If loving you meant I had to always give you my all
then my love will never be enough to satisfy you,
and if being with you meant I had to be something I’m not
then the love we share is not love at all.
Love is a word so often used but often misconstrued.
It shines bright and its rays can feel warm and radiating
but if its not mutual and respectful
those rays can be overwhelming and its brightness can be blinding.
Does love really last a lifetime
or rather for only a chapter in your life,
and we revisit on occasions when we reminisce on who we once were.
Is love a reflection of who we are at the moment
and that love can change at anytime?
Are we bound to always seek in others what we can search within ourselves?
Or is our past relationships merely sign posts to signal future partners
where we’ve been hurt or found joy.
How could I express my words of hope to you
when inside my short-comings yell out loud ,
and my hands stiffen as I try to comfort you.
How could I help you
When I haven’t even tried to help myself.

Eyes that penetrate.
Eyes that pierce.
Eyes that glow
and eyes that understand both pain and joy.
Eyes that radiate with warmth
and those that glower with coldness.
Eyes that are wise
and eyes bearing hardships.
Eyes can tell us a lot about someone
Whether it’s their health, feelings or state of mind.
They narrate a story all in their own way.
the sky is as boundless as the ocean is wide,
like your warm smile and hearty laugh.
Isn’t pretty when it rains
the earth is showered with grace and mercy,
and when it shines
she glows and is giddy with joy.
I am an enigma
come to close and I’ll run away,
but stray too far and I’ll forget you.
I am coveted and sought after.
I am ever-present in your mind and heart,
and take on many forms
such as your marriage, work, friends, alcohol,gambling and more.
I am your wishes and daydreams,
but I will only remain just a figment of your mind
unless you take a plunge and experience this for yourself.
In the beginning, Love was the password for all,
but it’s true meaning was understood only by some.
For the rest of us caught up in the game of Chaos called human emotions
basking in joy one moment and swimming in sorrow the next.
The truth is there’s no winners or losers
just trial and errors,
and lessons learned through different lifetimes.
In the end, Love is the password for all,
but it’s true meaning is only understood by some.
The pursuit of beauty especially on the surface level
is a mirage that continually makes a fool of us all.
If I say I love you for your beauty,
because there’s none like you
and I see that only on the surface,
then I have cheated both you and myself.
I cheat myself because I was shallow and went for the low hanging fruit.
I cheat you because I failed to see the depths of your true beauty.
A heart so rich and a smile so wide,
a woman with so much knowledge
and a soul that never ages.

I admire your strength and tenacity.
A testament to your will,
and a reward for your open heart and faith.
If grace and elegance could be personified
I wouldn’t need to look far,
because I see it right before me.
Your strength gives me courage,
and I’m grateful for it,
as I stand next to you as your pillar
as you go and conquer the world.
Time waits for no one
so let me roam your heart
and set your trouble mind at ease
think of those before me as only a lesson
and I’ll show you what real love really feels like.
