    When you think of me,
    and I know you do,
    What type of hue
    colors your view?
    I hope the backdrop
    isn't just various shades of blue...

    When whatever we were supposed to be
    turns into whatever it was
    disappointment shouldn't consume because
    it didn't fully blossom, sadly, it rarely does
    Yes, hearts that used to be all aflutter
    alas, are no longer a buzz

    I know, I never would have known that about you,
    and you knowing that about me
    sometimes makes salutations blurt out uncomfortably
    but fortunately, or unfortunately
    Getting to know someone, means sharing some secrets
    and regretting some, inevitably

    Perhaps, when those thorny thoughts
    just won't leave us alone
    we'll consider each other to be, another road to the throne
    one step closer to the king or queen who is yet, unknown
    and learning even more about ourselves in this trek
    steadily approaching that love of our own

    So I breathe a deep sigh, remembering
    that life does keep moving, with us, or without
    so I try to purge any regret and self doubt
    More often than not, it just doesn't work out.
    But when it does, blessed, truly, are all roads
    that set our feet to journey to love devout

    If only we knew the "what if", the, "whys" ...but we don't.
    Cause surely, That's a part of life...a part of growth. We enjoy what we have, If and when we have it...and move through life with a smile.

    That was sweet nevar, so glad you're here to respond so. Thank you.
    Thank you for seeing beauty in this, and saying so 4everluv.
    Nothing is for certain, that's true. And those "ifs", those ifs can become stumbling blocks, if we allow them to be. Your support means a lot queent, thank you.

    Hi Sis :wave:
    wonderful flow
    One can't help but let the thoughts travel
    about the roads we once travel, and how
    each step that was taken, brought US a little
    Closer to knowing ourselves.
    And the journey do continues.


    Peace & Love
