I know there are feelings
inside of him
for me


I know there is friendship
the wish
to have me around


I know there is a longing
for him
to touch my body


I know there is the desire
to hold me
in his arms


I know there is love
for me


But he holds back
doesn't show emotions
doesn't say the words I wait for
doesn't do the things I hope for


I desperately pray
for a miracle
some day
some time
he'll be mine

Amira, it surly seems that far too often, that the heartaches of ones past mistakes, or possible regrets will override ones urge to set foot into unfamiliar territory. As it’s said, “patience is a virtue,” and I am quite sure with time and understanding, all good things do come to those who wait. An excellent yearning composition. It’s such a pleasure to read your work once again, my gifted friend. Take good care and be well.

You sum up a lot of men in these verses, Amira.
Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace to you. Regis
