peace

every quiet day
spent with you
is a comforting balm
to my soul
calm mornings
easy afternoons
warm evenings
and I am nearly wordless
not because
my mind is tangled
more that
my mind is soothed
and stilled
and gentled
and smiles are hard to write

weekend

19-IMG_3526-001the world
softly focused
today
gently soothing
today
a haze
in my gaze
relaxation
observation
with a sparkle
and a smile
and a glint
in my eye
every time
you pass by
steal a kiss
and caress
stroke your hair
make a mess
fingers linked
grin reflected
cheeky laugh
now infected
you and me
me and you
weekend
smooth blend

a year

a year passed
since the end
of the end
much has changed
three hundred
and sixty six
days passed
since that painful
limbo finally ceased
I was free
to live
to be alone
to be horribly alone
but unbound
unstuck
free
to be me
be happy
find my way
discover my passions
and heal
make mistakes
be foolish
but heal
and now
my warping mind
strains at the concept
of how different life is
how different I am
and you
my love
my soft place
my warm embrace
my loving smile
and giving heart
you’re here
what a difference
a year makes

An Answer

discombobulated
by my own blog
discomblogulated
and very nearly
speechless

and conscious of the watchers
wondering what I will say
I babble like a fool
and stumble over
words

I dare to dream
of you and I
and happy ever after

I dare to dream
of obstacles
removed from our way

I dare to dream
of a life with you
filled with loving and laughter

you are my hero
my knight in shining armour
my love, my sweet, my honey, my light
my sense of direction
my heart’s desire
my purpose
my everything

so rise up from your knee
and hold me tight
and let me
whisper
into
your
ear
