From My Heart
A million stars up in the sky.
One shines brighter – I can’t deny.
A love so precious, a love so true,
a love that comes from me to you.
The angels sing when you are near.
Within your arms, I have nothing to fear.
You always know just what to say.
Just talking to you makes my day.
I love you, honey, with all of my heart.
Together forever and never to part.
What do I do,
When I’m still in love with you?
You walked away,
‘Cause you didn’t want to stay.
You broke my heart, you tore me apart.
Every day I wait for you,
Telling myself our love was true.
But when you don’t show, more tears start to flow.
That’s when I know
I have to let go.
To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.-Ogden Nash
When I was One,-A. A. Milne
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five,
I was just alive.
But now I am Six,
I’m as clever as clever,
So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
If I Thought
If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
I’d tell you I’ll love you forever, even beyond death.
If I thought for just one moment that your face would be the last I’d see,
I’d take a million pictures and save them just for me.
If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I’d hear,
I’d listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear.
If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I’d feel,
I’d embrace you and know that this has all been real.
If I thought for just one moment that my heart would beat its last beat,
I’d thank the Lord for allowing us to meet.
What She Is To Me– Darren C Swartland
Look at the beauty in her eyes,
a glow that shines like the sunrise.
Her smile opens up the cloudy skies,
her laughter delights butterflies.
The ocean greets her as she passes by.
Her gorgeous toes leave their mark, saying goodbye.
Gentle breeze through her hair,
she walks elegantly while astonished eyes all stare.
Rosy cheeks cover her face.
A flower-child blossoms, kindly accepting embrace.
She is a thorn-less rose without compare.
She is the love my heart will forever endear.
Tick tock…tick tock…
Life is counting down on your internal clock.
Memories that feel as if they occurred yesterday
turn to flashes of moments that seem to fade away.
People you once knew
walk by without a clue.
The times you once shared
exist as if you were never there.
Years fly…friends die…
and you never know when you’ll say your last goodbye.
Oh, how I wish I could turn back time,
spend it with loved ones and cherish what once was mine.
Or to go back even more,
being a kid in a candy store.
How I miss the way I used to feel
on Christmas day when Santa was real.
But back to reality…back to today,
family is scarce and memories continue to fade away.
Tick tock…tick tock…
How I wish I could control this clock.
The True Meaning Of Life
The Years have passed by,-Pat A. Fleming
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.
People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.
Life wasn’t easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn’t care.
I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.
And now with old age,
It’s become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.
And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.
And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.
But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.
And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.
And what’s really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I’m the best I can be.
And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It’s my time to go.
Nobody knows it’s empty,– Azumi Zaima
The smile that I wear.
The real one is left behind in the past
Because I left you there…
Nobody knows I am crying.
They won’t even see my tears.
When they think I am laughing,
I wish you were here…
Nobody knows it’s painful.
They think that I am strong.
They say it won’t kill me,
But I wonder if they are wrong…
Nobody knows I miss you.
They think I am all set free,
But I feel like I am bound with chains,
Trapped in the mystery…
Nobody knows I need you.
They think I can do it on my own,
But they don’t know I am crying
When I am all alone…
Love Is Eternal Feeling
Love has no reason,
Love may have no season
When you love someone,
All you want is to spend time with them,
When you love someone, you might wish days to be long,
Longing in the heart where you belong,
Love is an eternal feeling so true,
Everything seems so vibrant and new!
Sands Of Love
I want t walk with you
Hand in hand, along the soft sand.
Holding you tightly to me, as we softly caress.
To be into you, and you into me.
To a depth neither wants controlled.
Tasting you, inhaling you breath as we kiss.
To love as we never knew.
A love so caring, passionate, tender and true,
As we lay on the soft sand.-Marc Robinson
I Dream A World
I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom’s way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind-
Of such I dream, my world!
All Good Things Come To An End
All good things come to an end,
Even the gifts that God sends,
Like her, the angel He sent from above
who was the one person I truly loved.
She changed everything and made my life worthwhile.
She was the only one who could make me smile.
She really doesn’t understand how much she means.
I’ll never be as happy as I’ve been.
She was my heart and my soul,
She filled me with joy and made me whole.
She was my world, my greatest treasure.
I loved her so much that it couldn’t be measured.
I remember every kiss and touch.
All our memories I miss so much.
I wish we could go back in time,
When I was hers and she was mine.
I’d always protect her and let nothing harm her.
How ironic it was though that she was my armor.
She always made me feel so secure.
No matter what went wrong, she always had a cure.
With her I felt absolutely no fear,
But now I’m scared of anything that comes near.
She healed me and put me back together,
So I held on to her; she was my tether.
Sadly, she suddenly cut the rope,
And with it went my happiness and hope.
The spell had finally been broken
As I realized I had awoken.
It had all just been a dream,
No matter how real it may have seemed.
Everything I felt had been an illusion,
Explained by the way it left me in shock and confusion.
My best dream became my worst nightmare.
She vanished while she was right there.
She left me to struggle on my own.
She left me stranded, isolated, and all alone.
I had to wake up and realize
That the only real truth are real lies.
But I can truly tell her, “You’re the sweetest dream I ever had,”
And for that, I can only be grateful and glad.
To be happy again, I’ll have to relive the past.
Hold on to every memory for as long as they last,
To look back at how I used to feel,
To remember them as if they were real.
Even though it’s over, l’ll have to pretend,
Because all good things must come to an end.
