You Had Me At Hello…

I heard your whispers when you wished for me,
So I went to God on your behalf.
Although I didn’t have a name or a face to match with the voice,
I pleaded with him to give us a chance.
I explained to Him your need for my love and that I’d heard you say so yourself,
And I knew in that instant you could have only meant me,
that I was sure you couldn’t be speaking of anyone else.
He confessed to me that we were indeed created for each other,
but our union would not come without work.
He told me the task before me may not be easy,
and I definitely would not be your first.
He counseled me on how to strudge through the storms,
and when needed, how to carry us through unscathed.
Told me He’d waited for the right moment,
but my heart told Him I was ready,
and next was the blessing He gave.
He fashioned my soul’s song to match yours,
and with that, He sent me down to Earth.
An angel with a royal inheritance
seeking her king, Oh! What a blessed search.
My arrival didn’t come without trials,
I was tested and even experienced some pain.
I was armed with the foresight to know though,
that my reward would be priceless once you came.
I met handsome men, even rich ones,
some intelligent and debonair,
but as soon as they opened their mouths I dismissed them.
THAT voice just wasnt there.
When I saw YOU though, my spirit danced,
and my heart seemed to skip a beat.
I tried to gather myself,
but I’ll admit it,
I held my breath and waited for you to speak.
As I look in your eyes in this moment I can tell you,
there’s more power in your voice than you know.
Your declarations of love today don’t go unnoticed,
but you had me at “Hello.”

We All Have One…

I know we all have that one person that we count our should’ve, would’ve, could’ve moments with. I dare somebody call me a lie! Lol We’re taught that love is one of those things that transcends time, space, & distance. I’ve thought to myself on more than one occasion if it could be true for MY “love”. Anyway, I was just thinking back, thought I’d share…

“The One That Got Away”

I watched him pass me by in another life.
Watched my present reality shut its door in my face and he quickly became my past.
What could I have done to make it last?
That was a question that lingered in my day to day, which turned to my week to week, month to month and before I looked up it was my year to year.
And I still missed him…
I could still feel his lips against mine, feels his hand in my hand,
which made it so much harder for me to understand how I left it all behind.
How could I have ever been so blind?
Clearly visually aware to everything but the bigger picture,
there was nothing anyone could say to get me to listen,
I thought I had it all figured out.
Now I know I took the wrong route.
Shacked up with the man who had it all at that particular time,
that glistened and shined,
that blew my back out but failed to make love to my mind.
Whose caress wasn’t as kind, embraces weren’t as sweet,
but I was already in way too deep.
He turned into a problem I had to keep.
I could only connect with the one I really wanted in my sleep.
In far away dreams that would reconnect us in every second of my present and allow me to erase our ugly past.
In quick instances of paradise that seemed to be over way too fast.
Captured in fleeting moments where I was able to catch up on all the things I really needed to say.
In scenarios that would reunite us in my today,
and not make me torture myself over the one that got away…
