the stars…
and I
never felt we had a chance
you make us shine

giving love
so deep and pure
my heart sometimes skips,
sometimes trips,
over fears
and wasted worries
you make it shine

I love you
not with words
and empty promises
but with life.
and I live that love
in breathless wonder
as you…
make it shine…


Forever Valentine


Forever Valentine

I see you in the distance
and I long to kiss your smile
it’s such an empty feeling
when you leave me for a while
I never thought of love as something
needed to survive
but I don’t want to see another day
without your eyes…

you’re gentle and you’re thoughtful
and there’s sunshine in your face
excitement by the minute
you’re my leather and my lace
my solid wall for leaning
that I’ve grown accustomed to
and I don’t want to live another sunset
without you…

if I could ever find the words
to paint this picture right
I’d write them in the stars above
and whisper them at night
for you have been the reason
for this flowing heart of mine
my perfect love, from God above..
forever valentine…

If You Were My Valentine


If You Were My Valentine

If you were my valentine
I’d search the endless skies
to find the perfect starlight
that would compliment your eyes
and keep it in a wishing well
created just for you
and filled with my desires
to make all your dreams come true

if you were my valentine
I’d find the softest rose
to gently brush against
those sweetest lips, the angels chose
my heart is like a flower
craving for your morning kiss
mere words cannot pay homage
to a passion such as this

if you were my valentine
I’d treasure every day
the arms that open to me
and the tender words you say
I can’t imagine dreaming
of another soul so sweet
for, if your were my valentine
my life would be complete…





sunday morning, 600AM
straight out of your dreamlike existence
here you are again
filling my head with unmentionable thoughts
scratching my back
with your passionate words
your long fingers
counting out the reasons
why love needs
to seek love
to feel love

I see you
I feel you
but, still I want to breathe you

many lives go unchanged
in part, because of needs
but change is the only
certain thing
after all

we live
miles away
but there are
only inches
between our hearts
and I have my ear
on your chest
listening intently..

I don’t want
to miss
a single beat…


A Different Situation



In a different situation
You could be me
And I might be watching and wondering
From a safe distance

But trust isn’t something
I can sell you
You have to buy into it
On your own
Assuming all the risk
And believing that the goods
Are for real

They are
You can
You will

I hope.


Christmas In Your Eyes


Christmas In Your Eyes

Winter’s chill is in the air
and lonely hearts are everywhere
they search the faces in the crowd
and fight the urge to cry out loud
and slowly wander home to pray
that love will come, and love will stay
for love’s the one and only thing
they hope that Christmas morn will bring.

I’ve shopped for presents, hung the lights
and lived a thousand lonely nights
wrapped the boxes, tied the bows
and second-guessed the paths I’ve chose
I’ve built beginnings from the ends
and gave the time to help a friend
but never did I realize
that I’d find Christmas.. in your eyes..

Life is funny, love is tough
the rules are never clear enough
the greatest struggles love demands
are simply softened, holding hands
now you’ve got wishes, I’ve got dreams
with rainbows in our color scheme
of moonlit walks and starry skies
since I’ve found Christmas.. in your eyes..

you’re such a heaven-sent surprise.

Foolish Game

Foolish Game

Did you ever try and see
what’s going on inside of me ?
did you care
when I told you any time,
just call
I’d give you anything at all
if you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play

do you want to see me plead ?
cause babe, you’re all I’d ever need
I’m a man
won’t you take me as I am
not a fool in love
no, it’s something far above
won’t you stay
and stop this foolish game you play

Is there something wrong with me ?
that keeps me waiting patiently
for your time
and hope you’ll change your crazy mind
it’s unreal
if I could only show you how I feel
I think you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play

did you ever try and see
what’s going on inside of me ?
I think you’d say
you’d stop this foolish game you play
