Never Having To Ask

You know what I love about us? It’s never having to ask if you love me.  Now that’s true love.  With others I had to ask and while they would say of course I do. Did they really? Maybe they thought they did, but it wasn’t true love. It wasn’t that love you search your whole life for and you’re lucky if you find it.

With you I never had to ask if you would be there always. With others I had to. You know why?  Because I couldn’t really be sure.  And when a little rain fell you know what?  They weren’t.

I know what we have without having to ask because every minute of every day your actions make it crystal clear, tomorrow and every tomorrow after that rain or shine, good or bad when I wake your face will be the first one I see.

What about those who have to ask? I would say they shouldn’t.  They should simply enjoy the moment. But they should also understand that the person they’re with at that moment is only that, a person they’re with at that moment, nothing more nothing less. But that’s cool, everyone can’t have what we have.  True love is not meant to be found in every relationship, but every relationship can bring happiness. I Just hope they treat each relationship in their heart and in their mind accordingly and at the end of the day they’ll be alright   Who knows maybe they’ll get lucky enough to find what we have.

A New Decade…Are you out there?

Surrounded by friends and families the room counted down the final seconds of the decade and as the clock struck midnight exploded into cheers and laughter, hugs all around and glasses loudly clinking together as people toasted the new year, the new decade and amid it all I wondered to myself are you out there?

I have searched my whole life for you and on a few occasions, I thought I had found you. I used to think I knew what you would look like, who you would be but as the years went by I realized that I couldn’t know.  You could be the person who smiles at me on the train, the one who I meet at the grocery store or bump into on the street. You could even be here tonight. You could be anyone, but I suspect I’ll know it when I find you. I’ll know the first time our smiles find each other across a crowded room.  The first time we hold each other hand. The first time we look into each other eyes and our lips meet in a kiss. A kiss that leaves us lost in the moment and stirs our emotions like no other kiss has ever did before. I’ll know it because that kiss without any words will say I found you and I love you. 

I look around the room and the glasses are still clinking; the smiles are still all around and then out of nowhere your smile captures my eye from across the room.  I walked over smiled and said Happy New Year and I thought to myself yes, I know you’re out there and maybe just maybe we just shared our first smile.

My best friend, My strongest ally is the Lord

Each day I awake anxious to continue my conversation with you, to thank you for the chance to walk another day upon the Earth. I am encouraged in the belief that no matter where the day shall take me I never walk alone. Each day my life is little more enriched by the knowledge you are my savior and my soul burns with the light of a thousand lights knowing that because of my faith in you and your love for me nothing is impossible. I endeavor to let nothing or no one come between me and my faith. I am reassured in the belief that as I continue to give you praise and strengthen my faith in you nothing can diminish your love for me. I revel in the knowledge that I need not worry about earthly problems because you help carry my load and in your ultimate wisdom will bestow on to me the strength and courage to overcome.  I am fortunate enough to have found you for you are truly my best friend and my strongest ally and it is for that reason that I am truly blessed.

Home is Us

It’s been a long business trip and I cannot wait to be home again. Can’t wait until we are together again. Each sunrise I wake I reach for you but the sad truth is the space beside me is empty.

I miss holding you in my arms at night.
I miss seeing your beautiful eyes.
I miss the smile on your face.

I’ll be home soon because home is where I belong. Home is you and I. Home is us and I miss us

It’s you

I check my phone every few minutes for your text
I listen to songs the remind me of you
I close my eyes and I see your smile
I miss you every minute you are away
You have awaken my soul
You have given me strength
You have opened my heart to the joy of true love
You bring me true happiness
I count the minutes until I see you again
I can’t wait for when I can hold you again
You are my everything
I love you

Or else forgot about it.

Her eyes were her calling card and she knew it. Beautifuland especially good at drawing you in and once they had you all she needed to do was say the things that made you want to believe it was real.

You are my hero everyday she would tell me.
Promise me you’ll never leave she would ask.
I love you she would proclaim.

As much as I wanted to believe she was the one. As much as I wanted to believe her words were real. I knew that words were just that, words.

So I looked into her beautiful eyes, the ones I wanted to believe I would look into forever and said

Give me your heart
Make it real
Or else forget about it

Faced with this decision she looked back at me, closed her eyes, perhaps to let me go and said I can’t do it. Then she turned and walked away and just like that she was gone.  And that was more than telling than any words she ever uttered.
