    from da distance
    our journey home
    seem so far our
    love hoover ova
    the notions
    my heart search
    for the house of
    reasons and find
    u standing there
    awaiting my love

    in warm whispers
    u moan the lovin
    wordz to ear but
    the vacant voice
    of hollow temple
    remain the same
    HOUSE not a HOME
    without ya embrace
    u standing afar in
    the distance
    like yesterday
    but tomorrow
    i know of u and
    what we have
    but inside the magical
    mirror lay the confession

    where only answers be
    but da house just not
    a home without ya love
    beside me upon me and
    tenderly i give u back
    compassionate comfort
    and lovin warmth

    This was a beautiful flow, love the way you used the comparison of the vacant cold house, with the love filled, warm home. Keep the flow going.

    I look for you
    I as well went on a journey
    for love of the deepest kind
    the house of hearts
    that wraps my heart
    looking for that
    understanding and reason
    awaiting your love
    which has indeed
    filled a vacant lot
    with 2 hearts
    that beats in time
    removing that hollow
    feeling, as i step
    toward you
    hand in hand
    to remain in your embrace
    not fearing tomorrow
    in the secure
    warm protection
    of your compassionate comfort

    much love
    Peace
    BlueWater:heart:

    Brother...
    there is something about
    thinking of love as a house
    and a home...the haven
    to which your heart...
    finds solace, refuge and joy...
    indeed a house is so much more
    when love resides...

    Beautiful Brother...Absolutely Beautiful... :luvv:
