The ebb and flow of wishing love

poem by: Robert Kohlhammer
Written on Mar 10, 2017


I am only one, but if I were with another
As of yet not , so my mind does wander
Become of old, to be a bother
Suppose I always chance an offer
Those of us hope not to suffer
The restless search one must proffer
kindling to warm thy heart from eerie squalor
In gratitude, Would I greet a passing stranger? 
Friendship squalls break out from lengthy slumber
Upon my request for someone to fall in there with me 
Until I find her, here seems lonely to be
My  unconditional attendance opens the  door  for my true absentee.
