Sometimes a sigh exhaled in joy reaches across the bay finds love waiting on the other side wanting the sigh to say 'I am shared with you'
Sometimes a sigh of sorrow's partake ripples the waters across the lake calling for your hand in prayer 'a sigh of gentle share'
Sometimes a sigh of sad goodbye drifts across the ebon night wafting on the breeze of whispering winds calling back to a friend 'return when you might'
Sometimes a sigh was spent in vain from the friend who shed tears but could not share the pain These are the sighs I listen for most 'for when your tears fall ... I want you to realize I am as close as your next shared sigh'

sighs.... wafting.....on wisperin' winds through an ebony night.....callin' back friends..... that imagery is 'as good as it gets'....in my opinion! [sets a grand 'poetic horizon' to seek in this humble "wordsmith's" journey-quest!]
"Sometimes a sigh was spent in vain from the friend who shed tears but could not share the pain These are the sighs I listen for most 'for when your tears fall ... I want you to realize I am as close as your next shared sigh" ............................................ Your last verse is somewhat like one of my last verses to a poem I once wrote to a friend:
"But until I see some small sign from you, That I am wanted, I stand timidly by your side. I can not read so well, That I can meet your needs. Help me please So I won't walk away. Without you ever knowing.. I was there."
