I'M Still Waiting... - Poem by B.. Alexander

Throwing away another spent calendar
I'm tossing another slice of my heart into the wind
I'm still waiting...

I feel all I have known is the length of this wait
And all I've been doing is biding worthless time
And still waiting...

What difference has it made to me, this waste
What have I gained so far for my blind patience
And still waiting...

Oh, nine years... nine years!
I've been waiting
I'm still waiting
But I don't know what for

I'm still waiting
Is it for you?

On this moon-lit beach
In this silver-soaked bay
Cliffs hung over me and you
Oh, please tell me it's you!

Tell me it's you!

(2009)
