To meet The One and to know her, to know she is real.
To see her and touch her and know how she feels.
To smell and taste her in the midst of an embrace.
To have her pull away and say no to the chase.
To not be who I should be, would be for her.
To be nothing and wrong and to be spurned.
To have things beyond my control keep us apart.
To be so close to happiness and to give her my heart.
To be a poet with love’s words not readily received.
To stay alone in a loveless crowd among the deceived.
To know who I am, she is and who we could be.
To be alone in the truth is the greatest regret to me!
