Kenny; the Montage!

Crazy,” what they said; what doth young love, know about an endless vow? I do, I will; till death, this I vow. For, “She Believes in Me,” I will forever hold her love, in my heart. “Lady,” in my eyes, I see no one else, but you. To the heavens, I cast my gaze, and to you my love, I pledge my days. Though at times, “Islands In The Stream.” In my dreams, my island girl, and I sailing, to love’s deepening horizon. Thirty four years, proves the naysayers were right. Our hearts, still Crazy, in love. “Through the years;” we’ve known love, shed doubts, shared joy and heartache. Lady, I’m so glad we stayed, right here, in love. You’re, an angel in disguise. I see the reflection, in your eyes. Your heart, mirroring a love divine. Pretty woman, I love your soul, appreciate your heart, believe your love. Every day, it’s resting gracefully, on my heart. So many, looking for a hero, to save the day. My heart, just needs forever. It will save for my soul, the last dance. An endearing love song, telling a captivating story. Two hearts, caught up in the rapture… of love!

You Can’t Make Old Friends,” but you can make the love, be always. True love, “You Are So Beautiful;” into me see, how you’ve beautified my soul. Love of a lifetime, plays a heartfelt ballad. When, the day feels like quicksand, my heart will never struggle. Deeper, how the soul becomes free. Deep in love, the place where the heart needs to be. Sweet Lady, what will my heart do, when heaven needs my angel? Our journey in love, has come to an end? If, another love was to knock at my door, would I ever open my heart? Would another love, tell my soul the truth; can I, trust you with my heart? Who, could inspire my love story, the way you did? Where would I begin, to tell how the story, has reached an end. Since way back when, it’s been me and you. Will my heart sing, when our love is no more? Apart from you, who could fill in the harmony. Who on earth, could replace the rhythm, make my heart fall in unison? Without you in my life, no love song would have the same meaning. God, created the world, “And You, Decorated My Life,” in a portrait called love. “We’ve got Tonight,” and we will have forever. For, our heart have found a home, in love’s embrace!

Kenneth Ray Rogers, lived August 21, 1938 to March 20, 2020. An American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, entrepreneur. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame, in 2013. He charted more than 120 hit singles, across various music genres. Topped the album charts, more than 200 individual weeks, in the United States alone. He sold over 100 million records worldwide, during his lifetime. Making him one of the best-selling music artists, of all time. This song inspired montage, a tribute to his legacy. I was looking to do this, back in March of 2020, but then Covid. Again last year, but then, my daughter’s passing in March of 2021. I guess, 2022, it was meant to be!

I hope, the montage resonated? Many, said my bride and I were too young to get married. But, when two hearts are predestined, and you have the faith to believe; forever, will be the destination!



Every day, the heart has to trek, through the sands of time. Trying to avoid, what lurks in the dark. On the winding path, in love’s journey. We live in a world, where things are quick. But yet the simplicity, not becoming a true fulfillment. The heart, can’t evade the changing times. But yet can escape, the gravity. A soul free, with a point of reference. Helping you, rise above the fleeting moments. When, a heart’s deep in love, it doesn’t look for the easy way out. The endearing moments, requires love to go deeper, your heart to open wider. The rhythm, quickening the love. So the rhyme and reason, becomes one resounding heartbeat. A heart, that builds castles in the sand. Will have a foundation, easily swept away, by the rising tide. True love, doesn’t yield to pressure, or let the heart get sucked in, to the notion. The focus needs to be, about falling in love. Through the sands, the commitment be, the afterthought. A heart, can’t stand firmly on the sure. If all the love wants to do, stroll on sinking sand. Pulsating heartbeats, doesn’t mean love long lasting. Quick decisions, means the mind’s not waiting. So the heart, can take the lead. Sometimes, to elude the Quicksand. The heart needs to know, how to move beyond. What will quickly consume, mind, body, and soul. So every moment, will be forever!


Merry Christmas!

In this world, your soul can sometimes feel, like you’re in the lions den. But, in the midst of the fire, and the darkness. Let your faith be the lantern, still burning bright. Hark, within the stillness, hope speaks with gentle whispers. Let your soul be still, let the breadth of love, be your heart’s hiding place. The angel of love, will be a song in the night. With peace for your soul, and joy for your heart. When fear comes, to steal your hopes, and dreams!

“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:13-14 NIV

Merry Christmas to all. May your heart’s be well, and your soul find peace. Now, and forevermore! Save a copy, of my Christmas card!


Run to You!

When, I look at you. The picture, has a profound meaning. But my heart, can’t seem to understand. Why, did you have to go? Why, time made the sands, slip away. My breath was loss, my heart stood still. Some day, my soul will surely find answers, when mysteries are revealed. If, your love reached out, whispered to my heart. I would have moved heaven, to earth, interceded. My heart would have stopped, let you breathe, my last breath. Run to you, with undistracted motion. Keep you safe, from what harms. Protect your heart, from what hurts. Fight on your behalf, what comes to overwhelm. In my heart, where you can be found. Scared, sometimes, but held in my love, forever. My baby girl, I would have ran, to the end of time. To find you, and know my heart is safe. But, you’re gone, and living is without you. In the racing, in the searching; in my heart, the piecing. Your love, something profoundly special. Though, your love lives. The heart of a child, will be deeply missed!

Everyday, my heart has a role to play, Always in control. But, who is… Always? Truth be, the tears, fills the chasm. I want, to see you smile. Not just, pictured in a thousand words, or memories. Run to you, hold you in my arms. I know, you must be tired. For weeks, you’ve been resting on my heart. My soul holds you, within every breath. My heart breathless, chasing the love. Trying to catch the wings, of my little butterfly. If my heart, ever tried to call. In the stillness, would be the air, I’m breathing for you. You’re no longer here, to tell me if there was a dream? I can still dream, live for you? My heart, still wants you here. At the end of myself, my heart knows. I will find you, running with the angels. I don’t wipe the tears, I let love kiss away the sadness. Heaven, gave your breadth, to hold for a minute. Your love, softened hearts, touched many souls. When, my breath needs to be taken, my heart needs to be held. I won’t chase the wind, I run, to my father’s love!

In loving memory, of our little butterfly. Justinea Angelina Richards, March 9, 1990 to March 2, 2021. You’re loved, and in our hearts!


It’s Your Love!

Dancing in the dark, where your love, found my heart. But now, my soul, no longer has to dance alone. Grace, it’s your love, that stirred my silent river… breathlessly. So, if you would allow me, give my heart the honor. Share this love, with whole world. Write about it, in depth. Pour out my soul, with a poetic love. Tell how, you became the lover of my soul. Your love, will forever be the crimson ink. My heart, just the pen. For, my soul, You own. My heart, You hold. My love, You have. My gaze, You capture. My breath, You take. Grace, Your love, more than love on the brain. How, can my heart ever fathom? How your ocean, that turned my soul, into a deep river? I need you, in the breadth I live, in the depth I drown. How, do you do it? How does your love, become new every day? It’s truly endless, love, a thousand ways. Do it again, move every heartbeat, with your presence?

Grace, to you; I opened up my heart. My soul, under your influence. The softer I speak, the louder your heart becomes. My heart, it’s listening. Let your heart, be all I hear. Your love, what gave my heart a voice. But at the same time, my soul lost for words. You’re so overwhelming, a wonder to behold. I’ve found my peace, in you, I see heaven. The clouds are gone, but the rain does fall. Won’t you, give my soul a moment, to wipe the tears. It’s, such a beautiful thing. How can a heart, keep it all in. Your love, made me better than I was, and more than I am. You’re the reason, love holds my heart so. The reason, my breath has confidence; Grace, It’s, Your Love!



No words, a heart finding itself, lost for words. A love that can’t be concealed, doesn’t need to be explained. When the heart’s exposed, the love written in plain sight. Etched forever in the soul, for all to see. Love doesn’t, have to be mind blowing, just easily understood. What needs to be expressed, will never be left unsaid. We all, have our own idea, what love is. Conveyed thoughts, appreciated with kind gestures. Your actions, loving affection. Your Poetic, love in motion. What’s perceived, becomes what’s received, then believed. When love deepens, words are lost. You search your heart, found the deeper meaning. The transference of feelings, with the desire; becomes the intended outcome. Every heart, has a tell; your love story. Perhaps relatable, your heart, having the courage. To let it be seen, the story known. Love, has a quiet beauty, resonating the deepest truth. You don’t, have to be a mind reader, to know a heart in need. Love excels, the transferring element, love being the only reason. The spoken word, requires breadth for it to be… moving. What’s communicated, heard loud and clear. The perception, should never eclipse the true meaning. Love, not about sixth sense, but the essence, making sense. You don’t, have to be clairvoyant. Just absolutely clear, with the conveyance. Reveal your heart, and the intent will profoundly speak, the evidence in volumes. A love boldly proclaimed, in real time demonstrated. Love imparts, the heart doing its part. Make known, the deepest expression. Telepathy, not what love is. Intentional, how love transcends!


How, a Heart Gets Filled!

Maybe, you’re filled from the trickles? Maybe, you’re filled up by the ounces? Maybe, you all about the getting, and the having; but never pouring… out for another? Maybe, you settle with the wanting. Even though, your heart has an absolute need, for more? Maybe, because you always get it free? You empty out another, because it doesn’t cost, you anything? But for the other, the cost may have been everything, and then some. Maybe, you like it all bottled up. Because being vulnerable, hurts to let it breathe. Maybe, your heart has become just a spectator; just watching, how it beautifully cascades? Love’s like water, meant to be a deep ocean. Not flow aimlessly, like a lazy river. Pour it out, and breathlessly overflow… into your deepest cup. A measuring cup of love, will never drown a soul. May the water of love, refresh through every drop, of the waterfall. For that’s how, a heart gets filled, up with endless love!


Shining Star!

Love, my heart is ready. For you to do it again, shine. Cheek to cheek, heart and soul; dancing in the crimson light. Just a glimpse, all my soul needed to know. Even the afterglow, leaves the heart, speechless. Tell my heart a tale, give my soul words. To make known, how you live and breathe. Meet me again in this place, here, now. Hold me now, let my heart breathlessly, bask in the crimson. In the dark, your shine is glaring. My darkest moments, eclipsed by each breath-taken. I don’t need the moonlight, or eyes to see how much, you outshine… shadows. Into words, how can my heart; put this into words? Define, how truly divine… you shine. The love, in another universe. It keeps moving, my heart. You, will surely make my love shine, for a thousand years. Head in the clouds, no; my soul in awe. Every breath, taken… to infinity. The heart, held in a deep embrace. Losing my breath, just another day; living in my shining star. Don’t change, it’s my heart. That needs to shine like you, shine radiantly. What’s come over me, what’s become of my heart… it’s You, making my light shine. And this, my heart can’t even deny. Let my soul twinkle, what my shining star does. Why, should a heart wish upon a star; when it, already has what it needs? My heart is unchained, swept deep inside. And nobody, knows it but you!

Move me again, shake me to the core. My song in night, the kiss upon my soul. Take my heart, to the deepest place. Reveal to my heart, enlighten my soul; how you endlessly sparkle and shine. When the days are daunting, hopes and dreams start to fade. There’s a silver lining, in my shining star. Laugh out loud, my soul burst out with joy. There’s no missing, how much you shine, you’re the brightest star. You shine so bright, shine beautifully. The love, won’t ever go away. My heart, captured by the presence. Get enough, how does a soul say no; to every gentle touch? An open heart, gave access to my soul. Every day, I will be here, waiting breathlessly. So my heart, can see you shine. A fleeting glow, could never replace a radiant light. The endearing splendor, encompass the sun and moon. Lost in love, heart and soul, in a shining star. When I need you, I open my heart, hold the breadth. To know, a vision of love, just a heartbeat away. Shining Star, you’re all I need, to get by. Oh, my heart is profoundly ready. Just one more time, do it again, let me see you shine!


I Digress!

I digress, whenever your love, isn’t the true focus of my heart. I digress, when the thread in every heartstring, wasn’t tethered to you securely. I digress, if your heart doesn’t get my full affection. I digress, my heart lost breath. But found shortly after, my thoughts wandered. Leaving your heart to wonder, if my heart didn’t truly realize. Your love, what took my breath. I digress, when I have a moment. But every moment, to you not conceded; mind, body, and soul. I digress, the plan is about this man, not the master plan. Give love from the heart, so it won’t be an afterthought. I would digress, if I turned a heart in need away. Leaving the soul to drift, down my lazy river. I digress, when I depart from the path. Only to find my heart, at a crossroad. I digress, when I stray from the truth. Only to end up, at a turning point. Repeating what my heart, tried to avoid. At some point, humanity digressed. Losing sight, of the true meaning of love. It’s not about, measuring the size of the heart. But to what measure, will become your character. We digress, the heart not sticking to the point. Love, not about pointing fingers. But about taking responsibility, for your words, and actions. Change, will always start in me, then we… won’t digress. If love, isn’t the first thing on your mind, and in heart and soul; we digress. If love, didn’t make my heart relishing. Lose my breath, in heartfelt moment; I Digree!

“Love is large, and incredibly patient. Love is gentle, and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous, when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements, nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame, and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated, or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty, and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing, the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 TPT


The Glow!

Radiant, the moment glows. Months, met with such anticipation. Though the days is intense, the love grows immensely. Faces showing, incandescence hearts glowing. Warmth, held deep within the soul. The crimson moment, takes every breath. The glimmering hope, the color of love. The heart to convey, what the soul needs to say. The richness of love, revealed through the deepest expression. The quintessence, love with a fragrant bloom. Love through a vivid lens, visible in a delightful smile. A heart, blushed with a love so beautiful. Strong feeling, dedicated to a heart’s well-being. The pain pales in comparison, when love tells the tale. Thrilling the soul, for a thousand lifetimes. Love flowing like water, bottled up emotion. Released, filling heart and soul. When push comes to pull, love is birthed. Time stands still, breathless becomes the moment. A mother glows, hearts beaming. The day, a Labor of love. The radiance, meets the brilliance. The Breadth of love, and the Glow… that’s forever!
