There’s a place so powerful
A place that feels like live electricity
A place where excitement and expectation breeds
A place where no force in the universe can stop you
Where you are convinced, persistent and determined
The force of hope inside you drives you
This place is a place of immovable faith.
There is a place that is so powerful
A place where you can not imagine that it is possible to make it through another day
A place where all logic, all reality and all sanity screams so loud you have no idea why you don’t just listen
A place where doubt and despondency stands as giants before you
And at times it seems you have no idea what is driving you
This is a place of immovable faith
Now faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see
What if you hold on just a little bit longer?
What if you don’t give up just yet?
You can do it… just one more day
And you tell yourself that tomorrow again
Healing, breakthrough, victory, inventions, love stories, miracles, life, dreams fulfilled, obstacles ovetcome, books written, dept paid, prayers answered…
And that is a place so powerful
If my love for you could be a sunrise, I would choose it to be the sunrise on your toughest day… so that its light, warmth and beauty can give you hope as you wake up to it and it displays its glorious colours.
If my love could be a flower, I would choose it to be a common flower that you see everywhere. So that you can’t go far without being aware of it and it displays that it is ever present.
If my love for you could be a tree, I would choose it to be a tree with the deepest routes. So that it will display that its immovable and will survive in the toughest of circumstances.
Love will endure
Love will heal
Love is the greatest
And I love that I can love you.
And you have stared so long at the desolated land…
And all you see is the black ashes of everything consumed by the destruction life holds…
But you forget, under ground hope is alive. New fresh greens are waiting to burst forth through the death now visible.
And then it happens… the first bright green stem, spectacularly framed by black.
It was there, all along… just waiting for the rain.
My love… hope is alive… and I am so glad you finally got some light, some life, some hope…
I celebrate with you, 7/7/17… no coincidence there… you received your acceptance as a refugee.
You finally got your papers…
Now build your life further…
Nothing can stop you…
Forgive and live.
Life is truly beautiful.
