Sweet Awakenings
By Joy L. Hale

No love is quite as tragic as young love that ends without answers. The other day I was thinking about the young Naval officer I was in love with when I was eighteen, still naive and unexperienced, and these words came to me....

 

Sweet Awakenings

Others had held me in their
Arms and kissed me...
Their wandering hands insistent
I couldn't relax with them

With Mother's cautionary words
Clanging through my head
Like the warning bell near the railroad
I remained wary of most caresses

But when you took me in your arms
It was different
You were not demanding, but gentle
 

Your kisses were tender, yet amorous
I felt safe and secure with you
No longer on guard, I allowed myself
To experience the first sweet stirrings of passion.

Your shore leave was up and
You had to return to your ship
The absense of your letters led 
me to the wrong conclusion

How was I to know your
Letters were being hidden from
Me by my own family members?

The course of our time was
To be shortened, we reached an end
Before we really started. I was convinced to
Marry another, the better marriage said
My Mother and my brother.

The other man being my brother's best friend.
All was planned and orchestrated down
To the smallest detail
How could I have been so blind as to
Not see the manipulations that were afoot?

The well intentioned interference of family
Confused and distracted me
Sadly changing the course of our lives

Time and chance would dictate
That I would never know
Where you might have led me
On my path of sweet awakenings

Aaah.... The tantalizing mystery of it
I wonder to this day....
