Favorite Quote:
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


She's waiting for him

Misses his incessant jabbering

What will she do when he returns?

Ice-cream and cake?

A song?

A hug?

She settles down as it becomes dark

The streetlights flick on

And still he has not come

Midnight

And still she is waiting

 

Days turn into weeks

Weeks into months

Months into years and

Years into forever

 

Her hair is long and white

She is 99.9 years old

And still she is waiting
