Waiting for love

I sit quietly
I do not speak
I wait alone
For the one I seek

One who is kind
And one who is true
One not afraid
To say "I love you"

Silently waiting
And silently searching
All the while
My heart is lurching

Whenever I think
I may have found
The one I seek
My heart will pound

Then I see
That all along
I was blind
And I was wrong

Are you the one?
And if you are
I wish so deeply
Upon a star

That you will come quickly
For I can not wait
Soon it will be
Far too late

But forever alone
It seems I sit
I begin to wonder
If love is worth it

And then it is over
And finally I see
That no matter how much I love
None will ever love me.
