Forever I’ll Wait
I sometimes feel my heart will burst
from wanting you so much. I can’t
explain in words of how I long to
feel your touch.
There is no way I can convey
this emptiness inside.
That seems to tear my soul to shreds.
As time goes by swiftly.
If I could merely hold you near
for just a little while
if I could simply talk to you
or see you smile.
To have you look into my eyes,
and wait to hear you say
something that would help me
something that would help me take
all the pain away.
If I have to wait forever,
I guess that’s what I’ll do.
For me, it will be worth it.
To finally be with you!
