Here In This Time (poem)

Updated on November 20, 2012

What can I add to make complete

What do I have that can compete

To worlds which surely calls her sweet

And lays their gifts about her feet


What can I add to all she’s heard

To capture feelings in a word

Of yet another soul she stirred

And for this dream has life deferred


For here in this time this is my chance

To take her hand and cast my stance

And for this while dreams to enhance

Here in this time

Here in this time


What can I add to endless bliss

What gesture will she not dismiss

Perhaps a dream waits for a kiss

One simple chance to end my abyss


What can I add she came my way

Here was the door fated display

My offered hand she didn’t stray

Why this occurred no one could say


For here in this time this was our chance

She took my hand to cast a stance

And for this while dreams did enhance

Here in this time

Here in this time
