When the Sunshine Awakens


I love when the sunshine awakens on my pillow,

nuzzling closer

whispering her dreams,

I hold on to each

sacred moment,

quietly thankful,

for my most sacred treasure

and the light

of her radiant smile.

Afternoon Tea


We were at the gallery, during afternoon tea,

she sat across from me when I got lost in her eyes….

oceans never ending.

She was the sun radiant

as she smiled,

and whispered, “I love you!”

Yep, I was lost, for sure….

she always amazes me so…..

The Softness of the Golden Sun


In the softness of the golden sun memories sway, flickering

through our hearts,

thoughts of younger love,

of you and I

our boots swishing through the leaves,

holding hands

with gloves on,

and drawing you close,


in our autumn jackets.

My Love, do you remember

that day in the park?


Note: The park is where I asked her to marry me. We’ve always spent alot of time in parks.

He Surrendered His Dragon


He surrendered his dragon as the huge beast bowed at her feet. Her long brown hair flowed behind her

and down her her long white gown trailing in the wind. But she was far from a damsel in distress. A true warrior,

her royalty was the strength of nations. As she gently laid down her shield, she knew he was worthy.

He dismounted and his first line was, “Love does give us the strength……and the courage……to find who we truly are.”

And so it all began….
