I Never Left

i thot. i’d never see the day.
the day. the sun. turned blue.
the clouds. dark.
and the heavens. began to weep.
lightning. coursing through the sky.
shocking the earth to reality.
the roar of the thunder. screaming. deafening. almost… almost. as if. in pain.

fear. gripping. loneliness. aching. helpless. hopeless. darkness.

just when it seemed like the world was coming to an end.
bleakness. dead. stillness. quietness.

Suddenly!
the sky opens. first a trickle of light.

spreading. touching. feeling. soothing. warmth spread like joy. peace.

the earth still. scared. not knowing. huddled.
afraid. afraid to embrace. to look. to experience.

then it came.
the still. soft. silent. voice. saying. softly embracing. smiling.
I’m still here.
I never left.

Memory-s

when I’m with you I have trouble looking at you because I’m afraid I won’t be able to take my eyes off you and you’ll catch me starring at you

that is so uncool.

but I wish I’ve got a photographic memory, to capture each moment second by second, and print them out and put in my album made specially for you

that will be so cool.

cos no matter where or how far or if I never get to see you again

I don’t want to ever forget.
never.

I’ve Got This Baby, I Certainly Have!

LIFE.
curve balls. hard knocks. tears. challenges. despair. heartbreak. sadness. failure. misery. despondency. weakness. death…

LIFE.
success. winning. laughter. victory. joy. love. happiness. success. ecstasy. jubilation. strength. birth…

LIFE.
dream. passion. talent. doubt. believing. disappointment. hard-work. failing again. hope. getting up. faith. focus. not giving up. making it happen.

I can feel it in my bones. Oh God! I’m so excited, heart beating fast, toes tingling, eyelids twitching, ear burning, contractions coming stronger.

Almost here! Almost here! Almost here!

I’ve Got This. I’m Not Giving Up. I’m Going to Keep On Pushing. 

Just a little while longer 🙂
