I watched you as you watched me
And pleasure was the game
And though I wished that you had joined
Still I loved it just the same.
I looked at your expression
As I carried on
And in the light of evening time
I saw my first clear dawn.
You smiled as you watched me
And then you tendered what I dreamed
And as I rode the wave to shore
Your expression fairly beamed…
I soaked in every smirk and smile
And as I rode the wave I waved
And you saw all my drunken wiles
And waved back just the same.
I do not know where this shore is
I do not know just where we are
But this is an incredible night
And I can say this though you’re far.
As we gazed into the depths
Of each other’s souls
I know that I hoped for what is best
And that you would be whole.

Liked it. The rhyme scheme was well done and also, it awoke an emotion inside of me, and if a poem does that: I like it! 🙂
I am right there with you on poems awakening emotions. Thank you.
Awakening emotions from such strangers that request your curiosity?
Do you dare ask for a fair shake?
I usually don’t ask for such things…
