Poem's of Life's Embrace

A Hand to Hold

Take my hand hold it tight
show me the love you are afraid of.

We will laugh,
we will cry we cherish the days gone by.

We wonder through the years with laughter
and tears...oh the pain we feel as we grow old..
We learn from one another or do we?

Everyone wants a hand to hold,
everybody wants a soul to touch.

How can I be so bold...
To tell you I love you so much?

Take my love, treat it right...
Life me up we shall take to flight.

To love each other forever is what we vow...
How are we to know what troubles are in store?

We remain holding, still, donít leave me now.

Everyone wants a hand to hold,
everybody wants a soul to touch.

How can I be so bold...
To tell you I love you so much?

We hurt each other with such harsh words...
We struggle to express ourselves yet,
we want to be as one.

We grow up, we grow older and wiser, or is it bolder?

Tell me why time changes people?
Holding tight still am I.
What is next in this chapter of love?
Is it worth the try?

Everyone wants a hand to hold,
everybody wants a soul to touch...
How can I be so bold,
to tell you I love you so much?

I Want You Beside Me

Being apart from you isn't easy...
I find myself missing you so often,
in so many ways...
but even though we can't be together right now.
gentle thoughts of you fill my days
and dreams of you fill my nights...
No matter what I'm doing,
I know it would be so much nicer
if I could be sharing it with you...
I keep imagining things you'd say
if you were with me now,
or the way you would laugh
if something funny happened,
and next thing I know,
I'm daydreaming about all the things we'll do
when we're together again...
Although the miles
come between us now,
I still feel so close to you,
and I just keep hoping
the days will fly by
because I want you beside me
to talk to,
to hold,
to love.

As the Beauty of the Rose

When wrapped in the light
of the golden sun
The rose opens it's
petals with love.

To drink in the warmth
and care that
God has given.

Starting as a young bud
it grows
into the beauty of
the rose

Rejoicing in the life
it is living.

Love is as the rose
It begins as a smile,
a look, or a gentle hello.

When nourished with the
warmth of the heart
It grows into the beauty
of the rose.

Yet, as the rose,
If your love is not
nourished with warmth
and care,
The petals will fall,
the beauty will fade
And your love will
no longer be there.

Thus, take your love and
embrace it with your heart,
giving as only you can
It will renew in it's beauty
as when love first began.

Growing in the warmth
of your heart,
as graciously as God
has chose.

Showing it's tenderness
to the world,as does the beauty of the rose.
