Her Love Knocked Me DownMar 25th, 2009 | Author: admin | Category: Fly Music
My prayers always started out the same way. “Thank you Lord for this day. Thank you for allowing my loved ones to be safe. And Lord, thank you for her.”
That’s right … Thank you for her.
From the moment we first locked eyes, I knew that my existence would forever be altered in some mind-blowing, life-shifting way. While other women could only look in my eyes, she had somehow managed to peer directly into my heart.
She knocked me down … rendered me defenseless … and forced me to wave the white flag, surrendering all of the childish relationship games I once played.
I was officially hers.
For the first time in my life, I finally understood the type of love I’d always hear on the radio. She was my “Summer Rain,” and “Beauty” would forever be her name. So I couldn’t help but thank God for placing her in my life…
But then things ended.
I’m not even sure where we went wrong, but I distinctly remember waking up one morning to the chilling reality that our once perfect love had someone hollowed out into a shell of its former self. We fought hard to save it, but over time it became clear that we were just not meant to be.
Her absence in my life was a shock to the system, and one that I hope to never experience again. I went from disappointed, to despondent, to angry, and back to disappointed again. That’s when I realized that as easy as it is fall in love, it’s twice as hard to pick yourself back up once you hit the ground.
In time my prayers began to change though…
“Thank you Lord for this day. Thank you for allowing my loved ones to be safe. And thank you for showing me that real love is possible. But most of all, thank you for being there to pick me up after love knocked me down.”
The Fly Conclusion: If you plan on living and loving in this world, then you should also be prepared to fall down a time or two during the process. Just make sure that when love does knock you down, that you pick yourself back up again. Deal?
