Him - Part I

"I'll be patient" he said
 "I'll wait for you,
and when you are ready I'll be here
waiting for you take this gift of love
To take your place at my right hand
Ill be here willing to support you
Understand you
Love you
.....love you just as you are"
These words he said to me
as I giggled them off
as I let them slip into the confines of my mind
Let it pass over me, as foolish talk of a potential lover
They were just words
Until he showed me
....showed me just what love was
More than lip service
This man was honor and justice and truth
He was meaning and understanding
The very essence that I have spoken of so many times before
And just as I was ready to open the door
He was gone.
