Heart

My promise day in and day out, 
to document our love on earth and in the clouds. 
Writing heartfelt words of my love for you 
as only my heart would know how to do. 

~

Go on and do it, 
hold me in your arms, 
I've been holding you, 
holding you in my heart. 


Go on and say it, 
if saying it makes it so, 
I say it every day, 
"I love you so."







Rest of My Life

I'm gonna close my eyes
and hold you so very tight,
as long as they stay closed
I'll hold you day and night.

I'm gonna whisper
sweet words of love
and send them to you
via the clouds above.

I'm gonna pull you near
and dance through life,
keep you in my heart
for the rest of my life.

~

I reached out to the heavens,
the skies no longer gray and
in the blue of the moment
all sadness began to fade.

 Like the roar of the wind
 as it tapped at my window pane,
I feel your love within me
day after day.

Bright like sunshine
as you warm my soul ,
giving meaning to this life
when your love first took
hold.

I reached out to the heavens,
the skies no longer gray and
in the blue of the moment
all sadness began to fade.

~

Hold my hand,
my heart is yours,
forever and ever
my forevermore.

Looks to the clouds,
reach for the stars,
mine and yours
no matter how far.

Hold my hand,
my heart is yours,
forever and ever
my forevermore.

No sadness for us,
these tears of joy,
united in love
cannot be destroyed.

Hold my hand,
my heart is yours,
forever and ever
my forevermore.

~
Life is fragile,
fragile indeed,
I give you my love
when you are in need.

Whether I am here
or my soul at rest,
the words I leave
are a testimony of
our love I confess.

Life is fragile,
fragile indeed,
I give you my love
for you to do as
you please.












Everyday is ...National I love you day.

It's one of those mornings ...I am awake but not so anxious to get out of bed and face the day. We are at the verge of turning the calendar to 2017. I kind of laughed as I looked at the holidays that have been created. There is actually on September 22nd a " deary diary day."  Well obviously I don't need a day set aside to write,  I thought I would start with January so you don't miss any holidays or observances  I was going to create my own holiday  the " Dear I love you more day" but actually everyday is Dear I love you more day.

Cruel Fate

As 2017 quickly approaches I find myself not so much filled with regret as questioning time, fate and circumstance. I didn't go looking nor did I hope to find a love so gentle it calms me through my most troubled times. I never expected my heart could feel this way, until I met you and I was never quite the same. I feel a certain amount of happiness to have you in my life and a touch of sorrow that doesn't feel quite right. I do believe circumstance keeps us apart and time passes so quickly as tool of cruel fate. I'll take this moment to tell you how I feel as long as you are listening the tear will be still.

My heart is beating
for you and you alone
from the moment
you first said hello.

My eyes are closed
and my heart is open wide
and you quickly entered
and are there inside.

My heart is beating for
you and you alone ,
from the moment
you first said hello.

We share what others
may never understand,
a love that strengthens
without any demands.

My heart is beating for
you and you alone,
from the moment
you first said hello.

Our flesh is parted
our souls are one
and that is the story
of this special kind
of love.

and a chill races through my body.

2017...Hope and Faith

I am skipping Christmas and going straight to 2017. Goodbye 2016 I don't know how it was for the wine industry but it wasn't a very good year for family and friends. I spent the first months of spring two months at that, next to the bedside of unequivocally the devil. Kind of reminded me of a baby when they are sleeping  you say ahhh but when they wake up and screaming and you don't know why you shake your head. But again on a positive note as my son would say " we are on the right side of the green grass."
Summer was busy and working had me looking up , ok ok , so I am known to walk with my head in the clouds. It was quite the option than to keep my feet on the ground and deal with the negativity that can surround us on a regular basis. But all in all my head afloat I survived Summer with not much fanfare.
Labor day use to be our big holiday celebration and open house of sort  where friends and family came , ate , partied , laughed and played games...on a sad note most of them have passed away...no stopping the aging process lol. Well except for me I am forever ten years old...my son inherited the gene for forever ten years old. That is good and bad. Speaking of passing away, I had to say goodbye to another sibling, the down side to a big family is that you have more to lose. My sister went out with a big bang ...literally. Who in their right mind tries to beat a train...well key word there is "right mind." Yesterday my favorite Aunt passed away ...Good bye Aunt Josie...she was up in age and lived a good life but then again on the down side for all her family nothing puts a damper on the holidays than dying at Christmas etc. 
There were days I didn't think I would pull through , felt like hands around my neck squeezing the life out of me. Well I guess God just isn't finished with me yet, I am still here. My sister Lex is still hanging in there , health issues, dialysis, bronchitis, slipping on the ice destroying what little brain cells she has left she calls me and says" Rachel I don't think i'll be here to take care of you. Those are definitely not words I wanted to hear. But I thought about that, I am her little sister no matter how old we get. When I was a small child and my earliest memories were of her pushing me in the old carriage she was more of a mother than a older sister. Through the years as I got older the relationship changed she still was the big sister but then she became my best friend.  Watching her going through the struggles to survive is a hell in itself. 
Crappy as it all sounds there are some good times.....conversations where we laughed and a few where I cried. I come to realize rich or poor everyone has a little hell to deal with, okay some have a little bigger hell .. Life is a balance of circumstance , choice and well a bit of fate. Everyday is not going to be sunshine and blue skies and their is magical cure for the downside. well maybe reverts back to " thinking you're still ten years old "  They key is to bring balance...I didn't write the song but you have to sing...
"You've got to give a little, take a little 
And let your poor heart break a little
That's the story of,
That's the glory of love
You've got to laugh a little, cry a little
Before the clouds roll by a little
That's the story of,
That's the glory of love.
As long as there's the two of you
You've got the world and all its charms
And when the world is through with you
You've got each other's arms.
You've got to win a little, lose a little
And always have the blues a little
That's the story of,
That's the glory of love.

On this journey people come and go .... " hey I am not in kansas anymore" lol "people come and go so quickly here."    I  am grateful on this journey for those who have crossed my path and for those who dare to journey along side me. I am blessed and filled with love. Just thinking of having you in my life touches on many emotions, I am more at peace, filled with passion and a spiritual connection. At the core of my being when I am most fragile and filled with doubt I reach out and find you reaching back....yeah yeah yeah reached for your hand and  found your heart. 

But with each day that passes we still have hope and faith. I sure do hope 2017 is better and I have faith that it will be.

Upon the Heavens

I looked at the clouds
both dark and gray
with snowflakes falling
on a typical winter day.

I found myself dreaming
loving image of two,
on the cloud dance
there was me and you.

Heavenly Blue

When the sun sends warm rays
and the wind whispers your name,
when the skies are a heavenly blue
at that moment I know I am there
with you.

When my soul feels peace of mind
and your love with mine entwines,
when the clouds go passing by
at that moment I know you're
mine.

Take it to the attic...

Raising children an all to popular line when asked what to do with something was " take it to the attic." I hadn't been up there in a while and as I rummaged through the various boxes I found myself traveling once more through an array of memories. From the tiny snow suit that was passed down to each child to papers that were tucked in boxes from their school days.
The attic was more than a place where you hung on to items that should have been long ago donated to the second hand store, it was a place of solitude. I remember it as a safe haven when I couldn't necessarily get away. Sometimes a place of deep thought and occasionally a place where I could hide away from everything.
With the holidays approaching my mind reviews life like a child's flip book. Where you flip the pages and a picture story reveals itself. Maybe its more like the title of the movie " the good, the bad and the ugly" as life contains all of that and more.
Another year and another holiday approaching ...wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Again... reached for your hand and found your heart, 
touched your heart and found your soul.

Cherished Love

Star light, blue skies,
good night my love.
Daylight, sunshine,
good morning my love.

Whispers of the morning
and song in the night
all have the same message
of you whom I love.

Star light, blue skies,
good night my love.
Daylight, sunshine
good morning my love.

The dance upon the heavens,
finds me in your heart
and that is where you've
been from the very start.

~

Your love carries
me to a faraway land,
our very own heaven
where the heart commands.

I simply close my eyes
and there I am with you,
visualize the silhouette
the bonding of two.

~

Tighter and tighter
your hand in mine
weaves the flesh
as our love entwines.

Gentle spirit
comforts my soul
with a whisper of love
that daily unfolds.






Evening Skies

When stars scatter
over evening skies
the dreams of love
my heart confides.

Sleep well my darling
and wake unto me,
that is how each day
was meant to be.

Peaceful and loving
no magic of sort,
the soul in motion
is what we court.

When stars scatter
over evening skies
the dreams of love
my heart confides.

Forever My King

The stars don't write the songs
the words don't mean a thing,
I spend my time expressing
all that you mean to me.

Rearranging letters
and trying to make sense
but nothing really matters
in how the song is penned.

Like a collision in the heavens
with our passion and desire,
fuels the inner flames that
sets our love on fire.

Ba da da da da dum
ba da da da da dum
from my heart the emotions
to you whom I love.

The stars don't write the songs
the words don't mean a thing,
I spend my time expressing
all that you mean to me.

You're the reason for my smiles
the love that's in my heart,
the joy of a thousand heavens
when two souls are complete.



~

Forever my King
and forever your Queen,
that's the magic
only happiness can bring.

Forever and a day
when heaven awaits,
I'll be there with you
in the dream we made.

Sweet moment of peace
it's not make believe,
when hearts come together
and souls dance and sing.

Forever my King
and forever your Queen,
that's the magic only
happiness can bring.

















CM for the Charm

Kiss good morning,
a dance upon the clouds
an embrace of hearts
keeps the feet off the ground.

The hills are a blanket of white
and a chill is in the air
but I feel the warmth of love
with each moment we share.

~

I courtesy to my king
and he bowed to me
a smile upon my face
and I began to sing.

The melody of love
that only he would know
inspired by the heart
this love of ours grows.










Poem or Emotion or Happiness in Play

I gazed on out the window
at the newly fallen snow 
and my mind drifted to you
on this winter of white day.

I thought about the moment
you came into my life and 
brought your sweet happiness
that makes life feel right.

Some may it calling dreaming
or some kind of fantasy in play
but I know very different 
as our souls found their way.

Bonding of the spirit, 
friendship that doesn't fade,
with you in my heart 
it's a celebration a day.

Fluffs Pillow

Get close to me,
it's snuggle time,
your heart beat
in sync with mine.

Fluffs the pillow,
and holds you close
for you and I alone,
share what others will
never know.

Get close to me
it's snuggle time
your heart beat
in sync with mine.

Kiss

Reality has spoken
in the dance upon the clouds
the flesh has not yet bonded
but the heart is truly bound.

When the days are stressful
and I need that break away,
your love reaches on out to me
in this wonderful kind of way.

It is incredible the visions
the images of soul to soul
when we meet upon the clouds
and an everloving hold.

So as my fingers type the words
that will live beyond this earthly time,
I am quickly reminded
how hearts first entwined.


~
Tears upon the page fade the words of yesterday 
but scripted to the heart the love of two remain.

~

Courtesy to my king ....with a kiss. 


~
Sometimes you just need a good cry... 

~
My love for you is infinite.

In My Heart

It's not a dream
or a fantasy of sort,
the dance in the heavens
is joined heart to heart.

It eased the tension
I soared in disbelief,
with you my king beside me
we mastered such a feat.

It's not a dream
or a fantasy of sort,
the dance in the heavens
is joined heart to heart.

~
Soft white silk billows
as it takes to the wind,
the visual quite haunting
as here the dream begins.

Your hand reached out to me
and pulled me so ever close ,
no longer two silhouettes
one image now a pose.

Tears of emotion fell
as if lifted from a spell,
the dance of lovers
now a story tells.

I can feel your heartbeat
though distanced by the day,
you are here in my heart
and in my heart you'll stay.

...rest of life.

I don't know if it was the music playing
or the clouds that blanketed the night,
but a calm found me in your arms
and in your heart for the rest of life.

I don't know what you are thinking
or what tomorrow will bring
but my heart took to the heavens
where it once more began to sing.

I don't know if it was the music playing
or the clouds that blanketed the night,
but a calm found me in your arms
and in your heart for the rest of life.

The stars were hidden in the night
and the moon fell behind the clouds
as I reached out into the darkness
it was your love I felt surround.

I don't know if it was the music playing
or the clouds that blanketed the night,
but a calm found me in your arms
and in your heart for the rest of life.





More..

No ordinary kiss
from my lips to yours,
this kiss is from my heart
to you who I adore.

It comes via the heavens
on this detour we call life
by passing the darkness
to bring you sunshine bright.







~

My fingers on the keyboard
and my heart there with you
as I write the words of love
and what this love can do.

It eases my troubled heart,
bring sunshine to the gray
and when I share the words
it brings happiness to the day.

Destiny was written
on a page up in the clouds
and sent down to join us
as the world spins around.

My fingers on the keyboard
and my heart there with you
as I write the words of love
and what this love can do.

Brings a smile to my face
and warms my very soul
with the message of hope
that we forever hold.

~

Winter upon us,
skies dark and gray
and still the sunshine
finds the way.

Love across the mountains
no rivers to divide,
our love is awfully special
when you are by my side.


~


I reckon fate
had something to do
with bringing us together
and making gray skies blue.

Wipe away the tears
erase all signs of pain,
you're love is in my heart
each and everyday.

~

Like a breath deep
within my soul,
when I write the words
the darkness no longer
has a hold.

I can feel the power
and magic of love,
like an angel of heaven
sent down from above.

~



Powerful reflection
the shadows of my heart
reaches out to you
like the heavens touch the
stars.

Incredible emotions
a freedom from the start,
soothes my spirit whether
near or far.

Powerful reflection
the shadows of my heart
reaches out to you
like the heavens touch
the stars.


~
Words, words, words
mean nothing to me,
until infused with happiness
than love is set free.

I danced in the kitchen,
I giggled from the start
holding you close to me
as I held you in my heart.

~

It's not a dream,
no story to tell,
this feeling releases
me from my hell.

Tears of emotion
neither good or bad,
unlocking the gateway
where all can be had.

~

The words bring me closer,
how could that possibly be?
But somehow it channels
your love directly to me.

There is a calm within me
that somehow sets me free
as I begin to write the words
of the love that feels like a
dream.

Amazing

How can I say, 
what words can't convey?
the love I feel for you
day after day.

Sown in my heart 
grows more with each day,
the blooms of our love 
blossoms in an amazing way.

How can I say
what words can't convey?
the love I feel for you 
day after day.

Rainbows and Blue Skies

Rainbows and blue skies
when you're by my side,
anything is truly possible
with heart, soul and mind.

Sunshine on days of gray
in that magical kind of way,
brings laughter and love
to me each and every day.

When I hear your voice
see your smile so bright,
my heart starts racing
day and night.

Rainbows and blue skies
when you're by my side,
anything is truly possible
with heart, soul and mind.

~

They say that " laughter is the best medicine"...

When you laugh I laugh,
when you sing I sing,
when you dance I dance
in all of my dreams.

When you live I live,
when you believe I believe
when you touched my heart
our loved beamed.

When you laugh I laugh,
when you sing I sing,
when you dance I dance
in all of my dreams.

~

Touch my heart
heal my soul
feel your love
a tender hold.

While I'm awake
or in my dreams
there is always
you and me.

Touch my heart
heal my soul
feel your love
a tender hold.

~

I took to dreaming and
your love I embraced,
quickly warmed my soul
as I felt a kiss gentle to my
face.

I took to smiling
released the sadness in me,
replaced it with all your love
so my heart could once more
begin to sing.

My Thinking Place


This place never changes
though the seasons come and go,
here at my thinking place
that erases all signs of woe.

It's as if God redirected
and somehow would know,
the path that we would take
would allow our love to grow.

It's the experience of the heart
and the meeting of two souls ,
that entwined both together
in an everlasting hold.

This place never changes
though the seasons come and go,
here at my thinking place
that erases all signs of woe.

Holiday

Everyday is a holiday
with you in my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

You're the sparkle in my eyes
and the smile upon my face,
you're the love of my life
that the heavens graced.

Everyday is a holiday
with you n my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

This jubilee of friendship
means the world to me,
like gathering the stars
for a beautiful bouquet.

Everyday is a holiday
with you in my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

The warmth of your love
ignites within my soul
embracing this life with you
never grows old.

Everyday is a holiday
with you in my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

I can feel your tenderness
throughout any given day
in away that triggers happiness
that never ever fades.

Everyday is a holiday
with you in my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

My eyes are closed
and my heart is open for you
and that is where I find you
on days both gray and blue.

Everyday is a holiday
with you in my heart,
I celebrate each moment
whether near or a far.

I wake up loving you
in this most magical way
and that is I carry you
through out the day.

Cloud

I gazed unto the heavens
and it was no surprise
that I reached for you
on the cloud passing by.

My heart was racing as
I quickly closed my eyes
feeling your loving embrace
for one more peaceful time.

I gazed unto the heavens
and it was no surprise
that I reached for you
on the cloud passing by.

Love Challenges Winter

Spiraling hill of leafless trees
a silhouette against the gray,
suddenly swayed with the wind
to announce winter had found
its way.

As if the trees were dancing
they moved from left to right
partnering with the season
for an early winter sight.

Snowflakes from the heavens
dressed in puffs of fluffy white
scattered upon the earth
creating a stillness in the night.

Written in the heavens
the bond of two souls as one
as they stand to challenge another
season with the power of love.


My Morning Sunshine

That first snowfall
glistens in the moonlight,
the start of winter begins
despite the seasons of life.

The night has passed
and a morning chill is here,
as I wake up thinking of you
and a shiver keeps me from
lying still.

Measure the days
where I long for you and
multiply them by the ache
as my heart comes up
with a million days of blue.

I don't get this journey
or the path we're on
but I know I'd rather
hold your hand like in
sweet love song.

I write the words
so the world will know
that the greatest love
continues to grow.

It's the magic of thought
that consumes each day
from the moment I wake up
till the dreams find their way.

As I watch the moon fading
I know that you are here,
you are close as the moonlight
that two hearts can share.

The soul goes on rambling
to document each day,
so that when the day passes
will remembered in a special
kind of way.

One more look out the window
at this dark and cold Autumn day,
I find myself longing for
that warm and wonderful embrace.

I don't let a moment pass
without thinking of you,
you are my morning sunshine
and my starry skies of blue.

Feel The Magic

I could feel the magic
as if your energy was here,
like reaching in the darkness
to bring your love near.

Gazing out the window
at the bare winter trees,
I found myself dreaming
that you were here with
me.

I could feel the magic
as if your energy was here,
like reaching in the darkness
to bring your love near.

Internally spoken
the words of love expelled,
the expression of hearts
from the heavens fell.








From the moon shining bright
to the dark and gray morning sky,
from the moment I fall asleep
till I am once more awake.

I find myself thinking of you
spending each day a new
sharing heart and soul while
making those gray skies blue.

I am sure the heavens
belong to you and I ,
just gaze on out the window
and it's no surprise.

Your Kiss

Wipe the tears with your kiss,
warm my heart with your smile,
embrace with your sweet love
if only for a little while.

From the very first day
when it all seemed surreal
you walked into my life
and time began to heal.

Wipe the tears with your kiss,
warm my heart with your smile,
embrace with your sweet love
if only for a little while.

To explain the ache deep in my heart
is to reveal the void when we are apart.
The emptiness just won't go away
until I'm in your arms day after day.

Wipe the tears with your kiss,
warm my heart with your smile,
embrace with your sweet love
if only for a little while.

Emotion Infused Words

 Reunited souls,
 hearts at their best
 the comfort of our love
 survived life's test.

 Whispers from the heavens
 an invitation of peace
 as dreams lay the foundation
 of the finest memories.


Saturday, November 12, 2016

Life is but a song.

Love's sweet melody
from the first of morn
and a good night lullaby
from my heart pours.

To share in your happiness
would brighten my day
and chase away the darkness
that is in my life engrained.

Life is but a song
the soul dares to sing
I can feel it in my heart
as it plucks at memories.

...your love.

The power of your love
and the magic of a dream,
touches my heart as if
it were the first of spring.

The warmth of the moment
as sweet music fills the air
reminds me of the tenderness
that only lovers share.

From the first of morning
till I close my eyes at night,
it's only you my love
that brings a smile of delight.

The power of your love
and the magic of a dream
touches my heart as if
it were the first of spring.

Oh you jest...

The loudest screams are in silence...
~

I rather like the thought of hibernating like a bear.

~

Every story has an end...I don't like most endings.

~

Molly and me...

~

You jest...said the devil.

~

Sometimes I think...damn that crystal ball.


~

The heart has the ability to see
what our eyes fail to.

~




Gulliver travel moment...
can't breathe nor move or live without you. 



Every song sings your name
and every breeze feels the same,
like the clouds passing by
as an invitation to you and I.

Can you hear the whispers
from my heart to yours?
There is no rerouting and
simply no detours.

Every song sings your name
and every breeze feels the same,
as I wake up in the morning
and my thoughts race to you.


~

Some scripts are written on the clouds of the heavens...and then their is reality.


~

The souls approach to love is quite different 
for it reveals the internal view. 


Like a dragon breathing fire
you have one side and on the other the darkness that ensues.


Blah, blah, blah I am...

~

There are many ways of being trapped ...
there we go with someone else's script.


~
Sometimes I am running so fast,
it's difficult to understand how my feet are standing still. 

~

Growls...lol 

~
Okay, molly, me and my pillow. 





                                               





Heavens

When the voice shadows the night
and the song suddenly escapes the soul,
when silence surrounds the moment
and the river now runs cold.

That'll be the moment
when dreams makes us one
as the moon takes it place
and outdoes the sun.

When the voice shadows the night
and the song suddenly escapes the soul,
when silence surrounds the moment
and the river runs cold.

That's when I feel
like a breath from deep inside,
I feel the magic of loving you
and having you by myside.

~
I am not a part of the heavens without you, the stars mean nothing when you are not myside. Morning, day or night, it is all quite the same as the only thing special happen when our paths crossed one day.

My head upon the pillow and the blanket I hold tight as I take to daydreaming of you in mylife. The room seems empty and that maybe true but my heart overflows with all my love for you.


Tonight

Let's make love as we
take the stars by surprise,
meet me tonight under
the chilling moon light.

Feel the warmth of
hearts meld into one
and the magic of souls
that can't be undone.

Let's make love as
we take the stars by surprise,
meet me tonight under
the chilling moon light.

Something happens
that I can't quite explain,
as take to the heavens
in this most unique way.


Let's make love as
we take the stars by surprise
meet me tonight under
the chilling moon light.

You're the best of my dreams
in this magic of sort
that brings happiness
like never before.

Let's make love as we
take the stars by surprise,
meet me tonight under
the chilling moon light.

More...

Time makes it very clear of
the time we've have to share,
you found your forever place
here within my heart each day.

You are my morning sun,
my one true and only love,
you're my moon at night
my very reason for life.

The song escapes from my soul,
from where you first took hold,
that is how it is meant to be
like living in a dream.

I wake up in the morning
with thoughts of you and
at that very second I hope
that you are thinking of me
too.

~


My heart sings of love
calming my restless soul
as if you were here beside me
in a warm and loving hold.

From earth to the heavens
to that clouds of yours and mine,
my body may still be here
but you have me heart and mind.

The bond remains unbroken
around and round it goes
infinite this passion
that within me grows.

Houdini at its best
from here I disappear
just to feel your arms
like the surrounding air.

More than words can say
is the feelings trapped inside,
only to be released to where
your love meets mine.

Embrace My Love For You

I'm gonna write you
a song of sweet love,
script it to the heavens
in the blue above.

I'll place my heart into it
with words only for you
and hope that you will
understand how much
I love you

I'm gonna write you
a song of sweet love
script it to the heavens
in the blue sky above.




Disney Classics - Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly) (So Dear to My Heart)

From The Cloud to Your Arms

Falling, falling, falling,
catch me if you can,
from the clouds upon
the heavens to where
it once began.

Like sunshine which
warms the Autumn day,
your love warms my soul
in its very own way.

Falling, falling, falling,
catch me if you can,
from the clouds upon
the heavens to where
it once began.

United by the heavens
and all the stars in the sky,
you are just a thought away
for in my heart you reside.



When I Think Of You

Call it a thought,
a feeling or two
that moves my soul
and when I think
of you.

From early morn
till late at night
I'm caught in the
magic of you in
my life.

Thoughts

Flowers from the garden,
fall to the autumn spell
placed upon the table
are the seasons belle.

Happiness and sadness
I am caught up in the day
controlled by some wickedness
that plays a foolish game.

Stepped on back to view
raised my head to stay afloat
but the reigns of tomorrow
have yet to let me go.

Another winter approaching
they are calling for snow
but the winter that I feel
reveals the same window.

~

Like the silence of a tear 
so fall the cries of the heart upon the night. 


~

As winter approaches I once more document 
the struggles as if my heart placed upon a puppets strings.

~
I have lost count of the tears 
for they flow like a river as it joins the sea.


~

Understanding is only half the ball game
especially when you are in the outfield. 

~
I weep for all humanity.

~

So precious is life ...to live it as if tomorrow will never come. 

~
I am not sure which test I am failing 
that of the mind, heart or soul for the tears fall from all three.

~

I look at those whose struggles are greater 
but it doesn't lessen ones own pain. 

~
I need a break and not in the clouds, 
as you will always stumble back to reality.

~
There are never easy answers 
but I would settle for any answers.

~






Two Souls

Some people share the flesh
and others are joined by heart
we have a complete combination
and we had it from the start.

We stepped in with compassion
and blended happiness and desire
that is how two souls come together
in this moment heavenly inspired.

Unwritten pages lean on tomorrow's time
waiting for us the writers to fill in the lines.
Sweet love and patience and a bit of sunshine
together we write the chapters of two hearts
and souls entwined.

Good Night

Sing me a lullaby, hold me close
and say goodnight, whisper
words of love from your heart
to mine.

I'll sing you a lullaby, hold you close
and say goodnight, whisper
words of love from my heart
to yours.

Sleep my darling, in my arms
dream the dreams under the stars,
this is how sweet love should be
you here with me.

Sing me a lullaby, hold me close
and say goodnight, whisper
words of love from your heart
to mine.

I'll sing you a lullaby, hold you close
and say goodnight, whisper
words of love from my heart
to yours.

Forever is yours and mine
a new meaning will define,
for I will love you heart and soul
and my sweet is our forever hold.

Sing me a lullaby , hold me close
and say good night, whisper
words of love from your heart
to mine.

I'll sing you a lullaby, hold you close
and say good night, whispers words
of love from my heart to yours.

Life is Chapters


I don't make a habit of reviewing all the chapters of life but occasionally something sparks a memory.  I don't believe we have to review them because the chapters are part of who we are.  Like reading a book, I have been known to skip over some pages and others leave this imprint in your mind and in your heart and for sure in the soul.. 
My mother's rule of life was " you made your bed, you lie in it'. So to this point in time right or wrong I made decisions that would get me through the day in the best way I knew how. There were times where reality crumbled and the dreams and fantasy took over. That is until you find yourself falling off the cloud and trying to land on both feet. 
With winter approaching I find myself wondering whether dancing on the clouds is enough to see me through. I find myself going through all the chapters at one time like a vintage child's flip book. not able to stop on one page or another it all appears like a blur. 
Taking a deep breath and slowing exhaling as if nothing else existed for the moment. If all of life is lessons what was to be learned by the various chapters? My youngest son responded to a customer who was reading poetry and she said "where is God when you need him". My son Max responded " God works in subtle ways" Indeed he does, I reached for your hand and I found you heart or was it I reached for your heart and found your hand?

Once more out the window
to see what I could see 
and the gifts of God 
whispered of love to me.

Delicate and with precision
each chapter reveals the need
for the simple pleasures of life
are felt like an Autumn breeze.

Expressions of the heart 
reveal all that we need 
to comfort the soul 
like a well written dream. 

The answers are all around 
and the truth is what we see, 
if we look close enough 
we are scripting new memories.

In My Heart

I looked upon the heavens
the sky was dark and gray
and the early morning
moonlight seem to lead
the way.

Trees standing tall
bare branches that sway
cast an eerie silhouette
of a passing Autumn day.

The rise of the sun
took away the gray
and behind the clouds
of Autumn a blue sky
found its way.

Brighter with each second,
more majestic everyday
reminding us that we
are only a cloud break
away.

No distance between us
the stars are just the same
and as we gaze on out
the window we are
reminded day by day.

For you are ever close
I tucked you safely away,
as I placed you in my heart
and that is where you remain.

Breath in the Wind

You're a thought a sweet song and a breath in the wind.


You're the song that sings to my soul 
and the words of an everlasting hold. 

You're the dreams day and night,
 the sunshine of my life.

You're the song that sings to my soul
and the words of everlasting hold.

~

I can't shake this feeling 
of the ache in my heart,
wanting you and needing
you from the very start.

You're the tears 
that stream my cheek
and the memories 
that make we weak. 

I can't shake this feeling 
of the ache in my heart,
wanting you and needing
you from the very start.

The void that I feel
is both gray sky and blue,
Wishing and a wanting 
that you feel the same way too.

~
Screams in silence,
no words from my lips
and yet I close my eyes
to feel your tender kiss.


These tears of mine 
are nothing new, 
they are filled with
this love I have for you.

~

Sometimes you gotta 
just let the love grow, 
shout to the heavens 
so the angels know. 

Hearts are broken
some never to mend 
and others are whole
to the end. 

Sometimes you gotta
just let the love grow, 
shout to the heavens
so the angels know. 

They'll know forever
how it should be,
when the you collided
heart soul with me. 

Sometimes you gotta
just let the love grow, 
shout to the heavens
so the angels know. 

My sweet , my darling
is this your way 
of haunting my soul 
day after day/

Sometimes you gotta
just let the love grow
shout to the heavens
so the angels know. 

Plucking the chords
this song for you 
takes gray skies and
makes them blue. 

Sometimes you gotta
just let the love grow
shout to the heavens
so the angels know. 

~
I can't take another day 
without you next to me,
you're the love of my love 
and my sweetest memories.

So I lay here all alone
with no one and no where to go, 
till I take that step to the clouds
and feel your arms around. 






The Rise of Autumn

The stillness of the hollow,
dressed in colors of fall,
stands to hold the memories
both heart and soul enthralled.

Wind through the mountains,
the stars up in the sky and
as the moon shines brightly
I feel you by myside.

Forever love
that is what you are to me
a special something
that feels like the first
of spring.






From My Bedroom

I gazed at the heavens,
the stars were shining bright
and that very moment 
I knew you were with me 
tonight.

No time like the present 
to tell you how I feel,
as I whispered words 
of love for all the world
to hear.

No mountains between us, 
no sadness or despair
as I close my eyes and
envision two hearts that
dared to share.

I travel without ever leaving 
this bedroom of mine ,
with my head upon the pillow
and in your arms I lie. 

Love is so empowering
like magic in the wind
it gathers momentum 
as from the heavens 
it begins.

I wanna believe
that our love is true
I wanna hold you forever
and have you hold me too.





I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me
In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change

Stars Of Night

It is just for you and I,
that sparkle in the sky,
the star that we see
reflects what love can
bring.

It touches from afar
no matter where we are
to once more unite our
souls into an everlasting
hold.

It is the way I feel
that no one can steal,
empowering my heart
like a motor that gets
its start.

Each beat is for you alone
no matter where you go,
for you stood by me when
everyone else avoided
my plea.

It is a song of sweet
our very own melody
concert of heart and soul
rhythmically unfolds.

This night is yours and mine
and it's written for all time,
eternal in its own way
a dream lovers day.

Look once more to the sky
the bright star to your right,
that is my love for you
that shines thru gray and blue.

Tweet

Her morning song
she sang so sweet
and a bit confused
she thinks it spring.

Song of happiness
and sounds of love,
her wings a flutter
she is moving on.

Little song bird
singing sweet
migrating south
with one last tweet.




Heavens

The chill went through my body
as the emotions took me by surprise,
from the first I opened my heart
and found that is where you lie.

Unequivocal such love
that can take the oceans pride
drain it to the sands and find
the gift of soul and mind.

For I have soared the heavens
to dance with you each night
and I awake each morning
with your love the guiding light.

... living on a dream.

There is love in the moment,
when two hearts stop to share,
there is joy in knowing that
you continue to care.

There is happiness in dreams
that bring you next to me and
sometimes there is sadness
when I wake to find you are
not here with me.

~
I am living on a dream
wishing and wanting,
I am living on a  dream
knowing you are there
waiting for me.

Sunlight through the hollow,
flowers bare their last bloom
and the end of the harvest
knows it will all end to soon.

~



Wake UP

Here in the hollow
spinning all around,
heart beating faster
as the rain is falling
down.

Leaves of Autumn
shades in every hue,
celebration or sorrow
as memories cast an
ache that reminds me
of you.

Here in the hollow
spinning all around,
heart beating faster
as the rain is falling
down.

The sun has yet to rise,
the morning dark and gray
and as I think of you
the sunshine finds its way.

Autumn Breeze

Just me and the dream
with the whip-poor-will bird,
completely out of sight
yet its song can be heard.

The moonlight glowing,
the wind through the trees
and my heart takes to
dancing with the autumn
breeze.

Here in the moment,
you are by my side
as I open my heart
and close my eyes.

Just me and the dream
withe whip-poor-will bird,
completely out of sight
yet its song can be heard.





Spoken by the heart

Spoken by the heart,
repeated by the soul,
words of love of
a story still untold.

Over and over,
these words for you,
if only you knew
how much I truly
love you.

Spoken by the heart,
repeated by the soul,
words of love of  a
story still untold.

One day or a thousand
it matters little to me
as long as you know
that you're my summer
through spring.

Spoken by the heart,
repeated by the soul,
words of love of
story still untold.

My happily ever after,
in your arms I'll lay.
the happiness to share
in our own way.


Sunday, October 09, 2016

...capture all the dreams.

What is this I am feeling?
You must already know,
when the sun sets and rises
our love continues to grow.

There is no end to the magic
the joy that's in my heart
from the day you said hello
my emotions were off the chart.

There is no explaining
just what you mean to me,
no amount of written words
can capture all the dreams.

What is this I am feeling?
You must already know,
forever is my promise
that I'll never let you go.



Loving You





Loving you is the magic of souls...

~




Tea and honey and 
thoughts of you...simple pleasures. 




Treasure the moment
moon lit nights, 
forever stars
and loving 
you.

~



Fate brings you to the door
but it's up to us to open it.



~


The whole of a being 
is measured by their ability to love. 

~


Life is like a baseball game,
with occasional curve ball. 

~



Listen to the music
the heavens play,
words of the heart
shared each day.

Promises of love
scripted by the soul,
written in the stars
in our heart we'll
hold.

Bound

My children will tell you " Music soothes the savage beast" . I have been extremely uncomfortable in my own shell and the only thing that could ease it was some soft music and a kitchen dance in your arms or is that on the clouds. Closing my eyes and pulling you near.

Music to calm my soul
and bring you near to me,
I close my eyes and hold
you tight in a surreal like
dream.

My body begins swaying
as my feet lift off the ground
and like a fairytale story
from the heavens you came
down.

Relaxed as I can be,
I am in your arms right now
and that is the magic of love
and how our souls were bound.

~♥Everytime We Touch lyrics (Acoustic)♥~

Sings...Tell Me Heart

Tell me heart, tell me heart,
tell me true, why the feelings
from inside make the skies
so bright and blue?

The love that I feel
grows stronger each day
in a way that brings happiness
to replace all shades of gray.

Tell me heart, tell me heart,
tell me true of the music
of souls that only true
lovers can dance to.

I closed my eyes and
I saw with my heart
and the answer appeared
when I felt you in my
arms.



Monday, October 03, 2016

Heart

I crossed my arms before me
and I held you in my mind
as the kitchen disappeared
and a dance floor was left
behind.

It might have been a dream
or the magic of the heart
but as I started dancing
I held you from afar.

~



Song in my Heart

I almost forgot the words
to the song in my heart,
to dance with you my love
underneath the shining stars.

But there was something special
that I know must be true,
as you walked in my darling
and I fell in love with you.

I almost forgot the words
to the song in my heart,
to dance with you my love
underneath the shining stars.

The clouds of gray vanished
and it was to my surprise
that I found myself smiling
and a calm eased my mind.

I almost forgot the words
to the song in my heart
to dance with you my love
underneath the shining stars.

My feet began moving
as if they were off the ground
and I knew at that moment
I was once more in the clouds.



Song...

The passing of a season
documents all right and wrong,
reminding us of time and
the waiting of your arms.

Tears have fallen
as I don't feel so strong,
wobbling inside myself
knowing where I belong.

Summer birds migrating
and winter birds in song,
prepare to challenge
the winter dark and long .

Reaching for the sunshine
to dance my day with you
and knowing that you love me
will surely see me through.




Mere Thoughts

Up before the sunrise,
as dark as it could be,
my mind began wandering
of what tomorrow will bring.

Stories still unwritten
and pages of dreams
directed by the heart
stored to the memory.



Monday, September 19, 2016

Rain

Rain will fall and
clouds will pass by
but there'll be no sunshine
till you're by my side.

Tears will fall and
the ache will remain
until your arms
forever I'll lay.

Raindrops

I raced away to memories,
childhood ones at that,
feet splashing in the puddles
with raindrops on our back.

Days where nothing mattered
and nights that hell command,
summoned up the images
of some God-forsaken plan.

I raced away to memories,
childhood ones at that
hiding tears with laughter
in some heaven and earth pact.

Harvest

Love is like a golden harvest, 

with gifts of happiness and joy. 


 The harvest season
 it quickly nears
 with moments of love
 we stopped to share.

Deep my heart
a part of my soul,
when you reached out
and took a hold.




Bright summer morning,
oh what can I do?
I need his laughter and
his love so true.

Shining down from the heavens,
gives life to the day
as your love in my heart
glows in a special way.

Memory

I am taking on a dream,
conjuring up skies of blue
walking on a wish to
be there next to you.

Humming a song
lyrics don't mean a thing
for nothing need be written
all is secured to memory.

I can feel the magic
and the warmth of your love,
as if we were truly meeting on
those puffy clouds above.

Each Breath..

Hello morning dove,
how are you ?
Outside my window
she responded with a coo.

The sun has risen
and the skies are blue,
as I drift to happiness
it's always with you.

Hello morning dove,
how are you?
Outside my window
she responded with a coo.

~
There is no doubt I love music, from folk music to soft jazz, oldies to blues. One friend of the family Tom, liked sitting by the bond fire and singing his Irish songs. The children would delight in his merry way of reaching out and spreading a little happiness. Up beat and sweet with song the Irish melody comes to mind.

Sings >Flowers in the garden,
butterflies are there too
as I stumbled on a dream
and landed beside you.

My first thought each morn
as I carry you through the day
and I keep you in my heart so
you'll be each breath I take.

Flowers in the garden
butterflies are there too,
as I stumbled on a dream
and landed beside you.

I feel so amazing with the
tenderness of your touch,
locked in your embrace
I love you so very much.

Flowers in the garden,
butterflies are there too,
as I stumbled on a dream
and landed next to you.

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.
