Falling in Love Poem

Lying In Your Arms

The distance..
excuses are made.
people tell themselves lies..
.. give all these reasons why you can't be together,
time goes by,
seasons change,
but the feelings stay the same.
Stop hiding, stop lying to yourself.

San Francisco Awaits


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009 with permission of the author.

So in depth, hold on with all of my might.
Waiting in the rain, a cold winter night.
Inhale, exhale. Calm as I am.
Hair blowing in the wind.
Somebody take my hand.
My eyes they close;
As I breathe in deep
You run through my mind
And my life is complete.
I open my eyes
But you're still not there
No one could take your place.
With you my heart I share
A cold afternoon,
Hands as cold as ice
Thoughts go through my mind
My feelings are concise
Lying in your arms
We are the perfect match
The distance is discouraging
Yet still I am attached
Sitting by the fire,
Thinking in a distant stare
Waiting under streetlights
Nobody could compare

I like it. It reminded me of the times I used to sit out in the winter waiting on a friend to come through in the City of Chicago.

This was a really heart-warming and touching Love Poem. I felt the chill and the sensation in the words in my soul.
