Cling To Me


You have no strength.

Everything has got you down

and in the end you can’t think of how you are going to make it round.

Do me a favor if you please

And sweet darling just cling to me

cause one day and it might be soon

I’ll be the one to cling to you.

Feels like this rain will never end

Too much pain to deal with 

But sweet darling just believe 

that in the end you can cling to me

cause one day and it might be soon

I’ll be the one to cling to you.

You may feel as if you have no hope

and you are at the end of your rope

there’s nothing else you can do to cope

But I beg you to just cling to me

cause one day and it might be soon

I’ll be the one to cling to you.

 

For those who are dealing with loss and feel there is no hope don’t give up. Hold on and know in the end what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger! Lisa this is for you!

Hero


He is our hero.
We are two sides of a coin.
You are his lover, his partner in life.
I am his sister who loves & wonders though distance is great.
He is so charming.
He loves so distinctly yet completely.
We both adore him.
Some may say love is weakness
But we know love is strength .
Love endures
Love heals
Love in every form can be a hero.
Our hero is love.
Love sustains us.
Love remains to comfort us when all else fails.

This poem was inspired by my brother Kevin, his loving wife, Lisa & of course my feelings about him.

What Love Is All About


The title of the song that I wrote for Adam was a wedding present that was played when we lit the unity candle that I wanted for our ceremony. This song is a collaboration of sorts with Paul Nimmo who at the time was in Australia while I was in Louisiana.  I asked if he could put my melody to music. He took up the challenge and you will get to hear the song. I sang the song acapella using my computer. He did the piano as well as mixing the sounds you hear. I think he did a wonderful job.

What Love Is All About by Dianna Louise Miller for Adam William Morris

 Sometimes it’s rough

But with you by my side it’s not so tough.

You’re the one I want to share

With everything and everyone I know.

Life is never easy

But sharing things with you lightens the load.

This is what love is all about

Sharing, caring, and knowing in the end there’s one constant in your life.

When two hearts become one

There’s magic and it will never come undone

As long as the two remember to share because they are one.

I cherish you for all you are.

You’re everything that I could want:

Forgiving, and giving, strong, generous, understanding, and true.

I see so much of Christ in you.

This is what love is all about

Sharing, caring, knowing in the end there’s one constant in your life.

When two hearts become one

There’s magic and it will never come undone

As long as the two remember to share because they are one.

One more thing to share with you

I thank God for all He has done for me and you

He started us on different paths

We thought we’d never met our half to make us whole

But now I know He works in such mysterious ways.

Although our beginnings are world apart

He brought us together and now we’ll journey forth in this world as one.

And this what love is all about

Sharing, caring, and knowing in the end there’s one constant in your life.

When two hearts become one

There’s magic and it will never come undone

As long as we remember to share because we are one.

It’s 11 years now since we have made our commitment to each other. It has been the best 11 years of my life. As the years go by, I think back about where we were, where we are and where we are going. I always dreamed of finding him. Believe me, we don’t have a perfect relationship but I can’t imagine my life without him in it. He gives me strength. He inspires me. He makes me a better person. I would like to think that I have that sort of influence on him. I never in a million years thought I would have someone who makes me this happy. He knows me better than I know myself. It almost feels like a modern fairy tale come true. I have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming but the reality of Adam and Dianna is very much real.

I know that I am blessed with a really wonderful partner. He spoils me rotten and I try to spoil him too. We have our moments but I do know that no matter what, he loves me and I would have to do something pretty horrible to wreck what we have. I would have to be insane to do that. I swear I was made for him.  Here’s a few photos to highlight the years we have had together.

I know that life is full of ups and downs but as my song says when two hearts become one it is magic and it will never come undone as long as the two remember to share, because they are one! I thank God for Adam and I pray that you too may get to experience the joy of love in all the magnificent forms it comes in!

The Moth


I am the moth drawn to your flame
If I should leave you I’ll never be the same.
So many questions & never an answer
Perhaps it’s that mystery which keeps me enamored.
I am the moth that’s drawn to your flame
Round & round I go do you feel the same?
Your silence is deafening
& I’m the one to blame for being the moth drawn to your flame.

My 50th blog


Adam on Cabin's BeachFor my 50th blog, I thought I would share something that I wrote for Adam after he first came to see me in 2001. It’s really funny how things happen. I like to think things happen for a reason. I am sure there are probably skeptics out there. It’s fine because I have enough faith. I always say that to Adam half jokingly. I know I could probably do something more spectacular but since it’s my 50th blog I wanted to do something special for myself and my fella.

I Was Made For You by Dianna Miller April 27, 2001

I was made for you
Every fiber of my being says it’s true.
I was made for you.
You say my name and I am moved.
With each caress and tender kiss
I know the meaning of happiness’ bliss.
Even though we are miles apart
I know you hold me in your heart
Just as you know it’s the same for me.
I know that we are meant to be.

Something So Easy, Yet So Hard


Something so easy, yet so hard

It feels as if I can see it from a far.

It tickles at the back of my mind

but to try and voice it feels unkind.

Something so easy, yet so hard

To tell you I am sorry for a wrong yet undone.

I keep looking back wondering what else to do.

Something so easy, yet so hard

ending a friendship barely begun.

Something so easy, yet so hard

Knowing it’s over yet unable to let go.

There is nothing else for me to do.

I acknowledge my fault, lack of self-control.

I wish I was far more bold.

My poetry/songs


Lots of times when I am writing poetry, they are actually lyrics.  It’s a very rare occasion when I write a poem and that is all that it is. I find myself singing when I am bored, inspired or meditating/praying. I have done this as a child keeping the tradition going as I grow older. I find I do it in spurts too. I have bits of paper or old notebooks with ideas scrawled in them.

A fellow blogger, dreamingforbetter, had reminded me of a song I had written for someone ages ago. It’s a long convoluted story which I don’t really want to share with the entire WordPress community but I wanted to share the song because it has deep meaning to me and might help others who can’t quite express themselves the way they would like to.  We all come across people who help build us up and love comes in many forms. God bless you!

 

From The Bottom Of My Soul (Love Angel) by Dianna Morris

 There’s so much I need to show you.

There’s so much to share.

Time has never been a friend of mine

So I never dare.

You have given me so much

Never asking for a thing

Except a chance to love me unconditionally.

I’m not really certain how long this will last

But I know for sure that this is better than my past.

I just want to love you.

Someone special, someone pure

And if I’m gonna lose you

I just want you to know

I will love you from the bottom of my soul.

I will hold you in my heart and I’ll never let you go.

Cause you have helped me

Like no one before.

You’ve helped me spread my wings.

I’m gonna fly to the sun.

So if you go before me,

Please watch me from above.

Give me a nudge when I hesitate

Enfold me in your wings before I wait until it’s too late.

You’ve given me a taste of paradise here on Earth.

You’ve shown me so much…you saw my self-worth.

I will love you from the bottom of my soul.

I will hold you in my heart.

I will never let you go.

A Poem as yet untitled


Think not my heart is made of stone

Or I would cut you to the bone.

The fact remains my heart belongs to another

Whom I love and never thought I would discover.

I wish I could make you both happy

Even though I know it sounds sappy.

You need someone to have and hold.

I could never be that bold

Not while I am another’s love.

You’re both so very precious to me.

I wish you only harmony.

There must be someone longing for you.

She’s out there waiting; pining it’s true

so go on and follow your dream

which will bring you ecstasy.
