Long Slow Kisses

image27

There’s nothing like long slow kisses,
Pillow soft lips all over me.
My shallow breathless whispers,
Tell the story of ecstasy.
I’ll slowly close my eyes babe,
And see where you can lead.
I feel love growing inside me,
Your kisses liberate me...

Like A Glass of Fine Wine

image28

He is like a tall classic glass of fine wine. I want to breath in his essence, savor his taste for life and appreciate the period of exploration we enjoy with soft kisses at just the right time. He is unique in so many ways. In fact too good to be true some might say...

Only Thought of You Once

image29

I only thought of you once today, and the presence of your essence in my mind has never left for one moment. Yes, there were other matters of life that took their moment of priority, but, you were always there. So I ask myself, when such a meeting occurs will he place your hand in mine...

Bay Splendor

image30

Fingers of sunlight turn cumulus clouds into an endless canvas of pastel colors in a southern evening sky. I watch as they float eloquently across a vibrant estuary of life below. One can stand for hours with toes on the waters edge and look upward in awe to find comfort for body and soul...

Good Music

image31

Laying here daydreaming in a melancholy mood, then I heard that sound again as my body started to tingle. The highs aroused my interest and then the bass began to play. Grooving strong with a bold new rhythm that’s dawned some sunshine on a cloudy day. There's something magic about good music..

Lasting Love

image32

I desire that lasting love of which great memories are made of,
created by two hearts with one beat like parents I know. If life
is a journey in which we believe lets take each step with a
purpose to enjoy it in every way. Let us be like two streams of
consciousness...

No Missing Pieces

I am not anxious anymore. There is an inner peace that comforts me, a trusting security, because now, with the blessing of your love, there are no missing pieces in my life. From the fragments of two hearts once broken, together we have found the very best that love could ever be. In this moment you must know that our love is everything to me. There is perfection in the friendship that is the foundation of what we share. An indescribable connection, that comforts me, the way you care. You listen with your heart, you speak with your spirit, and when I need to feel your presence it manifest daily in endless acts of loving kindness.  Through winding trails of happiness and pain, self discovery and new adventures, we have expanded the realms of friendship and understanding.  Each day the sun rises illuminating a love with power deeper than ocean currents of the pacific and a future together that is brighter than flawless stars that sparkle in the desert sky.  I now see life as it was intended to be, because you have learned how to bring out the very best of me. We have become the best of friends that are now blessed with a love I can only define as Divine.  For that reason my life, our life, will forever be a prayer of thanksgiving. Others can only dream, of what your love for me sincerely means, and I will never take one breath for granted as we now join in sacred vows. When you hurt I want to feel your pain, when your heart sings with happiness mine will reply in the refrain, and I know God above will listen to the sounds of joy that will be our prayer. I am not anxious anymore. There is an inner peace that comforts me, a trusting security, because now, with the blessing of your love, there are no missing pieces in my life. The power of your love has opened the door of my heart to heal and I know only the grace of heaven above could have made me feel this way. I want to reciprocate with my actions and together we will both know the satisfaction of the comfort that comes when two hearts find love in God’s time. You are the friend I have always desired, you are the love that I know God inspired.  In the intimacy of words forever written to express, I pledge my heart, my soul, my best. I want all the world to know, there are no missing pieces anymore, now that I know, my love for you.
