There as she sat waiting for her lover to come, a night watcher silently stood gazing from behind. Time is passing, and candle's light dancing to the silence of the night: Here he is I hear his footsteps coming, or is this the sound of my heart beating fast.

    Beautiful poem... I love the part about the woman thinking she's hearing her lover's footsteps advancing somewhere maybe up the stairs but then she also could be hearing the sound of her own beating heart anticipating her lover is near. That was so nice!
