Why Am I Waiting ?



Why Am I Waiting ?


i sit here waiting for

the impossible to happen –

but this can’t be happening to me –

what have i done to deserve this ?

is it my fate to wait my life away ?

I hurt inside from holding back my tears.

but why wait ?

it really doesn’t matter any more

i’m used to it now –

so i’ll be here when you decide to love me.
