I wrote this poem Sunday, September 16, 2007

When illusions fade and fantasies subside

Peaceful breezes as the moments fade

How did reality become better than the fantasy?

How did I not see this coming?

I question everything that comes my way

Never knowing I deserve what riches come my way

Trying to stay present in the moment

Staying where I am and not looking aside

Wandering eyes in moments of peace

Why tempt with fate when reality is enough

Why doubt who you are

When who you are is enough

I know not how it happened

Why I am happy and content with another

Why do I have to ask why?

Why not just be.

I choose to let go

To let it take me on the ride

Be present and in the moment

Allow myself for once to feel
