Longing

In hours of longing
Nights passed in singing
Days went dragging
Rain kept pouring
Cold was creeping

In hours of longing
Eyes fallen for praying
Wind kept playing
Hands itched for begging
Spirit stopped from asking

In hours of longing
Lips were drying
Drums were dying
Hope was crying
Heart kept breaking

In hours of longing
Silence made beating
Diary told living
World taught leaving
Life coached smiling

In hours of longing
Salt was my eating
Sweet was my dreaming
My dreams kept falling
My longing is undying
