TITLE: Why I Choose to Wait

Dedicated to every person who believes that true love waits and who is willing to wait for God to reveal His perfect plans for their life

The moonlight builds a marble staircase
Which spirals to the clouds of bliss;
As dancing hearts lead us along
Why can’t we have all that we wish?

We’re soaring on the winds of love,
Where whispered words infatuate;
With every step in happiness
What is the reason we should wait?

But love is more than clouds of bliss,
Or marble stairways in the sky—
True love is choosing what is best
And letting my desires die…

When our hearts dance in waves of moonlight,
Let sacrifice direct the way,
For Christ defined the path of love
Denying feelings to obey—

I love you, Dear, with all I am,
So much that I won’t hesitate
To give myself for what is best—

And that is why I choose to wait…

Oh I wish every young couple would read this beautiful poem and apply it to their relationship. You packed a punch into this short poem.

Wonderful message--and from a poetic standpoint, I love the soft alliteration in the second stanza. Lovely entry.

I'd love to see this with a different title, something more poetic that doesn't take away from the impact of your last line.

This is very, very worthy of publication.

You have wonderful advice wrapped in poetic words. I love your first line; it's beautiful.

I feel you are God's mouthpiece in this poem. So eloquent--like music that touches the heart.

I like this poem very much! I know it's a few months later but this is a job so well done I had to say something :)

Keep Up the Great Work,
Elizabeth B.
