LOVE HAS ARRIVED


LOVE HAS ARRIVED

Lonely and aching, I knew there could be no hesitating,

If love should ever arrive.

My true love was out there somewhere,

Breathing the same air.

“Where are you?” I prayed each night,

And though I prayed with all my might,

I answered my own question talking to myself.

“You are not ready for love,

Not now, not yet, maybe not ever.”

You were but a shadow it seems,

I could not hold you or touch you,

You were a figment of my dreams.

I gave up after a while,

I never saw your eyes or your smile.

“Where are you?” I asked.

In my weakened state, I overlooked you.

But I grew, forgetting my own needs.

My life changed. You saw me helping others,

And you took a chance,

And taught me to love, to laugh, and to dance.

I was ready for love because you had opened my heart.

You are still in my dreams, but now I can hold you.

Love has arrived.
