Waiting Almost Done

(01 September 2009, Cebu)

Now the waiting is almost done.
I lingered to see your shadow
With the sun on your back.
I passed the time to see
And to hold the sweet face
I pined for a long time.

Now the waiting is almost done
It seems you will not come.
See you then in another season,
Perhaps past this life and world.
I have not tarried around much
For fear of missing your coming.

Now the waiting is almost done.
As the last vestiges of sunlight
Prepare to hide beneath the horizon
And to kiss the heavens goodbye,
The tangerine sky fades to black.
Tomorrow holds much hope and promise.

Now the waiting is almost done.
Finally I am letting you go.
I am giving up the flimsy
Joy of your long awaited return
For tomorrow’s hope of new adventures.
I will salute the early dawn!
