In the Space that Belongs to you

Angel and Anaya
In the space that belongs to you I have placed your soft blankets.
I put my love there
and my tears.

In the space that belongs to you I have hung rainbows.
I place my kisses there
and sweet "I love you's"

In the space that belongs to you your puppy plays.
Her softness there
and wet kisses.

In the space that belongs to you I have seen rainbow sunsets.
I see your beauty there
and my own.

In the space that belongs to you I am safe and comforted.
I feel your love there
and I am whole.

In the space that belongs to you there are no walls.
Children play and the sun shines
seeing the joy that is your soul.

The space that belongs to you isn't a place.
It's a love and a memory- the smiles and tears on my face.

I see you everywhere Anaya, and I know that it's true.
You've always loved me, as much as I loved you.

Love and Happiness

Love. How do you explain love to someone who's never experienced it? What is love?

It is an opening. A deep understanding of the root of life, on a subconcious level. It is beauty. Beauty like that which you have never seen with your eyes nor heard with your ears. It is a connection, a knowingness. It is seeing yourself reflected in another, and knowing your own inner beauty. It is a strength. A strength that wells up in the core of your being. A mighty power of will that cannot be defeated. It is vulnerability, but not weakness. It is courage and freedom, and innocence. It is Fierceness and joy. The leap of faith that takes the Eagle off the mountaintop into the sky soaring amongst the clouds into the twilight of the sun.

It is acceptance. It is joy. It is sadness. It is what makes life worth living. It is something that can never be taken from you. It is what I feel inside.

Happiness is not a place you can be travel to. It is not something that can be bought. Or sold. It is a spiritual experience attained through living each moment with love, grace and gratitude.

Anaya, I love you. Thank you for teaching me to live my life with Love. And for teaching patience. And compassion. Because of your teaching I often walk the path of happiness, even when I miss you.
