Let's Share The Night

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Let's share the night together,
we'll turn the lights down low,
And listen to the stereo with
our favorite songs, and weíll
let love carry us along.

Donítí worry about what might
be ahead, letís just worry
about the moment

Let our kisses and breathless
moments carry us away, and maybe
we'll find some magic, somewhere
along the way in this love filled night.

I'll tell you I love you,
and youíll tell me you love me too..
I'll tell you I care about you
in more ways that I have ever
cared about another,

Because your heart is a open book,
well so is mine.

So let's not give up this love we have,
let the night slowly linger on,
And weíll stay together in time.

Let the promises we make see the
light of day so that they will
return to us someday.

Let the night lead on holding
each other tight, so we may find
out if this love affair is perfectly right.

Letís forget about the past and
all the hurt we have been through,
Letís start a night anew.

Let's share the night together
and I'll promise you love forever,
Letís make it right this time.


Thoughts of You

by

Sherri Emily Avery

~ I sit here in the evening twilight,
My thoughts are of you,
Iím missing you immensely,
Wishing I could be there by your side,
Holding you close. ~

~ I reminisce of our passion,
The way you kiss me so gently,
And caress me so tenderly,
Feeling your fingers touch every inch of my body,
Bringing chills down my spine. ~

~ Our passion growing towards ecstasy,
As we submit to love,
The feelings so overwhelming,
I go crazy with these thoughts of you. ~

~ I anticipate our next meeting,
With much excitement,
But until then,
My thoughts will be of you. ~

~ When I finally drift off to sleep,
I will be dreaming-
My dreams will be of a time
When I wonít have to wait to be in your loving arms,
I will be there with you for eternity,
Our souls as one,
I love you,
And my thoughts are of you.~


I'll Always Love You

by

Sherri Emily Avery

I want to sing and dance in the rain,
I want to share your passion and sing loves refrain,
and after, I want to walk beneath the rainbow.

I want to love you in the pale moonlight,
With the stars up above twinkling bright,
I want to hold you by the fllickering firelight,
I'll pull you close to me.

I want to hold your cheeks in the palm of my hands
And kiss you on the nose and of course your eyes too,
I'll take such delight in the nearness of you,
I want to hold you ever so tight and discover
all the mysteries of you.

We'll take a trip to the stars,
Where all the angels are,
To the heavens above,
There is nothing like our love,
And we'll get lost on our way.

The twinkle in our eyes will show the happiness we bestow,
And we'll know that it's a special love that you and I
Know now, so we won't be afraid to tell each other how
much we care.

You know I'll always love you,
And I'll always be there.


Just A Little Message

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Just a little message,
To tell you how I feel,
Of all the times,
You made our love so real.

Just a little message,
To let you know of all the times,
Your whispers of love to me,
sounds like the songs of music
Of the wind chimes.

Just a little message,
To say to you today,
My love for you grows
More and more each day.


This Love Within

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Your hair is as gold as honey,
and as smoothe as velvet across my skin.

Your lips are as red as a rose,
and when they kiss me,
they taste as sweet
as the sweetest of wines.

Your arms are long
enough to reach for me,
bringing me close to you.

The haven of your chest
brings me to pure bliss.

As you caress every
inch of my body, I can't hold
back this sensation you withdraw from me,
I almost feel like I'm commiting a sin.

I look into your eyes
and see a reflection of me,
and as you tell me you love me,
I can't hold back this love within.....


Who Is This Woman/Who Is This Man

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Co-author: Donald Lee Schoux, Jr.

Who is this woman,
who came into my life,
who made me believe
during times of strife.

Who is this man,
That brings in the night,
The one whose eyes are as
bright as the brightest stars?

Who is this woman,
Who makes my heart flutter?
It is clear to me now
That there will be no other.

Who is this man,
Who makes the rainbow appear
And shines it's colors above me?

Who is this woman,
Who speaks of true love?
Romance and passion
Who fits like a glove?

Who is this man,
And when in the night
Of the full moon,
I see his reflection?

Who is this woman,
Who has stolen my heart?
A heart that aches deeply,
While we are apart?

Who is this man,
When the wind starts to blow,
I can hear his whispers
of undying love?

Who is this woman,
Who brings out my smile?
A smile so big,
It goes on for a mile.

Who is this man,
The one whose lips are full of desire?
And when kissed,
Can make my heart unfire?

Who is this woman,
Who at first I was weary,
I know who she is,
I love you my Sherri..

Who is this man,
That brings me much passion,
Bringing me to my knees with so
Much attraction?

Who is this man,
That loves me so much,
That he can take away
All my pain and such?

Who is this man,
The one with every touch,
every whisper, every desire,
And with so much passion?

It must be you~ Donnie,
You are this man...


Come Back To Me, Darling

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Did I not give you enough attention?
Did I not understand?
Did I not kiss you enough
Hug you, hold you enough?
And tell you that I loved you?

Did I not smell the roses?
Did I not see the trees?
Or sit in the grass with you
And kiss you on our knees?

Did I not tell you,
You were special?
Or look into your eyes?
Is there a way you can tell me
So I will know what I need
To do to try?
I'm sorry that I hurt you,
I didn't mean to cause you any pain.

I cherish you more than you
Will ever know,
I know my compassion never showed.
I was selfish and just didn't see,
What you really need.
But my love, you meant the
World to me.

I don't want to see you go,
I'm sorry for all the pain,
Come back to me darling,
Let me erase the hurt,
I'm begging you, please.

Thing would be different,
I promise you now,
I will be more passionate
And fulfull all your dreams,
I know we can make it somehow.

If you will come back to me,
I can guarantee,
I will give you all that
You need in me.
Come back to me darling, please.

What do you do?

by

Sherri Emily Avery

When your heart is aching
and you feel there is no way out
What do you do?
When you're feeling lonely
and you feel your love has been blown away
and you really don't know if you should stay
What do you do?
When you know that your love is on the line
and you're not feeling so fine
When you feel insecure because of bitter words
and you're really not sure
What do you do?
When your love feels as though it has drained away
and your heart is in dismay
and you really don't know how to mend it
you just don't know what to say
What do you do?
When you come to no understanding
and you don't want your love to slip away
you don't want to have a ending
What do you do?
When you're thinking "Where did I go wrong"
and you're listening to your favorite songs
When he's out there and your in here
and there is silence between the two
What do you do?
When he comes in and he sits next to you
and he says "I have to say a few"
What do you do?
Well, I can say a word or two
You reach out your arms
and you hold him tight
and you say "I Love you too"
That is what you do......


Love Awaits You

by

Sherri Emily Avery

I wait for you
In the middle of the night
Slowly anticipating your arrival
Thoughts come every now and then
Of your strong hands
Ever so softly
Caressing my body
Of the special moments
We share together
I want you to know
That I can not wait
Until your arrival
Every minute that passes
Seems like eternity.


A New Beginning

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Isn't it strange,
That in such a short time,
That we have begun to know
each other so well?
And when we are apart it
seems like we are in living hell?
I trust that our love, our hearts,
our faith is what brought
me to you,
We do some things that we never
thought we would do.
Staying up all night,
Waiting for the hours to
pass us by,
seems like eternity,
Counting every minute,
Watching the clock's hand
circling bye and bye.
We played with danger,
But we have found in our
first kiss that we are
no longer strangers.
There is no more guilt,
Our past dues we have paid,
We now look towards the future,
Each and every day.
So no more bothers,
We will continue on our way,
No more pain to suffer,
They have all gone away.
No more careless loves,
No more hearts torn in two,
Heading for the future,
I know this love is true.
No more wondering,
where they are in the night,
No more lonely days,
passing us by,
We tried.....
The pain has now subside,
Now it's just you and I,
It was their loss,
They did not try.....


I Am Thankful

by

Sherri Emily Avery

I am thankful for your love
I am thankful for all the heavens above
and all the flying doves.
I am thankful for your touch
It relieves all my tension and such.
I am thankful for your eyes
The ones that look at me deep inside.
I am thankful for your presence
For you have affected a big part
of my life and I couldn't stand
to live without you in it.
I am thankful for your friendship
For you bring much happiness
and laughter into my life.
I am thankful for you
For you make all my wishes come true.


In My Heart

by

Sherri Emily Avery

In my heart,
I hold your love close,
It's your love I need the most.
I sit here as I watch the sunrise
In the morning dew.
I see the tip of it looking like a flame,
As I'm feeling this burning love for you.
I sit here alone with all my thoughts of you,
Watching the sunlight begin to fill the room.
Thinking of our future,
And all the things that we will do,
You holding me in your arms,
Your heart beating against mine,
As we get lost in time.
As I dream of that distant place,
Where you will always be mine,
In my heart you will always be,
The one, the only one for me!
I don't look forward going through the day,
Knowing you're not here with me.
Thinking of the endless hours,
And the days dragging by.
Why does it have to be this way?
I have a wish for you and me,
And I hope that the good Lord grants it,
For you see,
I wish that you would bring your love back to me.
In my heart,
You will never leave,
So I don't have to grieve,
In my heart,
You're my only one,
And I want you with me always,
Till all our days are done.


I Love You

by

Sherri Emily Avery

Through the ages,
Through my poignant collection of poetry,
And through all my pages,
No poem or word could ever completely
Express my love for you.
Your love speaks to my heart,
My desires for you are so meaningful,
Honest, and so true of abiding love.
No words could ever express these feelings
That I have for you inside my heart.
Or even help define my emotions.
A new range of my feelings
Are being explored,
Ever since that first sensation.
But I can say to you now,
You are the person that I want
To commit my life to,
Make all spoken and unspoken promises ,
Encourage, trust, and appreciate you.
Of all the words I could ever say or write,
One which is most important,
That couldn't express my feelings more,
Or ensure that our relationship will last,
And our hopes and dreams will be pure.
And the words are,
I Love You......


My Promise To You

by

Sherri Emily Avery

I'll never forget,
The first that we met,
I remember it like it was yesterday,
It's stays deep in my heart,
The day you found me.

We have promised that we would give
To each other all there is to give
For as long as we both shall live.

I never want wealth or fame,
I only want to have your name,
I only want to wear
That tiny band of gold,
And always have you to hold.

I will keep my promise to you,
I will never be untrue,
Even though sometimes I will be
Away from you.

I will never brake your heart,
I've always loved you from the start.
I must say to you this very special day,
I won't let it take my pride,
I want to be your bride.

I will never let you feel empty inside,
I will never brake the ties that bind,
I will never leave you behind,
I will never let our love die.

So I make another promise to you, my love,
We will live and we will learn,
And where ever you may go,
My heart will always follow.

And now it's plain to see,
That the promise's that I have made to thee,
Will show in time, you see,
That you and I will never be lonely,
I love this you and me.

Forever Yours

by

Sherri Emily Avery

I will be forever yours
Because when I'm in your arms
I feel like nothing else matters
More than anthing
In the world....

I will be forever yours
Because when we look at each other
I can see how much love is there
Our eyes tell us the closeness
We share is something really special
really deep....

I will be forever yours
Because only with you
I feel safe and secure
And so loved....

I will be forever yours
Because,
I wouldn't want it any other way.


Burning Desires

by

Sherri Emily Avery


I crave for you
In a sinful way
To touch
To taste
To have you
My heart pounding
When I see you
I'd give anything
To hear the softness
Of your voice
Just to think of it
Tingles my every senses
My thoughts come to your smile
From you tender lips
I crave so much for
The warmth of your eyes
Melts deep within my soul
The beauty of your body
Brings burning desires.


When We Hurt Someone

by

Sherri Emily Avery

When we hurt someone,
We don't realize how much
Pain we bring to those we hurt.
We know when someone hurts us
The pain we feel,
But we never take into consideration
That maybe the one we have hurt,
Has feelings just life ourselves.

When we hurt someone,
It may not be intentional,
But the pain is still there,
And the bitterwords once spoken
Puts a scar upon your heart,
And it bleeds, with each thought.

When we hurt someone,
We don't understand or realize
Why we do or say these things,
We know we are wrong,
But continue on....

But I do know,
That when we hurt someone,
We should feel bad,
And therefore we should hurt too.
The only thing left to do is
To apologize to the one you've hurt,
And hope and pray they can find it
In their hearts to forgive you.
For this is the price you pay,
When you have hurt someone.
