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
