I WAITED

Gone in spilt seconds One. Two. 
I almost lost count, 
A decade or two 
So it seems.  

 
Woke up this day to see it is the dawn Of the third.
Yes, my eyes No tears found.
 
My heart, yes
Caress the presence,
The absence, it cherishes more. This familiar
terminus The sole of my feet once tread.
 
Stiff and still I waited for a cozy flight
Happy! I got this lift of hand.
But, why offer these golden
thorns?
Deserve I less a crown of trust?
 
I would await……
The glamorous homecoming
That befits my heart to blossom.
