#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Giving up is an outdated concept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.

Sometimes, You Get Lost Along The Way

pexels-photo-248159

Trying to find my way

Sometimes, you get lost along the way

*

From the first light of day, crafting experiences

No word count when you don’t know what to say

There are times you stumble

There are times you fall

Even if you stagger to your feet

You know you have to carry on

*

Sometimes, you get lost along the way

Trying to find my way

*

Internal retreat

Closing the shudders

In the silence, I just think

But thoughts choose to avoid me

Internal, I fall deeper

Light a candle to light up the void

*

Trying to find my way

Sometimes, you get lost along the way

*

What can you do?

Say hush to those voices that try to fool you

Picking up my feet again

The lights are dimming on another day

*

Trying to find my way

If At First You Don’t Suceed…Yeah You Know

Almost in the palm of my hand

It slips through my fingers like grains of sand

Yet I give it the old college try without a degree 

Try, try, try, until you suceed

Positive thoughts and affirmations I speak

Reading the scriptures for a spiritual tweak

Hop on one leg and stand on one hand

Pilates, yoga and doing the best that I can

Brain power churning 

Will power burning 

The little train that could

Persevering as I should

Turning that frown upside down

Out smiling most mimes and clowns

“Oh, hello there!” Now go on and have a good day

Neither let man, beast or silly things stand in your way

Poignant Sky

pexels-photo-405340

Life can take a toll

Even if you don’t want to pay

Collecting change and waiting

Rearrange the pieces

But the centerpiece remains in place

Not looking towards the sky

Peering deep into my heart

To find a resurrected God

Always there

My soles press on step by step

Despite exhausted legs

Hope can be a stubborn mule

Refusing to be moved

All the while infusing the spirit

I’m not waiting the sun to shine

Permanent light is inside

The sky is holding back the tears

Though it wants to cry

I just keep on walking

As the clouds make their way by
