You are my willing ear, the peaceful sea
On which I sail my thoughts, the quiet tune
Underneath my laughter and my pain.



Thank You

I could write for hours,
Use the finest words in the dictionary,
Fill pages upon pages with verse -
Only two words are needed,
Two words are everything I want to say:

Thank you.

Two words, two syllables
So tiny,
In these words I say so many things -
You are very special,
Holding my hand when the world is too much,
Hugging me when I can not bear life:

Thank you.

I have shown you my heart of hearts,
The person inside I am afraid to reveal.
Your sweet words and sweet face,
Bringing me back from the edge,
All I can do is . . .

Thank you.



Because you cared
I could once again
Get back on my feet
Take up where I left off
Wipe away my tears
And smile again.

Because you cared
You made me stop
My downward slide
And begin again
To take care of
Myself.



Have I ever told you
that if I sit really still and silent,
sometimes. I like to think
I can hear your heart beating
in time with mine?

Have I ever told you
that when you speak to me
through lines and cords,
and bytes and ram,
I imagine whispering into my ear?

Have I ever told you
that I wait out each day
in anticipation,
wanting
only an hour or two,
just a second in space and time,
to feel close to you?

Have I ever told you
that sometimes,
I will reach out,
touching your name
on this cold screen before me,
wishing
I could reach in
and pull you to me?

Have I ever told you
that after the first time I heard
the sound of your voice,
thousands of miles away,
I sat up all night,
turning the conversation over and over
in my mind,
examining it,
like some newly discovered flower?

Have I ever told you
that I dream of you often,
I dream of you reaching out
and touching my hand,
simply to let me know
that you are there,
and everything is okay?

Have I told you lately
that I love you?


There are many miles between us,
But our hearts see not the distance.
Drawing our love even closer,
On this my heart it is insistent.

When we talk my heart sings,
You'll never know the happiness it brings.
Just to hear a word from you,
Keeps my heart from being blue.

I love you truly, yes I do.
I forever want to be with you.
For now I'll settle for the phone,
But know it's in your dreams that I belong

Longing for the day we greet,
Two loving hearts will then get to meet.
Never more to be apart,
Knowing it was long distance we got our start.


Take my hand and lead the way;
tell me all you want to say.
Whisper softly in my ear,
all those things I want to hear.

Kiss my lips and touch my skin;
bring out passions deep within.
Pull me close and hold me near;
take away my pain and fear.

In the darkness of the night,
be my beacon, shine your light.
In the brightness of the sun,
show me that you are the one.

Give me wings so I can fly;
for I can soar when you're nearby.
Enter my heart, break down the wall,
it's time for me to watch it fall.

I've been a prisoner, can't you see?
Break my chains and set me free.
Strip me of my armor tight;
you'll find I won't put up a fight.

Release my soul held deep within . . .
I'm ready now, let love begin.


Out of my dreams
And into my life
You are now here
With me
I told you I loved you
But I was wrong
This is more than love
I feel inside
Nothing more has ever
Felt so strong


Softly I whisper the sound of your name
The joy I feel is overwhelming
You are in the moon that lights my pathway as I walk at night
You make my eyes flash like the stars twinkling in the skies



I want to tell you of a special man
Who looks after me and holds my hand,
You may ask how can that be
When he lives a long way over the sea?

It's very easy
As you will see,
I was sad and scared and the next thing I knew
I searched for and found him on ICQ,

As I got to know him, he filled my eyes with tears
I never received such a joyous gift in all my years,
On the screen I could feel his strong hand,
Eyes closed, touching, feeling the warmth of this man.

Of all the things, I have ever received
None can compare,
To our touching hands, screen to screen.
It is better than diamonds
Better than gold
This hand sent with love for me to hold.



What would I do without you?
What can I possibly say?
I need you every night,
I need you every day.

The love I have inside my heart,
I never could explain.
I'll never do any wrong...
I'll never cause you pain.

When I'm alone and it's just me,
I close my eyes and you're what I see.
Good things come to those who believe...
You came true to me.

I'll be with you every night,
I'll stay with you till the morning light.
You give me so much, I will not leave...
If only I could give you some of what I receive.

When I sleep you're in my mind,
Without your sweet love my heart is blind.
You are too perfect to be true...
You have turned me into a love sick fool.

You have given me the world!
You have brought me through such emotion.
All I have to give you in return...
Is my love and total devotion.

I love you for the inside of you
I love you so much, you know I do
You are my soul mate and my body
My love, you mean everything to me

Though we are so far apart
It seems we are so close together
Our touch is our love
Everlasting for each other

How can I stop this emotion
With you silence can be spoken
Knowing that your love is so true
I knew that this feeling is part of you too

You are my most valuable treasure


Empty...
That's how I feel without you.
Every second we're apart
Feels like an eternity.

You move me, bring me to tears.
Make me feel things I thought I would never feel again.
When I am with you,
I feel a warmth wash over me.
A warmth unlike any I have felt before.
It picks me up and carries me to a far off place,
A beautiful place...
A place where nothing is known but love and caring.
My worries fade to a distant memory,
And all but you is forgotten,
If only for the moment...

I become overwhelmed in your presence, lost...
Lost to my imagination, to the thought of you.
I'm lost in a wonderful dream, and I never want to wake up.

I LOVE YOU!


The very first time I "saw" you,
Was special how we met.
You took me by complete surprise.
I knew my heart was set.

Although I tried to be cautious,
Our friendship grew and grew.
I realized how deeply I cared,
These feelings inside were new.

In time I became attached to you.
Like a hug, I wouldn't let go.
I soon saw how close we were,
And the feeling was good to know.

For you, I write sweet letters and poems.
You are on my mind all day.
The thought of sleeping is nowhere near,
Unless I knew you are okay.

It hit me then, what I was in -
A unique and precious love.
For the person I said was only mine,
Was an angel sent from above.

The minutes without you turn into days,
And the seconds fly too fast.
I could only wish to see you more,
And make each moment last.

The times I spend with you,
Are what make my heart complete.
I know one thing for sure,
Without you, my future is obsolete.

With you, I'm in a whole new world.
You bring out the best in me.
It's hard to picture you not there,
When you taught me who to be.

The road ahead may be hard,
And things may be a bit rough.
But because you and I try so much,
We'll stay strong and get by tough.

And so, each night, beside my bed,
When there's only bright stars to see;
I promise to always be by your side,
And I promise my heart, so hold it tight.



Give me your hand and I'll take you to a place
Greater than you can imagine, as time flies away
We can lie in green pastures, we can bathe in the sea
I see nobody- anywhere...just you and me
Deep blue sky as the sun shines down on us
Puffy clouds as the rain falls upon us
Give me your hand and I'll take you away
To Heaven-on-Earth as time flies away

Lying and cuddling, me in your arms
All that you do for me, keeping me safe from harm
There are no worries, there are no fears
As time flies away, we'll go on through the years
There is no aging and nothing changes
Except my love for you

It seems like a dream, and only a dream
But I'll make it a reality some day
Give me your hand and I'll take you to a place
It starts in our hearts, as time flies away
