The poem is below.


I don't know you yet

Sometimes I look for you at night,
And every now and again I wonder what you look like
or what are you doing while I write. 

Once in a while, I take long walks 
And I think of you.

Sometimes I wish I knew your name 
Or the city in which you live
Occasionally, while I look through the window,
I picture you in my mind.

Once in a while, when the rain wets my thoughts, 
I dream of you.

Hi Dilupa...thanks for the comment...maybe you are right.....maybe it will have and end when the.."I don't know you yet" becomes... "I finally get to know you"...=)

This poem reminds me of one of my own im working on, I guess everyone without someone wonders about the right one. I like the simplicity of your version.
