Looking back... Turning back...

For you JC,

Looking back
I cannot stop myself to count
How much time is wasted
How many days have passed
In my quest for a new home.

A new home of my own

But now,
I just realized
Those moments are not a waste
Those chances and experiences are just
To make me realize
The beauty of what I have found,
a beautiful promise
and
the home that soon will be mine.
yours and mine.

And i would love
To turn back again and again
and look at the past
Just to smile and wave
and say godbye to the hard journey
And thank them for they have made me strong
And equipped me with things that i need
To make that place with you
A HOME!

  5. A beautiful poem, JJ, and so true—wasted moments are never wasted. If nothing else, they provide contrast.
    Thanks for sharing the list of wonders. So happy for you about the underground river, and I'm also delighted to see Iguazu Falls. I saw a TV show about this waterfall on the border of Argentina and Brazil, and I was so impressed.
    Wishing you peace and contentment.

  10. Your words humble me, JJ but I love them.
    Looking forward to a joyous future with you by my side always, gazing back only briefly to make sure the ones we love are with us all the way.
