If He Only Knew

A sweet, darkness fell tonight
As sleepy Moon left night lights on
Warm gentle breezes whispered
“Fret not Heart, just let
Aflutter and a’quiver skip a beat
And let your butterflies free and then fill the air
For with another red Rose in hand
And another song he has written
He brings to lie neath the tree
Of the willow that weeps
Its tears will not let the Rose
Nor his new songs wither”
The whispering breeze
Is on my side knowing of my plight of my
Timid hopeless passion that lays
In my throbbing heart
And bids it silence keep.
“But those gifts are not for me"! I cry

They are for his immortal Lady
Whose love of a thousand years
Is an undying Epic, an Odyssey of all times
Thus a thousand years he comes with another red Rose
And a new beauteous song of eternal true love
For his heart is true and he is pure
How can this mere mortal compete with the loveliest of all maidens?

I see him coming and I hide neath the other side of the tree that weeps
Like a school girl with a crush
But my heart is content for I have seen him
My eyes have caressed his sweet face
My lips has kissed his sweet words
And said “I love you” with unspoken words
Is this desecration or sacrilege I commit
But if he only knew that he is the missing song to my heart
That it is with his beauty of his heart that I dream of
He is the secret my muse speaks of to everyone willing to hear
For I sing everyday for him a new song
And a poem I also lay on the other side of willow tree
And it weeps to keep my new songs eternal and my poems are my red Rose
His gift from me eternally

Yes, I do believe in Romance, I do believe in love
I do believe I have a right also to dream and laugh
And enjoy all that love has to offer. This time giving it freely
My all to be able to freely call you “Sweet Heart, My Darling, My Love”.
I too have made you a garden with secrets just for you
The flowers that adorn it, the birds that come and sing
:The grass smells like if was just cut and it is so soft to lie on
Many red Roses, to gift her in memory of your fair Lady
I will not take that away from you: that love so true that you have shown her
So pure so true
I know that in your heart there is a space for me too.
You who have captured my heart it have sparkled a flame.

I look at the flowers in bloom
If I could take every flower
And give them all your name
The birds would come and sing
And beautiful you
I say your name and I’m smiling
I think of you and feel warm
You the secret I have so poorly kept
The one of who I so often dream
The missing song to my heart
The one who has taken my love
And turned it to a work of art

My heart still awaits

If He Only Knew
