It Happened

It has to have happened
One time
Someone believed
The story I was telling
Someone picked me up
Looked into my eyes
And saw that
I was still there

It has to have happened
One time
Someone saw past
The gibberish
I was speaking
To an empty chair
And put their arms
Around me
So I wouldn’t have to
Go through it alone

It has to have happened
One time
I sat and stared
Out the window
Trying to convince myself
That I had
A place in this world
And someone
Encouraged me
To take inventory
Of my life
To look at everything
That is inside
To be proud
Of who I am

It has to have happened
One time
You took a chance
On loving me
Wholly
Giving me
A place to rest
Something to count on
The ability
To be free

It has happened
Over and over again
I fall asleep
And wake up
Knowing that
You are with me
Holding my hand
A kiss on my cheek
Smiling with me
Feeling more love
Than ever before

again, though still

it’s so easy to fall in love with you
again, though still
open
honest
trusting
disarming
jumping into it
again, though still
with no fear
with no regrets
with everything I have ever wanted
craving to find out
everything I never knew I wanted
making it all one love
again, though still
when the moment finally struck me
when all at once you were right there
ready to love me back
it was so easy to fall in love with you
again, though still

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
