Waiting - Poem by David Taylor

Thinking why
Asking when
Going out
Staying in
Restless mind
Body thin
Holding on
Letting go
Loving it
Forgetting them
Feeling cold
Sometimes hot
Springtime goes
Summer shows
Rain falls
Humidity climbs
Memories fade
In my mind
Heart beats
Skin perspires
Remembering many
Past desires
Doorbell Rings
I arise
Hoping that
I like
What I find
Open door
Let you in
You arrive
Life begins.
