 Love is real In everything that we breathe in Every soft touch of a fragile baby's hand, The caressing coolness of the breeze on your cheeks Mom's gentle pat on your shoulders. Love is you What you bring in to this world Your laughter, the memories you create The small things you do to make someone smile. Love is a fairytale When you have a happy ending, If it's...

My Mind’s On You Tonight By Elizabeth E. Castillo   As I lay down my bed at night, I can’t help but remember your sweet laughter echoing in the vast darkness of my longing for you. I can’t wait for the day I’d finally rest on my eyes on you And see your soul staring at me. Can’t  wait to touch your warm hands enveloping mine,   Out of the blue, I get...

A lonely shadow can be traced on mycountenance,Unanswered questions hang inside myhead,Where can I find my knight? He’snowhere in sight…By the window pane, the moon gleams ona cloudy night,...
