“I Want”

0

I had an interesting conversation with my mother this week regarding gratitude and the phrase “I want”, which immediately led me to 11:11 and making wishes as a child.

Worth The Wait   Wait for me, My love. I know the days are long, And the nights are cold, But wait for me. I know it would be easy, To wrap yourself in another’s embrace, To fill the void of a now empty space, But wait for me. I know it seems like the day Our paths will cross […]
