All for the best

The truth that hid within your eyes
was clear to all, but I was blind.
Searching inside for reasons why,
you would hurt those that treat you kind.

Together we both learned to fly,
a perfect fit, unique design.
I thought this love would never die,
but somehow feelings just declined.

You turned so cold as time sped by,
emotionless, and so confined.
It felt like winter in July,
as happy times tumbled behind.

Picked up my head then held it high,
synching my heart, body, and mind.
Let past hurts leave, I said good bye,
removing doubts, gaining self pride.

Push myself hard for one more try,
watching as links swiftly align.
Wishes flutter up to the sky,
connections appear well defined.

I pray that all your hopes comply,
knowing my path will be divine.
Powerful source always supplies,
my needs all met, all wants I find.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. I have plenty of experience with the first three stanzas, but the message of last three has always been so difficult for me to implement. Self-esteem issues, loneliness and desperation cause some people to hang onto really bad relationships for way too long. I think I’m just a slow learner, apparently. πŸ™‚ Anyway, this is beautiful writing, Grace. Heart-felt and meaningful. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much. I completely agree with it being so difficult to move on but it is also a very essential for obtaining fulfillment. At some point we have to put happiness and self love first. Happiness is in the horizon, my friend. Much love to you.πŸ’•

  2. i love the power in your poem facing sadness and defeat but persevering to the other side Grace. beautiful as always. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸ™
