Our Song

Image

Many couples have a song

One that they feel describes their relationship

We never bothered to find one that suits us

Upon reflecting on that now

I realize there isn’t one yet made

There are countless love songs

Many that are beautifully written

But none that we both relate to

One that we both feel describes what we have

Perhaps then we must create our own

What we share is so wondrous

It’s beyond words

I shall try though to convey our story

Show the world our love

May it forever shine brightly in these verses

For years, I dreamed of my own Cinderella story

Finding my prince and riding away into the sunset

Living happily ever after in a perfect animated world

Though in those stories

You only get to the beginning of their journey

What happens to the prince and princess years later?

What does their love overcome?

I always wanted to know more

Because it’s about more than falling in love

It’s about staying there too

Upon meeting you, it wasn’t love at first sight

It took time before even our friendship would bloom

Getting to know you though was quite the journey

One I don’t feel will ever really end

In fact, I feel it’s only just begun

Over time, respect was earned

As our friendship grew

Other feelings began to surface

Though we both hesitated to act

Each had our own reservations

Many saw what we did not

The potential for something beautiful and true

Between me and you

Eventually we both saw it for ourselves

And in time we decided to give “us” a try

Like turned to love

No longer written on the pages of a fairy-tale

It became something real

Something enduring, something meant to last

Built upon a solid foundation of friendship

You’re my best friend and I am yours

Walking the winding roads together

Weathering life’s storms

Loss, grief, sorrow, hardships

Hand in hand, we’ve seen one another through

Laughter, joy, celebration, and hope

Growing stronger

Both as individuals and as a pair

Looking at where we are now

I don’t mind the road I had to take to get here

Our song isn’t your traditional love song

But it is as beautiful as any other

One to be listened to over and over

May all who hear it know where we’ve been

Where we are and where we will be

I love you, Doug.

Happy nine months

Believe In Love

A jaded heart

One that’s been torn apart

Too many times to count

For the tears shed, there’s no known amount

 

A wall built sky high

To keep out every lie

Love is people’s foolish notions

Why bother going through the motions

 

You meet someone

They promise you the stars, the moon, the sun

Things seem to go well for awhile

They even convince you to walk down the aisle

 

Then with a mighty blow

Their true colors show

Bound now by a piece of paper and a ring

Doesn’t it now seem like such a silly thing?

 

Fighting day and night

Kids hear you from somewhere out of sight

Lawyers, battles, ugly times

Read this and heed these rhymes

 

Don’t give your heart away

For in the end, you’ll pay

Both figuratively and from your wallet

See your heart wandering, go and get it

 

And if you believe I meant any of this

Then you know nothing of my true feelings on wedded bliss

It can end badly, it’s true

But that’s up to the both of you

 

So many rush into things

Not knowing what the future brings

Led by hormones raging

Not knowing the wars their hearts are waging

 

Others settle for they feel it’s the best they can do

Not believing in themselves enough or in you

Fearing spending a lifetime alone

Not having someone to call their own

 

Some say they’re doing it for the kids

But in the end, the parents fight and take bids

So many do it for the wrong reason

Forgetting the true meaning of the season

 

I have seen it work out

My happy ending exists, of that there’s no doubt

I was once that girl with a jaded heart

The one who was so torn apart

 

But when I let love in

I saw a new life for me begin

Love can be true and last a lifetime

When nurtured forever, not just in its prime

 

I say this to all who are angry and blue

Who have given up on saying “I do.”

Love is not a waste of time, it is real

Don’t shut your heart down, let it feel

 

Sometimes we must go down broken roads

Before we find our prince or princess, we must kiss a few toads

Don’t give up, don’t lock your heart away

Let it find the love that is real, the one that will stay
