when you don’t want to open up and tell me what wrong. 

Your eyes always tell me the truth and even when you try to hide behind  the mess you make to cover up the pain. 

I always in the end can read it all on your face and when I confirm all that is wrong and work with you to fix it. 

You seem so surprised that I took the time to figure out what’s going on with you, the minute we became close and I got to know the real you. 

I was hooked and didn’t want to let go for you were a special gem to me and the light that came from you made the darkness in me disappear. 

You were a perfect beat for the song of my life and together we connected a song like no other and as we grew together the song begun to tell our story. 

A story I was sure would end up with a beautiful sunset and many morning waking up knowing we were not alone for we had each other.

I know

that this is the right move for me as I take a deep breath and let go completely.

I fall so fast the thrill of falling hasn’t felt this good in so long.

I have no doubt that everything will work out as I come down and finally hit the water.

coming up for air just feels so great and nothing is left holding me down.

As I float around in the water I feel so much better than I felt before.

This hot sunny day could only be enjoyed in the water and enjoying nature in all it’s beauty.

As I get out there you stand with a towel and smile on your face and I’ll admit this time you were right.

I so needed this after the week I had.

Am I

only as great as you make me lord.

I don’t tend to stick out for I am not sure I’m ready for all the attention lord.

I like the peace of not being someone everyone is looking too for answers and when everything is not calm.

To be thankful that you always here for me and when I feel like too much is being pushed on me your always there to take some of the burden off of me.

Putting you first is the best thing I can do in my life for you guide the way for me and when I come to you everything seems less stressful than if I relay only on myself.

Today will be a great day because you will be by my side every step of the way and I know nothing that will or can happen is too much for us to handle together.

My mind is clear and I take this time to just enjoy the little things in life that you have blessed me with and everything else will come when the time is right.

To you I say thanks for today is possible because of you.

surprising what one day can do for a person

the things that are holding me down have vanished.

The smile is back on their face and all the pain is being washed away by the rain and as the sun comes out today they have not even been so happy to wake up to this day.

The words are coming out clearer than before and no time is to be wasted as she moves for the door not looking back at all that has been left behind.

She knows that these trials are not fully gone and the next round will come and she will be ready and will try her best to remember she is not in this alone.

It maybe be silent now but the noise will come and as she gets lost in it, I just hope she looks around now and then and makes sure she still in a good place.

For only the next day will tell if things are getting on the right path and she will be stronger at the end.

She will leave all the old things behind and buy new things for she wants her emotions to be strong and in one piece as she makes this journey will fewer people than before.

But, she has to have faith that it will all work out in the end because, she knows herself more than anyone else possibly could.

from all the stress that is getting to me I just need to get away and just be relaxed with no overwhelming thought of what I didn’t get to or what I could have done better. 

I stand out here just trying to capture this peace I’m hoping to find when I’m away and enjoying the time I have off with no care in the world of the outside things. 

Just enjoying the quite and nature all around me as I know soon I will be sailing back into the port and be back in the reality I left behind.

Trying to get away


That day

was so peaceful and when the sunset it was a great part of our day that was so relaxing and breath-taking for me.

I know that you were smiling so big that day because this day was the one day we were both looking forward too.

It was a day that would change so much not just for us but, for everyone we know and as the day came down to an end we couldn’t help but feel so grateful to be together and happy at the same time.

That day!

heart is beating so slowly as I close my eyes

and let this feeling of calm wash right over me.

I feel the stress fade away from me and I wonder what could I have done differently and why do I feel like this path of difficulty is never-ending.

I know that things are not always in my control but in this moment I feel my eyes relaxing and the aches are releasing from every part of me as I breathe in and out.

I dare not over stress about the matters that fall in front of me as I listen to the noise around me and pinpoint the sound that is so sweet.

I don’t dare to open my eyes as I feel this moment will vanish the moment I take my eyes off of all that is going on around me.

Let me stay here just for a little while for the storm is not yet to arrive for another hour or too.
