Spring Sunshine by JezzieG

The years keep passing and time cannot stand still
I wonder how the warmth of your love holds me
Flowing through my body as it always will
Like spring sunshine gently warms the early bee
I think of your kiss; how it made my heart thrill
And how you chose to love me and let me see
You, my spark of life that would my heart fulfil
Your passion and desire were my destiny

And the years go by yet my heart feels the same
The eternal urge to hold you close and near
And tantra of the night breathing out your name
The very same urgent breath that stakes your claim
On my body, heart, soul; oh my precious dear
‘Tis your love took my wild soul and made it tame

Love Incomplete by JezzieG

An old song on playing remembers it all
Of falling in love, but always incomplete
As you cried your tears that I could never meet
But I would hold you until he came to call
All those weeks and months he was having a ball
As he left you behind with nothing so sweet
But I’d comfort you with no thought of retreat
As my heart had already begun to fall

In love with you; knowing you never loved me
You just wanted somewhere to cry it all out
So you let me believe our loving could be
But still in your heart you could never be free
And I knew that without a shadow of doubt
Cruel love blinded me so I could not see

Summer Dancing by JezzieG

I long for the twilight and summer dancing
The closeness of you as stars begin to shine
While we whisper caught in the sweet romancing
Like the night we first kissed and you became mine
And in our whispers, I knew I was chancing
Rejection but still I loved you as divine
Oh how I long for that, the night we first kissed
For it is the touch of your lips I have missed

For the memories I play our songs tonight
To feel you here, floating in my arms again
To dance in the garden because it feels right
As I close my eyes, a moment of respite
We danced whatever be it wind or the rain
And to the stars I whisper “You’re my delight”
