Why Not Now

A poem by Beverly Stock.

Seems like waiting is all we do. I want to see you. Why not now? It's not that hard. Buy a ticket and travel near or far. To be both in one place. Why not now? Explanations overdone and thousands of miles overcome. Why not now? Years, it seems, we've had this dream. Time stands still until. I'm with you once again. Why not now? Heaven and earth has been moved once or even twice. The results Are always nice. Why not now? We're getting older, no surprise. That same intensity is in your eyes. My impulse is so very hard to disguise. Why not now? What task need I perform until I'm nestled in your arms? What devil to pay or dragon to slay? Why not now? I fear I'll take this to my grave. I'm a role model for how not to behave. Always longing for you. Why not now?
