Waiting for You

I finally found someone that I want to keep...

Some days, you just need to get away

From all of the chaos that is in the way

Back to the roots from which you came

To clear your mind 

Starting right now

To remember just what life has given you

With gentle tears, I slowly weep

I finally found someone that I want to keep

Terrified by what beholds within the depths of the unknown

I try and I try to only get through

to the side that reaches you

I pray day and night in hopes that you may see

How much it is that you mean to me

Just like a fence in the rustic world

I endure the weather to wait once more

Withering away with slivers and shards

Hoping that one day 

I too can reach the stars
