Now longing humbled
and love endured
dreams mirrored roots
intwined pursuit
no one else, nowhere,
eyes for you and memories shared:

Here I’ll wait
In plain sight
With no end in date
With this heart in eternal flame
Skin cleaned by pain and shame
Lit abright with your joy
And touched by fate
Longing for hands
impassioned embrace
for ease and laughter,
in silence
here I’ll wait
