He'll let her know he's interested
Evidenced by his willingness
To overcome his idle fears.
He'll go out of his way
In his own unique fashion
To share how he truly feels.
Confiding his spirit’s lust
Heart’s longing and wandering mind with her
No matter how much he masquerades.
She'll never have to wonder if it's her
His piercing eyes
Magnetic mind and pounding heart are set on knowing
More intimately than any other
Or even himself.
He'll find a way
Exploring the magical wilderness—lost for quite some time
Before stumbling upon
Standing before the entrance
Into the caverns of her heart.
Eventually revealing his own vulnerabilities
Shadow dance and lifetime of mistakes.
Her perfection to him is a glorious work of art.
He'll study every part of her in awe-struck admiration.
Sheltering her mind's musings from society's dismay
Clearing the way for her spirit to rise and holding space for her shadow to play.
They'll daydream of one another each passing day
While imagining the merging of their two souls.
There’s no foretelling how long two mates must wait
Before uniting in bittersweet
Having finally discovered the one they’ve called out to
So many lonely nights and tearful moons.
Winters past and summers too.
Bridging time—crossing the great divide of space
Imaginations realizing what they’ve always known innately from deep within
To be utterly and defiantly
Madly mysterious but true
Hearts colliding on this fateful date—the moment we say to ourselves
“I’ve finally found you.”
