I wait and I wait for a message from you,

Though I know that you're busy, you've got stuff to do.

You might be out of sight but you're way on my mind

And I try to be generous, not to think you unkind.


I glance at my watch, I'm still here all alone.

I keep looking for mail and, again, check my phone.

I try to stay upbeat and not to feel blue

But I'm all on my lonesome and thinking of you.


I find myself antsy, not quite able to rest

And you've been so silent, it feels like a test.

Our lives carry on but that's not about us,

I should just keep my mouth shut and not cause a fuss.


But I need your attention, a kind word or two.

Are you thinking of me like I'm thinking of you?

Do you miss my presence, my words and my voice?

I can't get you out of my head, I've no choice.


I wish I was near you, could reach out and touch.

I want to say nothing but I crave you so much.

Your hands on my body, your tongue on my lips

I'd feel almost dizzy, your hands on my hips.


Even though you're not with me, you are here in my head.

There's so much to say yet so much left unsaid.

I want to be with you but that can't transpire

And we knew just to try would be playing with fire.


The way that you look at me makes my heart soar

And I know that it's worth it, but still I want more.

I know that you love me, I know that it’s true

You can bank on the fact of how much I love you.


Yet to choose life with you means to live life alone

And I can't 'unremember' the things that we've done.

I love you my darling and wish we were free

But freedom's unfair when it can't include me.
