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?

This Love is Taking Over Me

This Love is Taking Over Me

I’ve been sitting here all alone
Just thinking about you coming home
It’s only been a few hours since we’ve touched
But baby my heart is missing you so much

It’s hard to concentrate with my time
I can’t get you off my mind
I’m thinking about what you said when you were leaving
You admitted being in love and there was no questioning

It shocked me because I was thinking the same thing
I’m ready for you to move in; I want to give you a ring
Although you have your home and I have mine
You’re always over here all the time

We’re like a married couple with the way that we act
I always look forward to you coming back
Your clothes are here and it’s like you’ve moved in
You’ll be back tonight and I can’t wait until then

This love is taking over me
Is this real or is this a dream?
Our emotions come so intensely
I want you right here, next to me

When we’re together I feel so free
But when we’re apart it’s hard to sleep
The feelings are mutual I do understand

I’m going to do my best to be a good man

My Love Dream

My Love Dream

I dream and imagine
That I’ll find ‘’The One’’ someday
When I find you,
What will I say?

I’m looking for the full package
Can I want what I give?
Is it wrong to want beauty inside and out?
I want to enjoy my soul mate as we live

Will you be easy to talk to?
Can I let my guards down?
My heart is what you’ll see through
I have nothing to hide

Will I have to sacrifice what I want?
No one’s perfect, we all have faults
Will you hold my attention?
Or will I be lost in my own thoughts?

These are some questions that enter my mind
As I think about my future valentine
I look forward to seeing the unseen

As I explore My Love Dream

A Love Holiday

 A Love Holiday

You have me singing all day long
I’m listening to nothing but love songs
Today is the day that my walls fell
I have drank water from love’s well

What have you done to me?
I can’t eat and I can’t sleep
I want you close, I want you near
Let’s be together and bring in a new year

You were the first to say you’re in love
I couldn’t speak, the cat had my tongue
When I couldn’t respond, I felt so bad
Did I push you away or make you mad?

I was finally able to speak
I’m glad that you listened
I’m strong but your love made me weak
When I said this, we started kissing

I’m glad that we are sharing our love
We’ve made an explosion
There is nothing that’s standing in our way

We have declared today a love holiday
