She stands gazing into the distant horizon
Waiting….for a glimpse.
The lashing winds from faraway lands
Murmurs to her of a love
That brings a smile to her hungry lips.
Every line etched on her face
Has a story to tell….
Tales of adventure and misadventure
Of pain and longing
Of joy and happiness
Of agony and ecstasy.

She shivers as darkness gathers around her
Remembering ….the warmth  
Of that first embrace.
Arms that had engulfed her
With her sorrows, woes and tragedies.
A lost soul, floundering
In the maze of her life
Till he showed her….
A life of love laden days
Of respect and dignity
Of promise and trust.

She listens to the rustle of falling leaves
Mocking and cackling at her
Waiting…..eternally for a promise
Given in a moment of tenderness.
Her dark luminous eyes are pools of dying embers
Hiding in their depths her buried desires and passion.
An unfaltering silhouette,
A sentry of timelessness
She waits….for him.
Months, seasons, years roll into decades…
Yet, for her the hands of time stand still,
Mourning and yet pregnant with hope
She waits…..her endless vigil.

    I dunno why, but i love these lines particularly "She listens to the rustle of falling leaves
    Mocking and cackling at her
    Waiting…..eternally for a promise
    Given in a moment of tenderness."
