Coffee ~ Cappuccino

Word ~ Camaraderie

Good Morning beautiful beautiful people of the world, today I want to pose a question to you, what in this vast world of ours makes you smile? Personally, the answer is quite simple, family, warm, sunny weather, close friends, actually, to be honest, today and every day thus far of the last few weeks, my smile has been constantly brought out by one special person specifically. Regardless, today I want to discuss that, what or who makes you smile? what do you find most important in a person? What draws you together? Is it their humor, their sense of class, morals, outward appearance? Either way there are many reasons why we hold dear the special people in our lives. My special person is one who is smart, caring, attentive, awe-strikingly respectful and genuinely beautiful in body, mind and soul. However even beyond all these amazing qualities, the most important factor is that this person is my perfect match and not perfect as in the colloquial definition, but rather, as in my own version of it, someone who makes me happy to be alive. I think that is the key to an amazing relationship. It can never be truly perfect, there will always be rough edges, places where the intricate puzzle pieces can’t seem to impeccably meet, but i believe that there, in those gaps and small opening lies the true beauty of a relationship. A place where hardships arise from, differences are met and obstacles encountered; thats where the true strength and power of your relationship is truly tested. Either way, I am most happy to call this one dear and I have honestly learned a great deal thus far. Life in itself is not as beautiful when you live it alone. Life, its many moments, both positive and negative yearn for a witness. Someone to acknowledge what you are faced with and what you have surpassed. This thought reminds me of one of my most treasured movies, Shall We Dance? with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon, “We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness” (Susan Sarandon).

I cannot begin to describe to you the feeling of a person genuinely loving to love you and wanting to be there to witness life by your side. It is equivalent to the spontaneous combustion of joy, thrill, excitement and warmth, all in one explosion, all within the confines of your body. Simply put, you wake up with a smile each morning and the motivation to last you the entire day only for it to repeat all over again the next morning. Essentially, this person makes up a big part of what brings happiness to my life and that is the point I am trying to make, happiness in my opinion, in general, is essential to fully live life, what do you think?

In continuation, in the spirit of today’s food for thought, I figured I’d share with you a poem I wrote. Have a read and tell me what you think…

To Miss Your Witness

I fell in love with you again and again, day in and day out

Seeing you smile, holding you close, dissipates any trace of doubt

The touch of your lips against mine

The feeling of being with you, breaking every boundary, any separating line

God, how I miss having you by my side

I dwell over and over of the love that is tightly nested in my heart

Remembering all of the feelings, moments and small things that we’ve shared from the start

I clench my pillow and allow myself to be swallowed by my awaiting imagination

A world in which all is as per my own mind’s desired creation

I open my eyes and there you are again, illuminated, in all your glowing light

At the middle, your heart, burning crimson red, sparkling bright

At last, in mind, we are together again

Instantly, I feel my hands running through the depths of your hair

Kissing you a million times absent a single worldly care

Holding you close, your body against mine, laying peacefully on top of me

Switching, my body now on yours and your face in front; the only thing I care to see

Golden brown eyes sparkling and glistening, intently looking back into mine

The slight glow of red brewing in the crevices of your soft cheeks, quietly and innocently shine

And I wake up and realize, that once again, I am missing you all over again


Have a beautiful day and evening,


A Champagne Cheers!
