Lost ...

I have this strangest feeling
I am truly lost tonight
Something happened to me
That I do not understand
I am filled with contradictions
I don't know what to say
I feel I have lost something
Of myself along the way
I am searching for tomorrow
But I am lost in yesterday. . .

Be Gentle With My Heart . . . ♥

Go slowly, tread softly
Be gentle with my heart
It is sincere and true
More fragile than you know
Please don't make promises
You know you cannot keep
Don't tease me, don't tempt me
With sweet words that you say
Don't promise me tomorrow
Then turn and walk away
My affection is constant
Far too precious to betray
Come softly, come slowly
Please don't turn to walk away
Come softly, come to me . . . please stay . . .

Buds of Promise

My softest petals I save for thee
I turn my face for your sweetest kiss
In your light I glow for thee
Buds of promise shall bloom for this
And in youthful blossom await your kiss . . .

Each Time You Go Away ...

I thought you had returned to me
and this time you would stay
But now I find you are missing
once again you have gone away

I am following your footsteps
trying to find the way
To the world that you escape to
the world that takes you away

From the warmth that I offer
from my need for you to stay
How much longer must I hurt
when I look for you each day

A search that brings more questions
all I feel is dismay
No answers can be rendered
all I do is lose my way

I feel lost and disheartened
as I struggle to find my way
Back to a place that is familiar
where I would find you each day

To a time that was so precious
a place we once shared
Can you find it in your heart
to come back to me and stay

For my hope is slowly fading
each time you go away . . .

Love's Hope

Love's hope falters and fades
as the lonely moments in time pass
in the long silences between us
But when I think of you
hope is never lost

For it dwells in the places
in my heart
Where warm memories are kept
and feelings of love live on
though the words are not spoken
Yet still I feel happiness
when memories of you come to light
For I feel your presence close to me
and though I cannot reach out and touch you
the warmth of you is only a breath away
Sweet memories of you
shall live on forever in my heart
You shall always be with me
if only in my thoughts and dreams . . .
