To feel

Like it’s too soon to reach out to you again.

Even though being around you is like experiencing Christmas everyday.

Your words are as sweet as chocolate and every time you say something I melt a little more.

You’re always so cheerful and jolly like a good Christmas song.

Your like the warmth of a fire I just want to be near on a cold day.

Your like a fan on an overly hot day, keeping me cool as the temperature keeps going up.

Your my marshmallows in my hot chocolate making an already sweet drink sweeter.

Your a nice night on the town, an memory worth cherishing.

Nothing about you is forgettable and for that I am so grateful.

For I know like every season I look forward to see you and experience the changes that come my way.

You’ve always

Been my rock through these tough times.

Just one hug

Just one kiss

Just one look

And everything that seemed too much no longer matters.

For you know how to calm me down and when to get loud with me on the subject.

You listen and only once I’m done do you give me your opinion.

You try to be non-bias when I recap something for you.

For you always want to see the good in people and when it doesn’t work.

You drop the bullshit and move on.

Your always making sure everyone is good before you take care of yourself.

You will always be a part of my happiest moments.

For every begins and ends with you.

Oh how

You are always on my mind and always in my heart.

You are my guide through this all.

And lately I haven’t been my best and yet you have stayed by my side.

For you are my God and through it all I truly know I can overcome it all.

Especially when I am a mess and nothing seems to make sense but when I let go.

And wake up the next day you always deliver just what I need.

And for that I am so grateful and I know through the struggles.

You will be there and I accept the hard times because when it’s easy it always feels like something missing.

The struggle make somethings so clear and true.

And for that I am thankful and light right now as nothing holds me back.

You are

the only one I can’t seem to shake

The only one I can’t see doing anything mean.

The one who does good and stays focus on the things that matter.

And maybe I’m not used to that because I’ve let myself get distracted by everything that is not right.

And now I don’t know what to do with you because I’ve never been in this situation before.

For your different and your full of light and the darkness isn’t something that seems to be gaining on you.

And lately I’ve felt so angry and well the darkness has swallowed me whole and thinking of you.

Has slowly but surely brought me out and today I will do better for me and you.

Why is

It that the little bit you give me

Just isn’t enough and when you make me feel.

This way it’s more frustrating than pleasant.

Am I getting too much inside my head that I am missing what my heart is saying?

Will this struggle ever end?

Or will I have to say the words I’ve been trying to hold in this whole time?

Too afraid to share for rejection has been more of a friend to me than being accepted for all of me.

Will you see me as others do?

Or will you be different?

To be

Strong when all you want to do is crawl up in a corner.

To let tears flow when you can’t hold it all in anymore.

To love unconditionally and hope they will come out alright after you did all you could to nurture them.

To laugh and learn all there is without an manuscript insight but, have so many compliments about what a great job you did.

I would say that these are just a couple things I have seen a great mother do.

For all the things as a child annoy me or enlighten me it all stayed with me and made me realize I am who I am because my mother did the best she could.

And her best made me know that I got all I needed to become a good women and one day a good mother too.

Hopelessly

in my feelings day after day.

As I sit here thinking about well everything but mostly about you.

Not that I know what to say to all that at this moment of time.

I know that I am running on empty right now as I sit here trying to deny what is going on right now as I feel slightly confused.

But, every time I receive something from you it brings a smile to my face and it really doesn’t matter what it is.

The smile appears and it doesn’t leave for every thought of you brings it back as if our time together is well timeless.

I needed

This moment to appreciate all I have and may get later.

Tired is my body and hungry is my soul.

I crave the words that come from stories and books.

I crave the sound of music and can’t wait to hear the beat.

The words that stay with me forever.

I crave the sleep that I will gain once I lay down in bed.

I appreciate the one that helps me through it all and not just for today.

I know I’m ready to be near him and to know this struggle was worth it for I am worth it.

I’m being

Hopeful this year

I hope, more will become great moments for me.

And that I will live up to the standards that have been put out before me and those to come.

The feeling that this is not a repeat of anything I’ve ever experienced.

Before and so far and so the shift in my life has begun.

And where it will lead me is so unknown that I just keep walking because it feels right.

I can feel the light growing inside of me and the darkness is growing so small.

As I smile it grows so weak and tries to hide but I won’t lose this battle and it must go.

So I think about everything that makes me happy and whom I love and all I see for miles is the light in me shining so brightly.

And that is how it will be for now as long as I trust you, my lord, I will continue to win.
