Le Poeme di Amore

(and some others)

Last Dance

There was a time I had it all

I thought my options would never fall

I knew that you were there for me

But I was blind and could not see

I shouldíve known right from the start

I shouldíve listened to my heart

But I missed my time; I missed my chance

I heard the song but missed the dance

So should I sit alone and cry

And in my grief just wonder why

No, Iíll take that grief and send it down

Send it burning to the ground

Nowís the time I shall begin

Iíll start over and try again

Iíll work my way back up to you

Just for the chance to start anew

This time though Iíll make it last

I wonít rush in but Iíll move fast

I wonít miss this chance again

It wonít be the same as it was then

As I know that I must do

Anything to be with you

So just give me one more chance

Please say youíll let me have this dance

Heaven Sent

Your eyes- they are so pretty

As they dance within the light

And your hair flows oh so lovely

As it glistens in the night

With the beauty of an angel

And the passion of a queen

You make the world stand still

And admire what itís seen

Your voice like cherubs singing

Touches the souls of all its known

And still so sweet and caring

Your compassion stands alone

I know I will always cherish

Every day I spend with you

You fulfilled my every wish

Youíve made my dreams come true

Love

My world seems to be filled with fears

I am in a constant state of unrest

But thee come and allay my tears

Thou art the cause of my happiness

Thus when I gaze into the majestic skies

I see a light divine

For I can see into your eyes

And tell that you are mine

So this is not a speculation

My statements are quite true

Thou art my soul and inspiration

I give my heart to you

Thus I know I have an undying love for thee

And need you by my side for all eternity

Missing You

My heart is now empty where you used to be

Leaving a dark hole deep inside of me

I tried to get you out of my mind but you are still there

I never could have realized just how much I care

I miss holding you close on those cool, breezy days

I miss hearing you tell me that you wished that I would stay

I miss hearing you say you love me as you looked into my eyes

And I miss just being with you more than you can realize

But now all I have is pictures, deep inside my head

I relive all our memories as I lie awake in bed

At first I thought after some time I would get over you

But nothing seems to make it better; I donít know what to do

I wish I could go back it time to the way it was back then

For I would do anything to have you back again

Eternal Love

Although things come and go

With the ending of a day

One thing I surely know

Is that my love for you shall stay

The world will surely terminate

But then eternity will start

So despite a worldly fate

You will still be in my heart

For if the world should cease

Mortal life shall follow too

But Iíll maintain my peace

As my heart is sealed with you

So whether it is here

Or in the kingdom up above

I shall hold you dear

And give you all my love

For when I say ďI love youĒ

Itís for eternity

Because when love is true

It transcends mortality

So it matters not what the Earth may do

For when in Godís kingdom we reside

I will always love you

And remain right by your side

Intrigue

When I saw your face my heart skipped a beat

Even with just one quick glance you swept me off my feet

Never had I seen such vivacious, stunning eyes

They lured me in with intrigue and left me mesmerized

Your beauty was captivating like a vivid work of art

And before I knew what happened you had stolen my heart

Then I saw your smile glisten like an angel in the sun

And in that fleeting moment I could tell you were the one

For never had such lavish beauty been present in this world

And by your divine radiance I quickly was enthralled

Then dancing quickly like a fire you suddenly dashed away

Leaving me with a memory that I cherish to this day

Everlasting Love

When I close my eyes

at the end of every night

I begin to visualize

A very wondrous sight

For you are there with me

And I know we'll never part

For it's obvious to see

You're always in my heart

So despite the situation

Or whatever we may do

My heart has one vocation

To give my love to you

My Love and Salvation

Clouds move in and cover the sky

The gods begin to weep

Then I stop to turn around as my obstacles are steep

But just as all seems dark and down, Your voice rings through the air

Intently saying the precious words of just how much you care

All of a sudden the clouds do part and birds begin to sing

The rain has stopped; the mountain gone; peace does gently ring

That is why I now must dare

To display my love and heartfelt care

As I Watch My Love

She doesnít see the stars -from the angels overhead

She doesnít hear their song -while sheís nestled in her bed

But I hear them gently calling, and I listen to what they say

From the heavens, they have come -to show me the way

The clouds scatter, then transcend with a pure light

And I know at this moment that it must be right

I can see her -she sleeps peaceful in my eyes

And I cherish her more than she could ever realize

Then I pause for a moment to make sure she is real

When she wakes I will hold her and tell her how I feel

Cause I know that I love her and this feeling wonít subside

And I hope when its over she will stay right by my side

Yet I know, itís not over -in fact itís just begun

And I look at my baby and can tell that sheís the one

So I hope I can keep her safe from any harms

For now and forever she'll be safe within my arms

Always on My Mind

With a sparkle in her eyes

And the magic of her touch

It was easy to realize

Why I missed her oh so much

She is so sweet

She is so kind

With her my life's complete

She is always on my mind

So what should I do-

To tell her all of this

Except to say I love you

And give you a sweet kiss

POEMS FROM MY BOOK

Not yet formatted

My eyes they cry a salty tear
For she's gone away
Ah, my love's no longer here
Alas, she could not stay
Now my heart bleeds from this pain
As I often wonder how
My lofty dreams have all been slain
My world is shattered now
But though I'm in this misery
Regrets- I have had none
For though in this life she's gone from me
I know she was the one
And when at night I close my eyes
My heart is filled with bliss
A majestic light falls from the skies
And I feel my angel's kiss

I miei occhi piangono una lacrima salita
Perché lei è andata via
Ah, la mia innamorata non è qui
Ahimè, lei non potè rimanere
Ora, il mio cuore dissanguina da questo dolore
E spesso mi meraviglio come
I miei sogni alti si sono morti
Adesso il mio mondo è distrutto
Ma anche se mi sento avvilito
I pentimenti?- Sono niente
Perché da questo mondo lei è partita
Ma ancora so che lei è stata la donna per me
E quando mi chiudo gli occhi
Il mio cuore è pieno d' estasi
Una luce maestosa cade dal cielo
E mi sento il baccio del mio angelo

The sun it casts a luminous ray
To enlighten all the land
But in one place it seems to stay
That spot is where you stand
It complements your incandescent glow
As it shines on you so bright
Your beauty does so clearly show
In this pure white light
Then golden embers settle fast
And add to your allure
Your heart of gold is firmly cast
With compassion oh so pure
Your elegance is so divine
As your love is shown in all you do
Oh how I wish that you were mine
My heart beats just for you



The Feminine Mystique
I clean the windows and scrub the floor
I can't take this monotony anymore
Never am I quite at peace
Will this incessant housework ever cease
I went to college and used my mind
But I soon was sure to find
That a woman's place was in the home
By herself and all alone
And my life did not implore
The use of thinking anymore
At first this was a wondrous thing
As I eagerly slid on my engagement ring
I'd be free from work and strife
My calling was occupation: housewife
It all had such a grand allure
No girl could ever dream for more
The media and magazines
Influenced us naive teens
Eagerly I did seek
This enchanting feminine mystique
Men and women each had a part
Mine I could not wait to start
To have a husband just for me
And raise a happy family
I'd be as good a wife as any other
And not all haggard like my poor mother
For a woman's emancipation
Was a pigment of my mom's imagination
As she just could not see
That we were truly free
And I definitely feel
That we got the better deal
For while the men work hard all day
At home with our kids we get to stay
We remain their heart and sole
As we fill our biological role
But like my mom I now believe
That a house wife is no reprieve
A restful day, there is not such
For the housewife works oh too much
I try and try but can't employ
A rested moment or any joy
And unlike my mom's generation
I never fought for liberation
Every day is just the same
Suffering from the problem that has no name
Boredom and monotony everyday
It is never any other way
My children only laugh at me
When I cry hysterically
And no one seems to have the time
To share what is on their mind
My husband does not rush to me
Open armed and joyously
My children say I smother them
But I still remember when
They were young and rushed to me
Out of more than sheer pity
There is only one thing to do
Have another child or maybe two
Once again I'll be happy
When I have someone who needs me
Alas the days are passing by
And all I seem to do is cry
Yet it seems so awfully strange
How things never seem to change
I am so embarrassed about how I behave
But I feel like a domestic slave
My life is dull, I'm not inspired
And I always feel so tired
At first I thought it was just me
So I sought help professionally
The doctor tried his very best
But eventually confessed
There was no problem he could see
Except my role in society
And I would have to accept things
As they wouldn't be changing
He gave me some pills to get me through
But still I felt so sad and blue
And this problem merely hovered
But now I have discovered
That it is not just my affliction
But actually quite a common condition
The other wives I've spoken to
Feel the same way that I do
They feel the same monotony
That I thought was unique to me
The need for some sense in their life
More than just a common housewife
They don't feel appreciated
But simply feel that they're berated
And though they hold their family dear
They envy those that have careers
And have a chance to use their mind
For more than interior design
That have some goal and motivation
A sense of daily inspiration
Yet now, alas, they feel guilty
And refuse to betray their family
For they will not deprive
Their children of a chance to thrive
For they were taught in sociology
The importance of a family
'With the mom at work it will fall apart
Do you want to break your child's heart
And though at times it does not seem
You and your husband are a team
And that the salad that you toss
At the dinner party for the boss
Could be just the right potion
To earn your husband that promotion
Don't believe me read McCall's
And in there you'll find it all
You are proud you're not a man
You should rejoice that you're a woman
Every woman wishes they could be
Part of a successful family
Housewives do not have it tough
The working woman has it rough
They are forced to act like men
But you are truly feminine
Luckily you're not like them
Pretending to be masculine
And just when you were feeling sad
Look at the new appliance ad!
And manufacturers do implore
You to visit them at the local store
This new item is heaven sent
Come on down and see what's meant
By the congeniality
And extra hospitality
Our store is ever so serene
And we'll treat you like a queen
And though this may seem awfully funny
Don't forget to bring your money
If you don't come what shall we do
Our advertising is aimed toward you'
So we must suffer for their gain
And endure this nagging pain
Remembering our lessons from school
Not to be a working fool
But go out on a bunch of dates
In hope of finding that perfect mate
And we could not find our dreaded fate
Until, alas, it was too late
We thought the men had it poorly
He'd have to work just to support me
Always having to go roam
Ever so far away from home
Never would he be happy
Having to leave his family
I would get to stay home all day
And with my children joyously play
But no longer do I seek
This horrid feminine mystique
My mind was altered in my youth
With this strange aversive truth
And I suffer the constant bane
Of the problem that has no name
The magazines led me astray
And the advertisers tried to sway
Me to stay at home throughout my life
As nothing more than a housewife.

“Love”
My World seems to be filled with fears
I am in a constant state of unrest
But thee come and allay my tears
Thou art the cause of my happiness
Thus when I gaze into the majestic skies
I see a light divine
For I can see into your eyes
And tell that you are mine
So this is not a speculation
My statements are quite true
Thou art my soul and inspiration
I give my heart to you
So I know I have an undying love for thee
And need you by my side for all eternity

When I was younger, I didn't know what to do
To recapture summer's bliss
But now that I have found you
I find love in your kiss
I can see it in your eyes
With which you stir such burning passion
Like the diamond velvet skies
With such elegant compassion
Your words flow smooth like wine
Your skin soft as a rose
I'm so glad that you are mine
My love for you just grows

A rose has beauty
O' so sweet
But when compared to thee
It cannot compete
For despite the eyes' attraction
To this wondrous sight
My heart's instant reaction
Is that the view is merely trite
Roses come by the dozen
And all do seem the same
They have no beauty from within
A sight without a name
So my heart does wander
From this simple flower    
But need not deeply ponder
To find its love divine
Which is why I ask of you
If you would be mine

“Eternal Love”
Although things come and go
With the ending of a day
One thing I surely know
Is that my love for you shall stay
The world will surely terminate
But then eternity will start
So despite a worldly fate
You will still be in my heart
For if the world should cease
Mortal life shall follow too
But I'll maintain my peace
As my heart is sealed with you
So whether it is here
Or in the kingdom up above
I shall hold you dear
And give you all my love
For when I say “I love you”
It's for eternity
Because when love is true
It transcends mortality
So it matters not what the Earth may do
For when in God's kingdom we reside
I will always love you
And remain right by your side

“Everlasting Love”
When I close my eyes
At the end of every night
I begin to visualize
A very wondrous sight
For you are there with me
And I know we'll never part
For it's obvious to see
You're always in my heart
So despite the situation
Or whatever we may do
My heart has one vocation
To give my love to you

“Last Dance”
There was a time I had it all
I thought my options would never fall
I knew that you were there for me
But I was blind and could not see
I should've known right from the start
I should've listened to my heart
But I missed my time; I missed my chance
I heard the song but missed the dance
So should I sit alone and cry
And in my grief just wonder why
No, I'll take that grief and send it down
Send it burning to the ground
Now's the time I shall begin
I'll start over and try again
I'll work my way back up to you
Just for the chance to start anew
This time though I'll make it last
I won't rush in but I'll move fast
I won't miss this chance again
It won't be the same as it was then
As I know that I must do
Anything to be with you
So just give me one more chance
Please say you'll let me have this dance  

As I gaze through the celestial space
I envision your lovely face
And I can see into your eyes
When I stare through these dark skies
Oh I can see a lovely scene
And my thoughts just then convene
That I will be there through your life
Staying through all the joys and strife
And what this scene does help to aid
Is that my love for you shall never fade
So I would like you to know
That my dear I love thee so
And I promise I shall stay
Loving you as I do today
This vision shows me as a sign
That our lives will stay intertwined
I see the moments that we'll share
And the care is always there
You shall always be
Very special to me
Together we'll remain happy
So I express my love for thee

When I gaze through the skies
It tears my heart asunder
As I can't help but wonder
Why I received such a wondrous prize
Some people's joy confides
In collecting their worldly treasure
But the only true pleasure
Is where one's heart resides
I did not know what to do
As through the options I drifted
But now my worries are lifted
Because I have found you
Never could a feeling
Be so wonderfully complete
Except for by someone who's so sweet
That my heart resounds in peeling
There is nothing else to do
Except to humbly confess
So I now profess
That the one I love is you
It is simple to realize
From this explanation
That my love's proclamation
Is that you are this wondrous prize
So knowing this is true
I proclaim it to thee
That I'll always love you
For all eternity!            

I have been thinking
About what to do
For I have this feeling
Of such love for you
So listen my darling
Listen to me
I didn't just run in
But moved carefully
I heard you whisper
Whisper to me
I can't wait no longer
O' can't you see
Oh how I need you
I call your name
So what shall you do
Do you feel the same?
  1. I have been falling
Just like before
But still I keep calling
Can't wait no more
And just then I hear you
Speak soft to me
You say what I must do
Is wait patiently
But still I do love you
I'm in such pain
But if this I must go through
Then I'll remain
My heart won't stray far
Ever again
Just say when you are
Ready to begin
Oh how I need to
To feel your touch
Oh girl I miss you
Miss you so much
My love's a fire
That you did start
And it just burns brighter
Within my heart
So it shines so brightly
Just like a star
And so it leads me
To where you are
And my love will help me
Fight any fight
Until I can be
Holding you tight
I know what I'll do
To show you this
My love I'll show you
Within my kiss
Often I wonder
I wonder why
It tears me asunder
I start to cry
But your face is simply
All I can see
I need you with me
Why can't that be?
Your eyes they sparkle
Just like the sea
And your love does fulfill
That void in me
The sunlight does catch you
You shine so bright
And in all that you do
I find delight
So close your eyes baby
This starry night
And then you will see me
Holding you tight
Your skin is so soft that
I must confess
You're all I can look at
Feel my caress
Whispering willows
They sing your name
The sleepy hollows
Dream of the same
You are an angel
From up above
You are so special
The one I love
O' and to kiss you
Is so divine
For all we have gone through
Please say your mine
And at night I pray
So close your eyes
Together we may stay
I fantasize
And if you can feel me
What shall you do?
And so now do you see
Me there with you
I hold you my darling
All through the night
And when you start shivering
I'll hold you tight
Oh can't you see this
Was meant to be
Gently we will kiss
Just you and me

The first time I saw you was a wonderful day
I wanted to talk to you but didn't know what to say
Your hair gently flowing and eyes deep as the sea
You were the most beautiful girl that I ever did see
I wanted to tell you but didn't know where to start
I couldn't express what was inside my heart
So from a distance I just cast a sigh
I loved you so much but I didn't know why
Your voice gently ringing through the crisp autumn air
The sun gently shining on your soft auburn hair
Your skin seemed so soft like the new fallen snow
Your eyes danced like fire deep into the soul
Though from a distance I admired you much
I knew that I yearned to feel your soft gentle touch
And still I can't say what my heart feels so strong
Still I do not know why it takes me so long
So though I admire the things that you do
I can't find the courage to come up to you
I wondered how long that feeling would last
But soon I found that time moves quite fast
I'm glad that I came up to you on that day
And though I did stumble, I found what to say
For if I had waited and moved too slowly
Who knows if you ever would have been with me
And all the joys I've found in you through the years
Would have been nothing except lonely tears
So when you ask me when it was that I knew
It was on that day- the first time I saw you

“Our Kind Savior”
Do not be laden down with worldly cares
When faced with a burden too heavy to bear
For surely one cannot afford
To stray away from our kind Lord
Despite the difficulty, He will lead
One to salvation in times of need
As when the world is full of tares
Our loving God will still be there
To help thee gain the strength and power
Even in one's darkest hour
For when His Commandments you obey
By your side, He'll always stay
Through His love you shall be shown
That never will you be alone
For to help the world overcome its strife
He unselfishly gave up His life
So I think this should prove to you
Just how much He is willing to do
So do not shed a tear
When struggling with obstacles and fear
But remember God's begotten Son
And there will be two instead of one
With the Savior lightening the load
And helping thee on life's most winding road
For rocky as the path may be
The Lord shall always walk with thee
Through mortal life and eternity!

You are always on my mind
You are always in my heart
You are so beautiful and kind
I have loved you from the start
Just to hear your name
In the gentle mid-day breeze
Makes my heart ignite in flames
As I get weak in the knees
To me you are so special
That it often seems
That you are an angel
A girl right from my dreams
Oh I wish I knew a way
To tell you what you do
But until that day
Just know that I love you

If you knew I loved you, I wonder what you would do
Would you think that I was crazy, or would you say you loved me too?
Right now you could be wondering about something just like this
Debating what would happen if you stole a little kiss
Perhaps I should just tell you and cast my fears away
Perhaps I'll let you hear all the things I've longed to say
Maybe you would laugh at me as I often fear
But maybe you would run to me amidst your joyous tears
Perhaps you even ask yourself very similar things
And stay awake at night in a maze of wondering
Yet resolve you are afraid of what my reaction will be
Afraid you will not like the response that you will see
So I think I'll do us both a favor and just tell you how I feel
I'll tell you that I love you and that my love is real
For if I just embarrass myself how bad will it really be?
After all it's worth the risk to have you here with me

I could get lost forever in your deep blue eyes
You are so wonderfully intriguing like an angel in disguise
Your lips are warm and inviting for a soft and tender kiss
Just to have you near me is like celestial bliss
But to be apart from you is a pain so harsh and low
A feeling like a nagging pain –a devastating blow
Yet when you are beside me, all this goes away
The feelings I get inside are beyond what words can say
You fill my heart with joy and put a smile on my face
I know that you are someone I never could replace
Your words are deep and caring and your insight is so smart
You truly mean the world to me, you have really touched my heart
I love the way you casually smile when you don't know what to say
I love the way that your life just brightens up my day
I love the care that you put into everything you do
I love so many things about you but, simply, I love you

A blanket falls upon the land
It covers all with its dark hand
When this presence is beheld
All is calm and sounds are quelled
But while there are few noises heard
One's deepest thoughts are not deterred
While everything else seems at rest
The mind still seems to function best
Fears and dreams become profound
An idle soul cannot be found
For all sit back and ruminate
About the past or toward their fate
They seem to see their new dreams born
Through the holes the light has torn
The dancing rays sparkle near
To raise one's hopes and allay one's fear
Some cling to this scattered light
For all their hopes with all their might
They hope that when the dark has past
Their newborn dreams will still hold fast
Others shun the light and run away
And in the dark their fears do stay
They fail to ever see the light
They live their lives in constant fright
If only they would open their eyes
They would have a pleasant surprise
For while the dark blanket can be one's strife
The holes of light can save one's life
The light offers all a chance
To have a heavenly starlight dance
Despite the way that things may seem
Their nightmares can all turn to dreams
So even if one strays afar
They can still follow the shining star
They'll be delivered from their plight
And awaken safe from the dark night

Oh there were times I thought of you
My heart was torn with what to do
I did not know just what to say
So I looked down, I turned away
But still my heart it beat so strong
It feels so good; it can't be wrong
So I took a breath and gently sighed
And then just let my heart decide
It said that you were right for me
No longer blind, this I could see
So I come to you right now my love
You are the one I'm thinking of
So say you'll stay and be with me
And together we can be
I'll treat you well what do you say
I know my love won't go away
So just say yes, just say you do
Because I know that I love you
And despite how things may be
I know I want you here with me

If I look at you with eyes so dear
Or glance away and shed a tear
Would you believe that it's for you
A tender love, a love so true
All I know is I need you now
I don't know why, I don't know how
But my heart won't lie to me
It gives my feelings honestly
And now it says in words so strong
That with you is where I belong
To hold you close within my arms
To shield you from the worldly harms
To be there for you in times of need
To walk behind or take the lead
Just name your wish or your demand
I'll do it all at your command
For there is nothing I wouldn't do
To have just one moment with you
Oh now you know how much I care
So just say the word and I'll be there

Oh I have to tell you something
For I have admired you a while
Your laugh's like angels singing
You have incandescent smile
Your hair flows in the air
Like silken strands of gold
Your eyes make all aware
Of the beauty they behold
Your skin is soft and pure
Like the newly fallen snow
Yet you're elegantly demure
Just like Marilyn Monroe
And beneath this wondrous beauty
I know there lies a heart of gold
And it does intrigue me
To know the compassion it must hold
So I have tried to tell you this
And though I know I've tried my best
Words could never do you justice
In describing the beauty you possess
You are like a shining diamond star
In the dark, velvety skies
Even when glanced at from afar
Such wonder captivates the eyes
And in everything you do
You are like a work of art
So now I'll leave these words with you
And just hope they touch your heart

With hair like silken strands of gold
Even Aphrodite frowns
For from the heaven's she's been told
She must abdicate her crown
Yet she is aware; she must confess
That when compared to you
She shall never quite possess
The elegance you do
So Venus weeps a sorrowful tear
As her reign has ceased
No longer on Olympus will she appear
From her thrown she is released
So Venus humbly steps aside
In a saddened crawl
Because in her place you now reside
As the most beautiful of them all
The goddesses of beauty no longer are two
As Greek and Roman now agree
And they have chosen you
Their goddess of beauty

A conflicting opinion
Suddenly yields
To incessant fighting
Upon open fields
Some guided by voices
Others by light
What does it matter
Why do they fight?
Out of aggression
Driven by spite
There is no difference
Who's wrong, who's right?
Fighting for answers
Fighting for pride
Brother to brother
Side versus side
Battling spirits
Different ideals
Never realizing
How each side feels
Still no solutions
Been fighting for years
Crying for help
Through shattered tears
Engaged in a battle
Who really knows
Who you are fighting
Your friends or your foes?
Stop for a moment
Reach into your heart
Is this important?
How did it start?
Lost in confusion
Lost in this strife
Helplessly struggling
Clinging to life
The conflict forgotten
The motive long gone
Yet still there is fighting
The killing goes on
The battle continues
When will it end?
Why won't they stop it
And break this trend?
If peace is settled
It does not last
And before long
They repeat the past
Unsettled arguments
Linger around
Where there are people
Fighting is found
After the fighting
One side is appeased
Yet still there is anger
As the other is not pleased
It is a lesson
When will it be learned?
Or must more people die
And cities be burned?
So pay attention
And do not allow
The escalating arguments
Just stop them right now
But don't use your weapons
Only your mind
Move toward the future
And leave fighting behind
The only solution
Is for peace to stay
Or people will vanish
As life fades away
Examine this closely
The world is at stake
Do not be foolish
And make a mistake
Look into the past
And you'll see that it's clear
When you live by fighting
You live in fear
Yet the world is far from over
Look and behold
Life still does blossom
The book is not closed
So write a new chapter
And it will suddenly seem
That despite the past
Once again you can dream
Cultivate the world
Like a blossoming flower
And expand your mind
As knowledge is power
Prepare for the future
And live for today
For only through everyone's help
Will the peace surely stay
Just remember these virtues
And you'll be surprised
At the wonderful things
That will soon arise

    “Desire”
The cool, crisp breeze; the winter air
Remind me of how much I care
For while the bitter cold makes others shiver
I no longer even quiver
Because I simply think of you
And remember that you love me too
Then my heart is quite appeased
Despite the nasty winter breeze
So, the oceans and seas may go dry
But my love for thee shall never die
Even mountains and rocks may disintegrate
But my love shall still incinerate
A burning care as I aspire
To fulfill your dreams and your desires
And think about the wondrous night
When I can sit and hold you tight
For my dear you know I'll do
Anything to make your dreams come true
Never shall my love subside
As I shall stand right by your side
Proclaiming my love so true
For I would give the world to you
So in your dreams you may believe
And I'll make sure you're not bereaved
For you shall surely see
A day your dreams shall come to be
As my heart is set on fire
With my love for you and my desire

Rhythmically my heart pounds
Flippant, buoyant, fantastic
It just seems like elastic
As it stretches to new bounds
Overflowing with love
My heart remains teeming
It just feels like I'm dreaming
In the starry skies above
Aphrodite would frown
Even Venus must confess
As they both do digress
They relinquish their exalted crown
Your beauty outshines their pride
They're startled by your compassion
It sets a new fashion
Which just can't be denied
It's so easy to tell
When overcome with this feeling
As my heart is enchantingly pealing
For only you shall this passion quell

I have dreamed and now aspire
To combine your dreams with my desire
And I surely promise you
That I will make your dreams come true
As I hope that you can see
The extent of my love for thee
All your fears shall fade away
And your pain shall be allayed
Never would I harm you
Because my love for thee is true
I hope that you will understand
That by your side I'll always stand
As I say this unto you
Tell me you feel the same way too
For my love you do possess
So please to me you must confess
Just how you really feel for me
As I have told you I love thee
So please, my dear, to me be true
And tell me how you love me too

The sky is orange streaked with blue
All that's there are me and you
We walk along, I hold your hand
The waves crash gently over the sand
As we stare at the skies above
I say that it is you I love
We look up at the starry night
As we sit there I hold you tight
We're gently sprayed with ocean mist
While I give thee a loving kiss
Then the stars dance in the skies
And I stare into your eyes
I tell you happier I could not be
Then sitting upon the beach with thee
I will protect you from your fears
And comfort thee in times of tears
How I long for the special day
When together we may stay
I'll hold you in my arms for good
And love you like I know you should
I hope this makes your dreams come true
On the beach, just me and you

Thy beauty casts a rainbow over a dismal sky
Thy compassion arouses a sparkling within your eyes
Thou lavish aspects are of a true angel
Casting thy divine incandescent beauty upon all
A goddess whose magnificence makes all gather around thee
In mere hopes of catching a glimpse upon your wondrous beauty
An invaluable jewel of the world upon which all hopefully stare
As thou art the most desirable possession the world has yet to bear
But most importantly thou art my inspiration
The possessor of my heart, ambition, and creation
And though I may not be able to flatter
Thee with extravagant gifts suitable for someone of your grand stature
I can give thee all the care and compassion which I possess
And perhaps be found a worthy companion for my fair princess
Though a poem is merely words that can never capture thy magnificence
Combined with the utmost sincerity and compassion of which I write this
I simply hope that it can be
A gesture of my care for thee
And thy importance in my life from the start
Hoping you can realize that you are always close to me within my heart

        “What You Mean to Me”
What is a car without an engine?
How is a tree without its leaves there?
Can a day without light begin?
What is a person without air?
All of these things are needed essentially
So when one asks what I am without thee
It could never be fathomed even for one day
Is all I have to simply say
For you are my own true love
And as essential to me as any of the items above
You are a crucial part of my life this does show
One that I could never let go
So when you ask if I care for thee
All I can say is that 'You'll never know just how much you mean to me'!

        “My Love and Salvation”
Clouds move in and cover the sky
The gods begin to weep
Then I stop to turn around as my obstacles are steep
But just as all seems dark and down
Your voice rings through the air
Intently saying the precious words of just how much you care
All of a sudden the clouds do part as the birds begin to sing
The rain has stopped; the mountains gone; peace does gently ring
For no matter what the world may do
My heart and happiness belong to you
That is why I now must dare
To tell you just how much I care

I love her and she loves me
Tonight she said she'd marry me
Any happier I could not be
This is very clear to see
All because I am engaged to thee
Oh! She said she'd marry me!

A rose has petals soft as suede
Yet all the world can see
That though its beauty may never fade
It cannot compare to thee

The sky's a shade of powdered blue
The trees a striking green
But when my eyes are cast on you
It conquers all I've seen

With long and flowing auburn hair
And eyes- a stunning brown
Call my name and I'll be there
Your wonder is renowned
You have such stunning beauty
I don't know what to do
Oh dear, I need you with me
My heart belongs to you

In the ever starry night
I see the goddess of the skies
In her incandescent light
Shining right before my eyes
Oh, I knew right from the start
That I'd never be the same
She is the one who has my heart
I quiver at her name

With hair like silken strands of gold
And eyes blue as the sea
From the heavens I've been told
You are an angel sent for me
And when I am with you
I am overcome with bliss
Oh my dear I long to
Feel your tender kiss

        “I Love You”
What do I think about in my bed at night
Or when awakened by the morning light
Who is there when I close my eyes
Or stop and gaze at the starry skies
It is quite easy to tell
I think of only you my sweet belle
What happens when my body aches
Or when my happiness seems at stake
I simply hear your lovely voice
And soon again I can rejoice
Then I say that I love thee
And you respond that you love me
Now all is calm and seems quite well
My pains and fears have all been quelled
So if you lie awake at night
Filled with sadness or even fright
Just remember to be true
The one I'll always love is you!

        “Your Sweet Voice”
Why is it that my heart must rejoice
From the lovely whispers of your sweet voice?
Why is it that I must love thee
So astonishingly deeply?
None of these answers do I know
But I know I love thee so
And I promise there will never be
A day in which I would hurt thee
And eventually our dreams come true
Sponsored by my love for you
Then will come the day I'm no longer bereaved
For no longer must I leave
And in my arms is where you'll be
As I whisper “I love thee”
But as for now what I must do
Is simply proclaim my love for you
And hope that you'll find happiness
Since my love is very serious
And no longer shall you feel pain
For my love you shall contain

        “Soothing Conversation”
I call you up to ask how thou art
You say that you love me and open your heart
I'm feeling bad, I've had a rough day
I hear your sweet voice and it all fades away
I sit with my work as I feel despair
But all simply vanishes when you tell me you care
So if you must ask why I love you so
When you read my poems you should surely know
I deeply love thee
And you also love me
And on the day I can hold thee
Any happier I could not be
So now I just write, my feelings expressed
To show my love for you has no contest

        “My Heart”
My heart lets out a simple plea
That with you is where I have to be
To kiss your lips and stroke your cheek
For it's your love which my heart seeks
To hold you close and not let go
Is the feeling which I must know
So I sit and think of thee
And how happy we will be
That is when I'll be content
For I know our love is God sent
Then the day when it will be
Only us, just you and me
This will make me quite happy
To be able to marry thee
I shall help you pursue your dreams and thoughts
Regardless of the battles which must be fought
I know that this may easily seem
Like you are living in a dream
But you are not, this is how I feel
My emotions for you are very real
I will do my best to make you content
Your heart and dreams no longer repent
For everything I say is meant
I will treat and love thee the best I know
For my dear I love thee so
I'll be by your side for the rest of our life
As you will be my loving wife
And you shall always be
The most important thing to me
Never would I ever hurt you
For my love for thee is true
So, please tell me your dreams too
And I'll do my best to provide for you
Thus forever we shall be
Living in sheer ecstasy
For, my love, I would do
Anything in the world for you
And I know we'll never part
For you are the possessor of my heart

I still dream for the day
When all my troubles fade away
All my fears shall subside
When I have you right by my side
Within my arms I'll give you a kiss
As we rejoice in happiness
For there is nothing I wouldn't do
In order to prove my love for you
For I love you and you will see
Your dreams turn into reality
Remember that all I say is true
Especially the fact that I love you!

The snow has fallen to the ground
I stare and gaze all around
The ground is a majestic white
I gaze upon this wondrous site
Yet this to me is not appeasing
The site of thee is much more pleasing
Your voice rings on through the air
Filled with sincerity and care
As the snow starts to subside
I long to be right by your side
It may be cold but I'll hold you near
And whisper gently in your ear
I tell you that I love thee deeply
As my heart is rising steeply
For it is only you I love
When I stare at the sky above
I am reminded you are close
For my heart is like your host
So you are always close to me
Since I deeply care for thee

        “Happiness”
Happiness is a strange and mysterious state
It has many aspects and interpretations
While still holding the answers to my tribulations
So patiently I must await
Until happiness is in my fate
Happiness cannot be found in a mere infatuation
For that is merely speculation
Furthermore I must investigate
The answer is right in front of me
I see it right before my eyes
In my heart is where it lies
So quite happy I shall be
For I entrust my heart to you
With our undying love so true!

“My Love, My Destiny”
You are my life; you are my destiny
I love thee through infinity
I think about you all the time
My love for you makes my heart chime
A snowy day, the darkest hour
Your love alone gives me my power
I pray to God and ask that He
Make you feel secure in me
I will stay with you throughout your life
Through any trouble, any strife
You say yes, but then say wait
That you want time to acclimate
However, your feelings are still shown
So I'll attempt to be alone
I know that you do care for me
And I as well love thee deeply
You sent a poem the other day
But your letter told of things in another way
I read your poem several times
Closely analyzing all the rhymes
It is different than your letter
Your assuring words make me feel better
I read with hope your last two lines
Which help me through my hardest times
You say that you will stay by me
Despite the way that things may be
Yet then your letter switches tone
A different feeling is now shown
This different feeling is of fear
That you'll be hurt and left in tears
So now I attempt to respond
But I don't have a magic wand
I cannot make you trust me
Although that is how I feel for thee
Yet soon your fears shall subside
And in me you may confide
Oh how great your life will seem
Because I will fulfill your dreams
You are my life, I give my heart
For I know that we will never part
I'll hold you in my loving arms
Protecting you from any harms
In the past my life had fallen apart
And all over I did start
But you are my life this time, forever
I shall rebuild again but never
I pray for strength from God above
And then trust thee with all my love
I yearn for the day that you can say
That all your fears have gone away
For our love is heaven sent
And all I say to you is meant
So I shall promise never to leave
Or let your heart become bereaved
For over and over I do dare
To tell thee just how much I care
Hopefully when you read this letter
It will make your heart feel better
And if not I will still try
While I gaze at night into the sky
To just sit and humbly pray
For better luck another day
For I have examined my life
And know I want you as my wife
Your poem I hold as your decree
Insinuating that you agree
Regardless though, I feel the same
For this to me is not a game
I have just poured out my heart
Right from this poem's very start
And just as my love for thee
This poem has grown quite lengthy
I write and write and hope you'll see
How our everlasting love can be
But whatever you do; don't back away
For that would be a dismal day
For my heart shall always belong to thee
Right now and for eternity
So I know that you've been hurt before
But that shall happen nevermore
Never again shall you feel pain
For I'll protect you from that bane
I don't know how this makes you feel
But everything I say is real
I have written you an odyssey
In an attempt to describe my love for thee
For you fill my heart with pure emotion
And then there is a great commotion
And should this feeling be contained
My heart would simply ache in pain
So it puts forth a lengthy show
As my emotions quickly flow
But it is true and must be told
That it is you I long to hold
To kiss you and make you feel sure
That in me your love is secure
I said before but shall repeat
Never shall I commit the dastardly feat
Of hurting thee in any way
For my love for you is here to stay
And as I said right from the start
I knew I'd love you with all my heart
And truly I know to be
You are my love, my destiny
So I shall pray to God above
To keep this everlasting love

        “The Beauty of Snow”
The snow falls down and piles high
In awe I gaze upon the sky
As it dances through the air
I just wish that you were there
For it creates a beautiful sight
And you glow with such a wondrous light
Your beauty is so great it emanates
A light so majestic that it illuminates
Even the darkest, dismal night
Shining like a star so bright
So I gaze upon the sky with brevity
To search for my life's own amenity
And when I see that brightest star
I am reminded of how beautiful you are
But now upon this day so cold
It is now when you I'd hold
Nestled in my arms so dear
Sheltering you from any fear
And when the snow falls to the ground
I'll know that you are safe and sound
For you will be right by my side
As we watch the snow subside
The trees outside are whitely painted
My windows seem quite lightly tainted
But no matter what the scenes behold
To your beauty they humbly fold
So my indifference to what the weather may do
Is because my eyes are only set on you
And regardless of how cold it may be
I am warm when I think of thee
So I'll pretend to hold you tight
As I gaze upon this wondrous sight

        “Undying Love”
Thy beauty casts a wondrous glow
To which extent you'll never know
Thy compassion is that of a goddess
As it fills my heart with happiness
Thy voice portrays a caring tone
Through which your love is fully shown
You are so lovely and divine
I hope to think of you as mine
For I would surely so for you
Anything you want me to
You say my dear that “you need me”
And hope that I shall never harm thee
Well, I surely say to you
That I feel the same way too
For my dear the skies above
Have granted this undying love
Yet still I know that you have fears
From those who have left you in tears
All I can say is I love you
A love undying and so true
And never will there be a day
When my love for you shall stray
This is not a speculation
Or a mere infatuation
For you shall hear my decree
Which I now present to thee:
“I have an undying love for you
And shall make your dreams come true
I will never administer
Anything remotely sinister
Never shall you feel any harms
Safe within my loving arms
Never would I tell thee a lie
For I'd surely rather die
I have an undying love for thee
And you mean the world to me.”
This is not a speculation
But is simply my declaration
So always keep it in your heart
And you shall know right from the start
What I have declared to be
Is my undying love for thee
Remember what you have just heard
And hold me to my every word
And maybe these heartfelt rhymes
Can help you through your toughest times
Always remember whatever you do
I'll always be right here for you
I only hope you feel the same
As what I have just proclaimed
For I know that soon you'll see
That you can confide your trust in me
When a problem comes your way
Call me up upon that day
And please do not fret or pout
As I will help you work it out
I know there are things you want to say
But fear just keeps the words away
And please you must believe
That from your side I'll never leave
For my heart belongs to thee
And you mean the world to me
As this undying love was meant to be!

        “Punishment”

        “To Be With You”
Never could there ever be
A person as wonderful as thee
You are my love and happiness
To me you are a true goddess
Thy compassion shines into the sky
Casting a love that shall never die
And as long as you agree
By your side is where I'll be
I bow down enraptured by thy glory
And plead for you to marry me
With you is where my heart resides
Promising a love that never dies
And of all the things that we shall do
I'll always cherish being near you
To hold you close within my arms
Protecting you from any harms
Giving you my love to keep
As you gently fall asleep
No more shall you have despair
For when you awake I'll still be there
Never again shall your heart miss
The tender passion of my kiss
I'll bestow upon thee my caress
And try to provide thee happiness
For all I need to bring me bliss
Is simply a loving kiss
For my dear your gentle touch
To me means just so much
So as long as you are there with me
My dreams shall be reality
So just state your desire
And I promise to aspire
For I devote my life to you
To have you there in all I do
Oh so happy I shall be
When I get to marry thee
And my dear I must confess
I yearn to feel your soft caress
No matter what I say or do
I think of being there with you
So anything you say to me
Say with utmost dignity
For anything which comes from thee
Has the power of decree
Important are your thoughts and cares
So do not be afraid to share
Anything you feel or desire
For in me it shall inspire
A chance to fulfill your every dream
This is exactly how it seems
For every word I say I mean
You are the most beautiful person I've ever seen
So if you have a dream, just tell me please
And for you I'll attempt to appease
For I need you to survive
As in your love is where I thrive
For my dear I need to be
In the loving arms of thee
I know that we shall never part
And I love thee with all my heart
I know that I shall marry thee
And love you for eternity
For my dear I love you so
And I want you to know
I think of thee in all I do
The only one for me is you
The one I give all my love to
An undying love which is so true
My pain your embrace allays
For I shall love you always
So my love I beg of you
To say you'll always love me too
You are the true love of my life
I'll be so proud to have you as a wife
My love for you is oh so strong
Yet gentle as a loving song
For in the slightest whisper of your voice
My heart always shall rejoice
Every time I see your face
All my troubles are erased
I think of you every day
My love for you shall always stay

        “Starlight Dance”

When I gaze into the skies
It is so majestic
For I can see into your eyes
And the feeling's so fantastic

For the stars they shine so bright
With the gentle light they radiate
But this is a trivial sight
To the beauty which you emanate

Then the starlight starts to dance
As in your heart I'm gazing
I just fall into a trance
And the feeling's so amazing

As the light, falls upon me
I envision your warm embrace
And then suddenly…I see
How you touch my heart with grace

Then I feel a cool crisp breeze
And I know what I must do
So I get down on my knees
And just pray I never lose you

Then the starlight starts to dance
As in your heart I'm gazing
I just fall into a trance
And the feeling's so amazing

Now the heavens they digress
And adhere to my plea
I can feel your soft caress
As you are right beside me

So I hold you in my arms
As I gently start to kiss thee
And we're safe from any harms
Together for eternity!

Then the starlight starts to dance
As in your heart I'm gazing
I just fall into a trance
And the feeling's so amazing!

Many times I would fear
Of losing something that's dear
I close my eyes, it's pitch black
Before I know it, it's all taken back
So I search like a fool in the dark
Aimlessly roaming like a guy in the park
I have no place to start
I have no guide but the love in my heart
So I stroll through a strange looking town
Thinking my life is just heading down
But the light in my heart still does burn
And around the next corner I turn
I see what I've been searching for
I know I need not look anymore
For there was a fear I had known
In the dark I stood all alone
Everything was stripped away
Not even a reason to live for the day
Cause of that fear of building again
Just to fall down when I'd recovered within
To turn in a confusing blank stare
Aimlessly look and find nothing there
Then right into my life you came
And I knew no longer would it be the same
For I felt my love from within
I closed my eyes and I saw my heart burnin'
I knew that my search had ceased
Because of you I have found my peace
Through your love you have shown
That no longer must I be alone
And in you I can confide
Always keeping you right by my side
That's why I know to be true
That my dear I shall always love you

A rainbow dart across the sky
The flying colors catch my eye
Bright colors flash majestically
Falling far as the eye can see
As these objects fall like rain
I see the wonder they contain
It's unlike all I have seen
Raining yellow, orange, red, and green
It is such a grand surprise
But skittles are falling from the skies
So I catch the candied treat
So delectable to eat
As they fall I look around
In awe of this prize that I have found
In my joy I look for you
So you can share this wonder too
I hold you close as we kiss
And hope you'll always remember this

I always think of you
Its all I do it seems
No matter what I do
You are even in my dreams
I knew right from the start
But I made a few mistakes
But still you have my heart
And I will do whatever it takes
I know that things are strange
And I know you are surprised
But my feelings do not change
They are stronger than I realized
So I leave these words with you
And hope you will find a way
To know that my feelings are true
And believe what I say
Then things will be well
So just tell me when
For you are so special
And I want to try again
For I know within my heart
That I'll make your dreams come true
You will be happy from the start
And you'll know that I love you

Your eyes are bright as fire
Your skin so soft to touch
You are my true desire
I miss you oh so much
Your voice cries out so sweetly
Your beauty is so true
Oh I love having you with me
My heart belongs to you
Your hair flows down so softly
That all can't help but stare
When your hand touches mine so gently
I just know how much you care
So it's quite easy to tell
That you are the one I love
You are my one true angel
A gift sent from above

I try to find the way we were
I try to work back up to her
An attempt to relive paradise
Despite the hardest sacrifice
And though right now she is away
I hope there comes a time she'll stay
For though right now my heart is torn
I will not sit around and mourn
But will do my best to win her back
And work on all the things I lack
This time will be better than before
I'll show her that I love her more
I'll treat her well; I'll treat her right
I'll be there for her day and night
But most of all I'll quell her fears
I'll heed her worries; I'll dry her tears
I'll show her just how deep I feel
I'll show her that my love is real
And hope that she will come to me
For our love was meant to be

Oh when I think of you
My heart begins to fly
Cause no matter what I do
Without you I'd just cry
Cause when I feel you near me
My heart is filled with bliss
You have an inner beauty
From your heart right through your kiss
But to be apart
Is a pain I wish I didn't know
It is like a stinging of the heart
But confirms I love you so
Now I'll close my eyes
And wish upon a star
And though I don't know how
Wish to be right where you are
And hope to my surprise
All this fades away
And when I open my eyes
You are here to stay

My heart was stolen by a girl
My world transformed within a whirl
Her body moved like hollow flames
Which no man could ever tame
Her movements flickered quick like fire
And quickly captured my desire
She mystified me in with her allure
I knew I had to see her more
I couldn't get her from my mind
Someone better, I could not find
This I knew must be a sign
That I had to make her mine
I saw her eyes were cast on me
As she smiled innocently
Her hair flowed lovely as a stream
But she remained elusive as a dream
For though her musings played with me
There was more that I could see
She had me captured in her game
I knew I'd never be the same
She came just close enough to tease
But then left briskly as a breeze
And she knew as more time elapsed
She had my heart more firmly grasped
It was obvious to tell
I was mesmerized within her spell
No matter how I tried there was no way
My eyes refused to look away
And her passion just burned brighter
I knew there was no way to fight her
I would act at her command
She held my heart within her hand
The more of her that I did see
The more I needed her with me
Her skin was pure as new borne snow
She had an incandescent glow
But despite ones pure desire
She could singe your hand like fire
She'd take your heart and fade away
Like the night upon the day
Leaving you in misery
Pondering this mystery

Sometimes I think you're too good to be true
And I get so worried because I love you
I love you so much that it often seems
Like you're an angel sent from my dreams
You are so sweet, funny, and kind
A better girl I could never find
You could make me laugh; you could make me cry
It's always hard when you say goodbye
It makes me miss you and think about things
But then I feel better because the phone rings
I hear your voice and all things seem fine
I am so relieved to know you're still mine
But now I realize that this isn't fair
You shouldn't have to prove that you really care
I know that I love you and you love me too
I no longer doubt that all this is true
You're always on my mind and in my heart
I know that we will never part
When I think about you, my heart's filled with glee
As I realize just how happy you make me
I miss so much, you are my true love
You are a gift sent from above
To list why I love you would take all day
As there are too many reasons to say
I love all about you from your laugh to your voice
I know I want to be with you; I have made my choice
To look at your face or gaze in your eyes
Is a beauty more wondrous sight than the dark, velvety skies
From the bounce of your spirit to the depths of your soul
You are the one who makes me whole
I can't even tell you all that you do
But my world's so much better because of you
I never knew how happy I could be
Until the time I had you with me
I hope you know all these things to be true
Oh by the way, did I mention I love you!

Just a little greeting as the holidays grow near
That I wish to send to those that I hold dear
I hope that this season proves to be your best
And that through the year you will continue to be blessed
So have a merry Christmas and a special New Years too
And know that my best wishes will always be with you

I now talk to a girl so beautiful and smart
That she leaves a strong impression on my heart
I know that she is special a jewel so hard to find
I know that she will always be right on my mind
So now I leave these words as a momento of her worth
And thank God for putting an angel here on earth

Sometimes there comes a person who really touches your heart
A person just so wonderful that you love them from the start
A person through whose touch your world is made complete
Just to catch a glimpse of them becomes a wondrous treat
Their eyes just seem to capture the wonders of the world
Through them all the mysteries are magically unfurled
All my life I didn't think such a person could be true
But now I know it is because I have found you

The velvety petals slowly bleed
Their wonder fades away
They lose the allure that they need
Their beauty cannot stay
The roses that were once so great
And captured everybody's eye
Now yield an unimpressive fate
When their petals wilt and die
For while it once was quite a sight
Its appeal did soon subside
As its praise was not reached right
The eye never looked inside
But if the beauty from within
Could match what the eye had seen
Then its wonder would begin
When its looks did wean
For beauty comes and beauty goes
While the heart remains set fast
And it seems time always shows
That only a true love lasts
So do not stop with a quick glance
Of what the eye can see
But try to find a true romance
And search the soul more deeply
Find an angel whose heart teems
With inner beauty strong enough to shine through
This will be the one of your dreams
As behind the pretty face there is a good heart too
For while all looks will one day fade
When compared with something new
I know that I would never trade
The love I have with you

I wish I could tell you
What you mean to me
Through all that you do
Through all that I see
You have changed my life
In so many ways
You've lessened the strife
You've brightened my days
I always smile
At the sound of your voice
I've thought for a while
But have now made my choice
I want you with me
Of this I am sure
As the days move by quickly
I just love you more
So all I can say
Is that I knew from the start
That you'd always stay
Within my heart

When I look at you
It is clear what I must do
For my feelings are so strong
That I know they can't be wrong
You have set my heart on fire
You are my love and my desire
All my dreams came true
The moment I found you
You are so beautiful yet sweet
You have swept me off my feet
It's in your eyes it's in your soul
You are the one who makes me whole
Your gentle touch, your flowing hair
I wish you knew how much I care
Or knew just what I'd do
Just for a chance to be with you
And if I knew the words to say
To make you never go away
Then I would say those words to you
And hope you'd feel the same way too
So think of a love so true and real
And then you'll know just how I feel

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
But every moment of the day
All I think about is you
You'll share your hopes and dreams
You'll even hold my hand
But unfortunately it seems
You just don't understand
You make me oh so happy
I love to feel your kiss
But still I wish that there would be
Something more than this
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
I guess it's no surprise
I should have known it all the while
I asked how you felt for me
Yet you said you weren't sure
So I just kept hoping there would be
A chance for something more
Seeing you with someone else almost makes me cry
It would always feel so strange
But I still continued to try
In the hopes that things would change
So I leave these words with you
And hope you will see
That you really do
Belong right here with me

When I cast my eyes on you
It is clear what I must do
As I realize all the joy I'd miss
If I failed to feel your kiss
So bewildered by your charms
I go to you with open arms

Despite the brightest shining star
Or the cool, shimmering sea
All I know is that where you are
Is the place I long to be
So calmly take my hand
And push your fears aside
For whatever life has planned
I will remain right by your side

“Serenade di Giuseppe”

Now I implore you, hear what I say
I send a word of care to you to help you through the day
Though things seem dreary when you're not around
I close my eyes and picture you and happiness is found
When you're not with me, it sure does seem
That my joys just fade away like a summer's dream
But still I know that there'll come a day
When this will be of the past and together we can stay

Though things seem hard now
Please remember this
Soon we'll be in each other's arms
Our love sealed with a kiss

Yet now the days just linger, and time seems so cruel
I stumble 'round with weary eyes like a love sick fool
But still the stars do glitter, and the ocean sprays its mist
Reminding me of the wondrous times that I sorely miss
But theses memories keep me going, despite how tough things are
And the love I have burns bright for you like a shooting star
So even though my heart is aching from how deeply I miss you
I know that you're worth any pain that I must go through

Though things seem hard now
Please remember this
Soon we'll be in each other's arms
Our love sealed with a kiss

So this pain shall subside as the suffering is erased
And with true love and joyous times, it shall be replaced
So please do not worry, though now there may be tears
For the future is so bright for us and filled with happy years
Though now the skies are gloomy, the sun is breaking through
And that is the message that I must relay to you
But the words "I love you" are all I need to say
I love you now with all my heart and it grows stronger every day

Though things seem hard now
Please remember this
Soon we'll be in each other's arms
Our love sealed with a kiss


“Why?”

When we went out for the walk
I was worried from the start
But when you said 'we need to talk'
Oh, I knew you'd break my heart

But why, oh why
Your words they make me cry
So why, oh why
I feel like I could die
Oh why, oh why
Oh… why…?

You said that you must find
Somebody…new
Oh I'm gonna lose my mind
Cause I'm still in love with you

I ask why, oh why
Did you have to say goodbye
Oh why, oh why
I sit alone and cry
Oh why, oh why
Oh… why…?

Oh I just don't understand
How you took me by the hand
And would sweep my fears away
With the sweet things that you'd say
But now you say you're sure
You just don't love me no more
And just like that we're through
Oh what did I do to you?

Oh why, oh why
Oh… why…?

Is there something I can do
To keep from losing you
Oh I'd do anything
To stop you from leaving

So why, oh why
I'm torn apart inside
Oh why, oh why
Oh… why…?

I just don't know where to start
But you've torn my world apart
I can't help think of the past
And those days I thought would last
Oh I don't know what to say
But the tears won't go away
So should I just sit here and cry
And simply wonder why
Oh why, oh why
Oh… why…?

“Listen to Me Baby”

Listen to me baby 'cause I've got something to say
Oh my heart's been aching since you went away
I tried to get you out of my mind but nothing seems to do
'Cause no matter how I try I'm still in love with you
So will you give me one more chance to make it better than before
Oh please forgive me darling I can't take this pain no more

Listen, baby, listen,
Oh just please say that you'll listen
I want you back my baby won't you say that it's o.k.
So please come on back darlin' and uh say you're gonna stay
And listen, baby, listen
Just please stay here and listen

For when I close my eyes at night and feel that you're not there
It just tears me up inside- a pain I just can't bear
And baby I am sorry for the things that I have said
And oh you know I do regret the path that I have led
But if you give me one more chance I'll turn it all around
I will be there for you- girl I'll never let you down

Listen, baby, listen
Oh please say that you'll listen
Oh I will be so good to you and always talk so sweet
I will love you baby, oh I'll sweep you off your feet
So listen, baby, listen
Just please stay here and listen

Oh I know there was a time I didn't treat you well
And though I said I loved you I'm afraid I couldn't tell
For things they moved so quickly and I didn't know what to do
And oh my dear I'm sorry if I took it out on you
But oh I hope you'll believe me in what I'm 'bout to say
Never again will I hurt you- not at all in any way

Listen, baby, listen
Oh please say that you'll listen
And if there ever is a time you feel that I don't care
Just a turn right to your side, I promise I'll be there
So listen, baby, listen
Just please stay here and listen

Now I know I love you- oh of this I am quite sure
And with every breath I take ya know I only love you more
I will hear your problems and I'll listen to your fears
I will always hold you close and I'll wipe away your tears
So when I close my eyes tonight I'll say a litle prayer
And when I wake tomorrow morning I hope that you are there

So listen, baby, listen
Cause I need you here with me

        “Stepmother”
Sometimes words cannot express
What the heart would like to say
But still I shall try my best
To tell you anyway
You've become such a large part of my life
That I feel like I'm your son
I'm so happy Daddy found you for his wife
You care so much for everyone
And no way is satisfactory
To thank you for all you do
All I can say is you mean so much to me
And that I love you

I know that you are there, and I know that I am here
But when I close my eyes, I always hold you near
For I can hold you close and feel your body next to mine
My heart has never felt this way, I know it is a sign
I cannot let you go, oh I've never felt like this
And all I really know is that I long to feel your kiss
So despite how this may seem, despite how things may be
I know what I want; I want you here with me

I wish that I could find
The proper words to say
You are in my heart and on my mind
Our friendship is here to stay
We've shared so many memories with each other
Some were good and some were bad
But we were always there for one another
Through the happy times and sad
You've been there all the while
You've help me shed my tears
You turn my frown into a smile
And you push away my fears
One thing I know for sure
Is that in the end
I could not have asked for more
Than to have you as my friend
So despite where we may go
Or however things may be
I want you to know
That you can always count on me

Friends are often hard to find
A person funny, sweet and kind
They make you laugh; they make you cry
You never want to say good-bye
They are always there for you
Whether you are happy or feeling blue
Never one to put on heirs
Or hurt you with aversive stares
They seem to know just what to say
To brighten up your cloudy day
They know your hopes they know your fears
They've seen your smiles; they've seen your tears
They know you well; they seem so smart
But most of all they touch your heart
They touch your life in a special way
It's a gift more special than words can say
You have been a friend to me
With your kindness and generosity
The many times you've made me smile
Or kept me laughing for a while
And though sometimes we grow apart
I always hold you within my heart
I know that you will always be
A friend that is so dear to me
In your eyes your love does show
More than you will ever know
In my life you have a part
A special place within my heart
For I know you are my friend
One I can count on 'till the end
So I share these words with you
And hope that they have touched you too
But one more thing before I end:
Thank you, for being my friend

“Oonta Vede; Oonta Vaye; Oonta Vaye Ah Daye”
If I were to come to you in the middle of the night
Would you say that you love me and just hold me tight?
And if I stood there by your side when all was said and done
Would you say you needed me and that I'm the only one?
Tell me how you wish the things in your life would be
Tell me that you'd be content as long as you're with me
Come on baby come to me, say your love is true
You're the one who has my heart I'm so in love with you
So let me take you by the hand and sweep your fears away
While you open up your heart with the things you've longed to say
I will give you all my love in everything I do
I think of you all day and night my heart belongs to you

Do you see a person when you look at me
Or do you try to vision what you want to see?
Do you like me as I am, just the way I seem
Or do you try to make me into something from a dream?
Do you look inside and see within my heart
Or have you overlooked that aspect from the very start?
Do you ever wonder how things make me feel
Or do you just assume that my emotions aren't real?
Do you see my soul when you look into my eyes
Or would a deeper meaning be a big surprise?
Do you ever wonder what I long to do
Or do you just believe that everyone thinks like you?
Do you really care about the person inside me
Or is there someone else that I am supposed to be?
So will you make an effort to heed the questions from this rhyme
Or will you still view them as a waste of time?
I hope that you now realize just how thing should be
And finally see a real person when you look at me

I just don't know what to say
But this pain inside won't go away
When you said goodbye to me
I cried so hard I couldn't see
My heart was torn right in two
I wanted nothing more than to be with you
I pleaded with you not to go
I loved you more than you will ever know
But all you did was turn and sigh
Leaving me alone to cry
And I cannot even begin
To talk of the pain I felt within
I always wondered what I could do
To get another chance with you
So now I try my very best
Until you're mine I will not rest
I hope that you will one day see
That you belong right here with me

SAVE ME
S
adly it all fades away
A dismal night replaces day
V ast shadows fall upon the land
E xtending their insidious hand

M y heart grows still and skips a beat
E nthralled by this horrific feat

  Oh Baby
You said before that you weren't sure
If you could take this anymore
You said before that we were through
That I should find somebody new
But suddenly you say you care
Suddenly you want me there
Tell me girl make up your mind
Tell me girl what did you find

Oooh baby oooh baby
Look what you do to me
Look what you do to me
Ooooh baby oooh baby
Oh baby can't you see
Baby can't you see

You play my mind; you play my heart
You've played me girl right from the start
I never know just what to do
I never know what to expect from you
You say one thing but mean something else
Then you say you love me and my heart melts
But how can I know if that's true
Help me girl give me some clue

Oooh baby oooh baby
Oh baby… look what you do to me
Ooh baby ooh baby
Oooh baby… oh baby can't you see
Look what you do to me

Tell me girl now decide fast
You have one more chance but it's your last
How do you want things to be?
Do you want to be with me?
Tell me you won't act the same
Tell the truth it's not a game
Cause girl I want to hold you tight
But only if you make things right

Oooh baby oooh baby ooh baby
Look what you do to me
Oh baby can't you see
Ooh baby ooh baby
Oooh baby… I'm glad you're back with me!

I close my eyes
I hold you tight
It's no surprise
It feels so right
Does it seem
Like a dream
And could it be
That you love me
You are so sweet
Make me complete
My search is done
You are the one
I know it's true
I'm in love with you

Who would have known that I'd regret
The very day that we met
But time has passed and through the years
You've given me nothing but hollow tears
My hopes are gone; my dreams are slain
You have caused me so much pain
I was too blind to stop and see
How much you were hurting me
But now I realize and I know
That it's time for me to go

Don't ask me why: don't ask me how
But I know I'm leaving now
I tried so hard; you had your chance
But let's end it now; let's stop this dance
You lied to me; you broke my heart
I think we need some time apart
I wish that things turned out differently
But this is the only way that it can be
I have thought it over and now I know
That it's time for me to go
There is nothing I can do
I cannot be the one for you
As I turn away, please don't cry
I care for you but must say good-bye

How was I supposed to know
When I kissed you our first kiss
But when you said you had to go
I realized all I'd miss
I remembered the sweet look of your smile
And your oh so gentle touch
I had not realized for a while
That I loved you so much
But when you went away from me
My heart was torn in two
I knew that there would never be
Another girl like you
So I now I come to you on my knees
With a tear in my eye
Hoping you will hear my pleas
And give me one more try

Oh I'm so glad I found you
You've changed my life so many ways
Through all the little things you do
You really brighten up my days
You put a smile on my face
And a warmth within my heart
No one could ever take your place
And I'm sure we'll never part
You are so funny, smart, and kind
With such beauty too
You are always on my mind
All I think about is you
You know your looks can mesmerize
Oh where should I begin?
From your deep alluring eyes
To your soft and lustrous skin
When you look my way
My heart just skips a beat
What else is there to say?
You have swept me off my feet!

You want to talk about the things I did
You want to tell me what to do
You want to talk about what happened then
Well I don't really want to
I gave you all I had to give
Yet you always wanted something more
You lead me around in circles
It seemed like you were never sure
So I tried my best every day
Hoping that I'd please you
But nothing seemed good enough
So what was I supposed to do
And now that things have fallen apart
You come to me and cry
You say you have a broken heart
And you just want a reason why
When all I ever wanted
From the very start
Was a girl that I could love
With all of my heart
So do not ask me what you did
For it is now too late
I tried with you so many times before
But now you've sealed you're fate

I wish that I could help you
When you are feeling down
I wish there was something I could do
To take away that frown
I wish that I could dry your eyes
And take your fears away
I wish that I could soothe your cries
And brighten up your day
I wish that your life would remain
Free from heartache and deceit
I wish that I could ease your pain
And make your life complete
I wish that I knew a way
To mend your broken heart
I wish I could take your problems away
Before they could even start
I wish that I could hold your hand
When you feel you're on your own
And just help you to understand
That you are not alone


If you could see into my eyes
And feel my heart beat too
I'm sure that you would realize
How deeply I love you
I know that you would see how much
You really mean to me
The way I yearn to feel your touch
The way it's meant to be

Your passion is like fire
Furtively dancing within your eyes
Full of intrigue and desire
Like the dark and stormy skies
Striking fast and fierce like lightning
You moved so quickly from the start
That it was almost frightening
Just how soon you stole my heart
Like a thief within the night
There was no way to resist
It just always seemed so right
From the first time that we kissed
But when lips fell upon mine
There was one thing I did know
There would never be a time
That I would ever let you go

“Always on My Mind”
With a sparkle in her eyes
And the magic of her touch
It was easy to realize
Why I missed her oh so much
She is so sweet
She is so kind
With her my life's complete
She is always on my mind
So what should I do-
To tell her all of this
Except to say I love you
And give you a sweet kiss

“As I Watch My Love”
She doesn't see the stars -from the angels overhead
She doesn't hear their song -while she's nestled in her bed
But I hear them gently calling, and I listen to what they say
From the heavens, they have come -to show me the way
The clouds scatter, then transcend with a pure light
And I know at this moment that it must be right
I can see her -she sleeps peaceful in my eyes
And I cherish her more than she could ever realize
Then I pause for a moment to make sure she is real
When she wakes I will hold her and tell her how I feel
Cause I know that I love her and this feeling won't subside
And I hope when its over she will stay right by my side
Yet I know, it's not over -in fact it's just begun
And I look at my baby and can tell that she's the one
So I hope I can keep her safe from any harms
For now and forever she'll be safe within my arms


“Missing You”
My heart is now empty where you used to be
Leaving a dark hole deep inside of me
I tried to get you out of my mind but you are still there
I never could have realized just how much I care
I miss holding you close on those cool, breezy days
I miss hearing you tell me that you wished that I would stay
I miss hearing you say you love me as you looked into my eyes
And I miss just being with you more than you can realize
But now all I have is pictures, deep inside my head
I relive all our memories as I lie awake in bed
At first I thought after some time I would get over you
But nothing seems to make it better; I don't know what to do
I wish I could go back it time to the way it was back then
For I would do anything to have you back again

      “Intrigue”
When I saw your face my heart skipped a beat
Even with just one quick glance you swept me off my feet
Never had I seen such vivacious, stunning eyes
They lured me in with intrigue and left me mesmerized
Your beauty was captivating like a vivid work of art
And before I knew what happened you had stolen my heart
Then I saw your smile glisten like an angel in the sun
And in that fleeting moment I could tell you were the one
For never had such lavish beauty been present in this world
And by your divine radiance I quickly was enthralled
Then dancing quickly like a fire you suddenly dashed away
Leaving me with a memory that I cherish to this day

        “Hole in My Heart”
You stole my heart, you stole my mind
You took my love and left me behind
What was I supposed to do
My whole life was built around you
Then, suddenly I was all alone
With nothing I could call my own
I had to start all over again
But had no clue where to begin
I don't know how many nights I cried
For when you left part of me died
You didn't just set yourself free
But also left a hole in me
So now all I can do is pray
That you'll come back to me some day
For I know that only then
Will I become whole again

Even the fist time that I saw you, I already knew
That I wanted nothing more than to be with you
I could see playfulness in your smile and intrigue in your eyes
I fell for you so fast that it took me by surprise
Yet the only regret I have is not moving even more quickly
For those could have been a few more minutes of having you with me
I never thought I would find a girl so beautiful and sweet
I am so happy that I found you; you make my life complete

“Heaven Sent”
Your eyes- they are so pretty
As they dance within the light
And your hair flows oh so lovely
As it glistens in the night
With the beauty of an angel
And the passion of a queen
You make the world stand still
And admire what it's seen
Your voice like cherubs singing
Touches the souls of all its known
And still so sweet and caring
Your compassion stands alone
I know I will always cherish
Every day I spend with you
You fulfilled my every wish
You've made my dreams come true

“Forever Yours”
As I lie awake in my bed
I remember all the things we used to do
I still mean every word I said
I'm still in love with you
I can't forget the way it used to be
Your laugh your smile and your touch
You really took a hold on me
I miss you so much
It's like I can't go to sleep
Without you by my side
I guess I fell for you too deep
When you left I almost died
So I'll close my eyes and say a prayer
Then wish upon a star
When I wake I hope you're there-
I hope you always are

A frozen tear falls from the sky
As the heavens weep
But cold winds come and freeze their cry
And the snow does pile deep
As the sunshine fades away
There comes a shivering breeze
Whistling through the skies of gray
And rattling the trees
With hands of ice and a heart of stone
The storm just rages past
Chilling all right through the bone
Flying fierce and fast
White daggers in a swirling wind
Cut sharply through the air
A plague too powerful to rescind
It smothers all that's there
And when it finally passes through
The land is bare and white
But once again the sky is blue
Despite this winter plight

The snow gently flitters through the air
A pure majestic white
Falling soft without a care
To cover all in sight
It kisses the rooftops and paints the trees
And truly warms the heart
While snowflakes dance within the breeze
Like a perfect work of art
And while this captivates me
My eyes begin to stray
For I see something with such beauty
That it takes my breath away
And then I know what I must do
So I gently take your hand
As it feels so right to be with you
In this winter wonderland

“Sexy Snow Queen”
I found my true snow angel
On the pure white slopes one day
She was more beautiful
Then words could ever say
Her eyes danced innocently
And her smile warmed my heart
I knew I needed her with me
From the very start
She is my sexy snow queen
With her skin so soft and pure
More precious than any girl I've seen
Oh who could ask for more?
And beneath this lavish beauty
Is a girl who's kind and sweet
A girl that means so much to me
She makes my life complete
Oh I wish that I could find a way
To tell her all of this
That with her I cherish every day
And savor every kiss
And I know that it's time for me to tell
Even if I stumble through
You are the girl that is this special
Baby, I love you

        “Spring”
Blossoming flowers everywhere
With their fragrance floating through the air
Inviting the intricately painted butterfly
Which carefully skips across the sky
With the gentle hum of bees
Pollinating any flower that they please
The birds chirp majestic melodies
As they fly amongst the trees
The stream gurgles a peaceful song
While it slowly flows along
Luscious grass covers all that is seen
Painting the hills a vibrant green
With the sky a shade of powdered blue
To compliment the emerald hue
Dew drops gently caress each flower
As remnants of the last sun shower
And like the rabbit- quick and lithe
So is nature- blissful and blithe

        “Stardust”
The stars are emphatically blazing
In a light that's so amazing
Yet there seems to be a haze
Scattering the bright stars' rays
It couldn't be…but it must!
It's that legendary stardust
That despite coming from afar
Is a fragment of the star
Although quite small it may appear
To all its glory it does adhere
And all the stories are quite true
Of what this stardust can do
Emotions in your heart will teem
Like in your most fantastic dream
And despite how dreadful of a day
All your problems fade away
As you marvel at the sight
Of this pure angelic light
So make a wish and you shall see
Your fantasy will come to be
Now I know how this may seem
But it grants your wildest dream
So take some and aspire
To fulfill your heart's desire
And I attest that this is true
For it's the way that I found you!

        “My Angel”
If I were by your side
I would never forsake thee
For there is no place I'd rather be
And my love shall not subside
Taking you by the hand
With the impact of thunder
Emotions torn all asunder
As we walk along the sand
Walking along the shore
You'll never believe what I just saw
It will leave you in sheer awe
And this I can assure
Just a few more steps now
I think it was over there by the seashell
Tonight I have seen an angel
And to this I vow
Oh, now where could she be?
I shall look all around
Wait! Do not make a sound
She is right beside me
With such a heavenly glow
It is you of which I speak
You are the angel that I seek
And this I surely know!

“Late Night”
Do you dare insinuate
That I may stay up too late?
It's only two… or make that four
But I'll only be up a little more
Besides it being a delight
I have a lot to do at night
Do it earlier you say?
But there aren't enough hours in the day
To do all the things I need to do
If I wake up at five past two
And any earlier would be
Quite ridiculous to me
For I need to get some rest
In order to perform my best
And I deserve to get some sleep
Despite the schedule that I keep
And for who is it to say
Just what constitutes the day?
For I have been able to tell
That the night works just as well
When enveloped in a book
Or preparing what to cook
When the craving of a midnight snack
Does undoubtedly attack
And no time shall ever be
As peaceful as the night to me
And you will surely find
The night is soothing on the mind
For there are no contraptions
Making loud noises and distractions
Letting you discover what people mean
When they describe the word serene
As you see how blessed you are
To wish upon that shooting star
Which quickly darts across the sky
Right before your very eye
Free from any noise or screams
But as peaceful as your dreams
Until you slowly slip away
From this wondrous holiday
For in your bed you'll gently crawl
And into golden slumbers fall
Until the early unwanted call
Breakfast time for one and all!
But this you can easily ignore
With the feigning of a snore
But as for now it's getting late
Oh no! The clock has just struck eight!
So I think you'll agree its time
For me to end this little rhyme
But hopefully now you'll realize my delight
In staying up so late at night!

“The Power of a Rose”
The petals- a soft and velvety red
For love the rose is surely bred
Everyone is especially unique
As a more wondrous flower one could not seek
And when a raindrop is carefully placed
It makes the rose look diamond laced
Then when the drop remains still
The rose looks so celestial
As though from some power deep within
It made its petals pearl laden
Since this power is so emphatic
One becomes quite ecstatic
When this jewel of nature
Is presented unto her
Either as just one alone
Or with eleven similarly grown
For no gesture can replace
The loving look upon her face
When you graciously say
“For you I have brought this bouquet”
As at that moment she will know
That you truly love her so
This example clearly shows
The majestic power of a rose

As the rustling waves from the sea
Crash over the coarse sand
It makes me yearn to be with thee
And take you by the hand
While the moonlight casts its gentle rays
To compliment the ocean's tone
I'll naturally give nature praise
But still I'm glad I'm not alone
For when that same light strikes your cheek
Or accentuates your eyes
There is no way one could ever seek
A more delightful prize
And to hold your hand inside of mine
As we walk along the shore
Makes the nights seem so divine
And wondrous ever more
The stars then gently twinkle
Lighting the sky with ease
And giving a celestial sprinkle
To the softest ocean breeze
The breeze then gently blows along
While causing your hair to flow
Like a soothing mermaid's song
From the waters deep below
To be with you upon this night
Is what I boldly claim
Shall make my heart just take to flight
And willingly proclaim
That when you are within my arms
In this majestic scene
There will be no sudden alarms
As all is quite serene
No stir or utterance shall you hear
Except these words so true
When I softly whisper in your ear
“My dear… I love you!”

Love is a fire that burns through the night
Keeping you warm and holding you tight
Lifting your spirits when things get rough
Keeping you smiling when times are tough
Giving you comfort when you're on your own
Holding you close when you feel alone
Calming your mind when you close your eyes
Allaying your fears and soothing your cries
And helping you through all the things that you do
Which is why it is easy to know I love you

        “Sun Set”
The orange gently kisses the sky
And intertwines with blue
Reddish tints soar oh so high
With purples scattered through
The fire sets amidst the sea
In the shape of a burning sphere
While like flickering cinders clouds shall be
Dancing very near
Until the ocean quenches its thirst
And all does disappear
The flames are all extinguished
Leaving the sky black with starlight tears

    “Blizzard”
Flirting softly with a crisp breeze
While dancing so elegantly amongst the trees
Then covering the ground in the finest of powders
Until the once pleasant breeze begins to grow louder
No longer flirtatious with this capricious air
Suddenly it forces the cotton clouds to tear
A vicious gust of sugar crystals strike the ground
And the fine powder turns into mounds
The trees unleash a ghastly moan
As the demon-like wind howls a horrid groan
The imp's whistling pitch reaches a new height
While glistening whit daggers thrust at full might
A foreboding white mass is all that is in sight
And the ground slowly suffocates under this ominous plight
The plague completely dominates the sky
Resounding with a chorus of agonizing cries
It seems like all hope is surely gone
As the hideous storm just carries on
Yet suddenly with the force of thunder
The thick white dome is torn asunder
From one little pinhole to the tiniest rip
And in a brief moment, the once blistering charge begins to trip
From the one glimpse of hope that was the start
The fortress of clouds is torn completely apart
Light penetrates the impeccable fiend
While the wind begins to grow serene
The demon hastily flees
As the light shines down upon the trees
Once again the white lights flicker
And with them the wind does gently bicker
But now there is a clear blue sky
As the once mighty plague begins to die
Now all of the flickering lights have faded away
And the once harsh breeze is now allayed
The birds now perch on cotton trees
While gently singing with the breeze
A thick white blanket covers all
For the mounds of powder have grown quite tall
But all is peaceful with the storm's end
The sun lends help as a caring friend
Eventually the piles shall dwindle away
Under the powerful sun's mighty ray
But for now it's here to stay
Providing a place for all to play
And as long as there is light
All are safe from another plight

        “A Night in the Forest”
The forest is covered by the presence of night
Darkly tainting all in sight
The oak smiles a mischievous grin
From the black chasm deep within
Erratic yellow lights sizzle in the sky
Illuminated by the firefly
The crickets chirp an ominous song
To scare away those who don't belong
And beware of growing fond
Of the painted frogs within the pond
Brightly colored yet harmless?
Oh no! They are quite poisonous!
There are sticks and vines which come alive
For on your ignorance they thrive
Be sure not to make the mistake
Of confusing an old stick with a wily snake
Stay on the look out for fire ants
As through the forest they quickly prance
For unlike those city ants of black
They respond with a paralyzing attack
And shall be quite amused
With catching a camper who is confused
At night at the forest you're always near
Many things which you should fear
For everyone must beware
Of the stalking grizzly bear
Though easily spotted during the day
In the dark of night finds easy prey
And it has repeatedly been found
That at night the shadows move around
But in the forest it's not only your imagination
So be sure to do an investigation
For as the wise men always say
It is better to be safe than sorry any day
So be careful if you go alone
As none of these dangers shall be clearly shown
For everything that causes fright
Is protected by the presence of night

“Another Night in the Forest”
The wind blows gently through the trees
Telling you to enter if you please
The crickets chirp a peaceful song
Intriguing you to walk along
Water flows slowly down the stream
With the serenity of a summer's dream
Stars gently twinkle from above
Filling the air with hope and love
Moonlight beams are elegantly cast
Making you wish this moment could last
No constrictions, just completely free
When leaning against a mighty tree
Or galloping across the forest floor
As across the mossy ground you quickly soar
The leaves they form a cushioned seat
So you can rest your tired feet
The night owl then emphatically sings
While you enjoy these wondrous things
So embark on a delightful tour
Of all that nature has in store
And you shall surely see
How peaceful a night in the forest can be

Sometimes you meet a person that makes you so happy
But for some reason it just wasn't meant to be
It hurts you deep inside cause you know how strong you feel
You really care so much for them; you know your love is real
They are always on your mind and you hate to be apart
From the moment you heard their voice- you knew they stole your heart
They have a way about them that is so hard to explain
They fill your heart with more feelings than you thought it could contain
Because you have them in your life you feel truly blessed
You know that until they're in your arms, your heart will never rest
But alas at times life can be so cruel
And leaves you sobbing like a love-sick fool
Yet though this pain does hurt so bad
You try your best not to be sad
For you know that for this romance
You were willing to heed any chance
For though the consequences were steep
Your love for them ran much to deep
And once again you'd suffer through all of this
Just to feel one tender kiss
You may ask how I know this to be true
Well I know because it is how I feel about you

I come to you, just to beg of you
        To hear what I say
I have you in my heart and on my mind
        Every night and every day
So I think of you, it's all I can do
        Since you've gone away
So I close my eyes, upon these starry skies
        And plead with you to stay
Now I'm all alone, and my pain is shown
        As my heart cries
Don't know what to so, so in love with you
        That the tears just fill my eyes
Now I know what's at stake, must my heart break
        Or can you take me back again?
So answer please, I'm upon my knees
        Just say that you can
I give you my heart, don't tear it apart
        I hope this you can see
So I beg of you, say you love me too
        For together we can be
So just say to me, that you agree
        To give it one more try
I shall do my best, give nothing less
        So please adhere to my cry
Please just one more chance, I will do the dance
        And adhere to your needs
You mean the world to me, I hope you can see
        It's for you my heart bleeds
So just say you'll stay, don't go away
        For I love you desperately

When I have you beside me
I suddenly feel complete
For to be able to hold thee
Is a most wondrous treat
To hold you tight within my arms
Is oh so comforting
Protecting you from any harms
That the night may bring
I'll keep you there right by my side
And heed to your desire
And in me you may confide
As our love is like a fire
That burns a bright majestic blaze
Which kindles from the heart
And as long as this flame stays
We shall never drift apart
My love for you burns bright indeed
In an eternal flame
You truly are the one I need
And that shall always stay the same
So I hope that you have learned
From the very start
That my love for you has always burned
Brightly in my heart
So if ever you do feel confused
And start to drift astray
No matter what path you choose
Our love shall guide the way
Shining forth with a bright light
To act just like a guide
Helping you through any plight
Until you're by my side
So as the problems come and go
The future still is plain to see
I will always love you so
And together we can be

When I take you in my arms
Or hold you by the hand
It makes my heart burn oh so warm
With feelings hard to comprehend
Though their exact meaning is unknown
One thing I know for sure
That for you my love has grown
Every day I love you more
Without you my heart aches in pain
For my one true love
But fortunately it does not remain
As I'm reunited with the one I'm thinking of
I miss having you by my side
Or holding you close to me
For with you is where my heart resides
And by your side is where I yearn to be
You're pretty smile and flowing hair
Accompanied by your embrace and kiss
Show me just how much you care
And assure me I am missed
It is wonderful to be with you
So I hope you understand
That our love is surely true
And the future ours to plan
For a day without thee
Is a pain I wish not bear
As I want to have you near me
And tell you that I care
I want to see you every day
As often as I can
For I hope that you will stay
And let me hold your hand
As I keep you in my arms
And hold you tight throughout the years
Protecting you from any harms
And allaying all your tears
For the love I have for thee
Is more than just plain love
You are my future, my destiny
An angel from above
So question not my motivation
And let all your qualms flee
You are my love and inspiration
For all eternity
So let your fears just fade away
And slowly close your eyes
Just picture some wondrous day
That your feelings synthesize
No longer troubled by your fears
Or what others say to do
So shed not another tear
As I am there with you
And forever it can be
A life of love for you and me

We talk on the phone
Spend time together
And when we're alone
No time is better
You say you love me
And that it won't change
We are so happy
But now something is strange
It started off slow
As misunderstandings
But how could I know
That it would end things
So the tears flow free
For you and me-
        The way it used to be
What can I do
To make things better
I've tried to reach you
In a letter
But no reply
Ever comes back
So I try and I try
But still seem to lack
The right words to say
Though I try everyday-
        You don't care anyway
What did I do
What could it be
How did I hurt you
We were so happy
But you said suddenly
That I broke your heart
And that maybe we
Should spend time apart
How did this happen?
Why did you go?
Will you come back again?
Please let me know
Now time has passed
And I still care for you
How long will this last
Tell me what can I do
When you said you loved me
You said that you knew
It would always be
Just me and you
And though now things do differ
From your original aim
I want to make things better
Are your feelings the same?
Do you still love me?
Am I still in your heart?
Do you wish it could be
Like it was at the start?
Whatever the cause
That made you change your mind
Forgive it because
I'm sure you will find
That my love for you
Is definitely real
My emotions are true
I know how I feel
So now I'm asking
What do you desire?
I'll do anything
That it may require
This time you adhere
As I make my plea
You shed a tear
And say that you love me
Everything is better
As my dreams have come true
Again we're together
Just me and you

I always wondered what it was like to be in love
To care for a girl so much that she was all I could think of
I always tried to figure out exactly what I would do
But I guess I'll find out soon, cause I'm in love with you!

I hope you have a day
Full of happiness and love
A time where you can stay
With the one you're thinking of

I ask of God a special wish on this cold, dark night
That he lend a helping hand in relieving your plight
And though I can't do much, I say this little prayer
And hope that it will touch your heart to know how much I care

Out of sight was out of mind
You went away, left me behind
I didn't know what to do
But still I stayed to wait for you
And although you never came
My love for you remains the same
So I close my eyes every night
And think of ways to make it right
But, alas, it still seems
That you're only in my dreams
Because when my body wakes
I am alone and my heart still aches

Sitting here thinking of you
And all the fun things we can do
Just wishing that I were there
To show you how much I care
So I stare at the sky above
And dream of you, my love
Until the time when it can be
Just us- you and me
