DEBORAH BROOKS LANGFORD


A ROSE IN TIME

He gave her a rose, a rose so pretty
She held her breath as he made her feel lovely
Oh what a sight to see, as she blinked her eyes
He stood kissing her soul, can't you see~

She smiled her smile, as he kissed her hand
Darling nice to meet you, may I take you away?
Oh my dear kind sir, oh yes take me to your heart
Wherever that may be, you see dear kind sir
I rather like you and I need your love~

My lady, you are special to me,
Let me whisk you away
And make you whole;
It’s been a while since I met someone
Special and pretty as a picture.
Let’s fly together and find our
Special love
 That was a rose in time;
In their dreams they ruled the world~

Their love was special their love was true!
She followed him to the end of the earth
She dreamed of his arms and wonderful lips
She dreamed so long it maybe come true…

He kissed her and held her tight
He thought, I would never lose this fight
He smelled her hair and brushed her face
Oh, he thought, how I love this dream
He picked her up and fell headfirst
In the sweetest love in time…
Yes, it started with a rose~

I LOVE YOU SIMPLY

I saw you the other day
You smiled my way
Our eyes met and I knew you were mine;
I gave you my hand
I knew then I loved you simply…
Let me be your baby~

I Love You Simply
So simply without knowing how;
So simply and always…
 I know not when, or where you came~

I Love You Simply
Simply, I love you
Without problems or pride
I love you in this way;
I do not know any other way…
Loving you this way and always,
 Will reveal not you or I
But One


It is So…
Intimate, your hand upon my breast is my hand,
~ We Are One ~

It is So…
Intimate that when I fall asleep, my eyes close
And dream of you and you of me
So simply are you and me
~ We Are One ~
Is why I Love You Simply

Now and Forever
Let me be your baby…
Eyes closed so tight
Holding you with each breath
Still, in tiny slumber
Holding each loving memories
Of Te Amo

 ~ I Love You Simply ~

CLOSING HER EYES

Looking deep in the calm of water,
Searching and searching for something…
A gentle breeze blows on her face
Her eyes are closed...she feels its offer~

The sun, hidden by the clouds, hides the lines in her face
Her sadness shows suffering…
Rising to her feet and looking around, the day humming around her
She takes in her own torture~

She closes her eyes to hear her own sound…
All she hears is crying and sadness;
Pain and hurt is circling her
Bestowing a beauty that is covering her~

She kneels before a boulder,
Praying for answers upon her altar…
She lies upon her rock
Up close, and arms wrapped
In all her burdens~

Closing her eyes once more,
She imagines a man made just for her…
Arriving on a chariot of gold,
Stopping in front
With longing, on a bended knee~

Closing her eyes for the last time
She lies down on her rock of life
To be raised on his bended knee,
Up from darkness is she~

The Lord picked her up
Placed her in his arms
Saying you will always be
My child; You see I am the King!
