I write this for a friend...
Because you sometimes can not find the words...
And for probably thinking I didn't know...
It came innocently without warning
A faint sensation, each day brightening
A muted notion, a flicker burning.
Eagerness amassed with curiosity
Searching blindly, walking with uncertainty
The feeling gaining its intensity.
Longing for time to share together
Connection binding, growing tighter
Life seems to smile and feel better.
Hanging onto the night until morning
An ache, a thirst, a desire, a yearning
It came too familiar without warning.
