The first meeting, a feeling of
considerable anxiety, either one
knowing the other. Closely scrutinizing
behind closed hearts, a loss for words,
wanting to reach out but fearful of
rejection, a powerful and painful
admonition of past hurt by one who
should never have left.
Don't you know, after all of this time,
the feelings of Love deep inside this
wounded heart I have for you, and
thoughts of the one who should have
stepped up but couldn't are finally
laid to rest? A child who chooses
to trust again, to reach out in fear,
is one who is willing to let herself
be loved again, even in the face
of another rejection. Don't you
know how much I love you? My
heart has been healed by your
acceptance. Don't push me away...
Love me back.
