 Poetry Through My Eyes and My World

It's Been a Long Time

It's been a long time
Since I've felt the warm embrace of a man
The gentleness of his touch
The caressing of his hand
I reminisce of the time that we spent
The feeling of
And your heart that you lent

It's Been a Long Time
Since I've actually felt like a woman
I feel beautiful despite what's happened to me
My heart vowed never to let anyone inside
You, of course, decided to challenge that
When we first talked
I was scared to tell you about my illness
You looked beyond that and began to care anyway
Most men would have never taken that chance
I must admit that I tried to shy away from you
To get close to a man was something I simply could not do
The brightness of my day
Is not complete without the sound of your voice
I hope that we can intensify just what we started
Nothing too Fast
Just Slow
But Steady

It's Been a Long Time
You promised to never take me back into my past
That's a word I haven't heard in a long time
I am still skeptical about giving you my heart
It's not the fact that I won't or can't
I am just scared of being hurt
My past seems to resurface and shows its face
I admit that my illness has changed my outlook on life
Relationships have never come easy for me
I have always given more than 100%
Just to receive less than 10% in return
I know that you might be deployed soon
And as you have told me before
A lot of things are going to happen between now and then
I just want to enjoy the time that I have with you now
Trusting that upon your return
My feelings will have grown in depth
It may be several months to a years
Before we are reunited
I can wait
For what I feel is so real
Someone only comes into your life once in a lifetime
To make you feel as if time can stand still
In my eyes
It will
As you have figured out by now
It's Been A Long Long Time
