Love, is That You?

Love, is that you, knocking at my heart? Is that your presence, peering into my soul? Is that you, in plain sight, waiting to take my breath? Is that you I feel, pressing up against my soul? Is it your allure, persuading my every heartbeat? Is it your breadth, breathing life into my soul? Is it your light, dancing within my gaze. Is it your smile, shining like the morning sun? Is it your hue, hovering so close to my heart? Is that your fragrance, lingering throughout the day? Is that your warmth, moving within every gentle breeze? Is it your voice, whispering within the stillness, speaking into my soul? Are you the endearing words, changing my perspective? Is the love I know a dream, or is it you awakening, provoking my endless daydreams? Are you the waves, the emotions crashing against my heart? Love, oh love, you must be an ocean, making every drowning breathlessly? Are you the pebble skimming, stirring my silent river, to become your deep river? Is it your peace, invading my thoughts? Are you the gentle nudge, pushing to know, the strength of my love? Are you the laugh, echoing within my joy? Are you the freedom, walking throughout my soul? Are you the song, playing the perfect melody? Are you the love, within my story, the word written upon my heart? Are you the spark, igniting love’s deepening passion? Are you the seed, embedded deep within my being? Are you the timeless flower, the love petals falling along my most intimate path? Are you the wings, making my soul soar. Are you the mist, making the rain fall from my eyes? Is it you that made, my heart beat for first time? Are you the thunder, beating within my chest? Love, my soul knows it’s You, but sometimes it seems. I’m getting to see, how you engage a heart, like it’s the very first time!

Love, Oh Love!

Love, oh love. Today, every day, there’s this feeling, invading my thoughts. Asking but telling, my breath will be taken. Love, oh love, there’s this smile, with a confident grin. Again tomorrow, my thoughts will be invaded, my heart will again be stirred. Oh love, in this feeling, there’s no subtlety, no remorse. In the taking, and my heart giving. Love, oh love, tell me; what should I do? When the mind acts a fool, but your heart says it’s cool? We’ve all been there, it’s not a foolish heart, when the feeling is profound. Love, is it silly to think, when you run into love’s fire, the flames won’t chase after your heart, to become a soul consumed. Love, oh Love, what do you do? When you’re confronted, by the emotion, sometimes called desire, some define it as passion. Perhaps, no I’m truly convinced; it becomes a mutual understanding; within heart and soul. The feeling, pushing you to be, pressing your confidence to become, devoted affection. The inexhaustible tendencies, more than reactional, the shaping of the characteristics. Love, oh Love, this feeling; it’s like waves crashing, the breathtaking, the drowning, in an ocean. What do you do, when the feeling says; there’s no catch, no strings. But yet, you give your everything… willingly, with no prenuptial. Love, oh Love, what’s a heart to do? When it’s you, Love; when you’re the feeling, making me absolutely complaisant, in this heartfelt tale!

My love will always be, where your heart needs it to be. Whenever, you need to be held. Hold out your love, take me by the heart. Hand in hand, heart to heart, let’s reminisce. I love this, if we don’t let time remiss, our love won’t digress. Into me see, the unyielding, texture of my love. And if, my heart makes the rain fall? Don’t despair, I will be right here, in the moment. To wipe the tears, cover you with my love. Shhh, there’s no need for words, your love is so close to my heart, it speaks to my soul. Even, when it seems I’m sleeping, I’m just resting in love. In the stillness, my heart is quieting, listening, waiting to exhale. My inspired hopes, realized through your dreams. On the cloudiest days, in the darkest moments. It will never be hard, for my heart, to see your worth. When the night falls, your love is a shining light, making my heart twinkle. Always, forever by you my love, free to be. Love teaches, profound love is learned. True love, has taught my heart much. Whatever, need will be required, my love will be near your heart, to become. I believe in love, I believe in you; you’ll never, stand alone!

Sweet lady, your heart is a delight. Your smile, the sunshine, in the moonlight, your beauty glows. My heart, refuses to let your love lose. But yet, we need direction, we still get lost in love. Every day, let your stroll through my mind, and search my heart. My love will be there, assuring your heart, you’ll never be alone. No other woman, has ever touched my heart, made me bare my soul. For you to feel loved, for you deserve love. I won’t let your heart, feel alone in this world. And if, you can’t find the strength inside, my love will be strong for you. Don’t ever, be scared to reach out your heart. My love will be there, you’re not alone. There will always be a home, in these arms of mine. I will never, let your heart go, let your love stand alone, in my deep river. My heart will be there, to help guide the way. Trees sway, but my heart will stay. Only swept away, by love and devotion. You’re an inspiration, my heart is not ready to let you go. In this life, in this heart of mine. True love, a perpetual bloom, a crimson love. The water falls, my love cascades, my heart concedes. Yes, to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health. To love and to cherish, till death, I pledged thee my heart. When time finds us breathless, my beloved bride, in my heart; You’ll Never Stand Alone!

This song inspired, in memory of Whitney Houston. Since 2018, I’ve taken a moment, to honor the heart. Take one of her songs, and write a post in her memory. Her life, August 9, 1963 to February 11, 2012. She had an incredible gift, but unfortunately, her life is also a perfect example. To show that if we don’t truly guard our heart, we can end up straying down a darkened path. The light of God’s love hovers, but it’s for us, to NOT let the darkness, eclipse the enlightened way! You’ll never stand alone, released in 1998

Resting, in the Father’s Grace!

When the sun sets, lay your heart down. To let your soul be at rest, in the father’s grace. Love will be the blanket, the truth laid across your heart, will keep your soul safe. Let love be the sweet lullaby, the song in the night, singing over you. Love is the light, that enlightens dreams. In the twilight, let your soul walk in your sleep, let it walk in freedom. In the morning, in the wake; rise up, be like the sun. Light, and warmth of your love, an endearing gentle touch. Acts of kindness, will take you by the heart. A soul rested, awaken feeling alive. A heart and soul empowered, to live life boldly. Deep rooted living, a soul with an endlessly blown. A heart growing naturally, with a perpetual hue. Not because of a perception, with the love connection. Energetic love empowers, profound love becomes empowering. Love’s empowerment, strength to break down barriers. This happens, when the moments become a heart; Resting, in the Father’s love. Forever, and always!

Love, great is thy faithfulness, thy heart changest not, thy compassion fails not. As thou hast been, thou will forever be. In summer, in winter, in springtime, and harvest. The sun, the moon, the stars glowing with its majestic wonder. Hearts, joined with love’s nature, becoming a manifold witness. Love, we need thee, morning by morning. Great, is thy faithfulness!

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, his glory will be seen upon you. And the nations, shall come to your light, kings to the brightness of your Rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3 ESV

In the Morning!

In the morning, I rise, place my heart on the surface, but press my hopes beyond. It’s another day, another moment to rise up. Every day, I have to stand up, love takes action. If I rise, my heart can’t help but shine. When, my love becomes a light. One step, one heartbeat, one breath at a time, how love gets you to your destiny. But, I have to step out with faith, pursue the day with confidence. Love illuminates, the breadth enlightens. Love’s presence, in it an experience, the true expression, nuanced. Love is a fragrance, you release into the atmosphere. For the breathtaking moments, heartfelt encounters. For, my love to become a light shining; In the Morning, my heart has to rise!

This Side of Time!

When the word heard is, they have passed, the tears will fall. But they won’t see it, the love in your heart, this side of time. The moment, to pour out your soul, has already passed. When there’s a need, to wipe somebody’s tears. Do it, share your heart, don’t let the moment pass. And though, your heart is moved, to send a bouquet of condolences. They won’t be able, to smell the roses, enjoy your crimson hue. All that will be seen, how time makes, moments wither. Give them your love, while they can appreciate your heart. When you feel, the need to stand up, express your heartfelt sympathy. Let it be, dear heart, this side of time. For, they won’t hear you say, how much they’re loved. Don’t let endearing moments, escape your thoughts. Even though, words may be at a loss. Now is the time, today is the moment, let your heart be known. Don’t, let time get away, let love seize the moment. In every breath, love breathes life. Expressions of love, memories to cherish, moments to relish; this side of time!

In Fields of Dreams!

In the twilight, your heart sparkles, your light, illuminates the heaven. In the daylight, daydreams come alive. Your love, invades every thought, visits the captive soul. In fields of dreams, the reign comes, the tears fall, the love blooms. In feelings, the soul is swept away, by the overwhelming love. Bottled up emotions, love welling from an underground spring. From the bottom of the heart, the soul pours out, endless love!

In loving memory, for all the loved ones, who have given their last breath; this side of time! If you would like, to share the name of your loved one? Leave their name, and I will place it on the rose!

Don’t Leave Me!

You invade my soul, you’re all up in my heart. Some days I don’t feel you, some days can’t tell if the love is real. When the clouds roll in, the rain falls. Some days, I question what you see, what you believe it’s will become, don’t leave me. Some days I don’t know, why you want me? Why you don’t leave, whenever I push you away. Sometimes I don’t know, who are you, I don’t know you right now? Maybe, I’m still just learning, how to love. Why, don’t you give the word a rest? I don’t believe, I’m getting your best, your whole heart, don’t leave me. It’s all in jest, I just had to get you off my chest. Today, my heart says I don’t need you, but tomorrow, be close to me. I’m going to need you again, to hold me tight, don’t leave me. In my mind, I just need to get away, but in my heart, I need you by my side, don’t ever walk away. Even if, the years take a toll, love will surely have a role. Sometimes, I just need to be left alone, but please don’t leave me… forever. The constant arguing, just love tugging on the heartstrings. Words coming out strong, too much being said, but not enough love articulated. The question is, will love still be, the common ground. So even if, I say I need some space. The heart will always know, you’re still in love, don’t leave me. Sometimes, you leave me feeling, your time leaves me wanting. But, all that needs to known, will the love, leave my soul needing? I am imperfect, my heart sometimes irrational, when breath can’t be found. Love, you invade my soul, you’re all up in my being. Love, you’re my everything; don’t leave me!

In every relationship, there’s the back and forth, the ups and downs. Two souls, not seeing heart to heart. Every day, there’s the fight, to stay in love. Learning to love, never a bed of roses, but that doesn’t mean, the love won’t be… forevermore!

Inside Out!

A heart is built, from within. A strong foundation, built from the ground up. Hope builds, faith strengthens, love is shaped, by design. From the inside out, you open up your heart, the window to your soul. Inside myself, a place where I once lived. Some time ago, a silent river, ran through the heart of a child. In the depth, love was being created, worth endearingly fashioned. Inside myself, the place my heart felt safe. Until love broke down the walls, to let vulnerability shows. Love profoundly restores, a soul is built, the inside out. For, a heart is not a home, if your soul isn’t in it. Even with a light, a heart can be just a fixture. Even in the light, a soul can hide in the shadows. Love builds, so many beautiful stories. Beliefs are formed, confidence molded, words constructed. Love is made stronger, not built on a premise. True beauty accentuates, inside out. Custom made, my heart for love, with a built-in desire. A soul painted, in a vibrant hue. At home, within yourself, heartbeats in rhythm, while time moves every encounter. Living is loving the moments, reflections of love, shining on the inside… out. An outer expression, the revealed texture of a heart, inside out!
