My love for you...

My love for you is not a mushy, gushy, romantic comedy thing.
It is a love of endurance.  A strong love with an eternal bond.
I love you like the like the clouds love the sky. I adore you.
You have a place in my soul, where only you and God reside.
 You were my past, you are my present and you are my future.
You will be, my dearest, always in my heart.

Vibrant colors...

I see the world in vibrant colors.
Red, blue, yellow, purple and green.
Together these colors form a cohesive whole.
Perhaps one day you will see them too.

My neighbor sings...

Every night at exactly 8:00 pm my neighbor sings an aria. He is terribly off key yet he sings as if he is Pavorotti. At first it bothered me, but I've gotten to where I sort of love it.

She realized...

She realized that her love for him was like rain.
At times It spilled down from above and would encompass her.
At times the rain rushed down on her like a torrential downpour.
She realized that her love for him was like rain.

I have never met a strong person...

I have never met a strong person who hasn't encountered trials in life. These trials don't define you.  They refine you.

The reason...

The reason we have struggles in life is that when we get to the other side we are grateful for making it through. It’s like when we catch a bug and have a fever for days.  Suddenly the fever breaks and we begin to feel better. It’s then that we realize how good it feels to be well.

I’ve always had this wanderlust; this need to travel. Throughout my journeys I’ve come to realize that despite cultural differences, despite different religions, despite contrasting life experiences, we all want the same things:  safety and  a connection to friends and family.  No matter where we live or the circumstances in which we find ourselves, when it comes down to it, we all are inherently similar. When we travel and meet people who we perceive are different than us, we ultimately realize this: we are all part of the same humanity.
