My Heart

My Heart
I hid it for years
Didn't want to feel the pain of the hurt the one that left me with it
Walls up to protect the feelings
I met the one and I pushed him away
Not on purpose
I am crying now because I can't remember how to trust
I can't remember how to fall in love
I don't want to lose you
How do I love?
I want the love like my parents
I ask others how did they know?
You're persistent
I asked you why?
You said because there was a twinkle in my eyes
I want to love
I hold you in my arms and a flutter in my heart starts
Instead of asking others I ask you how to love
You place your hand on my heart and say trust you
I want to love you
I want to learn how to love
Lust has left and Love has come in
I want to love
I feel the pounding of my heart
The walls are tumbling down
You kiss me and between the tears
My Heart is awaken
I want to love you
You are teaching me how to love again
My Heart

What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day makes
I love that song but I have been reflecting on life
In 24 hours someone is pushing out a newborn baby into this world
In a day a family is making final decision for a love one
What a difference a day makes
If tomorrow isn't promised to no man
What are you doing today?
Are you writing out your bucket list?
Are you living the bucket list?
What a difference a day makes
I sat down in front of the computer and I cried
I cried because it's been over 60 days since my hands touched the keys
I missed writing ...
I missed the creative juices flowing
What a difference a day makes
I realized that life is too short
That the ones who I love know it
It's not on material items but heartfelt love
I confess my love to you dear
What a difference a day makes
To understand that money doesn't buy happiness
That the richest person is the one who is humble
Yesterday I was blue dear but....
What a difference a day makes
