He was always a romantic...and a very considerate man. I've typed up some more for you all.. get ready All but the last one are mine...some written for Monty, some for Michael. It was like Peyton Place there for awhile..
Enjoy... and remember.. these were all written in 1973-1974...when we were all alot younger!
(written for Monty)
The stars stand out in the dark sky
The wind whispers through the trees
I close my eyes once again
To be with you in my mind
There is no one standing close now
No more warming words to ease the pain
Only loneliness engulfs me now
As I think back to you
Why hath God separated that
Which we thought was one
I do not question His wisdom now
I only ache for you
And if we never touch again
How cruel can love be?
I'll remember you throughout my life
And the special moments we shared.
"Never Ceasing, Never Ending"
Teardrops fall one by one
Flowing continuously forward
Never ceasing, never ending
Breaking from the soul.
Pain that comes quick and fast
Or sometimes slow and aching
Tearing at my very soul
Feeling the heart that's breaking
Help me to bear this weight
Give me the strength at last
Stop the aching loneliness inside that dwells
Each time I remember the past.
"Love's Sweet Words"
Gentleness abounds within,
His deepened soul, my closest friend.
Quietly begun one summer night
Has grown so strong,
We know it's right.
Such closeness as was never known
As love flourished, the seeds were sown
One knows the other with heightened sense,
Our sincere words with no pretense
Rare is such warmth I feel inside
Never known on the nights I've cried
All the hurt and emptiness will melt
After knowing all the love I've felt
Dear God, please let it last this time
A broken heart is such a crime
Happiness is the only goal
Which soothes my heart and makes me whole.
"No More Pain"
(written for Michael)
My love is my existence
I did not live before feeling his gentle love
My heart was aching for someone to want me
Someone to love me in return
This I have found at last
In his beautiful deep eyes and tender hands
He stands before me - the image of all I ever needed
If I should lose him I will surely perish
Keep close to me darling, and trust what I say
I am drawn to you more and more each day
Please love me always, as I will you
For I could not stand the pain if you took your love away
(written for Michael)
Sometimes my life resembles raindrops falling
Each part contributing to a whole
Every second that passes brings me closer
Closer to knowing what my purpose is.
Life is a puzzle, new pieces created every day
For a long time, there was a big space
In my life's puzzle
Which is now filled by you.
Bitter-sweet memories of our pasts do not matter anymore,
Because together we shall create new memories to share
Ones that will remain in our lives forever
Even after our youth is gone.
"Language, A Fond Embrace"
(written by Michael a week before our wedding)
What words are there, that can half reveal
The love inside for you I feel?
Language is but a fond embrace
A kiss does little, but touch the face
The earth is but a revolving star,
A broken heart, a lonely scar
I feel it with each breath I take
I feel it in the darkest night
And in the morning when I wake
My love for you is ever bright
I want to hold you in my sleep
I want to dry the tears you weep
I need to bear your weighted mind,
For peace of heart, you deserve to find
I shall not ponder on the past
And wonder why it did not last
I shall stand steadfast before the eyes of God
And stand in footprints where He would have me trod
A war rages mightily within my mind
I fight for survival, lest I find
Myself on knees as a coward be
For all who care of me to see
But I will not shelter from attack
For courage is one thing, I do not lack
I will not sacrifice self-respect
For the one I love, I will not neglect
She will be mine in a time to be,
And all who thought different will at last see
That happiness, I brought to her
And a loving heart, that did not stir
God grant us strength, when in the face
Of boldest lies that cause disgrace
And help us through this troubled time
When life is no longer a nursery rhyme
And keep our love as ever true,
As the love inside our hearts for You.
The stars that stand out in the twilight sky,
In a billion years grow dim and die
But the love we share will always be
It will never wane or go astray
And in the darkest day we'll see
The love that God did bring our way
It's Not About Age, It's About Life
