It's Been...Too Long, A Wait For Me


If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

I feel I should grab to have it.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

I feel I should grab to have it.

If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

It's been...
Too long a wait for me.

Do I stand a chance?

It's been...
Too long,
A wait from me.

Could there be romance,
To have our hearts continue dancing?

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.
And my heart is mended now,
With no sorrows that I borrow.
Or drag in to meet tomorrow.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

With no sorrows that I borrow.
And a heart that's mended now.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

With no sorrows that I borrow.
And a heart that's mended now.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
