Adam waited

In that place
Of emerald beauty
There the world was small
I was told by his Majesty
The plants and animals were mine
To watch over
I gave names to them all
They were my companions
I was waiting in the garden
Alone for so long
My heart was lonely
It was hardening in sorrow
I looked upon this beauty
And saw none who looked as me
I was a beast but without cubs
I was without something I
Couldn't explain but haunted me
When the King came to see
I told him
My heartbreak
And he saw that
Gave me one
Who I now knew
Fulfilled me inside
Tears rolled down
For I was complete
She was made of flesh
Looked more beautiful
Than all the garden held
And was my companion
