You look through me with eyes of blue,
Searching for answers to questions that bother you.
Why are you afraid to just come out and ask?
Have I ever given you a reason to retract?
What mystery are you trying to solve,
Or are you trying to find a place to lay fault?

You wear your emotions in plain sight,
Yet you tell me everything is just right.
What is the enigma you think that is there?
Why do you believe you need to beware?
Instead of making up things to worry about,
Just open up and let the questions out.

I won’t lie and I won’t hide from your fears,
And I certainly won’t give you reason for tears.
My love for you grows every day so strong,
There is no reason to fear things are going wrong.
Take a breath and look deep into my eyes,
Baby, I love you, I will never tell you lies.

There is nothing, that would take me from you,
My heart belongs to you, and it will always be true.
I am yours, body and soul, yours alone,
My thoughts and heart will never roam.
Even when we are not in each other’s sight,
I am still standing there close by your side.

So, don’t look through me like I am made of glass,
Look inside me and you’ll find a love that is steadfast.
I will hold you, as you hold me each day,
I need you, as you need me, to find our way.
We were cut from the same cloth, you once said,
Look closely there are still no gaps between the threads.




I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.
