#ThoughtfulThursday: Time

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
― Henry Van Dyke

#MondayThoughts: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

“I do not want my yesterdays to overflow with regrets.”

Across my years of living, I have been blessed to know some wonderful people, have some great experiences with my family and loved ones, have had toys and other things that have brought hours of entertainment, had good jobs and overall some unforgettable moments. I know for a fact that there are some people and things that I took for granted and didn’t appreciate as well as I should have. Isn’t it amazing how we realize this after the fact?

I have experienced the lost of family members either through death, losing contact or the direction of life taken. I have seen things which I need today in which I had an abundance of years ago slip away. Moments that I wanted to last forever pass by with time. Is time a great teacher of appreciation?

There are experiences that happen in your life that change you forever and I do mean they leave such a lasting impression that you are never the same. You cannot go back to who you were before because and perhaps, you weren’t really being you. When you come into this awareness of what you really have in life and you can begin to distinguish between what is really important and what is not, you develop a deeper sense of gratitude for life.

In these days I am learning what is really important and how much those closest to me truly mean to me. Life’s lessons never cease, from the cradle to the grave we are learning and hopefully taking those lessons to heart.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#RomanticTuesday: Until….

I love the story we are living

This story of love we are writing together

With each passing day we are growing closer

With each passing day I cannot imagine life and not being by your side

Your hand fits perfectly clasped with mine

Until the end of time

You are my sun at its highest peak

The light that guides my passage back home

Although the earth may beg to differ

You are never far

Because my heart beats stronger with you within it

You are never far

Thoughts of you swim deep in my mind

Your heart fits perfectly merged with mine

Until the end of time

I love this story of love we are writing together

It has no ending

We will live it out forever

#RomanticTuesday: Our Time, Our Space

pexels-photo-1907043

Staring at an empty pillow

Imagining your face

Imagining my fingers tracing

your features

A smile comes to my face

I count the stars in my mind

Like I count the stars in your eyes

Falling asleep peacefully

with you on my mind

Dreaming that my head is on your chest

And the sound of your heartbeat

gives me peace to rest

Dreaming it’s just the two of us

Our time, our space

I open my eyes briefly

The pillow is still empty

For now our faces

Are found in different spaces

But love is filling the empty space

between us

And soon we will be face to face

Tracing one another’s facial features

As we fall asleep and into a dream

Where we will meet again

And the sound of our hearts beating together

Will echo loudly

Our time, our space
