Everyday and every night, I long for your presence near. Waking up everyday, hoping in seeing your smile. Day by day, in my every wake, and when I look and you are not there, I just close my eyes and fold my neck, and imagine that you’re right there beside me. Making me feel I am attached to you. I may look as though I am a strong man, but the thing that's true is I am getting weaker everyday as I waited for your return.
I just want to be with you, I don't know if all my life I will wait. Waiting and waiting, trying to forget the unforgettable you. Like a melody that plays in my head, no matter how hard I try not to sing it, I kept on humming its tune. I don't know if to wait for you is the best thing to do, I really have no idea. When I am faced with difficult questions, I don't give up until I find its answers. But this question of uncertainty, of doubt, I can’t find the answers to it. And even though I know it is futile to wait, I just kept on waiting and waiting.
Is this Love that keeps me holding on to a love lost? If so, when will this love burn in time and fade away? Until I have no more strength left in me? Or until my heart beats no more?
