Freedom

Comforting and unique, your presence ignites my creativity. I am myself when I’m around you. Handled with your love and wrapped in your sensitivity.

You have become my greatest inspiration. What my life has been missing. Now I’m focused and driven, nothing can break my concentration.

I feel a freedom that’s with me even when you’re not near. A freedom that eases my mind and makes my vision clear. A freedom to break down every wall. A freedom to move forward and conquer all.

Compliment

When I look at you, I get lost in your eyes. It’s the allure and reassurance that keep me mesmerized.

Your smile is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It’s filled with affection and affirmation.

The sound of your voice is a sweet melody. It’s as satisfying as it is mollifying.

Where my sight was cloudy, you made my vision clear.

Where there was only wishing and dreaming, you purposed my journey.

Where I discovered love, is where I found you.

Time

She is what you desire.

She is what you need.

Treat her right and you’ll experience her gentleness.

She will turn your dreams into accomplishments.

She will be with you as you create memories.

Treat her like the queen she is and you’ll experience her power.

She will be on your side when you need her the most.

She has no limits and nor restrictions but if you let her get away, she’s gone forever.

Reflection

Is this just a thought or the start of a memory?

Is this only for the moment or is this a lifetime’s beginning?

Is this just a promise kept or a destiny fulfilled?

Is this a dream come true or is this the manifestation of purpose?

Is this a love blossoming or is this the revealing of a love that was always fully bloomed?

Am I reflecting on things I’ve wanted or is this a reflection of more than I’ll ever need?

Attention

She pays attention…

To the quietest of words spoken in the loudest places.

He has her attention…

She listens to the way his heart skips a beat whenever she enters the room.

She pays attention…

To the way he greets her.

To the gentleness that’s in his strong arms.

Not gentle in its touch but gentle in the way it speaks to her heart.

She pays attention…

To the way he looks at her.

She sees in his eyes that he believes in her and admires her. He admires her strength as well as her beauty. He admires her class as well as her sass. He admires how she knows just what he needs even when he doesn’t.

He admires how he has her attention.

Countdown

I couldn’t see a moment without you in my life.

You taught me how to touch the sky and I never looked down again.

I felt the difference you started to make in my life.

The aroma of more than enough is what I smelled. The sound of your voice became necessary.

Five senses…

In the spring, we started something new that has blossomed into forever.

In the summer, we took a dive in a pool of possibilities and swam into purpose.

In autumn, doubt fell like leaves and were blown away in a wind of understanding.

In the winter, we lit a fire with the flames of passion that warmed our hearts.

Four seasons…

I love you in the morning.

I love you at noon.

I love you at night.

Three times a day…

I was made for you and you were made for me.

We compliment each other where no one else can.

We understand each other like no one else can.

We love each other like no one else knows how to.

Two peas in a pod…

No longer just you and I, we’ve become us.

Helping each other grow, as we become stronger each day.

We won’t fail because our love will prevail.

One Journey…

Welcome to The Brown Sugar Cafe

I enjoy writing because I use words as a way paint a pictures of my thoughts. Sometimes even before the words are written, I get a picture of what I am about to write. Even though each time is different, writing takes me to a familiar and comfortable place.

When it comes to my blog, I always look forward to Wednesdays because it’s a weekly invite to the moments I experience while writing. My readers get a chance to walk through my mind and experience my thoughts about love.

I’m so glad I decided to publish Love Letters because I get a lot of feedback of how people are really enjoying it.

Expectancy

The desires of her heart began to change…

So she was in anticipation for love.

She began to believe that it was real…

So she was willing to trust love.

Her heart was prepared for love…

So when it came, she was able to receive love.

She was in expectancy of love…

So when it came, she was able to give love.

The Essence of a Woman 

Never have I seen a woman more beautiful.

A woman who wears confidence as if it was designed for her and only her.

It’s in the way she walks.

It’s in the way she speaks.

Her Intelligence dances on her words with the echo of her voice.

As flawless in character as she is in grace.

The sweet smell of her perfume fills the air and remains long after she’s gone. But is it the scent or the memory because she’s made an impression that I can’t deny?

She’s a woman and she is powerful in every way…

Unbreakable

The fullness of your love is the unbreakable connection to my heart.

The unselfishness of your heart is the unbreakable connection to my love.

The strength of your love is the unbreakable connection to my life.

The wisdom of your heart is the unbreakable connection to my love.

You’re all I ever want and need. You complete me in ways I didn’t know existed until you came into my life.

What we have is truly unbreakable….
