    Love
    As I sit here. I wonder why
    you keep passing me by.
    I spy you coming
    out of the corner of my eye,
    but yet and still you pass me by.
    I stay there waiting wanting.
    Trying to grab hold of you.
    But you just pass right through.
    My hands like water, dripping wet.
    This is just my destiny, I'll bet.
    Do you see me, am I here.
    I try to touch as you come near.
    But you drift so far away.
    This can't be for me I pray.
    No matter how hard I try,
    I can't make you see me, notice me, why?
    I want to feel you, be with, in you.
    I want to know you, hold you.
    I want to feel my blessings from above.
    I want you, love

    :heart:

    Love...

    is shown in may different ways...comes across in many different shades...and when its coming you'll never know what day. but if you see it coming and it reaches you...I pray that you'll know just what to do.

    Cause love is always their...be it in your mothers eyes...
    your siblings eyes...
    your fathers eyes...
    your lovers eyes
    you husbands or your childs...it still love...and its so precious.
    It so very precious.
    So though it may not be in the form you want it....be grateful that its in the form you have it...and as long as you know that....I promise you you'll make it though those lonely days. It always worked for me anyway...

    This was nice...different...a texture or content i had never thought of..but in my short life time...I have written something similiar. this is nice scribe and i enjoyed it... when are you going to give me some MORE!!!!

    Oh...by way!! :D WELCOME!!!!!! :D
