Open


I left the door wide open for you
Why don’t you come in?
Don’t be a stranger
It’s safe to come in
I’ve been waiting for you

Where have you been?
That’s not important, as long as I have you near
Sit back, get comfortable
You don’t have to go
Anywhere we are is paradise

You’ve got me open twenty-four seven
So I hope that you’ll stay right where you are
Your company completes me
It’s so easy to see
I’m wide open because I gave you the key

NOTE:
No this isn’t about anybody specific. I am simply sitting, looking at the door & writing what came to mind.

Made Up


Your name on my lips.
Your hand on my hips.
Your head rested on my weary shoulders.
I can’t question this.
Feeling closer than I’ve ever been to anyone that I’ve let in.

So tell me something that I don’t know.
As if you didn’t know that I was sure.
Give me a moment that I won’t forget.
Tell me that I am yours.
And I am yours.

My hand in your hair.
My eyes holding yours.
My body’s so near to yours.
I can’t believe this.
But you mean the world to me & I can’t deny.

What you say matters to me.
I try to control these feelings.
But I can’t win, this time I just can’t win.
And I don’t want to.
My mind is made up now & my heart already was.

So tell me something that you already knew.
A choice you’ve made & decided to follow through.
Show me a dream that you don’t regret.
Tell me that I am a part of it.
And I will be.
Yes, I will be.

NOTE:
I wrote this in 20 minutes because of this melody that was in my head. I guess the “Bourne Ultimatum” will have to wait for another night! Oh well.

Love Shows/Love Languages


Words of Affirmation
Quality Time
Receiving Gifts
Acts of Service
Physical Touch

What is your language?
What makes you feel loved?

I need to touch & be touched from time to time. A hug, high five, leaning against each other; something.

I also need quality time, you know that one on one time for a while, and then I’m good.
The activity isn’t really as important as the company is. I’m more interested in being with you & knowing that you enjoy being with me.

I get that it’s not that easy for other people to open up or to adapt to the ways that I show & accept love, but it is necessary. I don’t want to control how we communicate, I just want to understand it.

Communication is the key to discovering who we are & what we will become. Communication is multi-layered. Discovering how & what I am communicating to other people & how they need to be treated & loved in return has been rather enlightening.

Why do I sound like a Counsellor all of a sudden?
*Shrugs*

Take care my friends.

Quotes: The Heart of Appreciation


“Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.”- Seneca

“Celebrate what you want to see more of.” – Tom Peters

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia

“When you give appreciation IN ORDER TO get something– it’s manipulation and people can sense it. Appreciate genuinely.” ― Marilyn Suttle

“It’s funny, but have you ever noticed that the more special something is, the more people seem to take it for granted? It’s like they think it won’t ever change. Just like this house here. All it ever needed was a little attention, and it would never have ended up like this in the first place.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

“Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years, but of moments. You must experience each one before you can appreciate it.” ― Sarah Breathnach
