Forbidden Love

A rebellious cat and mouse game
Shocked us all with the love that came

The surprise look in every eye knowing
Yet each without words to explain

How could the ones who protect you get it so wrong
Why the fear of different worlds questioning where you belong
What should matter is being his princess, his queen all fair
And him prince charming, your king crowned in care

Stolen moments thick with emotion
The yearning looks of unspoken devotion
Time stands still and our silence speaks volumes
While the promise of forever fills the air

What is integrity when all you feel is anguish and pain
From trying to navigate family honour and duty in vain
Life can be cruel or is it the people who proclaim to love and care
When all they do is weigh you down with pressures to bear

What choice to make about which path to take
Do we succumb and let go of our dream
How will we know if we do not try
Will our feelings numb and our desires die

In the end we’re pulled apart
I’m left feeling like dying from a broken heart
Trying to stay strong while hiding my tears
Not wanting to journey within my deepest fears

How do I ever carry on living without our happy ending
When I’m surrounded by the people I’m hating
Where to put all these negative feelings to rest
With what to convince myself that this was for the best

As time passes you may think your wounds heal
But then a special song scent and word
Births moments of sadness and hurt
Causing old emotions to stir that you can’t help but feel

There may be a beautiful sunrise or sunset
That wakens dormant thoughts bringing past to present
And even though that time together was short lived
Those memories will always evoke a secret life that lives on forever

Nostalgia

The warmth of a breeze 
The rustling of the trees 
A special sunset or a twinkling star 
Remembering you and pondering where you are 
Do you think of me too and the things we use to do 

Words unable to express the feelings that filled our space 
When every second together felt like a saving grace 
Sharing memorable moments of joyous times 
With your warm smile and laughing eyes 
Safely cocooned in a world of our own 

Years later my thoughts run away 
Meeting where only dreams prevail 
Why did we part and break each others heart 
Are you happy in bliss or living a numbing pain 
Could we have made it through if we had tried again 

Thinking of what may have been 
Wondering about everything unseen 
Was our ending worth the sorrow 
Did we both experiencing a better tomorrow 

I allow my emotional well wishes to take flight 
Hoping you’re somewhere in-love and your life filled with light

Moments

Its time to forge your path 
Take flight and soar 
Enjoy the highs and lows 
The world is here to explore 
Experiences are all you keep 
What is now is not on repeat 
Don’t waste your time with overthinking 
Grab hold those young and carefree 
Before you’re to old to do and see

Live Life

Fear not. Stay true. 
For your life is to live. 
Hold your consequence, happy or sad. 
Own your choices, good or bad. 
You are in control. 
Take a chance. 
Make your move. 
Time does not stand still. 
Another day, Another way. 
Just keep journeying along. 

The beauty of life is living free
And beholding this brings out the beauty in both you and me
