Quiet Storm

by Nikki R. Holmes

You snuck up on me stealing my heart 
like a thief in the night. 
I tried to deny and ignore it, 
pretend it didnít matter with all my might. 
My feelings were so strong 
that my insides felt like a quiet storm. 
It was weird and very far from the norm. 
It started with small pit pats that soon grew to thumps, 
that was the sound my heart made. 
From the first time you said the words I Love You 
my skies have been sunny and blue, 
it warmed and tickled me to the bone 
because I felt the same way about you. 
I hope this feeling last with no troubles or strife. 
I give you my all itís no big sacrifice. 
Donít think itís something small and measly, 
me giving you my all you make so very easy. 
Itís a fact that you give it back. 
For so long my heart was a prisoner 
behind my wall of pain, then you came along. 
Your constant support and everlasting words of comfort 
and encouragement all made me strong 
gone are the days filled with rain and sad songs. 
With you Iím not afraid to be myself 
or make mistakes you never make me feel ashamed. 
Some days I wondered how you managed to fight 
through all of my past baggage and pain. 
You listened, gave me your hand to hold 
and a shoulder for support. 
You were there for me when all of me 
wasnít able to be there for myself. 
You kept telling me that soon 
all my darkness would be light.  
For every wrong others had done 
you made up with two rights. 
Iíll never forget the many nights 
we talked until the sun rose. 
You were always unselfish and caring 
thatís why youíre the man I chose. 
I want to walk down that aisle, 
I want to be your wife, 
and with you Iím ready to spend the rest of my life.
