here is what I have found :
...
In Discovery

But
You seem unsure.
Are you ready?
Do you know me?
You seem unsure...
Do I offer too little,
Or is it too much?
You seem unsure.
Am I too late,
Or is it too soon?
I have known you for a thousand years,
In other times and other worlds
I have known your heart,
Your mind and your very soul.
We have traveled separately,
Through endless space and time
To be together here.
I have always known
That it would come to pass.
I have watched and waited.
I could enter a crowded room
And in an instant
Know that this was not
The time nor the place.
And now..
Today...
I hear a sound...
And I know...
I sense your presence...
And I know...
Your questions touch me.
You ask:
Will it always be easy?
Will it be forever?
I wish I could answer yes...
I can only say
Let's begin
To try
To do
To build
To breathe
To live
With patience
With care
With an open mind
Let us join the ages.
The tides flow.
The sun rises and sets.
The seasons come and go.
The moon and the stars
Light the night way
For each of us.
What we plant today
Will root and grow.
Let us plant a seed,
Love and protect it
Feed and warm it.
Surely a tree will rise
To take it's place in the sun
Let us plant today
The seed which will be
The tree of us...
Yes,
You are.
I understand because
I am too.
Each of us exists
Separate and alone.
This is your Spring,
your precious time
to blossom,
to be.
Will you be with me?
And now
At last,
We are...

Leonard Nimoy
.......................


From Leonard Nimoy’s You and I (? ):

I have known you for a thousand years,
In other times and other worlds

I have known your heart,
Your mind and your very soul.

We have travelled separately,
Through endless space and time
To be together here.
I have always known that it would come to pass.

....................................

I am.
I am ready.
I am ready to give.
I am ready to give and receive.
I am ready to give and receive love.
But, you seem unsure.
Are you ready?
Do you know me?
Do I offer too little?
Or is it too much?
You seem unsure.

Am I too late? or is it too soon?
I have known you for a thousand years,
in other times and other worlds.
I have known your heart, your mind, and your very soul.
We have traveled separately through endless time and space
to be together here.

I have always known that it would come to pass.
I have watched and waited, I could hear you in a crowded room
and known in an instant if you are happy or sad.

But this is not the time, nor the place,
and now today,
I hear a sound and I know, I sense your presence.
I know my questions touch you.
I ask you will it always be this way?
Will it be forever?
I wish that you could say yes, but you and I can only say
"Let us begin to try, to build, to live, to love with patience,
with care, and with an open mind".

The moon and the starts will light the nights way for us.
Let us plant a seed, love and protect it, feed and warm it.
Let us plant today the seed which will be the growing in us
tomorrow and forever.
The tree of us that will grow strong,
with love, patience, kindness, understanding, compassion.


I am.
yes, we are.
This is our time.
And now, at last we are side by side.
Together, opposed, in spite of each other,
because of each other.
In the midst of all the lies and painful sorrows,
lonely men with no tomorrow's.
Promises not meant for keeping,
curtains drawn, but not for sleeping,
on top of the mountain stands you and I,
above all the lies and painful sorrows.


The Eye of Time looks on in wonder,
the circus band blares out its number.
Gray heads setting in the sun,
Wondering what they might have done.


But in the center ring stands you and I.
In the beauty of our union from me to you,
My beautiful one, take my hand
I am so proud of you.
I believe the deepest impressions are made in those moments
when I say I love you.


I am an incurable romantic.
I believe in hope, dreams, and decency,
and the chance to learn and find love.
I believe in love , tenderness, and kindness
I believe in goodness, mercy and charity.
I believe in universal spirit.
I am moved by a couple, of any age, holding hands
as they walk down a city street.


Any living creature in pain makes me shudder with sorrow,
The cry of a seagull fills me with a sense of mystery
A rivers stream can move me to tears.
A lake nestling in a valley can bring me peace.


A wish for all mankind
The sweet simple joy that we have found together
I know that it will be the sunset and the sunrise,
the cold and the warm,
the sounds and the silences
The voices of the children.
Let us, you and I, celebrate the dreams and hopes that fill our hearts.


I will know you,
even if you come in Darkness,
I will know your Fragrance.


I will search for you.
I know that you will be searching for me too.
I will watch for you,
as I watch the day break, and the sun set.
I will listen for you
in the singing of the river
the mating of the tree branches,
and if we keep our hears open
surely we will pass through the
doors of loneliness
into the warmth of our love.

Taking time to love is what its all about.
It's what makes the clocks turn and the sunsets come true
As the tree of us Grows Tall Strong True Sincere and beautiful.
The tree of us which will survive the worlds hardships.
The great and glorious Tree of two peoples' Love for each other

Ilza, you own a collection of Leonard Nimoy's poetry?

I thought I was the only one!

There's only one line I consider quotable, though:

"I am an incurable romantic:
I believe in hopes, dreams, and decency."

A lifetime of love
You and I
