Your My Best Friend.

The Song


Your My Best Friend

written by John Deacon of Queen

written for his wife, Veronica Tetzlaff Deacon

I admit I have a soft spot for the music from the band Queen. The musicality and the way words from their songs have stuck with me when most others don’t; proves it.

This song for me essentially sums up a lot of what I consider to be at the heart of romance. So listen to the song and read the words. By the way they  John & Veronica have just celebrated 38 years married.

The Words

Ooh you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It’s you you’re all I see
Ooh you make me live now honey
Ooh you make me live

Ooh you’re the best friend that I ever had
I’ve been with you such a long time
You’re my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you

Oh you’re my best friend

Ooh you make me live

Ooh I’ve been wandering round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You’ve stood by me girl
I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend

Ooh you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooh you make me live now honey
Ooh you make me live

You’re the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I’ll never be lonely
You’re my only one
And I love the things
I really love the things that you do
Ooh you’re my best friend

Ooh you make me live

I’m happy at home
You’re my best friend
Oh you’re my best friend
Ooh you make me live
You’re my best friend


turns dark to light

turns dark to light

I close my eyes, and there you are;

you dazzle me, from near and far;

 your silhouette – it strikes me too;

no other like it, uniquely you;

 all perfect curves, from head to toe;

from hips to calves, from eyes to nose;

both inside and outside, your brilliance flows;

 I crave your kiss, my heart explodes;

still strong without you, I remain;

though hard it is, each passing day;

 I am bolstered too, each sunless night;

your voice I hear, turns dark to light;

I want you now, stay near to me;

eyes open wide, still you I see –

Today’s suggestion

Write an encouraging message and stick it to the mirror. You can use a white board marker, lipstick or a post-it

You might just want to say.

You are looking at someone beautiful, that is you.

Smile because you are loved.

You look  gorgeous today.

Look in this mirror and say “I am beautiful and I love me and my life” for 30 days because it’s true and I want you to believe it too.

Maybe you could put on some lipstick and kiss the mirror as part of your message 

Some cool quotes

Love is a fruit in season at all times,
and within reach of every hand.

~   Mother Teresa

Love to faults is always blind,
Always is to joy inclined.
Lawless, winged, and unconfined,
And breaks all chains from every mind.

~ William Shakespeare.

Gift the love of your life with undistracted,
untelevisioned, unhurried attentiveness.

~   Mary Anne Radmacher

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. 
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. 
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it…
~   Ivan Panin

We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power.  Then will our world know the blessings of peace. 
William Ewart Gladstone

It is beautiful time of year where I am.

I love purple and the Jacarandas are in bloom. They are magnifcent trees.  Love this line of the poem following “to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.”

My partner would do really well if he decided to pack a picnic and take me to a park with all the beautiful trees.

The Jacaranda Tree

 A Jacaranda tree stands tall, and sways as if to say,
Look! At this magnificence, I’m wearing blue today.
forgive the way I shout aloud, my lack of modesty,
but nowhere in this troubled world is finery like me.

Light rays slide between each leaf, to settle on the tips
to lightly kiss your face with a hundred million tiny lips.
You only have to lift your eyes to greet the filtered sun
a sight I guarantee will warm the heart of everyone.

Though very tall, my leaf is small, its form is one of fern,
large panicles of bluebells swell to trumpet unconcern.
A Bee collecting nectar from an ample deep white throat,
takes flight to join its family, and of its feast to gloat.
Look up to see each fern like leaf, floating up on high,
like footprints of a centipede that stroll across the sky
See how far my branches reach, admire their greenery,
so beautiful and strong, I am the Jacaranda tree.

On Passion

Also look around my blog there is a lot of fun and great romantic tips for you.

The Heart is an organ of fire! Love must transcend passion for it to thrive and flourish .

Love comes in all shapes and forms but passion is what makes the earth tremble beneath our feet, passion is a deep, overwhelming feeling of fervent love, mixed with an avid enthusiasm and a fanatical desire.

With great passion comes the risk of encountering an even greater hurt and so some passion quotes can be quite angry such as this passion saying by jean Racine “The heart that can No longer love passionately, Must with fury hate” which is unfortunately often the case, the two opposite ends of passion!

‘I wasn’t kissing her I was whispering in her mouth’ by Chico Maroc.
Keep whispering my love.

When I Saw Your Eyes

When I Saw Your Eyes

When you came to your door tonight,
And your beautiful eyes gazed at me
From the darkness within,
The world around me came to a stop,
For just a few seconds,
As I saw the love from within you.

You looked at me with your warm smile,
Your black hair around your face,
And whispered softly, “hi baby”,
And once again,
I was at your mercy.

For when you look into my soul
And I hear the sound of your sweet voice,
My heart opens to you my love,
With all of my dreams now fulfilled.

I never knew that a love like this
Could ever exist,
A love that consumes me,
A love so powerful,
And so overwhelming,
That I fear if I were without it,
My heart would no longer have a meaning
To its existence,
For the love that flows through it now,
Is what keeps me alive,
Keeps me whole.

As I gaze into your eyes my love,
Down into the depths of your very being,
I can see the love you feel for me,
A love as strong as my own,
A love that fills me so full of emotion,
So full of hope for the future,
That I pray I will spend the rest of my days,
Gazing into your eyes.
