When Love Changes

broken heart

It’s such a sad time

A bad time

When love drifts away

When sweet words

become lies on your lips

When kisses mean nothing anymore

Love seemed so very true

It never made him blue

but she began changing

Began losing the hold

that she once had on him

He knew how it would hurt

when she would go away

He knew that the sunny days

would become dark and grey

Now he was willing to hold on

to the love she was still willing to share

Hoping that she’d change her mind

Hoping she would stay

but his heart was bruised and battered

Hearing those sweet words

Seeing those brilliant smiles

that were now just words

Words with no meaning

Nothing he could say

would change the way

she looked at him now

To save himself from any more harm

He just let her drift away

Loving You


I remember the day

that you came into my life

Everything that you say

Love your loving ways

Here I am loving you

always will remain true

Can you tell me?

What it is in your smile?

The sparkle of your eyes

that makes me always in love with you

Day after day

Is it some kind of magic?

Can you tell me?

Do you love me too?

Am I just dreaming?

While I’m loving you

come and take my hand

Hold me tight

Let’s dance beneath the moonlight

Whisper in my ear

tell me that you love me true

and I’ll never be blue

Loving you is easy to do

You bring me the sunshine

and bright rainbows

when a rainy day gets me down

Loving you through the years

Hoping that you love me too

Then I see the smile

that you flash my way

and I know what you’ll say

That you love me true

will never leave me blue

So together through this life

We go side by side

Loving you

Loving me

Loving life

To My Delight


To my delight

I saw a shooting star

light across the sky

in the dark of night


To my delight

I saw a rainbow

bright against a sky if blue

after the sun chased the rain away


To my delight

I saw a flock of geese

flying high above the clouds

till spring saying good-bye


To my delight

I saw a path

of colorful leaves

beckoning me to follow


To my delight

I walked into the woods

and saw the little caps

of the mushrooms that grew there


To my delight

deep into the night

out came the October moon

shinning down so bright


To my delight

the changing of season

has brought so many wonderful things

like great big orange pumpkins


To my delight

I could see the ducks

in the park nestled on newly fallen leaves

while field mice still scampered about


To my delight

my cat jumps up

trying to catch the falling leaves

as they come down around him


To my delight

I can smile all the while

with surprise at all I see

and laugh with glee

Shadows of the Past

Just Recently Taken 103

Shadows of the past

are ever following me

I can hear the soft whispers

of things that used to be


Shadows of the past

never fail to delight me

They remind me of gladder times

when together were we


Shadows of the past

on silent feet of the night

When the stars come shining up above

I know your smiling upon me


Shadows of the past

always welcome to me

I can almost see

the days that came and went


Shadows of the past

following me through the years

Making me remember and smile

drying all the tears


Shadows of the past

I wonder if you think of me

As much as I think of you

As much as my heart aches


Shadows of the past

will be with me always

Reminding me of the faces and places

the times that stay in my memory


Shadows of the past

always shine upon me

They comfort my soul

knowing someday we’ll meet again


Shadows of the past

photographs never forgotten

They seem to come alive again

as I gaze upon them


Shadows of the past

in the dark of night

As the moon shines bright

come out to dance with me

This Inexplicable Happiness

for smile

What is this inexplicable happiness?

This sudden burst of joy?

That has over taken me

This inexplicable happiness

That suddenly took over

Makes me smile like a fool

Like someone who’s got a secret

What is this inexplicable happiness

that has suddenly burst upon the scene?

I want to embrace the world

and tell it I love it still

I want dance along with the wind

Spread my arms

and hope I can fly

This inexplicable happiness

that makes me laugh

like a madwoman

for no reason at all

What is this inexplicable happiness

that makes me dash out in the rain?

To dance the dance of joy

Happiness and such bliss

Inexplicable happiness

Has my heart singing

I can hear bells ringing

It fills my very soul

This inexplicable happiness

One Man, One Woman


One man, one woman

One love

One passion

One dream


One man, one woman

United in love

Held together by shared dreams

And eternal fire


One man, one woman

One night of passion

Living on the edge

Dreams lying round their feet


One man, one woman

Consumed by passions’ fire

Their very souls

Aching with longing


One man, one woman

One world that they shared

Eyes smoldering with love

Kisses that seared the soul


One man, one woman

Building love’s burning fires

Embers that never cool

Their love will always rule


One man, one woman

One love they cannot deny

Their hearts ever beating in unison

In their love forever bound


One man, one woman

Dancing through life

Days of shared smiles

Nights full of passionate kisses


One man, one woman

One love that they shared

Bound together

Through all eternity

Shattered Dreams

broken heart

Shattered dreams

Cursed love

Nothing ever the same

Life drags on


Shattered dreams

Broken hearts and dashed hopes

Never to be mended

Tears never to dry


Shattered dreams

Broken mirrors

Smoke and mist

Love that drifted away, never to stay


Shattered heroes

Once the kings of love

Left behind

Hearts smashed in the dust


Shattered queens

Once put upon love’s pedestal

Glorifying in the glow of love

Till the curtain came down


Shattered dreams

Pieces of a puzzle

Never to find that missing link

Destroyed by love untrue


Shattered dreams

Leading to sleepless nights

Arms empty and cold

Longing for love deep into the night


Shattered dreams

Hot embers now cold

Once feeling so bold in love

Now unsure and dismal


Shattered dreams

Like champagne glasses smashed into a fireplace

Never to be whole again

When love fails


Shattered dreams

Falling tears

Lots of fears

And never ending rainy days
