Waiting For You

Updated on March 1, 2018


Every inch of my body, every cell can attest

To the fact that I really don't get any rest.

My brain can tell you it's tired of racing.

My legs would ask me to please stop pacing.

This is not the way I want it to be.

I just wish you were here with me.


My heart is bleeding, my soul is crying.

Often times I feel like dying.

With you here my life would be complete.
Never again would I drag my feet.

I'd hold my head high and walk with a bounce.

I'd revel in life – I'd drink every ounce.


I'd dance and I'd laugh and I'd soak in the sun.

If you were here you'd know, the fun's just begun.

The dancing, the swimming, the walks on the beach.

I've got it right here – it's all within reach.

But without you I just can't have any fun.

Just wait 'til you visit. Wait 'til you come.


We'll show you a good time – a night on the town.

We'll show you the sights and take you around.

Never again would you want to go back.

So go get ready. Go ahead and pack.

I can't wait to see your beautiful face.

Your loving eyes, your gentle embrace.


These things are the reason I draw breath.

I just can't help it – I love you to death.

I know you're curious and you want to see.

So come on, indulge in the mystery.

I miss you so much. I long for your kiss.

If I got started I could make you a list.


Your eyes, your arms, your shoulders, your smile.

The list goes on for miles and miles.

Your laugh, your comments, the way you say “stat”.

God, I just love it. I love all of that.

Once you come here, you cannot leave.

I'll hold you in my custody.


So come on down and you're mine for keeps.

Don't you realize, true love never sleeps?
