L is for Love

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

Tears in the River

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

When Love Whispers

capture-4

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.
