While In Anticipation

I await by the window, yearning.
Like the shore waits for her wavelets.
Like the nest allures the bird to come back
Like the flower impatiently expects Spring.

But you're far away...

Amongst the infinite horizons, I sketch your image.
And my longing I send to thee, with the wind.
She's my Hermes, the courier..

Sitting I'll be, all time by the window
Albeit I spend hundreds of years
I know, one day you'll definitely come
Hearts can't endure for long the loneliness.

    Your heartbeat is a drum roll of anticipation. What is worth waiting for is made precious as diamonds by time.
    There may be too many sunrise and sets between the realization of your dream but hold on to your dream.
    Someday dreams have a funny way of waking up real. (Report) Reply

    your similes prove intensity of anticipation enough Besa:

    Like the shore waits for her wavelets.
    Like the nest allures the bird to come back
    Like the flower impatiently expects Spring.

    a touch of infinity is there... but not without hope...! ! ! (Report) Reply
