The Wait


I have searched for you in my life

I knew you were always there, dancing around me
But never my partner
Passing by me, invisible to the eye
So many years growing and learning apart

Not seeing you, but knowing you
Feeling you without your touch
Wishing for you to hold my hand in life
To dry my tears
Where were you?

Why did I not know you before?
Our lives to be lived separately for reasons we do not know
You are the piece that was missing
The Yang to my Yin
The start and the finish

You finally heard my cry
You have come to me
And you have taken my heart
Replacing the emptiness that was always there
You have filled my senses and now you live with my soul
