Will I be?

I wonder and ponder this constantly,
will I be the stuff of his fantasies?
Will he accept just plain old me,
or will I meet a gaze of scrutiny?

The calendar moves slow, then fast,
countdown is finally here at last,
even so the obstacles are vast,
I just hope he won’t be aghast!

We’ve put so much into this, till now,
as time and distance would allow,
but the true test is coming, and how!
To his acumen I will bow.

But it makes it easier, when I realize,
there is something here to equalize,
he must pass muster too, no lies,
I have to think he’s a real prize!

So here’s an idealistic idea for you,
when we finally meet, here’s what to do,
just kiss me quick, then tell me true,
am I the one, and I’ll tell you, too!

Sweet poem Corinne, strange that I see it today - I have just met my on-line friend and this poem captures all my thoughts during the time we spent together! Excellent timing, thankyou!

This is nice Corrine..having a little bit of fear and doubt are you?  To me it would depend on your expectations..are you looking for a friend that may become a lover....or are you looking for your soulmate to appear before you..and also what is he looking for.
The important part is that both of you are willing to take the time and effort to meet and get to know one another.  What happens after that is beyond both of your control.
Good luck to both of you.   James

Corinne...lovely words.  I think we all think these things when we are meeting someone special for the first time.  You captured it perfectly.  Good luck!!!

This was very well put to words Corinne.  There is nothing worse then the anticipation of meeting someone and thinking is this the"ONE".  I guess there is nothing to do but sit back and see if feelings grow.

Dear Jas - thank you!  Glad this evoked sweet memories for you!

Thank you, Martie!

James, thank you, and what can I say, but hey, we've either found our soul mate or we're looking for one, right?

Thank you also, Lone Wolf and Marina, anticipation was the mood I was hoping for in this poem, but with a light approach.

This is superb.. Isn't it wonderful to get to know someone special from the "Inside Out"?.... to know your minds are in sync.. to hope that final piece of the puzzle fits??.. To allow whatever will be - to happen in its own time is perhaps the key... then nothing will ever be lost...

Corinne~
Apprehension lightly put at bay.
With your sense of humor and beautiful
talent ... he'll adore you.
I think perhaps he must already, eh?

I like your approach.

Corinne, I'm sure if he's seen that cute little pic, and reads your wonderful verse,
he's sure to fall fall fall, but you still hold the final card. Hey thats a great
idea for your first meeting..... gum?

A great blend of humor/anticipation/anxiety, Corinne.   And, yes, "gum"?  (grinning)
