My Three States of Being

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Anticipating you arriving,

being with you,

and dealing with you leaving,

are my three states of being.

One state a smooth progression to another,

yearning until you are by my side,

until I am immersed in your loving arms,

and my soul sighs with relief.

My heart burns with intensity when I am with you,

brims with anticipation when you are on your way,

and all but stops when you must leave.

With you I am nourished,

my soul open in a blissful paradise,

a selfless and sharing passion

that transcends all life,

and imbues a joy and freedom that defines my life.

I pray for the day that we can be free

from life’s responsibilities,

and be together within our world,

where time fails to dictate our parting,

and life is as it should be, together.

Until then I will embrace my three states of being,

grateful you are in my life,

and thankful we have found each other.

      A reflection of life itself and the blessing to have met someone that can make us say "Grateful you are in my life". Beautiful.

      Thanks Tom and PARASMART, it's nice to have guys appreciating love poems; most guys deprive themselves of sensitivity. A shame. Thanks for you comments.
