It’s Here

…lasted long enough. Our first chance was long ago when we were too young and immature to successfully make a life together. Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine we’d get a second chance. Oh, my love, it’s here!

From “The Book of Happy Endings…” by Elise Valmorbida
Favim_com-33789EIDTOld love, I thought I’d never see the time
because of all we’ve done and often said
when I’d be yours, my dear, and you’d be mine.
And what relief to soften, and resign
the battle of the heart over the head.
old love, I thought I’d never see the time
When qualms and cold feet that could undermine
all we’ve held out for, dissipate instead
now that I’m yours, my dear and you are mine.
I’m still amazed how our two lives align
the two of us! A pair! Take it as read,
old love, I thought I’d never see the time
The tangle of our jumpers in the line,
the battle for the blankets in our bed
confirm that I am yours, and you are mine.
So then, this is my pledge, my valentine:
my hand’s in yours for all that lies ahead.
Oh love, there’s never been a better time
now that I’m yours, and finally, you’re mine.
