She Fell in Love

She fell in love with him

She closed her eyes

Stood at the edge of the cliff

Braced herself

And jumped

She held her breath

Exhaled slowly

And let the whistling wind

Caress her cheeks

As she fell

She fell in love with him

And she didn’t know why

There was no exact moment

She could lay her hand on

And determine to be

The moment

She just knew

He was the one

And when she jumped off that cliff

She let her heart fall

And prayed

That at the bottom of the fall

He would be there

Face down

Having already taken the plunge

For her

But when she reached the bottom

He wasn’t there

Face down

Having already

Taken the plunge

Instead

He stood at the bottom

With a smile on his face

And his hands outstretched

Waiting to catch her

And in that moment

The love she had thought she had known

Grew

She had fallen in love

Caressed by the warm sea

Of his welcoming stormy eyes

That came to life

When he looked at her

She had fallen in love

With the one

That held her close

And refused to let go

When she cried in the night

From the pain in her heart –

When she stood

On the edge of the cliff

Contemplating

If she should let go

And take the jump

She had been scared

And unsure

Of what would await

But as she neared the ground

Her eyes gazing down

She never expected to see

The man of her dreams

Waiting to catch her

To stop her from crashing

She fell in love with him
