About the Poem

For all the over-the-road truck drivers wives and girlfriends who have spent time waiting for them to come home, or anyone who spends large amounts of time till they see their special someone again. They will understand this poem.

Anticipation

Candles burning
sheets turned down
anticipation abounds.

Time passes slowly
quiet as a mouse
stars falling
earth standing still.

Waiting
eternally waiting
suspense filled evening.

The phone rings
You say my name
come get me
I am here.

Passion explodes
excitement is in the air
soon you will be here.

Candles burning low
Sheets thrown down
Passion spent
Boytoy's in town.
