Roller Coaster Love
The Awakening
by Elena J. Murphy

In the lonely shadows I stand
and wait with silent patience,
and, though I want to reach out,
I watch my love sleep quietly.

As the night becomes the day
my eyes are tired and weary;
but I insist on watching and
waiting for love to awaken.

The eyes of love have now opened
and deep inside I look,
I search for the light
that once burned bright
shining forth with utter beauty.

My heart yearns to embrace your love
that is perfectly made for two
and as I am consumed by our passion
your soul becomes my consolation.

I gently entwine your hand in mine
and hold your love to me
we rise upon love's gossamer wings
and fly into the eternity.
