Some Days

Some days we’re off. Some days we’re on.
Some days we’re weak. Some days we’re strong.
Some days we’re happy. Some days we’re sad.
Some days we’re feeling, a little bit mad.
Some days we’re flexible. Some days we’re tight.
Some days we worry, with all of our might.
But always remember, that no matter the day,
You’re always the light, that will brighten my way.

-Becky

I wrote this because it can be interpreted in many ways. Your light could be your faith, your family, your spouse, your children, your friends or even your yoga practice.

Owl Love You Sweetheart("Owwwaaalll!")

Owl Love You Sweetheart
(“Owwwaaalll!”)

I wrote this poem a while ago for my sweetheart, Mike.

The brightness in your eyes

Cast a light which never ends

Before our love was realized

We started out as friends

With friendship, came the courtship

Which then turned into love

The rain that once poured down on us

Has stopped from up above

Our dreams have seemed to come alive

Our fears have turned to dust

Holding you, I feel at home

For in your arms I trust

My heart has captured all of it

My eyes have froze in time

Fixated on the one I love

Blessed to call you mine

Our darkened rain has faded now

And in it’s place leaves light

A brightness only we can see

And there’s no end in sight

My love for you has strengthened me

And with our love brings light

For in each other, we found a future

On those lovely summer nights

He’s my everything. I love him more and more each day and I can’t really imagine my life without him.

Everyday, he tells me I’m beautiful. Everyday he makes me feel special. And everyday, he shows me how much he loves me. A love like that is so rare and I’m beyond blessed to have him in my life.

He and I have been through ups and downs, as every good and passionate relationship does, and through it all we’ve stuck by each other. We started out as friends and stayed that way for a couple of years. I went through a rather tough time in my own life, married at 24 and separated by 25. In my own eyes, I was an emotional disaster. Everyone tells me I’m the strongest person they know, but nobody knew the hurt I was feeling. The pain inside me was often masked with witty banter and sarcastic humor. But when I looked in the mirror, I had turned into someone I barely recognized. I was in love with the life that I thought I had. I thought I was happy, and for a while I was, but near the end of my marriage I realized that I had grown and needed to make a change or I would always be staring back at a stranger in the mirror.

It wasn’t until after being separated, that I truly saw the light. I realized that one of the people that was always there for me, was Mike. I also came to find out that he had always rather fancied me, and that he wished things were different so he and I could be together. He, of course, never told me that until much later. (One of his friends AND his Momsie also told me that.)

We realized quickly how much in common we really had and that we had something special between us. Something we had never experienced with someone else before. We had found our happy place, in one another. Almost two years later, and we’re still going strong. Everyday is a happy one and we both know how lucky and blessed we truly are.

I love him.

Always have. Always will.

The Boy

Love you sweetie

(Written by: Me!)

Psst. Come a little closer

I have a secret I wanna share

There’s a boy I know, who I kind of adore

And I don’t even give a care

I don’t care that he’s a kid at heart

Or that he plays with toys

I don’t mind the fact that he buys whole pies

Yet takes just one slice to enjoy

I love his collection of Lego men

And that he wears his broken watch

I’m ok with how he makes the bed

And believes it to look oh so posh

I love the way he makes me laugh

Whether his jokes are a hit or miss

I love how we have a million catch phrases

Like “All the best things.” and “I don’t have time for this.”

I adore most everything about this boy

I’m such a lucky girl

To be able to say I’m in love with my best friend

Makes me the happiest person in the world

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

Standing Still

(Written by: Me!)

Some people like to lead the way

Some people like to follow

Some of us, we just stand still

When we begin to feel hollow

It seems the longer you are still

The harder it becomes

The wait can feel endless

It can feel as though you’re numb

You used to be a leader

You used to feel at home

Now you feel as though you’re trapped

Now you feel alone

You watch the others pass you

With ease and with much peace

You know that will be you again

When those emotional shackles are off your feet

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

Seasons & Emotions

(Written by: Me!)

Our emotions are like the seasons

They change as time goes on

Sometimes they make us feel weak

Sometimes they make us strong

They can drive us to tears in the blink of an eye

While at the same time, make us numb

The driving force behind these feelings

Are often masked by what’s to come

Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall

They all have ups and downs

That’s why emotions are like the seasons

And why they can always be turned around

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

Shades of Grey

(Written by: Me!)

What once was black and white

Has now turned to shades of grey

The more you pull the fabric

The greater it will fray

You try to hide the sadness

That flows behind your eyes

You try to mask the hurt you feel

By being in disguise

You disguise yourself as feeling perfect

But perfect, you are not

You wish you weren’t so envious

But envy’s all you got

This emotion has been haunting you

It’s consumed your waking hours

Turning your heart inside out

Has become it’s greatest power

Your greatest fear was realized

The moment you found out

Your pain had turned to envy

And you knew what it was about

What you’re feeling

It sickens you

How can this all be fair?

Why have you let yourself be bothered?

When normally you wouldn’t care

They say that’s life and what’s done is done

It’s time to move ahead

You know yourself, you’ll get through this

It’s just hard to forget what was said

Your hope is that this strengthens you

And burns your hurt away

You pray the envy escapes you

And leads you to better days

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky

 

 

Memories

(Written by: Me!)

The memories from that day

Seem to haunt me through the night

Why did I allow myself, my eyes

To fixate on that sight

I saw the headlights coming

I tried to close my eyes

I told myself it wasn’t real

Sadly, that was just a lie

I shouted out so loudly

Maybe that would make time freeze

It may as well been just a whisper

As the impact had taken over me

As I lay me down to sleep

Is all I can recall

Knowing that I put us there

Is the biggest regret of all

Looking back on all that happened

I realize we were blessed

But still, the memories of the accident

Are ones I pray I’ll soon forget

Peace, love & sarcasm,

Becky
