Once in a lifetime

   I set here alone and my mind returns to thoughts of her.
The sky outside my window is ebon,and even though the
stars shine with a million pricks of light a blackness grips 
my soul.
Only in dreams may i touch her hair and only in dreams may I
breathe in her fragrance and sadly only in dreams may I  hold 
her in my arms.
I wake and loneliness takes me by the hand and leads me 
down a road only to be traveled by one.
Ive trod other roads to find a companion and try and escape this 
torture,but all roads lead me back to her.
She is my guide the very reason I take the first step on any journey.
Her warm smile and kind heart is a haven along lifes road that I
would gladly spend the rest of my life within.
It tears at my heart as I near the end of my destination to find the one 
thing worth traveling to the ends of the earth for.....unobtainable.
The road to Love is a dead end,there is a bridge,an abyss between
I shout across the chasm,I can see her beautiful face,but she is unable 
to hear my words.
How can I cross this gap,how can I make her hear me?
Only she has the power to bridge this life and join these two hearts
