A POEM

couples_love_tumblr_kissing_hugging+(39)I do my thing and you do your thing

I do my thing, and you do your thing.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations

And you are not in this world to live up to mine.

You are you and I am I, if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.

If not, it can’t be helped.

Frederick S. Perls

I love this song….  Happy Valentines and LOVE to you all!  I’m sorry about the cheesy video but this song, this song!  I love the horns and I love the lyrics… Enjoy!

 

 

 

We are in love

I know you so well
I can tell by the sound of your voice
If you’re really in love with me
And you are
You are
You know I can’t lie
If I say to you ‘baby, I love you’
Then baby, I love you
And I do
I do
I do could it be that’s the
Phrase you thought never would phase you
Well baby, you better hold on tight
‘Cause I’m the one who’s supposed to
Kneel down and propose, well alright
I might, I might
So, when I kiss you good-night
Just sleep tight with the thought that you’ll
Always be caught up in love with me
And you’ll dream that the stars up above
Have the answer of whether we’ll be
Or whether we won’t be
In love
Well, we are
We are

That’s the fresh perspective…

VALENTINE’S DAY

Did it also sneak up out of nowhere and tap you on the shoulder?  Don’t worry, I’ve got a few last minute DIY gifts/decor to keep you covered.  So here are some last minute ideas that are easy as pie to surprise the one and only, or many loved friends in your life.

Valentine's Day should be about spending the time together.  So why not grab your paints and an old frame, and test out your artistic skills.  I would say that's time well spent.

This is one of my favorite love songs.  Gearing up to Valentine’s makes me think of love and my wedding.  This was the song that Ogo and I had our first dance to.  Many thanks to him for making it happen!  The lyrics are all I ever want him to know.  Enjoy!  That’s the fresh perspective…

“Turn Your Lights Down Low”
(feat. Bob Marley)

Turn your lights down low
And pull your window curtain
Oh let the moon come shining in
Into our life again
Saying ooh, it’s been a long, long time
I got this message for you girl
But it seems I was never on time
Did I wanna get through to you girl?
On time, on time
I want to give you some love
I want to give you some good, good loving
Oh I, oh I, oh I
Yeah I want to give you some good, good lovingTurn your lights down low
Never ever try to resist, oh no
Let your love come shining in
Into our lives again
And ooh, I love you
And I want you to know right now
Ooh I love you
And I want you to know right now
That I, that I
I wanna give you some love
I wanna give you some good, good loving
Oh I, oh I, oh I
I wanna give you some good, good lovingLoving you is a like a song I replay
Every three minutes and thirty seconds of every day
And every chorus was written for us to recite
Every beautiful melody of devotion every night
It’s potion like this ocean that might carry me
In a wave of emotion to ask you to marry me
And every word, every second, and every third
Expresses the happiness more clearly than ever heard
And when I play them, every chord is a poem
Telling the Lord how grateful I am cause I know him
The harmonies possess a sensation similar to your caress
If you asking then I’m telling you it’s yes
Stand in love, take my hand in love, God blessI want to give you some good, good loving
I want to give you some love
I want to give you some good, good loving
Oh I, oh I, oh I
I wanna give you some good, good loving

Music & Lyrics

Sade ~ The Sweetest Taboo

If I tell you
If I tell you now
Will you keep on
Will you keep on loving me
If I tell you
If I tell you how I feel
Will you keep bringing out the best in me

You give me, you give me the sweetest taboo
You give me, you’re giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

There’s a quiet storm
and it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
that is you
There’s a quiet storm
and it never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)

You give me the sweetest taboo
That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
You give me the sweetest taboo
too good for me
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)

I’d do anything for you, I’d stand out in the rain
Anything you want me to do, don’t let it slip away
There’s a quiet storm
and it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
I think it’s you
There’s a quiet storm
and i never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo

You give me the (you give me the) sweetest taboo
That’s why i’m in love with you (with you)
You give me, keep giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes i think you’re just too good for me
Every day is christmas, and every night is new year’s eve
Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me

LOVE

Can I just say that Lauryn Hill and I broke up a few months back (we had a terrible fight, ask me about it if you really wanna know…) and since then I’ve been thinking…

Anyone that knows me knows that I love LOVE.  I like everything about it and I especially love songs about love.  The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill might be one of the best love albums of my life.  I know that’s a heavy statement but, it’s true.  Her voice, the lyrics, I’m touched.

I’ve been listening to her since we got back together and would like to share one of my faves off that album.  To all of you lovers out there, carry on.  To those of you still searching, this one’s for you.  That’s all, that’s the fresh perspective…

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”

You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off of you.
You’d be like heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived.
And I thank God I’m alive.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off of you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There’s nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak.
But if you feel like I feel.
Please let me know that it’s real.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off of you.

I need you baby, and if it’s quite all right,
I need you baby to warm a lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say: OK
Oh pretty baby, don’t let me down
I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you, stay.
And let me love you, oh baby let me love you, oh baby….

You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off of you.
You’d be like heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived.
And I thank God I’m alive.
You’re just too good to be true.
Can’t take my eyes off of you.

I need you baby, and if it’s quite all right,
I need you baby to warm a lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say: It’s OK
Oh pretty baby, don’t let me down
I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you, stay.
And let me love you, oh baby let me love you, oh baby….

I need you baby, and if it’s quite all right,
I need you baby to warm a lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say: OK
Oh pretty baby, don’t let me down
I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you, stay.
And let me love you, oh baby let me love you, oh baby….

Recipe for Love

Great family weekend and there was literally LOVE all around.  Went to Yoga for the first time yesterday, and at the end she read a poem about love. If you didn’t know, it’s one of my favorite topics.  I also love this song and it’s from me to you. Today.

Recipe for Love

Harry Connick Jr.

A little bit of me and a whole lot of you
Add a dash of starlight and a dozen roses, too
Then let it rise for a hundred years or two
And that’s the recipe for making love

It doesn’t need sugar ’cause it’s already sweet
It doesn’t need an oven ’cause it’s got a lot of heat
Just add a dash of kisses to make it all complete
And that’s the recipe for making love

And if you’ve made it right you’ll know it
It’s not like anything you’ve made before
And if you’ve made it wrong you’ll know it
‘Cause it won’t keep you coming back for more

I didn’t get it from my grandma’s book upon the shelf
I didn’t get it from a magical and culinary elf
No, a little birdie told me you can’t make it by yourself
And that’s the recipe for making love

 

Peace

Monday morning prose….

Life

© Elizabeth McCrorie
We were put on this planet
To live and to love.
To cherish the ones in our lives.
And never let them get hurt…….
Safety is a priority
But danger is an outcome.
Why is it, that we work so very hard?
For something that will still happen
in the end……..
Should we care about our lives,
Or sit and waste it away.
“It doesn’t matter, were all going to
die someday!”
These words fill our heads
With sad confusion. There’s no end
We get lost with the love
We want to have.
There is no conclusion to all
this pain.
But an answer that comes
Just the same.
The negative side seems to win,
But the positive side seems to
Glow.
We are who we choose to be,
So be careful who you choose.
Love everyday like there is no
Tomorrow….
And give to others the joy of life
So no one will hurt.
Love, And love will love you back.
Open your arms to life
And life will hug you back!
Don’t be scared!
Life is still a one time thing!
