He knew where she lived,
And he knew the time she should have arrived.
The city was a busy place –
But only one thing made his heart race.
The time slipped by:
His mind filled with reasons why.
She wasn’t coming,
And he felt his heart breaking.
He knew one thing:
In the dead of winter, or the heat of spring
He would wait for her.
He would still whisper
But he would never be the same.
