A Year Ago

(On August 1st, 2019, my prayer from the night before was answered) A year ago I didn’t know the journey I was about to embark on. A year ago I woke up with a completely new mindset. To let go of all the stuff from the past that hurt me. That stuff I always carried…

A New Day

It’s a new day, with new beginnings, new allegiances. Time to lay down all our past grievances. Forgetting the past, forgetting all the failed attempts. Looking ahead and turning weaknesses into strengths. Minds reprogrammed, hearts refueled, and spirits revitalized. Plugging into a second gear to becoming reenergized. Leaving our old selves where we belong, in…

Reunion

I’ve written a poem for all to hear, hence I’ve taken centerstage. One that I hope resonates with all of you no matter your age. How I looked forward to these days, any longer I just couldn’t afford. For we know that where believers gather, there also is the Lord. So let us rejoice, for…

Heart-Shaped Box

A mysterious heart-shaped box lies on her desk with pieces of paper inside. Picked up the first piece and it read, “for my future bride”. A smiled came across her face as she knew exactly who had written it. Grabbed another piece and that one read, “thinking of you every waking moment”. With many more…

That Night

It must have been raining indoors I thought. “No wait, that’s just my tears flooding my face again.” There I was, broken. The grind of life having gotten to me. Emotionally, mentally, physically, it had me beaten. I had cried my eyes out before, but this would be different. This time I raised my voice…

Another Day

Another day without your presence near me Bringing my soul to a down-trodden state. Coping with the fact that I can’t decide when it’ll be, No, I can’t change the course taken by time’s fate. Your voice is music that my ears love to hear. Your eyes are nutrition for my sight. Your sweetness cures…

My Winter’s Tale

Running away from me and leaving me with this incredible sensation, Was what The Temptations sang about in Just My Imagination. Picturing us is what my mind usually tends to do. Every talk has me realizing how easy it'd be to love you. Side by side with a twist that we’ve never felt before. Hoping…

One Glance

One glance, that's all it took to get my attention. With love, joy, peace, and happiness, How could life ever be a mess? I had all of those and then some more, They showed up with you through the door. Like a common fool, I thought I'd be just fine. Then a second ticked and…

My Sweetness

A moment that will stand the test of time, The instant I knew I wanted you to be mine. No other girl made me feel like you did that day, Forever to love you and to live life in no better way. So take my hand as I take yours with no doubt in my…

A Life Together

First Meeting. The start of their greatest chapter. First kiss. The spark that ignites the very future they hoped for. Proposal. The leap of faith that changes their lives forever. Marriage. The promise to love each other for eternity. First time. The passion unleashed for one another. Children. The birth of their family. Graduations. Back…

Beautiful Moment 3

There I was sitting at my desk doing my daily word search when my oldest daughter, Alyssa, came up to me and told me the great news. “Dad, I got accepted into Tennessee!” “UT?, Oh my God, that’s great honey.” I told her as I got up and hugged her. She worked so hard to…

Heartbeat

My heart will only have room for one true love. And at this point in my life, I so badly want it to be you. The thing with life though is that it has it’s own timing. While I’d love for you to love me, you don’t right now. Maybe in the future though. I…

Beautiful Moment 2

“Seek first his kingdom and righteousness.”, You see Hoppy, if you ask God, he’ll help you find carrots.” That’s what Cameron was telling his pet bunny one time when I saw him in the patio reading. He’s very much into the Bible, and he wants Hoppy to go to heaven and meet all of his…

You Answered

A fallen mess was my life. Emotionally. Physically, spiritually in pain. A night of despairing ache. Countless tears streaming down like rain. I called. You answered, I was freed. Thank you. My Lord. My Savior. My God. A heart renewed. A spirit revitalized. Knowing you’re there for me at all times Never to question if…
