That’s when pain can be felt
Without trying to change,
Only knowing the real nature
Of honesty rings in our heart.
I do remember you and your words,
You were admittedly smitten,
I relished in the beauty of your sweet
Reckoning of a time past.
I smiled imagining you as you were,
Wondering how I might receive
A letter from a mystique whom I had
Just given a risk felt appeal of love.
We do get so confused by real love,
There’s the society definition,
Means only caring about this one soul –
All of our energy hopes and dreams
We must try, always remember beauty,
The essence of knowing a caring soul,
The delight toward seeing positive
Interaction that allows fond reaction
I know your first words were real,
I felt them in my bones as I relished
Each memory as they opened on my page
Gave me tears of joy, of life in truth
I want so much to remind you of those words,
Yet I don’t wish to frighten you any
More than I already have by acknowledging
Your beauty, your grace, your elegance.
We did have a surreal response to our encounter,
I did feel what you felt and you did me,
We shared our delight in knowing together,
Just please know your words touched me.
Perhaps I would choose not to respond in reply,
If then that were the case, my words exist not at all
