My texts and poetry

15 Years Ago ... on February 21, 1993... (2008)

Like a best friend that never let me down, you have always found a way to make me feel better when I wasn't feeling good. And you have always influenced me to make me feel proud when I've had my share of success.

The first time I saw you, my heart instantly melted to form one with your music. I can remember every little detail of that moment, one of the most important ones of my life. Like a force stronger than time, you have found a way to stay close to me.

They told me the love of my life would be jealous of my devotion to you. Instead, you helped me find my husband and convince him I was the one.

You were there for the good times and the bad. I never stopped loving you even when my faith was put to the test. It was difficult sometimes to have faith, but you always proved me that I was right to love you that much. You continue to amaze me every time I see your accomplishments and I realize that is why I admire you so much.

I lost some friends because of you, but I gained other good friendships because of you as well. Because of you, I learned a new language that allowed me to appreciate the depth of your lyrics, and to follow other dreams. It also made me realize how amazing you are to my eyes.

My passion for you radiates through my life. People refer to me as Miss Bon Jovi. Some would consider this an insult; for me, it is the most beautiful compliment I could receive.

Lately you've been saying through my CD player that you want me to save you a seat next to me. 15 years ago, I offered you a spot in my heart instead; I hope it's good enough for you. You are also right when you sing about the night before I knew you; it was definitely the last night I would ever be alone.

I thank you for caring about your fans; to be considered one of your fans makes me feel like a privileged human being. I thank you for the good moments you have helped me live over the years as well. I would be a very different person now if it were not for you. I owe you very much and I'll be forever grateful for what you have brought me over the years. I felt very alone 15 years ago, then I discovered you, started loving your music and that feeling vanished. Thank you for giving me a reason to live a great life.
