still waiting

scotland in spring by anelephantcant

scotland in spring by anelephantcant

sometimes the darkness seeps in
troubles the calmest soul
I don’t know what the price is
but pain takes a certain toll

then restlessness invades me
always saying I should roam
but this attack is different
tells me now to think of home

for this has been a long trip
I scarce remember when it started
but I do recall the loving heart
that broke when I departed

winter on the Med has passed
I long for Scotland in the spring
small flowers pink on cherry trees
smiles to make an old heart sing

now of course the doubts set in
do I gamble my last chance
will her arms slip around my neck
and allow me one last dance

can I make my dream come true
or am I hallucinating
has she long ago forgotten me
or perhaps is she still waiting

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
