THE ONE (c.) Copyright 2013 Giovanna Sclafani

So you think you have found the one
The one that makes your head spin
To be your beginning and end
Your heart is pounding like drums
Every time you speak
Your body becomes weak
And you tremble when he is near
Panic comes over you
And you get an overwhelming fear
You just can’t let go
Afraid to fall
So afraid that you will fall
So far down
That you’ll never get up again
As you go crashing down
So far down
To the ground

Please tell me that you’ll catch me
Should I fall?
And not break me
Or my heart
And that’s a start
You just don’t know
You have no idea
Of how deep I feel
It’s so unreal
Like deja vu
You get it too

I felt our souls collide
The moment we met
Like some sort of Kismet
Love that lived before
Has returned once more

I am gutted
And can’t think
I can’t sleep
Can’t eat
I fear
When you are near
That you won’t care
My heart sinks
But continue to think
Of how wonderful it could be
For you and me

Oh how wonderful
It would be
To be entwined
Your heart and mind
Just like old times
From long ago
I really think so.

Tell me true
Don’t you long for it too?
It’s like Deja Vu
You know it’s true
You cannot run and hide
Love will capsize and energize
A love that never dies
Has come back to haunt us
Then taunts us
In its revelry
Of what could be

Soul Mates
‘Tis our fate
You cannot fight,
You just cannot fight
It will take you down
And toss you around
Again and again
And torment your mind
Until you finally resign
You have to admit
What you are feeling
And let it in
then it can begin,
Let the light in once more
From the one that you adore.
Lovers forevermore.

Leave it all behind (c.)2013 Giovanna Sclafani

181627_485426341530442_1743186754_nLeave it all behind
Lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in this place
Called the human race.It’s a dog eat dog world
With our ego’s all intact
And our heads in a swirl
And that’s a fact

Good versus Evil
Who will win the race?
And cross the finish line first,
Pushing and shoving money in their face
Greed is the driving thirst.

So you’ve won,
Before they’ve begun.
You’ve won the grand prize,
A stack of money green.
But love you’ve never seen.
So you run and hide.
In your island in the sun,
While the jealous one’s chide,
Your life has just begun.

Can your wealth bring love?
Can you really know this is true?
Leave it all behind when you die,
For the reapers are never shy
To steal it all away
Hurdled in corners dark
Waiting to get their part
While you lay in a cold dark tomb
They will spend your wealth
With sins done in stealth.

And your cold body now shivers,
To the naked bones where you lie,
On the day that you die
You’ll leave it all behind
Never mind to worry
Never you mind
You’ll have to leave it all behind.

Does anyone really care? RIP to DeShon 7-26-96—–2-4-13 A victim of a drive by shooting

You gotta walk son
but you better run
someone’s got a gun

Talk to me
Tell me why
The angel’s have to cry
it’s just not fair
Why did he have to die

Nothing’s fair
Does anyone really care?
The authorities
just want to solve a mystery
but a child lies dead
A terrible trajedy

There was no reason
A nightmare come true
His best friend now dead
Had his whole life still ahead
Just trying to get home from school
He didn’t break any golden rules

God tell me why?
His poor family cries
His best friend my son
His head is a mess
He was there
Does anyone really care?
Another child gone
but life still goes on

And I still wonder
Does anyone really care
As I listen to the thunder
The rain comes pouring down
But Life goes on and on
but for one boy it’s gone
from one stupid act
And that’s a fact

God tell us it’s not true
It’s too sad
it’s so bad
it’s so very bad
He won’t be back
He won’t be going to school
He won’t have life
It’s not fair
but does anyone really care?

My tears come flowing down
but no one can hear the sound
Of the heart breaking loud
and an angel is flying in the clouds
As the morning brings the new dawn
But now he’s gone
Goodbye Dear De Shon

In loving memory of De Shon a son, a brother, a best friend, now an Angel  the died to soon and was robbed of his life by one stupid act of violence.  He is sadly missed by his family and friends especially by my son…. his best friend.Image

A purple Rose from an angel!

Well anyone that knows me would know that I love the color purple. I love all shades of Purple and have even written a poem about it. Purple is a mysterious color and is the color for those seeking spiritual enlightenment and is the color of royalty from ancient times. Priests also wear this color to signify the passion of Christ and repentance.

I just love the color and that’s really all it is.  But I am a spiritual person who believes in spiritual and supernatural experiences that I have had myself. That is another story well sort of.

I had been having a terrible day recently and everything seemed to be going wrong that day. I had terrible pain in my leg from a burn wound that I had obtained right before New Years and a second degree burn which are very painful and slow to heal. My burn is on my leg and was the size of the palm of your hand;a large hand.  I was so exhausted and pain ridden and by the end of the day, I was ready to fall into my bed soon when my grandson found a silken purple rose in the living room. I told him”where did that come from” ?  He said that he didn’t know but found it there. I asked if it belonged to his mom and if she left it here. He said no, it’s not hers. I was perplexed at this and asked my grandson to follow me with the rose into my bedroom and I’d show him why. On my dresser, in a vase was an identical real rose that was wilted and dried.  Only this new rose that he found was silk and had a white colored stem and leaves.  When he placed it in the vase along side of the other purple rose, it wilted down exactly like my other real purple rose… My grandson said ‘Look it’s doing the same thing as the other rose’

Now for most people they would say Oh well, it’s a coincident but for me it was like an angel sent me a ‘hug’ that i needed after having a horrible day. Silly? You say?  Maybe! But  since I do love purple and I adore roses, it made me happy!  And for me, that day, it meant everything.  I felt like it was a hug from an angel… I believe in the supernatural but therein lies a long story for later.Image

You can’t see me (sad song)

You turned away

and were gone

taking with you my song


you couldn’t stay

‘Cause you’re not free

what does it matter

What does it matter to me

well it just means everything

everything to me


I hope you’d stay

but you’re not free

now there’s nothing left

nothing left for me

because you can’t see

No you just can’t see me


I wrote you a note

I know that you knew

that I had high hopes

but hopes can’t survive

without you near

If only you could hear

my heart cry

a love so true

like you really knew


Now I’m feeling blue,

Oh so blue, without you.

Oh do you ever give me a thought,

late at night.

Do you ever think of what could be,

If only you could stay,

Oh how beautiful it would be.

It would be like a dream come true,

Oh what a dream!

what a dream for me and you,

it would be like heaven,

But we can’t be in heaven now.

we’ll just have to wait somehow,

for heaven!november-sunset-on-the-gulf-2

Where Love has flown (c,) Copyright Oct.12,2012

Where love has flown

‘Golden and silver light flashing across the sky

Red sunsets and pale moon, love that never dies’


In the dark blue haze of twilight,

Shadows dancing across the sky!

Birds flying high, far from sight,

Images of him flash before my eyes!


In the dim light,

Birds are flying high,

Touching the sky.

Where have they gone?

Have they heard heavens song?



Dawn brings the golden sunlight shining.

Blue birds singing nearby me,

As I gaze in the clear blue skies,

A vision of him again flashes,

Before my eyes!

Where has he gone?

Has he heard heavens song?


Memories of love from days of past,

Love meant to last.

Where has love flown?

Has it heard heaven’s song?



Don’t send me away…. (a fetus cries)

Don’t  send me away

Mom, I heard you talking today,

You and daddy want to send me away.

I just got here,

Did you think I wouldn’t hear?

How do you think I feel?

That you don’t want me.

I let out a silent cry

You couldn’t hear me

I need comforting

And to feel you close to me

I can hear your heartbeat

Can you hear mine?

It may be tiny, but it’s beating loud

Don’t wrap me in a shroud

Why don’t you give me a chance?

To live and breathe and dance,

You won’t be sorry I came

You’ll see when I am born

You will know my name.

I don’t want to go!

I don’t want to go!

I’ll be lonely in heaven,

Waiting there for you.

The angels will rock me,

And sing me a lullaby,

But I will always cry,

When I look down at you,

And miss you.

Can you hear me cry?

I don’t want to go!

I don’t want to go!

Don’t make me go!

Mom and Dad,

Please don’t send me away!

I can only pray.

I need to be loved!

I was sent from heaven above,

To bring you love!
