With all of life around me,
and stray thoughts of love still haunted,
I will embrace my heart and my future
and shelter them - undaunted.
Dusted off and polished, and ready to shine once again.
And if what they say is true,
and good things come to those who wait,
then my future, and my heart, may stay idle
until a later date.
But I will do my best,
as I always have,
to be patient,
and know that time spent waiting for love,
is not wasted,
and moments of loneliness
are not in vain.
For once I've found happiness again,
long forgotten becomes the pain.
