Still Waiting

You loved me just a little
You never loved me long;
But you gave my soul serenity
And gave my heart a song.

You loved me for a moment
I found it in your eyes;
But your mouth I could not capture
By temptation or surprise.

Sweet lips that I remember
With a poignant surge of pain
As one remembers fragrance
Of the softly falling rain.

Within this world of wonder
Without warning I feel sad;
The dream I hold still haunts me
For the kiss I never had.

Elizabeth you have this unique ability to encapsulate emotion in the past and present existence and leave the reader in a little state of meditation or what some call "muse". I love your work and I especially enjoyed your book.Thank you for sharing that with the world at large. Most who either don't know of it or have never read it will never know of the gems they are missing.

Love was at your finger tips. It's taste was on your tongue. A kiss would take you back again to days when you were young. You close your eyes and press your lips against your lovers own. Sparks ignite in colors bright like nothing you have known. The longing for a lovers kiss is buried in the heart. Chained to pains desire for a love that's kept apart. Well done Elizabeth. You made me think in poetry. Thanks for writing.

Liz, I can relate...who hasn't felt (or feels) as if they're still waiting for their true love to arrive? I've missed you and your writing and decided to come back and visit for a while. Reading your poetry always makes me feel like I'm back home again. Thanks for another good one:) Terry

Dear Lizzie, Oh how I wish I could write with the command you have of creating an unforgetable poem. Seasoned with romance, bitter sweet, and melancholy, bursting with joy and sorrow intertwined. Into my fav's and leaving me smiling, longing.....Love, Lotus
