A Natural Love
I first saw her, elegant and beautiful as a goddess
Eternally lovely as if planted by an artist
Across the street comforting her weeping friend,
Leaving me wishing I could simply extend a hand.
She was just blossoming, could be outshone by none
Pink and alive and brilliant in the shining sun.
I did not think she would have noticed me,
For she was irreplaceable while I was one of many.
It seemed that she was stretching toward me
Calling that if I could get across the concrete sea,
My undying love for her would be returned,
So I began to reach out to what I hoped to earn.
She watched as I reached across time and space
And she leaned in my direction, though rooted in place.
Months and years went by as we moved slowly with intent.
The world changed around us, but we were somehow distant.
I was tireless until that instant when I was suddenly secure.
Our fingertips brushed and it was at that moment I was sure
That she, as fragile and divine as a dove,
She was my one and only love.
