I have waited for you to see me, I’ve waited patiently. I’ve waited.
Through misinterpreted, direct communications, I’ve waited.
I gave you love unconditionally, even when you didn’t know how to love yourself. I’ve waited
When I met you, that thing others called love, but I never knew, became real to me. So, I waited.
As you ” got yourself together”, “figured it all out.” I exercised patience. Still I waited.
Hoping someday that you would see me for me, recognize what stood before you as I waited.
Silent prayers for you I whispered, for your safety and covering as you had to depart from me. I waited.
My search was over, I dreamed of you, as I did before ever finding you. I waited.
It is said that “waiting is a sign of true love and patience, anyone can say I love you, but not everyone can wait and prove that it’s true. ”
I am aware that you often have to wait for what is worth having, hence… I waited!
Not that I kept a record of time, but looking back, time wasn’t on my side as I waited.
Hours turned to days, that turned to weeks, becoming months, passing of seasons, dawning of a new year, two, becoming what now seems like eternity… but out of love, I waited.
I waited for you to realize that for me, it was you.
Suddenly I realized that I wanted and deserved to be the one that you were waiting for, not solely the one waiting on you.
Maybe one day, I’ll be what you need, but I am pretty sure that it will be too late for you to want me. I think today is when I have started to give up.
Although my heart called out to you, wanting you, loving you, protecting you, it was also neglected!
Before you say, “just because the timing is off doesn’t mean it’s the end of our story”, I am aware of that.
Also know that it is the end of my story with you because, you waited too long…
And sadly, I’m tired of and done with waiting on you!!
