    Daydreams Of Love.

    What's that I hear ? A sweet siren song, Beckoning me, Drawing me along. Distant shores You alone await My hopes, my dreams Will you this sate? Tumultuous feelings Our passions ignite; What happens next? Together, one night. .

    Actually I am a mom of four teenagers.

    I have two boys and one girl in that category. My sons are 14 1/2 and 16. My daughters are 13 and 18. It is never a dull moment here at home. At least, two of them drive so I do not have to play taxi driver for them.
