Baby I'm The Lucky One

The rain dances outside,
while I dance with you.
The iPod shuffle lands
like a bee on a flower,
" Say you, Say Me."
I love Lionel Richie,
and when he sings,
" Say you, say me; say it for always "
our lips meet in a kiss.
I land on your chest,
in this moment I want it to be for always.
My tormented soul has found
a home.
Thoughts scattered and for a moment
our eyes drown in each other.
I want this to be for always,
till my dying day,
a refuge,
a celebration,
a revelation,
peace for always.
Merlot bottle is empty,
we smile.
Many moons ago we did not promise forever
only the moment.
We lived in the present,
we loved without holding back,
without regrets.
Small steps
building memories,
fire in our eyes,
fire in our soul.



 
This is dedicated to my husband Carl. Today is our anniversary. He is my best friend and my world. When we met I was a single mom raising my son on my own. Josh and I were very close and he was
my universe. Carl and Josh's relationship grew and we became a family. Carl has been a great 
dad to Josh. We were blessed to have another addition to our family when we had Daniel.
So amazing all the things that we have gone through together and I feel so lucky to have the love I have 
in my life.

  3. Sharing such deep love is the most precious gift you can ever be blessed with. You were all so blessed and lucky, your sons too. Most fall out of love because they stop working to keep it. They don't realise that love takes effort to keep it fresh and alive. I was smiling so big all the way through this. You've shared a lovely piece of your heart and soul in this Ayala. Beautiful.
    Happy anniversary to you both, may there be many, many more to add to them.
