Sometimes Love Finds You

Sometimes love finds you

when you least expect it

when you stop looking

when you stop trying

and sometimes when you stop remembering

what you thought love should be.

It is then a window opens

and you are caught on the breeze

that rushes in, swirling around you

leaving you forever changed.

What you know from that day

is that everything else

was just pretend

and all the things you felt before

were nothing compared with this.

It is not perfect,

nor does it expect perfection.

It may not be

what others would have it be

but it will last

through time and distance

because of what it gives

and does not take.

When this love comes

it will slide into place

like two hands

that have always been together.

  1. Seems your words always come right on time, in the right place, straight to me! right when i need to hear them; for a purpose. i thank you for sharing them with the world; but most of all, i thank you for sharing them for me. (sounds selfish – i know) beautiful and truthful words you have shared with me this evening; as i had almost forgotten such . . . as always, peace, light and love. . . cordieb.
