I felt the grave every time I waited for you
I loved you a million times than I thought
But you went away and you told me to wait.
I had to wait as you played tennis with my heart
As you kicked every beautiful thought I had of you like a soft ball
I waited for you at the bridge, were are our two stones are.
I waited for you to see but that seems to be forever
I continued to wait in the rain, crying.
Wait! You said, let me run after the wind
Maybe I will get a better marriage proposal
Wait let me play with the Sun probably it has a better engagement ring.
I waited as my pillow became wet and dry.
I thought I had malaria, I guess that was my mind playing tricks on me.
I waited for your call for us to dance under the stars
But all I received was a short sms saying “Wait let me think about it”
