 POEM'S BY A MAUI GIRL

FAITH OR CHANCE


WAS IT BY FAITH OR BY CHANCE, THAT HAS BROUGHT
YOU BACK INTO MY LIFE?
I HAVE NO ANSWER TO GIVE, BUT THIS MUCH I DO KNOW,
I LOVE YOU JUST AS YOU ARE, NO MORE,
 NO LESS WITH EACH PASSING DAY,
 I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU FOR THE
MAN THAT YOU ARE.
UNLIKE ALL OTHERS IT WILL NEVER BE ABOUT WHAT
I CAN GET OR WANT FROM YOU, FOR YOU KNOW THAT
I HAS NEVER BEEN THAT KIND OF PERSON.
WAS IT REALLY BY FAITH OR BY CHANCE, THAT HAS
BROUGHT YOU BACK INTO MY LIFE?
I HAVE NO ANSWER TO GIVE YOU, BUT ONLY HOW I FEEL.
NOW THAT I HAVE YOU THIS IS ALL I WANT FROM YOU,
IS TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO SPEND AND SHARE A LIFETIME WITH YOU.
 BE IT THROUGH GOOD TIMES OR BAD THIS IS ALL
THAT I AM WILLING TO SHARE WITH YOU.
IT WILL ALWAYS BE ABOUT JUST HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU,
 FOR THAT IS WHAT LOVE MEANS TO ME.
AS HARD AS IT IS TO BELIEVE, I PROMISE YOU
THAT'S HOW IT WILL ALWAYS BE FOR ME.
I WANT TO BE THE ONE THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS TRUST AND COUNT ON.
 WHY WOULD IT EVER BE ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE WHEN IT COME'S TO LOVING YOU?
WAS IT REALLY BY FAITH OR BY CHANCE,
 THAT HAS BROUGHT YOU BACK INTO MY LIFE?
I STILL HAS NO ANSWER, BUT THIS MUCH I DO KNOW, COMMUNICATION
IS ALWAYS THE KEY TO ANY SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP.
 THIS I KNOW FOR I HAD TO LEARN THE HARD WAY FROM MAKING
 SO MANY MISTAKES FROM PAST RELATIONSHIPS.
 OLDER AND WISER, WE BOTH HAVE LEARNED THROUGH THE YEARS,
RESPECT, COMPASSION, LOYALTY AND A LOT OF  TRUST.
 TO BE ABLE TO BE OPEN WITH ALL OUR FEELINGS NEVER HOLDING ANYTHING BACK.
 ITS NOT ABOUT BLAMING WHO WAS RIGHT OR WHO WAS WRONG.
 IT'S THE FEEL OF ALWAYS WANTING TO CATCH EACH OTHER BACK,
 THAT MAKES A RELATIONSHIP STRONG.
SO THIS IS ALL THAT I AM ASKING FROM YOU,
 IF I'M GOING TO PLAN TO FINALLY SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH YOU.
WAS IT REALLY FAITH OR WAS IT BY CHANCE, THAT HAS FINALLY
BROUGHT YOU AND I TOGETHER THIS TIME?
IT HAS TAKEN US SUCH A LONG TIME TO HAVE FINALLY
 LEAD US TO THIS PLACE IN OUR LIFE!
I STILL HAVE NO ANSWER TO GIVE TO YOU,
 BUT ONLY THIS I AM ABLE TO TELL YOU,
 BE IT BY FAITH OR BY CHANCE I WANT YOU TO KNOW
JUST HOW THANKFUL AND BLESSED THAT I AM,
 TO HAVE YOU BACK IN MY LIFE ONCE AGAIN.
SO I'M ASKING YOU WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
  AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU I'M STILL FEELING UNSURE.
  FOR IT HAS BEEN OVER 30 YEARS SINCE THE
LAST TIME WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER.
  ALL I CAN SAY IS HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU,
 SO TELL ME, DO WE LEAVE IT TO FAITH AND CHANCE ONCE AGAIN?
HOPING AND PRAYING THAT LIFE WILL GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME?
I KNOW WHAT I'M FEELING AND LOVING YOU FEELS SO RIGHT,
 THAT I JUST DON'T WANT TO EVER LOSE YOU,
 BECAUSE I BELIEVE WE ARE TRULY SOUL MATES.
WAS IT REALLY BY FAITH OR BY CHANCE,
 THAT LIFE HAS GIVEN US BOTH ONE LAST CHANCE ?
I STILL HAVE NO ANSWER TO GIVE YOU,
BUT JUST A FEELING THAT I HAVE.
 FOR I KNOW IN MY HEART AND DEEP IN MY SOUL
YOU'RE FEELING THE SAME TOO!
SO NOW I HAVE AN ANSWER TO GIVE YOU AND THIS IS WHAT,
I HAVE TO SAY, WE LEAVE IT TO FAITH AND CHANCE THIS TIME
 BECAUSE IT HAS GOTTEN US THIS FAR THIS TIME.
 GOD HELP US BOTH IF YOU DON'T GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME....  
I LOVE YOU GARY.
