Won’t You Come Show Me The Way? (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #30)   Leave a comment

My love found a place 
Building up my thoughts like bricks
This is what my heart's been waiting for.
Alone in my room, I still think of you,
Oh, I wish that I could read your mind
Won't you come show me the way?

Heartbeat pumping
Like a dream ready to explode
This is what my heart's been waiting for.
I'd steal you the moon, and the sun,
And the stars, every one
Won't you come show me the way?

Complicated feelings
Always rushing through me
You keep me holding on
So when the night falls, I'll be on your side
I know that I’m worthy
Won't you come show me the way?

– SR Romney 2022
