My days have been brighter lately…
Not that it was dull before, oh no way!
They just shine more for the past few weeks.
Morning comes with more zest as I open my eyes, eager to turn the phone on.
There will be something waiting for me.
Simple words that will make me smile and make my heart sing with joy.
He has a way with words that win this blogger/writer – wannabe (he thinks I should ditch the writer-wannabe attribute for I am a writer already. Swoon!)
I fell in love with how eloquent he is, how good he is with words and most importantly he never uses those annoying text languages. Oh, thank God, no!
I’d go about my day with a wider smile on my face.
And a twinkle or two in my eyes.
During the day we would sneak some conversations in and my busy day feels more bearable. In my frenzied schedule, I found comfort through his words, his voice, his smile.
Of course, I was a skeptic at first.
“Oh c’mon girl, you’ve been here before. You’ve been through this! Get your self together, woman!” My bitchy inner self would snap and slap me hard. “Aren’t you getting too old to be feeling like this?”
“But this time it’s different…” The helpless romantic in me would plead.
“How?” The bitchy inner self would raise one eyebrow
“Just different!” And the minds wander off…smiling, can’t stop and won’t stop thinking about this person, this man that has stolen my heart.
How can I explain…when words failed me. Failed to explain, failed to justify.
He inspires me to write, to keep on writing. To revive old dreams almost long forgotten because I felt like I wasn’t good enough writer. He reminded me that my voice is my voice…and there is no other voice like my own in this world full of great writers.
He ignites that flame in me, he believe in myself that I have what it takes to make those dreams come true. One word at a time…one page at a time…
He makes me realize that my past is my past. It has brought me here to this very day and shaped me to be the person that I am today. That I shouldn’t keep looking behind me and fear what happened in my past will come to hunt me down and repeat itself. I’ve learned a whole lot, I had grown, and I had become wiser if not smarter.
How can I not fall for someone who could say something as eloquent as this and more?
Every day I got more reasons to believe…
Thank you for believing in me, D!
