The Wait


How is my love when she's alone?
Miles apart and doesn't phone.
Where is the justice that lets us pine?
Is the pain hers and also mine?
Why does distance keep us apart?
One from t'others counterpart.
When will our meeting, time, allow?
Fate and action, mixed somehow.
The passion of action forces this:
To enjoy a worthy, heartfelt kiss!
Lovers must feel both pain and pleasure,
Which time nor distance cannot measure.
Expect love it may not be there;
Run from it and it will dare
To chastise and win you back,
It goes like that it has this knack.
When it flows smooth as a valley's stream,
Sly destiny knows its cunning scheme.
Ethereal threads bond it together
To sway around in all types of weather.
Love can return with a sparkle,
Like Mr Hyde and Dr Jekyll.

    Which time nor distance cannot measure. ....nor...cannot? how about can? how about which neither time nor distance can(cannot?) measure
    i liked One from t'others counterpart. and the use of commas in When will our meeting, time, allow?
    where can i get that kind of love? well, i may have it now, with fourth wife! but why can't we avoid the pain sometimes? ? but it doesn't conquer all, does it? tack another L onto the doctor's name; we just saw the movie musical at home courtesy of the local library. thanks for sharing. i give it 'very good'.
