This Beautiful Thing

thing-called-love

it started off small
like a tiny blip
on the horizon
unknown and unimaginable;

gazing into the darkened sky,
hands grabbing to reach the stars
I followed the mysterious
sign near the horizon;

unaware of the impending change
I came closer and closer
wanting to know more
yet trying to remain at a distance;

as the cold wind blew across my face
a calmness came over my senses
opening my eyes to a beauty
that I only dreamed of;

so many things cross my mind,
yet when I close my eyes,
I see nothing else except
the beauty that I saw in you;

as the sun set on the new world
memories of yesterday fade away
only to be replaced by this
beautiful thing called “love”;
