    there is a space for one
    along the shores of possibilites
    formed from her wishes
    molded by her anticipation;

    i await for her here
    along the road of destiny
    looking to and fro'
    for this beauty to appear;

    i carry for her a blanket
    made of silken hopes and
    woolen dreams to cover
    her heart from the past;

    I hold for her libations of
    summer dreams and winter
    smiles to quench her thirst
    for fall’s reflections of spring;

    I await her here as I caution
    my desire not to wander onto
    the path of impatience as
    I seek her arrival in dreams;

    yet I stand looking
    into the distance where
    the road's parallels seem
    to converge and make a point

    thumbing to hitch a ride
    to forever I decline several
    offers to take me to where
    I want to go but the driver
    is not she

    who can calm these waves
    caused by absence of the hand
    that can take me into a tomorrow
    where the sun does not set

    where the mind engages in
    debates about how she will
    please me and I her/she
    is only a mirage painted by
    the passing of vacant time

    and my dial is not working
    because the clouds of she
    not "be" ing has swallowed
    the illumination of the sun
