You go through life at a hundred miles an hour,
Then suddenly you stop and reflect….
You realize it was a good life,
With growth, nurturing and love surrounding you.
You see that life was wonderful no matter how much or little you had…..
He takes care of you as long as you believe,
But even when you lose faith He makes your life fruitful….
And He never leaves your side.
As night falls your ship is guided by the stars,
Reflections in the water remind you of angels sent to protect you from the dark unknown.
That is like love...
You are unaware of the unknown and follow blindly through the darkness,
But the love you see guides you through and takes you to safety.
And she ensures you that the sun will shine once again.
They say love is sweeter the second time around,
However it is one’s view of it…..
Things may work…
Or, they may not.
But through the course of time one learns to open their heart to it.
One lives and learns…
But that is what He wants you to do,
And rejoice in the experience…
That experience is called love.
You meet someone once in a lifetime, who steals your heart,
They take your breath away just like standing on the edge of a cliff,
They warm your heart and soul as the sunshine warms the flowers and you bask in the warmth.
You reach for this person but they are like the wind,
They slip through your fingers as they come and go.
And then the sun sets and flowers fade,
But you look back….
And then you feel how fortunate you were to have it come into your life.
Love is like a rose….
It is beautiful and brings joy,
But during the winter the petals brown and fade.
But with care one can protect them….
And in spring they will flower again and the beauty is restored.
You wake as the sun rises and fills the earth with glory,
You bask in the morning calm and glow,
The sun gets higher and higher and turns warmer from the tribulations of love.
You try to shield yourself from the heat….
But you know you have to make it through.
Later the sun sets and all you see is the beauty and feel the slight breeze,
It is calming….
That is love…
Morn is the beginning, the mid is the tough times and the end is…
Knowing you had the faith to get you through.
