Tahira Rehman

I shall await you

I shall await you, like the stars
await the sky. I shall watch your face,
like the sea watches the sunset.
I shall face my future and accept,
like the waterfall returning to its duty.
I shall remain beautiful, like the red,
red rose.  I shall turn away from the ticking of time,
as life does to us all one day. I shall
use the pen to speak to you, you are worth no
less. I shall keep you close, like the children
to their dreams. I shall learn from the past,
as a lesson to never be forgotten. And I shall work
no more, trying to catch fate before it yearns to be
what it will always be. I shall await you,
like the sky awaits the stars.
