the stars…
and I
never felt we had a chance
you make us shine

giving love
so deep and pure
my heart sometimes skips,
sometimes trips,
over fears
and wasted worries
you make it shine

I love you
not with words
and empty promises
but with life.
and I live that love
in breathless wonder
as you…
make it shine…

Forever Valentine


Forever Valentine

I see you in the distance
and I long to kiss your smile
it’s such an empty feeling
when you leave me for a while
I never thought of love as something
needed to survive
but I don’t want to see another day
without your eyes…

you’re gentle and you’re thoughtful
and there’s sunshine in your face
excitement by the minute
you’re my leather and my lace
my solid wall for leaning
that I’ve grown accustomed to
and I don’t want to live another sunset
without you…

if I could ever find the words
to paint this picture right
I’d write them in the stars above
and whisper them at night
for you have been the reason
for this flowing heart of mine
my perfect love, from God above..
forever valentine…

If You Were My Valentine


If You Were My Valentine

If you were my valentine
I’d search the endless skies
to find the perfect starlight
that would compliment your eyes
and keep it in a wishing well
created just for you
and filled with my desires
to make all your dreams come true

if you were my valentine
I’d find the softest rose
to gently brush against
those sweetest lips, the angels chose
my heart is like a flower
craving for your morning kiss
mere words cannot pay homage
to a passion such as this

if you were my valentine
I’d treasure every day
the arms that open to me
and the tender words you say
I can’t imagine dreaming
of another soul so sweet
for, if your were my valentine
my life would be complete…
