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

Freedom

She gives me the freedom I need

To be me

She accepts what I am with love

She helps free the real me

The one I hide from 

Judging eyes 

The person I keep

Locked inside 

I never really knew

What it meant to be happy 

But now…

I can laugh and smile

Freely

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

Yo-yo Emotions 

Up and down they bounce

Pushed down by bad days 

Left to rise in good ones 

Makes me think of being young

No matter what my face says

I was happy once

I can’t take all the back and forth

I just want to live free

This constant change is too much strain 

Through it all I remain positive 

Even though today’s a low day

One day I’ll be happy again 

At least I know I’m not broken…

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.
