This Cowboys Heart

This cowboys heart is made of glass...
falls too fast, dont seem to last.
Searches, but cannot get...
another heart to bond with it.
Temporary's all it finds,
while forever is what's on it's mind.
Wrong is right,
Right is wrong...
Wish it knew where it belonged.
Walls go up,
Walls come down...
Tryin to stay on higher ground.
Someday the time will come,
when this lonley heart will find it's one.
Until that time comes...
this heart will pray,
that it'll survive another day.
No more heartbreaks,
No more pain...
Just the chance to love again.

Waiting for love

I sit here lonley
thinking only
of a love that has eluded me
Where can it be
when is my time
why has god excluded me
each passing day
I hope and pray
that I'll be lead by fate
accross fields of dreams
through hands of time
to find my true soul mate

Forever and a Day

Cherished is the time I spend with you
Looking forward to each day anew
Missing you when you're not here
Holding you in my heart so dear
When we're apart my days are longer
My feelings for you get stonger and stronger
Thinkin of you all day and night
Knowin these feelins are definately right
My heart beats fast
My knees get weak
I can hardly think or speak
When we're together I sit and stare
So happy for every moment you're there
Hoping our time will last forever
That we will always be together
In my life I hope you'll stay
Always, forever and a day

From the day we met
you made me forget
all the pain I've had in past
I realize to my surprise
this loves the kind to last
you've turned my head
with the things you've said
how was I not to fall
you bring out the best in me
I want to give you my all
Today, Tomorrow, and Everyday
I'll express my love every possible way
into my life I welcome you
to start our journey without further adue
I'm sure it's you without a doubt
you are the woman I cant live without
my princess is what I want you to be
so please be mine for eturnity

Staring in the dark filled night
Stars provide my only light
wishing on each one I see
happiness for you and me
I sit and wonder where you are
are you seeing the same star?
I think of nights when I was there
how we used to sit and stare
morning comes with all it's dew
still I sit and think of you
thoughts of you fill my mind
without you I'd be blind
life could show me nothing new
it's only beauty lies in you.

The sky is grey...
Roses have no dew...
Empty is my day...
Feelin so blue...
Here I lay...
Missin you!
I love you!

I thought of you...

I woke this morning
I thought of you
I saw a rose
I thought of you
Covered with the morning dew
I heard a song
I thought of you
Took a walk on the beach
I thought of you
Glanced up at the moon
I thought of you
through the days
through the nights
all I do
is think of you

Matthew Kaufman

When I think, I think of you
You make all my dreams come true
You bring me up when I am down
When I'm with you I'll never frown
With that soft sweet voice, and big brown eyes
I could never tell you lies
Without you I could not survive
Your love is what keeps me alive
When I'm asleep, All I see
Is images of you and me
I'ts plain for anyone to see
That you and I were meant to be
Your in my heart, that's where you'll be
from today through eturnity
Face the facts, because girl it's true
I'm hopelessly in love with you...
My love

Matthew Kaufman

Here I lie in my cell
I just want to scream and yell
I could be home, in bed with you
Making all our dreams come true
Instead I'm here doin' time
All for what? I've done no crime
I signed my name to a form
To protect our contry is what I've sworn
That is why I'm far away
and cannot be with you today
Never will I leave again
I'm not as dumb as I was then
This I promise to you girl
I love you now and always will!

What is a Wife?

A wife is someone who brightens your day
she makes every moment special in a wonderful way
she takes care of buisness and will rarely complain
when you are ill she'll ease the pain
she's a mother, a doctor, a chef, and a friend
she'll stand by your side right up to the end
she'll make you smile on the gloomiest day
she'll melt your heart with the words she'll say
she gives a love so special and sincere
a love that's noticed all of the year
I feel so lucky to have a wife so fine
I want to be with her all of the time
even when I'm so far away
she's here in my heart and that's where she'll stay
I love my wife from the bottom of my heart
and I will continue to love her...
till death do us part!

Infatuation at the start,
The mighty question raced through my heart.
"Is it love?" I cant decide.
That's the question I would ride...
Through the streets of ups and down,
When would I walk on stable ground?
Down the street I see a light,
Now I'm thinking this ain't right.
I decide to follow it,
Then I fall into a pit...
Filled with emotions over my head,
Better think fast or It'll be dead.
I find a rope to get me out,
Now I know without a doubt.
I run to you with lightning speed,
Knowing now it's you I need.
Fron that doy through,
I belong to you...
There isn't anything I wouldn't do.
To prove my love to you is true,
I would die to be with you...

Do You Love?

Slightly modified Originally from Anthony Hopkins in "Meet Joe Black"
It's not what you say...
It's what you don't say.
Not an ounce of excitement
Not a whisper of a thrill
All the passion of a pair of tick mice
Want you to be swept away
sing with rapture
dance like a dervish
be deliriously happy
or at least leave yourself open to be
Love is passion
Someone you cant live without
Fall head over heels
Find someone you can love like crazy
and will love you the same way back
How'd you find them? Well,...
You forget your head
and listen to your heart.
No sense livin your live without this
to make the journey and not fall deeply in love
You haven't lived a life at all
You have to try...
cause if you haven't tried, you haven't lived
Stay open,
Who knows...
Lightning could strike.

Could it be?

Could it be?
Is it that you know just what to say?
To seal in emotional submission
Keeping a pure and patient love at bay.

Can you trust yourself?

Could it be?
That your emotional stability is still on the mend?
Balancing on your tight rope walk
Your choice? Yes, there could be comfort at Journey’s end.

Can you trust in yourself?
With all that you are?

Could it be?
You’re facing this world while addressing all your fears?
Your quest for emotional stability
Expedited concern for only your own tears?

Can you trust in your self?
With all that you are?
With all that you have?

Could it be?
Your warm embrace turned cold?
Due to the uncertainty of your path
Or Simply because now you have no one to hold.

Can you trust in yourself?
With all that you are?
With all that you have?
To give a most valuable gift?

We Were There

It was such a dream -
We were there
I felt you breathing
I danced in your eyes
I stroked your lips
I stole a kiss
It was such a feeling -
We were there
Oh so warm inside and out
I laughed with you
I talked with you
I touched you
I hugged you
Our souls were together
We were there
Angels danced
Stars twinkled a little brighter
The moon smiled at us
The world stopped
No one can understand -
We were there
We became one
for a moment in time
We are now a part of each other
for a lifetime
It was the sweetest of sweet -
We were there
I took a part of you to keep
I gave you a part of me to keep
We gave each other a dream
We were there
by Roxy


If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day.
If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute or two to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day,
assuming you'll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance to make everything right.
There will always be another day to say our "I love you's",
And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do's?"
But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget,
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight..
So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret today,
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today,
whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear,
Take time to say "I'm sorry," "please forgive me," "thank you" or "it's okay".
And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.


I wanna be the face you see when you close your eyes,
I wanna be the touch you need every single night,
I wanna be your fantasy,
And be your reality,
And everything between.
I want you to need me,
Like the air you breathe,
I want you to feel me,
In everything,
I want you to see me in your every dream,
The way that I taste you, feel you, breathe you, need you.
I want you to need me,
Like I need you.
Need me.........
I wanna be the eyes that look deep into your soul,
I wanna be the world to you, I just want it all,
I wanna be your deepest kiss,
The answer to your every wish,
And all you ever need.
I want you to need me,
Like the air that you breathe,
I want you to feel me,
In everything,
I want you to see me,
In your every dream,
The way that I taste you, feel you, breathe you, need you,
I want you to need me,
Need me.........
Because I need you more than you could know,
And I need you to never never let me go,
And I need to be deep inside your heart,
I just want to be everywhere you are.
I wanna be the face you see when you close your eyes,
I wanna be the touch you need every single night,
I wanna be your fantasy,
And be your reality,
And everything between....
I want you to need me,
Like the air that you breathe,
I want you to feel me,
In everything,
I want you to see me,
In your every dream,
Because Baby I taste you , feel you, breathe you, need you,
I want you to need me.........
Need me,,,,,,
Like I need you..........

The Invitation
(by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, a Native American/Indian Elder)

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your
dreams, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon.
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain!

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ectasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.

I want to know if you can be faithful and therefore be trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day, and if you can source your life from God's presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still
stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon,"Yes"!

It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done for the children.

It doesn't interest me who you are, how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

I want to know if you can be with me for eturnity.


Let me be the person
that you walk with in the mountains
Let me be the person
that you pick flowers with
Let me be the person
that you tell all your inner feelings to
Let me be the person
that you talk to in confidence
Let me be the person
that you turn to in sadness
Let me be the person
that you smile with in happiness
Let me be the person
that you



my love, where are you. I have been looking for you all my life. There is a picture of a face in my heart, I look for that face wherever I go. This life seems so hollow without you,there is no pleasure in anything.

I want to feel you besides me, I want to lay my head in your laps, feel your fingers in running through my hair, breath in your body's fragrance. I want to tell you about everything in my life, secrets I haven't told anybody else. I want to tell you about my dreams, my fears and my aspirations.

I want to live with you in my dreamland. Where there will be no problems, no pain and no distractions. It'll be a valley of flowers, of clear cool springs, a carpet of lush green grass spread over the ground. The smell of joy and freedom in the air warming our hearts. In the moonlit nights we'll walk on the beach, with our fingers entwined, your head on my shoulders.

The mere thought of your moonlit white face, with those sensual pink lips, those bottomless eyes, the slender nose, gives my heart a sweet pain, that eternal bliss which warms the heart of lovers."


Love at first sight

Do I believe in love at first sight?
Forgive the laugh, but the question is so naive!
Youthful fancies hardly encompass the complexities
of mature relationships.
True, you are quite beautiful, but one cannot know
true inner beauty at first glance. It's much deeper
and takes time to be revealed.
Your skin is perhaps softer than the flowing foam of
some gently murmuring distant shore, but what of it?
That's not love.
I do notice that your hands are more graceful than a
ballet of swaying boughs and your laughter a dance
of dappled sunlight.
And in your eyes are glimmering pools of joy and tenderness,
warm swirls of innocence and passion, playfulness and
And in your eyes, Beauty laughs and plays and sings
and calls my name.
And Trust with Caution pleads and cooing Passion intervenes,
and Grace extends her open arms, and I surrender silently.
But love at first sight? How can it be?


My Love

My love..
In the biginning I was so lost
and you took my hand.
You guided me and gave me your love.
Looking back over our past
I have now come to understand
How life is a river
flowing toward the great sea.
Along the course, we have traveled for so long,
sometimes fast..
sometimes slow..
but always together, hand in hand.
We braved the storms, rapids and waterfalls.
And, there were many obstacles which made us turn
first one way..
then another..
But, each bend bringing us closer to the great sea.
Throughout our journey we have shared
our lives..
our dreams..
our laughter..
our love..
to be together at the river's end -
at the great sea
A place where our bodily shells are cast away to show
our love flickering brightly.
A place where gold and silver reflects our love
to light our way in soft luminous shades.
A place where diamonds, rubies and precious crystals
sparkle at each of our kisses.
A place where the laughter of children playing
brings us tears of joy and happiness.
A place where the strumming of the angels' harps
weaves soft tapestries on which we lay.
A place where the twinkling of the stars
are our loved ones only dancing about.
A place where we jouney never more.
Do you hear a faint ringing of the captain's bell?
Are we near the river's end?
My love..
Take my hand as we go down to the sea.



I forget all my troubles and problems,
when you come running into my arms.

I loose contact with the reality and pain,
when your eyes suck me into their depths.

When I am feeling down in the dumps,
your angelic face lights up my life.

I feel myself on the top of the world,
when your breathtaking beauty is beside me.

I feign anger at your delightful little pranks,
to get the taste of your innocent apologies.

Yes I know, I am evil to make you suffer,
but your heavenly concerned face makes me selfish.

Are you and all this blissful rapture,
is it real or just a fantasy in my mind.

You will be mine in this world and the next,
I pray to God that this be always true.

Because even heaven will be agonizing,
if you are not there, to be with me.


Just for you

As I think of you tonight,
I envision such a beautiful sight.
The two of us walking hand in hand,
Leaving our footprints in the soft white sand.
Stopping and staring up into the sky,
In the back of my mind wondering why.
Why me? How come I'm the lucky one,
Is there something special I could've done.
Nevertheless she's here in my arms,
Keeping her safe from life's little harms.
Looking so deeply into her eyes,
Feeling a feeling I hope never dies.
A feeling of being so out of control,
Oh my word, it's my heart she has stole.
Wanting this to always last,
Living for now, and not in the past.
Making sacrifices and opening your heart,
Allowing this to become a huge part.
A part of something yet to appear,
But sharing together love, laughter, and fear.
Thank you for being a part of me,
And allowing me to truly see.
See the love and life I have with you,
And being able to begin a life anew.


Wishes of a Lover

As I look out at the majestic sea,
I know you and I were meant to be.
I only wish I could make you see
how much your love means to me.
I wish I could walk up to you
and speak the words that lovers do.
But now I sit here sad and blue
wishing that I could be with you.


I said I love you Baby &
I said I care. So when I tell
you that I love you darling
don't you understand
it means that I am
always gonna be
there. You see I'm not
gonna leave you. I ain't
going nowhere. When I
tell you I love you
**** Baby ****
I'll be


What is trust I thought to myself,
Something sold or bought on a shelf?
Something found on a deserted beach?
Something completely out of reach?
Without a doubt it's none of the above,
But it's a huge part of that word love.
It's something earned and something given,
Not something tough or hard driven.
Helps a person admit when they're worng,
Helps a relationship grow to be strong.
Trust is something meant to be shared,
Not to be doubted or to be dared.
Trust is something meant not to be broken,
Only felt, shared, and frequently spoken.
Just sit back and let trust lead the way,
And allow me to love you more and more each day!


My knees start to shake,
when you're in sight.
My mind's filled with wonder,
my heart with fright.

When will this feeling stop?
When did it start?
How can I listen to my mind,
Without breaking my heart?

I'm so confused.
What should I do?
I can't think of anything,
except of you.

Should I ignore you?
Or just give it time?
I can't think straight,
my heart controls my mind!

Your Love

Hate is what i know
Love is open to grow
I have not loved Before
But you i do adore
I've never felt this way
There's nothing i can say
Express my feeling's ........ How
I want you here right now
There's nothing i can do
To win the love of you

By Lora


I know we are connected at the heart,
But why do we have to be so far apart?
I need you every minute of every day,
The way your precious eyes look at me that gentle way.

Your arms around me, our lips together.
It must be impossible to get any better.
I wish time would stand still, so we could just be in love.
Something this perfect, sent from above.

Tell me you love me, and hold me too tight.
Kiss me and touch me all through the night.
It seems like eternity when we're not together,
I'm in love with you, baby, from now til forever.


Three Roses

I give you this rose
This vibrant yellow rose
To symbolize friendship
The friendship we have with each other

Now I give you this rose
This fresh white rose
To symbolize pureness
The pureness in our hearts

Alas I give you this rose
This single red rose
To symbolize love
The love I have for you

I have given you three roses
The yellow one of friendship
The white one of pureness
And the red one of love

Together they symbolize
The friendship we have
And the pureness of the love
The love my heart holds for you


What is Love?

What is love?
Is saying I love you, love?
That couldnt be love could it?
Is kissing someone love?
Or holding their hand?
Or spending time with them?
Is that love?
That might be love.

What is love?
Is it thinking about them?
Or not being able to be without them?
Is it being there when they need you?
Or listening to them talk, even when you dont want to?
Is it sending them roses?
Or even chocolate or cards?
Or maybe, just maybe,
There is no defenition for love.


Study me
Hold me
Let your body enfold me

Love me totally
Delightfully slow
Until our bodies cease to flow

Joyfully weary we'll slumber in our glow,

As we await our chance
and explore
one another
tenderly again



You arrived so unexpectedly that special night
Bringing me the hope of the love I thought was lost.
And though we live so very far away
No distance can keep you from being locked in my heart.

I feel your presence all around me
I see your warm smile, I feel your gentle touch
I hear your voice whisper, "I love you sweetheart"
This bond between us will live on forever.

And until that wonderful day when we are finally united
You'll remain safely locked in my heart.

When the night is dark and dreary
And the loneliness has set in
I look for my shining star
And feel your presence once again

You've made my dreams worth dreaming
Your strength has been my guide
You've given each day new meaning
My shining star radiant in the sky

I'm comforted by the words you've written to me
I listen to our songs
They fill my heart with a longing
For you to hold me in your arms

We don't know what tomorrow will bring
But surely you must know
You will always be my shining star
Because my love, you are in my soul



The one I love is all I need
To set my heart ablaze
The one I love is the center of
My life in many ways.

The one I love is part of me,
Companion to my dreams
And is the main ingredient
In all my thoughts, it seems.

The one I love supports me through
The challenges I face
And knows the healing power
Of a warm and fond embrace.

The one I love responds to me
My spirits can renew
The one I love is full of passion;
The one I love is you!

Bruce B. Wilmer


I'd like to know myself as well as I think you do.
You take my fantasies and make them all come true.

You may not know my touch, nor the texture of my skin.
But you've held me in your arms, time and time again.

To feel your soft caress would mean more than you could know.
You've opened up my heart. I can feel our friendship grow.

Though you can not kiss my lips, nor take me by the hand.
You've touched my very soul. I hope you understand.

Whether this is right or wrong. These feelings can't be denied.
To reject them, there's no point. I know my love, I've tried.

Who cares just why we met. Let's be thankful. Here we're free.
I know I'll not regret. The time you share with me.

This time alone we share, gave me joy right from the start.
From me to you my hope, my love, my heart



It may be a fantasy but feelings are there
So strong the feelings that they share
Yearn they do just ever so much
For each others tender touch
A beautiful fantasy this love they feel
Filling their heart that is so real

Their bodies never meet but their souls never part
Forever that special place is in their burning heart
Where ever they may go either day or night
It is their love they feel just burning so bright
Using that love to help them through
Each day and night with all the things they do

Always they dream of when together they'll be
In a real life and not just a fantasy
Those dreams are the fuel from which they feed
To keep them going in this life they lead
Believing that someday it could become real
And have someone to see and not only feel

© Lou 7/30/97

I dream a dream when I think of you
And then I wonder, do you dream too?
And if you do, would I then find
That sometimes too, I dwell upon your mind?
For if these dreams would all come true
They'd bring together just me and you
To love and live in a world sublime
Just dreaming on and on 'til the end of time.

by Harold Albert


Before I met you I was just
A lonely dream in flight,
A heart without an anchor,
A season without light.

My hopes still craved an answer,
My spirit sought to grow,
My life still needed someone
To set my soul aglow.

But when the moment happened
And we joined in heart and mind,
A life of new discovery
Was tenderly defined.

We learned to walk the path of sharing,
Talked and laughed and cared.
Our fondness for each other
Was in truth and warmth declared.

And soon we knew that passion
Was the gift that two receive
When they embrace the feeling
That their love will never leave.

Bruce B. Wilmer


Our paths converged and softly touched
Our hearts moved close in greeting
It was a time to sample change
It was a time for meeting.

An accident of chance became
Our lasting gift that day
Some paths may cross but do not always
Join in such a way.

I'm glad you've shared your life with me
And made this moment prime
The future will preserve the warmth
That fills this precious time.

The present is a prize
That you have helped to make complete
I'm glad that fate arranged a way
For you and me to meet.

Bruce B. Wilmer


You're special to me
You're someone I trust.
I treasure the topics
That we have discussed.

I'm thankful for times
You have summoned a smile.
I'm grateful our paths
Have converged for a while.

I'm pleased by each confidence
You have displayed.
I cherish these moments
You've sought to persuade.

I'm touched by the gestures
Of kindness you've shown.
I've noticed how fast
All our hours have flown.

I'm feeling the force
Of a friendship that's true.
I'm fortunate knowing
A person like you.

Bruce B. Wilmer

A Special Star

I stared up into the heavens
Looking for a special star;
One caught my eye: I grabbed it -
Very closely, I put it to my heart;
Endlessly, it shined so bright -
Young and pulsating, it's brightness grew
Until one day, I finally understood -
Understood that this star was my love for you.


Heart and Soul

I saw you again today,
and my feelings, I can't control.
The feelings that I have for you,
fill up my heart and soul.
Every word you speak to me,
I treasure deep inside,
and I feel my love grow stronger,
a love I no longer can hide.
Every little touch you give,
makes my heart beat out of control,
and no one knows these feelings,
except my heart and soul.



I'm tired of these city


who always act tough and rough.

I wanna man who says he cant get enough.

I'm sick of all these men who need egos to prove


or need to fight to maintain their pride,

I wanna man who has never lied.

I've had enough of these city men

who don't give a damn,

I'm headed to the country

to find me a cowboy man.

So goodbye city life,

I'm not coming back.

I'm going to the country with the people few,

and the love is true.

And who knows, I just may buy a

little black cowgirl hat

My Heart

It's the greatest gift that I can give

And I'm giving it to you

It's been broken several times

And repaired with lots of tape and glue

It's my heart I give to you

Please be gentle with it

Treat it with great care

It's been fractured too many times

It needs someone who cares

I don't give this gift

Without a lot of thought

But I will tell you

What is on my mind

And what is in my heart

You came along when I was sad

And made my life complete

You came along when I was down

And swept me off my feet

There's no one I'd rather love

And here is where I will stay

I just can't wait

To get home and see you everyday

My heart beats faster

When you are around

Your touch

Turns me inside out

So my heart I give to you

So love it and cherish it

And I'll do the same for you.
