The person I thought I knew

Looking around I see you, thinking you were the person I knew. You were in my life once, when I felt so sad so blew. Deep down and above, my love shares your love. Looking around I still see you thinking you were the person I knew Our love has grown apart but it has from the start I’m still thinking… you were the person I knew. You took away my fears, and then again you took away my fun. Asking myself what you have done to me, but know you’re my fear and it all has just begun. Thanking God my fear has ended and I’m just now realizing that I didn’t know, the person that I thought I knew.

The one I love

The one I love with all my might.
The one I’m thinking of tonight.
The one that helps me make things right.
The one I long to kiss goodnight.
The one I dream of when I sleep at night.
The one I think of when I hug my pillow tight.
The one that makes me happy when he comes into my sight.
The one I’m not giving up without putting up a fight.
– To “The One” that changed my life

Happy New Year 2010

May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

May New Year’s Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance – and include generous amounts for charity.

May you remember to say “I love you” at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

And may we live in a world at peace and with the awareness of God’s love in every sunset, every flower’s unfolding petals, every baby’s smile, every lover’s kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

Secret Admirer

Whose gift this is you cannot know.
My heart is in your keeping though.
You will not mind my writing here
To tell you that I love you so.

I know that you must think it queer
For me to love and not come near
But linger by some frozen lake
This most romantic time of year.

I sometimes give my head a shake
And ask if there is some mistake.
It’s lonely out here ‘mid the sweep
Of bitter wind and icy flake.

My love for you is dark and deep,
But it’s a promise I will keep
As from afar I watch and weep,
As from afar I watch and weep.

My Heart

dreams

Through the long silences
Into the darkness of the night
That separates us by distance
I can hear my thoughts
Whispering to me
Its sleepless secret
I search for your face
Your hand to hold
Your lips to kiss
Wanting to show you my affection
But my hands are empty
And I realize that I touch you
Not with my hands
But with my heart
My heart caresses your face
And holds your hands
And kisses your lips
It is my heart who sees and feels you
Until the time when I will be in your arms
And can see you with my eyes
And feel you with my hands
As well as with my heart

Inspirational Poem

One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what’s true.
One life can make the difference,
You see it’s up to YOU!”
