The waiting end

a poem by Maryse Saldanha

Watchful eyes await your return
Longing ears eager your voice to hear
Lonely arms want to hold you near
Pining I await your return

The time though short seems far too long
Like ages between us have come and gone
Yet as if just minutes before you lay in my arms
Your body scents play fresh on my mind

Come to me my beloved my sweet
Let me hold you close and your sweetness feel
Let us dance together like there is no end
Let us feel the joy as the waiting now ends
