December 22, 2014

We wait...
For the sun to rise,
For our coffee to be the perfect blend of milk and sugar,
For lunch breaks,
For laughter over cooking dinner,
For the comfort in stretching your legs out over your boyfriend’s lap on the couch, and
For the moon to shine through your window.
We wait for December,
For the holidays,
For the excitement of your first Christmas tree in a new apartment,
For the arrival of family,
For the tears to stream down your face over an inside joke with your friends,
For perfect days full of a sisterly bond no one can break,
For today…
And then we wait again for tomorrow,
And then tomorrow comes and we wait some more.
We wait for the struggle of goodbyes,
 and we beg for our voices not to crack when we say,
“When are you coming home next? I really can’t wait…”
And just like that, we find ourselves moving through days, and months, and seasons,
holding out for new excitements, and new endeavors… 
and while we don't even realize we are doing it,
we wait...
