And just for thought...
A smile and some winks over some creamy pasta
Talking about this bubble of a life we created
And I couldn't help but to feel this warmth
That we've woven when it's just us.
Through this dream of a life we live
We've stumbled, we've fallen, we've failed
But somehow in the clutter we've become, too.
I think about the moment I knew there was love.
I recall the instant I knew he was forever.
I will never forget that face at the end of the aisle.
All of these moments led us to that creamy pasta.
It just takes a smile through the fog
To remind me that every misstep was for something, was for us, for me to understand what love truly means.
In the twisted tale of this hard life
A happy living was in store for a girl like me,
This woman I've become
Who still feels at times out of place in this skin
But I'm starting to fit into the wrinkles.
These moles have become mile markers
For every minute I've been lucky to breathe
Next to him, this man who somehow found me.
This man who somehow silenced my feet
And smoothed my once jagged heart.
I sipped my coffee, my bitter addiction,
As I looked over the table
And I couldn't help but to laugh to myself
Because for all the things we don't see eye to eye on
We see each other so very clearly.
I know the minute he falls to sleep
And he knows the second I wake.
Somehow on this earth I've found a haven
Sitting across from him, this man.
We've got goals, we've got plans, we've got this journey we've plotted out together.
I don't know how these steps will fall
But we know our direction, standing beside the other.
We will grow weary, we will become tired
And somehow that does not frighten me like it used to
Because he will be sitting across that table from me when I need a rest, when he needs to be still
In our beautiful little bubble of a life
With a smile, with some winks, with a bowl of creamy pasta.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
