Timing just out of reach .....

Photo by ahorseback......

She sits down after a walk in the sun
on a bench near the river walk
She longs for a man and sighs wistfully
someone with whom to talk

But he sat here yesterday

He walks in quiet neighborhoods and dreams
of passion.... children ......a home
But the way its looks now
he may always be alone

She was walking in another direction.....


All dreams come true don't they
it's just a matter of the timings
Yet they both seek out dreams to carry
home hidden in secret linings

Listen .....clocks eternally ticking .......

They always sound the same as we watch them
and listen to the tics of time
And moments become days and nights become
lifetimes until they do find

That that one heart waited there
for all the best of reason
All they needed was to meet eye to eye
on the same path in the same season

Fear not for love ......it's just a matter of time

Hi

An awesome poem---and the truth of it---it probably happens a lot to the lonely ones--- looking for another human to care.

Have a great day.
