#9 Waiting

Waiting for you
Dear, to come –
… Oh, the times we’ve had
Oh, the dreams we shared
Waiting for reasons to fill in –
While Heart gets into musing
We lose them into voids

Waiting over at
The table –
Without, cups of coffee
Yeah, so long, I’ve waited …
Waiting for the dreams to die away
After you’d decided
Not to come, not to be mine

Waiting over cups
Of coffee –
You liked it with cream
And I liked it black –
Waiting for words to make sense –
For life to make some sense,
I lose reason to live

Waiting for me
To return –
From dreaming about you,
Those words said in hush
Waiting for those hands to hold mine
…The way you walked back
Without kissing goodbye

For Sid,
Get well soon.
