A poem– Yearning

Say, did you hear someone call your name?
As you turned around and looked at me with pain
And found me unmoved and lips sealed with silence
As I’ve remained for so long in your absence
Moving on in life but held in a moment
When love caught us blind in its current
And then our luck ran opposite & upstream
But I believe we’re still holding fast our dreams
Dare I believe that dreams do come true,
That there’s destiny for me and you
Do I believe in a second chance?
That there can be a life long romance?                                                                                                                                   On my Canvas of Dreams a vision still hazy                                                                                                                               I raise a brush to paint some story                                                                                                                                             A museum of memories or a fine Art gallery                                                                                                                           Will we find each other or  stay lonely?
