1. I Write From My Heart


I write from my heart
gentle feelings
surround my soul
my passion is strong and deep.


I take you 
into my thoughts
I give you life
through writing
of love
on wings

I lift you up
not alone 

with you
in my spirit
I feel joy!


 

2. Elvis Presley


Some people see with their eyes,
he saw with his heart
giving his all from the very start
each song a gift
from a voice blessed above
every note he sang with love
gentle soul, as we all know
Elvis, I love you so

A simple country boy 
who loved his Mamma
the sparkle in his eyes dimmed
the day her heart-light died
others watched his fall
with a blind eye - the death of a legend
to those who loved him
he will always be the King!


 

3. Rhythm Of The Waves


The soft rhythm of the waves caress our souls
dancing in the gentle breeze
entering into Paradise.


Melting moments, mellow is the night
racing thoughts captured into one
moonbeams cross a shadowed wall
slow movement, sweet pleasure
flowing across the lovely shore
whispering
and I Love You
softly
and I Love You tenderly
and you love me



4. The Wonder of You


The wonder of you
deep in my heart
keeping me strong
soft and tender, gentle and warm
a combination of your charm
witty and wise beyond belief
sweet dreams come alive

in moments of sleep.


A heart touching my soul
caressing sweetly
now we grow old
seconds are a treasure
being near you

beautiful one
love so true.

 

Once in a lifetime you came along
presenting a gift
the magic of song
whispered

upon a breeze

from above

all we feel now is love.


 

5. Grandma

 

Yesterday is a sweet memory
tomorrow is a gift
butterflies race around my heart
as I think of you
tears sometimes fall 
bittersweet moments we shared
we cried together and felt the same pain
your laughter was my joy
love happened instantly
no guessing no games

my heart knew 

the exact moment 
I saw you
always protecting me 
from harm
words never hurt
you took the pain away
more than anyone can measure
you are my greatest treasure
Grandma.
