Just another day

I put my hand on my chest and I can feel my heart pounding
I close my eyes and I can hear myself breathing
I take a minute to really look at the beautiful small things that life gives me everyday
Wind making trees dance
A love song talking to me
Writing a soulful poem
I just want to take a minute to really understand that I’m here right now
I am on the words that I write
I am on the happy and sad memories that my mind pulls out without permission
Feeling the fragrance of a flower that was thrown out in the middle of the street by some stranger
A sad flower that needs to be taken care of
Needing someone to come to the rescue with a song
But now I am here and…
I start missing those moments that took my breath away
I was right next to you…who would have thought?
Trying to understand that each day is an opportunity to realize how amazing small things are
Trying to understand that every second must be lived to its fullest because there is never turning back
I am right here, right now…and I can’t stop thinking of you
And if you wonder what I’ve learned
Well, I truly learned that this is not just another day

New Year

And here we are! Writing down another page of a wonderful story
Red, violet, yellow fireworks paint our sky
Laughter invades our homes
Champagne is there for us to welcome another chance to start from scratch
No regrets, no tears, no past shadows
It’s all about feeling alive and grateful for all the adventures coming up
Red, violet, yellow fireworks paint my heart with new hopes
Discovering new places,falling in love, seeing new faces, and asking a thousand questions
Let’s just open our eyes to see how beautiful fireworks sketch new simple stories of a precious life
Let’s be grateful for each breath, each broken heart, each mistake, each sad flower, each smile…
Let’s love more, let’s laugh more, and let’s make each other insanely happy.
Happy New Year!
