Second Chance

Second Chance

A Poem by Lorna Lee

Sometimes life offers us a second's what we do with it that counts.


Second Chance

First glance, my heart tugged and I tried not to stare
He’s not mine for the taking, but there’s still something there
The years go by, his smile haunting me
Each time that we pass, feelings taunting me
My heart knows that with him, I’d be so complete
To feel his touch and his warmth… each night while we sleep
The story gently unfolds, taking it’s time
I patiently waited and his heart is now mine
He came to me shyly, not quite sure what to say
Words were not needed, he has his own way
Of making me “feel” what he wants me to hear
A special smile and a touch whenever he’s near
Our love is brand new but the foundation is strong
Nothing so pure and complete could ever be wrong
With each day that goes by, love continues to grow
We cherish each moment and are taking it slow
I know in my heart and soon our families will see
That he is the one that will grow old with me

Thank goodness for second chances; smooth as silk, these words of yours bring softness to the uncertainties of heart-love.

"The story gently unfolds,
taking it's timeI patiently waited and his heart is now mine"
The expressions behind such a writing only show the most passionate of feelings for another. The wait of time cause feelings not only to grow of missing one another, but to grow due to the impact of finally seeing each other again. The first kiss is said to show true feelings toward another. Through time, the first kiss' emotional impact can complete a person's want for someone. This has shown that either you, or your imagination is connected to another in such a way, that no matter what obstacles you have overcome, the love will still be there in the end. Keep up the good work.

Oh I agree with this beautiful sentiment... sometimes we must lose to find what we really need and when it comes to the magic of love it will captivate you when least expected if you open your eyes to its natural wonder. A very heartwarming and uplifting read.

Tender, sensitive, introspective and nicely-written. Second chances are good, and many of us wish for them. Excellent job, Lorna.
