...look to me once more.


As I make myself a home
having  driven that 50 miles,
just beyond my 50 years
to my private Paradise.

I had traveled those first miles
with a different perspective. 
I contemplated my  journey
My mind wanders
to my more recent past.....
3, 4 maybe 5 years before.

You came to me, those beautiful soft
brown eyes, you looked at me
as though you could see my soul,
your eyes seemed wanton 
with a certain allure,
your body spoke a language
I have always wanted to know.

At the time, self esteem low,
I thought you were a tease,
knowing  how I have always felt .

I smiled and turned away,
so as not to let you see,
the quiver run through me
and the heat that rose.
As these years have passed,
3, 4 maybe 5 or more.
I've oftened wondered, what if....?

Now as I sit here taking in the beauty
of my surroundings, it is only natural
that my mind travels to the beauty of you.

I have come to know you.
just a little bit more and
I think of myself
such a fumbling fool.

With all the gentle kindness
that is truly you,
taunting is not your way.

How could I have
doubted your eyes?
My god...
Did I hurt you?  

You showed me that
sensitive vulnerable side.
I the uncertain fool.
looked the other way.

My stomach turns and
I pray for another day,
a chance of knowing you,
to experience your touch,
to feel your breath closer
than ever before.

I shiver with feelings for you
I am breathless....
wondering ....what if?

A heart that was truly perceptive would've seen the beauty within, and even through the doubt, perservered!!

This certainly breaks my heart ... what could have been ... if only ... awash with emotion and painful. Hugs, Elizabeth
