I will wait with patience . . .

I am a phantasm

I await you in the pale

My footsteps fall silently,

A whisper upon the trail


I wait for you with patience

What else consumes my life

I stand upon the bridge

Awaiting your distant cry


I am not what you expected

Surely, not the one you wanted

I leave your world to tend to my own

But I will return to haunt it


Remember me in quiet times

Honour the life we shared

I may no longer be with you,

But I will wait for you there





I will wait for you here

Beyond the bridge between our worlds

But please, for me, vow

Do not cry


There’s nowhere I would go

I will wait with patience

Live for us on every day

I will see you next time


There’s so much more yet for you to do

My time came too soon, but came nonetheless

They’re never easy words, but they’re true just the same

It was a necessary thing


Our love will see you through

You are never alone in your heart

These were the final words I said to you.

I hope with all my heart these words will stay with you and help relieve the sting
