Your Jacket

Wrapped up in your jacket
But not through your sleeves
Your arms around your jacket and me

I can’t wiggle out
Why would I want to try
I tilt up my chin and catch your eyes

Blue with gray flecks
Looking down to the place
Where one finger brushes my lips and face

Resting my head
In the corner of your neck
Squeezing me tighter just to check

That I’m right here with you now
That I know where you are
That I feel us together
Under this winter moon and stars

I’m not leaving yet
I’m staying right here
This time and this moment
Sees us perfectly clear

All Along

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.”

Rumi

Togetherness

Wrapped in strong arms

Holding me tightly

Against your skin I melt

Into the center of your soul

Head tucked under your chin

A gentle touch across my back

Looking up to meet eyes of golden brown

As you look back into mine

My breath is taken from me

Warmth radiates within

In awe of true connection

The essence of beauty

Existing in moments like these

Perfection living in this togetherness

Two souls merge into one

When Our Eyes Meet

Sparks when our eyes meet

Energy ignites when I touch your hand

I see into your soul

The beauty that lies within

You move me with your wisdom

Your gentle nature invites me in

I’ve needed a teacher and then there was you

An answered prayer

You and I flow effortlessly

There’s so much we have to learn

And I’m paying attention to every second

Sky Full Of Stars

I watch you from across the room

The way you walk

The way you smile

How you interact with others

How intently you listen

The determination in the way you are of service to others

How much you authentically care about other humans

The humility you exude

It’s no coincidence that are stories are parallel

That our paths have crossed

You know what it’s like to have this thing called sobriety and then loose it all… again

And to never want to go back there

So I watch you push on towards the light with passion

Then you look over my way and smile at me

It tells me everything I need to know

That you are amazing

A New Beginning… Again

Until I am done with a spiritual lesson, until I let go and learn what I need to learn, the lesson will keep presenting itself.

When I let go of what I think is best for me, what my ego wants, I am always blessed with new gifts. I can’t see what is right in front of me until I let go of the old and look for the new possibilities.

Now I see you.

You patiently waited until my eyes were opened. You’ve been there but somehow I missed you.

Like times before it hit me light a lightening bolt. I knew right then that I need to know you. I looked into your eyes and something happened.

It’s that knowing inside of me that hasn’t been wrong yet.

The moment that happened, when I knew you felt it too, it vibrated my soul. There’s a new experience I am meant to have with you.

I have my seatbelt strapped for the ride. Whatever it turns out to be, I know it will be more amazing than times before.

Each time has been because of the work I’ve been willing to do in order to grow.

God put you in front of me.

It’s a beautiful thing.
