Indulging my most lucid daydreams

Unfolds

 Full of thoughts and passion
 emotions that forever blaze
 intrigues this mortal flesh
 to embrace the path of fate.

The earth and heavens united
no partition by the clouds
as I reached into the darkness
and your love is what I found.

The place within my being
where only you may go
is pressed within my heart
and through my soul it flows.

There is no separating
or dividing of our souls
bonded with forever love
the eternal path unfolds.
~

I rejoice in the story telling
of a story from long ago
where two souls came together
and have yet to let go.

Creation of paradise
upon the clouds they meet
as they dance in the heavens
knowing they are complete.

No longer existing
but living within the dream,
their hearts fused as one
like stars began to beam.

Happiness and contentment
can be seen upon their face
the twinkle in their eyes
and a smile has taken place.

Unlike any other love
this love was meant to be
as it truly moved a mountain
and set two souls free.

Forever is their motto
from earth to starry night,
you can see it all around
as it gave to the darkness light.

love of my life

Wake up every morning
kiss good morning sweet,
beyond all the dreams
to what we believe.

Feel all the energy
beyond what is surreal
touching with the heart
to you I seriously appeal.

The scene in stillness
is a canvas of life
natures finest painting
added you and I.

Song birds at my window,
butterflies in flight
and then there is you with me
the love of my life.





Rewrite Eternity

This must be an old age sleep schedule. Nap in the day and can't sleep at night. It is a very quiet evening , I can't believe the tree frogs and crickets finally went to sleep. Well nothing better than documenting love.  Fingers to the keyboard and my heart to yours.


Passion rules the keyboard
your love empowers the heart
to stir the strong emotions
under the nightly stars.

To feed the emptiness
upon awakening of the soul,
as I find sweet pleasure
in the days and nights that unfold.

The moon has suddenly drifted
no longer is it overhead
and the morning not far off
finds me daydreaming in bed

My hopes and joys have surfaced
bringing a sparkle to my eyes
revealing all the happiness
that I have kept hidden inside.

The tree frogs no longer singing
the crickets finally asleep and
in the silence of the night
the chatter of love speaks.

No sorrow or darkness
the light of love appears
guides us to the heavens
where we again begin to share.

Suited to such magic
the mountains disappeared
as we are as close as two can be
soul united by thin air.

My heart felt the embrace
I blushed as if by sun
had graced my rosy cheeks
with a touch of your love.

I relinquished all power
to the heavens above
if only our earthly body
joined our spirit as one.

The images were enchanting
like a dream while awake
as I gazed into the darkness
and trembled like a quake

Partner throughout life
friend in every way,
over mountains and rivers
day after day.

Always in my heart
like the tiny drops of rain
an infusion of desire
running through my veins.

I quivered at mere mention
as if gazing upon your face
through the eyes your soul
were the images I embraced.

This gift without question
undeniably meant to be
as our souls came together
to rewrite eternity.

I do...I do love you


Sings>
Sad and lonely
what else can I do,
I spent my day dreaming
to be there with you.

From the first of morn
till the stars ruled the night,
my thoughts were of you
as my soul took flight.

La da da , la da da I love you
La da da , la da da yes I do,
you are the song in my heart
that promises we will never
part.

Sad and lonely
what else can I do,
I spent my day dreaming
to be there with you.

To feel your warm embrace
as my heart continues to race,
that is what I dream of you
on a blanket under the summer
blue.

Staring into your eyes and
feeling the magic by surprise,
one moment, a day or an hour
creates a blaze out of love's power.




...you too.

 There are memories and then there are memories... I love you too.


Sweet thoughts 
of you and I
beyond the mountains
rivers and sky

Can't imagine you not here
or a day that we can't share,
without you a void rules 
so I tenderly keep hold. 

You are ever close to me
like the touch of summer breeze,
crazy as it may sound 
the smiles replace the frowns.

No control of these dreams
they are always of you and me, 
embraced in happiness 
snuggled under blankets. 

I couldn't be more in love
as the years made us one, 
morning thru the night 
you are the center of my life.

Angel


Speak of Angels
I have my own,
watching over like
ducks in a row.

It's not magic
no trick to play,
my heart was yours
from the first day.

Bonding of souls
is a little bit cliche
but that is what happened
in a factual way.

Distance faded
no heavens to part
because you are here
right deep in my heart.




Sings to you...

I said, hello and you holla'd back 
as my heart beat super fast , 
I knew something come over me
as I felt your love most certainly.

It's nature  to always want more 
but I know you're the one I adore 
and nothing is ever missing 
as you're always here with me.

I said, hello and you holla'd back 
as my heart beat super fast , 
I knew something come over me
as I felt your love most certainly.

I know when you tell me 
how much you love me so, 
that I've got the earth and heavens
celebrating as our love grows.

I said, hello and you holla'd back 
as my heart beat super fast , 
I knew something come over me
as I felt your love most certainly.

I'm gonna sing, sing out loud 
I'm gonna sing, sing out loud,
to the music of the heart 
where each beat of love got
its start. 

I said, hello and you holla'd back 
as my heart beat super fast , 
I knew something come over me
as I felt your love most certainly.

Knowing that you care and 
that we have our life to share, 
while showers from the clouds 
sprinkle happiness  all around.

 I said, hello and you holla'd back 
as my heart beat super fast , 
I knew something come over me
as I felt your love most certainly.





Silliness Dreams

I have got this whale
beached on my sofa,
trained to eat out of
a dog food bowl.

But on another note
I touched and held you
in an amazing way that
felt like a dream come
true.

I can't stop laughing
as I see the sunrise
when the sky is gray
and I'm loving you.

Define the moment
of complete silliness
in an odd dream where
there is so much to do.

The whale is challenge,
the steps what I can do,
seeing you makes it all better
as the magic of love comes
through.

Time rules the day
of how quickly it will pass
and through it is a reminder
you and I will have the last
laugh.

Me and You

It was in 2005 that I started blogging and wrote my first post "Through Rose Colored Glasses". While driving the road today my sunglasses had a rose pink tint and I laughed to myself as I thought of the first time I wrote, "through rose colored glasses." It might seem a bit naive especially in the state of world at the moment but there is so much joy and beauty that it takes back stage to the negativity. But all in all I can still see and feel the goodness in the world.

The grass is much greener
and the sky is so very blue
as the clouds up above
call out to me and you.

Picturesque the scenery
in the middle of the day ,
where the bluebirds flit
as the summer trees sway.

This is the perfect moment
and special for you and I
as I gaze upon the heavens
part the earth through the
mind.

The grass is much greener
and the sky is so very blue
as the clouds up above
call out to me and you.

Good Night

Goodnight my love,
goodnight my sweet,
rest here peacefully
and meet me in a
dream.

Goodnight my love
goodnight my sweet,
I've traced from memory
and that is what I hold
to keep you close to me

Entwined


When simple is a treasure
it's more than you can measure.
When one takes the time to care
you know it's love you share.

From an early morning sunrise
to a cup of tea at lunch time,
the beauty that you'll find
is in two hearts entwined.








Clearly

The fog slowly lifted
and I could clearly see
like the trees in the hollow
something are meant to be.

Like sunshine and blue skies
sweet laughter and joy
and the warmth of your love
that I so dearly enjoy.

~

Every moment is a poem
and every poem your love,
so as I write for all to see
I soar to the clouds above.

I take with me the happiness
and the gentleness of touch
enclosed in all the memories
that mean so very much.







Magic

The night into day
seems like magic
as the stars in the
sky fade away.

I start my morning
like I usually do
as I wake up from
my dreams of you.

This is our love
as love would have it,
conquers the distance
with memories.

All I have to do
my sweet darling
is close my eyes and
I'm there with  you.

Songbirds are singing,
the joyous sound fills the air
love is what you'll hear through
the heart a gratitude in prayer.

The night into day
seems like magic
as the stars in the
sky fade away.

...they call it love.

Go on say it and
yell it out loud,
tell it to the world
and tell it to the crowds.

Whisper to the stars
and whisper to the moon,
whispers of love that
would make anyone swoon.

~
Blah, blah , blah ...I love you.
Blah , blah , blah ...it's true
Blah ,blah, blah...I love you.


~


Watching the moon
outside my window,
as it finds its way
through the clouds.

Moonbeams of light
guide me to you,
on a path of love
under the heavens blue.

The smile founds its way
as I envisioned me with you
and felt your arms around me
in a way that lovers do.

Watching the moon
outside my window,
as it finds its way
through the clouds.
~

You can't fake love
as your love has a hold on me,
from that very first hello
I woke up in a sweet dream.

You can't stop the heart from feeling
it has a mind of its own,
from that very first hello
the love continued to grow.

~
Somethings are special
and magical as can be,
if you think about it
you are right here with me.

Here in my heart
from day one,
next to my soul
bonded by love.

Somethings are special
and magical as can be,
if you think about it
you are right here with me.



...times ten.

There are stars in the sky
and a moon shining bright
they're over both you and I
each and every night.

World away and
a thought closer each day,
as I wake up in the morn
before the sunlight finds
its way.

~
La, la, la no words
are needed to say,
how much I love you
each and everyday.

La, la, la no words
to write or sing  to say
how much I love you
each and everyday.

~

Emotion filled tears
rolling down my cheek,
when I think of you
in my morning daydream.

Tears of happiness
sometimes sadness too,
as the script of life was
written before me and you.

I wish I held the pen
and the pages were blank,
we'd shared a lifetime
multiplied times ten.




So Close

Millions of Miles
or a glass pane,
so close and so far
each and everyday.

Each beat of my heart
and every breath I take
comes with a reminder
of the love that comes
our way.

Waking in the morning
just to give you a kiss
what seems quite simple
is to me a state of bliss.

Millions of miles
or a glass pane,
so close and so far
each and everyday.

Carry on..

Carry on in the wind
and carry on through life,
this love I have for you
is not a roll of the dice.

It's magical and wonderful
as beautiful as can be
for it takes the darkness
and brings sunlight to me.

Carry on in the wind
and carry on through life,
this love I have for you
is not a roll of the dice.

Nothing has meaning
there is emptiness abound,
until you came into my life
and lifted me from the ground.

High upon the clouds
where lovers can be seen,
dancing in the night
in every midnight dream.

Each moment is quite special
in this you must know
that wherever we travel
with us the love goes.




Forevermore

Fingers to the keyboard
and my heart to yours, 
the words of love written
are a simple forevermore. 

We are a passage of time
and a chapter in the books, 
the stars in the heavens 
and a babbling brook. 

Look all around 
no matter what you see, 
it will all have a semblance
of the sweetest memories. 

The embrace of two 
in the reuniting of souls, 
as we must have been here
where dreams unfold. 




da da da, da da da ....

I fell asleep after work to wake up at 2 am. For a change my mind is semi-blank. I am not sure but that may be a good thing. There is such silence and just a slight breeze through the window. It is cooler than the typical early August and that comes with mixed feelings as it reminds us another season will soon be passing.

There is a chill in the air
and a silence unfolds and
as still the passing moment
I find a sentiment of gold.

Treasure your friendship
the memories we make
the touching of heart
in our own special way.

~

Wake up to a hum
a da da da dum ,
I wake up with
sweet thoughts of you..

Ah ha moment

Like the song " I know I'll never love this way again/" I was asked all kinds of questions when I was at the farmers market. I don't usually open up about myself , my experience and the love of my life. Liz is our market manager, she is young , full of life and a beautiful spirit with way to many questions. The weather was near perfect and as I sat next to her sharing the moment I felt an excitement and calm at the same time. You deserve so much more, why this and why that ? Question after question. I had some answers for her  and she responded " you love your children!" Though I am not sure they will ever understand or get the whole sacrifice thing.
I have been in an odd mood these last few days so much running through my mind. I am not quite sure what it all means. Can't change yesterday , today is on the move and we have to wait till tomorrow to see what it brings.

No greater love,
no tears or sorrow,
I have the dream of
each and every
tomorrow.

Follow your heart,
listen close and
you'll find happiness
blooming like a roe.

No greater love,
no tears or sorrow,
I have the dream of
each and every
tomorrow.

~

There is that ah ha moment ...when you just know. That is how I feel when I think of me in your arms. ...

I'll Never Love This Way Again - Dionne Warwick ( w/ lyrics )

The Answer Book

I always thought it would be great if there was an answer book for life. Chapters that revealed the alternatives and possible outcomes.  It seems easy to hold on to the past good or bad and much more difficult to know the future.
I have always been a bit of weather connected. Thriving on sunshine and melancholy when it rains. Maybe because rain means you are usually stuck indoors and that gives a person way to much time to think. I have scanned chapters of my life, laughed a little and cried a little and I actually feel a bit angry with my own decision making. But you can't change the "what is"I call it a scream in silence day.

It's not a want or need
our hearts were meant to be,
like sunshine after the rain
you bring the warmth to me.

You are the joy of life
and feels so awfully right,
to share in your day
makes the sadness go away.

It's not a want or need
our hearts were meant to be,
like sunshine after the rain
you bring the warmth to me.

and I love you so!

You know how you freeze a moment. I was standing at the sliding glass doors, the willow overgrown and the ducks quacking. It was at this moment that I felt so close to you and yet somehow separated by the pane of glass. The aftermath of holding emotions in over the years resorts in a release of tears that somehow helps the soul make it through another day. It reminded me of the poem I had written so many years back " The weight of a tear" .  So much has had happened over the years, a blend of good and bad that we shared from a distance. Death of families members, adventures in business, sharing of the heart and the embracing of the soul. The memories flood in a way that becomes a way of cleansing as if the moments in time grew wings like a butterfly and took to the heavens.
Music has a way of triggering a memory or the emotions that come with memories. Sometimes it feels like yesterday and other times like a million light years away.  There is irony when you listen to a song and you relate knowing a zillion other people relate. Impossible for anyone to experience the exact trials and triumphs. That statement is indeed true that no two loves , romance memories are identical even though they can take a song and make it their own.
Going for a ride into the mountains today...and taking you with me. In my heart, side by side with my soul as we embrace the moment..".and I love you so. "

And I Love You So with Lyrics - Don McLean

Wishing

Wishing you were here
if only to say good night,
sweet kisses to your lips
while holding you tight.

I'm gonna start dreaming
as the darkness nears,
that is where I'll find you
for a moment to share.

Wishing you were here
if only to say good night,
sweet kisses to your lips
while holding you tight.

When I wake up
it's you that is on my mind
as it triggers the emotions
that lift me to the clouds.

Wishing you were here
if only to say good night,
sweet kisses to your lips
while holding you tight.

I look to the heavens
the stars shine so bright
and at this moment
I'm in your arms tonight.

Wishing you were here
if only to say good night,
sweet kiss to your lips
while holding you tight.

Now

If I haven't told you,
I'm telling you now,
my heart was yours
from the first smile.

The gift is eternal
it's a part of me
whether I'm awake
or deep in a dream.

I carry it with me
like a warm memory,
I carry your love
quite perfectly.

If I haven't told you,
I'm telling you now,
my heart was yours
from the very first
smile.

Summer Sunflowers

Summer sunflowers
and blue skies above
sweet thoughts of you
in a treasure we call
love.

Warms my spirit
sets my soul afire,
magic to the moment
and joy to the hour.

Summer sunflowers
and blue skies above
sweet thoughts of you
in a treasure we call
love.

Images that heighten
the feelings of desire,
simply to hold you
gives to love the power.

Summer sunflowers
and blue skies above
sweet thoughts of you
in a treasure we call
love.

Open up your heart
and there you'll see,
that you and I were
always meant to be.







Is there any other words
that have not been written
or any other song that
has not been sung?

Is there any other way
to make you feel
the way I'm feeling
each and everyday?
