… you waiting …

on the new year

Expect the sun to rise, and it will not.

Ignore it, and it comes to you willingly,

crying sun drops, wanting cloudlings to

hide its loneliness.

Wait only for the one who waits for you,

which is you, waiting,

endlessly waiting,

for you,

you waiting,

forever waiting,

waiting without a magazine.

… forever …

“For many, love is a two-sided coin.

It can strengthen or stifle, expand or enfeeble,

perfect or pauperize.

When love is returned, we soar.

We are taken to heights unseen,

where it delights, invigorates, and beautifies.

When love is spurned, we feel crippled,

disconsolate, and bereaved.

Polish the coin and you will see only

requited love on both sides.

I was destined to love you and

I will belong to you forever.”
