a day

what a difference a day makes

it was just day three years ago

that changed my life’s course

a quick glance at the bar, a

simple hello, nice to meet you

and nothing would ever be the

same...i would never look at a

woman the same, i would never

feel the same for my husband

the end result would be the

constant longing for you in my

life. all it took was a day for me

to go from a life of comfort and

security to one of constant

question and pain and sadness

all the days leading up to you

and me and us the impossibility of

it all what a difference a day makes.

sometimes love happens

when we are not ready

when life is a mess and

you think nothing is

possible, sometimes

love happens. it doesn’t

wait for your head to

catch up with your

heart it makes its

surprise entrance

at the most

inconvenient of

times and your

left with all the

pain and confusion

her voice sang

to my soul, my

heart burst with

every note. she

lay her head on

my chest, her skin

touching mine. and

i was home, finally

a place of warmth,

of peace. to feel all

at once, free and

alive for the first

time. it shook me

so i could barely

move, for fear it

would leave me

once again alone.

my love

the way i see you,

it’s the beauty in

your heart, the way

you share it with the

world. it’s your words

and how you live them.

it’s your song and how

you sing it. how it opens

up my heart, and mind.

the love you gave to me

how it healed my soul,

made me feel worthy

again and full of hope.

it’s how you listen to

my words and read

them into life, eternal.

it’s your exuberance,

a joy for living, a kind

of blind faith in life, that

keeps me coming back

to you. comparing all

others to what ultimately

will always be my love

for just you.
