Not meant to be

Some things are not meant to be… You ache, you pain, you beg and pray You wish that you’ll be guided Down that righteous way- Into the light, and a brighter day. You rise in happiness, tears of joy Of … Continue reading

His Princess

Sometimes I wish, that our eyes would talk Let them form their own words, express all’s worth. I wish there was a language for us, that we’d understand, Of imploring looks, overwhelmed heart and an open hand. Happiness is so hard, hard to write about … Continue reading
