This poem was the first one to be converted into a song. Hopefully 9 to 11 more will take place. The songs will be about cancer survivors and their caretakers. The goal is to create and sell a CD of songs with proceeds going to the ACS. If you'd like to listen to the song and see a "mini-video" given to my wife for Mother's Day, click on the link below... pictures are of children, in-laws, my wife, and a little bit overweight author, pictures covering our time together, now closing in on nine years...
A 1,000 times, I dreamed of you.
Dreams of long walks,
Dreams of far-away places,
Being one, exploring together.
A 1,000 times I kissed you.
First thing in the morning,
Last thing at night,
Many times in between.
A 1,000 times we went out.
Simple dates, always special,
Never boring, always fresh.
A 1,000 times we were surprized.
By gifts we gave,
The words we said,
The stories we shared.
A 1,000 times I smiled.
Dancing a night away,
Or going on a road trip.
A 1,000 times we cheered.
And grade school musicals.
A 1,000 times I lived in fear.
Laying in hospital beds,
IV's filled with chemo drugs,
Broken from a car crash.
A 1,000 times we made love.
Always special and unique,
Memories of a touch, a kiss,
Make my dreams so sweet.
A 1,000 times we dreamed of a future.
No burdens or obligations,
Simple joys done together,
Growing old, as one.
A 1,000 times, in a 1,000 poems, never written.
I'm grateful, to call you, my own.
Not to possess or control,
But to caress and share our souls.
