It belonged to him

An intricate piece

Meant to be adored 

Maybe it wasn’t

What he was looking for

So he threw it away 

For something “better”

To each his own they say
Lying in the heap of discarded things 

It was picked up by another

Who took the time to look

In all the places 

Never explored

Somehow it became 

Even more beautiful than before 

Restored

His love will be rewarded

Forevermore

New Way

They took her for granted

So I can’t afford to do that 

I cherish every moment

Because I know we can’t get time back

They didn’t tell her that they loved her

So I do it twice as much

The scars they left behind

I kiss softly

Forcing them to fade away

She lost her smile

And I’m helping her find it

It’s about time she knew

Just how beautiful she is

One Year Later

A year ago I got down on one knee

At that moment the world faded

It was just me and you standing before me

I watched the tears fill your eyes

And also the wonder from the surprise 

I waited there in the sand 

Holding on to your hand 

Eternity passed as I looked to you

My heart beating hard in my chest 

At once all was well again, you said yes

A year later and I still find ways 

To love you more every single day

Am I Sure… 

I was asked if I was sure I wanted to marry her… 

​I am 100% sure that I want to get married. With her, life is better. Nothing is easy, I know that, but she makes things feel simpler than they’ve ever been. I want to get married because I want to be able to proclaim the love that I have for her and through the process I can validate my love to her in the best way (opinion). I heard someone said today that they didn’t want to have a wedding, they wanted to have a marriage. They were afraid that they would do so much in having a ceremony that would forever outweigh the rest of their lives. I’ve never had that fear and although I understood where she was coming from, I didn’t waiver. I don’t have to be afraid of what’s to come because in my heart I know that we will love each other. I can’t predict the future and I haven’t been a great believer in faith, but my heart tells me that this time, I’m right. She is the one. The one woman my mother approved on sight. I love her and always will.
