Because I have you

Standard

I could use some loving

The kind that is real and true

I could use some loving

Will it be from you?

I could use some loving and I don’t know what I’ll do

Because I’m fading fast

From that love him once gave me that wasn’t true

There was no love only poison which I drank

I drank down his words

So the lower I sank

Now my mind is blank

Except for thoughts that were untrue

Now I’m a little blue

But I’ll get over him too

I could use some loving

From someone who actually means it

Someone who isn’t just a good fit

Someone who really cares and understands

Someone to hold my face in their hands

And show me real love

Not falsehoods and ulterior motives

Just be gentle and genuine

Be my lover but also my best friend

Only then can we have no end

And withstand any storm

Because our fierce love will keep us warm

Keep us safe from harm

Because it was you that did charm me

Because I could use some loving

And you knew

So you held on tightly and stuck like glue

After all that you are, all that you do

I no longer need anything

Because I have you

Ode to Mango Smoothies

Standard

Standing, pacing in line,
I don’t even need to decide
Or even think
Which of these nourishing wonders
I will drink.
I say you all lose, had no chance
Because I with certainty
Will choose a large frothy
Mango smoothie!
Juicy and tangy in perfect proportion,
Frosty, succulent, and invigorating as could be
Bright tangerine and ripe,
Oh precious mango you’re my type.
My love, my heart’s utter delight
Because in spite of being a little rough around the edges
If you look closely you’re absolutely beautiful.

There’s something enchanting about your taste
Something no one should ever waste.
So chilly in my trembling, thrilled hand
I try to understand
How something simple like a mango
Can make my tongue do a euphoric tango.
Instantly I’m overflowing
With joy of that mind-numbing beverage.
Completely transcends average
Oh, the taste of you makes me faint
I cannot hold any restraint.

When it comes to sweetly sipping
Your heaven sent drink.
A drink Jesus should replace instead of wine
And fish and loaves of bread
Have an extravagant fountain of magnificent mango flowing over head
Then feed our entire starving world with your
Delicious, sinful pleasure one sip at a time
Save the leftover potion
In an overwhelming motion
To help fight hunger around this planet!
With each gulp, impossible to measure
The amount I treasure this exotic fruit.

Until the next time
I’m back again in line
Humble and meek
My mango smoothie I seek
Irresistible as a lovers touch
How I adore mango smoothies so profoundly
Ordering the drink, the money I pay is nothing
In comparison to the drink I receive, like I’m ripping them off by paying so little
It should be measured by karats instead of pounds
Its net worth resound in millions of Sun kissed smiles
Of each person lucky enough to drink its electrifying taste
A beverage that the Gods would even enjoy
It’s flavor and consumption contagious, oh boy
Perfection at its peak
At my wedding orange and white the theme
Simple yet stunning color scheme
And a mango smoothie in hand
With the finest, most wonderful breathtaking lad in the land
My love and his wife (me)
Toast to forever grasping each other tight, toasting
With mango smoothies that starry night.

Ode to coffee

Standard

From the moment you touch my lips

It’s a special thing; I can barely hold my grip

You feel the air with joy and love

You’re truly a gift from God above

When I pour you into my cup

I quietly and quickly drink you up

I cannot get enough of you

Oh coffee, how I love thee

When I wake up

Or when I’m stressed

You will always know me best

A cup of you will pass my test

And no matter my qualm

After I ingest you I am calm

Your silky brown color

Your wondrous smell

Not a fiber of my being do you repel

It’s heaven when I walk into a room

That’s filled to the brim with your sweet perfume

A cup of coffee is all I need

To be happy, yes indeed

I have special moments with my mom and you

When we drink you together, our fun is simple but true

So no matter how bad my day

A coffee in my hand and it won’t stay that way

Ode to coffee

You’re so simple but so complex

I don’t know what will happen next

My future is one great mystery

But with coffee, I know the best thing will be

My love and I sipping a nice cup of it

That is something that hasn’t happened yet

Coffee lead the way

Although life is about changing, coffee please never go too far away

Forever in my heart, please stay

Still Madly in Love

Standard

The delicate dreams

That slowly stream

Deep inside my mind

What did I find

I found you

All of this internal fighting

All this chaotic writing

This much is true

I’m still madly in love with you

I miss the way you smile

I miss the way you laugh with me

I miss how in the book store we stood so still and quietly.

I miss you soft gray sweater

I especially miss your voice

I don’t have a choice.

You’ve enchanted me heart and soul

I feel like I’ll never be whole

How I’ve tried to move on

I’ve tried to have this feeling gone

But still I cannot shake it

Even though my heart you did break it

I simply cannot understand

Why if all the man in the land

That my heart beats for you

I miss our conversations

I miss my jubilation

Whenever you were near

There was nothing that I could fear

I miss your stunning eyes

How they would take me by surprise

I miss being us just being together

Talking for hours that feels like it could be our forever

The most beautiful thing

Was how my heart would sing

How when you talked to me

I felt so calm, safe, and happy

Because of your time and care

I never once had a nightmare

What I miss most is your embrace

Holding me close so the world I could face

So no matter where I am

No matter what I do

It consumes me inside, but I know

I’m still madly in love with you

I’ll love you in the snow…

Standard

I’ll love you in the snow

I’ll love you on the beach

I’ll love you in the water

I’ll love you on the land

I’ll love you no matter where I go

I will say this speech

I’ll love you in the park

I’ll love you in the store

I’ll love you until I can love no more

Then I will still love you because it’s all I know

This deep love that swallows me whole

I’ll love you when I bowl

I’ll love you when I sleep

I’ll love you when I brush my teeth

I’ll love you when I sing

I’ll love you as I sip coffee

I’ll love you when I dance

I’ll love you when I cry

I’ll love you in advance

I’ll love you when I hike

I’ll love you when I ride my bike

I’ll love you when I eat burgers and cheese fries

I’ll love you while I organize the library

I’ll love you when I read

I’ll love you when I get a job and move out and succeed

I’ll love you until I’m numb and blue

I’ll love you forever

That’s how long I’ll love you

I’ll love you when I garden

When I dress the Christmas tree

I’ll love you when I shovel snow

I’ll love you with such glee

I’ll love you when I clean

I’ll love you when I watch football

I’ll love you while I pray

I’ll love you while I shop

And I will never stop

I’ll love you when all the lights are out and there’s the approaching dawn

I’ll love you until the end of time is gone

And if you love me in return

I could learn to love even more

When our souls interlock

The love will be a shock of energy

My life anew

All because no matter where I am

I will always love you

Because with you in my life, I feel complete I feel whole

Standard

Many, many nights after

Our one big fight

I was in great fright

My body was giving into flight

I had a nightmare that I couldn’t shake

I thought this is more than I can take

I loved you so much it that hurt

You walked over towards me

And very quietly

You wiped my tears

On the sleeves of your shirt

But I just continued to cry

You were so, so worried

You didn’t know why

I was scared I’d lose you for good

That my heart would

Snap in half and break

And never be repaired

I couldn’t think

You handed my a cold drink

Of water and then you wiped my eyes

With your fingers and to my surprise

You said it was your fault

I said no it was mine

Then you did something truly divine

You just held my body in a loving embrace

For a moment there was no one at all in this entire place

My body stopped shaking the longer you held me

Then after our embrace I finally felt free

Suddenly a sweet kiss upon my lips

I could barely could get my grip

You felt it and you helped me not to fall

You then told me to never feel small

You told me “no matter what I do that I’ll always and forever love you”

And although it was tough

I knew love was enough

Enough to get us through

So with a peck

Upon your neck

You held my gaze

It didn’t faze

You

No more tears

From all my fears

Together longer

Now we are stronger too

Suddenly

You get down on one knee

Shock overwhelms my entire body

And before you can say anything

I say I do

You laugh and tell me you have so much more to say

You say this remarkable, beautiful speech about us

My troubles melt away

After I was a sobbing mess

You proposed and I said yes

You put the ring upon my finger

On my hand your hand seems to linger

The tears come again flowing fast

Because I know this Love was meant to last

You kiss my tears away

And that’s just where they will stay

There is so much joy in my soul

Because with you in my life

I feel complete, I feel whole
