I want to be…

black-and-white-1031639_960_720

I want to be the girl

Who makes you want to live for tomorrow

As you begin each new day

I want to be the difference

Who brings meaning to your life

Whenever you have doubts

I want to be the pages

You look forward to reading

As you sip your morning coffee

I want to be the one

Who causes your heart to skip a beat

Every time we’re together

I want to be the only person

Your heart longs for

When you look up at the stars at night

I want to be the joy

Which fills your life

And cause endless smiles to brighten your face

I want to be the love

Which consumes your heart

Making you feel as if you’re the only person who exists

I want to be your dream

Your wish

Your everything…

Because this is what you are to me  ❤

Love in the midst of uncertainty

tumblr_nf1nwytWdl1tt42qzo1_500.gif

Unexpectedly bewitched and profoundly mystified
Each become enthusiastically obsessed one to the other
Overwhelming passion leads to spellbound senses
Magnetic forces accelerate the compelling connection
Perceptive thoughts thoroughly examine the situation
Both seek complete understanding and clarification
She discerns his character while he studies her nature
He senses her expectant desires while she fully recognizes his
At last settled minds arouse captivated hearts to eagerly advance
Every questionable thought is now completely abandoned
Impetuous emotions commence while provocative words hover playfully
Finally reacting as tousled raindrops fluctuate invitingly over an alluring current
Destiny is set into motion and love is captured in the midst of uncertainty

I see the real you

I see the real you that’s hidden from sight

I see the real you as you inwardly fight

I see the real you and wish I was there

I see the real you and want you to know I care

#MidnightMadness – 5/21/2017

My daughter and her husband have started a YouTube channel.  Check them out and subscribe!  😉

Searching for you…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve been searching for you

In the gloominess of the day

I can’t see your face

Don’t seem to hear what you say

 

It’s as if you’ve evaporated

Right before my very eyes

So I call out to you

Reaching up toward the skies

 

And still your sweet voice

Is missing from my day

An empty kind of feeling

Surrounds me as I pray

 

My heart feels quite heavy

Barely feel you anymore

I want to see your glory

It’s you I implore

Fallen

blanket-boy-dock-girl-kiss-Favim.com-206170

I woke to find

The world remade

As I realized I’d fallen

For his sweet serenade

Now beneath the covers

Wrapped in pure bliss

Anxiously awaiting

Another gentle kiss

#MidnightMadness – 5/20/2017

Autumn with berry

Certain discoveries were made today at the lunch table…

“Look mom!  A head with a hat!”

~Autumn Cook (Age 8)

I never knew blueberries and raspberries could look like people.  Lol…  😉

Reflection

d35222deef0c6f79c38d6e75ea31c603

Who is this I see…

The one

Staring back at me

Blurred picture

Such an ordinary fixture

Quite insignificant

A forgotten participant

Nothing more than normal

Always drab and informal

Easily missed

Does she even exist?

Discover Challenge – Identity

Time…

time-travel-by-nocturnalfate-photobucket1

Time can be a blessing and yet sometimes a curse
Time is the essence of life and all that it’s worth
Time can be short-lived or even drag on for years
Time is the epitome of why we cry so many tears
Time can leave a heart feeling empty and lost
Time is the one thing that comes with a cost
Time can stand still when you’re with the right one
Time is the culprit behind most of what we’ve done
Time can point us to discoveries and precious treasure
Time is a provision whose value cannot be measured
Time can be taken for granted or genuinely admired
Time is one of those things that often leaves us tired
Time can be alluring or misleading in various ways
Time is the one thing we rely on to consume all our days
Time can offer us so much and gives us a reason to live
Time is the perfect gift that we should all want to give

Spring Frolic

 

dsc_0847-ps

Calm and gentle blows the breeze

Lovers walk amongst the trees

Blue skies smile down from above

Radiating sunshine on those in love

Perfume splendor fills the air

Blossoming beauties wave their fair

Children scamper to and fro

Gaily laughing off they go

Cheerful pleasantries fill the day

As we go on our merry way

Days like this are never a bore

And leave us wanting all the more

Fireflies

27cad0b01014bcededf4f5127f3e73f7

 

Tiny glowing embers

Flitting about in the dark

 

Love blossoming

With each little bursting spark

 

Flickering phosphorescent lights

Illuminate the rugged terrain

 

As whimsical thoughts enrapture

And dare to entertain

We’d be free… free just to be.

IMG_20151103_1414393982

I wish I had a friend who would pretend with me once more

Masquerading away the day, we’d be silly and free

Free to be a princess, a pirate, or even a superhero

Regardless of whomever we wanted to be

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be five once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who would ride bikes with me all day

Riding around the neighborhood, we’d be silly and free

Free to explore the park, the zoo, or even the beach

Regardless of wherever we wanted to go

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be ten once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who would spend some time with me

Bumming around together, we’d be silly and free

Free to hang out at the arcade, go bowling, or even catch a movie

Regardless of whatever we decided to do

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be fifteen once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who could understand what I’m going through

Never-ending late night talks, we’d be silly and free

Free to discover who we are, speak honestly, and become forever friends

Regardless of whatever we discovered about each other

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be twenty once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who would help me make tough decisions

Coming alongside me, we’d be silly and free

Free to dream, think, and consider the future

Regardless of whatever we planned

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be twenty-five once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who would help me be a better parent

Giving me some guidance, we’d be silly and free

Free to learn how to cope, adjust, and love unconditionally

Regardless of whatever we learned

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be thirty once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who could help me fix my marriage

Lending me their shoulder, we’d be silly and free

Free to face problems together, comfort one another, and show compassion

Regardless of whatever we experienced

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be thirty-five once again…

To feel alive again…

 

I wish I had a friend who would make me feel young again

Through words of reassurance, we’d be silly and free

Free to laugh at ourselves, cry at times, and encourage one another

Regardless of our age

We’d be free

Free just to be

Oh to be forty once again…

To feel alive again…

 

To be continued when I’m older… ❤

getty_rm_photo_of_climber_reaching_out

Daring to dream
Reaching even higher
Holding on tighter
Can’t let go
All my strength
Wearing out fast
Starting to slip
Can’t let go
Mind over matter
Hanging on threads
Losing my grip
Can’t let go
Starting to fade
Won’t look down
Someone catch me
Can’t hold on
One last prayer
Holding my breath
Saying silent goodbyes
Must let go
An outstretched hand
Gives me hope
One last chance
Can’t let go

The Heart String

Red-Thread-with-heart

An invisible string connects us
And no matter how far away you go
When I feel the gentle pull of the string
I’m instantly all aglow

I feel this gentle tug so often
And yet I never get tired of its hold
The string reminds me that you are always there
And will be until I’m quite old

Every day I think of you
Until the day is done
This string which ties us is completely unbreakable
And binds our hearts as one

So when you feel the pull
Of my devoted and warm loving soul
Don’t forget that I am always here
Perpetually wishing you were near
