1980 Our Year In Love

The depth of our love has an infinite range,
as I reminisce on the day that we met.
I will always remember your deepest voice,
a mellifluous sound I will never forget. 

You caught me off guard, while working my flight.
In a three piece suit, a tall Adonis you were,
as you bowed your head to enter the door,
I had no idea what next would occur.

When I served you white wine, I asked if you sing.
You smiled and replied “only in the shower”.
It was late at night, and the flight was long. . .
You came to the bar and we spoke for an hour.

You shared with me your love of surfing the waves,
and working at the shipyard at Pearl Harbor.
We both felt the chemistry of love’s sparks fly,
and I could barely contain my joyful ardor.

The drone of the engines made it hard to hear
so we spoke with a nearness that captured delight.
Your scent took my breath in a heavenly way,
and we hated to see the end of our flight.

You took my hotel number and promised to call.
You kept that promise when home you returned.
Soon our whirlwind romance began to aspire.
In my heart, in my thoughts, that flame always burned.

It was not long until this isle I called home,
and I have never regretted a moment with you.
Life with you quite a challenge, but oh. . . so divine.
You still make sparks fly in sweet things that you do!

*Note: We have been married for 34 years now

Cyber-Love

Thought I'd experienced love, and all the different shades,
Then you came along, and we found another way.
You caught me off guard, I didn't see it coming,
                        Did you?....
 
Sometimes I wonder if you hoped for all this,
Or if you got caught in your own trap?
Did you really think, you'd fall in love this way?
              Or were you already?....
 
When we shared those special moments,
And you opened your heart to me.
Thats when you grabbed my soul,
            Held me captivated...
 
You own this heart of mine,
Your name's engraved inside.
I'll carry you with me forever,
  You know that don't you?...

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

Yesterday I was on such a high
Today I just want to sit and cry
Why did I say that cutting word?
Forgive me please I’m just a bird

Sometimes we misinterpret what’s been said
We get it wrong it’s all in our head
Saying sorry is really really hard
What was said caught me off guard

You’ve been really good to me
Helping to set my spirit free
Good times I hope we can still share
I write these words because I care

Caught Me Off Guard

Somewhere you are sitting
Unaware of how I feel
Then again maybe you know
How I wish that you'd reveal
Every now and then
I like to close my eyes
Pretend that you're with me
The dreams I fantasize
Honestly I wish you knew
The things inside my heart
Everytime I think of you
I wish we weren't apart
Never did I think
That I would fall for you so hard
Can't control the way I feel
It all caught me off guard!

Our Story Begins

I always knew that love would come find me someday
But never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way
You caught me off guard and took me by surprise
But you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyes

It's true that every good and perfect gift is from above
You were presented to me as a beautifully packaged gift full of humour, talent, intelligence, beauty and love
"It isn't finding the perfect person but learning to see an imperfect person perfectly"
We all have our flaws but when I view you through my eyes, perfection is all I see

From when you laugh to when you're upset, I still love the little things you do
Especially hearing you laugh and seeing your nose wrinkle the same way mine does too
Coming into this relationship has been hard at times but we've made it through
I know as long as we're on this journey together, there's nothing that we can't do.

Sometimes I wonder if what we have is too good to be true
Too scared to get my heart broken and scared of the thought of losing you
But in the end, I trust in the author and perfecta of what I believe
Because what we ask for in Him, we in return shall receive

"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also" is how the saying goes
I may not know what tomorrow may bring, for God is the only one who knows
The one thing I do know is that you are my one and only
A treasure in my heart that I want to devote my whole life to completely

I know I don't need to prove my feelings to know they're true
Because what I've known in my past, doesn't come close to the experience I've shared with you
I've had the experience of being in relationships before
However, this is the first time I've been truly happy... I couldn't ask for anything more
It's an honour to know that I am yours, as you are mine
And I trust God bought us together in His beautiful time

For now, I'll be waiting patiently for that day when we'll be together
That precious moment in time when I'll say, "it's you that I want to be with forever"
God makes everything beautiful, precious and new
Just as beautiful and precious as the day will be….. when I look into your eyes and say, "I Do"

Blessing Star

Your black hair shimmered
I knew not the reason
I watched it every little season
My heart and head simmered
Your shapely body twinkled
As if never would it be wrinkled
Yet it had a little lesion
Which never ever rankled


You were my heart`s queen
Those organs of sight
Just witty and bright
They caught me off guard
An angel is all l had seen
I zoomed heavenward!

You're Going to be Missed

You’re Going to Be Missed
It’s been so long…
Since I’ve sang a song
About you, of course – my Love…
You fluttered into my mind like a lovely dove
I have nothing left of you…if only you knew
I hung your picture on my wall
I had everything before I lost my other shoe
And I have tried to stand tall…through it all…

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

All you were to me was a headache and a fever
That’s how I thought of you…now, I’m unsure
I never thought you’d change the way you did behind my back
You’re not getting me back…you left me, cold and insecure, on the magazine rack
I’m on my own, but not alone
You were my one and only backbone

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I cried…I bled…I dreamt of you in a sugar-coated dream
I lied…to myself…I slept in pastures so yellow and dry…
I’m breaking by the seams
I’m breaking by the seams
You mended my broken dreams
He mended my crooked halo…
And refined my aura’s glow 

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I shouldn’t be complaining…
But, I’m not satisfied with your offer…
Instead, I should be sustaining 
A positive mindset, but I’m upset…because you…
Because you weren’t a friend, but a foe from the start
You were never there for me when I needed a shoulder to lay on
You were never there dawn to dusk…you haven’t noticed the pain 
In my eyes…in my eyes…avalanching from my eyes…I can’t shine on…like the handsome dawn…

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I claimed you as my own…like a gold piece, dug out from the ground…
Now, I need His healing rain
To shower upon me relief…obliterate the grief from my heart…without a sound…
I’m spell-bound and gravity-bound – all packed up in one…
And now, I’m shattered by your absence….waiting for the sun
To shine on…upon me…. to murder the night of envy

I’ve tried to answer His call…
I blame it on you for not catching me before I fall…
You’re going to be missed dearly
You’re going to be mine forever
You’re going to be hurt so badly
By the aftershocks of tomorrow’s yesterday

I wish I were as bold as a knight…during midnight hours
I remember pulling out the weeds in my life…
I watered down the roots of wisdom in my head
I remember being a fruitful tree until strife
Caught me off guard…now, I’m doused in dread 

Tears force me to look like a fool
Fears make me appear like a worthless tool
I’m stronger than I realize
I’m not alone
And I’m not a failure 
You’re going to be missed

Forget You

You thought you had a hold on me?
You thought right, you did have a hold on me
You thought letting you go would break me?
You thought right, it did break me
You made me miserable
It was always about you, you self-centred selfish son of a…..!
My thoughts always occupied by your beauty
Mission in my life was to satisfy your needs
Your caring for me was camouflage
You made me lose my balance
Caught me off guard
Longed for your attention
I blame my naïve little self
How blinded I was from your abuse
Your ability to speak harsh words to me and not flinch?
Not listening to me and always wanting something from me?
Change has emanated
I embrace difference, I am different
My step conveys swag uncontrollable
Confidence oozing out of my pores
Beauty beholding me with no regrets
I hold my head up high
Take a bow
Witness the inauguration of a Queen
Powerful, strong and not afraid to exercise her authority
I can feel it 
I am forgetting you
You unapologetic, doleful, egotistical, self-aggrandizer, inoperable, ugly son of a ……!
Forget you man

Oh by the way, I bet your mama has a loud bark!

A Long Time Ago

Pat my back for a while
Even your smile lifts my world
My troubles, they all fly away
Fly in whites in the blue sky

The paddy field is busy
The wind just love to slap my face
That is all I can say
It was a long time ago

You are on my bed
Lying alone, but of course, with clothes on
Started to sing along with the voices on the radio
Ah, it's still morning

Your shy demeanor caught me off guard
Sometimes wild, sometimes sensitive
You should know
I'm not talking about what you're thinking

Your warmth has reached me
It feels so unreal
But it did happen
A long time ago

That is My Psychological Diagnosis

Skin pale white,
her hospital gown,
a moth filled wedding dress.
straps and shackles tie her down 
like a corset;
more buckles and ties than Harry Houdini.
she frantically turns
toward the door
like a two year old 
throwing a temper tantrum,
her hands wrapped around her body,
hugging her own hips.
Fingernails cut down to the cuticle 
just in case she had any ideas.
Dirty blonde hair becoming static
as if she rubbed a balloon on her scalp
a head of tranquility, restless hair from sex.
Panting,
like a winded dog chasing its ball,
Her lips caught me off guard,
They were blue, not like 
the cold midnight sky,	
but a body  
bound for hypothermia
longing for freedom from restraint.

That is my psychological diagnosis

YOUR LOVE CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD

Captured by your charm
Lost in your gaze
Scared of no harm
Yet shaking at the feel of your warmth
Begging time to stand still
Asking the stars to capture this memory eternally
Yes, I was caught 
Lost in love's web

The night echoed our secrets
The day read up our history
Every one told our love story
No one tried to come to my rescue
For the reports clearly painted the picture
Yes, I was caught, 
But this time I was caught
Begging to remain a captive in love's web.

My Letter to You

Dear Sarah the Sorceress
Dear Sarah my Sorceress
Dear Selena...
I really need to talk to you
I really need a word with you
but one word isn't going to do it for me
and all my words seem to be failing me
As you can tell my head isn't right
I have no clue what to say or do
so I guess I'll just start by saying
by saying...well I love you
by saying...well I miss you
Don't get me wrong
I have no intentions of ruining your relationship
I have no intentions of getting inbetween you and your love
I have no intentions of taking your love away
I just need to get something off my chest
I am crazy
I am crazy about you
I was crazy for you
I was crazy with you
I guess I'm just crazy without you
I guess I'm just crazy because of you
Recently, I've been depressed
What does that have to do with you
well I'm always depressed
once I speak to you
well I'm always depressed
once I think of you
The kid in me
the one that fell in love with you
the one that kissed you May 22nd 2009
the one that fell apart moving away from you
June 27th 2009
That was the start of my downfall
just moving away from you
I spent my entire freshman year of high school
wishing to be with you
wishing to hold you once more
wishing to see you once more
wishing to never see you again
wishing to never hear your name again
wishing to get over you
for Dylan came in and stole you away once again
for I couldn't handle I had you for a tiny moment
and had nothing but poems to show for it
for I couldn't handle
losing my everything to some punk kid
I didn't even know
You are the main subject
in most of the poems I have come to write
It's a love/hate war inside my head
for I feel you have led me on
for I feel you have truly loved me
as the years keep passing by
but my timing has never been right
so everytime I believed I could get you back
so everytime I felt I could finally have you in my arms
have you in my arms once again
just hold you in my arms one more time
to know you were real
to know what we had was real
to know what I felt when we were first together
was completely true
My chances were ripped from my hands
and you cut me back down to size
like recently...
I fell apart once you said
once you said you loved me like a brother
I fell apart once I saw you were in love
it caught me by surprise
it caught me off guard
I fell apart
Don't get me wrong
I have nothing against her
I have no problem with her
I have no issues with her
I just can't stomach someone else having you
The kid in me just doesn't want to grow up
The kid in me just doesn't want to lose that one shred of happiness
The kid in me...
the kid in me is just me
I can't bear to see my first everything
become somebody elses something...
What I have gotten myself into this time around...
A deep depression
four years of words never said
for I was afraid you'd take my words
and toss them out
for I was afraid you'd take my words 
and bury them alive
for I was afraid you'd take my words
and just say you don't care
So after four years I say this
I love you
maybe forever
maybe just enough for today
I love you
I love you enough to get these words off my chest
I love you enough to see you happy
see you happy even if it's not because of me
I love you enough to let go
or at least attempt to
So after four years I say 
I miss you
I wish to hold you in my arms once more
just to know my feelings were once real
or is nothing more than a memory now
but I'll let a mystery be a mystery
and just let things be
Sarah the Sorceress
Sarah sweet Sorceress
Sarah my Sorceress
Selena...
I love you
Selena...
this is my letter to you
Selena...
you don't have to respond
Selena...
I just hope you read this and understand
I was someone with you
I am who I am because of you
All of this, all I am
started with you
Four years later
you're still what's always on my mind
no matter how hard I try to forget
Selena...this is my letter to you
Selena...
Dear Selena...
well
I love you
Our complicated love story
Romeo and Juliet
I guess it's over
your call
for now I take my bow and leave the stage
but Sorceress, just know
you're in my heart always

Hit the Brakes

Parts 2 and possibly 3 will come out tomorrow or this week... enjoy!! The other verse will be called Caught off Guard and the third - I have no clue yet! Enjoy reading this incomplete poem!:

Reassure me that today will be a day with flavor and spice
Unsure about my future, 
But I'll take His tranquil advice
Le the rain pour forth ecstasy upon me 
Let me see where my wonder-filled dreams lead me
Will it lead me back to the maze of bewilderment?
I'm getting sick and tired of feeling this wrecked-up resentment 
Possibly, I'll not be caught up in the ocean of commotion 
I hope that I be free...but frankly, this fretful, foul rage will never leave me be
Let me flow with the crowd... let me go with the flow
Let me go and I won't make a peep of a sound - let my inspiration grow
Someday, this lonely ghost will be out of sight
Let us both seek the sun tonight
Stray away from me,
You Depression monster, it has caught me off guard!
Stay away from me,
You Deceptive creature, it has made me feel weaker and life is getting hard...
Cease from making me feel vulnerable all the time
I fell in love with danger in an outlandish land...
It was getting out of hand...something was missing 
All the time you run, I can't keep pace with your heart beats
Do me a favor and tell me straight-out without any sign of hesitation if I'm a heartless disgrace
'Cause, to be honest, I don't want to see your face...your face...
You caught me off guard...
I'm falling apart...trying to hold on to you
Please share peace with me - it's something you shouldn't discard
You're voice is failing me...my distressed heart cries out for you
Cries out in reckless rue...
Your shirt is inside out
Just like your upside down life - but, then again, look at mine and you'll have no doubt
That I have troubles of my own
I can't help but frown...but don't feel down
I won't smile for you
I won't think highly of you
I won't run the extra mile for you
I won't sacrifice myself for you
I won't gain any more interest in you
I won't punish me for your mistakes...
HIT THE BRAKES! HIT THE BRAAAAAKES!!

Reassure me that today will be a day with joy and gratefulness
I have to wind down pretty soon...I know I have the strength to endure
This hardship that hits me to the core - making me prone to distress
Maybe if I pray to God, He'll be my everlasting cure

I'm bringing the upcoming challenges and acting like a boss
Sleep without waking up in alarm and be anxious for absolutely nothing
I'm in the midst of affliction and poverty
You still have some tarnished scars and gashes to patch up 
Frankly, my attitude stinks like rotten fish on a hot, summer day
My night-wishes - not night-scares I hope! - come to life like a zombie, slowly getting out of its grave...creepily...

I have to hit the brakes 
I can't keep on repeating the same cycle...
I tell myself to stop falling into the pit of darkness, 
But, I'm emotionally drained - 
I'm sinking faster than the speed of light
I keep on making the same mistakes
I keep on committing the same selfish crimes
Will keep on bugging me until I hit the brakes!
End these fears and help me put on my faithful gears 
Oh Lord - have mercy on my sorrow-whelmed soul!

These Walls

I spent my entire life
Building these walls
Hiding among the shadows
So that I couldn't fall

Feelings I cast out
Independence then over shadows
Humor I tend to use
To fight my toughest battles

Not looking for love
Trying to keep flying solo
Keeping my emotions at bay
Tending to keep myself hollow

Then you caught me off guard
There was awkwardness at first
But as the days moved on
I began to feel the thirst 

The thirst of your love
Your kind and gentle touch
I began to show my feelings 
And at first  it was just to much

The walls I feel are breaking
My heart is fully exposed
An award sir you should receive
Because no other person has known

Its only been a short while
But I hope this lasts forever
I'm trusting you with this gift
I'd say your rather clever 

So please don't take advantage 
I'm starting to stand tall 
I love you babe with all my heart
Your the only one to break my wall

I finally see the light again 
Feeling blessed in each and every 
way
Thank you for for coming into my 
life
I really hope you decide to stay

So bring on the future 
Joys, fights, laughter, and tears
Because I know we can conquer 
Relationships I no longer fear

I hope this stays strong 
Lets go along for the ride
I look forward to what may come
Cause I know you will always be by 
my side

Chance Encounter

   A thousand times I have heard, 
“There but for the Grace of God...” 
but until today that phrase, 
struck me as somewhat odd. 
 
   The old Cowboy who staggered by, 
was three sheets to the wind. 
but he swept off his hat before me, 
and at the waist did bend. 
 
   “Fair Lady, how goes your day?”, 
he asked as he deeply bowed, 
his face was flush, but his manner gentile, 
and he spoke clearly, though not loud. 
 
   The politeness of his question, 
had completely caught me off guard. 
I looked into his wind-burned face, 
and saw a look that was not hard. 
 
   “My day goes well, and thank you sir.” 
was my own courteous reply. 
As I gave a small curtsy and a smile, 
I saw a twinkle in his eye. 
 
   “Oh surely, Lovely Lady, 
you have truly made my day.” 
He put on his hat, caught his bearings, 
and sauntered on his way. 
 
   No one else along the street, 
looked directly at him or spoke. 
Some looked away, while others laughed, 
and and made him the point of their joke. 

   I alone had been blessed, 
only I knew what lay inside, 
for it had been revealed to me, 
what rumpled clothes and liquor hide. 
 
   I had seen a gentleman, 
a Cowboy tried and true, 
with manners most becoming, 
a Real Man, through and through. 
 
   I was allowed to look past the fact, 
that he was poorly dressed and shod, 
I had seen the inside of a Heart, 
and the Grace placed there by God.

My lowest ebb

                                               MY LOWEST EBB

                                                 At my lowest ebb
                                           Trapped within life’s web
                             The snares of life caught me off guard
                             And I am let to believe there is a god
                       The same god who is supposed to be my guard
                 My hands are burnt from the fire balls life throws at me
                                  Void and empty like a vacuum
                A black star within the constellations unreflective to sun rays
            It’s all pitch black but my heart burns with emotions that enables 
                    Me to dance to life’s rhythm and sing hymns of hope
                                       And broaden my life scope
                 I am a man therefore I am supposed to cope not elope
                            I have been taken for a joke like a coke addict
                              Though for I know it’s a superficial verdict
                      Betrayed from my trusted precinct by plastic smiles
                             While I was at it, I will get past it
                      Their grin, green with envy as it overshadows my being
            Life has walked on me like a door mat, but my rage remains dormant
                    Silent as the night, like a medieval knight I will conquer              
                                                      This life
                                            For I can see the light
                                    I am bound by the virtue of right

Hit me like this

I never knew love could hit me like this it hit me hard like a ton of bricks i wasn't expecting it 
but it just hit caught me off guard came in real hard turned my world upside down made me 
lost till i was found spun my head round an round made me dizzy with its pound turned my 
heart inside out dug in deep with out a sound gave me courage when i was down lifted me up 
from the ground made me feel id never come back down could this be love that i found it 
tugs on my heart with the invisible string you found i feel its pull when your not around 
together we are bound by loves invisible string you found

Surrender

You are the most incredible man I have ever known. You came into my life like a compelling force of nature. A mighty roaring sea. Like a tidal wave that caught me off guard you surrounded me. Consuming every fiber of my being. Unaware that I was caught in the undertow. I was drawn into the deep, blue ocean with a power too great to overcome. I surrendered to your love .

Song of the late night sorrow contest

Come fluttering words, come drifting words to me  . . .
Open my eyes to what I can’t see,

Their on the floor I found what was missing,
As I recall all the nights we spent kissing,

You ran out so fast and did not give me a chance,
I told you my heart and you just gave me a glance,

Now on the ground I spot are new fate,	
A ring filled with pearls, I must be too late,

I just needed a moment to truly explain,
Instead you ran quickly into the pouring rain,

You spoke with passion, hunger and thirst,
I felt as though my heart would suddenly burst,

But then you enquired about me being your bride,
It caught me off guard like the evening tide,

Marriage is sacred to me my dear,
I cannot just say yes and have you disappear,

I know you are leaving early tomorrow,
And now I taste tears filled with such sorrow,

But I would have waited here for you,
For there is no one else I would want to pursue,

The nights hold our love like a candle with its fire,
Your touch is so precious my ultimate desire,

Please come back to me and make this right,
I will wait for you on this disastrous night,

Even the stars scream out my plea,
Floating through space and eternity,

I meant no such harm by the words I spoke,
They echo in mind as I simply choke,

Oh dreadful darkness have mercy on me,
Bring back the one who makes me happy,

I am left paralyzed in the silence of this night,
With just a symbol of our love to fill my hearts appetite,

If morning comes and you’re not back,
Nothing will fill this internal lack,

So I scream out to the crescent moon,
While Praying that you will come back here soon.

The Gift

We hiked in the hills for a long, long way
My privilege was to gift their feet that day
Soak them in water, soothe with mint lotion
Seemed to me just the right heaven sent potion
My desire, you see, was to mimic my Lord

Their refusal to allow it caught me off guard
My gift was unwanted, unaccepted and scorned
No concern had they; oh, how my heart was torn
It occurred to me then how my Savior's gift waits
To be opened and entered as tabernacle gates

Will his everlasting Gift I glibly ignore
As He washes my feet on His infinite shore

A million life times


 I always knew love will come find me
 But I never though it would be today
 And I never expected to feel like this
 When love did come my way

 But love has caught me off guard
 And it just took me be surprise
 And I fall madly in love with her
 With just one look her eyes

 And everything about her is so perfect
 Like a beautiful angel from above
 She is like god gift of perfection
 with beauty, intelligence, humor and love

 I never have believe in reincarnation
 Or that there is another life before
 but i know that i have loved her
 For a million lifetimes or more

 I can’t explain what I’m trying to say
 About how I feel and about my emotions
 It’s like she is a ship sailiing
 And my love is the great big ocean

 She is like the sun, the moon, the rain,
 The water that makes flowers the grows
 But everything about her so is perfect
 From her head to her cute little toes

 And just like the wind will keep blowing
 And the waves must comes to shore
 I, m know that I have love her
 For a million life times or more

 And some days will bring stormy weather
 We know the sky can’t always be blue
 But as long as we face life together
 There’s nothing that we can't do

 We don’t know what will come tomorrow 
 God is the only one who knows
 But I love her more than words can say
 And every day the affection of my love will shows

 Every thing about her is a dream comes true
 I always prayed, keep hope and believe
 And she is just an amazing miracle
 For all I ask of god, today in her I receive

 And now that she is in my life
 I wait patiently for the day we are together
 For that moment to look in her eyes
 And say I want to be with you forever

 And is the first time I will ever been happy
 And I couldn't ask for anything more
 Because I’m with the girl that I have love
 For a million life times before

Creole Woman

I went down to the Caribbean Sea,
An island paradise ahead of me.
I meant to go for just another lay,
So I went and got myself smashed that day.

I saw he standing there, with coal black eyes,
And long dark hair, that didn’t disguise,
The curves she had, caught me off guard
She was the finest thing down in that bar.

As I drew up near, my ride began
I should’ve feared that Creole woman.

What was in store, I did not know.
She waved me one, so I had to go.
She gave me love, oh yes, so much,
A helpless fool at her tender touch.

A night gone by, the best I ever had,
The kind of lover who drove men mad.
As morning came, I thanked sweet God,
But she was gone, and I was robbed.

I stumbled out onto the sand
I cursed her name, Creole woman.

My passport she left, that one small gift,
The cops said she’d given the many the shift.
The tropical waves lost their attraction,
I hopped a plane, got back to Jackson.

It started soon, the identity thieving.
Had to fight every step, the stress unceasing.
A lesson learned, but which still does vex,
The things that woman can do with sex.

Next time I vacation in Japan,
Far as I can get from Creole woman.

MY BETTER HALF

I always knew love will 
come find me some day
But never did i know that it 
will be you who is headed 
my way
You caught me off guard 
and took me by surprise
Happiness and peace i feel 
each time i look into your 
eyes
It's true that every good 
and perfect gift is from 
above
Cos you were presented to 
me packed with beauty and 
divine love
You are like a dream come 
true
The moment destiny 
brought together me and 
you
You brought light to my 
dark world
Laying the foundation to 
my dream world
It isn't finding the perfect 
person that really matters 
to me
Cos each time i look into 
your eyes perfection is all i 
can see
From when you cry to when 
you laugh
From when we joke to 
when we chaff
You made me realized how 
lucky i am
Finding someone like you 
who is as precious as a gem
Sometimes i wonder if my 
feeling towards you is too 
good to be true
Cos am so scared of the 
thought of losing you
Being beside you feels just 
right
And never will i let you out 
of my sight
For i finally found someone 
to fill the void in my heart
And make my wall of 
loneliness to fall apart
Someone to bring me peace 
of mind
and fill the empty spaces in-
between the fingers in my 
hand
A heart to love and hand to 
hold
Someone to cherish and 
behold
I may not know what 
tomorrow may bring
All i just want is for your 
finger to wear my ring
It's an honor to know that 
am yours as you are mine
We are connected like the 
bone to the spine
I don't need to doubt my 
feelings i know they are true
Cos they led me right in 
finding you 
I want to hold your hand 
and walk a million mile
Looking at your face 
starring at your amazing 
smile
You occupy a special place 
in my heart
And nothing in this world 
will make my feelings for 
you depart
I love you so much to the 
point of going craze
For you are so special and 
amazing
I have spent half of my life 
searching for you
Let me spend the 
remaining half of it being 
with you

reason why

I always knew that love would come find me someday
 but never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way
 you caught me off guard and took me by surprise
 but you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyes

It's true that every good and perfect gift is from above
 you were presented to me as a beautifully packaged gift full of humor, talent, intelligence, beauty and love
 "it isn't finding the perfect person but learning to see an imperfect person perfectly"
 we all have our flaws but when I view you through my eyes, perfection is all I see

From when you laugh to when you're upset, I still love the little things you do
 especially hearing you laugh and seeing your nose wrinkle the same way mine does too
 coming into this relationship has been hard at times but we've made it through
 I know as long as we're on this journey together, there's nothing that we can't do.

Sometimes I wonder if what we have is too good to be true
 too scared to get my heart broken and scared of the thought of losing you
 but in the end, I trust in the author and perfecter of what I believe
 because what we ask for in Him, we in return shall receive

"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also" is how the saying goes
 I may not know what tomorrow may bring, for God is the only one who knows
 the one thing I do know is that you are my one and only
 a treasure in my heart that I want to devote my whole life to completely

I know I don't need to prove my feelings to know they're true
 because what I've known in my past, doesn't come close to the experience I've shared with you
 I've had the experience of being in relationships before
 however, this is the first time I've been truly happy... I couldn't ask for anything more
 it's an honor to know that I am yours, as you are mine
