My Baby Blue Eyes
I was a small town girl with big dreams in store, a small town girl with looks entirely different from yours, and in a game of probability, what were the odds that i would have you, my baby blue eyes? chances are, it’s one in a million and i might not have even been part of that one million
for there are over a hundred million beautiful women in the planet who I knew then for sure existed, and in that over a hundred million beautiful women, I might not have even been part of it yet, as I literally lived on the other side of your world, and in a game of probability, what were the odds that i would have you , my baby blue eyes?
but by some universal powers, we did not just meet, we fell in love and not just fell in love, we fell hopelessly, romantically, deeply in love, and the moment, the moment you laid your blue eyes on mine, my world stopped, my heart fluttered, my mind went crazy I knew then it was you, it was you I wanted to spend the rest of my life with
it wasn’t easy though, as some foolish people tried to break us apart maybe because of your totally amazing blue eyes, or it could also be my total brown eyes, they said we were diffirent of course we are, there’s no denying but our differences made us completely compatible, amazing how we could be different yet the same
its been many years, my love, and in those many years we’ve witnessed the growth of our love, our love that has become stronger each passing day, and i can’t help but wonder, did the universe conspire for us to be together? or were we concieved and born for each other?
my love, the answer lies in the eyes of two beautiful halves, two souls, two lives born out of love, of two different people from two different worlds apart joined by fate, by destiny, by love or maybe, yes maybe we were indeed really born for each other
for that, I thank God for the day we were born for each other
I chose to share this song along with my poem because I believe love in any form/s remains to be the best “icon”, the best symbol humanity has ever had over the years. And songs as well as poems are and will forever be one of the greatest expressions of love.
“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
– Ashley Smith
I believe in dreams, and I see the good in even the worst situation; I think these are the traits that put me to where I am today. I never stop dreaming, and I dream the biggest dreams, I also never stop believing that something good will ever happen out of even the messiest, most terrible situation.
2020 started with a big bang for us as a family. I remembered we were in Bali for the holidays then. It was one of the most unforgettable travels we’ve ever made as a family.
Then pandemic happens.
There was already a rumor about a certain virus, even back in December 2019; but we just dismissed the idea (I am sure everybody did).
But, barely three months after, the inevitable happened.
The world stopped (literally).
In the course of the first three months, our lives changed. Travelling became impossible (until it became restricted), work became difficult (until others lost their jobs), everyone became sick (until others died, may they rest in peace). Social distancing became the new norm and, online communications/transactions became the new trend to keep updated and be posted.
While the world was/is in agony and while humanity was/is in a war over the deadliest and most contagious virus our generation ever had encountered, I kept my hope and my silence in the comfort of my room – writing. My poetry and blogger and writer friends have been my constant companion (aside of course from my loving family) all these months.
Pandemic happens. And it gave birth to the “best of me”. My first international poetry submission happened during the pandemic and so is my first ebook, ” After Rain Skies” (a spin-off sort of, of my physical book “After Rain Skies: A Million Stars”). I did not allow the pandemic to topple down my spirit, much more allow my muse to wander along. ” After Rain Skies” was received so well by the online reading community, that I had to follow it up immediately with another ebook, “What If Snowflakes Don’t Fall in Winter?”. It was released via KOBO yesterday, and I am very proud and very happy to share with you all that on its first day it went on the “trending list’, in all three categories to which the book belongs: 1. Trending in ebook, 2. Trending in Fiction and Literature and 3.Trending in Romance.
I’d like to thank you all for the love and support you have given me and my poetry since 2013. WordPress has been and will always be my writing family. I have made friends here and I have met a few too from WordPress and it’s really wonderful. You have been my constant writing companion. Your honest and kind words of encouragement helped me the poet that I am now. I will forever be grateful to you. For some of you who have purchased my ebooks, you would know that I dedicated a page for the list of WP friends there to thank.
you walked past by me wearing a dashing smile with the sun so hot and up, but the air was cool could it be, because of your easy-breezy presence, I was beguiled? or was it just me feeling the numbness of my senses I could drool?
your smile I can’t forget and your laughter I can’t resist baby take me in your arms and hold me all the time ‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist please kiss me, undress me, make me yours it’s not a crime
the next thing they knew you and I were inseparable, profoundly connected we were like two people beating in perfect harmony as one the world was only ours to live and friends said “it’s expected” ‘cos even without a word the universe will conspire to agree, “it’s done”
it feels like Christmas with you beside me all the time the joys and laughter we share each day long makes it always look like a holiday season perfect anytime the sweet little nothings make our bond greater and strong
now I keep thinking of you and what to do with our life as we kissed for there is so much forever waiting for my dear, a forever in time ‘cos I don’t wanna live another day without you, I insist please kiss me, undress me, make me yours it’s not a crime
it’s been many years and many Christmases, my dear but time has not robbed my feelings for you, I still love you tight it will forever be like that, oh so hot but cool morning, I swear
the first time I laid eyes on you, I knew I loved you

If I am to live for another 45 years,
I’d spend it writing poetry about you
and let me start by saying
this brings me back to the day
I first met you
I was bewitched and totally beguiled by you
from that day on forward
I could never take away
your charm in my head
least I know
it has taken
not only of my mind
but of my heart
and my soul longs for you
for as magical
and whimsical as it is I was totally beguiled and bewitched by you
