Chapter One

Forever


Forever will I stay
As long as you desire
Like a candle in the wind
We'll keep our love on fire.
Forever will I stay
With you, luv, till tomorrow

Forever will I stay
You take away all sorrow.
For you alone, dear one,
Have taught me how to love

For you alone, dear one,
Were sent here from above.


Always

I'll always be there beside you
Till the ends of the earth do fall
And break into 1,000 pieces
I'll try to be at your beck and call
Till the heavens close down
And the winds do stop their breezes.

I'll always be there to kiss you
And to rub your back when it needs it
I'll always be there to hug you
And love you all to pieces.

Till all of the earth shuts down
And all of life does cease
Our love will go on and on
Its powers never decrease.

Hold my love close – hold my love fast
For fleeting are the nights and days
But eternity goes on for those who love
And forever more it shall stay – always!


In Church

In church on Christmas Day
We found each other, true
With God's blessing from above -
We'll remain bound, me and you -

We are blessed that we both are
Healthy, strong and totally free
With good guidance from above
We'll be together – you and me

In God's hands may we always stay
Not waiver, fall or stray
May we always be in love
And go in the end to up above!


The Ring

Your wedding ring was off
One week before we met
Our love, therefore,
Was truly heaven sent

With each day that passes
Our love grows more and more
For all of our eternity
We will cherish love therefore

My God, how very blessed
That God sent you to me
I will cherish deeply that love
Throughout all eternity!

Now in the quiet of the night
I'm lonely as one can be
May God speed you safely home
And bring you swiftly back to me


My Prayer

My prayer is that you'll love me, dear
And never let me go
It seems but very simple
But it isn't, that I know

My prayer to God each morning, dear
Is for friends both far and near
But mainly and fervently I pray to God
That you will always hold me dear


Bahamian Man

My Bahamian man lives
Not far across the sea
He's from Bahama, North Carolina
And was with the Verizon company

My Bahamian man loves
His family and then me
Bring my Bahamian man home
Always safe and sound to me

My Bahamian man cares
For his poodle and family that be
My Bahamian man is
Such a very special man to me!


Stay

I love you, dear dearly -
It's you that I do adore
If you leave me now, darling
You'll close up my interior door

Forever and ever
I'll never trust another man again
So hold me, kiss me, love me
And stay with me till then

For you I'd lay down my life,
So, please do comprehend
That if you let me go now,
I may never come again


Just Like That

Just like that we fell in love
Like the words of Milt Pittman's song
But just like that you turned around
And suddenly you were gone
I thought we were getting along

You're illusive, yes, that I know
It's hard to figure out your mind
Many things I've learned about you, dear
One thing for sure, you're not blind
And, of course, you are very kind

Baby, just like that, as our friend Milt says
It's yes, all written in the stars
So if it's meant to be someday
The tomorrows and tomorrows will be ours
Be it on Earth, Venus, Jupiter or Mars

So, just like that, hope you'll soon come back
I hope you'll stay a little longer this time
Because a thousand times I've said
To me you're more than a man – you're a little bit divine
This I truly want you to know and always to be mine
I'll make you happy - you'll feel blessed and so very fine
I won't make you work too hard or tow the line
I'll cook for you - we'll daily, grandly dine
Maybe stay up a night or two – a little past nine
For me you'll never ever have to whine or pine
For us the sun will always gaily and brightly shine!


Switching Channels

You say that you love me
Day after day
Then suddenly switch channels -
It blows me away

What demons still haunt you
That won't let you live
In confidence and love
With this woman that forgives?

How long must I endure this -
How long will it take?
Till you stop switching channels
And firmly have faith

I can't wait forever,
Of this I am sure
I'll try to hang on -
I'll try to endure

But when you finally decide
That my channel's right for you
I'll be in such ecstasy
You'll finally have a clue
And a love that will always be true!


Laugh

He makes me laugh -
But I would laugh anyway
He makes me smile
And makes me feel like a child

He treats me like royalty
And holds me forever more
He is a person of loyalty
And will never treat me like I'm poor

A laugh can heal,
A laugh can hurt
It can bring good tears to your eyes
Or can be a laugh that derides
His laugh is always a surprise
Everyone can clearly surmise
That he'd never, ever be my demise
Friends acknowledge all my cries
That he is my forever sunrise!


Love

Love – how can you define it?
You know it from the start
Love – is oh, so very essential
For a truly healthy heart

Love may come, love may go -
But pursue it until the end
Love is oh, so simple -
It's not a passing, fleeting trend
It teaches one to bend

Love – its depth is endless-
It always can forgive
Grab onto love wholly
If you want a good life to live
Peace and comfort it will give


Eternity

The Lord giveth – the Lord taketh
It doesn't seem equal at all to me
But for those who love, those who hope
Eternity shall ever more be.

Yes, I'll find out someday,
But I know in my heart today
That this life is only a start
I've felt it so strongly,
For such a long time
That eternity is really the main part.
From God and love I will never depart.


Dare

Dare to love, to truly love -
Dare to reach out from inside

Dare to dream, to truly dream -
Dare to dream and to inspire

Dare to hope, to truly hope -
Dare to hope and to believe

Dare to love, to truly love -
Be the most loving that you can be

Dare to pray, to truly pray -
That God will touch us with his love

Dare to laugh, to truly laugh -
It will cut people right in half

Dare to live, to truly live -
Be more than you thought you could be

Dare to do all of the above -
Dare to take a chance on me!


Sleep Tight

Sleep tight, sweet one, and dream of me
God grant we'll have another day to love
Another day to play, to pray, to work
And find the sweetest rest, like a peaceful dove

May God's arms wrap around you
And the angels hold you through the night
May your dreams be many and nightmares few
May they prepare you for another day of fight
May they make you strong and dispel all fright
May blessings come forward on you to alight
May each day fill you with wonder and delight
May your mind be open and show you clear sight
May you never have bed bugs that give you a bite
May you someday, yes soon, rise up to the highest height
And love so strongly with all of your might!


The Kiss

You pull me to your lips so warm
My body's strong, yet weak.

You start at my eyes,
Then downward to my feet
And rest your lips lightly
Upon my soft, curved cheek.

You return to my mouth -
Then I slowly part my lips -
I grow slowly with desire
Pulling you softly, all the while -

I am starting more to melt
My body is now on fire
I try to hold back my love,
But it releases like a dove.

You return to my mouth once more
You start anew to kindle me and inspire
Going down, down, down, down, down -
Until the very end you take me higher
Then back again to the other side
Then return to my mouth still again
And light me up once more
My mind now all renewed.

You show me what love is
You've filled me with desire
You've taken my heart – again
My love, I am on fire!


3 - Month Anniversary

Take my love
Take my dreams
Into your heart
Into your schemes

Hold them fast
Hold them true
I will never betray
For, my love, I do love you

It's been three months
The happiest of my life
It hasn't been all fun
There has been a little strife
Sometimes it cuts me like a knife
But then, I'm not at all your wife


Crystal Vision

You looked into my soul,
So clear and oh, so true
With crystal vision of a pro
It's almost like you knew

You showed me colors inside
I did not know were there
And taught my life again
How to flow and always to share

You opened up my heart
That was sleeping like a child
You shook me up and then down
With a force both strong and mild

So, I thank you every night
For loving me so tenderly
With compassion and insight
I hope it evermore shall be.


Ever True

With a heart ever true
That leads me straight to you
And arms that hold you fast
And long only for love to last

All through the night I'll abide
I will stay right by your side
With you the future's bright
I know I'll not now want to take flight

For I love you in all ways
As I have for so many days
May you always know I'm ever true
And realize that I do love you
May God always bring us safely through


The Wave

Like a wave crashing over me
You walked into my life
You turned it upside down
And swirled my world around

With every step of the way
I pray that you will stay
And never veer or stray
For beside you I will lay

Like a wave that thunders down
I'll love you ever so true -
Like the ebbing of the tide,
I will always return to you


Denial

No matter how hard you try
I could never more deny
That I'm in love with you,
My dearest, love – my dream come true

For with you have I found
That I am surely heaven bound
My senses all agree
Beside you I want to be

As much as you will try
To find a way to depart
I'll always draw you back
For you've stolen now my heart


The Meteor

You shattered my world
Like a meteor falling down
You broke it all apart
Like a dagger to the heart

You pieced it all together
Into a strong, new wondrous ball
You stole my heart away
So now there you'll ever stay -

Smash, crash, mash – meteor!
Bring my love together!
Stay with me now, please
In any kind of weather!

May the afterglow still live on
Long after the meteor's gone
Lighting up the path of love
And warming with its strong song


The Torch

You light up my soul
Like the fire from a torch
You build up my desire
And spark my body on fire

You set me all aglow -
Like a candle deep in love
You stole my heart away,
On that day I truly fell!
Deeper, deeper, deeper -
Like the resonance of a church bell

Forever will I remain
As long as you desire -
Like the torch that lights the way
You guide me and inspire
It's to you that I aspire
I know that I can take you higher
If you'll only let me light your fire


My Precious One

You are finer than the purest gold
You outshine the most precious gem
You're brighter than the gleaming silver
You're up there with the best of men

You're sweeter than the sweetest honey
You're as comfortable as a pillow soft
Even though you don't have a ton of money
You're a gentleman and never aloft

What matters in the very end
At least it always did to me -
It's not the price of an item, but
It's value – whatever that might be
It's all the goodness that's inside of thee
And I know that fills me with true glee!


Beside You

Beside you I'll stay
With you every day
Until hell freezes over
In the hot month of June

To laugh and to play,
I'll never go away
Dear, we'll someday be one -
Together very soon!

Just trust in the Lord -
You'll never get bored
He'll see us all through,
I'm devoted to you
My dearest sweetheart!


All Through the Night

All through the night
I just want to bite
That shoulder of yours
So, so very smooth

And press against you
And pull me right through
That soul that is you
That heals and that soothes!

So please come to me
And forever we'll be
Happy- never blue
Yes, it's very true -
Dear heart I love you!


Three Men

I have three men who love me
Their names are not important
I've chosen now the only one -
That's you – who from above was sent

They are all so nice and very sincere
They love me through and through
Yet from the start you won my heart
And I know that our love will be true

I have three men who love me
How lucky can a woman be
Yet deep inside my heart does know
You're the one who sets me free
You're the only one I see


Till

Till the sun no longer cares to shine
I will be yours, my sweet one divine
Till the moon no longer casts its glow
I will be yours in body and soul

Till the gates of heaven close their door,
I pray you'll be mine to the core
Till the stars fall down from the sky
I'll love you deeply, my one true love

Till all the ends of the Earth do break apart
One by one into a thousand pieces
I'll stay with you, yes I will, my love
And love you oh so powerfully strong
Till the winds lose all of their breezes
Till I'm aged and wrought with creases
Till I'm called into the arms of Jesus
Till all of life's bounty decreases
So let's love now till the world itself ceases!


Day Dreaming, Night Dreaming

Day dreaming and I'm thinking of you ...
Night dreaming and I'm dreaming of you ...

You make my days
Pass, oh so sweetly, dear
You make my nights
Shine like the sun without fear

You are my hope and inspiration
You are my sweet reason to be
You fill all of my world
With joy and set me free
So many things you've shown to me

Yes, I could go on and on and on
About your good traits and your wonder
Suffice it to say, succinctly, clearly
That you thrill me like lightening and thunder!

Day dreaming and I'm thinking of you ...
Night dreaming and I'm dreaming of you ...


Hope

I can only hope to dare – to dream
I can only hope to love
That God has sent a love to me
Is a true blessing from above

I can only hope to dare – again
And continue with our love
May God always bless our dreams
And keep our peace just like a dove

I can only, only hope to have
A love forever more
With eyes of a child open wide
I long for love to stay – evermore


Cry

You can make me cry,
Or get misty in the eye
You always say, "I'm sorry"
And "I didn't mean it, hardly."

You pull on my heartstrings -
You can truly make me high -
Yes, for you I think I would die!

You know that I am true -
And never make you blue
For you know I love you so -
I love you through and through


Your Eyes

Your eyes do change, darling
From blue to aqua green
Depending on the color you wear
And the light that's in between

I get lost in those eyes
I did right from the start
They really blew me away
One fine day they took my heart

Every time that I see them
I get lost as if in a dream
I zone out – I merely melt
Sometimes I just want to loudly scream

So always look straight at me
And you'll know I'll stay with you
And your eyes so heavenly
Are only just a small clue
Sometimes stormy, sometimes blue
Oh, how very much I do love you!


Longing

I'm longing for your tender touch
I'm longing for your words,
I'm longing for your sweet, sweet face
I'm longing for what isn't heard.

I'm longing for your arms so strong,
I'm longing for your kiss,
I'm longing for your loving strength,
I'm longing for love's deep bliss.

Until we can be together, dearest
Our longing must remain
But when we meet, our love explodes
And true love we'll find again


Faith

If faith has brought you
To me, love
Then faith will
See us through -

For in my arms
You'll ever stay
You know that
My love is true

For faith we all would rather have
Than blank nothingness to feel
It gives us hope, a reason to live
It shows us what is real

So let it take our lives away
Faith, hope and charity
It's the purest way to go, I'm sure
It's the way to clarity

It's sweet, it's happy, it's sometimes hard
But in the end it's worth it, dear
Hold on to faith, never let it go -
Be honest and sincere

It will wipe away all fear
Straight upward it will steer
Whether one can see or one can hear
It'll guide you far and near
To the place where there's not ever a tear
It's called heaven – hold it dear!


Hold Him

Hold him dear –
Hold him true
He will never, never
Let go of you

Hold him tight
With passion and trust
He will never stray -
Won't leave you in the dust

Hold him and smile
All through your life -
Never let him go
Even through all strife

Hold him alone
For there's no other man
Like him in the world
That can love you as he can
Somehow it surely was a good plan!
