Linger …

Today …  a very new friend of mine is traveling from NYC to Iceland for 14 days and I find myself obsessed with the very thought of him lingering in my mind, in my thoughts, in my random smile.  As I write, think on this, I hear the song, “Linger” by the Cranberries. Signs are everywhere, if you keep your mind and heart open to them.

I always tend to attempt dating each and every summer … and those months starting with the letter J!  Being June already is no different.  What is different is actually believing this may be a real possibility of me finding myself again, of falling in love – that I won’t get bored, distracted, jaded, disillusioned, overwhelmed.  I won’t make excuses, and go back into hibernation.  I am nearing the end of my 40s and I don’t plan on being alone.  I owe it to myself, and to my Michael’s forever love for me to keep moving forward, accepting love, and no more settling.

We all wish to be wanted, desired – I can easily admit that I need it.
We all want to be understood –  I will no longer settle for less.

I have had so many people I love die way too young.  I want to live with purpose, live more fully for them as well as for myself.  Life moves too fast.  In a blink, you can have it all and lose it all as quickly.

This week, I find myself more alive, carefree.  Wanting … wanting not to be alone.

Longing to be held by strong arms. Feel my fingers entwined with another’s.

Living to anticipate a kiss that takes my breath away …  again.
Looking forward to staying awake until the sun rises.

I want to slow down and listen, breathe it all in.

I want to stare into his eyes, get lost in reliving the moments.

I want to be free to be me around him.
I will sit quietly and wonder if he dares to let our lips linger without fully kissing, breathing me in and holding me tight.

I wish time could stop … I wish I could stop time –  so we can linger.
An honest life is made of moments of both good and bad – I fully understand this.  But right this minute, this instance, this small moment in time, I want my conversations with him to linger … and when I sigh, I want him to sigh.

Is this all too much to wish upon? No – already our conversation linger on my lips …  as always with grace in my step, hope in my heart, smile on my lips …

Love With No Regrets

Every night when my head hits the pillow I go back to you, my forever heart …

I found myself dreaming
In silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie
That every broken heart knows we were walking on moonlight
And you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone

I woke up in tears
With you by my side
A breath of relief
And I realized
No, we’re not promised tomorrow

So I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna hold you
Like I’m saying goodbye wherever we’re standing
I won’t take you for granted ’cause we’ll never know when
When we’ll run out of time so I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you

In the blink of an eye
Just a whisper of smoke
You could lose everything
The truth is you never know

So I’ll kiss you longer baby
Any chance that I get
I’ll make the most of the minutes and love with no regrets

Let’s take our time
To say what we want
Use what we got
Before it’s all gone
‘Cause no, we’re not promised tomorrow

So I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna hold you
Like I’m saying goodbye wherever we’re standing
I won’t take you for granted ’cause we’ll never know when
When we’ll run out of time so I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you

Hey
Whoa

I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna hold you
Like I’m saying goodbye wherever we’re standing
I won’t take you for granted ’cause we’ll never know when
When we’ll run out of time so I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you


I’d Be Lying…

Who knew while flipping channels, I would hear a beautiful voice singing with words that ring so true….

ABC’s the Bachelor brought me to this song …

 

 

Thank you to Bachelor ABC for introducing me to “I’d be lyin'” by Lucy Angel Band!

 

 

 


Bloodstone – Natural High

Why do I keep my mind on you all the time
And I don’t even know you

Why do I feel this way
Thinking about you every day
And I don’t even know you

Take me in your arms
Thrill me with all of your charms

And I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
(I want to take to the sky)
Loving you more ’till the day I die
(On the natural high)
Take to the sky on a natural high
(I want you to be mine)
Loving you more.

If you have anything to do
Call me and I will do it for you
And I don’t even know you

If I only had one wish to give
That wish would be for you to live forever and ever.
When I see you on the street
My heart skips a beat

And I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
(I’ll just take to the sky)
Loving you more till the day I die
(On a natural high)
Take to the sky on a natural high
(Loving you more and I don’t know you)
Loving you more

I’m gonna try to do
All the things you want me to
If you’ll just give me a chance
I’m trying to make something out of a nothing romance
And I don’t even know you

Take me in your arms
Thrill me with all of your charms

And I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving you more ’till the day I die
(To the sky)

I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving you more

And I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving you more ’till the day I die

I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving loving you

I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving you more ’till the day I die

I’ll take to the sky on a natural high
Loving loving you

La la la la la la…


Why Not Me

Suddenly, it came to me surrendering could set me free
Oh, what a comedy
Just when I’d scratched true love from my list
Given up hope such a thing could exist
Then you came along
So it was you all along

You who made me figure out what all those songs are all about
If love could save this whole damn world, then why not me?

Love again,
Like a forgotten friend came round the bend
I’m in love again
I think it’s love

I’ve come to grips with my loneliness
Contented myself with a meaningless kiss
When you came along
So it was you all along

You who made me figure out what all those songs are all about
If love could save this whole damn world,
This beautiful, this mixed up world
Then why not me?


Heaven has another angel…

Came across this poem below and really needed it today. We lost yet another family member, my first cousin, Germancito, after a very long battle with Cancer. He put up a good fight, but God has decided to relieve him of his pain and suffering. It was time for German to join God as one of his angels in heaven. My heart breaks for my aunt, Rosa, his siblings and for his 2 beautiful children. I pray that God gives my family the strength to deal with this immense loss. This was a man that I admired, he was, and always will be such an inspiration to me, his strength was incredible. Rest in peace. Life is so fragile. I wish more people, especially in my immediate family, could see and appreciate how short life truly is and take time to care about others, show more compassion. I feel at times, I care too much, I hurt too deep, but my heart is ever expanding and always forgiving. The sun shines yet again as God took another angel into heaven.

The loss of a love one is so hard to face,
you just want to hide,
go somewhere and escape!
But death is something,
we all must go through,
I know it’s hard,
when it’s someone you loved and knew.

Just know now,
he is in a better place,
no more hurt or pain shall he face.
It seems unfair and yes this is true,
but he is in Heaven now
watching over me and you!

God has called him home to rest!!
And he’s being well taken care of
Because God knows best!

“Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.” ― Leo Tolstoy


Love is the opposite of logic….

Logic is argumentative, aggressive upon the mind, splits the world into right and wrong, us and them. Love is generative, compassionate, embracing all creation. Logic pays attention to what is being said. Love pays attention to how things are said. Logic leads to debate. Love leads to communion. Practice love to be closer to God.


No Regrets…

Here’s a quote from Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love that describes my relationship with who will always be the love of my life…

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”

So with tears in my eyes and great respect for him I say goodbye to who I now know was my soul mate…


I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER

This just had me laughing today…but I am always in need of prayers…

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever, forever, we never will part
Oh, how I’ll love you
Together, together, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
I say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break-time,
I say a little prayer for you.

Forever, forever, you’ll stay in my heart
And I will love you
Forever, forever we never will part
Oh, how I’ll love you
Together, together, that’s how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

My darling believe me,
For me there is no one
But you…


Falling In by Lifehouse

Every time I see your face
My heart takes off on a high speed chase now
Don’t be scared it’s only love
Baby that we’re falling in

I can’t wait, ’till tomorrow
This feeling, has swallowed, me whole
And I know, that I’ve lost, control

This heart that, I’ve followed
Has left me, so hollow that was then, this is now
Yeah you have changed, everything

Every time I see your face
My heart takes off on a high speed chase now
Don’t be scared it’s only love
That we’re falling in

I would never do you wrong
Or let you down or lead you on
Don’t look down it’s only love
Baby that we’re falling in

I’m standing, in your driveway
It’s midnight, and I’m sideways I have
To find, out if you, feel the same

Won’t be easy, have my doubts too
But it’s over, without you I’m just lost, incomplete
Yeah you feel like home, home to me

Every time I see your face
My heart takes off on a high speed chase now
Don’t be scared it’s only love
That we’re falling in

I would never do you wrong (do you wrong)
Or let you down or lead you on (lead you on)
Don’t look down it’s only love
Baby that we’re falling in, falling in
