12 wishes in 2012

Christmas & New Year text messages are not so common nowadays but of the few I received, there’s one that I would like to live by for the whole of 2012. Special thanks to Kizzy for sending it on New Year’s Eve. 🙂

  1. Sunrise after the darkest of nights.
  2. Friends who bring out the best in you.
  3. A love that makes you smile.
  4. Belief that anything is possible.
  5. Courage to finally do what you’ve been putting off.
  6. Time for yourself.
  7. Promises that are kept.
  8. An answered prayer.
  9. A heart that forgives
  10. A happy feeling everyday.
  11. A soul that heals.
  12. A wonderful life & perfect health.

More words when I find time this week. I’m hitting the sack early tonight… part of my commitment to make a lifestyle change (which is a whole other blog post!).

I am careful to speak of your name…
Lest the angels hear how much I love you
And they decide to tame your heart so
it does not reflect the depths of my passion…
I do not speak of our story…
For fear that every time I utter a word
It would fade away in my memory
And tarnish until both of us cannot remember.
So the whole world spins, unaware
While my entirety keeps itself still
Protected and sheltered in your embrace…
Encased, not within your promises, but within your faith…
