Asking do you Remember? With an assistance from MJ

Do YOU REMEMBER THE TIME you came into my life and stole my heart LIKE A SMOOTH CRIMINAL? I smiled and asked your name. You smiled back and said DIRTY DIANA. Well, well that’s a bit unusual I thought but so were you. There was no doubt that you were OFF THE WALL and knew I CAN’t LET HER GET AWAY. So, despite my heart beating a mile a minute I played it cool. I’ve seen you around Dirty Diana and I have to say you are a PRETTY YOUNG THING but I suspect you just might be DANGEROUS. You laughed and said I can be when I want to, but that just ANOTHER PART OF ME. Most of the time I’m really quite harmless. Than you said I’ve seen you around too your name’s BEN right and I know YOU ARE NOT ALONE. What’s her name? BILLIE JEAN right. She’s the one who ROCK WITH YOU? Her? No, she’s old news SHE’S OUT OF MY LIFE now. Then I took a leap of faith and put it all out there. Look I’m not going play games with you it’s as easy as ABC it’s THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL I just want to SCREAM that SHE’S DRIVES ME WILD. You blushed and said so you WANNA BE STARTING SOMETHING with me huh? I CAN’T HELP IT I REPLIED you are BAD. Well you said I just might feel the same way. Then you hesitated for a second before looking at me and saying who am I kidding take my hand CAN YOU FEEL IT I’m trembling. THIS IS IT I thought THE GIRL IS MINE. So, right there and without hesitation I said GIRL DON’T TAKE YOUR LOVE FROM ME and to this day you haven’t.

Because of You

Because of you I want to be the man that

Opens your door.
Cooks your dinner.
Gives you flowers just because.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Takes the time to truly understand you.
Supports and encourages you.
Fulfills your wants and desires.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Is a strong shoulder for you to lean on.
Is a sounding board for you to vent to.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Never stop telling you I love with my words.
Never stop showing you I love her with my actions.

Because of you I want to be the man that

With every kiss leave you lost in the moment of passion so powerful it says I will always love you and I will never leave your side.

Because of you I want to be that man.Be the man

Thank You For Walking Away

As I look back now I guess I owe you an apology. An apology for being so mad when you turned and walked away from us. What I really should have been was thankful.

Confused? Don’t be, it simple really.

You see I committed my heart to you, assumed you really meant it when you said you loved me, and that we would always be together. That day you left I can’t lie it hurt, hurt like hell. Would I be wrong to say you never really loved me? Maybe, I don’t know, I guess in your own way you thought you did. But the truth for me is that I would have been cheating myself if I had settled for you.

Why?

Well it’s been some time since that day you walked away, and I have had time to reflect and heal and out of that came this realization; I’m a catch. Now maybe you couldn’t see it but trust me when I tell you others do.

You see I recognize now that I’m not that perfect man you were looking for, if he even exists. But what I am is a man who will always be there for the one I love.  A man who will always respect and treat my woman like a queen and the woman that I have committed my heart to now appreciates that and loves me for who I am. She is accepting of me for me, imperfections and all, just as I am of her. We do this because we realize that a relationship is seldom two perfect people finding each other, it’s two imperfect people finding each other and are willing to work together to make each other better. I suspect one day you’ll find someone new and fool them until you can’t. But I wish you only happiness, like everyone you deserve to be happy. Sadly, though I suspect you’ll never find that happiness until you learn what true love is, hopefully one day you will. In the meantime good luck and thank you again for walking away.

Have you ever had a love that you were so sure was real? What if it wasn’t

You looked at me and asked, had I ever had a love that I was sure was real? What if it wasn’t? What if the other person only said they loved you? How would you know the difference between true love and just words?

I was puzzled but you continued. When love was first conceived you said it was pure, it never gave up, never lost faith, was always hopeful and endured through every circumstance. It was that pure love that first bonded together couples. But over time people corrupted it, used it for their own gains and selfish purposes. They told others they loved them when in fact they never did. Those who have been hurt and allowed that experience to remain with them will never be free to experience true love again.  But it has been said that true love will return to those who open their hearts to it and there are those of us who have spent our entire lives looking for it. Then you took my hand and said when I first saw you I knew immediately. Knew what I asked? That you were the one you said. I was still bitter and guarded from the last one, afraid to truly commit, but you waited patiently. You said you did so because you believe that the search for true love was over for both of us.

I looked at you and asked what are you trying to tell me that I can protect my heart from being hurt again? No, you said with a smile when I’m ready to commit my heart to you I won’t have to.

You used to be right there next to me

You used to be right there next to me.

We would get in the car on a summer day, top down and drive to nowhere, no destination in mind. At each red light I would glance over at you and you would always be smiling back at me. You had a way of tilting your head ever so slightly to the right when you smiled at me. I doubt you even realized you were doing it. But I noticed that you only did it when you smiled at me no one else and that’s how I knew it was a smile meant only for me, no one else

You used to be right there next to me.

Down the street we would walk, no destination in mind. Happy as could be your hand in mine. We laughed at each other’s corny jokes and talked for what seemed like hours. Every chance I got I glanced at you and were captured by your eyes. Your eyes, they always had a way of lighting up when you looked at me. I would laugh and tell you that you weren’t playing fair and you would always say you didn’t know what I was talking about. Maybe you didn’t, maybe that’s because your eyes only lit up when you looked at me and that’s how I knew it was a look meant for me, no one else.

Now you’re not there next to me anymore.

The smile and the look meant for me, no one else is gone. I wonder if they belong to someone else. I wonder if you even know that you’re giving him a smile and a look that tells him you love him and no else.

You used to be right there next to me.

Never Having To Ask

You know what I love about us? It’s never having to ask if you love me.  Now that’s true love.  With others I had to ask and while they would say of course I do. Did they really? Maybe they thought they did, but it wasn’t true love. It wasn’t that love you search your whole life for and you’re lucky if you find it.

With you I never had to ask if you would be there always. With others I had to. You know why?  Because I couldn’t really be sure.  And when a little rain fell you know what?  They weren’t.

I know what we have without having to ask because every minute of every day your actions make it crystal clear, tomorrow and every tomorrow after that rain or shine, good or bad when I wake your face will be the first one I see.

What about those who have to ask? I would say they shouldn’t.  They should simply enjoy the moment. But they should also understand that the person they’re with at that moment is only that, a person they’re with at that moment, nothing more nothing less. But that’s cool, everyone can’t have what we have.  True love is not meant to be found in every relationship, but every relationship can bring happiness. I Just hope they treat each relationship in their heart and in their mind accordingly and at the end of the day they’ll be alright   Who knows maybe they’ll get lucky enough to find what we have. 

never ask

Conversation With My Heart

You do know that the road back is always longer.

I know what you’re thinking.

That I’ve been hurt one time to many.

I know you have questions

Why risk it again?
Why believe in love again?

I know you wonder

Do I have anything left of myself to give or is it that I’m just too afraid to give again.

I know the fear is real

I don’t want to be hurt again.
I don’t want to lose it all again.

I know every one of those questions and concerns are valid, but unfortunately in love it’s never easy and the road back is always longer. But if you still believe in love, and love is the most powerful emotion in the universe, no matter how long the road is you’re going to have travel it again.

Now I’ve got just one question for you. Since I am pretty sure that you already know behind that wall you’re hiding how you feel about them, is it worth traveling down that road and putting yourself on the line one more time?Picture1
