Your Eyes



Your eyes are a window to my soul
Peering in them, I am made whole
Looking deeply into their darkness
Seeing love, you’re never heartless

Your eyes are a door into my mind
Help when I can’t the answers find
Emboldend with a serious wanting
Or sometimes an intense haunting

Your eyes are a book upon the shelf
Tender words for me and no one else
Enchanting me with a smile so wide
For the love in them you cannot hide

Your eyes are a map guiding me home
Reminding me always I’m never alone
And when your eyes do close in sleep
It’s me in your dreams they will keep©

Forever And A Day


How long will I believe in you?
Until the seas stop their flowing
Until moon in the sky turns to grey
I will believe in you forever and a day

How long will I desire you?
Until the world stops turning
Until the trees no longer sway
I will desire you forever and a day

How long will I love you?
Until the sun does not shine
Until birds no longer fly away
I will love you forever and a day

When all is lost to me and I cannot find my way
I will look for you until it’s been forever and a day

She Said, He Said


She Said, He Said

She adores the way that he smiles
Wishing that he would never stop
She admires his soft, gentle eyes
With them he holds such mysteries

He is drawn to the way she laughs
Could listen to her do it into forever
He wants only to feel her gentle touch
Skin that longs to feel a single caress

She is fascinated with his great voice
But yet, after awhile she doesn’t hear it
She is pulled harder by his tender love
His heart shows his true compassion

He longs to put his hands through hair
Soft locks that look kissed by heaven
He could drown in her large b…eyes 😉
He looks there to see her soul’s window

She desires his attention, one that adores
Hoping he knows she needs assurances
She sees all his potential, believes in him
Wants only to free him from his own chains

He desires her attention, one that adores
Hoping she knows he needs assurances
He sees all her potential, believes in her
Wants only to free her from her own chains

These Hands

These hands

These hands were made to love you
Touch down deep into you soul
To carry your burdens for you
When you’re feeling so low

These eyes were made to love you
Looking into your heart’s depths
Seeing you for who you truly are
And guiding you however far

These lips were made to love you
Speak with healing words of care
Whispering how much they long
Perhaps even doing so in song

This body was made to love you
Until its final breathe is done
And when I say, “I love you”
Know you’re the only one.

I would die for you…give my life

We Go Together Like…


“Romance novels are birthday cake and life is often peanut butter and jelly. I think everyone should have lots of delicious romance novels lying around for those times when the peanut butter of life gets stuck to the roof of your mouth.”~Janet Evanovich

cinderella-cute-disney-drawings-girl-Favim.com-435179My favorite fairy tale growing up was Cinderella. You’ve got to love a girl who can sing and have animals appear, has a fairy godmother that gives her a makeover and then meets a prince who falls in love with her at first glance. This is the “stuff” little girls (and big girls) dreams are made of! And, while I do believe in love at first sight, as I have experienced it, I also believe in the reality of life! I’m not cynical… honest! I’ve been in an amazing relationship for 21 years, 18 of it married. However, it takes work!

Life and relationships are not all romance and perfection. Seriously, why do we set our kids up to believe this? While I do believe it’s great to have dreams and believe in love, I don’t think reality is anything like Disney portrays! Every girl does not need rescued, by a man that she in turn will love and marry right after meeting. In fact, many women are quite strong and would just as soon be on their own- however, society often looks sideways at this. And then, there are those like myself, married young and enjoying married life (we are strong too). There is nothing wrong with either choice.

hearteyesWhen going into a relationship or marriage however, it is very important to understand that it is not all hearts in the eyes, with romantic music playing in the background. Life is messy, confusing and often just straight out crazy! Put two people together that are different in many ways, better yet- sprinkle in some kids and POOF! That is not your fairy godmother, that is life swinging you around by the seat of your pants, right into a wall. The unexpected will happen, the mundane will happen and yes even beautifully unforgettable moments will happen. But, there will be a mixture that you most likely will not be prepared for, as you begin your journey.

You may be thinking, “Wow, she is not selling relationships very well!” My point is this, you should go in with eyes wide open. My husband and I have had our ups and downs. Blessed with kids (and sometimes cursed) we have learned how to raise together. We have been through trials that brought us closer and we have learned the ebb and flow to eachother. It takes commitment, understanding, willingness to forgive and more. The belief that when you chose to say “I do” and “until death do us part” you meant every word. That failure, giving up and divorce is just not an option! So, here is to success…


Relationships are not a “piece of cake”~ it’s okay, because, we go together like peanut butter and jelly anyway!
