it’s different with you.
like watching a storm roll in from a balcony on the beach.
safe and sound.
huddled together in the warmth of our own company,
watching the chaos unfold.
waves can crash.
we’re okay here.
nowhere to be, nowhere to go, no-one to bother us.
just the peace in knowing you’re next to me
it’s funny how the people we come to love
seem to fall from the sky
and land right in front of us.
and how easily we can forget the beauty of knowing
that someone loves us
for who we are.
birds come to sit with us
keeping a watchful eye.
my dad always said that birds are God’s messengers,
and He watches you through their eyes
checking to make sure you’re okay.
but we’re okay.
maybe we were destined to meet
like old souls from another time and place
meeting once more
rather than meeting for the first time,
as if we recognised each other
the moment we locked eyes.
and what beautiful eyes you have
holding me captive, never letting me leave.
i would happily die gazing at you
drowning in the colour
sleeping in the warmth
perhaps it does not do well
to dwell on things like destiny
but in a world filled with messy, noisy chaos,
who is to say what goes?
there are too many coincidences
to ever really know.
if we’re all made from the same materials
reused over and over again by the earth,
up from dust and dirt and grime
perhaps we have known each other before?
parts of the same flower
the same ocean, the same person.
and fate is a funny thing
that refuses to give up her secrets.
but maybe not every question needs an answer
when you’re in love.
this world is full of mysteries
and you’re my favourite one.
