Finding Wonderland

I vividly remember the day I met you, a late Friday afternoon
So unexpected and under strange circumstances
I fell apart while opening my heart and you caught me
For the first time, in a long time, I felt safe and protected

You told me, “Stop carrying around this heavy heart
It hurts in the moment, but it hurts, even more, to hold on
Give your mind, body, heart, and soul a break.  Let it go my dear”

One door closes, and five more open
That’s how the Universe works
We know we met for a reason
But we don’t know where it will take us

We live in between the space of knowing and unknowing
After all, that’s where all the good stories are
As we know, our stories are definitely good ones
Yes there’s uncertainty ahead, but let’s leave the unanswered questions behind

I want to run away with you and only you
Sharing delicious food and sipping fantastic wine
While sitting Oceanside under a lemon tree in Italy
Lemons are a symbol of healing and cleansing both physically and spiritually
Yellow promotes hope, happiness, abundance, and vitality
All the main ingredients in any successful relationship

The other night, I asked you to paint me a poem
“About what?” you asked
“Anything, that’s the beauty of poetry and art. Do what inspires you”
You said, “A painting is something seen rather than felt, and poetry is something felt rather than seen. Therefore, I see you and feel you”

Love, the very thing that made me die inside before
And now, love, the very thing that makes me feel alive when I’m with you
The fire inside burns brighter and stronger than the fire around me
I want to die young, as late as possible as long as I’m  with you

This breakthrough made me feel for the first time in a long time
My heart is smiling and I feel like I’m in Wonderland
Sometimes the life we want isn’t the life we get because the Universe has something better in store for us
Trust the journey that lies ahead, be open to what’s next, and know that everything happens for a reason

I guess the Madhatter was right all along
“The secret Alice is to surround yourself with people who make your heart smile.  It’s then, only then that you’ll find Wonderland”

Much Love,

Jen ❤

    • Hi Rob, thanks so much for your comments I actually got inspired by that quote and it went from there. I think Wonderland is a continuous search whether real or not 😉 I’m still in discovery mode for it. Glad you’re having a nice summer ☀️ stay cool 😎
