L is for Love


L is for the laughter shared with friends and family

O is being overjoyed when they share a gift on my birthday

V is for the very thing I hope and truly wish for

E is for everything my family does and more

Love is what I have for my friends and family every single day

It is the smallest gestures, the smallest pleasures

That mean the most to me

Without those precious moments

Especially those small deeds

I can not count the many times

They would give them up for me

They have taught me how to love and share

How to show great respect and care

I truly could not know just how

If they had not done that for me


Tomorrows Yesterday


We love, we travel

We smell and taste

We were busy yesterday

We did it all in haste


We breathe, we hear

The sounds of a new day

We care deeply, we sleep

So that we could welcome today


Tomorrow, we will love

We will travel and care deeply

We will hope, we will dream

For each day we welcome

Tomorrows yesterday

Tears in the River


They come without warning

Could I but try and dodge them

They were drops that did not

Come down from the heavens

When you feel the nearness of it

Little thought do you put into it

Grant it not out of fear

My heart is stronger now

So I could not bend

I could not bow my head in resolve

With my head held high

I threw those tears in the river


Rise Above It

183585293Rise above it,

Do not let it bring you down,

The weight is heavy,

But keep your head lifted,

Your eyes on your goal,

It will not leave you,

Until you have reached it,

Until you have touched it,

You will  rise above it,

Do not let it bring you down,

The weight now is light,

You have risen above it,

Claim it.


When Love Whispers


It was slipping through my fingers,

So silently I almost felt nothing but a slight tingle,

Catching my breath so suddenly as something tugged gently at my heart,

It was your thoughts of me, unspoken words,

Hoping I would not slip through your fingers,

It was your love calling to me  ever so gently,

It was my heart that heard you,

And ever so gently, welcomed your love.

When love whispers and you do not hear it, your heart will feel it, like a breath of wind.


Special Moments


Every moment you are on my mind,

I may call you in the night, a very late night,

You offer me such peace I have never felt before,

I know I will always have a place in your heart.


Good Night Rain

It splatters her cheeks as she gazes up and smiles into it.

It streams through her hair as she pirouettes, spinning gracefully to its tune.

It drenches her clothes when she splashes in the puddles, causing bouts of laughter.

It dances on the walls when it peeks through the lights of the street lamps.

Streaming through her window, it fills her room with the most beautiful sounds.

Like a lullaby it hums, giving her a good night’s sleep.
