Waiting for you

I’ve been watching you, the way you’re so fine

It’s not that I want you or need you at all

But I have this heart that without me you’ll fall

It’s not that I cannot live without you,

It’s not that you’re ready for me

You’re stronger than that,

But with me, You’ll be stronger still

When I take you on,

If you’re heart is beating for me

When you invite me in,

If pure love is what you need,

I’ll be here waiting

Romance

Reading some of the romantic poems and literature that comes out of India, I saw a lot of heart brokenness in the stories, when one’s sweetheart leaves. It then occurred to me that these stories reveal much tender feeling towards love and romance. They way that the love wasn’t tossed into the dirt to be trampled over or thrown into the ocean with a million fishes eager to eat it up. I found the sensibility, the sense that love is treated tenderly, better than many romances that get produced in the English language.
