When It Is Time

When It Is Time

I can assure you
Lovesick I am not
I am merely smitten by
the thought of your love
My mind wanders in dreams
of warm, exotic nights
under the stars
That you might hold me
in your arms
speaking words of love
that I might feel butterflies
in my stomach and remember
how it felt
Is it so wrong to wish
for these things?
I do not even know you
You are out there somewhere
and you have not found me yet
But I am here
and I am ready to receive
when it is time

    I think that sometimes only the knowledge that somewhere out there the special one waits.

      Yes, everyone should wish for it or at least envision it. Maybe then it will manifest ☺️💕🌺

    That timing can be tricky. You are lucky when the opportunity meets the timing to receive it.

    Happy summer.

      Thanks Punam. I was looking back over some old haikus and wrote one with similar words to the opening lines . I inspired myself! ☺️👍 Lol
