While I Wait

Warning: I haven't written poetry in so long I'm not sure this attempt will be a pretty one. Proceed at your own risk. :)

    While I wait
    I think back and remember
    The way your hands enveloped mine;
    Always as if my fingers were petals fragile.

    While I wait
    I hope you think of me too
    When the skies open up with melancholy showers.
    A snuggle under the covers!

    While I wait
    I hope you have moved on,
    Made your peace with your inner demons,
    And are not afraid of Life any more.

    While I wait
    I hope you haven't moved on
    From thoughts of me and all our bittersweet memories.
    Would that make me narcissistic or simply selfish?

    While I wait
    I will myself to be all-giving
    As you were in another life,
    Letting me fly while you wallowed in misery.

    While I wait, I pine.

    So lovely Sumi. Truly, truly lovely. Anymore I say will take away from how much I've enjoyed reading this one.
