#Loveuary ❤ Day 27 – To Be Loved

My Sister Ritu http://butismileanyway.com has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.


To Be Loved

To have that acceptance 

For someone to say

“I love you as you are”

Makes you feel like a champ

Everyday

Leaps And Bounds 


There is nothing I want more 

Than to close the distance rapidly 

Free falling into the silence

No parachute, no wings

Building that bridge piece by piece

The flames of this last crusade engulf me

There are moments that I am mere ashes blowing in the wind

But faith always pulls me together 

And God teaches me to fly a little further each day

We continue to grow in this together 

By leaps and bounds

#Loveuary ❤ Day 26 – Devotion 

My Sister Ritu http://butismileanyway.com has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.


Even when I’m dead, I’ll swim through the Earth,like a mermaid of the soil, just to be next to your bones. – Jeffrey McDaniel


Sometimes 

I have no words 

To express Love

Which is more than words 

It is these times 

I am drowning 

In overwhelming gratitude

    Believe me, I have had a celebrity crush or two or … you get it. Here are a few ❤

    Greta Garbo – After seeing her in “Ninotchka” I was goner, head over heels ❤ and still to this day 😍

    Barbara Eden – “I Dream of Jeannie” Enough said! ❤

    Alicia Keys – She was a judge on “The Voice”, I wished I were on her team…I wish I could sing…oh how I wish I could sing! ❤

    Sheila E. – Just watch her “Glamorous Life” video and it will all make sense ❤

    Joan Jett – She has her own rock band and plays guitar…love at first sight and sound! ❤


     Vanessa Williams – She was the first African American woman to be named Miss American and of course as a young lad I immediately went into crush overload ❤❤❤

    Well there you have it. Some of my crushes over the years and I thank my sister Ritu for getting me all starry eyed again…lol ❤
