How Long Do You Wait?

How long do you wait?

The agonizing silence.

The dread and dismay you feel as you wonder what went wrong.

The gloom and desperation you feel as you reach out to nothing. 

How long do you wait?

The harrowing silence. 

Dejection and grief you feel as you wonder what went wrong.

The sadness and heartache you feel as you reach out to nothing. 

The silence rings in your ears as you feel nothing. 

You reach out and grasp but it is only figments of what was.
