Wait For Me – A Response to a Romance Challenge

Wait for me

Said the smiling be-freckled face.

Wait for me after

They were handed testamurs

Smiling for the photographer and

For the sheer delight

A degree of success

From the lectures and tuts and


Bachelors all!

Wait for me after

Crowds came

Faces, hands, and places on the lawn

But he and




Wait for me after

He didn’t.

Not then.

But after, yes!

Many times


And after that.


She was gone.

  1. Oh the loss in this one… It’s sad how sometimes life doesn’t give us second chances. I’d love to reblog this on my blog as part of the Romance Fortnight. I’ll be reblogging this next Saturday, 24th February. I hope that is alright. Thanks again 🙂

    1. You know, I thought I could not come up with a poem in the time-frame. But, as I recalled stories that I knew, this one resurfaced. Yes, you can reblog. I’d be honoured.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
