    I've stop seaching ...

    for one to be a savior,

    a knight in shinning armor

    a bridge over troubled water


    Because I've learned...

    To slay my own dragon

    Bring home my own bacon

    Raise our many growing seeds

    Basically to fulfill all the needs


    But when it's all said and done

    And the battles have been won

    I desire someone that refreshes my soul

    keeps my inner light enflamed, burning bold

    So no matter how tough & independent I seem

    Know, that this was never my ideal or dream


    Even in your absence you are what keep me growing

    I hold your spot, my king, so the river can keep flowing

    I do what I have to keep the nation afloat

    But it's definitely not with a boast or gloat


    Just because I've learn to take up the slack

    doesn't mean that you can't have your place back

    I am no longer looking but I am open to being found

    I still have faith that my king is some where around

    don't lose faith...

    ...in the wonders of love
    for, there is always hope
    that the next "hello" will bring with it
    happiness and joy
    and all you've ever dreamt of
    ...and a sparkle in your eye
    leaving you with only one question.

    WHY?

    why did it take so long...for my man to come home?




    LOVING THE FLOW OF YOUR RIVER.

    It's true to form the times we live in. All that can be done is to keep moving. Doing the best we can. Not settling for less. Trying to make that home. Raise our children. Not giving up. And not setting still either. Some where along our travel. That knight will appear. Very nice poem
