Loving you blind

To love you is to carry you with me everyday, not seeing you but still feeling a connection between us…yearning to be next to you because that is where home is

To love you is to sacrifice my happiness for yours, because when you are happy so am I, either way I am smiling

To love you is to drown myself in tears trying to explain how I feel but I just can’t seem to get the right words out…or make any sense at all

To love you is to close my eyes and allow my heart to wander carelessly in the dark because I have no limits, no boudaries and intentions to stop

To love you is to love you blind…Am I making any sense yet?


Shimmering finger

The sun smiles down and it starts glistening

reflecting memories of November 17 and reminding me of what I have this morning

It doesn’t quite fit to the finger but I think somehow that is a good thing because

every time I stop it from falling I feel like it mirrors my support to him

Never let ‘us’ fall

Today, is another special day on the calendar, not a birthday, not a public holiday but

for me the highlight of a commitment made on the 6th of September

Updating that contract ensuring the terms and agreements are still mutual

until the official ‘save the date’

when I join in a union sealed with his ring

until then this engagement leaves a shimmering finger.




Happy Anniversary to my fiancé’ Gerald
