Abiding Hope

I stopped drifting
the moment she asked,

"are you ready to come home yet?

It had been thirty three years
since our separation

how could a man not respond to that!

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
I don't know what else to say.
Editing stage: 


in your musical life
had to be given an invite

I marvel her for having waited
33 years only
she could have longer
but she couldn't stay more years away
hope you did not disappoint her that day
sing a flaming song for her
your lovey dovey
may be

I wonder if you know me
have you ever read
like you
not much like an swinging apple
from a neopoet tree

I did not disappoint her, or myself
we did reunite
It felt as natural as when first meeting

Unfortunately, she died just a year and a half later

I thank you for your comment
