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.

Thinking about when to buy organic versus inorganic produce?

Here is a guide on this #WellnessWednesday from the Environmental Working Group (EWG). They rank the pesticide contamination of popular products based on the results of tens-of-thousands of samples tested by the USDA and FDA.⁣⁠ Those lowest in residues are dubbed the “Clean 15” and those with the highest levels are known as the “Dirty Dozen”.⁣⁠

It is essential to our health to avoid toxic residues in our products as much as possible. The decreased toxic load helps to build
🙌a stronger immune system,
🙌healthy gut,
🙌reduced inflammation
🙌balanced hormones.

Now is it always feasible to buy organic? No, it isn't and for several reasons: availability, cost, etc. But here is what I would say

☀️Eating your 5 servings of fruits and vegetables always have more value than not eating them at all because of all the beneficial vitamins and minerals needed for optimal body function.

☀️The EWG list helps me to know which products absolutely need to be organic and how to clean the products that are not organic.

☀️Unfortunately, we will spend money somewhere, either for health or illness. So we need to choose wisely.

Welcome to the seventh week (April 12-18) in the #SoulfulSunday​ series where we take a deep dive into Lysa TerKeurst’s 60-day devotional book: Made to Crave God, Not Food.

This series taps into the spiritual component of Living At Your Finest Holistic Health where I summarize 7 days of devotion on Sundays during a live stream. We have 1 Sunday left in the 60-day devotion.

Hope you will join me and share your thoughts on ways we can Lean On God and Not Food. #Healthiertogether​. Thanks in advance.
