Missing You

You don’t know how much i miss you
or how much i really care
your like a dream
i open my eyes
to find that your not there

i wish that i could meet you
to see how much fun you are
so that you could hold me
but your destination is too far

i wish that i could touch you…
.i want you to touch me too
my heart is crying out for you
what am i to do?

i miss your friendly presence
you’ve got me thinking. ‘damn!’
you don’t know how much i want you
but you’re no where near i am…

Loving You Is Everything

Loving you is everything
to you i’ll never lie
i don’t care about having drugs
all i need is you to get high

Loving you is everything
you’re the best thing i’ve ever tasted
i don’t need no alcohol
a small dose of you and i’m wasted

Loving you is everything
i never wanna smoke
your love is like the air to me
without it i would choke

Loving you is everything
no matter where you are
you’ll be with me forever because
your love is like a scar…

~ By Yvonne Palalagi, New Zealand, Auckland

I Clearly See

She doesn’t think she’s pretty,
rather that she is quite plain.
I tell her, “No, you’re beautiful,
and every time I see you, I fall in love again.”

She thinks her voice sounds funny,
she says it’s like a child’s.
I tell her, “I think it’s sexy
and every time I hear it, my passions… they go wild.”

She says her eyes are such a strange hue
The color is hard to discern.
I say that makes them magical
and to be lost in them, I yearn.

She says she’s not a young woman.
Her hair is no longer dark.
She knows little about love
and she’s not sure how to give her heart.

I run my fingers through her hair
and tell her, “I do not care
if your hair is no longer dark
For we’ll learn about love together, I know you’ll do your part.”

She says, ” I’ll try your patience.
Sometimes I can obsess.”
I just smile and say, “No,
I never would have guessed.”

She looks into my eyes and smiles,
then snuggles into my arms.
She says, “You must be quite blind and mad to think you love me so.
I’m afraid one day you will clearly see and then you will go.”

I kiss her forehead, my smile pressed into her white hair
and say, “I may not be sane,
I never claimed to be but,” I whisper,
“For the first time in my life…I clearly see.”

~ R. Hammans

I Never Thought I’d Fall in Love with You

I never thought I’d fall in love with you.
I thought someday, of course, I’d fall in love.
But what it felt like, I just never knew;
I’d no idea what I was thinking of.

And then, somewhere between my need and pleasure,
Walking neither overjoyed nor sad,
I looked into my heart and saw a treasure
Worth more than anything I’d ever had.

Ah! This is love! I thought. And then I wanted
To give my life to see your happiness.
Suddenly, from nowhere, I was haunted,
Needy, joyful, tearful, glad, obsessed.

My love for you has brought me out of me.
The beauty in your heart has set me free.

~ Nicholas Gordon

Within His Arms

Within his arms where his strength lies
This is what I see through my eyes

Within his arms there is warmth of love
as soft as a white winged dove

Within his arms there is a sweet embrace
When I look up I see a smile on his face.

Within his arms there is security
I feel so secure and purity

Within his arms I feel safe and sound
against his chest I hear his heart pound

Within his arms I can’t go wrong
Within his arms is where I belong

If That’s What It Takes (Lyric)

You’re the bravest of hearts,
You’re the strongest of souls
You’re my light in the dark,
You’re the place I call home
You can say it’s all right,
But I know that you’re
Breaking up inside
I see it in your eyes
Even you face the night
Afraid and alone
That’s why I’ll be there

When the storm rises up,
When the shadows descend
Every beat of my heart,
Every day without end
Every second I live,
That’s the promise I make
Baby, that’s what I’ll give,
If that’s what it takes
If that’s what it takes

You can sleep in my arms,
You don’t have to explain
When your heart’s crying out,
Baby, whisper my name
‘Cause I’ve reached out for you
When the thunder is crashing up above
You’ve given me your love
When your smile like the sun
That shines through the pain
That’s why I’ll be there

When the storm rises up,
When the shadows descend
Every beat of my heart,
Every day without end
I will stand like a rock,
I will bend till I break
Till there’s no more to give,
If that’s what it takes
I will risk everything,
I will fight, I will bleed
I will lay down my life,
If that’s what you need
Every second I live,
That’s the promise I make Baby, that’s what I’ll give,
If that’s what it takes

Through the wind and the rain,
Through the smoke and the fire
When the fear rises up,
When the wave’s ever higher
I will lay down my heart,
My body, my soul
I will hold on all night
And never let go
Every second I live,
That’s the promise I make
Baby, that’s what I’ll give,
If that’s what it takes

~ Celine Dion

Thank You for Being the Love of My Life

Thank you for being the love of my life,
Half of the child asleep in my womb,
A husband whose husbandry made of his wife
Near as blissful a blossom as ever did bloom

Knight of my nights and dance of my days,
Yours are the eyes in which I am most me.
Only with you will I wend through my ways
Unburdened as heaven, unscathed as the sea

~ Nicholas Gordon

Love’s Not Easy on the Internet

Love’s not easy on the Internet.
Words alone can be misunderstood.
Love needs eyes and lips and hands to let
The hurt rests easy when the joy feels good.

Lovers can’t reach through the opaque screen
To underscore a message with their arms,
To say with touch exactly what they mean
Or give the light caress that anger calms.

Instead, they must rely on faith and trust,
Loving patiently a fleshless soul,
Taking words for kisses ’cause they must,
With full communion their elusive goal.

Be patient, love, and someday soon you’ll see
My body tells you what you mean to me.

~ Nicholas Gordon

From Ocean To Ocean

They are two people drawn together by an unseen power. A bond from a distance, only they know the reason.
Love has an intensity as still as a calm night or as savage as a raging storm.
That is the need.
Together they are one, alone no more.
A light comes into their hearts to make them alive.
Aware of life and living again in a complacent world. Strangers for a time, until their souls reach out and touch one another.
The knowledge of a lifetime is passed between them.
Sharing the joys, the tribulations, the expectations is a new experience.
Strangers no more, caring begins.
With familiarity comes laughter to brighten the spirit and lighten the heart.
An understanding, that words cannot express, spreads across the miles and friendship commences.
They wonder at this newfound level of love.
They revel at the very thought of hands caressing and lips touching from ocean to ocean.
The beauty of love is seen as an oasis in the desert of loneliness.
They know where to look and what to say.
They understand the workings of the mind to protect from pain.
It is all so new and yet so easy.
Heaven on earth can be love.
It can be friendship.
It can be understanding and compassion.
Most of all it is giving.
They gave of each other for each other’s happiness.
And together they found everything.

~ Marguerite Schrader

Touching You

Touching you
Touching skies
See the laughter
In your eyes

Touching you
Touching your lips
Taste the nectar
Of our kiss

Touching you
Touching your body
Our thoughts
In harmony

Touching you
Touching your soul
See the love
Between us unfold

Touching hearts
Touching minds
A love so gentle
A love so kind

~ Conlin.A.T. Revan

In Your Arms

In your arms, my thoughts could drift away
To a place, all our own, and a lovelier day.
Lavender sunsets and skies of blue
Would be ours to enjoy… just me and you.

In your arms, my only task would be
To make sure your kisses were just for me.
For every kiss… I’d give you four
And show you no one could love you more.

Then, just to prove we would never part,
I’d wrap myself around your heart.
Melting together (as lovers do…)
Passion and pleasure beginning anew.

In your arms, you’d know by the look in my eyes
That I was yours- no more silly good-byes.
And all of our dreams would soon come true.
You’d belong to me, and I… to you.

~ Lady of Knight

You Are My Dream Come True

Always in my heart
You make me feel more loved
Than I’ve ever felt
And happier than I’ve ever dreamed.
The love and understanding you have
Is something I have searched for
My entire life.

Always in my happiest
And saddest moments,
You are my best friend and confidante.
I come to you for everything,
And you listen to me
Without judgment.

Always, deep within my soul,
I know we have a love like no other.
What we share is something others
Only hope for and dream of,
But few ever experience.
Our love is magical beyond belief.

Always, without hesitation,
You give of yourself completely.
You have reached the very depths of my soul,
Bringing out emotions I never knew I had
And unveiling an ability to love
I never thought possible.

Always and forever
You will be my dream come true,
The one I have waited for all these years.
From now until the end of time,
I will love only you.
We will be together always.

~ Cheryl Ann

I Love You with All I Am

I love you with all I am
And all I’ll ever be.
You are my moon, my sun and stars,
My earth, my sky, my sea.

My love for you goes down and down
Beneath both life and death,
So deep it must remain when I
Have drawn my last faint breath.

Holding you for months and years
Will make time disappear,
Will make your lips my lips, your face
My face, your tear my tear;

Will make us one strange personage
All intertwined in bliss,
Not man or woman, alive or dead
Just nothing but a kiss!

~ Nicholas Gordon

A Kiss in the Rain

We step out of the car and into the street
You can hear it hit softly, like the patter of little feet

It’s such a magical time, like sunset on the ocean
We’re caught in its spell, and we move in slow motion

I move in close, with my hands on her waist
I take it slow, no rush, no haste

The rain slowly falls and the full moon shines
She slides her arms around my neck, and says “your mine”

The rain picks up and it soaks our hair
But our eyes are focused, we have no cares

I whisper in her ear, “I love you my dear
“You will always be smiling, you have no use for tears”

“I will love you forever, is my vow to you”
“You are my heavenly dove, may it always be true”

She smiles at me, with joy and bliss
My lips meet hers, and in the rain we kiss

The rain itself, dances all around
As I kiss my sweetheart, without a sound

The rain glides through the air and I hold her tight
It’s like the angels are crying, such a beautiful sight

Her tongue touches mine and its ecstasy
A kiss in the rain sets my emotions free

She pulls my lower lip and it takes its toll
My whole body tingles, like I’ve lost control

As the rain falls down I just can’t believe
That I need her to move, to think, to breathe

I take a step back and I look in her eyes
She tells me she loves me and my heart just flies

If you believe perfection simply isn’t real
Kiss your love in the rain, and I promise you’ll feel

Many things in this world can wash away pain
But none of them compare, to kiss in the rain

~ Matthew

Missing You My Love

You my sweet love
I miss ever so much
The softness of your lips
and your warm loving touch

Many uncontrollable circumstances
have kept us sometimes apart
Yet every moment i carry you
Deep within my heart

When ever we are together
My spirit is such aglow
You always color my world
Like a beautiful rainbow

You are the love of my life
that you will always be
The special times we share
Just mean everything to me

Each time we kiss
Theres nothing so sublime
always deliciously so fresh
like the very first time

Holding you close in my arms
Flames my passion and desire
My soul ever so burns
Like I am ravaged in fire

Each day I find happiness
Such joy and laughter
Knowing that soon we will be
And living
Happily ever after.

~ James R. Greene

Because Of You

I awake each day with a smile
And greet it with a laugh;
The world is a treasure to me
…Because of you.

Every time I think of something sad,
I replace the thought- with you!
My mind is instantly changed
And my heart is filled with gladness.

Every breath I take is meant for you,
I live this life surrounded in joy
And I bathe in the promise of your love,
My soul belongs to you.

Each time I see something beautiful
I want to take it and bring it to you;
My life has so much meaning now
All because of you…

~ Kate Reneigh Woodruff

I Want to Help You Fly

I want to help you fly,
But not away from me.
I want what’s best for you,
But fear what that might be.

There is no paradox
More difficult than this:
That I would die for you,
Yet not give up your kiss.

So do not mind my madness;
Fly bravely, if you must:
I’ll watch you, happy in your joy,
And teach my heart to trust.

~ Nicholas Gordon

The Way I Feel For You

Her long blowing hair floats
throughout the air. She will
run all day without a care.
She is always having fun!

She gives me all her love.
Without even blinking!
But when she hurts her heart
it is really, really sinking.

I can’t stop to imagine
what I would do with out her,
I would never see the sun making her hair glow,
or the way she says, “I Love You!”
I don’t think I could show my endless
love for YOU!

~ Brett William Skyllingstad

No Longer A Dream

Somewhere in my heart beyond all my pride
holds a secret desire so intense, deep inside.
Imprisoned with all my passion and love,
unknown to anyone but the one above.
A desire for someone to cherish and hold,
the need for a love to call my own.

Someone to kiss and make up with after fight.
Someone who can respect all I can be.
Someone who’s strong enough to commit and love only me.
Someone who will be there and kiss away my tears, secure my doubts, and release me from all my fears.

Someone I can depend on to be my friend, someone who can restore my faith in love once again.
This love is like a dream yet to come true,
Or so I believed until I found you.

~ Candice S.

Because You Loved Me (Lyric)

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream, you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through… through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies, you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

~ Celine Dion

To Love A Friend Like You

There are lots of things
With which I’m blessed,
Tho’ my life’s been both Sunny and Blue,
But of all my blessings,
This one’s the best:
To have a friend like you.

In times of trouble
Friends will say,
“Just ask… I’ll help you through it.”
But you don’t wait for me to ask,
You just get up
And you do it!

And I can think
Of nothing in life
That I could more wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And love a friend… like you.

If Every Time

I’ll never forget the way you looked
When I saw you there that night;
The way that you just seemed to glow
In the warm and gentle light.

If every time you crossed my mind
A drop of rain should fall,
We could swim on forever
In the greatest ocean of them all.

If every time I was proud of you
A flower bloomed anew,
I could walk on eternally
In a garden next to you.

If every time I craved your lips
A star was placed insight,
Darkness would never fall upon
Our love of endless light.

If every time you touched my heart
A bell would somewhere chime,
We could listen ‘till the end of days
To the music that’s yours and mine.

My love and heart are yours…
Every time.
