Waiting in vain

You told me to wait

and I did wait for you.

The sunlight faded,

and the day turned into twilight.

The breeze only grew stronger,

and the cold only made me shiver.

I still waited for you.

And you…

never returned.

    A wait is never in vain, when one waits for something or someone then something is always received. The person in this case that waited got an answer to their questions that was in the mind that they silently didn’t ask. But a farmer ask for rain on one day doesn’t mean they won’t get it on another, at the same time they must improvise because they still want to continue to grow without depending on something else that may or may not come. You are that strong thinker and waiting is not in you, one should wait for you…not the other way around.🌹

      Yes, that’s true. Thank you for your flattery Roy but I think you’re overestimating me now. 🙂

        No need to thank me lovely and it’s not flattery when the words are true, it’s just called the truth.❤️. Flattery is for coaxing, I tell you this because I mean it. And overestimating, no….that’s only in your opinion. You don’t know how special you are, like I do.🌹
        Feel free to agree.😉
