Cherish


When you fail to cherish what you have,
You rush to get what you think you are missing,
You open your hand to get more,
But what you already have,
Will slip through your fingers.

Be Close. Be True. Be Strong


A close relationship is when each one has room to grow their own wings,
A true relationship is when each one can freely say I was wrong,
A strong relationship is when distance does not mean a weaker connection,
But a greater longing to be together

Dance with me

A man shows his attraction to a woman by dancing around her,
But expresses his love to a her 
When he dances with her.
He holds her in his arms,
But keeps her in his heart,
Close enough that she always knows how he feels about her,
That she never has to guess or doubt.
She is not common to him,
So he calls her not by her common name,
But the name that she has written on his heart.

An undefined relationship

An undefined relationship pauses questions without presenting answers,
It is like going for a ride without a destination;you do not know when you have arrived,
You close your eyes without knowing what you will see when you wake up,
Uncertainty is your companion and doubt is your bedfellow,
You are together and yet alone.

Love liberates

Love does not restrict,
Love does not trap,
Love does not hold back,
Love empowers you to have the option to leave, 
So that you choose to stay at will.

Love liberates.

Distance

I do not measure the distance between us in time or miles,
I measure it by how strong we connect emotionally, 
How well we understand each other,
How far we meet each other's needs, 
How clear we see each other's individuality,
How close we hold each other's heart,
How quietly we speak to each other,
I am not 18 hrs and 45 minutes or 9,129 miles away from you,
I am as close to you as I can reach out to you and you to me.

Live in the moment

When you live life by the clock,
Measuring your days in hours, minutes and seconds
You race through life for an empty prize, working to catch up, keep up or stay ahead,
You taste without savoring, 
Look without seeing,
Touch without feeling, 
Hear without listening,
and smell without memory.
Stop.
Savor the taste,
See when you look,
Feel when you touch,
Listen when you hear,
Stimulate your mind with a scent,
Then you will measure your life in moments,
because you live in the moment.
