Friday Inspiration: Not Alone

Creator of the living

Above all things

Should I reach for the sky

I need not reach far

Because you are near

Always near

I am never alone

#RomanticTuesday: Eternal Hearts

couple-love-romantic-silhouette

I believe

Each time we touch

The reverberations

Will be felt for eternities

*

No matter how the world pulls

To keep us apart

Our love only strengthens

We are eternal hearts

Time plays its role

Shortening the moments

Lengthening the silence

The sighs we exhale

Breathe newer life into our love

Giving up is an outdated concept

Giving in more, to what we believe

That the creator of stars and all beautiful things

Has gifted us with this love

Its light, at times, blinding

But we always see what it all means

Intimate soul speak

We are One

Eternal hearts

Monday Thoughts: The Steps Given, The Steps Taken


You know your end goal. You know where you want to be and hope to achieve.  As we push towards our goal, we know there are steps that need to be taken to get us to success. The more you believe in what you want , the more  steps open that give you more options in helping you.

We come into awareness of these step because they relate directly to our goals and it feels like a little nudge in the right direction. These are the steps given. Now, what we do with those steps is an entirely different story. Do we take those necessary steps or do we hesitate, think twice and decide to follow our own logic?  These are the steps taken.  Maybe we think it may be too hard or too long. Maybe there is an easier route (we tell ourselves). Possibly we could be right but then again, is the easier way always the best way?

It may take a lot patience, courage and the willingness to persevere, but when we arrive at the point of achieving our end goal and seeing something we have strived for come to fruition, it can be a fulfilling experience an impetus for us with future goals.

The Mission 


Prim and proper

Poised and ready to shine 

On a heart stirring mission 

A declaration of affection 

Dressed in their best 

Stunning elegance 

Light awaiting to shine

In the eyes of gratitude

#RomanticTuesday: Sunsets Are The Least I Can Give

pexels-photo-412295

I sat out back

Holding the sun in place

Waiting for you to come home

So we could enjoy the sun setting

Together

*

I pinched myself

Yes, this is a living dream

Who am I?

Fortunate man

Fortunate one

When you found me, broken in some ways

You did not judge or turn in fear

You only accepted me

Sometimes flaws can be discriminating

Sometimes, they are beautiful

Thank you for accepting me

This broken man in a shell

With your love I have discovered pieces long lost

My soul exposes its nakedness, somehow, unafraid

Your gentle caring ways lift me

So with each opportunity I get

I hold the sun in place

Until you are home

Sunsets are the least I can give

For all you have done for me

The Effort Is Always There

pexels-photo-27853

Even if I fall short

The effort is always there

Staring at the glare from the streetlight

Home is not to far away

Twelve hour days

A hand full of hours at night

Dreams under my pillow keep me company

Hang my hopes on the moon until the morning

Was I a better man today?

Heart under review

Only God truly knows

Even if I fall short

The effort is always there
