Chasing My Dream

On this 3rd day
	of 2011
I sit and wait
	hoping to see you
no matter how briefly.

What a horrible day
	you've had,
and you're week
	is shaping up
to be another long,
	tiring challenge
to your mind, emotions,
	spirit and body.

Would that I could
	help build you up
in all the areas
	of your life
that need healing,
	but that doesn't
appear to be
	God's plan for me
in your life.

So, what is His purpose
	for me in your life?
I'd like to think I know
	but I don't
and it hurts me
	not to be able
to do what I want
	for you in your life.

I seem to be left
	with little more
ability to help you now
	than I had 20+ years ago
and I'm still
	chasing my dream
to live with
	and love you
for the rest of our lives.

I am so very tired
	of dreaming
about us being together
	but what else
can I do for now?

I don't want you
	to stop needing me
and I won't
	just leave you again
as either of those actions
	would break my heart,
so I'll not think
	of them.

But my concern
	for you, your health
and well being
	is so strong lately
it's hard to focus
	on anything else.

Maybe this is wrong,
	but taking care
of you has always
	been part
of this dream
	I'm still chasing
minute by minute,
	hour by hour
each and every day.

I plead with God
	for my dream
to somehow
	come into reality
in this year of 2011.
