"A Realization"

Looking up
My eyes are greeted by Carolina blue sky
As my thoughts turn to you
I let out a contented sigh

I am not sure what exactly
It is that you see in me
All I know is I love you today
Forever, always…an eternity

People question my faith
How is that I just know?
Well…I’ll tell you a secret
I really don’t…I am just letting this love flow

Years of heartache
Have taken their toll on this heart
Now it’s time for me
To make my mark…focus on a brand new start

You are the one I want by my side
The one I want to share with all my tomorrows
Never do I want us to part
For then our lives would be full of sorrows

I know that our age difference is crazy
That people will stop and stare
But I must say that
I really in truly simply do not care

Your heart and soul
Match mine in every single way
God gave you to me
That is something I shall never throw away

I always thought love was not for me
That it was something that was a dream
It was always just out of my grasp
Or perhaps that’s just how it seemed

But then one day
Suddenly clear out of the blue
My life was forever changed
The day that I met and fell in love with you

Once I was lost
I was scared and alone
Now my heart and soul are happy
I finally feel like I have a home

That safe heaven is in your arms
I think we are destined…though fragile as we may be
Please whatever you do…do not leave
I’ll wait for you…please wait for me

But if you must go
Don’t break my heart slow
Just be honest and straight with me
And then just simply go

But do not look back
Unless you want to see me cry
I don’t know where this will lead
But I’m willing to try

I’ve never loved another
The way that I love you
Please believe what I say
It’s all so very true

One day this will all make sense
The pieces will come together
But no matter what happens
You will have a piece of my heart…always and forever

Oh Amy ... it's so wonderful to have you home and be able to read you again. Such a wonderful tribute to love and all that it entails ... anticipation, trepidation and yet filled with such longing and desire. Beautifully written Amy, it's great to see you here!  

Best wishes,
latin passion

Your words flowed and spoke from your heart. So beautifully written - lucky person, hope they don't let go. LP

Day in Day out...My love for you grows.
Without you, my life would be empty. So I hold my mustard seed of faith in us.

to be with you...
I've tried to hide my passion,
but it's just no use...
piece by piece I lose it
when you walk in the room...

Age,race, religion, gender,....
none of these things matter..
true love builds bridges across distances.
Beautiful, sincere poem Amy-girl,
nice to see your name here, for however long you can stay.

you speak to me in riddles
and you speak to me in rhymes
my body aches to breathe your breath
your words keep me alive

Glad to share that sky with you   and glad you are sharing with us here again...even if it is temporary.

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
