Love Waits--By Rhoda Galgiani--United States

Love Waits

Visions of one is lost in the clouds
for the image is far beyond the sea
searches for love of you in the crowds
wonder who you are, I long to see

You came to my heart with much surprise
not expecting to hear your voice today
almost as if, you heard my saddened cries
but, you are a dream not coming my way

I talk to you many times in my sung song
wonder if you will catch my stumble and fall
will you come my way I’ve waited so long
take my hand will destiny hear my faint call

Across the sea, solitary and alone
buried in life with past hurt and pain
true love you have never really known
for it was captured in damp foggy rain -

your love waits across the sea

  1. This has a poignant feel of sorrow that reaches for and grasps the heart. Nicely done!

  2. Wow Rhoda, what a well written, poignant poem that tugged at my heart strings.. As always I enjoy reading you. Thank you for sharing your talent here on Whispers for all to enjoy.
    Love, Charlene

  3. This poem is a major highlight of the season for me... Put this to music, and it becomes the perfect dirge... laced with layers of melancholy, tiered devotion, and with the stunning closure, we are left with a belief, confidant, all will work out in the end.

  4. A lovely lament.
    I enjoy reading your verses. Ralph

  5. Thank you Nissmech, Charlene, Michael and Ralph for your lovely comments. This poetry touches my own heart and was written for Peter Dome a while back. Not knowing Peter personally - only as a writer on the 'Alliance', my poetry to him are coming as words would come from a friend...
