Happy Tears


You wake up to my crying eyes,
tears soaking your soft shirt.
I love you so much.
You can’t imagine why I cry,
when I’m looking into your eyes.

Our souls are meeting, again and again.
They’ve known each other before our bodies were even thought of.
You are someone I would never wish to replace.
I would do just about anything for you
to see into my mind.

Time triumphs but not over our intangibles.
Our souls are eager to move these bones,
our skin.
They want to fly and love and dream, together.

Long walks take us back to remembering.
Who we were.
We changed history, somewhere,
someplace.
You love me.
I hold onto this tenaciously
as the monsters in my mind aim to terrify.

You wonder why I look at you and cry.
I finally have someone,
a soul who can hold me back from the edge,
accept me when I’m weak.
You love me when I’m beautiful, ugly
and when I can’t access myself.

You have changed my mind a million times,
a million more than you would have believed you could.
You did.
You do.

For the first time, I trust effortlessly
that the demons are packing their suitcases.
They’re leaving the open windows,
diving down into their hellfire.
They can’t torture me.
No, not anymore.

Yes, I’ve done work.
Yes, GOD is the only one who can truly save.
I know this to be true.

You’re a part of my healing;
you’re my angel sent from god.

  1. What a beautiful piece of poetry. Isn’t it wonderful to have found your soul mate to share all of life’s moments with, good or bad, and to make you want to be a better person? Thanks for sharing. Hope all is well with you these days. It’s finally cooling down here and we’re about to get our first real snowfall of the season. It’s starting to feel festive. Take care. Linda

    1. It is an incredible feeling. I get scared of losing him sometimes. I try to appreciate and be thankful for every day with him and everybody in my life that I love. People make life worth living and bring about richer memories. It is back and forth weatherwise here ! One day it’s really really cold and the next, it’s in 70s. It’s been nice as it’s cooling down though. We’ve been trying to take more night walks and enjoy the crisp air. πŸ™‚ I hope you’re having a good season and fall. I can’t believe it will be winter so soon ! Time is flying this year. Thanks so much for your encouraging and beautiful words. Huge hugs πŸ€—πŸ’—

      1. I know what you mean. It’s hard to even imagine what life would be like without my significant other too. It’s a good reminder to cherish every moment and try not to sweat the small stuff.

        The weather here has been pretty variable too. Last week we had snow and freezing cold temperatures and yesterday I was just wearing a sweater outside. Things are definitely cooling down though and I’m getting excited for Christmas. I finished decorating the tree yesterday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      3. It’s something I’m working on as well. Glad to hear that you’re all excited for the holidays. I did most of my Christmas shopping (online) on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to take advantage of the deals, but still need to pick up a few things. Even though the days are feeling shorter, it’s nice to have our holiday decorations and twinkling lights to add some brightness and cheer. I put up some lights outside back in November, which might have been a bit too early, but I have no regrets as it was still warm outside.

      4. Yes!! I love the lights too. We have our tree up . Our first tree!! I love it 😍 πŸ’— it’s very exciting 😍. And I have a little one in Billow’s room. It’s so cute πŸ₯°. I have only two more to get for and then I’ll be finished but I did the same thing I got everything online. I don’t like going out on Black Friday πŸ˜‚ . It’s too crazy 🀣

      5. That is very exciting!! It’s funny because I have a little tree too that we keep in our family room where we watch tv as the bigger tree is in the living room. My holiday decor keeps growing every year! Hopefully this means that your holidays won’t be too stressful since you’ve nearly finished with your Christmas shopping.
