Favorite Quote:
“Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

I'm waiting for you
over here in the corner,
over here by the doorway,
under the covers,
front seat of the car.

I'll drink you in
like a thirsty child,
like a river after rain,
flower in the sunlight,
student with a book.

I'll love you more
than your mother loved your father,
than I've ever loved before,
sleeping through the night,
soaring through the sky.

I need somebody
to know me more than I do,
to take away the pain,
talk to me,
lay with me.

I'll be waiting for you
wherever you may be,
wherever I may travel,
moonlight shines,
love exists.
