    The warmth of a baby in
    my arms at rest

    Children laughing and playing
    at their best

    The feel of a man's lips
    engulfing my breast...Yes

    The sound of jazz...

    Yousef Lateef
    Will Downing
    Joshua Redman...

    in my ear az i
    ...shed a tear I
    feel your presence within
    My Sphere

    the light of the Sun
    the shine of the Moon
    the Twinkle of the Starz
    in the Galaxcy

    Pulse-quickening penetration of
    you deep into me,

    the feeling's Intenze
    ...Oh

    ......Soo

    .........Lov

    .............ely

    Herbal tea
    aromatherapy

    God'z love for me and
    minez for HE...

    These are the things that

    Comfort Me

    this is simply beautiful....

    finding comfort in little things/loving things/gentle sweet things...

    almost made me want to curl up and just daydream....
