Its the lasting feeling of being held with a firm but gentle grasp that says “I’m yours.” I am appreciated by love. It’s the kindness in a touch and the handling with care that says, “I’m thankful for you.” I am appreciated with love. It’s those three words that when said, come from your soul […]

The Beauty Within

I saw a beauty in your eyes that stirred up my very existence. I questioned everything I thought I knew when it comes to the beauty of a woman. But you’re not just any woman. It’s more that just the radiance of your smile beneath the fullness in the curve of your lips. It’s deeper […]

What if I?…

What if I said hello? Would you just say hello in return or would you see that this would be our beginning? What if I called you? Would you just answer the phone or would this be the moment you realize my attention is all yours? What if I only said goodnight and not goodbye? […]

It’s knowing without hesitation, even when you think everyone else can’t see, that you’re beautiful. Sketched from the inside, it’s a masterpiece of perfection.

Her words are needed. It’s her presence that changes the mood. There’s brilliance in the way she carries herself. Effortlessly she’s noticed whenever she steps […]
