Cry Me A River - Poem by Collette Anderson Williams

Thundering emotions fill my heart
In the quest to find true answers.
I bear my pain in bittersweet anguish
waiting for you -
to cry me a river.

The ‘forever times' continue to go by
Whilst I sit patiently and stealthily -
hoping to caress your heart
to hear you -
cry me a river.

My strength I gained
From the tender words you
often whispered -
the longing in my heart
to hear you
cry me a river.

Numbed by fear you'll not stay,
I go in search of reasons
why I should walk away -
‘cause you won't
cry me a river.

Yet - still, my sweet love,
With pregnant possibilities,
My heart holds you guardingly,
as new birth of love
springs within me
with hopes that someday -
you'll cry me a perpetual river.
