The mantra of lovers since time began


                                            My Hope is You
                                                                                      (Authored and Recited by Richard Lee Orey)

                                                                I sit alone amid chaos and struggle
                                                               Thinking of nothing but you...
                                                                Your face, your smile, your sparkling eyes so full of life
                                                                And I ask myself, Why can't we meet?

                                                                Strange things happen in our modern online world
                                                                Soley by accident you entered my mind and heart.
                                                                I didn't know I had surfed into a MeetMe site
                                                                And before I knew it, your picture flashed onto the screen.
                                                                You were there but for a moment and you were gone.
                                                                Yet In that brief interval, your image burned 
                                                                 Indelibly into my mind 
                                                                 An image that shimmers and glows and pulls at my heartstrings 
                                                                 And leaves me sitting alone thinking of nothing but you--
                                                                 You and me and what could be

                                                                  Chemistry stirs my soul and begs a coming together
                                                                  Even as such instant attraction remains unexplained.
                                                                  O, Life is so unfair, I complain to none who listen
                                                                  Until I'm shocked with what I perceive as a gift from God:
                                                                  Your Image is back! 
                                                                  A name appears and a link to click

                                                                  Fighting the pounding beat of my heart
                                                                  Hands quivering with unbridled passion
                                                                  My life is storming back like the flowering blooms 
                                                                  That follow a Springtime shower 
                                                                  Your user name appears, and I catch my breath
                                                                  My Hope is You is what it says
                                                                  And I know that somehow you know I'm here
                                                                  Waiting for you, yearning for you, begging for you--
                                                                  You and me and what can be.
                                                                  Yes, it's true : My Hope is You

                                                                   I write the words: Hi There
                                                                  And in a flash comes back your message:
                                                                  O, somehow I knew you'd be there for me 
                                                                  Can we meet?

                                                                   In a flurry, messages fly back and forth
                                                                   And suddenly I understand that life is not really unfair
                                                                   It's all there in this world waiting for us--
                                                                   Riches and abundance and love and fulfillment
                                                                   All we need is faith
                                                                   And the will to say the words: 
                                                                   My Hope is You.
                                                                    Tonight, we sleep clinging one to the other,
                                                                    Whispering the mantra of lovers
                                                                    Since time began:
                                                                    My Hope is You.  

                                                                             Richard Lee Orey

Beautifully written, Richard, and as the title conveys, hope for the future. Once again, thank you for your mesmerizing poetry.

Now that's a one night stand–Internet style. If only it were true.

Reviewed by Micki Peluso 7/14/2012
Richard, your words are so beautiful. How I wish I had a husband who was as elequent as you!!! I am his life, but he never tells me the way you do to your beloved. I hope your wife realizes what a treasure you are--even as I treasure you as a friend. Wonderful poem.

Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 7/14/2012
This poem is filled with melancholy--and tenderness. A warm and thoughtful write, Richard, that brings fulfilled hopes at the end.
Well done!
