Oh How We Waited

Updated on January 26, 2012



Oh how the days escape

as if they never had any meaning

and our moments of sleep and waking

become one and the same


corrosion


through time and fire

heartache transpires

and some things are lost

but we seek them in times



so desperate


for familiar feelings

and faces we missed

and chances we passed

and lives our life kissed


grazing


paths crossed by hope

sometimes it's fated

sometimes belated

but oh how we waited



for so very long



for this moment to come

for this time to arrive

for this chance to arise

so hard to describe



the way we keep breathing



in hope and out despair

inhale and exhale

caressing each breath

cherishing air


- For my amazing girlfriend

      Ben exciting to see a different slant to your writing. Light has broken through and a new dawn has come forth. I sense love in the air and I am so delighted for you. You both have found one another like soul mates will do.

      Now go out and enjoy each other to the fullest and fly together into each others world and soar like Eagles in the sky. Peace and blessings from me to the both of you.

      This was purely lovely. Each italicized phrase was a nice segway into each stanza. Very nice praise for the one in your life.
