Authors notes: This is a real short one sort of in response to Pia's last piece but something that has been crawling around all day...
"If I wait"
If I wait another day, will it be easier
will I not miss you so,
will my heart not beat a helpless rhythm at the very thought of you
If I wait another day, could I manage just a bit more
to convince myself that I am only lonely
that it is not you that I truly miss,
convince myself that what we have is not once in a lifetime
I find myself searching for others -
yet looking behind myself all the while...
caught in a helpless waiting game -
waiting for what... I don't know
I know time is taking you from me
day by day
In time I could be only a memory
And it kills me to think that it could come to only that
I feel as though I stand on sidelines always -
smiling when you smile,
feeling stronger when you do,
yet always, always, watching waiting wondering...
If I wait another day...
