In 2004, I was fortunate enough to meet a beautiful and wonderful woman. I was in the Army National Guard back then, and was waiting to deploy. We were temporarily stationed in Hawaii for a couple of weeks. It was pretty stressful for me ,being my first deployment and all, going through extensive training, the paper works, and all the b.s. I just wanted to leave and deploy as fast as possible, so I could come home, enjoy life, and be happy again.
The last few days though were the most memorable. I met an angel. Everyone was always fighting for her attention, and it seemed that I did not stand a chance. But as ladyluck and fate would have it, I was the chosen one.
I never really got a chance to thank her personally, and tell her how much she meant to me, and how she saved me. Thankfully, technology has evolved, and it seems everyone has a Facebook account. I now keep in touch with her, but still haven’t got the chance to fully express myself.
I can’t complain because at least I have that memory with me forever. And as my late and great father would say, “Que sera sera, what will be, will be.”
You were an angel from afar,
Your presence made me wonder who you are.
I was a fan, you were the superstar.
When our eyes met
I felt a spark I wont forget.
The feeling , I’ll never regret.
I was nervous and scared,
My body become temporarily impaired.
Lost in the moment and in time,
Everything around was suddenly sublime.
Subconsciously you challenged me,
And like a man I accepted.
The high I felt later that night,
I swear, my soul floated to the moonlight.
The few days we spent together,
I will always cherish forever.
I will never forget you,
For in my heart you will always be,
