The Encounter, 1988


The Encounter

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Your eyes beckoned to me, begging, pleading

To be loved the way I wanted to love.

So in that moment

That briefest of moments

When I saw that glint of a tear

I knew I would always

Want you near me

For you were someone so rare.

A heart pure and good

A soul understanding

The needs of a woman so lost

A woman who needed but would never demand

A love that was beyond cost.

You reached out to me

With your eyes so tender

And gave all you had to give

So in that moment

This woman surrendered

And opened her heart

Began to live.
