I opened up my heart to him
when he entered my home.
I offered my body to him
and he entered my soul.
He cast fear on my desire
With the words he didn’t say
The heart, home, body and soul
With time and space too much delay.
Now he speaks to me
Of a longing new-discovered,
To spend the time and take the risks
Perhaps to be my life-long lover.
Space and time still stand between us
Only fragments can we share
Though I know his soul is golden
My heart whispers “Please beware.”
Through all the years I have waited
He seems the answer to my desire
But does he perceive my worth enough
To forbear all that time and space require?
