Here i sit
patience wearing off
and anxiety
mounting day by day
as i wait
the wait
for Him,the one
to come to me
feel his breath
sense his love
close the distance
that lingers between us
sun has almost set
fishermen cast away their nets
playing with the sand
as the mind wanders
picking up the stray shells
hear a distant music
seems to get closer
its the phone
displaying his name
smile props on my lips
as i answer
savouring his voice
Time frozen
in my mind….
