    note one

    dearest one,
    i feel your heart
    and for you i know
    this cannot be easy
    not sure of what
    it is i truly feel

    please proceed
    to the center
    of the village
    beside the well
    under the fig tree
    is a heart-shaped
    large black stone
    the second note is there

    note two

    please allow me
    to take my time
    erasing the sun, moon
    and stars
    from the current sky
    so that i can repaint
    and replenish it with the new colors
    you have instilled in my heart

    now please walk to the sea
    written in the sand are the words
    "thank you, my dear heart
    for always supporting me"
    sweep the sand away
    from the word, "always"
    under it is a champagne bottle
    my third note is in it

    note three

    please look left down the beach
    about a quarter mile
    you will see me surrounded
    by the future and the thoughts of you
    a song of joy moving all through me
    sounding almost almost like jazz

    please start walking towards me
    at the exact half way point
    there is an archway
    it will alight with fire
    once we are close enough
    to hear each other breathe
    for the first time
    please meet me exactly halfway
    so that i can give you my heart

    I'm so sorry but he is always by my side and he makes me laugh. Forgive me but I have to follow my heart.

    thank you Nikki <wink>
    i had hoped you'd understand
    say hello to Grand for me
    (smile)


    but no i don't always follow my heart
    sometimes i stay well pass when i should
    trying to do what i think is right
    and end up making a bigger mess of things
    but this time i must toss caution to the wind
    because i love the way this man makes me feel

    but i'm gonna admit...there is like an african sized
    continent of butterflies in my belly
    but i must move forward


    because when i think of him
    and his love touches me inside
    my toes begin to wiggle
    and my smile is gentle
    head tilting to the side


    then my heart knocks softly
    against my ribs


    and i forget to breathe

    and the bed begins to sway

    my body rocking back and forth

    my eyes tightly closed

    tears streaming down my cheeks

    -- biting at my lower lip

    trying not to scream or dream
    worried that if i don't move quick
    and let him know i feel
    he would soon be gone

    so...

    i'm going to be right here
    sitting on the beach by the sea
    shivering in the cold
    knees drawn to my breasts
    holding myself tight
    praying with the moon and stars
    awaiting his arrival

    and if he doesn't show tonight
    i'll be here tomorrow
    praying with the rain and clouds
    talking to the waves that swell
    seagull feathers floating towards me


    and if he doesn't arrive tomorrow

    i will sit here by the sea
    shivering in the cold
    until he does

    because

    Precious
    I am desperately in love
    with your mind
    and if you give me time
    i promise the rest will come

    Ya make me look directly to the left
    And see right though to oust
    As humidity slowly drifts down
    To meet the frozeness of what once came
    The heat continues to get trickeyer
    Frooze yet hot like i said
    Trust it's always a way to ponder as they say
    Yet we come to the same thang
    We do have the answer
    Never feel like there ani't no way to feel!

    i understand and feel you
    my precious friend
    and you know i do

    but sometimes
    even though we have the answer
    it doesn't always reveal itself
    when the heart is the question

    so we just soldier on
    marching towards the left or right
    searching for that special heart
    where our love can finally rest

    tears in my eyes sistah
    holding you in my arms
    praying for us all the best



    what is meant to be...will be

    thank YOU, dearly
    (smile)
