Every night I count my blessings

and I‘m thankful for each one

’cause I know I‘ve not been promised

I‘ll see the rising sun


Every moment is so precious

every day is special too

but the memories that I treasure most

have all been made with you


You are the love I‘ve longed for

You are my dream come true

and I know each day

that I am Blessed

when I wake up next to you

Somehow, out of all the twists and turns

our lives could have taken, and out of all

the chances we might have missed, it almost

seems like we were given a meant – to – be

moment … to meet, to get to know each

other, and to set the stage for a special



When I’m with you, I know I am in

the presence of someone who makes my

life more complete.  I feel like you’re

my soul mate, and I want you to know

that my world is reassured by you, my

tomorrows need to have you near, so

many of my smiles depend on you and

my heart is so thankful that you are here.

                        I LOVE YOU!




A Soulmate is someone you can

be completely comfortable with.

Someone with whom you share unconditional love

and when you look into each other’s eyes,

you know that you are home.

I’m not sure why
I keep on changing
like I do 

I don’t know 
if it’s good or bad
I really wish I knew.

I fear with all these changes
taking place inside of me, 
others will only notice 
the outer side they see. 

I wish I understood 
what was meant to be,
what’s the point in changing 
if you don’t change with me. 
growing together

Take my hand, my love,

we can grow together. 
I will grow 
and you will grow, 
by my side

Why Does A Heart
That Loves
So Deeply,
Have To Suffer,
Have To Get Broken,
Once Again

Over And Over
Time After Time
Falling For Lovers
That Will Never
Stay Mine

It Can’t Keep Going
On This Way, When Can I Have One
That Won’t Walk Away

I Give My Heart
But When Will I I Learn,
That I Need To Have One,
In Return,
From One That Will
Love Me Forever

Too Many Memories
Still Stay In My Mind
Long Lost Lovers
From  A Far Away Time

Haunting My Dreams
And Whispering Lies
Bringing Back Heartaches
And Tears To My Eyes

How Long Must I Wait
For Time To Heal
The Scars And The Hurts
I’m Forced To Feel

No One Is Flawless
Least Of All Me,
But True Love
Accepts Us
And Let’s Us Be,
In Spite Of It All

And So I Hope,
My Lips Will Soon Kiss
My Forever Lover,
Once Time Has Mended
My Humpty Dumpty Heart
