The need

To say what’s on your chest has been eating you up inside and tonight.

You finally said it and now you feel so happy and hopefully.

But you know life will throw a curve ball and all that seemed great may not always be that way.

But that doesn’t stop you for hoping things will change and work out this time.

For there are many combinations to solving and living the good way as there are only few for just living the safe away and tons of going down the path well traveled.

But now it’s time to finally step out and survive because change is necessary to go to the top.

Each door that is open will show you how to just trust your instinct and it will be true out just fine.

Will I

Ever be someone’s number 2 because I would hope they would put the lord before me.

For he leads and I will help on the side with carrying and helping get back up when you fall.

I will listen as you pour your soul and heart out to our lord.

I won’t be mad about being second because I know at the end we all win as long as we let him guide and protect us.

I hope today will be the start of something new and every day and night we grow closer.

But in the end let’s not be self centered and think only about ourselves because at the end of the day we aren’t completely in control.

We must be patient when things seem impossible because we know that’s what his all about.

So one day when you’re ready I will be there with you every step of the way.

So before

 I go today

I want you to know.

It’s been a struggle for me

To find the right words to express.

How much I care for you.

So many unsent text messages because I just didn’t know what you needed to hear.

And now there is still no words that feel good enough because you are too unique for simple words.

That won’t show you how much I care and that this isn’t just another friendship to me.

For I see you like family and you are important and I always want to check up on you and hope you well for I know you will do the same.

To smile

again feels so good right now.

Even though I know I’m walking into a Storm

I know that I am strong enough to handle it.

I know there will be times when it will be hard to really smile.

But, I know that the light in me will carry me through no matter what tries to run me down.

For this great smile will carry me through it all especially when I dont think smiling will solve the issue.

Just something

Sweet to eat with you before everything gets busy again.

New changes coming and it’s time to get all done so there is time to relax and enjoy the little things in life.

Time to be together and not apart.

Time to look back and laugh and smile about all the things of the past.

But to look forward to what the future holds for me and us.

Today is just the beginning to something great.

Maybe

 something good will come out of this space I’m in.

But right now the results are not quite in and the time it’s taking to get by for me is not so great.

But I won’t give up even when I’ve seen better days for I know there is so much more to look forward too in the next week and in the new year too.

To feel

the sun on my face after such a cold morning.

I just want to forget about today and hope for a better tomorrow

for I know things will be tough and the week will be long and at the end I will want to not come back again.

Things are going so well for me and right now I just hope and wish it will all work out in the end for I am tired of losing sleep over something that is not going to define me at the  end of my day or week.

Something   that has already changed me but not in the way I wanted it too.

At this point only the truth will set me free and today just doesn’t seem like the day where everything will be clear for me .

I can’t

Believe my eyes as I watch the snow fall down and I hope it stops soon.

And it does but it leaves behind traces that it was here.

The air is colder than it was yesterday making me want to stay in bed and not get up.

I don’t want to face the reality that it’s all going down no matter what we do even if we do it all together.
