I see the woman
she's peering through a window,
what she seeks
I do not know.
She turns her head slowly
from left to right,
what she is searching for
is nowhere in sight.
Forth and back
she begins to sway,
I wish there was
something to say.
She crosses her arms
beneath her breast,
she feels the chill
but can not rest.
There is something
in the air,
she can not move
she must be there.
She finally shivers
but not from the cold,
His apparition appears
for only her to behold.
She can sleep now
tonight,
she will now sleep
for all nights.

This is wonderful Lorraine --)
Gets a bit of a chill in the air, for
a split second

Ah...she knew for whom she waited, whether or not anyone else did. Deliciously intriguing, Lorraine!

Lorraine~
Greatly enjoyed the scene ... felt like I was watching her ... and 'seeing' her heart take form.
