    How long I’ve dreamt of you
    …and me

    Tomorrow finds us
    Together

    Yesterday made way
    For love

    Today…

    How long?

    How long will love’s song
    Sing
    For others to march to
    …to smile to

    For others to dance
    the dance of healing
    For broken hearts to mend to

    How long?

    How long will the inexplicable bonding
    of oneness
    fill love’s heart to the bursting

    How long?

    I’ve dreamt of you
    And me

    How we should be

    How long
    …must I wait?

    dnommo...

    the next time you talk to GOD...tell HIM HIS humble servant awaits HIS instructions. and, if HE happen to know of a woman--not a perfect woman...not a 'yes' woman--that's right for me, to point me in the right direction.:)

    THANKS d.

    not knowing

    it is of great difficulty to be patient...and not get too worked up with not knowing.

    the unknown can seemingly be unbearable at times...

    tight write.
