You are the reason I draw breathes
The reason I open my eyes
The reason my heart beats a little too fast
The reason I can smell the blossoms
The reason I hear birds chip in the morning
The reason I smile
The reason my lips tingle with just a slight touch from yours
The reason my spine curves with just a stroke of your finger
You are the reason my body lights up with just a glance from your mesmerizing eyes
The reason my toes curl up in ecstasy every time I hear your deep baritone
You are the reason
My reason for everything

words don’t come easy

Words don’t come easy

This is true with all of us

We often yearn for a second chance

A chance to erase all our mistakes

A change to fight another battle

But never have the courage to ask for it

The path ahead is never clear

Days are so short and there is so much to do

Sometimes all we need to do is just say

“Let’s forget it”..”Lets Put it aside”

And be grateful for the things we have and the people in our lives

Lay down and watch the stars above

Revel at the wonderful creations around us

The sea, the sun, the Greatness of humanity

The flowers, the singing birds and the love between people

Lets find something better to love than to hate

Let the bitter words spoken by others slide off us

Lets smile it away and look forward to the sunshiny days ahead

Because even though words don’t come easy

Quitting is as easy as a walk in the park

So never give up in despair

Because tomorrow always comes

And the hope for a fresh start…
