Waiting, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Tissot-Waiting

Waiting, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The waters are still, here I sit waiting;
Waiting to hear what will your answer be.
No more will I wait anticipating,
That in your life there will be only me,

Tis true I am moved by your tender touch,
I feel alive by your smile sent my way.
My heart says it is yours I wish to clutch,
However from my desire I will not sway.

It is my desire to be man and wife.
No more lonely nights in my bed alone.
The home together made shall be so rife,
From your many seeds which will have been sown.

Let it be known I make it very clear,
That we shall be married within a year.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Waiting painted by James (Jacques) Joseph Tissot was sold by Christie’s for $965,500 GBP, but no where can I find the year it was painted. The important point is that the expression on the woman’s face is what really got my attention.  Such determination.  For sure whatever was in her mind she was intent of achieving her goal.  That look was enough for me to write this poem.
