    I was afraid to think
    it could happen again
    that I would actually
    find a man among men
    Someone who would truly see
    me and love me any way
    Not just for a moment, nor a
    season, but forever and a day
    Someone who appears before my
    eyes, filtering my view
    so now what was once ordinary
    I now see...anew...through you
    The sun is now an orb of fire
    igniting me, giving me energy
    throughout my day, it is now
    a force that surges within me
    On cloudy days, the clouds
    buffer my mind like pillows
    cascading down to earth, lilting
    like leaves on weeping willows
    When it snows, the flurries
    are but kisses on my cheek
    so sweet they make me swoon
    as the thoughts make me meek
    The moon becomes a candle
    under which we melt into one
    another's souls, forming an infinite
    bond, God's will be done
    I was afraid to think, but not
    afraid to hope, and so...
    hope turned into love beyond which
    I ever thought I'd come to know

    I Smiled ...
    from the first line to the last, it shines a light on "hope" ...what a beautiful piece. And it also lets us know that...
    ..."When love calls, we better answer. Watz, be happy and take that love to greater "heights" ...and love on.
    :hearts2: :love: :hearts2:
    pssst..to see/feel/hear so much love from the heart of others...
    ...warms this heart of mines. ​

    Introspective flow...
    You couldn't be closer to the truth...
    because beyond fear...
    lies all of the things we dream of...
    but anything worth fighting for
    is worth fighting fear for

    Fear is always the biggest
    obstacle...

    Wonderful flow!

    It's that vulnerability, that's so scary, true. But beyond that looms so many possibilities. Thank you deepy for your words of kindness.
    Sometimes we've just got to get over ourselves to move forward infomoetry. Thank you poet.
    "Fear is always the biggest obstacle." I agree with that statement sage. Thank you for your words of support sis.
