On the last day of Christmas my true love sent to me
Drummers in front of my apartment
Drumming gloriously attracting my attention and everyone else’s on my block
I watched the crowd, enjoying a lovely wonderful performance
Then I heard the doorbell.
It was my true love,
Dressed as Santa to give me the sweetest gift ever.
“Merry Christmas”, he said with a Christmas kiss. … More 12 days of Christmas: 12 Drummers Drumming
He knows music is my one weakness and he has it new and ready for me each time.
This time, I hear my piper piping:
“Unforgettable, that’s what you are
Unforgettable, though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more
Unforgettable in every way
That’s how you’ll stay
That’s why darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too”
Then I smiled.
I couldn’t have loved him more in that moment than I ever have. … More 12 days of Christmas: 11 Pipers Piping
All for love,
Even though you don’t dance, you were bent on erasing the bad memories and giving me better ones to live my days.
All for love,
Even though you wouldn’t have bothered, we had to have that dance for the sake of the sweet silent night.
All for love.
And even though you always try to keep your feeling under wraps
I see it clearly
I see it all the time
I see how the heart of my true love leaps in excitement for me.
Always. … More 12 days of Christmas: 10 Lords a Leaping
A princess is who I feel like when I’m in your arms
Dancing in the silence of the melody that is only ours
What you gift to me today is more beautiful than what you gifted me yesterday
And I am grateful for everything that you give to me
It gets me dancing in the euphoria of your untold affection … More 12 days of Christmas: 9 Ladies Dancing
The gift of my true love is love,
Unconditional love that I will cherish forever and for always
Love that multiplies and bear fruits
The joy of it is in the milk and honey therein
The joy of giving more than the bliss of receiving
The joy of holding in my arms your seed that is borne from my loins
I am glad to be that maid that is milked for the sake of the gift my true love sent to me … More 12 days of Christmas: 8 Maids a Milking
“Love comes quickly. It never quite announces itself, just sort of comes in through the back door. Twice in my life I’ve been in love. Strong love that each time has brought me to my knees and forced me to surrender my heart whether I wanted to or not.
Love takes so much from you. First, it seduces your innocent hearts. Second, it promises you forever. Third, it takes away your virgin heart. And then it packs up and leaves with a piece of you with it.
The first time I fell in love, it was every girl’s dream.
The second time I fell in love, it was a more grown-up love. It wasn’t perfect but it was no-holds barred.
The third time is the charm. I feel no anxiety, just cared for and thought of, even if I can’t always have in like the 90’s.” … More 12 days of Christmas: 3 French Hens
“Come over, let’s play love”, he said to me.
I didn’t understand what playing love meant
Until I went over and found out it was his way of saying,
“I’ve missed you. Come hang out with me. We could cuddle or see a movie or just make out. Whatever you want, just come be with me”.
It was after then that I realized,
We were made to love and be mated for life,
Working together to build nests and raise our young together.
We are immortalized in each other for life
And I won’t forget us in a hurry
Because it happened on the second day of Christmas … More 12 days of Christmas: 2 Turtle Doves
At first, I thought,
I’d rather you didn’t send the bird with the gift
Then again, I thought,
How would I understand the delicacy of your feelings for me if the bird didn’t come with the pear tree?
I wanted the fruit
It looked so juicy
Yet I didn’t want to lose the bird
So I tip toed quietly to pluck it
Only to lose the bird to the winds eventually
Perhaps next year,
If you decide to send me another partridge in a pear tree
I will keep watch of what’s more important
The significance of your love for me. … More 12 Days of Christmas: A Partridge in a Pear Tree
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year
It doesn’t surprise me
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying “I love you” I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again … More A heart with Christmas love
