I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.
Life doesn’t always,
give us what we desire,
but it can give us -
the wonders this world holds.
We may have a rough road ahead,
but if we think of the good things,
this life can offer,
like friends and family,
our hearts will know -
how truly beautiful life can be.
No matter what else it brings us,
somewhere round the bend,
it just might be what you’ve always -
been searching for.
So the important thing to do,
is to live it with joy -
each and every day.
Love comes with no promises,
when it is in first bloom.
Love can be hard to find
and should be treasured when it comes your way.
Love is like a rocky sea,
just as wonderful as a sunny day.
There is no joy felt more,
than the feel of a kiss -
that comes when love is real.
So live it, love it, rock it -
enjoy love coming your way.
Embrace it and never let it go,
there’s nothing that can bring me more joy -
than listening to old rock tunes.
They always bring back,
the joys of teen time,
sending me on far way journeys -
with sparkling memories.
It’s quite a chemical combination,
full moons, sparkling stars and old rock tunes –
so live it, love it, rock it now.

Live it, love it, rock it indeed! Music is nostalgic. It brings back memories of first loves, first kisses and first heart breaks. Every lyric, every beat, holds a memory and I wouldn't have it any other way, Rasma.
