All that Brought us Here

We are now the sum of all that brought us here-
            the long, lonely road that somehow kept us both single,
                        waiting for each other.

Every step, every triumph, every loss, every disappointing detour-
            became a piece of our souls that would one day
                        only better connect us.

If only we could have known then that we each were out there-
            waiting for one another-- it would have been
                        so much easier.

If only our paths had crossed sooner--so many more days together-
            but then, it wouldn’t be what it is now,
                        and now is all I ever wanted.

Here with you-the paths diverged, lives intertwined, hearts together-
            all that brought us here-- it’s who we are now.
                        The sum, the beginning, and everything in between…us.

Happy 2nd Anniversary to my husband, best friend, soulmate, and partner in crime, Shea. I love you.

My Walk

Walking down this street
In a city I thought was my past
So distant but not forgotten
A part of my soul-
left here with regret wrapped up in goodbye.

And here I am
Only better this time around
Not alone, not lonely
All the pieces slowly
found their way back- connecting in some random, dreamed-up destiny.

All the ‘I nevers’ rescued
The ‘if onlys’ forgiven
The best parts of me survived the fire
Ashes scattered behind me-
lost in the wind- coloring the breezes of another sky.

Walking down this street
In a city that is now my home
Hope gleaming from the corners and rooftops…
I take it all in, savoring this short walk
that was years in the making, just waiting for me…to take the next step.
