"Wait Another Day"

Wait another day,
Your heart can bear the weight;
Wait another lonely day,
You don’t have to mark the date
Of your love departing,
Days in the sun are returning -
They miss you just as much,
And the way sand and skin touch.

Wait another day,
There’s no need to cry;
Wait another rainy day,
You’ll soon hang your tears out to dry,
And your Gene Kelly shoes
Will bring back those steps you loosed
On that fateful day by the Seine -
If ever there’s more to give, you can.

But don’t wait another moment
To break free from the torment
That imprisons your smiles -
People queue up for them for miles;
Don’t wait another minute
To live again, if you mean it,
But then waiting really is a virtue -
Why, it leads me to you!

The germ of this poem sneaked up on me one night when I was sitting up in bed trying to put some thoughts into words. I'm glad it's well-received.
