Waiting - Poem by Matthew Hyatt

I stand and wait for you
Through the cold wind and rain
for you to come back
and say your goodbyes
to the one you left behind
when you left something snapped in my mind
Your shoe was all we could find
I was the one who thought you could fly
That was four years past
For an eternity
I stand and wait for you

    It all comes down to one word: poetic talent. You absolutely convey a deep message deep inside your poem, I like it. I also find it sad and meaningful at the same time.

    Kind Regards

    I can relate to this. I find it well penned. Interesting, isn't it, how we expect someone who has left to return to say goodbye. As it. t x (Report)Reply
