WAITING STILL

She would have waited

though some didn't,

on a street corner

she would have been there

waiting in a rooftop restaurant,

or by a tall oak streaked with light,

 

on a station concourse

I would have found her

I tell myself,

I tell myself she may be waiting still.

Thanks Hannah. One of my rare departures from cynicism.
Hope life is ok...

Thanks so much Tom, Branwell and Jon for your liking the poem.

I'm glad you like the idea of the forest meet. Much more earthy probably! He will wait as long as are looking - we can dream.

Nice one Ray. Loved 'tall oak streaked with light. ' Hope there's a 'he' still waiting somewhere!!!!
