Wait For Me

Trying to keep up
With the other children c
ry’s
“Hey you guys, wait up”
         “Wait for me”

e had just finished high school
And was ready to move on
She hugged her boyfriend tightly
And implored him “while I’m gone”
“Wait for me”

wait for me 3
The soldier kissed his little boy
And told him he must go
He said “take care of mommy
I’ll be back before you know
“Wait for me”   

wait for me 4
The gray haired man knelt down and gazed
At the name etched on the stone
My days are without purpose
Since you’ve gone on alone
“Wait for me”
                       

 Life’s moments are so fleeting
“Wait for me”

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer .wordpress.com as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
