100 Year Storm

100 Year Storm
Dedicated to Larry (My late husband)

Winds twirling to the east
A hot and wonderful cocktail
Thunder rolling toward me
I remember every detail

Lightening snapping behind us
Turbulence from the stormy sea
A summer tempest coming furiously
Somehow we could both foresee

Looking down the stairs at you
We’d opened up the floodgate
I warned you, “Don’t you fall in love.”
You knew it was too late.

Your ‘bad-boy’ grin was just an act
Your kindness reached my core
Our differences played harmony
First friends, eventually more

Sun baked our skin to red
Sandy feet
Burned barefoot trails
Starry nights cooled our dreams
I remember every detail

Some of us
We have the luck
For birth signs to align
To find ourselves
To be born
Right in the path
Of a hundred year storm
If it happens to you
Just let it exist
That thunderous love
You just can’t resist

That August day looking down at you
Your ‘bad-boy’ grin showed me my fate
I warned you, “Don’t you fall in love.”
We both knew it was too late.

And I.... I remember every detail.

5. 1+1(1) Love.......💜

I feel Love's Light, touching; softly upon my flesh
It gives My Soul warmth; My Heart, My Mind, My Body feels refreshed

For I've found the (One); who's Love is so True
That the Glow, You see; is the Refection of Our Love, and it turns Our Skies Blue

Now together (We) walk as (One); along Life's difficult path
As We lean on Our Love; We brush away Life's sorrows, as We pass

And as (Our Love) grows on; (Our Family) is Born
Another Petal of (Our Flower); that will shadow Life's thorns

Now Together as One; We will share Our Loves' Light
With Hope, it brings comfort; to the darkest of nights

For this is the path; We've Chosen to Walk
Everlasting Our Love (IS!!!); it's more than just talk

So if You are wandering and wondering; how to find the (One) True Love for You
Then come closer My Friend; I'll share My (One) Secret with You

Know (This!);

The Answer You seek, is simple; it's an equation that's being hidden from You
For the answer to 1+1=(1)💜; now, start by seeking (Your Truth!)

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

(~÷)
Tony!)
