Julie London - Bye Bye Blackbird

I imagine me dancing slowly with you in a smoky little bar in a foreign land to this tune.. You slip your arms about me tenderly. And I am hoping every emotion isn't showing on my face. For so often it does.

You are dressed in a black pin stripped suit. With wonderfully made shoes from Italy, that fit your feet so well. I have on a red dress. My hair is put up in an updo..With a silver comb in a French twist.

You run your thumbs down my cheeks and lift my face to meet yours..And you kiss me slowly.

There are no worries about money or how we are going to get this or that. We just are pleasantly in love and peaceful.

And you say, "Love isn't about leaving it is about weathering each and every storm with each other. It is me and you holding hands while we walk down the sidewalk. It is picking up little presents for each other. Like I know you love cherry chocolates that is why I bring you one everyday. It is you always having tea made for me because I love it. It isn't always rainbows and butterflies..But it is the feeling that it could be."

And I look up at you and smile. The smile I reserve for those I truly love..

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

So why not make one?

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
