Are You? And am I?
Lori Lockheart

Are you thinking of me tonight?
Tell me, are you?
Oh, how I need to know.

You are so many miles away,
But I can just see you there,
Resting on the ocean.  

I know this place is the only peace for you.
Could it be because it was so special to us?

Are you ok, or are you still hurting inside?
Tell me, are you?
When we met in the rain, that last time,
I felt all your pain,
Just as if I had lost my brother too.

Are you needing me now?
Tell me, are you?
And can you hear the sound?
The sound of my heart sobbing with such ache.
Because I need you, I need to help you,
And I need you to need me.

I donít want to add to your pain.
I donít want to make you feel even more loss
Because weíre not together.
Yet I want to be a part of you, always.

Are you always going to haunt my life?
Are you always going to visit my thoughts without an invitation
And with no warning at all?

Are those sexy eyes, that erotic smile,
And your seductive being
Going to remember me for the rest of your life?

Oh, blue eyes, are you always going to be a part of my soul?
And am I ever going to be able to move on past your hold?

Am I?


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance. And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance - I hope you dance.
song by LeeAnn Womack

It's hard not to know the answers isn't it Lori?  Well, they will come. . . maybe not in our time. . . but they will come. . . just don't miss them. . .

Excellent poem. . .

Oh my goodness Lori, How could you know all the questions???  I can not believe that someone I have never met could know the inside of me so well, Aside from J.M. there is no one that I have connected with so fully....all I can say is we mus be triplets....lol  

Are you needing me now?
Tell me, are you?
And can you hear the sound?
The sound of my heart sobbing with such ache.
Because I need you, I need to help you,
And I need you to need me.

WOW!!!! Lori this is excellent, the depth that you went to write this is awesome.  Thank you for sharing this piece of you!!  **Angel Wing Hugs**...for they ask nothing in return.

This is wonderful Lori, and so moving ... so many questions, and so few answers as yet. I really enjoyed this, well done!

Best wishes,

Because I need you, I need to help you,
And I need you to need me.

I donít want to add to your pain.
I donít want to make you feel even more loss
Because weíre not together.
Yet I want to be a part of you, always.

Are you always going to haunt my life?
Are you always going to visit my thoughts without an invitation
And with no warning at all?

And am I ever going to be able to move on past your hold?

*sigh*
well you KNOW you wrote my heart in this one...
and I know the lingering love sometimes brings pain,
as we feel like were not able to move on...
but for me...I try to savor every second of it...
cause I know I am so much better for having been touched by him...
even with the hurt that follows the loss or seperation.
so if i was to answer your question...

"Are you always going to visit my thoughts without an invitation
And with no warning at all?"

Id have to say...YES if your LUCKY. *smile*
but thats just me and my hearts opinion.
sometimes me muse lives by the old adage...
misery loves company  
later-lori-gator.

PS to my sweet butterfly
TRIPLETS?? LOL
NOW THERE IS A SCARY THOUGHT!!:\  
we need a girls nite out and see just how much damge this threesome could do!! LOL
love ya girlie-girls

Emotions of love and longing are very well expressed in this, Lori!
