Anticipating a Smile

Here I wait not wanting to be alone
Looking forward to some time together
I call but you fail to pick up your phone

My spirits started light like a feather
Anticipating seeing a smile on your face
Looking forward to some time together

So here I sit looking out into space
Wondering if you have forgotten me
Anticipating seeing a smile on your face

I look and I look but I do not see
I search for your car coming down the road
Wondering if you have forgotten me

My heart is heavy I need to unload
hope diminishes as the minutes pass
I search for your car coming down the road

I wonder if you have run out of gas
Hope diminishes as the minutes pass
Here I wait not wanting to be alone
I call but you fail to pick up the phone

    Wonderful descriptions of the gradual fading of hopeful anticipation. Everyone has felt this.

    Thanks Charmaine, currently my sun is at high noon but I do know the sun will set. Fortunate for us the Son has risen and one day he will be all the light we will ever need. We will live in the new Jerusalem and he will be our light,

    Its as if a relationship coming to an end..And We keep hoping..and We keep waiting.Each day seems like a year..I can feel a sad feeling here..Yet after each sunset there is a sunrise with or without the car engine 's sound and its return.

    My good sir, all you HAD to do was dial "1" before my area code. I'd have TOTALLY answered your call man. =D This was a beautiful piece.
