The Love that Once Was

They said, it would last for ever.
A match made in heaven.
Our personalities reminiscent of the story of Cupid
It happened to be a big bubble pricked by the reality of time.

I can love.
I have the capacity to love.
I want to be loved, held, and appreciated.
To love is to be loved.
For you to love, you have to give.

Who are you?
What have you become?
What did I Do?
Who is to blame?
You stood taller than the Empire state Building
The majesty of your presence was a wonder to behold.

There was a time I was your sweetest Rose.
The One who makes your heart skip a beat.
The one who made your eyes twinkle with excitement.
I was the most beautiful woman on the Planet.
The one who moves to the sound of music,
The lady whose smile was like the Sun,
I was your comforter,
I was your friend.

I was the one you were devoted to,
I was joined to you at the Hip.
I was the second half of your heart.
You were the mighty one in my eyes.

You were so innocent, you could do no wrong.
You were patient and Kind,
Your touch was softer than the softest pillow,
You hug like you were my protector,
You words made my head spin in cycles.

You knew it and you teased me.
You reached into the very depth of my heart.
You ripped it apart with the words that were once magical.
Where has the love gone?

Our Love could still burn, it is never late to love.
We need to remember the promises we made to each other..
Wake up from your slumber and fan the embers of Love.

  1. Love is strong and powerful. This is a better life to live than being weak, fearful, and living with hatred. I will make a commitment to love more this month. The first step I would take; to be more generous with the compliments and stingy on the negativity. I think it’s a great way to start…………

  2. Lovely and encouraging poem. It’s never too late to start or revive love. And this is February too…

  3. The poem is really beautiful, these were my favorite lines:

    You knew it and you teased me.
    You reached into the very depth of my heart.
    You ripped it apart with the words that were once magical.
    Where has the love gone?

    thanks for sharing friend.

  4. Perfect for this month and every other month. Wake it up people! Nice one.

Do you want to live vibrantly in your body and make nourishing choices?

The answer is to NEVER STOP LEARNING. Research has shown the benefits of keeping the brain active to support the development of new brain synapses which consequently leads to growth and prevent memory loss.

So the key to LIVING AT YOUR FINEST is to maintain continued education in all the domains of holistic health: physical, occupational, social, spiritual, environmental, emotional, intellectual, and financial.

Today on Episode 49, I unpack the following:
✨ What It Means to Enrich your life?

I am just wondering on this #WellnessWednesday if you have ever said "It cost so much to be healthy"?

I have and it is true but guess what is more costly? Treating preventable lifestyle-related diseases, here is the data to prove it:

👀85 to 90% of healthcare dollars are spent on chronic diseases
👀It is estimated that 80% of chronic diseases are actually attributed to modifiable risk factors
👀Roughly 1/3 of cancers could have been prevented with improved lifestyle factors.

Wouldn't you say it is worth the investment in our time and lifestyle behaviors to adopt a holistic and healthier approach to our overall well-being so as to avoid spending an excessive amount of money on monthly prescription pills, doctors' appointments, labs, radiation, etc?

A gentle reminder that "NOTHING CHANGES IF YOU'RE NOT PRIORITIZING YOUR HEALTH."

Tell me in the comments below what you are doing currently or plan on doing to invest in your health?#healthiertogether

Happy to share some of my strategies for investing in my health- I am improving daily (#lifelonglearner).
🔍Eat nutritiously dense foods instead of calorie-dense foods.
🔍Daily movement to enable my body function at its optimal
🔍Prioritize my sleep for restorative purposes and so much more
🔍Practice self-care so I can recharge, reset, and retreat

Now it is your turn to share. I will be looking out for your strategies?
