Fated

Poetry

“I’m not sure words can express
how lucky I feel to be yours.”

It was your determination that drew me in. Your confidence. It was the words you spoke when you promised that giving us a try wasn’t going to end with disaster. It was the devotion afterward. The way you wouldn’t give up. That you kept proving again and again that it was the right decision. That there were never any regrets. And whenever I asked why you loved me, your answer was always the same.

“Didn’t you know? We were meant to be together.”

I’m not sure words can express how lucky I feel to be yours.

  1. OMG, Sarah!!! I think this is one of your very best!! It teared me up!! I read it to my wife and it teared her up too!! My take on being a writer/poet is “You know you are a poet when your words reach out and touch the heart of your readers”! CRL
    Bellissimo, Sarah, Bellissimo!

    1. Ah, my friend, that means so much to me. I always hope to make my writing as visceral as possible. To really get the emotions from me, to my words, and then to my readers. To know I accomplished that in one of my prose poems is definitely a compliment I will cherish. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š Also, I’m glad your wife felt the same way about this piece. Tell her I say hello. ๐Ÿ˜Š
