I Wait For You
Francisco Arcellana (6 September 1916 - 1 August 2002 / Santa Cruz, Manila / Philippines)

I Wait For You

I wait for you
ready to leap at you
from every corner
at every turn
gathered to spring at you
from the shadow
of every tree
this is an ambush
but I am not the assassin
I wait, not with a knife,
but love, heavy, dripping in my hands.
