I watched & waited to see the end come Knowing it was coming but not wanting it done. I watched & waited Aware that she was there Hoping he'd see How much it hurt & care. I watched & waited Holding him close to my heart Waiting for our New life to start. I watched & waited Wondering if he knew How much I loved him And what I was going through. I watched & waited Thinking of his good Wanting him to do As he knew he should. I watched & waited Hoping he'd know I know So if love was important She would go. I watched & waited To hear him say He no longer Wanted me to stay. I watched until... I saw despite loving him so I'd have to Let him go. I waited until... I waited in vain Realizing I couldn't continue the same. Patience learns much that it will tell Subsequently, I write this Circumspect Farewell.
