There was a time prior that your heart yearned
It yearned for another heart to comfort and call a home
A place with no dryness - where water is not thirsty
And a home where bread loaves are not stones
There was a time you needed comfort from others
Even an unfamiliar shoulder to lean on during trying times and struggles
There was that time you felt love was a distant dream for you
There were happy and sad moments sometimes too
Many times you faced rejection and all you saw were heartbreaks unending
Maybe you spoke to your heart to lock up and love no more
For some, they are now off this stage and some others are still in it
There was that time you had sleepless nights
Worrying over what you now eventually got
There was a time you just get to know people and a time to drift off
The time emotions changes and the time it stays the same
There was a time, and now there is still you who is constant in everything
There was a time you wish for the things you have now
Maybe for some, they haven't gotten it but wait it out
Your "There was a time" would surely come if you tarry still...
We've all had that moment before now. When we were little, we had wishes, when we were growing up, we had so many. The thing is, we have had that moment before now and it's a reminder for us to know that certain moments won't always stay forever so we have to keep fighting to get what we want and then fight to hold on to what we've got. That's how life works. It's not for pity party but for those who are willing to understand the dynamics of how life works and then show intentionality to make dreams come true.
There was a time... but there would always be "you" - instant in and out of emotions and seasons... updated...bigger and better for it. The "you" that walked into a storm won't be the same that comes out. You become better for it.

Thank you for your time.
