Poems by Debashish Mahapatra

But I know I have to wait

a poem by Debashish Mahapatra

But I know I have to wait
Until the time is right
It seems so far away
That I think I am losing my mind

I want to breathe in your scent
And keep it with me all day long
I want to taste your love for me
By kissing your sweet lips

I want to feel your body next to me
So when you leave for a while I can hold on
I just want you to know
That I really do love you

When the day comes and we are together
You will always know and feel this
I will always hug, kiss and love you
Every moment of the day and night

You will never have another touch unfelt.
