At Last- Poem

Source

At last we meet again


It feels so good to be near you, old friend


Just when I was sure my heart would never mend


You brought sunlight back into my life again


I have waited for you for oh, so, long


Living a life in which I did not belong


Existing vicariously through drink, and song


Feeling as if I were always wrong


The moment your hand touched mine


I knew from somewhere deep inside


This was a wave I wanted to ride


I looked deep into your eyes


And understood everything was going to be just fine


I smiled vibrantly because at last you had arrived


Suddenly the dark clouds disappeared


And with them went the fear


In their place a luminous rainbow appeared


And everything became crystal clear


How many lifetimes we have loved, I do not know


Yet, I am certain my heart recognizes, your soul


When I am with you it is so hard to maintain control


There was never a chance of us taking things slow


People say that enchantment is not real


But nothing else can explain how I feel


Being with you strenthens me

I feel like I can conquer anything


There is no way that this can be wrong


We are both exactly where we belong


Your soul sings my favorite song


At last I can welcome you home

That was touching Lisa. You selected your words carefully and wrote them in the proper place. I voted it up and pinned it.
