a poem for us

pj - September 7

this may be the height of self-indulgent pride, but i wrote this poem last year and i came across it today. i figured you guys might understand. if anyone else has any poetry to share, please do so. well, without further ado, here's the poem:

i search for you my child,
my child yet to be
in that long, cold darkness
up ahead of me
that we call: "the future"

i know not when you will come
or how you will be
but i know that i long for you
and pray for you to come to me

i hope you come soon
that we meet earlier
rather than later

that our life together may start
closer to now
that my life will be more filled with you--
and your little fingers
and toes
and giggles
and smiles . . . and laughter, and tears, and memories
things that i may store up and ponder in my heart--

than lived without you

i know not if you will come at all
and that makes me sad
and scared
and lonely

waiting for you

i trust that God knows best
and that if we are not meant to be,
if you will not come to me physically,
that i may find you in those around me
and love you just the same

thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my poem. it really means alot to have it touch other people, and to know the feelings are not unusual to have.
when i showed it to my husband i think he started worrying about my grip on reality.
thanks for the affirmation.
