To the mistakes of my past

 

To the one who didn’t let me in,

You taught me not to settle for less than I’d always dreamed about.

To the one who thought only of himself,

You taught me that being a decent person is thinking of others even if it means giving up what you want.

To the one who didn’t know what the truth was,

You taught me to follow my instincts no matter what my head argued.

To the one who didn’t know what fidelity was,

You taught me that no matter what, I would never become as careless with others as you were.

To the one who simply didn’t see me,

You taught me to take a closer look and make certain I didn’t miss anything that someone had to offer.

All the pain and mistakes of the past have created the person I am today.

The depth and endurance of sadness and regret in our pasts, teaches us what real love should and can be, it teaches us humility and empathy.

I cannot regret the way others have treated me in my past, those regrets should be theirs and theirs alone.

Echoes

Every breath has me remembering the taste of your mouth.

Every touch is feeling the echo of your skin brushing against mine.

 

Every smile has me seeing the curve of your lips.

Every thought has me wondering what you would think.

 

Every laugh makes me want to share it with you.

Every night is filled with the longing to hold you.

 

Everything I am is missing everything in you.
