This was written over a year ago when I was returning from a road trip without my sweetie. I was anxious to get back and hoping that she was feeling the same. She was, we did and WOW!!!!


I’m in my car, heading home.
With just my thoughts, I sit alone.
She’s not here, but in my heart,
never more will we be apart.
She’s been in my thoughts for a very long time.
Often I’ve dreamt, of her lips on mine.
It could not be, or so it seemed,
could her reality exceed what I had dreamed?
I was surprised at how my comfort grew.
And, how my life feels so renewed.
A look or smile can mean so much,
sometimes maybe, just a gentle touch.
She seems to feel the same as me.
Who’d have thought that could ever be?
That I could learn to love again
or that I would love my email friend?
I thought about it as a trial run.
I only imagined it would be such fun.
She awakened something from deep within,
something I never expected to feel again.
I can’t remember a kiss so sweet,
or when my life has felt so complete.
I now look forward instead of back.
I feel my life getting back on track.
I can hardly wait for her next trip South,
or, to place my lips upon her mouth.
To dance with her and go out to eat.
To say I love you and then repeat.
It may be a while before I’m able,
to place all my cards upon her table.
It could be a long, exciting wait,
but it’s going to happen, cause it’s our fate.
