Diane’s Poems & Song Lyrics

I Would

Just to hear your joyous laugh
And know I’ve chased a frown
I would that I were born again
One thousand times the clown

To feel your heart is somehow touched
By my quiet simple song
I would that I’d been blessed by God
With a talent twice as strong

I would love you, forever I would love you
And give my life to you
I would ease your day, light your way
If you only knew
That I would love you

When I sense your soul is crying
From whatever gives you pain
I would I had more strength to give
And not comfort you in vain

Just to see the light around your eyes
As you gently touch my cheek
I would I had the heavens in my hand
I’d lay them at your feet.

I would always love you, forever I would love you
And give my life to you
Ease your day, light your way
If you only knew
That I would love you

Drop a pebble in a lake 

Drop a pebble in a lake 
and watch the waters part
Till the rings reach every shore around
and touch some other heart
I stand here at the water’s edge
praying for a sign
that somewhere out across the mist
there beats a heart like mine

Are you out there, are you waiting
Are you lonely, just like me?
Do you wonder if I’m out here?
Do you look search but you can’t see? 
Maybe there’s an answer
Maybe you’ll set me free
Maybe you’ll drop a pebble
and warm the heart in me

Castaway your fear…. 
you know I’m here

Are you out there, are you waiting
Are you lonely, just like me?
Do you wonder if I’m out here?
Do you look but you can’t see? 
Maybe there’s an answer
Maybe you’ll set me free
Maybe you’ll drop a pebble
Maybe you’ll drop a pebble
and warm the heart in me

and now your kiss ….

and now your kiss ….
sparkling mist before my eyes,
softest drops in my hair
wrapped together in the rain
it all fades away
no shy gazelle remains
unaware of anything
but you so close, so still
enfolded in your arms 
against your chest so warm
but warmer still the kisses
that start so soft and seeking
and build to bursting
pounding heart to pounding heart
breathing deep yet shaky
spirits tender touch and spread their wings
surging will to fly
and now your kiss
unaware of anything
but desire 
and this newness of your body pressed to mine 
so hard so strong so warm 
so sweet sigh is in your touch
such bliss
and now your kiss and now your kiss and now your kiss

Love Beyond Choice

It is a mystery. Love transforms us. Researchers, authors, poets, and philosophers have all tried to pin down the elusive ingredient. What makes one person so precious to us? Is it pheromones, is it hormones, is it neurotransmitters? Is it the energy of the heart itself that recognizes a long lost mate?

There are stages or depths of love. There is the rapturous, addictive phase of attraction- that “in love” feeling that may last a year or two. But somewhere comes the moment when you choose that person- even when faults, flaws, and weaknesses surface. You choose him, and that is the moment when you commit.

But beyond these, deeper than these, there is something more. There is a more powerful, soul-connecting kind of love. I am talking about the kind of love that can walk you through fire or deserts, or convince you that you can dig a swimming pool with a spoon for your beloved. A love that can survive heartbreak, tragedy, trauma, age, and infirmity. The love you see between two old souls walking slowly through the park on Sunday, holding hands. Through illness, through tragedy, or through despair, the light burns on in the heart.

This is the source of strength unparalleled. It can build mountains and ride the deepest waves with endless fortitude and determination. It is fed by tenderness and understanding. It is fed by compassion and kindness. It is fed by time and the pursuit of dreams. It seems a force stronger than death itself.

It is a love beyond choice.

I’ve Had it All

I’ve had my freedom
I’ve had success
I’ve had material things
I thought that I was blessed

I’ve had a trip to Dublin
I’ve gone to Peru
I’ve met a world full of men
But never known one like you

Life is just a puzzle
You’re the piece that belongs
To finish up the picture
I’ve been waiting for you for so long

 Maybe we just got lucky
But I think God panned it all
If I die, right here and now
I know that I’ve had it all

You know life has its reasons
For every winter and fall
I thought I knew the seasons
Without you I knew nothing at all

Maybe we just got lucky
But I think God panned it all
If I die, right here and now
I know that I’ve had it all
If I die, right here and now
I know that I’ve had it all

Diane Solomon (c) 1995
