Waiting for You to Come Home


I hugged you tighter
than I ever have
and cried when
you said goodbye.


I'm missing you already,
counting the hours
until I see you again.


I hope absence
brings us closer
because right now

it's tearing my heart apart.


I cling to the memories
of that last perfect kiss
and the things you said
that made me yours.


I'm just waiting now,
waiting for you
to come home.
