Mom's Special Diary: One in a million!

Sometimes while surfing the internet you run across some of the most wonderful articles. The following is a link by another blogger named Jac, who's mom passed away. Obviously, she misses her mom as I miss mine. I invite all readers of  'Poems from the Heart' to stop by Jac's blog and read a special article about her mom.

Mom's Special Diary: One in a million!

Valentines Poem for the 'One I Love'

Today is a day with so much meaning for two people. It allows us to display our emotions to each other. It's time to take time out from your daily routine, and put into perspective what truly is important in your life. Many people seem to live around their job, but will it still be there if you get sick. Most likely not. Some people work so that they can own and drive a beautiful sports car. Will it still be there if you get hurt and cannot drive it anymore. Most likely not. It seems that people live from day to day just thinking of themselves and don't think of others. But there comes a time in everyone's life that the usual routine will come to a grinding halt, and what will you have to show for it.
One thing is for sure. You may loose your house, or your car or your job, but the one thing that will always be by your side is your spouse, your partner in life. Your partner will be with you through 'thick or thin' and hopefully 'until death do us part'.

So just take time out today, and think of that other person, your 'better half' who makes you a better person.

One I Love

When it comes to Valentines,
we make the perfect pair---
There's romance, love, and laughter
in the friendship that we share.

We care enough to listen,
to trust and understand,
To build a life together,
side by side and hand in hand...

We both know that we're lucky
and we've got a good thing going,
Through ups and downs
and give and take,
our love just keeps on growing...

'Cause I bring out the best in you,
and you the best in me ---
I guess it takes the two of us
to make a perfect "we."

Valentines Day - A Special Day for Two People

Today is a Special Day! Valentines Day used to be a day of regret for me not too many years ago. Separated and heading towards a divorce, I wondered if there would be another person to enter my life. I prayed that I not live the rest of my life alone.
One day, my prayers were answered. On the other side of the world, lived a woman in the Philippines who also felt alone. Somehow, Divine Intervention took its course as I met the most wonderful person to ever enter my life. Her name is Virginia. Happily married for almost 5 years now, I know that I've been blessed, and to this day I never had an ounce of regret to have married her. Every day seems to be just one blessing after another. I am not alone. Virginia and I share our lives together in the face of God.
Today represents love and joy that is shared between two people, called Valentines Day. It seems more special now to me than a Birthday. It doesn't reflect my age, but allows me to show my affection to the most special person in my life - Virginia.
Later today, I plan to share another poem that reflects this special day!!

My First, My Last , My Valentine...

The following is a romantic Valentines Day Poem. It was originally published at the following URL - Poems like these validate my belief that poems can communicate a thought much better than any other form of communication. Regular stories are usually dated, but poems  are never dated, and do not expire. They last longer than the author, and the readers who read them. Still, once read again, they appear as if they could have been written the day before. That's because  the poem may portray an event about someone from the past, present or future. Regardless of whenever they are written, they most never are about yesterdays news, even if written 100 years ago.

I've never imagined that there can be this day.
A day that love will find its way.
Out of my heart and into your soul.
These feelings I have are beyond my control.

All my life I have waited patiently.
For a goddess like you, so beautiful, so lovely.
Words can't express the way I feel.
These feelings towards you are all for real.

You are the reason why I go on.
Eternity can't separate this special bond.
This heart of mine is reserved for you.
Forever it is yours, this love is true.

I'll be your first and you'll be my last.
My world, my everything, till my time has past.
I will always love you until the end of time.

Tejan - A Filipina Living in Gothenburg Sweden

Tejan and Husband
In the past, I wrote a few special articles about whom I consider special people. Finally, there is yet another woman who has a wonderful blog whom I consider one of those very special people. I know of her only through blogging. Her name is TeJan from Gothenburg Sweden. She is a loving Filipina mother of two children who relocated to the mainland of Sweden just five years ago with her husband. Just as I remember the first time I had those 'kilig' moments when I met my wife Virginia, Tejan mentions her experience with her husband and how difficult it was at first to express her feelings towards him. Obviously by reading her blog, she loves her husband and their two children very much, and I just wanted to take a moment here to acknowledge her for being the special person she
Tejan and her beautiful children
has to be.

She has recently written an article on her blog called 'Insights' that included a poem to her husband that was written by a famous poet named Joanna Fuchs and as everyone who reads 'Poems from the Heart', knows I have a very soft heart when it comes to expressions shown by people in that specal way called a poem. Of course, I've written a few poems about my spouse Virginia, who undoubtedly is the 'light of my life'.
I invite all the readers of this blog to stop by Tejan's blog and read the poem called You Just Keep On Loving Me.

That Someone Special - written by Richard Netherland Cook

One of the special writers that has been inspirational with my interest in writing poems is Richard Netherland Cook. He has that special touch, one that not only must touch the heart of his wife, but reaches out to others to show the softness in the words of a very appearent strong man. I've read EVERY poem that I can find written by this man, and I must say that his poems give special meaning to just about every kind of poem imaginable. His poems are caring and sincere, truthful and such a variety, that should touch the hearts of every type of personality on the face of this earth.
Immediately below is a poem that has been dedicated to his wife of 47 years. I highly doubt if I will ever reach that milestone in marriage, but for whatever days I have left in this world, I want my spouse to know that every day because of her, is another special day that I've been blessed by God to have sharing my life with her. I cannot find a more special way to outwardly show my love to her, except in meaningful words in the form of a poem.

That Someone Special

She is the apple of my eye,
The reason that I live.
She is all that I could wish for.
My heart to her I give.

It is for that someone special,
These words that I do pen,
To thank her for always being,
My wife and my best friend.

She has the will to live until,
The last breath she does take,
There is the love within her heart,
Such good memories to make.

She is the sunshine in my morning,
The star that's in my sky,
And if I should ever lose her,
Then I would surely die.

She stands always at my side,
No matter what comes our way.
She comforts me with steadfast love,
Each and every day.

She carries many burdens,
And her heart is sometimes broken,
By all the thanks she never gets,
And all the words unspoken

I know her life is not her own,
I always seem so needy,
And asking her to do one more thing,
I feel so really greedy.

How can I ever thank her,
For all she has done for me?
I can only give her all my heart,
And love her to eternity.

I hope that when the end comes,
And she meets God face to face,
He will tell her that in Heaven,
She has a special place.

A Waiting Heart

Today is one of those gloomy days, one that is kind of out of the normal for me. Living in Texas, I've become used to the warm weather and the busy city. But today, I sit at home enjoying a day off from work, trying to stay warm for the very cold conditions that have visited the Dallas, Texas area.
My wife is hard at work, not on her job, but studying assignments and preparing to go back to school tomorrow. I need to leave her alone with her studies. But where ever she goes or whatever she does, I'm usually thinking of her.

Here are a few words thrown together while we just sit a room apart, while she is studying hard in her studies and I'm here trying to stay warm with thoughts on a very cold, chilling Dallas Texas day wasting time on my computer. I hope that it makes sense, and that whoever reads this, will like it.

(Poems from the Heart)

I carry your heart with me, my dear
Always cherishing the putters that are so clear

Everything you do and everywhere you go

My heart beats with anticipation
With feelings of adoration

 I've asked the question before
Why I'm in love I must explore

I cherish my feelings without a doubt
For a woman who is so devout
Someone whom I can never do without

Of course this person is my wife
Who is trying to better her life

In her studies she is so sincere
At this moment, I must not interfere

The pounding of my heart will subside
My love for her will never be denied
