    Never in mylife have I felt the
    Longing
    That I feel right now Like If I try to
    Have you I know
    You will fade away
    The longing To sit
    Long hours in your company
    And waiting for the moment I know
    You will embrace me
    It feels like I will emplode
    If not soon given the chance to hold You
    The needing and desiring
    To fulfill the yearning of the fire
    I know now that
    I can search the world over And never find the
    Hidden pools and flowing fountains of forever
    Because they reside in your eyes
    And I reside in your captive grace
    yes because you put the brilliant smile on my face

    And the worst part is the agony
    Of sitting and staring at you from
    Across a room
    THinking the love of you will be my doom
    Me longing for you like
    A child for a toy that is brand new
    Just the unbareable pain and strain
    That is
    The Longing

    ahhhh!!!\sometime longing to have and hold
    under embrace can make you breathe a deep breath
    i always say inhale and exhale slowly and unwined ..

    love the depth of this sweet longing
