I Will Not Rush Our Love
You told me you love me and I smiled
I smiled for joy, and I smiled from laughter
My soul laughed from its smiles
I was happy. You loved me. And I loved you.
On mornings since we met, when I wake
I think of you… I wait for you… I want you
To say hello. I anticipate. To see your smile
I patiently wait. Heart giggles in love’s grace.
But did I mess up? By taking it slow? By wanting it slow?
By wanting to wait till I love you more
Before our relationship we begin to explore?
Did I, in that saying of wait, lose hope?
I pray not, for I love you, but I don’t wish to rush
I wait to act on love, to make sure it’s not a crush.
I wish not to hurt, but heal….not hurt… but heal.
Thus, though this thing I feel is real,
Let’s take it slow… to first make our love grow.
Grow to the point of no return… for then we
Would forever be… and forever be happy.
