Christy Merry

This reminded me of a poem I wrote many years ago (shared below):

True Love

You'll never take the quick train out at midnight.
You'll never leave me wondering what I did.
Even if I can't see
I will learn to believe
When I can't hear You breathe
And I'll learn to say,
"My Wesley will come for me."

You're not the kind to make promises and break them.
You're not the kind who's ever forced to make them.
Even when I can't see
I will learn to receive;
When the gift You gave
Is buried in the grave
And You seem far away
I will learn to say,
"My Wesley will come for me."

It's midnight and my wedding dress is on.
It seems I've never waited longer for the dawn.
Even when I can't see
And they call me naive
As I wait for the day
I have learned to say,
"My Wesley will come for me."

- 7/2/98 Christy Merry

p.s. the spacing is a bit different in the original, but this is the 'left-justified version'...
