When you wake up very morning,
Who did you see lying beside you?
Is it LOVE or regret?
Is it a LOVER or stranger?
Is it a MIRACLE or mistake?
Is it GRATITUDE or lack ?
Did you take time to see the beautiful angelic face/s?
Sleeping snoring so peacefully unaware you watching him/her/them?
At that moment,can you forgive words unspoken?
Forgive the emotional turbulences
Forgive the mistakes done
Forgive yourself for bringing this beautiful existence that create chaos
Forgive yourself for the beautiful messes
Forgive yourself for the raging hormones
Forgive yourself for the colourful tantrums and bad hair days
Forgive yourself for very bad anger management
Forgive yourself and everyone in the world
… for the sake of LOVE
And be grateful for that moment
That special NOW moment
That LOVE who has been with you through out the years
That LOVE who fought wars with you and is prepared for more battles
That LOVE who sacrificed body, mind, heart and soul to make sense of LiFE together with you
That LOVE who has no control and cannot be controlled
That LOVE who creates magic moments spontaneously in your life
That LOVE who tickles you silly when it seems the world has been unkind to you
That LOVE who seeks your love and affection in so many tender ways
That LOVE who shares your 3 layers of gelato (chocolate mango pistachio) in every sweet moment created
That LOVE who opens your heart and cuddles you when you are wounded and LOVE was nowhere to be found
That LOVE who silently be with you in moments when words creates no solace
That LOVE needs no introduction
LOVE who shadows you everywhere you go
Lights up the dark alleys of your life
Guiding you to best choices of your life
That LOVE who turns on the switch and let LOVE oozes out of you whenever you see her/his smile
So who are you sleeping with,
Everyday of your life?
LOVE or regret?
