Not So Simple
V alued greatly is each passing
second of the moments which we shared.
A s I stop and think of what
transpired since our first introduction,
L ady Luck must truly have
been smiling upon me on that day.
E ntering into conversations
where we spoke honestly of ourselves,
N ever too fearful of
exposing our hearts to one another,
T reasures of who we are were
discovered and explored.
I n her I found an innocent
charm, a quiet beauty, a selfless soul
N ever fond of hearing
herself described as "so unlike the rest".
E ach time she thought
"I am not meant to be loved or with anyone,"
K now this, I would
say..."You are so wrong, so deserving of a total love."
I nside, she
possessed a tremendous heart but also a shy, subdued passion
S urfacing as a tender,
caring warmth that is shared with so many.
S till, within her smoldered
a greater love known only to one,
E xperienced as a priceless
gift, and never taken for granted.
S imple and plain? Only
in her own thinking. She's not so simple to me!
