with baited breath

This is one of the more romantic style of poems i wrote in 1995 


       With Baited Breath

You first stole my heart long before we met
you then enslaved my longing at first sight
nightly I await your presence patiently
with baited breath Knowing we'll be together

You first freed my spirit from the pit
you then gave life to my romantic side
nightly I await your presence calmly
with baited breath knowing that your there

You first loosed my soul to love again
you then shared with me through the night
nightly I await your presence longingly
with baited breath knowing that you're near

You first gave me a reason to snile again
you then made my eyes glow with delight
nightly I await your presence joyfully
with baited breath knowing that you care

You first asked nothing I won't freely give
you then offer more then friendship and love
nightlyI await your presence tirelessly
with baited breath knowing your beauty is there

You first asked nothing in return of me
you then cheered this tired old soul
nightly I await your pesence woefully
with baited breah knowing I'll see you soon

You first gave me a smile of cheer
you then offered your heart to me
nightly I await your presence tearfully
with baited breath knowing we will soon share

You first warmed my cold life up
you then made me glow with love
nightly I await your presence gladly
with baited brath knowing your the one for me

Youfirst unleashed the romantic side of me
you then removed the loneliness I once knew
nightly I await your presence lovingly
with baited breath knowing our love is true
