Love Doesn’t Wait For the Morning

Love Doesn’t Wait for the Morning

What?  Trying it on for size?

Trying to act surprised

that touching someone unlike you

feels so nice.

 

You’re guessing again

and it’s so simple my friend.

 

When loves comes,

it never knocks twice –

It just comes in.

 

Afraid?  What will people say?

Running to far hide-a-way places

to bask in the joy of each other’s faces

In the dark?  Subtle traces

of what is surely to be uncovered in the day

Ahhhhhhhhh!

You are placing wonder in a box

as if you are a child at play.

 

Ashamed?

But love is not a childish game.

Is being with the one you want,

rejected by the world, a strain?

You would rather please

the maddening crowd,

than experience the pain

of standing for your soul

mate and to the world

Shout it out loud!

 

Love doesn’t wait for the morning,

Neither does it hide at night!

Love is perfect and entire

and casts out fear

whether timing is bad

or just right.

Take hold to love – own it

before love is your

“Once upon a time!’

 

Refrain:

When your eyes meet

Know that it is love.

When your minds speak – Listen

No other power can defeat

The power of love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thought on “Love Doesn’t Wait For the Morning

  1. Such a well crafted poem about reluctant commitment…. I felt the struggle and the passion of the one party who understood what love is while the other wanted to rein it in because it might not be acceptable in some eyes. Your title is perfect and so many of the lines deliver powerful messages like this one.

    Is being with the one you want,

    rejected by the world, a strain?

    You would rather please

    the maddening crowd,

    than experience the pain

    of standing for your soul

    mate and to the world

    Shout it out loud!
