Awaiting His Return

Awaiting His Return

1 min
6.9K


As the new dawn was about to descend

Lifting the cloak of another night

A sign of a new beginning

A whole new canvas to fill with colours

As white as the snow outside

Someone, somewhere waited with longing in her eyes

They shimmered with the unshed tears

Like the stars of the fading night

The pain and the sorrow kept her awake

Taking away the drowsy sleep

As she waited, eyes on the door

Tired as she sat on the stiff chair

Her home decorated to welcome the new year

With it her beloved, her life

Her uncertainty was taking a toll

As she feared he might not return

Her feeble strength might give way

While she fought against hope

My heart went out to the old mother

Who lost her son to fate

But hope is what she retains

With a table of delicacies

Awaiting his return.
