Sings> You Bring a Bit of Sunshine

You bring a bit of sunshine,
to warm my heart each day.
The sweet few words of love
that delight in a magical way.

No room for tears or sadness
nor skies of dark and grey,
you've sent the smiles of life
to bring the warmth my way..

You bring a bit of sunshine
to warm my heart each day,
a simple touch of happiness
like a dream on replay.

Everyone one has a story
they'll tell you the blues,
my story is of love and
what love can do.

You bring a bit of sunshine
to warm my heart each day
and I keep it so very close
as in my heart it stays.

KENNY ROGERS - THROUGH THE YEARS [w/ lyrics]





Paint Me A Blue Sky

Paint me a blue sky,
with stars bright,
add your love
for a perfect night.

The visual delightful,
wonderful indeed,
from earth to the heaven
there is you and me.

I'll paint you a cloud,
puff, fluffy white,
where we can meet
both day and night.

~

If you ever had a chance to see a rose opening on a hot summer day, you find quickly that an early morning bud becomes a beautiful flower. Though there are times I have felt like the rose of life was a bit wilted and reluctant to open and share its beauty. But I find that we can peel away the tattered petals to bring the beauty to light.



Wipes tears and snuggles close...








When You Wish Upon a Star by Linda Ronstadt (with Lyrics)

The Gift Of Love

The gift of love,
smiles that make us one,
the happiness we share
when we stop to show we care.

From the moment I awake
my thoughts of you partake
in dreams that are so surreal,
your heart I can  truly feel.


Wonderful as can be,
is the joy you bring to me,
a magical delight that
holds me day and night.

The gift of love,
smiles that make us one,
the happiness we share
when we stop to show we care.




.

Your Heart beats...

Weighted down by that which we cannot control. I find my thoughts scattered like a seed pod exploding in the wind.

My head on your shoulder,
your heart beats with mine,
as it gently brings comfort
to the heart, soul and mind.

Peace and happiness,
under our heavens blue,
from the moment you spoke
your love came through.

Reaching through darkness
to the light shining bright,
like our very own sunshine,
guiding your heart to mine.

My head on your shoulder,
your heart beats with mine,
as it gently brings comfort
to the heart, soul and mind.




~

Close your eyes,
sweet lullaby,
you're in my arms,
day and night.

Close as two can be,
heart to heart a memory,
flowers wait to bloom,
a gift of love from me to you.

Close your eyes,
sweet lullaby,
you're in my arms
day and night.

Softly sings of love for you,
a song right out of the blue,
child like it may seem to some,
but I know you are my love.

Close your eyes,
sweet lullaby,
you're in my arms,
day and night.

The Stars Up In The Sky

I began counting
the stars up in the sky,
a drift I started dreaming
you were by my side.

Lost in the moment
and happy as can be,
with my eyes closed
I saw you here with me.

I began counting
the stars up in the sky,
a drift I started dreaming
you were by my side.

At the gates of heaven
I turned back to see,
all that really matters
is what you mean to me.

I began counting
the stars up in the sky,
a drift I started dreaming
you were by my side.

My heart racing,
my knees wobbled so,
as I reached into the darkness
and your love set my soul a glow.

I began counting
the stars up in the sky,
a drift I started dreaming
you were by my side.

The Horizon

Look out at the horizon,
the division of earth and sky,
to view the revelation,
the sun will once more rise.
 
Mathematical perfection,
where life ignites a start,
like the moment I met you
the acquisition a merge of
hearts.
 
 
 
 
 



The seasons are like chapters of life,
documenting the good and the bad.
 
~
Yesterdays sun was like fools gold,
it shined so bright but failed to warm the day.
 
~
 



There is no chocolate cake
no party balloons in the air
and never the less spring
is undoubtedly still here.

Dance with our hearts,
hold each other near,
share in the moment and
show how much we care.

The season is a bit fickle
sometimes rain and snow,
but still we celebrate
as it documents how
friendship grows.

There are people in passing,
for a moment or a day,
but love likes ours
is here to stay.

There is no chocolate cake,
no party balloons in the air
and never the less spring
is undoubtedly still here.



Acknowledge the Obvious

Acknowledge the obvious,
the sky is certainly blue,
the road may twist and turn,
but it always leads me to you.

Vision in the darkness,
so I just might clearly see,
no matter the distance,
you are always here with me.
~

Only song breaks the silence,
from the heart we sing,
wordless sounds in repetition,
hum the joy you bring.

Only dreams await,
as I lay here to sleep,
my mind drifts to you,
like a sweet memory.

Only song breaks the silence,
from the heart we sing,
wordless sounds in repetition,
bum the joy you bring.

Happy Birthday...Spring!

The seasons are preparing to trade off like the changing of the guards. I find myself caught up in the storms of life. Trying to bring order to that which has been in a disarray. I find it difficult as I feel torn between place and time. Wiping a tear I place myself in the moment. It is as if Spring will be celebrating its birthday. One of my favorite times of the year as it does bring a sense of renewal. The birthing of a spirit, battling its way through the wind and rain. There after the storm we see the gifts the season had kept safe. Trees tightly budded, crocus blooming in the snow and the change in the song of the birds.

There is a chill to the moment,
though the sun warms the air.
There are tears and laughter,
from the time we've shared.

Alone and yet with you
faraway and yet so near,
there is something quite
special just knowing that
you care.

If the wind should carry these whispers home,
may it be to your heart and your heart alone .

Transitioning to Spring

My daughter was cleaning out her closet. There was an array of items left over from when I used the room for storage. I sat as she pulled out little dresses from when she was a child to a scrap book I started when I first began my own business. I said "I am really getting tired watching you work." She said " you are tired watching me work?" I said to her " you have never been emotionally tired?" She said " no , well yeah." She prepared boxes to take to the second hand store and as she put each item in the box, I watched as years of my life passed before me. She said " every thing is really old, you surely don't want any of it?" There was her dress from her first day at kindergarten, her first communion dress, evening dresses, jewelry etc. Some of it she was right about, it was there so long, though it held memories it was time to get rid of it.
I didn't realize how long I have been struggling, how long ago my step to freedom began. Well not until I paged through the scrap book. There I was in the newspaper my hair its natural color and looking all those years younger. It was the article cut and placed on the opposite page that reminded me of the first event at the expo mart. It was the first time that I took my writing and placed it on display. I can remember it like yesterday. So many people stopping to read and a customer who paid me in advance to write and took home nothing. She was happy with what I wrote and she sent me an article that I saved. It read like this..." remember exactly where God wants you to be,  may those gifts you have been given pass on the love. Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance and to bask in the sun"
As I struggled through the years trying to make sense of this journey a flood of tears surfaced. Surely I had understood the song of a free soul  and I danced and basked in the sun. The claw of darkness had not fully released its grip upon my being.

Faith in tomorrow,
hope stands today,
to see us through the
darkness and lead us
on our way.

Tears might have fallen,
filled of sorrow and despair,
till the threads of happiness
wove the love we share.

~
I brought yesterday to the door of today,
it was to heavy to carry through.

~

There are little signs of winter,
ice still on the ground and yet
I sense springs transition as
the swell of buds are found.

Chapters in the making,
turning a page a day,
closing of a book
and throwing it away.

..

Feather from an angel,
a petal from a rose,
memories of a dream
is how this story goes.
 
The evening is upon us
another passing day,
my head  upon the pillow
to dream heartache away.
 
 
 





I file memories according to their importance
and recall memories with the greatest impact.
~
 
Caring equals love and
than there is everything else.
 
 
`
I saw the petals of a rose in all its glory,
the fragrance a scent of heaven
and than I watched the petals
crumble and the scent fade.
~
To turn off the tears one must never again feel...that is impossible.
 
 
Worse than the chill from the cold,
is the chill brought by your absence.
 
Screams in silence...
~

I feel five years old " life is not fear"


~
Of course others have it worse,
but there are others who have it better.

Love is Caring


 I found this poem that I had written some time ago and it reminds us that we truly are only earths caretakers. Responsible only for the limited time we have here on earth. Under the wire for a customer order, I felt the stress heavily upon my shoulders. I knew that to relax I needed to place my fingers upon the keyboard and I could separate myself from the heavy of life. 
There were times that the hollow, especially in the winter months were like a prison of sort. It was the gift of writing that revealed the freedom that I lacked. It wasn't till today that I completely understood how important writing had become. 

Caretaker 

We do not own the butterfly, flowers or the trees nor the sun that crest the mountain or the land that meets the sea. We are here to embrace, care take if you will for those who will follow we leave what we've not killed.

I glanced out the window as the woodpecker said" hello "and at the budded leaves and shrubs waiting to  flower in their spring time show. The season is nearing, the celebration of life, where the nourishment of sun and rain will allow for us a meaningful amount of growth.

We stand on borrowed time for there is no guarantee of how many tomorrows we will stand to dream. Man is filled with anger, hatred and greed and with all his earthly power, all he will take with him in passing is his faded memories.

Earths soil through your fingers, sunshine through your hair; this is the gift of life that we have to share. The visions of a galaxy, beyond where we have yet to go and as I gaze once more upon the heavens I realize how little we really know.



~

My hands upon the keyboard, 
the season has no control, 
for I can soar a mountain 
and stand at heavens door. 

This is certainly freedom, 
where I can feel you near
share in a moment with 
the one who dared to care.


                                                 Life's little gifts affect us in a big way.


                                                      The sky is always blue,
                                                       the sun always shines
                                                       and a cloud passes,
                                                       it takes my love to you.



  Love is like sunshine it always finds away to brighten your day. 






   I thought I didn't like winter. 
When in all reality I just don't like being without you.

Dependable Arms

Sometimes you need to take a moment,
to remind yourself what your heart holds dear.
 
~
I carry your love in my heart,
that way I can always move forward.
 
~
 
The darkness chisels at the strength,
that is why I hold on to your light.
 
~
 
Love endures...
 
~
When I need you most....I just close my eyes.
 
~
 
 



The words in repetition,
over and over again,
a reminder of happiness,
of the one I love.

One day times forever,
forever times a day,
the words of love
secured in a magical way.
~




Whispers from my pillow,
words under a spell,
tell a love story,
we know so well. to feel

Heart to heart,
a warm embrace,
could melt the winter snow,
and with summer replace.

I can see the sunshine,
on the darkest of days,
like your love
warming in a special way.

Whispers from my pillow,
words under a spell,
tell a love story,
we know so well.
~
 Alive am I
                                              
happy indeed,                                                         

to feel your love

and soar free.


Script to the heavens,

the words of love,

to live on forever

in the clouds above.










Dependable arms
and a warm heart,
to dance from afar,
high above the stars.

Strong shoulders,
 and gentle hands,
holds me close,
while taking a stand.

Love in a magical way,
from the moment I awake,
till the day fades away.




I have your love and you have mine,
forever and ever and for all time.
 
Some things change, some stay the same,
but this love of ours grows with each day.

~

I feel contentment,
holding you in my heart,
distance matters little,
whether you are near or far.
 
Close as my bedtime pillow
and seen through a dream,
nothing really matters as
long as you are here with me.
 
The skies of blue above us,
summer sun around us,
warming my soul,
it is you that took a hold.
 
I feel contentment,
holding you in my heart,
distance matters little,
whether you are near or far.
 


 


Dependable arms,
my head on your shoulder,
whisper of words sweet,
a memorable moment.

Silly songs,
with a word or two,
a celebration of how
I feel for you.

Dependable arms,
my head on your shoulder,
whisper of words sweet,
a memorable moment.

Grateful am I,
for each day we share,
from one who taught
me what it is to care.

Dependable arms,
my head on your shoulder,
whisper of words sweet
a memorable moment.

There is no distance between us,
I can tell you why,
you are as close as the
thoughts that enter my mind.

Dependable arms,
my head on your shoulder,
whisper of words sweet
a memorable moment.

Time takes to the wind,
but our love has no end
You're always with me,
forever my friend.

Dependable arms,
my head on your shoulder,
whisper of words sweet
a memorable moment

~
Sings for you...

All I need is your kiss good morning,
all I need is your kiss good night,
all I need to really know,
is that you truly love me so.

All I need is your kiss good morning,
all I need is your kiss good night
all I need to really know,
is that you truly love me so.

da da da, da da da..............da daaaaaaaa
da da da, da da da..............da daaaaaaa

All I need is your kiss good morning,
all I need is your kiss good night,
all I need to really know,
is that you truly love me so.



~
It is rather simple,
just close your eyes
and the joy you'll feel,
will be no surprise.

For have I been with you,
whether you're near or far,
for you carry me along,
I'm there in your heart.

It is rather simple,
just close your eyes,
and the magic you see
is the love from inside.
~

I have your love and you have mine,
forever and ever and for all time.
 
Some things change and some stay the same,
but this love of ours grows with each day.
