Did you know?

Did you know?

Did you know I envied love birds?

And you came along, thank God!

Now, am jealous with you;

I need every moment for us!

—–

Did you know I love art?

I have a big painting of you in my heart!

And I dream of you often;

Such beautifully dreams.

Did you know?

—–

Did you why I was attracted to you;

Like a burning volcano?

You have a gracious voice,

How I admired your magnificent sound, so inspiring.

I praise you diligently for your character,

And I adore you!

—–

Did you know I would die without you?

I tremble every time you leave me alone

I miss you when you’re gone

—–

Did you know I pray for you all the time?

For God to shield you from your enemies

I care for you big time

And I cherish all our memories together.

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.

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?

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.

I Know That Woman

I Know That Woman

I know that woman
that says only things
she does not believe,

I know the one that
claims to hate love
when all she yearns for is
to love and be loved.
And she cries holding
strong on her pillow,

I know that woman that
hates feeling like a woman
because men treat her
less of her value.
And keeps her self
busy not feel alone,
I know that woman.

I also know that woman
that takes pride in her self,
and the fact that she is a woman.
When she walks by,
ever man turns around.
And she likes that;
it makes her feel attractive
and young inside.

I know that woman that
closes her eyes,
when she is kissed or hugged
as she saves every moment.
She adores her self and glorifies
God in all she does
for He made her who she is.

I know that woman.

Drowning in love

Drowning in love

That mystery face you carry of late
Those lips that move to smile
So often than usual
That glow in yo’eyes,
It has been long since I saw that.
I have come to love the woman I see.

You toss, turn and laugh in sleep
I know you have happy dreams
Filled with flower gardens and water falls.
What has changed in you?
I wonder.

You’re drowning in love
What else makes your heart lighter,
Awakes your passion and seal?
I love the moment,
And I know you love it to…
I pray it lasts forever.

Just another harvest

Just another harvest

Standing in the middle of my field,
All I can see is a bush,
Shrubs with thorns and hooks
I wonder, did I plant this?

Did some visit my garden
And change all my seeds,
Did I have a garden at all?
I wonder.

My house is so clean,
And so quite,
No kids running around,
Or a wife by my side!
I wonder, are these the choices I made,
Or someone else imposed this on me?

Am driving home from the supermarket,
My neighbor is walking home,
With heavy loads on her shoulders
Yet she turns down my help,
I wonder could she be scared of me,
Did I do something wrong to her?

So many wild seeds I have planted,
So many you too have planted,
Don’t act innocent.

Some I have forgotten,
Just like you have forgotten yours
Yet now all the fruits are ripe,

This is just another harvest
I don’t want to pick any,
Nor keep any in my house.
