Poetic

A poem for ICLW

Waiting, watching, wishing
The days to by and
My arms as empty as ever

Never will I know the weight
Of a sleeping soul on my chest
That is part me and part him

Faking smiles and playing strong
Never letting anyone feel
Awkward or pity or worse

Saying something comforting
That is anything but
Everything happens for a reason

A cry, a kiss, a cuddle
A test, a tear, I break
I would trade my sleep for that

I may never know your love and
You will never know my pain
But the grass will always be greener

One difference we both know is true
That you wouldn’t give it up for anything
So I don’t give up
