The Stranger.....

I am standing on the corner with my hat slightly tilted
The shadows have started to make their way across my face
just enough to hide my eyes under the bend of my bill
The street hurriedly buzzes around me as I look into the distance
There she is… I dream about her.. and she is right in front of me now
Words escape me as I am lost in her beauty
I need to escape these shadows and present myself
But how? I am merely a stranger…
She walks with a quiet confidence and everything seems to glow around her
Lost in all her beauty is a sense of sadness..
Can I help her? How I long to…
But a last.. I am just a stranger…
I stand frozen in the shadows of fear
As she carries on about her way…
Next time… I promise… I will reveal myself…
She visits me in my dreams every night… but is not aware
I hold her… as if we have known each other all our lives
waking up is always the saddest part of my day
Nobody knows it but me…..
So I walk these streets every day just hoping…
Today? Will it be today?… Will she notice me…
The man that longs to be with her…

The Stranger.....
