Birthday Wishes

Clarence Rivers, Birth date: February 27

This birthday wish is not like any other

For it is placed on the wings of the wind

My lips whisper to a different realm

Happy Birthday Dad

I love you so

It is so hard to believe that you are not here

No card to buy

No gift to give

No telephone call

No visit


Yet my heart beats with the same wishes

Happy Birthday Dad

I love you so

Special delivery today from the wings of the wind

From me to you

A hug, a smile

Yes even a tear

Happy Birthday Day

I love you so

I miss your voice

Your hugs

Your kisses

I miss you calling me “Baby Girl”

I miss you so much Dad, not just today but always

Wind, please be strong and carry this message to the beyond

Swirl and dance and hold him tight

And whisper in his ear my love this night

I need to Inhale

Flames of me, flames of you

Breathing fire-Pure desire

I need to Inhale

Cravings, wanting you

Breathing fire-wet with desire

I need to Inhale

Flames of us- flesh melting into the other

Breathing fire Turning our love to desire

I need to touch

Touching you- touching me

Touching fire- erotic desire

Breathe fire

While the path may look cold

Is it not beautiful?

Do not be so sure your next steps are wrong

Do not be scared to venture along a new path


Or warm?

Judge with your complete spirit of self

Not with what the populace deems correct

No the difference between illusion and truth

Follow your heart, know your mind, and feed your spirit

Not with cold

With the mystic power of


Breathe In the Sensations

Breathe in the sensations--of gratitude

Discover the consciousness--of self-assurance

Feel the beauty--of smoothness

Know the touch--of gentleness

Laugh with --a playful heart


Discover the ability--to be enhanced

Feel the empowerment --of being inspired

Express amusement--with laughter

Life’s energy--Love

Gain insight--acceptance and surrender


Open and receptive--qualities of life

Pure energy --Freedom

Trust in love--natural folds

Be present--moment to moment

Breathe in the sensations—the essence of you

Fool On My Knees

Copyright, Tilly Rivers

Reaching into the air

Seeing the colours that aren’t really there

When will I learn that love is a fable?

And stop falling on my knees begging like a fool

Falling on my knees

Crying so loud

Sobs from the heart

Wrenching my heart; questioning who I am

Raise my hands to the sky

Clenched fists begging why

Why am I such a fool to believe?

Why am I such a fool to still care?

It does not seem to matter how much you hurt me

I still have a spot that won’t let you go inside me

I’m not a silly person without backbone or brain

Why than I ask; Am I such a fool when it comes to you?

“Let him go!” my mind screams

“Let him go!” My spirit begs “Release the pain”

Yet my heart hangs on like a fool

A fool on my knees

I have embraced life

I am so willing to go

My to do list is long

Each time I complete a mission

I add more

A little more daring

A little more fun

I have let life

Take my heart

My body

My soul

I am one with the wind

The sun and the rain


Each day in life

I do

I see

No path unexplored

No star undetected

No body of water untouched

No sunset concealed

I have decided

I will never have regrets

For a dream undiscovered

I will never know a page

Of a book unlearned, unread

Freedom is mine

I thank life each day

I praise the universe with a smile

Life has captivated me

Don't Drop Me

Tilly Rivers, 2010

Don't Drop Me

I’ve craved love-Wanted so badly for it to be true

Don’t drop me

I’ve opened myself to chance-A chance at love with you

Don’t drop me

I’ve always been scared to dream-Shut off the hope that love does exist

I won’t be able to survive the plunge


Don’t drop me
