“i want to be
in love with you
the same way
i am in
love with the moon
with the light
out of its soul.”
― Sanober Khan
In the meantime…while I wait for love’s sweet embrace,
I wait, but I do not sit still. In stillness I may sit in meditation, but it is then that I wait not.
I hold the space open for you at my side, but never am I truly alone.
At times I may feel lonely, but all I need do is light my candle in your honor, and feel your warmth from across the room.
When the waves of my emotions threaten to strike me down I hold my ground. At times that ground is in the shifting sands of the shore break. If I am feeling weak or the emotions too strong and I do collapse, I do not let it keep me down.
While I await your return, I sit and weave my words. But never do my feet gather moss.
Sometimes I imagine what you may be doing or thinking as I go about my day. Other times I wonder what it will be like when we finally meet. I do not dwell on these fantasies, yet they are there.
You are not on this earth to complete me. You are my compliment, likeness, and support. All of these things exist in me now, even without you here by my side.
In the meantime, I live my life to the fullest. Yes, there are times when I grow lonely. Yes, there are times when I long for more.
In the meantime, I am here. Waiting. Standing up in the shifting sands of the shore break. Lighting my candle. Holding the space. Complete in myself. Join me, the water is divine!
