How long must I wait before you appear?
Must I wait forever before you come to my rescue?
Are you my knight in shining armor as I envisaged?
Do you enjoy making promises and yet always fail?
I’ve been sitting by the window pane waiting for your arrival,
You got me busy doing the silliest thing … counting the raindrops.
Yes, I’ve been counting the eavesdrop from the rooftop to the ground,
Who would have thought I would be in this position waiting for you again?
Here I am all dressed up, panning my eyes up and down, left and right, waiting for you.
I angrily stare down at every innocent soul who walks up the street,
I can’t help but analyze every human frame and shadow that passes by.
Believe me, when I say this, they are nothing like you in any shape or form.
Oh, my dear! There goes the terrible thunder striking heavily on my roof again,
I see the flashes of lightning in the sky as people walk quickly in the streets,
I see a display of umbrellas in rainbow colors and there is a rainbow in the sky now,
As stated by someone very wise whom I met, every cloud has a silver lining.
I guess all these means something magical will emerge from this treacherous wait.
Later. Sadly, you arrived later than expected, and as you can see, the party is over now!
