Beautiful poem of longing and hope.
i waited near the water
wondered if you’d wander through.
heard a rustle in the leaves
wasn’t sure if it was you.
calm descended on me,
your essence in my blood.
knew that you were with me —
my heart began to flood.
the lakeside view looked brighter
the birds, they noticed too.
the evening breeze felt warmer
basked in the glow of you.
please stay, until our dream begins
so that i can see your face.
take me back to all those times
of love when we embraced.
let’s get to know each other’s hearts
through the mystery of night.
let’s not think of when we’ll part
until the morning light.
