This was the other photograph from my day at the Zoo.

I see the sun rise in the distance as I wait for you my love.
You promised me your swift arrival filled with love for me.
I wait as told for your arrival in your favorite place.
But here I sit and you’ve not come its been forever and a day.
This is the place where we first kissed it seemed like yesterday.
The years have passed too fast as they always do.
I sit and wait for you to come to comfort me this day.
But like the days before this one your presence is not felt.
I sit and wait for you to come have you forgotten me?
We talked about this special place that meant so much to us.
It was here that I first stole a kiss and caused your face to blush.
And here was where we made our plans if we might wed.
And it’s here that I gave you a ring to say you were my love.
And here it was that you told me you would have my son.
I wait for you before the sun each and every morning.
Its bright rays sing your name as I wait for you.
But no where in the distant do I see your smile.
Have you forgotten me my love I wait for you to come?
You passed so many years ago did you forget your promise?
I’ll wait for you forever more I’ve not forgotten you.
And with the passing of my soul I’ll wait and wait for you.
Until the sun comes no more I’ll sit and wait for you.

    This is gorgeous!! That is one magnificent tree. And the poem. I’m not joking, I need a hanky i’ts so sad. Agnes:))

  • My mother told me she would be waiting for me before she died so I thought about that the day I was at this place in the zoo and wrote this poem this evening as I thought about posting this photograph.
    I hope where ever she is she’s not waiting I’ll catch up!LOL

  • Oh Agnes I forgot to say thank you for your kind comment thats quite nice to know that you were moved by this so was I as I thought about loving someone and maybe seeing them again. Well if not then always having them inside and living with their love as a reminder that they were special to me.
    Living and loving is a wonderful thing but it also brings such deep sorrow. Sometimes its just good to honor the people you love with a tear and a poem!

    I’m not a big softy, but I think there’s more than that tree needs a big hug:))

  • Nights in a foreign land can lead to nights of deep thoughts and longing for truly loving and caring friends that only come with long relationships.
    Like the word foreign thats what you are to many people when your not native to their country.
    But I like to feel me and this is a part of me too besides the other things. So for my book “Flowers and poems for her” I want to convey all that I am and thats layed out here on RB for the world to see.
    An 4 you too my friend!
    I’ll take that hug too!LOL Thanks for giving!

    That tree is so beautiful, the trunk is almost unreal looking, I would have hugged the tree myself….it sounds like that tree hugged you back(smile):)

  • I still feel its softness! I think once you have felt this tree or one like it you will always remember it.

    Yes, so true. In the past few years I have lost five people from my close family. I’m not being sentimental. They were very old or sick and it was good for them But I deeply feel that I will see them again. There, now, my street cred’s ruined!!

    Your welcome. Have two. I must go and get some sleep. Two late nights in a row makes me talk too much. LOL God bless, Agnes:))

  • Sleep good its late here too 1:30am so maybe I do the same! See ya

    Looks like a special place to me!!! Were the trees really that red? And the young man who waits for his love … perhaps she is waiting for him too but in another plac. And because it was dark and they both thought they remembered the exact place to go, they are actually waiting in different places. Ah … love will conquer in the end and they will “bump” into each other in another place when they least expect it. THAT is what I see … :)
    How are David, taking good care of the Mustang?

  • Judy the person in the poem she is no longer with us so hes waiting for his demise too! And if he never sees her he will wait until the end of time when the sun shines no more.
    Mustangs out with your friend !
