A Precious Thing

We have a rare and precious thing, you and I

A strong physical attraction

An alignment of values

A meeting of minds

An uncanny connection that transcends the obvious

Exactly when, where or how this happened, is a mystery to me

Maybe it was in a dream

Or maybe, this is a dream

And I’ll wake up and find you gone.

Thoughts about connecting on every level with someone special

Life in Colour

The world became a different place the day that I met you,

The sun shines much more warmly, the sky’s a brighter blue.

The shades of grey I saw before, have somehow been replaced

My life is glorious technicolour, the darkness now erased.

My thoughts are soaring higher, there’s nothing I can’t do

My senses working overtime and all because of you

And yet I feel afflicted, and have a heavy heart,

My world reverts to shades of grey, whenever we’re apart

Life can seem very different when you fall in love.

All of Me

My mind, my body,

heart and soul

Have found their match

achieved their goal

My search now over,

needs now few

All my desires

met by you

Dreams of You

Have we met before, were we once a pair?

Did we share a kiss, have a brief affair?

Have we stood together in a warm embrace,

Did I hold your hand, gently touch your face?

Did we make love slowly beneath cool white sheets,

Then embrace each other ’til we fell asleep?

I ask because, as strange as it seems,

We’ve been together, if only in dreams.

When you meet someone special and click so well it seems as if you’ve known them forever.

Before

Somewhere we connected
Subconsciously in part,
Enjoying time together
More than the time apart.
I’m not sure how it happened
All I really know,
Is the time before I met you
Now seems so long ago.
I now want to be with you
As often as I can,
To share my thoughts and feelings
Experiences, plans.
It’s easy being with you,
It’s time that I adore
You’ve added something special
Made life better than before.

Without You

I miss your kiss, your scent, your touch
And wonder how I feel this much
For you in such a short timeframe
My life will never be the same
Without you

I long to hold you through the night
Being with you feels so right
I miss you more than I can say
Don’t want to be another day
Without you

Yearning to be with someone can be painful.  This is my homage to those feelings.

Whatever that means

How do you define it, in feelings, thoughts or deeds?
Will you recognise it when the early seeds
Are planted, and your world begins to change
This powerful disorder that can leave you feeling strange
Incongruent emotions, your mind a tangled mess
And patterns of behaviour range from reserved to excess
A rush of pure adrenaline, a stab of searing pain
It will take you to the heavens, crash you back to earth again
And yet you seem conditioned to seek the force unseen
To hear the words “I love you,” whatever it is that means.

Love – unfathomable, indefinable, incongruent?
This poem is a tongue in cheek commentary about love, after hearing the words “I love you…whatever that means.”

Let’s

Let’s not look at our past with anger and regret

Because you and I shared something incredibly special

Let’s acknowledge our mistakes and accept our challenges

We can learn from them and become stronger together as a consequence

Let’s appreciate we are different people from when we met

Stronger for our time together and wiser for our time apart

Let’s use this deep understanding of each other

To sort out our differences and connect more fully than ever

Let’s stop playing games with each other’s feelings

Our relationship was originally based on truth

Let’s just take this relationship and make it work

Through communication, honesty, trust and love

Author’s notes
Should you get back together with an old love?  It works for some and not for others and relies on learning from the past, planning together for the future and living the present.
