waiting

I know I'll miss the way the light lingers
when you turn it off

the way the silence feels eternal

curtains closed, a sliver of moonlight
through the window

waiting

hanging upon each note

as if it is the last but
it never is

waiting for you to find me
my love

I'm not ready yet,
soon

we can bathe in this light
- tangled -

when you do.
