For Love’s Sake
  Inside us all resides the power of love. But we never really use it. We use the word in our expression of an emotion. But loves full potential is often not fully known. The heart when challenged in this arena of emotions Often collapses as many other responses surface. But love is usually the last to be called, if called at all.   Deep inside us resides the power of love. And today, we should ask the heart How to show and use this love that waits patiently there. We can face a singular circumstance and call it up And its arrives as a soft smile – Share it! The heart will beat faster as this love pours forth. It will cause you to catch your breath. The one who needs this expression of love waits And your joy in sharing will take you To a place of ecstasy, with the shared kiss.

Holding Hands
HOLDING HANDS   When you held my hand, it brought me so much joy. Your clasping fingers sent a strong message of Your clasping fingers sent a strong message of security, s if you were putting an invisible cloak around me. It would pull me closer to your side. I could feel the strength of your stride While following the directions to my wrist. Move left or move right, now a quick motion that says Let’s stop for a moment and let this throng go by. Pulling me close now, we move into a sheltering doorway, Into a warming embrace. My hand is free now and feeling so small. In your eyes I see the thought I felt in our clasped fingers. You are mine you said. And my eyes joyfully replied, Yes, I am yours. Now, as our quiet moment ends, We take each other’s hand And stride on with the throng Because, when we are hand in hand, There’s nothing that can go wrong.

A Girl
There will always be a girl, whether she is good or bad, she will be there. Just on the outskirts of his mind, not waiting, just being a memory, presenting pictures of times good or bad gone by. Lessons to re-enact, questions to be put to rest by his answers. never detrimental, observed in the right light She becomes his silent muse. she scolds, admonishes, tease, tickles and encourages. she can be a reminder of his best or worst. When he is in need of a reminder that you are his life. yes, she is there for that mostly. Remind yourself of the attributes you are lacking. can you make some changes that will be the way to pull him back from those thoughts of her? A figment of the imagination cannot compete with your exquisite personality. daring to eliminate those pesky feelings of jealousy will certainly help you to shine. You will both find a new place to begin looking at each other again. a girl in every man’s mind will diminish. her memory WILL fade… only if you stay true to keeping you on his mind. by kind words, soft kisses, the occasional I love you and a […]
