A sigh

A sigh

not because it carries the note of a thousand unspoken hurts and longings and desires

but because it carries hope.

They say the wait will be worth it

but with this, now, I know, the weight will also be worth it.

So worth it.

I’ll sigh a thousand times

for every day without you.

I’ll sigh until one day I rest against you, and breathe away the hurt,

the wait,

the weight.

And the next breath I take will be yours.

The End
