Belief

I could not believe,
In you.
I had lived without
you for so long.
I had dreamed about
You and could not dare
To hope, that you would
Ever be real.
In my eyes you had
Become unattainable.
For I lost my faith,
In you to appear.

I could not believe,
In you.
I had awakened each day,
Shaking with tears,
For the loss of you,
With the dream.
I could not believe in you,
For to do so would,
Haunt my waking moments
And make my life a
Living agony

I could not believe in you,
When introduced.
Our eyes met and our
Hands touched.
I could not believe,
A dream could be as real,
As the rose you gave,
To me, or the thorn,
Which pricked my hand,
Or your lips that kissed,
The hurt away.
And I believed in you

Julie
