Earlier this week I asked if anyone would like to share a poem with me about Love and all that encompasses it. The idea was inspired by my recent song ‘A Love You Won’t Find Twice’ and I was intrigued to hear other peoples take on the idea of a once in a life time love.
I’m starting off with a poem by Des Wilson, a really great friend of mine and a women I find extremely inspirational! She is a total free spirit and a bad ass boss woman (being the COO of Freck) Thanks Des and all the others I will be posting throughout the week, for sharing your words with me.

I’ve been staring out your window for two whole days
Wondering if you’ll come back
And if un-phased

Sometimes it takes people to show you who’ve become
To help you guide yourself out of the dim
To help you grow a green thumb

To show you what beauty is and what it is not
To take you around without a blind spot

To make sure you miss nothing, even when it’s miles away
To make you never want to leave and always want to stay

To hold you steady when it’s windy and watch you run when it’s still
To promise someday to take you to a windmill

To support you when you fall, emotionally and actual
Because that’s what we want to do, it always comes natural

You’re the most fascinating person for which I’ve ever met
The ways you think about details
The things you’ll never let yourself forget

At times I wish I could look through your eyes
The colors, the movements
A kaleidoscope in disguise

Sometimes I look at you and I can’t understand
How someone can be so perfect
It’s like living in a dreamland

Hurting you was the last thing I ever wanted to do
I wish I could take it back
I wish I could undo

I wish I didn’t have to wish anymore
Because wishing is false hope
And I want more

The memory of the pine tree swaying left to right
The squirrel on the top, gathering for his dinner for the night

The sun shadowing in on the side of your neighbour’s house
The clouds passing through like a tourist in a rouse

I never want to leave; I always want to be with you
And when I say forever, I mean forever and true.

– Des Wilson
