Waiting.

leave a comment »

Time is the distance
between us and together.
Even if you were next to me
we would be miles apart;
but this old watch
by my bed
keeps on ticking
by your picture,
eroding away
at my waiting
to see you again.

I miss you.
Do you miss me?
I can’t see you.
Can you see me?
When I feel you,
do you feel me?

Is that you
in my dreams?

Nothing here lasts forever.
Waiting will one day disappear,
and all this longing will end.
Just as flesh and bone could not hold
your restless spirit within,
so too will this time
pass away to eternity,
put to rest this aching heart,
and bring to life my soul.

Since all this time
I’ve been waiting,
have you been waiting too?
At the end of this life’s journey,
will what I find be you?
