Three Weeks

The countdown begins

clock watch, clock watch

second hand slips

backwards, it seems

taking so long

to meet the hour

and yet these hours

fall into the days

of the three weeks I wait

seemingly eternity

to be with you again

no longer to watch

this damned law-abiding clock

which ticks down by the second

and not by the hour

making me ache

with the longing and pain

in just waiting

just waiting

to be with you again
