                hand side border


Like a cat waiting
To pounce
You hide ahead of me
Secreted on the trail
This marathon of life
Upon which I run
Unending in its path
And monotonous
But for you
Who stands out
From this dreary slog
As a tree stands tall
And proud
You are the redwood
Of my world
But still a passion
I have yet to find
A companion true
And a friend
Of the highest worth
Your beauty not yet seen
But known by a faith
Born from a hope
And knowledge
That you are there
Waiting at the vanguard
Of my poor heart
