Soar

Soar through me
Behind me
Beneath me
Be me
So I can steal
You away
Take you to
A place where the
Wind is constant
We’ll be free
To ride the waves
With each other,
Rising and diving
Will be our religion
We will worship
In each other’s eyes
Burn for the kiss
Suffer nothing
Be everything
To each other
For each other
With each other

planning for forever

how can she just reemerge like that?
simple talk of times past
sharing the details of our lives
like we always do when we come together
but this time…

this time we came together
and we never parted
what a wonderful
what a beautiful
what an amazing thing it is
sharing the moments of our lives
making new ones
planning for forever

why you, why now?

it is because
you don’t often get
second chances in this life

I was wrong before
I was an idiot
I was blind and deaf

I was careless
with both of us

I have to take this
second chance
that we have been given

I have to take it
and nurture it
and turn it into
something we have always
known it could be

Squander
Your time
Getting
To know
Me again
It is time
Well spent

Even though
All you really
Need
Is the
Truth
In just
One kiss

On your neck
On your ear
On your cheek
Sliding softly
To your lips

Slightly parted
Sharing secrets
We have known
And kept
For so much time

Relief
Sought
And felt
In the warmth
Of a knowing
Stare

All a part
Of one
That has been
Separate for so long

Nothing More

Spending a late Saturday night (after a bunch of football) binge-watching some old episodes of NCIS I hear this song and start to wonder about it. The lyrics are simple but they carry great meaning, to me any way. So I won’t prattle on about why, I’ll just let everyone out there read for themselves. This is Nothing More by The Alternate Routes:

To be humble, to be kind.
It is the giving of the peace in your mind
To a stranger, To a friend
To give in such a way that has no end

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

To be bold, to be brave.
It is the thinking that the heart can still be saved
And the darkness can come quick
The Dangers in the Anger and the hanging on to it

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

Tell me what it is that you see
A world that’s filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don’t look like they used to, they look like you do

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More
