Everyday Love: The Plan

About 2 weeks after my marriage to Jill, I left her the first of what I now call, "everyday love notes". It read simply, "Sleep on my queen and when you dream, dream me to be your king." 19 and half years, and several hundred notes later, I still find a new reason everyday to fall in love with her and I am still searching for the right words to express it.

So for the next year I am writing an "everyday love note" everyday. Honest expression of a man's love for his wife and how daily that love looks, lives and lasts.

All of these I will post here , and all of these I will write and leave for Jill.

Year in Review

I have learned a lot over the past year while trying to write each of these poems on a daily basis. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be but neither is love. There are good poems, great poems and poems that still need work...just like boening in love, there are good days, great days and days that I could have put some more work into. And even though every line is true...just like true love, sometimes it is stretch or hope that gets you there.

I hope there has been something the eveyone can relate to and draw from...I don't think my experience is too far removed when you really think about why you love the one you do. Thanks for reading and loving. Most of all, thanks to Jill, for being the women who inspired this project and daily gives me reasons to love her. I love you.

Love and Rapture

My love for you will never end
even though these rhymes may ceased
stronger than it's ever been
loving feelings over time increased

In all my attempts to catch it
I fall short of the mark
nothing I can say will match it
Love is a fire, words are a spark

It now falls on me to live a life
that poets will try to capture
may I being deserving of a wife
who fills me with love and rapture.

Never again so distant

My heart beats slows down
the further away I am from you
My body cold and numb
blood thickens like glue

But as time and space collapse
and bring us near once more
my heart begins again to race
allowing my spirit to soar

Sew my heart to yours
with twine so strong
never again so distant
never again so long

Thursday, July 14, 2011

every thought has you in it

I try to think of you last
before I close my eyes to sleep
hoping my dreams will cast
memories my mind can keep

I try to think of you before I wake
before the world I face
for I know that one thing it cannot take
thoughts of you are never erased

I think if you in between
every over second
some thoughts are dirty most are clean
but each one has you in it.

The Strength of our voices

loves light is reflected
in our daily choices
it can be projected
with the strength of our voices

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Comfortable, safe and warm

If home is where your heart is
then my home is with you
even apart we're never parted
our perfect love is never through

My favorite place is your sweet embrace
my shelter from the storm
The world can go about its race
I am comfortable, safe and warm

Monday, July 11, 2011

Words now written by my hand
are line now drawn in the sand
as I cross each one by one
I see more I could have done

I could have held you longer
could have loved you stronger
Could have whispered sweeter
made the bed a little neater

I see perfection in the sunrise
and set our course to chase it
a reflection mirrored in your eyes
is what I try to keep pace with

Sunday, July 10, 2011

I will live these words

I will live these words I've written here
each and everyday each and every year
from the lines inked on the page
will come the script for my  life's stage
I will love more and cherish every moment
Try harder to do the little things and not forget

The beach brings it out.

The beach brings it out in me
the feelings of love run free
the sun the sand the surf and tide
leave no place for my feeling to hide

So forgive me if I touch too much
or stand too close and stare
it is all I can do when the night is such
and filled with summer air.

The fits

Love is a size too small umbrella
bringing strangers under and together
Love is a size too large sweater
bring comfort to both snuggler and wearer

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Love offers

Love offers a firm foundation
Love offers a soul vacation
Love offers a stronger will
Love offers wheat to mill
Love offers a hand to hold
Love offers time to grow old
Love offers a safe space
Love offers a willing chase
Love offers a soft falling
Love offers a sacred calling
Love offer you to me
I accepted forever and completely

A brighter future

Its hard work
living a simple life
but you make it easy

The toil and strain
and daily strife
are lightened when your with me

I never knew a joyful tear
until the day we kissed
you took away all my fear
fulfilled my every wish

Life with you is a blessing
each day a new adventure
the pain of past is lessening
as I looked to a brighter future

Mexican Moonlight

On a clear warm night in June

I place you in the light of the Mexican moon

Drapped in silver robes and beams

I see you. My hope, my fantasy, my dreams

Standing there

Almost bear

I stop to stare

As the summer air

Stirs my heart.

Monday, July 4, 2011

lighting up the world tonight

Let our love be this night

A shining glorious light

For all the world to see

That you belong to me

Let the rhythm of the stars

Mimic that of ours

Shining and shooting bright

Lighting up the world tonight

Over time braided together

Like braided string
each one brings
dreams an hope
to the marriage rope

Woven over time
as each serve in kind
the rope grows long
beautiful and strong

If left to it's own
the trap has sown
a snare on the ground
is likely to be found

If put it ill use
this rope is a noose
strung on a lover's gallows
where feeling remain shallow

Use this rope to climb
from dark and deep designs
Use this rope pull
all the love you can lasso

This rope is meant to tie
and bind us forever
Made of our hopes and dreams
over time braided together.


Saturday, July 2, 2011

You are as this season

On a summer day
the sunshine louds
and the air sways
long and proud

The creek calls
children answer
lovers rise and fall
mimic the flowered dancer

Today was such a day
you are as this season
beckoning me to play
giving hope a reason.

Friday, July 1, 2011

Each day you pull me through

I have little more to say
as this day closes swiftly
One more time in one more way
maybe then you'll believe me

You are something exceptional
a different type, spectacular
you exceed the potential
of all human vernacular

Breadth and depth are small measures
of all you are to me
the world and all its treasures
are but a tenth of thee

You enhance the life we live
by simply being you
Each day you give and give
each day you pull me through

Makes innocent the criminal

I fell for you
and I am standing tall
what was old is new
what was big is small

I lost myself
but found even more
I returned to health
after being heart sore

Love can do miracles
you stole my heart
makes innocent the criminal
makes whole from the part

Wednesday, June 29, 2011


This boy
This girl
This joy
This world

This smile
This face
This mile
This pace

This heart
This soul
This part
This toll

This life
This plan
This wife
This man

This peace
This dove
This crease
This love

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Just how you make me feel

This love I have tasted
has left me wasted
and I cannot find the door to leave

Another round I am buying
I'll keep on trying
to catch my breath and breathe

This love I am chasing
only seems to hasten
the pace at which my heart wants to beat

I will keep moving faster
dam the disaster
I'll go out standing on my own two feet

This love I am needing
will stop the bleeding
my soul it will cause to heal

And when I am able
settled and stable
I will tell you just how you make me feel

Monday, June 27, 2011

My promise the bond

My heart is the room
and you are the view
My soul is the womb
and you are the new

My mind the race
and you are the pace
My eyes the ocean
and you rock'n motion

My life is the song
and you the signer strong
My promise the bond
for now and beyond.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I need to know

I need to know tonight
if you'll be mine all night
you make the world all right
when you hold me tight

I need to know for sure
your love'n is the cure
a medicine strong and pure
helping me to endure

Girl you should know
I think I love you
I want you to know 
that I'm thinking of you

I need to know it's cool
before I take you to school
do you want to break some rules
dive in this swimming pool

Girl you should know 
I think I love you
I want you to know
that I'm thinking of you

Saturday, June 25, 2011

She thinks the same of me.

If you only really knew
how much it is I love you
If only I had the words to say
I would tell you how I feel each day

When I wake and find you there
my heart begins a faster beat
sleep leaves my eyes as I stare
and take you in from head to feet

While away I cannot think
of anything but your face
the longer away the deeper the sink
thought of you I won't erase

When evening comes we settle in
and put the kids to sleep
this is our time for a little sin
secret's and promises to keep

I wouldn't want another life
I couldn't be more happy
I know I have the perfect wife
and I know she thinks the same of me

Our Love

Our love is a love of a lifetime

From this page to a stage

in stories to our bloodline

Our love is a love for the ages

with rhymes across times

written on stone pages

Our love is a fairy tale

with scenes and dreams

off into the sunset we sail

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Watch how high I soar

i  have done my best
 to give you all
 but I must confess
 this all seems too small

The the scale is weighed
it comes up to lighter
and I stand afraid
but stand a fighter

I'll place my best upon the scale
against offers of silver and gold
in the end my love will prevail
and have stories about it told

You deserve the best I am
and require of me still more
so take this best of this man
and watch how high I soar.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Through your eyes

Softly wish and I'll be near
to quiet all the things you fear
Hardly need to ask again
I wait at the ready to begin

Bravely ask for your heart's desire
I'll find it fast and take it higher
Shyly open your secret box
I'll place it in and set the lock

I need only to hear you ask
to preform the given task
I trust that you will use me wise
I see us in heaven through your eyes

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

It's love we share

Love lights our path
and steers our way
the shadows it cast
and dragons it slays

Love cushions our landing
and helps us to rise
our foundation for standing
our reason for tries

Love brings a special peace
and quiets our soul
it offers a sweet release
and maintains control

Love speaks clear and loud
and listens with care
it makes me so proud
that it's love we share

Monday, June 20, 2011

Ready, set, love, go

Lets go to bed early tonight

so we can stay up late

we'll trap the moonlight

and make the sunrise wait.

Alone in a world of our making

Time's pace will surely slow

Love is ours for the taking

ready, set, love, go

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Your love reflected

A salvage treasure

from the deep

my love beyond measure

is yours to keep

Only you can reach

into my heart's deep cave

your love my soul did breech

so love to you I gave.

Put this love on display

let the world see it shine

You deserve it in everyway

your love is reflected in mine.

Saturday, June 18, 2011

A helping hand

My love for you grows stronger
the longer I have you as my wife
It is the foundation on which I stand
a helping hand to live my life

Friday, June 17, 2011

Like a mighty stone

There is no impossible
in matters of the heart
Love is unstoppable
after it has its start

Like a mighty stone
rolling down a hill
love's path is it's own
love goes where it will

To catch it is to fall
to keep it is to stand
love makes fools of all
who dare to take it's hand

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I hear

I hear the sunset's whisper
as it sinks slowly out of sight
"Find your love and kiss her,
for quickly fades the light"

I hear the waves' breathing
as they draw swiftly off the shore
"Find in love the meaning
of never needing more"

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Love extends

Love can heal the wounded soul
can bring life's chaos into control
Love can mend a broken heart
tie ends together that were once apart

Love can send a signal strong
across the distance ever long
Love sees through the walls we make
Love extends its hands to shake

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

In Maryland or in Mexico

I will love you here or there
I will love you everywhere
I will love you high or low
In Maryland or in Mexico

I will love you now and then
I will love you even when
We are feeling young but really old
In Maryland or in Mexico

I will love you in in good or bad
I will love you happy or sad
I will love you with money to blow
In Maryland or in Mexico

I will love you strong and steady
I will love you at the ready
I will love you this you know
In Maryland or in Mexico

Monday, June 13, 2011

Simple Ways

Love is given is simple ways

small acts of kindness shown

A touch, or gift or words to say

my friend your never alone

Love knows a better entrance

to the heart's well guarded room

a simple seed of confidence

can grow a beautiful bloom

She continues to pour

My love it pushes me forward
to bigger and better things
I reach and reach higher
my love it gives me wings

My love it braces my standing
I fell and became taller
I have courage and strength enough
to be both bigger and smaller

My love it makes me better
each day I grow more
in love my cup over floweth
and still she continues to pour.

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Daily and Nightly

Find me and hold me
wrap me and enfold me
Lightly ever so tightly
daily and nightly

Friday, June 10, 2011

A Lasting Bound

In this love I have found my peace
by your touch my fears all cease
You hold the key to my heart and soul
my love for you my part and toll
All the love I give I receive in turn
I provide the spark, you sustain the burn
A union of souls tied in trust and love
a lasting bound on earth and above

Thursday, June 9, 2011

The one I adore

You are
more beautiful than
the sunrise and sunset on a Mexican beach
more precious than
than the brass ring i stretch to reach

more important than
the sum of days
more tempting than
any words a serpent may say

more fun than
the carnival midway in fall
more playful  than
a child with his big red ball

more sacred than
the spirit's soft voice
more free than
our chance choice

You are all these and more
You are the one I adore.

Laying Out

If I could make the perfect day
I would start by adding you
Throw in some sand along the way
and wake to a perfect beach view

Laying out we hear the surf
and settle into the sand
this is the best place on earth
here with you holding hands

Watching the sun slowly fall
I'll pull you close to me
I now right now I have it all
everything important I see.

A Family Drive

Love is what brings us together
but music makes it fun
as we drive we sing along
you and me and everyone
Taking trips is what we do
and often we have to drive
so we just crank the tunes
and sing to feel alive
Harmony is in our hearts
even if we sing off key
this is where our family starts
our kids and you and me.

Monday, June 6, 2011

A no name little town

I can love you anywhere
but I prefer a warmer climate
a secluded beach in the tropics
where we can be in private

Just the sun and the sand
and a palm tree for shade
our buns nice and tan
and some pink lemonade

Lets head down south
where the pace slows down
find ourselves in
a no name little town

Sunday, June 5, 2011

Discover our best

Let's leave this place 
for just a while
find a sunnier space
learn how to smile

Leave the world
and care behind
become the boy and girl
from a simpler time

Pack your sweet talk
and I'll grab the rest
on the beach we'll walk
and discover our best

Saturday, June 4, 2011

Let be be there for you

Let me be there for you today
in every thing and every way
make use of the man I am
to move ahead your master plan

Let me be there for you tomorrow
in all the joy and all the sorrow
a shoulder for you to lean on
a ear to lay your dream upon

Let me be there for you always
present as moon glow and sun rays
constant as the march of time
predictable as this last rhyme

Friday, June 3, 2011

The higher raod

Let the world go for a while
and take my outstretched hand
I will carry you beyond the mile
through the mountains over sand

Together we can bear the weight
the world has put upon our backs
evenly yoked and standing straight
as one we gather what's fallen slack

I will not go without you near
I will never leave you alone
In your presence I have no fear
my faith is hardened to a stone

I only ask that you'll let me
share your heavy load
and as we walk please trust me
I'll find the higher road

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Your love makes me glad

Your love lingers on my lips
as I swallow my pride
and realize all to often
I have nothing left to hide

Your love last beyond the light
as I drift off to sleep
my dream wrapped tightly
in your mansion's keep

Your love listens to my longing
as I plead my case out loud
a simple one with rhyming words
spoken above the crowd

Your love leads me lightly
as we walk hand in hand
I will help you find your way
your wish is my command

Your love leaves me laughing
as I recall the times we've had
I look forward to countless more
Your loves makes me glad.

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Falling in love is the win

We hold to the hope
that love is all we need
and then fasten the rope
to free fall at speed

We cling to the courage
that caused us to leap
from love's ledge
into love's deep

Let go on three
let this love take us in
You and I to us and we
falling in love is the win

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Let Me

Let me hold your hand tonight
Let me be your man tonight
Let me see your shape in moonlight
Let me bring you close and tight

Let me sing my heart's own song
Let me bring my voice along
Let me right where I've gone wrong
Let me find where I belong

Let me have your heart's devotion
Let me swim inside your ocean
Let me feel the same emotion
Let me stir up some commotion

Let me see what others don't
Let me help where others won't
Let me stay, let me haunt
Let me give you what you want

Monday, May 30, 2011

My heart

It is my heart that write these words each day
My hands only trace what my heart feels to say
My mind only sees as my heart points the way
My soul only voices words my heart longs to pray
My feet remain still where my heart hopes to stay
My heart is the reason I love you each day.

Sunday, May 29, 2011

A promised sealed

It seems a small thing
but it means so much
when you lean to me
and our lips touch

I remember the first
I wait for the next
a promise sealed
in love to protect

Saturday, May 28, 2011

Wife Devine

You are all I ever wanted
everything I could chose
your beauty leaves me haunted
your whisper my ghostly muse

You have all but taken me
possessed my heart and soul
I do not wish to be made free
I gladly yield control

My trust in you is made sure
when your eyes meet mine
I have in you an angel pure
a lover and wife divine

Friday, May 27, 2011

I will still love thee even in death

I will still love thee even in death
there is no end to the way I feel
when I have taken my very last breath
rest assured knowing my love is real

I'm sured I loved you before creation
and promised to find you here
kissing as we left that exulted station
to enter this mortal sphere

This life gives me time to prove my love
and share all that I have learned
for now until we return above
my heart for you alone will burn

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I thought you'd like to know

All the girls I knew before
helped me to this place
each more showed a little more
a different side of love's face

I learned it from my mother
I learned from my friends
love beats all the others
with no beginning and no end

So I lay love at your feet
and it continues to grow
you make my love complete
I just thought you'd like to know.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Colorful Girl

It didn't take me long to realize
that my favorite color in the world
is the color belonging to the eyes
of my favorite, colorful girl

I saw it from the very start
I peaked into her soul
They seem to see my true heart
they seem to take control

It should come as no surprise
that my favorite color in the world
is the color belonging to the eyes
of my favorite colorful girl

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Music alive

You are music come alive

Every step you take is a rhythm
a flawless measure of time
my heart pounds like a bass drum
when you put your hand in mine

Every word you speak a harmony
speaking straight into my soul
your voice it gets the best of me
and I lose all control

Every touch we share a love song
a timeless lyric and tune
to hear it makes my love strong
to feel makes me swoon

Play on my music incarnate
I'll sing and dance with you
even though the hour's late
my love is refreshed and new

Monday, May 23, 2011

The days I spend

The days I spend with you
though few
are my best

I want nothing more to do
then love you
I confess

I would give all my time
all my rhyme
to have you near

It's all I think of
to whisper love
into your lovely ear.

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I know the way.

Lie back tonight and lose control
give to me both body and soul
find in this that piece of mind
the restful escape of a love divine

Lay here in my open arms
and know that I will do no harm
only place a loving hand
where you want at your command

In this place it's just us two
and I will keep the night for you
to linger longer in this love
I will hold the moon above

Just to hold and have you near
is all I need to keep me here
You are safe now, let go the day
rest assured, I know the way.

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I wrote a letter.

I wrote a letter today
and that letter was "A"
it stands for :A"ll my love
I hitch a ride to the sky
and I wrote a big "I"
so you could see "I" love you from above

You are the reason
you are the why
I do the crazy things that I I do
You are the reason
the reason I try
everyday harder for you

I wrote letter two
and that letter was "U"
that say your love is "U"nreal
then I climb on a bus
to make you and me "U"s
because I wanted to see how it feels

You are the reason
you are the why
I do these crazy things everyday
You are the reason
the reason I try
to be better for you everyday.

My Christen feelings fade

I have never been selfish
with things I've been given
even those that I cherish
toward charity I'm driven

When it comes to sharing you
my christen feelings all but fade
let the world have a distant view
as we quickly make our get away

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Intersecting Paths

Our paths are different
but intersect
not so far distant
that we don't connect
I know they will converge
and in that day
our live will merge
and well walk the same way.

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

My song and love are true

I am not a rock star
but I will sing for you
and all that's in my change jar
is there for you to use

My heart carry's the tune
my voice cannot hold
a sound I howl at the moon
when I'm feeling bold

The melody is a memory
tie together over years
It is a lullaby to me
when I'm fighting back the tears

I am not a rock star
but I will sing for you
I am me because of who you are
my song and love are true

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

In your light I'm okay

Even the light of love cast shadows
and dark corners still remain
a soul may have alleyways narrow
where it hides all it's pain

Shine your love light on me
chase the pain away
although I am never free
in your light I'm okay

Monday, May 16, 2011

Love is the product

I only wish there was more love to give
more time to spend, more life to live
Forever will never be long enough show
for each day, in every way my love grows
The longer I am near you, the more I see
that love is the product of you times me

Sunday, May 15, 2011

Love remains unbroken

Love is both my power and light
My morning sun and starry night
The reason I live out each day
My purposeful walk, my measure to weigh

Love is both my strength and voice
the light and the darkness of every choice
The words I write and rhythm I sound
the channel through the muse I found

Love is both my Wife and God
the bond between us and iron rod
An eternal promise made and spoken
Love is all this and remains unbroken

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Measure one more time.

When I cannot see the line as straight
You level my feet on the path
When I can't pass through the narrow gate
you politely temper the righteous wrath

When I am not square with planning
You make the cut to align
When I am to short in the spanning
You ask me to me measure one more time

Friday, May 13, 2011

Reach me.

You are the only one who can reach me

When the distance is this great

You are the only one who can teach me

The patient I need to wait.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

Your VOice

In the distance I hear a voice
it leads me past the tempter's choice
as I approach it becomes clear
that it is you that has led me hear

Returning to our home
I know that I'm not alone
Home is where you are found
any place this world around

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Together Above

I probably would have never met you
if I hadn't done what God wanted me to
in his service I learned to love completely
so toward the end he allowed you to meet me

We have tried our best to stay the course
raising our children in his light source
Traveling onward we grow stronger
his influence on us last longer

Let us keep the path he set
Let us live so as not to forget
Let us teach his way in love
Let us find ourselves together above.

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

God given gift

I stand before you
heart in hand
knowing you see through
this shadow that I am

Love filters your eyes
you see a brighter day
hoping to share the surprise
you throw hope my way

Thank you for being you
and choosing me to be with
all I can offer is a love that's true
to combine with your God given gift

I Thought

My words have all but left me
my rhymes have lost their mates
I cannot think in rhythm tonight
and the hour is drawing late

I thought about you all day long
my love has never been so strong
so for tonight it's all right
to so sleep on and hold tight.

Loving you is easy

Loving you is easy
as natural as can be
you are the perfect girl
for a backwards kid like me

The perfect wife, perfect mom
perfect lover, angel, friend
I'm so blessed to how found you
and will love you to the end

Saturday, May 7, 2011

It's Saturday.

The sunshine break through the clouds
to find us still in bed
it Saturday and our plans allow
to place sleeping in working stead

As we linger longer in our dreams
this rest renews our souls
love is brought on sun beams
and fills the work week holes

Friday, May 6, 2011

To defend and protect

Our love is universal

A lifetime dress reversal

In that day when we rise above

We will already have known perfect love

Our love is elemental

Basic nature and consequential

It is as simple as cause and effect

A primal need to defend and protect.

This empty Vast

Receive me into your light
I cannot last another night
and this days falls fast

Let thy arm to me extend
collect my soul into your bend
hurry my love I may not last

Open your hand and let mine in
keep me safe in the hallow therein
how quickly these shadows cast

Create from our love a tower high
where both of us can safely hide
Fill thou this empty vast

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Reality Weighs

You have given my heart wings to fly
while grounding my soul to a simple way
You have lifted my spirit beyond the sky
and reminded me how much reality can weigh

Push me, pull me just take me with you
stretch me, test me just love me through

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

To live in the sunshine

To live in the sunshine
which surrounds you
be able to spend my time
I'm so happy I found you

You fill my heart with love
my life with sweet memories
You were sent to me from above
my firery half with angel's wings

Monday, May 2, 2011

In comfort sure

Let us speak in love today
allowing actions alone to say
that hearts find rest in service pure
love lives here in comfort sure

Let us lay in trust tonight
between us none but the moonlight
Sharing all we have and more
trust lives here in comfort sure

Lets us wake with joy to find
a bond far richer and sublime
in this love we have the cure
joy lives here in comfort sure

Let us pray in faith this hour
our love ascending heaven's tower
Sealed on earth in heaven secure
faith lives here in comfort sure

I yearn

When you whisper in my ear
 I get the message loud and clear.
 I may not hear your every word
 But I know what your saying, rest assured.

What is shared in soft hushed tone
 Is understood by us alone
 Echoes sounding throughout my mind
 Bounce off memories of a better time.

Lean in and softly say my name
 Then turn and I will do the same.
 The breath it takes I will return
 For this time I ever yearn

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Loosen the gears

Silence the fears that so easily beset me
Dry the tears that all too often break free
Loosen the gears that seem to never let me
love you in the way I know I can

Friday, April 29, 2011

I'm with you

It does not matter where we do
where we go or who we see
as long as this one thing's true
I'm with you and your with me

It doesn't matter where we live
my home is wherever you are
All my wealth I cannot give
because it's wrapped in your star

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Love is true

When all my words have written
and all my songs played through
the world will know that I am smitten
by no one other than beautiful you

When I finish the final chapter
place a period at the end
I will title my book Rapture
and dedicate it to you my friend

My Words and rhymes, lyrics and song
all of them speak of you
I won't last but they'll live long
to remind the world that love is true

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

My Soul's tattoo

I couldn't love another
having now loved you
as a friend a wife and lover
you are my soul's tattoo

Wing and flame
a heart with your name
a permanent mark
you've left on my heart

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I will live this love

I will live my love out loud
standing tall standing proud
Because you have chosen me
I am the best man I can be

I will live my love today
in everyplace, in everyway
My daily doings will reflect
my admiration and respect

I will live this love forever
body and spirit immortal together
I will live this love
both here and high above

Monday, April 25, 2011

My Voice

My voice is only read not heard
a choice never said, but stirred
emotion so loud it can't be spoken
a heart so proud it sure to be broken

Even echoes will eventually fade
an arrows arc surely is weighed
words in letters on printed page
loose their fetter as they age

Love that last is worth the writing
present and past to future inviting
I speak of love only in printed word
left unread and lonely and never heard

Sunday, April 24, 2011

I only

I only write love notes in ink
My only love look is a wink
I only have eyes for your beautiful face
I only exist in our shared love space

I only want everything for you
I can only do everything I can do
I only want love to fill your heart
I only want us never apart

I only wish you knew the depth
I'm wiling to go across the breadth
I only need a simple touch
I only want you very much

I only try when your the prize
I see my perfect self in your eyes
I only sing when your around
I only sow when your the ground.

Saturday, April 23, 2011

When I hear your name

Your name arrives on the wind
in my soul a fire begins
Only your touch can cool the flame
sparked in my heart when I hear your name.

Friday, April 22, 2011

10 feet off the ground

What is this feeling I have coming over me
I have never felt this way, never felt so free
Every time you touch my hand I feel it again
Every time you look my way, the feeling begins

I always want to feel the way I feel tonight
So stay with me always, never leave my side
I hope you feel the same way when I come around
Because it's hard to hold your hand when I 10 feet off the ground.

Thursday, April 21, 2011

If you need me

If you need me
I will be there
no matter how deep the crossing

Seek the truth
I will swear
words of iron forging

If you falter
I will catch
and carry you over the mountain

Find a balance
make a match
drink for the eternal fountain

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Our love will last

The memories we share
times of plenty and times of bare
but all the time we where there
together in intender care

You fill my mind
future, present and past
I know your mind
our love will last.

Tuesday, April 19, 2011


love reveals
what pride conceals
as we kneel
we heal
and feel
what's real


Monday, April 18, 2011

Love oft, Love Long

This day belongs to love
it's a  celebration of
all things lover's do
to keep their love strong and true

As the parade swiftly passes
let us all raise our glasses
a toast to love and lovers
both above and beneath the covers

The tie that binds us tightly
we defended ever mightily
Love soft, love strong
love oft, love long.

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Let me take your hand in mine

Let me place my hand in your
aide you in your daily chores
lift your spirit, give you strength
walk with you a lover's length

I can help your heart to heal
show you that love is real
save you from a world gone mad
sing you happy when your feeling sad

I can wake your sleeping dreams
harness the light of each sun beam
reflect it back for you to see
that you are so loved by me

May I enter your secret room
tend your garden and watch it bloom
watch over your every wish and hope
support your soul when you need to cope

Let me take your hand in mine
this I promise for all of time.

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Parts I lack

All I need is all of you
completely with nothing held back
All I have to offer is a love that's true
it will fill in all the parts I lack.

Friday, April 15, 2011

Higher Live

The reason the word love
rhymes with the word above
Is to help us remember the source
and know how to light the course

It is a perfect love for which we strive
given life to practice before we go live
so every mistake we must forgive
so as to learn how to higher live.

Thursday, April 14, 2011


You light the way for me
when the dark is closing in
You know just what to say to me
to drown out the deafening din

You take but give right back to me
you keep the scales in balance
You make up for the lack in me
and fill my every absence

You try your very best for me
and then again try harder
You shine above the rest to me
my love you take as barter

You live your life to be with me
you make my world turn round
You more than a wife and friend to me
you are every beat my heart sounds

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Earthbound Angel

I could tell you I love you
or I could show you the same
I can write a love so true
and say your the one to blame

I can hold your hand while walking
let you fall asleep in my arms
I can really listen when your talking
I can set off all your alarms

I can tickle your back to put you to sleep
and gently kiss you goodnight
I will go to my grave your secrets to keep
I can make everything alright

Love is the power by which I live
my guiding force, my mission
you are the one to whom I give
my earth bound angel, my vision

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

A knight none the less

My heart is too big
for this shiny suit of armor
but I knight I am none the less

Protecting the fair maiden
from a world filled with dragons
armor or not, I will do my best

Monday, April 11, 2011

Love to spare

I know your love is too hot to hold
to expensive to buy to be bartered or sold
and so you freely give it away
in the form of smiles, calls and play
I sometime wonder if there's enough for me
after a while day of giving it out free
But when I get home you are always there
with a smile and love to spare.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

At the end of the day

At the end of the day
there are no words to say
exactly How I feel

Try as I might
I can never write
anything that's close to real

Letters and rhymes
placed in rhythm and time
are a poor excuse at best

Though I try to capture
the pounding and rapture
seeing you bring to my chest

Saturday, April 9, 2011

The right thing to say

When I see our children shine
I know their more yours than mine
When I see our daily blessing increase
I know it is your share of the piece

When I am given favor in God's eyes
I know it is due to your prayerful cries
When I am given the gift of his grace
I know it is because we share this space

When I hear angles singing close to me
I know they are echoes of thee
When I hear the praise of the man
I know it because you said I can

When I pray and thank God for you
I know our love is true
When I pray to stay another day
I know it's right thing to say

Friday, April 8, 2011

I want

I want to take you out tonight
way out, past the morning light
I want to bring you home real late
sneak you through the garden gate

I want to be your only one
day and night moon and sun
I want to be your everything
fill your heart and give you wings

Thursday, April 7, 2011

I can wait for the show

You love me for who I am
but make me want to be better
You give me strength to stand
but make my knees go weaker

You show me all yourself
but remain my little secret
You allow me to be myself
but wipe my eyes when wet

You are everything to me
but still there's more to know
You are all I want to see
but I can wait for the show.

My father's voice

So many year ago
I was told by my dad
that choices have consequences
some good and some bad

So I have always tried
the best that I could
to make my choices
accepting bad and good

When I fell in love with you
I heard my fathers voice
choose the one to love
and always love your choice


Tuesday, April 5, 2011

A more perfect union

When I think of all that went into
the day that I first met you
I know that we were meant to be
together for eternity

It was heaven that brought me to you
by heaven we started anew
I thank God every day
for bring you into my way

We were meant to be tied
so I made you bride
A more perfect union are we
that's easy to see.

Monday, April 4, 2011

Lets get on with living

Lets just get to living
forget the daily grind
on with the forgiving
leave it all behind

Pack our bags and run away
grab your shorts and sandals
somewhere there is sun all day
and dinner is lit by candles

I could find a school and teach
and you a little farm
nights we find a private beach
and keep each other warm

I dream of the day that this true
a day when we pack it in
Alone with just the two of us
no where, no why no when

Sunday, April 3, 2011

The love that lives between us

The love the lives between us
is far larger than the space
that some may see as selfishness
when we're standing face to face

The love that lives between us
grows stronger every hour
as it fills with grace and forgiveness
to surround us on our tower

The love that lives between us
is an example to the world
a shining beacon of peacefulness
is held by boy and girl

The love that lives between us
is a shelter from the storm
a fortress built of tenderness
a comfort to keep us warm

The love that lives between us
keeps us anchored in heavens bay
where we can joy in hopefulness
and bask in the light of his way.

Saturday, April 2, 2011

I was made to love you

I could never love another
the way that I love you
I know you as a wife a friend and lover
a trust strong and bond true

If I were to live forever
and search my life as long
I know that there shall never
be another love this strong

I was made to love you
take me at my word
I speak of love in full view
my best remains unheard.

Friday, April 1, 2011

Gathering what's sown

Share with me your heart completely
trust it in my care
though storms assail I'll never fail thee
or loose the gift you gave to bear

Share your life with me forever
stay thou near my side
I will keep thy pace and tire never
match you stride for stride

Share your soul with me and heaven
your sinful thoughts on me lie
to find perfection is to be forgiven
so together we shall fight and try

Share your touch with me alone
embrace my every part
spend a life gathering what's sown
and place them in our heart

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Your Smile

There is a line on your face
which time did not place
whose presence is traced
back to God's very grace

From this line I define
my own piece of mind
spending most of my time
to have it incline

When the ends are high so am I
your face takes on a glow
I'm always sure to ask you why
so I can repeat the show

Its the occasions when
it downward bends
I try to make amends
so it isn't a trend

As the corner of your lips rise
they lift my spirit to the sky
I hope one day you'll realize
your smile is my heart's supply

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Making a living is getting in the way of life

I want to make my life with you
but everyday I am pulled away
from 9 to 5 the whole week through
making a living just gets in the way

Can't someone hire me to love you
I'd gladly work the overtime
let my days off simply accrue
up the corporate ladder I'd climb

They would always find me busy
and focused on my task
I'd say stuff like, "in a jiffy"
and "All you have to do is ask"

My only to do is loving you
it is my passion in this life
and when I retire to review
I'll still have you as my wife.

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Polish my heart

The current of your love swiftly flows
polishing my heart of stone
craving out canyons it seems to know
where I feel the most alone

Monday, March 28, 2011

You stole my heart

I only have one question
keep your answer brief
I do not want your confession
I already know you're a thief

I caught you in the act
of stealing my heart away
I'm not asking for it back
you save it for a rainy day

You must need it really bad
probably more than me
seeing you with it makes me glad
and that's all I need to breathe

Be careful, because it broke before
it's not as strong as I seems
I'll never loose it again, I swore
until I find the girl from my dreams

So take it with you always
keep near your own
from now until the end of days
you will never be alone.

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Your SOng

I will write you a love song
and when it is finished I'll sing it out loud
a tune from out the encroaching throng
a melody to part the hapless crowd

All will fall silent
as a single note rings out
bring peace to the violent
as back up angles shout

I love this women
and I want the world to know
my vows to her rest unbroken
my love as pure as snow

I love being by her side
together forever are we
This is the best ride
an endless road I see

This is my song to you this eve
and every day here on
kiss me now so I can breath
and get on with singin your song.

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Pen to paper

Pen to paper
we'll write a letter
in a language all our own
between you and I alone

Pic to string
a song we'll sing
with lyrics and time
that's your and mine

Scene to play
we'll act a way
a dialogue unspoken
a trust never broken

Memories to life
as husband and wife
we'll create a few
just me and you.

Friday, March 25, 2011

Be mine

Be mine and only mine
For now and the rest of time
Be you that perfect you
That makes our love true.

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Let me take you dancing

Let me take you dancing
in the moonlight's glow
a little after hours romancing
a little fast a little slow
Let the rhythm of our hearts
beat loud in double time
as the nightly music starts
I'll join your heart and mine

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Step out of the glow

By the street light of love I see you
all else is lost in shadow
I accept you at face value
as you step from out the glow

And even when my eyes adjust
to a love far more bright
I still see the one I trust
to take me home at night

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Your Secret Garden

Let me in your secret garden
I will not tell a soul
release your gated guardsman
accept my heart as toll

Lead me round your flowered paths
let me pick a few
before I do I'll be sure to ask
and then present them to you

Find a shady place to rest
lock your dreams to keep
lay your head on my chest
and slowly fall asleep

Let me in, I will leave no trace
and when asked be on my way
I know that this is scared space
so your kindness I won't betray

Monday, March 21, 2011

All I have left to give

Here is my heart and soul
I leave them in your care
I cannot face the world alone
I was hoping we could share

I will only use them to love you
for that is why I live
do with them as you want to
they're  all I have left to give

I trust them in your gentle hands
my love is in yours alone
here I am and here I stand
with you I'll make my home

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Up for the task

If I could live this day again
I would start by kissing you
my days just go better when
I start with a cup of you brew

Then I would make more time
to help you with your list
I would make your task mine
command me as you wish

When the night finally came
I'd knee in pray and ask
may tomorrow be just the same
and may I be up for the task

Saturday, March 19, 2011

A big bouncy ball of emotion

Love is a big bouncy ball of emotion

sometimes high and sometimes low
no matter what it's always in motion
and hard to tell where it might go
small in size but a powerful force
loves can brings us hours of fun
chasing to catch it in its course
Love can be a tricky one
Love is ready no matter place or time
we should always have it close
show me yours and I'll show you mine
lets go see you has the best throw

Friday, March 18, 2011

Plant and weave

Plant my love into your heart
give it place, make it a part
nourished by your tender care
it can grow and blossom there

Soon you'll find the fruit it bears
is most delicious and beyond compare
A piece to serve your every need
a never ending magic seed.

Weave my love into your life
intertwined as man and wife
tie the thread and loop it round
until it bring a comfort sound

Find warmth under its cover
wrap it tight, you'll need no other
Pass it down through generations
made with heart and soul and patience.

Thursday, March 17, 2011

The stars aligned

The stars aligned
and you came into my life
the heavens showed me a sign
so I made you my wife

Everyday after
has been a dream
filled with work and laughter
a union...a team

I am on your side
and I know you have my back
We can fight or hide
retreat or attack

As long as you're with me
I'm getting closer to fine
a shared and common history
our life's intertwined

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

My greatest prize

I love you with every beat of my heart
with every breath that take in and out
both of which slow when we are apart
leaving my will to carry on in doubt

Not a moment goes by without the thought
of how nice it would be to have you near
efforts to work are found at naught
getting home to you is my mission clear

Hold me in your arms and never let me go
leave the world to it's own device
Loving you is all I need to know
and I count that as my greatest prize.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

The only thrill I seek

Loving you is the only thrill I seek
in that effort I shall never grow weak
I will pursue that end all my days and breath
and continue to perfection after my mortal death

Monday, March 14, 2011

Ever beyond

Feel my breath upon your skin
allow your mind to dream and wander
Forget the gravity of the world you live in
float on as thoughts of love you ponder

Feel my hand as I pull your near
allow your knees to weaken
lean onto my chest let go your fear
find rest in love's safe beacon

I will harbor your soul this evening
no storm will loose my bond
filled with love as you lay breathing
I will carry you and this love ever beyond

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Your perfect arrow

With just the love we share between us
we see each other and feel to give
nothing hidden in this our nakedness
nothing held back, nothing to forgive

We only see each other in this light
the good and bad are reflected shadows
take me as I am this night
pierce my heart with your perfect arrow

Saturday, March 12, 2011

My feelings fonder

By the time you read this poem
I will be on my way home
this absence has my feelings fonder
await my return from the wild yonder

Friday, March 11, 2011

I don't

I don't know much
but this I do
when we touch
my soul renews

I don't do alot
but this I can
to hold what I got
I'll be a better man

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Finding my way back to you

Baby while you sleep tonight
dream of me and hold on tight
keep that dream alive as morning breaks

Believe me when I say it's true
all I do is think of you
and I am going to do whatever it takes

To make sure that you feel my love
it'll warm you op like the sun above
give you the rest so really need

My love true my love is strong
my love is what wrote this song
I follow it wherever it might lead

Because I know it will bring me home
no matter how far I have to roam
my love will always find it's way back to you

So think me near when you need a lift
this love I offer as a gift
I hope it's enough to always see us through

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

My heart string

Tie my heart string round your finger
to help you  keep in mind
the love I have is deep and lingers
from beginning to past the end of time

Hold my heart string tight and don't let go
I will follow where you lead
my love for you is all I  know
it satisfies my every need

Tie my heart string up with yours
collect it where it fallen slack
bound together we will open doors
and never want to look longing back

Lay my heart string on your chest
may it be all the weight you need to bear
I will do my part to balance the rest
and meet your daily need or care

Take my heart string to your grave
for in that day my rhythms cease 
Standing guard, all storms I'll brave
ensuring that you rest in peace.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

If I ever lost this love

If I ever lost this love
I would retrace my way
try to climb above
to see a long gone day

Hoping to find just where
I stepped into the wrong
and in that moment there
change to sing a new song

My life would be on hold
until I was back in grace
racking the memory of my soul
until I see your face

Hold my hand and make sure
I never loose your favor
My intentions are always pure
it's my salt that looses savor

Monday, March 7, 2011

Forever with you in laughter

You give me pause to think
when you look at me that way
I need to know what that wink
was really trying to say

I need to know what is behind
the devilish grin you grin
could it be you'd like to find
a little time for a little sin

I cold spend the rest of my days
reading the writing on your face
and all the while I'd be finding ways
to once again  lift that vail of lace

From the start
you've owned my heart
and I am happily ever after
Lost in your gaze
the rest of my days
forever with you in laughter

Sunday, March 6, 2011

No one has to know

Rock my soul to sleep tonight
Roll me up in your love so tight
don't never let me go

Save me from the world outside
give me space in your heart to hide
no one has to know

Saturday, March 5, 2011

No better way to live

Your kiss is the key to open my heart
place your lips on mine and tilt
I feel the turning start
tumbling down the walls I have built

I love others because I love you
you have opened my world to light
I never knew that love could be so true
until we kissed by the river that 1st night

I see my place and I want you there
to receive all the love I can give
It all begins with a kiss and a care
there is no better way to live

Friday, March 4, 2011

I will give myself to thee

I will honor you as a princess
out of royal blood you are
maybe not here and now
but somewhere beyond the star

Only heaven itself could have you
and send you to the place
to teach and live a love so true
a guardian with a angel's face

I see through the mortal mask
to the princess you were and will be
you have only but to ask
and I will give myself to thee

Thursday, March 3, 2011

Light reflected

The light reflected in your eyes
brings out my better side
you see the truth instead of lies
you see myself no chance to hide

In the light of your loving stare
I am found to be strong
because of your tender care
it seems I can do no wrong

Watch me then as I come near
open your arms and soul
see me then perfectly clear
as only you can know.

Sunset. Sunrise

By the light of the setting sun
we are found side by side
we are seen as one
as leveling light and shadow collide

Rising up before the dawn
still side by side are we
shadows apart yet holding on
in full light there's you and me

As sure as the sun set will rise
I will be there for you
the morning bird, the lullabies
sing of a love that's true

The economy of l;ove

In the economy of love
two souls become one heart
whose influence is global
and only in giving does it increase

Managed from above
in faith connections start
strong as well as mobile
the greatest seen as least.

Love in full view

This days draws to an end
the sun to the moon now bends
darkness falls, dreamland calls
I knee in prayer for you

Soon I'll see your face
we'll assume the same space
smiles wide, nothing to hide
our love in full view

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Unbroken trust

Safely encircled in arms of love
despite the distance between us
our faith a hope a statement of
a unseen, and unbroken trust

I long to have you here with me
to see and touch your face
until the time when together we'll be
I'll keep a warm safe space

Think of me as you lay lone
try and picture me there
send the key to heart you own
and he will answer our prayer

The heart of a friend.

Only the shadow of your ghost remains
as I lay down alone again tonight
my soul burns with  untamed flames
and hopes of someday soon holding you tight

This presence I feel around me
I know belongs to you
I submit, and it enslaves me
it all I have left to do.

Return your love to this place
and never leave again
Locked away in a sacred place
here in the heart of a friend

Friday, February 25, 2011

Send a prayer to heaven

Send a prayer to heaven
know that it's been heard
all you stand in need of
kept safely word by word

Give me charge and I will keep
all the wolves at bay
whisper softly to the sky
the words you cannot say

I will catch them as they rise
present them at the gate
I will be the messenger
and carry all thy weight

Halo forged in fire

My love she is an angel
her halo forged in fire
she keeps watch ore the line
of all my righteous desire

God himself has placed her there
and given her the power
to let both good and evil
into my ivory tower

She keeps a careful watch
and guards my every move
A sentry at my defense
Until the day I prove

My love she is an angel
her halo forged in fire
she keeps watch ore the path
that leads me ever higher

The Plan

the plan is for us to be
together for all of eternity
so if on earth we"re far apart
nothing can break the bind of heart

Miles and distance are mortal constraints
and only her and now complaints
our love reaches past the seas
that now separate you and me

Borders and papers cannot keep
our dreams apart as we sleep
This I know and you should too
nothing can keep my love from you

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Wish you back home

the longer we stay apart
quickens the pounding of my heart
shortens the surface of my breath
hastens the coming of my death

I cannot live without you here
and choose to turn a deafening ear
to those who say it won't be long
and that I need stay strong

You are the only part of me
that I am proud to let others see
without you I am naked and alone
no place to rest or to call home

So I will wait for your safe return
my soul's candle will slowly burn
hoping that I have the strength
to wish you back home at length

Non Sense

I her absence I try to make sense
but nothing rhyming and my rhythm lost timing
she has taken the poetry away from me
only in her presence does any of this make sense

Sunday, February 20, 2011

I'll stay awake

Somewhere on a beach tonight
out of reach and out of sight
my love is laying down to sleep
our goodbye kiss alone to keep

I hope that she thinking of me
as she stares across the sea
and wishes that we were closer
she and I, her rhyme composer

As she soaks the sunlight rays
hears the crashing of the waves
I hope her heart finds a time
to beat along with the rhythm of mine

If we have to be apart this week
I'll hold her heart and kiss her cheek
with every shallow breath I take
never sleeping, I'll stay awake

Saturday, February 19, 2011

You are Mine

I cannot make a wish come true
or stop the world and melt with you
I cannot keep the night from falling
or stay death's hand when he comes calling

If I can but make you smile
have you forget the world a while
Take my hand a think me strong
Feel you are living our love song

Then my dear my job is done
you now know you're the only one
My love may not be able to stop time
but it will you let know that you are mine

Friday, February 18, 2011

A deeping Blue

Thank you for your kindness
it makes all the difference
I always know I can count on you
bring me out of a deepening blue

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I will try again

I will try again tomorrow
and again until it's right
to remove myself from sorrow
and step forward into light

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

A good year

This last year
I have conquered some fears
shed happy and sad tears
made my pathway more clear
been kicked in the rear
found a better way to steer

and found you always near
for that alone it's been a good year

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Each Day

the hour is drawing late
I cannot help but sleep
freed from the day's weight
as dreams my feet sweep

I dream of me and you
and think it can't be better
as I wake i know it's true
each day that we're together

Monday, February 14, 2011

Never my love

I do not need a holiday
to say the words that lovers say
With you in my life that's everyday
I live those words in every way

Let others buy cards and gifts
flowers by the dozen
Tomorrow their focus shifts
while mine is still on love'n

I'll take today and add a year
and love you all throughout
Never worry , never fear
never my love will you doubt.

Sunday, February 13, 2011

For a brief second today I caught your eye
and saw eternities view
I thank God and never ask why
he let me end up with you

I do believe a higher power
led us to be together
Falling high from a lofty tower
safe in this marriage tether

I hope you see in me
what it is I see in you
a vision of a happy eternity
surrounded by family and you

Saturday, February 12, 2011

The art of love

Like a great work of art
love is created from the heart
like the orchestral score grand
love is conducted through the hands

Love by its nature is never complete
but strives toward perfection as it repeats
Love is never finished growing
but finds new homes in the seeds it's sowing

I will write love a poem
by making heaven at home
I will sing love a song
by forgiving a wrong
I will paint a love picture
by longing to be with her
I will create love's masterpiece
by thinking of myself least

Friday, February 11, 2011

Well Worn

The soles of my shoes
match the soul of my love
well worn but a perfect fit

Like a hand in a glove
my spirit in flesh
I love more than I admit.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Love knocks

Let love lay where it falls
lend an ear to hear its calls
find forgiveness in its wake
bring it in for heaven's sake

Shield love from the pending storm
invite it in and keep it warm
feed it even your last bread
join it with your garments thread

Treat love as an honor guest
that it may stay your home to bless
give love all you have and more
when it knocks upon your door.

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

My equal measure

Collect my soul unto your heart
keep it safe and sound
Dry my tears before they start
may they never touch the ground

Keep me ever near you
in your mind and prayers
watch over all that I do
for I am nearly there

You are my only safe rest
my only solace from grief
lift the weight from off my chest
bring me sweet relief

My strength is failing fast
hold my dreams till dawn
give me one last cast
and then I must move on

In time I will return this way
bearing precious treasure
all for you because today
you were my equal measure

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Thoughts of you

thought left alone unintentionally
will continue build till eventually
there is no brain room left vacant
and so they grow increasingly impatient
wanting only to be seen or heard
to be voiced or to become a word
Rattling and fighting just to get out
to save me from my thoughtless drought

These thoughts that grow inside my brain
are so loud at times I go insane
until I'm able to right them down
in verse and rhyme, as verb and noun
I give them life and set them free
so they can stop tormenting me

The only thoughts I won't let go
are thoughts of you, I let them grow
these thoughts I think everyday
I hope they never go away
They keep me sane when I think I'm not
thoughts of you are my favorite thoughts.

Monday, February 7, 2011

You fill my mind

You fill my mind
thoughts in rhyme
spill out in ink
as I think
of you
The page fills up
as my cup
from head to toe

Sunday, February 6, 2011

The Perfect Kiss

eternal truth
secret of youth
whispered hushed
cause to blush
gentle hand
valiant stand
river's course
guiding force
Love is all this
wrapped into  the perfect kiss

Saturday, February 5, 2011

Giving love a chance

Giving love a chance
to win your heart
means letting romance
have a head start

What can be sealed
with a lover's kiss
is often revealed
only when missed

My best foot in my mouth
is how I prefer to stand
facing north but feeling south
the shadow of my hand

Friday, February 4, 2011

Face to Face

Caught up in your love
I can not speak or think
enjoying the moment of
the attraction as you wink

Call me over to your side
and I will keep the pace
matching you with every stride
staying close and face to face

Thursday, February 3, 2011

The light by which we walk

Love is the light by which we walk
hand and hand as husband and wife
The common language we choose to talk
to share this experience called life.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Make you my life

I try in vain to explain
what it is between us
there are no rhymes and never enough time
to really say how I feel

I try every day to show and say
what I know is true inside
even in this I tend to miss
falling short of real

Love me for my efforts, as I continue to court
you as my blushing wife
Know that I am trying, inside dying
to make you my life

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

My sure foundation

You make the world seem small
when it is knocking on my door
you make me feel 10 feet tall
like I can give a little more

It is for you I try my best
in everything I do and say
with you I forget the rest
look forward to a brighter day

Stay then near my side
never leave me lone
be thou my ever bride
my sure foundation of stone.

Monday, January 31, 2011

I may not win but I will fight

It seems I am never to reach the shore
never to stand on solid ground
a mile closer reveals a mile more
only ocean between me and safely sound

How many time will I let you down
before you fall no more
how long before I am to drown
as these tears wash over the floor

I may not win but I will fight
and hope your heart can wait
Every morning through every night
praying always it's not too late

Sunday, January 30, 2011

A life devout

A simple faith and tenderness
can overcome the mounting mess
caused by selfishness and pride
giving love a cause to hide

As we rid ourselves of pride
leave the world locked outside
our hearts will turn to one another
husband, wife, partner, lover

Love is a cure for all that ails
a weight that balances all the scales
what we put in we're sure to get out
nothing wasted, a life devout

Saturday, January 29, 2011

A loving kind

Love is found in moments
strung together with hope
one attaching to the other
shared memories as rope

Begun with a single knot
making one from two
weaving dreams togehter
that's what love can do

Tie me up in this love
strengthen the cords that binds
String me along in this life
with memories of a loving kind

Friday, January 28, 2011

Hear my soul

There is none that could replace the space you hold in my heart
There is none that can assume the room I gave you from the start

There is not another girl in the world to whom I fallen so completely
not another spirit that could hear it, the call of my soul so sweetly

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Finding love

I could find myself lost in this love
many are the pathways there
with no way to look from up above
I'm lost in this maze with no sense of where

Every direction leads to your heart
every step your love I find
there are no dead ends only starts
there is no limit on my finding time

I prefer to take this walk with you
enjoying the journey as I go
I never want it to concluded
may my steps be ever slow

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Poetry in motion

I will put my poetry in motion
send it out across thw ocean
in search of the right words to say
to bring your love around my way

Words with rythum and with rhyme
Words that have no place in time
Words that translate into action
Words that bring a satisfaction

I will search both high and low
there is no place i will not go
To bring these words back home to you
To tell you that my love is true

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I am not the man you think I am

I am not the man you think I am
but I am the one you hoped for
The man inside your master plan
who is everything you want and more.

Dare to dream and I am sure you'll see
this man and I are the same
You were born to be with me
to share a common name

I will try to do me best
to live up to your ideal
Focus on love forget the rest
give in to how you feel.

Monday, January 24, 2011

I will live like I write

I am done with this rhyme
and now it is time
to live the verse I write

To show you how much
I long for your touch
to have you close at night

I will give you all I have to give
be the reason you have to live
and never leave your side

I will be the man you want and need
be your all and everything
be a source of pride

I will live how I write
from morning to night
be your waking dream

And when the night falls
I'll break down the walls
and carry you uo on moon beams.

Sunday, January 23, 2011

His light of love

You were his before you were mine
and so I have him to thank
for raising you up and spending time
placing his love in your heart's bank

You wouldn't be the one I know
if it weren't for his tender care
So when you ask if you can go
I will always send you there

I can share your love him
and send mine along too
his light of love will never dim
The both us have all love for you.

Saturday, January 22, 2011

A service rendered

Let me hold your hand
let me understand
when words between us fail
may love lift the vail

Listen to my heart
as spoken by my eyes
in love is where we start
removing our silent disguise

If you speak you mind
know I will be kind
an in return speak mine
a service rendered in kine

Friday, January 21, 2011

My Jill

My Jill
I will
Be true
to you

My girl
my world
I live
I give
for you
I do

My love
high above
our aim
love's flame

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Common Ground

Let love then be our common ground
as we both reach out to grasp
As a keystone keeps the arch's arc
bending to love our hands will clasp

Giving way to let love live
through our words and deeds
relying on a strong shared strength
to meet and exceed the other's needs

If love is kept between us
our path becomes clear and straight
Growing and learning in this life
marching forward to heaven's gate

Flowing thoughts

Thoughts like water flow
from the fountain head that is you
you are all I need to know
to write of love that's true

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

For True love's sake

I try to think of you before I go to sleep
in the hope these thoughts my mind will keep
As I dream I see you there
on your horse riding the air
In the moment happy and free
arms out stretched to receive me

I try to think of you while awake
that this dream may be real for true love's sake

Monday, January 17, 2011

An already perfect wife

It is never as easy as these rhymes make it seem
often not the fantasy, sometimes not the dream
But your love is worth any price
so for me there is no sacrifice
The return I receive for loving you
is why I do the things I do
I am better for having you in my life
A more perfect husband of an already perfect wife

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Anytime with you is great

Anytime with you is great
just hanging out
or staying up late

It doesn't matter to me what we do
as long as I am
doing it with you

Fancy or simple, as long as your there
feast or famine
I really don't care

You are what I am about
so we can stay at home
or we could go out

Being with you is my favorite place
no matter where in the world
time or space.

Saturday, January 15, 2011

You are my favorite stuff

You are still my favorite stuff
in a world filled with distraction
you are my one true attraction
One of which I can't get enough

Gadgets have lights and sounds
but they can't hold a candle
it's you I'd rather handle
when the sun goes down

You are all I really need
the rest is just fluff
You are still my favorite stuff
I want more of you in deed.

Friday, January 14, 2011

Let's build a life together

Lets build a life together
one that is sure to last
A shelter from stormy weather
built upon a common past

Memories both good and bad
are the bricks we'll use
Lessons both happy and sad
the mortar by which they are glued

By the sweat of our brow
we build this life
never quite knowing how
but working hard as husband and wife

Thursday, January 13, 2011

That's how perfect you are

Each day I try to find some time
to close my eyes and clear my mind
and wait till my soul levels at peace

In that moment I think of you
and all the things you daily do
to make me better and extend my reach

You are both the quiet and storm
both the fire's light and warmth
You both hold and surround me

You are as the fall and spring
my dying gasp and life's breathing
You are everything I see

Like ripples need stone
I need you alone
Extending out ever far
that's how perfect you are.

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

You and I

Together we're unstoppable
daring to do the impossible
Because we share a common trust
there is no barrier we can't bust

As we take on our piece of the world
hand in hand, boy and girl
Our forces in love united
together standing and never divided

Love will conquer all at length
and that alone is our strongest strength
You and I are the greatest pair
trust, and heart and love to spare

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Take comfort in my love

When your daily deeds have made you tire
come and rest by the warmth of my fire
When the world's grown dark and you feel the same
come enjoy the glow of my burning flame.

When it all too much and you need to rest
come lay your weary head on my heart filled chest
and when you think you can take it no longer
take comfort in love, as it gives it grows stronger

Monday, January 10, 2011


You make it easy
Easy to love you
Easy to want you
Easy to think you
Easy to flaunt you
Easy to thank you
Easy to kiss you
Easy to bank you
Easy to miss you
Easy to watch you
Easy to need you
Easy to catch you
Easy to read you
You make it easy

Sunday, January 9, 2011

I know you can

Drive on dreaming
believing that I can
Ford ahead in faith
trusting who I am

Have hope
I will always be here
Find faith
I listen and hear

Live love
and fall again
Stand strong
I know you can

Saturday, January 8, 2011

I tend to write

You are my whole world
and love is where I'm from
Faith is my foundation
and Hope my humble home

Our love will last forever
but today I want to show
how great we are together
and that I love you so

I tend to write of love's reflection
with eyes that see eternity
Understand, it's that perfection
I seeking daily to build in me.

Friday, January 7, 2011


Forever you
Forever me
No longer two
Forever we

Forever prayer
Forever high

Always there
Forever try

Forever breath
Forever love
After death
Forever above

Thursday, January 6, 2011

The trouble I am in

I blame you for all the trouble I am in
because loving you is my favorite sin
It can't feel this right
without being so wrong
when these flames ignite
they burn fast and long

I will not change my ways
I will not confess this sin
I will love you all my days
and thank God for the trouble I am in

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Raging Ink

Words of passion flow
as raging ink
covering this rampage
as of you I think

Rhymes and verses ignite
as roaring fire
burning this ambush
as love's ashes fly higher

As I write
I am consumed
thinking you close
as love fills the room

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

When I close my eyes

When I close my eyes
I see your face
and I am taken
to a sacred place

My soul is carried
back in time
when I first asked you
to be mine

I see the bank we sat upon
I here the swift creek
I see us holding hands
and I gently kiss your cheek

This place is special
its where we got our start
when I close my eyes I see it
and feel you in my heart

Monday, January 3, 2011

I feel I haven't caught you yet

Even after all this time
I feel I haven't caught you yet
Even after all these rhymes
this is still the feeling I get

I set about to win your heart
and tried my very best
but you had such a head start
that I can never rest

If I am to have you
all my days and nights
I must conquer, I must do
All I know is right

One day you will be mine
completely and whole
For now I'll take the time
you so graciously have sold

Sunday, January 2, 2011

It's you

If I could hold you all night long
and sing to you my simple song
I think that you would understand
that it's you who makes me what I am

It's you that makes the sun rise
to get me through my day
It's you who still acts suprize
When I can't find the words to say

It's you who still believes I can
when others say I won't
It's you and your simple plans
that never have a don't

It's you who keeps the dark night
from taking my soul away
It's you who holds so desperate tight
until the break of day

It's you I love for all you are
and all you give to me
It's you who shines like a star
leading me to where I need to be

Saturday, January 1, 2011

The shadow of your love

Your love is my protection
from a world that does not care
Your love is my safe place
too lock away my share

Your love is my direction
always leading me here
Your love is my inner space
a whisper in my ear

Your love is my soul's quest
the end to all my means
Your love is my simple verse
sung to please my queen

Your love is what I love best
my masterpiece in life
Your love my waiting herse
to remove me from this strife

As the sun beats down from high above
I am safe and sheltered in the shadow of your love
