It seems the day will never pass
Until I hear from you at last
The phone lies still, no rings emit
As all night long by it I sit
And though I will myself to sleep
Sweet slumber dare not upon me creep.
‘Tis strange I feel the way I do
Is it perchance how you feel too?
How longer yet can I keep still
This heart that leaps by its free will?
The printed letters leap at me
Albeit I try my best to see
The open book before me lain
While visions of you come not in vain.
Words from this page may not stick fast
But thoughts of you shall forever last.
so turns another night to morn
but what night!
i sit alone
and yet my thoughts are drifting
far over mellow city lights
that lend their glow to silent vigil
with hidden stars and moon
sky shares my loneliness
from parting far too soon
though miles away you be
you’ll always be beside me
no other thoughts dare hover near
they know they merit no attention
not much ado they matter
time flies so quickly when you’re around
so slowly when you’re gone
if only time would share my plight
and linger longer when we’re together
not much is there that i can do
to hasten the minutes or still the seconds
what more is there to seek
but wait until
the days bring us yet closer?
