A Rose Without You

With this rose, I not only give you merely a rose, 
but I give you my heart and soul. 
I send to you all the love I have to give,
and anything else that would give me the 
chance to touch your heart.
With this rose, I reveal all my
thoughts and feelings about you
that I have withheld for so long.
I feel when I am with you... I am like a rose, 
not because of it?s beauty, 
but because I am able to bloom and grow with you.
To me you are like a rose's sunshine, 
so full of energy and light, 
that never does it fail to lift my spirits. 
Just by the sound of your voice and that look in your eye.
I could never tear my eyes from you,
you are able to make my life worth living. 
But, without you, just like a rose, 
I would wither and die. 
Not all at once, but little by little, 
petal by petal. 

Slowly at first, because you have made me 
stronger and stronger each day you're with me.
But eventually, without you, I will lose 
all those beautiful petals you have given me.

Just The Thought Of You

My life is so dark, grim, and cold,
I sit by myself, I've got no one to hold. 
 I see everyone else with their significant other,
I wish I wasn't born, I curse my mother. 
 My life has no point, no meaning at all,
when I'm at home, I have no one to call. 
Then all of a sudden, I think of you,
the sun comes up, reflecting on the mourning dew. 
 Birds start to sing their happy song,
I feel like I could take on King Kong. 
 I am no longer sad, there is nothing I can't do.
And I feel this way, because I thought of you.

The Key To My Heart

I close my eyes
And see your face
I open my eyes
Of you there’s no trace

All of a sudden
I see you there
My tears break out
To much to bare

I want to hold you
You want to hold me
This wonderful love
Is surely meant to be

You come to me
And hold me close
This loving embrace
I love the most

I look in your eyes
I know it is true
My heart never lies
I’m in love with you

Maybe someday
I will be your wife
Because for you
I’d dedicate my life

You are the best thing
That’s happened to me
I hope you also feel like
We’re meant to be

Please understand
You’ve done nothing wrong
Just take my hand
And we’ll continue to stand strong

I’m now yours forever
Even when death does us part
You’ll always have…
The key to my heart.

                  Love Will Live Forever 

Angel Of Love

You came from another world,
My soul is screaming,
Because I'm in love with you.
My heart has burned with love,
The flowers are blooming,
With the exultation of your spirit.

You come to me from another world,
Bringing with you the essence of love,
Because you are the master of love.

Look at me and hear me,
I'm here for you,
I'm your moon and your moonlight too,
I'm your flower garden,
I have come all this way,
I want you to laugh,
To kill all your worries,
To love you.

Finding Love

I wanted a mansion once... that is until I met you,
Now the only place I want to live is inside your heart
I once desired diamonds... until I met you,
Now the only sparkle I need comes from within
I used to crave the finest clothing... until I met you,
Now I want not a single thread to separate our bodies
I once coveted a fancy car... until I met you,
Now I want nothing that would put miles between us
I once prayed for money... until I met you,
Now I want none of the things money can buy
I once yearned for a sense of security... until I met you,
Now my only security comes is knowing you are near
I once dreamt of a prestigious job... until I met you,
Now I find my success in knowing that you are happy
I once asked for the world on a silver platter... until I met you,
Now you are my world and I want for nothing but your touch
Loving you has been my teacher; you taught me not to want
Being with you has been my discovery; you are all that I need
Finding you has been my salvation, I now understand grateful
But perhaps most importantly ...
Your love in return has been my everything.

If Ever You Need Me

If ever you need me,
I'll be right here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.

If ever you need me,
I'll be two steps behind,
To follow in your footsteps,
And hear what's on your mind.

If ever you need me,
You'll never have to fear,
That your presence isn't important,
And your love isn't dear.

If ever you need me,
I'll always be around,
To bring back the laughter,
Where deep in your heart it's found.

You'll never have to worry,
For I'll always be here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.

I am here for you!

Just Friends?

I love you more every day,
My name I long for you to say.
Do you know just how I feel?
Do you know this love is real?
Sometimes I wonder what you think.
When you hear my name, do your cheeks turn pink?
Do you dream about me every night?
Wish to hug me and hold me tight?
Do you think we're meant to be?
Together forever, you and me?
These are the questions that run through my mind,
Your way into my heart, you did find.
It drives me crazy as to what I should do,
Should I risk a friendship and confess to you?
Or should I keep my feelings inside,
Keep them locked up, let them hide?
I just don't know what to do anymore,
My heart it aches, my heart it's sore.
I love you more than you could know,
And I don't want to ever let you go.
So even if I'm just a friend,
I'll always love you until the end...

Somewhere Or Other

Somewhere or other there must surely be
    The face not seen, the voice not heard,
The heart that not yet—never yet—ah me!
    Made answer to my word.

Somewhere or other, may be near or far;
    Past land and sea, clean out of sight;
Beyond the wandering moon, beyond the star
    That tracks her night by night.

Somewhere or other, may be far or near;
    With just a wall, a hedge, between;
With just the last leaves of the dying year
    Fallen on a turf grown green.

When Our Hearts First Meet

I never knew you before that night
but when I first looked in your eyes, I knew you were right.

We danced that very night, I even remember the song.
We talked a lot together and we really got along.

Whenever I saw you after that time,
I could only think how much I wanted you to be mine.

I know when I like someone and that someone was you.
I knew our hearts would be nothing but true.

I couldn't sleep that night, thinking of the dance.
I know someday we will be involved in a true romance.

I woke up the next morning, still thinking of you. 
I really started to like you, I didn't know what to do.

I kept it a secret, inside my heart it stayed.
But I cannot forget the dance and how romantically we swayed.

I wish I could turn back time to that very night,
but now it is only a memory and it is out of sight.
by Heather  Smith

Until I Met You

Before I met you,
I thought I was happy,
and I was,
but I had never known
the rich contentment,
deep satisfaction,
and total fulfillment
you brought to me
when you came into my life.
Before I met you,
I felt a lot of things,
good things,
but I had never experienced
the indescribably intense
feelings I have for you.
Before I met you,
I thought I knew myself,
and I did,
but you looked deep inside me
and found fresh new things
for us to share.
Before I met you,
I thought I knew about love,
but I didn’t,
until I met you...

Happy Valentine's Day

I wondered behind the city walls,
Waiting for the birds of Heaven,
To take me towards You; Angel,
You departed so early,
To the point of no return,
You passed away with the sole tie,
That binds us together,
Please let me see you once,
Allow me one chance,
To see you even in dreams,
And I shall be glad and thankful,
Because I only dreamed to love you,
And be with you,
No matter where, when or how,
Just believe me,
I will no longer stand behind the city walls,
and when my night falls,
I shall see you at the Gates of Heaven...


I Lie To Forget

This lie's become a part of me
For months, I've played this game
Acting like it doesn't hurt
Each time I hear her name

Ignoring what's inside of me
Pretending I've moved on
As if the feelings I once had
For her are somehow gone

Spending each and every day
With happiness and laughs
Forgetting all our memories
Avoiding photographs

But last night when I saw her
For the first time since she left
My heart stopped for a moment...
I couldn't catch my breath

When suddenly it hit me
As the tears started to flow
That even after all this time...
I just can't let her go...

Happy Rose Day - Poetry

A single rose to lane
A single rose to slain
A single rose to hide my pain
A single rose to turn the tide
A single rose to make roads wide
A single rose as my guild
A single rose to rise the soul
A single rose to widen the hole
A single rose to achieve a goal
A single rose to melt the heart
A single rose to force a start
A single rose to cult
A single rose to freeze my body
A single rose to mourn this memory
A single rose to start a life
A single rose to end the strife...

The Love I Feel For You

When I turned the corner,
I saw you down the way.
I smiled and you waved.
My heart melted,
Just watching you look at me.
Someone called and you turned away,
But I’ll keep on looking,
I’ll keep on dreaming of the day,
When you really see
That I don’t want a wave, a nod.
I want to feel your breath on my neck,
Your hands in mine.
I want to see your eyes looking at me
With the love I feel for you.

Promise Ring

I give you this ring
as a promise to you
a promise that I'll be here
and I'll always be true

I promise that I'll hold you
when your day isn't going right
and i will comfort you
through the long cold night

I promise that I'll make you smile
when you feel like dying
I promise that I'll be here
when you feel like crying

I promise that i will guide you
when the future isn't clear
i promise i will be there
to wipe away your every tear

i promise that no matter what
we will make it through
i give you this ring as a promise
A promise that I will always love you.

To a Stranger

Passing stranger! you do not know how longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking, or she I was seeking, (it comes to me as of a dream,)
I have somewhere surely lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall'd as we flit by each other, fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,
You grew up with me, were a boy with me or a girl with me,
I ate with you and slept with you, your body has become not yours only nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes, face, flesh, as we pass, you take of my beard, breast, hands, in return,
I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you when I sit alone or wake at night alone,
I am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.

Lonely Nights

Since you’re gone
There is an empty space
Since you’re gone
The world is not the same

I go back to the places we’ve been
It feels like you’re still there
I live all those moments again
Wishing you were here

Since you’re gone
There is a lonely heart
Since you’re gone
Nothing is like it was

There are memories all over the place
Bringing it back all so clear
I remember all of those days
Wishing you were here

Since you’re gone
There is a heart that bleeds
Since you’re gone
I’m not the man I used to be

I follow you're steps in the snow
The traces disappear
We know what we’ve lost when it’s gone
I’m wishing you were here

All those lonely nights
I lied on my bed and cried
I still think of you
Yes I do...

Just One More Day With You

I'm so sad and depressed
Is all I want to do is rest
I go to sleep at night
But my dreams I just can't fight

I think of you lying in that bed
And wonder if there is anything I could have said
I wish you were still here
But I know that you are still near

I love you more than you know
I just wish you didn't have to go
I just want one more day with you
And I know thats what you would have wanted too

I miss you more and more each day
There is so much more we had to say
I know I will see you again
But my life is just started to begin.
