Waiting for the Lost

Wait for me when I get back,
just wait for me…

I rub my weary eyes, as I write this
hoping you’ll understand,
hoping you’ll take our memories with you
as we travel on different roads
until that day comes
when I find that path
that leads me back to you…

I was forced on this journey, and so were you.
Neither of us wanted this, but maybe this is what we need.

Now I truly am lost, and my eyes wander off…
Everything’s a blur now,  and I grasp at cotton candy clouds
sugar crystals sticking on my warm fingers, and that is all.

    There's so much here, Nikko...depth of feeling...Gosh! I love the way you think. And yes, I was wondering about the name. ;) Also, you're right, the books were very small...thin pages...tiny print. They were made specifically for what we were doing. In the three trips that I made to do this work, I got(total) over 5 thousand across...only a small thing in the scope of things.

    "I was forced on this journey, and so were you./Neither of us wanted this, but maybe this is what we need."...this mini stanza is sublime, Nikko! Great write! Ruben.

    Enigmatic lines Nikko, Hmmm. Don't be lost, find your way back! Thank you for saying hello to me again by following my entries in PS. No I am not familiar with NS, but I will look for his works now that you've told me. You are a great poetess Nikko. Any plans of publishing your works? I would love to see your collections at National Bookstore! Love Dalila

    Aha niks!! here again... it's a pleasure always and feels like homecoming. I've my good intentions to be more frequent here:)) but at job I'm like a full timer,, so till I retire... another 20 yrs or so but as they say we don't.. anyways re: Fern- the seeds are actually seeds :)) which are present as dark spots bordering the underneath of those leaves... at least that is what I remember from my 11th/ 12th botony...wait now need to confirm ...if not I'll look silly writing that last line :)
