I’ll Wait

It’s funny as I type this now being 40. Writing in high school being 15 and saying that I would wait 40 years and I knew that I would have gray hair. It’s been 25 years and I do believe I would classify as “old” to a teen and I do have a few gray hairs. I have 2 children that are older than when I wrote this. Funny looking back and seeing my mind set at that time.

I’ll wait forever
For you to come
To say you love me
I’m the only one

I’ll wait for a year
And you are not ready
I’ll wait some more
For us to go steady

I’ll wait for 10 years
When we are all grown
And our lives have found
What seed we have sown

I’ll wait for 40 years
And we are all old
And have gray hair too
But you have not told

I’ll wait forever
For you to come
To say you love me
I’m the only one
