my loveliness waits,
through decades of lost haste,

through trials and grief,
peaceful days and dire straits,

my loveliness waits …

i wait …

through decades past,
for kisses meant to last,

i wait,

to hold my loveliness,
in these lonesome arms,

i wait,

transcending lust,
overcoming desire,

i wait,

to be scorched,
in the furnace of her raging fire … … …
