I reached a bend in my path one crazy night and I stood there, wondering about what to do. I was trying to think but there was a buzzing in my head. Remember that night in your bed? The rain was pouring so hard, it wouldn’t let me think. There I was at that bend in the road, thinking about that rainy night and how I wished there was a button to muffle the sound of the rain.
You see, I’m very comfortable where I am now. I really don’t want to move. Yet you told me, “Comfortable does not necessarily mean happy,” and I knew you were right.
The road ahead, however, scares me. I don’t know what’s across. Will you be there waiting for me?
You do know that for you, I’d take a chance but I cannot help the way this uncertainty puts lead on my shoes. One heavy step at a time, I make the journey. Don’t blame me if I often look back. My past is a safe harbor. My present is a test of courage. My future is a dream about you.
It’s just that when I was mapping out my destination, I didn’t foresee bumping into you. If I did, I would have donned an armor heavy enough to deflect your charms. As it is, you caught me like a deer in the headlights; my instincts screamed at me to run but I paid no heed for I was transfixed by your allure.
I blame your smile. It’s what drives me off course. Yet every time I get lost thinking about it, it’s worth it. No other smile has made me as happy. I would gladly cross oceans to see it up close.
Because you see, that smile takes me to happy places. It brings back a memory of myself finding a meadow of purple wild flowers as a child. That was a magical moment of discovery and good surprises. I thought I’d never feel that way again but I did when I saw you smile.
