|Looking Into the Horizon
Author: RainbowHearts PM

I feel that when she was alive, I didn't go and see her and spend much time with her, even though she lived right down the street from me. I wish I had more time with her now.Rated: Fiction K - English - Words: 193 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 12-12-07 - Status: Complete - id: 2449510

I stand here wiggling my toes in the wet sand,
I feel the tide ripple around my ankles,
I am looking into the horizon at the setting sun,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm waiting for you.
You had always come before,
You had always waited so patiently,
I planned to come every time
But the hustle and bustle of the world caught me first,
I never meant to hurt you,
I never meant to leave you standing alone in the dark.
Now you're gone,
And I've lost my chance to watch the sunset with you,
I wish you were here now,
I wish you could wiggle your toes in the sand with me
As we walk along the shore telling each other stories.
I am so sorry I wasn't there for you when you needed me,
I realize now that I needed you too,
And I still do.
One day we will see each other again,
And I promise I won't pass up the chance to spend time talking to you,
Or just watching the horizon with you.
I miss you.
I love you.
