I Wait For You

0 698


I wait for you as if I am waiting for home

I wait for you like she did for me to come back from school my first day

I wait for you like those polar ice caps – desperate and melting

I wait for you like that child in the candy line – almost outside himself in anticipation

I wait for you like he waited for the news, during the war – scared, yet hopeful

I wait for you, my mask, to come off me, for the pandemic to end

I wait for you, so badly. Hopelessly, yet full of hope. As if I am waiting for home.
