I hear your voice calling me into the darkness of the night.

Longingly. Patiently.

I hurry down and see you waiting for me.

You reach your hand out for me to hold on to.

You look into my eyes and whisper,

Come, let’s fly.

Fly away into the wilderness of the night skies.

Longing

I am sorry, I was away.

When I arrive,

I will search in your eyes

for longing and desire.

I guess,

you would miss me.

 

When I arrived,

 You never turned my way.

Or look towards me.

You even failed to realize,

I was away. 

 

I am standing by your side.

With longing and love in my eyes

Hoping, one day you’ll turn my way.
