Never?

Like a tree
I held my ground
stood steadfast
through storms and wind
~never moved

Like a wild animal
I remained elusive
allowing only a few
to ever see “me”
~but never captured

Like a drowning man
far away from shore
I saw myself
left to perish at sea
~never rescued

And like a well
in a summer draught
I remained
lacking what I needed
~never filled

But now, I have been
~moved by your words
~captured by your smile
~saved by your kindness
~and filled with your love

Very lovely, something every woman looks forward to, I think.

Ah Lady Hoot, a most wonderful piece. I like how it all comes together in the end. The perfect ending. I hope some day you find the one this speaks too.

Hoot,
They wrote a song about this.
"Some day he'll come along the man I love
And he'll be big and strong etc etc etc.
Not making fun I loved your poem, in fact
I love all your poems.
