You are loved with an everlasting love…
And so am I.
The waiting is vital,
We both get that—
But how long?
How long must we wait?
Will you still want me
When the sun has burned away the dew of our youth,
When care has plowed his furrows in our brows,
When my azure diamonds have lost their sparkle,
And the heat has cooled in your garnet jewels,
Will you still want me?
When our friendship has endured the years,
Will we decide that friendship is enough?
Or will we at last be ready to embark
Upon that mysterious journey
And plummet the depths of a love born in maturity,
Ready to accept with equal grace
Both pleasure and disappointment?
Only time will tell.

Have you ever been in a relationship where you wanted each other now but deliberately chose to withhold the most precious parts of yourselves because the time was not right? This takes an incredible amount of courage and self-control, but believe me, if this man or woman is worth having at all, then he/she is worth the wait! The couple in this poem is willing to wait as long as it takes, but she wonders… will he still want her if she is too old to give him what she longs to give him? Will he outgrow the longing? Will, after all that time, they decide to just be friends? And if so, is that so bad?
