I Count The Seconds

I count the seconds
As the time comes near.
I know as I wait
That pain will be here.

I don't want to hurt.
I don't understand why.
I don't want this pain.
I don't want to cry.

I want to be loved.
I want a hand to hold.
I want a shoulder to cry on.
I want loving words to be told.

I sit here so quiet
In silent sorrow,
Praying to God
That I might see tomorrow.

But until then,
I count the seconds.
