Our Story

 

this is our story,
the tangled tale we weave,
twisted with sweet subtlety
and you tell it,
oh so beautifully

the words spill,
you turning the ordinary
into the divine,
your patient hands
walking through mine
(please, please, tell me more)

I’ve memorized the details,
woven moments of taste and smell
that still linger,
hanging in the air,
carefully placed there
with old photographs
and recent delights,
our poem ongoing,
no where near complete
(but please, tell it again for me)

Dawn Will Break

IMG_9236

I watched you falling,
no wings to fly,
gravity pulling,
your eyes shut tight,
a monsoon of melancholy
within your somber heart,
secluded away in the quiet

and I just wanted you to know
that you’re never alone

when misty memories
weave inside your mind,
foggy fear and doubt
leaving no way out,
I’ll never leave you behind

let me take your hand,
and together,
we’ll wait
for the dawn to break

For Always

IMG_7204

There’s been too much
bittersweet,
our minds chasing problems
instead of holding on to each other

One day,
we’ll have time
to soak up the good,
moments spent loving
these hearts of ours
so concerned with comforting
We’ll watch suns set
and moons rise,
talk about all the good
in this darling life

Until then,
I’ll wish on stars and love songs,
while holding onto trust
and the sweet kiss of faith

And, we’ll burn bright,
you with me,
for always
