Requiem For A Wonderful Soul

I never once wondered about you

Something inside me just knew

I do not toss around adjectives casually 

Although you might not think it

“Wonderful” aptly fits you

A universe within a universe sharing the gifts within you

I find it amazing how you were overlooked 

But we have learned that a blind heart can blind the eyes

The fact that our paths crossed was a disguised blessing 

It didn’t take long to come to that realization 

I believe we both changed that day and in ways we have as of yet discovered 

Wherever you are I hope something catches your attention 

To let you know you are thought of fondly 

A blessing of which is never taken for granted

For sure someday, we will meet again

The Mission 


Prim and proper

Poised and ready to shine 

On a heart stirring mission 

A declaration of affection 

Dressed in their best 

Stunning elegance 

Light awaiting to shine

In the eyes of gratitude

Rock Ballad of The Week: Ten “You’re In My Heart”

I’ve come to know the magic in your eyes,
I’ve come to know the way it feels when a love is real,
You taught me not to hide behind disguise
To let my heart reveal in time, the belief inside
That as long we are together
I’ll be on your side forever
Beside you all the way, to love you come what may
Now until the twelfth of never
You will guide my life’s endeavours
You’re everything I need, you put the strength in me.

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul,
When we’re apart, it’s strong enough to hold
I never doubt or question why
You are my life, the truth it never lies
This love will never die

To paint with all the colours of your smile
To sail the ocean in your eyes is a paradise
Along the road we chose to walk in time
We’ve created other lives, from yours and mine
Hidden in the way I held you
Hidden in the way we kissed
A spark became an ember that waited to exist
I could never live to tell you
All that I have left to say,
For every moment I’m beside you
Takes my breath away

You’re in my heart, your in my soul
You give me hope and shelter from the cold
For when we laugh and when we cry,
It’s in those eyes, this love will never die
