Waiting

 

I have waited so long

for you,

why must I always be waiting?

Sitting on wooden benches,

strolling along the seafront,

waiting,

waiting,

waiting,

normally in vain.

 

Those long months we are apart,

destined only to dream,

still I am

waiting,

waiting,

waiting.

Why do I persevere?

What hold is it you have?

when it would be easier

to despair…

 

So I think this is goodbye,

over before

it ever really began,

but no more to be

waiting,

waiting,

waiting,

unless…

maybe…

until…

the next time?

Beautiful poem, dear Lynn! The ending is really the best part of it: waiting,
unless...
may be...
until...
the next time?
With love and warmest wishes, Larisa x

I like this - It reminds me of a song by The Smiths...

'I know it's over
And it never really began
But in my heart it was so real'

seriously though,
we loved the ending especially.

We think,probably as you no doubt
have gone through,
the teen years
of being the most trying,
when it comes down to the on and off's etc
of love.

Gonna make love now-
to fish'n'chips
gread'n'gutter(haha)
and a dirty big mug(not mine
and not actually dirty)
of Yorkshire tea.

Even if it is in the Rhondda!
come on builders! get your finger out!

catch you later Lynn-
now where's my cap? haha.

And I was going to make some quip about buses until I read your comment Lynn!

Waiting is the hardest thing ever when you really want something to happen. I think you capture that well - also the lack of conviction and self delusion so many of us suffer from! x
