This is a poem that a woman can relate to in life. The refusal of ones
time, affections and love can be hard. But if we try one day the tables
maybe turned and love will be shared.

I thought it was a gorgeous poem. I totally related to it, i met someone
from another who changed my life in two weeks, i fell inlove...but i still
wonder if i'll ever see him again. I'm grateful for the experience.Thank
you Maya for articulating it for me.
