I Remember.

I remember the First time You smiled at Me
Such Wonder & Curiosity! I remember the Nights You tried to get me to Stay
For One more Kiss
One more Conversation
One More Day.

I Remember The nights You made me Scream Your Name
I remember the Urgency of your Touch.
Intentions strong & it was Never Enough
I Remember the Light in your Eyes! Baby, I Remember Every Time.
I Remember Butterflies
As I fell deep into your eyes,
I Remember
You slipped, Tripped
& Fell into Mine
I held onto your Curves & I found The Divine!

Do You..
Remember?
Midday kisses on the back of my neck?
Afternoon delights & hood Sunsets?
Your arms around me tightly promising you'd never forget? Knowing, Hoping it's not over yet.
I remember.

Art Imitates Life

Here we are.
Here we are as it has been forever
Nothing has changed
The lessons of life are all the same

Time is the only constant
& life is ever evolving
The oceans carry centuries
Dancing beneath the currents

Summer winds whisper
The memories of all things past
History repeats itself again & again
Yet the people never learn

Great stories have been told
& recycled since the beginning
Still we can't seem to
Figure this thing out

The blueprint has been made
& the model formed
Still we fight against destiny
To avoid our connectivity

What strength do we hold
If we never open our eyes?
Truly take in the beauty
That is this life?

All our stories lay within the pages of time
The storybook of human emotions and lies
Historians, painters, poets alike
Know one thing to be true, Art Imitates Life.

Cheers!

To all the lies you told me

& all the promises you broke

To all the tears I've cried

For all the letters you wrote

To all the "forevers"

& all the "soul mates!"

For making me love you

To believing in fate


For making me trust

To making me cry

For making me that girl

To leaving me with why

For us and our love

To breaking the tie

For me wanting to live

To me wanting to die


For asking me the question

To me screaming yes

For us and our dreams

To putting us to rest

For all of our past

To a future without me

For wherever life takes you

To my future wife-to-be


For the pain and the laughs

To the loss of the love

For the smiles and the tears

To the memories and the grudge

For truly taking a chance

To truly making a choice

For "What happens next?"

To giving me a voice


For all that has happened

To the pain that remains still

For nothing will be the same 

To what's meant to be... will 

For the best that's yet to come 

I say, Cheers! 

Goodbye and thank you

Forever, My Love.
