Near Me

Written by: Des Juan Richardson

                                         It’s been a long time coming
                                     But the moment has finally arrived
                                      I see no more reasons to hesitate
                                 Hesitation seems eternal – every moment
                               Of hesitation equals a full day that I am blind
                                             With each passing day
                               Unhappiness and sorrow stampedes my chest
                      But the sight of your beautiful eyes and warm gentle smile
                            Eases the discomfort that has my heart oppressed
                                With every touch of your soft, smooth hands…
                                      My soul and heart flies gracefully free
                           You can never imagine the things you do, the effects
                                         You cause, the emotions you stir,
                                           Each moment you are near me
