I'm well and truly loved (Poem)

Posted in:
Update: Just to say that I'll soon get back to posting excerpts of the Gladys and Edward story. I have just signed the contract with my publishers and want to finalize things first. Hopefully things will be clearer by the end of the week. In the meantime, enjoy the poem...

Your love is music in my heart
In the midst of the silent desert
Your love is the warm blanket
Over me in the coldest season
In a dark and heavy sky
It is the brightest star
Your love is a guiding light
In the blackest of night
Through the hardest famine
It feeds me with food and wine
Even in the hottest weather
It cools my lips with water
Your love springs up to fill me
When drought seeks to kill me
So I'm not going to be moved
Because I’m well and truly loved

Expectations II (Poem)

Posted in:
I’ve known you for over a year
Seemed there was naught to fear
You were more than a listening ear
So I told you that I care

Alas I was not left alone to fare
Tis a burden I no more have to bear
We have come together to share
Times of love, pain and cheer

My heart is open and bare
With you as a king without peer
I promise our love will not be mere
When you become my pair

You will be forever near
Others will have to go to the rear
It will no more be there and here
When I call out you will hear

Because you’re to me most fair
You’ll be all I hold dear
I’ll give you tender repair
Just reach out and I'll be there...

Thanks and Giveaways

Posted in: , ,
My blogsville family, thank you all once again for the great wishes you left on my birthday post. I really appreciate it. Those that asked about the template. I got it from YummyLolly blogspot and it's called 'Change me'. My SO helped me to customize it to the colors I wanted and to move the previous blog. He's a real darling.

Now to the giveaways. Do you want to be the first to read the complete Edward and Gladys story? Please leave an Expression of interest with your comments. The first five people who express interest and are in my top twenty commenters will have the chance to read for free. The only thing I will request is that they point out any typos or inconsistencies in the story and send me back a reviewed document. The story is about 180 pages and still in word document.

What does this mean? It means the story is complete. YAYYYY!!!! I have polished and re-polished with the help of my my writing group, my dearest SO, and another wonderful blogger who took an interest early on. I now need fresh eyes to check it out. I have decided to publish the book myself and hope to send it to the publishers (AuthorHouse) by the end of the week. If all goes well, it will be in print by Christmas. Those who prefer an e-book will be able to buy that by mid November.

I will keep publishing excerpts of the novel until the e-book is ready. Then I'll move to the next story I have been thinking about. I'm excited by all this and hope you are too. I remain loyal and thanks again for all the feedback I got in the last three months that have helped me in polishing up the story. When the book is ready, the top three commenters will get free copies of the novel. Those that said they want to see it in print and will buy, please stand by ooo. LOL

Please keep reading and commenting. Thank you all...

My birthday, a new blog template

Posted in:

So today is my birthday but it started yesterday since we're on this corner of the world behind everyone else. Many many thanks to SO who started it off with a bang (no pun intended oo...LOL). So now my blog has a new look though I'm no techie and nothing was lost, whoopie. I love the new look. Let me know what you think please and if I'm missing something.

I have attached some pics of a romantic dinner out we had and may take them down later or at least the one of me. We went to Sky City, a restaurant at the top of the Space Needle here in Seattle. The views were fantastic but the company was better hehehe.

So the gifts are already rolling in. If you need my details to send in yours, let me know. LOL. Permit me to say a MASSIVE thank you for making this blogging adventure and my writing a pleasure to look forward to. Have a glorious week my lovely people, take care.

Saving my all (Poem)

Posted in:
This was written for my SO as a wedding gift

I’ve been saving my words
For the one I love
Now I finally found you
I’ll speak of no other

I’ve been saving my eyes
For the one I love
Now I’ve finally seen you
I’ll look at no other

I’ve been saving my dreams
For the one I love
Now I’ve finally know yours
We can share our dreams

I’ve been saving myself
For the one I love
Now I’ve finally met you
I’ll give it to no other

I’ve been saving my heart
For the one I love
Now I’ve given it to you
It will beat for you alone

I’ve been saving my love
Specially for you
Now you're in my life
We'll be together forever

Expectations. (Poem)

Posted in:
The things of the heart
Are not always as one expects
Thus you came into my heart
Out of the unexpected
At a time that my heart
Could have least expected
I may give you my heart
In hopeful expectation

If you give me your heart
As I very dearly expect
I will enter your heart
As you’ve been expecting
Then another your heart
Will cease to expect
We will become one heart
Just as we had expected

I want to...(Poem)

Posted in:
I want to make you happy
All the days of our life
I want to see you smiling
As I say something nice
I want to satisfy your heart
With every blessing in the world

I want to save your pride
And mend your broken heart
I want to make you forget
That you were ever sad
I want to give you all
That you had ever wanted

I want to bring out the best
That you have inside of you
If only you will let me
I’ll never ever go away
Cos the greatest thing I want
Is just to be with you

I want you to need me (Poem)

Posted in:
A poem I wrote sometime ago for someone special. Trybes asked for some more of my poems so this is it. Hope you all enjoy and tell me what you think...

I want you to need me
Like the air you breathe
I want you to feel me
In everything you do

I want you to love me
And tell me I’m the only one
I want to be the face you see
When you close your eyes

I want to be the touch
You need every single day
I want to be the eyes
That looks deep into your soul

I want to be the part of you
You just can’t live without
I want to be your world
Be everything you ask for

I want to be your reality
Whatever this means and takes
I want to be your fantasy
Be let into your innermost wishes

I want to be your woman
And satisfy your every desire
I want you to need me
Need me like I need you

Definitions of love (Poem)

Posted in:
Leggy said here that "if you dont have a definition for it...then it doesnt exist." I have some definitions and that means that for me love exists. Check them out.

Love is the connection of two hearts
When two people touch each other’s soul

Love is honesty and trust
With patience and understanding

Love is helping one another
When there is mutual respect

Love is walking hand in hand
To reach your dreams together

Love is forgiving the others wrongs
That differences may be worked out

Love is the absolute belief
That there is a happily ever after
