Sandi J Holland


Right Turn


On a sunny Monday morning on the way to work,
I made a right turn and fell in love with you.
It came and attached itself to my heart,
That desire to accept you as you are.
My emotions twisted deep inside,
As my spirit gave in to the knowledge that
I wanted to try to tolerate,
To communicate,
To do what heretofore
Was unthinkable.

    Taking a right turn for Mr. Right. I like the way how love was declared.

    Yes, it is unthinkable sometimes, because we have to give so much, be we receive much, with the right person. (Report) Reply
