Alone I wait for you. 

Alone for so long that when the cold comes it does so as a friend.

Alone for so long that my fingers are stiff from the lack of your hand's warmth in mine.

Alone for so long that each hopeful breath I take for you fades into the cold stabbing air around me crushing any hope that surrounds my heart.

Alone for so long that my vision blurs and not from the cold but from tears that are the falling hope of you.

Alone for so long I shake because you no longer hold me, still.

Alone for so long that the name I say to beccon you to my side is slurred without form and becomes but a whisper.

Alone for so long everytime that I dip into the darkness that is my mind and see your face.

Alone for so long that my heart's beat so strong yearning for you is nothing but a soft mummer.

Alone for so long that though my love for you is so deep that my breath no longer is but a shallow gasp.

Alone for so long that I no longer care for anything but you...

I waited for you so long that death now greeted me as a friend.

I waited for you so long no longer is there any breath to fade into the air.

I waited for you so long no longer are there tears for you.

I waited for you so long no longer do I call your name for your hopeful return.

I waited for you so long no longer do I see your face, no longer is my head a stir for you and no longer do I care for you. 

In waiting for you to come back I grew cold in the void of emptiness you left me in. It is not till I drift into slumber do I see I was too focused on the warmth of you cold heart to save myself.
