Standing in the rain

Standing in the rain
Thinking of the old timez..
Eyez filled with tearz..
Looking at my past..
Not being able to blink..
I turn around to walk away..
Can’t step ahead..
Seen people moving on,
“Hey..!! Stop..!!”
Words don’t seem to come out..
I look around,
Finding myself to be stuck..
Between here and there..

Eyez filled with tearz..
Looking at my past..
Not being able to blink..
I turn around to walk away..
Can’t step ahead..
Which way do I go..??
What am I gonna find..??
I rather stay where I am,
Than hit dead ends..
So lost and so confused..
I’ve made my decision..
Why do I still think..??

Eyez filled with tearz..
Looking at my past..
Not being able to blink..
I turn around to walk away..
Can’t step ahead..
My head is spinning,
And I am about to drop..
Drop dead right here,
NO..!! I can’t..
I need to, I want to..
Walk ahead, and see..
What has life got in store for me..
Be it grief or joy,
I wanna go through it..

Grief feels good now..
Masochist, aren’t I..?
Joy never hurts, does it?
Well, yes it does..
Right after the joy is gone..
Grief hits you.. HARD..!!
But again.. Pain is good..
Ain’t it..??

Eyez filled with tearz..
Looking at my past..
Not being able to blink..
I turn around to walk away..
Step ahead and stumble..
Laugh it off.. And keep walking..
Till am done.. Officially gone..

With All of These Emotions

With All of These Emotions

 With all of these emotions
 I sit here thinking,
 My eyes
 They're barely blinking.
 Remembering your flawless face and the way you laugh,
 How much I love you
 Don't know the half.
 The way I feel while holding your body close to mine,
 The feelings I get
 A totally new kind.
 How I get giggly and warm when I'm near you,
 There aren't many things that are perfect
 But you...
 Are absolutely the greatest
 And most beautiful girl I know,
 If there were any way
 Concerning my love for you
 To show...
 To you
 Just to make sure you understand
 How I feel while holding your hand,
 And how I feel when our lips touch,
 A romantic kiss means so much.
 Me loving you is something that will never change,
 When thinking about you
 My mind is estranged.
 So I'm taking a little time
 To try to make a sweet little rhyme,
 To say one thing
 Thank God for having a destiny for us two,
 I am so in love with you.

Till the End

Till the End

I love you in the morning,
For the first kiss from your soft lips.
I love you in the night,
For the touch of your silk, rose-scented
skin next to mine.
With every breath I take,
It fills my heart with a purpose,
A purpose to live 'til the end.

If love is the only real thing one can give,
Then I give it to you.
For you are the glistening fire
That burns within me.
You are the tear drop,
That falls from my eyes when I am sad.
For no one can love me the way
You have shown me.
For this, my dear, I would always
Love and cherish the way
We were meant to be together 'til the end

to my one and only love

to my one and only love

i need not look toward the moon
when you are the beauty of my life

i need not seek the sun
when you are the light of my soul

i need not search the heavens
when you are the very beat of my heart

the universe is but an atom of my love
 all of which i find in you
 and with every breath i take
 i think of you, my love

you are but a piece of moon on earth
 which i can never forget
 and if i was granted but one wish to make
 i would wish for thy eternal happiness

i will love no one but thee
till the day i die
 and then beyond..

I Know I'll Love Again

I Know I'll Love Again

How do you repair a heart that's broken?
How do you heal the wounds?
How do you ever trust another?
How do you love so soon?

You left me asking these questions,
You left me alone to wonder.
How could I know you'd leave me,
And break the spell I'm under?

We had a love like fairy tales-
Prince Charming on one knee.
I thought I was your Cinderella,
But I was too blind to see.

The love you had came from another,
Someone I'm afraid to know.
So now I hide within myself,
So my pain-filled eyes won't show.

You've made it hard to trust another,
Making sure no paths are crossed.
Since you never knew what you had,
You'll never know now what you've lost!

My heart was all for giving,
But all you did was take.
I know one day I'll love again,
And learn from my mistakes.

Always and forever

Always and forever

Always and forever my heart is yours.
You have showed me such sweetness and taught me what Love is for.

You set my heart a blaze with passion and love.
I am grateful for you, and I thank the Lord above

For sending me his best, a woman of sheer perfection.
You have given me your love and unconditional affection.

Like a rose in moist earth, our love will flourish and grow.
You?re like an Angel on Earth with a radiant glow.

Like a dove in flight, our love will soar.
I will love you, Sweet Princess, forevermore.

Thank you for brightening my skies and calming my seas.
I love you, Sweet Baby, for fulfilling my dreams.

You are my heart and soul

You are my heart and soul
You are my passion and desire
I am so in love with you.
It consumes me like fire.

To feel your touch or your warm embrace,
To lay soft kisses upon your face,
To touch your soul as you have mine,
To caress your skin would be devine.

My heart is full to say the least.
With you in my life I have found my peace,
A piece of heaven. I think I will ask
For God to protect you as these days pass.

For my life without you would be a waste,
To miss the moment when we are face to face.
For then I will tell you that you are my love.
No one will I ever have above.

You have stolen my heart it is for no other.
If you were to leave me I would surely suffer.
You have made me whole with the love you have given.
And this heart of mine you will forever live in.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Sometimes I wonder

Sometimes I wonder
Was it all just a lie..??
Did I really surrender..??
Can’t help but cry..
Why.. ?..Why can’t I put you behind..??
I don’t wanna be hated,
Just ‘cuz some like you took over my mind..
Why was this feeling created..??
Why can’t you be passionately hated..??
Maybe this is all just a dream,
And one night I’ll awake with a scream..
Forget it all,
And start living in and for the moment..
For people like y’all..
Now its time for this to end,
Lets just go back and pretend..
Live a lie,
Just to see people smile...and make less of them cry…

Looking at the deep dark skies

Looking at the deep dark skies
From where I sit..
Thinking of the nights,
We talked about death &

Wonder how easily forgotten..
The countless hours we spent..
Was it that easy..? To leave me so lonely.. So broken..
Was the ‘Goodbye’ the only thing you really meant..?

Like the moonlight that never seems to fade,
The memories are fresh.. They never seem to die..
These words are all that’s left.. This is what I made..
No one can & nothing will stop the tears that my heart will cry..

Pain is the only thing left.. After you..
At times.. Just the thought of being with you.. Seems too good to be true..

The stars shine bright..
Wish I could lose myself in your eyes..
And never find my way back.. Only then I just might..
Just might be able to live with the truth.. And not the lies..

Now the moon’s hidden & the stars disappeared..
The dark clouds are here & they have covered,
Every bit of the sky visible..
And you are leaving.. Making me feel miserable..

The rain drops hit my window..
As I look down below..
I picture you.. I hope one day you get up..
Up to where you were before..
I think its time for me to shut up,
But I wish to see you somewhere & just talk..
Maybe on the sea shore..

I want to let you know..
You mean something to me, like the dark nights.. You always have..
I cared for you then.. Care for you now..
And forever more..

My loyalty and my affection towards you will never fade..
I rather slit my wrist with one of the sharpest blade..
Than turn my back on you.. The person I trust..
And I promise you.. I won’t fail to do so.. Till all my nights rust..

Star Of Wonder

Star Of Wonder

Oh starry night of wonder
Crystalline and clear,
Dream of lost hopes
And everything held dear.

A night so bright as this
Led by the Northern Star,
A joyous time to celebrate
No matter where you are.

Snowflakes that fall
As pure as gold,
A warmth inside
That melts the cold.

A heart so filled
With childish delight,
Praying of dreams
Coming true tonight.

A peace is found
So rare to find,
Serenity blessed
By a quiet mind.

What beholds our joy
Upon this night,
A star of wonder
Oh glorious sight.

Behold, Behold
This peace inside,
Reflecting in
The tears we've cried.

Star of wonder
Full of light,
Bless us all
This Holy Night.

I love you with all my heart And dearest one

I love you with all my heart
And dearest one
I hope we never part
I’m grateful for the day

We first got together
The day destiny intervened,
Now, beloved I feel the need
To stay with you forever!

Your loving smile and gentle way
Makes me love you
More and more each day
And as we grow old together you shall find

That my love for you
Shall never fade,
My love for you
Shall never die!

Sensational is the beauty of his eyes

Sensational is the beauty of his eyes,
Astounding is his pitch black hair;
Notions of him and I together,
Saying his and byes
Arouse in me the feeling not to share!
Seeing him with someone else
Angers and frustrates me;
I have the power to stop him,
Or even better, make him mine,
Yet I let him go.
Not because I doubt my love,
It’s ‘cause I love him endlessly.

Every bit of your love Brings warmth to my heart

Every bit of your love
Brings warmth to my heart.
Because you are someone special,
I knew it from the start.

You give me a reason
The joy of each day.
Waking up each morning
Without a delay.

I think of what you might be doing
As early as it might be.
The sun shining through
The branches of a tree.

Reaching my window
The light seems so bright.
Bringing life to the flowers
Breaking the night.

My thoughts start wandering
As they often do.
But most of my thoughts
Are centered on you.

I think about the future,
And what it will be.
Me holding you,
And you holding me.

Hand in hand,
No matter the weather.
Our love will shine
As WE face life together.

This is the way
Our life WILL be.
The roots are planted,
And growing like a tree.

The only way to go
Is up and out,
I love you very much,
There is no doubt.

So I'll keep watering this tree,
A plant of love.
It will keep growing,
High and above.

So, I'll finish my thoughts
And finish this poem.
Thinking each morning,
You're one day closer to coming home.

Just past dawn, the sun stands

Just past dawn, the sun stands
with its heavy red head
in a black stanchion of trees,
waiting for someone to come
with his bucket
for the foamy white light,
and then a long day in the pasture.
I too spend my days grazing,
feasting on every green moment
till darkness calls,
and with the others
I walk away into the night,
swinging the little tin bell
of my name.

Between my finger and my thumb

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests; as snug as a gun.

Under my window a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:
My father, digging. I look down

Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.

The coarse boot nestled on the lug, the shaft
Against the inside knee was levered firmly.
He rooted out tall tops, buried the bright edge deep
To scatter new potatoes that we picked
Loving their cool hardness in our hands.

By God, the old man could handle a spade,
Just like his old man.

My grandfather could cut more turf in a day
Than any other man on Toner's bog.
Once I carried him milk in a bottle
Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up
To drink it, then fell to right away
Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods
Over his shoulder, digging down and down
For the good turf. Digging.

The cold smell of potato mold, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through living roots awaken in my head.
But I've no spade to follow men like them.

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests.
I'll dig with it.

Let me die a youngman's death

Let me die a youngman's death
not a clean and inbetween
the sheets holywater death
not a famous-last-words
peaceful out of breath death

When I'm 73
and in constant good tumour
may I be mown down at dawn
by a bright red sports car
on my way home
from an allnight party

Or when I'm 91
with silver hair
and sitting in a barber's chair
may rival gangsters
with hamfisted tommyguns burst in
and give me a short back and insides

Or when I'm 104
and banned from the Cavern
may my mistress
catching me in bed with her daughter
and fearing for her son
cut me up into little pieces
and throw away every piece but one

Let me die a youngman's death
not a free from sin tiptoe in
candle wax and waning death
not a curtains drawn by angels borne
'what a nice way to go' death

Lots of things you did I forgave you

Lots of things you did I forgave you
And yet again you repeated all those things I never wanted you to do,
You broke my heart !

I showered all my love for you,
I never looked at another...
You were the only one for me to love,
To be wholely mine,
I wanted you for me.

But you did not be mine, in mind and body !
But you did not belong to me !
Your mind wandered....
Your trust went astray....
Your belief in me shattered...
Your ideas were always different !

You shattered my spirits and my mind!
You were only a bomb waiting to be exploaded !
I could never know you !
Each time I thought I knew you,
I found that I was wrong.
Alas !

Broken in mind and Spirit,
I had to, reluctantly, leave you,
To find your own ways in this world !
You wanted you Independence very much !
And, I hope I did the right thing ?
By giving you your Independence.
Bye, my love,
Yet, But, you shall always remain in my heart and mind.

you missunderstood me my love

you missunderstood me my love !
you never really heard what i had to say !
you only kept you head high
And did not know what went around.
you did not heed my warnings
you let life go on and on....
but you did not listen to me !

love! what went wrong ?
Why did you not keep your ears open to my voice ?
Love ! what went wrong ?
Why did you not try to understand me ?
Love ! what went wrong ?
Why did you always mistrust me ?
Love ! What went Wrong ?
Why ! why ! Why!...

I love you so much,
I only wanted your trust,
I wanted you trust,
I wanted you to believe in me,
I wanted you to love me,
I wanted you just for me.

But! You never became mine.
Yet I tried.
I gave you all my love.
And you gave me all the MISERY.

If I had to live my life without you near me

If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young and we both know
They'll take us where we want to go
Hold me now, touch me now
I don't want to live without you
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you

One Sister have I in our house

One Sister have I in our house
And one, a hedge away.
There's only one recorded,
But both belong to me.

One came the road that I came—
And wore my last year's gown—
The other, as a bird her nest,
Builded our hearts among.

She did not sing as we did—
It was a different tune—
Herself to her a music
As Bumble bee of June.

Today is far from Childhood—
But up and down the hills
I held her hand the tighter—
Which shortened all the miles—

And still her hum
The years among,
Deceives the Butterfly;
Still in her Eye
The Violets lie
Mouldered this many May.

I spilt the dew—
But took the morn—
I chose this single star
From out the wide night's numbers—

Success is counted sweetest

Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated—dying—
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!

Always and Forever

Always and Forever

For you I'd make the world turn,
For you my heart will always yearn.
For you I'd give my life at will,
For, you are the one who makes my heart stand still.

Without you, my life is dull,
Your smile warms my deepest soul.
Your laugh is like a thousand bells,
And when you laugh... my heart doth swell.

For every wave that finds the shore,
My heart loves you a thousand times more.
For every bird that sings it's song,
My love for you grows deep and strong.

Always and forever, I'll love you till I die,
And to you, my darling, I cannot lie.
For you, my heart, I'll always endeavor
To love you now, always... and forever.

Thinking Of You

Thinking Of You

As long as my dreams are always of you
As long as a couple means only two
As long as forever contains me and you
 I'm thinking of you...

As long as the moon shines in your eyes
As long as faith will never die
As long as there's love between you and I
 I'm thinking of you...

As long as our eyes meet in burning flame
As long as trust means 'no one's to blame'
As long as the hurt ends in no shame
 I'm thinking of you...

As long as we survive as a pair
As long as I know that you'll always care
As long as love remains true and fair
 I'm thinnking of you...

As long as the calm follows the storm
As long as the need becomes well-worn
As long as I'm safe and left untorn
 I'm thinking of you...

As long as your love keeps me from harm
As long as we're together, I'll always be warm
As long as I stay wrapped in your arms
 I'm thinking of you...

Something About You

Something About You

I don't know how to explain it,
If only you could truly see,
How much I really care for you,
How much you mean to me.

I look forward to seeing you every day,
The grin that belongs only to you,
When I see you I can't help but smile,
There is just something about you.

When you put your hand in mine,
My heart suddenly beats faster,
I wish I could tell you right then and there,
That my life could never be better.

When you wrap your arms around me,
For a simple, gentle hug,
I want to stay in that moment forever,
And tell you how much you really are loved.

When we gradually come close enough together,
Our lips touch, a kiss,
Nothing around us seems to matter,
Because there is nothing sweeter than this.

No words could ever express how much you mean to me,
I hope you have these feelings for me, too;
I can't figure out just what it is,
But there is definitely something very special about you.

Forever I'll Wait

Forever I'll Wait

I sometimes feel my heart will burst
 from wanting you so much
I can't explain in words of how
 I long to feel your touch

There is no way I can convey
 this emptiness inside
That seems to tear my soul to shreds
 as time goes swiftly by

If I could merely hold you near
 for just a little while
If I could simply talk with you
 or only see you smile

To have you look into my eyes
 and wait to hear you say
Something that would help me
 to take this pain away

If I have to wait forever
 I guess that's what I'll do
For me, it will be worth it
 to finally be with you



I miss your smile...
I miss your laugh...
I miss everything about you...
I don't see you anymore...

When i really want to talk to you...
i care so much for you...
I don't understand- what did i do?
I thought something was going to happen between us...

You were sweet and charming with the words you said...
But something happened, i don't know... what went wrong?
I cried so much just laying on my bed...
I say i'm over you... but i really know...

I can't forget you and i never will...
I want you to be there... And you don't even know.

Soul Mates

Soul Mates...

You are my heartbeat.
You are my strength.
You are the only true love I know.
I am yours until the end.

You saved me from all my heartache,
You wiped away my tears.
You kissed away the bad dreams
And blew away my fears.

Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve you.
To know you- is to know a mystery.
To hold you, my one true wish.
And to kiss your lips so softly, Oh...
YOU are what true love is.

Others can?t understand it,
How we fell so fast.
Showing all the people,
That our love overcomes our past.

So now it comes time,
To prove this love so true.
Test after test, we show others
That we?re stronger together,
Stronger than we ever knew.

You are my other half,
The missing link of me.
You complete my soul,
Like no other can ever be.

My Love For you Won't Ever Die

My Love For you Won't Ever Die

My love for you
won't ever die

So by your side
I must lie

I'll make my mark
deep in your soul

Soon my love
will take toll

Your heart might soon
start to burn

Yet desire is what
you'll yearn

Your body and soul
start to ache

Soon my pleasures
will take place

The hunger starts in
as fierce as sin

My love you feel
is leaking in

It's sliding through
your emptry veins

Leading to your heart
full of endless pain

It soothes the racing
of your pulse

Calms your fears
and makes you feel whole

Yet the end
is now coming near

But there's no need
for any fear

My love for you
won't ever die

So by your side
I will lie

Forever and Always
You and I

Walk With Me

Walk With Me

My love for you is deeper
than the vast oceans of blue.
You're the reason I'm here today,
because my heart beats just for you.
You've given your whole life to me;
it's something I hold most dear.
And the day you decide to leave me
is the only day I should fear.
See, 'cus that's the day my soul would die
and my spirit would fly away;
the day you wish to tell me
that you no longer want to stay.
But that day will never reach us
for our love is burning strong.
Our love is pure and perfect
and nothing could ever go wrong.
We've vowed to each other
that we'll be together
until the end of time.
Our hearts, they meet to become one,
and they beat in perfect rhyme.
Today we walk hand in hand
with our faces to the sky,
and I'll walk this way, by your side
until the day I die.
I give to you my everything
and I'll keep up to with your stride.
When the journey is yours and you stand brave
I'll be just a step behind.
You can't ever doubt my love,
otherwise where would we be?
We live this life for each other,
this I know you see.
Just think of me as your proud Angel
who looks down on you with love.
And we'll still be walking hand in hand
when we're walking up above.

At First Sight

At First Sight

They say it can?t happen
but I know it's true
'cuz it happened
the first time I laid my eyes on you

My heart began to flutter
my knees began to shake
and all I could think of was
how to ask for the first date

As the days went on
it kept growing stronger
my heart was overtaken
and it could only grow fonder

The look in your eyes
made me sure I was right
that this could only be...
love at first sight!

Will you??

Will you??

I love, but I am scared
 Will you hurt me?
 Will you leave me?
 Will you mock me?
 Will you love me?
I trust, but I am fearful.
 Will you stay true?
 Will you trust me?
 Will you use me?
 Will you decieve me?
Do I have to ponder these questions,
Or is your love for real?



I fell in love with you
so fast.
People told me that it
wouldn't last.
I always said they were
wrong until one day you
were gone.

You said you loved me,
and that your feelings
were true. I thought you
weren't lying so I said
"I love you too"

They say time will heal
the's been six
months and I still feel
the same.

Why did you hurt? I don't
understand. It's funny how
I can still feel the touch
of your hand.

I think of you and always
cry, wondering why you
never said good-bye.

Why does time take so long?
Why do my feelings have to
be so strong?

Why do they have to be right?
Leaving me with these feelings
to fight.

I sit and wish you'd come to
me, but then I realize it will
never be.

I know that I must go on
'cause now I know you're really

The Real Me

The Real Me

This face that's on the outside
 is just the face you see
The real me on the inside
 is the one that's really me
This face that's on the outside
 looks happy as can be
But the me that's on the inside
 is crying silently

This face that's on the outside
 doesn't give a clue
Of the love that's on the inside
 longing so for you
But this face that's on the outside
 is the only one to be..
Until the day you love me
 then the real me you will see

I do swear that I'll always be there

I do swear that I'll always be there
I'd give anything and everything and
I will always care
Through weakness and strength
Happiness and sorrow, for better, for worse
I will love you with every beat of my heart

From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart

Everyone gets lost in life

Smiles fade as people depart
Be the departure eternal..
Or just a partial start..
Start of a life lived lost and dull..
Dazed and confused is the feel of such..
Never could have thought it would hurt so much..
Some of us are just walking along.. Lost in life..
With a faded smile.. Facing moments of grief and strife..
Wanting to stop right now.. But yet moving on..
‘Cuz they keep saying that’s the way life goes..
We can’t argue..
Because they have already been through..
Their own life.. Lost and told..
What to do..
Some people just don’t get things..
Like that’s the way life is..
It’s just a bitter fact..
So you rather not over react..
‘Cuz once in a while..
Everyone has a faded smile..
And every once in a while..
Everyone gets lost in life..

It was many and many a year ago

It was many and many a year ago
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandlas, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple

Love will find out the Way Over the mountains

Love will find out the Way
Over the mountains
And over the waves,
Under the fountains
And under the graves;
Under floods that are deepest,
Which Neptune obey,
Over rocks that are steepest,
Love will find out the way.
When there is no place
For the glow-worm to lie,
When there is no space
For receipt of a fly;
When the midge dares not venture
Lest herself fast she lay,
If Love come, he will enter
And will find out the way.
You may esteem him
A child for his might;
Or you may deem him
A coward for his flight;
But if she whom Love doth honour
Be conceal'd from the day—
Set a thousand guards upon her,
Love will find out the way.
Some think to lose him
By having him confined;
And some do suppose him,
Poor heart! to be blind;
But if ne'er so close ye wall him,
Do the best that ye may,
Blind Love, if so ye call him,
He will find out his way.
You may train the eagle
To stoop to your fist;
Or you may inveigle
The Phoenix of the east;
The lioness, you may move her
To give over her prey;
But you'll ne'er stop a lover—
He will find out the way.
If the earth it should part him,
He would gallop it o'er;
If the seas should o'erthwart him,
He would swim to the shore;
Should his Love become a swallow,
Through the air to stray,
Love will lend wings to follow,
And will find out the way.
There is no striving
To cross his intent;
There is no contriving
His plots to prevent;
But if once the message greet him
That his True Love doth stay,
If Death should come and meet him,
Love will find out the way!

Live life one day at a time

Live life one day at a time
For it seems that when we are young,
it is all an uphill climb.
But when we get to the top,
we are gravely disappointed.
Because it is the little things in life that matter:
Time spent with family and friends,
and being there for one another.
And time is one thing we cannot take back.
I think that as a society, we are in such
a hurry to achieve all our goals
that we miss out on the one thing
we should conserve
and treasure:
Before we know it, our time is up.
It could be any day, any hour, any minute.
It could be expected or unexpected.
Have you spent your time wisely?
Take this time, this moment, to tell your friends and family
what they mean to you.

i hate even her when i love her

i hate even her when she makes me smile
i hate even her when she makes me cry
i hate even her when she was a child
i hate even her when she was a teen
i hate even her when she comes in to my life
i hate even her when she walk out of my life
i hate even her when i when i admired her
i hate even her when i love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whenever we gather together

Whenever we gather together
The words are not easy to find,
But love speaks a common language
When people have ties that bind.
We don't always say what we're feeling
As often as families should;
We don't count our blessings out loud,
But somehow they're understood.
We know that we're thankful for living
With the comfort of each other's care;
We're grateful for memories and stories,
And the jokes that our family shares.
We might leave a promise unspoken,
But we know that we're loyal and true;
We can count on companions through life,
In the sunshine and shadows, too.
We might show some special attention
To a stranger, acquaintance, or guest,
But we never forget in our hearts
About those that we really love best.
These blessings can never be counted
Like money or gold dividends;
They can only be shared as the love
That exists when families are friends

Where the Sidewalk Ends

Where the Sidewalk Ends

 There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The most important thing we've learned

The most important thing we've learned
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set --
Or better still, just don't install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we've been,
We've watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone's place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they're hypnotised by it,
Until they're absolutely drunk
With all that shocking ghastly junk.
Oh yes, we know it keeps them still,
They don't climb out the window sill,
They never fight or kick or punch,
They leave you free to cook the lunch
And wash the dishes in the sink --
But did you ever stop to think,
To wonder just exactly what
This does to your beloved tot?
'All right!' you'll cry. 'All right!' you'll say,
'But if we take the set away,
What shall we do to entertain
Our darling children? Please explain!'
We'll answer this by asking you,
'What used the darling ones to do?
'How used they keep themselves contented
Before this monster was invented?'
Have you forgotten? Don't you know?
We'll say it very loud and slow:
THEY ... USED ... TO ... READ! They'd READ and READ,
AND READ and READ, and then proceed
To READ some more. Great Scott! Gadzooks!
One half their lives was reading books!
The nursery shelves held books galore!
Books cluttered up the nursery floor!
And in the bedroom, by the bed,
More books were waiting to be read!
Such wondrous, fine, fantastic tales
Of dragons, gypsies, queens, and whales
And treasure isles, and distant shores
Where smugglers rowed with muffled oars,
And pirates wearing purple pants,
And sailing ships and elephants,
And cannibals crouching 'round the pot,
Stirring away at something hot.
(It smells so good, what can it be?
Good gracious, it's Penelope.)
The younger ones had Beatrix Potter
With Mr. Tod, the dirty rotter,
And Squirrel Nutkin, Pigling Bland,
And Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and-
Just How The Camel Got His Hump,
And How the Monkey Lost His Rump,
And Mr. Toad, and bless my soul,
There's Mr. Rate and Mr. Mole-
Oh, books, what books they used to know,
Those children living long ago!
So please, oh please, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.
Then fill the shelves with lots of books,
Ignoring all the dirty looks,
The screams and yells, the bites and kicks,
And children hitting you with sticks-
Fear not, because we promise you
That, in about a week or two
Of having nothing else to do,
They'll now begin to feel the need
Of having something to read.
And once they start -- oh boy, oh boy!
You watch the slowly growing joy
That fills their hearts. They'll grow so keen
They'll wonder what they'd ever seen
In that ridiculous machine,
That nauseating, foul, unclean,
Repulsive television screen!
And later, each and every kid
Will love you more for what you did.

Take this kiss upon the brow

Take this kiss upon the brow
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

I wandered lonely as a cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

How do they do it the ones who make love

How do they do it the ones who make love
without love? Beautiful as dancers,
gliding over each other like ice-skaters
over the ice, fingers hooked
inside each other's bodies, faces
red as steak, wine, wet as the
children at birth whose mothers are going to
give them away. How do they come to the
come to the come to the God come to the
still waters, and not love
the one who came there with them, light
rising slowly as steam off their joined
skin? These are the true religious,
the purists, the pros, the ones who will not
accept a false Messiah, love the
priest instead of the God. They do not
mistake the lover for their own pleasure,
they are like great runners: they know they are alone
with the road surface, the cold, the wind,
the fit of their shoes, their over-all cardio-
vascular health--just factors, like the partner
in the bed, and not the truth, which is the
single body alone in the universe
against its own best time.

Do not go gentle into that good night

Do not go gentle into that good night
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

He loved her and she loved him

He loved her and she loved him
His kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried to
He had no other appetite
She bit him she gnawed him she sucked
She wanted him complete inside her
Safe and sure forever and ever
Their little cries fluttered into the curtains

Her eyes wanted nothing to get away
Her looks nailed down his hands his wrists his elbows
He gripped her hard so that life
Should not drag her from that moment
He wanted all future to cease
He wanted to topple with his arms round her
Off that moment's brink and into nothing
Or everlasting or whatever there was

Her embrace was an immense press
To print him into her bones
His smiles were the garrets of a fairy palace
Where the real world would never come
Her smiles were spider bites
So he would lie still till she felt hungry
His words were occupying armies
Her laughs were an assassin's attempts
His looks were bullets daggers of revenge
His glances were ghosts in the corner with horrible secrets
His whispers were whips and jackboots
Her kisses were lawyers steadily writing
His caresses were the last hooks of a castaway
Her love-tricks were the grinding of locks
And their deep cries crawled over the floors
Like an animal dragging a great trap
His promises were the surgeon's gag
Her promises took the top off his skull
She would get a brooch made of it
His vows pulled out all her sinews
He showed her how to make a love-knot
Her vows put his eyes in formalin
At the back of her secret drawer
Their screams stuck in the wall

Their heads fell apart into sleep like the two halves
Of a lopped melon, but love is hard to stop

In their entwined sleep they exchanged arms and legs
In their dreams their brains took each other hostage

In the morning they wore each other's face
