Was it worth the sleepless nights
the counting of passing days
the hours that trickle by?
Was it worth waiting for the morn
to feel its idle touch
to bathe in its glorious warmth?
Was it worth watching the stars
dancing in the sky
wondering if you see them too?
Was it worth sending kisses
to the wind to place upon your cheeks
to remind you of me?
Was it worth the wait
the absence of words
still trusting even in the dark?
Was it worth to hear even an echo
of your voice in my dreams
to carry it with me as I open my eyes?
Was it worth the effort given
the moments built and cherished
in the light of where we are now?
Was it everything I thought it would be
attempting to reconnect into your life
the silence in the other line?
