|Stages in Love|
|Poem 1 written 15 June 2006|
Could this be it?
Could this be my chance?
Could this be my future?
Could this be the reason for all Iâ€™ve been through since we first met?
How is it?
How is it that you seem so close?
How is it that you are in fact so far?
How is it that after all this time it feels righter now ?
Do I take it?
Do I take the opportunity facing me?
Do I take the leap and not look back?
Do I take what you are offering me and give you all I have too?
Is this part of it?
Is this part of the plan?
Is this part of my book of life?
Is this part of our life together rather then apart?
So many questions
A few doubts & fears
But overcome by feelings of serenity & anticipation of finding myself in you!
Poem 2 written 15 June 2006 :
Sweet tender kisses in the night,
Gentle soothing caresses in your arms.
Can it be that I see the light at the end of the tunnel?...........
Poem 3 written 28 August 2006 :
I float, a little hesistantly, but surely
In a direction that my heart & my head guide me to.
Jack-in-the-box or an Easter Bunny,
Which will I find?
part of life,
meant to be taken.
For what itâ€™s worth I will go
Into the horizon that opens itself
Everything happens for a reason
So go with the flow will I
& come out
Head held up high
With the knowledge that I tried & succeeded or
Tried and failed,
Whichever it may be
Itâ€™ll all be part of the plan
& life will go on
My world will make itâ€™s way
again in another direction.
What goes around, comes aroundâ€ so the saying goes.
Faith in that I have.
So let me reach out & take
What Iâ€™ve been offered & live
A while, breathe
A while, stay
Test my destiny or
My stepping stone?
The choice & the freedom to choose is
But mine .
My head & heart will tell me
What to do.
Poem 4 written 28 august 2006
A tired glance with a sigh of relief
& a journey has endedâ€¦.
Or has it just begun?
A question or a statement,
A step closer & a top to bottom look
A soft touch, a warm greeting
A few kind words
The mind & heart in conflict or harmony
I donâ€™t know yet.
A moment of calm, a point to distract
Collecting scattered pieces of confidence
And quick breaths to free the mind & let the heart reign.
Familiar faces & new acquaintances
Comfortable & at ease
Refreshed and excited,
Fatigue forgotten for a long night ahead
Thankful for the foundation laid,
Conversation comes easily, flows
A little bit of laughter & a dig here and there
The closeness of you, your laugh, your smile, your sweet words
Your arms around me in the cold,
A brief lingering kiss by the bridge
A longer passionate embrace on the corner street.
Is it a dream or is it real?
A moment of self consciousness, lost
In a flash of desire & the body
Takes over the mind to wallow in
The warmth and glow of newly found love!
