this life.


this life.

a gentle fog meanders down the mountains

dew sticks to the trees, and creeks flow like fountains

there is an innocence in the air

crisp wind that moves through my hair

i take a deep breath, filling my lungs with cold

smiling softly, remembering everything i was told

by the man i’d laid with the night before

still feeling his kisses along my neck, god i wanted more

he was different than anyone i knew

he listened, he watched, this love i knew was true

how could it not be, with everything i see?

his smile, his eyes, his laugh; could bring me to my knees

this life has been weaving together beautifully

pieces falling together almost perfectly

i’ve been realizing just how remarkable it is

if i stop and look around, seeing things i’d normally miss

being present, breathing, love and being

learning the art of detachment is so freeing


and allowing the magic to unfold around me

this is a feeling that i never want to leave

i am grateful for this life

as it’s brought so many miracles, everything going right

my heart fills with love and gratitude every single day

so much so that i am often left breathless without anything to say

thank you for this wondrous existence

i promise to push forward daily with creativity and persistence

i hug myself now, goosebumps crawling across my skin

looking to the setting sun with amazement, knowing love will always win

thanking the cosmos for this life daily will bring more good things

so i relax, close my eyes and allow my heart to sing

gratitude forever blessing me

beautiful miracles never missing me

circumstances will continue to set everything right

so wonderfully positive when i am grateful for this life.
