Challenges

Sitting here
As I watch the leaves fall from a tree
I see one particular blossom
Withstanding the breeze
Similar 2 u & me.
A love like no other.
When faced with the not so good times…
We find a way to hold on
& Somehow…
We become closer .
Our Love for one another…
At times…
Viewed to be too intense.
Its constantly said that
We are too in to one another.
But no one could possibly understand.
To them
When faced with challenges….
Visions impaired
Things become…
Impossible 2 see.
They automatically assume…
That there is no escaping.
But U & I …
With God
With the strength of our love
Are able 2 Knock down walls
Not focused on living a perfect life
Always ready for the unexpected.
2gether we can withstand anything
What’s life…
Without a little struggle?
Because when we overcome our challenges
We can reminisce…
On everything that has helped pull us through
Wife…
I am so thankful for you!
You are embedded in my heart
& will never fade away
I love the fact after all these years…
You still make me feel this way!
Extraordinary.

  1. Wow that’s beautiful! Almost brings me to tears, that is how love and marriage should be. May God continue to bless you and your wife and see you through every mountain you all climb and may it continue to bring the two of you closer as time goes by!

  8. What a lovely poem dedicated to your wife! “Not focused on living the perfect life.” I love this sentence. Also, the way you end with one word… “Extraordinary.” Truly feels that way 🙂

  9. As lovers
    We keep the soil rooted
    To this earth
    And when the wind sways
    Us a waltz,
    We do not blow away.

  13. Dear Craig

    your words are so endearing and beautiful.
    I specially liked the lines…
    “What’s life…
    Without a little struggle?
    Because when we overcome our challenges
    We can reminisce…”

    beautiful… I enjoyed reading this and thanks for sharing here…
