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.

Hey, Health Champions ❤️

I hope you had a restful weekend. Mine was active, I feel like I need another weekend to recover from this weekend.

Anyway, still grateful for all the activities but I need to be more mindful of how I can recharge my battery. Anyone with me?

I hope this video helps you as it is helping me to strategize on the best way to recharge my batteries. The goal is to
👉Remove energy drainers
👉Replace with energy boosters
so we can take control and stay in charge of our bodies, minds, and spirits.

How are you going to stay charged up this week? I hope you would share. #HealthierTogether #sharingiscaring

Hey, Health Champions ❤️

#HappyMonday. Dr. Babs here for our weekly #mondaymotivation

What do you mean by the golden opportunities hidden within negative circumstances? I must confess this can be tough without setting apart a time for reflection and acceptance. There is always a silver lining in every situation, we just need to search for it.

🌟🌟There are no FAILURES in life, just LESSON LEARNED. 🌟🌟

So to be able to LIVE AT YOUR FINEST; WHOLE, VIBRANT, & HEALTHY, you need to let go of the NEGATIVE thoughts around your health and wellness regardless of setbacks and embrace a POSITIVE mindset through which our energy flows and our bodies perform.

You've got this.....we have got this together. #healthiertogether.
