I remember lying beside you as we stared into the night. The stars were dancing in the sky, I saw them twinkle in your eye. I tried to count them… I saw your childlike face under the moon glow when you smiled and said that it’s no use, for it would be like counting how much you loved me. You said your love is like the stars. It will always sparkle in the still of the night to watch over me.
I remember walking home with you, and then it started to drizzle. Hand in hand we ran as the rain began to pour. I loved the cold raindrops running down my face, and the sound of your laugh when I danced in the rain. Under the tree we stopped, catching our breaths as you wrapped your arms around me. I felt the warmth suddenly crept in. You said your love is like the rain. It will fall from the sky to be where I am. I won’t be able to escape, even if I hide under the biggest tree.
I remember that warm and sunny day. We sat on that bench for hours, letting the world pass us by. I loved the sound of the wind as we sat quietly still. Your head leaning on my shoulder, our hands clasped tightly together. You said your love is like the sun. It will rise in the morning and shine constantly for me, to give me light and to warm my days.
But like the stars, your love left when morning came.
Like the rain, your love stopped just like that.
And like the sun, your love faded into the night.
And you left me here, waiting.
Waiting for the stars to shine.
Waiting for the rain to pour.
Waiting for the sun to rise.
Probably tomorrow, your love will shine again. Maybe next week, your love will pour again. Perhaps next month, your love will rise once again. How long, how long, shall I wait for you?
When something or someone finally comes.
Waiting, is one of the most agonizing thing to do. And just like dictionary.net said: To stay or rest in expectation. But why do we keep on doing it? Why we would put our self in that position wherein we are left alone, expecting for something that may or may not come?
Because, we know at the back of our minds, that it will all be worth it.
