Will you wait,
I wondered softly,
staring at the sky.
Silence answered
my whispered words,
then footsteps
moving away.
I wanted to scream,
to beg and plead,
but instead
I let you go,

and so

years go by,
and so do you,
crossing paths
from time to time,
a smile,
a few words,
and still, I’m here
wanting you
to change, to realize,
but never saying
all those things,
asking if you
still care too.

I’ll wave goodbye
and watch the sky,
never quite letting go.
