I smelled you

August 30, 2010 § 14 Comments

Here you are
My heart has been looking for you
I smelled you
Even before you climbed into bed
Before you whispered goodnight
Replacing the smile on my lips
With a kiss to send me to sleep
I smelled you
and you were there with me
before you disappear with my next thought
hold me so and melt into my dreams


A Night Sky Filled with Wishes…Poets Rally Week 27

Poets Rally Week 27


As the sun kisses the horizon
I keep watch for the first evening star
As she comes forth
I wish for you
And on the next
I wish for us
So continues my heart calling forth each new star
Wishing for all the glories in the world
Each wish calls forth another
So when they come out in pairs
I just send out my wishes in pairs
Never missing not one
Wishing for you the whole night
And when the last star has come out
I watch my love for you extend
To the moon and back
And when my heart makes her last wish
I lay illuminated by my hope filled heart
Feeling you all around me
Awaiting for the heavens to heed my wishes
For the blessings to shimmer down to me

I feel so gracious to those who felt my work was worthy enough to receive
a nomination. It took me a while to start posting on a regular basis and a
lot of the reason was due to my participation in this community and
wonderful feedback I’ve received. Thank you to everyone who has made
my blog what it is!

I would like to share this Sunshine Award with everyone who comes to my
blog and leaves their thoughts, for those who come and leave nothing but
return another day anyways, and to those who hold the inspiration to
many of my posts. Please share these Awards with whomever. Spread the

I played you a love song today
Because I missed the sweet joys
Your love supplies my day with
And trying not to love you
Was just too exhausting

You, babygirl, are a strong woman
Descending from a lineage of strength
A legacy of struggle

You are a strong woman
Created to harbor life
Destined for a purpose

You, my love, are a strong woman
Made to withstand the problems of life
To hold the weight of God’s tests

The strength in yourself is all you need
Because you, my dear, are a strong woman

Shed not your tears love
I have cried for both of us
The deepest love gone

Empty Heart

August 22, 2010 § 21 Comments

Upon receiving an empty jar
I was told to open it with caution
That your kisses could fly out
Two, Three, Four at a time
Hungrily searching to meet my lips
And despite temptation
This jar was strictly
For emergency use only
For when my heart wishes for something
That your absence can not provide
But every day that you’re not here
is an emergency
and my jar is running on empty
You’ve been gone for too long

Where Am I?
