it is here where i saw you last
your broad back facing the horizon
ready to conquer it,
for me
you said.

it is here where we began.
you took my hand
and from that doorstep
we faced the world together.
you promised
'all you see before you...'
you were ready to give me the world
but looking at you
was all the world i need.

so here i'd wait.

even as time pass,
colors fading
from the walls
of my world you've built,
even as decay conquer
the sturdy remnants of your presence,
even as cold seep in the cracks
of every memory,
i'd keep the warmth of your smile
inside these doors.

here i'd wait
for a trace of your shadow,
an echo of your laugh.
here i'd stay,
here i'd wait,
until you come home.

"...yesterday is only a dream, tomorrow, but a vision..."

this one dwells somewhere between loss and a sad expectancy called home. There's a real sense of time, of infinitely, endlessly waiting. Thoughtfully sad, beautiful

The sense of longing in these words crept out and took hold of me. The bond has to be fantastic to keep a stranded lover/friend/follower waiting quietly for so much as a trace of shadow, or echo of laugh. Beautiful.

The thought of that loneliness waiting for someone who won't come to you, but go elsewhere has overwelmed me too. Let's go drinking.........
