WATCH YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
The miles they never truly separate
those who are yoked in mind and heart.
It is the soul which animates true love
and feeds their passions from finish to start.
The Dreamers ever look upward in hopes
to catch a glimpse of a magical star
who will guide them to their Beloved
no matter where they are.
Some days are dark and dreary.
Some nights the stars seem not to appear.
Still, the Dreamers never cease their seeking.
They wait until the sky is bright and clear.
No matter how sad or alone you may feel
there is someone special waiting for you.
Never lose faith, and hope and keep star gazing
and watch your dreams one by one come true.
SUDDENLY LEARN TO FLY
Are you sad, my Beloved?
What is this deep, inner yearning that tears at
your tender soul and rips your heart apart?
I am so far from you.
The hands of distance have lifted and carried me even further away
so that I might take a small reprieve from the life that I know.
That I might take in the gifts of celestial splendors.
Be nourished by star bright radiance.
Be filled with lunar hopes and dreams
as the full moon smiles down upon me.
As the night shadows embrace me and
assure me there is nothing to fear.
Nature offers her cornucopia of consolations
and comfort, and yet, I know that I am somehow not alone.
I have made this journey to bask in Solitude
and the warm company of friends of days gone by.
Friends who nurtured me when my heart
was more wounded and fragile than now.
Friends whose echoing words of caring saved me
so many times when Despair nearly swallowed me whole.
When my own internal demons shrieked so madly,
and gnawed at my heart and soul with such ruthless,
insidious ferocity, I almost did not survive.
The years can help heal the soul if we will look upward
and see past the darting, racing shadows that would
enshroud us in empty blackness.
There is magic and healing in friendship.
I have journeyed back to drink from the fountains of yesterday.
And yet, you are somehow here!
You come to me in dreams.
You reach out to me.
You enfold me.
The warmth of your fullness both frightens and delights me.
How can I send you away?
Would you hear me if I spoke your name and
asked you to take leave, at least for now?
So that I might bask in the sweetness of the company
and kindness of old friends and memories.
But alas, I do not know who you really are.
Nor do you know me.
And yet, somehow I feel in my soul that I do know you
very well and could love you for all eternity.
Can such dreams be but the fabrications of a sad heart?
Is your presence a mirage that appears to lift me out of
the abyss of my own loneliness?
Or has your own loneliness been so real that it has
empowered you to step through time and come to me?
I close my eyes and block your image, but you do not fade.
The night has no power to carry your lovely ethereal form away.
What is it that attracts you to me?
Makes you so willing to go so far to be with me?
You have said you can bring me happiness on earth.
That you have waited all your life to meet someone like me.
I can never express how deeply your words touch and move me.
How you stir up an old hope for Love that once nurtured my soul.
Ah, the sweet longing and joyous of hopes of those yesterdays
which seem far longer than they really are.
Yes, how clearly do I recall the ecstasy of complete
surrender to the delights and mysteries of Love.
Yes, my Beloved, I was transported to Aphroditeís
delicious gardens after Cupidís arrow pierced me.
I was willing to give my all to the Beloved who enchanted
me with her smiles, her gleaming eyes and haunting, mysterious gaze.
To think upon her, whisper her name, or envision her image
filled my entire being with the most passionate ardor
and aroused my every hunger.
I ached to caress her beautiful body.
The mere mental image of her would set ablaze my heart and soul,
torrid flames of desire burning me through and through, my body quivering
Throbbing pounding heart beating faster and faster until I
nearly fainted in delirious rapture.
The gods exact a price for their favors.
I ask myself was there poison in Cupidís dart?
Could I have stepped aside and avoided his aim?
Is the ensuing ecstasy then pain worth invoking the godsí names?
My sweet one, I think on you and blow you a kiss from afar.
And I wonder is yearning and longing the poison from Cupidís dart?
Perhaps I can never know anymore than I can know
if broken hearts ever do heal.
But I can wish and hope you are spared all pain.
That you will not call upon the Immortals who perhaps
have far less to offer Mortals than they claim.
Will you walk away or come to me once more in dreams tonight?
wake up feeling you somehow nearby?
Will your spirit come close to comfort and console me
or will you sprout golden, glorious wings
and suddenly learn to fly.
MAKES MY HEART OVERFLOW
I love the way you look at me.
I adore your cute grin and smiles.
Your silly antics I find so delightful
though we are separated by many miles.
The concept called Time does not exist for us.
Our souls embrace in the day and at night in dreams.
I have but to reach out and your image appears.
We soar from star to star and dance on moonbeams.
Often we know what the other is thinking
before our mouths utter that first word.
When you do talk to me it is music to my ears.
How my emotions and soul passions you have stirred.
I donít claim to know much about human love.
My past relationships pierced my tender heart.
Now I thank the gods for the kindness you offer.
You are my goddess, the new Muse of my art.
Letís play in the fields of our dreams
Let me lose myself in your radiant glow.
Destiny holds so many wonders for us.
Thinking of you makes my heart overflow.
NEVER REALLY APART
I look deeply into your eyes
wondering who it is that I see.
Is it you looking at me so kindly,
or is it me looking back at me?
It seems we have so much in common.
I think we share part of the same soul.
Your words sound like they come from my mind.
The deepest thoughts in my heart you know.
I would love to speak with your for an Eternity.
So grateful am I to have found one who shares my mind.
the greatest treat I have ever had.
Rarely do such souls each other find.
I have had meaningful, real connections.
People have come in my life to help me grow.
But I admit that I have never had anyone
echo the feelings in my soul.
The words of the poem you shared with me
are forever etched deeply in my heart.
Though the distance between us is far,
United souls are never really apart.

ALL IS STILL
Love directs the journey of the wind.
She guides the seagull on his flight.
Never clearly can you see her invisible form
in the light of the day or the dark of the night.
She passes through forests and trees,
encircling the clouds, embracing the sky.
The moment you least expect it
Love looks at you through a childís eyes.
She warms your heart and caresses your soul.
She provides you lovely snow on a wintersí day.

Only the soul understands her will.

Hear her murmurs when all is still.

She lives far beyond the horizon.
She swims in the deepest seas.
When you call forth her name,
she answers the soulís fervent plea.

to a voice that is always near.
The Ladyís name is Love.
Let her wipe away your tears.

Teary eyed as you walk the valley.
The taste of life today is tart.
Despair lurks behind the door,
wanting to blind you from hope.

Saying you simply cannot cope.

as powerful as he thinks.
Do not sip the wine he offers.
Only bitter are his drinks.
Call out to Love!
Although gentle she is not weak.
She will take away your sadness
by the caring words she speaks.
LOVE, FILL ME
There is no room inside me for the aches of loneliness.
Love, fill all that is me and all that is not me,
so that I may come into the fullness of myself;
that others may come into their fullness.
All that remains is for me to reach out to you.
Let me take your sweet essence deep inside.
Give it nurturing so that it may grow and expand.
It is time to know Loveís fullness and relate
to all that surrounds me.
Love, permeate me, my cells, my veins, my pores,
my nerves, all of me.
Love, absorb me.
Dance with me and smile upon me with your twinkling eyes.
Time to lose myself in your touch and wonder.
Time to know your dreams, watch you create them
with simplicity, and set them twirling into the
innermost reaches of the heart.
Time for me to dream my own dreams.
To will good things into my life and not be afraid of them.
Time to love all life.
This is the moment.
I lift my arms upward.
With an open heart I am ready to receive.
Love, fill me!
