Awareness


Oh, let us savor this beginning
So sublime,
And rush not
As excitement weighs heavily
Upon our minds.
Yet, we must not hesitate
To answer the soft
And gentle awareness,
Of intense and increasing closeness.
For to surrender is to
Keep desire alive.
And if I should die before we kiss,
Happy I will be
Anticipating the bliss.
For the joy of waiting is great.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes we miss the beautiful, quiet excitement of an experience by rushing headlong into it. And then it is gone, and never will that point in time be passed again. It can never be gotten back. And much is lost through not waiting, and contemplating.

    That is the problem with everyone nowadays. Nobody wants to wait everyone
    seems to be in a rush and not going anywhere. Love takes time and should not
    be rushed along. One should take the time and savor the sweet moments.
    A lovely write. (Report) Reply

    The beauty of waiting and contemplating is truly great when it is
    the one you love, and you can wait no matter how long. A very
    lovely poem. (Report) Reply

A smile of joy since I was born
