On Longing

Every day brings me closer

to the day that will change my life

I can’t wait

and yet

I want to hold on forever

I don’t want to miss this feeling

but I need to be done with it soon

More than anything, though,

I crave to meet you

Nine months seems cruel

too long a time to wait for me

just to see your pretty faces

and hold you in my arms

even if you’ll just be taken again

I want for you to be happy

and I want for them to be happy

and I just can’t wait

the day is coming

that will change my life

and better yours

forever
