The Simple Life

I Wasn't Ready


I wasn’t ready for your arrival

I wasn’t even looking for you

I was busy going about life

I was simply looking for meaning

Then you showed up

======

You surprised me because you were honest

You surprised me because you were keen

You surprised me because you were intense

You surprised me because you were kind

You truly surprised me

======

You surprised me because you looked for me

You surprised me because you took time for me

You surprised me because you wanted to know me

You surprised me because you never gave up

You truly surprised me

======

You surprised me with your wisdom

You surprised me with your intuition

You surprised me with your inquisitive mind

You surprised me with your quick thinking

You truly surprised me

======

You surprised me

I surprised me

We surprised me

Joy surprised me

I couldn’t help but smile

======

I smiled more when you were here

I laughed more when I thought of you

I lived more when you were near

I loved deeper when you came

I was more than before

======

I was more because you demanded more

I was more because you pushed hard

I was more because you never relented

I was more because you never doubted

I was more than ever

======

I was more because my perspective changed

I was more because my thoughts were deeper

I was more because my faith grew

I was more because my eyes opened

I was more than ever

======

I was more because my ears had filters

I was more because my heart was steady

I was more because my focus was set

I was more because my life was at peace

I was more than ever

======

I changed as you pushed me to shift

I changed as you challenged me to know God

I changed as you demanded I grow in faith

I changed as you prayed for me

I changed, into God’s picture of me

======

I changed into a strong girl

I changed into a beautiful woman

I changed into a thoughtful human

I changed into a compassionate person

I changed, I settled, I stabilised

======

Then poof….. you left

Just like that you were no more

In a blink you were gone

In a flash you were nowhere

I was alone once again

======

I was alone and it got dark for a moment

I was alone with an empty heart for a bit

I was alone groping as if blind for a few days

I was alone crying to let out the pain

Yes, I was alone again but not the same

======

Yes, I was alone but not the same

I was alone but not as shattered

I was alone but not totally unstable

I was alone but changed on the inside

I was alone but able to heal

======

Your passion for God taught me trust

Your faith in God showed me possibilities

Your heart for me taught me love

Your giving taught me selflessness

Your life changed mine

======

Your compassion healed me

Your strength challenged me

Your listening validated me

Your grace made room for me

Your full life gave me hope

======

Your life gave my heart hope

My heart is full of gratitude

My heart is full of peace

My heart is full of love

My heart is full of God
