Jumble of Mixed Emotions

Updated on March 21, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

When I want to fly,

it’s love that gives me wings.

When I want to sing,

it’s the tunes close to my heart,

that make me want to dance,

to express so much that I feel.

When I want to laugh,

it’s you and love -

that make me feel so grand.

You take my hand

and I feel like Alice –

in my own wonderland.

When I want to soar,

over the tree tops,

it’s all the good emotions,

that come together

and make me feel tall.

All you had to do,

was to call,

quickly like flying with wings –

you’d see I was by your side.

When I want to smile,

all I have to do is look at nature,

at all the beauty everywhere.

Knowing that day by day,

hand in hand,

down country roads we’d stroll –

just you and i and our hearts full of love.

When I want to live,

give me an ordinary day,

add some sunshine

and sprinkle in happiness.

leading my own parade –

singing love songs just for you.

Any day can be extraordinary,

when I want to float,

to the clouds above

and fly with the birds up high.

So many sparkling memories,

that follow me through my days.

My emotions all a jumble,

causing my heart to tumble,

all because –

I once knew love.....

        I particularly love the ending. Someone who truly loves a person would never want them to suffer after they have left. That’s the thing that must be remembered.
