Once in a lifetime
something special happens.
It's a miracle
which cannot be ignored.
It's a miracle that cannot be explained.
For some reason the air
is filled with a special magic.
Colors are a bright, vibrant hue
which spin dizzily around,
blending into a white light.
The world seems larger
and more beautiful
Hearts sing a melody which
only the soul understands.
The air is filled
with the sound of a thousand trumpets.
Yet, every note of the bird's song
is heard more sweetly than before.
Every dream is fast
becoming a reality.
All is at peace -
the mind with tranquil visions of tomorrow,
the heart with its melodic song,
the soul with its newfound existence.
Yet at the same time, the
world is filled with wild,
The blood courses faster.
The mind reels.
The blood is aflame with the touch
of your eyes.
The brush of your hand.
There is a remembering of your essence and a dream of old
that brings me to now.
For I am finally home.
There is but one word to describe this,
it is called love.
That precious gift, which so few find,
and those who do
find it once in a lifetime.
I know this to be true,
for my once in a lifetime
happened the day I met you.

The Virgo Rising
By Lori Lines
You charge into my life so fierce even though the welcome mat took its time to reach your feet
You bore your passion through my heart
I bled as it burned into my core
You pushed your way past my fear and resistance
Until I gave in and opened myself up to you
You filled me up and carved words into me that spoke of hope and togetherness - "a love that is meant to be"
"The real thing"
"That which songs are inspired"
Joyful, all lit up, deeply fulfilled in its irridescence
I gave myself over and you drank every last drop of me
Our love was so passionate, so sweet, so fierce, so fun, so innocent, yet so real
Beyond my own expectations
Touched in ways I've never known
Yet somehow I remember
You never had your appetite grow as I fed your hunger with every fiber of my being
To know what life brings, no matter what the complications, you letting me go was never a thought in my mind
For we were so strong, so real, when we could feel this wild, crazy, unknown energy from within
From the depth of our hearts and in true form
Your life spiraled the way it was not intended
Your brokenness and fearful knots in your heart shielded me
Allowing darkness to penetrate our light
Slamming the door
Forgetting love heals everything
Throwing away hope
Stabbing my heart while I hold the punctures - my fingers covered in our blood
And the blood keeps pouring out no matter what I do
My best friend
My partner in crime
And then I die.
Yet something miraculous
I see a spark within
I have risen and decide to live
Alone yet connected
I see the dawn
And here I am, transformed again
I walk in the light
I begin anew
With a bigger love emanating from my being
And all I can think to say is, "Thank you."

In out-of-the-way places of the heart
where my thoughts never think to wander
This new beginning has quietly been forming
waiting until I am ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched my desire
feeling the emptiness forming inside me
noticing how I willed myself on
Still unable to leave what I've outgrown.
It watched me play with the seduction of safety
and the grave promises that sameness whispered
heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent
wondered, would I always live like this?
Then the delight when my courage kindled
and out I stepped onto new ground
My eyes young again with energy and dream
a path of plenitude opening before me.
Though my destination is not yet clear
I can trust the promise of this opening
Unfurl myself into the grace of beginning
that is One with my life's desire.
I Awaken my spirit to adventure,
hold nothing back
Learning to find ease in risk
soon I will be home in a new rhythm
For my soul senses the world that awaits me.

To the Magician
I pray you one day
How you touched my life
on the journey to who I am
I pray one day
you will know
How truly special you are
that even on the darkest nights
you've been my brightest star
I pray one day
you will fully comprehend
How you made my dreams come true
that opened my heart again
after severe heartbreak
to the wonders that love can do
I pray one day you'll know
you've allowed me to experience
something very rare to find
Another soulmate love that exists
in my body, soul, and mind
I pray one day you will feel
the kind of love I have to give
but I'm sure you'll never realize
you've been my will to live
I pray one day you'll see
how amazing you are
without you I don't know where I'd be
For having you in my arms
completed and fulfilled every part of me.
