Better Half

Better Half

Two simple words
Implying so much
So inadequate
They don’t begin to touch

A truth so plain
If only you’d see
How profound
What you mean to me

All my Life
There’s been only you
Before we met
And physically knew

Since that moment
Now long ago
For you alone
My Love doth grow

In your eyes
Mysteries unwound
All reason denied
No logic sound

Without all’s lost
With, all’s placed
Once Heaven’s delight
Now Earth you’ve graced

Such Joy you bring
So Loving also
To the ends of the Earth
I’d willingly follow

Beautiful in every way
There is none to compare
Not any other Soul
This Life I’d prefer to share

Perfection personified
No better match exists
Heart, mind, body, & Soul are yours
‘til each and every one desists

“Better half” just doesn’t convey
the emotions so deeply hewn
my Friend, my Angel, my Soulmate
my One & Only, of vision & future shewn

I am a Writer and Poet, Construction Worker with a Union, would be Organic Farmer, Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, and a few others. I would like to add a few more; Husband, father, .... the list will grow! I am currently working on personal growth, publishing my first book, becoming a Journeyman in the Carpenters Union, learning more of Gardening and Green things, and embracing Life as it comes! Life and Love are only as easy as we allow them to be, but are ever present, when we are ready to embrace them! Time is a tricky, devious thing, and Life is never easy. Nor should it be, the challenge is how we grow! While ever developing mentally and Spiritually over the last decade, The "obstacles to progress" are morphing into challenges to be met, and are ever changing. Such is the amazing Wonder that is Life, as we Learn, as we Grow! Too much structure is at the very heart of institutionalization, and not enough is the path to chaos. Learning that balance I believe is a Life-long challenge. One of many, as balance(s) is(are) ever changing too! All the while (and, as we ALL are...), I am, have been, and continue to be, so very Blessed!! Divine Providence, the "Finger of God", or even a reference to "Footprints"; all and more apply! The Energy of Life is all around us! Creating, Energizing, Healing, Invigorating! Life feeds the Energy of Life! Call It/Them how/by/what you will... Their presence and influence in and upon my Life has been amazing, and I could not, and would not, be who or where I am (NONE of us would/could be), without Them! Divine Providence, Creators/Masters of the multi-verse, the Spark of Life, the Energy that Nourishes, Higher Power, whatever/however you so choose to acknowledge our own smallness in the Universe! Without Their Love, Their Guidance, we are lost. We are sick, we are incomplete, when we lack the Faith to Heal and be Whole! I am growing, and Healing, and Learning, and am greatly in need thereof. But I AM growing, and Healing, and Learning! And so the Light "at the end of the tunnel" Shines ever bright! And Day by Day, I struggle, to be better than I was the day before, and to be prepared to be even better tomorrow! Hallelujah! Aloha! Namaste! As-Salàmu Àlaykum! Peace!
