My Soul Awaits

My soul awaits that elusive hour
When true love finds my lonely heart.
A golden knight in shining armor
Sent to me by Cupid's dart.

Until then, my heart lies empty,
A vessel with no drink to fill.
For I am half of all I should be
While waiting here for love's sweet thrill.

My heart keeps waiting and so my soul
That special hour when he shall come.
For then our souls will join together...
For then our hearts will beat as one.

My soul awaits, as does my heart,
For that very special day
When he shall enter my life's garden
And linger there with me, to stay.
