Love Solo
For 18 years I have lived as a rose without its petals,
Desiring always to encounter you.
The waterfalls of time and love slip through my hands
As I lie here alone.
I grow as a vine, maturing like the
Tall Iowa corn.
Seasons blossom and wither,
And still I remain with a hunger
For your satiating touch.
Nothing is complete without you.
I have been yearning to witness the early morning dance
While at rest by your side.
Only the warmth of your glow
Will rid me of these tenacious emotions.
My only hope lies in the dream
That one day I will stumble across you
And our hearts will become forever intertwined
In this freedom song for two.
