ANTICIPATION

Moment by moment I dreamed of your eyes
Of the wonderful moment a hand touched a hand.
Now that it happens it comes very clear
This depth of passion I did not understand.

I stand on the threshold of dreams coming true, fearful
Yet unease and concerns through me flow.
With a love so deep, and desire so strong,
Once in my arms, could I ever let go?

We’ll walk hand in hand in this world of our own,
Eyes connecting in loving endeavor.
Our lips will touch as lovers embrace,
Wanting intimacy to continue forever.

How will we part, how can we leave,
Back to the reality we’re living?
Yet, we know in our hearts,
from the moment we part
Our lives will be ones of thanksgiving.
