When I see you

When I see you

When I see you

When I see you

Like a drop of oil spreading around
So does my heart move,
When I see you,
That is when I remember
How I treasure you.

Like a fragile glass,
Or may be like a little bad,
That is how I hold in my arms.

So close, and so deep,
My image in your eyes,
And yours in mine
Our souls meet.

I could stare at you all day long,
Those eyes, so white and bright
That smile, so wide and sincere
The cute dimples
I cherish your innocence.

Many things between us,
These happen,
When I see you.

God wants us to know

Free we should be

Free we should be

God wants us to know

I cry in the middle of the night
Do you?
Something touches my soul
Do you feel it?
Am not alone,
You’re not alone.
And God wants us to know.

God is there,
He is, for us
Just for us,
We’re not alone.
And God wants us to know.

You’re are hurt,
Am hurt too,
But we have to forgive,
Not that they deserve it,
But we do!
And God wants us to know.

God wants us to know
We don’t deserve to hold a grudge!
For we’re his temple,
God chose us to be free
Free we should be

Forgive them,
It’s hard
God knows too.
Let’s open our hearts for Him
And see things in as He sees them

He wants you to be happy
He wants me to be happy
His love is perfect
His name is healer
I and you are ‘his-own’
And God wants us to know.

God wants us to know
Forgive and be forgiven
Be happy and free
Then your spirit will worship Him.

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

I’ve waited for all my life
For the one and only,
I read in bed time stories.

The one that can fill this heart of mine
With butterflies and bubbles of love
The one so handsome, inspiring,
Amazing, loving and caring.

I find you soft spoken and fun
My heart is over flowing with joy,
Yet great mysteries surround you.

I’m touched deeply
In a way I can’t explain
By the majestic embrace of arms

My soul charmed
And a glorious connection was made.
I am left speechless.

A moment so short lived,
With my heart out of my chest,
One question remains unanswered;
Could you be the one?
Or it’s too soon to tell?

Forbidden Feelings

Forbidden Feelings

Forbidden Feelings

Forbidden Feelings
Every word you say,
Paints a beautiful picture in my mind,
One I would love to hold on to.
One I would love to cherish,
One I would like to share with you!

My soul is swept away in a breeze,
Emotions awaken,
Dreams ignited,
And a desire to have and hold
consumes me.

At that moment,
In a flicker, pain pops in,
Truth is we are not meant to be,
Forbidden feelings it is.

Truth sets one free,
But who wants to hear the truth
When it’s against them.

Feelings should be respected,
A miracle prayed for
But should dreams of pain,
And forbidden feelings
Be embraced?

Am tired of hoping against hope,
Am tired of holding on a dream
I can’t sustain.
Am tired of guilt
Forbidden feelings

My love will wait for you.

My love will wait for you.

My love will wait for you.

My love will wait for you

My love will wait for you
This I promise you.
Loneliness will come
Hope will fade
Yet my love will wait for you

Time will come,
When I will be tired of waiting
When God’s presence seems so far
Pray for me to be strong
And to hold on God’s promise
And my love will wait for you

Until then,
Let’s continue praying for one another
Until then,
Let’s continue writing to one another
Take care of your self, as I take care of myself
He hasn’t not forgotten about us
We have to wait for his time
We have to wait for our day.

Soon we will hold each others hand,
And another promise will be made.
I know you are as lonely as I am
Yet still waiting.
Just remember,
My love will wait for you.

I Love this man.

On this planet lives a man,
His love is mine and mine is his.
He makes me happy and
feel blessed by God.

He makes my day brighter
And paints a smile on my face when am sad.
He makes my worries and troubles feel lighter
He reaches out his hand to me,
Draws me to his to his shoulder
And whispers…
“It’s ok!”

Somehow he understands me,
When I don’t understand myself
He helps me reason and
stay focused on what is at hand.

His love is amazing…
Holding him is a heavenly bliss
He is all I could ever ask of

He encourages me
He supports me
He listens to me
He dries my tears
He celebrates with me
He writes me love letters
He remembers the days in our lives
And he embraces me gently

I love this man,
His love is unique and special to me,
Never will I let anything between us
I cherish each moment we share,
Even holding hands in church

My love,
Together there is nothing we can’t endure
You are a treasure I will cherish forever
I love you.
