Waiting

A future in love I’m e’er able to see.
Though the present has yet to gift me.
“Live your nows open so later can come”…
Wizened wishes that “I” becomes “We”.

I’ve predicted a day when love does reign.
Though it’s dawn is reluctant to deign.
Outlasting the night with morning in mind…
Is the moonlight that brightens my brain.

Sighting horizons to see through the veil.
Traveling there because here goes stale.
I follow the map laid out by my heart…
My adventure encompassed in scale.

I come to a place where I’ve seen us meet.
I’ve surveyed these environs complete.
You are not here but I go on & on…
Was my vision of you a deceit?

Weary from searching & hope’s heavy weight,
I must stop for relief from my freight.
I’ve reached halfway in the effort for us.
I’ll be here, it’s your turn & I’ll wait.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
