~If You But Knew~


If you but knew
How all my days seemed filled with dreams of you

How sometimes in the silent night
Your eyes thrill through me with their tender
light,

How you, 'mid other forms I seek-
Oh, love more real than though such dreams were
true If you but knew.

Could you but guess
How you alone make all my happiness,

How I am more willing for your sake
To stand alone, give all and nothing take,

Nor chafe to think me bound while you are free
Quite free , till death, to love you silently,

Could you but guess.
Could you but learn

How when you doubt my truth I sadly yearn
To tell you all, to stand for one brief space
Unfettered, soul to soul, as face to face,

To crown you queen, My queen, till life shall
end, My lover and likewise my truest friend,
Would you love me, dearest, as fondly in return,

Could you but learn?

~Connecting~


When you think about
the purest love

Besides that which comes
from up above

As your mind goes inside
to search for love

And you think of connecting
like hand in glove

You'll remember the things
you value so much

Like the sound of a voice
or a scent or a touch

As you feel a strong tug
on the strings of your heart

tying you two together
never to part

You can feel your growing bond
take on a warm glow

That incredible connection
between does flow

Then your mind closes off
to anyone else

To the point where you feel
like time itself melts

And you think ahead to a time
on some distant day

When you look back at now and
still feel the same way

And the more you think of it the more
you let your love abound

All you anticipated and wanted
you have finally found

Come now with me and open
your heart, your mind

And see yourself falling freely
to me as you find

All that you've dreamed of and
all that you need

Your heart carried home
on a thundering steed

~How Do I Love Thee?~


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I
love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my
lost saints, - I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life! - and, if God
choose, I shall but love thee better after death.


~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~







~From Xaipe~


I carry your heart with me
(I carry it in my heart)

I am never without it
(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is
done by only me is your doing, my darling)

I fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)

I want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you here
is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the
bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;

which grows higher than soul can hope
or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart
(I carry it in my heart)


~By e.e. cummings~





Don't walk behind me;
I may not lead.

Don't walk in front of me;
I may not follow.

Walk beside me that we may be as one.

~ A Ute Indian Proverb~
