Two Years Ago Today


Two years ago today,
If I hadn’t built up enough courage to venture
I would’ve never dawned my gym shorts
And proclaimed meeting a stranger
Was my form of adventure
2 years ago today,
If I hadn’t unchained my heart
took a flaming torch to the past
and set free my spirit,
I would’ve been too busy looking back
and missed out on a fresh start
Honestly, 2 years ago today
I told myself
You weren’t what I wanted
You weren’t what I had in mind
But God had a plan
And You, were his First choice
That answer to the prayer
I was aching to find
Because of 2 years today
I am blessed beyond compare
God knows why,
Why He brought you here
He knows your heart
And if, it is his will
Me, Loving You
Then I have nothing to fear
Today, I’m thankful
For the strength you’ve given me
To let go and love unconditionally
For the joy you’ve brought my heart
For a love that’s blossomed
Ever so beautifully, right from the very start
The laughter that fills,
what was once an empty space
Is now sealed with a smile,
that’s engraved on my face
A love like this normally comes once in a lifetime
And for you my Darling William
I wouldn’t trade these 2 years
for anything in its place

I Love You
Happy 2 years

Who am I but a collection of what once was?
Rain, sunshine, spirit, substance, fear and love
Cycles of life and death, amnesia and revelation.
A traveler on a quest for purpose and happiness
Looking outside I see shadows.
Looking inside I see my true self.
Surely, my surroundings define me.
Rarely do I acknowledge that I define them.

A collection of once was, yet I still collect.
Need something from others. Need love.
Touch. Share. Gather. Give.
Only a heart already open allows love in.
I forget what I already know.
and just do what feels right.

Every time I see you

When you look at me,
My heart skips a beat
When you hold me in your arms
I feel so complete
Even when it’s silent
No words are necessary
So no need to speak
You show me what
Amazing looks like
Every time I see you

The Plan



I promised myself
I’d never fall
So around my heart
I’ve built a wall
I’ve convinced myself
Love will never find me again
But destiny knew better
Just a matter of how and when  

That night you asked me on a date
To me it was just another night
Getting to know a friend
Chilling, sharing a plate
In my head I went over the rules
Telling myself to play it cool
If it seems too good
Leave reason for doubt
Be a good girl and no staying out
If sex was the question – always wait
And no kissing until at least the 2nd date  

My rules were simple
I had a good plan
Dinner and a Movie
And a few winning hands
But then you kissed me
And everything went black
Nervously I pulled back
Trying to grasp the composure,
my emotions lack  

Your persistence I admire
Dauntingly your eyes showed desire 
I started thinking I should call It a night
But my limbs were too weak to put up a fight
You kissed me again and I slowly gave in
Right then …
I cared less who you were
Or where you’ve been
I kept thinking
We can write our destiny
Chapter One…
This is where, our story begins 

Meeting you was fate 
But falling in Love
Was never in the plan
For while emotionally
I was trying to sneak out
My untamed heart
Somehow snuck you in

You Are

You are the reason I smile
The reason, I want to make you smile
Mesmerized, chasing butterflies around my heart
The light at the end of the tunnel
That subtle tingle down my spine
You are the reason
For what it is I seek
Simple joys of Life,
Comfort, Love, Laughter
And all that our life together has to offer
You have become that safe spot
that I didn’t think I needed

To Love (Random Thought)

To truly love is utter madness
There is always a test of Will
Now that you’ve found it
What WILL you do to sustain
What WILL you do to maintain
What Will you do to keep it
That which you’ve set aflame ?

If you're a bird..

(My daughter pretending to be a bird)

My darling daughter
Every day I wake
I treasure every moment
I get to spend with you
Today, as we laugh and played
Pretending to be birds
Soaring through the air
I smiled;
Because you have no idea
How much you’ve given me
I watch you stretch your arms out
Pretending to soar
And all I could think of was
Be her wind
Might not make sense
But if you wanna be a bird
I’ll always want to be the wind
Safely beneath your wings
I’ll be the sound you hear
Whispering; its Ok to leave the edge
Giving you the freedom to fly
The courage to soar
Lifting you so high
You’ll have own view, on how to see the world
Not by anyone elses standards, but by your own
And when you’re not strong enough to fly     
I’ll be your gentle guide
And when you just want to soar
I’ll be the balance you need
And when you are tired
I’ll carry you, for as long as you need me
And no matter, how old you get
I’ll always be here
So as long as you want to be a bird
I’ll always want to be your wind.

Love You Eternally

Here and Now (Random Thought)

Struggling between facts and fiction
I'm lost but I'm alive
Everyone around me trying to make a statement
Then there's me
I'm just trying to survive

I wanna be.. pt. III

For everything that you have given me
I feel like I owe you forever
And if forever is what it takes
Just say the word and forever it’ll be
I wanna be so much for you
Somehow what we have going, it feels true
And of all the people I can think of
My heart screams only for you.

I wanna be the one that makes your heart light
I wanna be the one that lights up your life
I wanna be the one to ignite your smile
I wanna be the one that lingers on your mind
I wanna be the twinkle in your eye
I wanna be your only girl
Because already, I consider you my Guy

And even on days when you’re feeling down
I wanna be the one to chase away your frown
And when you feel stressed
I wanna be the one to remind you how much you’re blessed
And when you feel you can’t reach no more
I wanna be the hand, yours look for
And when things don’t go your way
I wanna be the one to say hun, things will turn out ok.
And when you feel discourage
I wanna be the voice you listen to for courage

And when you stumble upon rainy days
I wanna be the one to chase the clouds away
And when things get too tense
I wanna be the one reminding you how to play
And when all you need is a calm day
I wanna be the one, quietly beside you I'll lay
I wanna be the one that colors your world bright
And snuggles you close throughout the night
I wanna be the one you can’t wait to see
I’d never leave you lonely
For my heart tells me,
This is where...
 I wanna be

Good Morning



Good Morning
To the strings of my thoughts
The pitter patter sound that beats in my heart
The voice at the end of my screen
To the one that treats me like a Queen

There nothing more refreshing
Than waking to thoughts of you in my head
First thing when I rise
And even sweeter when I’m off to bed

What Makes you Different ?


What makes you different from him or I
A questions that’s been puzzling
my pessimistically skeptic mind

What makes you different?
Words I ask myself
Is it desperation to find a fault
That mentally, 
your character, I assault
If all men were created the same
What makes you different?
Or does it only apply
to the way you play the game?
What makes you different from the rest?
If I cut you will you not bleed?
If I shatter your emotions?
Will your heart not recede?
What makes you different?
Can you honestly say
that you can love
the same person always?

You get upset
when put in the same class, as the others from the past
But what makes you different
And what makes you think
whatever this is,
Will it last ?

What makes you different from the rest
Will you not break when put to the test
Will you walk away
Because you think its whats best
What makes you different I ask myself?
Can you love me for the person I want you to see
Because the person I am with you
Is better than the person I used to be

When in love, you see no end
Nothing she does can make you break or bend
But what about, when there’s not much more you can take
Will you take back your love
 and replace that with disdain or hate
So what makes you different from all the others I date
Your heart beats in your chest
Blood runs through your veins
Your skin may be different
But don’t you all think the same ?

After all this time



Never thought I would
Never thought I could
But now I have
And it feels good  

We met at a crossroad
But your choices I couldn’t bear
So I took my own path
Even though nothing seemed clear  

Felt like an eternity letting go
Strength is what I lacked
So afraid of the path I chose
Fear kept me looking back  

But after all this time
Never thought I'ld be here
My conscience is clear
My heart is open 

After all this time
I can pass you by
Without a tear
Or hurt inside
I've healed my pride
Lost a love
And gained
A friend.

Live Out Loud

Been here before, seen it all
Thrown pain, resentment, forgiveness
Now much needed caution to the wind
Not afraid to let go
Or completely give in
Not afraid to accept
Nor afraid to reach in
Still confused by this emotion
You want
Then you don’t
You love
Then you won’t
The feelings
Some are afraid to face
Too many moons past
With time callously misplaced
And the only thing I have to show
Are the lines left on my face
This is my now
This is my when
Stepping outside the lines
Shunning the past
Embracing the future
I’ve settled for less
Now I’m ready for more
Living and breathing
In this moment
For when my time has come
I can lift my eyes and say
Don’t cry for me
Treasure my memories always
This was my life
I’ve lived it my way
With no regrets
Only how, I saw best.

Brown Skin

Skin like garden silk
Hair glistens like gold under the sunlit sky
Eyes hold the steps to the soul
Lips like  butter
you just want to lather all over
Arms and Legs stretched tall
From start to where they end
Brown skin
You’re sexy as hell

Just a Kid


I'm just a little kid
and my Daddy thinks I'm fine.
He say's I never cause him problems,
but my Mama say's he's blind.

I have to eat at the table.
I can't eat and watch T.V.
She makes me say 'Yes not Yeah',
Thank you and Please."
Dad say's there's lots of time
for me to learn these things and
he never does get mad when
I track mud in all the rooms.

He say's I'm just a kid
and I meant no harm
when I wrote on the walls and
dumped my toys in the yard.
Mom made me pick them up and
even made me clean the walls.

I think Dad is right and
I shouldn't work so hard.
Mom makes me clean my room
and pick up all my toys.

My Dad hates to see me spanked,
but my Mom sure don't mind.
She says it's good for me,
it will teach me wrong from right.

My Mom and Dad are friends.
They don't fight or anything.
The only time they disagree
is on what they think is good for me.

Like two forces in the universe
Destined to meet
You blew into my life
Knocked me off my feet
Conformed my direction
To meet your path
And wormed your way into my heart
You have become the stone
On which I sharpen my tongue
The door on which my troubles are hung
The voice that makes my smile comes alive
Restoring my emotions
Provided me a shoulder to cry
You are the rhythm that drums in my heart
The one from which I don’t want to part
There is one truth my lips may hide
But through layers of masking
My heart can’t deny
What it is I’ve hidden behind my smile
Truth is, I’ve always loved you
And managed to hide it, all this time
