I Am Waiting

Written By: Praveen  |  Category: Life  |  (14) Comments  |  

One, two, three, four, five,
ten, twenty, thirty, forty…
time ticks on slowly,
minute by minute;

as i pace up and down the corridor,
i cannot help wonder how long?
how much longer should i be waiting?Waiting for You

as i wait, the stars have come out,
and the moon shines bright,
and the cold wind brushes against my chin;

When you came into my life,
it was a dream come true,
two identical minds, joined together by fate
for eternity;

sitting here with a memory,
of you and me, of  the happy times and the sad ones,
the ups and downs, of passionate embraces and
tender kisses, loving words and romantic nights;

waiting, to hold you in my embrace once again,
the memories etched deep into my consciousness,
it’s been so long now,
so long that you have been gone;

gazing out of the window,
i am still trapped in this mortal body,
i wish i had wings and can fly,
to be in your arms;

as time keeps ticking forward,
wishing you were here and near,
but here i am waiting,
don’t know for how long;

silently holding my breath,
passing time with thoughts,
of us together,
here i am patiently waiting to join you in heaven;

    Till at dawn,

    Dawn of my life,

    I waited, I waited,

    As long as I can!!

    Do well praveen, its good and refreshing.. Waiting is a truth we have to do more and more for one or another one thing or another thing because life is like a river… it will go and go change is rapid so we have to wait… Good luck good imagery and narration thanks..

    there are many things in this world i could live without
    many things in this world i could give up and forget about
    many things in this world that do not require much of my attention, nor the infinite care, love and kindness i can display.

    i’ve been through days where i’ve wondered what it is i fear the most.
    is it excrutiating endless physical pain, is it being deeply hurt by someone i love, is it discovering the unknown or adapting to a new life or is it simply losing you…

    the thought of losing you goes beyond explanation
    when i think of the day you would take your last breathe and allow the lord to release your soul to the heavens above
    i cringe,
    my heart sinks and i cant help but shed a sad tear.
    i know that death is inevitable, someday, somewhere, somehow god will decide to steal you away from me.
    that day will be saddest day of my life, that day will be the day of my death as well,
    i am alive because you are alive, and when your heart beats for the last time, a piece of my heart will be taken away forever and hopefully it’ll travel along with you to your journey to heaven so that one day when i enter the big gates i will get to see you and take back that piece you kept safe for me while i was still on earth, and then we can both continue to live for eternity just as the good lord has promised…
