On The Shore By the Sea...

You're my morning sunshine
and my stars in the night,
the love that keeps me warm
on the coldest of nights.

You're the blue in the sky,
brighter and bolder with time
and in my dreams you are
always in these arms of mine.

You're my morning sunshine
and my stars in the night,
the love that keeps me warm
on the coldest of nights.

I don't wanna wake up
to find you are not here,
so I walk through life
in a dream like stare.

I don't wanna let go
of the love that brought me here,
so I keep on dreaming
that it's my bed you share.


Feel my fingers through your hair
and know there is so much more
as you gaze unto the night sky 
there is a lot of loving in store.
My arms might seem empty
for this moment in time,
but as I close my eyes
I know you'll be in these
arms of mine.
Feel my heart to yours.
a glimpse of forevermore
as each beat in unison
is music to my ears.
There is a dream I have yet to share,
of ocean waves and summer air,
through the chapters of life
that nothing can compare.
Good Night Sweet Love Good Night
Good night, sweet love, good night,
the stars above are shining bright.
Good night, sweet love, good night,
my lips to yours a delight,
Good night, sweet love, good night
the dreams make everything right.
Good night, sweet love, good night,
my heart is yours each and every night.

At the gateway of the heart
to a view of the soul.

On the shore by the sea,
in the clouds via my dreams,
from your heart to mine
we are rewriting eternity.

From my soul a glimpse,
from the heavens to your lips,
sweet love as it should be,
burnished to our memory.

In the light of the moon,
when the sky is no longer blue,
look to the stars and
see the reflection of our hearts.

On the shore by the sea,
in the clouds via my dreams,
from your heart to mine
we are rewriting eternity.

Close Your Eyes and I'll Kiss You

When you think of all the great poets and song writers, you wonder how many combinations are left unwritten. It is not so much a challenge but the writing of ones heart. The Beatles wrote a lot of songs, many of them romantic, uplifting such as "close your eyes and I'll kiss you, tomorrow I'll miss you, " So here goes once more , love through the view of my heart.

One with the trees,
a rainbow beneath my feet
while Autumn is shining as
the wind swirls around the leaves.

No distance between us,
you are next to me,
I felt you take my hand
and lift me from my knee.

Days into years
and the years eternity,
as I gaze into my own heart
to see the power of a dream.

Two souls entwined into one,
a vision of happiness and a story of love.
From the moment I wake up till I fall asleep,
it is you who holds me so tenderly.

Let the truth be known,
there is only you and I.
We are the love that
will last for all time.

Close your eyes and I am there,
it is our love we have to share.
From season to season
from spring through the winter snow.

Rivers through the mountains,
and the road through the trees,
somehow they always lead
you to me and me to you.

Tears hold the memories,
the story of love and
as they role down my cheek,
they wash away the sun.

Weep for yesterday
and the tomorrows yet to come,
each tear an expression
of the power of love.

Through My Dreams

Take my hand,
my heart is already yours.

Battling the darkness,
it is difficult to let go,
for you are my sunshine
that sets my world a glow.

Memory filled tears
never dry nor fade away,
they remain as reminders
how love found its way.


From my heart the words of love,
for you alone are my special one.
The seasons will come and go
unlike my love that grows and

I promised to be true,
to love only you.
I'll never let anyone as
near as I let you.

From my heart the words of love
for you alone are that special one.
The seasons will come and go,
unlike my love that grows and

...under my blanket

Come a little  bit closer,
under my blanket if you will,
the stars are over head and
the night seems to stand still.

My heart racing,
the imagination gone wild,
as I lay my head upon the pillow
and with your memory I smile.

The music is playing
and each song is for you and I,
as someone wrote of love,
they must have had us on their mind.

Come a little bit closer,
under my blanket if you will,
I am holding on to you,
as I am under your spell.

There is no pretending,
my heart belongs to you,
it was given from the moment
the skies took on a precious blue.

Little Reminders

Little reminders that the dance floor is ours,
spinning around in circles with my feet off the floor.
Magical as any true love could ever be,
across the mountains it brings you to me.

The power of the night stars,
unlocked my shielded heart.
Touched my very soul
in a most amazing hold.

Little reminders that the dance floor is ours,
as I glide into your arms and celebrate forevermore.
Perfection at its best, leave the two step to the rest,
it is you and I that rose above this earthly mess.

Am I crazy?

I wake up in the morning
and I feel you are here
my pillow has your scent
as if the night we shared.

The darkness slowly fades
into the upcoming light
and music fills the moment,
in your arms it feel so right.

Am I crazy?

You are always on my mind,
whether I am busy or wasting time.
You are the smile that fills me with delight
and the tears that I constantly fight.

Early in the morn,
my heart feels an ache,
as I reach into the air
and my body begins to shake.

Am I crazy ?

That my words are all of you,
they are the mountains and the blue sky,
they are my dreams that wait
to come true.

Am I crazy?

Sings for you...

Behind the clouds the sky is blue,
within my heart a love true.


I woke up in song
to the music of my heart,
replacing the darkness
with your love from afar.

Dreams placed you in my arms
as I held you through the night
and felt your kiss sweet
jump start this foolish life.
My world anew,
my skies just so darn blue,
music that fills the air,
a story we have yet to share.

I woke up in song
to the music of my heart,
replacing the darkness
with your love from afar.

..together we are like a summer day.

Just as one cannot shield the heart,
neither can they masque the soul.
Destiny sets the path,
choice accepts it.
There is truth in the arms of love...
Mere thoughts upon a page...
I hear it in every love song,
see it in all the world around me.
That which manifest it self in the heart
reveals how the nurturing of spirit
is sowed deep and forever grows.
It was at the very moment that I experienced love
that I realized what I had been missing all of my life.
I am the wind and you are the sun...
I lived the moment that I loved.

Once Upon A Dream...

In my dreams,
in my arms
and forever
in my heart.

In my thoughts,
in my prayers
and forever
in my life.

Sunlight on the leaves
shades of gold and green,
shadows reflect a story
in the dance of my dreams.

Silence surrounds me
until my heart sings
and breaking the moment,
the words of love are free.

Soar to the heavens,
take your place next to me,
`on the passing clouds
where all is as it should be.

I can't see the heavens,
the sky is dark and grey
and yet I can see the love
that you sent my way.

You're my sunshine,
my stars that shine at night,
the magic that brings
my dreams to life.


There is a song,
that waits to be sung,
no controlling
this powerful thing
called love.

La de da da da ,
I sing for you,
la de da, da, da
you have made my
skies so blue.

There is a song
that waits to be sung,
no controlling
this powerful thing
called love.

Haunted by the memories,
like a cloud in my mind.
It lingers on as if it held
still the hands of time.


If dreams are real
my whispers you will hear,
words of love meant only
for your ears.

I'd cast them to the wind
and direct them to you,
so you may wake up
to the words of I love you.

If the angels are listening,
may they shower down on you,
the love in my heart
that I hold so true.
If you are listening,
my love I send to you,
I encouraged the blue bird
to return via the sky blue.

Give him my love,
my kisses through the day,
sing the sweet songs
in your song bird way.

If you are listening,
my love I send to you
I encouraged the blue bird
to return via the sky blue.

I felt the sand between my toes,
the gulls squawk as they eat
and while the waves rushed to shore,
I drifted off into a dream.

Your arms tightly around me,
our hearts beat as one and
at that very moment I felt
the magic of love.

It embraces each moment,
carries me through the dreams
and when I wake to face each day,
I know you are never far away.


I thought I viewed a puzzle
piece by piece complete ,
until I realized without you
the emptiness was in me.

I searched for the answers,
I questioned  what was meant to be.
Reviewing the memories,
all I have is found in my dreams.

Sings>Right, left or straight ahead,
up and down there seems to be no end.
Lost like a ship out at sea,
waiting on your love to direct me.

Right, left or straight ahead,
up and down there seems to be no end.
Wandering around in circles
till I wake from this dream.

Right, left or straight ahead,
up and down there seems to be no end.
Lost like a ship out at sea,
waiting on your love to rescue me.

This melancholy melody
can be heard through the day,
a song that parts hearts
as the moment fades away.
Combinations of letters from A to Z,
document a moment through my dreams.
Weeping hearts, lonely souls,
grasp for you hand to forever hold.

Rearranging in a common way,
to say I love you forever and a day.
Every passing second leads to the hour
as I write the words that set my soul a fire.


Listen with your heart
and you'll know to be true,
that heaven sings of love
from the moment I met you.

Listen to your soul
and you'll  understand
our love is awfully special
forever it commands.

Blue and Yellow Ribbons

Blue and yellow ribbons
tied together as one,
wrapped around the world
in this gift of love.

From my heart a story
of souls entwined,
on a journey of life
with you and I.

I take the moment
to document time,
and never to forget
when dreams made
you mine.

Only For You

dreams in the night,
the stars that shine are
yours and mine.
a treasure to share,
when you cast a spell
and I knew that your cared.

Let me speak to you,
in the way that lovers do,
from my lips a kiss
meant only for you.

Like a summer sun
on a day that has just begun,
allow my love to warm
you through and through.

When the night sky
sparkles with stars up high,
remember that I am there
waiting for you.

Feel the sweetness of desire
each and every moment of an hour,
as the passion for your touch
moves through my soul.

Let me speak to you,
in the way that lovers do,
from my lips a kiss
meant only for you.

If every time you crossed my mind and your name fell from my lips, no measurements would be available as it is as endless as the heavens star light kiss. For you have filled my heart with happiness and desire and I felt it warm my very soul, getting hotter by the hour. I take this time to think of you as I prepare to close my eyes and take my place within your arms via the mind. No distance between us, nor darkness or despair, for every breath we take is heart soul shared.
My heart is filled with happiness as I celebrate the day, that you entered my heart and I was never quite the same. Tucked underneath the blankets, my pillow and I, takes the time to be thankful for the moment when you caught me by surprise.
One with the heavens,
no distance or fear,
for you are as close
as the memories shared.
Here in my heart,
deep in my soul,
the embrace of love
daily unfolds.

To reveal an inner self and find acceptance is love.
If you look close into the soul of your lover,
you will find your own reflection.
The unity of souls ignites a flame
which implodes within the heart.
I love you because I saw my reflection...
I pleaded to the Lord, "Lord guide me!"
and I found you at the crossroads of my life.
When you close my eyes, rest assure,
it will be I who dances in your arms.

When you can hear the music
in the silence of the night,
dance upon the clouds and
it feels so damn right.

That is the moment
when love fuels desire
and causes a flame
that sets the soul on fire.

When the sun is shining,
on the rainiest of days
and the skies is blue
when they once seemed grey.

That is the moment
when love fuels desire
and causes a flame
that sets the soul on fire.

Listen to that music
it comes from the heart
and the dance of lovers
spins the sky filled stars.

That is the moment
when love fuels desire
and causes a flame
that sets the soul on fire.

If the truth be told and
my heart doth speak,
sunshine and rainbows
each day we'd greet.

Star lit skies
a moon so bright,
whispers of love
to embrace the night.

When love is real
and love is true,
it's gentle embrace
knows what to do.

The images of
dreams at night
and again the
when morning
shines bright.


I wanted words
of an eternal embrace,
to script a tale
of our special place.

such delight,
sweet memories
rule the night.

I cannot give you what is yours,
my heart you hold , I  rest assure.

I watched as the wind partnered with the trees,
the branches arched and shaking off its leaves.
The dance of nature documents time,
another season is here to again tease the mind.
I am under the weather blah, blah , blah.

If one word should fall upon your ears,
the word of love would be that we shared.
From my heart I sing from my soul I dared,
to dance upon the heavens without a thread of fear.

If anything should know,
my pillow has secrets sown,
I cried the many tears,
wishing you were here.

I lay here daydreaming,
visualizing you next to me.
It might be crazy that I love you so,
that is why I write the words that
won't let you go.

If anything should know,
the hills of the hollow bestowed,
the seasons of our love and
the dance upon the clouds above.

The deeper the experience,
the more you internally feel,
like the love between two souls
that removed the outer shields.

To touch is a gift,
to feel is magical indeed,
like the moment you touched my heart
and I began to live out my dreams.

To love is the journey,
to follow till the end of time,
from when I fell in love with you
and nothing could compare to you and I.

On one level I experienced a pain,
the ache that distance can bring,
until I gazed unto the heavens
and realized you never left me.

Song that fills the silence of the night,
the dance that lovers silhouette on high.
Rainbows arch across the seas,
to bridge our hearts and dreams.

On one level I experienced pain,
the ache that distance can bring,
until I gazed unto the heavens
and realized you never left me.

I can feel the embrace of heart,
the love that you gave from the start.
The joy memories bring and the love
that taught my very soul to sing.

On one level I experienced pain,
the ache that distance can bring,
until I gaze unto the heavens
and realized you never left me.


My hand reached out in the dark of night and I grasped at what seem to be air. The darkness caused my body to quiver as the thought of you  standing here. Images filled my mind, memories like a blanket of stars, I held on as if by magic the moments when I first knew you cared. Sweet thoughts caused me to smile, whisper of songs we shared. From my heart to yours a word of love that reveals how much one can care.


I am the water,
through the stream I flow,
to the river, over mountains,
to your heart I go.

I am the wind,
from tree to tree,
a whisper of love,
propelled by a dream.

I am the air,
in each breath you take,
from the time you sleep,
till you first awake.

I am the stars,
shining bright in the sky,
a reminder that you are as close,
as a thought to the mind.

I am the love,
united by souls,
embrace of a moment
in an eternal hold.

Words tell a story,
the heart tells of love,
but it is the soul that speaks
of happiness when two souls became one.

What matters most we have already attained.


I thought the key lie in the hands of another,
when the key actually lies within our own heart.

It is the cycle of the monarch butterfly,
which reveals the simplicity of life
while providing us with the a view of
and altered outcome that arises
from unexpected circumstances
which tend to complicate the

It is true... on a clear day and I can see forever.
Choice.. we meet with it every morning,
work with throughout the day and take it
to bed with us at night.
Everyone can change the world,
one person at a time, that is the importance of self responsibility.
There is a moment time where we are granted such clarity
and than it all seems to make sense.
I have no doubt of the love that ignites in the heart
and is shared by the soul.
There were moments that I questioned the " what is "
I now understand the reality of our fraction.
I don't ask you to understand,
just love me.
I see your love like sunshine through the trees, always there to warm that is what my heart believes. Reaching from the hollow, a tear falls from my eyes as I think about true love and the reality of time. I'd sail an ocean, climb a mountain high, if only to guarantee you by my side. Stars fading as morning nears and I wake to the song bird as migration nears. Another season has come and gone and  I note the days where I wait for you to come along.

Turning the pages,
the chapters long,
one by one,
some without song.

I believed my heart,
a collision of magnitude,
that joined us from
a far.

The pages age
and  crumble to the floor
and I can't see what
tomorrow has in store.

I'll go on dreaming,
if dreams make you mine,
I'll go on loving,
till your in these arms of mine.

I'll go on believing,
that you are here for me.
I'll go on writing,
if writing documents the soul.


I sent a whisper to cross the miles,
when you wake up, you'll see my smile.
I sent a dream to haunt you in your sleep
and when you close your eyes you find me.

I sent a burst of energy and love infused
it is full of sweet memories.
I sent a kiss and hour, so they
may find you and shower.

I sent my love I sent my love, I sent my love
to you. I sent my love to you.


The Window

I am the Wind

I see you standing there,
as I looked on at the sea air
I reached out many times
to find you disappear.

Kisses from the heavens,
embrace that only you can feel,
engaged with the moment
to you my love I share.

The chill that you feel,
the dance with the trees,
the visions that touch you,
I am the wind and you are
the sun that warms my breeze.

It is the shimmer,
the sparkle I see,
from the heavens
you are the stars
 to me.

Brightly shining
I can see in your eyes,
the reflection and the
dreams that get me by.

I have been creating small terrariums that are inspired by a young woman who asked me to design for her and my childhood memory of gazing into the sugar created eggs. You looked through the eye of the sugar egg to see little people and rabbits villages. As a child one moment of gazing at the egg created a moments escape. I find with the emotional stress of the day that there are many ways to escape. My most common escape is out into the gardens, down to the waterfall and sometimes a warm bath with candles lit and music playing or a dance on the clouds with you. There are times when it is not so easy to separate from the trials and others way are necessary to ease the mind. My fingers drawn to the keyboard, my mind has me lying in your arms and my heart holds you close.

Two hearts embrace
as our souls entwine,
paired sweet love ,
it is you and I.

Day after day,
I think of the love
that grows strong
between us.

Two hearts embrace,
as our souls entwine
paired sweet love,
it is you and I.


Looking out my window,
this is what I see,
a memory so warm
it melts my heart as it
brings to my knees.

I pray in gratitude
of the time we shared
and the love between us
that shows how much
you care.


In my heart a window,
the joy is what you'll see,
when you look inside
and follow the dreams.

In your arms for the moment,
feel if you will
in your heart for eternity
or till time stands still.

In my heart a window,
the joy is what you'll see,
when you look inside
and follow the dreams.

You seemed so far away,
distant as can be,
until I gazed at the stars
and knew you were standing
there with me.

You seemed so quiet,
as if you went away
until I listened close
and through the song
birds you sang.

No darkness, no sadness,
no heartache here.
I only hold your love
and the memories we share.

No grey skies, or rain,
no storms here.
I only see the sunshine
that you and I share.


I write the words,
the gift I give
to document
an eternal bliss.

I dared to share,
my hearts desire,
from the moment
I felt the fire.

It is early in the morning,
rain is falling down,
no pit and patter
but it speaks has it hits
the ground.

Nourish life,
watch it grow,
such a love
I want everyone to know.

I close my eyes and you are always  there,
the embrace of love and  that impish smile and stare.
You take me in your arms and spin me all around
until I wake up and find I have fallen from the clouds.

On the Wings of a Butterfly

To love you is to feel your kiss in the morning breeze,
your embrace in each moment of the day.


Forever love is an endless chapter,
that keeps getting better.

One cannot forget what has
become engrained into their very soul.


It is all in the dance,
two, one to lead and the other to follow.
You can never have all the answers,
each day comes with its own set of questions.
My love for you has no boundaries.
The reality is that it takes a soul
to touch a heart.

I was never quite sure whether we wrote our own script or if destiny predetermined the path we were on.  Though we do have free will and a choice. I believe the doorway of circumstance and fate itself present a moment in time. How we respond to that moment in time determines the eventual outcome. Take for instance the energy companies, they say we have a choice of providers. Company's will tell you almost anything to sign you on as a customer. So you have to determine what is truth, what will benefit you at the moment and what will be the best choice for the long haul. I find we are not always equipped to make those choices for ourselves and that we may falter and have to work through a bad choice.
Life is like a massive game of dominoes, where one choice leads us to another, like tapping one upon the shoulder. The network of people who touch our hearts becomes uncountable. As it is more than one can imagine.
I see our world in a troubling place in time. Wars, disease, hatred, greed, jealousy and pure evil on both a international and domestic front. Yet at the same time, I know that we have a chance to change the course, that destiny and fate offer us opportunities, how we respond to those opportunities redirects the path. On a personal note I realize that each day we are confronted with various choices and those choices do indeed write the script. In the end it is true that we might be encouraged to turn the pages and  write what will become the next new chapter.
Many times I look back at life at the major moments in time that brought me to where I am today. Far from over, there is still way to much to do.

From the moment we met
and the time we shared,
it all came together and
it cannot be compared.

Lifts me up
when I have fallen down,
holds me close
as I spin around.


From the angels a story true,
stars twinkle and skies blue.
Whispered words of love
and a tale where two hearts
bond as one.

Tears down the cheek,
remind me how much you mean to me.
Your the sunshine on a dark day
and the star light when skies are gray.


I raced through the pages,
tore out quite a few,
just so I could find the chapter
where I am next to you.

I refused to let the words fade,
so I scripted them to my heart
where I'll keep them
to my dying day.

I raced through the pages,
tore out quite a few,
just I could find the chapter
where I am next to you.

I reached out at the darkness
and I felt your love here,
as your hand interlocked with mine
and a dream we shared.

My heart knew it to be true,
the happiness I found when
 fate brought us together
and we danced like angels
in the clouds.


I woke up from a dream
I quivered from the thought,
that you were in my arms
and never very far.

The darkness seemed to speak,
in a comforting tone,
No matter the miles
we are never alone.


I chose to love you,
I recognized your heart,
it filled me with love
from the start.

I chose to embrace,
to never let go
and dance upon the clouds
with you alone.

I chose to love you,
I recognized your heart,
it filled me with love
from the very start.

Right, left ,
up and down,
no matter where I go,
I know you are with me
your the joy I have come
to know.


Flit and flutter,
soar high,
on the wings of
a butterfly.

We are free
to live and love
here on earth
and heaven above.

I made a choice,
to journey with you,
no matter where you
are, I am right beside you.

Flit and flutter
soar high
on the wings of
a butterfly.


I can taste the sweetness
of your lips to mine,
feel the magic of
dreams via the mind.

I can hear the songs
that lovers sing ,
while dancing on
a cloud through
a memory.

No matter how many times I say it,
expressing my love for you,
each time I rearrange it,
it comes out " I love you."


There is no returning
the love I give to you,
you hold my heart forever,
you are a dream come true.

This moment is ours,
reach out and pull me next to you,
let's dance upon the clouds
as lovers do.

Feel the rain wake your spirit,
feel my love touch your heart,
the quiver that you experience
is our souls uniting from a far.
