In The Silence of the Dark

by T. Pacheco

I lay in bed at night, in the silence of the dark, listening, wondering when I will hear your footsteps
I try to keep my eyes open, I want to wait for you but they grow heavy
I imagine you in my mind, your eyes staring back at me I hear your motorcycle in the distance
Your coming, your coming for me
I can almost smell you, feel your touch
Where are you? The sound moves closer and then stops
Quiet footsteps slowly make their way to my window
My heart pounds ever so fast, you are here and I can breathe again
The window opens and you come into my darkness and you bring light
You come to me, touch my face and kiss me awake
We hold each other and mold into one person, one thought, one soul
How I love you, How I waited so long for you to be mine
The wait is over, I can live because you are my life
Now, forever and always
