The Sun has no charm this morning The Stars give way to nothingness The birds sing no songs of enchantment The rain has not washed away a thing I just sit wishing. This, too, is just a thing It will pass as did the time I took flight and sailed above the clouds Thinking I would never touch the ground again I just sit hoping. That this sleepless night is over That I’ll move beyond the boundaries of my mind Into the realms shared by gods and sinners alike Touching, kissing, loving, forgetting I just sit praying. That your fragrance never escapes my senses That the feel of your hand in mind will never just be a memory That we will understand and believe In this, in each other, in what makes us who we are I just sit wanting. The pieces of a puzzle do not look exact, Yet they fit to make a whole as the picture becomes clearer, Still, I surrender this moment while praying I share this cup with you In a warm embrace of the Heart I just sit waiting.
