    Seemed like the ordinary,
    at least when I rose,
    Said a prayer,
    ate some food,
    my routine, I suppose
    Then came a change,
    a simple extra step,
    an encounter that my heart
    has forever kept
    There, a beautiful being
    caught up in my sight,
    a moment indescribable
    Indelibly right
    Love had a beautiful voice,
    as lovely as its name
    And since meeting love that day,
    I've never been the same.
    If you've never been in love,
    This I say to you,
    You have never truly lived,
    'til it lives in you.

    I'll say amen to that. Hurts when it leaves, but oh when it is there, nothing else can compare. You captured this feeling, truly.

    How did I miss this one? Very nice jazzy. Lets bring this up to the top for all to see. I'm sure people missed this as I did. Beautiful poem because that has happened to me also. Taking an alternative route brings a much needed change. :lips:
