Treasure Island

(27 june 1992 / pakistan)

Perpetually Waiting

still like a statue
i stand and watch
watch you walk away from me
your footsteps leading you to a new place
stomping on my love's symphony
my arms still stretched wide
come back to them
that's where you belong
in my embrace
in my heart
my eyes over brimming with hope
the hope of your return
the hope of our reunion
'just turn back once
see what you are leaving behind'
that's my constant prayer
but your footsteps go unfaltered
leading you to your destiny
i wait for the day when you'll realize
it is your destiny
that you now leave behind
my spirit, still intact
my love, still unhampered
i know you'll come back to me
farewell, my love
farewell, my darling
so go on now
but when you return
you'll find me still waiting
my arms still stretched wide
my heart ready to reunite

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
