In Waiting


I waited
but a year too long
and in that year
you were gone
...my delay...
never was I
to see your face
to hear your voice
feel your warm embrace
...my delay...
now I find
I've done it again
not set out
a new path to begin
...my delay...
these pieces lie
like a puzzle
my questions
lie like a riddle
...my delay...
life it teaches
and teaches well
to grasp each moment
to come out of our shells
bravely
...no delay...
I've paid a price
and now, paid twice
I am never to
see his face
to hear his voice
to feel his embrace
...my delay...
lifes too cruel
it sometimes seems
heartbreaking,
these happenings
twists and turns
come much too quickly
and such a price
I have paid
and all because
...I delayed...
