Patience and Longing

You leave me lying here.
Longing, oh, longing.
And you leave.
"I'll be back," you say.
But you leave me here.

So I wait for your return.
Longing, oh, longing.
As you left.
"Don't leave me," I said.
But you went.

You left me years ago.
Longing, oh, longing.
Though you left,
"I will be here," I say.
And I am waiting.

I will always wait.
Longing, oh, longing.

The End
