Every life needs another life
And every heart, another
And yours, just might, need mine? Tonight
Every day is a new day
And every hour is ours to share
And every heart needs another heart
And yours just might need mine tonight?baby, baby
Yours might need mine, tonight, baby.
Every one has heartache
And everyone gets lonely
And every love needs another love
And yours just might need mine tonight?
Yours just might need mine tonight, ohhhh
Everyone needs someone to talk to
Everyone needs, needs someone to love
Everyone life needs another life
And yours just might need mine tonight?.
Yours just might

Who is she
Why does she
Capture him in that way
I want to see
For my own sake
The one that takes him far away
He keeps her near
Where he can always hear
Everything she has to say
She takes him
To a place
That helps him find his way
But his way
Away to where
What is he seeking
Why do I care
Especially when it’s not me
That he hears
She is the one
Who penetrates his
Shell opening his heart
To reveal the depths
Beneath the windows of their souls
To be jealous is defined as being envious with resentment. I don’t like this emotion as it screams loudly that you are not confident in your place in the relationship. Those who experience jealousy may be expressing their dislike that their partner is giving away, to others, what they so desperately want or need. Whether it be attention, sex, intimacy, communication, or time. When the person encounters the recipient of his attention this dragon rears its ugly head.
Jealousy can spark the ugly side of some people, having them act in a demeanor that is unbecoming of love. Yet still they profess to love you at their best. Then on the other hand it can also be complimentary because your attention means so much. Or does it? I was not a jealous woman because I didn’t find any need for the emotion. Not that I believed I was the bomb (well maybe) but I honestly never really cared that much. I know that is cold but it probably was more of a numbness than coldness.
I always loved men’s attention and received quite a bit. But no specific man held my attention so I basked in a variety at times. But that does not mean that I have never felt jealousy. Indeed, I have and the first time I recognized it, I laughed. Of course, it meant that I was finally growing in my relationships with men. There was someone I cared for whom I felt was not giving me what I needed. As I watched him give it to another woman, it struck deeply within my heart. But a question arose, was it really mine to receive in the first place?
For if I were his and he meant purposely for me, then he would not be giving away anything that was mine. Likewise, I would not either. Realizing this made me reevaluate the relationship. Who was this man to me and why was I wasting time with someone who was not a part of my purpose. As it turns out I was chasing something that didn’t belong to me. I was not at peace and was uncomfortable in my own skin.
Healthy reminders about where you stand in a relationship will help to ward off these sneaky, sometimes ugly feelings of jealousy. A quick note just to say hello or love you. A special song, poem or word that uplifts their day. A single rose with no card but just because. An impromptu lunch at your job. An innocent kiss that’s not sexual but says so much. A light touch on the hand. Feeling the energy of love’s warmth can ward off those occasional feelings of jealousy. Love should be fed continuously and infinitely. Don’t allow jealousy to steal your heart.
As I watched the video, I was impressed. Tina Turner looks great! Oh what peace does for you. She is in love too. With a man 16 years younger than she. You know for us here at Fedora Loves Poetry that is great!
Tina is an inspiration to many. She found her way back from such a dark journey and delighted in herself first. She built a life for herself and shared her heart with another. But it begins with loving yourself and realizing that you are worthy of much more in this life.
How the soul lifts when one is free!
Fedora loves you. Peace
