My heart desire

O thus she stood when I just loved her
Folding arms looking terrified
I looked by the side unidentified
Pitying while the more loving her

She stood confused and uncertain for the next
I saw in her the innocence lost in fear
Last also my chance to cheer
I stood then to see her best

At a time she started beating around the bush
Hopped randomly and perched at last
Behold the imagined threat come so fast
Now she gazed at my stance and nimble

I thought she was talking to me personally
I called out to bring confidence and cheer
But she flew to the place I know not where
I pitied her but myself I pitied really

I long for a chance to see my love once again
Time past for me to grow higher in love
No one indeed to share what I have
My heart desire I left woefully unattained

There is no hope for me for tomorrow I say
Things show themselves as a shadow
Can I bear to look through the window
How long will I know delay and decay

Little did I know she loved me more
Century but not long she came back in splendour
As if to console she regained her former posture
Please stay, stay and leave and say no more
