Where were you?
I waited and waited and waited.
I witnessed the sunsets, saw it as the sun became one with the ocean at last, gold embracing the deep sapphire
I watched as the gentle autumn wind teased the dried leaves, watched as they fell and kissed the ground
I watched the snow fall, saw it as it delicately settled on the barren branches, covering the brittle brown with the softest of whites
I saw the drizzling showers, watched as they shyly nuzzled against the mellow laughter emanating from under a shared umbrella
I waited I waited I waited
But where are you?
“I’ll see you on your birthday.” You had promised, had smiled as you did and left with a hug, whose warmth I stil craved.
And I had promised to wait.
A year has passed.
It’s my birthday today. I’m still waiting, but where are you?
