Yours and Mine


It is all yours and mine…

This unexpected pain

Robbing us of time

That should have been

Dedicated solely to joy.



We share the weight

We keep going, you carrying me

When I should carry you.

And all I want is the moment

Thirty days from now.



A white dress

The scent of freesia

The faces of friends turned forward

Then back to me…

I want to just be there.



Seeing you

Waiting for me

Beckoning me to take the first step

To hope

To know we are each other’s fate.



My heart worries

My soul is restless

Afraid I bring dark clouds with me

Snatching the blue from your sky

Robbing you of light somehow.



You promise me

Every day

That I am the other half of your heart

Your happiness, Your light…

Your life.



I can’t imagine

That I am to you

What you are to me-

Peace, hope, love, joy

Laughter in the darkest moments.



If you only knew

The pain you soften

With your words

The memories you erase...

The hurt you heal with a glance.



It is all yours and mine…

To take back our own sky

Paint the clouds, find the light

Hear no voices

But our own.

"Afraid I bring dark clouds with me
Snatching the blue from your sky"

I LOVE this line.

That is absolutely beautiful. I think we all worry sometimes that we are not the partner we should be...not what they deserve...but it sounds like your man knows you, accepts you, and loves you very very much. Congratulations.

I love your poems. I subscribe to your blog in Google reader, and always reserve some quiet time at the end of the day to read your posts. But today, when I noticed your new post was a poem, I snuck a peak while at work. So, here I am, at my work desk, teary-eyed, and grateful that you find the words to express your feelings so eloquently. Words which mirror much of my own feelings. Even though I don't know you at all, I am so happy for you. And appreciate that you're sharing this journey with us.
