For Love's Sake


Published: October 2007

I'm so tired of this empty feeling
I'm so tired of being alone
I lay here staring at the ceiling
Waiting by the phone

I jump when the phone rings
It brings a smile to my face
When he hangs up my heart stings
And I sink back into my lonely place

I wish and I dream
That we'll be together soon
I can't wait until we can look up hand in hand
At the stars and at the moon

I yearn for his kisses
His touch - His embrace
I can't wait for Thursdays
When I get to see his face

I'm flooded with thoughts of him
In my heart, soul, and mind
I imagine his touch
So gentle and kind

I try not to weep
I hope he doesn't hear my cries
But I can't stop the tears
Falling from my eyes

I cry a thousand tears
And think - how much more can I take?
But in my heart I know I'd wait a thousand years
All for love's sake

This poem is amazing! It explains this relationship between my friend and I that I really like. I came to tears because this is how everything is happening. I want him so bad but he doesn't want me and no matter how hard I try I will always love him no matter what! Thanks for the poem!

Right when I read this poem my eyes filled like an over flowing sea. It's ironic because Thursday is the only day I get to see mine too. He will be incarcerated for the next few years, but my love is so strong for him. We have two kids together that mean the world to me. He's someone I will never replace. I love you C.H. forever!!!
