Emptiness In Waiting.

Emptiness In Waiting.

Lately I’ve been weakened,
By the things I can’t control,
Creating distance like a rocket,
Between me and my soul,
I can only hope you’ll see,
Beneath my outer woe,
The love here waiting for you,
But alas, it’s only hope,

And in my cold reality,
O’, why would someone wait for me,
I’ve nothing now to offer you,
My sky is often dismal blue,

The world outside is far too rough,
O’, here inside I’m full of love,
But the emptiness in waiting is not enough,

Here inside my trouble,
I can’t expect for you to know,
The pain of my perception,
In the fear I often hold,
O’, somewhere in the distance,
Just beyond life’s recent view,
Is the lonely, silent promise,
Of the love I have for you,

And in my cold reality,
O’, why would someone wait for me,
I’ve nothing now to offer you,
My sky is often dismal blue,

The world outside is far too rough,
O’, here inside I’m full of love,
But the emptiness in waiting is not enough,

Lately I’ve been shattered,
By the emptiness in you,
Created by the pressure,
From my overwhelming truth,
How long can love survive,
Bound inside my angry doubt,
I have so much love here for you,
But my time is running out,

And in my cold reality,
O’, why would someone wait for me,
I’ve nothing now to offer you,
My sky is often dismal blue,

The world outside is far too rough,
O’, here inside I’m full of love,
But the emptiness in waiting is not enough,

O’, honey, it’s just lately I’m not enough,
O’, the emptiness in waiting is not enough.
