Still Waiting


Days with you are short
without you they feel like years
and everytime you leave
it gets harder to hide my tears

I'd give anything to stay with you
i die when you walk away
but no matter how i ask
i can't make you stay

And now when you go
i can't stop my heart from breaking
i can't stop crying
and my chest won't stop aching

I feel so lost and alone
as i drag myself to bed
and, tearing up, i wonder
what else i could have said

Maybe if i told you
that i feel incomplete
every time you get in your truck
and drive off down the street

But i didn't and you did leave
so now i feel alone
oh i wish i made you stay
with all the love i've shown

But again you have left
and here i wait and stay
and i'll stay here waiting
for you all night and day

I'll be right here
waiting for your embrace
and when you come back...
into your arms, i will race.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
