The long wait ...



To the one I have been waiting for,

Find my love - - still young and enamoured,
read through this li’l note and give me your word.
It’s been a score that you’ve managed alone,
You’d live for them, but now they’re grown.
They’ll choose their ways ‘n will be gone,
solitude - - is what you will own –
or maybe you’ll shuttle like a birdie over net,
so why not hold my hands instead? -  let’s build our new nest!

Continuing the wait…

    1. Ah! no direct story as such.. that's a thought I had initially for some other prompt, failed there, so executed it here :D

      Really glad you liked this... the prompt was too good :)

  4. "Solitude is what you will own". It makes me think of an empty nest and then building a new nest. I love the line about the new nest, and "continuing the wait..."
