lucky

Lady Bug

I remember in the beginnig

we were just "going with the flow"

you planned a roadtrip

and kept the destination a secret 

 

I remeber feeling elated, excited, alive 

you pulled over next to a sunflower field

and I found myself, heart racing,

pushing through tall grass, 

jumping a barbed wire fence

and returning with my prize

 

I remember that beautiful little town

how the next day,

you took me to the bird sanctuary 

how I sat there admiring these creatures 

how I envied their wings

 

I remember when all those ladybugs

dotted your car 

How I felt like a child

waiting for each one to fly away

 

And later, finding a little lost lady

inside with us

how I wanted her to stay 

how we cracked the window

and set her free instead 

I remember wishing upon her beauty

 

and the next day at breakfast,

how I shrieked when a giant locust

crashed into my face 

except it wasn't a locust

you reached over to reveal another

little dot lady and I squealed with delight 

 

her little legs tickled my hand

at the tip of my pinkie she spread her

little wings and fluttered away

I remember we looked up her meaning

lady of luck, messenger of blessings to come

how I felt it could not have been

more perfect with you 

 

And then the drive home,

Spotting yet another little lady 

trapped inside your car

how we were already driving too fast

how she held on to the window's edge

how I urged her to fly

 

You suddenly pulled over

and I remember thinking it was

the sweetest thing of you to do 

I remember telling the little lady she could fly

how I whispered goodbye when she did 

how my heart surged with gratitude

while my eyes got warm and salty

how you pulled me to you

and how that kiss tasted like flying

I felt like the luckiest lady in the world

 

you called me your Lady Bug

I'll never forget it

*This Could Be*

This could be the dream come true

If you'd let me into your heart

A passion you never knew

No matter how tough

Just let me take care of you 

Trust me from you my love I'll never part

I'll stick by your side no matter how rough

You are by far my one true other half

You have been from the very start

 

I'll hold your hand

Through thick and thin

Right next to you is where I stand

I'm forever your woman

Who'll cherish you forever

Because you are truely my man

Lets stick together

From here to the moon my soul

Never start over 

Making you happy....Forever taking care of you

Will forever be my goal

I'll pick you up when you are down

Praying your heart no one has stole

I promise to make you smile

Whenever you wear a frown

My love in your heart I promise to stay for a long while

 

From the skies above

And all though out town

People will see what is true love

When they see us side by side

Hand in hand

God sent the angels to give us a message

That sticking through it together is in demand

That my nana believes we are soulmates

We are truely meant to be together and grow old

To never go to bed with hate

To kiss and have love in our hearts

You finding me was truely fate

This is what I've been told 

It has been written in the stars

I'll hold onto that message forever and always

To you I forever tightly will hold

And love you more and more each passing day

 

I will cherish and protect

Give you my shoulder for when you cry

Wipe away your tears

Our love I will never let it die

I will help you get through your fears

To you I promise never to lie

Honesty is all I ask for now in return

Have our dreams soar high

Promise to my heart you won't burn

Sweetheart I do ask

Please to me don't ever say good-bye

And from our past mistakes let us from it learn

To never repeat them again

Always remember there's no "could of been"

 

Keeping your heart my home

I know won't be an easy task

But I swear on my life I will always try

Please don't ever kick me out 

For that is my home

As for my heart is yours

Don't let this love pass us by 

Promise to eachother to not make it feel like an everyday chore

Lets be together untill we die

Even after we are angels

Flying freely in the sky

For I will forever stand by my man

Sweetheart you are my special Valentine

If anyone trys to take you away 

Shit will definitely hit the fan 

And it will be that persons worst day

I believe you will forever be mine

I want with you to take care 

To pick you up when your feeling blue

When you have cloudy days I will make them brightly shine

And make you feel brand new 

 

Everyday new experiences with you I want to share

Experience new excitement and make new memories

Every night lay on your chest

Your heart beat I want to hear

In your arms forever rest

Knowing for you I'll always care

Knowing that you know I think you're the best

This could be 

I know I'm almost there

I'll wait forever untill you see

When you look in my eyes and stare

I'm here to help you let go of your doubt

No one else will understand you like me 

No one else will show how much they care

Or treat you like your suppose to be 

To show you true love they don't dare

They do not see how great you are 

In your own true way

Unlike with them you don't have to put on a pretend show

With me you can be and act the way you want

Because honey your my luckiest star

You're the cutest there's no need to flaunt

This I hope you know

 

I will help make you see that everyday

That you are perfect as can be 

I love you everytime is what I'll always say

This I hope you can really see

While you soundly sleep

I'll keep watch so you can peacefully rest

And in your dreams forever play

I'll protect your soul

I'll protect you in each and every way

This will be my lasting goal

Know this honey this is my test

To show you my love

I Will show my very best

Each and everyday

To you a new way I will show you how

Our connection will never end soon

We are finally as one 

I will forever love you from here to the moon
