The waiting game
The waiting game is hard,
as every moment without you is eternal.
The long pause in between is a challenge,
as I don't have you to lean on.
The anticipation feels as though it's going to kill me,
because you're not there to save me.
I expect you to show back up at any moment,
but it's never soon enough.
The longer you're gone,
the more I yearn for your presence.
The delay is something I hate,
but your return is something I crave.
In the end it's worth it,
because I always have one thing to look forward to,
and it's just to see you.
