour and day reflected through our friendship, like the color
and shape of the varied trees , the love had taken root in our lives.
The rough edged leaf of the maple distinctively reminded
me of life, sometimes smooth with a
occassional rough jagged edge to
keep you alert.

Autumn Walk or a walk with Autumn?

Let's Go for A Walk!

With the leaves crackling beneath our feet and
the sun ‘s rays playing a game of trick or treat.
~
Feel the wind blow a kiss from my lips, flip
and whiz to your heart my love skips.
~
Strolling down the street under skies of blue,
with the harvest reflection as it cast a golden
hue.
~
Sounds of silent laughter escaped from my
eyes, as who could contain such joy
of a day with you and I.

Reflection of a heart on fire.


In The Spirit of the Wind

Awakened in the early morn, a blanket of calm
kept close your memory. Tranquil the moment,
I was at ease with the dreams that welcomed
me into a serene cradle of warmth.

Before this moment I believed we were living
in a world that opened the doorway to the
mind, to only find we had found a
place of existence in each
others heart.

As my hands explored the physical, gliding
gently over the pedestal of the bed, and my
body held close the soft fluff of pillow, I
felt detached for a few brief seconds, as
you and I spanned the distance to
embrace mind and body.

With acceptance of what is, silence
now sings and the emptiness once
felt, dissipated by the replacement
of the fulfillment engaged by
passion and desire.

No longer in a surreal cloud like
emotion, my feet now steady on
earths carpet. In a brazen
display of love we defied
the expected norm.

We live in the spirit of the wind, as it
seeks to find the passage through
all time. Soothed yet agitated
as I absorb all of your being
through the gateway of
my soul.
~~~
I like Green!
I grew up in some what of a musical family to a mother who loved opera
and my father who loved country. Though I must say I preferred
to hear my father welping country to my mothers high pitch notes
of opera.

Control takes on many forms, some that people are very unfamiliar
with or unaware of is a manipulative form of domestic dictatorship.
A bedding of the seed of doubt, which grows into a well grown stock
of insecurity.

All most all of my adult life, was met with one form of control or another
. I sometimes felt ugly and stupid and that my choices were inadequate
and that somehow I was childish in my desire to play particular styles
of music.

I had a love for music that span every style from classical to rock , oldies,
country, jazz and blues.Yet one lasso that had been tossed around me
was to not listen to country music, this was just one little step of
control, that would go unnoticed to those around me.

With maturity comes a certain amount of rebellion. I thought to
myself is it rebellion? Maybe its just standing up for oneself or
even more accepting what you find in yourself. I like country
music because it tells stories and is filled with emotion.... so
here goes...call it childish, call it a bit of soul searching or
call what it is self acceptance.

Singing with a Twang>When the River Runs Dry
How can I make you love me? How can I make you mine?
I’d get down on my knees and I’d beg the Lord to please,
make you feel my love in every breeze.

How can I make you love me? How can I make you mine?
I’d get down on my knees and I’d beg the Lord to please,
make you see, how much love for you is inside me.

When all the rivers run dry and the stars fall from the sky,
I’ll still be waiting, for you to love me.

When all the rivers run dry and the stars fall from the sky,
I’ll still be waiting , for you to love me.



Singing> A little bit of loving...

A little bit of loving, a itty bitty flame,
torched my heart and set my soul a blaze.

With you, there is nothing I can’t do,
I’d even walk across the ocean blue.

A little bit of loving, a itty bitty flame,
torched my heart and set my soul a blaze.

With you, I saw life in a different view,
dancing on the clouds, just me and you
.


Sunset Pink
Scattered light reflects from the soul,
upon your heart love unfolds.
Observe the colors of sunset pink,
tethered memories that make you
think.
~~


In the shadow of the darkness,
under the star lit sky, you can
trace the vision of love, if
only with the mind.

Entwined to a depth without
measure, a touch so tender
gently etched to my
heart a treasure.

To feel your love without the
bodyƂ’s embrace and dream
of the kiss that causes the
heart to race.

Two silhouette permanently
fixed in the night, cause a
hungerthatI cannot fight.
~~

Don't be afraid of the darkness of the night,
come a little closer allow your soul the sight.
Vision your body right next to mind, listen
to my heartbeat as it races the second hand
of time.

Accept the pleasures that love can bring,
pull a little closer and allow your heart to see.
Your body, my body , lips upon lips, your
spirit, my spirit begging for that kiss.

For this day I have walked with you upon
a path that only two souls of kindred spirits
could grasp.

Earth or the heavens or where ever life
make take us, eternal the love to the
soul caresses.

Don't be afraid of the darkness in the
night, lay upon the blankets allow
your heart to feel the warmth of
our love beyond the clouds
surreal.

The Feel


The feel of your hands right next to mine,
in the garden, doing dishes or like a ivy vine.
Entwined with memories, I felt your love,
twist and grow with the stars from above.

~
To hear a song a lovers choice,
the words of love given a voice.
A song that only two can share

and sends a chill to make you
aware.

~
Your body pressing so very close,
I felt it so near with my soul exposed.
A tender touch to the heart, warm

and expressive it makes me melt.
~

I love you more each day and night,
whisper the words to you would excite.
Take my hand and follow, and there you

will see, the beauty of love when you
walk with me.
~~

Good Night

A Good Night is the step into dreams where
magic unfolds and the love of my darling
is in my arms to hold.
Beds me gently through out the night
with good thoughts and memories
that hold me so tight.
Warms the heart and caresses the
soul and under the blankets a story
is told.
A kiss that taste salty and sweet,
lips joining and hearts meet.
Silly or serious and sometimes
delirious the power of love is never
precarious.
~

I don't try to stumble, nor to slip and fall,
I hold my head high and listen when the soul comes to call.

I don't try to fail, nor make mistakes that can't be fixed,
butoccasionallyy it's consequence that plays those
awful tricks.

I don't try to understand what isn't very nice, nor allow
the emotions to control my very life.

I don't ask to see what the future has to hold, but it
would be awful nice if I slipped, my hand you'd hold.

I don't know the reason the Lord deem the time to be
now, but the path was surely cleared and then I
wrote the vow.

I pledge to live each day as if it were the first,
to see life anew, as if it's giving birth.

To feel each moment and hold it
in my heart and laugh and giggle,
to give the child a start.

To take a breath and celebrate in
spirit that we have walked a path
that few would even hear of it.

To embrace the seasons as they
come and go, documenting the
story as in the wind it blows.

It's no secret that giving birth can be painful,

but the perfect little gift makes it all worth it.




To love, live, feel and hold close the beauty of life!

Ok! It's not all bad they did overnight the modem and
internet is back up and running, so this poem may be
bordering the melodramatic. lol


As if my breath had been taken away and my soul again chained
and the piercing through the heart sent my spirit up in flame.
Silence in the hollow, darkness through the trees, surrounding
me with emptiness , drowning in the black sea.

Sounds of sadness and sounds of despair reaching from the
depth to remember when you were here. Don't leave me
in the darkness , don't leave me drowning here. I'm reaching
for your hand, can't you feel me there?

~~
HE

He who broke the isolation, he who broke the chains,
filled the day with pure elation, to my heart entertained.

He who dare to look and see, to listen and to hear,
cast a spell such as magic, to bring you directly here.

He who holds me in the night and whispers in my ear,
and reminds me how important it is to have someone
that cares.

He who gave to me the smile, a cloak of sadness could
not hide, as it beams so very bright, it is seen right through
my eyes.

He who dared to open his heart, he who dared to feel,
he who dared to return the love, did it with such
flair.

~
On my cloud only love shall enter,
when the wind begins to blow
its to my heart the center.






















You and Me

Lean my head against the tree,
the sycamore and me hold the
secret of all of my dreams.

~
The moment our hearts
were joined and our souls
set free, are carved in this
tree.
~
The hollow filled with song
from the day that I longed,
to be in your arms.
~
Recorded of memory
is felt in every breeze,
the love of you and me.
~
Lean my head against the
tree, the sycamore and me,
hold the secrets of all of my
dreams.

River Rush

River Rush

If I could direct the rivers flow,
I’d guide it to the east and in
the water sprinkle love to
you, to be released.


Pivot, zigzag and twist over
mountains and through the
hollow , love like this is

sure to follow.

From the depth of the river,
direct to your heart a autumn
kiss, to sea lour love from

my very lips.

Meet with the waters rough

and exceedinly swift, toss my
head back and gently I drift.


No fear, no abyss, I’m floating
your way, full of love and full
of joy, the bliss won't fade away.
