The workday now is nearly done,
And I am headed home.
I stop and sit to think of you,
and write instead this poem.
I'd love it, if there was a way,
For you to be with me.
To stand in shelter from this storm,
And see just what I see.
The dancing lightning fills the air,
Loud thunder rends the night.
But I could hold you in my arms,
To kiss away your fright.
The splashing raindrops cleanse the sky,
And soak into the earth.
To join in harmony, the sun,
Drawing flowers to their birth.
We two could stand both side by each,
Our souls grasped hand in hand.
We never even have to speak,
For love is never planned.
Of love and laughter, joy and want,
Or happiness and care.
I could have all of these things, if,
Only you could be here.
If only's, seem to run my thoughts,
And wishes tease my heart.
A mindless wandering each day,
That we must spend apart.
I walk outside to find my truck,
Rain from my hair now streams.
I hurry homeward to my bed,
To meet you in my dreams
All the world should rise and see,
Just how much she means to me.
But distance sets, quite like a crowd,
That tries to hide her in a shroud,
Of veiled fog and velvet mist.
A challenge I feel, I can’t resist,
Most fleet of foot I dash outside,
To find winged steed, a lovers ride.
Astride, aloft, onto the quest,
for this night I shall not rest
Until I have within my grasp
My loves own form and hear her gasp.
Two lips upturned, pressed to my own
A greater prize was never known.
To soar and glide among the stars,
For heavens prison has no bars.
To greater heights our love we’ll take,
The world below shall rock and quake.
But what is this? I feel the jerk.
A recall of a cruel fates quirk?
Eyes now stare to darkness deep
All of this time I’ve been asleep.
I not cry aloud, for when eyes close
I still see this love that daily grows.
