His queen

I never thought one day I’d be someone’s queen and smile so brightly 

for this day is the best day of my life. 

To dress up in the most precious gown to me and feel so amazing that simple words can’t explain how I felt that day. 

You looked at me with so much love that I didn’t think I could receive and keep inside of me when times get tough and I need so badly to cling to that love. 

I know that you love me and that this picture will always be one of your favorites and I hope one day to capture one of me looking at you as you smile so brightly.

Daily Prompt: Elegant

She floated by me with so much grace

you would think she had been a ballerina.

So much confidants radiating off of her as

she walks on and smiles at one of her friends.

As they laugh about something and continue to talk

her friend gets a phone call and says she has to go.

As she turns to wave to her friend

She sees me looking and, smiles so brightly then walks

right towards me and says hi.

From that moment I knew I was in trouble.

As time goes by I fall for her not knowing how

this could end.

But her smile is worth all the pain I could have to bear

if this doesn’t work out in the end.

Daily Prompt: Unstoppable

The words flowing through my mind are

unstoppable.

And as my pen hits the paper what needs to come out is unstoppable and unbreakable.

It all just seems  so amazing that I can’t stop smiling and the feeling is contagious.

Each word touching one person leads to another until there is no one left to reach.

The words continue to circulate through your mind and your phone as you share it with one another.

And then you realize no amount of failure will stop you from writing or doing what you love.

For the feeling that is burning through your heart, mind and body is unstoppable.

And amazingly you become greater than you ever thought you could because one person believed in your talent.

And now you couldn’t stop doing what you love even if you wanted too.

Daily Prompt: Pleasure

It is my pleasure to know you

with  lips that remind me of Cherries that are so delicious that I just want a taste.

Your voice is smooth like ice cream and only cold when you’re in a bad mood.

Your eyes are nice brown that melts me like chocolate on a hot day or when you pop a piece in your mouth and it melts instantly.

wrapped in your arms is my favorite place to be.

When I’m with you I’m me, comfortable and confident and always with a smile on my face.

It will always be my pleasure to know you, to love you and to always waking up knowing your mine forever.

Dreams

We all have dreams when we go to sleep at night

Sometimes were present during the dreams.

Other times we just wake up nicely refreshed from

A good night of sleep.

But not all dreams happen when your sleeping, some

Dreams are things you dreamed of as a child.

Your dream to become a writer, a dancer, a teacher etc.

There’s no one that can stop you from completing this dream

But you and,that’s only once you’ve failed miserably  and decide you’re done.

Or maybe your dream changes and,you fall back into love with a hobby you

Didn’t think would turn your life around for good.

Sometimes dreams can surprise you and, show you who you really are.

Why the Sun is

Splendid a thousand times over

It’s beautifully bright and it has the ability to

Create sunsets and sunrise.

And the ability to take your breath away, and

When the red sun comes around everyone wants

To stay up or get up early to see it and if lucky take a picture of it.

The sun is something we learn about and study for we need to understand it.

The sun can be great help when taking a photo and you want that natural lighting.

It brings light into your dark mornings of getting up early for

Work or it just shines into your room when you needed some light in your life.

The sun is splendid and just something to look forward to every day and always puts a smile on my face.

I’ll keep enjoying the sun a thousand times more each and everyday, week and month.

A stroll through life with my mother!

My mother has been there for me

Every step I take in life.

From the day I was born to my first word, step.

And as I started to take my first stroll through

Life my mother was there, with great nurture.

My mother taught me to trust myself and know I am

Beautiful because God made me this way and to be strong.

And  to embrace who I am.

Even though I have strolled through my childhood, teenage years and I am now an adult.

I still enjoy strolling through my memories and present moments with my mother.

I am grateful to be able to take strolls through life with her, even shared those strolls with my sisters.

I will not ever stop wanting to share these strolls with my mother, for she brings great joy to me.

Love you Mom.

Happy mother’s day to everyone!

Daily Prompt:Beach

Dear Beach,

It’s been  a long time since I’ve seen you

But I still remember you from when I was

A child and you were so big with your tan sand

And the blue clear water of the ocean.

I knew your ocean was safe from sharks with the big

Rocks separating us from the danger.

But soon another danger came lurking around

In the form of something small and it sting you

And that sting hurt so bad, and so because of multiple

Jellyfish stings, you suffered  my beach and you were closed.

And I never saw you again,and I  was so sad for I loved swimming in your water and playing in your sand.

I hope your open again and many people are enjoying you

Like I used to as a young girl.

Sincerely,

Your old friend

I’m just me and your just you!

I see you and your smile captures me

And I fall just a little bit inside.

But I take my time to figure you out

So I truly know who’ve I’ve fallen for.

Things  start out like a dream that I’ve

Been able to live in everyday, oh lucky me.

Soon reality kicks in and everything takes a

rough spin and nothing seems to be able to stop

This pain  that has no end.

And when it ends, sadness is over flowing but

Soon your words left behind give me strength.

To go on with a smile on my face and a laugh

Waiting to escape my lips again one day.

But today is bright, and I owe it all to the time

I had with you.
