Longer

You told me once you were not ready,
Your heart unsure, your hands unsteady.
But I’ll wait, I’ll wait for you,
Until the sky’s no longer blue.

I will wait here at the shore
For perhaps a little more.
I’ll wait for you, until you’re stronger,
And even then a little longer.

I am impatient for the day,
When you may chose to walk away
And take another path. Down a road I cannot follow.
But I’ll wade here in the shallows

Of a heart that could delve deeper.
But the cost is so much steeper.
So as the light will fade away,
I might start out on my own way

To take a road that you won’t follow.
We might cross paths among the willows.
Will you remember who I was?
The promises I made were rushed.

But now that I  have gotten stronger
I will wait for you no longer.
You told me once you were not ready,
Your heart unsure, your hands unsteady.
I waited.  The sky’s longer blue,
And now I cannot wait for you.
