Eyes of Love

Standard

if ever i beheld such eyes of love,
upon my life, i swear i see them now
my lover’s heart is purer than the dove
his kisses are like sweet wine o! and how

his touch upon my face as we alone
now dance beneath the stars that light the earth
delights me, truer love i have not known
and in him, i have realized new bright

for every love before this blessed night
had left regret and deepest sorrow sown
my new love dressed in heaven’s purest light
is sweeter than the fairest rose bloom grown

my love now hear my promise fair and pure
so shall our love forever more be true
and when the mountain fail to endure
my love will cover you like morning dew

This is a poem I wrote in 1998. I was so in love. But things got really ugly between us and we broke up after 3 years. I couldn’t imagine loving anyone else then. Now, I’m much happier and have a stable, wonderful husband…Oh, how time changes us…

Saying Goodbye

Standard

Saying goodbye is a hard thing to do
You once loved me, and you know I loved you
Although it hurts, it’s better this way.
It would only get worse if we decided to stay.

Sometimes, it’s just not meant to be
We only saw what we wanted to see
And we tried–but it just wasn’t right
What was there yesterday, is gone tonight

I, yes, I will always love you
But I, no, I cannot stay
The problems we hid so well for so long
Have surfaced, and we can’t hide them away, anymore

You will always hold a place in my heart
Our memories will never die
But love’s over; we now part our ways
Saying “I’m sorry” won’t make anything change

I wish that I could say to you
that it will all be the same again–me and you
But I can’t make that guarantee
Only what’s meant to be can be meant to be

I know someday down the line
I’ll find new love, forever in time
What the future might hold, I cannot see
But I promise I’ll never lose the memories

But sometimes, it’s just not meant to be
We only saw what we wanted to see
And we tried, but it just wasn’t right
What was there yesterday, is gone tonight.

This is a song I wrote in 1997 after a break-up with a boyfriend
