I Will Wait For You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I will wait for you.
To recover from despair.
Renewed with a refreshened,
Point of view.
I will wait for you.

I will wait for you.
Freed of excuses to make.
And accusations too.
With a hope you found it to realize,
I have been in your corner.
To prove it done and shown to you.

When I left you to leave,
Not far from you I kept.
I wanted you to believe,
My appearance was distant.

It was you not me,
Who wanted to argue my experiences.
It was you not me,
In need to know my giving is dependable.
And I never thought of you,
As competition to beat.
I wanted with you a relationship.
To build upon with it secure and complete.

When I left you to leave,
Not far from you I kept.
I wanted you to believe,
My appearance was distant.
But away from you,
I was the one who wept.

I will wait for you.
To recover from despair.
Renewed with a refreshened,
Point of view.
I will wait for you.

I will wait for you.
Freed of excuses to make.
And accusations too.
With a hope you found it to realize,
I have been in your corner.
To prove it done and shown to you.

And now,
I am back and so glad...
You see within me,
Like I see within you...
Wants and wishes not to confuse.
But to accept what it is,
Each of us takes...
From the other to give.

I will wait for you.
Freed of excuses to make.
And accusations too.
I refuse to keep that between us.
When the doing breaks both our hearts.
