Common Path

I look at you,
you look at me,
no longer two,
finally free.
We share a view,
and hold the key,
no longer blue,
both our eyes see.
A love so true,
highest degree,
made to pursue,

You looked at me,
I looked at you,
finally free,
no longer two.
Holding the key,
to a shared view,
eyes clear to see,
no longer blue.
Highest degree,
a love so true,
we will pursue.

Your hug on a cold winter night,
warms my soul up,
makes my eyes shine,
offers secure,
cozy delight,
fits flawlessly, perfect design.

You ease my fears,
obstacles clear,
wishes appear,
when you are near.

Your steady breath relaxes me,
rhythmic patterns,
puts me to sleep,
grateful to be,
basking in peace,
pure fulfillment that runs so deep.

You show you care,
by being there,
a knowing stare,
that makes hearts dare.

Your essence will outlive your stay,
so “very strong”,
grows everyday,
cures every wrong,
with love and grace,
constantly in my heart always.

You make life right,
extend pure light,
provide insight,
sparkling bright.

What Dreams May Come

Our sprouted seeds, followed the cloak,
transforming all your hopes to smoke.
Dark tears you cried, created life,
the art you made expressed your strife.

The cloak came back, this time for me,
breaking you down, bruising your knees.
Grief filled your heart, pushed till you fell,
I fought to bring you back from hell.

You would not budge, you lost your way,
but snapped right back fearing I’d stay.
We dried our tears, ran from that place,
escaped the pit, to follow grace.

United with all we thought lost,
love does prevail as heartbeats cross.
Another chance to be reborn,
a brand new slate without a scorn.

Decide to give it one more try,
right from the start, live side by side.
This time without a space to fail,
we wave good bye as our ship sails.

True love could never be erased,
instead it grows a bit each day.
Painting fine pictures that come true,
made to shine bright for me and you.

Chance Encounter

I watched her from afar,
her hair was made of gold,
it shined like a bright star,
and stole my hearts control.

He watched me from afar,
my hair was such a mess.
I tried to hide my scars,
strolled though I needed rest.

I fell under her spell,
her essence left a mark.
Much more than a fine shell,
she held an inner spark.

I felt so insecure,
by what his eyes must see.
Tried hard to feel assured,
let go and “Let it be.”

At last, I took a step,
guided by destiny.
Hoping she could be swept,
by my pure honesty.

My heartbeat seemed to grow,
as he slowly came near.
But with the first hello,
our souls traversed through years.

Flooded by memories,
of times that had stood still.
Skipping through reveries,
and climbing steep dark hills.

While holding a tight stare,
all else soon disappeared.
Nothing was ever there,
everything started here.

Inhaling each breath you exhale,
knowing our love could never fail.
A part of me lives in your eyes,
your presence makes my spirit fly.

We met each other magically,
to change our lives so drastically.
Enhanced by our diversity,
our love extends eternally.

Swimming through life, collecting facts,
while gaining proof that pile in stacks.
Flying in our own hourglass,
forming fond memories as they pass.

Feeling you there all day and night
allows me to shine a bright light.
My constant person, through all time,
a best friend, spouse, partner in crime.

Another anniversary
brings warm and happy melodies.
A perfect love, our hearts combined,
we walk through time, our hands entwined.

Our bond, difficult to describe,
a cure for love that god prescribed.
Euphoric bliss, stronger each day,
enhancing life in every way.
