Saturday February 28 A Month Of Love from BJ Neblett

We've come to the end of another month. Spring is almost here. Just as the day's go on... let your love continue. Just as the earth is renewed with the blessings of the new season... find new, fun and exciting ways to continually renew your love for one another.

"See with your mind...
      Speak with your heart...
            Touch with your eyes...
                  Love with your entire being."
                                     BJ Neblett
                                                                "Elysian Dreams"

Time goes by so slowly and time can do so much/
Are you still mine/
I need your love/
I need your love/
God speed your love to me/

                                                                                  BJ Neblett

I hope you have enjoyed this month of love as much as I have enjoy bringing it to you. But just because we have come to the end of the month doesn't mean that the love has to end. As mentioned here before, love is a marathon not a sprint. It isn't easy, but it is well worth the trip. And like any journey, there will be detours, obstacles and rough spots along the way. But in the words of Bob Marley, "... if she's (he's) worth it you won't give up..." Thanks for all of the kind words and comments to this blog and my writer's blog. As always I will continue to make irregular posts of my poetry and other thoughts and musings here; and more stories to my writer's blog. I look forward to a great 2015 including more stories, more romance shorts and maybe even a new novel or two. So, as they say, stay tuned! God bless and continue to share the love.
BJ

You give me love, you keep right on giving/

By CA Griffin

We are lovely in our pain
Individually sparkling like diamonds hewn by pressure
Capturing light and glowing
Glistening with the dew of our tears

Beautiful in our despair
Raw and open
Passionate and honest

Ah the purity of truth as revealed in conflict
How revealing it is
Sloughing the detritus
Removing the shell
Exposing what we feel

And growing
There is no value in only joy
Endless sun scorches the flesh

And evolving
There is no value in only pain
Swirling waters drown the body

But in balance
We welcome who we are meant to be

And the way you look tonight/

Sometimes the heart does what it wants without asking the brain... often that's a good thing...

You can save your breath 'cause I can't hear/
You may be right but I don't care/
There's a million reasons why I should give you up/
But the heart wants what it wants/

            “We are the sum total of our experiences. Those experiences – be they positive or negative – make us the person we are, at any given point in our lives. And, like a flowing river, those same experiences, and those yet to come, continue to influence and reshape the person we are, and the person we become. None of us are the same as we were yesterday, nor will be tomorrow.”

I want to be inside you

Inside your mind
To know how you feel

Inside your heart
And know the things you hide

I want to be inside you
And fill your life with love

Mi Amor Es Tuyo

© 2013, 2015

Whatever you do wherever you go
You will always know
My love is yours

Though near though far I’ll be by your side
A heart to abide
My love is yours

Thru space and thru time although we’re apart
You stay in my heart
My love is yours

From valley below to rainbow on high
I’ll shout and I’ll sigh
My love is yours

            As tender as a kiss
            My empty arms enfold you
            And as strong as a tear
            My empty heart longs for you

By day or by night you’ll never regret
Please never forget
My love is yours

I pledge and I vow the words of my song
To never do wrong
My love is yours

Whatever you do wherever you go
May you always know
My love is yours

Whatever you do wherever you go
So you’ll always know
Mi amor es tuyo

Love knows no boundaries... seeks no guidance... obeys no rules... 

If a man could be in two places at one time/
I'd be with you/
Tomorrow and today/
Beside you all the way/

                                 Said Spring to Winter            Said Winter to Spring
                                      In silence we meet              Don’t ask me my name
                                  Specter of my dreams                   I am just a man
                                The future in your eyes            Do not seek tomorrow
                                    Uncertain but true                   And it will be yours
                                    How am I to know                  Ask me no questions
                                 What truths will I find                 I’ll tell you no lies
                                        Your gift to me                          Take all I offer
                                        Afraid to open                        As long as it lasts
                                   The longings inside             Don’t question your heart
                                Untouched and frozen                And love will be ours

Hello again. Look for a new romance story Sunday on my writer's blog. In the mean time enjoy this week's story along with today's nod to love from my friend, writer CA Griffin

Love is never easy... especially when it come to expressing it...

Every time I tried to tell you the words just came out wrong/
So I'll have to say I love you in a song



(Click the title for the YouTube link)

Love is….

Love is a gift
Wrapped in embraces and ribboned with kisses

Love is a treasure
Long searched for yet found buried deep inside one’s own heart

Love is a blessing
Sent from above on a dove’s wings and
Felt with every caress

Love is a song
Its melody reverberating in your soul
And heard in your loved one’s sigh

Love is a summons
From your heart to run into his arms
And feel safe and warm

Love is a request
From her soul to your heart to hold her tight
And never let go

Love is an epiphany
When all the turmoil is quieted and the clouds
Lift at the mere thought that they are near

Love is a wonder, Love is a comfort, Love is a dream come true,
Love
is a sacrifice, Love is devotion, fulfillment, endearing, thoughtful, kind, caring, peaceful, strength, honor…

Love is the two of you together at last.

The Gift
BJ Neblett
©  2013/2014

Once I was a lover
Through youthful eyes I saw
The world a brightly wrapped package
Each dawn Christmas day

My heart I sent before me
Its glow lit my path
The girls who did abide me
I loved them everyone

With poems wise and tender
With songs both sweet and sad
My love boxed gay and brightly
A gift of the pilgrim soul

Many a heart would tarry
Many a breast would sing
Each gentle touch a promise
And every kiss a lie

Each moon would enrapture
Each sun revealed the truth
The package prized and desired
The gift inside ignored

And so my soul did wander
Cold years marked my path
Unopened and unwanted
My gift inside to die

Love’s song but a memory
Heart’s glow a flickering light
Through dimming eyes I saw you
A rose against the snow

My gift all but forgotten
The wrappings torn and brown
You took the love within me
Unquestioned for your own
