Prompt ~ BECAUSE OF YOU

BECAUSE OF YOU


by John Yeo


Because of you,

My life has changed irrevocably

The life that I had,

is now over and gone forever.

We built our lives anew,

Enjoying each other happily,

Our meeting was our launchpad

We will always be happy together.

~

Because of you,

We travelled together affectionately

Never a moment to be sad

With memories forever to treasure.

I’m sure somehow we both knew

We would shape our lives eventually

Taking the good with the bad

Loving each other, whatever.

~

 l hope you will see, 

It’s you I thank for the life that we lead,

because of you.

Today’s prompt ~ NIGHTS IN STARVIEW HEIGHTS 

NIGHTS IN STARVIEW HEIGHTS 

by John Yeo 

The height of happiness is attained

With the antidote to unhappiness,

Contentment with peace of mind maintained.

A water filled oasis on land reclaimed

An umbrella on a rainswept day

The height of happiness is attained.

Found during nights in Starview Heights.

Saturating floodwater safely drained

Fertile soil to grow fresh healthy food

Contentment with peace of mind maintained.

The storm recedes, normality regained,

The sun shines after the constant rain,

The height of happiness is attained

Spending our nights in Starview Heights.
