Hours spent, waiting
Looking beyond the vista
With love the heart shrouded
An aura of hope encasing
Shadows of one long gone
Shaping a formless horizon

Far apart, sequestered
Looking ahead, never back
Avoiding your piercing gaze
That conjures hopes lost
Your love pricks my breast
In tandem toeing my steps

Mother, wait no more
The pain of the land,
Pawned my lonely heart
Unfeeling I walk from the past
Dazed, groping for a light
But still, I long for the dark
Darkness to clothe this waste

Hours spent, waiting…
