It Waits

Regina Puckett


I’ve flown close to the ground

I’ve flown high up in the sky

My mouth has curved into a frown

These lips have smothered a cry

My nights have been filled dreams

My nights have been filled with joy

I’ve followed along on moonbeams

I’ve walked along beside a sweet boy

I’ve grasp for things way out of my reach

I’ve been given things I never wanted

I’ve rejected many lessons life did teach

I’ve looked hate straight in the face – undaunted

Of everything I desired, I wanted love most of all

It was always just somewhere around the next bend

But sometimes loves only watches us trip and fall

And it waits for the special spark in our eyes to end
