Each night when I am dreaming
I tenderly think of loving you Embracing every joyful moment For I love everything you do My nightly dreams are very serene As my heart drinks of tender bliss Finding my mind easily swept away During the times we share a kiss It is such a very beautiful moment Each night my mind begins to dream Of your lovely image alive within Reminding me you are my everything And with the new day's dawning I'm never sad as my dream fades Because I know as I open my eyes Your love's reality always stays.
A poem for my wife!
Where have all our beautiful flowers gone
Each so very special in their own way Where have all our young flowers gone Why has this world’s evil taken them away Where have all our young flowers gone Oh Lord, we miss them in so many ways And it's hard to accept the reason they left As our grief overwhelms us so much today For our souls are broken in many, many pieces While our hearts are deeply wrought with pain We know from this moment forward in our lives Nothing in our world will again be the same Where have all our little flowers gone to Though it may seem they are now far away The jewels of our lives are still very near For in our hearts, their smiles brightly stay Even as our hearts deeply weep for all of them In all their faces an angel’s smile, we'll see Knowing our Lord has embraced each one lovingly Giving their spirits the blessing of heavenly gain.

My world was touched by his hand
And its loneliness was chased away Into my world entered such happiness And a greater need for his love to stay He taught me to love all of mankind Also to love His father first of all Promising me if I did all these things Never hard would ever be my fall He filled my heart with a believing faith Which he promised I could always keep He told me not to ever doubt again As he would always be on call for me He gave to me many sweet treasures That to others he allowed me to share He promised that even while I slept That his love would always be near.
Why is it each time I see you
I fall in love all over again Why is it when I embrace you Loves fires will begin again Why is it each time I kiss you I want to hold you much more Why is it when I'm near to you Of one thought I am quite sure I need you like the grass the rain Or the sky above the soft clouds For without your love in my life I would not know what loves about I only know each moment I see you I will fall in love all over again And when I reach out to touch you The flames of love will still begin.
I knew you were someone special
When I first saw your smile today I knew because the way you smiled In my life, you would have to stay Filling my world with the loveliness Which I greet daily when I see you I found my heart deeply falling And my mind knew not what to do I had to try to find new ways That would get you to notice me I wanted to get closer to you So my presence you would need I had to convince you, darling In my world, you had to stay I found each night as I slept Your image would never fade I knew what I was praying for Hoping you would grow a need To have me close to you in life And you too would dream of me Many new things start to happen As one begins to fall in love I say I find many pleasurable emotions Since my eyes saw you that day What I embrace now I find I need To fill my life in so many ways As love continues to grow I know Your reality of love will never fade. (April 1977)
True love blossoms into forever pearls
Polished by eternity's lasting kiss Moments that started within a tiny dream Lay on a foundation that will always last As separate hopes and dreams now become one Never having to struggle alone again Two inspired hearts both took a leap of faith For a life of love that will never end And as we reach for the others warm embrace Our lips still meet sharing a tender kiss We find that as time has gently passed How our union has become so truly blessed For we were always meant to be Forever living by the others side While our love has kept us so very close Tied together where eternity lies.
Written for my 30th Wedding Anniversary
My heart embraces you daily
As your smile sweeps me away And I am now as always Of your love a willing ***** It does not take much to please me For it's very easy when it comes to you You provide such simple pleasures With everything you say and do I try each day not to ever think about How my life would surely be If I spent it alone without your love Right here so very close to me So I speak each day in silent prayer To my God who has blessed me so Who graced my life daily with your tender love Making it a treasure I will not let go.
