I am Youthful

youthful 4

My love is on his way to me.

I can feel him, smell him, hear him say,

“Wait! Don’t say “yes” before I get there,

I’m coming as fast as I can make it.”


I hear your whisper my love,

Distinct like thunder in the rain,

Cajoling, compelling,

To wait one more day.

I am Youthful, my beauty boundless,

I am Focused, my eyes only for you,

I am Faithful, dutifully preserving

My heart and self, of which you’re deserving


How long till you come, my love?

Hope’s flicker I no more can tell.

With your twinkle you bathe me just then,

And again, I am Youthful.
