Her - Part II

"I'll wait" she said
"I'll be patient for you,
and when you are ready to chose I'll be here,
 waiting to fulfill your need
To take my place as your supporter, cheerleader and lover
I'll be here ready to understand you,
Care for you
Love you
....just as you are"
These words she said to him
because she was ready to take the leap
Ready to jump in because of lessons
From missed opportunities
From  unfulfilled promise
To him they might have been just words
But she felt them,
Deep Honest and True
She showed him her spirit
And he held back,
He held the door ajar but not open
He muddied the path with confusion and aloofness
So before he was ready to decide to let her in
She was gone
