To love

which we want to grow stronger each and everyday.

To feel that joy flowing through as you are awake and when you are asleep.

A feeling that never dies for it is something you have always had inside of you.

Sometimes the love you feel flowing through you isn’t for someone else but the love your Lord has sent to you so that you know you are not alone.

It may overwhelm you and make you want to share it and that is okay for that is all he wants you to do.

It is something that grows over time and make you think and care about someone a lot.

It is something that is unlimited and even though you share it a lot there is still a lot of hate out there in the world.

And anger and just being impatient and rude but, all I do is show love and care for it’s better to be on the side that feels good at the end.

Then to feel sorry or just angry for way too long.

Just something

Sweet to eat with you before everything gets busy again.

New changes coming and it’s time to get all done so there is time to relax and enjoy the little things in life.

Time to be together and not apart.

Time to look back and laugh and smile about all the things of the past.

But to look forward to what the future holds for me and us.

Today is just the beginning to something great.

As the holiday

 Comes to a end

This is the time to look at all the decorations that have been given and hung to make the season feel so great.

So many of them bring a smile to your face as they hold a special place in your heart.

This season you love and cherish and when it’s over it’s a little sad.

But, life has to go on and there is always next year.

But in this moment this good mood and good spirit will carry on with you as the year comes to an end and new year begins.

Merry Christmas

 To everyone or happy Hanukkah.

I hope we all enjoy this day even if some of you have to work.

Just be grateful you get to see the day and share the joy with whoever you can.

Enjoy the time with family and friends and enjoy the little moments that will pop up through out the day.

And just know that even if you didn’t get what you wanted, I’m sure you got what you needed and if not don’t wait around for someone else to give it to you.

Because in just a few days it will be a new year and I hope you have plans to make things different but for now have a merry Christmas and I hope every moment of your day is blessed and full of love and laughter.

 Will be a very merry day not because of the presents under the tree.

But, because your spending time with those you love and doing things you love to do.

This is the moment when you can just breathe and not worry about anything other than the food and the times you will be laughing and enjoying your day.

To be merry all the time not just on this day is truly the real meaning and one day maybe we will all be and the anger of the world will finally be less.

Happy Thanksgiving

Everyone I hope you get to enjoy your day whether you are off or have to work.

And hopefully, the weather will be nice it was really windy here last night but I’m hoping to sit back and be able to relax.

For I know black Friday I will be at it again with no hope or luck insight.



 feels like something of the past sometimes when all that rises from you lately is frustration.

 unanswered questions running through your life as your story comes to a stop.

You still wonder what to do and why didn’t you move before it was too late.

Because you overthink it all because you don’t want to be in the same situation all over again.

But the truth is you don’t have the answers and as you keep praying for them.

You just have to have a little faith because it will all come together on it own I hope.

Shower me

with your love as today has been a long day and I really need to feel happiness around me.

To feel the joy of being around each other build up inside of me until there is nothing but excitement inside of me just waiting to come out.

To feel something more than loneliness  for two days where everything is silent at night and the urge to do what needs to get done is more clear now as it has ever been.

It’s time to be covered and surrounded by love for the changes that are happening are not going to throw my life into a bigger mess than it already is.

Days and nights seem to go by so quickly and urge to get up bright and early isn’t something I look forward too on the weekdays and even less on the weekends.

Two days just don’t seem like enough time for me to figure it out before there is a knock on my door and it is time to get out and about as Saturday turns into Sunday which ends us with Sunday and that’s when the stress comes back on but the sleep takes over and the thoughts of everything fade away for a night and some of the morning.

I say

this to you because I love you

and at the end of the day I just want the best.

I know that I’m not the one you are looking for

but, here I am standing near you and just wanting to protect you

from the things we all have become before we try something new this time

I want to lay it all out on the table as you come closer to me to get to know everything we thought was possible at this moment with this thing called love.

I know this moment couldn’t have come at a better time for me and you and for that I know that tomorrow will hand something so much more as you realize that maybe what you had in mind of what I would look like and be like wasn’t the truth.

And it’s time to let go of those past thoughts and dreams and face the facts that every time you wander off you always end up back at my door with the need to be close to me and no one else.
