Song of Patient Waiting

What does it take, my dear?
For your fear to melt away
I’m waiting for the break of day
And now you’ve gone and left me

Why do you cry, my dear?
Eyes wet with tears, you fade
And everything that we’ve made
Is slowly lost to bad memories

I wrote you a song, my dear
Hope is mere days from now
I’ve told myself, because I’m down
Ever since you left your honeybee

So listen close to me, my dear
I’ll sing you this soft poetry
And hope that you’ll return to me
By the end of the lonely night

I wish I only knew, my dear
Why you’ve up and gone away
And filled my heart with dismay
While winter eats my frozen soul

So listen close to me, my dear
I’ll sing you this soft poetry
And hope that you’ll return to me
By the end of this lonely season
