Imperfectly Perfect With You

My heart in your hands
the weight of the world on your shoulders
you bear the burden of all before you

you tackle it with grace and strength
you set forth to conquer the demons
change the perception, the course of the world

you have the power
in the subtle things you do
in the words that you speak
in the actions that you take

you bring forth a comfort and calmness
you are unique unto yourself

you share your dreams, haunts, desires, and fears
you are all I could have imagined
and more than I could fathom

you are the sun
the moon
the stars
and galaxies
combined in one
fantastical expression of God

In my heart you can find
all that I am
and all that I have
aligned imperfectly perfect with you

Remember…

When thoughts from your past
float through the atmosphere,
invading the quiet crevices of your mind,
they tend to leave little remnants behind.

Unbeknownst to you, they seep on through
taking hold at the most inopportune times,
a nagging reminder that you must address,
unless you choose to acquiesce.

Why is it within moments of pure joy and bliss
fear, worry, doubt, and unworthiness set in
What fans the burning fires of the flames
Is it within ourselves that we should lay blame

Self sabotage, wreaking havoc
lay it all to rest
snuff out the burning ember,
and please try to remember…

You deserve this happiness

Happy Valentines Day 

 

In the simple random moments quietly together as we’re cooking a meal together, or between the kids talking in the background, we share these times and I feel that deep connection with you.  

It’s not the earth shattering kind of stories people tell the tales of but it is our story and it shakes my soul to the core. Because in those times together with you, in your arms, my dreams become reality. It’s not perfection but it’s perfectly our moment.  ❤️ 

It’s a snow day

Snow is falling, slowly, steady, heavy, wet.

Not much fun, but oh so pretty to look at

In the midst of blowing flakes, a moment of regret

to be young again, with no care in the world

the dreams of childhood marred by responsibilities

the view is beautiful, snow covered limbs, pristine and clean

can turn from natures painted canvas to heavy loads to bear

bending, turning, swaying, cracking under pressure

but oh so pretty to look at.

A moment captured in time

interpreted many way by the eyes who view it

how do you choose to see it?

a view of peace and tranquility of natures masterpiece

or danger and fear the possibilities of trouble lurking in the air

I think we all wish to see peace and often do

until that moment, reality, creeps up and takes hold

ahh to have a snow day as days gone by

when times were different and life wasn’t so serious

I think it’s time I go jump in the snow

maybe the weight won’t be so hard to bear

once you let it go

Contentment

I love watching you sleep
thinking the things that you might think
swirling around in your mind countless times

The crook of your lip arching slightly upward
the wrinkles around your nose paint a picture of peace
the lines framing your eyes like soft brush strokes of a masterpiece

I find joy and peace within your presence
as the moonlight cascades across your frame, you remain in quiet slumber
I dare not to wake you but I can’t resist the temptation you present

Warmth from you radiates across the cool bed sheets
Longing to wrap myself within your embrace, I gently slip into your waiting arms
nuzzled up against your chest, your grasp tightens with a gentleness only you possess.

Blazing inferno

Sitting quietly, sipping a cappuccino, Johnny Cash’s One Piece at a Time playing in the background

I’m gazing out the window, looking for a sign of what to write.

Inspire me! I yell under my breath.

Where is that spark I’m needing to ignite this fire?

It’s there, I know it, hiding quietly behind its cloak of secrecy, toying with my psyche

The days go by in a blur, one melding into the next

How did I get here?

How did I come this far?

Snap out of it! The headlights scream back at me, as they flicker in the dreary light , zooming past one by one

Then a lull and an eerie bleakness permiates the atmosphere

Green

Yellow

Red

Flashes in the distance, as we follow with intent.

The rush of wind whipping across wheels, sloshing through the rain, spraying with delight across the pavement

Where are we going?

How long till we get there?

Time keeps rushing, faster, faster, faster

Take a moment and surrender

Before we know it time has passed us by, and we’ll soon ask again…

How did we get here?

Life is not worth living, if we are living it in a blur.

Let it all sink in

Bask in the delight that surrounds us daily.

Embrace the little sparks that appear along the way, and turn them into that blazing inferno!

When my curves meet your angels

When my curves meet your angles,
melding seamlessly together,
I feel all is right with the world Continue reading
