Waiting 2

You’ve waited in the wings

Been the understudy

Played supporting act

Blurred in as an extra

 

All this time

 

You’ve yearned and burned

Bemoaned and beseeched

For your dream to come true–

Thunderous applause just for you

 

All this time

 

You’ve rehearsed all your lines

Strewn them across the stage

Dreamt of the exhilaration

Of receiving that standing ovation

 

All this time

 

She stood there beside you

Or watched among the crowds

Hoping that you would see

Her face beaming in the dark

 

All this time

 

Love’s been waiting there for you

And now the day is finally yours

You can’t believe that it’s come true

All this time, she encored just for you

Spin me a yarn one last time

With your delicate silky threads

Let’s weave the intricacies of the rhyme

That swirl and spiral inside our heads

 

Tell me that my imaginings were real

When I became entangled in your web

That you still feel the same way I feel

Rising and falling in waves’ flow and ebb

 

I see the strands of longing in your lines

Trapped in a time that could not last

Memories of soulful love that still shines

Now a tapestry tucked deep in my heart

 

Spin me a yarn one last time

Let me trace the lustre in your verse

Remembering the love of a lifetime

Bound by design of the universe

Such a story

Scintillating –

The intrigue, the suspense

Riveting words that spellbound

 

Then the climax

Bittersweet ending

Still savouring the words

Of that pivotal chapter

 

A book we can’t put down.

The winter too long

Branches too bare

Shadows too solemn

The air too bleak

 

And then you hovered

A promising blush

Soft and beguiling

Melting the snow

 

You warmed my heart

Quickened my pulse

Exhaled my breath

Clouded my judgement

 

I have fallen for you!
