Let love melt into memory and pain into songs

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

I try to fill my arms with her loveliness

I hold her hands and press her to my breast.
I try to fill my arms with her loveliness, to plunder her sweet smile with kisses, to drink
her dark glances with my eyes.
Ah, but, where is it? Who can strain the blue from the sky?
I try to grasp the beauty; it eludes me, leaving only the body in my hands.
Baffled and weary I come back.
How can the body touch the flower which only the spirit may touch?

The meeting that is like all devouring death

Love, my heart longs day and night for the meeting with you for the meeting that is
like all devouring death.
Sweep me away like a storm; take everything I have; break open my sleep and plunder
my dreams. Rob me of my world.
In that devastation, in the utter nakedness of spirit, let us become one in beauty.
Alas for my vain desire. Where is this hope for union except in thee, my God?

Free me from the bonds of your sweetness, my love

Free me from the bonds of your sweetness, my love! No more of this wine of kisses.
This mist of heavy incense stifles my heart.
Open the doors, make room for the morning light. 
I am lost in you, wrapped in the folds of your caresses.
Free me from your spells, and give me back the manhood to offer you my freed heart.

DO not keep to yourself the secret of your heart

DO not keep to yourself the secret of your heart, my friend!
Say it to me, only to me, in secret.
You who smile so gently, softly whisper, my heart will hear it, not my ears. 
The night is deep, the house is silent, the birds' nests are shrouded with sleep.
Speak to me through hesitating tears, through faltering smiles, through sweet shame
and pain, the secret of your heart!

DO not go, my love, without asking my leave

DO not go, my love, without asking my leave.
I have watched all night, and now my eyes are heavy with sleep.
I fear lest I lose you when I am sleeping.
Do not go, my love, without asking my leave. 
I start up and stretch my hands to touch you. I ask myself, "Is it a dream?"
Could I but entangle your feet with my heart and hold them fast to my breast!
Do not go, my love, without asking my leave.

My songs are lost in their depths

My heart, the bird of the wilderness, has found its sky in your eyes.
They are the cradle of the morning, they are the kingdom of the stars.
My songs are lost in their depths.
Let me but soar in that sky, in its lonely immensity.
Let me but cleave its clouds and spread wings in its sunshine.

I could not really believe in love

I never knew about happiness,
I did not think dreams came true,
I could not  really believe in love,
Until I finally met you.

I would spend the time being with you

If I could have all the time in the world,
I know what I would do,
I would spend the time
In pleasure sublime,
Just by being with you.

You have left my broken heart


The time has passed, those days of pain;
You have left my broken heart.
I learned a lesson; I slowly changed,
So tonight, where shall I start?

You say your love has always lived.
Inside those walls it stayed,
While I bore all, and paid the price.
This 'hard heart' you seek, is the one you made.

A year ago there was something left.
I still longed for what we shared.
But you wouldn't stand for it; you took that too.
I knew then... you never cared.

My pride took over; my heart checked out.
I won't return to where I've been.
My first love ever, you broke my heart,
And you'll never do it again.

She blocks me from that song of life

I remember the days when 
My baby danced all night with me.
But now, my memory fades...
Because her twists, only others see  

She blocks me from that song of life.
The nights when I need her most, 
Visions of her wanton strut haunt 
My soul like a cavorting ghost.

What's a wounded husband to do? 
Block off the very love I crave? 
Make my heart as hard as stone, 
Protect myself from the pain she gave.

You tug at my heart


Remove this melancholy that drapes my soul.
Your disagreeable state made me gloomy;
My affection for you has grown unemotional
With no sense of conscience.
You tug at my heart,
You graze my face with your ill-mannered hand,
You use your mouth for encouraging lies
And your eyes program my additions.
On my knees I beg for a remedy;
You savage man, let me retire.
Understand my loathing for you
As I understand your hatred for me.
Let me go, let me be, let me deteriorate
Without your succor.

I see the sun is setting another day gone by


I have no friends
that I go to see;
I have no friends
that come to see me.

Pen and paper
nothing to say;
Hello World,
this is my day.

I become ill
watch my family gather
but just want company...
and watch them scatter.

Lots to talk about
nothing to say;
Hello World,
this is my day.

What I am grasping for
is out of my touch;
why should existing
have to hurt this much.

My ex is quite happy
for he's destroyed me;
brought me here and left me
in "Dreaded Tn".

No one understands... 
Myself?  No, not even I
for "Tn" is the retirement place
where people come to die.

This is not my home of choice
not my idea to be here;
to leave would be a dream come true
on this my mind is clear.

I see the sun is setting
another day gone by;
Bye for now, my World,
for I must go and cry.

You're perfect and so is this love that we share


All I ever wanted was to be part of your heart,
And for us to be together, to never be apart.

No one else in the world can even compare,
You're perfect and so is this love that we share.

We have so much more than I ever thought we would,
I love you more than I ever thought I could.

I promise to give you all I have to give,
I'll do anything for you as long as I live.

In your eyes I see our present, our future and past,
By the way you look at me I know we will last.

I hope that one day you'll come to realize,
How perfect you are when seen through my eyes.

you love and who loves you back is a wonderful feeling

finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we’re gone.

I promise to love you for every moment of forever

Your lips so soft and red, 
the thought of kissing you is stuck in my head. 
Your beauty so bright and warm, 
shinning through the darkest storm.
Your eyes sparkle like stars in the night sky, 
when I stare into them I feel like I am soaring high.
My love for you is pure and true, 
I never stop thinking of you.
The sound of your voice saying "I love you" makes my heart pound 
because I knew I'd truly found my one and only.
I promise to love you for every moment of forever 
and when everything else crumbles, I will never.
I am your armor to protect you from harm, 
like you are to me, a lucky charm.
For you are my heart, my soul, 
baby you are my whole world.

Some people believe that happiness can be found by the amount of money

Some people believe that happiness 
can be found by 
the amount of money you have. 
But, money can not buy everything. 

Money cannot buy 
the feelings that I get 
when My love kisses me gently 
with her sweet lips.

Money cannot buy the way I feel 
when I hold my love so close 
that it feels like my heart 
is beating for the both of us.

Some people think being rich will make you happy 
because, you have money to go anywhere in the world.  
But, I- myself, do not need to travel far 
for, my place is with my love.

People think money can make you happy 
because, you can afford expensive clothes and jewlery.  
But, all I ever do is put on a smile when I'm with my love 
because, that is all I need to wear. 

People count on money to go on exotic trips to the ocean 
So they can explore beneath the sea 
and see things many poeple never will.  
But, the sea of love, I am treading in is much deeper than any other sea.

People think money can bring happiness 
because, the rich get better seats at restaurants.  
But, my seat is always the best 
when I am beside my love.

Poeple think money can buy happiness 
because, they live in large houses. 
But, the house I live in is always the most special one 
when My love is with me in it.

Some people think being rich can buy you happiness..  
sure, it can buy you some 
but, the love I have brings me more happiness 
than all the money in the world could. 

Some people think being rich makes you better than everyone  
They think they have a place reserved in heaven. 
But, that's not something I worry about 
because, with my love, I am already there.

In this world money can get you things  
and it can make you happy  
but, the love I share with My angel 
is more valuable than anything.

Always Love, infinite love

Always Love, infinite love.
There are no disrupts
or divides, 
what beautiful lays in
your heart and mine. 
Our hearts they shine 
with this love inside 
always love 
unstoppable even with time. 
Your love and my love
always together you and I, 
just like the stars 
with an endless shine. 
Love like a drop 
forever in the sea. 
Love always because of this love in you and me.

Thank you my Love for being there

A gentle word like a spark of light,
Illuminates my soul
And as each sound goes deeper,
It's YOU that makes me whole

There is no corner, no dark place,
YOUR LOVE cannot fill
And if the world starts causing waves,
It's your devotion that makes them still

And yes you always speak to me,
In sweet honesty and truth
Your caring heart keeps out the rain,
YOUR LOVE, the ultimate roof

So thank you my Love for being there,
For supporting me, my life
I'll do the same for you, you know,
My Beautiful, Darling Wife.
