Lady In Waiting

Lilly pads sway restlessly on their anchorsThe cool water laps against the shoreAnd the breeze rustles the tree branches It is here that she waits for youWith daisies in her fiery red hair Her arms stretch to the skyYearning for your touch, your smell Your name passes from her lips to the wind Precious cargo to carry across the landCan you hear her where you stand? She waits for you even nowAs night slowly closes in Its cold fingers raising the Little hairs on her outstretched arms And now the daises are droopingAnd her arms are growing slack  The lilly pads have ceased to swayThe water has grown stillAs the moon stares from the sky The only witness to her despair
