Waiting On The Corner Poem by Lora Colon

I'll meet you on the corner,
East of Love and Happiness;
I'm waiting there, so don't be late,
I'm wearing your favorite dress

I can't wait 'til you arrive,
I have, oh, so much to say;
Like how you mean the world to me,
And how you brighten my day

If sadness should take a hold,
I'll be with you through it all;
I'll never turn away from you,
I'll be there if you should call

I hear footsteps on the walk,
Oh, I recognize that pace;
And now you're here, right next to me,
I close my eyes to see your face

I see you smile and touch my hair,
Then you place your hand in mine;
We start to walk - I don't ask where,
Why question something so divine!

    hey you, Divine!

    i don't get the part about closing eyes to see. hmmm? again, i missed something? ? ? maybe if i close my eyes i'll see it.

    i really don't remember meeting you on that corner, after waiting so long for you. and it WAS
    a nice dress i was wearing, wasn't it? i wish other men (and women too) didn't stare so much.
    haven't people around here seen a man before, wearing a dress? ?
