Let Me Tell You A Story

Published March 5, 2014 by carlyjellis

Let me tell you a story
Of a love so pure and true
He smiled and her and said hello
She said instantly she knew

From that day their lives changed forever
A new chapter had begun
No more worries about the future
One day at a time with the rise of the sun

They spent most days together
Feeling they’d known each other all their lives
A comfortable feeling, a warm feeling
A feeling not clouded over with lies

They fell in love without question
Had never felt love like this before
She gave him everything he wanted
He gave her so much more

They made each other smile again
Their happiness could not be denied
Both had waited so many years
To find a love which made them feel truly alive

Are they still together you ask me
Of course they are, why wouldn’t they be
They were made for each other, meant to be together
And in case you were wondering, the girl is me

Simply For You

Published January 13, 2014 by carlyjellis

There are days when tears fall down my face

Feeling so happy feels like a strange place

Knowing you love me as much as I love you

Knowing we will be together to see the years through

 

You have lightened my life in a way I can’t explain

No longer will I feel any hurt or pain

You are the missing piece to a puzzle I thought lost long ago

Now I see a future filled of happiness with only you

 

The very thought of you and I begin to smile

Having you in my life makes life seem worthwhile

To know you will love me, protect me and care

I’ve finally found someone with whom my life I can share

 

To put these thoughts into words seems such a simple thing to do

But no words could ever express how much I am in love with you

My heart is yours forever and you must now know this to be true

To be by my side for the rest of time my one and only you

 

 

Man of Mine

This feels like a dream

This feeling inside

So happy to smile

Finally feeling alive

 

Never felt this way before

Never truly knew what love was

Never imagined you could fall

Never believed you and I would become us

 

You have lit up my life

In ways I can’t explain

You have become my confidant, my friend

My lover and my soul mate

 

I feel so lucky to have you

To be able to say that you are mine

I don’t know what made you choose me

Whatever the reason I will be thankful for the rest of my life

 

You complete my inner soul

You make me feel like I’m finally home

You protect me and love me and make me feel like I belong

So I dedicate this to you my one and only true love

Fear & Love

Published October 2, 2013 by carlyjellis

Afraid to give my heart

Afraid of being hurt

Afraid to trust the words spoken to me

Afraid of a man who’s changed my world

 

Scared of the past repeating

Scared of a broken heart

Scared that this all may be a dream

Scared that I won’t be enough

 

Maybe it’s time I took a leap of faith

Maybe this time he will be the one

Maybe he will save my soul and mend my heart

Maybe I may have found my true love

 

 

I need to start looking forward

I need to allow the past to die

I need to embrace the love in front of me

I need to trust the man by my side

 

 

 

 

 

In Dreams

Published September 19, 2013 by carlyjellis

Breathe in deep

Breathe out slow

Not tired enough to sleep

Her heart and mind full of woe

A tear rolls down her cheek

Without warning she starts to weep

Will this loneliness ever end

Will she ever find a lover and a best friend

She lies alone at night

Pondering over her plight

Willing things to change

Wishing her life could turn a page

She drifts off to sleep and into a dream

Where she has found her love

It’s all how it should be

He holds her and kisses her

Tells her she is the one

Then she suddenly wakes up

Her love has gone

She yearns for the dream to come true everyday

Never sure if it will

But continues to try anyway

Will she ever see him

Will they ever meet

She lives in hope one day he will come for her

Only then will her life be complete

Icecream

Published June 3, 2013 by carlyjellis

You are a beautiful sight to behold

A delicious beacon of summer days

A memory of childhood never forgotten

A taste which puts a smile on your face

 

You come in so many flavour’s

Each person has their favorite one

Some like it plain, some like it fancy

But for me there can be only one

 

You sit alone in a waffled cone

Sauce dripping down your swirled body

A chocolate flake completes the final stage

Of a treat that is oh so heavenly

 

So lets hear it for the ice cream

Oh more specifically a 99

For what in life could there possibly be

That is oh so tasty and oh so fine

 

 

Ice Cream with flake

Still Of The Night

Published June 3, 2013 by carlyjellis

In the still of the night

Whilst the world is asleep

She sits alone in the dark

With not a thought of counting sheep

 

The television is a distraction

A noise that breaks through the silence

But even that can’t stop the thoughts

Of which now make no sense

 

She checks her social media over and over again

In the hope of through the night she will find a friend

But nobody is around so she soldiers on alone

Oh how she doesn’t want to live her life completely on her own

 

Her mind comes alive on nights like this

Her thoughts consumed with so many whys and what if’s

Living in her present, remembering her past

Being hopeful for the future of finding a love that will last

 

No longer is she afraid of what others say or think of her

No longer a girl, no longer a child, no longer a quiet murmur

She has finally learned to love herself and accept the woman she is

A strong independent woman who like others battles with loneliness

 

The silence somehow is deafening as the night lingers on and on

She wishes for morning to break the darkness

So the birds wake up and sing their song

 

But whilst the still of the night remains here

Whilst the stars in the sky shine so bright

In the darkness she no longer feels fear

For a new day in her life is in sight
