For Jordan

My Heart!
If I could put my arms around you
And draw your pain into me--- I would.
If I could take your place
to channel away your sorrow---I wouldn't hesitate.

But I can't--We all have our cups to bear.

But as you bear yours, know that I'm here...waiting...praying...
for the return of your smile, your laughter---your growth.

It hurts that we can't always protect our children.
I've never known such sorrow, but I'm thankful for the joy I receive
watching God work and knowing He's protecting you--- He's loving you
even more than I---
I trust Him with your life---But you must trust also!

"Siempre y Siempre"

My heart will never change it's love for you.
It was meant to love you forever.

No matter where you are, or where you go, no matter what---
My love will be there with you.

Always believe that.

There is no perfect love,
But I love you as perfectly as I can.

Time has passed, and life has been lived,
Yet you have been with me in every step ~ in every breath.
You may not have realized it at the time ~ but I have been with you.

If you thought of me for no reason, it was me thinking of you.

As often as I have glanced at the full moon,
I wondered if you were looking at that same moment.
As often as I have watched the rocking motion of the Gulf,
I wondered if your heart was being calmed at that same time.

And whenever I spoke your name 

I hoped to say it often enough so you would eventually hear me.

It is all so confusing,
Yet it is all so clear...

I am in love with you.
I desire you.

It is how I feel.
It is how I have always felt.
And I always will..."Siempre y Siempre"  

Always and forever

This Man

I love a man who burrows to the deepest core of my soul.
When I breathe, I breathe his air.
When I think, I think his thoughts...
When I love~
every ounce of me is poured into him.

I've loved this man,
from the moment I met him~
and I love him still!

I love this man so deeply~
the depth of the abyss pales in comparison...
The width of all the oceans are not enough to reach it...
nor can it be seen from the highest of mountains.

I love YOU, my man.
and Together 
we will diminish that abyss,
cross that ocean,
climb that mountain.

In my arms you will know the love you have never known...

Touching You

bodies like water 
in one direction
yet moving in all directions



yet wild, 
fierce yet cool


soft, wet, refreshing

thirst quenched.
