394 Suddenly [20 March 2001]

my life was empty
devoid of someone, something
to give all my love to
I’ve lived that way
for a long while now
waking in morning
a hope in my heart
that you would come along
and my nights
would never be lonely again
only to reach my bed
and lay down
alone still
I began to despair
thinking you would never come
believing that I would die
as I had lived
then one morning I awoke
your name upon my lips
your presence there
and I realized
you were there finally
you had come into my life
like a gentle breeze
almost unknowingly
my love for you had grown
your voice something I sought
and the very thought of you
makes it all the more worthwhile
