    Each Heart Beat Has It's Own Time

    I used to say day by day, then it was breath by breath. Now I know each heart beat has it's own time. Cherish every second for what it is and don't worry about what tomorrow holds. ~ easier said than done of course ~

    You walk in my door, we quickly move past our pretenses and time could stand still.  Cause the next few hours its you and I, with these heightened senses and our lustful will. In these first few these moments I fantasize about what’s to ... ***, your taste... your touch...

    Lives Little Moments

    As the heart beats there is a complacency, We live a lifetime of moments. some good, some bad, some indifferent. Some we remember and some we forget. Some are placed within our heart to remain there always. Some are discarded too readily as ones we want to forget, but every...

    All We Have

    All we have is now.  Yesterday is past, is only a memory.  Tomorrow is a dream that has not yet arrived. All we have is now.

    I Live In the Moment

    To me the past is over and there is no going back, I can’t live there. I may have learned something but it’s gone like a dream.   The future hasn’t happened yet and is a complete unknown. It’s not real until it can be realized.   There is...

    As Time Passes By

    It's hard to assume then dreams become inadequate to make it real. Hence, cherish the moment and live in it until it becomes a lasting memory which can make you smile in the future as an enduring remembrance of the hours passed and days that were gone.
