"Love dreaming sweeter for waking late"


Anticipated Reality

Better to wonder than to find out
Anticipation is greater than
Realization she teased at me
I sniffed at this with impatient doubt
Being a very curious man
Yet by and by I knew I would see
How right she was and how worth the wait
Nor had she ever been wrong before

Waiting for the moment to arrive
Needing her then but loving her more
For making me glad to be alive
With something beautiful to expect
Love dreaming sweeter for waking late
My ardor mingled with my respect
For the one who had become my fate
Who knew what she was talking about

Anticipated reality
Is realized as nothing can be
