"Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can." -Richard Bach


It’s a simple moment,
a simple phrase,
that makes you turn your head,
makes you look him in the eyes
and smile,
with sincerity.
It’s so simple,
yet somehow it takes so long,
so many moments,
so many words,
to add up to that one.

When you can look at him;
when you can smile at his grin;
and believe in more
than just yourself.
Believe in two,
belonging together
forever.

You know it will change your life;
you know it can never be the same;
and you want that change.
You are ready for it,
ready for everything the future holds.
With two hands
never letting go.

It’s a simple moment,
a simple phrase;
that makes you turn your head;
that makes you repeat the words
back to his heart.
It’s so simple,
yet somehow it takes so long,
so many moments,
so many words,
so many silences,
to add up to that one.

When you can look him in the eye;
when he can look you in the eye;
and you both know:
that it will change your life.
You know it will never be the same,
and you want that change.
You are ready for it,
ready to be together
forever.

this is really good!!  I love how it created in my mind the picture of two people ready, knowing this was meant and their not just doing it without thinking or praying.  I don't like how there are so many divorces in the world now days.  It is not a good influence on kids, and it creates so many broken hearts!  As teenagers, I believe we need to start making the right choices, create the role models that the generation before us may not have provided.  My parents have been together for 26 years and will be for many years to come, but my paternal grandparents are divorced, this shows that there is hope for change even from a child who is in a split family.  Again-I love the poem!  keep it up!!
