A Day to Pause...

Today was the day
I looked about and saw the sky;
The world, everything around me
In a whole new way.

It started just the same
As every other 24 hours
Another X on the calendar,
Just more time ticking gone and came.

But like day to night
I met you
So sudden and unexpected
It all went from black to white.

My stars had aligned
My toast stopped falling
Butter side down
An explanation I could not find.

How could I explain this
To any a passer-by?
How my heart beat so;
This was to me God's kiss.

I looked into your guise
I listened to your voice
I felt the very depths of your soul
I smelled and tasted salty tears from my eyes.

Time finally stopped its tick tock
I was no longer confined
To the march of life's parade
I finally found someone with whom to walk.

Who knew living was
I can exhale now; next to you
Life gave me a day to pause…

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
