Waiting For You

By: Denishea Young

Waiting and waiting

For you to catch up.

Long must I wait

Patiently I stand.

By your side at your command

Ready, hoping, debating.

Time passes by

still I stand.

side by side

Stride after stride

my gait slows to match yours

Should I wait?

I wonder

Should I pass you by

My journey would be complete.

no longer biding my time

waiting and waiting for you

But then epiphany

The reason I wait

The reason I sigh

and do not wail and cry

my boredom and frustration on high

my journey would be done

completed in a jiffy.

Yet you would be missing

no laughter, no smile,

no whiling away the time

no idle chatter.

no reassuring warmth.

There would be me and only me.

Alone….

So wait.

Impatiently I do

sometimes with a sigh or two.

But I will always wait for you.
