I lost myself within your eyes,
Our souls entwined much to my surprise
I fell in awe of your wondrous face
a land of eternal beauty and grace;
My restless spirit and stirring soul
seeking freedom, yet so out of control;
A shelter from the storm in you I found
A kindred spirit, to mine eternally bound.
Everything about you so hauntingly familiar:
Our minds in tune, experiences so similar;
The words you spoke came straight from my heart;
What was yours or mine, I could never tell apart.
Your soul mirrored back the love that I felt
In a blissful reality for a while we dwelt;
But old fears and faces found us anew
Love full of hope, now rejected withdrew.
Not knowing why; our souls withered in pain
In an immense void left by love lost again;
Yet undoubtedly here in my poor bleeding heart
Your reflection stayed: unaffected, unharmed.
Sometimes I find myself giving way to memories
Your image, like the sun, forever in my reveries;
The sky, always blue, reminds me of your eyes
You’re the sound the wind makes when something in me dies;
Your love the perpetual shadow that hovers over me,
suspended in space, forcing my captured heart to flee.
But in time came the acceptance of what I knew all along:
the simplest truth of this love so REAL and strong;
In surrender came the relief I so desperately needed,
As to God in my heart I finally pleaded:
May He fill me with this Love if such is His will,
If there’s a plan for me; this I seek to fulfil.
My mind emptied of loss, of wanting control
I release all which keeps me tied to the old.
Fully surrendered, like the wind gently bending the trees,
God’s heavenly Mercy brought me down to my knees;
As I yield to my Creator I humbly touch the floor;
As your love comes to me like the waves to the shore.
There is peace in surrender; in submission, there is joy;
A promise, a certainty God wants us to enjoy;
Of things that are meant to be, when it’s only you and me,
Those dreams we once shared… then become reality.
You are the nearest to Home that I’ve ever been,
You live in my blood; always felt, never seen.
And the Heaven I tasted there in your breath,
May as well haunt me, out of reach, ‘til my death:
For I know no one else will take me to paradise;
For you’re the only One with forever in his eyes.
So let me take your hands; those hands so unsure
We will rise in this Love so sublime and pure;
I will reignite the fire inside you, show you what it is to be desired,
What it is like to be God-bound, in love eternally rewired.

This really spoke to my heart & was truly invigorating to my soul. Everything was so eloquently expressed and the epitome of what I once felt. I absolutely loved reading it.
I cried many tears,
knowing, feeling the words you wrote,
a cry in my heart so deep for
the one and only one in my life,
ever known like this to me,
opening my heart so fast and wide.
The intense pain I felt,
when she panicked and disappeared
all at once.
Thank you for writing what is true.
Dear Matthew, your comment took my breath away. ❤️❤️ Yes, you know, I know… We both know what only the deepest purest love for the one & only can do – in the good and bad, the highs and lows. Love and blessings to you xx Jonna

Our souls speaks in Silence
Can you hear me whisper
As I hear you in the quiet
To feel your heart in mine
As you run away to hide
With Eyes wide shut
I comfort you .
Sending love to hold
Heartfelt , I feel it too
That’s why I’ve been chasing you
My beautiful man in the mirror
We feel the grace of God
Radiate our authentic love
In guidance from above
Our journey is cleansing
A path so rough to smooth
A way the universe intended
We are meant to be together
I know you feel this too
We must trust in each other
We must bear our truth
Until the day of union
To hold you in my arms
To welcome you home
To the safe and calm
For a love so unconditional
I see you face to face
I whisper in your ear
As my soul speaks in Silence
For only you to hear
I love you , I love you .
