In My Arms


You who never arrived

in my arms, Beloved, who were lost

 from the start,

I don't even know what songs
  
would please you. I have given up trying

to recognize you in the surging wave of the next

moment..."
  
-Rainer Marie Rilke, You Who Never Arrived (as translated by Stephen Mitchell)- 


I died to the illusion of knowing...what lies beyond...before and hereafter...

     I waited...

   I AM waiting...

    I will wait...

echoes optimism.

Love is such a Fool's game...that I'm willing to play...

For you never arrived...and I was here all the time...

I've loved you forever and we never met...

but still the promise stands still...

I will be here...

I am here.

    Hi Melissa...i've been on your site for 45 minutes and cannot post comments....here they are if you like :)/// Hi Melissa -

    Wowww so much passion here in the poems. GOD may make us wait for things that we need, but he doesn't make us wait forever.
