    The Wonders Of You


    The years have passed
    like a time capsule
    we've put all things into wishes
    to open at a later date
    to remind us
    the love that exists
    within our hearts is real
    as long as

    ...we believe

    So, I like to take this moment
    to confess the way I feel
    to put into words..

    ~the wonders of you

    you are the rustling in the trees
    the fragrance of lilac blooms
    the beauty of
    colorful butterflies in flight
    the melody of a sunny afternoon
    you are the inspiration
    of every love
    song
    I sing
    you are the 8th wonder
    of my world
    the light that dispels the darkness
    when my illuminance seems dim
    you are my smile
    at the end of every day
    when the sun sets to welcome the moon
    you are my fondest desire
    every second I'm not with you
    you complete the fantasy
    when I imagine love
    you have enhanced my life
    with the promise of tomorrow


    if you doubt my emotions

    aren't as deep as the red sea
    if you think your love
    mean nothing to me
    then stop
    and think again
    if in the silence of
    nocturnal resting
    you mind begins to wander

    if you & I were meant to be

    listen...

    to the beating of your heart
    those in between beats

    it's
    me

    ~always remember

    there will never be...

    a me
    without
    you

    Simply... beautiful Sr!

    A soul-sweet awe followed after the last word slipped through my lips
    This would inspire the most broken of hearts to give love another try.
