Waiting

lost in a sea of
faces that are all the same
with their fear and longing
all waiting to be found
by that one
the only one
to add their voice
to the music
humming deep inside
to weave it into a song
that reaches the clouds
with its sweetness
and its glory
that makes the birds
jealous with envy
for the joy
that can only be
expressed by
two souls
joining together
singing in harmony
filling the air
with clarity
and hope
for the hopeless
still lost in the sea of
faces made the same
with the fear
of never finding the one
with longing
for that one
who will make them whole
to fill the darkness inside
with warmth and light
to release them
from the salty waters
tears of the lonely
into the sky
filling their wings
with a breeze so tender
they float softly to the
blue spaces above.

Came to me…

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Beautifully written Sybille, all waiting for the one. I wonder how often we don’t even see them.

  • Very true Tony, or how often we lose them due to circumstances beyond our control. :-(
