What is the Problem?

What is the Problem?

Love, why haven’t you happened already?
Did I do something wrong?
Why do you keep sending losers my way?
Is this karma correcting the day?

Am I being punished for my past?
I didn’t mean to pass up a past chance
I wasn’t ready for love then
I needed to grow for a true commitment

Now that I’m ready
No one catches my eye
I don’t feel any sparks
Even when there’s an attractive outside

I need a certain feeling
One that’s deeper and more
I’m not going to sacrifice and settle
I don’t want to be bored

I’m trying to be patient, but this is getting hard
Something’s got to give, I need a new start
Sometimes I feel like giving up on this dream

Is true love really meant for me?

Christmas Day, Please Don’t End


I woke up feeling an urge to cheer.
I’m happy the holiday season is here.
I look forward to time with family and friends. 
Please Christmas day, please don’t end.
This is the time that we all get surprised.
As we wonder what gifts are wrapped up inside.
What’s in the presents that are under the tree?
Will it be enough to make us all happy?
I’m imagining holding a gift, right in my hand.
I’m pulling apart the ribbons, strand by strand.
My eyes open wide, as I take a peek.
This was the perfect gift for me.
My gift was a shirt that was one of a kind.
The way it felt was amazing, it blew my mind.
When I put on the shirt, it fit me so well.
It looked so expensive, even in a holiday sale.
The rest of the gifts were good too.
We had everything imagined, including shoes.
Everyone had gifts and they had big smiles.
We wished for this day to last for a while.

Will You Commit or Surrender Me?

Will You Commit or Surrender Me?

My love, I don’t know what to say or do
I’m lost in a state in which I’m confused
I get so many signals that you’re ready for commitment
But then reality brings me back to your contentment

And I see that you’re happy with the way things are
You only want your heart to go so far
I have to protect me and my interest
I can’t be in a game of pretending

I know there is a love that is mutual and it won’t rest
But at the end of the day, my questions lead to stress
And I start to wonder how much I really mean to you
Would you even fight for me if my love was possible to lose?

Would you even cry for me if I decided to leave you?
I wonder what decision you would choose
My love, my heart is being torn apart
I can’t remain in a love that has no path to start

I haven’t exactly come to my decision
I want to react with proper precision
I don’t want to let you go if real love has a chance
Some days I feel we have a true romance

I’m getting mixed signals that come straight from heart
Although your mouth says no to a long term relationship
Your actions says yes to a lifelong romantic start

So will you surrender me or will we have a true commitment?

Repairing your Family Theme


Do you have family you haven’t seen?
This is the time to change that theme.
The holidays are a perfect bridge.
You can use dinner to repair any ridge.

It’s natural for families to have their fights.
It’s also ok to heal overnight.
Thanksgiving is a path to make amends.
You can do it with family or with friends.

This is the time the air is filled with merry.
Get rid of grudges and don’t let it carry.
Will you now change your theme?

Making amends is not as hard as it seems.

Chapter 3 – The Relationship

Partial Chapter from the book, ''Love Poems: Are You The One?"


Chapter 3 – The Relationship

If you are in a relationship, how does it feel to you?  It takes work getting to a relationship for some people at least.  Relationships have their different stages.  You meet, get to know one another, date and eventually you get into the relationship.  The speed and the requirements that people have on  each other will vary from situation to situation.

There are a few things that comes to people’s mind when they think about a relationship.  Can I trust this person?  Is this going to work out?  Is this person being faithful?  Does this have long term potential?  There isn’t a way to know these things every step along the way.  Relationships have so many dynamics to them.  Some of those dynamics are compatibility with each other, personalities, level of connection and a trust factor.

In my opinion, I feel that relationships work out best when people can accept their partner as they are.  One of the biggest things that I’ve seen in relationships that don’t work is when one person tries to force change on the other person.  This leads to feelings of being taken for granted, being controlled and an imbalance in the relationship.  Either two people fit for each other or they don’t.  Don’t get me wrong, change can be good.  Especially when there are damaging habits.  However, when it starts to become a situation to where you’re trying to force someone to change, that can be a problem. 


The key to a relationship working out is good communication, learning to understand your partner and accepting the fact that no situation is going to be perfect.  And if those things are in place and your partner isn’t being a negative impact on your life, then the relationship have a lot of potential to work out.  We now introducing The Relationship.

I Miss You

I Miss You

I miss those times
When we used to be together
I wish those times
Could have lasted forever

You kissed my mind
And filled my heart with laughter
You showed no sign
That our love would have left us

I miss the times that we spent
I wish those times would come again
I can’t seem to get you out of my mind
Cause a love like you is so hard to find

I loved to see you smile
And I love the smell of your scent
You make me melt a thousand times
When I’m in your presence

You had my heart
In the palm of your hand
You’ve left your mark
Inside of my head

When I was with you
My gray sky turned blue
Now I’m missing you so bad

Can we start again and make us last?
