    the hesitation of a whisper
    unspoken words held within
    the grasp of silence leaves me
    seeking assurance of your love;

    within your eyes I find true love
    staring back and yet I wonder if
    the depth of this love is for me or
    for the person you wish to see;

    I await for you in the meadow
    as I sit along to brooks’ sides
    tossing pebbles in the still to
    create ripples of new thoughts;

    I am here, leaning gently against
    the tall willow whose branches
    provides shade from the heavy
    heat of a midday afternoon sun;

    I keep my eyes closed just so I
    can listen to the sounds of life
    blowing quietly through the trees
    full of multicolored leaves of fall;

    I wonder if I open my eyes today
    will you be the one who rest next
    to me laying your head in my lap
    as we watch to arrival of evening;
