A True Blessing


Life has an interesting way of presenting itself.

Suffocating memories never settled so pleasantly and smoothly.

 I think we were never meant to be, but I am glad that you came into my life.

Those memories of you will always bring a smile.

We were golden, we were fire, we were magic.

Yeah, we wrote our own story full of

blood, sweat and heartbeats.

Loving you dork, it was heaven.

We were crazy, tragic and epic and so amazing.

The last kiss we shared tasted like a wine,

sweet and bitter like our memories.

If only I could have you back for just a while.

You gave me the greatest blessing of all, love.

You allowed me to see what it meant to truly love another.

Love is art, a blessing that must be embraced and enjoyed to the fullest.

You, my darling, my first love I thank for allowing me to see beyond

a dark sky and reaching the stars.

You made me the happiest girl with just your smile.

With those adorable dimples of yours.

 With your captivating life stories.

I fell in love with an intellectual thug that managed to break

all the barriers I placed over my heart.

  I am tired of blaming you for all the whys

when I should be grateful for your presence in my life.

I have never met someone that has gone through so much pain

and still has such a positive view of the world.

I broke every possible rule I ever had in order to keep you in my life.

I wanted you but most importantly needed you.

Since the moment I saw you I could not focus on anything else.

 I needed to escape your presence in order to even breath properly again.

 Till this day you are the only person that can make my heart

 beat faster and slower at the same time.

But even fairytales have to turn the page to start a new beginning. It hurts.

It hurts the worst when the person that made you feel so special yesterday,

makes you feel so unwanted today.

But that's alright because you helped me discover yet another lesson.

I love myself. I like who I am and I am worth it.

I do not wish to change that, no matter how many people I lose along the way.

  I will cherish those beautiful memories

 that I can’t seem to let go of.

There are things we don’t want to happen but have to accept.

Things we don’t want to know but have to learn.

 And people we can’t live without but have to let go.

 I waited and waited.

For minutes. For hours. For days. For weeks.

But all I had was silence and with the absence of your words,

I took it as our final goodbye.

I became so fragile and bitter over our ending

That I forgot the beauty of our beginning.

You took a piece of my heart but

I am now ready to let another fill it.

I still believe in the promise of crazy love.

You were a true blessing my dork.

    This brings a bittersweet smile to my face... Makes me look back on myself a bit.

    It's good to put feelings down like this. It hurts to bring them up, but once they're out it feels so much better. I'm sure you know
