Incredibly, Undeniably True

Standard

All I can say with every fiber of my being

From the depths of my soul

And while I’m not ready to say it to you, it’s true

I’m falling madly, deeply in love with you

Upon this I dwell

You have cast a spell

Bewitched my mind

Captivated my soul

And stolen my heart

It’s yours to keep now

And keep safe for me

As our lives intertwine majestically

You make me feel

Like anything is possible

And one day I will tell you everything

How you make my heart sing

And just know this is true

You’re the only man for me

And I cannot wait to see you

Until then it’s little messages here and there

That I read over and over

I will declare soon to you and they are incredibly, undeniably true

These three words…

I love you

My prince

Standard

A chariot (your car) awaits as I step out the door

You open my door, make sure I have my seatbelt and off we go

You drive slowly, carefully through the snow

We head to dinner and a movie now

I’m sitting in your car wondering how

How did I get so lucky with a man like you?

A man that is kind, understanding, caring and makes me dreams come true

The day is effortless, the day is fun

We laugh and joke until the day is done

When we saw the movie you held my hand

And stroked my finger gently

It felt like heaven please help me

To understand this

How after all this searching and hoping we shared a goodnight kiss

I stepped out of you car and realized this

I am your princess and you are my prince

You care for me in every way

In your arms I’ll forever stay

Until the next time we meet once more

I can only imagine what life has in store for two people falling head over heels

I hope you sleep well and I will too

And one day all our dreams will come true

Because when I’m near you, it’s a Fairytale

Standard

Holding your hand as the piano plays

Has my world in a daze

We then walk through the world together

Braving the chilly, windy weather

We talking openly about how we feel

Slowly but surely it feels real

At the end of the night I would be remiss

If I do not mention our passionate kiss

Then you drove away and I stood, headed inside

But everything I could ever need to heal my heart and love again

Only you can provide

Your smile melts me heart

My brain is torn apart with thought

I don’t mind feeling like I’m in a dream

Because when I’m near you, it’s a fairytale

I’m going to bottle up every moment we spend together

And when I have a storm to weather

I know in my heart of hearts

You are there for me

Two Times Goodnight

Standard

Before my dreams take flight
I put on my comfy pajamas and say goodnight
Then I ponder over my journal
Fragments in my mind
Behind all my emotions are
Fluttering eyes shutting, too tired to compose
I sigh
I come out again
Sip some water,
And then say goodnight again
It’s my evening ritual
To ensure that I say it
That they know I love them
That I know they are okay
That I know everyone has everything they need
That I see them all smile and rejoice that sleep is coming
That I know my mind can drift into slumber
Not once, But two times goodnight

Silhouette

Standard

Cold winter shivers
Heat radiated within my soul,
Soul collided with millions of breaths
Mind racing
Heart Pounded
We inched closer

As our lips met
The moon cast a silhouette
A shallow attempt, a deeper breath
Coming up for air your beautiful eyes glisten
I listen
Wind blowing my hair
You push it gently out of my face

As we unite for one last kiss goodnight
The barrier between my heart and yours opens
Words crumble from my mouth
We don’t need them for right now
Holding your shocks my senses
No more needed defenses
I can hardly believe this moment
A warm glow ignites my entire being
How lovely is the night…

Dreams. They Never Retire.

Standard

Dreams. Some of us have them. Some of us do not. Sometimes. All the time. Somewhere and everywhere. There are sometimes built over time with posters in bed rooms, movies running in our minds, and hope in our hearts. As with some movies, these can take unexpected and sometimes unfortunate turns. Because sometimes we get sick. We forfeit the championship game before the try-outs even start. We hang up our soccer shoes and remember things like the nick names we got while we attempted to fulfill them. Bruiser was my nickname and a part of my dream. Soccer was my sport, defense was my position. Then after eighth grade I got sick, and sophomore year called for no more P.E. period for me. Funny how some dreams bring other ones into light. The dream to create. Write. Compose. To be part of something bigger than yourself. To change views. How to be humble. My junior year I stepped into this new world and new dreams were pressed on fast forward. Dreams. You never really forget your dreams. To be a writer, runner, and Lover. They stay with you as you complete your morning jog, your bacon cheese burger, your chores, your romantic dinner, your fight with your roommate. As much as you try to alienate yourself from them. They call to you. To be social was another dream I never fully held on to but my bubbly personality came through and I have wonderful friends. Love, it seemed to always be slipping from my grasp when finally it seemed it had never existed. Perhaps this is the year. Now on the in-betweens, I’m trying to envision new dreams. Not to replace old ones. To be a smile now. You see funny thing about dreams. They never retire.
