Voices fade to the background

Where life goes back to what we know

Instead of what we want.

Sit playing with a piece of paper

Wondering if I wanted you badly enough

Perhaps you would just appear.


The curtains fall on a play

Everyone has loved

Nobody wants to move

In case everyone will come out again

Act the play all over.


I sit and wait to hear word


Like the beach waiting for a wave

Or the grass waits for the sun every morning.


Tenderly I’ll wait for you

While my heart beats out of chest

And my soul refuses to leave your side.
