This poem is part of my Romance Fest 2021 Series. Feel free to read the other poems too.
Here I stand, breathless, waiting to be graced
By your smile, the gentle crescent on your face.
For how long I must remain, I do not know,
Hopefully not long, for I am wont to go.
Then, as if to test me, thunder starts to sing
Overhead where sparrows, mockingbirds take wing.
Tiny raindrops pitter-patter, soaking through,
While I stand here, hopeless, mooning over you.
There you stand, clueless, gazing at the rain
That with every passing minute brings me pain.
For how long you stay aloof, I do not care.
It's enough for me, I think, to see you there.
Then, as if to tempt me, words escape your lips
While you reach for me with eager fingertips.
When our hands entwine, I thank my lucky stars.
This was worth the endless mooning from afar.
As we stand, soundless, sunshine gleams again
Near two people who have long been dearest friends.
For how long this must be so, I do not mind.
It's enough that I am never left behind.
Then if it should happen, if there's chance to change
And my dearest friend would want it rearranged,
Breathless shall I be, I think, once more.
Once you love me, you whom I have long adored.
END The song paired with this poem is Roger Williams' 'Till.'
On another note, always remember that it's important to love yourself and your faith first.
