Curiosity sparks the flame anew;
   desire burns from thoughts of you.
Anticipation spreads its entangling web,
   and I'm caught in the longing for more.

Dare I dream that you are real?
Dare I dream these emotions to feel?
Dare I expose my heart to your touch,
   and let your love heal me (wanting too much...)

One lifetime... two hearts....
One love....

Pray will last.

(approx. 1997)

    This feeling of fear you describe (daring to dream, daring to expose your heart) is familiar to me as well, Petra. I have been reluctant to open my heart for fear of being hurt. But the reward of "One lifetime" shared by "two hearts" is a compelling reason to at least try. Thank you for this much-needed inspiration. Love, Carolyn
