Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )
I have shared this before but needs to be shared every day, especially on Valentines Day…“Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.” (Felix Adler)…. 🙂
“Portrait of a Friend”
I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.
I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.
I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.
I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.
I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.
I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
I can only love you and be your friend
The weather will appear to be more like Christmas at the North Pole rather than Valentines Day on the prairies… 🙂
But love will not be denied on the path least traveled… “Life gives us brief moments with another, but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime, So live that your memories will be part of your happiness.” (Author Unknown).
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME…
Not enough words to tell you,
Words full of love from the heart,
But I have all eternity to try
This poem will be a start!
You are my everything!
You mean the world to me!
Cannot see life without you
We, our love, were meant to be!
I bathe in your love
That grows stronger each and every day.
That warms my heart and spirit
With each loving word you say!
I awake in the morning, eagerly
Awaiting treasured words from thee,
To feel the precious warmth and love
You and your words do give to me!
Your love gives life a meaning
Gives me a reason to greet the day,
Warms the very depths of my spirit
Keeps the nightly cold at bay!
At times distance may lay between us
No bounds nor distance….does our love know,
Knows no space or time,
As our love continues to grow.
A love that will stand the test of time
Will be there always…forever and ever,
And I will love you still
Beyond the 12th of Never.
( Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Well, I had better close… life, love and adventure awaits… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise….. 🙂
How many ways do I love thee
Too many for mere words to say,
A love that grows and grows in strength
With each and every day!
I love your thoughts, and feelings
Each and every word I treasure,
Warms the heart, spirit and mind
To heights impossible to measure!
I love your laughter, your humor
The gentle teasing, a word here and there,
Present in all our conversations
Present in everything we share.
I love your soft warm eyes
Enchanting with a mysterious hue,
I love your precious heart
That holds the words, I Love You
I love you mostly because you are you
With whose love I’ve been richly blessed,
A love like no other, one of a kind
A eternal love, and eternal happiness!!!
