This - Poem by Janine Alyssa Navarro

You were unprepared
when she entered
into your life,
there was no warning.
You were scared
but you loved her
more than you can explain.
You whispered
How long must I wait?
I said, just a little more
and you confessed.

You were happy
when she felt the same
holding hands
kissing when you can.
You went away
with her, far away
I stayed
just in case, for you.
You came back, crying
How long must I cry?
I said, just a little more
and you fell asleep.

You waited
for a shadow that never came
in the dark you were
I saw you fall apart.
You waited a bit more
for her to come running
but she never did
she was long gone.
You kept waiting, crying
How long must I wait?
I said, just a little more
maybe you’ll see me

but you never did.
