{October 25, 2013}   I’ll Wait

wait
today your voice floated over the unseeable wires
through layers of clouds and all that cyber junk up there
it all gets tangled up sometimes,
meanings misconstrued
projected fears can drive the day over a cliff
but only if you let it,
so you count to 5 because 10 is too long
and hope the meaning beneath the meaning is heard
it isn’t always easy, hearing the unsaid,
connecting dots where none exist
doing it all with a smile, even though you can’t see it
i smile anyway
because i always hear the tinge of hope in your voice , they couldn’t take that from you
it’s there in your inflection, no doubt who is in charge,
and no doubt at all, i can wait forever.
As long as it takes.
