While I Waited - Poem by Susan Lacovara

Life went about it's shopping list errands
While I waited
To love you

Seasons changed
And years, to the abacus,
We're added
While I waited
To love you

Fashions took turns in trending
Music developed a beat all it's own
Traffic grew heavier
While I waited
To love you.

I knew you were there
Out there, just beyond the corner
Next to the bakery,
By the cozy Italin restaurant
Down the block
from the fountain in the park
Near the bench, beneath the tree

I knew you were there
Waiting for me to find you
All those dreams of one day
Coming across your face
In the crowd
Seeing it was you, just you
All along that long journey
I waited
To love you

    Beautifully written and gives such a wonderful feeling of the likes of finding treasure.
    We all wait for may things, be it getting rich, losing weight, etc. but to wait for love that is found is priceless.
    I wish all the best for you always my friend....{{{hugs}}}

    Life goes on with music and traffic
    Seasons and sessions
    To see what you waited for
    and grant the feeling a great success
